The death of Carrie Fisher has affected millions around the world, and the tributes keep pouring in.
In honor of the late actor, Alamo Drafthouse movie theater chain held a lightsaber vigil for Fisher last night in Anaheim, Ca and Austin, Tx, and the pictures are beautiful and accurately reflect the impact that Fisher had on millions.
Check out some pictures of the tributes.
Since the announcement of a new Mummy movie sans Brendan Fraser, fans of the former Encino Man have been making moves to save the 48-year-old actor’s career. Fraser, who has largely been unseen since his role in the (somehow) Oscar-winner Crash, has kept a low profile these last few years. But in the weeks since the Mummy trailer’s release, intense fan interest has emerged.
Over 34,000 signatures now grace a change.org petition to “Bring Brendan Fraser back into film/television.” Following his 2007, the petition reads, Fraser is required by law to pay $900,000 annually in alimony. The petition pleads with he networks to help get Fraser “back on his feet again” because “we miss him.”
Other efforts to rescue a man that has rescued us from a dull time at the movies many times over have included the #SaveBrendanFraser hashtag on Twitter and, as The New York Post points out, “successfully campaigned to get his ranking on IMDb among the top 500 actors.”
As for the new Mummy, Fraser has given Cruise his blessing saying, “Tom’s going to be great in it. He has incredible worldwide appeal.”
We miss you, Brendan. Good luck.
In what is hopefully the last bit of Bee Movie meme-ing this year, a freshman at Baylor University wrote the script to Bee Movie by hand for his girlfriend as some sort of Christmas gift. Who says romance isn’t dead ironic?
Conner Fastenau spent three hours, three human hours, 180-EARTH MINUTES, transcribing the 2007 script to Bee Movie, the film about a talking bee that Jerry Seinfeld made for some reason, as sign of his romantic attraction for an adult human woman. She reportedly “got a good laugh,” so it was “worth it,” Fastenau told Buzzfeed.
Bee Movie has been the subject of a strange resurgence of late. Earlier this year, someone put the script to Bee Movie on a shirt in really small print, and just last month, a video that featured all of Bee Movie except every time someone said “bee” the playback sped up went viral. The world continues to be in awe not only of Bee Movie’s very existence, but also ongoing cultural relevance.
As Steve Jobs would say, "It just works."
The good thing about iPhones is that there is an infinite amount of ways to destroy them. Whether you’re interested in a crushing, a frying, or an old fashioned dunking in the toilet, there's a iPhone death for you. Unlike the actual phone, the destruction of an iPhone is entirely customizable.
However, few iPhone deaths are as cool as the one The Backyard Scientists pulled off in this video. Taking a page from Terminator 2: Judgement Day’s saddest scene, they dipped their iPhone in Lava to similar results.
This isn’t as sad as that moment, but it’s still really cool. Once it’s submerged, the iPhone comes completely apart. But the real money is when they pour the contents into a cast-iron pan, which looks straight-up like T-1000. You’ve got to check this out.
Tip of the day: Tip!
It’s not easy working for tips. It takes time, patience, and sometimes your own money. Some of you may think,
hey, get a better a job," but we should all at least be under the assumption that if you are doing a service, compensation is a required. Unless, we're looking at different form of economics, like one where we exchange Pez for goods and services.
Well, someone needed to tell Hollywood director Brett Ratner, who is worth $65 million. Ratner, who directed several monster hits, including the Rush Hour movies, Red Dragon, Tower Heist, and X-Men: The Last Stand, bought an iPhone for $950 through a delivery app. But when it was delivered, he forgot to tip his delivery man.
Unbenownst to him, the delivery driver was a Los Angeles comedian named Ben Avery, who expected a tip. When Ratner failed to give him one to compensate for his time, energy, and gas, he decided to “tweet at him once a day asking for $5."
Avery told The Daily Dot, he figured “[Ratner] would probably block me or whatever. Two weeks go by of me tweeting at him until he finally responds.”
Check out the exchange from The Daily Dot and remember to always tip!
Can’t wait for the movie!
The new book Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration by David King is for sale on Amazon.

By all accounts, it’s a real book. There’s a jacket, a spine, paper pages, etc. By all accounts David King is a real author. The cover even declares him a “political analyst.” By all accounts, the unaccredited review on the cover, which reads “‘Refreshingly honest’” underneath five stars, is a real review. It has to be real or else why would they put it there?
The information inside supports this argument. King’s latest treatise on that why reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month deserves trust, respect, and admiration is completely empty, not a word in it. It’s filled with blank, empty pages. Any question? The book’s description clears up any questions:
“This book is full of blank pages. Despite years of research, we could not find anything to say on this subject, so please feel free to use this book for notes.”
Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is on sale now for $7.99. It’s Prime ready and the page features this advertisement:
Does that mean Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is one of the best books of 2016? Probably not, but it really makes you think.
