Hosts & Shows
Sadly, the Colbert Report came to an end last night. Stephen Colbert will pick up where David Letterman left off on the Late Show on CBS in 2015. This wasn’t just a series finale though… NO, in true Colbert fashion, the man went out with a bang! Colbert promised last nights finale would be his BEST episode yet and didn’t disappoint, bringing in a ton of celebrity brass including James Franco, Jeff Daniels, Barry Manilow, Bill Clinton, Bryan Cranston, Patrick Stewart, his good friend Jon Stewart and… BIG BIRD to sing him off before getting in Santa’s Sleigh and taking off… to the moon?

What started out as a goofy movie idea by James Franco and Seth Rogen, a couple bros who are no stranger to oddball humour with past movies like Pineapple Express and This Is The End has turned into a threat to national security. Sony Pictures Entertainment was hacked this week leading up to the Christmas day release of Franco & Rogen’s new movie The Interview which plot sees the pair hired to assassinate North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. This has ticked off Kim Jung supporters who have promised 9-11 style attacks if Sony goes ahead with their Christmas day movie theatre release.

Nelson Mandela – Former South African President, anti-apartheid revolutionary, philanthropist, human rights activist… one of the most known athletes in the world… wait… WHAT?!! Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier was attending an event on the anniversary of Mandela’s death when he got a little flustered and answered a question about Mandela’s legacy and his influence on Bernier, if any. Bernier answered thusly…
Bernier apologized for his brain fart after, saying “I’m embarrassed. I didn’t mean to offend him or his legacy. I got flustered with the red carpet and I was nervous. I think everyone makes mistakes and that was me that night.”
Fair enough. A little piece of advice for next time though, if you’re going to attend an event, it’s probably best to look up the guy who the event is honouring first.
That said, the Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender wasn’t completely wrong… I guess.
Rolling Stone did a pretty cool article with Rivers Cuomo of the band Weezer recently for their “Expert Opinion” column where Rivers gave his opinion of popular music like Rush’s Limelight which he explained was a big hit when he was growing up but didn’t really care for because he thought the song was more for Bass and drum lovers and the guitar didn’t have enough distortion. Rivers goes on to claim Limelight is now his favourite Rush song. He also spoke about covering Nirvana in an all-Nirvana set Weezer played back in 1998 under the name Goat Punishment. Rivers, who loves grungy distorted guitar, is a big fan of early Bleach-era Nirvana and claims Nirvana’s Aneurysm is his favourite song to play live!

Not only does this girl absolutely NAIL every impression, she somehow manages to look almost identical to every celeb she impersonates. Watch Lauren O’Brien’s impressions of celebrities (Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Berrymore, Kim Kardashian and more) stuck in traffic. EPIC!!!
