This Time, Kate Winslet's the Queen of the World

Kate Winslet, the actress who rocketed to fame as Rose in Titanic, taped an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls recently.

She did some flying, and some climbing, and at one point, recreated a famous scene from the movie.

No, not the charcoal drawing one.

The one where she's at the bow of the boat, telling Jack that she's flying.

She does the same thing in this clip, only this time, she's leaning over a rope or a cable on the side of a mountain...

Prepare for an adventure made for the movies.

Keep Your Enemies Close

There's a lot of buzz about Johnny Depp's upcoming film, Black Mass, and there's a new trailer out for it.

He's playing Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters of our time, a kingpin in the Boston crime scene before becoming a fugitive for years.

Johnny's performance looks pretty intense, and he's surrounded by a pretty amazing supporting cast, not the least of whom are Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon.

Check it out.

How Can There Be a New Dr. Seuss Book?

Dr. Seuss, the man behind "The Cat in the Hat," "Green Eggs & Ham" and so many other childhood classics, passed away almost 25 years ago.

So when you hear there's a "new" Dr. Seuss book, you sort of scratch your head, right?

Story is, the Doc wrote it in the late 1950s and tossed it into a box. Someone just found the book in the box, and the book in the box is now on the charts...

Sorry, sort of got into a rhythm there.

It's called "What Pet Should I Get?"

The folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! thought maybe they could present the new old work in a more modern vein, so they invited Tyler the Creator to rap the words - dressed, for some reason, as the Cat in the Hat.

Watch it, and see if it pains you as much as it pains me.

All This Over a Stroller

So there's some controversy afoot about an ad for a high-end baby stroller company called Bugaboo.

It features a model in a pretty small running outfit - almost a barely-there swimmer's two-piece - pushing a stroller with her own two-year-old in it in front of her as she jogs.

Some folks are slamming the ad for promoting an unrealistic body image for moms.

Others opine that the model looks anorexic.

And not a word about the stroller. I can't imagine that was Bugaboo's intent.

Take a look at the picture. What do you think? Does it make sense to you, or not?

Most Expensive Selfie Ever?

Okay, these stories keep popping up.

There's the woman taking the selfie with the lion that ends badly.

Then the woman taking the selfie with the bison that ends badly, but not as badly as the lion selfie.

And now this. A guy in San Diego decided he needed a selfie with a rattlesnake.

Go back and read that again.

Yes he did.

And yes, exactly what you thought would happen happened. The rattlesnake bit him. Not for any particular reason except that's what rattlesnakes do when you bother them.

So he ended up in the hospital, and reportedly used up two hospitals' supply of antivenom.

Which ended up costing him a whopping... well, just look at the bill.

Happy Pottermas, Harry!

Today marks Harry Potter's 35th birthday, according to his creator, JK Rowling.

And what better way to celebrate the beginning of his 36th trip around the Sun than with a special greeting from his old friend, Ron Weasley.

Okay, it's not really Ron.

It's Simon Pegg, playing Ron, on The Tonight Show.

Actually, playing a drunken Weasley.

Enjoy anyway...

"Are You Ready for This, Scully?"

Fans of The X-Files have been waiting for the return of The X-Files for years.

With the announcement that the show was returning to Fox in 2016, said fans went a little nutty.

Nutty that it's happening, and nutty that they have to wait until this coming January.

So this week, Fox gave the fans a little tease.

A 17-second tease, to be precise, about five of which feature Mulder and Scully.

Here you go. And try to contain yourself...

Crown of Clowns for July 30, 2015

Today’s Crown of Clowns goes to one Kylie Mullane!
 
Kylie is in a little trouble because she just slapped the crap out of her 18 year-old daughter Ashley. And yes Ashley is the one who called the cops after she got the backhand from mommy dearest. But here is why…why Kylie lost her mind and smacked her daughter…it was because her little girl flushed her weed!  You see, Kylie had been out buying some groceries and returned home to find that her gilggle grass was missing and so she flipped out. Her daughter Ashley then said, I flushed it down the toilet and “BAM” she took one across the choppers.
 
MY POINTS:  
  1. Wait…did I say the mother was the clown?...I can I change my mind!   I kid…I kid! Kylie I fully understand having teenagers in your home makes you want to smoke your brains out, BUT let’s not resort to physical violence.
  2. Kylie, take a lesson from our very own Tony Russell…just tell your kids you need it for THE GLAUCOMA!
  3. OR Kylie you could just do what 98% of all parents do…TEACH YOUR KIDS TO SAY NO…AND THEN HIDE YOUR DANG WEED in the top of your closet!

Lion on the Loose

Folks in Milwaukee report seeing a big cat prowling the neighborhood.

One woman managed to get a video of it.

They're calling it the Milwaukee Lion - clever, don't you think?

There are all sorts of theories on it. The two biggest:
 
(1) Could be a young African lion purchased as a pet and let loose.
(2) Could be a cougar, as cougars are becoming more comfortable in the Midwest.

Folks at the Milwaukee County Zoo checked - all their lions are accounted for.

 

Here's some fun news. The Milwaukee Lion has a Twitter account. And he's having some fun.

Duck... No, Really, Duck

One of the coolest things about America's Got Talent is when they stumble upon someone who's got a fresh take on an old talent.

For instance, ventriloquism. Guy talks for himself, and his puppet.

Great. You don't often get the sense that the puppet's real.

But you do with this guy - his name is Paul Zerden, and his puppet is a baby.

A cantankerous little fellow who wants a bedtime story, but doesn't like scary things, so Little Red Riding Hood's wolf has to be replaced by a yellow fluffy duck.

Very clever routine, and very nicely rewarded at the end too. Check it out.
 

Congratulations Paul Zerdin (and child) on getting Marlon Wayans' #GoldenBuzzer!
