I Did The Tree Sit And Let Her Go
A woman in Wisconsin made a comment on Facebook saying that her husband went on a business trip and caught chlamydia from his face mask. Yes, that’s her actual belief on how he caught it. Everyone else on social media has a different theory.
The top grossing movie theater in the country last week was the Ford-Wyoming Drive-In in Dearborn, Michigan. It brought in $127,300.
A woman in North Hollywood, California went viral on Friday for having a meltdown at a Trader Joe’s when the employees asked her to wear a mask.
If you’ve seen “Face Mask Exempt Cards” with what looks like a federal seal on them floating around on social media, they’re obviously not real.
One in four Americans say they’ll never go back to the gym, even when the pandemic is over. But for the people who do go back, nine in 10 say they’ll be more vigilant about wiping down equipment.

There is 2 cast members from Gilligans Island still with us here on Earth. Dawn Wells and Tina Louise. Tina is 86. Dawn is 81 and not doing great. She is battling dementia at an assisted living facility. And now she’s got a problem with a nosy “fan”. Dawn’s manager recently filed legal documents to protect her from a guy who’s allegedly been trying to take advantage of her. He says the guy has been writing and calling Dawn since March, telling her he wants to marry her, while extracting personal info from her, like her social security number. Despite her condition, Dawn has rejected his advances, but he won’t go away, and it’s causing her, quote, “great mental angst.” Dawn’s manager thinks he’s capable of physically harming her. Luckily a judge agreed, and barred him from coming within 100 yards of her.
Emily Sears — a model known for starring in some saucy Carl’s Jr. ads — is recovering from successful brain surgery … and looking forward to getting her life back after a major health scare. She underwent a craniotomy last week in order for surgeons to remove a cavernoma, a cluster of abnormal blood vessels that was irritating her brain tissue and causing seizures. See,she was in a store in L.A. back in April 2019 when she had her first seizure and collapsed, which led to her diagnosis. Despite trying several medications to deal with the issue, she had at least 5 more seizures before suffering a bad fall near the end of the year … which is when she decided to schedule brain surgery to remove the cluster. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic delayed her procedure, but she was finally able to have it done last week … and it was an extremely intricate process. Emily’s surgery took more than 5 hours because the cavernoma was against the speech area of her brain … so doctors had to wake her up in the middle of it to test her speech with flashcards, to make sure they didn’t remove any vital tissue. Thankfully, Emily says the surgery was a success — the whole cluster was removed — and she’s happy and healing and eager to return to normal living.
Long time porn actor Ron Jeremy pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape, and one of sexual assault in a Los Angeles court. Jeremy was charged with forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood, as well as sexually assaulting two women, ages 33 and 46, in separate incidents at a West Hollywood bar in 2017. Jeremy has been dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct, but has always maintained his innocence, which he did again after his arrest last week. “I am innocent of all charges. I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support,” he tweeted. If convicted on the charges, the 67-year-old Jeremy could face up to 90 years in prison. He remains in custody, and his bail is set at $6.6 million. His next court appearance is set for August 31.
Theres a serious effort to change the name of John Wayne Airport in Orange County because the actor was famously racist and homophobic.The Orange County Democratic Party passed a resolution, calling out Wayne’s “racist and bigoted statements” and demanding the O.C. Board of Supervisors rename the airport Orange County Airport. If you want context look up an interview he did with Playboy magazine in 1971. Its all pretty disgusting. The airport was named after John Wayne in 1979 … AFTER the Playboy interview. Wayne, probably the most famous cowboy actor ever, died in 1979. No word on whether the Board of Supervisors will pull the plug on the name
The Black Lives Matter movement has much bigger ambitions than adjusting the casting on animated shows . . . but even the little things can make a difference. Mike Henry, who’s white, has stepped back from voicing Cleveland Brown, one of the few Black characters on “Family Guy”. There’s no word on who will be replacing him. He said, quote, “It’s been an honor to play Cleveland on ‘Family Guy’ for 20 years. I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color. Therefore, I will be stepping down from the role.” And on Friday, “The Simpsons” announced that they’ll no longer use white actors to play characters of color, and will re-cast those already voicing characters of color. “Moving forward, ‘The Simpsons’ will no longer have White actors voice non-White characters.” That means changes will be coming for Carl Carlson, police officer Lou, and Dr. Hibbert, among others.
The theatrical release of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has been bumped back again. The movie, which stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki, is now slated for an August 12 release. The studio is opening the movie in the middle of the week “to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time” and they are planning to play the film “longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy.” The theatrical re-release of Nolan’s Inception has also been bumped to July 31.
Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most lucrative film franchises of all time, grossing over $4.5 billion across five feature films. There IS a reboot coming as we have talked about. BUT aside from that but under the same Pirates flag, if you will, there is a female centric Pirates in the works. Signed on to be the female lead is…Margot Robbie. No plot details yet but again it isn’t a spinoff but a wholly original story under the Pirates moniker. Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both.
A new Muppets show is coming to Disney +. It’s called “Muppets Now”. Here’s part of the trailer. (Like “The Muppet Show” a long time ago, this one will feature celebrity guests, like Seth Rogen and Aubrey Plaza. Is Kermit’s voice getting deeper?
You’ve probably said to yourself at some point over the past four years, “We’ll be done with this ‘Baby Shark’ nonsense eventually, right?” Well, you were wrong. The original video has almost 6 BILLION views, and now there’s a TV show. “Baby Shark’s Big Show” is coming to Nickelodeon, starting with a holiday special in December. Nick says it’s excited to, quote, “dive deeper into this incredible world.”
On Saturday, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen went undercover at a right-wing militia rally and led them in an offensive, racist song, The “March for Our Rights 3” rally in Olympia, Washington was being held by a group called the Three Percenters. Cohen was dressed in a costume and acted like he was merely another musical guest. (AUDIO)Targets of the song he sang were Dr. Anthony Fauci, Barack Obama, the World Health Organization, CNN, George Soros, his “friends,” Chinese people and others. “Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu,” Cohen led people to sing. “Chinese people, what we gonna do? Nuke ’em up like in World War II,” was another line. It turns out, before the rally, Cohen had posed as a last-minute donor who provided security–but that security blocked rally organizers from turning off generators or removing Cohen from the stage. He was later taken away by his security detail after organizers unplugged his microphone.
Only ONE artist can say he has a Top 40 album in every decade since the 1960s. And that artist is BOB DYLAN. His latest album, “Rough and Rowdy Ways”, debuted at #2 this week with 53,000 copies sold. It’s also his highest-charting album in over a decade . . . since “Together Through Life” debuted at #1 in 2009. Bob had eight Top 40 albums in the ’60s, 14 in the ’70s, seven in the ’80s, four in the ’90s, seven in the 2000s . . . nine in the ’10s, and now one in the ’20s. His first was “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan”, which peaked at #22 in 1963. Bob was denied a #1 album this week by LIL BABY’s “My Turn”, which sold 70,000 copies to stay on top for a fourth week
CHASE RICE and CHRIS JANSON did shows in different parts of the country on Saturday . . . and people are mad at both of them for, well, acting as if there’s no pandemic. They each posted videos that didn’t show much, if any, social distancing. Chase’s show was at Tennessee’s Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. It used to be a maximum-security prison, but now it’s a concert venue. There were around 1,000 people, and the video on his Instagram Story showed the audience jammed shoulder-to-shoulder and singing along at the top of their lungs. It’s hard to find anyone wearing a mask. He took the clip down yesterday. Chris was part of the Highway 30 Music Fest in Filer, Idaho and his video showed him playing to a “sea of fans.” He also deleted his clip yesterday. (Here’s a different video from the fest that shows fans and other acts.) KELSEA BALLERINI hit up Twitter to call out Chase. She said, “Imagine being selfish enough to put thousands of people’s health at risk, not to mention the potential ripple effect, and play a NORMAL country concert right now. “@ChaseRiceMusic, we all want [and need] to tour. We just care about our fans and their families enough to wait.”
It looks like one of Tom Petty’s long-gestating passion projects is finally about to surface. According to his daughter, Adria Petty, a collection of leftovers and alternate takes from his beloved 1994 solo album, Wildflowers, should be coming out sometime in 2020. “Just because of the way that the world is at the moment, the supply chains and whatnot, I don’t want to make any promises or break any hearts, but I think we’re getting really close, and I’m really excited,” she said in a radio interview. To tease the reissue, Petty’s family also released an eight-track home demo version of “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” which features slightly different lyrics. Petty, who died in 2017, had long talked about releasing an expanded version of Wildflowers, which is how he intended it to be issued originally. Adria Petty noted the forthcoming reissue is coming together “with the community of the Heartbreakers that my dad had in a really holistic way. We waited so that we could do that in a really beautiful and thorough way. And we’ve just been having so much fun with everybody and working with Dana [Petty’s second wife] and the band and everybody to just really put this masterpiece in the framing that it deserved.”
Sammy Hagar has clarified the now-viral comments he made to Rolling Stone in which he said he’d sacrifice his health and life to play shows again if it meant getting the economy restarted. In a post on his website, Hagar noted he did the interview on May 8, “when we were already several weeks into the stay-at-home, which my family and I took very seriously, and things were starting to look up, the curve was beginning flattening.” He reiterated that “it’s about getting back to work in a safe and responsible way and getting this economy rolling again,” and stressed that he’s all in for helping since he employs 200 people, and more while touring. However, he also stressed that things might change depending on how the coronavirus proceeds. “Like everything today, it’s a watch and see over the next few months,” he explained, “but we remain cautiously optimistic that with the right improvements and safety measures in place, we might be able to play shows this year. That said, as things change, for the better or worse, we will appropriately adjust our plans.” Hagar was quoted in a Rolling Stone story this week that he’d be “comfortable playing a show before there’s a vaccine” if the coronavirus is “declining and seems to be going away,” and drew ire by adding, “This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I’d rather personally get sick and even die, if that’s what it takes.”
21 Times “The Simpsons” Predicted the Future
The Simpsons has been on TV for 31 seasons, with season 32 on the way, so it’s had a lot of opportunity to predict the future, and in some instances, it’s been amazingly prescient.

MLB will allow teams to schedule up to three exhibition games as part of their preparations for the 2020 season. If a club is not located near any potential opponents, it can schedule games against its initial regular-season opponent in days leading to Opening Day. With team owners and the MLB Players Association unable to reach a deal, commissioner Rob Manfred mandated a 60-game regular season. This year will also feature a universal designated hitter, and games in extra innings will start each half-inning with a runner on second base.
Back in May, as Major League Baseball officials deliberated how to start their season amid the coronavirus pandemic, mascots like the Phillie Phanatic and Mariner Moose were told that they’d have to stay home. But earlier this week, MLB reversed course and said it would allow mascots in stadiums when the shortened season starts in late July. However, mascots will not be allowed on the field.
One of the primary questions surrounding the NBA’s plan to resume the season at Disney World in Orlando has been the integrity of the bubble it plans to set up. How will players be protected from the virus? How will unauthorized personnel be kept out? The NBA will use local, state and federal law enforcement as added security at Disney. They will join typical venue and team security staff in Orlando, and there will not be law enforcement on the campus itself. Their role will include, but not be limited to:
- Florida Highway Patrol officers will escort team buses to and from arenas.
- Orange and Osceola County sheriff’s offices will have a presence at team hotels and arenas.
- The Department of Homeland Security, in addition to Disney and the NBA itself, will monitor social media for threats.
Security will also be responsible for maintaining a closed perimeter around the campus. However, it is unclear whether those responsibilities will fall to team personnel or law enforcement.
Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler has opted out of playing in the NBA’s restarted season in Orlando. He said: “As difficult as it will be to not be with my teammates, the health and well-being of my family has to come first. Thank you to the Nets organization for understanding and supporting me in this decision, and I will be watching and rooting for our team in Orlando.” The league is set to resume its season on July 30 with 22 teams competing in eight seeding games before the start of the playoffs. Players are also given the option of choosing not to compete, although some will lose a portion of their game checks.
It’s official: The NBA is coming back. There are still plenty of questions, like: How many extra roster spots will each team get, and would a player be replaced if he tests positive for COVID-19? Not to mention what would happen if there was an outbreak among one of the teams, or the league itself. There’s still some doubt that they’ll be able to pull this off. More than a dozen players have already tested positive . . . and Florida, where the NBA will host their “bubble,” has emerged as a major COVID-19 hotspot over the past week. There might also be a change on the jerseys . . . word has it that the NBA is planning to allow players to replace the last name on their jerseys with statements on social justice. This is kind of a compromise after several players. . . led by Kyrie Irving . . . pushed for a BOYCOTT of the restart to protest for societal change.Cam Newton will get a fresh start after reportedly agreeing to a deal with the New England Patriots. Newton and New England settled on a “one-year, incentive-laden” contract. The Carolina Panthers previously released the quarterback after nine seasons. Shoulder and foot injuries have limited the 31-year-old over the past year, holding him to only two starts in the Panthers’ last 18 games. However, he has been a difference-maker when healthy with at least 3,000 passing yards and 300 rushing yards each season from 2011 to 2018. He won the NFL MVP award in 2015 when he threw a career-high 35 touchdown passes while leading the Panthers to a 15-1 record and a trip to the Super Bowl.
The NFL decided to cancel the Hall of Fame game between the Cowboys and Steelers, which was scheduled to be played on Aug. 6. The league has also decided to postpone the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was supposed to happen on Aug. 8. The enshrinement ceremony, which was going to include the induction of candidates like Bill Cowher, Jimmy Johnson and Troy Polamalu will now take place on August 5, 2021 — kicking off the Hall of Fame weekend festivities. The Cowboys and Steelers are also expected to be the two teams playing in the Hall of Fame game when it returns next year.
The National Football League has given its teams approval to tarp over the first six to eight rows of seats in each stadium and use the area to sell camera-visible advertisements. The decision mirrors what the English Premier League has done with its lower level seats as the league restarted over the summer. However, the league is not allowing fans as it completes its 2019-20 campaign. The plan would help clubs recoup lost revenue from gate receipts this year as well as helping keep fans and players socially distanced this season. The move is not expected to affect seating arrangements in 2021.
Mike Tyson might have missed out on the modern-day equivalent of a nine-figure sum during his rematch with Evander Holyfield in June 1997. Tyson was disqualified after the third round for biting Holyfield’s ear. On the 23rd anniversary of the bout, boxing analysts estimated the disqualification and its fallout cost Iron Mike around $100 million or more. Tyson had to forfeit $3 million from his $30 million purse and received an 18-month ban. The projection comes from the money the Hall of Famer could’ve pulled in from two marquee fights. While it’s impossible to verify that number, Tyson possessed the kind of drawing power few others in boxing did. Even in 2002, when Tyson was well past his prime, he and Lennox Lewis combined to garner 1.95 million pay-per-view buys for their long-awaited encounter. That meant just under $107 million in PPV revenue alone.
Major League Soccer announced Sunday 18 players and six staff members have tested positive for the coronavirus. The league has conducted a total of 668 tests of players dating back to early June. Players have been tested every other day since training began as clubs prepare to travel to Orlando, Florida, for the MLS is Back tournament that starts July 8. The league is mandating that any individual who tests positive while in Orlando must participate in a “clinical assessment by a healthcare provider.” Those infected will be moved to an isolation area of their team hotel until they have been medically cleared to leave. The league is not expected to disclose which players or staffers have previously tested positive to the public.
FIFA voted Thursday to award the 2023 Women’s World Cup to Australia and New Zealand, topping a bid from Colombia to host the tournament. The 2023 event will expand to 32 teams, following the record-breaking interest in the 2019 World Cup that was held in France. The U.S. team defeated the Netherlands 2-0 to win, and it was the most watched Women’s World Cup match of all time. This will be the first time either country has hosted a World Cup.
Dustin Johnson collected his 21st career PGA Tour title Sunday in the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. Johnson went three under in the fourth round to finish at 19 under. Johnson now sits tied for 30th in the PGA’s all-time wins list, putting him alongside Davis Love III, Willie MacFarlane, and Craig Wood.
It took a bit longer than expected due to a rain and lightning delay, but Denny Hamlin got the win at the Pocono 350 on Sunday. Hamlin held off Kevin Harvick for the win, beating him by three seconds. Erik Jones, Chase Elliott and Aric Almirola rounded out the top five
