do you ever surprise yourself?

messy_desk_contest_winner

I have been combing my condo for the past 2 days looking for a software program. I have emptied every drawer, went through every CD I own, and even looked under my bed (scary.) I was having no luck and ready to go to the Mac Store to buy a c0mpletly new program. Then I decided to look in one more place, the file cabinet where I have a specific folder labeled "Computer Discs." What a bright idea! Why didn't I check there first? Well, to be honest I don't always think of myself as the most organized person which is the reason it never crossed my mind that maybe it was in the folder labeled "Computer Discs." There it was, sitting right where it belonged. I realized I am more organized than I think and it actually makes it harder for me to find things. So much for organization.

"Unless You Know How to Make Jokes, Don't Do It!"
Giuliana Rancic's comments about Zendaya's dreadlocks - smelling like patchouli oil and weed - during the Fashion Police episode focusing on the Oscars is still stirring controversy. Yesterday on The View, Whoopi Goldberg took the others on the show to school about the difference between the late Joan Rivers, who made Fashion Police the iconic show it was, and Giuliana Rancic, who is not Joan Rivers. Whoopi didn't defend Giuliani - not even close. But she doesn't think she was being racist either. "She was just ignorant," says Whoopi. Check out the clip....

Giuliani Gets Stewartized
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has been taking a lot of heat over comments he made about President Obama not loving America. The reaction has come from all quarters - even some conservative quarters that Giuliani probably considered safe havens until now. No surprise that Jon Stewart - never once considered a conservative safe haven - would have some choice words for the former mayor. To say that Jon eviscerated him is a very fair comment indeed. Nice to see that even as Jon's retirement from The Daily Show draws near, he's still got a lot of bite left.   The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive

Get Off Your Duff For The DUFF
Seems like all the movie talk these days has centered on 50 Shades of Grey. A little bit of controversy, a best-selling book series, and boom! You've got a blockbuster before it was even released. Other movies tend to get put in the shadows by films like that. Here's one that looks like it could stand a little light. I stumbled on this while I was looking for something else - isn't that always the way with Internet surfing? The movie is called The DUFF - an acronym for Designated Ugly Fat Friend. It's from a Young Adult novel, written by a 17-year-old while she was a senior in high school, about being a senior in high school. The trailer sure catches your attention - enough to make me want to go to see it. It's got elements of Mean Girls to it, but it doesn't feel quite as mean. It opened on February 20, and you don't need to bring any paraphernalia to watch it either.

Like a Tumbler
Madonna was closing out the show for the Brit Awards, roughly the equivalent of the Grammys in the UK, with a rendition of "Living for Love" on Wednesday. And during the song, something happened with her cape, and she went for a tumble off the stage and down some stairs. The folks at Hollywood Life have the story...   Not to worry - she's fine. And she blamed the whole thing on her Armani cape being tied too tightly.     Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I'm fine! ❤️#livingforlove A photo posted by Madonna (@madonna) on Feb 25, 2015 at 2:50pm PST

A Snow-Covered Cottage Industry
When Mother Nature dumps 100 inches and counting of frozen white precipitation on you, you spend an awful lot of time cursing as you move that stuff around. Not Kyle Waring. This entrepreneur, who lives on the Massachusetts coastline north of Boston, had a better idea. Package the white stuff, and sell it to people in warmer climates who don't get their fair share of snow. And that's how ShipSnowYo.com was born. It started with half-liter bottles for $19.99, but a lot of it melted by the time it got where it was going. That's when he started packing six pounds of snow and shipping it for $89. He told Boston.com that even though some will melt along the way, there's still enough frozen stuff to make 10 to 15 snowballs. You can also get ten-pounds - a snowball party pack, I guess - for $119. Ingenious. Time to start thinking about ways to sell my grass clippings this summer. Stay tuned! Is 10lbs of snow enough? pic.twitter.com/GsjymU7eNO — ShipSnowYo.com! ❄️ (@shipsnowyo) February 25, 2015

Can This Be Unheard?
Lady Gaga did quite nicely with her reboot of Julie Andrews' songs from The Sound of Music during Sunday's Oscars celebration. Now a pair of metal musicians have cut into another Julie Andrews classic - this time "Supercalifragilisticexpialidoscious" from Mary Poppins. I'm not 100% sure this was necessary. And I'm pretty sure you won't be able to unhear it. You are warned!

This Ain't Like Any Aquaman You've Seen Before
Zack Snyder, the director of Dawn of Justice, the new film that pits Batman against Superman, has decided to include a lot of other superheroes in the film. One of them is Aquaman, who used to be seen as a blond-headed Speedo leotard-wearing guy who could live underwater and on land. Honestly, I never quite understood the fascination. Except for his ability to breathe underwater, what was the guy's purpose. With the new Aquaman, no worries. He's simply kick-butt, and that's probably his purpose. The role is played by Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. And this picture that Zack Snyder tweeted certainly conjures up the Khal Drogo we all remember so fondly... There is only one true King. #unitetheseven pic.twitter.com/RDFG8jbuI6 — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) February 20, 2015

Bad Girl, Bad Girl, Whatcha Gonna Do?
When your world freezes, you've got to do what you've got to do. A couple of weeks ago, a police department issued a warrant for the arrest of Punxsatawney Phil, the groundhog who promised six more weeks of winter - but failed to tell how severe those six weeks would be. This week, in Hanahan, South Carolina, the local cops slapped cuffs on Elsa, the snow queen for Disney's Frozen, after she tried to put the freeze on the water fountain outside the PD HQ. South Carolina's been getting some uncharacteristically cold weather, including black ice, and the law hoped that putting Elsa out of commission, even for a bit, would make things better. I'm not sure it helped. You watch the news account, and judge for yourself. And see just how quickly Elsa ratted out her friend, Jack Frost...  WCIV-TV | ABC News 4 - Charleston News, Sports, Weather

Wheel of Musical Impressions with Christina Aguilera
Wheel of Musical Impressions is becoming a semi-regular feature on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. This week, Christina Aguilera visited, and played the game with Jimmy. The concept is simple. Hit a button, and it presents another singer and a silly song for the player to sing in that singer's voice. Jimmy did nicely with David Bowie and Michael McDonald. But Christina hit it out of the park with her impressions of Cher, Britney Spears and Shakira. Check it out...

Thundersnow, Songified
An enterprising musician has taken the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore's delight with the meteorological phenomenon called thundersnow and set it to music. You probably remember seeing the raw video of Jim going out of his skull outside Boston during their most recent big snowstorm. As he stood outside - properly attired, of course - thunder roared overhead. A rare occasion in winter, but this was the perfect storm. Well, for Jim, anyway. The song isn't anything you can dance to, but it sure is fun to watch.

Oh, and My Spell Check is Broken
Who would have guessed that one of the most controversial things at the Oscar celebration on Sunday would be a comment by the folks at E!'s Fashion Police. It started when co-host Giuliana Rancic took a shot at singer Zendaya's dreadlocks: "“I feel like she smells like pachouli oil.” And as the camera cut away to a picture of Zendaya, someone else said, "Or weed." Rumors flew that is was Kelly Osbourne who made that comment, and now she's all over Twitter, not only saying she didn't do it, but saying she could well leave the show over it. Oh, and she clearly doesn't let Spell Check or autocorrect rule her world. Let's play a new game and count the typos in these next four tweets, shall we? I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same! — Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 24, 2015 you guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend right? — Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 24, 2015 Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak! — Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 24, 2015 I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW! — Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 24, 2015 Did you say six? Then you'd be right - and we're not counting punctuation!

"A Soulless Twitter Troll"
ESPN suspended host Keith Olbermann after he made some thoughtless comments about some students at Penn State who raised $13 million in the school's annual dance marathon to fight pediatric cancer. A Penn State alumna tweeted the news to Olbermann, and he responded with "Pitiful." And that started a Twitter war that resulted in Olbermann's ouster - but only for the rest of the week. Check out a few of the salvos... @KeithOlbermann so you have no opinion on Penn State raising over $13 million for pediatric cancer research? — Colin Benner (@ColinBenner) February 24, 2015 .@ColinBenner Good for you. Doesn't change the school's reputation. Check back next century. — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) February 24, 2015 @KeithOlbermann @ColinBenner Penn State remains great while you peaked 20 years ago. — Josh Barnes (@jb82mets) February 24, 2015 @KeithOlbermann @ColinBenner You were once near the top of the sports mountain, your career has bottomed out as a soulless twitter troll. — Josh Barnes (@jb82mets) February 24, 2015 For the record, he did apologize. The timing seems to roughly coincide with the announcement of his suspension... I apologize for the PSU tweets. I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job. — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) February 24, 2015

A Glory-ous Oscar Moment
One of the best and most poignant moments of Sunday's Oscar awards show was John Legend and Common performing "Glory" from the soundtrack of Selma. A very moving performance on so many levels that brought many in the audience - both in the theater and around the world - to tears. No surprise that it picked up the Academy Award for original song.

"Unfortunately Unable to Feature"
The internet was buzzing all day yesterday about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences' failure to include Joan Rivers in the "In Memoriam" segment on Sunday's Oscar show. Many people thought the snub was simply a mistake. I mean, maybe the Academy didn't have access to Joan's IMDb page. But forgetting her movie career, Joan made the pre-Oscar red carpet arrivals an EVENT. Without her sideline snarkiness, the Oscars would open and close inside the theater. Here's the worst part. It wasn't a mistaken snub. It was an on-purpose snub. According to BuzzFeed.com, an official for the Academy stated, “Joan Rivers is among the many worthy artists and filmmakers we were unfortunately unable to feature in the ‘In Memoriam’ segment of this year’s Oscar show. She is, however, included in our ‘In Memoriam’ gallery on Oscar.com.” Joan's picture is there - number 68 of 129, alphabetically sandwiched between director Alain Resnais and film editor Tom Rolf, both of whom were among the 50 or so folks who were fortunately able to feature in the memorial segment presented at the show...

"Acting is a Noble Profession"
Neil Patrick Harris did a bit of a spoof on a sequence from Birdman during the Oscars show on Sunday night. It was one of the funnier moments in the show, but you really can't help but wonder if it was timed to put an idea into some advertising executive's head. Wouldn't NPH be just the guy to jazz up a Hanes commercial? Or to take over for The Biebs as the next Calvin Klein guy?

House of Cards Blown Away by Sesame Street
The folks at Sesame Street are already puppet masters. They're quickly becoming parody masters as well. Check out their latest parody, this time of Netflix's House of Cards. They've got all the elements - the smarmy southern Frank Underwolf, his designs on the White Brick House, his quirky talking to the camera - everything. And a fun punchline to the bit as well. This video is brought to you by the letters O and K...

Led Xylophone
I scoffed when I read the teaser. "This xylophone cover of Led Zeppelin is the only one you need," according to The Daily Dot. Xylophones and Zeppelin? Can't be. I scoff no more. The Louisville Leopard Percussionists out of Louisville, Kentucky absolutely nail this Zeppelin medley. How good is it? Good enough for Jimmy Page, Zeppelin's founder and lead guitarist, shared it on his Facebook page, saying it was "too good not to share."

Revenge - A Dish Best Served Cold
It's been a year since John Travolta's famously mispronunciation of Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars. On Sunday night, Idina finally got her revenge when she and John got to present an award at the 2015 Oscars celebration. Idina introduceed John as "Glom Gazingo," a name as whacky as "Adele Kazeem." Next year, Idina's going to have to get even for John's creepy manhandling of her face...

The Sound of Gaga
Neil Patrick Harris hit the nail on the head when he said that this segment of the Oscars would be one of the show's most chat-worthy moments. Lady Gaga put a lot of haters on their butts with a phenomenal rendition of a medley of songs from the classic The Sound of Music. Even Julie Andrews, who starred as Maria in the 1965 film, called the moment "wonderful." And it was.     (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/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by ABC Television Network.

Mama Says Uh-Uh
Dakota Johnson - star of 50 Shades of Grey - attended the Oscars last night with her mom, Melanie Griffith, as her date. They stopped to chat on the red carpet before the show, and it turned into a discussion about mom seeing her daughter in 50 Shades. Dakota says mom should see it. Mom's not having it. She thinks it would be weird. I think mom's right. How about you?

Okay, So It's Not the Tonys
There was a lot of buzz about Neil Patrick Harris hosting this year's Academy Awards show. After all, he's done a kick-butt job with the Tonys over and over again. So why not, right? Last night's show started with a lot of promise - NPH doing a musical number (his forte) mixing in Anna Kendrick and Jack Black. Pretty good opening. The rest - not so much. I'm thinking maybe the West Coast writers aren't as hip as the ones on the East Coast? Yeah, that's got to be it.

Biebs in a Box
Ellen DeGeneres does it again! On Friday's Ellen, she had Justin Bieber on - again. It's becoming a weekly ritual. She's really signed on with helping to rehab the Biebs' image. So they're talking about his upcoming roast on Comedy Central, and while they're talking... ... well, don't let me spoil it for you. Check it out for yourself...

Tick Tock, You've Got the Clock
This is one of the funniest things I've seen in sports in a long time. The University of Massachusetts' basketball team visited Virginia Commonwealth University on Saturday. VCU's fans are notorious for fake shot clock counts - an attempt to distract the visiting team and maybe force an earlier-than-needed shot. Other hometown fans do the same thing, but the VCU fans are pretty good at it. During this weekend's game, it looks like the shot-clockers were able to fool even the game's officials, who called a shot-clock violation when one didn't really happen. Check it out...

Eventually, They Played Hockey
"A flat-out line brawl" is what they're calling it. On Saturday night, an Amercan Hockey League game was played between the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and the Hershey Bears in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Late in the second period, a fight broke out. Nothing unusual. It happens all the time in hockey. But one fight turned into two, two into four, and pretty soon just about everyone was in on it. Even the goalies fought each other, which is pretty funny to watch. When everything was sorted out, there were about 200 penalty minutes awarded. Now that's a hockey game! The beginning of this video is raw - the play-by-play starts at about the 2:35 mark.

"It's Your Show!"
W.C. Fields was once quoted as saying one should never work with children or animals. The problem, he believed, was that children and animals would always upstage the adult performer, and what adult performer wants that, right? Recently on Conan, host Conan O'Brien probably wanted to add puppets to that list. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was visiting to promote its new show on Adult Swim, and Conan couldn't get a word in. Triumph's show co-star Jack McBrayer just sat there and smiled. Check it out. See if you agree with Conan's assessment of Triumph's puppeteer.
