First up, former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes has been formally charged with DUI. The actress has plead not guilty to the charge which stems from an incident in April where she clipped a police car and allegedly tried to flee the scene. She later refused to submit to a chemical test to determine whether or not she'd been under the influence of alcohol at the time. So while Bynes continues to insist she doesn't drink, she's also reached out on Twitter for help from an unlikely source. A recent Tweet by the retired star asks President Obama to fire the officer who arrested her. Um, ok. I always thought the President was busy with important things. I didn't know you tweet him for help with your personal problems. If that's the case, I have some student debts I'd like cleared up if you're listening Mr. President.
No response yet from the White House regarding Bynes' request....what do you guys think? Is Bynes barking up the wrong tree?
Next up, get ready to Airtime. Internet titans Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker have just launched their social communication service that promises to offer a simple way for people to connect through video on Facebook. Airtime also claims to help people discover new contacts and friends outside their existing social network...kind of like a penis-less chatroulette. A launch party featuring Joel McHale, Jim Carrey, Olivia Munn and Jimmy Fallon showed off the service, but was mired with technical difficulties that the company is hoping to iron out before rolling out the service to over 950 million Facebook users. How about it guys? Can Airtime compete with Google Chat and Skype?
The director has made it clear that the film will have an entirely new cast and will feature some robot looks that differ from the first few films. My guess is they will look like....oh, I don't know....this...? This....? This? Or is he really going to get crazy and go with this...? Guess we will see!
