Remember how awesome the Inception trailer was? Then remember when everyone decided they needed to make their own spoof version? (Dora’s Incepcion, anyone?) Everyone wanted in on summer’s blockbuster hit. The people over at MakerBaker (they make and bake things, hence the name) are a little late to the game, but I think it was well worth the wait.
They decided to reenact the trailer using things they found around the house. I have to say they do a pretty good job. For a refresher, take a look at the original Inception trailer here. Then, watch the MakerBaker’s version after the jump. READ FULL STORY
A few days ago I returned from a week-long visit to my parent’s house in South Texas. When I wasn’t busy trying to think of creative ways to prevent my spontaneous combustion from excessive heat exposure, I found some time to clean out the toy-filled closet in my old bedroom. And by “found some time” I mean I was tired of my mother’s dirty looks.
At some point while sorting through my memories from ages 2-12, I caught myself thinking something that horrified me: “They just don’t make them this way anymore.” Suddenly, a montage of every elderly person on TV I’d ever seen saying the exact same line flashed in my brain, and I felt awful. After about two seconds of feeling like the oldest person on the planet, I snapped the heck out of it because my point was totally valid.
The majority of my childhood has long since been given away to younger cousins and sold at garage sales, but every now and then while sorting through my piles of junk, I would come across a spare piece of a toy that instantly jarred my memory. READ FULL STORY
Hey, maybe I will end up reading a book this year! People has an exclusive image of the cover of America’s most treasured stuffed animal and water bottle target Justin Bieber’s memoir First Step 2 Forever: My Story, due out in October. I’d always assumed the first step of something was step 1, but who has time for numbers and mysteries when 16-year-old Justin Bieber has written ME!!! a personal message on the cover of his book?! “Lots of exclusive photos just for you. Love Justin xxx.” OMG.

Cosmopolitan magazine sounding like a reasonable mother with her kids’ best interests at heart. (On the cover, she’s wearing a black zippered bustier top and jeans that lack a good couple of inches of needed waistline material. Well, you can take the girl out of the oversexualized 1990s music videos but you can’t take the music videos out of the girl.) When asked how she would respond if her two young boys — red and round-cheeked Sean Preston and Jayden James, 4 and 3 — ever expressed a desire to follow their Mama’s calloused feet into showbiz, Spears was refreshingly blunt in her answer. “I’d lock them in their rooms until they turned 30,” she said.Britney Spears continues to quietly show some good sense. How’s that for a headline?! The young woman, somehow only 28 years old despite those seemingly endless years of drama and misery, is inside August’s
Now doesn’t that just strike you as the best possible thing any beleaguered pop star/movie star/reality TV star could ever say about their unselfish hopes for their bright and shiny children? Can you imagine if years ago, when things started sliding South, Dina Lohan had just decided READ FULL STORY
announced its plans to breathe life into the dusty and desiccated form of the radio serial with a scripted series called My Dream, about a teenager trying to break into the music industry. Of course it’s been adapted to match the current goldfish-minded generation: Each episode will only last 90 seconds.The cryogenically frozen body of Walt Disney isn’t the only thing the House of Mouse is planning on resuscitating. Radio Disney has
With the upcoming release of the Green Hornet – which began as a radio serial in the 1930s — it looks like ol’ timey radio may be having a comeback. I think it might be cool to see some shows currently on TV try to go after that coveted octogenarian demographic and do some radio episodes. The sexy sultry voices of True Blood would work, and Glee seems custom made for the medium. And think how awesome Lost would have been if we could solve the mystery of the numbers with our Little Orphan Annie decoder rings.
Anyone else want to get in this time machine with me? Do you think any kids even know what a radio is, let alone a radio serial? Hoping Disney has a plan in the works to telegraph a whole episode of Hannah Montana?
