As many know, we lost Chris Cornell to suicide weeks ago. Well, just yesterday his daughter along with One Republican frontman Ryan Tedder gave a very touching performance as a tribute to her father.

Moving on….

Karate Kid Continues….

The Karate Kid rivalry between Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence is alive and well — and will now feature a new generation. Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube were all bidding for the series. Mainly it’s a story of Daniel is now raising a family and struggling with the loss of his mentor and best friend Miagi and Johnny Lawrence opens up a Cobra Kai studio and tries to bring back the past.

What made me say yes after all these years — and I’ve been very protective of the franchise and where Daniel LaRusso sits in the world 30 years later — these guys, Josh, Hayden and Jon had such a smart and fresh angle in. It was relevant today yet had all the pop culture — they had the perfect marriage and angle in bringing it from the Johnny Lawrence [point of view],” Machio said. “It’s not unlike how Creed was a film that was about Apollo Creed’s son but you had Rocky Balboa in it in a certain way. [Cobra Kai] is not the first time anyone looks at a fresh angle from the villain’s point of view, but it was just smart to go that way and to cover these dual lives and do a rivalry series in a smart and funny way, and on top of that infuse the high school world — which is a big part of the show as well — for the new generation.”

One of my all-time favorite movies.

Robert Pattinson Oddness

Has Hollywood gone completely insane and off the rains? Robert is being praised by Peta for refusing to masturbate a dog during the filming of a scene for a movie. What the hell is wrong with people that we’re putting this as content for movies?!?!

Comic-Con Cosplay

Someone asked me what my favorite cosplay that I had seen at San Diego Comic-Con.

Well here you go…

Cubs T-Shirts

Have you seen these rather silly and obvious t-shirts that they’re selling for Cubs games?! I guess they’re selling like mad with all kinds of different varieties.

Lastly….

I read this morning that reliable sources are saying cell phone connectivity is coming to the Apple Watch along with a new form factor. This is huge! No more having to have the watch nearby to do tasks with the phone. You can go for a three-mile run and respond to IMessages and make phone calls from the watch. The big question that remains to be seen is what is the battery life?!
