Today = crazy bananas for me, but I couldn’t let the day pass without mentioning the reemergence of Tebowie to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. Thanks to the triple overtime Stanley Cup game, my DVR recording of the episode was all thrown off. Stupid hockey 🙂 Some year I will actually start watching hockey again; I liked it when I watched (and actually grew up getting dragged to going to hockey games) but I need to be prompted to watch by someone else. History has shown that I won’t do it on my own, which means I guess I have to start dating a hockey fan (I’m OK with that – hockey fans seem like good people).
I have a fondness in my heart for Tebowie, as this character was one of the reasons I decided to give Fallon’s late night show another chance after his rocky start. I saw a clip of it and thought it was so original, clever and clearly played to Fallon’s strengths with music. Tebowie indirectly led to my rediscovering of one of my favorite shows on TV, so anytime he makes a repeat appearance I am happy.
I wondered how long it would take for Fallon to dust off Tebowie once it was announced that Tim Tebow had signed with the Patriots. As a Bills fan, I was just glad that Tebow didn’t come to Buffalo as I feared that he brings too much hoopla and would pose a distraction. The Bills have enough problems; they don’t need a media circus that trails in Tebow’s wake. I am pretty happy that he has remained in the AFC East, as the Bills have had good luck when facing Tebow in the past; they handed Denver one of their few losses in 2011. Plus it will be nice to have something to watch within the division once the Bills are inevitably knocked out of playoff contention sometime in November.
So while I sit in on 250 meetings and conference calls today, enjoy the triumphant return of Tebowie:
Happy Wednesday! The sun is actually shining today, which gives me hope that the rain is behind us for a while. I was so over the dreariness. The good news about all the rain is that it gave me plenty of time to hole up and surf the web in search of pop culture stories to share with you, my dear readers. I found more videos of interest than usual, so this week is more audio/visual heavy than usual. Why read when you can just click a button and watch? Enjoy your biweekly roundup of all things pop!
The Dumb and Dumber sequel that would reunite Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels has been dropped by Warner Brothers. Directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly are shopping the project to other companies. Countdown until the inevitable Kickstarter?
One thing Kanye ain’t lacking is confidence, as evidenced by this New York Times article with the self-proclaimed “visionary.” The most ridiculous quotes are here.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Scott Thorson (Liberace’s Ex) about HBO’s Behind the Candelabra (a must see – Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are fantastic and you have to see Rob Lowe to believe it).
Singer Jon Marco isn’t famous, but he’s trying to make a name for himself with a video that features recreations of several 80s movies. Not so sure about the song, but I’ll give him points for creativity.
