Watch: ‘Pop Up Video’ Season 2 Is Coming To VH-1

Gotye Gets The 'Pop Up' Treatment
'Pop Up Video' Returns

Last September the much-beloved music video series Pop Up Video returned to VH-1 after a long hiatus away and next week, the show is BACK for season 2. As you can see above, Gotye‘s ridiculously infectious (and seemingly inescapable) hit Somebody That I Used To Know is among the new videos to get the Pop Up treatment. As a long-time fan of Pop Up Video, I am VERY excited that the show is back for season 2. In addition to Gotye, I imagine videos by Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nicki Minaj and more will get popped in season 2. Which videos would YOU like to see on the show this season?

Here We Go Again
Watch Video

For the past 3 years, Paranormal Activity has been scaring up audiences in movie theaters here in the US and around the world. This Fall, the 4th installment of the Paranormal film franchise will debut to try and scare us all over again. The series has been pretty hit or miss for me. I loved Paranormal Activity but I really hated Part 2. I thought Part 3 was entertaining enough so … I’m up for Part 4. The full PA4 trailer won’t be released until tomorrow but today we get to check out two short teaser trailers. Click below to watch the second teaser in full. More »

CBS Is Planning A Reboot TV Series Of ‘The Brady Bunch’

Welp, it was bound to happen sooner or later. In the 90′s, two parody films were made to some success but today we learn that CBS has teamed up with Vince Vaughn to reboot the classic TV series The Brady Bunch. In this instance, tho, the plan is not to remake and retell the Brady story that we already know. This new version of The Brady Bunch will focus on one of the Brady kids all grown up … with a mixed family of his own. Sound interesting? Click below to learn more. More »

Watch: The James Bond Film ‘Skyfall’ Releases A New International Trailer

Meet Bond's Newest Villain
"007, Reporting for Duty"

Back in May we got to check out the first domestic movie trailer for the forthcoming new James Bond film titled Skyfall. Today we get to check out the newly released international trailer for the film … and it is must see. There’s a new villain in town, played by Javier Bardem, and we get to meet him for the first time in this new trailer. We also get a better understanding about the film’s plot line. As I’ve made clear many times before, Daniel Craig is my favorite James Bond. I am very much looking forward to seeing him in action again as 007. I only kinda liked the first trailer, I really love this one.

I Don’t Mind Mondays

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a marginally bizzy day for me. I had a bit of running around to do in the afternoon and then last night, David and I met up with Tam and Rob for a long overdue dinner/hang session. Because David and I have to fly back East this weekend for another wedding (#6 of 8, if you’re keeping count) I had to run a few errands before we fly off again. I managed to get everything done, meet up with David as his office and then make our way to Silverlake to meet up with Tam and Rob. More »
