Different Typs Of Tattoos
This Is Kanji With Stars And A Green Filler
(by Brandon Eardman, Tribal Expressions Tattoo & Body Piercing, 107 Highland rd Pauls Valley OK 73075)

To compare this person’s work with crayon doodling done by retarded children at local Applebee's restaurants would be an insult to the mentally challenged.


Few days ago I received an email from an U. S. Navy recruiter in Jacksonville, Florida, asking me to translate this tattoo of a new recruit for him.

The new recruit claimed that his tattoo means “Daisy” in Chinese.

I tried my best to decipher it, and then I realized the “characters” are just English alphabets that made to mimic the “Chinese-look”. Here are some similar fonts.

Apparently Mr. “Daisy” is not the only person that got fooled by this font type, here are two more:

Happy Friday!

Serenity’s Peach Tin Label

Reader Yin Huang spotted this peach tin label in The Prop Store of London.

The label was made as a prop for the popular science fiction television show Serenity/Firefly. It was never used in the show, which is probably would be a good thing, since some of the printed Chinese characters are mirrored.

"A peach tin label made for the sci-fi adventure Serenity. This prop made label has “Peach Halves” printed on it in English and Chinese and a picture of peaches. It was made to be used on the tins in the store room but was never actually used. The label can be stuck onto a tin by peeling the backing off. It measures 33cm x 15cm (13" x 6")."

just above “Peach Halves” means “[has/have] nutritious food”. Below “Delicious, Sweet Ripe Taste”, the mirrored phrase is supposed to be “小精灵的酒吧”, which means “little goblin’s bar”, and 善服务团 which is a machine translated meaning for “good service group”.

Finally found the Cruise Family Vanity Fair

My wife finally found a copy of Vanity Fair - by accident. She went to buy some curtains and there were a couple of copies. I guess they were in such an unexpected place that nobody thought to go there to look for them.

Anyway, the article and the pictures are great. What a cute little baby and what adoring parents.

The article gives you a real insight into how Tom, Katie, their families and all the kids get along and how they have fun. It is a great article for dispelling rumors and gossip.

Streisand shows what not to wear

You would think that by the age of 64, most women would be self-conscious enough to ensure their choice of evening wear does not expose parts of the body which have...well dropped below standards.

But no one seems to have shared this with legendary entertainer Barbra Streisand as she stepped out in this rather unflattering black dress at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York.

Streisand seemed to forget what a photographer's flash can do to a black dress as she unwittingly revealed she had left the black bra tucked up in her drawer at home.

Lou Diamond Phillips Charged in Domestic Spat

Prosecutors charged actor Lou Diamond Phillips on Thursday with domestic battery in connection with an incident last month involving his live-in girlfriend.

Phillips, best known for his roles in 'La Bamba' and 'Stand and Deliver,' could face a maximum of one year in jail and a $2,000 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor charge. His arraignment was scheduled for Oct. 18.

According to police reports, the 44-year-old actor got into an argument with his girlfriend, and it escalated into a physical fight in the early hours of Aug. 11. His girlfriend, who was not identified in court documents, 'was pushed and dragged across the house resulting in scrapes to both knees,' City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said in a statement.

The woman grabbed a phone, locked herself in a bathroom and dialed 9-1-1, Delgadillo said. Phillips was arrested and held for about 10 hours before being released.


Paris Hilton: what a dumbass

Paris Hilton is set to be embarrassed by a new TV show, which will air police interview tapes with the hotel heiress, in which she admits she's "not that smart."

The star was quizzed over a 2004 robbery at "Girls Gone Wild" producer Joe Francis' Los Angeles home, because Francis claims she told him information about a suspect at a later party.

But Hilton told investigators she was not a reliable witness, because she has a bad memory and isn't clever.

The confession can be heard on an audio tape to be aired on "Dateline NBC."

The sometime singer/actress says, "Like I really ... I don't remember. I'm not like that smart.

"I like forget stuff all the time."

Detectives are heard on the tape trying to coax Hilton to remember what she told Francis, according to Page Six.

Anne Archer

Anne Archer is a real human rights advocate. In addition to her hosting the Freedom Magazine Human Rights Leadership Awards event on Capitol Hill last night, only three weeks ago she was in New York for the Youth for Human Rights International summit at the UN. She hosted a human rights art exhibition in SoHo at that time.

She has also created a new group of her own -- Artists for Human Rights.

Artists have a great deal of influence in this culture and someone who uses that influence for peace and a more decent life for all is a very special person indeed.

Carey Hart sued by business partner

Pro motorcycle rider, husband of P!nk and tattoo parlor owner Carey Hart is being sued by his business partner John Huntington for refusing to pay him what Huntington says he is owed when Hart bought him out of their Vegas tattoo business.

According to the lawsuit, first obtained by WENN, Huntington had a 48% stake in Hart & Huntington, the company that owns and operates the famous Hart & Huntington tattoo parlor in the Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The parlor is featured on the A&E show "Inked" and is one of the most popular attractions in the casino.

Huntington says in court documents he sold his interest in the business that bore his name to Hart in January 2005 and was promised 5% of the profits after the sale. Huntington says Hart did make payments to him, pursuant to their agreement, until July 2005, but alleges that Hart "misrepresented the true amount of sales," and he is therefore entitled to more money.

He also says that since August 2005 he has not received a dime. Furthermore, Huntington claims Hart has failed to hand over the business' financial records which would prove his claims.

Huntington claims the parlor's business has increased dramatically since the company was featured on "Inked" and says he is entitled to damages in excess of $10,000, plus interest.

Hart's lawyer says the lawsuit "absolutely and unequivocally frivolous." He adds they they "look forward to prevailing on the merits in court."

Matt LeBlanc divorce finalized

Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc and his wife of three years, Melissa McKnight, finalized their divorce Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

LeBlanc and McKnight will share joint and legal custody over their 2-year-old daughter, Marina (who has suffered from a brain disorder). He will provide $15,000 a month for child support until she turns 18. LeBlanc will also cover 100 percent of Marina's medical and nanny costs and school tuition.

Both LeBlanc and McKnight waive all claims for spousal support.

The couple separated last January, when LeBlanc, 39, unexpectedly announced he was moving out of the Encino, Calif., home he shared with McKnight, 41, their daughter and McKnight's two children from a previous marriage.

"It was very sudden," McKnight's longtime friend Kelly Phillips told PEOPLE at the time. "She was absolutely blindsided by what transpired."

Citing "irreconcilable differences," LeBlanc filed for divorce in March. "The dissolution is amicable," his publicist Joe Libonati said in a statement. "They remain devoted parents and friends."

Shortly thereafter, PEOPLE reported that LeBlanc had been involved with Joey costar Andrea Anders, 31. Although the new couple are still together, the show didn't fare as well; it was cancelled in May.


My Name is Earl

Actor and Scientologist, Jason Lee's TV series, My Name is Earl, is doing great. It won a couple of Emmy awards this year and was nominated for all sorts of other award. Jason himself received nominations from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and more.

Artists for Human Rights

Anne Archer is a very outspoken human rights advocate and devoted Scientologist.

She recently created a group called Artists for Human Rights to bring artists together with the common cause of raised awareness and education of human rights.

The Scientology religion could be called a human rights religion, because so much of it is based on the concept of helping other attain their rights. It is even part of the Scientology Creed.

Good for Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin Defends Scientology

Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin has spoken out in defense of fellow screen star Tom Cruise's Scientology beliefs, insisting followers of his controversial faith are not nearly as worrying as those who "drove planes into the World Trade Center."

The actor believes that, until Scientologists are found to be responsible for atrocities such as the 9/11 attacks, the media should leave Cruise alone.

He tells, "I think what's been done to Tom is kind of silly. I don't really understand Tom's religious beliefs; nor do I want to. All I know is I don't see people who are disciples of Tom's faith driving planes into the World Trade Center. When Scientologists start crashing planes into the Pentagon, then I think we should sit Tom down and have a grand jury talk to him. In the meantime, let's just leave him alone."

Mel Gibson Walks His Daughter Down the Aisle

The lavish ceremony took place at Holy Family Catholic Church in Agoura Hills, Calif., which Mel built using his own personal fortune. The traditional Catholic ceremony was reportedly performed entirely in Latin.

Willie Nelson busted for pot and mushrooms

Country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson and several fellow musicians were charged with misdemeanor drug possession by Louisiana police after a search of their tour bus on Monday turned up marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms.

State police spokesman Willie Williams said the bus was stopped early on Monday morning about 7 miles east of Lafayette, Louisiana, for a routine commercial inspection, and a state trooper smelled marijuana inside the bus.

State Police seized about 1-1/2 pounds (0.7 kg) of marijuana and two-tenths of a pound (91 grams) of mushrooms from the bus, Williams said.

Nelson and four other passengers on the bus were cited for possession and released, while the driver had his commercial driving privileges suspended in addition to being cited for possession. Nelson faces possible jail time of up to six months and an unspecified fine, police said.

"There was no trouble whatsoever," Williams said. "They were all cooperative."

A spokesman for Nelson said she had no information about the arrest.
