Who doesn’t hang out with their palls on the weekend, toss back a few cold ones, then jump on YouTube to track down some old cartoon intros? I just stumbled across a few endings.
This kid is going to tear Hollywood a new one. Once his poison ivy clears up.
One of the most famous voices in popular culture is no more. Don LaFontaine died on Labor Day. The above video makes it obvious that he was a super nice, super generous guy. He would even record voice mail messages for his fans. From CBS News:
Don LaFontaine, the man who provided the sonorous voice for more than 5,000 movie trailers, died Monday at age 68.
LaFontaine died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of complications from a collapsed lung. He had been taken to the hospital Aug. 22 with a blood clot in the lung.
Trailers, the greatest part of going to the movies, will never sound the same again. RIP Don.
Toy mad scientists Kid Robot have released their run of 24 limited Simpsons mini-figures. They are all cute and they are all for sale here in the wicked annoying “blind packs,” simply meaning, you don’t know which one you are getting. Like a blind date that you pay for and then can resell on eBay. Which is probably where I’ll get my Itchy and Scratchy figures. More pictures after the jump.
I don’t know guys. I really have nothing to say about Star Wars Halloween costumes. I guess they’re cool. I just really wanted to post this unsettling, sort of haunting picture of a young girl wearing the Ahsoka Headpiece. Let that soak in. Yeeaah. Then buy your own here, you trannies.
First off, Bruce has scored an original song for the closing credits of Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler. The film focuses on a man (played by motorcycle boy himself Mickey Rourke) trying to set his life right. Sounds like uncanny Springsteen material to me. According to Aronofsky’s blog:
Bruce Springsteen wrote a beautiful original song for the closing the film. called THE WRESTLER it is a wonderful acoustic piece. makes me choke up every time i hear it. he really captured the spirit of the film and mickey’s character in the piece.
Secondly, Springsteen (who made his last cameo in High Fidelity) is written into the script of Apatow’s seriocomic Funny People. No word yet as to whether it is final or not and sources have said the small part could be played by any aged rock star, but he is pulling for Bruce. So am I.
I personally didn’t get blasted yesterday to celebrate Not Working. But I’m sure most of the planet did. So enjoy this Maury throwback and forget about that last Rum N Coke you should have turned down.
