Didn’t you think by 2012 we’d all have jetpacks? Well if you have a spare hundred grand lying around chuck it on over to Neiman Marcus and getcho self one. A water-based one. Check it out HERE to see it in action. Is it worth that dough?
A TV show in Brazil recently pulled off a pretty mean elevator prank. First they rigged the elevator with hidden cameras, and waited for somone to get in. Once the elevator was moving, they'd cut the lights for a few seconds. And when they came back on, a little girl in horror movie make-up would be standing next to them . . . and would start SCREAMING. Then the lights would cut out again, and she'd disappear. The girl got in by crawling through a hidden panel. The best reactions are at 1:45, 3:50, and 5:52. But one of the women at 5:05 doesn't seem to fall for it.
This next story comes to us from our comrade Jon Wier, now making a name for himself in Kansas City.
So this morning I saw this story on our local affiliate KCTV about Bigfoot and I thought "Meh" until they started playing the bigfoot audio and thought it was the greatest thing I have heard in a long time. It sounds like a combination of Ralph Kramden from the honeymooners if he was hungover after drinking gasoline.
I’ve posted some isolated ‘bigfoot’ audio clips on today’s blog for your listening and dancing pleasure.
Friend of the show Anna McDonald writes for ESPN, here is her latest article, “One family's first experience with football."
Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo to celebrate turning 20, see the pic on today's blog. She recently guest starred on "Two and a Half Men" and that show is in the news for a different reason now.
Just two years after CHARLIE SHEEN'S infamous meltdown . . . another one of the show's stars has RIPPED the show, and apparently wants out. 19-year-old ANGUS T. JONES recently gave a long video interview to a religious website called "Forerunner Chronicles" . . . and in the middle of it, he expressed moral objections to the show, and suggested that people stop watching it.
Angus said, quote, "Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing . . . he's a non-existent character. If you watch 'Two and a Half Men', please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men'. I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it. "Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth.
People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you, you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television…especially with what you watch."
He also referred to the show as being part of the "plan" of the "enemy," which we assume to be Satan. He said, quote, "If I'm doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan. "You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show."
Obviously, Angus seems to be a very religious person . . . and of course, there's nothing wrong with that. But it's worth noting that as far as we know, Angus hasn't made any moves to separate himself from the show, which has made him an INSANE amount of money.
Two years ago, he signed a contract extension that guaranteed him $7.9 MILLION over two seasons. And just this past May, he accepted a salary bump up to $350,000 per episode. Angus has not commented or elaborated on his "testimonial" . . . and no one from CBS or the show has responded to his remarks.
For what it's worth, "Entertainment Weekly" suggests that Angus could be in violation of his contract, if it included a typical clause that prohibits someone from making disparaging comments about the show.
The thing I don't get is: If Angus thinks the show is immoral and harmful to people . . . WHY IS HE STILL DOING IT? How is that not hypocritical? Did he just come to this realization as he was giving the interview?
