These adorable cinematic couples will make you swoon

Valentine’s Day is here again, and rather than dwell on how to spend Single’s Awareness Day (most likely in our shorts, on the couch, eating Velveeta) we choose instead to focus instead on movies that give us hope for the future. Hope that, yes indeed, true love exists. Real love for LGBTQ couples–the kind that lasts through the end credits, anyway–can prove difficult to find in the movies. Perhaps that helps these particular couples stand out. All find love by the time the movie ends, and get ...

Jim Carrey Puts A Dramatic Spin On His Old Iconic Comedy Lines

I would watch the hell out of an Ace Ventura musical to be honest It goes without saying that Jim Carrey is one of the greatest forces of nature in the comedy world. Like other comedy giants such as Robin Williams and Eddie Murphy, saying that Jim Carrey is funny just doesn’t cut it — it’s not just a trait or a talent, it’s more like a sixth sense or a superpower. His comedic prowess isn’t his only superhuman ability, however. It’s a well-known fact that Jim is also a god-tier dramatic ac...

Pee-wee's Big Adventure isn't the only movie with a Rube Goldberg breakfast machine

I was **this** many years old when I learned that Pee-wee Herman isn't the only on-screen character with a breakfast-making contraption. My sweetie Andy just re-watched the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and told me it also has a Rube Goldberg machine that makes breakfast! I didn't know about that one, so I looked it up. And there it was. Then I wondered if there were more... and there are! First, let's start with Pee-wee's, which might be the best known one in pop culture (it even gets ripp...

Stopping The Stench: City Leaders Propose Public Restroom In Cesar Chavez Park

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — As California’s homeless problem grows, so does another issue: human waste on the streets. Sacramento lawmakers could be one step closer to a solution. Frustration from business owners is forcing the city to react, proposing to install a Portland Loo. The stand-alone public restroom would be placed at Cesar Chavez Park across from City Hall. The “Loo” will cost just over $300,000. The makers say it’s a safe place that’s designed to deter crime. It’s built with slightly open ...

How Dick Cavett Brought Sophistication to Late Night Talk Shows: Watch 270 Classic Interviews Online

Just as the avuncular presence of Ed Sullivan helped ease middle America into accepting Elvis Presley and The Beatles, the aw-shucks midwestern charm of Dick Cavett made Woodstock hippies seem downright cuddly when he had Jefferson Airplane, David Crosby, and Joni Mitchell on just after the legendary music festival in 1969. He had a way of making everyone around him comfortable enough to reveal just a little more than they might otherwise. (See Jimi Hendrix talk about his National Anthem...

When Robin Williams & Steve Martin Starred in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting For Godot (1988)

Despite the dourest demeanor in literary history and a series of plays and novels set in the bleakest of conditions, there’s no doubt that Samuel Beckett was foremost a comic writer. Indeed, it is because of these things that he remains a singularly great comic writer. The deepest laughs are found, as in that old Mel Brooks quote, in the most absurdly tragic places. In Beckett, however, characters don’t just tell jokes about the wretched exigencies of human life, they fully embody all th...
