Pee-Wee Herman has left us.  Permanently.  Paul Reubens lost a battle with cancer . . . a battle nobody knew he was fighting.  He was 70. Like Norm MacDonald, Paul never told anybody.  His family issued a statement saying, quote, “Paul bravely and privately fought cancer for years with his trademark tenacity and wit.” Paul actually had a statement of his own ready to be released upon his death.  He said, quote, “Please accept my apology for not going public with what I’ve been facing for the last six years. “I have always felt a huge amount of love and respect from my friends, fans and supporters.  I have loved you all so much and enjoyed making art for you.” Paul developed the Pee-Wee character while he was with the Groundlings comedy troupe in the 1970s.  He turned it into a stage show, which led to an HBO special in 1981. He broke HUGE with “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” . . . directed by Tim Burton . . . in 1985.  A sequel called “Big Top Pee-Wee” followed in 1988. Then came the classic Saturday morning kids’ show “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse”, which ran from 1986 to 1991 on CBS. It probably would have lasted longer, except he got arrested for indecent exposure in a porn theater in Sarasota, Florida in July of 1991. The Pee-Wee character disappeared for a while after that, but Paul continued to act in smaller parts, in movies like Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”“Mystery Men”, and “Blow”.  He was also the voice of Lock in “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. In 2002, he suffered another setback when he was charged with possessing “obscene” material depicting an underage child in a sexual manner.  Those charges were dropped, and Paul explained the material was part of a vintage erotica collection he’d purchased, and which he’d considered innocent.  He added that he was NOT “titillated by images of children.” In 2010, Paul did a revival of “The Pee-Wee Herman Show” on Broadway . . . and made a movie for Netflix called “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday” in 2015. (Hollywood Reporter)

David Letterman had Pee-Wee Herman on his original show, “Late Night with David Letterman” several times.  Here he is with Dave in 1985, a week before his first movie “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” would open.  His movie would be a hit. HE HERE IS TALKING WITH DAVE. Of Note:  It was #4 for the August 1985 box office behind “Back to the Future”, “National Lampoon’s European Vacation”, and “Weird Science”. Remember this? Pee-wee’s playhouse theme song… AUDIO. Something a lot of people don’t know about “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” . . . the theme song was sung by Cyndi Lauper.  Paul Reubens and Mark Mothersbaugh from Devo helped write it, along with George McGrath.  But Cyndi didn’t want people to know it was her, so she had them credit her as “Ellen Shaw.”

Tributes poured in for Paul Reubens yesterday.  Here are some highlights:

Tim Burton. . . who made his directorial debut with “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”:  “I’ll never forget how Paul helped me at the beginning of my career.  It would not have happened without his support.” Elvira, Mistress of the Dark:  “I am crushed.  The world has lost one of the funniest human beings who ever lived . . . I will miss you and all the wonderful times we spent together more than you’ll ever know.” Natasha Lyonne, who made her debut on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” when she was 6 years old:  “Thank you for my career & your forever friendship all these years & for teaching us what a true original is.” Conan O’Brien:  “Everyone I know received countless nonsensical memes from Paul on their birthday, and I mean EVERYONE.  His surreal comedy and unrelenting kindness were a gift to us all.  Damn, this hurts.” Guillermo del Toro:  “One of the patron saints of all misfitted, weird, maladjusted, wonderful, miraculous oddities.”  Cheech and Chong posted a video tribute.  You stoners might . . . but probably don’t . . . remember that Paul was in two of their flicks, “Next Movie”and “Nice Dreams”, in 1980 and ’81.

If you thought Cousin Eddie from “National Lampoon’s Vacation” was crazy, you should see the guy who lives in his house now. A pair of YouTubers tried to check out the house in Boone, Colorado, and the dude was NOT having it.  He told them the movie sucks, and they need to GROW UP.  And he wouldn’t let them film on the property. The guy was pretty sketchy and a little scary.  One of the YouTubers said he was making no sense, and appeared to be HIGH. So they drove down the road a bit and filmed the house from the road . . . and the guy got in his truck, and drove up and started yelling at them.  He said they couldn’t film, even from down the street.  He also threatened to call the cops. The YouTubers then drove a few miles away and pulled into the gravel parking lot of a small fruit stand that wasn’t open.  And while they were standing there, another guy in a blue car drove by them a couple times. They think maybe the homeowner called someone else to follow them.  Ultimately, they made the wise decision to just leave the area.  The moral of the story:  Don’t go to Cousin Eddie’s house.

It all started with a simple 36G . . . but the bras at Drake shows just keep getting bigger. During a show in D.C. over the weekend, two bras ended up onstage.  One was an H-cup, and the other was an L-cup.  (!!!) He was pretty shocked when he saw the “L”.  He said, quote, “How many letters does it go up to???” Drake’s getting a little suspicious though.  He said, quote, “Y’all just buyin’ fake bras and throwin’ ’em onstage.  There’s no way . . .”

Euphoria Star Angus Cloud passed away. We’ve learned Oakland PD and Fire Dept. responded to a 911 call made around 11:30 AM Monday by Angus Cloud‘s mother. She reported a “possible overdose,” and said Angus did not have a pulse. He was eventually pronounced dead on the scene. Angus was 25 and had just come back from Ireland where he was burying his father and best friend.

Cardi B might not get away scot-free with that microphone toss in Las Vegas — she’s now listed as the suspect in a battery … The woman who was struck by Cardi’s mic when she hurled it into the crowd at Drai’s Nightclub on Saturday … went to Las Vegas Metro PD the next day to report the incident. The woman who reported the incident to cops was standing next to the drink thrower — but she claims the mic hit her too. Some video angles seem to show the mic hitting her after it ricocheted off the other fan. She told police she’d been struck by an item — the microphone — thrown from the stage. Of course, the whole incident was captured on cameras during Cardi’s show.

As we reported, a woman in the crowd threw some kinda liquid at Cardi while she was performing … and the rapper snapped, immediately throwing the mic in retaliation. Here is something we didn’t know yesterday when we saw the footage: Prior to the altercation, Cardi and her DJ had implored the crowd to splash water on her to cool her off in the triple-digit weather — but obviously, she didn’t take kindly to whatever the woman threw. Activision has banned more than 14,000 cheaters from ‘Call of Duty’ titles ‘Modern Warfare 2’ and ‘Warzone’ on only 24 hours. The company’s Ricochet anti-cheat system has been updated to replay investigations and hallucinations to bust cheaters. ‘Game Rant’ says more ban waves could be coming as Activision gears up for the games’ season five updates.


MentalFloss.com put together a list of 13 lies that movies tell us.  Here they are:

  1. A T-Rex can’t see things that aren’t moving:  Sorry “Jurassic Park”, but this dinosaur could still see you.  According to a study, its vision is 13 times better than a human’s.
  1.  You can walk away from an explosion without being knocked over:  You’ve seen it in lots of action movies.  For this to be possible, you’d have to defy physics.
  1. There’s sound in space:  Battles in “Star Wars” are pretty loud, but in reality, sound (as we know it) doesn’t exist in space.
  1. Astronaut helmets are lit from within:  Unlike in “Interstellar”and “Countdown”, helmets are not lit from within because it’d cause visibility issues.
  1. Bald eagles sound majestic:  The sound of a red-tailed hawk is often used in movies, instead of the real-life cackling sound that eagles make.
  1. Gun silencers are silent:  Gun silencers only suppress the sound of gunfire, not get rid of it completely like you’ve seen in “John Wick”.
  1. When you’re arrested, you get one phone call:  Laws about making phone calls vary by state.
  1. Humans are only using a small percentage of their brains:  Sorry “Limitless”, a person using only 10% of their brain is a myth.
  1. Grainy images or video can be enhanced to perfect clarity:  It’s sort of possible, but not like how you see in movies like “Taken”or “Blade Runner”.  Photo editing can’t add facial features that aren’t already there.
  1. You can’t file a missing person report until the person has been missing for quite some time:  This is false.  There’s no waiting period before you can report a person is missing.
  1. You can suck the venom out of a snake bite:  There’s a risk of infection and it can enter your bloodstream if there’s an open wound in your mouth.  Besides, venom moves too fast for any suction tactic to make a difference.
  1. Chloroform works immediately to make people unconscious:  It actually takes two to five minutes to work IF there’s an unusually high dosage used.
  1. The human head weighs eight pounds:  “Jerry Maguire”taught us wrong.  It weighs around 11 pounds. (MentalFloss)
