Are You Ready to Be a Martian?

The folks at NASA are now accepting applications.

They're looking for new astronauts - the first new class in about four years.

Interested?

You need a sense of adventure, certainly, and the ability to spend long amounts of time in cramped conditions.

You also need a bachelor's degree in math, science or engineering, plus some sort of experience or a military background.

They're looking for a dozen or so new astronauts, and they've already had over 6000 on-line applications.

Don't let that scare you away.

If you think you've got the right stuff, let NASA know.

Take that bold step!

Can We Get Betty White to Review Every Movie From Now On????

This is the best thing I've seen in a long time.

Betty White - yes, we can call her #NationalTreasure - sat down in an empty movie theater to give her own personal review of Deadpool.

The Ryan Reynolds comic book sorta-superhero flick opens today in a theater near you.

But Betty got a sneak preview - because, after all, she's Betty White! - and took the time to let us all know what she thought.

If someone doesn't grab this idea and turn it into a regular web feature, we will all lose out!
 

Betty White's Review of Deadpool

I love Ryan Reynolds…here are a few of my thoughts about his new movie #Deadpool.

Posted by Betty White on Thursday, February 11, 2016

And just in case you haven't seen the trailers for the movie - hey, it could happen - here's one of them.

Just Saying the Name Hurts

The folks at Levi's have a new style of jean ready for you to try on.

It's called the Wedgie.

Hurts just thinking about it, doesn't it?

According to the official word, Wedgies will hug your waist, your hips and your butt and make all of the above look wonderful.

They say you should not be conjuring up images of someone yanking your underwear up in a quick and painful manner.

I would suggest to the marketers that maybe they should experience a wedgie before they give its name to an item of apparel.

Slip Sliding Away the Super Bowl Way

If you watched the Snoozer Bowl on Sunday, you know there were a lot of complaints about the condition of the field at Levi's Stadium.

You wouldn't expect issues, since the weather conditions were near perfect for football.

Still, a lot of players had to change cleats in the middle of the game due to footing concerns.

This little vine got posted on Wednesday by a guy who covers the Carolina Panthers, showing Michael Oher on the offensive line getting pushed back by a defender like he was on ice skates.

Watch the Vine - Oher's the guy in the bottom left of the screen, getting pushed in Cam Newton's direction.

It's pretty funny - and makes you wonder if the field had been sprayed down with WD-40 or something...

Wait a Minute... Is this Leogate?

Harvey Weinstein, a big Hollywood producer and a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, made a statement on Wednesday that's causing a bit of a stir in the film community.

He and Leonardo DiCaprio were together at a function in New York, and Harvey made a speech that included this tidbit:
 
"As an Academy member, you're not supposed to endorse anyone up for an Academy Award, but I have to say Leo DiCaprio is so amazing in The RevenantHis devoztion and the way he rolls it all up into something beautiful is amazing. I've never worked with anyone who's so wonderful and so classy."

Nice words, but as a member of the Academy, he's not supposed to say anything that could be seen as an endorsement.

And even with his disclaimer at the start of the statement, how can you not see this as him saying he wants Leo to win an Oscar for Best Actor?

Let's see if this controversy gets any bigger.

Meanwhile, in case you haven't seen the movie, here's what all the buzz is about...

Protecting Han Solo

Britain's Health and Safety Executive - the equivalent of OSHA in the United States - announced yesterday that they're suing the production company behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

You may remember that Harrison Ford broke his leg in June, 2014 when a hydraulic door closed the wrong way on the set of the Millennium Falcon.

The HSE believes that the production company didn't take reasonable steps to protect its workers.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out - English bureaucracy versus the megalopoly known as Disney.

Meanwhile, who do we see about what Kylo Ren did to Han Solo? Huh? Who's going to take care of that?

Goldie Hawn May Be Returning To The Big Screen!


Almost two months to the day that Kristin Cavallari's brother Michael Cavallari was found dead in Utah three miles from where his car was wrecked, the police have revealed his cause of death. Kristin Cavallari's brother's death was accidental and caused by hypothermia from exposure to cold temperatures. I'm sure this is a very painful time for their family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

Goldie Hawn has still got the acting gene and she may be bringing it back to the big screen after almost 15 years! She's reportedly in talks to make her film return in a comedy starring Amy Schumer! Goldie Hawn would play Amy Schumer's mother. Goldie Hawn, who is now 70, was last seen in the 2002 comedy "The Banger Sisters, "alongside Susan Sarandon. I would love to see her on the big screen again!

If you watched The People v. O.J. Simpson Wednesday night, there's a scene that probably stands out to you. The FX series showed the Kardashian children excitedly cheering and chanting the family name as they watched their father read on live television what was then believed to be O.J.'s suicide letter. This scene apparently never happened in real life and the Kardashians are furious about it because it makes them look like they were fame hungry kids. They are happy with how their father is being portrayed but feel they should be left out of it. After all, they were just kids. Hey when you're a celebrity, apparently nothing is off limits!

It looks like Lady Gaga won't be the only person making history at the Grammys on Monday. Gwen Stefani will be making history as well. She teamed up with Target to produce the first music video created on live television for her upcoming single "Make Me Like You." The performance will take place during a four-minute commercial break during the Grammys. That's right, the first LIVE music video! The video will have multiple sets and real-time costume changes. There will even be special surprises for fans! Pretty cool!
Want to make the perfect hot dog? Call up Snoop Dogg and he'll teach you how! Burger King knew he was the perfect pitchman to explain their hot dogs in a new employee training video and they shot a video that is now being shown to all Burger King employees. Snoop Dogg introduces them to "Grilled Dogs," which are set to debut later this month. Execs wanted to add a fun twist to make everyone excited about it! Snoop Dogg, Burger King's "Grilled Dogs Training Ambassador." Now that's a title!

Once Beyoncé' made a surprise announcement about her upcoming Formation World Tour during the Super Bowl, fans started to freak out because they are dying to see her live! There's one problem though… the price of tickets! Several fans are taking matters into their own hands by starting GoFundMe pages to raise money for concert tickets. The craziest part is that people are actually donating! Some fans are going so far as trying to raise $5,000 so that they can see the tour from the front row! Tickets will be available to the general public on Monday. Good luck!

Ryan Reynolds is opening up about how he and his wife Blake Lively wound up getting together and the story is hilarious! They were just friends when they were filming The Green Lantern together six years ago, but after it wrapped a new flame ignited out of nowhere. In fact, it happened while they were on a double date with other people! Ryan Reynolds said, "About a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single we went on a double date – she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl – and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across." AWKWARD!

"We Joined In, As Though We Were Part of It"

Katie Holmes visited The Tonight Show this week.

She was there to promote her new movie, Touched with Fire.

But the chat turned to the Super Bowl, and Katie had to admit she didn't watch the game.

She did make a point to check out the halftime show, just to see Beyonce

And she even took a moment to do her imitation - such as it is - of Queen Bey.

The crowd seemed to like it.

I'm trying to figure out why...

How Low Can You Go?

Gas prices in the US are dipping low.

In some cases, even lower than the experts predicted.

I know I paid $1.77 a gallon up the street yesterday - and truth be told, I felt like I was stealing it.

A fill-up for under $20? When's the last time that happened?

The folks at NBC News managed to find a station in the midwest that was selling gas for 99 cents a gallon.

Don't get too comfortable though. The experts - you know, the same people who said prices couldn't get this low - say the prices should start heading in the other direction early in March.

Maybe they're not experts after all. Maybe they're just spoilsports.

What do you think?
