Santa's March for Record - 14,000

More than 14,000 people dressed as Santa Claus marched in the annual Santa Claus parade in Porto, Portugal, Dec. 14. The group aimed to break a Guinness World Record with the feat, and to raise money for charity. The crowd was singing and dancing from the afternoon until well after dark. Although the weather was against them (cold and drizziling) 14,200 showed up to march out of 17,400, everyone involved donating 1 euro to needy children. According to the Guinness World Records web site (http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com), the previous world record for the largest gathering of Santas was set last year in Derry City, Northern Ireland, where a total of 12,965 people took part dressed up as Santa or Santa's helpers.

Festive NY Giants Fan Kicked Out of Game

Sondra Fortunato, the New York Giants' most iconic fan, was kicked out of the Giants' December 7th game versus Philadelphia. She was asked to leave because she brought signs and a bag to the game. 

However, her skimpy wardrobe may also have played a role in her ejection from the game.  She showed up in a santa costume, complete with fishnet stockings, a bathing suit bottom and high heeled boots! 

Whether Sondra was asked to leave the game because of her costume choice or what she brought to the game, out-do her this Christmas with your own Sexy Santa Costume from Annie's Costumes.

Dr. Acula Dies at 92

Forrest J. Ackerman, writer-editor who coined the term "Sci-Fi," died Saturday at age 92.

He began his career by editing the first movie monster magazine: Famous Monsters of Filmland, referring to himself as "Dr. Acula." Ackerman also created and wrote the stories of Vampirella and Jeanie of Questar. 

Above all, Ackerman loved collecting horror memorabilia. He collected some 300,000 items in his lifetime, including books, movie stills, posters, props and masks from Sci-Fi, horror and fantasy films.

In 1954, Ackerman coined the term "Sci-Fi" after hearing "hi-fi" mentioned on the radio. 

A documentary of Ackerman's life, made by Forrest's friend, John Sasser, is underway.

Hugh Jackman Wears His Movie Costumes for Sex!

WOW! What a headline! I came across this article this week and not sure if it falls under TMI or HOT!

Evidently, Hugh Jackman's wife likes for him to bring a little piece of his work home with him!

Excerpt from the article:

The 'Australia' actor - who has two adopted children with wife Deborra-Lee Furness - often keeps his outfits from films including 'X-Men', when he played sexy mutant Wolverine

, to impress in the bedroom .

Hugh - who has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine - said: "It's easy with my wife. She loves the idea of me coming home in costume because it makes her feel like she's having an affair in a good way.

"When we met, I was cast as a prisoner with tattoos and she'd say, 'Don't take your tattoos off tonight!' and I'd be like, 'All right!' But what works best with her is the stockbroker look."

Looks like Hugh Jackman will have a new Wolverine costume to take home and play with soon. X-Men Origins: Wolverine premiers May 1, 2009 and will be the start of a costume filled summer at the movies, with Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to follow, just to name a few!

Twilight: Breaking all Kinds of Vampire Rules

Twilight is the first motion picture installment of Stephanie Meyer's vampire series.

The strange thing is, these vampires don't have fangs. In fact, not a single fang is shown in the entire movie.

Even stranger is the fact that the vampires in the movie have a giant cross in their house.

With all that, it doesn't even seem wrong that these vampires can go outside during the day - Stephanie Meyer has effectively redefined what it means to be a vampire.

Check out the Trailer:
