Not Good

I was just reading a review of "The Last Song" with Miley Cyrus and found this paragraph extremely entertaining and well written.  I think it sums up Miley's acting ability and gives you an idea of what you can expect if you are taking your kids to the film: "But the suffering she causes in "The Last Song" is just too much. Cyrus' speaking voice is deep instead of squeaky, which is usually a plus. But this isn't a throaty purr we're talking about; it's more like a three-packs-a-day growl, and it's gratingly unpleasant. Her diction is a slurry mess, and she speaks every line with an implicit sneer, as if everything, even the script of the movie she's starring in, is beneath her consideration. Her expression is perpetually bored and restless, as if the only thing she's got on her mind is getting back to her walk-in closet to assess her vast kingdom of tank tops. This is a performance with all the elegance of a bitten fingernail."  -From Stephanie Zacharek (salon.com) Do you agree or disagree?

Redneck Avengers - Dang, This Here's Funny!
The folks at Bad Lip Reading have a knack for putting words into people's mouths. They take clips from TV shows and sporting events and movies, and voice them over with utter nonsense that is just plain hysterical. Their latest takes on Team Avengers, with "Redneck Avengers: Tulsa Nights." This is some funny stuff, I swear!

Who Knew Ping Pong Could Be This Exciting?
We've all played ping pong - also known as table tennis - at some point in our lives, right? You get a four, five, maybe six shot volley going, and you feel pretty good about it. How about a 41-shot volley? That would be amazing. And that's just what happened here during the Commonwealth Games in Scotland when a couple of the sport's best players faced each other Check it out.     (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')); Watch Nigeria's Segun Toriola win an amazing 41-shot rally against Singapore's Ning Gao in the men's team table tennis semi-final at Glasgow 2014. #bbcglasgow2014http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/commonwealth-games/2014 Posted by BBC Sport on Monday, July 28, 2014

Is This Any Way to Sell a Book?
Harlequin Romances have long been known for cranking out fantasy novels about women being swept up by heroic men. Where every man has six-pack abs, and every woman has a heaving bosom and flowing locks of hair... I guess. I've only heard. But check out the way they're selling their newest title, "Never Trust a Cowboy." The theme of the video: Escape the Everyday. I guess when they've got to compete with mainstream blockbusters like "50 Shades of Grey," they've got to come up with something, right? Check out the promo - and see what you think...

Lightning Strikes - Twice!
There have been some nasty storms lately across the country. Some of the storms come with lightning, which can be nasty and beautiful at the same time. Check out these two videos of lightning strikes. The first on a church steeple in Grand Isle, Maine, the second on the side of the road in Gautier, Mississippi.   Lightning Strike in MaineWOW!

Who Do You Think You're Kidding?
Bob Schieffer retired from CBS's Face the Nation yesterday, and he went out as a true journalist. His guest was Jeb Bush, brother of President George W. Bush, son of President George H. W. Bush, who may or may not be a presidential candidate in 2016. Bob nailed Jeb with a question about campaign finance regulations, and Jeb answered saying he was "nearing the end of this journey of traveling and listening to people, garnering, trying to get a sense of whether my candidacy would be viable or not," and then said he hadn't decided if he was running or not. Bob wasn't buying it. "Now, you’re not telling me that there’s a possibility you may not run?" A gentlemanly way of saying, "Who do you think you're kidding?" Nicely done, Bob. We'll miss you on Sunday mornings.

Leave the Drone Alone
Lesson learned the hard way for Enrique Iglesias. He was performing in concert in a bull ring in Tijuana when he tried to grab a drone that was floating above him, taking pictures of the crowd. It's something he's done before. This time, it didn't go so well. Check out this Instagram post about it. "Something went wrong and he had an accident. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding." He cut two fingers pretty badly, but kept performing, ending the night looking like maybe he'd been gored by a bull. He was flown to Los Angeles immediately afterwards and entirely treated there. No word on his condition.     LAST NIGHT IN #TIJUANA ENRIQUE IGLESIAS SUFFER AN ACCIDENT INTERACTING WITH THE DRONE IN THE SHOW Last night Enrique had a show at a bullfight ring in Tijuana, Mexico for 12k+ people as part of his #SexandLove world tour. During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding. He was advised to stop the show. He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show. He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there. He was then put on a plane to LA where we was then put on a plane to see a specialist. We will continue to update as we have more info. Thank you all for your love and concern.

Are You Ready for Manhattanhenge?
Manhattanhenge happens a couple of times each year. It's the name for the days on which the setting sun lines up perfectly with Manhattan's gridded streets to create some awesome pictures. Manhattanhenge happens tonight and tomorrow night. NBC New York reports the best places to witness it are cross streets like 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets. They recommend that you go as far east as you can in Manhattan without losing sight of New Jersey. Of course, that only works if you're in New York. So here's what it looked like a few years ago. And I'm sure you can find some decent video and shots on YouTube after tonight and tomorrow, asuming the weather cooperates.

Beyonce Meets Duck Tales
Sometimes, mash-ups of songs are a little silly. This is one of them - the video of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" mashed up with the theme song from Duck Tales. You know what? It sort of works.

A Full Circle Rainbow
This is tremendously rare. Some folks at the top of an observation tower over Niagara Falls shot some tremendous footage of a full-circle rainbow. It's an amazing thing to see! (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')); When they realized what they were looking at here at Niagara Falls, their jaws dropped. It's a full circle rainbow! You’ll want to see it, too.(h/t to southlakemotors/YouTube) Posted by The Weather Channel on Thursday, May 28, 2015

Leave Those S'mores Alone!
Okay, now the government has gone too far! ChooseMyPlate.gov has published the recipe for a healthy alternative to S'mores, that melted-chocolate-and-marshmallow-on-graham-cracker concoction that's so messy and wonderful, especially in the summer. Ready? Instead of chocolate, strawberries. Instead of marshmallow, yogurt. And instead of graham crackers, a couple of pieces of cardboard. Okay, that last part's not real, but it might as well be. Nothing wrong with strawberries and yogurt - they make a nice parfait. But they pale in comparison to melty, drippy, messy chocolate and marshmallow. Mind your own beeswax, ChooseMyPlate.gov!   An easy treat kids will love- Strawberry S'mores! http://t.co/Pq2ZmADi35 #WhatsCooking pic.twitter.com/B6zUgZLMnk — ChooseMyPlate.gov (@MyPlate) May 24, 2015
