The Flight of the Conchords are going on tour. It appears that this is more than a reunion tour, according to the website details:

Jemaine and Bret have new material, which they’ll be showcasing on the road this summer. The “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords” tour begins on June 11th in the great city of Cleveland, OH and ends July 27th in Los Angeles, CA.


Even if you're not a fan, you may have heard of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Their careers in the States really took off after the HBO TV show 'Flight of the Conchords' based on their comedic two-man band. This is very exciting news for fans. Although they've mentioned a movie in the works, according to Wikipedia they haven't gotten together for a Flight of the Conchords performance since 2012 as part of a Red Nose Day charity video from New Zealand:

Nickelodeon is bringing Legends of the Hidden Temple back! But not in the way you might expect. Instead of a tiny American Gladiators game show, it will be a movie. According the Variety, it will still include all your favorite elements from the show:

In “Hidden Temple,three siblings must conquer a series of obstacles to remain alive, mirroring the theme of the original game show. The TV movie, slated to appear in the fourth quarter of 2016, will nod to other elements from the original show, including Olmec, a talking head who knows the secrets behind the temple; the Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and cameos from a green monkey, red jaguar and silver snakes, among others.


Hopefully they will still have to assemble the Silver Monkey to make it out alive. Sure, it looks easy, but the suspense is real.

The fossil of an ancient shrimp-like crustacean has been discovered with possibly the most well-preserved nervous system ever found.  It's called a Chengjiangocaris kunmingensis and it lived 520 million years ago.  This specimen doesn't only show large nerve clusters as pictured. Some of the finest fibers of nerve tissue are also observable under a microscope.

Scientists are hoping that this fossil will give new insight into the evolution of nervous systems, particularly in modern worms and arthropods who are both related to this animal.

Stephen King confirmed the casting of a movie based on the 'Dark Tower' book series on Twitter:

If you're wondering who's who, Idris Elba offers a pretty obvious clue:

So it seems like Idris Elba will be 'the gunslinger'. That leaves McConaughey as the 'man in black'.

The casting of Idris Elba as 'the gunslinger', also named Roland Deschain, has brought some controversy. As with any movie that casts a traditionally white character as someone of any other race, there was some backlash. There are also fans who were concerned about the change affecting Deschain's relationship with a major character in the story. Well, the producer of the movie and apparent badass, Akiva Goldsman, spoke to IGN to assuage everyone's worries:

I understand that people who are thoughtful about the storytelling and the racial politics of the storytelling might want to understand how that informs that storytelling, and I respect that and I hear that, and those things are not things we didn't think about or don't think about. The racist a--holes should go f--k themselves.


For anyone who somehow still isn't convinced that Idris Elba is the right man for the job, it's worth noting that Stephen King himself is also totally cool with it:

With any luck, 'The Dark Tower' is set to release January 27, 2017.

At 90 years old, just two days after her husband of 67 years passed away, Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Cancer treatment can be grueling and in Norma's case, it would be risky. According to her son on their Facebook page Driving Miss Norma, her doctor said that in addition to the much lower quality of life she would have had while going through treatment there was no guarantee that she would survive the initial surgery at all. 

Instead of going through with treatment she's been lucky enough to hop in an RV and travel with her son and daughter-in-law. 



They take her anywhere she wants to go and have been documenting their travels. She's become an inspiration to others who are in the process of making tough choices at the end of life.

Josh Reed, a very tall, bearded man with light colored hair made it to Germany through a London airport with a passport that belonged to his much shorter, brown haired girlfriend. 

He told The Sun, "I thought it was my passport, the lady checked it with my boarding pass. It wasn’t until we landed that I spotted it."

Even if they looked exactly alike, Reed said he and his girlfriend have different last names which is something that should be easy to spot on his ticket.  

Reed's girlfriend ended up sending his passport to him so he could return. As for the airport, they have promised to step it up on security checks.

He's been on Ellen and been swatted, and now the kid behind 'Damn Daniel' has had his Twitter account hacked. Whoever took over his account deleted his original viral video with 340,000 retweets, and posted a bunch of uncomfortable racist stuff instead. Some media outlets are reporting that he got hacked by the KKK or by horrible racists, but it's more likely that whoever did this just wanted to make Josh look as bad as possible. What better way to do that than with stuff like this:





Josh has regained access to his account, and it looks like he's hoping Twitter will help him get the video back.
