Tweet This is sad news for any fan of the shows Welcome Back Kotter and Cagney and Lacey: veteran actor Robert Hegyes passed away at the age of 60, and due to an apparent heart attack. He first hit the American Zeitgeist with his character Juan Luis Pedro Phillipo de Huevos Epstein, a Puerto Rican-Jew, on the show. What I liked about Welcome Back Kotter is it tried to represent the then growing urban racial “melting pot” as diversity was called then, in an honest and funny way. Welcome Back Kotter ran from 1974...

Tweet  Well four days ago I had this music in a dream then in my head I could not figure out how it got there. It was sci-fi like and could either be in a horror movie or a sci-fi flim. Then I saw the second Star Trek trailer, and it was that music. I kid you not. The second Star Trek trailer reveals a movie that will be a sure-fire hit. J.J. Abrams, who directed the movie and co-produced it, and his staff aimed for a mix of realism and Star Trek and hit it right on the money. I do hope we can see William Shatner in it,...

Tweet ranae, originally uploaded by reallajoie. Verne Troyer and Ranae Shrider apparently decided that his portrail of “Mini Me” in the Austin Powers’ movies wasn’t doing a thing for his “Q” celebrity rating, so they made a sex tape. Yes, “Mini Me” is in a sex tape. Think about it — or don’t think about it — “Mini Me”. He and his now ex-girlfriend. What’s the point? Well, whatever the case, I’m not linking to TMZ for that crap. But...

Tweet Ok, so I’m flipping channels and up comes the start of a program which features this shaved-headed, bespectacled man sitting next to a rather attractive , yet plain-looking woman. They’re listening to a rather boring school PTA meeting presentation when we suddenly see the man slowly place his hand under the table and run it up the skirt of the woman. She takes his hand and places it away from her — for a second. Then she takes it and moves it slowly up her skirt. Just when it seems the hand will meet...

The site is set to launch in the Fall around October and will focus on professional content and not take on YouTube directly as a viral video destination. The site raised $100 million in financing from Providence Equity Partners. Hulu videos will be played in their own embeddable branded player....
