What’s the first thing you think of when you look at that picture?
I know! Me, too! Eva — don’t you know how much pollution motorcycles emit? Motorcycles churn out three times as much pollution as a car! Small gas engines get dirtier the more efficiently they run. Right now, the Nigerian city of Kano is absolutely choking on the smoke from all the motorcycles and mopeds.
Oh, look at this! That’s more like it…
Such a nicer set of wheels.

Wow, we didn’t think anyone did anything but watch the Superbowl all weekend. Didn’t your pre-gaming start on Friday? Ours did. Our post-gaming is going pretty strong now, too. Anyone got an aspirin?
Turns out, though, that a lot of kids skipped the Patriots v. Giants to see Hannah Montana v. The World, and, uh… Hannah won. Her new movie, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, set a record for a Superbowl Weekend premier, raking in $30 Million. Hey Miley, can we be BFF’s?
As long as Billy Ray Cyrus’s favorie daughter is taking her achey-brakey heart worldwide and making all the young ladies crazy for striped leggings, she might as well encourage them to buy hose sustainably. For example, Top Shop has tights in Organic Cotton now. Stay close, maybe they’ll add Organic Leg Warmers next? Hannah fans can hope!

Did you see How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days? We didn’t even see the movie poster till a few minutes ago, but apparently it’s older and wizened leads, Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson, are back with an older and wizened film, about marriage this time, called Fool’s Gold. In this one, the couple resolves to… oh, you don’t care any more than we do, right?
That’s why we’re relatively sure that more people are going to see these photos of model, Camilla Alves, who attended the movie’s premiere with her boyfriend, McConaughey, while strong winds blew her very wispy dress up her very long legs. And you don’t even have to pay to see it!
People are paying for wind, though. Wind is becoming big, big business. An Irish Company that has been starting wind farms in the U.S. and around Europe since 2002 sold them all off to two separate companies for more than $4 Billion. Ain’t no shame in a bit of profit for doing right. –BradyDale
The Director’s Guild of America is likely to sign a contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers of America soon. The Directors’s decision, while a presumably smaller group than the writers, may influence the Writers’ Guild to cut a deal shortly. Details about the new contract are sketch, but Director’s Guild spokesmen say that they did successfully get the studios to recognize their rights to revenue from Internet sales.
Of course, management is saying it is a good deal, too, so who knows? Maybe the directors caved in and sold out? All we know is this: forests (and lumber) are disappearing. There must be a forest’s worth of wood out there just to make the lumber that they are stapling their placards, too. We love a good strike as much as the next entertainment web-site, but, even if they used certified lumber, there has to be a better use for that wood than propping up signs.

Zac Efron was rushed to the hospital yesterday for an emergency appendectomy, right after Disney announced we’d be treated to a High School Musical 3. Our main concern is the effect on Beanstockd’s worldwide servers when his fans start trying to outpost each other with their testimonials of concern on Efron bulletin boards.
“OMG! Zac’s in the hospital with appendicitis!”
“When I had appendicitis, I got ice cream!”
“Ice cream is for tonsils. Duh.”
Imagine this conversation three million times over and over and you’ve got a recipe for downing all internet service from LA to Chicago. Yes, the pretty boy star has that kind of power.
That’s why the U.S. government plans to invest billions of dollars to build a star in a box. It is a fusion-reactor called a Compact Stellarator. A star we can suck power out of. 1,000 Megawatts of power! Emissions free!
No word yet on its effect on Tweenies.

The Hills Star Heidi Montag is having trouble enjoying her vacation in Mexico with Spencer Pratt as much as she otherwise would have because she can never remember which direction her butt goes in lounge chairs.
Heidi had a busy 2007. She got a boob job and that got her in Maxim. She’s a clothing designer now and no one is un-syncing their Ipods from their computers in anticipation of her studio album due out next month. We’re worn out just thinking about it all. Livin’ the dream! So she deserves a little R&R.
We hope stars with the means will think about making their vacations green. For example, in Mexico, you can go to The Tides Riviera Maya, a beautiful resort that’s also ecological. You can’t even drive a car on the grounds or use your cell phone! However, we could not find a policy about Montag’s silicone. –BradyDale

Will Ferrell has parodied George Bush’s stance on Global Warming in this awesome short you can find on YouTube. You know, maybe we’re just taller than we used to be, but whenever we talk about snow here at Beanstockd HQ, we talk about how it used to come earlier and get deeper in our oldest memories.
We’re not the only ones freaking out about it. In fact, the Snowmen in Wisconsin are getting organized. With less and less snow, they’re losing population and habitat. If you care about the plight of the snowpeople, you can join their Facebook Group, sponsored by The League of Conservation Voters. –BradyDale

Note the cunning eyes — Milana Dravnel is angling for the attention she deserves. After all, if you can wheedle a champion boxer into fishnets, we say you deserve to get credit for it. She’s suing De La Hoya for $100 Million for “fraud, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress.”And that’s just for making her look at him in drag.
Dravnel, a stripper from Russia, is fighting hard to get the case to court. Why? We doubt it’s really about the money. More headlines maybe? Are we cynical? She’s made it clear that she wants to make the move from dancing to modeling. Could some attention help?
OK, we are cynical. Guilty!
But, look, we don’t have any problem with strippers. In fact, strippers have been making good for years now. For example, there’s lots of ecological alternatives out there when you need to strip paint. In fact, believe it or not, they’ve even made a good stripper out of Soy. Seriously, a paint-stripper from soy beans. They’ll have a soy-based laptop next. –BradyDale

Other sites from the year end show on ABC: Carrie Underwood babbling, Fergie’s lightning quick changes and Ryan Secrest circling patiently above Clark’s botox-propped corpse. We also got a good look at the Jonas Brothers. We think someone might have told them that it was a masquerade party. That’s the only way we can explain the top hats they doffed to stand around in looking amiable while Secrest talked about confetti.
Robo-Clark was not the only hot new technology on display on NYE, either. The Times Square Alliance, hosts of the annual ball-dropping above Manhattan, bought a new ball this year, with lights made from ultra-efficient LEDs. It ran on no more electricity than 16 toasters, burns way brighter than the old ball and does it with 16 million colors to choose from. That’s right, this new eco-ball can give you any shade of green you want. –BradyDale
Is the sentencing over so soon? Oh no! We were just getting started! Wait, can’t someone do something else funny to get arrested? I don’t think any hotel rooms have been smashed up this year. How about that? Or maybe someone could kick it old school and shoot her car when your wife tries to leave you?
MTV has put out a list of celebrity arrests for the year, and we’re getting a little choked up looking back. We remember you fondly, oh-DUIs, oh-Waffle-House-beatdowns. Lil Wayne: weren’t you sort of cute before you came out as a complete nutjob? And poor Lindsay Lohan stuck at #6. She can’t even perform well on a disaster list. Tragic.
2007 is the year of the celeb trainwreck, but also they year of the oil spill; over the past year oil spills have occurred in San Francisco, in Russia’s Black Sea and the latest one in South Korea that contaminated 103 miles of beaches. Yo, Big Oil, clean up your act! Britney Spears is disaster enough to handle.
