The easy listening sensation cleverly put some of Kanye West’s tweets to music on Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel. The rap star has prompted a great deal of head scratching over such random 140 character musings as “Do you know where to find marble conference tables?” and “Man…whatever happened to my antique fish tank?”
Coming soon to an elevator near you.
We’ve gone a little bit crazy for Brazilian girls here at the Mansion. Yesterday we had Ana Beatriz Barros, and today we have another bombshell from Brazil, Lisalla Montenegro.
You enjoyed that video didn’t you. If you are anything like me, you are already nursing a semi, and you aren’t out of the woods yet. Heaps more photos are after the jump. Proceed with caution.
If there’s one wave that could possibly mirror the shape of Teahupoo, it would be Shipstern Bluff, located off the south end of the island of Tasmania. Access to “Shippies” is via a two-hour hike around Tasman National Park, or a long and bumpy boat ride from the nearby harbor.
The bottom at Shipstern is a slab of granite that takes the brunt of huge swells traveling from deep water and expounding all their force onto this ledge. It also breaks right in front of a boulder-piled headland, adding even more risk to the already impossible drop. Add in the fact that you’ll need to be wearing a 4/3 wetsuit and booties almost year round here, and one can easily see why it’s only ridden by the most demented of chargers.

Filmmaker Andrew Wonder and Steve Duncan explored deep under the city of New York last year. On their journey they captured the entire experience through the sewers, subway tunnels, and just about every other sketchy aspect of the underground.
They finish their adventure by climbing to the top of Williamsburg Bridge, high above the street for an epic view of Manhattan. This mischief looks like fun!
Thanks to their close connection to with pro skateboarder Chris Cole the Cult crew was able to hook up a session at The Berrics. They were the first BMX riders to get to session the famous skate spot, so it was a pretty big deal. Dakota Roche, Chase Dehart, Robbie Morales, Russ Barone, Cody Levesque, and even some Chris Cole BMX footy…
Her name says it all. Its been far too long since I’ve looked at saucy Megan Fox photos. Last time was, umm, last night. See what I mean? Way too long. Here are some recent pics of Megan posing, while raising the climate and melting the ice caps at the same time with the radiating heat from her cleavage. The Polar Bears are not pleased, but I sure am.

Bonus video after the jump…first ever kick flip on a surfboard? You decide!
About 1,000 black birds fell from the sky over Beebe, Arkansas on new years eve. Around 11:30pm, the commission began receiving phone calls about the birds, most of which were dead and fell over a 1-mile span. Commission ornithologist Karen Rowe said the flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail, or the birds could have died from stress if disturbed from their roost by fireworks celebrating the New Year.
At times like this, all I can do is be glad I have 2000 cans of baked beans stashed under my house, ready for Armageddon. In the military, Parakeets are used as early warning system to detect chemical attacks. If this isn’t a sign that there is a huge change happening in the world, then I’m going to be hustling baked beans for $2 a can.
A female police officer has been shot dead and another wounded after a dramatic trailer park gun battle in Ohio.
Mother-of-two Suzanne Waughtel Hopper, 40, had driven to the trailer park after reports came in of shots being fired in the Enon Beach area late Saturday morning.
As she examined the area and took photos, the door of a nearby silver trailer opened and a man fired a single shot from a shotgun. Deputy Hopper was killed instantly by the blast.
The officer who had accompanied there desperately tried to reach her body as a gun battle then ensued at the trailer park just southwest of Springfield and about 50 miles west of Columbus.
Sergeant Dustin White had been interviewing a family whose trailer had been shot at when he heard his partner scream.
Enon Beach resident Angelina Inman said: ‘He was itching to get her. He kept radioing in, can he please get her, and he was told no because it wasn’t secure. You could see him crying – he wanted to get her, he wanted to get her bad.’
The as-yet unidentified man fired again on police who responded to the ‘officer down’ call, sparking a furious gun battle as officers returned fire with handguns and automatic weapons. It was during this firefight that Patrolman Jeremy Blum, 32, was also wounded.
In graphic video footage of the shootout, Patrolman Blum can be seen screaming in pain, throwing his weapon in front of him and crawling away from his advanced position at the scene.
Officer Hopper’s body, lying in front of the trailer on her back, has been blurred in the footage.
