American Idol – Paula Abdul releases comeback video
21 February 2008 – Paula Abdul has released the music video for her comeback single Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow.
The song, the first new release from the pop star in over a decade, is the result of a collaboration between Paula and fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson, who appears in the video playing bass.
Simon Cowell and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest also make a cameo appearance in the video, which, according to E! Online is “terrible and awesome all at the same time”.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal claimed that the pop star is “back to her ‘normal’ self” following questionable antics on previous seasons of American Idol and her reality show Hey Paula.
It also added that the Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow single is “not that bad, surprisingly”.
The single is part of a compilation album entitled Randy Jackson’s Music Club Vol 1, which also features tunes from Mariah Carey, Jason Mraz, Travis Tritt, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora and Joss Stone, as well as former American Idol finalists Elliott Yamin and newlywed Katharine McPhee.
The album is expected to go on sale on March 11th.

There’s word that the Navy is preparing to shoot down the Spy Satellite tonight. As early as the next 30-45 minutes.
We have been on and off again for the last few days. Seas are a little rougher than the Navy would like. When the missle is fired it will be traveling at over 20k knots per hour and the impact should destroy the satellite and the benzine fuel that is in a frozen state.

Pasadena Now is reporting that this coming Friday the City of Pasadena will be conducting a citywide sweep at the most dangerous intersections around town.
The times are from 7am to 3pm. I would encourage that the city extend this to the later hours at least until 6pm and for sure they need to cover Hill and Orange Grove as well as Hill and the 210. I can’t count the number of cars I see running red lights at these intersections. Not only running red lights but speeding.
I hope this program yields some safer conditions on the roads of Pasasdena.

The Blue-Ray format has won, now that Toshiba has bowed out with their HD format.
I’m sure there will be more on this development, but for now it appears that Blue-Ray which is backed by Sony and the studios is the winner.
The good news is that you shouldn’t have any troubles finding movies in the Blue-Ray format.
Reports are coming in that the Navy could be attempting to shoot down the spy satellite that is floating in space as early as this Wednesday or Thursday.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting:
Bets are that this is a trial run for testing the star wars defense systems.
The cell companies are quickly responding to each other and the announcement of unlimited service offerings.
T-Mobile has announced that it will begin offering a $99.99 unlimited calling and text message plan starting February 21st.
AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Helio, are giving customers almost exactly the same plan, though unlike AT&T and Verizon.
Sounds like a good deal. I think these are ways to get more users hooked and then upsell the data plans.
I’m sure we will be reading more about these new plans in the coming week.
BREAKING NEWS: TVT Filing Chapter 11; Staff Fired
New York based independent record label TVT Records terminated the majority of their employees this afternoon, sources revealed to AllHipHop.com today (February 18). TVT, which is home to major recording stars like Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz, Pitbull, Ying Yang Twins, The Polyphonic Spree and others, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week. TVT Records was founded by its current President, Steve Gottlieb, who launched the label out of his New York City apartment in 1985. In addition to Hip-Hop music, the label released music by Nine Inch Nails and other influential Modern Rock, Electronica, Industrial and Nu-Metal bands. It is not known how the bankruptcy filing will affect the label’s release schedule, which includes Lil’ Jon’s highly anticipated album Crunk Rock.
