Please be advised that Huntington Beach Humane Society is closing down for good on January 8 and ALL PETS MUST BE ADOPTED OR THEY WILL BE EUTHANIZED.

The shelter is not publicizing this very well (probably for fear of the bad publicity) so we need to spread the word. Please share this information with other animal lovers in the hopes that more animals will be adopted from there. If nothing else, maybe your funds can help move them to another humane facility ... like in Irvine or San Clemente. The shelter is 'selling' the dogs for 50% off to move them out.

PLEASE SAVE THE LIFE OF AN ANIMAL.....THERE'S ONLY 4 DAYS LEFT. Even if you can't have one of your own, just forward this on to everyone you know and have them forward it on ... you NEVER know who winds up wanting and getting a pet!

If you feel moved, just get in the car and go down there and look - anybody you know need a belated Xmas gift? You just might find your (4 legged) true love there!!!

Aaron Carter breaks off engagement

Aaron Carter has broken off his engagement to his older brother's ex-girlfriend. The 18-year-old pop singer called off his engagement to 22-year-old actress Kari Ann Peniche just a week after he proposed onstage in Las Vegas, Us Weekly reported Sunday on its Web site.

Peniche is an ex-girlfriend of Carter's 26-year-old brother, Backstreet Boys singer
Nick Carter. She's also a former Miss Teen USA and former Playboy Playmate.

"I got caught up in the moment and proposed," the younger Carter told the magazine. "I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet."

Attempts by The Associated Press to reach a representative for Carter were not immediately successful Monday.

Both brothers will appear in the reality series "House of Carters," which debuts Oct. 2 on the E! network.


Did this engagement last longer than Britney's first marriage? haha.

Aaron Carter To Marry Former Playboy Playmate
Friday September 22, 2006 @ 05:30 PM
By: ChartAttack.com Staff

Aaron Carter, the young singer who rode to fame on the coat-tails of older brother Nick Carter's success with *NSYNC, is now planning to marry his sibling's ex-girlfriend, Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche.

Carter, 18, proposed to the 22-year-old Peniche on stage during a show that was part of the Playboy Comedy Tour at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Peniche told People magazine that the proposal caught her off guard, but she was happy that it happened.

"I'm very excited about it. Aaron is the most genuine person I know. He's kind, loving, and I love him so much."

Carter had originally planned to tie the knot right away, but he and his fiancee decided to hold off and plan a more elaborate wedding, which will take place within the next six months.

Peniche was named Miss United States Teen in 2003, but was stripped of her title after she posed nude for Playboy in November 2004. She's appeared in the movies Species III and Grilled, as well as an episode of the television show, Minding The Store.

Carter, who has previously dated teen queens Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan, will be part of an E! channel reality series called House Of Carters that will also feature Nick, twin sister Angel, and sisters Bobbie Jean and Leslie. It will premiere on October 2. Carter's previous screen credits include a guest appearance on 7th Heaven and roles in Fat Albert and Supercross.

Carter sold more than 1.5 million copies of his 2000 album, Aaron's Party (Come Get It). It was followed by Oh Aaron in 2001 and Another Earthquake! in 2002. The inexplicable Come Get It: The Very Best Of Aaron Carter came out earlier this year.

10 Things Idiots Do on Myspace

there is NO SUCH THING as a myspace tracker.
it does NOT exist. so quit posting stupid bulletins like
no, it doesnt.

To the people who have like 25,000 friends,
are you serious?
You're stupid.
Go play in traffic.

Don't ever post pictures and say
"OMG, I'm so ugly"
"OMG, I'm so fat"
because if you were,
you wouldn't post them.
And if u do ur a freaking mongoloid.
Go taunt a mountain lion

Nobody cares about threats over the internet.
Don't try to act hardcore with the keyboard.
Fighting online is like racing in the special olympics;
even if you win, you're still retarded.

Quit crying
b/c you're not on someones top 8.
who the hell cares?
ITS MYSPACE not Jr. High!!!

Who really cares if
I don't accept you as a friend?
Don't send me another request or message asking
"what's up with you not adding me?"
I don't want you as a friend,
that's what's up!

Little 6th graders who have MySpace
and look like sluts,an act like whores
go somewhere else
because nobody wants you here.

If you have decided to read this,
you are a true MySpace Friend.
Real friends read their bulletins.

I say you go and pass this on
and maybe it will finally get through people's brains

And if you open a bulletin and it says something like
"repost this in 100 seconds or a ghost will rape your dog tonight,"

Repost this with..

Joe Purdy LA Times Feature

Finding their arena
An act needs something special to stand out among L.A.'s talent.
Here are five with notable potential.
September 21, 2006
By Kevin Bronson

Truly the troubadour

As it is with a lot of good singer-songwriters, Joe Purdy lives wherever his songs take him, wherever he finds inspiration. "Traveling feeds it, living feeds it, and traveling feeds living," the 26-year-old says in a lilt that reveals his roots in the Hickory Creek area of Arkansas. "Whenever you stop for a minute, you make a record."

That's not too outlandish a hyperbole -- Purdy, who's been based in L.A. the past six years, has churned out albums as often as some guys change T-shirts. He has recorded collections of his serene, bluegrass-tinged meditations in six locales (a couple have yet to be released), in a manner many artists would regard as rushed. Many sessions are low-fi, one-take affairs, but Purdy believes songs should be of the moment.

"Sometimes I'll write a song in the morning and show it to the band in the afternoon," he says. "We'll play it twice and then hit 'record.' When you nail it that first time, it's better than love."

Immediacy, after all, yields maximum emotional effect. On July 5, 2005, his first day ever in New York City, Purdy wrote "The City," the leadoff track on his new album, "Only Four Seasons," and a song that earned a spot on the soundtrack to the television show "Grey's Anatomy."

Purdy was no overnight success upon moving to L.A. He slogged through the assortment of day jobs -- handing out pamphlets, being a personal assistant, shooting photographs, painting houses -- until "I met a girl who turned me upside down and I sat down at a piano," he says. "It was my way of sorting through it.... Saves me the trip to the therapist's office."

He found an audience for his musings at the Hotel Cafe, the Hollywood singer-songwriter haven. "I was lucky I found a niche of people with the Hotel crew that feel like a family," he says. "I remember when I did my first record release show, they asked me if I could [draw] 30 people. I said I thought I could ... but for some reason a hundred people showed up. From then on, things were looking up."

Purdy will join the likes of Cary Brothers, Joshua Radin and Brett Dennen on select dates of the upcoming Hotel Cafe Tour. But his band won't be surprised if the songwriter pulls them into a studio somewhere for a recording session. "I've figured out that I have more fun if I just get the feel rather than try for production quality," Purdy says. "When we recorded in London you could hear more drums on the vocal mike than you can the vocals. But it's human, it's genuine."


Live: Oct. 2 as part of the Hotel Cafe Tour, at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip
