Las Vegas magician Jeff McBride of "The World's Greatest Magic Show," started performing when he was a teenager at the Orange County Fair in upstate New York. By his twenties, McBride was opening for rock bands like Cheap Trick, touring with Diana Ross and headlining at The Hilton in Las Vegas. But at the height of his success, this young illusionist was overcome by the urge to explore new territory. So began his search for the source of real magic: a journey to the mythological roots of this art form that would lead deep into the worlds of neo-paganism, drum circles and fire rituals. He would return a changed man. Now he tours all over the world and also teaches magic to other magicians.
I used to think that the smallest possible bikini was worn by the Snakebabe Maria Gara but how wrong was I. Take a look at this photo of Claudia Gestro, who is wearing this really hot swimsuit that shows her perfect body. The matching bikini top and G-string are from Dangerous Curves and is called "Ice Slice."
So if you are a woman, you must check out Dangerous Curves Swimwear selection. Some of the company's most popular products include the new "scratch n' sniff" banana-flavored g-string (that really does smell like bananas when scratched), and the new Lacer series of Brazilian bikinis are also proving widely popular. Back in 2000, the company was one of the first to market the totally see-through sheer and fishnet bikinis, which have been adopted by numerous bikini manufacturers in recent years. Although they leave little to the imagination, it's no surprise that they're still some of the company's top sellers.
And if you are a guy, buy one for that special someone. If not, this photo is from their Dangerous Curves 2007 Bikini Calendar and you can have it. Other models featured are C.J. Gibson, Loredana Ferriolo, Tiffany Selby, Jennifer Nicole Lee, Amanda Carrier, Kara Monaco, Tamira Fox, Ashley Smith, Jennifer Callaway, Carmen Ortega, and Raquel Gibson.
Eva Mendes, the Latina hottie, is featured on the cover of Maxim, and like always she has interesting things to say. What really caught my attention was her comments about fellow Hispanic-American Cameron Diaz (though I wonder why she forgot Vida Guerra or Carolina Bacardi or Salma Hayek). This is what she says, "If I were a guy I'd ask Cameron to marry me. She's got the greatest spirit and she has the cutest, tighest butt. Her butt is so cute I can't take it." To the best of our knowledge, Cameron did not have a Brazilian butt lift or butt augmentation procedure, but you can, if that is what you want.
Todd Fritsch is out with his debut video, "What's Wrong With Me." The fast-paced, action-packed, hilarious video features baseball's superstar pitcher Roger Clemens and country music legend Eddy Raven. Roger "The Rocket" Clemens makes his appearance with a split-finger fastball that sends Todd into the dunking booth at the historic Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Frelsburg, Texas. During the big party scene (filmed at the world-famous Russ Allen Ranch "Party Barn"), Eddy Raven portrays a Mad Chef who steals the ladies and serves up a mean rubber chicken.
Director Robby Springfield and Director of Photography Steve Childress helped Fritsch capture the "small town Texas" feel that he wanted, and Todd's friends, family and fans can be seen throughout the piece. "It was a blast," says Todd, who performed his own stunts for the video.
Hollywood star Katherine Heigl has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role on Grey's Anatomy. However, like almost all celebrities, her talent was first noticed in the Side Effects movie, which is now available on DVD. The movie highlights the shenigans of American pharmaceutical companies that will do anything to get your money, even if the drug kills you.
"I was fortunate to have landed Katherine right before she started shooting Grey's Anatomy," said filmmaker Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau. "Fans who love her as 'Izzie' will be blown away by her in Side Effects, which is all Katherine, all the time."
