'X Factor' Contestant Drops His Pants

Ray Mickshaw / FOX

“Families were led to believe the X Factor would be family-friendly programming and instead were assaulted by graphic nudity," says the group's president of Geo Godley's performance.

The Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint after contestant Geo Godley dropped his pants while performing on Wednesday night's premiere of The X Factor. A giant "X" logo covered his crotch, while judge Paula Abdul stormed off the set.
As the PTC points out, the blurred nudity aired shortly after 9 p.m. ET, when indecent content is prohibited on broadcast television.

“X Factor judge L.A.. Reid described the performance of contestant Geo Godley as ‘offensive, disgusting, distasteful and upsetting.’  And based upon contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium, the PTC adds to Reid’s description the title ‘indecent,’” says PTC president Tim Winter in a statement.

“As the broadcast decency law comes before the United States Supreme Court in the coming term, Fox has offered a compelling demonstration as to why that law needs to be upheld.  If Godley performed his act in public, he would have been arrested. But if he performs it in front of a Fox camera, his act is beamed via the public airwaves into every home in the nation," he adds.

How To Enable Facebook Timeline

Yesterday, Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerburg has announced the new feature of Facebook, which includes archives and timeline that enables users to browse their past contents, photos and statuses. It is one of the site's breakthrough that allows its users to reminisce how great they were a few years back (sarcasm intended).

Fortunately, enabling Timeline a bit early isn’t too difficult — but it’s not at all straight forward, either.

As you all know, enabling Facebook's timeline feature at this point is open graph developers. You, too, can be an open graph developer — even if you’re just looking to dabble.

A few things before enabling this feature to your Facebook account:

  • Expect a LOT of bugs. It would be a pain in the ass and frustrating, unless if you're actually a developer.
  • It's only you who can view your timline (unless if you decide otherwise) but will be seen by the public a few days after.
  • It seems that if you login into Facebook on another machine, Timeline gets disabled automatically on all of your machines. With that said, it seems you can get back to your timeline (but ONLY after following the steps below) by navigating to
  • You’ll need to have a “verified” account for one of the steps, which means you need a credit card or phone number attached to the account.
Are you ready? Now let's tweak your Facebook!

The New Blue Screen of Death

Developers of Windows 8 has unveiled the new look of the Blue Screen of Death.

Most of the users are pretty much annoyed with the previous versions of the BSOD since it was not written in a simple language.

To quote one user of Windows 7, "I really hate seeing the Blue Screen of Death; it terrifies me a lot. Aside from the fact that my laptop's crashing, I can't seem to grasp the true meaning of its demise. For five seconds, I'd just stare at my laptop screen, trying to figure out what the hell's happening to my laptop and moments after, it will restart all by itself leaving the us, the users clueless."

Now, the developers of Windows 8 has released the new look of the BSOD.

Of Plastic Surgeries

There is no definite meaning of beauty; we define it.

But sometimes one looks forward to have a beautiful face that he or she desires - perfect nose, prominent jawlines and cheekbones and perfect smile.

Since the dawn of plastic surgery, a lot have already gained their self-confidence, thanks to their new facial features. But sometimes, too much of it could cause detrimental and irreversible effects.

Please watch this one minute video in order to understand what I'm trying to say.

Oh, no! Oprah Did Not Say That!

Hours after Shamcey Supsup was named as Miss Universe 2011's 3rd runner-up, an alleged message coming from the 'Queen of Talk' Oprah Winfrey spread like a wildfire on the internet, stating that Shamcey Supsup is more deserving to be crowned as Miss Universe 2011 and not Miss Angola, Leila Lopes.

This alleged statement was aired via NBC News:

“I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point.”

I'm sorry to burst your bubble but Oprah Winfrey didn't actually say that.

(via ABS-CBN)

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE) - Miss Angola's Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe for 2011 in the competition held in Sao Paulo, Brazil Monday night (Tuesday morning in Manila). Shamcey Supsup, a 25-year-old beauty from the Philippines, was the third runner-up for the pageant.

Miss Ukraine Olesya Stefanko was the first runner-up, Brazil's Priscila Machado placed 2nd runner-up, Supsup placed third and China's Luo Zilin was 4th runner-up.

Tony Award winner Lea Salonga asked Lopes the final question that would help her win the pageant.

She asked Lopes: "If you could change one of your personal characteristics, which one would it be and why?"

Lopes replied: "Thank God, I’m very well satisfied with the way God created me and I would not change a thing. I consider myself a woman with inner beauty. I have my principles. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I plan to follow this through the rest of my life."

Shamcey Supsup: Miss Universe 3rd Runner-up

Q: Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why or why not?

And her winning answer is:

If I have to change my religious belief, I will not marry the person that I love. Because the first person that I love is God who created me and I have my faith, my principles and this is what makes me who I am and if that person loves me, he should love my God too.

So, Albie's the Father

The long wait is finally over. 

Albie Casiño is the father of Andi Eigenmann's baby. Too bad he left the poor lady and even didn't have plans to do his responsibilities being the father of their baby... or so I thought.
