Prehistoric Funk

I just stumbled on this video from a few months ago, but it's perfect for some holiday fun.

One of the hottest songs of the year so far has been Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk."

Turns out the beat and music are very similar to "Walk The Dinosaur," a song by a group called Was (Was Not) in 1987.

Pretty amazing how close these two are.

I wonder if Robin Thicke had anything to do with "Uptown Funk?"

"Can You Smell What the Rock is Officiating?"

So, Nick Mundy from Screen Junkies is a huge fan of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Over the years, they've developed an actual friendship. Enough so that the rest of the crew at Screen Junkies was able to get The Rock to help out when they wanted to pull a prank on Nick.

Well, not really a prank. It was a surprise wedding.

Not only did The Rock agree, he decided he wanted to be the wedding officiant, so he went and got ordained and registered with the state of California.

Check out the footage - it's actually pretty cool.

"Nobody Sees It, Didn't Happen"

Trailer # 2 has been released for Black Mass, the story of Boston's most notorious wanted man, Whitey Bulger, starring Johnny Depp.

Johnny's unrecognizable in this one - as he is in most of his films.

But funny thing, he does call to mind two other actors.

First, Jack Nicholson's character in The Departed.

Second, and only in one of the shots in the sunglasses, James Spader's character in The Blacklist.

What do you think?

The most feared, most wanted, most notorious gangster in U.S. history. Watch Johnny Depp in the exclusive new #BlackMass trailer.

Dick's Still Got It

Dick Van Dyke's a song-and-dance man at heart.

Sure, he's an actor and comic too, but deep down inside, he's a song-and-dance man.

So it's not surprising to see him moving quite well - especially given that he's 89 years old - in this video for Dustbowl Revival's song, "Never Had to Go."

He's still got his comic chops too.

Dave Grohl - The 5th Beatle

Music fans in London got a treat on Saturday night.

Paul McCartney was in concert. Like that's not enough.

But, he invited Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters on stage with him to assist with a Beatles classic, "I Saw Her Standing There."

Couple of observations...

(1) Paul's voice is holding out pretty well for a guy about to turn 74.

(2) Dave and Paul together is a very cool collaboration. And I would love to see more of them!

Thank You for Your Service

It's Memorial Day, a time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.

We should all the take the time to stop and say thank you to those who've gone before us.

And let's not forget to say thanks to those that are still here.

This amazing video is from a year ago, but it remains poignant.

Runners in San Jose, California were participating in a charity race benefitting the military.

A 95-year-old veteran named Joe Bell set up a chair in front of his home, and sat in his old uniform tunic and cap to watch the racers pass.

And before long, the race was all about Joe, as the runners came up to him and shook his hand to thank him for his service.

Touching.

The sight of a 95-year-old veteran cheering on runners in a military charity race in San Jose triggered a spontaneous show of patriotism that captured the nation's attention.Joe Bell was waving at the runners when suddenly he became the one being honored. One by one, participants ran over to Bell, shaking his hand and thanking him for his service.The race benefited the Pat Tillman Foundation, set up in honor of the fallen Army Ranger and San Jose native.Watch KTLA's video here: http://ktlane.ws/1kwcgo9

Who's Got the Dramamine?

The folks at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California have a new roller coaster that could be perfect for you - if you're a daredevil.

It's called Twisted Colossus, and as advertised, it does things that other coasters don't. Or can't. Or both.

It's a hybrid steel-and-wood double-track coaster, and the folks at Theme Park Review call it "insane."

That's the ride itself, not the riders - although that may also be accurate.

Check out this amazingly scary video. And let me know - would you ride in the front seat?

Would you ride it at all?

Twisted Colossus REAL POV! OMG! Insane!!!

OMG! Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain is absolutely out of control! This ride does things no other roller coaster has done! You HAVE to see this video! Who wants to ride?

What the Other Late Night Talk Hosts Did

Did you wonder what the other late night talk hosts did to mark David Letterman's retirement?

Earlier this week, we posted Jimmy Kimmel's tribute. That was very special.

On the night of Dave's last show, Conan O'Brien did his regular show for 35 minutes, and when the clock hit 11:35PM, he and his guest, Patton Oswalt, urged people to go and watch Dave's show. Pretty cool - and watch what they did afterwards!

 
James Corden, the new host of The Late Late Show that until Wednesday followed Dave, sang a special tribute song to Dave with the help of a heavily-bearded Sting. Also pretty cool...

Letterman's Very Last Top 10 List

When you think of David Letterman, one of the first three things to come to mind has to be his nightly Top 10 lists.

And what better topic for his last Top 10 than the Top 10 Things I've Always Wanted to Say to David Letterman.

And who better to pronounce these than good friends to Dave and his program, like Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Peyton Manning, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Barbara Walters and Alec Baldwin.

What a way to wrap up this tradition.

JWoww Delivers a Smackdown

Jenni Farley - aka JWoww from Jersey Shore - took to Instagram to talk about pictures of herself in a bikini.

Someone snapped and published a bunch of pictures of her at a pool in a bathing suit. She was with her daughter and her fiance.

People being what they are - sometimes pretty stupid and rude - they made comments about JWoww's body, calling her flabby and referring to her "cellulite-ridden caboose."

Others would have curled up in a corner and cried a while

But this is JWoww, after all, one of the toughest young ladies on the Eastern seaboard.

Check out what she has to say... And tell me if you feel like standing up and cheering...
 
 

I want to sit here and say that I'm embarrassed by these pictures but honestly I'm not. I'm a new mom that loves to work out but also loves food as well. I was at my girlfriend @joeidfox wedding at an all-inclusive resort and decided to indulge and have the best time of my life with my daughter at a pool. I also decided to pick a wedgy (which is a pretty amazing photo in itself). But at the end of the day I am not perfect and neither is my body... And to make it worse someone decided to sell even more awkward photos of me on vacation with my family So tabloids can get a nice laugh and write mean things... I will always try to eat healthy and take @310nutrition supplements and consistently work out But I'm also a human and I love being me and I love my life I will never try to follow the trend of being stick thin I follow the trend of what I love in life... And what I love is me Everyone love yourself and consider yourself #flawless ????
