Treehouse of Horror 25

Anyone else watch it? I think The Simpsons have really kicked it up a notch this season this is one of the more memorable ones for the last few years. Especially the Kubrick mix in the second act.


A decent Steelers fan

15 October 2014 - 12:15 AM

Did anyone else hear it on NFL Radio? This guy was a Steelers fan and he said, "Yeah it felt good beating the Panthers but then I found out they were banged up".

I almost drove off the road. This guy deserves a beer for wanting real competition.

Where should I look? I've been checking out Blue Nile and some local jewelers but this seems like a bigger markup than printer ink.

All Day Foundation Being Investigated

09 October 2014 - 11:14 AM

 

Peterson’s indictment has also thrown a spotlight on his charity, Adrian Peterson’s All Day Foundation, which focuses on at-risk children, particularly girls. The charity shut down its website following the September indictment.

The charity’s 2011 financial report showed $247,064 in total revenue, and listed just three organizations that received money. A fourth outlay, entitled simply “clothing for needy families,” listed “unknown” for the number of recipients.

In 2009, the charity said its largest gift, $70,000, went to Straight From the Heart Ministries in Laurel, Md. But Donna Farley, president and founder of the Maryland organization, said it never received any money from Peterson’s foundation. “There have been no outside [contributions] other than people in my own circle,” said Farley. “Adrian Peterson — definitely not.”

The East Texas Food Bank, based in Tyler, said it received money from Peterson’s foundation in 2009, although the foundation’s tax filing for the year listed just one donation to a food bank — the North Texas Food Bank, based in Dallas.

Colleen Brinkmann, the chief philanthropy officer for the North Texas Food Bank, said that while her agency partnered with Dallas Cowboys players, she could not recall ever getting money from the All Day Foundation. “Was he with the Cowboys before?” she asked of Peterson. “I’m not a football fan.”

This is why I'm leery of so many charities. And the article goes in to all the legal troubles that he's been in. He just doesn't seem like that great of a person.


Spiderman Connected to MCU

08 October 2014 - 03:16 PM

 

So a recent rumor suggests that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are talking aboutconnecting Spider-Man with The Avengers. While these rumors have exploded since the most recent report, these rumors have actually been going around for a couple of years. In fact, at one time, there was supposedly a plan to include the Oscorp Tower in the firstAvengers movie.

Now, Entertainment Weekly has weighed in to both sort of discredit the rumors and also confirm them in a way. In regards to if Spider-Man will be joining the Avengers on the big screen in the near future, EW says their sources confirm that will not be the case. However, EW then goes on to claim that according to their sources it’s a possibility down the road.

According to their report, Sony isn’t interested in sharing Spider-Man at the moment. Sony is reportedly definitely going ahead with Sinister Six. The studio has a great writer/director in Drew Goddard, so they seem to be confident that he can produce a Spider-Man spinoff that will be a hit with audiences.

However, if Sinister Six flops, then reportedly Sony could consider doing a deal with Marvel Studios. Of course, this is nothing different than most fans without sources have speculated online. Sony has to make a film utilizing the Spider-Man characters every three years in order to retain the license. We’re assuming that Sinister Six will include Spider-Man in some form or fashion and will count as a Spider-Man film.
