Members of the Westboro Baptist Church demonstrated outside the Lorde concert in Kansas City Friday night, but a group of counter protesters had a more powerful message.
‘Sorry for your loss,’ read a sign held by anti-Westboro demonstrators, referring to the death last week of the church’s longtime pastor Fred Phelps.
‘We realized that it wasn’t so much about antagonizing them,’ Megan Coleman, who helped make the sign, told KSHB News. ‘But sending out the countered (statement) that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity.’
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

I’m tired. Sleepy. Zero work motivation. And when I’m in this state, I tend to get grumpy, easily agitated.
During periods such as these I tend to gravitate toward these kinds of beats:

It takes a certain talent to spoof a band’s style without coming off as corny or idiotic. It takes a master to build on that spoof with the perfect accompanying video.
Earlier this year, comedian Freddy Scott released the Nine Inch Nails parody track, “This Is a Trent Reznor Song,” encapsulating frontman Trent Reznor’s penchant for odd percussion, eerie pianos and shifting vocal dynamics ranging from hushed to screaming. Now, he goes one step further, releasing a music video lampooning Reznor’s mid-Nineties Lynchian-meets-Victorian visual style.
Perfect indeed with not only the music and lyrics but also the dances moves, the gripping microphone and head shakes.

A video that appears to capture the moment a CTA Blue Line train jumped the platform and landed on an escalator at O’Hare International Airport has become an overnight YouTube sensation.
The video — which seems to be from a security camera — shows two men talking atop the escalator as the train pulls into the station. Both flee when they see the train catapult up the escalator.
The Chicago Transit Authority would not confirm the video’s authenticity. The National Transportation Safety Board did not respond to requests for comment, but plans to hold a news conference later today.
Interesting choice of the words “appear” and “seems to” when describing what is obviously happening.
I was crossing my fingers, hoping Keanu would jump out Matrix cartwheel style.

Our ever reliable sources (same folks who told us about Rocket Raccoon) are informing us that while Harrison Ford might still play Indiana Jones in the next film of the franchise, the window of making that happen is getting smaller and smaller.
There is a date and if Indiana Jones 5 is not moving forward by then, the studios are 100% prepared to recast a younger Dr. Jones and ready up a new trilogy.
Don’t think of it as a reboot but just recasting the same way the James Bond (Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig) movies have been doing for the better part of five decades.
And who just might be one of the actors that the studio is looking at ? The word is that they are looking at several but Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list.
[…] Cooper is one of the biggest male stars in Hollywood right now without a major franchise […] and he could do the part justice […]
While I am usually against rebooting franchises just for the sake of doing it, in my opinion, Indiana Jones is long overdue for a reboot. Or, should I say, a simple recasting (and definitely not a remake of an existing film; I think anyone who attempts to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark who aren’t a group of little kids deserve to fail.) Indy was conceived by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg as the American James Bond, and 007 has been played by six actors now over the course of fifty years […] It’s time this generation had their own version of the estimable Dr. Henry Jones Jr. to call its own.
Just let Dr. Jones rest in peace, he doesn’t need to go the way of Bond. We don’t need another sequel or reboot or revamp. It’ll kill the magic and spoil the legacy.
This generation doesn’t need a version to call their own, they need their own hero.
The Indiana franchise is huge but must everything be milked to the point of zero credibility?
I sound like a crotchety old man.
