Charlie Sheen Back On Two and Half Men?!

Posted on Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

It’s not very likely, but Charlie Sheen says he’s reached out to the producers of “Two And Half Men” because he wants to appear on the last episode.

No word from the show’s people if it will actually happen, but Sheen says they responded and are thinking about it.

While we wait to find out, let’s watch this again:


Also, remember the kid who played Jake? He looked like this:

…yea, well now he looks like this:


Emma Watson’s UN Speech On Feminism Is Perfect.

Posted on Monday, September 22nd, 2014

You may have heard awhile back about a new anti-feminist Facebook Page called “I Don’t Need Feminism Because..”, which sparked some public outrage and disappointment.

But more importantly, it sparked a conversation on what “feminism” really means.

This speech was not a direct response to this particular page or movement, but I think it’s a damn good one.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson recently became the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, and was asked to give a major speech on feminism, to help launch a new equality campaign called #HeForShe.

SPOILER ALERT: this video is NOT just for women. It’s for everyone. Please watch and share!

“It is not the word that’s important, it’s the idea and the ambition behind it.”

I’ll be honest, I got a little emotional watching it.

Does Barbie Have A Potty Mouth?!

Posted on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

A mother in the UK has complained to Mattel (the peeps who make Barbie) about the new talking doll she bought for her daughter…

…because Barbie, came with a potty mouth.

Mom says Barbie is yelling “WTF?!”

Mattel says what Barbie is actually saying, is “Off The Hook!!”

You be the judge:



At the end of the day, I think we can all agree Barbie could use a better recording studio…


iPhone: How To Dump U2′s New Album

Posted on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

In case you don’t have internet, a data plan, a newspaper, or any contact to the outside world, ¬†here is a summary of what happened when Apple announced the new iStuff:

  • There’s a 6 and a 6 Plus. They’re bigger.

  • There’s an iWatch you don’t need, but really really want.

  • All iPhones (yes, even your ol’ 5s) get U2′s entire new album “Songs Of Innocence”, that “innocently” made it’s way into your phone, without your consent.

As you may have guessed, some U2 haters (what? You mean not all Apple customers love Bono?!) were not happy about it.

So, Apple has now created an app you can download to easily remove the album, which you can find at itunes.com/soi-remove.

Hope this helps!
