The first earthquake in 30 years and there is still a friggin line at DC Cupcake! You may have seen the wildly popular DC Cupcake reality show on TLC — let’s face it you don’t need much to be popular on that channel. Well after the earthquake in DC the police thought so much of DC Cupcake that they sent over an officer to keep an eye on things.
I wonder how many Dunkin Donuts got the same treatment.
An 5.8 quake hit right outside of the DC metropolitan area about five minutes ago. The quake lasted for about 20 seconds, but didn’t do any damage. The Pentagon and most government buildings were evacuated as a precaution…and because they don’t work after 2:00 anyway. The status of Georgetown Cupcake is still unknown, however, it is thought to have only lost a few cupcakes.
It was a little more nerve racking for some down here considering this is a major target for a terrorist attack. However, everyone is affected in their own way:
Mark’s a little late to the streaming bandwagon. So far Netflix and Apple are the two Titan’s in the streaming world. However, Amazon just threw their hat in the ring and Hulu is making waves with its free content. Facebook recently announced a deal with Miramax to create a Facebook app that would stream Miramax movies directly to Facebook users.
Warner Brothers, Paramount and Universal all have deals with Mark Zuckerberg’s company, but none of this scope.
The Miramax eXperience goes live today, offering 20 titles to users in the United States and 10 to those in the United Kingdom and Turkey. Franceand Germany are next up.
In a statement on the Miramax website, Lang pointed out that “there are over 50 million friends on Facebook that mention a Miramax film in their profile, interact with our Miramax page, or like the fan pages of beloved Miramax titles and talent.”
As for the streaming service itself, the 30-Facebook credit ($3) rental can last up to 30 days, but once someone starts to watch the film there is a 48-hour window to finish it.
Jon Huntsman was the former Ambassador to China and currently running for President – and he’s going to need to pick up the pace because he’s behind. Currently, Obama has a 14 point spread over Huntsman– I just wanted to throw spread in there. But, wait that’s not all, Huntsman also has three two acceptable and at least one gorgeous daughter.
Huntsman and his wife have seven children in all – get off her already. However, the three hotties are his older girls: Mary Anne (b. 1985), Abigail (b. 1986), Elizabeth (b. 1989). The girls have their own joint Twitter @Jon2012girls account in which they occasionally pontificate. The girls are actually fairly amusing, today poking fun at Piers Morgan.
How many men do you think they would have to sleep with to get their Dad elected?
