>> If you didn’t know, Lucasfilm has a lot of hidden Easter eggs between its various films. Disney must have something huge in the works since its major film properties all share the idea of hidden Easter eggs through all their films.




>> The Catalina wine-mixer is no longer the most feared thing in Southern California. This is:

The crew of sailing school vessel Tole Mour and Catalina Island Marine Institute instructors hold an 18-foot-long oarfish that was found in the waters of Toyon Bay on Santa Catalina Island

Holy Shit!

>> Our Long National Nightmare may soon be over, but unfortunately, there is no election happening right away to get rid of the jaggholes who put the government in a shutdown over Obamacare.

>> Work on Batman vs Superman is now ratcheting up and beginning soon with a filming of a crowd scene at a football game. Surprisingly, they are going to have the crowd wear black and gold which is the color of the Gotham City Rogues. This team was featured in the Dark Knight Rises when Bane destroyed after of the stadium. Interesting detail!

>> Other movie news: Dumb and Dumber To continues to film and hear are some recent set shots.

>> Buzzfeed music offers some alternative music choices to the “mainstream”.

>> A fun pop quiz on whether we’re talking about a rapper or a Republican congressman.

>> I never watched the show that much, but in passing, and the crew from that 70’s show got together recently.

>> NBC is still mining for gold in its past with a Remington Steele reboot. God, I used to have the biggest crush on Stephanie Zimbalist.

>> 25 of the whitest things that have ever happened.

>> Supposedly, the casting for Fantastic Four is ramping up. I just wish there were good American actors available to play these roles. Let’s also not forget that the majority of the Avengers are American actors which I think helped its appeal.


Here is the promo for the upcoming new episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which I feel has been steadily improving:

>> Cool story about Aaron Rodgers doing something cool to educate people about the troubles in my home country of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

>> Probably a repost, but doesn’t hurt to read it again: Castle has made several references to Firefly.


SCAR JO is once again the sexiest woman alive and you’d think that’s about right. The Black Widow should be the most beautiful and sexiest assassin alive. Don’t look too deeply into her eyes!

>> Clooney  is getting loony and photobombing Spielberg and Seinfeld. A very interesting star cluster.

>> Raiders fans are bad, but I guess it extends to the Athletics too. Fans be trippin’.

>> Living in a post-Breaking Bad world means having to rely on Homeland to deliver tight, cohesive storylines. So far its a fail. Good acting however. Dana was a prime player last night, but she has struggled against the public backlash who seems to hate her. By the way, Chris Brody is still clueless!
