At midnight tonight, Yahoo! is going to unveil its new logo. To build some hype for this momentous occasion, the site showcased one new version of the logo for the past 29 days. By our calculations, 29 out of the 29 altered Yahoo! logos are awful.
Luckily there’s no guarantee that the new logo will be one of the 29 already displayed. However, we imagine whatever the new logo looks like, people will hate it, complain about it on Twitter, and then forget about it by next week.
Below is a sampling of the new Yahoo! logos. If you can scroll through them all without yawning, you are a better person than your FishbowlNY editors.
Antoine Ashley, a contestant on Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, died earlier this week of heart failure, a representative told The Wrap.
The 27-year-old died Monday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Ashley, who went by the stage name of Sahara Davenport, appeared on the second season of the popular reality series. His TV credits also include One Life to Live, 15 Films About Madonna, and Magnificent Obsessions.
“I thank God for giving me an Angel Antoine Ashley to share with the rest of the world,” said Angela Ashley Reddish, Ashley’s mother. “My family and I would like to thank everyone for their condolences and support. We know that our Angel is now dancing in heaven. May God bless each and everyone.”
Logo will a marathon of Ashley’s season on Friday.
“Shocked & heartbroken over @SaharaDavenport,” RuPaul tweeted. “Never occurred to me that we’d ever lose one of my girls. I see them as immortal.”
NBC has put together a block deal for primetime, just like Saturday morning kids’ shows. In a first look deal with BermanBraun, NBC has contracted to air 2 or even 3 hours of primetime reality programming in a single block supplied by Thom Beers’ Original Prods. Ownership of the shows will be split with NBC, and the network will keep the domestic rights, while the producers retain international rights. Beers’ current and previous shows include Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, Monster House and Monster Garage. Expect this in later 2008.
Les Moonves confirmed that CBS has plans to slot Showtime series into the primetime schedule this midseason if the strike continues. Show under consideration include Dexter, Weeds and Brotherhood, all of which would be edited for broadcast TV. Weeds will probably end up to be about 15 minutes long.
LOGO channel is looking for people to tell their real stories for Be Real: Season 2, the documentary series about the GLBT life. Producers particularly wants to focus on compelling stories about an upcoming pivotal event such as a wedding, anniversary, reconciliation with family or friends or a move to a new location. Especially if you’ve recently moved to say, Mecca.
The Democratic presidential candidates were out and about in West Hollywood last night — and no, it wasn’t your typical $10,000 a seat fundraiser at a house in the hills. Instead, the White House hopefuls hit up a couple of WeHo hotspots — Barack Obama opted for the hopping watering hole Area while Hillary Clinton took her act to homo-hotspot The Abbey.
Hillary’s post-forum party was the cheaper of the two tickets with prices ranging from $50-$1000 while Obamaâ€™s prices started at $250. It might have worked out in Hil’s favor. Says an FBLA source: “Hillary’s was PACKED. The Abbey was practically busting at the seams.” However, while Hillary kept close to the guests who threw down $1000 for VIP wristbands, she was still within arms reach of most guests.
My source said he even managed to get up close and personal with the former First Lady (Forget that he said the birds eye view helped him realize how short she actually is!). No word on how Obama’s night went down. Both candidates were both in town for the Human Rights Campaign’s Presidential Forum, aired exclusively on LOGO.
