Anna Nicole: Life As An Illegal Alien

ANNA NICOLE SMITH: LIFE AS AN IMITATION OF LIFE

For fans mourning Anna Nicole Smith, will three months be enough time before they’re ready to see the reality-TV star spoof herself again? After canceling several theatrical screenings, Edgewood Productions announced plans to release the film on DVD in May, a date they had arrived at before Smith’s untimely passing. Filming had wrapped by the end of 2005 but Illegal Aliens was still in the post-production stage when Smith’s son, 20-year-old Daniel Smith, who served as an associate producer on the film, died suddenly in September.

It remains to be seen whether Smith doing a send-up of an airhead celeb and her place in the Hollywood machine—a persona she had no trouble milking on the unscripted The Anna Nicole Show—will be perceived as funny or just plain morbid.

At first look, Illegal Aliens appears to be just another low-budget sci-fi comedy poking fun at Hollywood’s big-budget flicks,” executive producer John James has stated. “Now with the passing of its star, you’ll find it to be replete with metaphors of her life…This movie may just be the Abbey Road of films for Anna Nicole Smith fans.”

Whether that’s true or not, the film does feature Smith, who helped bankroll the project and is listed as a producer, as an alien who takes the shape of a human bombshell who teams up with two other hotties to take on an evil intergalactic terrorist played by Joanie Laurer, aka ex-wrestler Chyna.

My Dots for Tuesday, March 27, 2007

A staff member with Sen. John McCain’s presidential bid set up a McCain campaign website on Myspace. Big problem: they made unauthorized use of someone else’s website template.

The owner then changed the template on the website to read: “Today I announce that I have reversed my position and come out in full support of gay marriage.”

Payback!!

Closely following this year’s venerable Academy Awards ceremonies in Hollywood, YouTube has debuted its own version of the Oscars, with its on-line video awards competition. Drawing from its vast online vault of millions of viral videos, YouTube has proclaimed the 2006 YTAward winners.

This posting presents an article about the YouTube awards and announces the winner in each of seven major categories. In addition, the seven winning videos are included for your viewing pleasure.

Citizendium, a peer-reviewed progressive branch of Wikipedia, has been launched. The site was unveiled on Sunday, and as of yesterday afternoon it boasted publication of more than 1,100 articles. While this is a far cry from the more than 1.6 million entries in Wikipedia’s English version, it’s still a respectable start.

YouTube Inaugurates First YTAwards

THE YOUTUBE VIDEO AWARDS

ABC News reported yesterday:

“Fifty years ago there were two award shows, one for movies and the other for television. In those days, there were only three TV networks and surfing was relegated to bodies of water.

Today, Americans have access to hundreds of television channels and countless Internet sites. To keep up with this tsunami of programming choices, hundreds of awards shows have popped up, honoring everything from the best of the best to the worst of the worst.

And now, not too far from the palm tree-lined streets of Hollywood, YouTube, the 900-pound gorilla of the Internet, has debuted its own awards.

From its online trove of millions of viral videos starring LonelyGirl15, AskaNinja or the Numa Numa guy, San Bruno, Calif.-based YouTube nominated 70 videos for consideration. The categories include “most creative” — innovative and cutting edge video — and “most inspirational” — things that make you think or feel. And let’s not overlook “most adorable” video ever — so cute it hurts.

Each of the seven categories (the envelope, please!) has 10 nominees selected from the site’s most watched and top-rated original videos. Last week, the site’s visitors were invited to watch and vote on YouTube’s award show page. YouTubers rated the videos from favorite to least favorite.

The YTA winners were announced today on the YouTube Awards Web page, http://www.youtube.com/YTAwards. According to YouTube, the winners will receive a trophy and are expected to post some sort of virtual acceptance speech on the site.”

And (long drumroll) The YTAwards for 2006 go to:

 TIME TO REBOOT: VIRUS ALERT
Time to Reboot Video: Grand Opera Version

[tags: blogs, technology, computers, virus, video]

Jennifer Holliday landed her first big stage role on Broadway in 1979. When only seventeen years-old, Holliday landed a part the same day that she auditioned for the Broadway production of Your Arms Too Short To Box With God. Her performance in that musical earned her a 1981 Drama Desk nomination. Her next role was the role for which she is best known: The role of Effie Melody White in the Broadway musical Dreamgirls. Holliday joined the show in December 1981 and remained with the show for nearly four years. Her performance in the role was widely acclaimed, particularly in her iconic performance of the musical number that ends Act I, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”.

Among the acclaim was Holliday’s sweep of awards in 1982, including the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, a Grammy award for her recorded version of the song, and Drama Desk and Theater World awards for the performance.
