Dania Ramirez stops by the AXE Lounge
A friend of mine has a theory which states that one out of every one hundred Dominican women will somehow have picture perfect genetics. Dania Ramirez is firmly within that 99th percentile, and she’s all over the place since landing a role opposite Turtle in Entourage (she had a pretty nice resume before Entourage, too).
Dania dropped by the AXE Lounge this Saturday night and talked a bit about her character’s development over the course of the current Entourage season. She also talked about her role in the upcoming ‘Premium Rush’ with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and offered some quick tips for guys looking to catch a woman’s eye. You can catch the video after the break.

Ronaldo’s smoking girlfriend, model Irina Shayk, poses for GQ
To say that Christiano Ronaldo leads a charmed life would be a gross understatement. He’s at the top of the most popular sport in the world, making millions upon millions of dollars both as a player and a global icon, and at the end of the day, he comes home to this. Irina Shayk – one of the hottest swimsuit models to ever grace the pages of Sports Illustrated.
Miss Shayk was kind enough to step in front of the camera over at GQ, and damn if she didn’t deliver. If you thought nothing could top her latest bikini spread, close your door, turn down the lights, and go take a look at the slideshow.
Bullz-Eye-Witness Report: Snoop Dogg destroyin’ the evidence for “Mafia Wars: Las Vegas”
Say, did you hear about Snoop Dogg blowing up an armored car in the middle of the Nevada desert as part of a publicity stunt to celebrate the 10 millionth visitor to Zynga’s latest “Mafia Wars” expansion, “Mafia Wars: Las Vegas”?
Maybe you did. Maybe you even watched it happen at MafiaWars.com, since the event was streamed live…and if you did watch it live, then you no doubt noticed that, despite the designated start time having been established as 6 PM PST, it didn’t actually go down ’til a little bit later.
Yeah, I noticed it, too. Except I noticed it live from the Nevada desert, since I was standing right there when the whole thing went down. And it wasn’t much of a surprise to me, since I’d been watching the events unfold for the previous two hours.
First, for those of you who didn’t see it happen, here’s a video of the event:
And, now, here’s the story of what happened and how I came to be there.

Snoop + Mafia Wars: Las Vegas + dynamite = AWE$OME
Last month, we observed, “Everybody loves Snoop Dogg…or if they don’t love him, they at least know who he is.” An approximation of the phrase could very well be said of the online game phenomenon known as Mafia Wars: even if you don’t actually play it, you’re almost certainly aware of it. (You can play the game on several mediums, but for my part, I’m well familiar with the cry of my non-playing friends who bemoan the constant barrage of Wars-related posts on Facebook.) Tonight, the man who brought gin and juice to the masses is joining forces with the latest game in the franchise, “Mafia Wars: Las Vegas,” to – for lack of a more cultured phrase – blow shit up.
Snoop Dogg will blow up a four-ton armored truck to commemorate the 10 millionth visitor to “Mafia Wars: Las Vegas”, which debuted on July 21. That’s right: it was launched less than a month ago, and it’s already hitting the 10-million-visitor mark. That’s how popular this game is. The massive explosion is taking place in the Las Vegas desert, but it’ll be streamed live via the official Mafia Wars website, so everyone can watch Snoop Dogg light it up.
A handful of people, however, will be there in person to watch the event go down…and – ahem – yours truly will be one of them.
Stay tuned to your friendly neighborhood Bullz-Eye Blog for the post-event wrap-up, wherein I’ll offer my firsthand experience of the event and, if everything goes according to plan, the details on my few minutes one on one with Mr. Dogg.
Ah, I can smell the secondhand smoke already…
Utz does pretzels right
They don’t make pretzels like they used to. Pretzels you buy in the store either don’t have enough salt, are too bland or buttery or boring. And don’t get me started on soft pretzels, which Auntie Anne’s has pretty much ruined for all of America. However, there is hope, and there are still awesome pretzels sold in bags and in tubs. And the best of these is Utz brand pretzels. I found these in stores occasionally when living in New York, but hadn’t seen them since moving away from there years ago. But I found Utz products recently online, and bought a few different types of pretzels. Not only do they taste exactly as I remember, but they seem to be even better.
I bought a bag each of the rings, small logs and regular logs. Utz pretzels have very few ingredients so they taste fresh and not processed. And they don’t have that fake shine that most store-brought pretzels have. They are crunchy, generously salted, and just plain delicious. In fact, after going through the three bags rather quickly, I ordered two more large tubs of Utz pretzel rods. Yum.
Oh, and for good measure I also tried the 7-grain pretzels Utz carries. Amazingly, these are also delicious. With seven whole grains, meaning lots of healthy fiber, these are snacks you can feel good about eating and feeding your kids. It can’t be easy to make something healthy taste this good, but Utz delivers, again.
More Utz snack reviews coming soon……
