Rosario Dawson’s Sexy Photo Shoot

Rosario Dawson is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She is the type of girl you want to take home and meet your mother. But you might reconsider having her meet the parents after seeing her recent photo shoot for Complex magazine. In the photos Rosario sheds her nice girl image and vamps it up as leather-clad dominatrix, a naughty school girl, and a horny devil. This girl is perfect. [Complex]

Woman Uses Craigslist for Ex Revenge

A 20-year-old Wisconsin woman is facing felony charges for posing as her ex-boyfriend and posting a Craigslist personal ad seeking other men to call him at work and "talk dirty to him." Kari Heath posted the ad after an argument with her then-boyfriend Joseph Strasburg. The personal ad posted on Craigslist’s “Casual Encounters” section included explicit photos and Strasburg’s work telephone number. Strasburg contacted police after receiving several phone calls. Kari was arrested and charged with identity theft. [The Smoking Gun]

Video Games Could Become Best for Storytelling

The maker of Star Ocean, Yoshinori Yamagishi, has revealed in an interview that he thinks the limitations of games will never surpass film, books, or television as a medium for storytelling.  However, he does say that if game developers can get over a few hurdles (the unpredictability of how a gamer controls a character, namely) then video games have the potential to become the best medium for storytelling because their interactivity draws viewers in more than competing mediums.

Tool Academy Season Finale

Tool Academy, if you don’t know, is a show on VH1 where they tricked a bunch of gigantic douchebags into thinking they were competing for the title of “Mr. Awesome” when, in reality, they were going into relationship therapy.  Each round, the tools and their girlfriends see a counselor and go through a series of reality show competitions trying to be less tool-y.  The season finale is coming up, and believe it or not, one of the dudes actually calls himself Matsuflex.  What a douche.

Megatron is Back

After trying to throw fanboys off by telling them that Megatron wasn’t going to return, Michael Bay has finally fessed up to the fact that Megatron is, in fact, returning in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. On his site he admits, “Okay cat is out of the bag. Megatron is back —- but you will only get to see him from the long lost past. We go way back in time as this movie explains the mythology of the Primes. He is not a tank like everyone suggests, but an alien vehicle. But sadly he does not have much screen time.” Right, well, I think about half of that is true. Megatron will be back, but what exactly is the point of bringing him back only to use him in flashbacks? That’s what my mamma called “stupid.” [The Movie Blog]

Montana Has No Tolerance for Slam Dunks

A warm-up dunk that shattered the backboard may end up costing a Montana basketball team a shot at the state championship. The Harlem High boys team was warming up for their Northern B divisional game with Shelby when one of the Harlem players attempted a dunk. In a sweet display of dunking prowess, the backboard was shattered to pieces. The problem is that an obscure rule in the state handbook states that any pre-game warm-up glass-shattering dunkage will result in that player's team forfeiting the game. Whoops.
