Viral Hoax verified: Jon Bon Jovi is NOT DEAD

Welcome to the viral internet age, where celebrities reach their untimely demise

Jon Bon Jovi was alive and well in New Jersey on Monday night, tweeting and posting a picture of himself in front of a Christmas tree with a date stamp to squash the crazy rumors that he was dead...This apparently isn't the first time that he has been knocked off, and thankfully for him it is not his last...Check out this video from the HollyscoopTV that verifies that Jon Bon Jovi's death was just a rumor...





Probably a good number of "This Crazy Life !!! 's Blog" have been wondering if WAHM Shelley had fallen off a cliff somewhere...No need to worry as you can see I am still hangin on, much like Cliff Hanger from Between the Lions...

Apparently celebrities other than Jon Bon Jovi have been rumored to have kicked the bucket including: Will Smith, Eddie Murphy, Johnny Depp, Jackie Chan, Justin Bieber and Queen of the little monsters Lady Gaga...But the rumor mill for this round of  Dead Jon Bon Jovi headlines was kicked off with some mixed up old news from a 2009 report about the very real death of Michael Jackson...

Stay tuned, because we are on the brink of 2012, where apparently according to the Mayan calendar all of us will be history...and then...The throat sighs!

Review Toshiba NB505 Netbook

Great gift idea, give the Toshiba NB505 Netbook

Give a new netbook as a gift and you can't possibly go wrong...You can even personalize your gift by choosing the netbook in your friends favorite color...The Toshiba NB505 is available in five different colors from Amazon... Select from blue, brown, green, turquoise or orange...The Toshiba NB505 is perfect for on the go computing, because it will fit right inside a backpack, purse or book bag...It features Wi-Fi networking capabilities and much more...

  •     Intel Atom processor N455 1.66 GHz, 512KB L2 Cache
  •     Configured with 1GB DDR2 (works at 667MHz, max 2GB)
  •     250GB (5400 RPM) Serial ATA hard disk drive
  •     10.1 inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite display at 1024 x 600
  •     Genuine Windows® 7 Starter
  •     Dimensions & Weight: 10.3 x 7.48 x 1.4 inches (WxDxH); 2.9 pounds
  •     Up to 8 hours, 21 minutes of battery life (6-cell battery; 48 Wh)

Here's a video review of the Toshiba NB505 Netbook:



Here's an excerpt from a 5/5 star rating reviewer of the Toshiba NB505:

"Great little netbook at an affordable price. Specs are pretty standard for a 2010/2011 netbook: 1G RAM, 250Gb HD, 3 USB ports, basic video camera, separate Mic & headphone jacks, sd card slot, vga output and a very useful 8h battery life.

There are a lot of netbooks like this on the market, but what really stands out for me on this one is the keyboard, FULL size main keys with ALL the cursor movement keys: DEDICATED up, down, right,left, PGUP, PGDN, HOME and END. I work a lot with excel spreadsheets and it is really uncomfortable to move pressing fn+end/up orf+end/down or ctrl+fn+home, ctrl+fn+end, etc. to move around. Also scrolling with pgup/pgdown while reading a long web page is a pain when you have to press also the fn key! With most netbooks you have to live with the fn key, not in this case, the NB505 keyboard is really practical and comfortable, almost like a full laptop or pc keyboard, even do the position of the keys is not standard, they let you do the work easier and faster.

I also really like the case feeling: like some very soft rubbery cover, it looks nice and grips nice!

Windows 7 Starter is really basic, but you can find programs, utilities and tips on the Internet to take care of the basic "missing features" like changing the background image, colors, sounds, re-size pictures, etc. I got rid of most of the Toshiba utilities and also Norton, and installed MS Security and my preferred freeware home edition utilities.

I would have liked to have stereo speakers, but the netbook only includes a mono speaker under the unit...."



You can't go wrong with the Toshiba NB505 as a gift for yourself or a loved one...It has been rated at about 4.5 stars out of five by 318 customers at Amazon...And it's the most wished for Netbook at Amazon too...

MacBook Air Pro Review Plus Top 10 Best Selling Laptops at Amazon

Apple MacBook Dominates the Top 10 List of Best Selling Laptops from Amazon


Buy a new Apple MacBook from Amazon and you will be in the best of company...Four slots out of the top ten best selling laptop computers, currently at Amazon, are from Apple, Inc...When you compare the features of each, you will have to decide which feature is more important to you...Maybe you want the largest screen available or perhaps you want the lightest laptop because you'll need to carry it during your commute on public transportation or even in your carry-on luggage, while travelling...Once you have decided which physical attributes will meet your needs, then you can decide which operating system (OS) you desire to work within...I can tell you first hand that if you choose an Apple MacBook, you do have the added bonus of being able to run Windows applications within a simulated OS...Other features which are important to consider include RAM (which helps determine how fast applications will load) and hard disk space (usually measured in gigabytes and tells how much storage space is onboard for documents, applications and all sorts of files including videos, pictures and more)...And perhaps last or first on your list will be the price...The top 10 best selling laptop computers range between $349.99 and $1709.94...So at a glance I would say that you might as well invest in a new laptop, instead of a refurbished one...It takes all the crazy mystery out of what kind of life your refurb laptop may have had prior to your second-hand ownership and why was it ditched in the first place...

The third highest sold laptop computer is the Apple MacBook Air MC965LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop...The MacBook is the go to laptop for people that tend to work with applications that require heavy computations from their laptop like graphic designers, programmers, etc...This MacBook Air has earned about 4.5 out of 5 stars from 76 reviewers at Amazon...Here's a helpful review from CNET:

Review KitchenAid Mixer Plus Top 10 Best Selling Small Kitchen Appliances at Amazon

Give The Gift of Tasty Treats With the help of a Top-rated KitchenAid Mixer

Everyone just loves this gift-giving season for many reasons...And traditionally in most workplaces you will find folks bringing in sweet treats to share with their co-workers...Homemade goodies are some of the best things people love to sample...So in keeping with the holiday spirit, I've chosen to review the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer...This nice kitchen gadget will come in handy this next few weeks to make your homemade dessert and bread making easy breezy...

The KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer averages about a 4.5 out 5 rating with nearly 1,270 Amazon reviewers...That's crazily amazing...What's even better is that it is currently 40% off...So instead of paying the regular price of $499.99 it is deeply discounted to $299.99 right now...

A purchaser of the KitchenAid KP26M1XNP Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, Nickel Pearl had this to say:

"I have been using this mixer for over a year now. Its a great investment and well worth the price.

Pros: Good speed settings from high to low. Some mixers are too fast on low speed and too quick on high. This on one has many uniform steps in speed to mix anything you throw at it. The soft start function ensures you aren't painting your walls when you flip it on. It is a very well built machine that looks nice and has amazing power. We use a very stiff and heavy dough mix for our bread recipe and it churns out a 4 loaf batch with ease. I've never been concerned that it was overloaded or was going to overheat. I was originally going to purchase a Bosch mixer before I found this one and I'm very glad I didn't. Save your money and buy some of the great attachments that go with mixer instead. The pasta maker is way fun and works great!

Cons: 1)Sometimes it has problems picking up small batches like whipping two egg whites. I have to tip the mixer occasionally to get it to grab when the bowl isn't very full. 2)This is a heavy piece of equipment. Don't give it to your 80 year old grandmother and expect her to be lugging it from the counter to the pantry.

Over all I'd buy this machine over any other on the market if your a part time or full time cook. The well built quality and construction will last for many years. I'd also give it a 5 star rating and thoroghly recomend it to anyone looking to update their mixer."


The Top 10 Best Selling Small Appliances at Amazon are:


There are a couple of days left to save extra money while you stock your kitchen with the tools and gadgets that will make your holiday season yummier...So if you didn't pick up bargains on Black Friday, do not fret because there are plenty of daily deals in queue for Cyber Monday Deals Week continuing through December 3rd at Amazon...Select a best selling small kitchen appliance from above and enjoy creating treats for your friends and family through the end of the year and beyond...

Review Panasonic HDC-TM900K Plus Top 10 Best Selling Camcorders Amazon

Panasonic HDC 3D Compatible Camcorders Are Holding Down the Top 2 Slots

This is a great time of year to buy great gifts for that special someone in your life...Black Friday 2011 may be history by less than a week, but thanks to the genuises at Amazon they have extended the savings with Cyber Monday Deals Week...Cyber Monday Deals Week will bring you new deals daily to save you lots of money on the products that almost everyone on your gift giving list has wished for...Electronics are a sure to please favorite...And with the many great features that are available now due to advancing technologies, you are sure to find something that fits the bill perfectly...

Take for instance the Panasonic HDC-TM900K, it has been rated at about 4.5 out of five stars overall by satisfied customers...The HDC-TM900K (shown here with optional lens) features an Advanced 3MOS System which allows you to produce colorful, bright, beautiful images in Full-HD quality...And its 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colors - red, green and blue - and processes each color with its own individual sensor...And this allows rendering of images with colors, details and gradation all with intricate detail and natural beauty, which maximizes the inherent quality of Full-HD progressive images...

The #1 top rated review (5 out of 5 stars) of one of the Panasonic HDC-TM900K had this to say
"As a TV Broadcast Engineer, I know when things are "right". In any design, there have to be compromises.All of these small cameras are compromises. I bought the TM-900 for one reason -it's 1000 line resolution in 1080P. You can't touch that for at least another $2K. What I was surprised about is that Panasonic went all-out trying to top the competition. Say, compared with a Canon M41 (comparable price range) the Panasonic has a FAR better viewfinder and LCD screen. The Canon doesn't have any focus ring and the TM's is superb and versatile. The controls for manual adjustment are light-years better on the Panasonic. The TM has Person identification, not just face ID. This one is amazing- the TM allows you to use the camera's inside processing chips while you edit with their editor- to hyper-speed the video conversion when making DVD's and Blu-Rays. That's progressive engineering...."





The Top 10 Best Selling Camcorders at Amazon are:



Since you've seen the top 10 best selling camcorders at Amazon all that's left to do is to choose, buy, aim and let your creative juices flow...This is a great time to get a great deal on a cool camcorder so that you can capture all the crazy family moments to share for many years to come...I recommend that you can't go wrong with the Panasonic HDC-TM900K because based on the reviews, it truly delivers unbeatable quality within its price range of comparable camcorders...

Top 20 Best Selling Tablet PCs at Amazon

Kindle Fire is #1 but Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a Strong Contender

Cyber Monday Deals Week is in full effect today through December 3rd at Amazon...Black Friday's consumer spending this year was higher than it was last year...This weekend a new spending record was set at $52.4 billion...People are really getting into the holiday spirit...Well, it's Cyber Monday and there are plenty of deals to be had online and especially at Amazon.com...One of the hottest items of the year is the tablet PC...And lots of people will probably be stuffing stockings with those little gems...

I read today that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet PC won top honors in two categories at TrustedReviews... The Asus Eee Pad Transformer won in both the "Tablet of the Year" and the "Laptop of the Year" categories and then was named "Product of the Year"...Mainly because people really like how easily it transforms, hence the name, from a stand alone tablet to a very usable laptop device...Now if you are interested in buying one of these little transformers, you'll have to purchase the docking station (with keyboard on deck) separate, which gives it that laptop appeal...Another notable quality is that while docked the battery lasts about 14 hours (without the dock the battery life is 9 hours)...FYI, the Transformer also took the top prize of "Tablet of the Year" at the T3 Awards this month too...The Asus Eee Pad Transformer comes in at the numbers four and five slots on Amazon's Best Selling Computer Tablet list, while undoubtedly Amazon's Kindle Fire takes the number one position...




The Top 20 Best Selling Tablets at Amazon are listed here to ease your gift-giving selection process: (Please note that prices and availability are subject to change; Side note-these crazy prices were changing as I was drafting this article...Urgh!!!)



Which tablet PC do you think is the coolest???...Which one will you be giving this year???...Which tablet would you like to receive this year for being nice (instead of naughty)???...Let us know in the comments below...If I had to choose today, I would choose the Kindle Fire...

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, YouTube Trailer

Watch "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" Trailer in HD

This newly released film is based on the novel written by Stephanie Meyer, Breaking Dawn, a vampires love story...The fourth novel was broken in two parts due to the complexity and length for film adaption...The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 has earned over $291 million worldwide since it's opening on November 18th...This  romantic fantasy movie's second part, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is due to be released November 16, 2012...Summit Entertainment has produced the Twilight movie franchise and began with the release of Twilight in 2008, followed by The Twilight Saga: New Moon in November 2009 and then The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in June 2010...

Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn features Kristen Stewart in the role of Isabella "Bella" Swan, Robert Pattinson as Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black...Filming locations included Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Vancouver, Canada, Squamish, British Columbia and St. Thomas Island in the Caribbean...The movie is rated PG-13 and does not include the graphic gory details of the novel because it's rating would have had to have been raised to rated R and thusly preventing a large majority of the franchise's fanbase (the under 18 year olds) from freely attending the movie in theaters...

Kristen Stewart remarks about filming a particular scene in the movie, "I wanted to run down the aisle. I was literally pulling away from Billy Burke. Now it's a trip to watch the wedding scenes. It was so volatile and emotional—I was being such a crazy person." ...

Near the 30 year anniversary of the death of Natalie Wood, one of America's legendary actresses, new evidence has prompted the new inquiry surrounding the circumstances of her death on November 29, 1981...At the time of her death there were three other people aboard the yacht which she owned with her husband, Robert Wagner, the star of the television series Hart-to-Hart...Some of the inconsistencies in the stories of the persons on board the yacht, Splendour, surround whether she had gone to her stateroom before her husband and others and whether or not the family's guest Christopher Walken had retired before Natalie had...Her husband, Robert, has claimed that he last saw her alive in their state room as she was doing something with her hair...He then returned to the deck area to socialize more with their guest, Mr. Walken...Mr. Wagner's version of the tale of that night's unfortunate turn of events changed in regards to how the bottle of wine was broken...While the main person with a completely different narration of events was the captain of the boat for the evening, Dennis Davern...Mr. Davern has worn many hats in respect to his relationship with Robert Wagner and his deceased wife Natalie Wood...Dennis Davern has been reported as having been a bodyguard to Natalie and a confidante...Other times he has been described as a former roommate to Robert Wagner...And right now he wears the hat of co-author of a book with Marti Rulli entitled, Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour...Mr. Davern's most recent account of that fateful night involve accusations, arguments and unexplained bruises...

Black Friday 2011 is less than a week away...

The Countdown for Major Deals and Giveaways That Holiday Shoppers and Retailers are Anxious For is On

Major retailers are starting Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving Thursday...WalMart and Toys R Us will be opening at 10 pm Thursday night...Best Buy will be will open on "Black Midnight"...The ads are out and the race is on...Which retailers have your attention???...

Well unfortunately for Target the attention they are getting is negative press...Because one of their employees, Anthony Hardwick of Nebraska, has started a petition at change.org against working Thursday night...He's determined that he'll have to go to sleep early afternoon on Thanksgiving, instead of enjoying time with friends and family, so that he will be well rested enough to perform well on his 10-hour shift that begins at 11pm...Well over 193,00 supporters have joined Anthony Hardwick...One of the supporters, Deborah Schwartz, had this to say:

"I'm so tired of turning on the news the Monday after Black Friday and having to hear about how much money the big retailers did or didn't make. As if that's the point of our year-end holidays. I'm tired of Christmas being promoted BEFORE Halloween. I'm sick and tired of these attempts to brainwash us into thinking Christmas is about how much money we spend. Every American has the right to spend Thanksgiving with their families - its a national holiday! This is employee-abuse, plain and simple, and an threat to EVERY American worker. Target, stop exploiting your employees! (Thanks, Anthony, for creating this petition.)"

Diaspora social network was started by four New York University students, Ilya Zhitomirskiy, Dan Grippi, Max Salzberg and Raphael Sofaer...They actually came up with the crazy idea not to sell or share YOUR personal information which you have entrusted in their network (to advertising companies for monetary gain)...Their inspiration came when they sat in on an address by Dr. Eben Moglen, a Columbia University law professor, to the Internet Society's New York Chapter...Dr. Moglen attributed centralized social networks of "spying for free"...

Crowd sourcing was used to generate startup capital for Diaspora, the not for profit, user owned distributed social networking site...On April 24, 2010, Kickstarter, a microfunding website launched their project for them, estimating that it might take 39 days to raise the assessed $10,000 that they required to get their project officially off the ground...Well, within 12 days they had raised their measley $10k and raised a total of $200,000 from more than 6500 investors including Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook...It was the second most successfully launched project on the Kickstarter website...

On November 23, 2010 the alpha version of Diaspora was released privately by invitation only... The Diaspora Foundation website launched at the end of September 2011...Next a fundraising campaign which started in October 2011 was temporarily suspended when PayPal froze the foundation's account (which had raised over $45k dollars in a few days) and then eventually releasing it without an explanation or apology... So of course the foundation diversified its funding streams by adding Stripe and Bitcoin as donation avenues...

In an equally strange turn of events one of the co-founders, Ilya Zhitomirskiy died, at the age of 22, on November 12, 2011 from an apparent suicide...Some speculate that

Heavy D's Funeral will be Friday, Nov. 18th in Mt. Vernon, NY

Heavy D's Autopsy has been completed... Although the coroner has not released the results


The Entertainment Industry, stars, fans, friends and family of Dwight Arrington Myers, bka "Heavy D" are still reeling from his sudden death...It seems he was poised for a comeback, potentially courting thirty-something year old hip-hop fans...Standing 6'3" and usually weighing in over 300 lbs, he had managed to shed 150 lbs in 2005 for the lead role for a Will Smith production, "Medal of Honor Rag"...You can see in the photo above how much lighter he looked in 2008... But you will see in the report below from ABC News that last month, October 2011, when he performed, at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, for the first time in over 15 years that he had regained a lot of the lost weight...

"Smokin' Joe" Frazier and "Heavy D" both died on November 8, 2011...

Boxing fans worldwide and Hip Hop Music fans around the globe are mourning the deaths of two great men, each in their respective arenas...Boxing legend "Smokin' Joe" Frazier died from the effects of liver cancer at the age of 67 in Philadelphia on the same day as "Heavy D" on November 7, 2011 (I apologize for erroneously reporting that Joe Frazier and Heavy D died on the same day...The news reports of both deaths were heavily reported on the same day November 8, 2011)...Heavy D died on November 8, 2011 at a hospital in Los Angeles at 1pm...

Joe Frazier's professional boxing record was 32-4-1 with 27 knockouts...He held the World Heavyweight Championship belt from 1968 to 1973...Before turning professional, Frazier also won the heavyweight gold medal in the 1964 Summer Olympic Games...Although he defeated Muhammad Ali, his archenemy, in the 15th round in the 1971 "Fight of the Century", he was defeated by Ali in the 14th round in the 1975 "Thrilla in Manila" fight in the Philippines... The infamous boxing promoter Don King said that Frazier was, "the embodiment of what a great heavyweight champion and person should be."...





Sadly enough Dwight Arrington Myers, bka "Heavy D", also died on Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at the age of 44 apparently of respiratory distress after having flu-like symptoms the day before prompting a visit to the
doctor...And his cousin, Ruddy Phillips said that he had been complaining of having a "touch of pneumonia"... Heavy D turned actor after first achieving success as a rapper, record producer, singer and the former leader of Heavy D and the Boyz...Heavy D was nominated for several awards including four grammys and won the award for Best Rap Album in 1990 at the Soul Train Awards...Having acted on television and in motion pictures his latest work can be seen in theaters now in the film "Tower Heist", which was premiered just four days before his death...







It's truly a sad and crazy coincidence that these two truly great men died on the same day...
