Ryan Reynolds is Maverick with powers,

Who joins a galactic army that cowers,

His wise-cracks worn thin,

Like the clothes Lively’s in,

Avoid this and you’ll save yourself hours.

Nawww doesn't it make you just want to hug a fluffy toy? The cutest little penguin ever washed up on the shores of New Zealand a few months ago and melted the insides of the nation. This poor flightless bird, nicknamed Happy Feet, had no idea where it had turned up. It nommed on sand and rocks by accident, causing serious health risks that needed vet attention. After all the horrific...

Well the news of the week must surely be the most unexpected, yet not super surprising, split of Canadian band Alexisonfire.

However, 7 News, previously the jock of the Australian TV news world, started listening to the same kinds of music as Ten News and decided to become indie too, moving to the 4.30pm timeslot. Ten News was overcome with fury and now...

Last week was an important week, because Taylor Momsen is finally legal. Hooray! Great girl that she is, she marked the occasion by flashing her pert post-adolescent rack at an appreciate Download Festival crowd over the weekend. Electrical tape X's or no, you can sort of make out the nipples there so it totally counts. Yes. Now all we need is for her to embrace the...

I was a child model and I turned out fine. If you don’t believe me just check my blog, Twitter, Tumblr, 4856 photos on Facebook and Flickr, YouTube channel, MySpace for my rap music, LinkedIn, Foursquare or Instragram. VALIDATE ME!


Western culture is all about the self. So it’s hard to be shocked when this mentality trickles down to parents entering their six-year-olds into...
