Actress and Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence is our Crush of the Week. At age 20 she was the youngest Academy Award nominee for best actress for her stellar performance in the film Winter’s Bone, and by 22 she took home a statue for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. Born in Louisville Kentucky, Jennifer Lawrence is a 22 year old beauty who is now one of the hottest women in Hollywood (appearance wise and talent wise). We can’t get enough of her blue eyes and can’t wait to see this 5’8″ babe in more films.
UP is a system, wristband and iPhone app, that tracks how you sleep, move and eat so you can monitor your activity throughout an entire day. The UP by Jawbone Wristband tracks your steps, distance, calories burned and time spent active vs. idle. While sleeping the band records how many hours you slept, how long it took you to fall asleep, time spent in light vs. deep sleep and how many times you woke during the night. All the data can be assessed in the free iPhone App and you can also input your food and drink intake to really get the full picture of your daily health.

Just slide the integrated opener out of the rigid frame and crack open your favorite brew.
Porsche just revealed their newest racing car, the 2013 911 RSR. The RSR is built with the body of the newest 911 Carrera model (the 991) and it is incredibly awesome looking. While it maintains the classic 911 curves, the huge rear spoiler and agressive front air-intakes quickly remind you that this is a 460 hp track car. During this racing season, the Porsche 911 RSR will be sporting number 92 and piloted by Porsche works drivers Marc Lieb (Germany) and Richard Lietz (Austria). Go 92!
We’re still a bit partial to the Kill Bill series when it comes to Tarantino films, but there’s no question that Django Unchained was absolutely awesome. Relive all the witty dialogue and shocking violence that was brilliantly portrayed by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson with your copy on Blu-ray/DVD. It also stars the beautiful Kerry Washington, which is also a plus.

If you put your girlfriend’s face on the pickguard, she might not be as upset when you use the rent money to buy one of these sweet sounding (and looking) geeetars.

Hope you enjoy the seductive mystique of this song as much as I do.
