Casey Anthony video blog receiving much attention
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon poking of the bear that is the pop-culture world finds morbidly disturbing stuff, other things, and the mystery music video.
DON’T CARE: But the not-guilty-of-killing-her-child Casey Anthony has been all over the news the past 24 hours about a bizarre video post she made, and new details are emerging, per Radar, “In the video blog leaked online Thursday but recorded on October 13, 2011, Casey says she's adopted a dog and talks about how "surreal" her life is since the end of her trial in July.” http://bit.ly/zEjbGW
GETTIN’ WITH THE GAME: Even so, it just smells so. . .sellout-ish, per the New York Times, “Barnes & Noble, the nation’s largest book chain, said on Thursday that it was considering spinning off its Nook e-reader division in an effort to help the nascent — and expensive — digital business grow.” http://nyti.ms/AwGIWo
MEANWHILE: Don’t toss out your turntables just yet, folks. Vinyl, led by the Beatles, flexes its muscles, per Rolling Stone, “The gradual increase in vinyl sales for Abbey Road over the past few years mirrors an overall upward trend in vinyl sales, though the format only accounts for 3.9 percent of total music sales for the year.” http://bit.ly/xkqHfN
ALL IS IN ORDER: Here’s one new mom who isn’t going anywhere, as Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: SUV confirms her commitment to the show, per Deadline Hollywood, ““I’ll be back,” she said. “I can’t leave this show, I’m having too much fun.” http://bit.ly/zXwgRp
ISN’T SOCIAL MEDIA SWELL?: Just ask 50 Cent or Sinead O’Connor, just to name two, per the Los Angeles Times, “All the attention around the increasingly revealing tweets can have a dual effect. Although they generate more interest in an artist, the tweets can also chip away at an image that, in many cases, has been carefully constructed and manicured.” http://lat.ms/zKYZ8U
IT PAYS TO BE A COUPLE: Especially if you’re of the on-screen variety, and, well, have roles in Harry Potter. Forbes has a list of the top-earning duos, “Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, the actors who play Ron and Hermione, top our list of Hollywood’s Top-Earning Screen Couples. Their four Harry Potter movies in the past five years have earned a total of $4.2 billion.” http://onforb.es/An6aAA
WINNING: Yep, we’re talking about Charlie Sheen, per the AP, “(He) quietly donated $25,000 to help tornado relief in Alabama, making good on a pledge to help survivors of the deadly twisters even though some had doubted his promises.” http://apne.ws/zFF7LL
GOOD FOR THEM: Sienna Miller and boyfriend Tom Sturridge are with child, per Us Weekly, “The 30-year-old actress and Sturridge, 26, have been together for a year and "don't have plans right away to marry, if at all," (a) source says.” http://bit.ly/yZldQH
KARDASHIAN ALERT: Kim is peddling a new perfume, per E!, “Having already given Gold and Love to her fans, this time around, Kardashian is getting a little deeper with her naming technique, announcing the release of a scent called True Reflection.” http://eonli.ne/yxWEB2
HE’S NO LUKE SPENCER: But James Franco nonetheless is a valued alumnus of GH, per indieWIRE, “Co-directed by Franco and documentary filmmaker Ian Olds, (a new) film takes existing footage from Franco's stint on "General Hospital" (where he played the artist/killer Franco -- yeah, this is pretty intensely meta) and reshapes it into a "humorous psycho-thriller." Awesome.” http://bit.ly/wjHdg2
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. (Wide-screen click recommended). http://bit.ly/x3EbTT
