How Will You Look as an Alcoholic?

indexunnamed

A new app created by the website, Rehabs, shows the negative effect that alcoholism can have on your looks.

The app shows that excessive drinking can change the shape of your face.

After you upload a photo of yourself, the app places a “mask” on your face to add skin defects such as broken blood vessels, a bloated face, and a reddened complexion.

A rep for the website said the purpose of the app is to shock users into seeing how their actions can lead to very ugly consequences.

Aaron Lewis Messes Up the National Anthem

Staind singer (and sometimes Country singer) Aaron Lewis sang the National Anthem before Game Five of the World Series yesterday . . . and he botched the lyrics.

In the second line, instead of “What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?” . . . Aaron sang quote, “What so proudly we hailed were so gallantly streaming.” He repeated “were so gallantly streaming” two lines later, where it’s supposed to be.  Whoopsie!

Miranda Lambert is enjoying her “second” career

Miranda Lambert has come a long way since we first saw her on the original season of “Nashville Star”.  She’s gone on to become one of the hottest stars in country music…winning a trophy case full of awards…selling millions of albums…racking up hit after hit.

And now, she’d like you to come stay with her.

About a month ago, Miranda and hubby Blake Shelton opened up “The Ladysmilth”, a bed and breakfast in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.  And while Miranda wasn’t looking for a second career in the hospitalilty industry, she nonetheless may have found her calling.

“I wasn’t planning on doing this in my life,” Lambert said. But after a year of renovations to the 113-year-old building (“We had to take it down to the studs,” she says.), this musical entrepreneur is taking a liking to her new life as an innkeeper.

The inn features eight rooms, each decorated by Miranda in a unique style.  And don’t be surprised if the owner pops by for breakfast if you’re ever there.  “I’m in and out of there quite a bit. People don’t realize it’s me. I look way different than when I’m decked out for awards shows! I went there once, and a couple who was staying there was asking me where I was from, what I did. I just said I was the owner. It later dawned on them”.

When Your Friend Becomes An Internet Sensation

Looking at my Snapchat feed from Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night, I noticed that one fan kept getting covered, a man buying hot dogs and throwing them to others in his section. It was amazing to see. What was even more amazing is that he looked really really familiar to me. I swore it was a friend of mine from my hometown. I meant to text him and ask, but by the next day, I had completely forgotten about it…until today, when that same friend shared this story and confirmed my suspicions. Hot Dog Guy is from Hays, ‘Merica.
