Michael Franzese the born again mobster

Michael FranzeseMike Franzese was, at one time, considered the youngest and most wealthiest mobster by Fortune Magazine. He was ranked #18 in the magazineunder “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”. He ran everything from gasoline schemes to movie production. Very well rounded mobster. He was sent to prison in the 80s but never turned on his fellow criminals. Well rounded and honorable.

During the making of his last movie, he met a dancer from L.A., 19 year old Camille Garcia, who was a christian and later became his wife. Soon after, Micheal Franzese gave up his life of crime and also became born again. This, of course, did not stop him from making a boat load of money. He started doing speaking engagements, writing books, and appearing on network television as a talking head. He wrote in his books all about his life of crime of which he nowis making millions off of. I guess that sometimes crime does pay.

Keith and the girl

And, no, this is not about me. This is about Keith Malley who DID own the domain thesimpsonsmovie.com until Twentieth Century Fox whined to the World Intellectual Property Organization. Keith Malley owned the domain and had redirected the site to his other website keithandthegirl.com

This is world wide capitalism at its best. What do you think the chances are that the WIPO would rule in my favor to have keithwhitt.com given to me?


Weigh Down diet

The word diet comes from the latin diaeta which means a way of living. Unfortunately, most diets focus only on eating, giving quick but temporary results associated with weight loss. A true diet should encompass a regiment that is all encompassing, realistic, and pleasurable. No one is going to stick to a routine that they find unenjoyable.

The Weigh Down diet takes it to a whole new level. Not only does it encompass the physical and emotional, but the spiritual as well. Therein lies the problem. The diet is strictly tied into the Remnant Fellowship Church founded by Gwen Shamblin. The diet is basically a witness to the Christian faith. According to the Weigh Down diet, being overweight is a sin. Sounds more fun than you can point a stick at. Imagine feeling damned, not just by society and peers for being overwieght, but that God Himself is seriously thinking about putting you in the “special” hell for fat people.

Beyonce falls

If a diva falls alone in her home does it make the news? How about if she falls in front of 20,000 people? Today’s top headlines are filled with Beyonce Knowles’ fall during a performance in Florida. Speculation is arising whether the superstar is going to change her name from Beyonce to Bouncie and join the World Wrestling Federation. The girl has got some talent as well as resiliancy. I think it would make a perfect match.
