I'm the copy chief & an occasional writer for The Stir. I really like grammar and words and very nerdy books, which is weird to most people. I live in uptown New York City, but you can always find me at a Pittsburgh Steelers bar during football season on Sunday. I like the Steelers so much that I even blog about them.
You haven't heard by now? Where you been?? Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are finally married! Yes! Finally! Everyone's waiting with bated breath for details about the rings, the dress, the flowers, the amazing location, how her kids were involved, etc., etc., etc. But leave it to Angie and her superhuman ways to help put everything into perspective.
Instead of gushing about her nuptials, Angelina released a statement about Syria. Of all things. Syria. Doesn't get much more depressing than that, and Syria is likely the last thing on any other newlywed's mind. But that's what makes Angie Angie. Good for her for helping the rest of us realize that their wedding should mean significantly far less than what is going on in the rest of the world.
Hey, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 fans, there's some awesome movie stuff coming your way to gawk at. New posters have been released to promote Mockingjay, and there's a lot of guns, a lot of wings, a lot of black, and a hot, head-half-shaven Natalie Dormer. What more could you ask for, really? And there's no doubt about it ... if you haven't read the books in a while, you will most likely have to google some of these names.
Ah, propoganda! Something every Hunger Games fan is most likely familiar with.
Check out the newest posters below and proceed to geek out until you can see the movie on November 21.
You may have been super tired last night/woken up bleary-eyed this morning, but most likely your spirits were risen to the high heavens when you read the latest breaking entertainment news. It seems that a Full House revival is in the works! Yep, your favorite, cheesy, violin-background music-loving, all-white cast could actually grace your television screens yet again in the very near future. Oh, Mylanta!
The sitcom aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995 and can still be seen at nighttime on Nick at Nite. Don't lie, you know you've watched a couple episodes. With the show's success on Nick at Nite, Warner Bros. TV is thinking about bringing back some of the original cast and giving the show a reboot. With the newly revived Girl Meets World getting a second season, this could equal ratings gold. Or, at the very least, a super-curious audience who wants to see exactly which direction the reboot could possibly take.
Imagine going around thinking your house was haunted -- things were moving around inexplicably. Kind of cool to tell your family and friends, right? Well, that's what Rachel Leck thought. A lamp was knocked down; some decorations fell off the wall. Perhaps a visit from a friendly spirit? Um, no, the reality is far more terrifying. After observing these strange movements in her southern Ontario home, on August 17, as she went to sit down on the sofa, she saw a 10-foot snake draped over the arm rest opposite her.
Commence. Screaming. Now.
"There was some screams and there was some swearing," she recalled in an interview over the phone. Definitely would be most people's initial reaction! Police say the constrictor snake is most likely a Burmese python -- an exotic species that is prohibited from being kept as a pet in Midland.
Is this the spazziest ALS Ice Bucket Challenge you've ever seen? Jennifer Aniston took the challenge, and her fiance Justin Theroux was the one to do the honors by pouring a ton of cold water on the actress's gorgeous head. And it's pretty much something you simply have to see.
It's always a tad jarring to see celebrities doing the same thing you and your family and friends have been doing the past few weeks, isn't it? They're human beings too! Well, most of the time.
And you have to give Jennifer props for making a donation and encouraging her fans to do the same. She really is the cutest. Her reaction to getting all that icy cold water poured on her head is hilarious, and Justin's sweet kiss at the end makes it all worth it.
