Quickie Book Review: Equations of Life  »  A Life in the Day
by Simon MordenAfter the nuclear holocaust, Samuil Petrovitch manages to move himself from the remnants of St. Petersburg to the London Metrozone -- one of the few remaining free cities on the planet. Now, he spends most of the time working on high-level computer projects while trying not to stand out from the crowd. All that changes with one little mistake -- he stumbles upon a woman being kidnapped, and against his better judgement, he comes to her rescue. This is no ordinary Londoner, though, but the daughter of a wealthy Yakuza. Now, the police and the Russian mob ...

Amy Poehler & Tina Fey: Retiring from Cohosting Golden Globes  »  popbytes
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been handling Golden Globes cohosting duties for the past couple years now for two very good reasons: First, Neil Patrick Harris can only handle so many hosting gigs, and second, because they’re hysterically funny and awesome and they single-handedly brought in the highest numbers in the show’s history. So that’s pretty good. Anyway, in an interview promoting her new book, Amy sat down and said that this would be their last year hosting, because it’s either a matter of stopping while you’re ahead or hosting The Golden Globes in 2035, ...

Marvel reveals Phase 3 Superhero Lineup!  »  popbytes
Marvel has gotten to a point where they’re just mainlining cash directly into their bank accounts. People can hem and haw all they want about how many superhero movies there are right now, but they’re still going to watch them anyway because they’re actually really good. Anyway, the company held an event yesterday wherein they revealed their movie line-up for phase three, which at this point is just doing what works and watching money soar into their offices like geese migrating south for the winter. Via HuffPoCaptain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) Doctor Strange (Nov. 4, 2016) Guardians of the Galaxy ...

Benedict Cumberbatch set to bring ‘Doctor Strange’ to life!  »  popbytes
If there’s one thing the web loves, other than cats, crowdfunding, naked pictures of famous celebrities, rightfully damning people who leak naked pictures of famous celebrities against their will, and bacon, it’s Benedict Cumberbatch. People just go apesh!t over Benedict and his smooth British accent and his perfectly angular — but not too angular — bone structure. Anyway, he’s been cast as Doctor Strange in the new Marvel movie of the same name, so expect plenty of fan art and slash fiction of Doctor Strange any day now. Deadline reports … Marvel has finally found ...

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)  »  popbytes
I’ve loved Sinéad O’Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014’s best! Catch her just released music video for “8 Good Reasons,” one of the album’s best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains legendary–#FightTheRealEnemy! Watching her ride at the back of a bus while wearing a priest collar (purposely picked over ...

GODLESS WEDNESDAY: Oklahoma's Ten Commandments Monument Destroyed By Vandal  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
This news story about the destruction of a monument of the Ten Commandments at the Oklahoma State Capitol caught my eye. There are multiple interesting aspects of the story, in my opinion. The very first was: Oklahoma has a monument to the Ten Commandments on state property? How is that legal? The second one was, "Good for you, vandal, for ending this violation of church-state separation, although I do not approve of your methods." Third was, I wonder who did it?"It turns out the person who did it is not a godless heathen, but a different kind of ...

TENNIS TUESDAY: Serena, Federer, Murray Win Titles; Ivanovic To Rise To World #5  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Long May She ReignSerena Williams ended her 2014 like she did the last three years: she won the last major of the year (the US Open) and also won the season-ending championships. This year she beat Simona Halep 6-3 6-0 to confirm her status as the #1 player in the world for 2014, surprisingly, she has only achieved the year-end #1 ranking three times before: 2002, 2009 and 2013. It's pretty incredible that at age 33 Serena is playing some of her best tennis and 2015 look like it could be a great year. (I expect her ...

Neil Patrick Harris is getting his own NBC variety show  »  popbytes
As was mentioned yesterday in our fall TV post, NBC has climbed up the rankings and is now fighting it out with ABC for the #2 spot among the major networks. And according to Vulture, they might be setting themselves up for the edge now by giving Neil Patrick Harris, the most Entertainer-with-a-capital-E entertainer currently working, his own variety show on the network … NBC and ITV execs have confirmed the Harris news. Peacock alternative TV head Paul Telegdy told Vulture that he’s been looking to get a variety series on the network for a long time, and ...

Box Office: John Wick vs. A Ouija Board  »  popbytes
  • Since Halloween is only a few days away, it would make sense that a horror movie would be number one at the box office this past weekend. So your entry for this year is Ouija, which earned $20 Million, according to Box Office Mojo. Except here’s the weird thing: All trademarks and patents associated with Ouija? Owned by Mattel. The demon board is literally owned by the same people who gives us Transformers and My Little Pony. Remember that when you’re watching Ouija sometime this week.
  • In second place is John Wick, a movie about

Ferras knows how to “Speak In Tongues”  »  popbytes
Easily one of this year’s best releases … don’t miss Ferras‘ new music video for the title track of his EP, Speak In Tongues. I got to see him open for Katy Perry (having just signed to her new label) a few months ago and he was fantastic. Please do pay attention when I actually manage to give a male artist the time of day … as many of you know that I am so all about the ladies when it comes to music–but then you a have guy like Ferras pop onto ...

Fall TV: Who’s safe? Who’s on the chopping block?  »  popbytes
We’re about two months into the new fall TV season, which means we now have a representative enough sample to start calling who will be seeing a second season and who will be getting the boot. So far, the consensus is that America loves shows about superheroes and take-no-sh!t Viola Davis, and really couldn’t care less about zeitgeisty shows about #trending or remakes that never needed to be remade. MSN reports … Television analyst Marc Berman is already taking bets on which show will be the first casualty. Fox’s Seinfeld inspired sitcom Mulaney, Selfie, which is ABC’s modern twist ...

Five Reasons Not To Miss ‘The Country House’ on Broadway  »  popbytes
Broadway is no stranger to plays that pay tribute to Anton Chekhov. Donald MarguliesThe Country House, the latest offering from the Manhattan Theatre Club, is easily the wittiest homage to the prolific Russian playwright since the outrageous Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Taking place all under one roof, this new play follows the reunion of a family at their summer house one year after the death of one of their immediate members. What ensues is a dramedy chock-full of revealed family secrets and issues, declarations of love, ...

Bystanders Intervene To Stop Bashing  »  Ron's Log
It's not often...maybe it's more accurate to say never before have we seen a good clear video of an entire gaybashing from beginning to end, but here it is. If you stay to the end of the video it morphs into something else and you get to see a prize winning beard. This is DFW: You can see that the main reason this is all recorded was that the drunk guy telegraphed his intentions so far in advance that our videographer was able to set up a good shot. Hell, there was enough time to call Hollywood and get ...

Ted Olson Still Aiming High  »  Ron's Log
Ted Olson acknowledges that the point of no return has been passed on the issue of marriage equality. He does not, however, agree with President Obama that this incremental approach is acceptable. There are still 18 states that abridge the rights of their citizens...which, I irrelevantly point out, is more states than were in the Confederacy, but this is fine with Obama. Olson wants the damn Supremes to take one damn case and make a damn clear decision, damn it. [Note: Olson never said "damn."] ...

Just In Time To Make Some Money  »  Ron's Log
A Colorado company has announced a consumer test kit that they say can detect marijuana in food. Here's the website of Personal Analytics, the company that is selling this kit. There is nothing in either the news article or on the company website to suggest this kit has been tested by any neutral third party. I'd like to see an opinion from a law enforcement agency after they test it. So if you want to market an untested product like this, you publicize it just a few days before Halloween when there is no time for parents to ...
