New ! Don Jon- Trailer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)

 

Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to "pull" a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she's determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt Trailer Addict

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Don Jon" is the total opposite of the guy he played in the now clasic film "(500)Days Summer", which already makes it one of the more interesting films to see this summer.

"E. Gordon Gee's Comments Aren't The Most Offensive Thing About Him"


 (Dan Wetzel: Yahoo Sports)

"Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee's entire existence is centered on money (raising and spending) and attention (drawing it in from adoring crowds and dishing it out on wealthy alums). There is little else. 

....The man craves attention and through the years has proven he'll pretty much say or insult anything and anyone (including himself) if he thinks it might get an extra chuckle, especially if that might one day lead to an extra donation or positive word in the media.

...It's why seemingly half the schools in America have hired him, including Ohio State, twice. And it's why he'll almost assuredly keep his job despite his latest wild comments – that ranged from "joking" about "damn Catholics", illiterate Southerners, the sub-standard "integrity" of universities in Kentucky and even the hard-wired greed of Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany.
The comments weren't what you'd normally consider the material of a university president, but when did that ever matter with Gee?

.....The man craves attention and through the years has proven he'll pretty much say or insult anything and anyone (including himself) if he thinks it might get an extra chuckle, especially if that might one day lead to an extra donation or positive word in the media.

"The comments I made were just plain wrong," Gee told the Associated Press after a tape of him speaking to the OSU athletic counsel in December materialized. He'd already been called in front of the school's trustees in January and given a "remediation plan" as penance."

"In no way do they reflect what the university stands for," Gee said. "They were a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate."

...No doubt some will be offended. Some won't. Feel as you wish. Unless there is a groundswell of anger that threatens E. Gordon Gee's ability to raise money for Ohio State, he won't be replaced. That's the way the world works."

Large Professor tells The Combat Jack Show that Nasir Jones' classic beat down of Jay-Z was a tad bit  harder: “Ether” was watered down. How it came out, it was watered down. There were a lot of darts that were getting ready to be shot back. Nas is a thinker, man; he’s a crucial thinker. He thought it out and he got it right. I’ll leave it at that.   (As seen on Complex TV)

Ricky Schroder Admits to Crushing on Erin Gray During Silver Spoons Reunion


Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

(Today)

"On Wednesday morning, stars Ricky Schroder, Joel Higgins, Erin Gray and Alfonso Ribeiro regrouped for a reunion on TODAY and recalled just what made their on-screen bond so successful." Read more here

Seriously, how could you not crush on Erin Gray? 

She was on Silver Spoons AND  Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

 She had dads, sons and sci-fi geeks on lock!



So whichTV/film actor/actress did you have a crush on gowing up?

Maria Menounos and Her Boyfriend Kevin Returns to Howard Stern (2013)

When it comes to couples, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner, along with  Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon usually comes to mind when it comes to entertainment couples who really seem like  being with each other.

Another couple that should be added that list, is Extra host Maria Menounos and her boyfriend of 15 years Kevin Undergaro, whom have become one of the best repeat guests on the Howard Stern Show in recent years.

Much like Will & Jada Pinkett- Smith were open about their relationship,  including sex last decade, Maria and Kevin are in that same category.

The only difference is  Kevin is the one usually forcing the sex and relationship talk, while lovely Maria cautiously plays along, (when she's not yelling at Kevin to stop, laughing like a goat or saying nooooo-uhhh).



Here's hoping their future reality show will not destroy their relationship, because thanks to Howard Stern, Maria and Kevin has some of the best couple's therapy  talk on air.

Oprah and Tyler Perry Stops by "LIVE with Kelly and Michael"

The Young and the Restless Tribute Show to Jeanne Cooper/Miss Chancellor (Full Episode)



While A clip show of Jeanne Cooper's work  as Katherine Chancellor on Young And The Restless would have been a fitting tribute, Y&R when above and beyond the traditional retrospective by having cast members talk about their experiences with the award winning soap veteran who died from COPD. 

Starting off with a touching by her children, led by her son Corbin Berson , followed by tales from her cast-mates (including Eric BraedenBilly MillerJoshua MorrowKristoff St. John,  Melody Thomas Scott,and  Jess Walton),  the Y&R special for  Jean Cooper was more than a trip down memory, it was fitting tribute to a true dame who loved her family, off stage and on as well as her fans. 

The only drawback from the special is that you wanted to hear more stories about this grand actress, but there just wasn't enough time ( Since the Bell family created "Y&R and "The Bold and Beautiful,"  I'm sure BB wouldn't have minded being pre-empted for Jeanne Cooper). 

Another fitting tribute to Jeanne Cooper would be if CBS chief Les Mooves would  re-air the special  Y&R episode one night later this week, ( since sweeps is over, the only thing that eye network is showing reruns of 2 Broke Girls.)

Although The Young and The Restless is a daytime show, it is  still part of the CBS family, a family Jeanne Cooper  dedicated almost 40 years of her life to creating art as well as a revenue stream that Moonves and past CBS presidents has enjoyed since the 1970s.  

Showing the Jeanne Cooper tribute at night would not only reaffirm that daytime TV is just important to CBS as night time TV, but it would also give a nod to Hollywood's golden past; a past that seems to dim faster each year as yet another legend from that era passes away.

Kate Upton Upset Over Victoria's Secret Lingerie Photo

(Daily Mail) 

"Kate Upton is 'furious' Victoria's Secret used photos of her in their catalogue.

The blonde pin-up is said to be shocked to discover old images of her posing in the brand's black Body bra gracing the pages of the lingerie brand's new catalogue - reportedly without her permission, reports the New York Post.
Kate, 20, is seen wearing a black Body by Victoria bra on the back of the newest Victoria's Secret catalogue.

The photos surfaced online on Tuesday much to the 20-year-old star's surprise since she was branded too 'obvious' looking to model their underwear in 2012, after a spokesperson insisted they would never use her."

Dave Chappelle Returns for ‘Inside The Actors Studio’ 250th Episode



" (James) Lipton and (Dave ) Chappelle’s relationship took root with the first appearance of the comedian as a guest, Lipton said, adding that on that initial show “he [Chappelle] had flown from Yellow Springs, where he lives — and his plane had been delayed.”


“Our audience stayed. Seven hundred fifty people didn’t move. And we started at about ten-fifteen, and we finished at one-thirty in the morning. And I’ve never seen happier people in my life. Nobody moved. Chappelle’s a genius.”
For the 250th, Lipton said that his conversation with Dave Chappelle runs about an hour and “We have a nice chunk of that in the show, where he describes his experience on the show and our friendship, which is very close since then, and he picked his favorite moment from the show and his favorite category of guests, which is comedians, and that triggers a package of retrospective moments that is, I think, just incredible.”

Overall it was a pretty solid interview.

Will Smith, Jaden Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff & Alfonso Ribeiro Dances & Raps on The Graham Norton Show



Although this sounds like place that Bill Hader's Stefon would recommended on SNL (This club has everything Will Smith, Jaden Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff, CARLTON from the Fresh Bel-AIRE!) this foursome actually happened.

As the Smiths are now overseas promoting "After Earth,"  the father and son duo whom have  rapping separately on Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman,  joined forces on Graham Norton's BBC Show with Will's long time musical partner Jazzy Jeff and his former long time TV partner Alfonso Ribeiro to spit some rhymes  as performed the "Carlton Dance"  and Tonto Jump on it in the U.K!

Add that with The Hangover 3's Heather Graham on the couch and that's a pretty good show!

It Was Called Revenge of The Jedi??? (Teaser Trailer 1983)



Who knew "Return of the Jedi" was originally called "Revenge of The Jedi?"

I don't know. 

I kind of  like "Revenge better", it feels more like a Bruce Lee flick; but maybe that's  why George Lucas changed it "Return" because doesn't sound as aggressive than "Revenge." 

Plus, it was  probably easier to push Happy Meals at McDonald's with a nice guy named Luke Skywalker "returning" to find his friend Han Solo than an angry Jedi named Luke Skywalker 
who want to get  revenge against his absentee father, Darth Vader who cut his hand off!
 
(Best "Daddy Dearest" move ever!)

So which title  do you like better?

Bummer! A&E Cancels ‘Intervention’



Probably one of the few reality shows on TV and actually means something, A&E recently announced that they cancelled the reality series "Intervention" after 13 seasons (the final five episodes will be aired starting Thursday, June 13 at 9 PM).

Here's the thing, I know A& E is making a lot of money with "Duck Dynasty" and that's fine, but if I  want to see a bunch of dudes with beards, I will pull up  ZZ Top's  video for "Sharp Dressed Man" on YouTube.

Reality shows like "Intervention" and the now re-canceled "America's Most Wanted" are more than just TV shows,  there are weekly public service announcements.

 "Intervention" allowed you to see how addictions harmed not only individuals but also  families from all walks of life.

There is  a no way, you can walk away from that show and not feel good if the person who recovered or sorrow if they relapsed.

As Duck Dynasty continues to be A& E's #1 show, it will be interesting to see how the network's "REAL" reality shows like "The First 48" and "Beyond Scared Straight" will fair.

Much like how Bravo  has gone from an engaging show like "Inside The Actors Studio" to Real Housewives of Willacoochee," the future of reality shows with depth are a dying breed.

 Here's hoping another network will see the viability of a show like "Intervention" and pick it up, because I can't take another housewife fighting or a listen to a southern uncle than I need subtitles to understand.

Soulful! Quadron with Kendrick Lamar “Better Off” (Avalanche Album)



 Like Danish version of Groove Theory, Quadron  returns with a neo-soul sounding track "Better Off" with Kendrick Lamar, (who sampled the duo's Tiden Flyver”  for “Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

While Lamar is usually the star of the show, its producer Robin Hannibal's soulful tarck and vocalist Coco Maja Hastrup Karshøj's Amel Larrieux like vocals that makes you want to put the song on repeat during your Memorial Day picnic.

My brother said the groove reminded him of  Diamond D, "diggin in the crates" sound during the same period.

Either way, Hit Boy along with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and  Joey Bada$$  are helping to save Hip Hop for a younger generation.
