What People Are Talking About

Apparently Kid

We live in a day and age where anyone can find 15 minutes of fame, and five-year-old Noah Ritter has already found his. Young Noah made waves a few weeks ago when he appeared on a live news broadcast to talk about his experience at the local fair. Apparently, he had a great time. Apparently, it was funny enough to score him a visit to "The Ellen Show." Apparently, he was given free VIP tickets to a Walking With Dinosaurs live show. Apparently, he's one lucky kid.

NFL Returns

Yesterday was kind of a big deal for football fans. It officially moved us from That Time Of The Year That's Dark and Sad to That Time Of The Year When Everything Is Right In The World (Because Football). Last night, the Seahawks beat the Packers during the first game of this year's NFL season. And it's gonna be a good one. The return of the NFL season means is great because of Fantasy Football and tailgating and these 48 other reasons (which you should totally read through). Here's to hoping this season provides plenty of fodder for a new NFL Bad Lip Reading video, because that's my go-to thing when the topic of football comes out and I really could use a video that's more recent than January 2014.

The Emmys 2014

On Monday, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles, and there were plenty of highlights (and low-lights) from the show. There has been a collective "eh" over Seth Meyer's performance as host, which is pretty much what is said about anyone hosting award shows, so good job Seth? "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" continued their reigns on the Emmys, combining for eight awards on the night. The highlight of the night for me, as a "Billy on the Street" fan, was Billy Eichner hitting the street with Meyers asking unsuspecting people about the Emmys (video to the left).

Breaking Bad

"Breaking Bad" returned to public consciousness this week (as if it ever left) when its stars, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, were featured in a pre-Emmys skit with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The two play the skeevy owners of a pawn shop, featured on a reality show, that happened to get a visit from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who portrayed an exaggerated version of herself. It was a cute skit meant to promote the Emmys, which take place on Monday. On top of that, Aaron Paul also announced a scavenger hunt for "Breaking Bad" fans to honor the show's last time being eligible for an Emmy. The scavenger hunt includes a chance to find things like scripts, posters, dolls, and art from the show. (Please Note: Video has mild cussing.)

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been on Facebook recently, there's no doubt in my mind that you've seen at least one video of a friend, acquaintance, or otherwise, dousing his or herself with a bucket of ice water, before promptly calling out some of their friends to do the same. It's all in an attempt to raise awareness and donations for ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gerig's Disease. The premise: those are tagged are asked to donate a sum of money (typically, $100) to ALS or film themselves pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on themselves. In most cases, people have opted to do both. Even celebrities and public figures have gotten in the challenge, including Justin Timberlake (video above), Mark Zuckerberg, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy," and Conan O'Brien. According to the ALS website, these donations have helped raise more than $3 million in additional donations for this time period, which is pretty awesome.
