How do Tumblr's Entertainers of the Year compare to ours?

Tumblr-EOY.jpg

If we sat all the millions of Tumblr users with their 150 million-plus blogs in one room and asked them to compile their list of this year’s top entertainers, it would look like this:

UtterChaos.

Fine, bad idea. Instead, the minds at Tumblr HQ compiled a 2013 Year in Review, listing the top reblogged names in each category, including actors, actresses, bands, and solo artists.

But we at EW HQ have a bone to pick with Tumblr users: Out of the 100 entertainers listed as the most popular, only three names match our list: Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, and Macklemore. With that discovery, we figured we’d take a closer look and investigate the differences between our picks and those of Tumblr-ers. Below, our findings:

The 'Best Funeral Ever' is actually an Urn Wedding

Screen Shot 2013-12-02 at 10.15.36 PM

“We are gathered here today to reunite these two urns in holy matrimony….”

TLC’s Best Funeral Ever chronicles the unbelievably absurd workflow of the Dallas-based Golden Gate funeral home — Monday’s series premiere saw caskets roll down a bowling alley and across the finish line of a 100-meter dash, plus a gospel choir-infused “breakfast funeral” and a well-beyond-creepy “urn wedding” (pictured), in which Baptismal couture elegantly replaced the tux and white dress of a traditional living-person affair.

I’m sure the ridiculata presented below will make some people rage — “Reality TV has gone too far! Oh, how America has fallen!” PLEASE. Whatever. America toppled over long ago; we’re just obsessively filming the wreckage these days. Like it or not, urns are tying the knot with or without our viewership.

David Blaine is neither real nor magic

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 11.43.31 PM

It just seems very obvious to me that David Blaine is some sort of wizard or alien, sent here from an entirely different realm to infatuate us with magic so as to slow down the process of science. READ FULL STORY

Martin Bashir doesn't really want someone to crap in Sarah Palin's mouth -- VIDEO

Ah, the glamor and dignity of the 24-hour news cycle!

Some background: On Nov. 9, Sarah Palin compared the national debt to human slavery at a big fundraiser. Naturally, her remarks provoked quite a bit of outrage — particularly from Martin Bashir, who called Palin a “world class idiot” on his MSNBC show Friday.

But Bashir didn’t stop there. “It’s hardly surprising that [Palin] should choose to mention slavery in a way that is abominable to anyone who knows anything about its barbaric history,” he continued. “So here’s an example.” He went on to quote a first-person account written by plantation overseer Thomas Thistlewood in 1756, which reports that upon being caught eating sugarcane, a slave named Darby was “well flogged and picked.”

Oh, and after that, the overseer “made Hector, another slave, sh– in his mouth.”

'Dancing With the Stars': Maks is back!

Former pro and current scruff-less stranger Maksim “This Is My Show” Chmerkovskiy returned to the ballroom to guest-judge tonight’s season 17 semifinals. The stage directors wisely nestled Maks’ prize-winning buns between between Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, allowing for prime reaction shots to Grumpy and Dopey along with minimal splash-annoyance from Weepy (Carrie Ann Inaba) two seats away.

See a collection of Maks’ best visual moments below….

'Once Upon a Time': The 10 craziest moments so far -- VIDEO

[Spoiler alert!]

Eat Rip your heart out, Lost, because Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have a new island to play with called Neverland and a new group of survivors to gift with some hefty daddy issues and crazy plot twists. And we saw the result of their tomfoolery in Sunday night’s episode, because, as it turns out, Peter Pan is Rumplestiltskin’s father, and thus, Twue Believuh Henry’s great-grandfather.

Which means… practically everyone is related to Henry now. The Evil Queen is his adoptive mother. Rumplestiltskin is his grandfather (and so is Prince Charming, for that matter). Captain Hook is his biological mother’s possible lover, and his grandfather’s wife’s onetime lover. What are we going to learn next, that Granny’s his sister and Red’s his, er, grand-niece? Is that what they’re called?

But shhh. Just believe, Oncers, believe, and sprinkle on some of that pixie dust, because it’s time to face it: Like the Lost Boys who can never leave Neverland, we can never go back to simpler times. The only thing left to do is to take a look back at how far we’ve traveled — from the Enchanted Forest to Wonderland to that one time we went to Dr. Frankenstein’s black-and-white world — and examine the best, most outrageous twists Once has thrust upon us.

Below, our picks for the top 10 most bonkers moments of the series that would drive even the Mad Hatter madder:

Chip Chocolate talks 'Cookie Dance', bathing in milk, and a rap battle with the Cookie Monster

chip-chocolate.jpg

Do you know the cookie dance? And no, it’s not a dance you do to summon cookies, but rather one you do to celebrate them. Rapper Chip Chocolate (real name: Jesse Wellens) created his first song, “Cookie Dance,” out of nothing but a young boy’s pure love of the delectable dessert. And now that Chip Chocolate’s first music video has more than a million views, the cookie dance is no longer just a childhood dream.

We caught up with Chip Chocolate to find out about his inspiration, career goals, and if he was really sitting in a tub of milk:

Watch Jean-Claude Van Damme perform 'the most epic of splits' in new Volvo commercial -- VIDEO

Jean-Claude-Van-Damme.jpg

Volvo’s latest commercial will drive you to feel things.

What kinds of things, you ask? Well every feeling that doesn’t involve a desire to buy a Volvo automobile. One, it will make your mouth gape in awe at Jean-Claude Van Damme’s over-50 physical prowess. In the commercial, the Belgian thigh-master performs “the most epic of splits” between two golden Volvo trucks. Two, it may make you cry or feel calm enough to attempt some close-to-quitting-time yoga – it features Enya’s tearjerker “Only Time.” And three, it might make you laugh at the bizarro pairing of the action star and the upper-middle-class family brand.

Any ad that can incite a whoa!, to wah!, to WTF? is a winner in my book.

“Now I stand here before you, what you see is a body crafted to perfection,” Van Damme says in the ad (are we still talking about the trucks?)

'Cookie Dance': A viral video bathed in milk -- VIDEO

A lot of kids have experienced the moment where a parent told them to put down a cookie and pick up a piece of fruit, and 95 percent of those kids probably ran away with a cookie still in hand. But what happens if you really examine that moment, and in turn, dedicate your whole life to cookies? That’s the premise of Chip Chocolate’s music video “Cookie Dance,” the latest YouTube trend.

After a mother tells her son he won’t amount to anything if he eats a cookie, the young boy in the video decides he will defy those odds and amount to something after all: A cookie pimp who spends his days bathing in milk, eating homemade Mrs. Fields cookies — she’s literally in his kitchen — and teaching people the cookie dance. Oh, and don’t forget the slutty girl scouts that dance with him.

Hey, the guy is all about his chips and all about his dough. Wouldn’t you dance with him if you could? Personally, I’d rather enjoy some “cookie sushi” while lounging nearby, but if you’re feeling the beat,  you can learn the dance yourself in the video below:
