Hello people!
Please give me an advise. Since I have no TV I watch some shows and news online and I want to save some of them on my laptop. What do you use to download online video? And do you know any website where can I find the most popular TV shows, and the sport events?
Thank you for your help!

I heard Charlie has lost one of his Adult Star Girlfriends, Rachel Oberlin aka Bree Olson. Even though he is acting all spaced out and shit I think she is an idiot for leaving.. he is still loaded and either way a bonus for her carrer. I guess he can easily replacing her as Adult Movie Stars seem to want a piece of him. I mean come on, if she didn't bail for this long his his insane ramblings obviously didn't bother her.

At least for him and us there are still a lot of places to get our hot babe fix on the web!
