Dakota Johnson- upskirt shot showing stocking tops in Elle magazine. Anastasia Steel in Fifty Shades of GreyDakota Johnson Is Up For Anything In Fifty Shades Of Grey – the 24-year old actress and model may be more famous at the moment for who her parents are but that all looks about to change.

Dakota has been talking to Elle magazine about her lead role as Anastasia Steele in the upcoming movie adaptation of mummy-porn hit 50 Shades Of Grey. It seems like she is more than happy with all the attention she will be getting and is also completely comfortable about any scenes she is asked to do as part of the movie.

The secret apparently, according to Dakota anyway, is to have absolutely no shame. In her own words she says she doesn’t have any problem doing anything.

Despite her self-confidence to do anything that is thrown at her it is not the sex scenes that most interested Dakota in the book bit how Anastasia and Christian broke each other down emotionally. She said ‘ I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.’

Dakota comes from a good acting pedigree with both parents having had long careers. Her father Don Johnson is still best known for his role as policeman Sonny Crockett in the 80s cop hit Miami Vice. The show was almost better known for Don Johnson’s fashion choices and Jan Hammer’s distinctive theme music than it was for its plot lines. Read the rest of this entry »

Rita Ora To Star In Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 03 December 2013

Rita Ora - naked with arms across breasts - Fifty Shades Of Grey - Mia GreyRita Ora To Star In Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie – the singer confirmed today that she is to play the part of Mia, Christian Grey’s adopted sister, in the movie adaptation of the huge selling ‘mummy porn’ book.

Rita announced the news direct to her many Twitter followers saying ‘It’s official! I’ve been cast in @FiftyShades of Grey as Christian’s sister Mia. #FiftyShades.’

It will not be the 23-year old’s first step into the world of movies as she played the role of an unnamed racer in Fast and Furious 6 which was released in May of this year. She has 3 other acting credits to her name with parts in tv series 90210 and The Brief as well as a small role in the 2004 comedy/drama Spivs.

Reaction to news of the singer’s casting in the new movie has been a little mixed to say the least. Many fans of the books seem to think she is not right for the part and has only been cast as she is a well-known name amongst a cast that is not exactly stellar. As far as fans of her music go it looks like many of them would prefer her to stick to what it is they think she does best.

Rita is certainly not one to get tied down to just one career choice as she also loves to get involved with the world of fashion too. In fact just last night she was seen at the 2013 British Fashion Awards held at the London Coliseum. She happily posed for photos with her friend Kate Moss and wore a stylish 1940s Hollywood gown for the event. Read the rest of this entry »

As well as the expected range of women’s lingerie the new Fifty Shades range will also include some Christian Grey style boxer shorts for the men.

Top Wikipedia Articles of 2012 – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 28 December 2012

houx crenele - top French Wikipedia article 2012Top Wikipedia Articles – although Wikipedia itself doesn’t release Top 10 lists anymore it does still allow researchers to access its log files and Swedish software engineer Johan Gunnarsson has done all the hard work for us.

Although data is not available for separate countries we can see what are the most popular wiki articles in the different language versions of the site. In the English language version, which is unsurprisingly the biggest, the most searched article this year turns out to be ‘Facebook’ which had over 32m hits. Gunnarsson believes that the reason this article is so popular is either: 1)  users are typing Facebook into an integrated search engine in their browsers intending to go to the site and end up on Wikipedia (which could be a self-reinforcing habit based on search history), or 2) it reflects high-level interest and curiosity about top websites and their history, policies and background.

The second most popular article was ‘Wiki’ with over 29m people looking at it, presumably to work out the meaning of the Wikipedia site itself. Curiously though there is a ‘Wikipedia’ article on the site and this came in at 27th place in terms of number of hits.

Other Top 10 Wikipedia articles this year included ”Deaths in 2012′ and movies ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’ The list also has One Direction and Fifty Shades of Grey making the Top 10.

Cul-de-sac from Brookside tv but Germans may be interested!Other language versions of Wikipedia also had Top 10 details released and it seems that the Japanese are keen on actresses in porn movies, the Germans have an unusual preoccupation with cul-de-sacs (sackgasse to them), the Vietnamese are keen to read about sex positions and the world’s French-speaking nations are strangely curious about houx crenele, a type of holly from Asia.

Top 10 Articles on the English-speaking version of Wikipedia during 2012

  1. Facebook
  2. Wiki
  3. Deaths in 2012
  4. One Direction
  5. The Avengers (2012 film)
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey
  7. 2012 Phenomenon
  8. The Dark Knight Rises
  9. Google
  10. The Hunger Games

Admit it, the articles on holly, Japanese porn and cul-de-sacs sound more exciting don’t they!

Husband’s Heart-Shaped Tribute, Bible Swapped for Mummy Porn in Hotel

Heart-Shaped Tribute to Wife – a man in a hot air balloon has spotted a farmer’s touching tribute to his late wife.

When Winston Howes’ wife died suddenly 17 years ago, he immediately began planning a remarkable tribute to their 33 years of marriage. The farmer, who is now 70-years old, began planting young trees in a six-acre field on his property but kept a perfect, heart-shaped meadow in the center that pointed toward their childhood home in Wotton Hill.

The meadow, which is surrounded by thousands of oak trees, is hidden from ground-level view, but Howes’ design was spotted when a hot air balloon travelled over the farm and a passenger took some photos of the beautiful memorial.

Howes said he regularly goes into the meadow just to sit and think, and added, “It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years.”

There are several thousand trees in Howes’ heart-shaped tribute to his wife. He plants daffodils in the centre of the heart which come out in the spring and says this is a wonderful sight.

He has seen the acre sized tribute to his wife from above when a friend flew him over the field 5 years ago.

You can look at the tribute from above yourself if you flying or ballooning near Wickwar in South Gloucestershire where Mr Howes 112 acre is located.

We can’t think of a better tribute from a husband to his late wife since Shah Jahan built The Taj Mahal in Agra in lasting memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

Porn again not born again – a hotel in the Lake District has replaced its bedside copies of the bible with copies of mummy porn bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey.

The manager of the Damson Dene Hotel, near Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria, decided that he would spice up the contents of his guests bedside drawers.

Wayne Bartholomew said that he was influenced in his decision by the many comments he had read about the book from friends on Facebook.

He said: “I thought it would be a special treat for our guests to find it in their bedside cabinets, and that includes the men.

The cynical amongst us may well think the bible for porn swap is just a good bit of free publicity for the hotel. Although it gets very good reviews on Trip Advisor it still only ranks as 9th amongst the 20 hotels in the area. The hotel is quoted as having a gym and swimming pool but as yet there is no mention of an s&m dungeon.

Paul McCartney’s 70th Birthday, Fifty Shades of Grey

Paul McCartney’s 70th birthday – the man whose music defined a generation and who is still composing and performing 50 years after he began is 70-years old today.

Together with John Lennon, Paul McCartney wrote many of the classic tunes of popular music. Hits such as Yesterday, Can’t Buy Me Love, Norwegian Wood, Hey Jude, The Long and Winding Road and Lady Madonna are just some of the classics he penned with Lennon during their time writing for The Beatles, universally regarded as the greatest band in the history of pop music.

Even after the band broke up in 1970 he was still writing even more classic tracks such as Maybe I’m Amazed, a love song for wife Linda, from his first solo album the self–titled McCartney. From 1971 he was working back in a band again with Wings producing a number of great albums the most well-known being 1973’s Band on the Run, with its classic cover reminding many of the Beatles own Sgt Pepper with its photo of many national and international celebrities.

He has also written classical and electronic works since The Beatles split up and amongst the very many chart records he holds he is the only artist to have had UK NUmber 1 records as a solo act (Pipes of Peace), a duo (Ebony & Ivory with Stevie Wonder), a trio (Mull of Kintyre), a quartet (The Beatles obviously, pick any of 17 different songs), a quartet (The Beatles with Billy Preston singing Get Back), and as part of a large ensemble (the charity single Let It Be with the Ferry Aid ensemble, released after the Zeebrugge ferry disaster in 1987).

After such an amazing music career it is no surprise that McCartney is one of the wealthiest people in the country and is estimated to have a personal fortune of around half a billion pounds. Despite his huge wealth he and first wife Linda insisted on sending their children to an ordinary state school. This obviously did the no harm as their daughter Stella has gone on to become one of the world’s top fashion designers.

He seems to have found a great deal of happiness in recent years with 3rd wife Nancy Shevell after sadly losing his beloved first wife Linda to cancer in 1998. His current wife seems happy to stay in the background and looks to make him genuinely happy no doubt a massive relief for him after his disastrous second marriage to Heather Mills.

It goes without saying that his music has been a huge influence to many generations of musicians and he still inspires people now. Paul Weller has today released a cover of The Beatles song Birthday as a tribute to McCartney. Proceeds from the song will go to benefit the War Child charity. Weller said he wanted to record the track to celebrate McCartney’s 70th birthday because he has been “an immense and enduring inspiration.”

McCartney was the man chosen to close the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert and it is no surprise that he has also been chosen to play at the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. Although his voice may not be as a strong as it was 50 years ago his bass playing is still top-notch and that man can still write a song. Happy Birthday Sir Paul and many more.

Fifty Shades of Grey – the novel which has been described as being in the “mummy porn” genre is fast becoming a publishing sensation.

The book by first-time author E. L. James looks set to sell over a million copies in paperback by the end of this year. This follows on from the initial high level of sales in its original e-book format.

It appears that the novel has had so many people reading it that it is now ok to be seen with a copy on the train, bus or sitting in the rest room at work.

Fifty Shades of Grey has sold over 550k paperback copies quicker than any other novel since the Nielsen BookScan records began in 1998.

Another reason behind its popularity seems to be the understated jacket which is contrast to the usual covers that were seen on women’s erotic novels before. With the success of the novel has grown a whole host of copycat “mummy porn” with similar tales of dominant older males seducing innocent younger women and all sold in understated covers with muted colours, pastels or greys.

Fifty Shades is the first book in a trilogy by James (real name Erika Mitchell) and the other 2 novels have also been in 2nd and 3rd place in the UK paperback charts for the past 6 weeks.The trilogy revolves around the character Anastasia Steele a virginal college graduate who submits herself to the sadistic fantasies of billionaire Christian Grey.

It is a remarkable success story for the author who initially released the novels herself on the internet as fan fiction based on the Twilight series of novels.

Amongst the records that the paperback has achieved it is only the 4th paperback ever to sell more than 100k copies in a single week, something that most of the Harry Potter series of novels did not achieve (although it could be argued that they were so popular that people didn’t wait for the paperback copy to come out but paid more for the earlier hardback release.

So bear in mind that the middle-aged lady looking so engrossed in her novel on the train this morning was probably not reading Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte but something altogether more racy.
