Linkin Park will always carry the Nu-Metal tag . . . but Mike Shinoda thinks they were different than their peers. Quote, “We were more introspective. What we didn’t like about what was going on in the scene was that it was very frat rock. It was toxic masculinity. “We didn’t know the term yet. We just didn’t like how everything was about tough-guy [stuff], and we didn’t identify with tough-guy [stuff]. So nobody wanted to sign us because we didn’t fit. They couldn’t see us onstage.” (Loudwire)

You try to do that with an old Barracuda now and it’s gonna break.” Keenan added “I can’t do a whole set of those songs. I can pepper them in, so I can still do some of those things, but you can’t… If you’re actually sitting down and thinking about it, you can’t expect some of those dudes, [from] back in the day, to do the thing they did… 30 years ago, 40 years ago. You can’t expect that out of that body. Your body doesn’t do those things forever.”
Whoopi Goldberg has been known to get gassy on “The View” from time to time. But not every suspicious noise is a butt biscuit. Sometimes the ladies’ coffee mugs make a rumbling sound when they slide across the table that simulates flatulence. Whoopi even revealed during a show, quote, “We get blamed for dropping gas, when in fact it’s a cup.” Luckily, a solution has been found. They’ve been using COASTERS since late March. So now, if it sounds like a fart . . . well, maybe it could still be the chair. (???) (Entertainment Weekly)

10 Disturbing Movies Millennial Parents Show Their Kids
When you introduce your kids to the stuff you used to watch when you were their age, you realize that some of that stuff is actually pretty messed up.
Here’s a list of 10 disturbing movies that millennial parents show their kids:
- “The Dark Crystal” (1982): Yeah, it’s a Jim Henson puppet movie, but some of those puppets are legit NIGHTMARE FUEL.
- “Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey” (1983): Okay, so the two dogs and the cat make it back home safely, but it’s pretty traumatic watching them face constant peril . . . G rating or not.
- “Matilda” (1996): Based on the book by the now-infamous Roald Dahl, it features neglectful parents and an evil teacher who throws children by their hair and force-feeds them as punishment.
- “Labyrinth” (1986): A teenage girl calls out to the Goblin King to take her baby brother away, then instantly regrets it and tries to get him back. Featuring David Bowie in some seriously tight pants as the Goblin King.
- “The Witches” (1990): Roald Dahl again, and these witches are seriously creepy . . . even for adults.
- “Legend” (1985): Before he played Pennywise in the ’90s version of “It”, Tim Curry was pretty terrifying as the Lord of Darkness.
- “Willow” (1988): It starts with an evil queen slaughtering pregnant women and their babies, in order to thwart a prophecy that says a child about to be born will end her reign.
- “The Secret of NIMH” (1982): A G-rated animated movie about the National Institute of Mental Health experimenting on rats.
- “Hook” (1991): Robin Williams’grown-up version of Peter Pan has to rescue his children from Captain Hook, but he doesn’t come off as a terribly good dad.
- “Return to Oz” (1985): Electroshock therapy, wheelie monsters, and a room featuring an evil princess’s extra heads? That’s quality children’s entertainment right there. (Okay, I call B.S. “The Neverending Story”, anyone? That scene where Atreyu’s horse “dies” in the Swamps of Sadness?)
