Jenna Jameson Drops Twins

Jenna Jameson and her half-ape man-lover Tito Ortiz welcomed two babies – twins – into the world this morning at Newport Beach Hospital. Sadly, this probably means that Jenna Jameson will go back to her skeletal and terror-inducing look.  But, finally, we are going to get to see the punch line to what sounds like a horrible, horrible joke.  So a porn star and a mixed martial arts fighter walk into each other’s genitals...

The Hottest Venezuelans of All Time

We’ve never been to South America (or, at least, we can’t legally admit we have), but we imagine it to just be one gigantic boot camp for breeding and training super hot ladies.  It’s like in The Hulk when Edward Norton works in a horrible soda bottling plant and the woman who works next to him looks like she’d be better employed as an innocent but curious Latin maid at the office.  Anyway, here’s Uncoached’s list of the 15 hottest Venezuelans of all time.

The 10 Weirdest Infomercials of All Time

Manofest has compiled a disturbing collection of the oddest infomercials of all time.  These resonate with the 10-year-old versions of us when we used to stay up watching MTV the only time they were playing videos consistently – the middle of the night.  Then, every once in a while, we’d be treated to some brand of outstanding creepiness like “Dr. Ho’s Neck Massager.” [Manofest]

Transformers 3 is Already a Reality

Even before Transformers 2 hits theaters, Paramount has announced the release date for Transformers 3: July 1st, 2011. So it’s looking extremely likely that we’re going to get more Transformers after this summer. There’s not been any news on whether or not Michael Bay will still be attached to the third film, though, assuming he doesn’t completely drop the ball on part two, it’s very probable that he’ll be back. The spring/summer of 2011 will also see Spider-Man 4 and Thor, so moviegoers have a lot to look forward to. In two years. []

Big OLED TVs Won’t Come Until 2011

OLED technology is going to blow plasmas and LCD technology out of the digital water, but not until 2011.  Right now, you can buy an OLED television, but only in tiny, ridiculously small models that might be good in your kitchen.  But these are certainly nothing you’d want to watch movies or play games on. There have been no larger models produced because of the recession, and experts at DisplaySearch say large screens won’t come until 2011. [Gizmodo]

P. Diddy is Twitterpated with Twitter

The Smoking Section has an interesting article about hip hop stars embracing facets of the web to promote themselves and endear themselves to fans.  Specifically, it compares Kanye’s blog (about furniture and fashion, and hence irrelevant) to P. Diddy’s Twitter page (now protected from the public so also irrelevant).  Points for the effort, though, kids. [The Smoking Section]

Heath Ledger's Music Videos to be Released

Two music videos directed by the late Heath Ledger will be released this year. Modest Mouse plans to release the animated video for "King Rat," a bonus track from the band's 2007 LP We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank. A video piece for Grace Woodroofe's cover of David Bowie's "Quicksand" is also set to be released this year. Heath directed "King Rat" for Modest Mouse after meeting singer Isaac Brock in Australia.  "Heath and I have a mutual friend and when we were in Australia, my fiancé and some of us in the band went out on a boat with him and his family and friends and talked about the idea," Brock told VH1 in 2007 interview.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Posts Official ‘Ring Times

A pre-production Camaro SS hit the famed Nürburgring in Germany this weekend, lapping the gauntlet in a reported 8 minutes and 19 seconds. Despite lagging noticeably behind the Corvette ZR1’s 7:26 ‘ring time, the 2010 Camaro SS still finished a whole three seconds faster than the Cobalt SS and 11 seconds ahead of the Pontiac G8 GXP – which is really more of a testament to how fast the $20k, front-wheel-drive Cobalt is rather than anything else. While this isn’t the first time the Camaro SS has been spotted at the Nürburgring, it is the closest we’ve gotten to seeing the consumer-ready coupe flex its specs. [Leftlane]
