The U.S. government mistakenly seized a domain belonging to FreeDNS, and put up
a banner accusing 84,000 subdomains of spreading child pornography. Most of the
subdomains belonged to small businesses which will likely never recover their
reputations.Nick Jonas

Massachusetts Senator
Scott Brown
revealed that he was a victim of sexual abuse by a camp
counselor, and physical abuse at the hands of his stepfather.

With the recent rash of performers dissing Glee,
it’s nice to see Nick Jonas not only saying he’d love to go on the show if the part was
made available, but also that he appreciates that the show is bringing music
back into schools. If he gets a part, I hope it involves a locker room scene,
because that boy’s body is amazing these days.

The new Beavis & Butthead sounds a lot like Mystery Science Theater 3000 for

found four pieces about him in two years. Now he’s defending his co-star Taylor Momsen, who’s been under fire for unprofessional behavior,
wild clothes, and a mouth that gets her into trouble. “I miss her dearly. I try
to see her as much as I can, and make it to [as many of her] shows as I can.
She’s one of my best friends. It sucks not having her around. “ As for her
return to the show, “Jenny’s always lying in wait. She could pop out of the
bushes with her machete of eyeliner at any time.”
