    Scott Weiland arrested! Oh wait, no he wasn't. Or was he? HUH??

    This is freakin weird. Police in Beverly Hills were called to a drugstore for a shoplifting report. When they arrived, they arrested a guy for stealing razors, and posession of meth. The man told police he was Scott Weiland. He provided police with all the details that "proved" he was Weiland. They bought it, and threw him in jail. Then, they proudly announced they ARRESTED SCOTT WEILAND! Yeah, the REAL Weiland saw this, then posted a video saying he was NOT arrested, the man in jail is NOT him, and he's currently touring, etc, and NOT in jail! So police were a bit embarassed, and upon a thourogh fingerprint check, etc, they found out it was in fact NOT Scott Weiland, but instead, a 44 year old named Michael Hurley. Whoops! Click HERE for the full story.

    Star Wars 7 photo LEAK!

    As you all may be aware, I am a Star Wars GEEK! I have always been a huge fan, and when they announced Disney was taking over, it took me a while to digest it. I immediately thought it was gonna turn to crap. Who knows! It may! HA! But right now, my thoughts are on the positive side, and early leaked pictures of sets, characters, etc, have kept me positive. Today, I came across another "leaked" photo. And this one is allegedly from a reliable source. It's a helmet, the head if you will, of a Stormtrooper from Star Wars 7. I'ts pretty cool! Check it out for yourself. Click HERE to see it.

    VIDEO: NEW Spongebob movie!!

    Whether you have kids or not, you know Spongebob Squarepants! The loveable sponge from the deep is back in a new 3D movie called "OUT OF WATER" in 2015! I'm not sure how I like this yet. I've watched this trailer a few times, and the whole CGI thing has me on the fence. Although animators have done a good job, it just seems to take away from the cartoon aspect. You be the judge. And I'm sure I'll see ya in the theater when it comes out. Also, check out the cool behind the scenes video of the voices behind the characters!

    Ugh. Bon Jovi is trying to save his ass....

    Last week, I shared with you the story of Bon Jovi fans being pissed at him because there are rumors flying he would move the Bills to CANADA if he buys the team. Ok. He doesn't own the team. Yet. He and his team of fat wallets are trying. Yesterday, Bon Jovi wrote a letter to Bills fans trying to calm them down. Maybe you'll get a different feeling, but when I read this, I felt like it was a hunk of crappy re-arranged words that still don't come right out and say Canada isn't a possibility. Who knows. Seens kinda shady. Click HERE to see what he wrote, and see what you think.
