24-year-old Brittany Wampler of Maryland bought an old-school Nintendo on eBay for $31 a few days ago. She was inspecting it after she got it and saw an image of Jesus on the top! She says it's not residue, like from a sticker. Quote, "It's basically infused into the plastic." And when she sent a photo to the video game blog Kotaku, they checked it out and said it wasn't Photoshopped. Jesus really is on her Nintendo. As for whether this is REALLY a sign, Brittany says, quote, "I was raised religious, but I haven't made up my mind really. I would say I believe in the possibility." There's no word on what she plans to do with her Jesus Nintendo.
The band continued to play, but when he tried to join in on the chorus, he stumbled forward and fell. That's when the doctors hit the stage to check him out. After a few minutes Randy got up, gave a thumbs up, and then left the venue. Here's the official statement, quote, "Mr. Travis was overcome by a combination of dehydration, over-the-counter allergy medications, and caffeine use. This, combined with the heat of the stage lights, caused him to pass out." Randy is currently "resting comfortably at home" and he expects to honor all of his tour dates.

She looks great, right? Then again, she looked beautiful before too, and we’re pretty sure you agree with us when it comes to complimenting her taste. After all, it was just a couple of months ago when Taste of Country readers voted Underwood the most stylish country music star, ahead of even the always stunning Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift.
We’ll probably get a better look at her new ‘do on Nov. 9, when Underwood co-hosts the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley. Carrie reports that her and Brad have “been kind of texting different ideas back and forth. We’re gonna start working on our promos, our commercials and stuff, and it’s gonna be good.”
As for when we’ll hear new music from the young superstar, she tells the Hollywood Reporter that she’s about half done with her fourth album: “I’ve recorded vocals (for) six songs thus far. It’s all about just making the best album that I possibly can. New songs are coming in all the time — I’m still writing, and I’ve recently written some stuff that I’m really, really excited about.”

Here's the post from Facebook -
"As some of you might know, there have been some recent changes in my band. Change can be hard, and it's not something you come to lightly. I couldn't be more proud of the music we've created together over the years, and I'll treasure the memories. I know you will join me in wishing everyone only the best in their future endeavors. Thanks for all the unwavering support you've shown me over the years, and I can't wait to continue our journey…See you all soon!"
I'll keep an eye on this one for ya!

Fortunately, the process didn't drag on. Hillary says, quote, "Time and a couple of sessions with that mediator and we figured things out. I think it’s honestly a really smart way to work through things." DAVE HAYWOOD sees a huge payoff too. He says, quote, "I think we're the closest we've ever been as a group right now."

If you got to run around outside for a few minutes every day, maybe swing on some monkey bars or throw around a football would it make you a better worker? An outdoor footwear company called KEEN surveyed full-time American workers to find ways they could improve productivity. The answer: Recess.
53% of the workers surveyed thought that taking a 10-minute outdoor recess each day would make them happier, healthier and more productive. Two in five workers thought it would be a good way to reduce workplace stress. One in three thought it would make them more productive all day long. Nearly three in four workers said they'd never had a recess break at work. (--Where do the other one in four work?) Despite the fact that 53% thought it was a good idea, only 44% of workers say they'd actually TAKE RECESS if their company offered it. Women and young employees were most likely to say they'd take a recess.

Following Kenny’s landing and an acoustic performance from newcomer Bradley Gaskin (who is being produced by Big and Rich’s John Rich), the dynamic duo and the Redneck Woman took the stage for a night filled with ‘Xtreme’ entertainment. To make the night even more special for the fans, Big and Rich and Wilson took all proceeds from their performance and donated it to Operation Finally Home.

The founder of Pixar is a guy named Ed Catmull. But WAY before Pixar made their modern classics, Ed was a grad student at the University of Utah studying math, physics, and computer science. While he was there, he made a cool prototype of what was to come. You can check it out, it's a computer-animated 3D rendering of Ed's left hand, and some faces. But keep in mind, it's from 1972! Almost 40 years ago!
Aldean loves the timelessness and nostalgia that certain music evokes, and he hopes that fans will feel this way about his music in the future. “My music, it ain’t music that’s gonna change the world or anything. But whenever I hear a song that I go, ‘That makes me think of me being 17 years old again,’ I gotta feel like there’s an audience for that. I make music that, if I was a fan, I’d want to listen to in my truck,” Aldean says. The ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ hitmaker also thinks that teens have an easier time relating to the type of music he is creating now, rather than the more vintage tunes he grew up on. “That’s the way the circle of music happens,” he explains. Despite this idea, Aldean’s music seems to attract fans of all ages. He says, “I play what I play, and whoever likes it, likes it.”

A Guy Is Suing His 22 Co-Workers . . . For Winning a $99 Million Lottery Jackpot While He Was on Medical Leave.
He's worked at the company in for 14 years, but he hurt his back earlier this year, went on medical leave, and didn't make his monthly payment in June, July, or August. And when his co-workers landed the jackpot, Edward decided that as a longtime member of the lottery pool, he was entitled to an equal share of the money. Edward admits that he was $15 behind in his monthly payments, but he says in the past the group has set aside money from smaller winnings to cover for people, including one co-worker who was out for five months. Last week, a judge set aside $2 million of the jackpot, which COULD be Edward's share, depending on the outcome of a trial that starts in December. Two other people played up through July and missed out on the jackpot too. But they haven't complained or filed suit . . . yet.
Osmond said that in addition to knowing how to work a crowd, the singer is in good shape and could withstand the physical rigors that come with the show. Osmond continued, “I said, ‘You know, Tim’s in pretty good shape here. He’s got his muscles and the whole bit. I think he should do ‘Dancing With the Stars’!’ And the place went crazy.”
This season’s cast is already set, with the likes of Chaz Bono (Cher’s son) and Nancy Grace (the talk show pundit) confirmed to appear, but perhaps McGraw can yank on his dancing boots next season? He’s already got Osmond campaigning for him, so perhaps McGraw fans could do a Facebook campaign to get him on the show … provided he actually wants to do it! You never know. Maybe we will see McGraw showing ‘em how it’s done, country style, on ‘DWTS’ some time in the future.

Looks like KEITH URBAN'S zero tolerance toward security guards harassing fans has rubbed off on ERIC CHURCH. Eric kicked out a thick-headed guard who went over the top on an innocent fan. It happened last month at Eric's show in Aberdeen, Washington, when a female fan approached the stage wanting him to sign her boot. Eric explains, quote, "She wasn't hurting anything. "She threw me her boot and the security guard tried to manhandle her. I got real irritated. I stopped singing, but the band kept playing (so) I couldn't get his attention." Eric tried THROWING the boot AT the guard in hopes he'd get the message, but the dude was clueless. Eric asked the woman to bring the boot up again, and that's when the guard went over the line. Eric says, quote, "She brought the boot to me and I'll be damned if he didn't try to kick her out again. By that time, I had lost it. So I stopped the show and had my guys kick the security guard out. The fans loved it. "I never had an encounter like that with a security guard. I wasn't sad when he was gone."

GEORGE LUCAS is releasing the original "Star Wars" trilogy on Blu-Ray this September 16th. And that can only mean one thing: "Star Wars" nerds in an uproar over the weird changes he keeps making. Basically, whenever George Lucas releases a new version of "Star Wars", whether it's on DVD, a boxed set, whatever, he tinkers with them by adding CGI special effects, adding deleted scenes, or removing previous changes that fans didn't like. And this time even regular fans might get annoyed. Because at the end of "Return of the Jedi", he dubbed in audio of Darth Vader screaming "Noooooooo!" while the Emperor electrocutes Luke Skywalker.

Scotty explains, quote, "There's technically going to be one cover. Keith Urban pitched a song my way, and it's one he did way back when he was part of the band THE RANCH. "He's on tour right now so we don't know, but he said he might play guitar on the track." As far as the sound of Scotty's debut album well, I'll let him explain. He says, quote, "It's not going to be poppy. That's one thing we stayed away from. I grew up with the old-school stuff, so I didn't want to completely stray from that. "We've got the rocker songs, the up-tempo stuff. But when we slow it down, the songs get more intimate, and you can definitely hear some of the more classic elements." (--Scotty's album "Clear As Day" is due out October 4th.)
One more thing about Scotty McCreery PeopleTV.com asked if any of the big-time artists he's met have left him star-struck. He mentioned CARRIE UNDERWOOD and TIM MCGRAW.
The PISTOL ANNIES debut album, "Hell on Heels", sold over 44,000 copies in its debut week, which was enough for it to land at Number One on the "Billboard" Top Country Albums chart. It's also #5 on the magazine's Top 200 pop chart. Part of the press release on the band's Facebook page includes quotes from each of the girls. MIRANDA LAMBERT said, quote, "I cannot believe how much the fans have embraced us."
