How much do you think Spongebob is worth?


$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.

It looks like one half of Jodeci is attempting to spark a comeback to the music scene. My only question is... why the name "Nodeci"?

DeVante (Donald DeGrate, Jr.) and Mr. Dalvin (Dalvin DeGrate) are tackling this project without K-Ci & Jo-Jo. Although I do appreciate the raw lyrical content for all you summer-baby-making people... did they really have to remake the chorus to Feenin' ("I Got This")?

Here are two new tracks:

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.

"The M64 Collabo" - Ragen Fykes + Ohmega Watts


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.

Mickey Rourke As "Whiplash" (Iron Man 2)


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.

Just Imagine


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.
