Aston Martin

aston martin - Aston Martin, which is the only genuine James Bond car, has been bought by Harry Yeaggy , an American classic cars collector, who has a private museum in Ohio, for a whopping $4.1 million. Its unique features include ejector seats, machine guns, swiveling license plates and other spy devices. It was initially expected to fetch $5.5 million. The proud owner said he intended to drive it around London that night.

Mr. Yeaggy feels that the fact that this car has never appeared for sale on the market, is its main attraction. He opines that this classic might become the centerpiece of a posh official complex at New York or Moscow. Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, had preferred a Bentley for Bond initially, but film makers opted for an Aston Martin.

This silves Aston Martin is a fusion of Italian design and British engineering, and was driven by Connery in his highly successful films “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball”. Connery era Bond films were preferred by movie buffs to Bond films by George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the present 007. This showpiece car has a rear bulletproof shield which could be activated by az dashboard button and was a triumph for its British maker, though its handmade version was exorbitant.

Internet On Mount Everest

Internet On Mount Everest - Climbers at the top of Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, will now be able to make video calls and surf the internet on their mobile phones, a Nepalese telecom group claims.

Ncell, a subsidiary of Swedish phone giant TeliaSonera, said on Thursday it had set up a high-speed third-generation (3G) phone base station at an altitude of 5200 metres near Gorakshep village in the Everest region.

"Today we made the (world’s) highest video call from Mount Everest base camp successfully. The coverage of the network will reach up to the peak of the Everest," Ncell Nepal chief Pasi Koistinen told reporters in Kathmandu.

The installation will also help tens of thousands of tourists and trekkers who visit the world’s highest mountain every year.

Climbers who reached its 8848-metre peak previously depended on expensive and erratic satellite phone coverage and a voice-only network set up by China Mobile in 2007 on the Chinese side of the mountain.

"This is a great milestone for mobile communications as the 3G high speed internet will bring faster, more affordable telecommunication services from the world’s tallest mountain," said Lars Nyberg, chief executive of TeliaSonera, which owns 80 per cent of Ncell.

The 3G services will be fast enough to make video calls and use the internet, said the company, which also claims the world’s lowest 3G base at 1400 metres below sea level in a mine in Europe.

Despite the installation in Everest, telecom services cover less than one-third of the 28 million people of Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world.

Kanye West To Make Movie

Kanye West To Make Movie - Even though his fifth album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is just weeks away from landing on shelves, Kanye West is still cranking out gratis G.O.O.D. Music joints. Although cutting-edge spitters Kid Cudi and Jay-Z appear on the track, the Chicago MC's newest offering, "The Joy," is a nod to the past, featuring nude '70s vixen Pam Grier on the MP3 art, buttery production courtesy of beat kingpin Pete Rock, vocals from Charlie Wilson and a contribution from soul icon Curtis Mayfield.

"Joy" is centered around Mayfield's vocals from "The Makings of You," a cut from his 1970 debut Curtis. (Yeezy has turned to Mayfield's catalogue in the past, sampling "Move On Up" for West's Late Registration single "Touch The Sky.") West helms the first two verses, using his bars to reflect upon love making, child bearing and getting out of his own way.

"I never understood Planned Parenthood/ 'Cause I never met nobody plan to be a parent in the 'hood," 'Ye spits. "Taking refills of that Plan B pill/ Another shorty that won't make it to the family will."

West drops a few words for critics ready to attack his latest moves, saying, "Though the Jewelry's Egyptian, know the hunger's Ethiopian," and, "This beat deserves Hennessy, a bad bitch and a bag of weed, the Holy Trinity/ In the mirror where I see my only enemy."

Jay-Z follows up and indulges in some '70s nostalgia, spitting lines like, "This is my momma sh--/ I used to hear this through the walls in the 'hood when I was back on my pajama sh-- /Afros and marijuana sticks/ Seeds and the ganja had it popping like the sample that I'm rhyming with."

Kid Cudi keeps a low profile on the cut, adding a simple, positive mantra to the collabo and coolly reciting phrases like, "Keep your hands up" and "Don't let them take your fire."

The song languidly peters out as Rock adlibs, "Pete Rock, Kanye, Okay."

Evil Dead 2

Evil Dead 2 - Many people have been glued to AMC Fearfest this year and tonight one of the horror films shown during the event is Evil Dead 2.

Evil Dead 2 followed up the original quite well and stands on its own as a classic in the horror genre.

The hero 'Ash' (Bruce Campbell) is stranded in a cabin in the woods. In the first one his girlfriend accidentally used a summoning spell to raise the Evil Dead. He is now the lone survivor and he is up against hordes of Evil Dead.

Director Sam Raimi, who would go on to direct Spider-Man movies, and star Bruce Campbell are able to put together a bizarre, funny and scary movie that might be demented in places but is a lot of fun.

Halloween History

Halloween History - Halloween’s history can be traced back to the Celtic festival Samhain, which means “summer’s end.” Samhain celebrates the end of what is considered the “lighter half” of the year (spring and summer) and the beginning of the “darker half” of the year (fall and winter).

Halloween’s history and connection to ghosts, goblins and whatnot stems from the Celtic belief that during Samhain, the separation between our world and the Otherworld (the realm of the dead) became almost non-existant, allowing all sorts of spirits to pass from the Otherworld to our world. Both good and bad spirits were capable of coming to our world, so to ward the evil ones off, people would ware costumes and masks. By doing this, only the good spirits, believed to be of deceased loved ones, could come to the Celts’ homes.

What about the actual word “Halloween?” Halloween is a variant of All Hallows Evening, which, on Oct. 31, is the day before All Hallows Day on Nov. 1. This was shortened to All Hallows Even, and then the “v” was dropped to All Hallows E’en. It’s not a big jump to see how that got to Halloween.

Denise Borino Quinn Dies

Denise Borino Quinn Dies - Borino-Quinn died Wednesday after succumbing to a long battle with liver cancer, according to the Farmer Funeral Home in Roseland. She grew up in the Essex County borough, and lived part of her adult life in Bordentown Township in an apartment complex near Route 130.

The final year for the part-time actress, who also worked as a legal secretary, was a tragic one.

He husband, Luke Quinn Jr., died suddenly of a heart attack in March. Her mother also died a few months earlier, according to attorney Marc Gaffrey, her friend and former boss.

"The world has lost a wonderful, wonderful woman," Gaffney said Saturday. "A lot of people went to her funeral, and that wasn't because she was a TV star. She touched a lot of people in our office."

Borino-Quinn won the role on the popular HBO show unexpectedly after attending an open casting call to support a childhood friend who was auditioning. She has said she was shocked when hired for the recurring role as wife to Tony Soprano's rival Johnny "Sack" Sacramoni.

Although being seen by an international audience, Borino-Quinn kept her day job as a legal secretary in a New Brunswick law office. Gaffrey said he had no idea she was a member of hit show's cast when he hired her six years ago, even though he was a fan of the show.

"I just didn't make the connection," he said. "The Sopranos thing was something that just happened unexpectedly. She was a legal secretary for many years, and very proud of her work."
