Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg will be immortalized in a comic book

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment


Mark Zuckerberg does not have to pay for press because he keeps getting free press.  On Friday he will be immortalized in the movie titled “The Social Network,” which hits theaters on Oct. 1.  The writer of the movie will not say if the movie is based on fact or fiction, however he will say Mark Zuckerberg is a huge focus of the movie.

On the heels of the movie will be a giant-sized 48-page unauthorized comic book that will also focus Silicon Valley’s latest young billionaire, Zuckerberg.  The comic book will be available in December for $6.99.  Bluewater Productions Inc. will be the publisher for the comic book.

The writer of the comic book has this to say

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today.  He left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here. No one is totally innocent in this story. I try to represent each of the major players’ point of view.”

Bluewater President Darren G. Davis has this to say

“We are trying to tell these people’s story to a new demographic.  Some people pick it up as a learning tool and some as a collectible. We see it as a talking conversation starter.”

The oldest Academy Award acting nominee and co-star of ‘Titanic’ Gloria Stuart died at her Los Angeles home on Monday of respiratory failure. She was 100.

Stuart’s daughter Sylvia Thompson said she beat breast cancer 20 years ago and was diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago.

“She did not believe in illness. She paid no attention to it, and it served her well,” Thompson said. “She had a great life. I’m not sad. I’m happy for her.”

“I am so saddened to hear of the loss of this remarkable woman,” Kate Winslet said. “I feel blessed to have met her, known her and to have acted alongside her. Anyone who spent time in her presence will know what an extraordinary shining light she truly was. She will be deeply missed

“The sparkle in her eye was as bright at her hundredth birthday party as it was when I first met her in 1996, and, I’m sure, as it was when she was a silver screen star in the early 30’s or a young girl running through the orange orchards of Santa Monica in 1920,” James Cameron said.

“An amazingly sweet person, a fantastic actress, and someone who always fought for what she believed in. She was one of the last great actresses from the Golden era of Hollywood,” DiCaprio said in a statement through his publicist. “I was honored to have worked along side her. She will be missed,” he said.

Georgia thinks boring names for street signs may save his county $17k a year

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment

McIntosh County Commissioner Mark Douglas says replacing stolen signs in his county are costing his area approximately $17,000 a year.

Douglas says his county, which is located about 60 miles south of Savannah, Georgia is losing approximately 550 street signs a year.

According to Douglas, apparently folks are stealing street signs with names like Boone’s Farm, Mary Jane, Green Acres, Harmony Hill and more.  He also feels that people have some sort of connection with the names by either liking the television shows or alcohol and or drug nicknames they are affiliated with.

Wyoming man covers himself in white latex paint to avoid Taser

September 26, 2010 Leave a comment

Brian Mattert assumed if he covered himself in white latex paint, and told police officers that he would die if they hit him with a Taser that police would not use a Taser gun on him.

Well, the officers called his bluff and hit him two times with a stun gun.  Mattert lived to be cuffed and hauled off to jail.

The painted and Taser filled day for Mattert started when Cheyenne police were called to Mattert’s house on a domestic violence call.

Mattert added a few more charges to domestic violence for scuffling with police, along with a cleaning bill for dirtying the clothing of the officers.
