Bryan Singer took to Twitter a few days ago to confirm that several big names were returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past – one such name being Sir Ian McKellen. The Huffington Post has since caught up with McKellen to discuss his return to the X-Men franchise. It’s safe to say that McKellen seems rather excited about the whole thing.

Mckellen said, “What a gas?! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have just been playing “Waiting for Godot” throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we’ve stayed in touch. We can’t believe it. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy’s parts, but – no, no – we’re back. We’ll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven’t read the script, so I don’t know how much we’ve got to do. But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan to be doing it…

DMX is well-known for his gritty raps. But apparently, he’s starting another facet to an already accomplished career. He’s at the earliest phases of DJing. And when I mean early, I mean EARLY. When you see the video, its mostly of DMX having fun with DJ Premier and rapper Termanology in there too. But, you be the judge: should DMX look at this as a viable career option? Stranger things have happened in Hip-Hop. This is the VERY FIRST time DMX DJ’s!

THRILLER TURNS 30: Eddie Van Halen takes credit for improving ‘Beat It’

(CNN) — Eddie Van Halen sits on a sofa in his home studio, smoking an electronic cigarette and reminiscing about the 30th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s masterpiece album, “Thriller.”

“It seems like yesterday, doesn’t it,” he says softly. “It would have been fun to work with him again.”

Van Halen was a surprise guest on “Beat It,” the album’s third single. His blazing guitar solo lasted all of 20 seconds and took half an hour to record. He did it for free, as a favor to producer Quincy Jones, while the rest of his Van Halen bandmates were out of town.

“I said to myself, ‘Who is going to know that I played on this kid’s record, right? Nobody’s going to find out.’ Wrong!” he laughs. “Big-time wrong. It ended up being Record of the Year.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recently revealed to CNN…

Two years after the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon, British Petroleum has pled guilty to felony charges. The EPA announced as well that further contracts would be indefinitely suspended with the company due to the nature of the charges. This has very serious monetary implications for BP. It will also open competition for US military contracts that BP normally has control over; basically it is really good news for Exxon and Chevron. Two individuals that worked on the rig have also been arraigned, along with one former Gulf executive. All still plead not guilty to charges that include negligence of warning signs, concealing information, and manslaughter. The trial has not yet taken place. There is no word on a trial for the company at this point, just the individuals that worked on the rig. While this event caught the eye of the media with as a huge attraction, it is…

CCTV security cameras

CCTV Cameras are very useful when it comes to offering reliable monitoring and surveillance to a particular location. They are efficient equipment which help in the prevention of crime; they help keep criminals from breaking inside residences and also stealing valuables. However, having CCTV security cameras at home may be disadvantageous, also.

Apart from their numerous strengths, CCTV Cameras may be disadvantageous when it comes to personal privacy, too. Homeowners who’ve got CCTV camera systems set up in their own homes are going to be monitored 24/7. They won’t have the capacity to perform what they wish to do because they are being watched every single second, every single minute, every single day! It could be very annoying and also troublesome to appear in a video clip in which you have picked out your nose. It could be really irritating that the smallest motion that you try is going to…
