Dear Joss Whedon, bring this to life
I’ve been meaning to post this video for a few days now but better late than never. A very talented Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan named Stephen Byrne has created an opening title sequence for a fiction TV series titled The Animated Adventures of Buffy. As you can see above, the animation is really expertly done … so much so that it really makes me wish the TV series really existed. Sigh. I’ve watched this video clip over and over for a few days now and I never get tired of watching. If only Joss Whedon could find a way to bring this animated series to life … then all of my dreams could come true. Buffy fans, watch this video and fall in love.
"I remember the whole thing as one big favorite moment"
Last week we saw video of composer Danny Elfman doing a reading from The Nightmare Before Christmas in front of The Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland and today we get to see another Danny Elfman in Disneyland video. If you can believe it, Danny had never ridden the Haunted Mansion Holiday ride before last week so he was interviewed about the ride afterward, which is the video above. I love HalloweenTime at Disneyland mainly because I am a HUGE fan of the Halloween revamp The Haunted Mansion ride gets each year. Click the embed above to hear Danny talk about his thoughts on the ride and then make your plans to get to Disneyland immediately! Maybe I’ll see you there!!
Go Go Go, Moses
Back in July we got our first look at the first trailer for the new Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film in the embed above. Because it’s a Ridley Scott film and because it stars Christian Bale as Moses, I’ll probably be seeing this movie in theaters. My fear is that the movie may be a snoorefest until Moses and God unleash the CGI plagues on the people of Egypt (kinda like how Titanic is boring as heck until the ship hits the ice berg and the CGI destruction of the ship gets underway). Check out the trailer and see if it looks like a movie that you would like to see. All I know is that if the parting of the Red Sea scene isn’t handled properly, I’m going to be really bummed out.
"The Friend Contract is DEAD!"
Earlier today we learned of the POSSIBILITY that Bethenny Frankel may return for the upcoming new season of The Real Housewives of NYC (which Bethenny has neither confirmed nor denied) and right now, we get to check in with the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The 7th season of RHOA will premiere on Bravo on November 9 and as you can see in the just-released first trailer above, the new season is full of D-R-A-M-A. There are new Housewives this season (Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan) who will, of course, rile up the other castmembers. Porsha Williams has been demoted from a full castmember to just a recurring castmember (much like the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was demoted on RHONY) and Phaedra was forced to call the cops on her estranged husband Apollo. Yes, the new season looks goooooood, y’all. Get your first look at the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta above and determine if the new season looks interesting to you.
Creepy As F**k
Yesterday we got to see the first official trailer for the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show and today we get to see another great promo video from the show. The opening title sequence for the new season of Freak Show has been released and as you can see above, it’s freaky as Hell. Each season, the opening title sequence is customized to fit the theme of the season and with a theme like Freak Show, they really had a lot to work with. I should warn you, this video features quite a few different scary-ass clowns so … take heed. This title sequence will open every single episode of AHS: Freak Show once it premieres on FX on October 8.
Finally! A Female Host!!!
Sarah Silverman will host this coming weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and today we get to check out her just-released promos for the show.

Click the embed above to see Sarah‘s SNL promos and set those DVRs for her episode this Saturday night … live from New York.
Earlier this month, actor Neil Patrick Harris married his partner of 10 years David Burtka in an intimate ceremony attended by close family and friends at a castle in Italy, as one does, and as you may recall, he shared photos from the couple’s nuptials HERE and HERE.

Bow Down, seriously
Yesterday we heard the official audio of Aretha Franklin‘s cover of Adele‘s song Rolling in the Deep, which is featured on Aretha‘s new album of cover songs titled Aretha Franklin Sings The Diva Classics. Some folks took issue with the song’s production so today, I present to you Franklin‘s LIVE performance of Rolling in the Deep from The Late Show with David Letterman last night. As you can hear in the embed above, Aretha blended her performance of Rolling with the Ashford & Simpson classic Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. This, my friends, is the undisputed Queen of Soul in action. IT IS SO GOOD!! Watch the performance above and then click below to watch video of Aretha‘s interview with Letterman from last night’s show. More »
