Cameron Diaz’s Dirty Mouth Stars in the Bad Teacher Trailer

My mum is a teacher. I have a lot of relatives, friends who are teacher. But none from my siblings. When I first saw this Cameron Diaz’ Bad Teacher movie trailer, I really laughed out loud thinking of my mum! Smiley

I can’t imagine a real teacher doing this in front of me! Let’s wait for this movie to be released! Smiley

Julio Garcia Dies on NCIS Set

I have no tv here in my apartment, so I used to keep tracks everything online. I was lurking on logo design company for the shirt designs I was tasked to do in our mini groups, just a friendly group. But since, I am very busy to have my own design, I was thinking to contact a design company to so. However, while doing such, I stumbled upon not so fresh news on some tv shows.

 

Are you used to watch NCIS? So I guess, you might be familiar with the set casts, right? But this has nothing to do with the main casts of the show instead, with the set’s security guard who died during the set’s filming last week. The show is ceasing, for the mean time from filming any shows.

 

NCIS, also known as NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service, is an American police tv-drama series on naval criminal investigation issues.

According to the report,

Garcia, 52, was on the NCIS set tenting a staging area at 10 a.m. when he was hit by a van used on the set by production.

Ralph Blunt, 60, was driving the van when he lost control of the vehicle after suffering some kind of undisclosed medical condition. The van hit Garcia and then two parked cars.

This seems to be bad!

Esperanza Spalding, 2011 Best New Artist Grammy Awardee

 

Over other new artist, Esperanza Spalding (born October 18, 1984) an American multi-instrumentalist jazz bassist and singer won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist at the 53rd Grammy Awards.

One of Esperanza Spalding’s songs.
Justin Bieber, another newest artist, has nothing to say about Spalding’s award but “I’m really happy for her, hopefully she has a good year.” But as to beating Bieber, “It doesn’t work like that, I didn’t beat him. We’re all colleagues. We’re all doing our things, respectively.”

Great and a whole-hearted singer, Esperanza Spalding deserves a hand! Smiley
