Morgan Spurlock, the man behind exposing the dangers of eating fast food for a month, attempting to find Osama Bin Laden, exploiting product placement, and finding the true meaning of the San Diego Comic-Con is taking his documentary making talents to the music industry and will focus on the hottest boy band for his latest project.
One Direction, the mega-popular U.K. boy band that has been conquering music charts, will be the musical talent that Spurlock will document. Given that the Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Katy Perry: Part of Me documentaries were a surprising success, Sony Pictures wants to get in on some of the action while One Direction is still relevant. The studio has already scheduled the film for an August 30, 2013 release, and much like the recent documentaries of these mega pop stars, the film will be released in 3D.
At one time or another, you’ve probably seen one of the paintings that various people in a position of power have had commissioned of themselves. One particularly notable portrait out there is that of the Russian general, which someone has taken to an extremely entertaining new level.
George Dawe, an English portrait artist who has painted 329 portraits of Russian generals, uses a digital copy of his work as a basis to add his friends, family, and some celebrities into the paintings using Photoshop.
So far he’s done a bunch of celebrities, and most of them look amazing. If we didn’t know who these people were, you wouldn’t think twice about whether most of them were a legit Russian general or not. Some look a little off such as Sean Connery, for example, who looks as though he’s just passed gas in a room full of people, and is pleased that none of them can figure out who it was.

I despise American Idol. It goes against every fiber of belief I have in music. The Simon Cowell Cookie Cutter Factory of creating “stars” really gets on my last nerve. Despite my negativity towards the-show-that-distracts-millions, I can’t help but write about it at the moment, because metal gods Judas Priest made a guest appearance on the series finale the other night – and blew the whole show out of the water with a great performance, which you can view at the bottom of this post.
My hatred for American Idol aside, you have to admit that this is a good move for Priest in the publicity department. As reported here numerous times, the band are about to embark on their farewell tour, and making an impressive appearance on a show like this is a good way to get the word out beyond the regular fan base.
