ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police say a would-be Albuquerque burglar was halted by unlikely obstacles — window blinds.
KRQE-TV reports that police found Thomas Molina on Sunday tangled in some window blinds at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque after police received a call about a break-in.
Police say the 38-year-old Molina told police he was looking for computer hardware.
Molina was arrested and charged with burglary and breaking and entering. He is being held on a $10,000 bond.
It was unclear if he had an attorney.

Loved by girls of all ages, Hello Kitty is the global pop icon from Sanrio. Known for her trademark red bow and mouthless visage, “the friend to all” celebrated her 35th Anniversary in 2009, but shows no sign of slowing down. She has come a long way since her 1974 debut on a coin purse, and graces a range of lifestyle products ranging from iPhone apps and cameras to high-end diamond jewelry, cosmetics, apparel, fashion accessories and home electronics. Her success is due to her timelessness and her ability to transcend demographics—she is a true lifestyle brand with fans around the world.

Did you know The Facebook (yes, I call it The Facebook) changed your default email address? They did. Go ahead, check.
Did you know you have an @facebook.com email account? You do. It’s what you use when messaging people on Facebook. Apparently, very few users use their Facebook email because most of us use Yahoo! Mail or Gmail (or in my case: Edsa Mail), so they took action and changed your default email without telling you.
Your default email is what appears on your profile info. If your default email was, say, firstname.lastname@example.org, then you can bet The Facebook changed it to email@example.com, or worse [randomnumbers]@facebook.com.
This sucks because they didn’t tell us. It’s an unpleasant surprise to us. Like date rape.
Vans Go Skateboarding Day was was epic!
“Support Filipino products.”
It doesn’t matter where you grew up, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase before. In elementary, in high school, in college. You hear people say it on TV. You’ve read about it in Sibika at Kultura books, magazines, newspapers (or if you’re a very young kid, you’ve probably read it somewhere on the internet).
The problem is I often find myself in a Catch-22 kind of situation when it comes to supporting Filipino products. I wonder how many of you feel the same. On one hand, you feel Pinoy Pride, you feel the need to support our kababayans and our economy by buying Filipino products. On the other hand, you almost immediately feel buyer’s remorse the moment you purchase a Filipino product because you feel it’s corny, or baduy, or of inferior quality.
Don’t get me wrong, we have plenty of Filipino products that are world-class, and most of them have stood the test of time and are going stronger by the day. Team Manila is one of those products.
Team Manila has been around for awhile, and it’s gaining more and more momentum because of its quality, its Pinoy taste. Because it’s inspired by our own Filipino culture. Because it’s not baduy, because people from all walks of life can rock it and not look odd. Team Manila makes me prouder to be a Filipino.
Visit http://www.teammanila.com/ or go to a Team Manila store near you and see for yourself. I’m not certain about a lot of things, but I’m sure if Dr. Jose Rizal were still alive, he’d approve.
Team Manila makes it easier for us to support Filipino products.
Please tell PNoy I want to work for him. I can be his Sam Nickel. —Degenerate
Last year Hilary Duff got engaged and thanked her man for giving her a ring by
giving him a hummer tickling his bellybutton. Now she’s knocked up. People reports:
Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie, 30, who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary this weekend, are expecting their first child, the singer-actress announced on her official website.
In the post, Duff, 23, reflected on her marriage– she and Comrie wed on Aug. 14, 2010 – and then made her big announcement.
“We also want to share the exciting news that… BABY MAKES THREE,” she wrote. “We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives.”
Please help KC and his “Get Paris” campaign. Paris Hilton is in the Philippines right now and KC would love to have her on The KC Show. If Paris drops by, KC will bring Cassandra back. He will also give Paris Hilton two Smart Netphones (she lost 2 cellphones as she arrived in Manila).
You can join the “Get Paris” campaign by tweeting Paris Hilton. Include the hash tag #getParis. Ask her nicely and tell her how much we need to see Cassandra back (because Cassandra is the Paris Hilton of the Philippines).
This is no laughing matter. Our condolences to the families of the five victims.
via Star Pulse:
Country duo Sugarland and singer Sara Bareilles have escaped unscathed after a powerful storm caused the stage at the Indiana State Fair to collapse on Saturday night, killing five people.
The tragic event, which occurred as fans waited for Sugarland to perform, followed an announcement by concerned organizers who warned that a storm was advancing.
It’s claimed the dust bowl smashed into the scaffolding and rigging, raining steel and dirt into the terrified audience. Winds were estimated between 60 and 70 miles-per-hour.
Four people died during the tragedy and a fifth died overnight, while 45 people were injured – many of them from the VIP section near the stage. Indiana State Police Sergeant Dave Bursten added that some of those injured were in “very serious” condition and conceded it was a “very likely possibility” that the death toll could mount.
Sunday’s activities have been scrapped, but the fair is expected to resume on Monday with a service to honor the victims of Saturday’s disaster. The Indiana State fair runs until August 21.
Sugarland, who were due to headline the event, have taken to their Twitter.com page to express their condolences.
In a message to fans, they write, “We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you’ll join us. They need your strength.”
And Bareilles, who had performed on the stage earlier, tweeted, “I’m speechless and feel so helpless. Please send love and prayers to Indianapolis tonight. My heart aches for the lives lost.”
It’s not the first time this year that something like this has happened, either. In early July, rockers Cheap Trick survived a similar stage collapse at one of their shows in Canada; and last week the Flaming Lips canceled their show in Oklahoma City after some of the stage rigging fell during a severe storm.
The sister, Lee Grace Dougherty, posted naked pictures of herself online days before the robbery. Maybe it was all part of the plan.
I wasn’t a Sesame Street kid (because I’m Pinoy, Batibot and MTV were my Sesame Street) so I always thought of Bert and Ernie as jocks and hetero roommates like Beavis and Butthead. They would drink beer and party with women and sometimes “cross swords” during threesomes (okay, crossing swords is kind of gay).
Now activists on Facebook want to change the way I look at Bert and Ernie. They want Bert and Ernie married. I have nothing against gays and gay marriage but I think they’re taking things too far. I want all of you to remember Bert and Ernie this way:
I don’t really care. They’re puppets.
From the Boston Herald:
Should one of TV’s longest-running couples take the plunge?
A Facebook campaign calling on PBS to marry off longtime pals Bert and Ernie on “Sesame Street” has picked up approximately 4,000 signatures and an disproportionate amount of headlines.
It’s time, activists argue, with New York now legalizing same-sex marriage, to show kids that gay couples are everywhere and just like everyone else.
The nature of Bert and Ernie’s relationship has dogged the show for years. The makers of Sesame Street have issued a statement hoping to quell the controversy, saying, the roomies were “created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.”
Further, PBS says Muppets don’t have sexual orientations.
Really? As writer Armistead Maupin noted, referring to Kermit the Frog and a certain Miss Piggy, “The folks who fret that a wedding between Bert and Ernie would ’sexualize’ a kids’ show were remarkably silent about a frog porking a pig.”
This blog report was brought to by the letter “Y” are we talking about this silliness?

I’ve always admired KC’s co-host Kat Alano. I admire her more now.
Earlier today, Kat decided to admit she’s bi-curious. She admitted her bi-curiosity on The KC Show. She also said she wants to make out with Mocha.
We need to help make this happen for Kat. Who are we to deny this young gorgeous lady of her dreams and aspirations? I am
begging asking all of you to please tweet Mocha Uson and ask her to be a guest on The KC Show.
You can listen to The KC Show weekdays on Wave 89.1 from 8AM – 11AM.
After the cut is a picture of Mocha. She’s hot!
Ashton Kutcher, whose Two and a Half Men character name is Walden Schmidt according to Access Hollywood, got a standing O at his first taping. (I don’t know what O stands for. Orgasm? I don’t know.)
Radar Online reports:
The taping of the first new season episode ended Friday night with a standing ovation for Ashton Kutcher and all the returning cast members.
Kutcher, Jon Cyrer, Angus T. Jones, Holland Taylor, Conchata Ferrell and Marin Hinkle all took their individual bows — with the audience going wild for Ashton — before lining the stage for the traditional group moment.
The first episode features Charlie Harper’s funeral — there’s no coming back for Sheen — and the introduction of Kutcher as internet billionaire Walter Schmidt, who buys Harper’s Malibu house.
Kelly Osbourne just called Christina Aguilera a “fat bitch” for past grievances. Another Celebrity Death Match is the making (MTV should bring that show back and play music videos). Kelly would beat Xtina by biting her head off because I have a feeling that’s the way Ozzy rolls.
Via US Magazine:
After Joan Rivers, 78, said Aguilera looked “stuffed into” a Givenchy LBD at an event in Munich, Germany last month (and likened her to “Snooki’s Scandinavian cousin”), Osbourne chimed in: “Maybe she is just becoming the fat bitch she was born to be. I don’t know. She was a c**t to me. And she bought my house!”
Osbourne’s digs at 30-year-old Aguilera’s fluctuating weight didn’t end there. “She called me fat for so many f***ing years,” Osbourne continued, “so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too.”
My spider sense told me Harmony is a porn star and that Charlie Sheen wants to have a threesome with her and his ex. I read the whole thing and found out Harmony is not a porn star Charlie Sheen wants to have a threesome with. Bummer.
Via Yahoo! Philippines:
Charlie Sheen feels he and ex-wife Brooke Mueller are on the path to “harmony”.
The pair married in 2008, and they have two-year-old twins Bob and Max together, although their divorce was finalised in May this year.
Charlie and Brooke’s relationship has been famously tumultuous, with past incidents including his arrest in 2009 at their home in Aspen, Colorado, for assaulting her.
However, the pair have been putting their differences aside for the sake of the kids, and TMZ has published a photograph of the former husband and wife smiling with Bob and Max. The snapshot was taken at the weekend at Charlie’s Hollywood mansion, as Brooke had taken a break from her residential rehab programme.
Charlie told TMZ his tots had a wonderful weekend “playing around and scarfing down handfuls of candy”.
“Harmony is our goal. Sunday was a wonderful start,” he beamed.
According to the publication, Charlie is keen for Brooke to move into his neighbourhood once she completes her rehab programme as he wants to spend more time with his family.
Brooke has battled substance abuse problems for a long time, and received rehab treatment earlier this year. She was recently pictured carrying alleged drugs paraphernalia, and reports followed that she had checked into a residential rehab. It was later claimed that Charlie is paying for the programme. Apparently he had been keen to stop his ex-wife entering a rehab centre in Mexico where a controversial drug called Ibogaine is given to help treat addictions.
After showing support for gay marriage by getting a tattoo and giving them the finger, Miley Cyrus went somewhere in a bikini (Who cares where. She’s in a bikini!) She also
tried to give her dog lung cancer smoked a cigarette.
From The Sun:
MILEY Cyrus looked smoking hot on holiday — despite taking a drag on a cigarette.
The 18-year-old held pet dog Floyd in one hand while puffing on the cig in the other.
Singer Miley — sporting a frilly bikini — was taking a break with Australian boyfriend Liam Hemsworth and two pals.
Looking tanned and toned she was seen strolling along a jetty and later climbed on a jet ski.

Most people grew up watching certain shows like Sesame Street or Batibot. I grew up watching MTV (and KC grew up there, youngest VJ ever at 14). MTV is like the cool neighbor next door you always looked up to but had to part with after high school. MTV is now 30 years old, and like some friends in real life, I’m disappointed that MTV used to be cool but now he’s orange and he hangs out with douchebags from Jersey Shore. (MTV used to play music videos.)
I choose to remember MTV the way it was during my teens so… HAPPY BIRTHDAY MTV!
From Yahoo! Music:
NBC has its peacock, CBS has its always-open eye, and MTV, which first hit the airwaves on August 1, 1981, has always been represented by a large, boxy M with “TV” scrawled in graffiti on its corner. Above is the first MTV commercial ever broadcast on the channel and the first time viewers saw the logo on air — the famous lunar-landing spot that became such a recognizable symbol of the station, the Video Music Awards trophy is called a “Moonman.” MTV’s iconic logo has not changed much in these past three decades, but there have been some subtle facelifts that reflected bigger shifts in the company’s philosophy.
Miley Cyrus showed support for gay marriage by tweeting “All LOVE is equal”. Then she gave gays the finger.

Good news! Olivia Wilde, also known as 13 to most House fans, has a nude scene in the upcoming movie The Change-Up. This is great news if you haven’t seen the movie Alpha Dog
And now the bad news via Gizmodo:
The former OC grad preserved her modesty in a scene with Ryan Reynolds using pasties but after filming wrapped, producers noticed that Wilde’s pasties were clearly visible and that “they had no choice but to use computer-generated imagery to make the sex scene seem as real as possible.” Wilde says:
“I wasn’t actually naked but now appear to be naked because… in that scene Ryan Reynolds is supposed to be covering them (with his body) and he moved and so the pasties were in the movie and so they had to paint in nipples using CGI. And I got to approve the nipples! They sent me an email saying, ‘Please review nipple cover shot one through seven and decide which one is most like the original.’ I don’t know what he (producer) was using as source material… but I think it’s pretty close.”
I’m starting to hate the future now. I don’t mind fake boobs in the silicone sense of the word, but CGI? Really? I just feel sorry for the pubescent kids. When I was a little boy I saw a woman with 3 breasts in Total Recall. I was in awe. Days later I found out that it was prosthetics (they did not have much CGI back then). I was never the same again.
Remember Jessica Alba’s nude scene in Machete? CGI. She wasn’t even naked. Look:
As we know the “Planking” phenom has caught the world by storm and with most popular fads comes many different versions of the original. To date there are many like Koalaing, Deading, Toweling and Owling. Now I may have not start the so-called “Planking” craze, but I do remember doing the exact same thing many years ago called, “The Lying Down Game.” Again I’m not trying to take credit for inventing this idiotic waste of time, but I would like some credit as one of the pioneers in the Philippines. This request has been denied and the small credit I have yearned for will never be mine. That is why I have decided to make up a new craze. A new phenomenon that will sweep the world over like Amanda Coling swept away any advice to stay off showbiz talk shows. This new craze will be forever know as mine.. This blog entry will be its introduction to the world….
You have Owling, Deading, Toweling, Koaling and of course Planking. It is my pleasure to introduce to you…. (more…)
Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith are leaving Glee after season 3 according to this post .
This is sad news for KC because he is such a big Gleek. He gets cranky every time he fails to watch Glee (which is why we urge you to buy and send him the Glee DVD box set). But we here at KCMontero.com are optimists. Look at the bright side: Charice might get a bigger role in season 4 and KC loves her like most Filipinos.
It’s a sad day for Gleeks. But we still have a full season to enjoy and appreciate Rachel, Kurt and Finn. Appreciate Kurt Hummel’s humjob (short for “Hummel job”). Appreciate Rachel’s annoying yet talented personality. Appreciate Finn and whatever it is he does on the show.
I’m personally just waiting for Matthew Morrison and his Will Schuester character to leave the show so my mentor KC Montero can replace him. That would be awesome. Imagine KC and Charice doing a duet. Awesome. — Degenerate
July 9 is VANS Skateboarding Day. Competitions, music, live performances by Urbandub, Salamin, Arcadia, The ButcherCons and Trick Your Mind, and live tattoo session with Wildside Tattoo.
More importantly (and I will only tell you this because you’re reading this blog and therefore very loyal), ask Wendellvans to follow you back on Twitter. He likes it. He only follows the coolest people. If he follows you, you’ll get a pair of free Vans. I receive a pair of Vans shoes every month and I always say to him: “Sir, nakakahiya na po. You don’t have to give me free Vans often. I’ll buy.” yet he still sends me a lot of stuff because he’s a generous person and a Catholic who, like me, is celibate and a virgin.
P.S. I, Degenerate, was not under duress when I wrote this. I was not forced by @wendellvans to write this piece. He does not possess incriminating photos of me with what appears to be a couple of strippers who may or may not be she-males.
I hate the way you don’t talk to me often,
and the way you stink the air.
I hate that you don’t ride in my car,
I hate it when you catch me stare.
I hate your sexy body and great looks,
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate it… I hate the way you’re with Channel V,
I hate the way I bleed and breathe MTV.
I hate that you’re an insectivore (because you eat bugs),
even worse I’m a carnivore (I love spam and bacon and burgers).
I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact you never/rarely call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
not even close,
not even a little bit,
not even at all.
(KC runs out, cries…)
