The 2009 film Up had audiences both crying and laughing as a grumpy old widower and a jubilant young Wilderness Explorer traveled in a house that floated through the sky via colorful balloons. But if Michael Bay had directed the Pixar movie, it would have been very different. Very different. READ FULL STORY

Like a beautiful rainbow left behind by a torrential storm, the awesome might of the Sharknado has bestowed upon us a precious gift. That gift is Shark, the new fragrance from Tara Reid.
Described as “a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear,” Shark is full of scents like lavender, violet, and cool blue rose, all meant to convey a “light and fun feel.” This is highly suspect. Sharks are not light and fun. They are the opposite of light and fun. They are large and terrifying.
However, if one wanted to become a shark, then smelling light and fun would be advantageous. It is much easier to become the apex predator of your environment if everyone around you finds your aroma pleasant and not very shark-like.
To summarize: Shark by Tara Reid is a thing that exists. (At least, we think so; Reid hasn’t yet responded to EW‘s request for comment.) It is probably a poor representation of the shark-smelling experience—but still worth considering for all current and aspiring sharks.
A tree that someone planted in memory of the Beatles’ George Harrison is no more: It was destroyed by beetles. No, really.
The pine tree, planted in 2004 near Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, died when it was infested by a swarm of beetles. It will eventually be replanted—but for now, we have some words for those tree-destroying insects. And naturally, those words come in the form of reinvented Beatles songs. READ FULL STORY
Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.
Sure, some of the interview is actually pretty sweet—he talks about wanting to make sure his daughter’s life is better than his own, how much he loves his wife, Kim Kardashian, how special it is to have someone to call “Mom” once again. (He also basically confirms that every insane rumor you heard about the Kimye wedding was 100 percent true.) But when we look to Kanye West, we’re hoping to get some more of his signature out-there statements—and luckily, there’s no shortage of them in this latest interview. The best examples, totally out of context:
To celebrate its 125th birthday, The Wall Street Journal got a bunch of big names to write down their thoughts on what tomorrow will be like for a package called “The Future of Everything.” Mark Zuckerberg wrote about how the internet needs to—and will—be accessible to everyone one day; Taylor Swift revealed musicians just need to keep surprising their fans to keep the music industry alive. Oh, and Tyra Banks predicted everyone will have a robot friend who they rely on to boost their self-esteem—so basically, society is doomed.
Not everyone’s predictions are as extreme as Banks’ though: Director Christopher Nolan thinks movie theaters are going to be swankier and AMC’s Josh Sapan believes quality TV will eventually dominate and leave little room for unoriginal series. OK, so maybe we aren’t doomed after all. READ FULL STORY
It’s a tale as old as time: Creepy old woman asks to use your phone on a cold prologue night, elementary school-age prince declines because his parents raised him well, aforementioned spinster casts a curse on the kid and his entire staff, whose only crime was trying to get by on the crazy merry-go-round we call This Provincial Life.
That’s how Beauty and the Beast transformed a whole ensemble of domestic workers into pieces of furniture and assorted household objects. Certainly it was an unfortunate fate for all of The Beast’s staff, but especially for the ones with bad enough karma to be transformed into, say, a wardrobe—or worse, a teacup without a face.
