Unless you have lived under a rock over the last two weeks, you’ve heard of The Hunger Games. No it’s not another name for the Biggest Loser. The movie is based on the book of the same name, and like Twilight, they became an instant success which has now turned into a monster at the theatres. Everybody loves the heroine Katniss. If you plan on dressing like her for the movie, your ensemble would not be complete without the Dutch braid. It’s very pretty and according to the vid, easy to do. We are not so sure. Try it out and send us a photo! ~ Forbes & Marshall

It’s been a tribute week for Davy Jones who died suddenly of a heart attack last week. The Monkees sold over 65 million albums but the group members never made any money. Think of how much he gave in just three minutes to thousands of people at that concert. He will be missed.~ Forbes & Marshall

Just in case you were wondering, Wilson is the name of Susan Jacks kidney. All of her brothers were tested when she needed a transplant and it turns out that Billy was a perfect match. Ironically she sings about him in her Poppy Family hit “Which Way You Going Billy?” Billy apparently was “going” to the hospital and gave the ultimate gift. When they removed Billy’s kidney it was the size of a football, hence the name Wilson (a football brand name) Susan has a big show to benefit the Kidney Foundation at UVIC on March 10th. Get your tickets here!

A heartfelt tribute to Whitney by her Bodyguard co-star and dear friend. Kevin Costner hired her for the movie and also was the one who suggested she record one of his favorite Dolly Parton songs “I Will Always Love You”. The rest is history and unfortunately so is she. Very sad indeed.

What can we say. The world has lost another famous icon to alleged drugs and alcohol. Whitney Houston they say, had switched from the more unacceptable crack to a more PC prescription recipe. As many people who dismiss this as just another out of control celebrity who took one too many pills, there are some who by the tragedy, may be snapped out of their own delusion and see the error of the drug induced ways. One would hope that her loss may actually be the wake up call to those family and friends who may be struggling with their own demons. Sadly, the loss of Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse in the span of three years did nothing to sober up this lost soul. In the end though, we will truly miss her and the joy she brought to so many. ~Forbes & Marshall

This is an example of Canadian creativity at work. This ad aired only in Canada during the Super Bowl but now has been noticed south of the 49th. Two amature hockey teams in Ontario showed up for a regular game that is always played to an empty rink. The teams had no idea what was about to happen. When the game started, the seats suddenly filled with adoring fans, jumbo screens, mascots and a TV crew complete with the play by play announcers. The players had the experience of a lifetime and some advertising agencies are calling it the “commercial of the decade” Bet you’ll have to watch to twice~ Forbes & Marshall
