Hope you have a fabulous 22nd Birthday Molly!
I was thinking the other day about how great it would be to get ‘real’ pictures of food options at some of today’s best restaurants to get an idea of whether I really wanted to order it. I mean, the photos on menus at the chain restaurants are clearly touched up versions of what actually comes out of the kitchen. And the sloppy plates of food on the windows of most fast Chinese and Mexican food restaurants are hardly appetizing.
I guess that is one of the benefits of a site like Photospace. You can start your own photo blog or photo album dedicated to the food you have ordered and eaten. You can leave comments on whether it was worth it and recommend it or help us all avoid it. It’s really easy these days with cameras built into your phones and simple programs for downloading and posting them to your favorite photosharing site.
Have a favorite meal you’d love to share with your friends? Have a horrible experience that you want to make sure no one duplicates? Post it on your profile page or comment here.

Drop by and say “Hi” To Natalie. You may be seeing her at future Photospace sponsored events as well.
Jeff Bozz and Devin Haman have created a tanning empire and stardom for themselves as entrepreneurs with personality and smarts. Just a few months ago, they attended the Palms Place Hotel and Spa Red Carpet event and talked about the success of their endeavor and Sunset Tan on E!
Okay Photospacers, who caught shots of the celebrity glams last night? Did anyone catch Angie and Brad grabbing their limo? How about any late night stops at the In-n-Out? Come on people, I want to see photos of the action. Even if it was just a glimpse outside an after-party.
Okay - if you didn’t get to be in the middle of the fanfare, how about pictures from your Oscar watch parties? I know you have them. If 50 years down the road, the Oscars turn into an American Idol-esque gross distortion of itself, we are going to want to have pictures of what these events used to be and the fanfare around them.
Share your photos hear or post them to your account with the description “Oscars 2009″
Jeff Snyder posted some excellent pictures from his trip to Honduras. He really captured the spirit and personality of the country. Some of those kids are just too darn cute.
For all you muppet lovers out there, check out this great little article on the origins of your favorite muppet characters. Did you know Miss Piggy was from Iowa? And that Rizzo the Rat was named after Dustin Hoffman’s Midnight Cowboy character? My favorite muppet is Rowlf the Dog. He was a sarcastic puppet from his youth. His appearances on the Jimmy Dean show I think are the best, far better than his Muppet Show work. Check out these clips of Rowlf in his prime.
A lot of us are preparing for a family vacation for Spring Break to somewhere warm with a lot of sun, maybe some sand and a sea of blue water. If you plan on capturing the week on film and sharing it with your friends on photospace, you may want to take some of these tips and tricks from Kodak with you. The people at Kodak have put together some helpful ideas for taking the best pictures in the sun or in the water. That way we all will be able to enjoy those great pics when you return from a week of vacation fun.
Thanks Dustin for sharing this great video of major crashes caught on camera during wakeboarding competitions. Some of these are pretty gnarly!
Check out more videos and photos shared by Dustin.
Photospace has become a great place for friends to share pics of their celebrity encounters. The beautiful Bambi Lashell has had a few brushes with some Hollywood celebs and has shared those photos with her friends. I particularly love this one with the real Girls Next Door, Holly Madison and Bridgette Marquardt (check out Bridge’s new Man) and oh, the enigmatic Mr. Hugh Hefner.
Here’s Bambi with Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav.
I love when Seth Meyers gets real and sarcastic on the News Update. This week he took on Kelloggs and the swimming associated that have chastised Michael Phelps for smoking marijuana. Freakin’ funny.
Who doesn’t love Brittany? OK, so many of you maybe. But you can’t deny a fascination with the former mouseketeer turned paparazzi prize. Her music will get stuck in your head like nobody’s business. Now, tie that with the sex appeal and seduction of Rihanna…you’ve now got a match made in a disturbed, funky heaven.
Enjoy this little video mash of Rihanna’s Umbrella and Britney’s Oops I did it Again. The slowed temped mix of red and black leather make this combination sultry, sexy and hip.
Are you a west coaster with a need for a real boost in the morning? Interested in knowing how the other side of the country is waking up? Flytographer has boasted an pretty little video on the sunsets of New York. While she scans the horizon as the sun comes over the Hudson River and shines brightly on the many boats in the water, she talks about New York and what it can feel like for a New Yorker.
