Welcome to Hollyweed!
January 1st, 2017 under Old Hollywood, Pranks. [ Comments: none ]


Not sure if you have heard, but some pranksters took part of the Os from the iconic Hollywood Sign and changed their direction so that it now reads Hollyweed instead. Only problem is that Recreational Pot won’t be available in California until a year from now, so the new name is a little premature. Still funny though! Even funnier if you are smoking what the signs says!
Oh and thanks to Patricia Heaton for taking the best photo of the legendary landmark’s makeover.

Don Rickles found a new way to roast chestnuts!
December 20th, 2016 under Ads, Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]


Before there were the Roasts on Comedy Central, there was Don Rickles. Even though Best Buy is all about new technology, they asked 90-year-old Don Rickles to star in their Christmas ad doing what he does best, Roasting. But he didn’t Roast just any one. He roasted chestnuts. It is not like how I remember it being done when I was a kid in NYC, but it is just enjoyable. I know I haven’t smiled that much since my mom would buy me a bag of roasted chestnuts after we experienced the holiday in Manhattan! I can still smell it!

Is this worst celebrity interview ever?
December 19th, 2016 under Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]


We have seen many horrible interviews between celebrities and newspeople, but this one that The Hollywood Reporter did with Jerry Lewis might be the worst one ever.
The reporter actually didn’t do anything wrong nor asked anything horrible, but the legendary actor was grumpy throughout the whole 7 minute interview. If you don’t want to do the interview, then say no. It is better than this!
Well, not for me, who gets a post out of it.

So that is what The Dick Van Dyke Show’s living room looks like in color?
December 9th, 2016 under CBS, Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]


I like so many people grew up watching The Dick Van Dyke Show as a kid and wondered what their house would like in color as compared to black and white. Well, CBS is using their magic and they are colorizing two episodes from the series this Sunday night at 8p.
Here is a sneak peek of what we can expect and I almost feel over my ottoman in excitement. Who knew it was bright green? I swore it was grey. But then again, I thought everything in their house was grey for some reason…

I Love the new Lucy statue!
August 6th, 2016 under Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]


Today is Lucille Ball’s 105th birthday and the town that she grew up in gave her a big present that she would’ve love. Her ugly bronze statue was replaced by one that looks exactly like her. Sculptor Carolyn Palmer captured her essence, so her spirit will live on forever in the hometown that she loved as a young girl.
Plamer spent 9 months creating the legendary comedian’s likeness and she hopes “that all the Lucy fans are pleased and that Lucille Ball herself would have enjoyed this image of her.” I know I love it, what about you?
