Video Performance: Allen Stone Performs “Sleep” On The Ellen Show

I saw Allen Stone open up for Nikka Costa a couple of years ago. I knew it was only a matter of time before Allen was making his own impact. Yesterday, he made his daytime television debut on The Ellen Show performing "Sleep".

It has been a while since a white boy has had this much soul...for real. Although I think a Stevie Wonder retro shirt would look better on him than one of Whitney Houston.

One thing is for sure; when Allen is singing, we highly doubt anyone wants to "Sleep" at all.-DocFB

Diagnosis: We expect big things from Allen in 2013

A letter from Michael Jackson to Lisa Marie Presley where he complains about not being able to sleep has been pulled from auction.

Lisa Marie has not expressed why she wants the letter pulled but it is fairly obvious.  Michael Jackson had a problem with sleeping that ultimately led to his untimely death to the drug propofol.

The letter, below, reads;

"Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally (literally) in 4 days now.  I need to be away from phones and Business people.  I must take care of my health first Im'  (I'm) crazy for you Love Turd."

Julian's Auction, has pulled the letter. They are the exact same company selling off Elvis Presley's crypt, Lisa Marie's father, and have honored Lisa Marie's request to pull the letter.

She was more than an ex-wife.  She was a true friend.  Something that Michael didn't really have.  It is very cool that she got something so personal from getting out.-DocFB

You may not know his face but you have seen his shows with his name on the credits.  Sherwood Swartz, the creator of the TV shows "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch" has died.  He was 94.

The TV legend died in his sleep of natural causes.  When "Island" first came out, it was slammed by critics.  Yet it found life and still does on reruns.  Interestingly enough, he wrote both theme songs for "The Brady Bunch" and "Gilligan's Island" respectively.-Dr.FB

When a movie doesn't debut at number 1, nowadays, it just will not hit number 1. Not true with Paranormal Activity which debuted at #3 at the box office, but is now #1, beating out saw VI.

The movie was made for 22,000 and bought for 300,000 and has now brought in 67 million since the movie opened 5 weeks ago. Paramount has spent about 10 million promoting the movie so they are getting a lot of money back in the red.

Someone posted on facebook after seeign the movie, they will never sleep the same way again.  Hmm. Are you going to see Paranormal Activity? Have you seen it?-Dr.FB
