If you're excited about "Mockingbird Lane" then prepare to get a full on robot chubby when you hear the news that the show's producer Bryan Fuller has dropped word that some of your favorite Universal monsters will also be popping up in the show.

I refuse to watch any web series because let's be honest if it was really that good it would be on TV because that's where good things go. But someone must have been watching "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" because the series creator Kevin Tancharoen has let the world know he's working on a second season that will focus on the tournament itself rather than character story.

Why would someone from Hollywood pay us to watch a movie from Australia you might be asking. Shut up don't question me. The disc will include the unrated version of the film along with cast and crew interviews. You will not be able to understand a word of it.

We've all dreamed of doing it but one man in Florida saw the opportunity and he reached for it. It being $314 dollars in a stripper's garter. Of course he then got arrested and I'm just guessing had the taste knocked out of his mouth by a bouncer. But still, dare to dream folks.
Those who can't, teach. And those who teach, beat the holy living hell out of your kids if they talk back too much. Like this teacher in Maryland who hit, punched, scratched and yes choked her little first graders. That's what happens with your kids sass too much.
