Obama, Cameron, Helle Thorning-Schmidt Selfie At Mandela Funeral Was Cool

Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Barack Obama, and David Cameron are right to want to capture the moment. As Prime Minster Cameron put it: “Nelson Mandela played an extraordinary role in his life and in his death in bringing people together. So of course when a member of the Kinnock family asked me for a photograph, I thought it was only polite to say yes.”

There's a lot of wasted hue and cry over the act of making the selfie, rather than asking where can we see it.

How cool is it that World leaders can be able to be human for a moment?   Taken from Zennie62.com: Obama Selfie? Really Helle Thorning-Schmidt Selfie At Mandela Funeral

Star Wars Comes Home for Episode VII.

Last week Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars Episode VII will be filmed in the UK, the place where the majority of the original Star Wars film entitled, 'A New Hope' was filmed back in 1976. The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi were also filmed in London when not on location. The actual studio or studio's have not yet been named but rumours are that Pinewood Studio's is the favourite to land the majority of the filming.
In a statement, Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm president, said: "We've devoted serious time and attention to revisiting the origins of Star Wars as inspiration for our process on the new movie, and I'm thrilled that returning to the UK for production and utilising the incredible talent there can be a part of that."

JJ Abrams has been confirmed as director and Michael Arndt is on board as writer, George Lucas will assume the role of creative consultant even after he sold Lucasfilm to Disney last year.

The new film is still awaiting an official title, although that is expected to be announced in the coming months and stars of the original trilogy are strongly rumoured to be reprising their roles as the film is supposedly set some 30 years after the events of Episode 6 Return of the Jedi.

Those Stars include Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels who himself has appeared in all six of the Star Wars films made so far.

The film is due for release in the summer of 2015.

Fans Flock to Leicester Square for Iron Man 3 Premiere

Thursday the 18th of April and another film premiere hits London's Leicester Square, this time it was the third instalment of Iron Man starring Robert Downey Jnr, who blew kisses to the crowd and was joined by fellow stars of the film, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall and Don Cheadle although Gwyneth Paltrow was not present.

The third instalment of the Marvel Comic adaption could be Downey's last as his contract is up and said he was unsure if he would be back in the role.

He said: "Right now the future is uncertain, but I think it's very important that we end this first Marvel phase in a way that is definitive and has people asking questions."

With Superhero movies going from strength to strength at the box office and with the Avengers 2 in the pipeline fans would love to see Downey Jnr back in the suit at least one more time.

Iron Man 3 opens in the UK on April 25th.

London on Alert after Boston Bombings.

Almost immediately after news broke of the bombings that took place at the Boston marathon yesterday, where 2 people were killed and over 100 injured, London who host two major events of potential interest to terrorists this week where tightening security around the capital.

On Wednesday London will host the State funeral for former Prime Minister, Baroness Thatcher. Security around this event was high even before the events that took place in Boston yesterday and tensions ran high after the announcement of her death last week.
Perhaps more significantly the London Marathon is due to take place this coming Sunday and official's have stated that security will be reviewed ahead of the race.

The London Marathon will have an estimated £10,000 more runners than its Boston counterpart and the route passes some of London most famous Landmarks. The event is also televised live. Sports Minister, Hugh Robertson has confirmed that the London Marathon will go ahead and was said to be 'absolutely confident' that the event could go ahead safely.

A brief statement by Chief Superintendent Julia Pendry, who is in charge of policing Sunday's race said. "A security plan is in place. We will be reviewing our security arrangements in partnership with London Marathon."

An estimated 500,000 spectators are expected to line the 26.2 mile route although that number may dwindle due to what took place in Boston yesterday.

Plebgate Scandal Costs Near £150,000.

The cost of an investigation into whether or not the then Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell allegedly called a police officer who told him he could not depart Downing Street's main gate on his bicycle, a 'pleb' has almost reached a cost of £150,000.

The word 'pleb' used by upper class people who think they are better than the rest of society was allegedly used by Mr Mitchell, (who could also be described as upper class) during the incident in September 2012.

It is not only the cost of this investigation that is astonishing but that fact that the police has assigned 30 officers to the case that probably nobody other than Mr Mitchell even cares about anymore. Detectives have taken 740 statements and have be working the case for over 6 months and still haven't been able to establish if Mr Mitchell who since resigned his position did or did not use the word pleb or swore at police officers at Downing Street's main gate back in September. The investigation is on-going.

No one knows how to waste time, money and resources like the Metropolitan Police.
I hope the investigation includes why Mr Mitchell has that ridiculous basket on the front of his bike.

Julian Lennon: Son Of John Lennon Talks New Song, Steven Tyler

Julian Lennon, the legendary son of The Beatles immortal John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono, has released a new song called “Someday.”

In an exclusive interview with Zennie62 friend Karen A. Brown of StardustBlue Media, Lennon talks about how he came to do the song with Steven Tyler, and the visuals used in the video, which you can see at Zennie62.com here: Julian Lennon Interview: On His New Release “Someday” Feat. Steven Tyler

Controversial Teen Police Commissioner Quits Post.

A few days ago I brought you the story of Paris Brown the newly appointed teen police commissioner given the role by Kent Police in order to gain a youth point of view and to bridge the gap between the local young community and the local police authority.

Unfortunately for Paris Brown and the Kent Police the 17 Year Old's homophobic, sexist, racist, drug promoting Twitter rants were exposed by the Mail On Sunday Newspaper. Miss Brown's employer publically backed the Teen after calls for her to be sacked by local MP'S.

A full 6 days into the job and 2 days after what turned out to be another embarrassing tweet via @YouthPCC that said 'I'm growing up fast and will make this post work' Brown quit her post as the Kent Police force said they were to investigate her messages.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that Miss Brown has now opened a new Twitter account where we can only assume she'll be posting tweets about trying to find a new job. It is not known if Kent Police will be looking for a replacement or will scrap the position altogether, but I'm sure they'll be checking Twitter before another appointment is made.

The Rolling Stones Return to Hyde Park for Summer Gigs.


The Rolling Stones are returning to Hyde Park over forty years since they played in front of around half a million people at the same venue. After announcing the concert last week which sold out in 3 minutes, the ageless rockers have announced a second date of Saturday 13th July and tickets will go on sale this Friday April 12th from 9.am.

Selling the tickets is obviously not a problem but confusion reigned when a plan showed that premium tickets that cost £300 would give the same access as the cheaper ticket holders would get. This has since been corrected and the concert's promoter AEG Live apologised for the error and have now corrected the issue.

Speaking about the decision to play at Hyde Park, guitarist Keith Richards said:

"We all had such a ball last year, and the energy between the band is so good. We can’t wait to get back on that stage where the Stones belong."

The Hyde Park gigs come shortly after the band headline Glastonbury, lets hope that the boys can last the pace.

Newly Appointed Youth Police Commissioner Rants on Twitter.

The Kent police wanted to know what the younger population of Kent thought about them. Instead of send representatives to visit schools in the borough to gather information they employed 17 year old Paris Brown. The problem now is everyone is telling Kent police what they think of her after The Mail on Sunday newspaper exposed some of her recent posts on Twitter.

Using the Twitter handle Paris@viluabelle, which has now been closed, Kent police's new youth police commissioner took to the social networking site to rant about gays, illegal immigrants, taking drugs, getting drunk and how she became anti social, racist and sexist when drunk.

Perhaps Kent police should be more concerned about what they think about the youth in their community rather than what the youth think about them. Either that or they'll be handing out Anti Social Behaviour Orders (ASBO) on themselves.

For the record Kent Crime Commissioner, Ann Barnes who hired Miss Brown says she will not be sacked despite calls from local MP's saying that she should be removed and the post scrapped.

Maybe they should stick to school visits in future.

Summly: Yahoo! $30M Purchase Of Brit Teen's App Tells Hackers To Buggers-Off

Well, Yahoo! threw $30 million at the iPhone app Summly and 17-year-old Nick D’Aloisio and royally pissed off the hacker nation.

To understand the collective anger of hackers, you have to accept that many programmers who work in the area of creating new code for novel uses dream of being the one who’s creation become a popular device that then brings them a large paycheck.

Let’s get that out of the way now: if Summly were merely part of some new AOL-style Yahoo incubator and no large dollar acquisition was involved, no one would be screaming about it. The media coverage of Summly would be a mere fraction of what it is, today, and Nick’s teen age would be the only story hook.

But that’s not the case here because Yahoo threw $30 million at him and two of his five-person team. More at Zennie62.com: Summly: Yahoo! $30M Purchase Pisses Off Hackers

Dave Miliband Leaving Parliament for NY: Milibands are GO!

This video is a hilarious spoof of the old Thunderbirds puppet animation shows, but features MP Dave Miliband and his brother Ed playing in every character's role. A pretty nice job of facial embedding!

Dave Miliband is, in reality, planning to leave his post as MP for a "dream job" in New York, City. He has, as the Mirror UK put it, a number of "lucrative directorships and speaking roles" that have paid him six times his salary as an MP.

Stay tuned.

Daniel Craig Will Be James Bond Again

According to Zennie62.com, Daniel Craig will definitely be back as James Bond.

After some consternation that the star of SkyFall, the highest grossing Bond film in history earning $1.1 billion, may want to call it quits, Mr. Craig will be back as Ian Fleming’s British agent.

In a conference call with investors on March 19th, MGM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Barber said that they were working on a screenplay for the next Bond film, pre-titled “Bond 24.”
