Paul Walker gets a tribute song, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Everyone grieves in different ways, and artist RZA has chosen to mourn for Paul Walker with a song called "Destiny Bends." The Wu-Tang rapper shared the track on SoundCloud along with a message that read in part: "I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art. We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones." [SoundCloud]
  • Walker's movie "Hours" is expected to come out on December 13, and producers say the project is going to arrive in 15 cities in the U.S., as well as on demand, as scheduled. [THR]
  • While "Fifty Shades of Grey" had to push its release date to February 2015, it's now getting down to business: Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were spotted filming on the Vancouver set. One producer hopes that they'll be able to put out both an "R"-rated version of the racy movie, as well as an NC-17 version that should satisfy those looking for a total re-enactment of the book. [NYDN/Collider]
  • Beyoncé tops Bing's list for the most-searched person in the U.S. for 2013, which we bet was from her fans trying to dig up new music. [WSJ]
  • If you can count yourself as one of George Clooney's exes, this has to hurt: The actor tells W magazine that the reason why he's still single is because he has yet to meet the love of his life. [People magazine]

    Here is my theory. 8 year old car, only 32,000 miles, if original tires still on car after doing donuts in parking lot then high speed = tire failure

    • Peace ☮

      You have a good theory there. From the sounds of it, there's not too much left of the car to investigate, tho. I wonder how fast they were going?

    • Walt

      That's a good theory and definitely possible, but on the other hand, a guy who can afford a $400k vehicle and obviously drove it hard probably went through several sets of tires over the years. Doubtful the tires were all that old.

      Hey Peace! How you doing? Tire failure is certainly a possibility. And there really isn't much left of that car. It's pretty much scrap metal at this point.

      The dude had a name. He was his friend and former race car driver, Roger Rodas. He drag raced them into a tree. The car was demolished.

      I didn't know the man's name or I would have said so (not saying in a nasty way:) ).

      Anyway, maybe it could have been something that went wrong with the car, and it can' t be all his fault. Yes, he was speeding, so they say, but what if something went wrong with the car and he lost control because of it. New cars aren't all they cracked up to be. They have problems too. Yeah, I know, I don't have all the facts, and I don't know anything about cars, etc..but it's just a thought. One can't always blame the driver.

      I wasn't trying to sound like an azz to you either. The facts in the accident have changed from a tree to a light pole. 2 different sources. This is what I have found to share with you Vixen.
      The probe now centers on the speed of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by Walker's racing team partner, the spokesman told CNN.

      Earlier, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Cohen told CNN that authorities received a tip Sunday suggesting that another car was at the scene racing the Porsche when it slammed into a light pole and burst into flames.

      But investigators have since ruled out the presence of a second vehicle and the theory that the Porsche was drag racing, a spokesman said Monday afternoon.

      Speed was a factor in the crash, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said. A 45 mph speed limit sign was attached to the light pole knocked down by the Porsche.

      The car, which sold for $450,000 when new, is a notoriously difficult vehicle to handle, even for professional drivers, according to Autoweek magazine. A top driver called it "scary," the magazine reported Sunday. It is powered by a V-10, 610-hp engine.

      Jim Torp, a car enthusiast who was at the charity event that Walker attended before the wreck, said Walker was smiling as he got into the Porsche minutes earlier.

      Torp thought he heard a blast in the distance before the car slammed into a light pole, he said. "What the first explosion was, I don't know if their tire blew up, because it sounded like a tire blew on the car," Torp told CNN.

      Interesting read..
      just a sad thing. Goes to show, one never knows when your number is up. One minute you're out having fun, next you're face to face with death, and in less than a second. .. lights out.

      Thxs for sharing. Good night.
