StupidCancer/i2y Contest

Here's your chance to pull a Zac Efron and give cancer the bird.

Zac has been wearing the I'm Too Young For This Cancer Foundation wristband to support his cousin Emily, a young adult cancer survivor. All of us know people who have battled cancer. The truth is that everyone who is a cancer survivor is too young no matter how old they are. But survivors who are diagnosed as young adults face a unique set of challenges and i2y is there to help them connect to the support they need... emotional, physical and financial. And this is your chance to help this wonderful organization.

i2y has put together a contest that asks you and your friends to follow Zac's lead. All you have to do is get together a bunch of people wearing the wristband and take a pic. Then follow the contest FB page and the stupidcancer twitter and submit your pic and details to them via twitter. The three people who get the largest groups together each win an iTunes gift card. For full details on rules and prizes, check out the contest page at zacgivesback.com.

To purchase wristbands, click here. You can also donate money directly to the foundation via this page. 100% of the proceeds go to the i2y Foundation and their goal of supporting young adult cancer survivors. Plus by wearing the wristband you, like Zac, can bring awareness to this important cause and tell stupid cancer exactly what you think of it.

Obama rocks some Zef hair

April's issue of Glamour magazine had a page of weird photoshops of political people mixed with celebs. Thanks to Kerry for scanning their shop of Obama with Zef hair:



I was not content though with seeing just the old style, so I made this one for comparison:



Which Zac Efron hair suits Obama better?

I am a Cali Boy - Long and Swoopy
20(76.9%)
My Hair is a Raging Ocean - Short and Ridiculously Spikey
6(23.1%)

I've decided that this is his Spider-Man jump



Can't you just tell he's prepping his web-shooters?

I bring it up because Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, said this to the Washington Post Comic Riffs blog when asked whom he would cast in the reboot:

"I don't know enough young actors," he acknowledges. "I'm not up on them. I did see Zac Efron on the Oscars show -- he'd definitely be fine."


If I were comic book nerd/Spider-Man fan Zef, I'd be doing Spider-Man jumps for joy all over the place.

Of course, none of this means he'd actually be cast. And I'm still not convinced it is even a good idea, having no idea what the script is like nor the director's vision for it. Maybe most importantly is whether it would involve going back to high school which is, at this point, a step back.

But no matter what, it's pretty cool that Stan Lee called out Mr. 'It would be a dream come true to be Spider-Man' Efron.



I'm posting this just cause the colors are kind of right and if you tilt your head a bit and squint just soooooo... you can maybe see an unmasked Spider-Man, lol:
