Doctor Doom Leaked!

Sci-fi geeks are burning up Twitter and other social media platforms with pictures of the new Doctor Doom from the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.
Couple of questions here:
  1. Does the original Fantastic Four merit a do-over? I think not.
  2. Isn’t Doctor Doom a super villain? So why does he look like a cross between Dorothy’s Tin Man and Sir Alec Guinness’s Obi Wan Kenobi?
Take a look – maybe you’ll see something I’m missing.

The Phoenix Mayor?

Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.

Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.

Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.

Statistically, that’s dead even.

Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.

Peyton Manning: Vicious Taunter?

The National Football League yesterday announced that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was being fined $8200 for taunting Houston Texans’ safety DJ Swearinger during a pre-season game.

Swearinger had been flagged for tackling Wes Welker, who ended up getting a concussion on the play.

Manning got in Swearinger’s face mask and dropped an F-bomb.

Boom. $8200. Manning says he won’t appeal the ruling.

He even called it “money well spent” according to one source.

Those aren’t pads on Manning’s shoulders. Those are major-league chips!

Beyonce's Jedi Mind Trick?

Mathew Knowles, father of Beyonce and Solange, the famous feuding siblings, says everything that’s happened with and between his daughters this summer is nothing more than a Jedi mind trick.

During an interview yesterday, PapaBey was asked about the infamous elevator fight, and about the rumors of the possible royal split of Queen Bey and Jay Z.

“Everybody’s talking about it,” he said. And sales for the On The Run Tour went up, plus Solange’s album sales increased by 200%.

All because of the Jedi mind trick.

In case you don’t know your Star Wars lore, PapaBey’s suggesting that his kids have taken over our minds, and fooled us into doing exactly what they want.

“These are not the droids we’re looking for” after all…

Near Water Much?

Both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the United States are being pounded by heavy surf caused by tropical storms.

To the east, Hurricane Cristobal. To the west, Tropical Storm Marie.

Both are causing much larger waves than normal, to the delight and peril of surfers and body-boarders.

Check out this video showing a large group of people on the California coast, iPhones and cameras held over their heads to capture the ocean’s fury.

And watch what happens when the ocean catches them with their pants down.

Friends Reunion, Sort Of

A lot of fans of Friends have been pining for a reunion show.

This week, Jimmy Kimmel made that wish come true – well, halfway anyway.

A huge fan of the show, Jimmy wrote some fan fiction, casting himself as Ross, and somehow convincing Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to perform it with him on an exact replica of the kitchen set.

It’s fun to see the ladies together – too bad the skit wasn’t a bit funnier…

Chelsea Gets a Wet Send-Off

Among Chelsea Handler’s funniest moments on Chelsea Lately were her famous shower scenes with celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Conan O’Brien.

To get in the spirit, the celebrities would get naked and pixelated with Chelsea, in some flat-out hilarious scenes.

In her farewell to the E! Network, Chelsea was joined in the shower by a fully-clothed and shower-capped Ellen DeGeneres.

And honestly, it’s one of the most hilarious five minutes on TV in a long time – and a great way to retire the bit. Unless of course it happens to come up again in Chelsea’s new Netflix show.

Does it border on brilliant? You know what? I’m going to go ahead and say yes it does!

Check it out – but be warned! It might be a little NSFW.

Are They or Aren't They?

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
Social media is exploding this morning with the Brangelina story.

Just about everyone is
reporting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were secretly married in France over the weekend.

This is not to be confused with the secret wedding they supposedly had last Christmas.

This weekend's news came from a spokesman for the couple, according to most sources.


So, maybe they're married.

Maybe they're not.

And maybe, just maybe, we really don't care anymore...

Hey! Watch My Knees!

A United Airlines flight from Newark to Denver had to divert to Chicago on Sunday when two passengers got into a bit of a brawl over the ability to recline in the economy class of the plane.

A guy used a couple of devices called the Knee Defenders, which prevented the woman in the seat in front of him from reclining her seat. The woman asked that he let her recline. He refused.

The flight attendant told the man that Knee Defenders were not allowed on United flights. The man refused to remove them.

Tempers flared, water was thrown, and the flight had to make an emergency landing in the Windy City.

No charges were filed – the authorities say the whole thing was a customer service issue. You can get the rest of the customers had issues with the two passengers who got them diverted.

Check out the story in this USA Today video. What do you think?

Full House Coming Back? Have Mercy!

According to Variety and a few other sources, people in LaLaLand are talking about bringing Full House back.

Yes, THAT Full House.

It’s just in talks right now, but John Stamos (you remember, Uncle Jessie?) and the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, are spearheading the move.
Still a couple of things to work out:
  • Can we get Bob Saget to play Danny Tanner as Bob Saget, one of the dirtiest (and funniest) stand-ups around?
  • Can we get Dave Coulier to play Joey Gladstone as anything but a stand-up comic?
  • And can we get Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson to play Michelle and Michelle’s evil twin?
That’s a show I could wrap my head around…

Here’s 11 minutes worth of clips labelled “Full House Very Funny Moments.” Tell me how long it takes before you’re forced to hit the PAUSE button…
