Benoit The Murderer?

Amazing story, this. According to latest reports, WWE superstar Chris Benoit was responsible for the deaths of his wife and 7-year-old son. Benoit also committed suicide.

As a result, WWE has pulled out all Benoit tributes online as well as offline. But they've already been criticised for airing a special episode of RAW last night in honour of Benoit.

As a fan myself, I'm equally confused. He was a great competitor and the one time that I got to meet the man, he was just plain awesome. And now...

But the question now is, why? Some have speculated that he was high on steroids, and in fact a lot of the stuff was found at his home.

How I wish this was all nothing but a worked storyline..

RIP Benoit

This is for real. WWE superstar Chris Benoit and his family were found dead at their home yesterday.

I repeat, this is for real and not some WWE story angle.

Nicknamed the Rabid Wolverine, Benoit was one of WWE's greatest competitors and a former World Champion.

I had the opportunity to meet the man when he was in KL a few years back and Benoit was just an awesome guy; humble and down-to-earth although he could probably break every bone in the body of someone like me.

The 7 Coolest Things Of The Past 7 Days

1. Tiger Woods gets a baby girl
Hmm, wonder what her first toy would be. I'm guessing a golf club. Meanwhile...
2. Eddie Murphy confirmed the father of Scary Spice’s baby girl
Not sure if the baby’s too thrilled that her father’s a donkey, though…

3. Homer Simpson kidnapped at One Utama, then returned
Brilliant A&P, this.

4. Paris to launch a new "fun and flirty" perfume called Can Can soon
Not sure if it’s inspired by the scents of a prison cell…

5. Ex Thai PM Thaksin buys over EPL club Manchester City
Apparently, the players are already excited about the massage privileges.

6. Erra Fazira to star in English film with ex Blue Lagoon actor
And to think that she once interviewed someone famous of mixed parentage on TV and actually said to him, “Oh, you’re mixed. Mixed with what?”

7. Thierry Henry leaves Arsenal for Barcelona
Which means there’re only 3 teams in the running now for next year’s EPL crown!

Thursday Night Rant: The Cost Of Celebrating

I finally have a problem with the over-commercialism of stuff.

It started of course with the Great Valentine Con where people (and when I say people, I mean men) currently have to take up personal loans just to buy a stalk of rose and a box of Smarties on the day.

The sacred month of Ramadan came next. I mean RM100-per-head buka puasa buffets don’t really go with the whole spirit of going through what the poor experience one month in a year, does it? Really, how many poor people you know break their fast with lamb masala and chocolate-coated strawberries?

Then of course there’s the whole current obsession with over-celebrating family members. It’s great that you appreciate your moms and dads on the designated days, but it’s downright appalling how businesses are jumping on the bandwagon.

So now we’re supposed to show how much we love our parents by giving them water filters, or the latest furniture, or even lingerie.

“Happy Mother’s Day, mom. Here, I bought you a thong.”
“Awww, you shouldn’t have, son. I look awful in these.”

Oh God, say it ain't so!

He’s one of my all-time favourite footballers and I thought I knew everything about ex-Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler after reading this book…
I knew that he’d made tons of money investing in the property market in the UK, but there was nothing in the book about this other interesting side business…

Thursday Night Rant: What D' Hell?

I'm not the first person to make this observation. In an issue of Men's Review some years back, I think it was Kam Raslam who pointed out Malaysia's/Malaysians' obsession with prefixing names - restaurants, products etc - with D' or De.

And here we are now in 2007 and the trend hasn't really gone away. I guess it's a really easy way out. "What shall we name our restaurant?" "Just put D in front lah. No need to think!"

Don't believe me? Just look at these...

MZ 2.0’s The Unsexiest List

So okay, I had earlier promised to come up with MZ 2.0’s own 20 Sexiest Women 2007 list, but before that, allow me to “honour” the 10 that basically does nothing for me,
for one reason or another…

10. Sarah Jessica Parker
‘Cos when I look at her, I think of that 80s series Square Pegs. Even Jimmy Choos can’t help.

9. Reese Witherspoon
The chin, the chin!

8. Cameron Diaz
Too quirky to be sexy for me. Her Princess Fiona gig hasn’t helped either.

7. Gwen Stefani
Again, quirky chicks are not sexy. Entertaining? Yes. Trouser-troubling? Nah…

6. Kate Moss
I’ve seen more stimulating pieces of wood in my lifetime…

5. Stephanie Chai
That incredibly annoying voice is just too much to ignore. Euughhh.

4. Gwenyth Paltrow
Painfully pale. And boring. Yawn.

3. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Getting jiggy with Buffy? Pass...

2. Keira Knightley
Not worth fighting pirates for in my books. Even piranhas will probably spit her out...

1. Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen
‘Cos they’ll always be teeny weeny cuties in my eyes. So please lah, cover up kids! I don’t need to see your bits!

The 7 Coolest Things Of The Past 7 Days

1. PM weds again
Awww, so sweet… but, no holiday meh?

2. Posh named Woman Of The Year by Glamour magazine
Although they might rethink it after she came to the party wearing this…

3. More than 1,680 guitar players jammed Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water simultaneously in Kansas
…which is now a world record. Malaysia, what are you waiting for?!

4. McLaren rookie Lewis Hamilton snatches first ever F1 victory
What a season this is already. Um, Michael who?

5. The MTV Movie Awards
Where all the cool people came out… (without unbrellas, though)

6. 3 hours of Lost on AXN to kick off new season
With more new babes!

7. This week’s coolest quote…
"I talk a lot in the bath. It's easier to talk when you're naked," Angelina Jolie revealed in the July issue of Marie Claire magazine.

The 3 Uncoolest Things

1. Paris released from jail then sent back in
Boo! Hiss!

2. George Michael banned from driving for 2 years and to serve 100 hours of community service for driving under the influence of drugs
They should have a Community Service Hall of Fame by now...

3. Robert Kubica’s horrific accident at the Canadian GP
Good thing the dude only escaped only with a broken leg...

Quote Of The Day

"Saya hanya ada satu perkataan je nak cakap. Sangat manis."

So You Think You Can Dance judge Pat Ibrahim on last night's episode, also proving why he's not an accountant

Thursday Night Rant: Most Wanted???

They've actually gone and changed the name of the whole freakin' thing. Yes, instead of the 100 Sexiest Women In The World, the local FHM has changed the much loved annual list to the 100 Most Wanted Women In The World. Don't really know if I should laugh or cry.

Best part, the mag doesn't even explain the name change which is done through its current issue. I feel betrayed and offended. Can I sue?

Happy 50th Issue NewMan!

The other men’s mag is 50 months old now. And in case you didn’t know, I was there for the rather quick labour and birth of the mag.

Oh yes, when I joined NewMan from FHM in 2003, I had less than 3 weeks to crank out the Premier Issue for launch! But we did it, somehow. Did it in style, in fact.

Not only was the mag out on newsstands right bang on schedule, we also had an awesome party to boot, complete with beautiful peeps and strippers (although the strippers were male. What was up with that, huh?).

In fact, I totally enjoyed the whole 12 months that I was there despite all the constraints in resources. The only thing that stank was dealing with the HQ cuckoos from across the Causeway.

In any case, Happy 50th Issue NewMan!

P.S.: Thanks for the tiny tribute, Mr. Current Editor : )

My 5 Favourite… NewMan Moments

5. Sarah Tan’s wild side
Always sweet or/and sexy, Channel [V] hottie Sarah Tan showed us her wild side for this particular shoot. And it wasn’t any less hotter…

4. Amir Muhammad as Guest Editor
Yes, the elusive auteur met our deadline somehow…

3. Had 3 guys siting down and discussing… BJs
Question Can anyone confirm that women with tongue stud give better blowjobs?
Answer Technically, tongue studs could be really fun, provided they are not jagged. Having said that, I also think that the fascination of blowjobs has to do with the element of danger...

2. The Premier Issue cover shoot
Four stunning VJs in one shoot. Phew! And incidentally, that was also the first time all four Channel [V] VJs – Paula, Cindy, Sarah and Amanda – were in the same room. An historic occasion indeed.

1. Got Fly Guy and Lil Kev to do this…

And this…
(Yeah, that’s me “enjoying” the “massage”)

Waris Jari Hantu: The Premier

Waris Jari Hantu is the latest film by director Shuhaimi Baba and stars, among others, Maya Karin, Kavita Sidhu, Rusdi Ramli, Azean Irdawaty, Zahim Al Bakri, Nanu Baharuddin and Rashid Salleh.

If you’re wondering, “Hey, aren’t those all the people that have appeared in Shuhaimi Baba’s last 47 films?” Well, yeah. But this is an entirely new flick which combines 2 very interesting themes – mysticism and transsexualism.

It’s like Supernatural meets Ugly Betty. With telco sponsorship to boot.

Anyway, enjoy these pics from the premier at Cineleisure in Mutiara Damansara last Friday…

So folks, if you’re into mysticism or/and transsexualism (or Rashid Salleh in drag, whatever turns you on), don’t forget to watch Waris Jari Hantu!
