Lawrence Taylor Unable to Make All Those Moves

April 23, 2009

There is one happy chapter added in Lawrence Taylor’s biography with the punchline “Dancing with Edyta Sliwinska.” He may be good with his moves at the field, but that is not what judges felt when he was ousted from the competition on 21 April. As we the saying goes: “Wining and losing is not what matter, but the struggle and the fight.” Unfortunate for the footballer, he is now off the ball.

There is one small twist in the whole story, the philosophy of positivism that sometimes results in better results than otherwise. Taylor took it all well, “21 points that is what you give to Taylor. You know when I kick I kick real hard.” No it wasn’t like that. The footballer who spends most of his time playing golf was happy and cool. He was quite amazed at the efforts that professional dancers require to make those graceful moves.

It is a good lesson for football fans as well. Well, the sport may need to have the killer’s instinct above all, but dancing is more like revealing. It is about control, balance and harmony.

The 8th Season of “Dancing with the Stars” moves on, with the subtraction of Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska. With no extra times and penalty shoots, the scoreboard read: Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska: 21 points, the lowest amongst all. Top Performers on the day were Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani with judges awarding them 29 points, Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas with 28 points, Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke with 27 points, Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough with 27, Lil’ Kim and Derek Hough with 26, Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower with 24 points, Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska with 21.

It may not be a shock after all to Taylor’s fans, as they know that the dark horse was not going to make it big.

April 21, 2009

Mel Gibson has to do a lot of explaining after reports confirmed that he has been dating Oksana Grigorieva. There were rumours about his mystery date  prior to the filing of divorce by wife Robyn. There is buzz in the town that the duo, the American ally and the Russian beauty have been having a nice time at many places including the trip to Costa Rica. Dear Mel gels so well.

Now to Oksana Grigorieva. She is a Russian singer, an ex-girl of Mr. Bond, Timothy Dalton. Mr. Bond and the Russian lady, reprtedly, have a son named Alexander. Oksana also has contract with Icon Records. Not only this, she is now putting in the house that used to belong to Mr. Gibson. The property in the California, is owned by a trust that is administered by Mel Gibson’s production company.Too many links.

I tried to do a BGround check on the lady in the suit…persuit. But it runs out that she has been keeping a low profile and not revealed much. Well, the braveheart must have found something, more than just name, to actually think of leaving Robyn. Oksana is 39 and all the more sexy; no offense but she looks terrific. She sings and has acted as well. She belongs to a family where music and singing is an essential way of life and as people describe it, she is not gonna leave that.

Mel Gibson and Robyn Denise Moore got married in 1980. They have seven children and also a grand child. Mel Gibson once said that: “Life is about love and commitment.” But who can deny the supreme influence of time and sex. They do make many a men weak, many a promises obsolete and many a committments things of the past.

April 21, 2009

Boston Celtics are on a cruise mission with topgun Ray Allen making all the difference. On Monday, the battle was fierce with firepower Ben Gordon, supporting the midriff of Chicago Bulls. On the night Allen scored a 3-pointer, with only two seconds left for the game to finish. That was close, awesome. Allen, however, scored 28 of his 30 points in the second half only.

The game was played at TD Banknorth Garden, in which the defending champions defeated Chicago Bulls by 118-115 win. Fans blew trumpets as Ben Gordon’s team  plumetted to defeat.

Ben Gordon played extremely well, winning 42 points for the team, but couldn’t save the Bulls on the night.   The scores are now 1-1 with a tie-up and that gives Boston Celtics a wonderful opportunity of playing on their own turf.   Glen Davis, who substituted Kevin Garnet scored 26 points. Celtics scores were further apprized by Rajon Rondo who brought home 19 points.

In San Antionio, Dallas Mavericks had a real bad time with The Spurs defeating the former by 105-84 winning performance.  Tony Parker was great with the assists and scored 38 points.


Fast & Furious 4 | Movie Review

April 20, 2009

Fast & Furious 4 is a sequel to 2 Fast 2 Furious. It connects the movies 2 Fast 2 Furious and Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift. The film, directed by Justin Lee, was released in the first week of April. The movie, like the rest of the parts, is for supercharged drivers who like to rip the streets with screeching tires and roaring engine. The film also touches the essential element “Fury” by Vin Diesel’s vengeance to payback the killer, who knocks off his (Vin Diesel’s) girlfriend, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).

The movie starts with amazing action, with Torreto (Vin Diesel) and his pack stealing the fuel tankers. The scenes have been shot in Dominican Republic and the settings are superb, not to mention the reverse drive and great reflexes. It just gets you.

Sensing danger for his girlfriend, Toretto leaves, only to find her dead later in an assassination and car wreck plot. Toretto returns and starts the quest to kick the ass of his girlfriend’s murderer. Paul Walker who plays Brian O’Conner is an FBI agent and has a real bad company. The guy is restless from the moment he appears in the film. He also blows his nosy colleagues nose.

Now let us come to the best part of it, the ladies, I mean cars. In the beginning of the movie, Toretto or Dom drives a Chevrolet Chevelle SS and later his own muscle car Dodge Charger. Conner drives Nissan GTR and the henchman of Braga (played by John Oritz), Fenix drives Ford Gran Torrino.

There are two things worth watching in Fast & Furious 4 – Fenix and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster). She is definitely hot, no doubt Conner likes her. And Fenix, real dog.  He as a matter of movie fact dies “Between the Cars.” There is one racing event and two chases in the movie. The tracks and rules are quite different, good imagination actually.


Chris Ivery and Ellen Pompeo’s Baby

April 20, 2009

Ellen Kathleen Pompeo, who plays the title role in TV drama series, Grey’s Anatomy, is pregnant and expecting a baby. Married to Chris Ivery, known music producer, the duo have confirmed about the expected baby. The two of them got married in November 2007, of course not in a pompous manner, and have been keeping a low profile to avoid public attention. They tied up the knot at the Manhattan City Hall.

ellen-pompeo-chris-iveryChris Ivery and Ellen Popeo dated for four years before tying the knots. The glow on Ellen’s face is quite visible, but we are not sure if Grey’s Anatomy has any chapter on pre-natal complications. Rest assured, there is nothing yet in the scripts.

But that is not what the audience is interested in. It is a kind of respect the couple has earned over the last few years. They have been involved, committed and out of trouble so far. The interesting thing is that they seem to loving it, enjoying it, which is unusual in case of our celebrities.

If you are a keen movie watcher, you might have seen the movie “Role Models.” The movie is about how we ought to be happy and respect other people’s feelings, what they do, what they enjoy. I am sure many young fans are watching them with a keen eye and it is really good that they are living quite a happy life.
