Trailer Alert – IT

 

I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't super excited about this remake. The original holds a special place in my heart and I didn't want it to be ruined. Having said that, I am hyped for this movie. It looks scary as shit. Like, wear-a-hoodie-in-the-middle-of-the-summer-just-so-you-can-cover-your-eyes scary as shit. Bring on the clown!

Trailer Alert – IT

Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. Having said that, I’ll be in line for the first matinee of this movie…preferable in a theater with windows….with the lights on.

Rob Gronkowski’s Off Season Rehab Seems to Be Going Well

I love Gronkowski. He’s the only tolerable member of the Patriots that non Patriot’s fans can root for. But if I were a Pats fan, I’d be a little upset with him. Athletes can do whatever they want in the off season. Is it ideal that they train and stay in shape and try to get smarter and stronger? Sure. But if a professional athlete wants to blow off some steam and go to Vegas for a few weeks and get drunk and party with porn stars who are we to tell him no? As long as they’re ready to perform when the season starts, I’m OK with it. The only problem with Gronkowski is that he’s the largest human ever who is apparently made entirely of glass. He had back surgery in college, and has dealt with serious ankle, forearm and now knee issues. Maybe dominating comedy shows and bench pressing comedians is the magical formula. My bet is on Belichick letting him go after the 2014 season.

John Travolta May Be Losing His Mind

John Travolta has exited a kingdom of isolation to make a statement about his now-infamous Idina Menzel gaffe during Sunday’s Oscars.

“I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought … what would Idina Menzel say … ‘She’d say, Let it go, let it go!'” Travolta, who introduced Menzel as “Adele Dazeem,” said via his publicist. “Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy ‘Frozen’ took home two Oscars Sunday night!”

Travolta’s flub was an instant viral smash, spawning fake Twitter accounts (here’s our favorite) and the “Adele Dazeem Name Generator” (HuffPost Entertainment becomes Hubert Edjans). According to E! News, Menzel herself was not fazed by the mistake: “She thought it was so funny. She was like, ‘What are you going to do?'” a source told the website.

HuffPost

Poor Danny. He’s got the eyes of a wet mop now. And he’s definitely not racing for pinks. OK so I was going to do this whole post with Grease quotes but I’ll save that for another day. On the real though (new catch phrase) John Travolta had one job Sunday: talk for 30 seconds and introduce an Oscar nominated singer who’s name was on the teleprompter in front of him. I’m not part of the camp who is saying he should have known her name because I haven’t seen Frozen and I have no idea who Idina Menzel is. But I am part of the camp who expects a professional actor to be able to pronounce a name on a teleprompter correctly. Naturally he just apologized like a normal person and now We can put this whole thing behind us. Oh wait, no he didn’t. He started singing the song of the musician who’s name he pronounced wrong. GOOD.  Love me some John Travolta, but ever since his weird beach dancing commercial I can’t say I completely trust him. He’s losing his mind, and someone is going to reap the benefits.

GQ Magazine Can Go To Hell

Rating The Insane Clown Posse (ICP) as the worst rap group in history was the worst thin GQ Magazine could have done.  Do you have any idea the type of people you are dealing with?  I’m not talking about physical violence, but just the sheer number of loyal fans [Juggalo to the lay person] spells bad news for them.  Now i’m going to come right out and say it, I am a huge supporter of ICP, so this might be bias.  But, I will also disclose that I am a music lover in general.  I have everything on my ipod from The Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack (The original cast in London. Your a loon if you have any other version) to Pantera.  ICP just happens to be a group that I have loved since I was in middle school.  I will be the first to admit that their music is not everyone cup of proverbial tea, and I would never force it upon anyone. But calling them the worst rappers of ALL TIME? That is just crazy. I can guaran-damn-tee that who ever (I know his name, but I won’t give him fame he doesn’t deserve) came up with this list never went to and ICP show, listened to a full ICP album, or even had the decency to find out what they are about.  They just know the mantra behind them and stuck them with this unfitting label. 20 years of music and touring say otherwise to your stupid list.

PS – Ask Berno, someone who has never listened to ICP, if he enjoyed the concert we went to.  Go ahead GQ, ASK HIM!!!
