Steve Carell made a special appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to partake in a fun performance of Marvin Gaye‘s song Sexual Healing with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet group The Ragtime Gals. As you might expect, Carell‘s performance with The Ragtime Gals was entertaining, if far from perfect. So, if you’ve ever wondered what Sexual Healing would sound like as a barbershop quartet ragtime song, wonder no longer and have a listen above.
"Out here, everything hurts"
Back in July we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming reboot film Mad Max: Fury Road, which was first screened at San Diego Comic-Con. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film. As you can see in the embed above, this trailer is packed with lots of action … like, a lot of action. The goal here, it seems, is to smash the viewer over the head with intense visuals in an effort to entice them to want to see the movie in full. I can’t say that I’m all that jazzed about a Mad Max remake but I do enjoy watching Tom Hardy on the big screen so … I’m, at the very least, interested. If you add Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult to the mix and, well, I guess I’ll have to see this movie when it opens next year. This second trailer does seem a bit heavy-handed but I do get the sense that it’s the sort of thing the Mad Max fans might enjoy.

The TV Guide
Last night, the series finale episode of Sons of Anarchy aired on FX bringing to a close the 7 season series that loosely told the tale of Shakespeare‘s Hamlet through the lives of a California motorcycle club. I made sure to be in front of my TV set last night to watch the series finale episode Papa’s Goods live as it aired so that the finale wouldn’t be spoiled in any way. I will recap the episode below with commentary and animated gifs so if you have yet to watch last night’s episode, you might want to come back after you do. Altho Sons of Anarchy was far from a perfect show, it definitely ended in a way that left many fans very satisfied and other fans very unsatisfied … which is exactly what one should expect from a series finale episode of any TV show.

"Rediscover a Timeless Story"
The first international trailer (ie. en français) for the upcoming film adaptation of the beloved children’s classic book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been released and as you can see above, the story will be told in a very inventive way. Rather than being a straight forward adaption of the story, The Little Prince will literally jump off the page and come to life in this new animated film. The animation looks amazing, I can’t wait to see more. The Little Prince is such a special book to generations and generations of people, they really have to get this film right. Actors Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Albert Brooks are among the more notable people lending their voices to this film … which is encouraging. But James Franco is also lending his voice to this movie, which is not at all encouraging. BUT, this first trailer does look great so … I’m hoping the full movie will thrill audiences when Le Petit Prince is released in theaters in October of 2015. Click above, have a look … see what you think. Do you J’adore it or nah?
"This award is ... for those forgotten children who want education"
In October, we learned that teenage activist Malala Yousafzai became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize and earlier today, in Oslo, Norway, she was invited to deliver her Nobel lecture as she formally accepted the award on the world stage. As you can imagine, Malala delivered an impassioned speech that further proved that she is absolutely deserving of this high honor. Click below to see Malala Yousafzai posing with her Nobel Peace Prize and read excerpts from her eloquent acceptance speech. More »
'All The Pizza Parties'
Last spring we learned that Macaulay Culkin started a pizza-themed band called The Pizza Underground in, what I believe to be, an attempt to outdo Shia LaBeouf as the wackiest celebrity performance artist on the block. Today we get our first look at The Pizza Underground‘s first official music video for their song All The Pizza Parties. Like the band’s name, All The Pizza Parties is inspired by the Velvet Underground. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be meta or avant garde or even art but … it’s something. If you like pizza, the Velvet Underground and/or Macaulay Culkin then this music video might be right up your alley.
Yeezus jets off to Paris, leaving his family behind
After Kanye West spent a considerable amount of time away from his new wife and child, including missing Thanksgiving with them altogether, rumors began to heat up that the couple might be on the verge of a split. Late last week, Kanye reunited with his family here in SoCal … but only for a few days. Last night, Kanye was spotted making his way through LAX Airport bound for a flight that would take him to Paris, France … once again, leaving his family behind. Kanye was asked by a photographer if the divorce rumors are true and Kanye just threw up a peace sign as he passed by. Now, it’s entirely possible that he was not responding to the question at all but it seems really telling to me that he is choosing, for whatever reason, to spend so much time away from his wife and child. I hope Kanye will be reunited with his family for the coming Xmas holiday but at this point, who knows?

FX just released what they are calling “an extended preview of tomorrow’s Series Finale” but it looks an awful lot like the short promo video that aired last week after the second to last episode aired.
