Childhood Memories Ruined By Movies

With Ouija the film hitting theaters this weekend, we’re reminded of the many things from our childhood that the movies have stolen from us and bastardized in the name of cheap profits. O.K., that was a bit dramatic but you get the idea. While some may not care for the Ouija board, it’s a childhood classic, just like Dr. Seuss books and the Scooby Doo cartoons. Unfortunately, all of those things have served as inspiration for a big screen adaptation with mixed results. The truly sad thing is knowing that some kids today will only know of The Cat In the Hat played by Mike Myers or a computer-animated version of Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. [Shudders]

Jennifer Garner spoke out against sexism in the media this week, sharing her feelings at the Elle Women in Hollywood event. She pointed out how differently her and husband, Ben Affleck are treated by the media. While speaking at the event, Jennifer said she was a little upset that an event just to celebrate women had to exist. E! Reports: “The ‘men in Hollywood’ event is every day – it’s called Hollywood. Fifty-one per cent of the population should not have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part.”

Watch This Bizarre, Meta Musical Story About Shia LaBeouf Starring Shia LaBeouf

by (@sllambe)

Rob Cantor, a bearded singer-songwriter and sometimes celebrity impressionist, has created a viral sensation with his song, “Shia LaBeouf.” First released two years ago as an animated video, “Shia LaBeouf” told the story of a cannibalistic version of the star that has had more bizarre twists and turns in his career than a M. Night Shyamalan film. Two years later, Cantor recorded a live performance for fans’ viewing pleasure. And this stage performance has everything: the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, dancers in papier-mâché LaBeouf head masks, glitter falling from the ceiling, a Children’s Choir singing the words “Shia LaBeouf,” and the actor himself sitting alone in the audience watching it all go down.

In her new memoir, Yes Please, Amy Poehler opens up about her childhood, her divorce from Will Arnett, and her own outstanding female anatomy. The book, which is a mix of personal stories, essays, advice, and plenty of memories from Saturday Night Live, is a hilarious yet tender look at the actress’ journey from the first time she she fell in love with improve (for the record, it was during her fourth grade performance of The Wizard of Oz) to fighting for the survival of Parks and Recreation.
