Two folks traveling on a highway in the Boston area had the (fill in the blank) scared out of them yesterday morning when an unsecured ax flew off the landscaping track they were riding behind and smashed through their windshield.
Luckily, the ax didn’t go all the way through and the head sort of stuck on the dashboard – directly in front of the passenger’s face.
The truck’s driver was fined $200 for not completely securing his load.
They should also make him pay for new pants for both the motorist and the passenger.
Sean Hannity recently had a segment on his Fox News show called “Sympathy for the Terrorists.” Some think that his stance favors one side over the other, to the point where he shouted loudly at the guest who opposed his viewpoint.
For some reason, Russell Brand recorded himself reacting to the segment, tearing it apart bit by bit.
And at the top of it, he said that Hannity “does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film.” Of course, Brand didn’t want to appear “petty” or “trivial.”
Which is good. Otherwise, he might land a show on Fox News, mightn’t he?
It seems like the folks at the Syfy Channel know what they’re doing when it comes to flying sharks terrorizing a major city.
Last year, Sharknado took a funnel cloud filled with sharks and unleashed it on the West Coast. Last night, Sharknado 2 did just about the same thing on the East Coast – this time plopping a bunch of snapping Jaws-like creatures on the Big Apple.
An hour or so after it aired last night, Hollywood Life wondered if it might be the best worst movie ever - “… so bad, it’s good…” is what they had to say.
Ian Ziering, one of the franchise players, hopes there’s a third installment on the way. “Sharkpocolypse Now!” is what he’s praying for.
The Twitterverse went nuts with commentary all night long at #Sharknado2TheSecondOne.
One of my favorite tweets came from the Ocean Conservancy. Check it out. And wait til next summer, I guess.
A three-hour whale watch tour off the coast of Massachusetts turned into an overnight ordeal for 157 passengers the other night.
The whale-watching boat failed to spot some lobster traps about 16 miles out, and got caught up in their lines.
It took until morning to free the boat. The Coast Guard had two ships stationed near the marooned vessel, providing food, water and blankets to the passengers, so except for being at sea a lot longer than they expected, everything ended up okay.
But here’s a lesson for you: whenever something’s labelled a “three-hour tour” and it involves the ocean, you might invoke the Gilligan Rule and stay on dry land.
Wow. What do we have here? Beyonce is a hate magnet. The super star singer can't seem to get a break these days and apparently Kerry Washington is the latest culprit. Now, this is definitely not from the "horse's mouth," but a source at Dish Nation says that Kerry is mad at B for staying with Jay. Peep the un-scientifcal data:
Emmy nominated TV star Kerry Washington has privately ripped the singer for not doing enough to empower young African American girls. The 37-year-old star of the hit ABC show, who's a political activist and outspoken feminist, "hates how Beyonce relies on her body and sexual innuendo to sell records," an insider toldDish Nation.
"Kerry thinks Beyonce should spend less time shaking her booty and more time pushing other agendas, like the value of education and healthy eating, as well as promoting book reading."
"To Kerry, it seems like Beyonce is sending a message to young women that standing by your man, even if he cheats on you, is perfectly acceptable. While Kerry's peers, like Beyonce, exploit themselves for career advancement, she's happy to keep her private life under wraps and let her talent do the talking. Kerry wishes Beyonce would do the same."
Jamie Foxx and Mike Tyson are soon to be linked together forever. During a recent interview, Mike Tyson revealed that Foxx and himself are in discussions for Foxx to portray the former heavyweight champion in an upcoming biopic.
Tyson reveals that "within a year to 18 months" an as-of-yet untitled biopic of his life will begin production with Foxx as the lead actor. According to Tyson, Foxx will portray him through multiple stages of his life with the aid of the same technology that transformed Brad Pitt in 2009's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
Within a year to 18 months, we're going to do the Mike Tyson story and he's going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie's pretty much my age so he can't portray me but they have this new system.
In May, Foxx appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael discussing his interest to play Tyson. According to Foxx, he actually dressed up as Tyson and spent time with the controversial ex-boxer before the two ever agreed to do the film:
I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story. I think that story would be fantastic … and I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson … People were literally coming up asking for autographs. So hopefully, Mike, if you're listening, let's make history.
Tyson says that Martin Scorsece will be involved in the film.
