Without Facebook

Filed under: Celebrities, News, Technology — Tags: , , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 12:54 PM

I recently deactivated my Facebook account just to step away from ONE FORM of social media while I prepare for dental school finals. I was wasting my time on Gizmodo when I came across an article titled “Without Facebook, We’d Have No Sense of Self: Agree or Disagree?” and it immediately caught my attention. The article just makes a point or 2 about how Facebook reassures us about our very own existence. What I really liked was a comment made by Andrew Tarantola:

…I don’t think Facebooking prompts any form of meaningful self reflection. Logging the minutia of your life isn’t a self-reflective act, it’s self-adulation. It’s you thumping a virtual chest, screaming into the darkness of the Internet that “Hey, I’m here! I did this! Ain’t it cool?”

Does simply listing every single thing you do help you mature or grow in any manner? Is the cataloging of your existence accompanied by critical thought on those actions with an eye for future improvement? If not, then all you are doing is seeking approval–a cheap slap on the back from your FB friends to convince you that your place in the universe isn’t as insignificant a speck as everyone makes it out to be.

Disclaimer: This opinion is coming from a guy who also was never, ever, never on Facebook until Blam told him that he couldn’t work here unless he got one set up.”

I feel like this is talking about me. Or the other 900 million users. I’m guilty of wanting to convince myself that I’m more than just an insignificant blip on the timeline of the universe. Maybe I just have self esteem issues. Do we have to assume that in 20 years it is the norm to have a Facebook – to have it represent and confirm your very existence the way old photo albums or stories from your aunt about how you broke your wrist as a kid while riding your bike did 15 years ago?

Where are we going with this and is it really making our lives BETTER? I don’t think EASE or CONVENIENCE was ever the issue. If anything, we’re becoming Japan: A socially inept nation who puts priority to interacting with any form of a digital display over making intimate human connections.

Desirable Indeed

Sofia Vergara was named AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman of 2012. There shouldn’t be any surprises. She’s absolutely gorgeous, extremely funny, and clearly wonderful to be around (as seen here on Ellen). She’s amazing on Modern Family and looks like she’s getting hotter with age.

In doing so, the actress beat out a number of younger leading ladies and newcomers to lead the Top 10, such as Victoria’s Secret favorites Miranda Kerr (#4) and Candice Swanepoel (#10), rapper Nicki Minaj (#5), and actresses Emma Stone (#6) and Scarlett Johansson (#7).

Meanwhile, perennial favorites like Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie were left off the list entirely in 2012. ”

Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel aren’t too surprising considering they’re both Victoria’s Secret models, but I have mixed feelings about Nicki Minaj (who’s talented, but not entirely desirable) and Emma Stone (who’s very girl next door). Aniston is still very pretty, but I guess you don’t get points for being crazy. As for Angelina, I liked her when I was a little boy, but I grew out of that after she adopted all of Nigeria.

Jon Cryer? More Like Jon Shit

Filed under: Celebrities — Tags: , , — DBNewsWorld @ 9:17 PM

Charlie Sheen called Jon Cryer a troll. I would call him something worse. If my life was falling to shit and my friend, co-worker, and on stage brother didn’t stand up for me, he would be dead meat to me. Two and a Half Men would be called “Gay Dad With Son” if it weren’t for Charlie Sheen. Sure, Jon wants to be professional, but he should make some formal public statement saying he supports Charlie Sheen as a person, and his progress to recovery, even if he doesn’t agree with the crazy shit Charlie says. You let me down, Jon Cryer, and I don’t even know you. Imagine what you did to Charlie. You dick.

Charlie, You Crazy

Filed under: Celebrities — Tags: , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 8:48 PM

I guess Charlie Sheen wasn’t kidding when he told everyone he had tiger blood. Isn’t that shit illegal? Aren’t tigers endangered? Regardless, Charlie Sheen is going crazy with this media frenzy blitz. I’m impressed and I feel like he can redeem himself and his career if he keeps this up for long enough. I’m not sick of Charlie Sheen yet and I’m actually kind of sad Two and a Half Men is indefinitely suspended. I hope he lays off the drugs and just keeps raking in the money. He didn’t want to hire me as his intern which was upsetting, but I guess if you put two guys in a room who both may suck each other’s dicks then you have a whole new set of problems.

Smell Like a Swan

Filed under: Celebrities, Hot Chicks — Tags: , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 12:30 AM

So Academy Award nominated actress Natalie Portman has a perfume out. Nothing makes whacking off to her feel more real than potentially spraying her perfume on a napkin or your pillow and semi-suffocating yourself with it while your pleasure yourself. If this perfume smells remotely anything like a Black Swan I’m going to have to line up and pick me up a bottle. You saw how Mila Kunis muff dove , this smell must be good stuff.

Seriously, Entertainment World?

Filed under: Celebrities, Comedy — Tags: , , — DBNewsWorld @ 12:25 AM

Back in October of 2010 it was reported that child actor Angus T. Jones would be making roughly $300,000 PER EPISODE of Two and a Half Men. Look at this kid. If you have ever watched the show you know that he just plays a gigantic moron. Believe me, I know that takes SOME skill and craft, but it doesn’t take $300K worth of talent. I would consider myself lucky to be raking in $300K a YEAR at the peak of my career. But that’s entertainment for you.

Unfortunately for him his dreams of being continually overpaid will be put to a halt because of Charlie Sheen’s fucking random behavior. Actually, it’s not that random, that behavior is really expected when you do cocaine and bang porn stars all day. Now that the show is on an indefinite hiatus I may never get to be angry at an unattractive, sort of talentless, overpaid child actor ever again. If I’m lucky though, Angus Jones will get some pointers from his TV uncle and walk down the path of prostitutes, drugs, and bad hair.

Awkward Much?

Filed under: Celebrities, Hot Chicks — Tags: , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 10:05 AM

So it looks like Facebook had some event thrown by it’s “founder” Mark Zuckerberg and Katy Perry was hired to appear. I don’t know if she’s wearing heels or if Zuckerberg is just a troll, but to be fair I think I would be just as awkward around someone with 34 DD breasts. Looks like they had fun and it looks like I fucking hate my life because I don’t work at Facebook serving as Zuckerberg’s personal penis massager. I’m available if Google needs to hire one.

My Freaking Hero

Filed under: Celebrities, Comedy — Tags: , , — DBNewsWorld @ 2:29 PM

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is coming out with his book. FINALLY. I mean, this guy has a popular show, has his own workout videos, has a rap song, it was only a matter of time before he would finally write a book. Which I find a little difficult to believe because I thought he was illiterate. Just kidding, I love this guy, he’s seriously my hero if I didn’t have like real career aspirations. It sounds mean, but I say it because I love this ridiculous stereotype of a human being. I wanted to write a book similar to this, but it had nothing to do with physically working out or getting women. It was just about creeping, eating a lot, and masturbating. I figure someone out there needs insight on how to do that. Make sure you buy a copy when this comes out. This way he’s motivated to stay the way he is for years to come.

Cancer Can Suck It

Why do we give a shit when celebrities talk about issues? But we don’t give a shit when politicians, doctors, lawyers, educators, and your parents warn you about this kind of shit? Good job, asshole.

It’s Rather Silly

I saw Jessica Biel in Valentine’s Day and she played this character that had a terrible love life. In real life, she’s banging Justin Timberlake, you know, that guy from The Backstreet Boys. I think it’s absolutely absurd to think that she can’t get ass, she should only be allowed to play characters who get nothing but penis on command. At the end of the movie, she made out with Ray Charles, so I don’t know if that’s a happy ending or not.
