When you think of Morgan Freeman, what comes to mind? An unbelievable actor, likely his role in ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ and a silky smooth baritone voice in which you could probably listen to for hours. Well, he was on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon this week… you’ve never heard Morgan like this before!
In their 25 seasons, The Simpsons have only ever crossed over once. The crossover happened back in 1995 in their 6th season when the Simpsons decided to hold a Film Festival in which film critic Jay Sherman (the Critic) is invited to be a judge. This fall, Family Guy and Simpsons fans will rejoice and finally bury the hatchet. In the Simpsons season premier, The Griffins from Family Guy travel to Springfield. The trailer for the season opener debuted at Comic Con in San Diego over the weekend.
You may remember THIS popular Ninja Turtles toy from the 90′s which launched little plastic pizzas. Pizzas which can likely still be found under the carpet somewhere in my parents basement.To promote Michael Bay’s new TMNT film, the Ninja Turtles have teamed up with Pizza Hut and brought the “pizza launcher” BACK! This time around, it’s life-size!
The 12-foot-tall pizza launcher and it’s 16-foot rotating cannon will make it’s debut at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend. If you decide to make the trek to this years comic con, I highly recommend doing it with your mouth open. Prepare to have saucy, doughy, meaty, cheesy goodness launched right at your taste buds!
In case you missed this a few weeks back, legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi who’s actually been battling lymphoma for the past few years posted a video on Facebook not only thanking fans for their support but almost assuring us that Black Sabbath aren’t finished yet!
Think I like Peter Griffin even better in real life! This guy looks and sounds exactly like Peter Griffin from Family Guy. Some people are born to be actors, athletes, musicians, doctors… this guy was born to be Peter Griffin!
We all know about the EPIC Drum Battle that went down a few months back between Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and lookalike comedian Will Farrell. NOW… there’s a NEW battle. This time the duel is between Young the Giant and Weezer.
Last month, Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson made an unbelievable catch while playing the song ‘Beverly Hills’. Not only did Wilson catch the Frisbee, he did it mid-song without skipping a beat.
This past weekend, Young The Giant were playing at a festival in Michigan when a Frisbee came sailing in all the way from the back of the venue. Lead singer Sameer Gadhia made a jumping grab which was greeted by cheers comparable to Mario Götze’s game winning goal for Germany in Sunday’s World Cup Final.
Both catches are pretty impressive in their own way. The question is… who’s catch was better?
Now THIS is cool! In a move sure to go down in history books, Zack Danger Brown has raised over $50,000 (and counting) to make a meal which requires barely $10 in purchase costs (Potato Salad). Brown did this through Kickstarter which is typically used to raise money for projects. It would seem Zack’s “project” is one that people have taken pretty seriously. Brown set an original goal of $10 when he started the I’m making potato salad campaign. Word quickly spread like wildfire and he ended up getting support from now over 6,000 people in more than 20 different countries across the globe. With money still flowing in, thoughts are that this is going to be one huge and fantastic potato salad! The only problem being that Zack has never made a potato salad before. Thinkin’ with $50,000, he’ll have a lot of practice.
