With the U.S. release date slated for March 5, 2010, the latest trailer for Alice in Wonderland, which will be showing in Disney Digital 3D and stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, & Anne Hathaway, has hit the online sphere. Also below:  stills from Tim Burton’s brilliantly twisted interpretation of the classic characters – can’t wait to see how the finished product turns out.

Um, yeah – Book your space, along with 300 other “astronauts” & be a part of the first commercial trips into space. According to Virgin Galactic (not to be confused with Battlestar Galactica), the

“SpaceShipTwo (SS2) and its mothership, VMS Eve (WhiteKnightTwo) herald a new era in commercial space flight with daily space tourism flights set to commence from Spaceport America in New Mexico.”   


Caprica, here we come.

Adios, cash or check only. Hello, mobile credit card payment.

Square, created by the founder of Twitter, has created this new program for on-the-go credit card payments (it supposedly functions with any device with an audiojack – obviously “smart” technology is needed). Basically, with the aid of a physical plug-in (to the audio jack) business owners (registered on the site) can swipe a customer’s credit card, charge a payment & email the receipt. In an effort to combat identity theft, the users will see the card holder’s face on the, for example, iPhone screen. Oh yeah, Square’ll donate a penny for every transaction to charity, too.

As the bluntly singing Lilly Allen laments:

“But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f—king fantastic.”

Looks like the Twitterati outdid one of – if not THE – world’s leading news agencies. Ashton Kutcher had a race on to beat down CNN by garnering a million Twitter followers before the media giant. Britney Spears – or at least her manager, Adam Leber – even tried to throw her hat in the ring, promising free Britney tickets for those who twittered about following Britney Spears. But with Ashton’s promises of a donation of 10,000 bednets (@ $10 each) to Malaria No More (they even feature Ashton’s Twitteriffic race on their home page) in support of Malaria Awareness Day (April 25th), which CNN countered with the same proposal. Too bad they didn’t have a delicious deal from EA Games on their side, promising the millionth Kutcher follower the entire set of 2009 EA Games – oh, and the fact that Kutcher promised he’d “Ding Dong Ditch” CNN founder Ted Turner’s house will filming in Atlanta next month. Kutcher quickly surpassed Spears’ number 2 position and flew neck and neck with CNN down until the final moments when Kutcher pulled ahead. Let’s just hope CNN decides to go through with their donation, even in light of their newsworthy loss.

Social media, bettering the world – one bednet (and/or video game) at a time.

To donate your own bednet for just $10, you can visit Malaria No More‘s website. Small price to pay to save a life.

Twitter user? Follow Ashton Kutcher, CNN, Britney Spears, or even yours truly.

Fail Whale.

Thank you, Twitter

 He even has a clothing line, score. Watch your back, Michael Kors.

that Madonna & Ed Hardy’s Christian Audiger will be making sweet sweet fashion amour, the result of which could be rather interesting.  Sticky & sweet skull tatoos, anyone?

Sorry zeros, ones, and twos, seems like the in-humanly-impossibly proprotioned Barbie has just upped and stole y’all’s modeling contracts – she’s become the new object of adoration for Karl Lagerfeld; the House of Chanel designer is set to dress Barbie for her 50th anniversary. Is it pathetic that I’m jealous of a doll? Not with clothes like these.  Seriously, the worst accessory she has is her arm candy, and I don’t mean the pseudo-rocker gloves.
