Back in February, a ton of celebrities and other people whom Gary Sinise has helped in some way, recorded thank-you videos to show their appreciation for all his good deeds, calling him a hero and an inspiration. There is a video of Sinise watching it for the first time which is pretty good especially if you are a military family. Its on the blog
Viacom,the company that owns Comedy Central, which produces David Spade‘s new late-night show Lights Out, is being sued after one of the staffers allegedly left the launch party drunk, and killed a pedestrian. According to a new lawsuit. Viacom was hosting the party at a nightclub in back in August, celebrating the premiere. The suit claims Jacob Gralitzer, who worked on the show, got drunk at the party and no one stopped him from driving. The suit says this guy was “severely intoxicated.” It says he got drunk “with the permission and knowledge of one or more of his supervisors at Viacom.” According to the lawsuit, he went to the valet, provided by Viacom, and the valet gave him the keys and he drove away. He was driving on Melrose at excessive speeds and ran into another car which careened onto the sidewalk, striking and killing 24-year-old Noah Benardout. He was arrested and booked for gross vehicular manslaughter while driving under the influence. According to the lawsuit filed by the victim’s estate, Viacom is responsible because it had authority over Gralitzer and could have stopped him from excessively drinking and driving. The suit claims by providing valet service the company was encouraging employees to drive to and from the party. David Spade is NOT being sued.
KYLIE JENNER and TRAVIS SCOTT teamed up for a “Playboy” photo shoot. The pictures will be in the upcoming Pleasure Issue. Although, aren’t they ALL “pleasure issues?” Kylie posted a teaser on Instagram where she appears to be fully nude, and Travis is shirtless but wearing jeans. I would imagine that’s the gist of the whole shoot. “Playboy” isn’t exactly equal opportunity when it comes to male and female nudity. As of last night, the picture had 12.3 million likes.
Millie Bobby Brown, one of the stars of Stranger Things on Netflix is doing a movie…with Netflix. She and her Paige, or as she is known in the neighborhood, NOT Millie Bobbi, wrote it together. It’s called A Time Lost. If you follow Millie at all ya know this isn’t going to be Passport to Paris or New York Minute (Olsen Twins). It’s a long-standing feud between two Long Island families that comes to a head when one of their teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer. Millie is 15 and currently in production for Enola Holmes about the sister of Sherlock Holmes. As far as a 4th season of Stranger Things? Season 3 broke records for Netflix back in April executive producer Shawn Levy said “season 4 is definitely happening”
HGTV paid $3.5 million to buy the “Brady Bunch” house . . . and who knows how much to renovate it to make the inside look exactly like the sets from the show. But it was worth it. The premiere of “A Very Brady Renovation” attracted 3.36 million viewers . . . the biggest HGTV audience in TWO YEARS. That’s even more than the series finale of “Fixer Upper” in 2018. When this is all over, HGTV is keeping the house, possibly for future specials or corporate events. An exec says, quote, “We could be sitting on a gold mine. We can’t decide until the show is done and America has seen the house again.” Meanwhile, the first game of the NFL season easily won the week, with 22.2 million people tuning in Thursday to see the Packers beat the Bears 10-3. The same amount of people saw the Patriots demolish the Steelers 33-3 in Sunday’s game.
ROBERT PATTINSON’s “Batman” movie could have as many as SIX villains in it. So far, Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, Firefly, Poison Ivy, and the Mad Hatter have been mentioned. Nobody’s been cast yet, but rumor has it Warner Brothers wants RIHANNA for Poison Ivy. It’s not clear if there have been any talks yet, but Rihanna may have stoked the rumors by mentioning the Batmobile on Instagram. They look like Catwoman boots to me. And there IS talk of casting a black woman for that character. Rihanna would probably own EITHER part.
The Hollywood Reporter wanted to settle the argument of what movie was the undisputed biggest loser in Hollywood box-office history. I have the four finalists
- John Carter (2012). The Disney produced film directed by Andrew Stanton cost approximately $363 million to make and market, but only earned $284 million worldwide, about half what it needed to break even. Disney took a $200 million write-down on the $136.6 million loss, making it the biggest box office disaster in Hollywood history.
- Cutthroat Island (1995). The swashbuckler starring Matthew Modine (MODEEN) and Gina Davis, directed by Renny Harlin, is a close second. The film cost $115 million to make and market, but only earned $15.7 million at the box office worldwide. It pushed Carolco Pictures into bankruptcy, and the company claimed a $118 million loss. Overseas marketing dollars likely pushed the loss past Heaven’s Gate.
- Heaven’s Gate (1980). This epic Western directed by Michael Cimino had a budget which would be $171 million in today’s dollars, but brought in only $3.5 million at the domestic box office. The film famously all but tanked United Artists, who had to take a $128 million loss. (Kris Kristofferson, Christopher Walken and Jeff Bridges)
- Cleopatra (1963). This Elizabeth Taylor vehicle was the most expensive movie ever made at the time, and has long been considered a bust, although that’s not quite accurate. The film’s budget would be equivalent to $365 million today, but the film actually performed decently at the box office, hitting No. 1 and making $57.8 million domestically ($480 million today.) The film also won four Oscars.
As expected, GREEN DAY, FALL OUT BOY, and WEEZER announced a joint tour yesterday . . . and as an added bonus, they also revealed that they ALL have new music on the way. Here’s the rundown:
1. Green Day unleased a song called “Father of All . . .“, which is the lead track off an album of the same name. It comes out on February 7th.
2. Weezer released a music video for their new single “The End of the Game” from their next album “Van Weezer”. It won’t be out until May 15th, but the band says they “might release it sooner” . . . just because.
3. Fall Out Boy put out a new song called “Dear Future Self” featuring Wyclef Jean. It’ll be on their album “Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two”, which will be the first of the three albums to arrive, dropping on November 15th.
The tour is happening NEXT summer, and there are already dates up at HellaMegaTour.com.
Bob Dylan will launch a U.S. fall tour next month. Rolling Stone reports that the trek will kick off on October 11 in Irvine, California, at the UC Irvine Bren Events Center and will wrap up November 21 in Philadelphia at The Met Philadelphia. The run marks the musician’s first North American dates of 2019, following an extensive tour across Europe. Rolling Stone notes that the next chapter of Dylan’s ongoing Bootleg Series has yet to be announced, but a source close to the Dylan camp told the publication earlier this year that it is likely to center on the sessions for 1967’s John Wesley Harding and 1969’s Nashville Skyline.

Who released this cover of “Open Your Eyes” by Lords of the New Church? (AUDIO) . . . David Hasselhoff and God help me, I kinda like it.

It will also come with a lavish booklet with liner notes, rare photos and several of Prince’s hand-written lyrics. There will also be 4LP and 2CD versions that include the original album, and the promo mixes and B-sides, all with 2019 remaster. Both versions are set for release on November 29, 2019, via Rhino/Warner Records.
This looks really good. Check out a trailer for the MICHAEL HUTCHENCE documentary, “Mystify”. He was the singer for INXS until his suicide death back in 1997. To read up on his final night. I cannot wait to see this. (Yates claimed that Hutchence’s death may have resulted from autoerotic asphyxiation; this claim contradicted her previous statements to police investigators and the coroner.) Looks like it will be released in the US in October.
There’s a new clothing line called “Kurt Was Here,” featuring T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies covered in KURT COBAIN’s old sketches, paintings, and handwritten notes. And if you think that’s gross and exploitive, you should know it’s being “curated” by Kurt’s daughter FRANCES BEAN COBAIN. Also, a portion of the sales goes to the Jed Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention among teens and young adults. Cobain took his life 25 years ago, in April of 1994. Check it out at KurtCobainShop.com.
Breaking Benjamin’s hit single “The Diary Of Jane,” from 2006’s Phobia album, was officially certified triple platinum for sales of three million copies in the U.S. on September 5th by the Recording Industry Association of America. It was previously certified double platinum in November of 2015. “The Diary Of Jane” remains one of Breaking Benjamin’s biggest hits and the band’s most successful single in terms of sales.
Motley Crue, almost named Christmas, look it up, will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its 1989 album Dr. Feelgood by reissuing the disc on November 29th. The anniversary edition will feature the original album along with studio demos. The deluxe edition will include the LP on “coke bottle green” vinyl, CD, three seven-inch picture discs, a doctor’s bag, a prescription notepad, a deck of playing cards, a pair of drumstick pens, pin badges and guitar picks.
Is September too early for Christmas music? How about if it’s METAL? Judas Priest singer Rob Halford has a new Christmas album coming out next month called “Celestial”.

Dakota Hudson gets the start for the Cardinals.
A big game for the U.S. men’s national team and for the city of St. Louis as two local stars were in the starting lineup on Tuesday. Team captain and centerback, Tim Ream and 19-year-old Josh Sargent, both St. Dominic High School graduates saw several minutes in the game. Uruguay’s midfielder Brian Rodriguez, making his second appearance for his national team, gave Uruguay the lead in the 50th minute with a bomb in the top right corner to make the game 1-0. But No. 22 USA came back in the 79th minute when the ball was deflected off of Nick Lima and was set up perfectly for Jordan Morris. Morris chested in the ball to make it 1-1 which was the final score of the game. The match at Busch Stadium ensured the U.S. finished the international break on a bit of high note after losing to rivals Mexico 3-0 last week in New Jersey.
A former trainer has accused wide receiver Antonio Brown, newly-acquired by the New England Patriots, of rape, charging that he sexually assaulted her three times. Brown is denying the allegations, and his attorney told AP a countersuit is planned, saying the two had a, quote, “consensual personal relationship.” The Patriots said the NFL told them it will launch an investigation and that the team would have no comment while it takes place. The lawsuit from Taylor, who’s a former gymnast, says she and Brown met through a Fellowship of Christian Athletes group at Central Michigan University, and that Brown contacted her on Facebook in June 2017 and asked her for help in improving his strength and flexibility. She says that Brown sexually assaulted her on separate training trips to Pittsburgh and Florida that same month. Taylor says she cut off ties with Brown after that, but agreed to work with him again after he apologized. She contends that he then raped her in May 2018 at his home in Miami, even though she shouted “no” and “stop.” Brown’s attorney claims the sex was consensual, and that the player believes the lawsuit is a, quote, “money grab.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first MLB team to clinch a playoff spot yesterday with a 7-3 win over the Orioles that guaranteed their seventh consecutive National League West title. But the accomplishment wasn’t much of a surprise, since the Dodgers have been in first place in their division since mid-April.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich broke his right kneecap last night when he fouled a ball off himself, and the reigning National League MVP is now out for the rest of the season as the Brewers are trying to win a wild card spot. Yelich’s injury took place in the first inning of Milwaukee’s 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins
The Patriots traded wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the Jets on Tuesday. New England will reportedly receive a 2021 sixth-round pick in the deal. Thomas signed with the Patriots on Sept. 2 after rookie wideout N’Keal Harry was placed on Injured Reserve. He did not appear in the Patriots’ Week 1 win over the Steelers on Sunday night. New England added to its receiving corps in a big way on Sept. 7 with the signing of former Steelers and Raiders wideout Antonio Brown. The Jets lost to the Bills 17-16 in their season opener on Sunday. Jamison Crowder was New York’s lone receiver with over 40 yards in the defeat at MetLife Stadium. Thomas and the Jets will host the Browns on Monday Night Football in Week 2.
The thoroughbred racing season may be winding to a close at Fairmount Park, but the track couldn’t be more excited about the future of the venue. When Illinois passed new gambling laws back in June, it opened up an entirely new avenue of revenue for Fairmount Park. They said that there are plans to add a casino, a sports book and a great number of increased racing dates. They say they hope to see these changes sometime in the 2020 racing season. As for the casino, Sloane said not to expect something quite as big as the other casinos in the area. They are estimating the renovations to cost somewhere around $50 million dollars.
On Friday, during a high school swim meet in Anchorage, Alaska, a girl won the 100-meter freestyle, only to be disqualified afterward because her suit exposed too much of her buttocks. The DQ is under review, but Lauren Langford, a swim coach at another high school in the area, told The Washington Post that she thinks racism and sexism may have factored into the officials’ decision. “All of these girls are all wearing suits that are cut the same way,” Langford said. “And the only girl who gets disqualified is a mixed-race girl with rounder, curvier features.” Langford added, “It’s called a suit wedgie. And wedgies happen. It’s uncomfortable. No one’s going to walk around that way intentionally.” The disqualified teen was issued the swimsuit by her school and was dressed identically to her teammates, but was the only one cited for a uniform violation.
