Bill Murray Crashes Kickball Game
Bill Murray is everywhere. He’s sliding into home plate during a minor league baseball game in Charleston, South Carolina. He’s bartending at Austin’s Shangri-La during the South by Southwest Festival. He’s accompanying a 22-year-old Norwegian girl to a party in Scotland. He’s popping up in so many random places that there’s even a website devoted to tracking the actor’s whereabouts and activities, although most of the stories it publishes are fictional.
So a group of adult kickball players shouldn’t have been surprised when their game was suddenly interrupted by the enigmatic Ghostbusters star himself this past Sunday. Marina Cockenberg of CollegeHumor posted a photo of Murray posing with the kickball team on her personal Tumblr, and the picture quickly went viral. When we contacted her for details, she directed us toward her friend Chris DiLella — an actual member of the team in question. (He’s the fourth guy from the left, wearing a gray shirt and sunglasses.) DiLella gave us the scoop on what actually happened that fateful afternoon:
Around 2 p.m., DiLella and his fellow kickballers were playing a game in a field on New York City’s Roosevelt Island. Murray “popped out of nowhere” and began interacting with the players. “He was bouncing the ball… ran over to second base. Played for a bit… Gave us all high-fives and let us pose with him in the picture,” DiLella explained over email. After the above photo was shot, Murray went over to one of the players’ moms — who was behind the camera — and “picked her up in his arms.” Soon after posing for a second shot, Murray left with “three young boys” — DiLella assumes they were Murray’s sons. Could be; Murray’s youngest kids, all boys, are 17, 15, and 11 years old.
So keep an eye out, New Yorkers — if you’re singing karaoke or having a house party or simply minding your own business in Times Square during the next few days, Murray might just put in a surprise guest appearance. And don’t worry, everyone else — you’ll probably get your turn eventually.
Major spoilers for the series finale of Gossip Shit
Three year old HENRY BASS. the chair child.
Allegedly the series finale is going to be two hours, with the final scene being a flash forward of all the cast.
The "aged" cast -
Looks like they gave Jack Bass some thinner-esque disease.
As packages firm up for AFM, here’s one that will surely reverberate in Santa Monica. Robert Pattinson is signing on to star with Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me. The film will be directed by James Marsh, who won an Oscar for the docu Man On Wire and followed with Project Nim.
Pic is based on a true story about a femme fatale who with her boyfriend kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man. They bury him in a box and things go horribly awry. Pattinson plays the flashy supporting role of the woman’s life love, Jimmy, who isn’t involved in the crime. The project was scripted by Brad Ingelsby.
Indian Paintbrush’s Steven Rales, Mark Roybal and Michael Pruss are producing with Alexandra Milchan. Also producing is Todd Field, who originally developed the film to direct, but stepped off to helm Creed of Violence for Cross Creek.
Pattinson adds this to an early 2013 schedule that will have him starring opposite Guy Pearce in the David Michod-directed The Rover, and he is also starring in Mission Blacklist, the true story of the U.S. military interrogator responsible for discovering the location of Saddam Hussein in the hunt for the fallen leader. He is repped by WME and 3 Arts.
The four-time gold medalist will appear in an upcoming episode of the ABC Family drama.
Pretty Little Liars is the latest show to get a dose of Olympic fever.
Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin, the 17-year-old who won four gold medals at the London Olympics this past summer, will guest star in an upcoming episode of the buzzy ABC Family drama. As who else? A swimmer.
In the episode, Franklin -- who will play herself -- turns up at The Brew, where competitive Rosewood High swim team member Emily (Shay Mitchell) works. Emily is shocked to see Franklin in Rosewood, and once she recovers from her initial impression, the two talk about swimming.
In addition to her gold-medal haul, Franklin took home a bronze medal. She is currently the world record holder in the 200-meter backstroke and has the U.S. record in the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke.
Franklin joins fellow Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, who guested on The CW's 90210, and gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Gabrielle Douglas, who guest starred on Hart of Dixie and The Vampire Diaries, respectively.
Pretty Little Liars will air its Halloween special next Tuesday on ABC Family, before returning for the second half of season three next year.

Victoria Jackson was a "Saturday Night Live" cast member from 1986 to 1992 and then kind of dropped off the radar, until making headlines in 2011 for endorsing the Tea Party and singing songs like "There's a Communist Living in the White House" and saying Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood and trying to take down the U.S. government from the inside.
Now in the last two weeks, Jackson has taken to the airwaves to express her feelings.
"You have to take it up with God. God made the rules. He made a man and woman's bodies fit together, he made the Ten Commandments. I believe the Bible is God's word and I base all my world view on the Bible," Jackson told Howard Stern today.
"I have gay friends ... I don't make their identity their sexuality. To me, he's my fun, theatre-loving, funny friend ... why is his identity his sexuality," she continues.
When Stern asks her why she shows disdain for their lifestyle, Jackson responds, "I don't think there's such a thing as gay marriage. The definition of marriage is man and woman."
Stern suggests we change the definition of marriage and Jackson says no, because "that would make God mad."
The 1970s: Rooney Mara
Since zooming to stardom in last year’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara has gone from virtual unknown to that rare combination of serious actress and fashion-world darling. Recently named a face of Calvin Klein, Mara is no ingenue. (Bless) Instead, she evokes the intensity of the seventies, when the world of filmmaking was dominated by passionate auteurs. As with those directors—and her brilliant mentor, David Fincher—Mara is both complicated and uncompromising.
Who from the seventies do you find interesting?
Stylewise, the person I’m most drawn to is Ali MacGraw. There was something about her that was very regal but very natural at the same time. We kind of modeled my character in The Social Network after her: I had a crocheted beret that was inspired by the one she wore in Love Story.
What was the worst fashion trend of that decade?
I find the way men dressed then to be kind of repulsive—especially disco style. I like almost all of the women’s fashion—and I think men in little shorts and high socks are really cute—but I don’t like anything shiny, and much of the seventies was shiny.
What’s your favorite movie of that era?
Paper Moon. I saw it only last year. David [Fincher] made me watch it, and I think I’ve seen it five times since then. My favorite scene is when Ryan O’Neal is talking about how he’s going to leave Addie [Tatum O’Neal, who plays his daughter in the movie]. They’re mad at each other, but Addie comes up with something clever, and they get back together. I love that ending—it’s not too happy-happy.
Bonus: Rooney as A Clockwork Orange's Alex for the NYT's 'Touch of Evil' series.
I told my kids—and you should too: Girls’ education is under threat in Pakistan, Afghanistan and around the world. It’s time we all took a stand. By Angelina Jolie.
On Wednesday morning, as we readied the kids for school amidst a few of the usual complaints about not wanting to go, I saw a headline on the cover of The New York Times: Taliban Gun Down a Girl Who Spoke Up for Rights. The Taliban claimed that 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai “ignored their warnings, and she left them no choice.” They approached her school bus, asking for her by name, and shot her in the head for promoting girls’ education.
After reading the article, I felt compelled to share Malala’s story with my children. It was difficult for them to comprehend a world where men would try to kill a child whose only “crime” was the desire that she and others like her be allowed to go to school.
Malala’s story stayed with them throughout the day, and that night they were full of questions. We learned about Malala together, watching her interviews and reading her diaries. Malala was just 11 years old when she began blogging for the BBC. She wrote of life under the Taliban, of trading in her school uniform for colorless plain clothes, of hiding books under her shawl, and eventually having to stop going to school entirely.
Our 8-year-old suggested that the world build a statue for Malala, and fittingly create a reading nook near it. Our 6-year-old asked the practical question of whether Malala had any pets, and if so, who would take care of them? She also asked about Malala’s parents and if they were crying. We decided that they were, but not only for their daughter, also for children around the world denied this basic human right. Like Malala, her parents are icons of bravery and strength. Malala’s father, also a long time champion for girls’ education, is a school principal, teacher, and poet.
The following morning, the news showed pictures of children across Pakistan holding up Malala’s picture at vigils and demonstrations, and praying in schools. My son worried that girls were going to be shot for standing up for Malala. I told him that they were aware of the danger, but publicly supporting her reflects how much Malala means to them. Malala’s courage reminded all Pakistanis how important an education is. Her bravery inspired their own.
Still trying to understand, my children asked, “Why did those men think they needed to kill Malala?” I answered, “because an education is a powerful thing.”
The shots fired on Malala struck the heart of the nation, and as the Taliban refuse to back down, so too do the people of Pakistan. This violent and hateful act seems to have accomplished the opposite of its intent, as Pakistanis rally to embrace Malala’s principles and reject the tyranny of fear. A spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban said “let this be a lesson.” Yes. Let this be a lesson—that an education is a basic human right, a right that Pakistan’s daughters will not be denied.
As girls across Pakistan stand up to say “I am Malala,” they do not stand alone. Mothers and teachers around the world are telling their children and students about Malala, and encouraging them to be a part of her movement for girls’ education. Across Pakistan, a national movement has emerged to rebuild the schools and recommit to educate all children, including girls. This terrible event marks the beginning of a necessary revolution in girls’ education.
Malala is proof that it only takes the voice of one brave person to inspire countless men, women, and children. In classrooms and at kitchen tables around the world, mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters are praying for Malala’s swift recovery and committing themselves to carry her torch. As the Nobel Committee meets to determine the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, I imagine brave Malala will be given serious consideration.
How to help.
Today in Potentially Racist Clothing Disasters: Gap has pulled a shirt reading "Manifest Destiny" from its shelves after a flood of complaints and a fiery petition called for its removal.
The retailer finally yanked the black and white tee, part of a collaboration with GQ magazine, after consumers sent tweets, Facebook messages and emails protesting the shirt, which would seem to refer to the 19th century term used to justify westward expansion of the continental United States. A Change.org petition charged that the tee "promotes a belief that has resulted in the mass genocide of indigenous people, and it serves to normalize oppression."
As Renee Roman Nose, a Native American activist, wrote on Indian Country Today:
Manifest Destiny was the catch phrase which led to the genocide of millions of my people, millions of Indigenous people throughout this country. I am also inviting the more than 1700 people on my Facebook page to boycott your stores and inviting them to shop with their conscience.
Further stoking the ire was a tweet from the shirt's designer Mark McNairy: "MANIFEST DESTINY. SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST." It's since been deleted, but it's been screengrabbed here.
On Tuesday, Gap finally released a statement (a hilariously staid one, in our opinion): "Thank you for your feedback regarding the "Manifest Destiny" t-shirt. Based on customer feedback, we will no longer offer the t-shirt in our stores or online." McNairy also issued an apology tweet yesterday, saying that "IT HURT ME DEEPLY TO BE CALLED A RACIST." (He apparently remains, however, a staunch fan of caps lock.)
And lo and behold, the link to the tee on Gap's website now displays a "product not found" error.
But judging by the whiplash, Gap won't make it out of this unscathed. James Mackay at the UK-based The Guardian declared the shirt a "historic mistake," writing, "the fact that such an item could go on sale at all speaks volumes about Euro-America's ignorance of its history with the continent's original inhabitants."

Many people have wanted Lego to make a Lord of the Rings game, and this year we will finally get to play one! The game was going to be released on October 30th, but it has been postponed for a couple weeks, and will be out for the public on November 13th. The game is going to be out for the PS3, PSPVita, XBox360, DS, 3DS, and Wii, and you can pre-order it now at GameStop.
The game will cover the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and will have over 80 unlockable characters from the movies. The game is going to have voice overs from the actual movies throughout the game, which will make it more interesting than the normal grunts, and sighs the Lego games are generally known for.
The main thing that looks different from the other Lego games, is the new backpack interface. It allows each character to collect certain items (mainly weapons) throughout their adventures through middle earth. You can access the backpack to change weapons and other things anytime through the game. The game has 2 player Multiplayer capabilities like the other Lego games.
I was really looking forward to this and now we have to wait longer

NET accused of succumbing to political and religious pressure, but channel says kiss was edited in line with parental guidelines

Greek state television has come under fire from the country's main opposition party and critics for editing out a gay kiss on the premiere of the British period drama Downton Abbey.
Greek people took to social networking sites including Twitter to complain about the NET channel's decision to axe a scene from episode one of the series showing a kiss between a visiting duke and Downton's unscrupulous footman Thomas. NET defended its move, citing parental guidance viewing rules.
"As incredible as it may seem for a democratic country in the 21st century, officials of the NET television channel censored the scene of a kiss between men from the TV drama Downton Abbey," the Syriza party said in a statement.
"This is of course an obvious case of censorship, an extreme act of homophobia and discrimination which unfortunately, after what has been happening recently, we cannot characterise as unprecedented."
The Syriza politician Dimitris Papadimoulis questioned in a tweet whether the omission was due to pressure from the far-right Golden (GD) Dawn party or religious authorities: "NET 'cut' a gay kiss on the premiere of a top TV series. Who decided this censorship? (Bishop) Seraphim of Piraeus and GD?"
Greek state television said the kiss was not censored but edited out to comply with rules on the time slot and parental consent label given to the show, which was aired at 10.05pm on Monday. An unedited version would be broadcast later on Tuesday night, it said.
"The love affair between the two men … was not censored," said Costas Spyropoulos, managing director of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. "The kiss was not shown because of the time the programme was broadcast and the corresponding parental guidance warnings."

smh. Thomas does not approve!
Bluewater Productions is famous for doing biography comics on politicians and celebrities, but the new comic book they announced today might be a first. Kim Kardashian’s love life is getting its own bio comic book.
According to Bluewater Productions, Kim Kardashian’s love life has been a major part of her rise to becoming a pop culture icon. In the 15 Minutes: Kim Kardashian comic book, the contents will revolve around the many loves of Kim Kardashian. 15 Minutes: Kim Kardashian is written by New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro and illustrated by Noval Hernawan. The cover of the comic features Kim Kardashian in just a glimpse of a Superhero outfit. Comic book fans will of course recognize the costume as being Wonder Woman, which is a costume that Kim Kardashian has worn at Halloween.
“It’s safe for me to say that over-all, I’m quite happy with the end result of this project,” said artist Hernawan. “I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity, and I hope the reader will enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed making it. Hopefully Kim will too!”
15 Minutes: Kim Kardashian is just the first in what looks to be a brand new series for Bluewater Productions. The 15 Minutes series will focus on reality stars. Bluewater Productions teases that cast members from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Jersey Shore could be next to get their own bio comics.
Alice Cooper warned Lady Gaga not to let her stage persona take over her entire life.
Cooper told how Lady Gaga had found him inspiring, but he felt the need to make sure she was careful about keeping a distinction between her real life and her on-stage character.
Speaking to Reader's Digest, Cooper said: "As soon as I saw her on TV, I fell in love with the outrage. I couldn't wait to see her show.
"Last year, we met backstage and she was wonderful. She got down on her knees and did the whole "we're not worthy" bit from [the film] Wayne's World.
"She said, 'Alice, thank you for letting me steal your show.' I said, 'Gaga, I created a character called Alice. But it's important to keep Alice on stage. I never let Alice take over my real life.'"
The rocker explained his comments further, adding: "I guess what I was trying to say was, be outrageous for the cameras. Wear a chicken on your head... but don't get suckered into thinking that stuff is real.
"When you're at home, just be yourself. If you can learn to co-exist with both Gagas, you'll be OK."
And let's hope that Lady Gaga's "character" doesn't affect her new album too much, either. The star has reportedly become obsessed with French singer Edith Piaf, and is rumoured to be sampling Piaf on tracks for ARTPOP.
A source told The Sun: "Gaga sees a lot of herself in Edith. She, too, was a rebellious character in her era.
"There’s an awful lot of red tape to get through — it’s a complicated process. But she’s hoping the Piaf estate want to ensure, with her help, that the music can be introduced to a new audience.
"Considering the size of Gaga’s global following, Edith’s music will gain a huge new fanbase."
This post is really just an excuse to post:
