Big news in the comedy world: Monty Python is set to reunite for a stage show.
Python member Terry Jones told the BBC on Tuesday he's excited the group is reuniting. He said he hopes to make enough money to pay off his mortgage.
The group had its first big success with the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV show, which ran from 1969 until 1974, winning fans around the world with its bizarre sketches. The group branched out into movies including ``Life of Brian'' and backed theatrical shows such as ``Monty Python's Spamalot.''
The five surviving members last performed together in 1998. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, some Americans are looking for ways to modernize their meal.
More than 90-percent of those taking part in a new Pillsbury poll admit turkey will remain their main course. But 16-percent say they'll be offering alternatives to turkey at their Thanksgiving dinner, or preparing their bird in a new way.
Over half will be serving a variety of vegetables along with the traditional side dishes of stuffing, potatoes, and cranberries Ten-percent say their table will also include a side dish based on their cultural heritage. Bread -- primarily in the form of rolls or biscuits -- will be a part of the meal for over 75-percent. And just under 90-percent say pie is an essential part of their Thanksgiving dinner.
Here's some REO to help you prepare for Turkey Day!!
A new survey has found that the Southern drawl is getting points for being sexy.
According to online daters polled on Cupid.com, a Southern accent is the most attractive among the ones found in the U.S. Forty-five percent of men and 28 percent of women said they found in the most appealing. A New York accent was the second most favorable, voted the best by 23 percent of women but only 10 percent of men. Western accents were also considered sexy by 16 percent of men and ten percent of women.
Regions like the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic got snubbed in poll, with only five percent and four percent of the votes, respectively.
Here is a possible example of why that Midwest accent received the snubbing!
The apocalyptic comedy "This Is the End" appropriately marked the end of Blockbuster.
The video rental chain announced on Twitter Monday that a customer rented the Seth Rogen flick Saturday night in Hawaii, making it the last in-store Blockbuster rental ever. Rogen also took to Twitter to acknowledge the end of an era, reminiscing about hanging out at Blockbuster every day when he was in high school.
Blockbuster owners Dish Network announced last week that they were bringing an end to the company's physical distribution elements in the face of increased competition from the likes of Netflix and Redbox.
What do you think? Will you miss Blockbuster or is this an outdated way to watch movies? Hit me up at email@example.com.
I was talking with a drummer friend over the weekend about how drummers who also sing are not commonplace in any genre of music. It made me think...who are the best singing drummers in the history of classic rock music? These are musicians who not only are great behind the kit but also are distinguished in their vocal abilities. Here are my top picks:
1) Phil Collins - solo and Genesis
2) Don Henley - solo and Eagles
3) Ringo Starr - solo and Beatles
4) Levon Helm - The Band
5) Roger Taylor - Queen
