Itunes Gift On Facebook

Since I bought my first ipod, ive really been into digging up what I could about them. Its simply a great product and does what its supposed to do in a way only apple can.

Throughout this time, ive really been into facebook. Compared to friendster, its way way ahead of the game. With its simplicity in design and user friendliness, you can never go wrong.

The reason for the two being tied up together in this post is to emphasize the fact that these two amazing entities have joined forces to give us a great bang for the buck!

If you dont have itunes, here's the quick way to do it:

If you have an iTunes Redeem Code, you can create a free account by opening iTunes, clicking on the “iTunes Store” item in the menubar on the left side of the application, choosing your country at the bottom of the page, then clicking the “Redeem” link in the “Quick Links” section in the top right corner of the page.

What you can now do is to have an iTunes Online Gifts directly sent t your friends. Whats even more amazing is tthat you can redeem it immediately after seeing it in your wall.

If you want to have it, head over to itunes store now!

Normally, it is very seldom that I do picture posts here in Celebrity Disease Blog.

But with the massive buzz that swine flu is getting around the net, I cant help but make an exception. I find this picture a bit disturbing as it is entertaining. Im pretty sure this is the mother of all swine flu. This is all where it started.

(Photo credit goes to the blog I forgot to take note of. Sincerest apologies.)

Now you know where it all cam from. . .

Famous People with Schizophrenia
at Celebrity Disease Blog

There are relatively quite few famous people with Schizophrenia. This is perhaps because this disorder affects people mostly in their young adulthood stage. Too young and too immature to gain worldwide accomplishment worthy of recognition. However, I managed to get a list of celebrities with Schizophrenia.

This celebrity disease is diagnosed by looking at both behavioral patterns and past history of the patient. Doctors will usually look for signs and symptoms that the patient may possess. This includes the following: social withdrawal, depersonalization (the feeling of looking at self as unreal), loss of hygiene, loss of appetite, delusions, hallucinations and the sense of being controlled by outside forces.

One FYI from this celebrities with diseases blog before we continue: Ever knew the difference between delusions and hallucinations? Delusion is a false belief (ex. if you believe you are Jesus Christ, Hitler or anyone with high disposition, you are delusional). Hallucination is a a false belief coupled along with the use of senses. (ex. If you are hearing things, seeing things, or even tasting things which arent there at all, you are hallucinating). That's your FYI tidbit for today's post. Dont you just love it when your blogger is a nurse? ;)

Ok, Back to Famous people with Schizophrenia. I searched high and low over the internet to provide you with this information. Fortunately, I did find something that might feed your curiosity.

Here they are:

  • James Beck Gordon (Jim Gordon) - Famous drummer who played with John Lennon, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, the Everly Brothers, the Beach Boys, Judy Collins, Joe Cocker, Frank Zappa, Duane Allman, Carly Simon, Jackson Browne, and Joan Baez until schizophrenia took hold.
  • Syd Barrett - Pink Floyd member until 1968.
  • Tom Harrell - Famous Jazz musician.
  • Eduard Einstein - Albert Einstein’s son.
  • Meera Popkin - Broadway star (think Cats and Miss Saigon).
  • John Nash - Perhaps the most famous of this list of celebrities and famous people with schizoprhenia. He was a Mathematician, Noble Prize winner, and subject of A Beautiful Mind.
  • Alexander “Skip” Spence - Member of the 1960’s rock band Moby Grape as well as Jefferson Airplane.
  • Lionel Aldridge - Former defensive end for the Green Bay Packers.
  • Peter Green - Founder of Fleetwood Mac.
  • Bob Mosley - Another member of Moby Grape.
  • Jack Kerouac - Beat generation author.
  • Rose Williams - Tennessee Williams’s sister.

That's it guys! Hope you had this one booked. Tune it for more list of famous people who share your disease. They may accomplish something that was worthy of recognition but they are not at all less susceptible to anyone's disease. Hope you enjoyed this post about Famous people with schizophrenia.

At of the time of this writing, CDC reports a total of 109 cases of swine flu all over the United States. The state with the highest incidence is in New York with 50 cases, followed by Texas with 26 and California with 14.

With that 14 cases of swine flu in California, would you ever bet your favorite celebrity would be on that list at all?

So I guess the "keen-ness" in me got a hold of myself pretty well. Here's my list of top 7 celebrities who are likely to have swine flu.

1.) Nicole Richie

Being a nurse at the same time gives you priveleges like being able to spot people who are likely to get sick of a terminal illness in the future, more like a medical horoscope if you will. The very instance I heard about the Swine Flu Scare, one picture got into me directly: Nicole, Nicole, Nicole. She blasts off as number 1 in our list.

2.) Pete Doherty

This "Libertine" frontman and Academic Buff gets his notch as the number two on our list just because of his appearance. He's been rumored to have a lot of "after gigs" which include coke, MJ's and everything in between. Better watch yourself mate!

3.) Elizabeth Taylor

She has recently been rumored to have chills and slight fever lately. Being one of the most beautiful women who ever walked on this planet doesnt spare anyone, not even elizabeth taylor from being infected with swine flu. As for the age factor, older people generally have lower resistance to viruses. Be careful Elizabeth! BTW, she's on twitter! Follow her @DameElizabeth

4.) Lindsay Lohan

One of the obvious trademarks of being immuno-compromised is having an externally visible signs of excessive weight loss maybe due to anorexia or other eating disorders. For this reason, the TMZ favorite, Lindsay builds our list at number 4.

5.) Tara Reid

One of the girls that's always on the "Drunk Celebrities List" on various websites gives her the right to be the top 5 of our search for the celebrities who are likely to have swine flu. With so much alcohol in her system, the kidneys cannot function as well as a normal, sane person's kidney would. This often leads to blood composition abnormalities including white blood cells which act as the body's defense against viruses. Tara, you're hot but people are sick of you. :)

6.) Mariah Carey

Mimi lodged in to our top 6 just because of being so fat over the years. I could still remember her peak years where she was just a hot and gorgeous. But now, for carrying around so much fat deposits, she's on the limelight once again. Altough Swine Flu cannot be transmitted from eating pork, it is definitely contagious from person to person contact. She's got a concert right? Well, goodluck with that!

And the Swine Flu Queen........... Drum Roll Please.

7.) Kristie Alley

In her younger years when she co-starred on the hit T.V. show “Cheers” Kristie Alley never used to be overweight. Recently, she has been packing on the pounds - so much so that Jenny Craig has hired her to be their official weight loss spokesperson. Her weight loss has been gradual, too gradual for anyone.

Much like chicken pox, swine flu cannot be contracted from eating pork. But this has got to be insane. She might as well add Tamiflu (the medicine for swine flu) to her barrage of weight loss pills.
