Miley Cyrus Flaunts Colorful Braids in the Big Apple

It’s always interesting to see how her look changes, and Miley Cyrus opted for some bright hues in her hair on Saturday night (August 3).

The “Wrecking Ball” babe went out to dinner at Nobu restaurant with a few friends, showing off her neon-dyed braids and sporting a lacy white top and denim shorts.

Meanwhile, medium Melissa Bacelar told press that Miley consulted her following the death of her dog Floyd earlier this year.

“Floyd just wanted to let Miley know that there was nothing she could have done. That even if she was at home she couldn't have stopped it. He was just a free spirit, his life with her was amazing, she was a great mom to him. They always had a good time together. The coyote thing wasn't his favorite but he knew there was nothing he could do.”

Meet “Zombie Ed”

Meet “Zombie Ed”
I always like taking a look at the indie horror scene. For instance, Zombie Ed from Brain Damage Films. It sounds like a slacker zombie comedy, basically. Read on the for the synopsis, links to buy, and the trailer.

Loser Ed has a lame job, a beater car, a crappy apartment and no hope of a girlfriend. Ed doesn’t think things could get any worse for him until the day he woke up and found he had Gone Zombie. Can Ed become the zombie he was born to be?

The film stars William C. Cutting, Kelly Petering, Trista Robinson, Myles Mclane, Melissa Bacelar, Kim Sønderholm, Pedro Mendoza, Tom Nyman, Marcus Proctor, and Devorah Lynne Dishington (name of the week nominee!).

Buy the DVD on Amazon or at Brain Damage’s website.
