Mark Zuckerberg has a stalker with a sick mom

Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against a man named Pradeep Manukonda, after he received some creepy letters and Facebook messages from Manukonda saying that he “had to talk” to Zuckerberg about a matter of utmost urgency.  The messages wouldn’t stop, and Zuckerberg got the restraining order after telling the judge he was fearful for his safety.

Now, however, it’s coming out that the stalker may have had a pure motive – according to Manukonda, he recognizes that his behavior was obnoxious and desperate, but says it’s only because his mother is dying and no one in the family can afford to pay for her medical care.  He’s hoping that Zuckerberg will have a heart and lend him the money – he says he’s not looking for a handout.  No response form Zuckerberg yet.

Danny Bonaduce speaks out against “digital deaths”

The recent “digital death” celebrity publicity stunt for the Keep a Child Alive foundation is not really progressing as well as the participating stars had hoped, and some are even speaking out against what is being referred to as “emotional blackmail” from the celebrities who are withholding Twitter and Facebook updates until the $1 million donation mark is reached.

Actor-turned-radio-host Danny Bonaduce voiced his annoyance on his morning radio show, stating that it was ridiculous to start a fight against a disease by quitting something, and he feels that celebrities holding silence over their fans’ heads was an abuse of power.  Bonaduce suggested that a better idea might be for the celebrities to use social media to remind their followers to donate.  In the first day of the “event” the donations didn’t even reach $100,000 – apparently people aren’t in such a great hurry to have these egomaniacs back online.

Celebrities try to blackmail us into donating money

Here’s another bizarre publicity stunt set to draw attention to a good cause – Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, and Justin Timberlake are going to cease all Twitter and Facebook activity starting Wednesday, as a “digital death” gimmick to promote World AIDS Day.

The plan is that they will not return to their online lives until a million dollars has been raised for Keep a Child Alive.  The campaign features images of the stars posing as dead people in coffins, in a cheesy attempt to lend a visual element to the digital death theme.  I might be more inclined to donate if they promised to stop doing these cheap stunts, or if donating would keep them off the internet for longer intervals.

Bishop in hot water over royal-bashing

London bishop Pete Broadbent is getting a lot of heavy criticism over some comments he made on Facebook about the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. He described the hoopla surrounding the wedding as “nauseating,” and went on to say that he gave the marriage seven years at best.

As if that weren’t enough, he went on to say that the royal family was full of “broken marriages and philanderers,” and generally expressed distaste for their celebrity.  Just to put the icing on the cake, Broadbent then targeted Prince Charles and Princess Diana, calling them “Big Ears and the Porcelain Doll.”  Was “Porcelain Doll” meant to be an insult?  Whatever the case, the bishop has now apologized for his comments, saying that he realizes he shouldn’t have said those things on the internet.  You think?

If you date Taylor Swift, she might write a song about you

Taylor Swift has been in the news in recent days for her concept album, Speak Now, which is a series of songs about people in her life.  In recent interviews she has said that she doesn’t have any reservations about putting real events and real people into her songs, and in fact that’s just the way she processes both pain and joy.

Swift went on to say that since it was no secret after three albums that this is what she does, any man who dates her has to understand that he is fair game for song fodder.  I guess it’s no worse than people who talk about their private lives on Facebook, and at least Swift leaves names out when she does it.

The Social Network stuns the box office

What an amazing first weekend for David Fincher‘s new film, The Social Network.  The movie brought in $23 million in its first two days, which is not record-breaking by any means, but it’s pretty good considering that most people squinted and said “really?” when they heard there was going to be a movie about the creation of Facebook.  The movie is full of solid performances from all the main actors, and the story is certainly engaging, even though the real-life counterparts of the characters say that many liberties were taken with the script (meh, it’s a dramatization, what do you want?).  Early buzz is that there are going to be multiple Oscar nominations, but of course we still have another three months for something to come along and knock The Social Network off its pedestal.

Lindsay Lohan Is Pissed At Facebook

Lindsay Lohan just HAS to blog. However, Facebook apparently disabled her account, so LiLo took her rants to her MySpace instead. Sadly, she hasn’t improved her writing skills!

Upset with Facebook

Long time since i have had a reason to write a blog.. I almost forget. hehe. okay, so i love myspace, because it is secure, and the people at myspace don’t disable your account because they think that you are a fake you. having said that brings me to the subject of my blog… facebook allows a lot of posers, i thought maybe they would figure out that the posers of me, (and i am sure others on facebook) were in fact posers by looking into their accounts, or sending emails to the people that they believed to be “posers” which ask questions. what those questions may be.. i don’t know. which is why i don’t run an interactive web site. on that note, this is what happened to me earlier today… i signed onto facebook with my new password because someone keeps hacking into my account, and when i typed my password and “log in” name in, a red sentence came up saying..

Account Disabled

wow! i was in shock. i clicked on the link that they told me to click on and then to another link that said: my account may of been disabled by mistake. once i got to that it gave a note saying why it was disabled which stated the note saying that it was disabled because they believe that i was a fake of myself. genius. here i am loving facebook (as well as myspace-hehe) but going on facebook to talk to some of my friends and they are thinking that I AM THE “FAKE” OF MYSELF!!! hahahahahaha.. at first i laughed, and then i got angry. angry because, with ALL the people that PRETEND to be me on facebook, they decide to say I AM THE FAKE- of myself. all i can think is, WHO is running this site? and how can they just “disable” my account without first, sending me a warning notice, or AT LEAST asking me some account verification questions. here they are re-designing the look on the site when they should be setting up a more secure way of allowing people to set up an account. i wasn’t even under my name, i had a fake name on my account because, obviously i didn’t want everyone on facebook to know it was me.

maybe i am just venting, but i am also writing this blog in hopes that the people at facebook will un-disable my account and allow me to sign in the EXACT same way it was, same friends, same emails, same “pets” and so on..

phew! i’m glad i got that off my chest, i needed to let it out somewhere, and myspace has always been the best place for me to do it, especially if i hope for something to change….

love love love ,
Lindsay Dee

Take that, posers. Fake Lindsays sometimes aren’t fake. You can spot the real deal by the 5th grade writing ability…so don’t be fooled by some coherent counterfeit!
