Fun stuff

JJ Abrams was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and revealed a few things about the new Star Wars movie, along with a new scene.

If you’re at work, you might want to put your headphones on for this one.

An eagle-eyed Homeland observer sent this in via the tipline:

In this scene from a recent episode, there is an Apple laptop on the desk.

Cooking shows have become a real staple for TV networks the world over and while there seems to be a million different shows featuring Gordon Ramsay, much of the food, as beautiful as it looks, seems really complicated and too difficult for many of us kitchen novices.

Thankfully there are folk like DJ BBQ who can help you be a master chef in your own kitchen.  Check out this entertaining pulled pork recipe that I’m going to try this week:

When it comes to card games, 500 is what I usually play.  I have a number of friends who love playing poker but I’ve never really managed to wrap my head around which groupings of cards beat others.  I’ve seen a few poker competitions on TV in the later hours of the night but I’ve never really sat down to watch a competition properly.

I’ve always known poker was a high risk game with loads of bluffing and being able to read your opponent.  It kind of reminds me of Chess, except for the chips and transfer of cash around a table until one person walks away with it all.  I’m sure it might be fun with a few friends, cigars and pennies but the stakes that drive the professionals are the zeroes that roll off the end of the initial number.

This is certainly the case for the players at Party Poker TV. Rather than staying up late to watch a poker competition on television, they have episodes on demand of their Premier League which is fascinating watching.  Rather than standing around a table at a casino and being unable to see what cards each player holds, there are cameras under the glass table so viewers can see exactly what cards each player has as well as the odds of winning as the cards are placed on the felt.

Watching these guys gamble is definitely entertaining but personally I’d be a little terrified of parting with my hard earned cash. For anyone wanting to dabble in a little online poker though, you can pick up a bonus code to get your chip balance looking a little healthier before you take to the table.

Who knows, perhaps one day you might be starring in an online TV series as you make your way to the top of the rankings and walk away with a title and a bunch of chips to cash in.

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has of course proven that he’s a fan of the older women, having dated Caroline Flack and Lucy Horobin – both of whom are in their thirties – however, his latest I So Would candidate is maths whiz, Carol Vorderman!

At 51, Carol is 33 years older than Harry, but that hasn’t put him off – though she might feel differently – and a friend of his recently told the Sun, “Harry absolutely fancies the pants off of Carol, and has for years.

“He has always said that he would love to take her on a date but that he wouldn’t have the guts to actually ask her out in case she turned him down.

“But Carol is definitely the ultimate cougar for Harry.”

Well, to be fair to him, when you see these pics of Carol, y’really can’t blame him… Continue reading »

Aussie girl band The Veronicas have told The Fix that they would “do” any of the 1D boys, but most especially Harry Styles.

Jessica – who with partner Lisa Origliasso make up The Veronicas – “[I’d pash] Harry, because he likes older women. I think that Harry boy’s adorable.

“It’s those big green eyes.”

Lisa added, “He’s beautiful, I think they’re all beautiful, from what I’ve seen of them…” Continue reading »
