Metallica torture, the Segway is coming, Celeb photoshop

Cruel and Unusual Metallica: The rock band Metallica is expressing its anger towards our government. It seems that the military forces played Metallica songs in conjunction with the interrogation of members of the Iraqi regime. If you’ve heard the new album – it is cruel and unusual and the practice should be stopped immediately. Also, it has not been confirmed or denied if the military downloaded the music from Napster.

USA Today had two interesting stories this week: They national periodical did a spread on the scooter that was slated to change the world. Remember the whole “It” publicity that would revolutionize the design of our cities. The Segway scooter, which they tag with the “human transport” nomenclature to sound fancy, is hitting the public at about $5000. They have made a huge push to regulate the laws effecting the “scooter” which reaches speeds of 12.5 mph. Early owners are devastating pedestrians and sidewalks raising concerns over the application of the “scooter.” In Florida, it is still legal to operate the “human transporter” on roadways, so look out senior citizens – there’s someone going slower than you.

Likewise in the “Life” section, USA Today reported that several celebrities were upset at the cut-and-paste technique used by major magazines to put their likenesses on the covers. Julia Roberts, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Winslet were all portrayed on Redbook, Seventeen, British GQ and amongst others, using multiple pictures to fill the cover of these popular mags.

Editors make excuses to justify the need to sell magazines. Can’t imagine why they’re upset, soon George Lucas will find the perfect application of CGI to superimpose simulated likenesses without paying these celebrities for their time.
