O.J. Simpson – If I Did It – Torrent – OJ Simpson

If I Did It (torrent) is a canceled book by O. J. Simpson, in which he puts forth a hypothetical description of the murders for which he was acquitted in a 1995 criminal trial, but found financially liable for in a civil trial. The book was announced in mid-November 2006 for a November 30, 2006 release, but intense public criticism led to the cancellation of the book’s publication and a related television interview, both from divisions of News Corporation (HarperCollins/Regan Books and Fox Broadcasting Company, respectively). According to a Newsweek story, all 400,000 printed copies were recalled for destruction, save for one locked away in a vault at News Corp. While the book has been almost impossible to find on the secondary market as a result, one copy did show up on eBay on January 15, 2007, with a starting bid of $1500, and sold for over $65,000 fueling speculation about whether News Corp. was able to destroy all printed copies. James Wolcott of Vanity Fair obtained a “pristine hardcover” of the book for a review published in January 2007.

This is so weird.

Canadian Researchers Map the Human Metabolome

Canadian researchers have completed the world’s first map of the human metabolome. (via)

“If you can think of the genome as the blueprint of life, the metabolome represents the ingredients of life. That includes things like glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, it includes things like vitamins and amino acids, all the things that are in your body that help us function.”

The collection of the list of chemicals and compounds in the human body has been in progress since 2004, and consists of about 2,500 different chemicals. The instructions to produce these chemicals are in the genome.

James Brown Has Passed Away – December 25, 2006

Remember James Brown…

James Brown, circa 1965

James Joseph Brown, Jr. (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006), most commonly known as James Brown (also known as The Godfather of Soul), was an American entertainer recognized as one of the most influential figures in 20th-century popular music.

James Brown died at the age of 73 on December 25, 2006, in Jacksonville, Florida. His girlfriend stated that he went into a diabletic episode.

The Hire was a series of eight short films (each about eight minutes long) produced for the Internet and directed by popular Hollywood and international directors. All starred Clive Owen as “The Driver”. Each film’s story highlighted the performance aspects of various BMW automobiles.

In the video below “The Driver” drag-races the Devil (Gary Oldman), in order to earn James Brown his soul.

Tha Blue Carpet Treatment – Snoop Dogg – Torrent

Tha Blue Carpet Treatment (torrent) will be the 8th solo album released by rapper Snoop Dogg. Producers for the album include The Neptunes. It will be released on November 21, 2006 on Geffen/Star Trak.

The title of the album is related to his Crip affiliation, where Blue is the Crips-colour.

“I took it back to the basics. I’ve been making a lot of pop songs, lot of R&B songs. Songs that may have made my fans feel like I wavered from what I was naturally accustomed to doing. But I’m an entertainer and I entertain people and that’s what I was feeling at the time. But right now, I’m feeling like going right back to the ‘hood.” Pharrell Williams said the rapper’s newest music video ‘Vato’ will not only feature his gangsta side, but will also tackle the issue of racial conflict in Los Angeles and call for racial unity.

Snoop Dogg recently confirmed Dr.Dre had a big input on this album. He produced several tracks and mixed most of the album. One of the tracks that have been confirmed is “Imagine” and features Dr. Dre and is a tribute to Tupac Shakur.

Warren Buffet Gives All His Money To the Gates Foundation

The 2nd richest man in the world, Warren Buffet, is giving his money to the 1st richest man in the world – Bill Gates (and his wife). 

My favourite quotes from the article: 

"Who wouldn't select Tiger Woods to take his place in a high-stakes golf game?

 "…A very rich person should leave his kids enough to do anything but not enough to do nothin."
