That 14-Year Old Girl Who Posted A Terrorist Threat On Twitter Has Been Arrested

#Rotterdam #Police #Force

LMAOOOO!!!! Remember that 14-year old girl who claimed to be a member of Al Qaida and posted a terrorist threat against American Airlines yesterday as a joke? Well, her dumb ass got arrested early today in her home country of the Netherlands. The Rotterdam Police posted an update on their official Twitter account announcing that the girl who posted the threat on Twitter yesterday has been arrested. I know these kinds of threats are no laughing matter AT ALL but the consequences for an idiotic action like this are kinda funny if you consider the level of stupidity it takes to do something this foolish. Read on for more deets. More »

Watch: The Museum Of Awkward Family Photos Makes An Appearance On ‘KTLA Morning News’

Starring my BFF Adriana!!!
Awkward and Amazing

Last week we learned that the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica, CA was taken over by a new exhibit by Awkward Family Photos that features a real life awkward photo of my dear friend Adriana (you may recall she was in attendance of the opening night event last week as well). This morning, Adriana was featured on the KTLA Morning News (my favorite morning news program here in LA) where she was interviewed by Allie Mac Kay live on the air. I managed to record the interview for sharing here with all y’all. Watch above and see how adorably awkward my friend Adriana is. Wait for it … her statement at the 2:15 mark is PRICELESS :)

Seattle Police Release Even More Photos From The Kurt Cobain Death Scene

A sad portrait of Kurt's final days

Last week, the Seattle Police Department revealed that they found a roll of undeveloped film from the 1994 Kurt Cobain death scene. A day or so later, they released a couple photos from that role of film. Today we get to see a bunch more photos from the death scene, including Polaroid photos not included in the newfound undeveloped roll of film, in a new batch of previously unseen photos from the death scene. These new photos feature the suicide note that Kurt left with a pen shoved through it, which really only adds to the sad scene. It’s still hard to believe that Cobain has been gone for 20 years now. Hopefully the release of these photos will finally put that day back in 1994 to final rest.

The Prime Minister Of Malaysia Has Announced That Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ‘Ended’ In The Southern Indian Ocean

"All lives are lost"

Sad news coming out of Kuala Lumpur just moments ago as Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced to the world that missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been determined to be officially lost. Citing special satellite data, Razak revealed that the official determination is that Flight 370 “ended in the Southern Indian Ocean” with families reportedly being informed that “all lives are lost”. As you may recall, there was a glimmer of hope last week that plane wreckage was possibly found but that glimmer faded away (as did subsequent possible wreckage sightings) as the search turned up no sign of plane debris. Honestly, even tho this final determination is not too surprising, it is still very sad to know that all 239 lives have been lost. Click below to watch video of Malaysian PM Najib Rezak making this sad announcement a short time ago. More »

Authorities Say They May Have Found Wreckage From Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

The first real sign of hope

On Monday it was reported that Courtney Love believed that she found debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (which at that time had been missing for 9 days) but today, authorities have revealed that they may have actually found wreckage from the missing plane in the Indian Ocean. At this point, the search team from Australia maintains that they found something on satellite footage but have yet to determine what they have found. The airplane and its passengers have been missing for almost 2 weeks now with no sign anywhere of any wreckage so this new discovery is the first sign of hope that the missing plane may have been found.

Watch: An Earthquake Hits LA Right In The Middle Of The ‘KTLA Morning News’

Hit the deck
"EARTHQUAKE!! WE'RE HAVING AN EARTHQUAKE!!!"

Just about an hour ago a 4.4 level earthquake hit Los Angeles centered about 6 miles north of Beverly Hills. The quake struck during today’s morning broadcast of the KTLA Morning News and as you can see in the video embedded above, the shaker took the news anchors by surprise. Megan Henderson, ever the professional, handled the quake with grace … Chris Schauble, the cornball, freaked the eff out as usual. Thankfully, I am currently about 2 hours north of LA in Santa Barbara so I didn’t feel a thing. I’ve been lucky that in my almost 8 years in LA, I’ve managed to miss all of the significant earthquakes cuz they seem to happen when I’m out of town (thank ye gods). Check out the video above to see how this morning’s quake woke up the folks in the City of Angels. Good Morning, LA!

Tragedies In NYC, NY & Austin, TX Claim Innocent Lives

An explosion in NYC, A car crash in Austin

I love to keep things really fun and light-hearted here on the blog but, sadly, I feel compelled to share serious and tragic news stories because of their large scale impact. Yesterday was a deadly day here in the US as tragic accidents in NYC, NY and Austin, TX claimed the lives of far too many innocent people. Early yesterday, an explosion in Harlem ripped apart two buildings and claimed the lives of at least 7 people. Late last night, an alleged drunk driver plowed into a crowd of people enjoying the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, claiming the lives of at least 2 people … leaving others critically injured. My heart goes out to the victims of these tragic incidents and my best wishes go out to the survivors who are clinging to life even now. More »

Watch: Samuel L. Jackson Rips Into A News Reporter Who Confused Him For Laurence Fisburne

“There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial!”
“We don’t all look alike!”

Ugh. So this morning I was watching live the KTLA Morning News broadcast as I do every morning while I work and I was able to watch entertainment reporter Sam Rubin‘s live interview with Samuel L. Jackson as he promoted his new movie RoboCop. From the start, the interview didn’t really get off on the right foot and when Rubin asked Samuel about his Super Bowl commercial, confusing Jackson with Laurence Fishburne who featured in a KIA commercial, Samuel went OFF on Rubin and ripped him a well deserved new one. Now, I have been watching KTLA every morning for pretty much the entire time I’ve been living in LA (almost 8 years), so I’m very familiar with Sam Rubin‘s reporting. I will say, honestly, that he does get things wrong sometimes … he’ll report something that is wrong or a little wrong but it’s not usually a big deal (IMHO). We all make mistakes, I make mistakes like that all the time. I sometimes confuse actors for other actors unintentionally. But this glaring mistake just came at the wrong time, obvs for Samuel L. who decided that he had had enough. Sam Rubin used to go out of his way to make fun of Britney Spears, saying really nasty things about her in his position as a reporter on a local news station — and that has always pissed me off. I tried to call him out on Twitter every time he did something like that and to his credit, he has stopped picking on Britney (he even mentioned on air that I kept calling him out on Twitter). While Sam Rubin isn’t my fave reporter (which is a shame cuz I LOVE KTLA), I couldn’t help but cringe for him the entire time Samuel L. was eviscerating him on live TV. I’m not at all surprised that this video has gone viral. It’s painful to watch but considering how fed up Jackson is at being confused for other Black actors, I guess it was finally time for him to do something about it.
