We’ve been hearing that black rice is the new superfood, packing a bigger antioxidant punch than blueberries. But all of us in the office are still wondering: Is this the Korean black rice, the purple rice with beans that complements our kimchi jjigae so wonderfully? They say that black rice turns a purple-ish color when cooked.


This is what the superfood black rice looks like uncooked.


This is what cooked Korean black rice looks like.

It’s the beans that make Korean rice turn purple, right? Does anyone know?

James Lee did NOT think these kids are cute.

Maybe I’m a little twisted but I’m so intrigued by the reasoning crazy of James Lee, the 43-year-old man who entered Discovery Communications headquarters yesterday with a gun and explosives. He was mentally ill, to be sure, but his beliefs contained some logic.

He believed that:

- Human overpopulation is responsible for all the pollution and problems in the world.

- We are being brainwashed by the media.

- Shows about mondo-families such as TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting and Jon & Kate Plus 8 (Now simply Kate Plus Eight), Table for 12,and Quints By Surprise were making people want to have babies.

- Instead of these type of programs, there should be shows encouraging human sterilization and infertility. He even tried to sponsor a contest to develop this type of television programming.

Lee felt that no one seemed to be listening so he took his rage to an unthinkable level. He finally got the attention he wanted.

She showed off her vocal chops on her debut album and now she’s putting on her dancing shoes! Margaret Cho joins the cast of Dancing With The Stars, competing against the likes of Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, The Hills starlet Audrina Patridge, David Hasselhoff, Brandy, former NBA star Rick Fox, Michael Bolton, Bristol Palin, former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, Disney star Kyle Massey, Brady Bunch star Florence Henderson and Dirty Dancing legend Jennifer Grey.

Do you think Margaret will have the moves? We have a feeling she’ll be popular with fans either way.

The new season kicks off on September 20 on ABC.
