Charlie St Cloud has to choose whether to continue to see his dead brother or save the woman he loves. After watching that trailer I choose to see Charlie St Cloud when it comes out on July 30th. I admit I am a Zac Efron fan, and that movie looks like it will leave a lasting impression longer than the one that his gorgeous blue eyes do!

Before Larry King was wearing suspenders and doing outrageous interviews, he was doing an outrageous show called Miami Undercover. Words can not express the freaking awesomeness it was to see the 27 year old doing that 1961 show. Wow!
I have seen Weird Al Yankovic live in concert and it was one of the best shows I have ever seen, no lie! But sadly when I saw him he didn’t shred like that during our show. Seriously who knew he could do a solo like that? Just for that I am going to have go see him live again! Seriously wasn’t that awesome? I completely agree with the crowd’s reaction!!! Weird Al f*cking rocks!
xoxo Mark and Ayn!
Back in 1978 Bill Hayes’ story about his time in a Turkish prison that was adapted from his book into the Oscar winning movie Midnight Express starring the late great Brad David. Now almost 40 years later he is telling the real story of what happened to the National Geographic channel tonight at 10p in Locked Up Abroad: The Real Midnight Express. Something he was not able to do until now and what an captivating story it is. I can still remember seeing Midnight Express for the first time and sitting there being held hostage by how engrossing the story was. Recently when I sat down to watch Hayes tell his story in this documentary I was even more engrossed. I couldn’t tear myself away from the screen. What he went through and how he survived his time in the Turkish prison just kept my interest from the beginning of the hour until the end. Even 4 decades later his unfortunate journey brought tears to his eyes and to mine. What he went through should have left a bitter shriveled up man, but he has a strength that just left me in awe of him. He was just 23 years old and made the stupid mistake of smuggling hashish from Turkey to the US, but was is it worth all he went through in those 4 years in prison. His story opened to the world what was going on in Turkish prisons back in the late 1970’s and now in the new millennium telling it again will give a new generation a story of strength during and after an unimaginable experience and how to survive it.
Locked Up Abroad: The Real Midnight Express is something that I think should be watched because not only can the real story be better than the fictionalized one, but it can also beone of the best hours of television you will watch in a really long time. Then after you watch it, re-watch the 1978 movie again because you will have a completely new appreciation for it. I know I did.
Bill Hayes’ story of being Locked Up Abroad is the first in the series of documentaries that will be airing on the National Geographic Channel on Tuesday for the next few weeks and they will be showing the stories of people who were locked up in Barbados, Cuzco, Saddam’s Iraq, Tokyo and Bangkok.
Tonight on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland at 10p the girls set each other up on blind dates and Betty White gets a romantic date Carl Reiner. While the two 88 year olds really hit it off, things don’t seem to work out so well for Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Janes Leeves. I can’t wait to see how their fix up work out because TV Land’s first original comedy has me laughing in hysterics every week! Seriously who else besides me is loving this show?
BTW Carl Reiner was on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson yesterday and he told him about a special bond he has with Betty White’s late husband that has him indebted to them forever.
UPDATE: Valerie Bertinelli Tweeted this picture of Carl Reiner, Betty White and Tim Conway together on the Hot in Cleveland set and it just makes me love TV Land even more because they are putting some of my favorite actors back on our TV screens. Seriously we need more shows cast our TV legends as guest stars because I think they can help save sitcoms by showing these younger actors how it should be done.
I can’t remember the last time I saw Joe Pesci and yesterday at his 9th Annual Joe Pesci Celebrity Skins Game we saw just how old he has gotten. The actor is 67 so it is natural for him to look his age, but cause I haven’t seen him in a while it is shocking to see him all grey like that. I don’t mean this as an offense, but with that goatee and his white hair to me he really looks like Goodfella now. You know like how movies want us to envision them to look, am I alone on this?
Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous style and she finally did one for ShowStudio.com that actually makes her look good, but she had to look like a man to do so. To me she is not the prettiest female musician, but as a man she is actually kind of hot. Maybe she should consider getting a sex change and go by Manly Go Go? Although then she would have to give up her sense of style that is only works for her.
BTW check out the interview she did with ShowStudio.com.
Larry King was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show yesterday before he announced that he was leaving his CNN show and we learned what he could do now that he will have a lot of free time on his hands. Larry says he has the ability to either tell your future or interrupt your dreams, so he took callers on the KIIS show and told them their futures or about their dreams. When he took their first calls it almost seemed like he was talking about his real life. The first caller he told them they want a three-way, then the next caller he told her she is in love with her brother-in-law and not in a brotherly way and then the third caller he told her she didn’t like her husband’s face and that he should get plastic surgery so he can have a face she does like. Sound familiar from all the rumors we have been hearing? But then it goes on and it just gets weird where is telling people where to go to meet their future lovers and they are common run of the mill places. It is really strange and I want to know if his predictions came true.
While Larry King was foreseeing the callers’ futures he was hinting to the guy that he wants to replace him, that he was losing his show and that he would love to do a radio or talk show with him. I would listen/watch because you know what if Larry doesn’t have to ask boring newslike questions he is actually really fascinating. I can’t believe I am admitting that, but I love watching him on talks shows when he is the one being interviewed. His stories keep my interest like the one he told Jimmy Kimmel about his friend Mopo.
Now back to his psychic ability he said he knew he had to be on Ryan’s show on Tuesday which was the day of his announcement. Now what I want to know if he knew in advance that CNN was going to ask him to give up his show? I am not sure that they really did ask him to leave his show, that is the network’s highest rated show, it is just me using my psychic abilities.
