$50 million? $500 million maybe? Try $8 billion! That's right the lovable sponge that keeps kids and adults laughing has grown into a $8 billion/year franchise for Nickelodeon's parent company Viacom. To put that figure in perspective Spongebob accounts for approximately two-thirds of Viacom's annual revenue while BET, MTV, Paramount Studios and many others make up the rest of the annual revenue. It's pretty easy to see why the franchise is such a valuable asset to the company.
Apart from single-handedly keeping Viacom financially healthy Spongebob is also about to celebrate another landmark achievement, it's 10th anniversary. With an exciting line-up of events and partnerships to help commemorate the event that yearly revenue figure is sure to keep growing. To read more about this topic take a look at the article Advertising Age magazine wrote on it here.

Last night the guys and I decided to through a little BBQ to have some fun, chill out, and get hammered. We also took the opportunity to do some creative thinking and to release some of our ideas to one another for future projects. I will like to report that many great ideas surfaced and were brought into the light. All of these ideas and projects will be delivered to all of you soon; some soon than others but were definitely working on it. So just continue to support and keep posted. Were much much much MORE than just a blog. All of you will know what I'm talking about real soon...
PS. The BBQ was insane; every man was BLASTED and SMASHED... I'll put it like this, it took me til 3 30 today to recover from last nighs events (LOL). We were going to record and take pictures of the whole night but we were simply too hammered to get any useful material. Sorry yall but next time we’ll have a designated camera man, I promise.

Producer/emcee Ohmega Watts has joined forces with vocalist Ragen Fykes, and the result is "The M64 Collabo". Their first single "Rhythm Of The Drum" is something very relaxed but yet decidedly Hip Hop. Fykes' vocals dance, over Watts' mellow swing, and when you pair this with the the second song, "In The Pocket," you'll immediately crave for the release of the entire project.
"Rythm Of the Drum + MP3"
What A Bam Bam !!
"The M64 Collabo" - "Rythm Of the Drum" + "In The Pocket"--- DownLoad
"Messier 64" known as "M64" is a galaxy famous for it's the way it was created. Two galaxies collided and resulted in the formation of a new star system. It is well known among amateur astronomers because of its appearance in small telescopes. A collision of two galaxies has left a merged star system with an unusual appearance as well as bizarre internal motions.
Not sure how much everyone out there knows about Ironman 2 or my good friend Mickey Rourke (lol), but it's confirmed that Tony Stark’s nemesis in the sequel will be none other than Whiplash. Whiplash is one of Ironman’s original foes and keeping with the theme of this post, here is some info you might find interesting concerning Mickey Rourke’s latest character.
Whiplash first appeared in Marvel comics in 1968 and was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan.
His real name is Mark Scarlotti.
Scarlotti, like Tony Stark, is a genius level weapon developer.
Scarlotti worked for the crime organization named Maggia.
While working for Maggia, Scarlotti took an assignment to go undercover and work for Stark Industries to steal intelligence and eventually take down Tony Stark.
During his time as a weapons developer, Scarlotti developed duo cybernetically controlled titanium whips that he uses to deflect bullets, smash his opponents and vault his body over obstacles.
Once the whips were developed, Scarlotti became Whiplash and attacked Tony Stark.
Whiplash is defeated at the hands of Ironman and his body is returned to Maggia.
Whiplash, embarrassed, is kicked out of Maggia and changes his name to Backlash.
Backlash blames Tony Stark and Ironman for his demise and vowed revenge.
Iron Man 2 is set to be released on April 30th 2010 and will be one of a series of super hero films (including Thor and Captain America) that will eventually set up the Avengers movie which will be released in 2011.
Rapper Big Pooh (of Little Brother), Joe Scudda, Chaundon, and Jozeemo collaborate together to bring us Reservoir Dogs, the mixtape. The first track to leak off the tape is “Family Affair”. There is no set date yet for the mixtape so stay tuned for more info.
Now i know that you are thinking yes this is just a concept phone but if you think about it and the way that the technology is moving at a rapid pace i strongly believe that this phone can be seen in the near future. The reason why i believe that is because since I've been on this planet Ive seen technology change a lot for example just look at video games..when the first consoles came around they were only used for their specific purpose now a days we use them to save our music watch D VD's and also watch blue rays not to mention that now a days we don't even need a controller to control the game we are playing...Better yet, just compare the i phone to the first cell phone made....I am not saying yes this cell phone will be coming out in the near future but what im saying is don't be surprised if you do see this sort of technology in the near future.
