After What Feels Like Forever, The ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Trailer is Finally Here

Lloyd Christmas (still my favorite movie character name ever) and Harry Dunn stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to finally drop the long anticipated trailer for “Dumb and Dumber To”. There’s really no use writing about the actual scenes in the trailer, because you have to watch it for yourself. Let’s just say I’ve never had more faith in a sequel than I have in this movie. It’s also remarkable how neither of them looked like they’ve aged a single minute in that trailer. The haircuts look the same, and let’s just say Lloyd took his shaving ketchup joke up a few notches in the opening scene in the trailer. Long live the goofballs.

P.S. This trailer gets our seal of approval.

Oh Happy Day – Dumb and Dumber To Trailer Will Be Released This Tuesday on The Tonight Show

Well this is the best news since sliced bread, and I LOVE sliced bread. Dumb and Dumber is one of the funniest movies of all time and is easily the most re-watchable comedy ever. I’ve seen it at least 100 times and find a new favorite scene/line each time. It’s also very cool that they’re releasing it on The Tonight Show. Instead of just a random release before some comedy movie this summer, The Tonight Show release gives it a big movie feel. Plus, anytime you can get Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in a room together, magic is about to happen. I can’t wait for Tuesday, and I can’t wait for November 14th. Throw another shrimp on the Barbie!

Chopped Onions Alert: Jeff Bauman, Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor, Is Engaged to His Pregnant Girlfriend

SourceA man who lost his legs in the Boston Marathon bombings, then helped authorities identify the suspects, is engaged and an expectant father.

Jeff Bauman, 28, and his fiancee, Erin Hurley, 27, told The Associated Press in a recent interview that the baby is due July 14. They don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, and they want it to be a surprise.

“My mom loves it. My dad’s going crazy,” Bauman said. As for himself, “I just want to be a good dad.”

The two have been preparing for the baby’s arrival by painting a nursery in their home in Carlisle. Hurley said Sunday that she and the baby are healthy and her pregnancy is going well. They became engaged in February and together picked out a white-gold engagement ring. She said they plan to marry next year.

“We’ve got a lot going on. So we don’t need to do everything all at once,” she said.

An AP photo of a badly injured Bauman being rushed away in a wheelchair by three rescuers became one of the most memorable images of the April 15, bombings, which killed three people.

He was standing near the finish line waiting to cheer on Hurley as she completed the marathon when the two bombs exploded. Bauman became a hero after he provided a description of one of the suspected bombers from his hospital bed.

Bauman’s memoir on his experiences, called “Stronger,” is out April 8, one week before the anniversary of the bombings.

Is somebody chopping onions in my cubicle this afternoon, because it just got a little watery in here. What a stud. This is such a feel good story, and really one that can’t be explained in words. You never hear about Jeff Bauman going on a crusade against the marathon bombers or lashing out to local newspapers or websites. He just keeps on livin’, man. At 28 and in the prime of his life, Jeff almost got everything senselessly taken away from him, but you’ll never hear him complain about it. He’s too busy being a good boyfriend and eventually one hell of a father. Good for you, Jeff  Bauman. You’re a hero in my eyes.

Monster Blog Wednesday – Favorite TV Character (Current)

This weeks Monster Blog focuses around our favorite TV characters. But wait! There’s a twist. We pick someone who is currently on TV. Either in a new season of his or her show, or in between seasons. That means no Tony Soprano, no Walter White, no Corey Matthews, no Jerry Seinfeld, and no Michael Scott! Not so easy, is it? Without further adieu, here are our picks.

Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson, the uncrowned king of meat and scotch is my pick. Hailing from the hit comedy, Parks and Recreation,  Ron delivers big laughs from tiny lines. A true American who hates Europe, Banks, and the internet, Ron Swanson embodies everything that is manly in this world. He fishes (not for food, but for sport), is a master wood worker (in real life as well), and can play saxophone with the best of em (Duke Silver makes the panties drop). While a softer side of Ron has been known to show through, especially for his new wife and coworker Leslie, Ron always stays stubborn as a mule and tough as nails.

Saul Berenson

I hope you’re noticing the facial hair theme here. Saul Berenson, a.k.a Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, is the heart and soul of the hit show Homeland. In between scenes of Carrie crying and Dana sucking, Saul is the moral compass that keeps the CIA afloat after an incredible number of government shortcomings. Add in the fact that his beard is fantastic, he’s sharp as a samurai sword and he has the best one liners on the show (you are the smartest and the dumbest fucking person I’ve ever met), and you have my favorite character on television today.

Must Watch Trailer – Saving Mr. Banks

Whoa Whoa Whoa! Hold the phone Jiminy Cricket! You mean to tell me that there is a movie coming out starring Tom Hanks that tells the untold story of the production of Mary Poppins the movie? and Tom Hanks plays the great Walter E. Disney? This is the best news i’ve heard about the silver screen since I found out that Dumb and Dumber Too was in production. How do you beat Tom Hanks as Walt Disney? You can’t, that’s the bottom line. The only thing that comes close would be if Clooney played Vince Lombardi in a Superbowl 1 movie.

PS- Love the B.J. Novak casting. Sneaky good actor.

“Dumb and Dumber To” Might Be the Greatest Movie of All-Time

(Source) “Report: Cam Neely Accepts Role as Sea Bass in ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel
Retired hockey players seem to never lose the itch to get back on the ice and play, but Bruins legend Cam Neely is returning to a different passion: acting.

According to ScreenCrush.com and JimCarreyOnline.com, Neely is set to reprise his role as Sea Bass in the long-awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel starring Jim Carrey and Emmy-winner Jeff Daniels.

The sequel to the 1994 comedy hit has been rumored to be in production for years, but only recently did Carrey and Daniels make their involvement known publicly via Twitter.”

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels tweeted a picture from the set of Dumb and Dumber To earlier this week, and I don’t think it’s possible for a human being to be more excited for a movie than I am for this movie. Now it seems Cam Neely will reprise his role as Sea Bass, Milan Lucic could conceivably play his son and we’ll finally get to see Fraida Feltcher in the flesh, courtesy of Kathleen Turner. The Oscars better create a “Best Movie of All-Time” award by 2015 because Dumb and Dumber To is going to deserve it.

If This Picture Can’t Cheer You Up, Nothing Will

Our favorite idiots, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunn, are back. Put another shrimp on the bobby!

P.S. It’s going to be weird seeing Jeff Daniels act so goofy. Will McAvoy is still so fresh in my mind.

If Rooting For Jeff Wagner To Become Mayor of Minneapolis Is Wrong Then I Don’t Wanna Be Right

Politicians these days are good for two things: sending dick pics and making false promises. Not Jeff Wagner. He just wants you to wake the fuck up. He is putting everyone who runs for public office on notice: if you’re not half naked and screaming obscenities in your mayoral commericials then you need to wake the fuck up and get with the times. If he doesn’t win in a landslide I’ve lost hope for this country.
