To help my daughter sleep we have this stuffed animal with a small radio in the back that plays the sounds of rain falling or a river flowing for 45 minutes when you push a button. This morning at 5am somehow she rolled over in her sleep in pushed the button so I was awoken to the sound of running water blasting in our bedroom over the baby monitor. I've never believed in ghosts but for a split second this morning I honestly thought our house was haunted.
Because he isn't busy enough Guillermo del Toro has decided to take on the producer role for a new CG animated flick titled "Day Of the Dead". Jorge R. Gutierrez will direct the love story in the vein of "Romeo and Juliet" set against a Mexican “Day of the Dead” backdrop. That "Haunted Mansion" flick is still happening, right? I've been excited about that for over a year now and I'm starting to get a little pissy.
I have no idea what this means but I bet Casey is going to be as giddy as a school girl about it. Hammer Films has decided to open their script archive to the public. So I guess that means we can go there and just start reading stuff? I haven't watched a lot of their movies but from what I can gather the best part of them is the girls with all their parts hanging out so I'm not really sure how reading is going to make me happy.
Set your hunk-o-meter to stun folks because it's been confirmed that Michael Fassbender will in fact star in Ridley Scott 's next film which is titled "The Counselor". The movie is about a big time lawyer who gets mixed up with the drug selling business... and then aliens attack everyone. That last part isn't true but the thing sounds kind of boring right now so I hope they're open to suggestions.
If you kids can remember all the way back to our "Mother's Day" remake episode then you know the gang was all pretty positive on the film. I think. Honestly I can't remember back that far but let's just go with it. The point is the Darren Lynn Bousman film finally has a release date of May 8th for DVD and Blu-Ray and will also be getting a limited theater run starting May 4th. May the 4th be with you! I wonder if they thought of that when the picked the date. Man I hope so. I love that crap.

Here's a fun story about a guy who broke into a house and started trying on clothes because he said a small Asian boy invited him. The Asian boy turned out to be a bunch of flowers but he apologized so all is forgiven. Just kidding he's in jail.
A man in Quebec is in hot water after he pulled a buddy of his down the street on a couch tied to his car. The kids call it "couch surfing" I guess and apparently his friend wiped out head first into an oncoming car. I don't know what the French word is for cowabunga.
