Truly the Time of Their Lives
James Corden is starting to grow on me as a perfectly fine late night television host on The Late Late Show. He's a decent joketeller, and handles interviews well. But some of the stunts and skits he puts together and pulls off are as good as some of the things Jimmy Fallon's doing on The Tonight Show. Check out this little farewell he did with Idina Menzel at the end of last week.

May the Geek Be With You
Monday, May 4th is semi-officially designated as Star Wars Day. Why? Because "May the Fourth" Be With You. Get it? Anyway, to celebrate, a group of fans built an $800 Lego Star Destroyer, and then destroyed it, dropping it nose-first onto a floor while filming the destruction in slow motion. They even point out the demise of the Imperial representatives aboard the craft. Yup, that's Geek to the Ultimate Power.

More Than Words - Take 2
Earlier this week on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black did a shot-for-shot recreation of the music video for Extreme's "More Than Words." They do a pretty decent job with the song. Check it out.   It's even more impressive when you compare it to the original. Pretty amazing.

Um, What the HECK Just Happened?
Imagine you're minding your own business, maybe driving down the street, maybe taking a walking tour of historic Boston... And suddenly, some guy in this tighty whities and maybe a pair of shoes starts dancing in a semi-insane manner in front of you. That's what happened in some towns in Massachusetts while a band called Binary Finary recorded what appears to be a music video...? Give it a look - just be careful that no one important's looking over your shoulder.

Awkward with a Capital Awk
Danielle Perez dreamed of being a contestant on The Price is Right. That happened. She dreamed of winning and getting onto a showcase. That happened too. And then she won the showcase too - featuring a sauna and a treadmill. Great. Except Danielle has no legs and is in a wheelchair. You think maybe the folks at TPIR could have taken a moment to switch out the showcase...?

That Was Then, This is Later
David Letterman is wrapping up his 33-year career in late night television this month, so a lot of A-list guests are being crammed into the final shows. Steve Martin is one of them - a frequent guest and friend of Dave's. He visited the Late Show with David Letterman a couple of days ago, and showed a couple of videos he'd compiled as an homage to his friend - one showing selections from his past, and one showing what his life will be like post-retirement. Grab the tissues, folks!

What if Westeros Had Cellular Service?
The folks at Entertainment Weekly keep track of all forms of entertainment - movies, television, live events and more. In season, it seems like Game of Thrones is one of the magazine's favorite shows, and they do love to poke their fun. Check out this very funny episode of Game of Phones - imaging how King Tommen might manage his kingdom on a cell phone. If you haven't seen this week's episode yet, don't pay too close attention to the text messages - there's a spoiler or two in there. But by the seven gods, this is funny stuff!

Stunt Impossible?
The latest offering in the Mission: Impossible franchise (Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation) comes out at the end of this month. From the trailer, it seems like more of the same. Impossible MIssion Forces led by Tom Cruise, working on the outside of the agency that's supposed to employ them. Lots of action, and plenty of things blowing up. But check out the stunt at the end of the trailer, with Tom hanging onto the outside of a plane as it takes off. The buzz is that Tom did that stunt for real, on his own. I hope someone got a shot of his insurance agent's face while that was going on, don't you?

Idina's Kid Hates "Let It Go!"
Idina Menzel visited Ellen the other day and naturally, the conversation turned to Frozen, the animated movie where she plays the part of Elsa, the snow queen. She of course sings the movie's big song, "Let It Go!" And she revealed to Ellen that her son really doesn't like it when she sings that song. In fact, she says he hates it. But it's sort of her bread and butter, and she'll be singing it on her upcoming world tour. She demonstrated how she'll sing it in Japanese, and after a couple of false starts, she did a pretty good job with it. Check out the video.

Now This is a Birth Announcement
By now, we all know that Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed a baby girl into the world over the weekend. And we all know her name is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Signed, sealed, delivered. Godspeed and all that, what? But here, for me, is the coolest part about the royal birth. It was announced by an official town crier. Dressed in old-style finery and holding a scroll, the crier stood on the hospital steps and made the official announcement. And I don't care, but I think that's pretty darn cool! (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); How old school! Town crier Tony Appleton announces the birth of Duchess Kate's baby girl at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Posted by USA TODAY on Saturday, May 2, 2015

Leaked Pretty Girls
Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea teamed up on a new song called "Pretty Girls." It was officially released yesterday at midnight. A full two days after it was leaked on line, and had already ended up being aired. Iggy wasn't very happy about it. Check out her tweets...   I'm really really happy to see so many people loving it but i also just want to clarify its not an "early" release its a leak and if you can — IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) May 3, 2015 we would really appreciate everyone holding out until monday to share links etc if possible (i know its hard, I'm excited too!) — IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) May 3, 2015 And here's the official song. Take a listen. I'm not exactly blown away. How about you?

Jonny, We're Gonna Miss You
Jon Stewart is one of the smartest most juvenile news presenters out there. Check out his recent discussion on The Daily Show about the newest Democratic candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, a veteran senator from Vermont, as John compared and contrasted him against Hilary Clinton. It got especially juvenile when he drifted off into a recap of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton earning up to $75,000 for speeches about diarrhea. Watch this and tell me you don't laugh as hard as I did. I will MISS Jon Stewart when his time on Comedy Central is done...   The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive

All for His Family
15-year-old Isaac Waddington blew away the judges recently on Britain's Got Talent with his version of Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman." But that's only part of the story. The biggest and best part of the story is how he managed to move his parents and his younger brother to tears with his performance - while earning a standing ovation from the audience. If you don't get goosebumps watching this video, watch it again until you do.

Black Widow Misses the Mark
Scarlet Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend. She was there partly to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, the latest offering by the folks at Marvel Comics. In it, she plays Black Widow. In this little trailer developed by the folks at SNL, Black Widow gets her own movie - because Marvel knows girls. Seems like it wasn't that long ago we could have said SNL knows comedy. Unfortunately, not this time...

D*I*S*R*E*S*P*E*C*T
Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies took some major heat from the hometown fans of the Golden State Warriors during yesterday's first game in the second round of the NBA finals. During a time-out, the Warriors Junior Jam dance team took to the floor to perform for the crowd. Oblivious to that, Tony walked right out onto center court while the kids were dancing. That earned him a huge chorus of boos. Not only then, but every time he touched the ball during the rest of the game. In case you're wondering, the Warriors won the game, 101 - 86. Instant karma, anyone?

What Was Worse, the Fight or the National Anthem?
Not a lot of people were huge fans of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight on Saturday night. But even fewer were fans of the way Jamie Foxx treated the singing of the National Anthem prior to the fight. The video was all over You Tube and Facebook yesterday, but now it's been taken down - "due to a copyright claim by CBS." But Jamie took a trashing all over social media - especially on Twitter. Here's one non-fan, who posted a video of herself doing the Jamie Foxx version of the National Anthem, showing she's ready should the call ever come!     Practicing the Jamie Foxx version of the National Anthem (for when that opportunity comes knocking.) A video posted by Bayne Gibby (@baynegibby) on May 3, 2015 at 6:04pm PDT

Let's Just Flush This Idea, Why Don't We?
Okay, this is hilarious in a very juvenile way. A city councilman in Georgetown, Texas excused himself from a council meeting for a bathroom break. He forgot that he was wearing a body microphone, and also forgot to turn it off. So, while the council's business continued, this councilman's business was broadcast throughout the chamber. Too bad this guy's not on a city council in California - sounds like he could solve their drought problem single-handedly... (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); A city councilman forgot to take his mic off when he took a bathroom break... and the whole council heard everything.

Some Things You Can't Forget
Matt LeBlanc visited The Graham Norton Show (on BBC) recently, and the conversation turned to some of the songs he'd sung while on Friends. It's amazing how some things just stick with you - even after all these years. Check out this snippet from the show. Pretty funny stuff.

A Lannister Never Gives Up Spoilers
The other night on Conan, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau told some stories about offering up Game of Thrones spoilers. He plays Jamie Lannister on the show, and off-camera, he's got an interesting sense of humor. In this little tale, he talks about a random comment about a duck that had fans scrambling for clues and debating its significance. And after Conan begged a little, he gave up a little something about Dany's dragons... Watch....

Take it Off, Put it Back On
Amy Schumer strikes again... Thanks to Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central and some key recent TV appearances, she's the hottest comic out there. This new video of hers will help cement that hotness. Ladies, how many times have you heard this: "Girl, you don't need any makeup. You're beautiful the way you are."

Hiccups for the First Time
His name is Buck. He's eight weeks old. And he's experiencing his first case of the hiccups. This could be the cutest puppy video on the web right now. Poor thing has no idea what's going on, so naturally, he's got to try to scare them away...

The Last Witch Hunter Borrows from GOT?
Just caught the trailer for Vin Diesel's upcoming supernatural thriller, The Last Witch Hunter. It's due for release this October, so starting the teaser trailers six months out sounds about right. But watching it, I couldn't help but think about Game of Thrones. Several of the sets are reminiscent of the sets from GOT, plus Rose Leslie appears to be playing Vin's sidekick. That would be Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, the wilding woman with whom Jon Snow fell in love. Sure, it's based in modern-day New York, but watch it and tell me you don't see the GOT overtones.

Clever Fox, Mutant Fox?
A crew from Radio Free Europe visiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in the Ukraine recently was greeted by a fox. The fox looked thin, so the folks decided to offer it some food - sausage and bread. Watch the video as the fox picks up the ingredients to make a five-decker sandwich which he carted away. Looks like the nuclear disaster may have caused a genetic mutation, giving this fox the superpower of sandwich-making. How long before we see X-Foxes in theaters?

And the Winner is...
The Kentucky Derby - the hottest thing going in American horse racing - will run tomorrow. The field is strong, but this year, there are no obvious front-runners. So what's a betting person to do when it comes to placing a bet? Why not ask Jimmy Fallon - because he's got the Puppy Predictors on his side. Check out the video of a group of 16 puppies, each representing a Derby entrant, racing to the finish line - a trough of kibble. You may bet accordingly. Keep an eye out - there's a sleeper or two in this bunch.

Bridge Ahoy!
I don't know why this one makes me smile, but it does. A mega-yacht - this one is 236 feet long - got scrunched a little bit trying to squeeze through a bridge that might be just a little too small in Saint Maarten. We really shouldn't delight in the misfortune of others, and we've all had our share of fender benders. But this one is soooo satisfying. Don't you think?
