James Bond ‘SKYFALL’ Official Poster and Synopsis…Oh, Daniel Craig!

Hey! Who wants to stare at Daniel Craig all bloody day read the synopsis for the latest James Bond film, SKYFALL?? I do!


In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M (JUDI DENCH) is tested as her past returns to haunt her. 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

When Bond’s latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (RALPH FIENNES), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (NAOMIE HARRIS) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (JAVIER BARDEM), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

Eeeeeep!  Can’t. WAIT.

Annette? Are you with me?


Serena Williams Finds Love?

Serena Williams and Patrick Mouratoglou


Serena and Venus Williams gave The New York Times a relatively intimate look into their lives for a profile last month. Understandably the sisters fiercely guard their privacy, but the reporter was invited inside Serena’s Paris apartment. Dressed in a low key fashion, she was relaxed in a local marketplace and easily conversed in French.

New pictures posted by OnTheGoTennis would suggest that her fluency came the way it does for many American women living abroad, through a native speaking boyfriend. In this case highly esteemed tennis coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, who is a recent public addition to Serena’s team. During her run to the US Open Championship in New York earlier this week Serena credited him with “keeping her calm“. Feel free to insert your own off color joke here!

This might be considered a lateral move from her last partner, the rapper/ actor, Common, but chances are we will get ZERO confirmation of a coupling from the Williams Camp.

In addition to becoming The US Open winner, Serena was Wimbledon champ and the Olympic Gold medalist. With love like a cherry on top, no wonder she was c-walking!

The Civil Wars Postpone European Shows

Oh dear.  The Civil Wars have had to postpone several European concert dates from March 26 through April 4, 2012 due to a serious illness in the band’s immediate family.  No further details have been given due to the personal nature of the situation.


The popular duo is made up of Joy Williams and John Paul White. The trip to Europe is their first tour overseas. They’ll reschedule shows in Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands and Turkey. The news release says new dates will be announced next week.

John Paul White and Joy Williams

The Southern Gothic folk duo has charted one of the more interesting courses to fame, winning fans like Taylor Swift before taking two Grammys in February for best folk album and best country duo/group performance.

We most certainly pray the situation doesn’t involve Joy’s pregnancy.

Good thoughts and prayers sent your way, John Paul and Joy.
