A couple of birthdays to tell you about this week. Our beloved STAR TREK turned 45 years-old last Thursday… too bad it died 2 years ago on May 8th, 2009.
Another birthday on the radar is Rupert Grint’s! The only reason he really comes up is because of the ridiculous flyer circulating for it. Like many celebrities, Rupert has chosen to celebrate his day of birth right here in Who Asked You? country… Las Vegas, Nevada. The nightclubs here love their flyers and full-page glossy ads in local magazines and newspapers. On the way out of the Zia Record store Dennis frequents, the flyer for Rupert’s birthday caught his eye. And for good reason. Just look at the way it’s laid out; with “Harry Potter” scrolled across the top. The name of a character he didn’t play! And why are they using a shot of a burning Hogwarts? Is that supposed to be the party’s aftermath? The real question here is when do we stop tying these actors to these roles. If Rupert comes back to Vegas for his 40th birthday, are we still gonna put his head inside the Harry Potter castle? By then, crow’s feet won’t be an ingredient in some magic potion.
As we eagerly await the next piece of auditory-art from Dirty Potter, a Twitter follower sent us a link to a ‘dirty’ version of “The Catcher In The Rye” that someone on YouTube whipped up. It certainly has some Dirty Potter-esk elements to it. We play a short snippet. You can hear the entire clip in the Show Links.
There are few things in this world that can bring the entire Who Asked You? Crew to tears. One of those things is on today’s show. TNT, a network we all admire and trust has canceled…….. HAWTHORNE! Just 3 seasons in, ol’ Hawthy saved a lot of patients, but she couldn’t save TNT’s ‘patience’. We discuss the ramifications and our feelings about this cancellation on today’s program.
Here’s something you may not have known… Tim Burton nearly directed a BEETLEJUICE sequel in the early 90′s. The script was nearly in final draft form but everything fell apart at the last minute. Now, 20-some years later, he may just get the chance again. Warner Brothers has made a deal with a couple of writers that will include, among other projects, a sequel for our favorite bio-exorcist. Very little info is available right now. There’s no director, no casting, no script. We can only hope that at the very least, Michael Keaton will reprise his role.
If you were approached in a fast food restaurant parking lot and propositioned to buy an iPad from a couple of questionable looking fellows for a to-good-to-be-true price, would you? A South Carolina woman did. And she was so trusting of the gold-toothed man who handed her a taped-up FedEx box, that she waited until she got home to open it! Needless to say, the tablet she got was made of wood. This and a KickStarter project for a Super Bowl ad round out today’s Breaking News segment and the show.
Quick note: I say at the end that we’ll “see you next week”… this is not true. We’re off next week. We will return however with more new shows beginning Sunday, September 25th LIVE at 8pm/PT as always on ErrorFM.com. See ya then!
