Party at My Mom's House!

Actor Paul Rudd is a big fan of the Kansas City Royals. He spent the latter part of his childhood in Kansas, even studying at the University of Kansas.

So the other night, when the Royals won the American League Championship Series and earned their way into the World Series - on the strength of eigh consecutive playoff wins, no less! - Paul was there.

A local reporter caught up with him afterwards, and for whatever reason, the reporter let Paul ramble on about his activities as a fan this season.

And then, Paul invited the world to party at his mom's house.

Why not? I mean, he's a movie star, he can afford a few kegs, right?

Imagine what he's going to have to do if the Royals win the World Series...

Did They Put a Ring On It?

Rumors are flying that Lady Gaga and her Chicago Fire boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, are prepared to tie the knot.

Of course, neither of them is confirming that, so the tabloidetectives are piecing things together.
  1. It started a couple of weeks ago when actress Sophia Bush guested on Chicago Fire and posted a picture to Instagram that shows Taylor wearing a ring – that she says is not a prop for the show.
  2. Then The Daily Star reported that the two of them had a small family ceremony where they pledged their devotion to one another.
  3. And the famous "unnamed sources" say that Gaga and her boy plan to get married next year.
Et voila! Lady Gaga's engaged!


I'm REALLY excited to be on @nbcchicagofire tonight! Just about as excited as I was to see my buddy #TaylorKinney at our press day yesterday. Bear hugs are the best hugs. #ChicagoFire #ChicagoPD #ThatsHisPersonalRing #NotForTheShow #EveryoneCalmDown #LindsayAndSeverideArentMarried

"There Should Be No Fan"

This is one of the most insane things you're likely to see this campaign season.

On Wednesday, there was a debate scheduled between Florida's incumbent Republican governor, Rick Scott, and his challenger, former Democratic governor Charlie Crist.

Charlie placed a small electric fan under his podium to cool him off.

The rules of the debate said "there should be no fan." And because there was a fan, Rick refused to come out.


That's what happened. The incumbent finally came out, but minutes later, after leaving the moderators of the debate twisting in the wind, trying to decide what to do.

Very awkward and extremely insane. Check it out.

Panic Much?

The Ebola virus is scary. No doubt about it.

And things are pretty rough in western Africa. That's for certain.

And there are cases of Ebola here in the US. But some of the stories we're hearing are - what's a good word? - sensationalized?

That's the tack taken by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

He pretty much skewers media coverage of the Ebola "crisis." Check it out.

Fury-ously Funny!

There's never been any doubt that Brad Pitt has a sense of humor.

Just watch any of the Ocean movies, or Mr. & Mrs. Smith. He's a funny guy.

But he's on the circuit now promoting his new WWII film, Fury. Not so funny.

But that doesn't stop him from being funny while promoting the movie - it's not like there's some sort of rule on that, right?

Check out his breakdance conversation with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Very funny indeed!

Veep's Son Out

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Hunter Biden, son of the US Vice President, was discharged from the US Navy Reserve in February.

The Navy's not saying why, but the WSJ says it's because he tested positive for cocaine.

Through his lawyer, the younger Biden stated, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge."

A lawyer by profession, Biden joined the Navy late - signing up with the Reserves in 2013 at the age of 43.

His dad, Joe Biden, hasn't made any comment yet.

Coolest Sound Ever?

Cory Williams is a blogger and filmmaker who writes and talks a lot about Alaska.

His commentaries are free-wheeling, and in the middle of one of his episodes, he and his girlfriend found a frozen lake outside Anchorage.

Naturally, he had to try to skip a rock across the frozenness - I mean, you just have to, right?

The skipper/ bouncer makes a very unusual and pretty amazing unexpected sound.

But the best part is the unbridled glee Cory shows at the discovery, and at each rock skipped after the first.

That's a lot of fun to watch! Skip ahead to about 3:45 for start of the rock skipping section...

Seriously? You're a Clown!

A club claiming to represent professional clowns in America (these are the dress-up kind of clowns, not the ones we send to Congress every couple of years) is very upset with the producers of American Horror Story.

Why? Because of the show's use of a killer clown in its story line.

The spokesperson for the club, Clyde D. Scope (that's his clown name, say it out loud a couple of times and you'll get it) says that he and his buddies "do not support in any way, shape or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia."

That's the clinical term for the fear of clowns. Which is a pretty common fear.

Interesting that Clyde D. Scope and his pals are picking on AHS. Clearly, they missed Stephen King and Pennywise in "It."

As for the club, if any members ever run into any AHS producers, they'll likely douse them with a bit of seltzer water - or at least ask them to smell the daisy on their lapels.

Are They or Are They Not?

Star magazine's cover screams about "Ellen & Portia's Baby Joy! They're Finally Starting a Family."

They're talking about Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, married now for six years and rumored to be expecting a child.

Who better to address those rumors than Ellen and Portia themselves?

And where better than on Ellen's daytime TV show?

No one and no place are the correct answers.

Consider the topic put to rest - or is it?

"... A Possible Blown Air Duct..."

You've just settled into your seat as your plane – carrying you and 189 other humans – takes off from San Francisco, on the way to Dallas.

Suddenly, you hear a "loud popping and ripping noise" and the plane's cabin walls start to buckle inward.

We've all seen that movie, right?

Except this was real life, this week, on an American Airlines flight…

I'm sorry, but if this happened to me, I'd be taking a train for the rest of my life.
