rick-and-mortys-strawberry-smiggles-cereal-now-exists-and-you-can-buy-it-and-eat-it1

I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to try the Strawberry Smiggles Cereal from Rick and Morty. Well, the cereal actually exists in real life now and you can buy it and eat it! A box of cereal will cost you $12.99, but it's got to be worth it! Right!? If you want to buy yourself a box or two or three, click here. It's an FYE exclusive. I've already ordered a box for myself! I hope it tastes good!

The mascot of Strawberry Smiggles is Tophat Jones, a parody of the cereal mascots of Lucky Charms and Trix. Here's the crazy commercial for the cereal in which we watch a couple kids tear into Tophat Jones belly and eat his guts. The cereal is just that good!

STRANGER THINGS and IT Star Finn Wolfhard Cast in a New Film Called DOG DAYS

First of all, I just have to say how much I love Finn Wolfhard's name. It's pretty badass. The star of Stranger Things and IT is riding high off the success of these projects and now he's landed another lead role in a film called Dog Days.

If you're a dog fan, then you'll probably be into it. The story follows "a group of interconnected humans brought together by their canine counterparts as each faces hardships in life with their trusty pets at their side."

According to Deadline, Wolfhard will play a character named Tyler, who is described as "an altruistic and thoughtful pizza delivery boy."

Wolfhard is such a talented young actor and I think he's got a solid successful acting career ahead of him. He was great in IT! Hopefully, he continues to pick good prohjects to be a part of. The actor will join the previously cast Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries).

Bill Clinton’s Novel THE PRESIDENT IS MISSING is Getting a Series Adaptation at Showtime

Showtime has acquired the rights to Bill Clinton and James Patterson's upcoming novel The President is Missing and they will adapt it into a TV series. This actually sounds like it could be a pretty awesome series. 

The story will center around "a sitting U.S. president’s disappearance, with the level of detail that only someone who has held the office can know." The fact that Clinton is involved with this whole thing is cool, especially with his first-hand knowledge of being a President implemented into the story. 

Showtime Network president and CEO David Nevins had this to say in a statement:

“Bringing The President Is Missing to Showtime is a coup of the highest order. The pairing of President Clinton with fiction’s most gripping storyteller promises a kinetic experience, one that the book world has salivated over for months and that now will dovetail perfectly into a politically relevant, character-based action series for our network.”

Clinton added: 

“I’m really enjoying writing this book and working with Jim. And I can’t wait to see Showtime bring the characters to life.” 

Patterson then went on to say:

“The White House is such an exciting world to explore and is made even more so with the unique insights of a former President. Rich storytelling opportunities for this series abound.”

The book is set to be published in June of 2018. I'm interested in seeing what kind of creative talent they bring on to develop the series and see how it turns out.

Reggie Fils-Aime Says Nintendo “Dramatically Over-Delivered” On Switch Consoles At Launch

reggie-fils-aime-says-nintendo-dramatically-over-delivered-on-switch-consoles-at-launch-social.jpg

When it comes to the launch of the Nintendo Switch and the number of consoles that were available at launch, Reggie Fils-Aime believes Nintendo "Dramatically Over-Delievered" to consumers. Fils-Aime says that professional analysts in the field believed the console would sell under 2 million units in its first year, so the company responded appropriately and made 2.8 million consoles available at launch. 

As we all know how the story goes, those were gone by the end of the first month. 

So now Nintendo, whose last console sold 13.5 million units over its lifetime (the Nintendo Switch will have sold over half that number by the end of the first year according to analysts now), is being berated by consumers for underselling the console to increase demand. While I know its frustrating not to have the console you want right now, hopefully, these words from Reggie will offer people a bit of a reality check.

There was a VERY small community both professionally and mainstream who believed the Nintendo Switch would be a success even a couple months before launch, so frankly, it's no surprise that Nintendo produced their console appropriately. Producing 8 million consoles for launch on the off-chance people will be interested when the current leading experts in the field were explicitly saying it would not is smart business, bottom line. 

That still doesn't change the fact that Switch consoles are hard to come by, I know, but maybe Reggie's triggering remarks will wake up the population of the gaming community as to how monumental this turnaround for the company has been, and that while the shortage is frustrating, it's also 100% justified considering the consumer climate prior to launch.

Listen To Michael Jackson Describe His Voice As “Godly” In 1994

listen-to-michael-jackson-talk-about-his-music-in-1994-social.jpg

You want to hear what a tortured soul sounds like, you'll listen to this 1994 interview with Michael Jackson. He's not at all modest either, nor should he be as it's hard to dispute the guy put 100% into literally every performance he did. Jackson describes his voice as "godly" in this interview below, do you agree? It's really hard, for me at least, to remember the Michael in this interview compared to the one he was later in life, so I feel a little biased.

For those of you who are aspiring filmmakers, I've got some cool news for you today! Legendary director Martin Scorsese is launching an online course in the art of filmmaking! 

In the course, Scorsese will deconstruct his films and provide insights into how he approaches filmmaking, including lessons on storytelling, editing and working with actors. The MasterClass course will include a downloadable workbook with lesson recaps and supplemental material. In addition, students enrolled in the class will be able to upload video questions to Scorsese, who will provide select feedback.

This is awesome and it's totally affordable! The class will debut in early 2018 through an online-education startup company called MasterClass and the class will only cost $90 for unlimited access to more than 20 video lessons. Scorsese had this to say in a statement:

“I was excited by this project because it gave me a chance to pass down my own inspirations and experiences and practices and evolutions. Not as a blueprint for how to make movies but as a guidepost, an offering to young people attempting to find their own way.”

Here’s What Hal 9000 Would Sound Like If He Was Voiced By Bender From FUTURAMA

heres-what-hal-9000-would-sound-like-if-he-was-voiced-by-bender-from-futurama-social.jpg

Bender is one of the best parts of Futurama, and if he were in 2001: A Space Odyssey, he'd be the best part of that film as well! Listen to voice actor John DiMaggio do a scene as HAL 9000 below and see if you can keep yourself from laughing, or if like Rob Paulsen, you lose it like the rest of us. 

Am I the only one who wants to see John DiMaggio redub the entire film now?
