beaches2

 

(PCM) Lifetime has jumped on the reboot boat. The channel has announced that they will be remaking the movie, Beaches. The movie was released in 1988, and was a smash hit for audiences. This will be Lifetimes first attempt at making a musical adaption. The movie starred Bette Midler, Barbara Hershey, and Mayim Bialik among others. The movie was directed by award winning director Garry Marshall.

It was also announced that actress Idina Mezel will be playing the part of Cecilia Carol “C.C.” Bloom, who was portrayed by Bette Midler in the 1988 film adaption of author, Rainer Dart’s novel of the same name. Idina should have no problem filling in role that Midler once played.

Idina has spent her time climbing up the Hollywood ladder with all sorts of roles. The singer/actress first burst onto the scene in 1996, portraying Maureen Johnson in the Broadway musical Rent, for which she won a Tony award. Idina went onto portray other characters throughout her career, including the voice of Queen Elsa in the Disney smash hit Frozen.

Lifetime will be remaking the cult classic film. The film follows a privileged debutante, and a cynical struggling entertainer (Idina) share a turbulent, but strong childhood friendship over the years. Audiences will get new renditions of two songs that were smash hits in the movie first sung by Midler. We will get too hear Idina’s take on “The Glory of Love” and the iconic, Wind Beneath My Wings.

The film will hopefully bring a whole new era of fans to the movie. Lifetime is hoping to jump on the musical television market that has worked for Fox and ABC. Production for the film has been scheduled for mid-August. A release date for the film has not yet been announced, but get your tissues and singing voices ready, because this will be an event worth catching.

Israeli Artist Submerges A Black Dress In The Dead Sea And Photographs It After Two Months! Results Are Stunning!

(PCM) An Israeli artist by the name of Sigalit Landau came up with an incredibly unique idea for an art project. She decided to submerge a vintage black dress in the Dead Sea for a period of two months and then photograph the results when it emerged. The result is a stunning, glittering salt encrusted gown that is currently on display until September 3 at London’s Marlborough Contemporary art museum.

The project is titled “Salt Bride” and is inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play follows the story of a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover. Landau’s gown is a replica of the one that was worn in the dramatic production done in the 1920’s.

During the two months that the dress was emerged Landau checked on the gown several times to check on the salt crystallization process and photographed the entire process for start to finish. The end result is amazing and the perfect way to blend both art and nature together to create a truly one-of-a-kind creation.

Why You Should Not Swim Naked Where People Are Fishing!

nude-beach

(PCM) A German nudist learned the hard way just why you should never go swimming in a lake where people are also fishing. Recently, at a lake in Augsberg, Germany a fly fisher caught a little more than he bargained for when he cast his line out in hopes of reeling in a fish. The fisherman initially believed that he had hooked an eel or a snake, but quickly realized what was actually on his line was a man’s penis.

Herbert Fendt, is a nudist who was enjoying a day on the lake, which happens to be a popular spot for both nude enthusiasts and fishermen, when he felt something a bit odd underneath the water. At first he believed he was trapped among some underwater plant, however upon further inspection he was horrified to see that a fishing hook had pierced straight through his “member”.

Fendt panicked and yelled out to the fisherman to be sure not to reel in the “catch”. Fendt was able to swim back towards the shore and then make his way to the hospital with the hook still firmly planted within his penis.  Fendt claims the doctor at the hospital could not resist a slight smirk, but the best part is that the fisherman was blaming Fendt for the incident and outright refused to apologize.

Fednt says “The fisherman told me it is not an official bathing lake and he has the right to fish at the spot, which is marked by some signs. I tried to explain to him that he should take into account the many swimmers who use the lake, and that I am unaware of any official prohibition to swim here but he did not care.”

This of course led to quite a bit of controversy and the president of the local fishing association eventually had to step in. She said “We fishermen can perfectly understand the situation. We all had at times a fishing hook pierced through one of our fingers, so we can imagine the incident was quite painful. Of course, fishermen should pay attention to bathers, but as the lake is an official fishing lake, swimming is at own risk.”

Guess the fisherman can chalk this one up to quite a memorable catch, but definitely one that will not end up on the grill or mounted on the wall, at least we hope!

Dog Elected Mayor Of Town,Again!!!

Duke-the-mayor-ps

 

It’s that dreaded time of year again. A time when our televisions, and everything around us seems to be consumed with political ads. That’s right folks it’s that time of year  again, when we have to hear all about how this person is going to change this thing or that thing. And how the other guy or gal did this or that. Following all that rhetoric can be very overwhelming and misleading to a lot of people.

Politics can be a very wearisome game. A game full of lies and half-truth’s. Politician’s seem to spend more time making promises, then they do fixing the issues. That is one of the reason’s American politics is laughed at by other countries around the world. Politics has become more of an entertainment art then it has been on solving major issues. Well the fine people of Cormorant, Minnesota have solved the problem. The town has elected a dog for mayor. That’s right a dog

Duke may very well be the most popular politician in recent history. This will be Duke’s third term as mayor of Cormorant. How can a dog be elected mayor? Well everyone loves dogs and they can’t tell a lie, because they can’t talk.

“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” David Rick, Dukes owner told a local affiliate of ABC News.

The voting was held over the weekend, the 9-year-old Great Pyrenees won his third consecutive term as mayor of mayor of the town of Cormorant, Minnesota. The voting took place at the annual “Cormorant Daze” festival. Voters paid $1 each to cast ballots in the election.

It may seem weird, but surprisingly Duke hasn’t been the first animal to be elected to office. A cow, two other dogs, a cat, and a beer drinking goat. Sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction.

Connecticut Dry Town Sells It’s First Drink In 81 Years!

Bridgewater

(PCM) For the past 81 years the town of Bridgewater, Connecticut has been a dry town, meaning there was a law prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages.  It was the last of the dry towns in the state, however that all changed when the first ever cup of beer was sold in Bridgewater during a recent county fair.

Bridgewater resident and volunteer firefighter Jim Lillis took the first sip of beer before passing the cup to other firefighters and fair volunteers who gathered for the ceremonial sale and to share in the tasting.

Residents approved alcoh ol sales in the town back in 2014 and it is surprising that it has taken them this long to finally sell a single cup of booze. The last time alcohol was reportedly purchased in Bridgewater was back in 1935. Restaurant developers were looking into the area for proposed eateries in the town, which only has about 1,700 residents, on the condition that they could serve alcohol. Thus far no restaurants have yet to open!

Snorlax1

(PCM) It is no secret that Pokemon Go is all the rage and players will stop at nothing to collect all of the games adorable little creatures, even mobbing a capital city if necessary.

A clip has recently surfaced online that allegedly shows literally thousands of Taiwanese Pokemon Go players in a mad dash in the city’s Xinbeitou district on a hunt to catch an elusive Snorlax that has popped in the region. The Snorlax is relatively rare in the Pokemon universe so naturally everyone began to mob the area.

Watching the video is definitely surreal as the people are behaving in nearly the same way they would during some sort of terrorist attack or alien invasion.  Chinese news agencies reveal that the Xinbeitou area has become a daily spot for thousands of players looking to catch the particularly exotic Pokemon that appear to populate the surrounding areas. It has gotten so bad that at times police reinforcements need to be brought in to control the hordes of people overcrowding the area.

While Pokemon Go is a wonderful way to keep individuals active and social, it is creating a lot of chaos around the world as well! There have been reports in a slew of major cities about game players putting themselves and others in dangerous situations while trying to catch Pokemon. Remember to play safe everyone and obey all posted rules and regulations!
