Lady Gaga Will Make Her Film Debut in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills

Robert Rodriguez’s TwitterRobert Rodriguez is shooting Machete Kills, the sequel to the 2010 film Machete (which was a feature based on the fake trailer used in Rodriguez’ Grindhouse). the film will feature two important things: Charlie Sheen as the President of the United States and Lady Gaga as La Chameleon.

The Austin-based filmmaker tweeted recently:

I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away! yfrog.com/kezw3dnj

IMDB tells us that Mel Gibson’s also on the bill, as well as Edward James Olmos. Oh, and Amber Heard is to play “Miss San Antonio,” making this very B-movieish. without seeing a trailer, or an image beyond the intense closeup of Danny Trejo’s face, the movie looks to be pretty fun.

    NYC Nordstrom means a slew of new jobs

    It’s official: Seattle’s best clothier is finally opening a big store in the Big Apple.

    Nordstrom confirmed that it will open a long-awaited Manhattan flagship at Broadway and West 57th Street. The Post first reported the location Tuesday on its website.

    At a splashy SoHo press conference yesterday with Mayor Bloomberg at his side, Pete Nordstrom, president of merchandising for the luxe retailer, said the 285,000-square-foot store will stretch seven stories high — two more than the next-tallest shop in the 231-store chain.

    “we fully expect this to be our most productive store,” Nordstrom said.

    Officials said it will be located at 225 W. 57th St., anchoring a mixed-use skyscraper that will be erected by new York real-estate mogul Gary Barnett of Extell Development.

    Bloomberg called the new Midtown tower, which is slated to open in 2018, “a smart fashion statement,” gushing that it will create 1,000 new jobs and 5,000 construction jobs.

    The news ends more than a decade of speculation about where and when Nordstrom would announce a Manhattan flagship. The retailer had scrutinized sites including the former Drake Hotel site, the World Financial Center and the Hudson Yards.

    Nordstrom told The Post that he was seduced by “the amount of people and the possibilities” in the area surrounding 225 W. 57th, which is just a block south of Columbus Circle.

      • In the commercial, a team of professionals creates a the dark Knight Rises edition of the 2012 Chrysler 300S, complete with a jet turbine and rockets in the grille.
      • The dark Knight Rises debuts on July 20.

      DETROIT — Hot on the heels of the “Imported from Gotham City” fan contest that kicked off earlier this week, Chrysler has debuted a video spot that combines clips from the upcoming the dark Knight Rises film with the 2012 Chrysler 300S.

      The commercial starts out with dramatic music from the upcoming film and shows a crew starting to disassemble a brand-new 2012 Chrysler 300S in a warehouse. the team slowly puts back together a vehicle fit for Batman, installing huge wheels, rockets in the grille, matte-gray paneling and a jet turbine in the rear of the beastly sedan.

      The Detroit automaker shows off the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine under the hood, and the car fittingly wears a license plate that reads “DK-300S.”

      The dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20. Chrysler said a 2012 Chrysler 300S will be driven by a government official in the movie.

      Inside Line says: although it may be sweeter than a stock 2012 Chrysler 300S, this 300 dark Knight Rises edition doesn’t have anything on the Tumbler.

        Samsung Galaxy S3 VS HTC One X

        Cell Phones Comparisons — By on April 6, 2012 at 2:42 pm

        The season of smartphone has already begun with the release of three different class phones i.e. HTC One X, HTC One V and HTC One S. Today we are comparing the upcoming giant Samsung Galaxy S3 with HTC One X.

        We know it is not great to compare the fictional and the original, but we are comparing the specification, which we believe would be added to the new daddy of galaxy family.

        There is an image released by Korean company that the device (Samsung Galaxy S3) may release on May 22. so just to spice up the rumors lets us compare rumored v/s released.

        Processor & GPU

        As we know that HTC One X has two versions of Processor i.e. Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC for International users which will be a quad core, with 1.5GHz. a fifth core to easily get the tasks done also supports the device. for HTC One X AT&T users, the processor has different processor provided by Qualcomm. the processor is Snapdragon S4 which is only a dual-core processor. but the important difference here is that the cores of S4 is faster than that of Tegra 3 and hence scores better on International user’s processor.

        Now for Samsung Galaxy S3, the rumours has hit and said that the device would be supported by a ARM A9 processor with Exynos 4212 chip. the processor is quad-core and none other than Samsung designs the chip. it is also been rumored that the device will be clocked at 1.8GHz. now this is way faster than that of HTC One X. the GPU is still not been rumored by anyone, but even if they use the previous GPU and work over it a bit, this will definitely score over the latest sensation HTC One X.

        Now the Supportive Elements:

        FeatureHTC One XSamsung Galaxy S3 (Rumored)Storage and Ram32GB Storage with 1GB RAM32GB Storage and 2GB RAMDisplay4.7inch Super LCD with 720p resolution.4.6inch Super AMOLED HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution.OS and ExtraAndroid ICS 4.0Android ICS 4.0Camera8MP with ImageSense technology12MP Camera (Rumored)

        Verdict:

        Though Samsung Galaxy S3 is rumored to be the phone of the year, HTC One X has done enough to beat the rumors of the Galaxy S3 in terms of daily use of Cameras and the music with the integration of high quality image sensing for camera and beats audio for MP3s. Samsung Galaxy now has developed another big competitor other than Apple iPhone i.e. HTC One X.

          In Laconia, Gingrich begins final push for N.H. Primary votes, says he’ll be ‘paycheck president’

          LACONIA — In a room jammed with media and security, former Speaker of the U.S. House and GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich told nearly 100 people at the historic Belknap Mill Wednesday that he would create a “dynamic society” should he be elected president.

          Gingrich surged to the top of the Republican polls after a solid showing in an earlier series of televised debates put faded to a poor fourth place showing in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses. since emerging as a serious threat to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s status as the perceived front-runner in the race he has been the subject of a barrage of television attack ads produced and paid for by a “supper pac” run by Romney associates.

          In Laconia, Gingrich said he would incentivize Americans by limiting regulations and laws that inhibit innovation and productivity.

          Concentrating most of his criticism on President Barack Obama, not Romney, Gingrich said he is Adam Smith as compared to Obama being Saul Alinsky.

          Adam Smith, the 18th Century author of the “Wealth of Nations” is considered by some to be the father of modern-day capitalism, while Alinsky — the author of “Rules for Radicals” — is considered by many to be the father of modern-day community organizing.

          Gingrich said if elected he would reinvigorate the “supply-side” economic theory that he credits with bringing the United States out of the economic malaise that ended in the early 1980s, after Ronald Reagan assumed office.

          A junior congressman at the time, he said he is the person to govern because he was able to work as a Republican with a U.S. Congress lead by Massachusetts Democrat and long-time Speaker Thomas “Tip” O’Neil.

          Gingrich’s three-point plan would reduce the capital gains tax to zero percent, lower the corporate tax rate from 35-percent to 12.5-percent and allow companies to expense capital purchases at 100-percent per year to keep America on the cutting edge of procuring new equipment.

          He said, if elected, he would also ask the current Congress to repeal two pieces of legislation: Sarbanes-Oxley, that was passed as a response to the Enron meltdown and Dodd-Frank legislation that was signed by Obama in 2010 and purports to improve consumer protections and reign in Wall Street abuses.

          “I would rehire none of the people from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency),” he said to applause and cheers.

          Gingrich also said he believes he could go into any neighborhood in the country and the people there will pick a pay check over food stamps.

          “Obama is the best food stamp president, and I want to be the best pay check president,” he said.

          As to Romney, Gingrich described himself as a true conservative and Romneyas the former moderate governor of a liberal Massachusetts.

          He said he would be the better man to challenge Obama in the presidential race because Obama would have a billion dollars to spend and all of it would be spent negatively “because he has nothing positive to say.”

          “This will come to a straight-out fight,” said Gingrich about the upcoming race for president, adding Romney is not the person who can “look Obama in the eye and tell him he is wrong.”

          Gingrich will be at the Inn at Church Landing in Meredith tonight at 7 p.m. while Romney is scheduled to appear in Laconia on Friday night; his campaign had not announced a venue as of last evening.
