Justin TImberlake's latest move....

Timberlake on phone via V CastBy Antony Bruno,

Justin Timberlake is taking his image mobile.Timberlake on Friday unveiled a mobile video channel on Verizon Wireless' V Cast video service called JT-TV during a pre-Grammy party at the Avalon in Hollywood.

The move makes Timberlake the first artist to have his own branded channel on the V Cast service, with content developed exclusively for it. He will provide four areas of programming: fashion, music, movies and lifestyle.

Filming for the mobile TV service began at the Avalon, where Timberlake and childhood friend Trace Ayala launched their William Rast fashion line, complete with fashion show and musical performances.

JT-TV will begin airing in March with fashion and music programming, followed by movie and lifestyle content added in May or June.

Timberlake's manager Johnny Wright said the idea grew from Timberlake's days with 'N Sync, when the group was touring through Europe and saw the more advanced media capabilities of mobile phones there at the time. When discussing tour sponsorship possibilities with Verizon, the idea resurfaced.

"We started asking questions," Wright said. "How much further could we take this? Could we get involved in V Cast, because we've always wanted to do something called JT-TV. It was just at the right time, and it just clicked."

For Verizon, this is the first of what it hopes will be many artist-branded opportunities on its V Cast service, designed to drive awareness and adoption of the mobile video format.

"Artists are looking for ways to market themselves outside of music, and we're always looking to see who's coming up and spot what makes a good fit for us," said Verizon director of advertising and sponsorships Suzy Deering, adding that Timberlake was the ideal launch partner. "He's an amazing artist for us to work with because he's already got a vision of who he is as a brand. It makes it easier for us to adopt that brand into our objectives and our audience."

The felines survived by eating styrofoam and plastic and drinking antifreeze tainted toilet water, police said.
All six kittens are now at a shelter where officials said they should be healthy enough to adopt soon.

The Luck of the Draw? Yeah, Whatever!

So, we've got five people in the Comm 464 group. It's me, Val, Christian, Farhad and Renee.

We decided to choose pieces of paper to see who'd be group leader. The one with the shortest piece would become said leader.

Well, imagine my luck to be first and to have chosen the smallest piece of paper!

"Beach Bum" defined

My father gave me this moniker of "beach bum" many years ago because I love to watch the Association of Volleyball Professionals (A.V.P.) Tour when the tour stops in California every summer.

It's a nickname that I still use today, especially in the AVP's forum.
