Coed’s Groin Assault

Chalie Simon, a University of Colorado student, is in trouble with the law after assaulting an ex-boyfriend’s testicles. Over the weekend police were called to Job Donkor’s campus apartment after a domestic dispute was reported.

Donkor told police, “Yeah, it hurt a lot!" Chalie was arrested on assault, trespass, and domestic violence charges. [The Smoking Gun]

Pimps Heading to Internet

Online prostitution – especially among underage girls – is becoming an increasingly serious threat, says   Using online pimp Marvin Epps as the hub of their story, they explain how easy it is to recruit and then sell troubled youths using today’s technology.  Pimps use social networking sites (MySpace, in this case) to search for troubled youths, and then message them suggesting a life of dubious means. Marvin Epps (being held without bail on federal child pornography charges) had this to say about his online endeavors, “I don’t put girls on the blade.  It’s Y2K pimpin’.” [Wired]

MGMT are suing French President Nicolas Sarkozy and accusing him of using their hit “Kids” on online videos without permission. Sarkozy has admitted using the song at the UMP party's national congress, but claims the lack of permission was a mistake and offered the band one euro as a gesture. The duo rejected the offer and are now seeking compensation. Their lawyer, Isabelle Wekstein, said, "This offer is disrespectful of the rights of artists and authors. It is insulting. We are dealing with acts of counterfeiting, an infringement of intellectual property." [Pitchfork]

K-Fed Wants to Clothe Kids

With his rap career on "hiatus," K-Fed has been scanning trade shows in Las Vegas to help inspire his latest venture as a children's clothing designer. "I'm trying to make a quality product for kids but not have parents pay like $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans." Federline wants to show the world he's serious about his latest project and is in talks with Gerard Guez about a licensing deal. "It's a really tough business. I'm trying to take it seriously," he said. []

Remake of The NeverEnding Story

So many movies to remake, so little time. The NeverEnding Story is going to attempt to fulfill its eponymous prophecy, with a little help from Warner Brothers and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company. Who, exactly, WB thinks the audience for this film will be is not entirely clear, considering the fact that many of the kids who enjoyed the first version of the film probably have kids of their own. Then again, maybe the tone and style of the film – based on a German novel by Michael Ende – will change dramatically and the flying dog-dragon will start biting people. Hard to say. But one things for sure: if you’ve got a trove of beloved childhood movies from the ‘80s piled up somewhere, gather ‘em up and hide ‘em, ‘cause the studios are the hunt to remake everything that was ever seen fit to be made.

Tata Nano, World's Cheapest Car, to Debut in March

After a myriad of outside issues which caused multiple delays, Tata Motors has finally announced that production of their Nano city car will begin on March 23rd at the alternate facility in Gurajat. Sales will officially begin the first week in April as dealerships receive their first allotments of what is sure to become an instantly popular vehicle. Much of the hype surrounding the Nano is related to its targeted low price, which at 100,000 rupees (just under $2,000 in U.S. dollars at current exchange rates) would make Tata's Nano the cheapest automobile in the world. Hope you're not in a hurry though - the Nano comes with a 33-horsepower, 623cc two-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels. That puppy is begging for a turbo. [The Economic Times]
