Watch: The Blooper Reel From ‘The Avengers’ Hits The Internets

Bloopers Assemble

Earlier this year the superhero film The Avengers took the box office by storm by setting a new box office record and stealing the hearts of freaks, geeks and weirdos all around the world. Many believe The Avengers to be a cinematic masterpiece of comic book geekdom … BUT, did you know that the polished and brilliant film that we saw was built on countless mistakes and bloopers? The forthcoming release of The Avengers will feature a blooper/gag reel that showcases some of the funnier mistakes that occurred while filming but that blooper reel mysteriously made its way to the Internets today. Watch the video above and prepare to laugh, it’s really quite hilarious. I’m not sure how long the video will stay online so watch it while you can. Enjoy!

The Mexican Supreme Court Rules That All Mexican States Must Recognize Same-Sex Weddings Performed In Mexico City

Back in December of 2009, the capital city of Mexico City legalized same-sex marriage in Mexico. Today we learn that the Mexican Supreme Court has ruled on that legalization by ordering that all 31 Mexican states recognize the same-sex weddings that have been and will be performed in Mexico City. For example, the US state of New York has legalized same-sex marriage but the other 49 US states are not required to recognize those marriages. Because of this ruling, same-sex couples who get married in Mexico City and then move to another state will be afforded the same rights as married heterosexual couples anywhere in the country of Mexico. This is amazing! More »

Shock! Amanda Bynes ALLEGEDLY Involved In Her Third Car Accident In Six Months

Over the course of the past 6 months, former actress and current trainwreck Amanda Bynes was involved in 1 DUI arrest (after she, allegedly, sideswiped a parked police car) and 2 hit-and-run accidents involving other drivers (one in May, one earlier this month). Today we learn that Amanda has added one more case of ALLEGED hit-and-run after she caused another driver to rear end her rental car. Funny enough, Bynes was driving a rental car because her own car is still in the body shop from her last case of ALLEGED hit-and-run. I mean, seriously, what the eff is going on with this girl?

Watch: Garbage Releases A Music Video For ‘Big Bright World’

Step Inside This Big, Bright World

Pop/Rock band Garbage, who has released my favorite album of 2012 thus far, is readying their return to the US for a string of concert dates this Fall after spending the Summer touring Europe, Asia and beyond and today they bless us with a music video for their new single Big Bright World. Way back in April, before the album Not Your Kind of People was released, we got to check out a fun promo video for Big Bright World. The video above is the official music video. It features Garbage fans underwater, which is just way cool. The band put out an open call for folks to appear in the video and the ones who made the cut are in the video. Check out the video and enjoy. And if you haven’t yet, you MUST pick up a copy of Not Your Kind of People. It will, for sure, end up on my list of favorite albums this year … and as I said, it’s so far my fave album of 2012.
