Tom Brady To Star In A Comedy

Tom Brady is set to act in and produce “80 for Brady,” a road trip comedy for Paramount and Endeavor Content, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.  Paramount Pictures acquired the worldwide rights to “80 for Brady” from Endeavor Content, who will produce the film.  The film also stars Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field.  “80 for Brady” is co-written and directed by Kyle Marvin, who is also executive producing with partner Michael Covino under their Watch This Ready banner and Jeff Stott. Marvin and Covino wrote the latest script based off a draft by Emily Halpern & Sarah Haskins.  It’s inspired by the true story of 4 best-friends and New England Patriots fans who take a life changing trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their hero Tom Brady play, and the chaos that ensues as they navigate the wilds of the biggest sporting event in the country.  Brady will produce via his 199 Productions banner, alongside Donna Gigliotti and Endeavor Content. Endeavor Content developed the film with Brady and Gigliotti. Endeavor Content also brokered the deal.
*******”We’ve been waiting for a movie with Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field!!” Said no one.
****With that many old white ladies, we know Snoop Dogg will be watching!!
*******It’s kind of like “The Hangover,” except without the laughs!!!
*****They tried to get Aaron Rodgers to play Tom Brady, but he wouldn’t take it!!!

Daniel Radcliffe Seen As Weird Al

Daniel Radcliffe dons a Hawaiian shirt in the first image of the actor as musician “Weird Al” Yankovic in Roku’s Weird: The Weird Al Yankovic Story.  Radcliffe is also rocking curly hair, glasses and is playing a piano accordion in the image.  “It never fails — we’re trying to shoot a movie here, and this cosplayer weirdo tries to crash our set. Ugh! I mean, I love my fans, but… boundaries, people! Don’t worry, we had security throw him out,” Yankovic said on Instagram alongside the photo of Radcliffe.  The biopic, which will premiere on The Roku Channel, will explore the life and career of Yankovic, who is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time.  Yankovic produces and co-wrote the script with Eric Appel, who also serves as director and executive producer.  See the pic HERE.
********Of course, it HAD to be weird!! It’s Weird Al!!!

Elton John Makes Emergency Landing

Elton John is ok after experiencing a terrifying arrival into Ireland on Tuesday after his private jet suffered a hydraulic failure.  He was making his way from the United Kingdom to New York, where he was scheduled to perform at the Madison Square Garden on Tuesday and again on Wednesday, when the aircraft he was in suffered hydraulic failure at 10,000 feet.  The plane diverted to the coast of Southern Ireland, and witnesses say the pilot twice aborted landing while winds reached 80 mph. The Farnborough Airport cleared a runway for the aircraft, and fire crews and ambulances were on hand to assist on the ground.  A rep for the famed singer told Fox News Digital he’s “all good and performed last night at Madison Square Garden.”  A Fox News Digital employee at the concert said John was in top form, powering through hits including “Your Song,” but kept quiet about his flight drama.
********He paid over $90 million for this jet!! (true) You could at least expect it to WORK!!
********Elton always brings a friend named “Daniel” when he’s “flying tonight on a plane!”
*******His plane was just a “Candle in the Wind!!”

Mad Max Blow Up

Tom Hardy sent Charlize Theron into a rage of fury during their filming of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” according to a new oral history book centered on the movie’s production.  In “Blood, Sweat & Chrome,” a book that sheds light on the film that grossed nearly $375 million in worldwide box office, Theron explains the brother-sister dynamic she shared with Hardy and ultimately says the rift between the two A-list performers shouldn’t have spilled into production in the myriad of ways they allowed it to.  “It was like two parents in the front of the car. We were either fighting or we were icing each other — I don’t know which one is worse — and they had to deal with it in the back. It was horrible! We should not have done that; we should have been better. I can own up to that,” she explains in an excerpt, according to Vanity Fair.  However, on-set crew members further revealed the jaw-dropping incident that allegedly sent Theron over the edge after Hardy arrived to film some three hours late while she had sat waiting for him in the War Rig while in full costume — makeup and all.  “I remember vividly the day,” camera operator Mark Goellnicht explained of the Oscar-winning film that took home six awards out of its 10 nominations. “The call on set was eight o’clock. Charlize got there right at eight o’clock, sat in the War Rig, knowing that Tom’s never going to be there at eight even though they made a special request for him to be there on time.”  “She jumps out of the War Rig, and she starts swearing her head off at him, saying, ‘Fine the f–king c–t a $100,00 for every minute that he’s held up this crew,’ and ‘How disrespectful you are!'” Goellnicht claimed.   “She was right,” he continued. “Full rant. She screams it out. It’s so loud, it’s so windy — he might’ve heard some of it, but he charged up to her and went, ‘What did you say to me?’ [Hardy] was quite aggressive. She really felt threatened, and that was the turning point.”  For fear the tense exchange might’ve escalated into bad acting, Theron reportedly ushered producer Denise Di Novi to shadow Theron on set to ensure things went smoothly from that moment on.
*********Charlize is one those women who are obviously evil, but no one seems to notice!!

Harrison Ford Comes To The Rescue

Harrison Ford was a real-life hero on the set of the latest installment of “Indiana Jones,” according to a new report. He rushed to the aid of a crew member, who was believed to have had a heart attack, the Sun reported earlier this week.  “Harrison was standing just yards away and yelled for a medic,” a source told the outlet.  “There was a huge amount of panic. The on-site first aider did CPR while they waited for an air ambulance and paramedics to arrive.”  The upcoming fifth film in the “Indiana Jones” franchise appears to be plagued by tragedy. A separate incident that bears an eerie similarity to this recent medical emergency took place in November while the cast and crew were on location in Morocco.  Camera department pro Nic Cupac was found dead in his hotel room in the city of Fes.  His death was thought to have been of “natural causes,” though the Sun, which broke the initial report, now claims it was also a suspected heart attack.
****The crew on this movie must be as old as Harrison!!
******All of these problems may be God’s way of saying, “Stop making these movies!!!”

Meghan’s Oprah Dress On Top

Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview is making news once again.  The iconic black Giorgio Armani dress the Duchess of Sussex wore for her March 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey has been announced as the Fashion Museum Bath’s Dress of the Year.  The $4,700 triple silk georgette dress with a lotus flower motif will go on display at the English museum as part of its headline exhibition, “A History of Fashion in 100 Objects.”  While it’s not the actual dress Meghan wore, the designer donated a version of the look for the display, per the museum.  Fashion Museum Bath shared the news on Instagram Tuesday, adding that royals often send a message with their clothing, and the lotus flower has a particularly meaningful one.  The duchess, who struggled with her mental health during her time as a royal, is said to have chosen the flower-printed dress for its “symbolic association with rebirth, self-regeneration and spiritual enlightenment, and its ability to flourish despite seemingly challenging conditions.”  Each year, the museum asks leaders in the fashion world to choose a Dress of the Year that “encapsulates the prevailing mood of fashion, represents the past year, and captures the imagination,” per the museum’s press release.
*********The Queen also has a dress from Oprah’s interview!! It’s a little number with a bunch  of knife holes in the back!!
******Ever notice that fashion designers try to make themselves important by saying things you can’t understand??

Escaped Alligator Gets Trapped

Keepers at an Australian zoo faced a dangerous situation when an alligator used floodwaters to escape from its enclosure and ended up trapped between fences.  The Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, said floodwaters allowed a male American alligator to cross an internal boundary fence, but the large reptile then found it was trapped between the boundary and a second fence.  Jake Meney, the zoo’s head reptile keeper, said workers had to lift the alligator back into the enclosure by hand.  Meney told the rains complicated the rescue operation by making both the ground and the alligator “incredibly slippery.”  “You never really know the temperament of an alligator, so although this guy was pretty happy to be relocated, we have to be prepared for him to change his mind at any stage,” he said. “Although there was no danger of him breaching the main boundary fence near visitors, there was still no way he would have been able to get back into the lagoon on his own.”  The zoo posted a video to YouTube showing zookeepers returning the alligator to its home.  See the video HERE.
********Bringing an alligator to Australia is like bringing sand to the beach!!
******What do you call an animal with four legs and one arm?? A happy alligator!!

Vegas Celebrates 5 Millionth Wedding License

The month of February has always been popular for couples getting married, but this year was special for lovers getting married on two unique dates: 2/2/22 and 2/22/22.  Las Vegas — the Wedding Capital of the World — celebrated the 5 millionth marriage license issued in Clark County when a California couple tied the knot on Sunday.  Clark County prepared for an influx of couples on Tuesday, after seeing more couples share nuptials earlier this month.  The Marriage License Bureau typically sees about 600 marriages on Valentine’s Day.  Last year, the county issued more than 77,000 marriage licenses, and this year, it expects to hand out more than 80,000 certificates. The process to obtain certificates takes about 10 minutes.  The lucky 5 millionth license was issued to Mayra Ramizerz and Luis Pantoja after a yearlong campaign dubbed “Five Million Love Stories.” They received gifts including a return trip to Las Vegas and a diamond ring.  Los Angeles couple Melissa and Carlos De Leon told Las Vegas Review-Journal that they tied the knot on Tuesday in Las Vegas after being together for 22 years.  See the video HERE.
*******A lot of those licenses have expired!!
****We went to Vegas and got a learner’s permit!!

Jurassic Fossil Found

Researchers in Scotland said a winged reptile fossil found on one of the country’s islands is a previously unknown type of pterosaur and the largest ever discovered from the Jurassic period.  The University of Edinburgh team, which published its paper on the discovery Tuesday in the journal Current Biology, said the pterosaur that lived about 170 million years ago was remarkably well-preserved when it was discovered in 2017 on the Isle of Skye, off Scotland’s west coast.  “Pterosaurs preserved in such quality are exceedingly rare and are usually reserved to select rock formations in Brazil and China. And yet, an enormous superbly preserved pterosaur emerged from a tidal platform in Scotland,” Natalia Jagielska, a doctoral student and the lead author of a paper, said in a University of Edinburgh news release.  Jagielska said the hollow bones of pterosaurs made their remains fragile and unlikely candidates to become long-lasting fossils, but the Isle of Skye discovery “remains in almost pristine condition, articulated and almost complete.” “Its sharp fish-snatching teeth still retaining a shiny enamel cover as if he were alive mere weeks ago,” she said.
*********Wait.. maybe he WAS a live a few weeks ago!!
****He could be a cousin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster!!!

Man Shoves Crossbow Down His Pants

A man was arrested days after being caught on camera stealing a crossbow and stuffing it down his sweatpants inside a home improvement store in Florida.  On Sunday, Feb. 6, after realizing two crossbows had been stolen from the True Value Store, located in Mims, employees checked the store’s surveillance video and that’s when they saw the crossbow stealing thief in action.  According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, in the video, the thief, later identified as Darren Durrant, could be “observed walking into the store, stealing a pair of cutting tools off the shelf, and then cutting the zip ties off of a Ravin Rio Crossbow.” Durrant was then seen “walking around the corner from where the crossbows were shelved and then stuffing the crossbow down the front of his pants so he could walk out the store undetected.”  Durrant, per the sheriff’s office, was arrested a few days later in the parking lot of a nearby Walgreens after he tried to run away from a deputy who noticed him.  See the video HERE.
*********Wait. They sell CROSSBOWS at True Value??

6 Everyday Habits That Will Help You Poop On A Regular Schedule

Huffington Post


  1. Eat more fiber

Think of foods containing insoluble fiber as “rough,” meaning they can help food move through your digestive system, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Examples include whole wheat bread, brown rice, legumes, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes.

“Eating fiber is probably the number one priority to help you get regular,” Curtin said. “It is recommended to take 20-35 grams daily of fiber if you are constipated and this helps to even out the bowel movements.”

Good sources of fiber for getting on a regular schedule also include prunes and kiwi fruit. “These are actually the best foods for regular bowel habit, with kiwi fruits daily having better affect with lower side effects (like bloating) than prunes or an undifferentiated high-fiber diet,” Curtin said.

He added that many people will be able to manage their constipation by just adding fiber alone — it’s simply that effective.

On the other hand, eating dairy, spicy foods and greasy foods can make stools loose. “Bananas, rice, toast, and apples can all make your poop firm and easier to hold in,” Reardon noted.


  1. Stay hydrated

By now you likely know you should drink at least eight glasses of water a day, but did you know water will help you with a bowel movement as well?

“Keep your body hydrated as the colon’s main job is to resorb water,” Curtin said.

Liana Werner-Gray, a certified nutritionist in New York, said you can increase your regular water consumption by consuming healthy juices and tea on top of your H2O. “Overall, leading a healthy lifestyle that is full of hearty and wholesome natural ingredients will regulate bowel movements,” she explained.

A study published in Hepatogastroenterology found that a combination of increased fiber and increased fluid helped ease constipation symptoms. It works by making your stools softer and easier to pass.


  1. Exercise regularly

Get things moving in your colon by moving your body. A study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found moderate physical activity and increased fiber intake substantially reduced constipation in women.

“Take standing or walking breaks if you are sitting for prolonged periods during the day, and try to get regular exercise four to five days a week — even if it’s just a walk outside,” Reardon said.

Reardon also recommended trying specific exercises focused on poop, like certain yoga moves. “Exercises that help with pelvic floor muscle relaxation can help you have better poops,” Reardon said. “Some recommended exercises are child’s pose, happy baby pose, or a deep squat, which all put your pelvic floor and hips in a more relaxed position and ultimately helps you relax better during bowel movements.”


  1. Look into probiotics

One way to make sure you’re on the right track to creating a regular schedule is to check your poop consistency. Reardon says it should be similar to that of soft-serve ice cream. If it’s not, adding probiotics may help. You can achieve this through diet or a supplement. (Just be sure to chat with your doctor before starting any supplements.)

“Your poop can get too hard due to changes to your schedule, diet, activity levels, hormones during pregnancy, decreased water intake or even stress,” she explained. “Try adding prunes, magnesium citrate … and probiotics to help keep stool soft.”

Werner-Gray also recommended taking probiotics, which are live microorganisms that promote gut health and overall wellness.


  1. Go to the bathroom after eating

In your ideal situation, when would be the best time of day for you to have a bowel movement? Maybe it’s in the morning before work or at the end of the day when you make it home. No matter what time, you can train your body to go by going to the bathroom after eating.

“Give yourself ample time after meals (usually around 30 minutes) to have access to a bathroom,” Reardon said. “Eating food stimulates the reflex to push food toward your colon, which will stimulate the urge to poop, so schedule time after meals to avoid delaying the urge to poop.”

She also suggested a routine to stimulate bowel movements, like eating meals at a similar time of day and drinking warm water, tea or coffee in the morning.


  1. Get a stool and practice proper breathing

“Yes, there is an optimal way to poop,” Reardon said. She recommended using a squatty potty or any stool under your feet, which will push your hips closer to a squatting position.

“This relaxes your pelvic floor muscles and anal sphincter to help you empty better,” she explained. “Think of this like you are unkinking a hose.”

While pooping, you should also avoid straining or holding your breath. “Many folks do this, but it just creates unnecessary tension down there,” Reardon said. “You instead want to exhale and blow out like you’re blowing out a candle when you bear down to poop.”

Think of pooping on a regular schedule as just another part of your overall wellness routine. After implementing a few new habits, you won’t even have to think about it! And if these tips don’t work, be sure to check in with your doctor to make sure your gastrointestinal issues aren’t a sign of a more serious condition.
