An Amazing Story

Wyatt is a 12-year-old autistic boy who loves the Blue Man Group.

His right arm was amputated shortly after he was born.

His wish was to have a robotic Blue Man Group arm.

The folks at Limbitless Solutions made that happen with a low-cost arm produced on a 3D printer, and had the folks at Blue Man Group present the arm to Wyatt.

Watch this amazing video from a couple of weeks ago, and tell me you don't tear up...

When you take Blue Man Group, Limbitless Solutions and an amazing boy named Wyatt - magic happens. How do you Dare to Live in Full Color?

To Infinity & Beyond... Just Not on an Airplane

This is a very odd story.

TSA agents at the Orlando, Florida airport confiscated a Buzz Lightyear toy because it looked like a weapon.

It's a plastic grabber - you squeeze the handle, a gripper at the end of the toy closes. In the middle is a squared-off lime green space ray gun.

A young boy from Pennsylvania had purchased it at Disneyworld.

And because the family didn't have anything other than carry-on luggage, they had to leave it behind.

I'm all for tight security when it comes to air travel, but is this over the top? What do you think?

The Lost Star Wars Audition Tapes

You can bet that when it was announced that JJ Abrams would be directing the upcoming Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens, he was buried in audition requests and tapes.

On Saturday Night Live this weekend, he shared some of those tapes with the world.

You never know who's going to show up when a part in a potential blockbuster is on the line, right?

Very funny clips - with some very interesting cameos too.

Doesn't A Capella Mean No Music?

An interesting moment at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.

Harrison Ford - you might remember him as Han Solo from Star Wars? - introduced a musical segment paying homage to the music of Star Wars.

Pentatonix, the truly amazing a capella group, backed by a symphony orchestra.

An a capella group, with an orchestra...

Am I the only one who finds that contradictory?

Rather than compliment each other, it seems they worked against each other...

What do you think?

Really? Is This Really a Record?

Dontari Poe is a nose tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs.

In his team's face off with the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, he lined up behind the offensive line and went airborne to score a 1-yard rushing touchdown.

Consider that this guy is a defensive tackle. And he weighs 346 pounds.

Making him the heaviest person ever in the NFL to score an offensive touchdown.

Because apparently, that's a stat that everyone keeps track of...

Tag, You're It

Here's a viral Vine for you.

Will Parks is a safety for the University of Arizona Wildcats.

When his team faced the Utes from the University of Utah a week ago, the game ended in a tie at the end of four quarters, going into overtime.

The four captains from each team met at mid-field for a coin toss.

As the referee stepped forward to announce who'd won, Will started to walk away.

The referee tapped Will on the shoulder pad, probably to keep him there until the announcement was made.

So Will turned around and gently tagged the ref on the shoulder.


And viral. At this writing, close to a quarter-million hits, with close to 13 million loops.

Get a Room!

Ridiculously hot, or soooo uncomfortable.

That's how people are reacting to the moment on last night's American Music Awards when Megan Trainor and Charlie Puth locked lips.

And they were serious about "Marvin Gaye" and getting it on.

Check it out, and see which side of the fence you fall on...

A Fitting Tribute to the Parisian Victims

At the American Music Awards last night, the producers put aside some time to recognize those lost in the Parisian terror attacks just a little more than a week ago.

Celine Dion performed "Hymne a L'Amour," a French standard meaning "Hymn to Love."

The translation of part of the song is so very meaningful:

"If one day life tears you away from me
If you die than you will be far from me
What's it matter if you love me
Because I will die too.
We will have for us, eternity
in the blue of all the immensity
in heaven, no more problems
My love do you believe that we love each other
God, reunite those who love each other."

Pushing a Little Too Far?

Maybe it's me. Maybe I'm behind the times.

Kim Kardashian's talking about getting a push present.

I've never heard of a push present, have you?

Apparently, it's a gift a husband gives to his wife after the wife has carried a baby for nine months and given birth.

Kim wrote about it on her website:

"I like the idea of a push present—after nine months of pregnancy it's a sweet and well-deserved thank you."

She says she has friends who've gotten gifts like a "special diamond ring" and a new car.

What does Kim expect from Kanye? How about a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker, like the ones she's worn in the past to gala events.
"We women go through an entire pregnancy carrying a baby...of course it only makes sense that we get something amazing to show how amazing we are! LOL!"

Remember the good old days, when a newborn baby was push present enough?

Bite Me Off a Piece of That Gold Leaf Bar

I do believe this is the true definition of decadence.

The folks at Nestle, the fine purveyors of chocolate items, have announced a limited-edition specialty item.

It's called the Sublime Gold Kit Kat, and it's covered in edible 24-carat gold leaf.

Yes, you read that correctly. Edible gold.

They'll be sold only in Japan, and only in eight stores that specialize in "selling only the most premium of Kit Kats in the fanciest of flavors," according to The Daily Meal.

The stores have just hit the one-million customer milestone, and the Sublime Gold Kit Kat is part of the celebration.

And it's only going to cost a little over $16. For one gold-leafed Kit Kat stick. Not even a full bar.

Sounds expensive, until you consider that's what you pay for a Kit Kat at any movie concession stand here in The States.
