We learned yesterday in our Phonology class why Britney Spears pronounce the letter “L” in a supralabial way. She was raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, a state located in the southern region of the United States, a region that was colonized by the French Empire. The French usually pronounce the letter “L” by touching the upper lip with the tongue, and this became part of the Southern way of speaking. Britney uses this peculiar detail as a particular signature.

Released on November 14, 1995, One Sweet Day became the longest running number one single in US Billboard Hot 100 history at 16 weeks atop the chart  from December 2, 1995 to March 16, 1996One Sweet Day became Carey’s tenth chart topping single on the Billboard Hot 100 and Boyz II Men’s fourth. The song also achieved strong success around the world, topping the charts in Canada and New Zealand, and reaching the top-ten in Australia, Belgium, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Additionally, it was ranked first in Rolling Stones reader’s poll for the Best Collaboration of All Time.

Let me put it into perspective, it’s the day before St. Patrick’s day, and the number one song in the country has been the same every week since almost a month before Christmas.

Don’t Forget About Us | Mariah Carey (2005)
"That [pool scene] shot was totally and completely inspired by ‘Something’s Got to Give,’ Marilyn Monroe’s last movie that never got finished. It’s an homage to her, because I’ve never seen anyone re-create it. So many people have emulated so many of Marilyn’s classic moments, but it’s just that I’m a big fan of hers, and I thought it was really pretty at night with the pool. No one could ever be as fabulous as Marilyn was, but it’s in honor and homage to her"

I’m sorry, I would bang the hell out of Daniel Tosh. I’ve loved him since 2005, and I met him in 2008 at his stand-up show, and I was a complete wreck, but he hugged me and was super nice. 

Just renewed my domain PoisonParadise.com for my 9th year.

It will be 10 years in Nov, 2013, along with the 10th anniversary of Britney’s In The Zone

I 1st bought this domain exactly 12 days after In The Zone came out. Toxic wasn’t even announced as a single yet but I just loved it, and knew it was going to be big. I just used the domain to host personal files, songs, and random stuff. I was just a dumb kid! It wasn’t until 2009 when I made this tumblr blog that I used it for this. :)

So, kids. This is actual “swag”. Because he doesn’t go around saying “swag” and because he’s one of the top models in the world and half the shit he wears he gets for free from designers just because they want people to see him in it.

The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), pronounced “JIF”, was designed by CompuServe and the official specification released in June of 1987.

The pronunciation of “GIF” is specified in the GIF specification to be “jif”, as in “jiffy”, rather then “gif”, which most people seem to prefer. This does seem strange because the “G” is from the word “Graphics” and not “Jraphics”.

some pronounce it with a soft G like giraffe, some with a hard G like gift, and no one really knows what they’re talking about. (For the record, the soft G is correct; it is how the author of the format pronounces it.)

the creator of GIF (Steve Wilhite)always pronounced it “jiff” and would correct those who pronounced it with a hard G. “Choosy developers choose GIF” (spinning off of a historically popular peanut butter commercial).

No crazy lights, costumes, sets, or dancers- just the beautiful nature of the cliffs and caves of Lake Powell, Arizona (Utah border). Britney and crew were helicoptered up there, and most of these cliff shots were taken by helicopter. 

The video was shot by Wayne Isham, whose concept for it was to have Spears on a natural environment. Isham stated the video was filmed completely on location and none of the scenes were shot on green screens. He also remarked on Spears attitude on set, saying, “She went out there and, without a safety cable, just stood there with those cowboy boots on. She was standing on the edge in her cowboy boots, looking hot. We’d be right on the edge, and she had not a blink of fear”. Spears, however, revealed, “the wind started picking up a lot and almost dropped me over… And I was like, ‘OK, gotta go.’”.

If It’s Over | Mariah Carey

Written by Mariah Carey and one of her idols, Carole King, (and produced with C&C Music Factory) this song roughly borrows the chord structure from “Waltz In A”, which is the closing theme from Saturday Night Live. The album version was recorded using SNL’s horn section, and when she performed it on SNL, the SNL horn section played with her band.

[This Year’s] New Year’s Eve Ball weighs exactly 11,875 pounds. That’s the heft of 2,688 crystal triangles bolted onto the geodesic sphere, shining with the intensity of 672 LED modules (each module has 48 Philips Luxeon Rebel LEDs, for a total of 32,256 individual LEDs) reflecting off a sturdy aluminum frame.

Another thing you might not notice are the colors the Ball is capable of emitting. The average tourist won’t notice much of a difference when the Ball changes colors, but it can produce over 16 million colors with billions of unique patterns
