Mark Hamill takes genre-bending ride in Batmobile

http://twitter.com/#!/HamillHimself/status/223923346792910848

You know you’re at San Diego Comic-Con when you hear that Luke Skywalker himself has traded in his X-wing for a ride (or at least a brief sit-down) in the Batmobile.

Genre-wise, it’s really not that much of a stretch. True Hamill fans know that the actor was the voice of the Joker in “Batman: The Animated Series” as well as the “Arkham Asylum” and “Arkham City” video games.

@HamillHimself Those people are crazy to let the Joker anywhere near a Batmobile.

Young celebrities aren’t selling millennials on Hillary Clinton

Twitchy has been covering all of Hillary Clinton’scelebrity-studded events from Katy Perry to Demi Lovato to Lena Dunham to John “Bowzer” Bauman and noting that the younger the audience, the less likely they are to be swayed by star power. When Demi Lovato, 23, performed last week at the University of Iowa on behalf of Clinton, hundreds of Twitter followers told their idol they loved her music but she needed to #FeeltheBern.

Matt Drudge asked for “More Dunham, please” after a New York Times piece reported that Dunham hadtold the guests of Richard Plepler, chief executive of HBO, that she was disturbed by how, in the 1990s, the Clintons and their allies discredited women who said they had been sexually assaulted by former President Bill Clinton.

The Associated Press has come to the same conclusion: a three-song Katy Perry concert in Iowa including Clinton’s “theme” song, “Roar,” is about as likely toconvince even first-time voters as Grandmother Clinton’s bogus “Iowa Launch Party” playlist.

They’re catching on. As the New York Times recently reported:

Alexis Isabel Moncada, the 17-year-old founder of Feminist Culture, a popular blog, was not old enough to remember the 1990s, but lately she and her thousands of young female readers have heard a lot about the scandals.

I heard he sexually harassed people and she worked to cover it up, Ms. Moncada said of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. A lot of girls in my age group are huge feminists, and we dont react well to that.

Just When He Had Given Up On Seeing His BFF Again, He Heard A Knock At The Door

There are few things sweeter than a boy and his dog.

That’s why those old movies like “Old Yeller” really hit us in the feels. When a dog dies or is lost, it can be completely devastating for children who consider their pets to be their best friends. One boy whose dog, Jack, ran off had pretty much given up hope he would ever see him again after he’d been missing for eight months.

But that’s not what the universe had in store for these BFFs. A neighbor spotted Jack at a gas station and the rest is history.

Watch as these two have a tearjerking reunion. Get out your tissues!

TODAY

Thank goodness they were able to find each other once again. Here’s to many more years of these two loving each other. Share this with all the dog lovers you know!

That’s ‘Raycist’! Note to Ronan Farrow, MSNBC: ‘Ray LaHood is NOT dead’ [pics]

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/450685527046750209

MSNBC is on a roll!

During today’s edition of “Ronan Farrow Daily,” our favorite Cronkite Award winner reported that Ray Hutchison, husband of former Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, passed away. Unfortunately, MSNBC’s graphics department apparently thinks that when you’ve seen one Ray, you’ve seen ‘em all:

Oof.

Good question. LaHood, you see, is very much alive:

So, how does something like this happen? Here’s one possible scenario:

That actually sounds like something MSNBC’s clowns would do. Ineptitude is the name of the game over there.

Ha!

Oh well. MSNBC can at least hope for a silver lining:

Farrow needs all the help he can get.

Sir Paul McCartney to ‘replace’ Kurt Cobain at 12-12-12 concert

http://twitter.com/#!/tomjbeal/status/278647508161417216

When “Nirvana” is trending on Twitter, you can be sure something bizarre is happening. Rumors broke Monday morning that former Beatles great Paul McCartney will be playing alongside the surviving members of the Seattle grunge band, Nirvana. Nirvana broke into the music industry in the mid 1990s featuring its edgy grunge sound and grainy voice of its now-deceased lead singer, Kurt Cobain.

McCartney will play with Nirvana at a concert to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. According to the New York Daily News, the lineup includes Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Eric Clapton, Kanye West, Roger Waters, Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Joel.

Reactions on Twitter were mixed. Some Tweeters applauded the pairing, while others claimed it was the sign of the apocalypse.

Mock if you wish, because this could be a disaster in 100 ways. But that’s what makes it cool — willing to be uncool. nydailynews.com/entertainment/…

I’m happy about this McCartney/Nirvana thing because it stopped all those 12/12/12 tweets and status updates dead in their tracks.

Settle down. McCartney fronting the Nirvana reunion will not change the world or harm puppies. It’s a once off. Eager to see how it sounds.

And for a little perspective:

If you’re truly upset about McCartney playing with surviving Nirvana members FOR CHARITY, you need more important things to worry about.

A farewell to Haylor: Fans speculate on inevitable Taylor Swift breakup song

http://twitter.com/#!/nickelminaj/status/288430180505092097

Taylor Swift has made a career out of channeling the negative energy from bad breakups into song. That was fine when all of her exes were anonymous high school boyfriends that no one will ever identify. However, now that she seems to be leaving a very public trail of celebrity beaus behind her, it’s getting a little weird.

Nobody cared who the guy was three years ago, but now every new song generates a sadistic guessing game about the inspiration. Can it get worse? We didn’t think so, but then #HaylorBreakupSongTitles started trending following news that she and One Direction’s Harry Styles had split up.

Seriously, people? You’re not going to give the breakup 24 hours before deciding how to immortalize it in song?

On one hand, we feel kind of bad for celebrities who have to deal with this sort of stuff. On the other, we’re starting to wish Taylor would take time off from dating to re-evaluate her priorities like a normal twenty-something. I guess you could say we’re concerned, but mostly we just want to stop writing Taylor Swift breakup posts.

Video Incredibly Shows Massive Whale Protecting A Diver From Shark

I’ve seen one too many shark movies to ever try scuba diving, especially in the open ocean.

But for those crazy enough to swim with the fishes, it’s reassuring to know that there are some friendly creatures around you that are looking out for your best interests. Marine Biologist Nan Hauser has explored the depths of the oceans for decades, but during a recent snorkeling excursion, she experienced something new and incredibly exciting.

While exploring the seas off the Cook Islands, video footage shows a large humpback whale trying to shield Hauser from an oncoming tiger shark.

The whale can be seen using its head and mouth to try and push Hauser to the surface, while another nearby whale uses its tail to fend off the shark.

According to Hauser, this is the first documented case where a humpback whale has protected a human against predators.
