Boomers say watching porn and a ‘snore room’ are keys to happy relationship – LINK


On Friday, Will Smith put out a five-minute video, where he apologizes for slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. It seems sincere, but it also took him almost SIX MONTHS to put out. The video is titled “It’s been a minute,” and it HAS.  Actually, it’s been about 244,000 MINUTES since the Oscars.  Here are a few “highlights” from it . . .Will says he didn’t apologize to Chris in his acceptance speech later that night because he was “fogged out” and “fuzzy” . . . and wasn’t thinking clearly. He says he has reached out to Chris, but Chris’ people say he’s not ready to talk about it . . . and when that time comes, Chris will give him a call. Will directly apologizes to Chris . . . Chris’ mother . . . Chris’ family, specifically Chris’ younger brother Tony.  Will says he had a great relationship with Tony, and he realizes it’s probably now irreparable. Does Will think that he is a piece of ish? Also…he says Jada did NOT tell him to do anything to Chris . . . and that she had nothing to do with it.  He also apologizes to her, and his kids. Will apologizes to his fellow nominees . . . and to everyone…

How is Chris taking it all in? Rock took the stage Friday night and addressed Will as “Suge Smith,” in reference to “Suge” Knight, who was known for his tough and often violent demeanor. Rock didn’t directly address Smith’s public apology video, but he wanted to make it known that he does not see himself as a victim after the infamous Oscars slap. “Everybody is trying to be a f**king victim. If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims. Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day. I got kids.” He added, “Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face.”

Actress and comedian Pat Carroll passed away of pneumonia on Saturday at the age of 95.  She’s best known for providing the voice of Ursula the Sea Witch in Disney’s original, animated “The Little Mermaid”.  That’s her singing Ursula’s big number, “Poor Unfortunate Souls”.  She also made many appearances on TV . . . everything from “The Carol Burnett Show” to “ER” . . . and did several Broadway shows. Also — Nichelle Nichols died of heart failure on Saturday at the age of 89.  She famously played Nyota Uhura on “Star Trek:  The Original Series” and in many of the “Star Trek” movies. She was one of the first Black women to be featured in a major TV show.

Joe Quinn from “Stranger Things” got to meet Eddie Munson’s heroes:  Metallica.  The band invited him backstage at Lollapalooza. James Hetfield said, quote, “I’m a big fan of [the show] since Season One.  My kids and I, it’s been a bonding experience for us . . . Thanks for doing [our song] justice, by the way.  You definitely did.” Joe said they’re all he’s been listening to for two years.  Metallica did a quick “Master of Puppets” jam session with him before giving him a replica guitar of the one he uses in the show.  They even signed it for him. Lars Ulrich also joked, quote, “We’d like to make an announcement.  Metallica is now a five-piece, guys.”

Speaking of Stranger Things & Season 4. You can watch a 4 minute blooper reel here (LINK)

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese can’t seem to get enough of each other lately: After wrapping production on the upcoming Killers of the Flower Moon (LINK), the actor and director are teaming up for another Apple Originals Film called The Wager. The Wager is set in the 1740s and tells the story of a British naval ship of the same name. After it crashed in South America’s Patagonia region while chasing a Spanish ship filled with treasure, the remaining 30-person crew somehow braved the seas in a patched-together boat that they were able to land on the coast of Brazil.

We may have missed it, but yesterday was a CRAZY important birthday – at least we think it might have been. That’s right, according to a fan page online, George Jetson was born on July 31st….2022.  Yup.  Just to let everyone know, this is the start.  40 years from now – FLYING CARS! Neve Campbell might be out of “Scream 6”, but she’s already returned to her scary movie roots in a new blood donation campaign for the American Red Cross.  Their tagline is:  Blood isn’t just for movies, it saves lives. There’s a (surprisingly well-produced) video for the campaign, and it shows how bad decisions in horror movies lead to blood loss.  Like running away from a killer without a weapon, or going to a cheerleading camp next to an abandoned insane asylum. Neve said, quote, “Lots of people need blood, whether they’re fighting cancer or giving birth or say, potentially getting stabbed . . . “50% of Americans like watching blood get spilled in horror movies.  What’s scary is that only 3% donate it.”

Britney Spears finished her tell-all memoir, but we won’t get to read it anytime soon . . . because there’s not enough paper.  Apparently, there’s been a global shortage of paper from a lot of people ordering books during the pandemic.  And there’s also a labor shortage in the paper plants. Her book was originally supposed to come out in January, but now it’s up in the air, until this whole paper thing gets figured out.

Ne-Yo‘s (LINK) wife, Crystal Renay, says she will not be staying with her husband after claiming he has been unfaithful to her for eight years. Renay shared a personal update about her marriage with Ne-Yo on social media on Saturday telling followers that saying she is “heartbroken and disgusted” over the situation would be an “understatement.” “For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors,” Ne-Yo responded on Twitter Sunday afternoon and posted a lengthy note on Instagram. “Personal matters are not meant to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”

Tragedy struck Kenny Chesney’s show in Denver on Saturday when a fan fell off the side of an escalator and died.  Police said (LINK) she was sitting on the railing when it happened.  Kenny told “The Denver Post” he was “devastated” by the news, and that he’s grieving for the woman and her family.

Do you ever listen to music before bed? That might be helping to keep you well rested. A new study suggests that listening to music, whether it be happy or sad, can improve sleep quality and well-being. Music is thought to improve sleep by distracting us from stressful thoughts or background noise. Most research on this subject has focused on the elderly or those with sleep disorders, and this study looked at healthy, young adults. Folks in the study were asked to listen to the audio before bed for 5 consecutive nights and there were 2 days between conditions. Participants reported quality of sleep and wellbeing each morning. Results showed that both happy and sad music showed was associated with improvements in subjective sleep quality over listening to pink noise before bed. There were no significant differences between improvements from listening to happy music and improvements from listening to sad music. Listening to either type of music reduced stress and negative affect the next day for participants and improved their reporting of life satisfaction.

Sports Report 1

The Cardinals rookie right-hander Andre Pallante pitched eight scoreless innings to lead the Cardinals to a 5-0 victory at Nationals Park yesterday. Pallante struck out eight for the first time as a starter, and pitched in the ninth inning for the first time as a starter. So we’ll see what happens as the trade deadline approaches and the Cardinals hopefully add some pitching. Of course the Juan Soto sweepstakes has less than 48 hrs as the deadline is 5pm tomorrow. According to the analysts and club sources The #Nationals now have only 3 teams left in the bidding for a Juan Soto trade. The teams are believed to be #Padres #Cardinals and #Dodgers with the #Cardinals offering the most talent off their major league club and the Padres the most talent from Farm.

Cardinals play the Cubs here at Busch stadium tomorrow at 645.

Bill Russell died (LINK) yesterday.  Here’s Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and several other NBA greats, talking about the amazing feats that made him one of best in sports.

Of Note:  Bill was 6 foot 9.  He won 11 NBA Championships during his 13-year career, including eight in a row.

In 2009, then-commissioner of the NBA, David Stern, announced (LINK) that the Finals MVP Award would be named after Bill Russell.  For Bill, the moment was two-fold.

Jake Paul (LINK)‘s boxing match against Hasim Rahman Jr. has been canceled, according to the Problem Child’s boxing promotion, after the 12-1 fighter allegedly failed to meet contractual obligations tied to his weight.

Paul vs. Rahman Jr. was set to go down August 6 at Madison Square Garden in NYC … but just one week before the highly anticipated scrap, Most Valuable Promotions announced the fight was off. It all has to do with the weight of Hasim, who previously fought at heavyweight, weighing more than 260 pounds. For the fight with Jake, Rahman Jr. agreed to weigh a maximum of 200 pounds at weigh-ins, the day before the fight.

However, MPV says Rahman Jr. was obligated to show the NY state athletic commission officials he was losing weight in the lead up to the fight, in an effort to prevent a big weight cut in an attempt to make 200 pounds. Unfortunately, MVP says Hasim had lost less than one pound since signing the contract for the fight more than 3 weeks ago.
