For the entire week before the Academy Awards, Uggie the dog appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ to gain Oscar buzz for his film ‘The Artist.’ The adorable Jack Russell terrier, who was the real star of the Best Picture-winning silent film, made Oscar picks for Kimmel and was generally one charming pooch. Everybody was happy with the way his appearance went.
Until earlier this week, that is, when an eagle-eyed Kimmel staffer noticed that something was off.
If you’re a child of the ’80s, you might remember ‘Can’t Buy Me Love,’ the Patrick Dempsey high school comedy which hit theaters on August 14, 1987. Smack dab in the middle of the film, Seth Green, who plays Dempsey’s younger brother, strikes a pose which modern audiences would immediately recognize as ‘Tebowing.”
Given his name and his history as a pitchman, it would seem Mr. T would be the perfect person to sell t-shirts. So it is sort of surprising that no one has used him in a t-shirt selling capacity prior to Old Navy putting him in their latest ad campaign. (It’s sort of surprising Old Navy didn’t think of this before, because we’re pretty sure the former A-Team player was available.)
The fine folks at Groupon are offering a 13-day ocean voyage with an extensive deep sea tour of the site where the Titanic wreck lays for the price of $12,500. If that sounds a bit steep, keep in mind that the package’s “value” is $59,870, and it also comes with a ‘Titanic’ DVD signed by Frank Lloyd Roberts.
Frank Lloyd Roberts, you are probably wondering, isn’t that the architect? No, that would be Frank Lloyd Wright. Frank Lloyd Roberts is only the premier Leonardo DiCaprio impersonator in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD.
Today, 3/14, is Pi day. The celebration of everything 3.14159 . . . was founded by eccentric physicist Larry Shaw in 1988. Then, in 2009, the US House of Representatives passed a motion to officially recognize Pi Day. Of course, we recognize Pie Day every day.
Basketball-Fan-in-Chief Barack Obama’s career as a presidential bracketologist got off to a rousing start in 2009 when his pick to win the 2009 NCAA tournament, North Carolina, were indeed crowned champions.
During a talk Sunday at the South By Southwest Festival, ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane confirmed that he’s working on new episodes of the legendary cartoon series ‘The Flintstones.’ Yabba Dabba Doo!
‘Mass Effect 3,’ the third installment in the critically acclaimed sci-fi video game franchise, promised a “definitive conclusion” for the series’ user-generated protagonist Commander Shepard. And although ‘ME3′ only came out last week, apparently enough gamers have gotten to the end of the game fast enough to conclude that its conclusion stinks.
The NCAA basketball tournament is wide-open in a way that no other major American sporting event is. Hence its nickname “March Madness.” But if you were to single out the other distinguishing characteristics of the tourney, they would be the brackets that everyone is so fond of filling out and the fact that a good chunk of the games takes place when folks are supposed to be at work.
The good news is that 67 percent of Americans expect to to get a refund from the IRS this year. The bad news is that much of this money is going to be spent taking care of other debts, rather than be used for something fun.
