Thanks to Janet Jackson's infamous boob-baring wardrobe malfunction by Justin Timberlake in 2004, all female vocal artists seemed unofficially banned on the show. Since then only male artists such as Rolling Stones, U2, Paul McCartney, Prince and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, performed at the show during the past several years.

Capturing Old New York

Offering another look at the vanishing, old, rustic look of New York City, Dave Itzoff writes about the popularity of filming in New York City because of film tax credits, incentives and the variety of locations. Later on in the article, he talks about location scouts that look around the city for amazing location possibilities. He ends the article with this:

While they juggle the needs of their shows with the demands of residents, many producers say they are also scrambling to capture the rustic and unglamorous portions of the city, which are gradually being trampled beneath the march of gentrification.

The old New York Shipyard in Red Hook, once a go-to spot for shows that needed a hardscrabble, industrial edge, recently became the home of an Ikea furniture store.

“Often,” said Mr. Ross of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “I’ll send a scout out to someplace and I’ll say, ‘It’s a really great old warehouse. My guy will go out there and they’re like, ‘Nothing’s there any more. It’s gone.’ ”

Janet Jackson who is now being monitored will reschedule the show to a later date. Wish Jackson a soon recovery!

Protecting the Palestinians

In this Reuters article about Israeli settler violence against the Palestinians, Nahla Makhlouf, a Palestinian residing in the West Bank, was given a video camera by the Israeli Rights Group B'Tselem to record vigilante settler violence. During an encounter, the camera lens broke, but the audio kept recording.

Yoav Gross of B'Tselem said the settlers can be heard giving the army a one-minute ultimatum to act against the Palestinians or they would do the job themselves.

"They started counting one, two, three...," he said. "They were giving orders to the soldiers, not the other way around."

One Israeli human rights lawyer, Michael Sfard, says most soldiers do not realize they have not only the right but also the duty, as the occupying power, to defend Palestinians.

It's sad that the IDF doesn't realize what they're supposed to do as soldiers.

Eid & Rosh Hashanah

Photo by Rina Castelnuovo from the New York Times.

The Islamic Eid and Jewish Rosh Hashanah both fall within the same week this year: Rosh Hashanah is tonight and I believe Eid is either Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the moon. Ethan Bronner takes a look at the overlapping religious holidays and how it comes into play in Jerusalem this year. There is something lacking within the article itself. Bronner is, in my opinion, focusing too much on the Jewish side of it, with only one quote from a Palestinian Muslim. However, the feature photo is amazing.

Anne Hathaway Sex Life Interview in Esquire Magazine?

Anne Hathaway Sex Life Interview in Esquire Magazine? Some gossip blogs are buzzing that actress Anne Hathaway had talked about her sex life with Esquire magazine.

Get smart actress Anne Hathaway picture

Get smart actress Anne Hathaway picture
Anne Hathaway
Yikes! The 25-year-old The Devil Wears Prada star reportedly confessed in an upcoming interview with the mag she had some a sensual sex life-- a$$ intercourse. Miss M. from Esquire told Celebdump

Anne Hathaway

...the sexy "Get Smart" star states that one of the most sensual experiences in her life was anal intercourse with her boyfriend. She says "every woman should try it, otherwise they miss out on something amazing". She also speaks about significance of the first time and the trustworthy partner and how the anal penetration makes her feel feminine in a very special way. ...

Ouch, when seeing Anne Hathaway biting former boyfriend Raffaello Follieri's nipple, we already believed Anne Hathaway was a little cheeky, but apparently she would have been much more cheeky than what we originally thought if Celebdump's claim was true.

Update: Anne Hathaway anal sex interview on Esquire magazine is false, from Celebitchy:

There’s a rumor going around that actress Anne Hathaway frankly discusses anal sex in an upcoming interview with Esquire Magazine. The quote, which is completely fabricated, is so amusing that there’s no way it can be true. [...]

I knew this uh, smelled false but it’s a story we couldn’t pass up, so I contacted the editors at Esquire through their online form. They let me know that this isn’t true and it sounds like they don’t even have an interview with Hathaway coming up. They said through e-mail: “That interview does not appear in an upcoming issue of Esquire magazine.”

So we have our answer.

10 Kota Mati paling mengerikan di Dunia

apa kabarr???
wie geht's ? ups, lama tidak mengucapkan kalimat terakhir ituh. fufufuf... tadinya post kali ini aku mau ngebahas tentang Tugas akhirku, tapi...ada sesuatu yang menurutku lebih menarik.

baru saja aku ngebuka e-mail di salah satu forum milis yang aku ikutin. dari judulnya dah menarik "10 kota Mati...". kenapa menarik? well, aku mungkin kurang begitu tau yah tentang yang namanya urban design. well, one thing i know for sure, urban design tu selalu berusaha menciptakan sebuah tata kota yang nyaman ditinggali buat calon penggunanya. kalo dah ada yang bilang 'KOTA MATI', pasti para Urban designer langsung bergidik dan buru-buru berkata, " itu pasti bukan sayah yang ngerancang..." kekekeke. (sotoy bener ni anak! ~.~)

oke, so let's get started.

1. KOLMANSKOP ( Namibia ) : Dikubur dalam Pasir

Kolmanskop adalah sebuah kota mati di selatan Namibia , beberapa kilometer dari pelabuhan Luderitz. Di tahun 1908 Luderitz mengalami demam berlian, dan orang-orang kemudian menuju ke padang pasir Namib untuk mendapatkan kekayaan dengan mudah. Dalam dua tahun terciptalah sebuah kota yang megah lengkap dengan segala prasarananya seperti kasino, sekolah, rumah sakit, juga dengan bangunan tempat tinggal yang eksklusif yang berdiri di lahan yang dulunya tandus dan merupakan padang pasir.

Tetapi setelah perang dunia pertama, jual beli berlian menjadi terhenti, ini merupakan permulaan berakhirnya semuanya. Sepanjang tahun 1950 kota mulai ditinggalkan, pasir mulai meminta kembali apa yang menjadi miliknya. Papan metal yang kokoh roboh, kebun yang cantik dan jalanan yang rapi dikubur dibawah pasir, jendela dan pintu bergeretak pada setiap engselnya, kaca-kaca jendela terpecah membelalak seperti menunjukan kehancuran pada hamparan pasir yang menjulang.

Sebuah kota mati baru telah dilahirkan, sampai saat ini masih nampak sepasang banguna yang berdiri, juga terdapat bangunan seperti sebuah teater masih dalam kondisi yang sangat baik, dan sisanya, rumah-rumah tersebut hancur digerus pasir dan menjadi deretan rumah-rumah hantu yang menakutkan.

2. PRYPIAT ( Ukraine ): Rumah para pekerja Chernobyl

Prypiat adalah sebuah kota besar di daerah terasing di Ukraina Utara, merupakan daerah perumahan para pekerja kawasan nuklir Chernobyl . Kawasan ini mati sejak terjadinya bencana nuklir Chernobyl yang menelan hamper 50.000 jiwa. Setelah kejadian, lokasi ini praktis seperti sebuah museum, menjadi bagian dari sejarah Soviet. Bangunan apartement (empat merupakan bangunan yang belum sempat ditempati), kolam renang, rumah sakit, dan banyak bangunan yang lain hancur. Dan semua isi yang terdapat dalam bangunan tersebut dibiarkan ada di dalamnya, seperti arsip, TV, mainan anak-anak, meubel, barang berharga, pakaian dan lain-lain semua seperti kebanyakan milik keluarga-keluarga pada umumnya.

Penduduk hanya boleh mengambil dokumen penting, buku dan pakaian yang tidak terkontaminasi oleh nuklir. Namun sejak abad 21, tidak lagi ada barang berharga yang tertinggal, bahkan tempat duduk dikamar kecilpun dibawa oleh para penjarah, banyak dari bangunan yang isinya dirampok dari tahun ke tahun. Bangunan yang tidak lagi terawat, dengan atap yang bocor, dan bagian dalam bangunan yang tergenang air di musim hujan, semakin membuat kota tersebut benar-benar menjadi kota mati. Kita bisa melihat pohon yang tumbuh di atap rumah, pohon yang tumbuh di dalam rumah.

3. SAN ZHI ( Taiwan ): Tempat peristirahatan yang futuristik

Disebelah Utara Taiwan , terdapat sebuah kampong yang futuristic, pada awalnya dibangun sebagai sebuah tempat peristirahatan yang mewah bagi kaum kaya. Bagaimanapun, setelah terjadi banyak kecelakaan yang fatal pada masa pembangunannya akhirnya proyek tersebut dihentikan. Setelah mengalami kesulitan dana dan kesulitan para pekerja yang mau mengerjakan proyek tersebut akhirnya pembangunan resort tersebut benar-benar dihentikan ditengah jalan. Desas-desus kemudian bermunculan, banyak yang bilang kawasan kampung tersebut menjadi tempat tinggal para hantu, dari mereka yang sudah meninggal.

4. CRACO ( Italy ): Kota pertengahan yang mempesona

Craco terletak didaerah Basilicata dan provinsi Matera sekitar 25 mil dari teluk Taranto . Kota pertengahan ini mempunyai area yang khas dengan dipenuhi bukit yang berombak-ombak dan hamparan pertanian gandum serta tanaman pertanian lainnya. Ditahun 1060 ketika kepemilikan lahan Craco dimiliki oleh uskup Arnaldo pimpinan keuskupan Tricarico. Hubungan yang berjalan lama dengan gereja membawa pengaruh yang banyak kepada seluruh penduduk. Di tahun 1891 populasi penduduk Craco lebih dari 2000 orang, waktu itu mereka banyak dilanda permasalahan social dan kemiskinan yang banyak membuat mereka putus asa, antara tahun 1892 dan 1922 sekitar 1300 orang pindah ke Amerika Utara. Kondisi pertanian yang buruk ditambah dengan bencana alam gempa bumi, tanah longsor serta peperangan inilah yang menyebabkan mereka bermigrasi massal.

Antara tahun 1959 dan 1972 Craco kembali diguncang gempa dan tanah longsor. Di tahun 1963 sisa penduduk sekitar 1300 orang akhirnya dipindahkan ke suatu lembah dekat Craco Peschiera, dan sampai sekarang Craco yang asli masih tertinggal dalam keadaan hancur dan menyisakan kebusukan sisa-sisa peninggalan penduduknya.

5. ORADOUR-SUR- GLANE ( France ): the horror of WWII

Perkampungan kecil Oradour Sul Glane di Perancis menunjukan sebuah kondisi keadaan yang sangat mengerikan. Selama perang dunia ke II, 642 penduduk dibantai oleh tentara Jerman sebagai bentuk pembalasan atas terhadap perlakuan Perancis waktu itu. Jerman yang waktu itu sebenarnya berniat menyerang daerah di dekat Oradour Sul Glane tapi akhirnya mereka menyerang perkampungan kecil tersebut pada tanggal 10 Juni 1944. menurut kesaksian orang-orang yang selamat, penduduk laki-laki dimasukan kedalam sebuah gudang dan tentara jerman menembaki kaki mereka sehingga akhirnya mereka mati secara pelan-pelan. Wanita dan anak-anak yang dimasukan ke dalam gereja, akhirnya semua mati tertembak ketika mereka berusaha keluar dari dalam gereja. Kampung tersebut benar-benar dihancurkan tentara Jerman waktu itu. Dan sampai saat ini reruntuhan kampung tersebut masih berdiri dan menjadi saksi betapa kejamnya peristiwa yang terjadi saat itu.

6. GUNKANJIMA ( Japan ): the forbidden island

Pulau ini adalah salah satu dari 505 pulau tak berpenghuni di Nagasaki Daerah Administratsi Jepang, sekitar 15 kilometer dari Nagasaki . Pulau ini juga dikenal sebagai "Gunkan Jima" atau pulau kapal perang. Pada tahun 1890 ketika suatu perusahaan (Mitsubishi) membeli pulau tersebut dan memulai proyek untuk mendapatkan batubara dari dasar laut di sekitar pulau tersebut. Di tahun 1916 mereka membangun beton besar yang pertama di pulau tersebut, sebuah blok apartemen dibangun untuk para pekerja dan juga berfungsi untuk melindungi mereka dari angin topan.

Pada tahun 1959, populasi penduduk pulau tersebut membengkak, kepadatan penduduk waktu itu mencapai 835 orang per hektar untuk keseluruhan pulau (1.391 per hektar untuk daerah pusat pemukiman), sebuah populasi penduduk terpadat yang pernah terjadi di seluruh dunia.

Ketika minyak tanah menggantikan batubara tahun 1960, tambang batu bara mulai ditutup, tidak terkecuali di Gunkan Jima, di tahun 1974 Mitsubishi secara resmi mengumumkan penutupan tambang tersebut, dan akhirnya mengosongkan pulau tersebut. Pada tahun 2003 pulau ini dimbil sebagai setting film "Battle Royale"� dan mengilhami sebuah game popular "Killer"

7. KADYKCHAN ( Russia ): memories of the Soviet Union

Kadykchan merupakan salah satu kota kecil di Rusia yang hancur saat runtuhnya Uni Soviet. Penduduk terpaksa berjuang untuk mendapatkan akses untuk memperoleh air, pelayanan kesehatan dan juga sekolah. Mereka harus keluar dari kota itu dalam jangka waktu 2 minggu, untuk menempati kota lain dan menempati rumah baru. Kota dengan penduduk sekitar 12.000 orang yang rata-rata sebagai penambang timah ini dikosongkan. Mereka meninggalkan rumah mereka dengan segala perabotannya. Jadi anda dapat menemukan mainan, buku, pakaian dan berbagai barang didalam kota yang kosong.

8. KOWLOON WALLED CITY ( China ): A lawless city

Kota besar Kowloon yang terletak di luar Hongkong , China Dulunya diduduki oleh Jepang selama perang dunia II, yang kemudian diambil alih oleh penduduk liar setelah Jepang menyerah. Pemerintahan Inggris ingin China bertanggung jawab terhadap kota ini, karena kota tersebut menjadi kota yang tidak beraturan dan tidak taat pada hukum pemerintah. Populasi tidak terkendali, penduduk membangun koridor lybirint yang setinggi jalan yang penuh tersumbat oleh sampah, bangunan yang sangat tinggi sehingga membuat cahaya matahari tidak bisa menyinari. Seluruh kota disinari dengan neon.

Kota tersebut penuh dengan rumah pelacuran, kasino, rumah madat dan obat bius dan kokain, banyak terdapat makanan-makanan dari daging anjing dan juga terdapat pabrik-pabrik rahasia yang tidak terganggu oleh otoritas.Keadaan ini akhirnya berakhir ketika di tahun 1993, diambil keputusan oleh pemerintah Inggris dan otoritas China untuk menghentikan semua itu.

9. FAMAGUSTA ( Cyprus ): once a top tourist destination, now a ghost town

Varosha adalah sebuah daerah yang tidak diakui oleh republic Cyprus Utara. Sebelum tahun 1974 Turki menginvasi Cyprus , daerah ini merupakan daerah wisata modern di kota Famagusta . Pada tiga dekade terakhir, kota ini ditinggalkan dan menjadi kota mati. Di tahun 1970-an, kota ini menjadi kota tujuan wisata utama di Cyprus . Untuk memberikan pelayanan yang memuaskan kepada para wisatawan, kota ini membangun berbagai bangunan mewah dan hotel.

Ketika tentara Turki menguasai daerah tersebut, mereka menjaga dan memagari daerah tersebut, tidak boleh ada yang keluar masuk kota tersebut tanpa seijin dari tentara Turki dan tentara PBB. Rencana untuk kembali mengembalikan Varosha ke tangan kendali Yunani, namun rencana tersebut tidak pernah terwujud. Hampir selama 34 tahun kota tersebut dibiarkan dan tidak ada perbaikan. Perlahan bangunan-bangunan tersebut hancur, metal mulai berkarat, jedela pecah, dan akar-akar tumbuhan menembus dinding dan trotoar. Kura-kura bersarang di pantai yang ditinggalkan. Di tahun 2010 Pemerintahan Turki bermaksud untuk membuka kembali Varosha untuk para turis dan kota kembali bisa didiami dan akan menjadi salah satu kota yang paling berpengaruh di uatara pulau.

10. AGDAM ( Azerbaijan ): once a 150,000 city of people, now lost

Kota besar Agdam di Azerbaijan adalah salah satu kota besar yang populasi penduduknya mencapai 150.000 orang. Namun kemudian hilang setelah pada tahun 1993 sepanjang perang Nagorno Karabakh. Walaupun kota ini tidak secara langsung menjadi basis peperangan, namun kota ini tetap mendapatkan efek dari perang tersebut, dengan menjadi korban dari sikap para Armenians yang merusak kota tersebut. Bangunan-bangunan dirusak dan akhirnya ditinggalkan penghuninya, hanya menyisakan masjid-masjid yang masih utuh berdiri. Penduduk Agdam sendiri sudah berpindah ke area lain, seperti ke Iran .

Madonna's Towels Confiscated at Montenegro Customs

Though those 300 towels are for both for Madonna and tour dancers to use when coming off stage, apparently Montenegro customs officials did not think so and confiscated them simply based on the suspicion why the 4 Minutes singer needs so many, the report said.

"The customs people had never come across that kind of volume of towels for personal use before, or the cost given for them." A source was quoted by the Sun.
