Cindy Crawford Covered in Cream

Cindy Crawford still has it. The 43-year-old mother of two stripped off and bared all (with the help of some strategically placed shaving cream) for Allure magazine. Crawford also appears with a strange robot, rips apart a loaf of bread, and is hung by her hair.  The resulting photographs are slightly strange, but still ridiculously hot for a woman of her age.

Winnie Cooper Gets Married

The actress who played Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years is all grown up and officially off the market. Danica McKellar, who played Winnie, married her long time boyfriend, composer Mike Verta, over the weekend. Danica’s maid of honor was Crystal McKellar, who played Becky Slater on the show. Fred Savage’s TV parents were also in attendance. The news of her nuptials is sure to send every twentysomething male fan of the show into a deep depression. [Buzzfeed]

Metallica Won't "Sell Out" To Live Nation

Insisting the group will never "sell out," Lars Ulrich has squashed any plans for Metallica to sign a deal with concert promoters Live Nation. Lars recently stated that the band has no plans of handing over control of his their image to Live Nation, insisting the company is not offering anything they need. He said, "We haven't sold out to Live Nation, and we are certainly not planning on it.” Live Nation acts as a record label for artists on its roster, including Madonna, Jay-Z, and U2, and deal with the promotion of concerts, merchandising, and sponsorship.

Seth Rogen Talks Green Hornet

Now that The Green Hornet finally has a director in Michel Gondry, Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg have wasted no time in suggesting things he could to to spruce the movie up. Rogen said that, “Me and Evan [Goldberg] have actually approached him with ideas like maybe we could do something like this…you could do some of your weird people made out of string and shit like that. He’s like, ‘No, I don’t want to any of that. The fact that you think I want to do that drives me crazy and makes me never want to do anything like that again.’” Guess Rogen should stick to doing what he does best. [/Film]

10 Awesome Time-lapse Videos

Time-lapse photography allows us to travel through time extra fast – maybe like the tree people in Lord of the Rings do.  You can see the Earth rise over the horizon of the moon in just eight minutes of human time.  You can watch an entire thunderstorm swarm over a rural area in just 15 seconds.  Or, you can go to Wired and just watch all 10 of their rad time-lapse videos.

Next Generation Gaming Console in Brazil

Zeebo is the name of a “next generation” console that is debuting in Brazil.  It’s next generation, though, only in so far as it’s in Brazil where none of the big names like Sony or Nintendo have a huge market share.  It will download games wirelessly over a 3G network and already has several publishers committed to making titles for it.  To use their words, they’re bringing gaming to the “next billion” that didn’t get the memo about the PS3 or the 360.

World's Cheapest New Car Headed to the U.S.?

Could an extremely inexpensive, minuscule little car like the Tata Nano actually sell in America, a land historically enamored with powerful V8 engines surrounded by as much sheet metal as possible? If the hot-selling BMW-built Mini Cooper is any indication, signs point toward "yes." And with at a price tag hovering around $2,000 U.S. and mileage efficiency at 50 MPG, it sure beats a scooter. Either way, Tata Motors is going to find out how into "green" U.S. consumers really are, as the Indian automaker is said to be looking at an introduction into the U.S. market by 2011 or 2012.
