For anyone looking forward to seeing Seth Rogen and James Franco's new film, "The Interview" on Christmas day, it's time to find new plans. That's right, the action-comedy about a journalist and his producer's attempt to take out Kim Jong-un has been shelved indefinitely amid threats from hackers. Needless to say, this move has many people in an uproar, especially Hollywood's elite. Ben Stiller took to Twitter saying, "Really hard to believe this is the response to a threat to freedom of expression here in America." However, others have put a positive spin on the situation. Director and producer Judd Apatow also took to Twitter, saying, "This only guarantees that this movie will be seen by more people on Earth than it would have before." I would have to agree with Apatow on this one; the fact that the movie isn't going to be released just makes me want to see it even more!
Each year, we get treated to tons of new music. And yet, each year, there are some songs that just won't leave us alone. It's not that these songs are bad; we just heard them — a lot. Presented without comment, for your listening pleasure.
#10 - Magic!, "Rude"
The nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced this week, which has left many discussing the biggest snubs. First up is Amy Poehler — the host — who was nixed from the Best Actress in a TV Series category. Also missing from the TV nominees were Mindy Kaling for "The Mindy Project" (despite the fact that this year has been the best yet); Kerry Washington from "Scandal"; "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"; and "The Walking Dead" (which seems to be absent from most award shows all together, despite the fact that it pulls some of the highest numbers on television). As for movies, many were surprised by the lack of nominations for "Unbroken," directed by Angelina Jolie; the Christopher Nolan film "Interstellar"; and Ben Affleck's acting in "Gone Girl" (as the director, female lead, and screenplay all received nods).
I think there are two camps of people that exist: those that love Christmas music, and those who are vehemently against it. I fall into the former camp. The day after Thanksgiving is over, I'm zealous about the holiday music I listen to. I'm a huge fan of the classics and I think it's widely agreed upon that very few new Christmas music is good (although kudos for attempting).
But there are some great modern-day Christmas songs out there! Here are a few of my favorites.
#1 - Mariah Carey, "All I Want for Christmas is You"
As far as I'm concerned, this list could be composed entirely of Mariah Carey's song "All I Want for Christmas is You" and be considered a raging success. This is not only the best modern-day Christmas song, it's probably my favorite Christmas song of all time. And I'm not sorry! I love this song. Bonus points for the video.
Here is what I know about the college bowls: they are happening. They are important to some people. They involve a sport (I am guessing football, but I cannot be certain). And something exciting (?) or, at the very least, noteworthy is happening with them (?) or maybe the schedule (?) or something, which is making people talk about/care about/discuss college bowls.
As you can see, I know next to nothing about these alleged "college bowls" (Note to self: Is there even an "s" on the end of that?). So here are 10 other bowls that are great, and have literally nothing to do with whatever is going on in sports right now.
#1 - Cereal Bowls
Cereal is delicious, and therefore a cereal bowl is what kicks off our list of the best bowls. Plus, today it was announced that French Toast Crunch, a cereal loved by '90s kids everywhere, is coming back!
