Well maybe this isn’t irony, maybe it’s just an example of coincidence, but here we go: a tree planted in memorial of Beatle George Harrison was destroyed by actual beetles. And I just had to share, because, come on. That’s gold, Jerry, gold!
A tree planted to honor of the memory of the Beatles songwriter George Harrison has been killed by actual beetles. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the living local monument fell victim to an infestation of insects that couldn’t be bested. According to Councilman Tom LaBonge, the 10-foot-tall pine planted in 2004 bit the dust only recently, and a new one will be planted in its stead shortly.
Harrison’s last years were spent living in L.A. — he died there at 58 in late 2001, and was cremated at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The so-called George Harrison Tree was accompanied by a plaque reading: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” It includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: “For the forest to be green, each tree must be green”
Personally, I’m a huge Beatles fan, so I say, let’s use this as a Beatles post. What’s your fave Beatles song? Album? Think they’re overrated? Go ahead and rant here, Brian Wilson.

Farrah Abraham may be best known for exploiting her teen pregnancy on TV and using that as a catalyst to become a porn star and to “write” an erotica novel, but the tide’s changing and she’s ready to start a new chapter in her life… as an actress in Christian films.
From US Weekly:
“I will be acting in two movies, and I’m kind of staying closer to roles that are Christian-based,” she revealed.
Sorry, I think my brain blanked out there.
Look, I’m not saying that people can’t change, or that Christianity means being some prim and proper nun-like figure. What I am saying is that that’s not what’s happening here. I don’t for one second believe that she’s trying to make a change or that she has any deep-seated Christian faith. It’s just laughable.
More laughable still: anyone producing a Christian movie wanting to cast Farrah Abraham.

Bow down to your future king, because Prince George is celebrating his first birthday today and he’s also learning how to walk! The above photo is ADORABLE – look at those chubby cheeks! (A news anchor over here described them as “more magnificent than ever!” during this morning’s broadcast, lolz.)
From The Daily Mail:
The little royal is seen walking in the new adorable snapshot with his arms flailing in the air. He dons Petit Bateau denim overalls, a navy polo shirt and a well-worn pair of Early Days Alex Pre-Walker shoes in navy leather. Slightly grinning, Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s son also shows off his light blonde locks and chubby cheeks.
The celebrations for Prince George have just begun. This week, Kate will be throwing a party on his actual birthday, and most of the royal and Middleton families are expected to attend. It will most likely be a tea party indoors, at their Kensington Palace home but “may extend to the garden if the weather remains glorious,” the source adds.
Sounds… thrilling. An indoor tea party? Count me in… especially if there are petits fours (or “fondant fancies”, as they’re called here).

This one probably only applies to 12-year-olds and the parents of 12-year-olds, but here goes nothing anyway. One Direction are releasing a new concert film called Where We Are, an update to their previous release, This Is Us.
Here’s the guys announcing this POS that will no doubt make them even richer:

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott decided to try and make some cash off the fact that Dean can’t keep it in his pants, so they filmed a reality show about their marriage and made themselves look even worse in the process. Now it seems like Kendra Wilkinson might be following in their footsteps, as she plans on covering her marriage problems with Hank Baskett on the show – because in case you missed the news, he was apparently messing around with a transsexual prostitute while she was pregnant with their second kid.
A source close to Kendra on Top, Wilkinson’s reality show on WE tv, said the star won’t leave fans out of the loop following news that her husband Hank Baskett cheated on her earlier this year with a transsexual.
“Hank and Kendra are fully engaged in the show,” the source said. “People who want to see the two of them will definitely see the two of them. The cameras have been rolling. Viewers will get to see everything.”
Ay carumba. Does anyone really care about the sordid details of their relationship? Do THEY not care about keeping anything private? I seriously wonder what’s wrong with people. It seems privacy is an outdated notion in 2014.
