If you think that you’re already too old for ghost stories then you might want to hold that thought until after you’ve listened to Lex Wahl’s podcast called Anything Ghost Show, which is an audio show where people get to share their own personal experiences of the paranormal.
The combination of Lex’s voice and the eerie background music complement each other so perfectly! I don’t want to exaggerate but his presentation is just top-notch. It’s the way he delivers the story, the cadence of his reading, the sound effects -- all of the factors involved blend together very well like an orchestra; each piece falls exactly into place. To sum it all up, the end result is one very effective storytelling session. Some listeners even admit getting spooked as they listen to his show even with the lights on or in broad daylight!
So anyway, you still feeling confident that you won’t get the jitters by listening to this podcast? All right, how about we turn things up a notch and dare you to listen to it at night, using headphones, and with the lights out? How about it?
Do not underestimate your own imagination – all it takes is a little audio or visual cue to trigger your fear and the next thing you know is that you'll keep looking over your shoulder.
When Iron Man 2 came out, everybody walked out of the theater happy after watching. Okay, most of them. Now though it’s true that it didn’t please everybody, the ones who criticized it brought up some pretty good points. Well, in this third installment, those who haven’t seen it yet can be rest assured that writer/director Shane Black has done well to avoid making the same mistakes.
Iron Man 3 feels much more of a comic book than its two predecessors as there are lots of comic book references made throughout the whole film, which will likely make a lot of readers of the title out there very happy and satisfied. Another thing that’s great about it is that this one doesn’t lead you on into thinking that there’s going to be another potential follow-up. It’s as if it’s almost safe to say that it is pretty much a standalone production, which I think is a good thing. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I there won’t be another one nor that I wish there wouldn’t.
Just like the previous ones, there’s a perfect balance between the comedic elements and the serious tone of the film, although I’m pretty sure that there’ll be people out there who’d beg to differ and say that the humorous scenes were too frequent.
To sum it up, we hardly get to find movie sequels that manage to outdo the first, which makes Iron Man 3 quite a bit of a rare gem. So I strongly suggest you go out and see it as soon as you can. You won’t regret it. Again, personally, I don’t think that seeing this in 3D is worth the price so I suggest you go with the regular format instead.
It has only been less than a year since Miley Cyrus was quoted by Elle UK magazine that she didn’t want to be a glorified model who’ll just take her clothes off in order to be sexy. She said, “A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off because you naturally have star power, […] you have to find a way that’s not just showing your [breasts]. I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes – or lack of clothes.”

And yet here she is now, having just finished a photo shoot with Mario Testino for V magazine, in which would probably be the raciest one she has ever done. The set features pictures of her cupping her bare breast, removing her trousers and flashing part of her bottom.

Miley is currently preparing for the release of her latest album, where she collaborated with Pharell Williams.
Denise Richards has had received quite a bit of criticism lately regarding her health – or rather her built, to be precise – after she was spotted picking up her daughters from gym class on Tuesday (April 23) in Calabasas, California looking all so skinny. The 42-year-old mother of three told Extra during Saturday’s Radio Disney Music Awards that she’s fine and perfectly healthy.

“I don’t know why lately I’ve been getting so much flack for it… I have a very healthy lifestyle and I’m busy. I have a daughter who’s almost 2 that I carry all the time,” Richards said. “She’s just under 30 pounds. I’m such an advocate for health and fitness… in moderation. We eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here,” she added.

Critics have said that Richards looks “painfully thin” and “extra skinny” when she indicated that she’s rather healthy and even despite a source telling E! News that “Everything is fine with Denise. Nothing is wrong. Denise is taking care of her daughters, her dog and filming her new show. Look at her arms. She is ripped. She carries baby Eloise everywhere. She has always lived a healthy lifestyle, she eats healthy and has done Pilates for years.”
If you’re one of those who’s just had enough of all the crap that reality TV has to offer then you might just like today’s featured podcast. Watch What Crappens is show that makes fun of all the so-called drama that happens in the latest episodes of some of reality TV programs, which in this case is some of the shows featured in the Bravo network such as Real Housewives and Top Chef.
The show’s hosted by Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com), Matt Whitfield (Yahoo!), and Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com) and it provides us with some great entertainment as it does its job of poking fun at everything that each of the featured TV shows stand for with its snarky sense of humor and whatnot.
One doesn’t have to dislike the programs that they feature to like this podcast. In fact, even if you’re a fan of any of those shows they talk about, you’ll still going to love listening to WWC.
Aside from the link above, you can also listen to their episodes in their SoundCloud page.
Check out one of their recent episodes below, Eps. 71: Bullying, Screeching and Deadbeating:
Are you running out of bedtime stories to tell your kids at night? Don’t fret. D Michael Rue’s podcast has got your back! Titled Biddy Bedtime Stories, this audio show features a character named Biddy, a duck who always has a little story he likes to share every night to kids. But before you start thinking that this’ll replace your typical fairytales, I’m gonna have to tell you that Biddy’s stories aren’t like those found in the usual children’s story books.
Biddy, together with his friends Douglas the lumberjack, Bruin the bear, and a few others talk about little everyday things (ex. school, pineapples, slippers, etc.) and events in their life (ex. birthdays, 4 seasons, camping, etc.) in each episode. The stories are fun to listen to because they are rich in jokes and songs.
But again, there’s a chance that Biddy’s stories might not be your child’s cup of tea (or milk), so give it a few test runs first. Another thing that might push you away from this is its length: it only runs to 10 minutes tops – no more – and even doesn’t happen quite often. In other words, you may have to run two to three episodes a night to get your child to sleep.
This podcast that I’m about to tell you about right now actually reminded me of the couple of podcasts that I previously featured (The Moth, Funny Cuz), in that it’s random, it’s recorded on a stage in front of a live audience, and it too involves random people who are totally strangers to each other. It’s called Ask Roulette, and the difference between this one from the other two is that this time around, people ask questions rather than telling a story.
The show goes like this: on the stage are two chairs, separated by a divider. People from the audience are then randomly called in one at a time to sit on the chairs. The first person then gets to ask the next person any question he/she wants, and that alone already opens up lots of possibilities ranging from serious to very silly. Whichever it is, rest assured that it’s going to be very interesting.
Once the question is answered, the first person then steps down and then another person is called. This time, the one who answered the question earlier gets to ask the next person a question of their own, and then the process just repeats itself. If you’re called, you don’t get to see the person who you’re posing your question to, and it is this anonymity that’s the heart of the experience.
If you like this kind of random form of entertainment that involves real people – and by that I mean people you normally see on the streets who aren’t entertainers by profession – then you’ll enjoy listening to this podcast.

Does anyone here still remember the ‘Unflattering Beyonce’ Photoshop meme that just went viral after the opening of Super Bowl XLVII on February 3? Well, better have your memories refreshed because reports have come in stating that the pop/R&B diva has just introduced some preventive measures that such an incident never happens again during her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

According to a report by The Guardian on Wednesday (April 24), the 31-year-old superstar has banned professional and independent photographers from her current world tour and that “no photo credentials” have been granted for its duration. All official photos of the concert event are now going to be taken only by hired photographer, Frank Micelotta. Hence any news outlet that wants to acquire and use any official images from the said tour will have to get them from him via a link to a website that features shots taken from Amsterdam, Zagreb, Belgrade, and Bratislava.

If the news outlets don’t want to get their photos from Micelotta, they can however, as an alternative, opt for the non-official photos taken by the crowd using their mobile phones. In fact, some of them have already been making rounds across the internet.
Beyonce’s management currently has only released just two photos from Monday’s first show.
Emma Watson steals more than just the spotlight in this latest film by Sofia Coppola titled ‘The Bling Ring’ that is based on a series of real events about a group of teenage girls who went out on a crime spree by breaking into various high profile celebrities’ homes, stealing their stuff and living out their glamorous Hollywood lifestyles; their list of victims includes the likes of Paris Hitlon, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson, among others.

In the trailer, Watson, who plays Nicki, devises a bold and sinister plan along with Marc, played by Israel Broussard, wherein they can be like their favorite stars. Their group is then shown breaking into Paris Hilton’s home while she’s out of town. Things then eventually get a bit out of hand as they all find themselves being pursued by authorities and covered by the news media. (Watch the full trailer below.)
The film also stars Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga, Georgia Rock, Gavin Rossdale, and Leslie Mann. It will have a limited release in the US on June 14 (July 5 in UK) and will also open this year’s Cannes Film Festival which will run through May 15 to 26.
Not every podcast that you come across has a specific purpose. Such is the case with Steve Silverman’s podcast simply and aptly named Useless Information Podcast, which is basically a show about random but real-life stories that you never really needed to know, but your life would be incomplete without.
The content of the podcast itself is indeed very interesting and it can really get you hooked. As soon as Steve starts telling the story it’ll be hard to stop listening. It’s almost as if it’s already wrong to even describe the stories and the trivia he mentions as useless, because you'll find them fascinating.
One caveat about this podcast though is Steve’s delivery: some listeners find his manner of speaking to be quite distracting. The way he tells his stories is like he’s speaking to an audience of grade schoolers. It might do him and his listeners a service if he changes his inflection. Anyway, if you can get past Steve’s delivery then everything ought to be good for you about this podcast.
