Even if you don’t know his name, chances are strong that you’ve heard the story of Daniel Craft. You probably know his name because he was the ‘Star Trek’ fan who was granted his final wish of seeing ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, but he was also a member of New York’s Subway Cinema and helped organize the city’s increasingly popular Asian Film Festival. Last night, he passed away.
His death was announced on the New York Asian Film Festival’s Facebook page with the following message:
“Last night around 10:15pm, Dan Craft, who has been a member of Subway Cinema since 2004, passed away. His wife and brother were with him when he went, and he wasn’t in any pain. He’d been a bit loopy for a few days as his liver failed and toxins built up in his blood, and on Thursday his wife asked him if he needed to go to the bathroom. “I’m going…” he proclaimed, “Into the future.”
See you there, Dan.
Dan Craft: 1971 – 2013
We miss you.”
As sad as his final moments must have been for his friends and family, his final words certainly reflect his Trekkie nature. Boundless optimism in the face of the unknown has always been a signature theme of the ‘Star Trek’ universe, after all.
Earlier this morning, a friend of Dan’s took to Reddit to thank everyone who helped spread the news of his story. After all, this began as a simple post from his wife, but with Reddit’s help, it soon spiraled into a massive internet campaign. Here’s an excerpt from the post, complete with the details of how Dan’s screening of the latest ‘Star Trek’ adventure went over:
“A day or so after the thread began, Paige, Dan’s wife, got a voicemail from JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof that was very nice and very straightforward: a producer for the movie would get in touch with them. The next day, one of the film’s producers showed up at the door of their apartment with a DVD containing a very rough cut of Star Trek: Into Darkness in his hands. Paige had made popcorn, Dan had spent the previous day resting so he could sit through the movie, and after signing about 200 non-disclosure agreements they watched the film and had a blast.
Afterwards, Dan got back into bed, exhausted, and didn’t get out again. Yesterday he was pretty non-responsive and Paige took him to the hospital for hospice care. Last night, at 10:15pm, with Paige and his brother in his room, Dan died. The last thing he got to do that gave him pleasure was watch the new Star Trek movie. And it’s because of you.
At a time when he didn’t have a whole lot to look forward to, r/StarTrek, JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof, and Bad Robot performed a simple act of kindness for a total stranger and gave Dan something to be excited about for a couple of days. The movie did exactly what movies are supposed to do, it helped him forget about his problems for a couple of hours. It doesn’t sound like much, but in this case it was.”
This is a difficult story to write about without getting sappy, sacharine or insensitive, but to those of us who didn’t know him, Dan now stands as a symbol of the power of film. Here’s a man who spent his days helping to cultivate one of the best film festivals in the country and when the end was near, he took solace in cinema. “Dying Man Gets to See New ‘Star Trek’ Movie” is flashy headline, but this story is a powerful reminder of why we love cinema. Movies are capable of transporting us to new worlds, of helping us forget our pain for two hours — it’s comforting to know that a real movie fan was able to embrace what he loved until the very end.
Rest in peace, Mr. Craft.
Pop the champagne and get the sass in full swing…NeNe Leakes s engaged!
Th Real Housewives of Atlanta tar finally confirmed o Late Night withJimmy Fallon</em>what we all assumed—after a series o tell-all tweets n an interview on th Today how here she oh-so-strategically dodged the question—she's set to walk down the aisl again ith ex-husban Gregg Leakes
"You start tweeting out these photos," Fallon said, while taunting th New Normal tar with every telling pic she'd tweeted on NYE
The romantic photos included a shot of rose petal-covered andlelit hallway an champagne on ice ith the initials G and N spelled out in Hershey kisses, followed by a tweet where NeNe revealed that her answer was "Yes."
"So I'm going, are you engaged? Can you say anything?!" Jimmy pressed as the sassy star squirmed uncomfortably in her seat.
"Well…a little after midnight," NeNe hesitantly begins as a drumroll erupts in the background. "I was asked this beautiful question: Will you marry me—again?"
"Yes!" she exclaimed, basking in the wedding bliss
NeNe and Gregg divorced in 2011 after nearly 14 years of marriage together.
Here's hoping second time's the charm for these two lovebirds! Congrats!
Courtland Rogers and his new wife Jenelle Evans spent their Saturday night at the tattoo parlor. Both Jenelle and Courtland have several tattoos. Courtland even has Jenelle's name written across his chest as well as a "910" tattoo which represents his hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Jenelle also went along for the visit to the tattoo spot, but so far, she hasn't shown off any new ink, or even clarified that she was having anything done
Now, Courtland has added Confederate flag to his collection and the work is very unique. Instead of just being a square flag, it instead looks as if it is ripping out of his rib cage. Courtland debuted his new ink to his Twitter fans earlier today along with the caption, "Yes !!!!"
I love black people !! That tattoo has no specific reasoning my grandma was alive when i started it and died before i got it colored in she picked it out not me !!

I gotta say this is looking like one of the more original horror movies to come down the Hollywood pipeline in a while And, hey, if Guillermo del Toro is producing, it can’t be all bad, right?
The story for this fright fest concerns a young couple faced with the challenge of raising their young nieces who were left alone in the forest for 5 years…. but how alone they really are and what they brought with them back to civilization is another ball of wax.

LEANN Rimes‘ husband Eddie Cibrian is using her for money..
According to Star magazine, the actor spends LeAnn’s cash like it’s going out of fashion — and she does nothing to stop him!
“Eddie spends LeAnn’s money at an alarming rate!” an insider said.
“He acts like it’s unlimited; he doesn’t even care. He buys whatever he wants, no matter how extravagant it is. The way he sees it is, he supports LeAnn in everything she does, so it’s only fair that he gets to buy himself treats.
“Eddie will buy LeAnn gifts with her own money, but she doesn’t care… it’s a great excuse for her to show off to everyone and act like Eddie takes care of her.
“LeAnn’s accountant has repeatedly warned her that Eddie’s spending is out of control, but she just turns a blind eye, terrified that one false move will cause Eddie to leave her for another woman.
“He could bring them to the brink of bankruptcy, and she still wouldn’t say anything.
Her career isn’t working out the way she hoped, so she’s doing all these little shows here and there to try to raise funds.
“She even sold her Tennessee mansion in March for $3.35 million less than it was listed for, because she needs the money.
“Deep down, she knows she can only keep Eddie if she’s rich.
“Once the money goes, so does he.”

After a very public behind the scenes shake-up, the newly installed Smash EP, Joshua Safran, and the cast addressed the press at the Television Critics Association Tour in Pasadena, CA today.
First thing first, Safran wanted to make it clear that this rejiggered season is still very much the Smash you fell in love with last year. "I don't really think it's changed that much. The stuff you loved last year is still there and the stuff you thought went off on tangents, we tried to find ways to pull together."
"It's bigger, with more music, younger in some regards, but I hope the people who watched it still see the same show they loved."
Having watched the two-hour premiere, I can attest that what Safran says is true. The episode is fast-paced, more grounded yet dares all the characters to dream higher. All in all, it's simply more of what you loved to begin with.
To play off that, Smash introduces Hit List, a second burgeoning Broadway musical this season, which is how newbies Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus (they play Hit List's writers) come into the picture. "We have more original music, more musical sequences per episode [and] more diverse styles," Safran added. "If you look at Broadway, there are shows that take place in the 1800s and shows that take place today. I wanted to represent that [on our show]."
Check out a brand new sneak peek above and tune in to the season two premiere of Smash, February 5 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
Very excited to see some Jeremy Jordan on my screen! Are you excited for the new season?

“I wanna tell the world about u just so they can get jealous,” he wrote with the image.
Brenda and Trace just recently reunited after calling off their engagement earlier last summer.
Brenda is also pictured doing a bit of shopping around Urban Outfitters in Studio City, Calif., on Saturday afternoon (January 5).http://www.justjaredjr.com/2013/01/06/brenda-song-kisses-from-trace-cryus/
I believe in love again
Rumor has it Team Britney enlisted Will.I.Am as executive producer for Album 8.
I think Will.I.Am is super creative, but I personally would be extremely let down if this were the case. Mix it up!
Britney was executive producer once. Then 'Blackout' happened.
I hope this is false. I did like BFB and S&S, but I don't think he can produce a flaw-free album. I mean, he can't even release his own album. Also, I dislike him so much, whether he is alone or with the flop eyed piss. Ugh. I need something new and exciting. Even Dr. Recycled-Beats would be a better choice, tbh.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart celebrated the new year together at a Mexican restaurant with a “group of friends!” Thankfully, a fan snapped a cute pic of Rob and Kristen celebrating with the staff at Mestizo restaurant in London on Dec. 31!
A source close to the situation confirms to HollywoodLife.com that Rob and Kristen were at the restaurant and “Rob has been there before!”
“They held hands as they left and Rob was seen smoking an e-cig at one point,” the source adds.
Mestizo offers a fine and authentic Mexican cuisine! The Twilight actors could have ordered entrees such as special salad, beef medallions and Mousse de Margarita for dessert — all part of the New Year’s Eve menu that costs each guest a bit over $100. (We’re sure that didn’t put a dent in Rob and Kristen’s wallets.)
Robsten’s First Spotting In London For New Year’s 2013
Rob and Kristen were first spotted in London on on Dec. 29 as they were getting off the subway at London Victoria. They have a yearly tradition of spending Christmas with their respective families, and reuniting for New Year’s on the Isle of Wight. We’re not sure if this restaurant is located on the Isle of Wight, but we’re certainly happy to see Rob and Kristen celebrated the holiday together!
It's only been five months since Octomom got off welfare, but TMZ has learned the honeymoon's over for your tax dollars -- because she's back on government assistance.
Sources close to Octo tell TMZ, Nadya Suleman signed up for welfare again this week after her October rehab bills devoured most of her savings.
We're told the mother of 14 will be getting $1,800 a month for food, $1,000 for emergency cash, as well as Medi-Cal benefits to help with mental heath and dental issues.
According to sources, Octomom only plans to use the welfare money while she gets back on her feet -- or on her back.
TMZ broke the story ... Octo went on welfare last March, but was able to get off guv assistance in July ... the result of a pile of cash she scored from stripping and masturbation porn.
It's not easy raising children, managing your career and caring for pets at the same time. Courteney Cox explained to Ellen about the great lengths she had to go to for her dog, on her balcony, on a pee pad.
Over the past few years, Kelly Osbourne has increasingly become a famous symbol of weight loss. Granted, she occasionally says some pretty dumb things, but for the most part, many people have begun looking at her as an honest, straightforward celebrity who happens to have lost quite a bit of weight. Nevertheless, apparently critics have continued fat shaming her, no matter how much she’s lost (according to The Daily Mail, that count is around 65 pounds). But even if she had never lost the weight, isn’t the real problem the fact that people are being body shamed at all?
Osbourne said in a recent interview with Fabulous that at 28, “I’m the thinnest I’ve ever been and the healthiest I’ve ever been… The totally insane thing is that I’m a UK size 4 to 6 and people still say I’m fat. I mean it’s crazy but I’ve had this all my life and I just try and ignore it.”
Well, while I agree it is pretty nonsensical to consider somebody overweight who’s at a size in the medically healthy range, I think the problem goes far beyond whether or not thin people are being shamed after they’ve lost weight. We all know that the media flip flops on certain celebrities being too fat, then too thin, then too fat once more. If she lost another fifteen pounds, I can near-guarantee the tabloids would find some horrible pun to call her regarding being “too skinny.” The issue is not with some indeterminate size number at which a person’s body is suddenly out of fat shaming range; the fact that people’s bodies are being critiqued this way at all is the problem.
Body shaming exists not just for heavier celebrities, but for thin ones, too. Actually, for that matter, there are certain outlets that will criticize just about any body type, regardless of whether or not the person is healthy — and let’s be honest, the level of healthiness based on appearance is difficult to gauge, not to mention inappropriate to judge. Sure, if a celebrity says in an article that he or she starves in order to stay thin or exclusively eats cheesecake for every meal, then yes, the health factor is a little more easy to determine. But it’s extremely hard to figure out how healthy somebody is just by taking a look at her body. Having thick thighs doesn’t necessarily mean a person doesn’t work out; in fact, maybe she plays a lot of soccer. Thin biceps do not insinuate weakness; perhaps that woman works out constantly, but is naturally built as such.
And regardless, the amount of body shaming that goes on in the media shouldn’t exist whatsoever. Whether Kelly Osbourne is a size 4 or a size 14, or anywhere above and below those tag numbers, she — nor anybody else — doesn’t deserve to be shamed about how her body looks.
sorry mods I forgot the source, ha i'm rubbish x

He's the love Doctor: David Tennant reveals he’s set to become a father for third time
He’s well known for being the dashing actor who starred in Doctor Who.
But David Tennant is now getting ready for another role- he’s going to be a father for the third time.
The actor confirmed that his wife Georgia Moffet is pregnant with their second child (David also adopted her ten-year-old son) while on The Jonathan Ross Show.
Notoriously private David, 41, opened up about his exciting news while appearing on the show, which aired on Saturday evening.
He told Jonathan: ‘It's lovely, very lovely. It's exciting,’
The couple, who married in a New Year’s Eve ceremony in 2011, are already parents to one-year-old daughter Olive.
The Love Doctor: David already has a daughter with his wife Georgia Moffet, as well as adopting her 10-year-old son
David adopted her son Tyler, who is ten, back in 2011.
Georgia, who is the daughter to former Doctor Who Peter Davison, gave birth to Tyler when she was 17 – the father was a waiter at a restaurant near her school.
While on the chat show David took the opportunity to promote his role in new BBC drama Spies of Warsaw.
David, who is most well-known for role in Doctor Who, revealed that he was even recognised by fans while filming in Poland, despite the fact he was wearing a costume.
He said: ‘I didn’t realise Doctor Who plays in Poland – but it obviously does.
'I’ve had a few fans coming up, wanting to say hello, or get a photograph or a signature.
‘It doesn’t happen quite on the scale that it happens at home – but then I don’t think I’ve been to a country yet where I haven’t met someone who’s a Doctor Who fan.
'Except maybe Uganda.’
The Scottish star plays Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier in the show which is based on US writer Alan Furst’s novel of the same name.
