Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Has Happened In The 5 Months Since
On the night of April 14, 2014, hundreds of schoolgirls at the Chibok boarding school in northeastern Nigeria awoke to the sound of gunfire. They saw men in camouflage approaching and thought soldiers were coming to save them from a militant attack, according to survivors’ accounts.

Like so many other internet causes, the bloom went off the rose, people lost interest, and we all assumed it was fixed, because we Did Something.

Is Daniel Craig Taking Jedi Lessons?
By: Fraser McAlphine

Frankly, this could all just be the kind of overexciteable hogwash you read when there’s a new installment from a beloved movie franchise on the way and it’s got a moveable feast of a cast and the possibility of a ton of extras and some of them will be wearing helmets and latex face-masks and all sorts.
There again, it’s quite compelling hogwash and we are rarely underexcited so let’s just assume that the reports in yesterday’s Sunday Sun (via the Mirror) are verified, true and accurate, and that Daniel Craig has successfully petitioned J.J. Abrams for a cameo role somewhere in the next Star Wars movie.


This film has reached the point where having your name connected to it via rumor is a status symbol.  People likely feel put out if they AREN’T rumored to have a role.
Eventually, it’ll get to the Warholian scenario, point where everyone in the world will be rumored to be in a Star Wars film for fifteen minutes.

New Who Review - "Listen" -

“…to the moment of your death” – This is a dark version of the conversation Clara had with Strax in Deep Breath – he saw all the “young men doing sport” in her subconscious, and was about to announce her age at death, where like here, she stopped him abruptly.  Two scenes where Clara doesn’t want to know about her death.  That leaves one more before we can declare it enemy action.

So apparently the Muppets are in Disney Infinity 2.0

I’m late to the game, maybe they’ve been in it before, but some of the power discs for 2.0 are Muppet-related.

Lew Zealand’s boomerang fish and the USS Swinetrek are available, as are items from Darkwing Duck, Gravity Falls (as previously mentioned) and…

Gus?

As in, the mule that could kick field goals?

That can’t be right.

Good lord…it is.

I’m starting to really not regret deciding to get this.

I do not like the fact that I’m old enough that I can point out where stuff didn’t use to be.

Danny could have played the Joker as well as just writing the music for Batman.
