Welcome back to another one of our series of interviews from this year’s San Diego Comic-con, where we sat with the cast and crew of  DC Animated’s latest film, Batman: The Killing Joke. In this interview, we spoke with Sam Liu, the director of the film and discussed how it was like working with the legendary Bruce Timm.

Sam Liu

Q: Were you a fan of the original [Killing Joke], did it sort of resinate with you in a way?

Sam Liu: I appreciate the story for what it was. I was really young when it came out and I read it. When the people at Warner Bros. weren’t sure if this was an interesting enough, in itself, to tell because it’s almost like a philosophical psychological debate between two legendary nemesis and unless you are a fan, you’re not going to get the impact. And so with them writing a prologue, I kind of feel like, coverage wise as far as the audience is concerned, it helps ease people into their world a little bit. It defines Barbra [Gordon] a little bit more. He get to see her relationship with Batman and what she’s going through. I think the added stuff even though it may be…I’m curious to see how people react to it. It’s hard to please fans but I think it was a smart move and a good move.

Q: How did you approach co-directing with Bruce [Timm]?

Sam Liu: The directing thing is kind of a strange thing because I’m more like a studio director in the sense of an old school kind of way. It’s like I work on multiple projects and the producer is the one that sort of comes with the idea of what they want. And I work with the producer but I build it for the first time. The top of the panel you go through it together and help shape the pre-stuff but I go away and work with a team of people and I show him what I’ve come up with and he basically likes it or doesn’t like it. We’ve worked together for quite some time that I think we know each other pretty well that he trusts me to build it to a certain point, then he just goes in and tweaks it. So again, that’s where the titles come into view because he’s more of the producer but it’s not like we sat together and put it all together. It’s like he came with the idea. As far as this is the blueprint of how we are going to do it and then I go in and build it, basically. And then he kind of comes in later and sort of looks at it, we sort of massage together. Obviously him giving me like ‘I think this works, I don’t think this works or oh, that’s great or that totally sucks’.

Q: So when you say you’ve built it, did you do the storyboarding for this particular project?

Sam Liu: I worked with a team of assorted artists and depending on talent level, I either do a lot of re-boarding or little re-boarding.

Q: Did that work out as intended, when you look back on the project?

Sam Liu: It depends on – it’s like a casting of actors. Some people are better at certain things, there’s some people that are better at fighting, there’s some people better at acting, there’s some people that are really great at drawing. Recently in my crew of people, they are a little bit young and I sort of have to re-do a lot of their work. But again, it comes in circles. There’s times where it’s great and easy, there’s other times where it’s just – I wish I can clone me cause I don’t have enough time.

Q: Working with Bruce Timm, were you a fan of DC Animated beforehand? And how has it influenced you as a director and an artist?

Sam Liu: Bruce was maybe the person that made me like DC. I was never a DC guy when I collected comics, I was always a Marvel guy. Watching ‘Batman: The Animated Series’, that sort of was what made me interested in the DC stuff. – I’m very cerebral so this can go in a long kind of way, which no one would be interested in but it’s stranger because I think when you do stuff, you’re either very cerebral or you’re very intuitive, so I’m very cerebral and Bruce is very intuitive. So in the beginning it was difficult, our communication, because I was trying to quantify why he would do things or why he wouldn’t do things, but he does things not necessarily out of reason. He does things just because it feels a certain way. I’ve worked at Marvel before and different studios and Bruce is really super-talented. When I was working with Marvel, I was using the exact same team as I’m working with now, as far as storyboard artists and stuff like that, but the product that comes out under Bruce is way more polished than Marvel is. I’ve learned a lot from especially with directing and stuff like that. But we fight a little bit, he’s a little more old school, I’m a little bit more new school in certain ways. It’s a collaborative. I’ve seen him evolve as well. He talks about ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ and how slow it is, he can’t even look at it now because he thinks it’s too slow.

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!

Criminals have now started using drones to deliver drugs and other items such as weapons and cell phones to their accomplices that are currently incarcerated. In London, police recently recovered two drone devices that were stuffed with mobile phones and drugs near Pentonville Prison. In fact, the authorities in the area have not set up a special task force called “Operation Airborne”  to catch criminals who are attempting to operate drones and drop contraband off in prison.

Authorities were alerted to the situation when they noticed a man acting suspiciously around the prison and when he was questioned ran away dropping both drugs and mobile phones. The man escaped, however the next day authorities discovered a crashed drone that was flying over top of the Pentonville prison.  The drone was stopped in mid-flight by a police officer and a package containing large amounts of drugs and two mobile phones was recovered from it.

Companies such as Amazon are searching for ways in which to use drones to safely and reliably deliver packages to customers, however the criminals continue to attempt to use the technology for more sinister purposes.

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!

Float-Down

(PCM) The wind is responsible for a bit of an odd invasion that occurred near Ontario, Canada. It seems that 1,500 American’s were accidentally blown into Canadian territory while participating in a floating event that was taking place on the St. Clair River.  The Port Huron Float Down turned into an international incident when the “floaters” from Michigan were blown into Ontario by strong winds in the region.

The authorities in Ontario claim that there is no official organizer for the annual event and it poses no “significant and unusual hazards” given the quick-moving current, large volume of participants, lack of life jackets, and unpredictable weather conditions. It did however take them hours to get the situation sorted out and bus the approximately 1,500 hundred participants back to Michigan. Most were unprepared to be stranded, but made the best of the situation.

The event beagn at Port Huron’s Lighthouse Beach and was supposed to end at Chrysler Beach in Marysville, however after being blown off course things did not end quite as planned. During the floating event participants use anything and everything they can think of to craft floating vessels including wooden planks and even picnic tables. Ontario was left with a lot of clean-up after the event, however there are no hard feelings.

Hopefully the annual float down will have better luck with weather cooperation next year or else Canada may be faced with yet another unexpected raft invasion.

Sadly A Favorite ‘Stranger Things’ Character Will Not Be Making A Return http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/sadly-a-favorite-stranger-things-character-will-not-be-making-a-return/ Mon, 22 Aug 2016 17:20:16 +0000 http://pcm-tv.com/news/?p=26572 Continue reading ]]> ** The following article contain several spoilers from the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” **

Barb-Stranger-Things

(PCM) Fans of the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” will be saddened to learn that one of their beloved characters will sadly not be making a return for season two. For some reason fans absolutely fell in love with the quirky character of Barb, Nancy’s best friend, who tragically lost her life to the monster during her trip to the Upside Down. Fans were holding out hope that somehow Barb would pull through, however new comments made by series creator Matt Duffer to IGN appear to seal Barb’s unfortunate fate.

Even though there was a clear shot of Barb’s corpse seen by Eleven when visiting the Upside Down, there was still some amount of hope that Barb would somehow survive. Matt Duffer says to IGN, “I can’t see it happening. But Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it. It’s not like her parents are like ‘Oh Barb left. She died!’ Season One actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”

May Barb sadly rest in peace, however something tells us that peace and the Upside Down do not go hand in hand! Now we will see Nancy have to wrestle with the guilt of letting her best friend die while getting it on with Steve w/the good hair! Yuck!

Duffer also revealed that we may not have seen the end of evil Dr. Brenner. “I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner…as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me — when the monster jumps on him and we cut away. He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there’s a possibility of seeing him again.”

Ugh! No Barb and more Dr. Brenner, either way we can’t wait to see how season two will play out!

Manbang1

(PCM) The incredibly isolated country of North Korea has finally launched their own streaming service, kind of like Netflix, but with much more propaganda and incredibly limited programming called Manbang. Yes, it is really called Manbang!  The new streaming service will work through a set-top box and feature extremely limited distribution. We seriously can’t get over the name!

While Netflix users are offered a wide variety of Hollywood’s finest films and television series, as well as, some stellar original content, Manbang users will be limited to only being able to watch several documentary films about Kim Jong Un’s leadership and have the ability to view lessons in learning to speak both Russian and English. Doesn’t really seem all that entertaining, but hey, some say it is a step in the right direction for the country.

In addition to watching very limited television, users will be able to read articles on the state’s newspaper Rodong Sinmun and keep abreast of the Korean Central News Agency.

The translation of “Manbang” mean “everywhere or every direction” in Korean, but considering that almost no one in the country has access to internet and that is what is needed to stream content, we can’t really see this service taking off.  Let the Manbang and Chill jokes begin!

(PCM) Talk about an amazing show! Two rock n’ roll juggernauts, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson, absolutely annihilated the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ and we were loving each and every moment. Of Mice and Men were the evenings openers. It was the first time in quite awhile we have seen a near sell-out crowd at the BB&T Pavilion, but with the theatricality and showmanship of these powerhouse bands you seriously couldn’t go wrong.

MM1

Throughout this tour Marilyn Manson has been making a lot of headlines with many claiming that he was incredibly inebriated during his performances in various cities. Stories were told about him falling off the stage, busting up sound equipment and heckling the crowd, however we felt his performance in Camden, NJ was one of the best we’ve seen from him in recent years.

He looked and sounded fantastic. Maybe he was in a good mood that evening, but either way he was sounded better than he has in years and it was refreshing. We are always a little biased, being ridiculously huge Manson fans, but we can certainly admit when an artist has not performed to their best standards. This was definitely not the case with Manson’s Camden performance as he exceeded our expectations by a landslide.

MM2

Entering a darkened stage, Manson appeared from within a cloud of fog tossing bags of Manson dollars which were emblazoned with his face and a “666” while covering the crowd in red and blue paint powder. Manson and the band blasted through some of their major hits including “Angel with the Scabbed Wings”, “No Reflection”, “mOBSCENE” and “The Dope Show”.  We were thrilled to see that Manson’s stage theatrics were as strong as ever, as he once again brought out the pulpit and burning Bible for “Antichrist Superstar” before leaping down into the pit to perform “The Beautiful People” up close and personal with the fans.

Slipknot2

As the time neared for Slipknot to grace the stage, anticipation was building to an all time high within the building. Once the band entered the stage, they were firing from all cylinders from beginning to end. Talk about an intense performance!  Slipknot always gives their all to each and every performance and their show is absolutely electrifying.  Despite the fact that Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor recently underwent spinal surgery, he showed absolutely no signs of slowing down for even a moment. The dedication to the art from the members of this band is absolutely awe-inspiring.

Slipknot3

The band plowed through their extensive catalog of hits putting together the perfect set list which combined both old and new material. We can’t even imagine how hard it is for a band like Slipknot to craft a set list for the tour, as they have such a plethora of material from which to pull. The band’s latest album “.5: The Gray Chapter” has been a huge success for the band and we were thrilled to hear songs such as “The Devil and I” and “The Negative One” included in the evenings performance.

Slipknot4

Slipknot never ceases to thrill in the live environment and their Camden performance was stellar as always!  This touring package certainly provided a ton of bang for your buck and is certainly worth checking out!

It is the incredibly tongue-in-cheek posting by 28-year old Samantha Wagg that has caused her Ebay list for a size 6 Art Deco wedding gown to go viral. She goes into great detail about her pending divorce from her “cheating scumbag of a husband”.

Wagg is accepting emails from people who have questions about the dress and “the skank that my husband ran off with”, she also hilariously warns buyers that they should be sure to dry clean the dress before wearing to get rid of the “stench of betrayal”.

Wow! Definitely would make us rethink purchasing this one!

Wagg had made an initial posting in regards to the dress however it wasn’t getting any attention. Her brother suggested making it funny in hopes of going viral and the results have been astonishing.

Wagg says her parents paid around $2,600 for the dress back in 2014, however her incredibly comedic bid has raised the price upwards of over $86,000!  Wagg will not reveal any more details about her divorce and claims that she has been approached to appear on several U.K. reality television series, which she is seriously considering.

Wagg says she is humbled by outpouring of love and support from people all over the world and that she has managed to forgive her ex-husband for his mistake and wishes him nothing but the best (without her!) for the rest of his life. She goes on to say “I am very happy now, so I hope he is too.”

(PCM) The underground art movement INDECLINE recently erected statues depicting a overly exaggerated and severely poor endowed naked Donald Trump in five U.S. cities, as part of their “Emperor Has No Balls” art campaign.

The statues were designed by an artist named Joshua “Ginger” Monroe for INDECLINE, which is an anonymous art collective.  The statues were discovered in the early morning hours in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Before they were removed, as they were placed without proper authorization, people were already flocking to see/take selfies with the naked Trump likeness.

The statues, which were created in an exaggerated likeness of the Republican presidential nominee, also featured a certain part of the male anatomy to be minuscule with a lack of testicles. In a statement released to the BBC, INDECLINE says, “It is through these sculptures that we leave behind the physical and metaphorical embodiment of the ghastly soul of one of America’s most infamous and reviled politicians. ”

INDECLINE went on to tell the Washington Post “Like it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment. Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues.”

All of the statues have now been removed, however New York got a slight dig in on Trump with a press release about the incident saying “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small”.   Ouch!

The newest film adaption of Stephen King’s IT, is picking up more steam with the release of our first look at the new Pennywise. The image can give us a queasy feeling when you look into the eyes of Pennywise the dancing clown. Made famous by the words of Mr. Stephen King in the masterpiece IT. Mr. King’s novel from 1986.

But the evil Pennywise couldn’t just rest in the words of a book. The first film adaption of IT brought Pennywise to our TV screens in 1990. Pennywise was first portrayed masterfully by Tim Curry. The actor brought a heightened eeriness too Pennywise that still scares audiences to this very day. There’s something very odd about a middle aged man dressed up as a clown preying on little kids. IT is something that feeds on our fears, and if you were a kid growing up, then you know that their can be many fears.

Bill Skarsgard will be playing the new Pennywise, the ageless creature that feeds on the fears of kids. Skarsgard who is only 26 has some very big clown shoes to fill. Following a performance such as Curry’s has to be very hard thing to think about tackling, but I believe fans are ready for a new Pennywise. A new film adaption has been off and on for years. With the images that are showing Skarsgard in full Pennywise décor it gives fans hope for the new film.

The production team relied on Janie Bryant (Deadwood, Mad Men) for crafting the new design of the Pennywise outfit. The outfit draws from many eras of the past- among them Renaissance, Medieval, Elizabethan, and Victorian eras. “It’s a different technique than what the Elizabethans would do. It’s more organic, it’s more sheer. It has a whimsical, floppy quality to it. It’s not a direct translation of a ruff or a whisk, which were two of the collars popular during the Elizabethan period. For Pennywise, there’s no need to stay faithful to any era’s fashions. He is a manifestation of what an immortal, supernatural being thought of as a clown, amalgamating various styles it finds appealing. …Or maybe he’s just thinking of a toy that once belonged to a child he devoured.” Bryant told Entertainment Weekly, about how she went about creating the newer up to date Pennywise.

The newest adaption of Stephen King’s IT is scheduled to hit theaters September 8th 2017. The film will be directed by Andy Muscietti (Mama) and looks to be a much darker film adaption then what we first saw in 1990. Only time will tell, but keep you’re lights on be aware that Pennywise could be out there.

(PCM) Who would have thought that by simply changing a song from major key to minor key could have such a profound impact on it’s lyrical interpretation. YouTube star Chase Holfelder, who is known for creating viral videos changing popular songs to minor key version, has taken on “Kiss The Girl” from the Disney film “The Little Mermaid” and it sounds even creepier than the original.

Holfelder first went viral with his minor key version of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take” proving once and for all that it is indeed a stalker anthem.

During this year’s San Diego Comic-con, we had the chance to sit down with some of the people responsible for bringing The Killing Joke to the screen. One of those responsible for the animated adaptation of the controversial graphic novel was none other than Bruce Timm. Bruce Timm is known for his work on Batman: The Animated Series, an animated series that changed the animated world for the better. In this interview, Timm explains the need for more Barbra Gordon in the animated adaptation, what he did not like about the graphic novel and why he originally didn’t want to do this project.

Bruce Timm

Q: It took a long time to get this one off the ground, what slowed this project down and how did it happen now?

Bruce Timm: Our first iteration of the movie was (I didn’t even know exactly what year, Brian [Azzarello] seems to think it was 2007), whatever year ‘The Watchmen’ came out, that’s the jest of it. When we first started talking about doing it, Brian wrote the script, we let the home video people know that this is kind of a special case, a famous comic, it’s a very notorious comic, if we do it is there a chance that it might be R-rated, are they going to be okay with that? The home video people said yes, reluctantly we are okay with that. Later that year, the ‘Watchmen‘ movie came out and kind of under performed and everyone kind of took a second look at it and thought ‘well maybe this is not the time to do an R-rated superhero movie.’ So we put it on the shelf. A couple of years later we revisited it, home video people said ‘yeah, let’s do it this time, go.’ We started designing it, storyboarding it and then the shooting in Aurora happened, which was a horrible tragedy. And everyone looked at it and said ‘Okay…Batman and gun violence is kind of hitting to close to home right now. This is not the time.’ So we shelved it again. And both times I kind of – honestly, I sighed in relief ’cause I was dreading doing this movie. So a couple of years later, we said ‘Let’s do ‘The Killing Joke’ again.’ Initially, the comic is so short, it’s not really long enough to make a feature film out of and Brian’s script wasn’t feature length. The home video people said ‘Yeah, we’ll just do it as a short movie and adjust the price point so people don’t feel ripped off.’ But this last time we put it out on the floor, we said you know what, let’s expand it to feature film length and we’ll use that screen time to kind of fix one of the things about the comic that’s kind of always bothered me, in that Barbra [Gordon] is kind of just a victim. She’s basically there to be wounded so that Commissioner Gordon and Batman  can be all pissed off and swear revenge. Not that this completely mitigates that but to me it made the movie more palatable to spend more time with Barbra in the story before ‘The Killing Joke’ happens.

Q: You mentioned the fact that it’s a little bit more of a mature story, how do you feel that fits in as far as fleshing out what comics can do that are going to be at different levels for all people, different styles of adaptation?

Bruce Timm: I’m kind of at two minds about it. I felt a little weird when we got the r rating and then the home video people said ‘Okay let’s do it’, on one hand it was like okay cool, we kind of crossed that threshold, the other part of me was kind of like oh, man that’s kind of sad, I kind of finally made a Batman movie that little kids should not see. But in a way it’s kind of okay because they do have alternatives, there are other things that are more age appropriate Batman in the comics, the movies , cartoons, tv shows, the toys but it did feel a bit weird.

Age of the Nerd: As far as adding more Barbra Gordon to the story, how tough was that to add this bigger layer onto something that everybody read and grew up with?

Bruce Timm: Well what’s interesting about it is that knowing that would be a possibly issue for certain people, we designed the movie in such a way that if you really are only interested in seeing ‘The Killing Joke’. if you’re really that much of a purest, the movie is designed in such a way that you can go to chapter five and hit play and you’ll skip the entire first half of the movie, just watch ‘The Killing Joke’ part and you’re good. It’s a clear break. It’s not completely integrated, it’s almost like literally two different movies sandwiched together, so having said that, I hope people do watch the first part of it because I’m very proud of it, I really enjoy the first half of the movie, weirdly enough, almost as much as that I enjoy the second half of the movie. I think Tara [Strong] is great in it, I think Kevin [Conroy] is awesome in it and Brian wrote a really great script. I’m very proud of it, so we will see.

Q: Were Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill always in the cards for this movie?

Bruce Timm: Well Mark has very publicly said many times that he would only come back and play the Joker if it was ‘The Killing Joke’ and I think that was just his way in sending a message to us that if we would ever do ‘The Killing Joke’ that we would be in a lot of trouble if we didn’t hire him. So…mission accomplished, Mark! It was great. He would obviously be our first choice anyways. Him having said that, chances are if we offered him that part, he would probably say yes. Once he was signed on, it was like well it would be really weird if we have him as Joker if we didn’t have Kevin as Batman, so that made that an easy sell. Then it was like okay, who’s going to play Batgirl? I guess it better be Tara Strong then shouldn’t it? So everything just kind of fell into place. I’m always delighted anytime I can work with any of those guys. Kevin is always my number one choice for any Batman project.

Q: At the core of it, why did you pick out this story? Is there something that particularly about the story that drew you in?

Bruce Timm: I have not always wanted to do it. I have always kind of not wanted to do it. I admire the comic enormously, I respect it. I don’t really loved it, I never loved it. It’s not my favorite Alan Moore comic. I think Brian Bolland’s artwork is phenomenal, that to me, still holds up. There’s even things that Alan wrote in the story that I think are amazing as well but there are certain things about it that have always just rubbed me the wrong way for weirdly personal reasons, specifically the way that Batgirl is treated. I think even Alan Moore himself said that he kind of regrets those aspects of ‘The Killing Joke’. But when it came down to doing it, it was just kind of like well, I could say no and somebody else would do it. That would probably be okay but at the same time, it’s just kind of a challenge. It’s kind of like can I take this mature material that I don’t love but can I turn it into a movie that I love without putting my own stamp on it and that was my own personal challenge. You guys would be the judge if I pulled it off.

(PCM) A judge has ordered that 49-year old, Randy Riddle, be banned from ordering pizza delivery after a serious of prank calls made by him caused local pizza businesses to lose nearly $700 in revenue. Riddle was arrested and charged with multiple counts of theft, as well as, making obscene and harassing phone calls.

After his arrest, Riddle was released on bail, however one of the judges conditions for his release was that he refrain from calling any pizza delivery establishments. A warrant affidavit quoted by TCPalm.com says “Defendant shall refrain from calling any pizza establishment and/or making any harassing calls or his bond shall be revoked”.

The local authorities claim that Riddle called several pizza delivery establishments and used multiple fake names and phone numbers. He would order a bunch of food and then have delivery drivers sent out to vacant properties or non-existent addresses to deliver food which was never paid for. After awhile this kind of situation adds up to major loss for the pizza shops.

This guy must have had some kind of terrible pizza delivery experience, either that or he just gets off on other people’s misfortune. He would also call the various restaurants just to complain about the service or the food. This is not Riddle’s first run-in with the law as he was previously convicted about eight years ago of making harassing phone calls when he lived in another part of Florida.

There Is An App That Lets You Purchase Restaurant Leftovers For A Fraction Of The Price! http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/there-is-an-app-that-lets-you-purchase-restaurant-leftovers-for-a-fraction-of-the-price/ Thu, 18 Aug 2016 13:13:56 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32887 Peachy-Keens-App

(PCM) What a genius idea! There is an app in the UK called “Too Good To Go” that allows people to purchase leftover food from various cafes and fancy dining establishments for a fraction of the price it would normally cost to dine. On average a “Too Good To Go” meal could equal out to about two British pounds which is the approximate equivalent to $2.60 in U.S. currency.

How do we not have this here in the States already?

It is a fantastic way to avoid having all of that perfectly good food go to waste. Seriously, why not make a little money off it and feed some hungry people rather than have it do nothing but rot in a garbage can.… Full Story

How do we not have this here in the States already?

It is a fantastic way to avoid having all of that perfectly good food go to waste. Seriously, why not make a little money off it and feed some hungry people rather than have it do nothing but rot in a garbage can. Co-founder of “Too Good To Go” James Crummie says “Food waste just seems like one of the dumbest problems we have in this world. The restaurant industry is wasting about 600,000 tons of food each year, and in the U.K. alone there are one million people on emergency food parcels from food banks. Why do we have these two massive social issues that are completely connected, yet there is not much going on to address them?” He makes a completely valid point. One in six U.S. households go hungry, while restaurants throw away 40% of their food each and every day.

How is works is, users can pick up their meals an hour before closing time at the restaurant of their choosing. Ordering through the app is simply like waiting until the last minute to grab takeout before heading home to Netflix and Chill! Here’s to hoping that we can get something like this started up in the States sometime soon, as we think it is an utterly fantastic idea and a perfect way to be environmentally conscious and cut down on the massive problem of food waste.

It seems that teens in the tiny Swedish town of Insjön were out playing Pokemon Go! when their were viciously attacked with a green laser beam by a couple who were wearing latex pig masks while fornicating next to a waterwheel. You know, just a typical Saturday night!

The first paragraph of the article reads “Tiny Insjön in central Sweden isn’t known for pig mask-wearing couples shooting lasers at Pokémon hunters before having sex by a waterwheel. But that could be about to change.” The article goes on to detail the rest of the bizarre situation saying that one of the Pokemon playing teens was hit in the face with a green laser beam that pig-mask wearing, fornicating couple was waving around while screaming.

The teens became afraid for their safety and ran back home. They escaped unharmed. In addition to shaking up the Pokemon teens, the couple also created a bit of a road distraction as they began to publicly fornicate. The article describes the scene by saying “The masked shooters, who also wore T-shirts labeled ‘King’ and ‘Queen’, were next spotted by incredulous motorists as they had sex beside the hamlet’s waterwheel.”

This created quite a traffic jam as motorists pulled off to the side of the road to watch the spectacle. The police were eventually called to the scene however they were far more concerned about the Pokemon laser attack than the public fornication, as such a thing is not technically a crime in some areas of Europe. The police felt the laser could have caused a serious injury if it were pointed directly into someone’s eye.

Thus far the sex pig couple has not yet been identified and do not appear to be facing any serious charges, other than perhaps public humiliation via the internet, however given the circumstances  we somehow doubt they actually care!

People all over the internet are posting images and video of themselves trying out this rather disgusting looking beauty trend and the results are a bit disturbing. Who would have ever thought that coating your teeth in charcoal would have whitening properties, especially considering the fact it turns them a lovely shade of black during the application process. Yuck! Keep in mind that these individuals are using activated charcoal, not the same stuff that you would throw on your backyard grill.

Those who have tried this trend claim that it will make your teeth shades whiter in just a few brushings, however this method has not yet been endorsed by the American Dental Association and they warn those willing to experiment to proceed with caution. Would you be willing to give this one a try?

Super-Mario-Corn-Maze

(PCM) A large farm in upstate New York has created quite an elaborate new corn maze and while corn mazes themselves are pretty awesome, the fact that this one depicts characters from the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise, makes it even better.

We seriously have to check this one out!

The farm located in Newark Valley shared an impressive aerial shot of the maze where you can clearly see the faces of beloved characters such as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad and of course Yoshi. We can’t even imagine the amount of hours it must have taken them to craft something so detailed.

Elaborate corn mazes are nothing new for the Stoughton Farm, as they have been putting together theme mazes since 2005.  Owner Tim Stoughton claims that his wife Deb decides on each year’s theme and picked Super Mario Bros because it is a staple of pop culture and has characters that nearly everyone will immediately recognize.

The farm uses grid patterns to lay out the images and place them down early in the season before the corn is too tall to see over, once the corn grows up around the grid the amazing images/maze paths are created.

Fascinating!

The parakeet named Paco, is an  Alexandrine parakeet, which when bred can sell for upwards of $800 to $1200 dollars.

The zoo has placed a message on Facebook urging anyone with information about Paco’s whereabouts to please step forward, as they would like to see him safely returned. The zoo also released surveillance footage of the man who allegedly bird-napped Paco the parakeet. The zoo stated that the suspect had 24 hours to return the bird before they would be contacting the authorities as they have clear images of his face.

When reviewing the surveillance footage, a family can be seen asking questions about Paco, while at the same time the man can be seen sneaking into his cage and taking him out. The zoo owner feels that the family may have been in on the plan and created a distraction so the man could get in and steal Paco. The zoo feels they probably stole him for breeding purposes.

The zoo owner goes on to say that Paco has a very sociable personality and that is what made him a target for theft five years earlier. The suspect did not get away with the bird that time, as a passerby heard him squeak and contacted the authorities. Parakeets are very sensitive creatures and can become distraught by a sudden change in environment.

We certainly hope that Paco the parakeet will be returned to his home very soon!

Roberts’ number was scrawled into the wall with the following message: “If you want a good shag, call Donna on …”. A boredom and curious Ellis decided to see what would happen and sent Roberts the following text saying “Hi, what are you up to?”.  Roberts, who was very confused, responded to the text with “Who is this?” and then the pair began chatting. They met up in-person a few days later and ended up falling in love.

The couple are now married and have two children. Ellis said he was initially curious if the number belonged to a real human being or not and claims that he and his wife still laugh about the situation to this day. Roberts did eventually change her phone number to be sure that she did not receive any more calls from random strangers. The two live in Brighouse, West Yorks, England and despite it being quite a unique story, the couple are not ready to explain to their children ages 8 and 9 just how mom and dad met. They simply say “He texted me by mistake”.

This one is certainly a unique love story, as we are fairly certain that most love affairs that begin with a number in a gas station bathroom might feature a happy ending, but not necessarily a happy ever after.

The art teacher treated him (and me) like he had a contagious disease, and the administration (my employer, and friend, at the time) threw up her hands, because what can you do, you know? We have to think of the other children.

I cringed when I saw it again this morning — not because of what I said in it, but because this is a problem – a prejudice – that we’ve been battling all his life. In 2011 it was summer camp at the local Lutheran church — nice people, not equipped to handle him.  In 2012 it was the sports camp sponsored by the City of Newark.  Before his diagnosis, it was the school system that dumped him in an “intervention” room (closet) for most of the school day, or suspended him.  Last year it was the new gifted teacher that didn’t want him in her class, even though his test scores are through the roof and rote remedial learning bores him (literally) to tears.  Why should the other gifted children have to listen to my son cry, right, or witness him being removed by a para, or do their work like good boys and girls while my son audits the class because he’s too stressed that day? That’s not fair, is it? We have to think of the other children.

But you know what? No.  No, your child doesn’t need to be sheltered from my child.

My Child’s Meltdown Belongs in Your Classroom

(Summer 2013)  I’m trying to be professional and understanding about things that have happened this week, but as a parent, my heart is a little broken.

When asked to consider the place of children with emotional and behavioral disorders in an educational setting, the first concern of most people seems to be for the benefit of the other children, and the teachers, and the harmony of the group. Which makes sense, right? When you first think about it.

But I ask you to consider this. A generation ago, even less, these same arguments, based on misunderstanding at best, prejudice at worst, kept children with developmental delays and other handicaps from attending school. It was only with activism on the part of parents and child advocates that this attitude was challenged, and changed, resulting in laws that protect the right of ALL children to an inclusive education, in the least restrictive setting, with all possible and reasonable accommodation.

These days, we don’t much dispute the right of a child with physical challenges to take part in the same activities as healthy children. When it comes to children with emotional and behavioral disorders, however, there is still a pervasive prejudice. There is a perception that such children are bad, that their behavior is willful – they are punished, rather than worked with, and they are marginalized.

The truth is, such a child has as much control over his condition as a child with epilepsy, or with Tourettes, or with Autism, or Cerebral Palsy, or with any other host of impairments can control theirs. That is to say, given an opportunity, and a conducive environment, and appropriate supports, they can succeed as well as any child.

The questions I am asked, as a parent of a child with an emotional and behavioral disorder… Why should other children have to suffer when such a child acts out in the classroom?

– Because these people exist together in the world.
– Because discomfort over differences is healed by familiarity, compassion, and understanding.
– Because segregating “normal” children from “abnormal” children when it is not strictly necessary will not prepare either one for living in an inclusive world. It can only further misconceptions and prejudice. It can only distance the special needs child from a sense of belonging and success.

Why should teachers have to interrupt their class to deal with a child who acts out in the classroom?

– Because every child is different. Some have learning disabilities and need help understanding their assignments. Some children have physical challenges and need help maneuvering their world. Some children have language barriers, cultural barriers, problems at home, problems of self-esteem, problems keeping their breakfast down, problems sitting still, problems paying attention, problems with you.
-If you are a teacher, presumably you are so for a reason. Please don’t shy away from something because you don’t understand it.

With the rate at which children in our society are being diagnosed with behavioral and psychiatric disorders, and in the wake of national tragedies that have dragged the state of mental health care into the limelight, I believe this is something that needs to be said. This is a conversation we need to be having. This is a situation that needs to be challenged.

At the very least, it’s something I need to get off my chest.

My Journey To Health, Beauty http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/my-journey-to-health-beauty/ Mon, 15 Aug 2016 01:00:13 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32880 asunriseBeauty is something that is very important in a journey to health.  Actually life itself, at least all human life, cannot be totally fulfilled unless some sort of beauty exists within that life.  You can certainly live but you cannot live well.

In The Bible The Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Christian church in Philippi in this way, “Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy – mediate on these things.”  Let’s think about these words for a moment.… Full Story

asunriseBeauty is something that is very important in a journey to health.  Actually life itself, at least all human life, cannot be totally fulfilled unless some sort of beauty exists within that life.  You can certainly live but you cannot live well.

In The Bible The Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Christian church in Philippi in this way, “Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy – mediate on these things.”  Let’s think about these words for a moment.

First you don’t have to be a Christian to appreciate them.  These words are good advice for anyone.  Second let’s get rid of that word meditate.  To meditate simple means to think about.  To take some time and quietly think about something is meditation.  You don’t have to be a priest or a monk or guru living in a cave, you just have to be a person who takes some time to think about something without interruption.  The last thing I would like to point out is that we know when Paul wrote these words he was in Prison.  And two thousands years ago prison was a lot worse than it is now and yet he encourages people to think well and several times in this letter he talks of rejoicing.

You and I probably have very different ideas of what beauty is.  We were all created with different tastes and ways of thinking.  You might see beauty is a large bowl of steaming broccoli, I, however do not.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder is very true.

I spent some time this morning floating on my back in a pool.  My ears were below water level so I could hear very little but my eyes were open.  The sun was almost up and it’s brightness was on a very tall tree a little away from me.  There was a moderate breeze blowing and I saw the green leaves dance against the aqua blue sky.  It was peaceful, it was gentle and it was beautiful.

Being on the rigorous new diet and limiting sugar has kept me away from desserts.  I am allowed to cheat on occasion and a few weeks back I had the opportunity to have some chocolate.  I hadn’t had any in weeks and the experience was like tasting chocolate for the first time.  It was the best thing I had ever eaten.  Before things like chocolate were ordinary, now they are beautiful.

The work of Leonardo DaVinci, Michelangelo Renoir and Van Gogh and other world renowned painters and sculptures continue to take my breath away, more so as I have gotten older.  I loved the song Vincent long before I saw the beauty in Starry Night, probably Van Gogh’s most famous painting.  In fact I didn’t enjoy paintings much at all until I heard experts discuss it and then I could see what I could not see before.

Music is also a source of great beauty as well as solace for our souls.  In music we can hear tragedy and comedy.  There are symphonies that can bring us to the height of joy and songs that can break out hearts but music and it’s beauty fills a need in us that I don’t think that we ever actually even acknowledge we have.  Music is also something you should learn more about.  People say that they don’t like classical music and they lump many different types of music into that category.  I did this once as well.  But when I learned about it and when I learned what different composers were trying to say I began to see its beauty.

The theory of learning about and experiencing music does not just apply to classical music it applies to today’s popular music as well.  I never liked Hip Hop.  I felt that it disrespected many of my values and was almost impossible to listen to.  And then Lin Manuel Miranda wrote the musical Hamilton and I now have respect for Hip Hop and see its value.  It can be enjoyable and tell a story.  I hope to find more like this.

Novels and poetry are also sources of beauty.  The works of Dickens and Shakespeare can at times bring us both tears and happiness.  The last chapter of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens tells us of the actions of a reformed Scrooge.  I Challenge you to read the chapter.  You know the story but read the chapter and feel the joy that Dickens fills it with.  You see the beauty of a reformed man as well as the magnificence of Christmas day.

Tolkien’s work in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings creates a world that is both ugly and beautiful.  He paints pictures with words that come to life in your mind.  You can see the places he describes and even believe you are there and he awakes a desire to go to these places, such as The Shire, Rivendell and Loth Lorien because he captures your heart.  The beauty of his words is that he draws you into his world and you want to stay.

Imagine if we all began to to spend our free time thinking about and experiencing beauty.  Our minds may be dragged away from depression and our anxious hearts may be calmed for a while.  We may wake up to a new sense of wonder as we look at the world around us.  Our senses may become more acute and our hearts experience more joy.  This is why beauty is so important in a healthy lifestyle.

So what challenge can I give you today?  Go and spend some time thinking about and experiencing what you consider beautiful or lovely or good.  Immerse yourself in a novel or a symphony.  This is not something that you can just do.  You must look or read or taste or hear the beauty you are seeking.  Interact with it and think about it.  You must experience it.  Chase beauty and you will find it almost wherever you go.

Witchcraft Shop Refuses To Sell Wands To Harry Potter Fans http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/witchcraft-shop-refuses-to-sell-wands-to-harry-potter-fans/ Sun, 14 Aug 2016 17:36:02 +0000 http://worldofpopculture.com/?p=9795 Harry-Potter-Wand1

(PCM) Not sure exactly how one witchcraft shop in Great Britain is able to accurately spot a Harry Potter fan, however they claim they can sense one just by the aura and wants no part of them shopping in their store.

Mystical Moments crafts gorgeous handmade wooden wands for witches, warlocks and wizards, however if you are a Harry Potter fan you can forget about it!  The store refuses to sell any wands to fans of the hit book/film franchise written by author J.K. Rowling.

The store owner claims that while Rowling did, indeed, do her research, Harry Potter is for children and has done nothing for his business overall. The store owner told the Telegraph, “I don’t have customers who have been Harry Potterfied. If I had someone come in wanting a wand just because they liked Harry Potter I wouldn’t sell them one, no matter how much money they were offering.”

When used correctly wands can be used as a tool to draw a protective circle around witches to assist with curing various ills and of course make wishes come true. All you truly need is faith in whichever product you choose to have it work wonders for you, except if you are a fan of Harry Potter. In that case, you are totally on your own!

This definitely shows quite a bit of discrimination against Harry Potter fans by Mystical Moments and many fans feel that it is not even legal for a shop to refuse to sell an item to a specific group of people. Do we smell a lawsuit brewing?

A wild craze has been going on. A craze that has taken the world by storm. The craze involves catching Pokemon. You read that correctly. The popular TV show from the 90s has returned in a new format. Got to catch them all, on your phone that is.

You have probably seen or know someone that takes part in these games. The game is called Pokemon Go. The idea is simple: as you travel around you must try and capture all the little monsters that appear within range. The game has become somewhat of a phenomenon. Many people are now hosting Poke Hunting parties. With the success of anything their will always be the detractors. Just a couple days ago Iran became the first country to ban the game. Iran is blaming security concerns on the ban.

Among the wild craze that has been occurring around the country a Pokemon has appeared that people can actually touch.  Someone has put up a statue of the iconic Pokemon, Pikachu, at the center of a broken fountain in a park. Pictures show a defiant looking Pikachu with his arms folded standing on a cement base with a Pokeball on the side. The inscription “#POKEMONUMENT” is also written on the cement.

New Orleans police say they haven’t received any complaints about the statue, and don’t know where it came from and don’t plan to do anything about it.

Pokemon fans and people of all ages have been visiting the park located in the city’s upscale Lower Garden District, posing for photos with family and posting selfies with the statue on social media. Pokemon Go has brought people out of the house and into the world. Strangers are becoming friends, because of this game. Whatever the opinion of the people about this game. The takeaway seems to be very positive.

At San Diego Comic-con 2016, we had the honor to sit down and talk with some of the faces and voices behind the newest DC Animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke. One of those voices we talked to were none other than the man behind the voice of Bruce Wayne and Batman, Kevin Conroy. Take a look at the interview below as Kevin Conroy talks about Batman: The Animated Series, The Killing Joke and how it felt to make Batman laugh for the first time.

20160722_153726_opt

Kevin Conroy

Q: How was it approaching something like this where it’s R-rated?

Kevin Conroy: Well remember the original show that was on Fox was on primetime. It was really geared toward an adult audience to begin with. It was never geared towards kids to begin with. I think that kind of evolved over time with ‘The Adventures of Batman and Robin’ and ‘The Justice League’, ‘Batman: Beyond’, those were intended to be for a younger audience but ‘Batman: The Animated Series”, what made it so wonderful was that it was a primetime show. They were going for an adult audience. Our biggest audience for that show was I think college age. To answer your question, this is a much darker version, a much more adult story but when you approach the character, you’re being true to the character, regardless of the situation he’s in. The situations change, the character doesn’t change. The thing I found about Batman is that the audience is so passionate with this character. They’re so passionate. They know more about him than I do, in terms of his background. If I was ever to be inauthentic or to lie, or to take a shortcut, I would hear about it in about five seconds. They would just tune it out! And I have too much respect for them. I know that I can’t get away with it, I’m not gonna try. So for me, it’s always getting to the character from the inside out. And I know that’s the way Mark [Hamill] approaches the Joker. He always comes at it from the inside out. These are both really complicated twisted characters. Each twist in their own way. Batman is not square-jawed Superman, he is dark and complex and struggling with inner demons, which is why he’s most comfortable in a cave with bats. Joker is equally damaged. They just go in different directions. Sometimes complete opposites end up in the same place, you know what I mean. I often thought that we define each other (Batman and Joker). One wouldn’t exist without the other.

Q: As a longtime animation veteran, what do you think it means to have a more mature type of entry into the field?

Kevin Conroy: As an art form, I think it’s been being done for awhile with shows like ‘Family Guy’, you got a lot of very adult content animation going on. So for this show we do it with Batman, it makes all the sense in the world. There’s a huge adult audience for animation. It’s appropriate that it happened now. I certainly see it when I go to comic-con, ninety percent of people who come to see me are adults, occasionally, there’s some kids. I’m a very adult character.

Age of the Nerd: How important was it to you to comeback and do the voice of Batman for The Killing Joke, especially when you heard that Mark Hamill really wanted to do it? Did you want to do it as much as Mark did?

Kevin Conroy: Oh, absolutely. I would fly across country to be able to work with Mark [Hamill]. I love working with Mark Hamill. He’s like a brother to me. We get together and there’s (?) we both trust each other. I know Mark [Hamill] wants me to be good and I know he knows that I want him to be good. We want the best out of each other – that’s like a wonderful relationship. I mean it’s like a great, great brother that you just trust.

Q: How was it like to have Batman laughing for the first time?

Kevin Conroy: Isn’t that wild?! I’ve never done that before. We’ve never done that sort of thing, like wait a minute…how do I laugh? I’ve never explored that quality to him. Where does that come from?

Q: Can you do it now by any chance?

Kevin Conroy: No! [Laughs] Because it’s not just putting on a laugh. You’ll see when you see it, Mark [Hamill] said it was wild listening to it. It’s interesting.

The Verdict Is In! Science Reveals That Humans Need To ‘Party’ To Survive! http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/the-verdict-is-in-science-reveals-that-humans-need-to-party-to-survive/ Sun, 14 Aug 2016 09:16:50 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32875 Party1

New research by evolutionary psychiatrists claim that our ancient ancestors would gather in large groups and move rhythmically together creating the very first “party” atmosphere.   While it certainly wasn’t a kegger, these gatherings provided ancient groups of people a way to bond and communicate and ultimately survive.

(PCM) Much to the delight of college students everywhere new studies reveal that “partying” is part of our primal instinct as human beings and is fundamental to our growth and development as a way to bond with others and create long-lasting relationships.

New research by evolutionary psychiatrists claim that our ancient ancestors would gather in large groups and move rhythmically together creating the very first “party” atmosphere.   While it certainly wasn’t a kegger, these gatherings provided ancient groups of people a way to bond and communicate and ultimately survive.

It also seems that people who were blessed with good coordination and rhythm may have had an overall evolutionary advantage. Research from a French sociologist by the name of Émile Durkheim claims that individuals feel a certain sense of “electricity” when they are in close contact with others. This “electricity” is then released to those around them. It then becomes a situation with a high degree of emotional excitement within the group.

University of Montreal researcher Paul Carls adds “This impersonal, extra-individual force, which is a core element of religion, transports the individuals into a new, ideal realm, lifts them up outside of themselves, and makes them feel as if they are in contact with an extraordinary energy”

Early parties were generally based upon some sort of religious or spiritual journey, as people would become uplifted being guided by a priest or a shaman and gain a euphoric feeling. This is much the same behavior that we showcase now when we go out to a bar or nightclub and the music from the DJ and the collective mind-set of the environment gives us the same uplifting or euphoric feeling.

The research also shows that by nature we have primordial and instinctive response to follow rhythm and be driven by it! So, go ahead and get your “party” on, it’s only human nature after all!

There are tons of choices such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more. Definitely an oddly unique take on personalized jewelry!

Breast-feeding can create some very intimate moments between a child and a mother, so this is definitely a way to assist with preserving those moments shared between mother and child that can last a lifetime. There are some that feel the idea is a little bit controversial, however just looking at the jewelry designs there’s really no way of knowing that they were created with breast milk without someone actually telling you.

The jewelry is actually created to look like a pearly white stone, which is actually crafted from breast milk preserved in resin. You can also have the resin dyed to a color of your choosing, just in case breast milk white doesn’t happen to be your thing!

Definitely a unique gift idea and a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!

Brendan-Dassey

(PCM) The news is breaking that Brendan Dassey, nephew of Steven Avery, who was convicted of assisting his uncle with the murder of Teresa Halbach has been ordered to be released from prison immediately. The case was the subject of the highly debated Netflix documentary series “Making A Murderer”. Many felt that Dassey was unfairly interrogated by the detectives investigating the case and he was coerced into making a false confession.

A federal judge reviewed the case and reached the decision that Dassey’s constitutional rights were violated during the interrogation by detectives which took place without a lawyer or his parent present. According to TMZ.com, who broke the story,  the judge said authorities exacerbated the problem by assuring Dassey they were on his side. The judge also added, “Dassey’s borderline to below average intellectual ability likely made him more susceptible to coercive pressures than a peer of higher intellect.”

Prosecutors in the state of Wisconsin have a period of 90 days to make a decision as to whether or not they would like to retry Dassey for the murder of Teresa Halbach . A TMZ representative spoke with the Wisconsin Attorney Generals office and they commented that they had not yet reached a decision about whether or not they will refile charges against Dassey and are currently reviewing the judges decision/order for his release.

Do you feel that justice was finally served for Brendan Dassey?  Makes us wonder what is currently going on with Steven Avery’s on-going appeal?  We are sure the Halbach family is not going to be pleased with the judges decision.

Now that the hype machine, both negative and positive, for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is slowly coming to a halt, it is now safe for Ben Affleck to step out of the firing line after surprisingly being chosen for the role of Batman for the DCEU. The finished product of Batman v Superman impressed many as far as Affleck’s take on The Dark Knight. After seeing what seemingly felt like a truck load of footage in preparation for the release of Suicide Squad, the public’s attention has now turned to Jared Leto, who is now the fourth actor to play a live action version of Batman’s arch nemesis the Joker.

Opinions so far appear to be diverse in discussions regarding Leto’s interpretation, whose appearance wouldn’t stray too far in resembling Marilyn Manson’s younger brother. It is a hot topic when it comes to debating who just really is, or was the best actor to undertake the role, so let us dive through and examine each live action version of the character’s profile.

Cesar Romero:

The camp aspect had to start somewhere! And it did when Cesar Romero played the Joker in the 1960’s television show with Adam West undertaking the role of Batman alongside Burt Ward as Robin.

Batman was a show that targeted a very young audience, causing it to omit the character’s more fiendish aspects of his personality that the public later witnessed when the studio decided to make their big screen adaptations. The show, which lasted from 1966-1968, was optimistic in its nature but Romero still found an approach that elevated the character’s strength which resonated with many fans despite the fact that the actor refused to shave off his moustache which is in plain view to viewers even in low picture resolutions. This did not have much of a detrimental effect considering the tone of the show, and Cesar Romero’s representation was a good starting point for future opportunities to come!

Jack Nicholson:

Oscar winning actor, Jack Nicholson had the honour of being the first to play the Joker in a momentous theatrical picture. While Heath Ledger made many new fans with his portrayal 19 years later, the Easy Rider star’s take still retains many fans to this day. The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman gave fans a healthy mixture of camp and a weighty performance that fit the dark, gothic tone of the script. Although it is thought here that Nicholson has been mostly one dimensional in his acting ability throughout his career (there are a couple of exceptions!), The Joker was a great fit in his comfort zone in the way he often played characters in cocksure fashion.

Heath Ledger:

Australian Heath Ledger made his mark in Hollywood history when he was given the opportunity to play the Clown Prince in the second instalment of Christopher Nolan’s realistic but dark perspective on the adventures of The Caped Crusader, that told the origins for the first time in more than average detail.

Ledger won a posthumous Oscar for playing the Joker, who this time came across as nothing short of a deranged lunatic who got his kicks out of killing and destroying anything in his path just because he could! Comic book fans may have been a little disappointed that the character’s trademark laugh and sadistic jokes were kept to a minimum, but perhaps it was a necessary sacrifice to retain the realism and general impression of a major classic movie in the same style of such gangster movies as Heat.

Nolan decided to select the path to not reinvent Joker’s origins, instead going for ambiguity which made the Joker in The Dark Knight nothing short of an enigma. And no, that was not a Riddler pun!

Jared Leto:

With the newly released movie, Suicide Squad, the role of the Joker was up for grabs once again. Jared Leto has been given the opportunity to play the infamous villain that looks set to surely appear in at least a couple of up and coming DC projects. So, how did he fare? As Pierce Brosnan once did for James Bond, it appeared that Leto wanted to approach the character and go for a hybrid version, incorporating past fragments here and there of the different portrayals of the past. Bare in mind that it has recently come to light that there is apparently a sizeable amount of deleted footage that Warner Bros elected to remove from the finished movie, most of which allegedly contains scenes involving the Joker.

It is more difficult to judge this particular portrayal, given that we was only treated to approximately 10 minutes of the character throughout the whole movie, however, people who like nostalgia will probably love Jared Leto’s version.

Trash-Compactor1

(PCM) A Oregon man is lucky to be alive after surviving a nightmare ordeal that ended with him being placed through trash compactor. 23-year old Mendez Perez was sleeping in a dumpster when it was picked up and emptied into a garbage truck during the early morning hours. The men operating the truck did not take notice of Perez sleeping inside the dumpster at the time.

Perez, as well as, several loads of cardboard, went through the garbage trucks trash compactor several time and the fact that he survived the ordeal and was not crushed to death is a true miracle. Perez was able to come out of the incident with only a broken leg and the hospital tells sources he is listed in “good” condition.

The truck driver said they only found out that Perez was trapped in the compactor due to the fact that he began yelling and throwing cardboard out of the back of the truck as it was driving down the highway. Trash compactors are responsible for several deaths each and every year, mostly due to not being operated properly. This may be one of the first incidents of someone who was sleeping in a dumpster accidentally being dropped inside.

Perez is a very lucky man! Let’s hope that after this incident he will rethink his sleeping arrangements or perhaps get himself into some sort of shelter.

The Success Of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/the-success-of-netflixs-stranger-things/ Fri, 12 Aug 2016 11:28:38 +0000 http://pcm-tv.com/news/?p=26569 Continue reading ]]> Stranger-Things1

(PCM) If you are anything like us than you have probably already binged the entire season of the new Netflix series “Stranger Things” and are on the edge of your seat waiting for some kind of announcement in regards to season two. We have so many questions at the end of season one that we almost don’t even know where to begin!

Many are actually baffled by the success of “Stranger Things”, as it has soared in popularity, almost to a level that the streaming network did not expect. In fact, sources claim that “Stranger Things” is more popular than both “Daredevil” and “Making A Murderer”, two of Netflix’s heaviest hitting series.  About 8.2 million people streamed “Stranger Things” with the first 16 days of its’ release and that number is higher than “Jessica Jones”, “House Of Cards” and “Narcos” as well!

And to think that, according to “Stranger Things” co-creator Matt Duffer, the series almost failed to exist. The series was initially rejected by about 15 to 20 networks before it was eventually given a green light by Netflix. We are thrilled that Netflix exists just for this very reason as they are well known for taking risks on several different series which would have been otherwise rejected by traditional television networks.

Despite the fact that season two for “Stranger Things” has not had an official confirmation from Netflix, the comments made by cast and producers during recent events have all most set it in stone.  The series plays with nostalgia in the most wonderful way and all of their references to 80’s pop culture and trends of the era are absolutely spot-on.  We think that is one of the major reasons it has been such a hit with audiences, especially those of us that fall into the 25-55 age demographic. The series is like taking a trip down memory lane for us!

Season one of “Stranger Things” followed the mysterious disappearance of a local boy that unearthed some terrifying secrets about a local top-secret laboratory and a mother’s passion to see her son return home safely. By the end of season one we were left with many unanswered questions that we hope will become resolved if, indeed, “Stranger Things” gets picked up for season two. Some of our top questions for season two can be found below:

**Spoiler Alert**  Questions below contain details to some major plot points of “Stranger Things” season one

  1. What in the world happened to Eleven?  Remember the Snow Ball promise?  Is she alive? (Side note: Will Eleven ever get to taste toasted Eggo Waffles?)
  2. How did Hopper and Joyce make it out of the Upside Down with Will?
  3. Is the Demogorgon really dead?  How about Dr. Brenner?
  4. Will Steve change his hair in season two?
  5. Will Nancy give into her feelings for Jonathan? (You know they belong together)
  6. Can we please bring back Barb? (it’s possible…right?)
  7. What did the government agents tell Hopper in the car at the hospital? What kind of deal did he make with them?
  8. Are we ever going to find out about children 1-10 that may have resided in Hawkins lab?
  9. Is Will Byers going to become the new villain for season two after his slug vomiting incident? Could he have opened the door to birthing a new Demogorgon?
  10. Where were Lucas and Dustin’s parents during all of the events in season one?
  11. Does Hopper know that Eleven is alive and getting the Eggo’s or is it just hope?

We can’t wait to find out more and certainly look forward to any additional information about “Stranger Things” season two!

Experts Predict There Could Be A Huge Champagne Shortage In The Near Future http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/experts-predict-there-could-be-a-huge-champagne-shortage-in-the-near-future/ Fri, 12 Aug 2016 09:48:32 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32856 Champagne1

(PCM) Say it isn’t so! Guess we won’t be breaking out too many bottles of bubbly to toast the end of summer. Experts are now predicting that there could be a huge shortage of champagne in the near future.

According to the experts a late season frost caused a nearly 70% loss of crop for several growers and many also had to endure hail storms late in the season which led to mildew.  Many manufacturers have reserves set aside to deal with situations like this if they should arise, however if they are forced to dip into the reserves it could affect what is left to deal with any environmental setbacks in the future.… Full Story

Crop growers claim that this shortage is the worst they have endured since the 1980’s and this season in particular has been the hardest since 1956. Be sure to choose your celebratory drinking occasions wisely as champagne is not the only drink that has been effect by bad weather conditions and environmental factors this season.

There has been a high demand for scotch with a lack of supply, and also on the non-alcoholic side coffee and cocoa are both facing global supply issues.

(PCM) An upscale fitness center in the country of Georgia (not the U.S. State) is stirring up quite a bit of controversy after posting signs around their center informing women that if they are on their period they are not allowed to swim in the facilities pool. Members of the fitness center are outraged and the center has been receiving quite a bit of backlash from social media users after one guest posted a image of one of the signs online.

The Vake Swimming Pool and Fitness Club has several notices posted up around the building that read “Dear ladies! Do not go in the pool during periods.”  No further explanation was provided on the notices. We are guessing that this club has never heard of a tampon, seriously, how would they even be able to tell if a female guest was menstruating or not?

Female guests of the center are deeply offended by the notices and some are even demanding that they should receive a discount since they will be unable to make use of the facility for five to six days per month. Why should they pay the same price as men, who apparently, are free to use the facility each and every day of the month.

When commenting on the issue, the Vake Swimming Pool and Fitness Center stands by their decision to post the notices as they claim they only added the new rule as a “preventative measure” after their pool was “contaminated” with menstrual blood. This has led to quite a large debate online with some people taking the side of the fitness center and others standing behind the women.

What do you think? Did the fitness center go to far with the notices?

Jared-Leto2

(PCM) One fan is taking their love for Jared Leto and The Joker to a whole new level by threatening to sue Warner Bros. for a lack of Jared Leto screen time in the film “Suicide Squad”. The fan, whose goes by the Reddit screen name BlackPanther2016 claims that the trailers for the film showcased a lot more scenes featuring Leto’s character in the film and that it is “unjust false advertising” that the majority of those scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

It is no secret that “Suicide Squad” has certainly been stirring up quite a bit of debate among both critics and fans as majority of critics have been slamming the film claiming it is sub-par at best with no plot line, choppy editing and a severe lack of character development. On the other hand many fans have been pleased with the film calling it entertaining and a perfect homage to the way a comic book film should be made.

We certainly feel that suing the studio may be taking things a bit too far, but after seeing the film we can certainly agree that having a bit more of our beloved Joker (and Leto) in the film would certainly have not been a bad thing. We just kept wanting more of that particular plot line. We would get a tease of the character and then it would fail to develop any further causing quite a bit of frustration, at least for us, as viewers.

It is no secret that a darker and more gritty version of “Suicide Squad” exists, as director David Ayer’s original version of the film featured both of those elements, however Warner Bros. stepped in and decided they needed to play up the comedy and light-hearted tones in the film, hence the version of the film that ultimately was released.

There is much debate about why the studio felt the need to step in and adjust the director’s original vision for the film. It is almost as if Warner Bros. learned nothing from the fiasco that occurred with the release of “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. That film was deemed to dark and edgy, so perhaps now they felt that they had to lighten things up to an extreme level.

There is no way you are going to please everyone, so it is probably just best to leave the director’s vision alone. Here’s hoping we see a rated R director’s cut of “Suicide Squad” to gain a better understanding of Ayer’s original ideas.

Speaking of original ideas, Ayer can not seem to catch a break when it comes to “Suicide Squad” as now music duo Die Antwoord are going on the attack claiming that Ayer stole/mimicked their style when it came to both The Joker and Harley Quinn in the film.

They have posted plenty of evidence online to support their claim and wrote a scathing post on Facebook saying “U never asked our permission to rip us off”.  Ouch! Can somebody please cut this poor guy and this film some slack!

(PCM) One oddly unique New Mexico couple could be facing potential jail time for their love affair. Why would that be? Well, because the pair just happen to be mother and son. Yes, you read that correctly! 36-year old Monica Mares recently reunited with her long-lost son 19-year old Caleb Peterson who she gave up for adoption at birth.  The pair linked up via Facebook and then upon first meeting, they promptly fell in love.

When speaking with the Daily Mail, Mares commented, “He is the love of my life and I don’t want to lose him. My kids love him, my whole family does. Nothing can come between us not courts, or jail, nothing…. I have to be with him. When I get out of prison I will move out of Clovis to a state that allows us to be together.”

Peterson adds that the two became an item when “We were hanging out just talking and I looked at her and she looked at me and I kissed her. It was a real kiss it had feelings behind it, there was a spark that ever since then it just stayed. Honestly I never thought we would get into trouble for our relationship. We were both consenting adults – when it comes down to it.”

The mother/son couple decided to go public with their story to bring awareness to Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) relationships. We are not even sure we knew this type of situation needed awareness, however one thing to keep in mind is that incestuous relationships are still very much illegal in all 50 states of the U.S. Mares and Peterson each face up to 18 months in jail and a $5,000 fine if convicted on indecency charges.

Mares, who has nine other children in addition to Peterson, claims that she is willing to give up having a relationship with her other children in order to maintain her romantic entanglement with Peterson. Currently, due to a court order put in place, Mares is to have no contact with Peterson or her other children at this time.

Mares claims that she will endure what she has to in order to be with Peterson saying “It is every bit worth it. If they lock me up for love then they lock me up. There is no way anybody could pull us apart, and I really do love him.” Peterson echos her sentiments saying “In two years time I can see us living together happily living our lives. True love can do anything.”

The whole situation is pretty darn disturbing!  The court system is having some problems with the case as they are trying to prove that Peterson is a victim rather than a defendant.

(PCM) Either the Sea World dolphins in Orlando, FL are staging a revolt or that woman’s iPad seriously resembled a tasty fish snack. With all the controversy that has surrounded Sea World and their practices for keeping animals in captivity we would not be surprised if it was some sort of revolt on behalf of the adorable dolphins the theme park keeps in captivity.

One guest was none too pleased when while she was attempting to film the dolphins with her iPad, one of them hilariously jumped out of the water, grabbed the iPad from her hands and pulled it right into the water. The entire incident was captured by another Sea World guest named Kuadiel Gomez.

The clip has since gone viral being viewed over 50,000 times on YouTube, because seriously who doesn’t love a video of revenge seeking dolphins!  Take that technology! The rest of the dolphin family also appeared to have a great time splashing the heck out of the rest of the park visitors who were surrounding their tank! The dolphins definitely got the last laugh!

(PCM) Get ready to grab your box of Kleenex because here is yet another heartwarming story that is sure to turn on the waterworks. The police in Italy responded to a call about crying coming from the apartment of an elderly couple and decided to pay the couple a visit to do a wellness check.

It turns out that 84-year-old Jole and her 94-year-old husband Michele had been watching television and became so upset about the state of the world that they began to cry after seeing all the horrific stories playing out. It also turns out that they were feeling quite lonely as well, so of course that led the pair to shed even more tears. We can’t stress the importance of calling your grandparents and other elderly loved ones, in our busy lives we sometimes forget that they get lonely and can at times feel forgotten about. It is important to remind them that you are thinking about them and that they are truly not alone.

The police decided to call an ambulance to further check-up on the couple, but instead of just leaving them alone to wait for the transport medics the police decided to spend a few extra minutes with the couple and cooked them a lovely pasta dinner while they waited. Such an amazing act of kindness on behalf of the Italian police officers. The officers shared photos of their dinner party with the couple on the agency’s Facebook page and it has since gone viral being shared over 25,000 times.

Many people commented on the post praising the officers for their good deed and thanking them for showing concern for the couple, who sadly do not receive many visitors these days. Hopefully, Jole and Michele are feeling some better now and perhaps they will receive some more visitors in the future.

(PCM)  The fourth-annual Mixtape Festival, presented by Live Nation, made a sweet return to Hershey Park Stadium with an all-star lineup of pop icons. We were beyond thrilled to attend this year’s festival and witness some truly mind-blowing performances, especially the legendary Paula Abdul’s return to the stage after nearly 25 years and of course the always phenomenal New Kids On The Block who brought their A-game to their Mixtape Festival performance once again. Mixtape alums 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men as well as festival newcomers O-Town, Ryan Cabrera and Dream rounded out Mixtape Festival’s stellar lineup of pop superstars and legacy acts.

Dream1

Dream kicked Mixtape Festival into high gear right away, making note that they had performed at Hershey Park fifteen years ago.  It was a truly touching moment when they performed the very same song they had performed at Hershey Park so many years ago and truly showcases the incredible trajectory of Dream’s overall career.  The crowd was dancing and singing along throughout their entire set!

O-Town1

Next up was O-Town and let’s just say the crowd went absolutely wild. They jokingly commented that they were “taking Hershey Park back to 2005”. This group of four stellar vocalists had amazing stage presence and their “old school” stage costuming consisted of tie-dye, overalls and ripped skin tight jeans was certainly raising the heat factor inside the stadium.  O-Town even threw a few covers of recent hits into their set, such as a wonderful remix of The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face”.  The group had amazing energy and kept the crowd both energized and engaged throughout their performance from beginning to end.

98-Degrees1

We have to say that everyone was on their feet and at full attention when 98 Degrees made their way on stage, deliciously sporting black and white camouflage pants and all black vests. They looked smoking, taking us back to when we had our bedroom walls covered in posters of these boys from floor to ceiling. The group incorporated some amazing stage techniques including fog and strobe lighting and the background video screen featured videos of 98 Degrees from back in 1998. Such a trip down memory lane! Several times the guys came down and performed at the front of the stage and our favorite moment was hearing their rendition of “This is How We Do It”, playfully changing the lyrics to give a shout-out to Hershey Park. It is truly amazing to watch these guys stay in completely rhythm with one another during the dancing and singing, proving that they are the true masters of the boy band formation.

98-Degrees2

98 Degrees also reminded the crowd that they had last performed in Hershey four years ago during their comeback tour. In addition to all of their hit, they also covered a slew of 90’s songs for artists such as Britney Spears, NSYNC, The Spice Girls and Blink 182. They gave a huge shout-out and thank you to all of the fans in attendance. At one point during their set, vocalist Nick Lachey got down on one knee and purposed to a fan while singing “I Do (Cherish You)”, all members were down on one knee by the end of song … it was quite an adorable moment.

Boyz2Men1

After 98 Degrees the heat was brought up another notch when Boyz II Men graced the stage looking incredibly dapper in their all white attire. Boyz II Men had a wonderful time interacting with the audience and began their set by playing various bits and pieces of all their songs.  There was a ton of dancing and they exuded a great amount of energy while on-stage. They had the audience in the palm of their hand from their very first song. One of the funniest moments of their set was when the group made an attempt at singing Lynryd Skynrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” but only made it through a verse of two before laughing and admitting they didn’t know anymore words.  They did however perform an amazing cover of the The Guess Who’s “American Woman”.

Boyz2Men2

Boyz II Men are a group that is highly involved with their fans while on-stage. They were laughing and joking around and even got down on their knees and sang directly to the fans in the front row. They did a fantastic job of taking fans back to 1991, to a time, as they said on stage “when life was good”.  For the group’s last song they even brought their own children out to the stage to dance with them to close out a fantastic set.

Paul-Abdul1

We were super excited for Paula Abdul’s huge comeback to the stage. The entire stadium was blacked out and the anticipation was high as Paula gracefully took to the stage. It was incredible to witness Paula’s first time back on stage after 25 years and she was just amazing. Using a large projector screen as an interactive background, Paula’s set had it all from an amazing group of back-up dancers to some absolutely amazing lighting effects and costume changes between every set.  She looked and sounded utterly fantastic, almost as if no time had gone by at all.

Paul-Abdul2

Paula was very gracious with the fans and thanked the audience for all her years of success. She was very talkative with the crowd and adorably dedicated “Forever Your Girl” to her father saying she will “always be his girl”.

NKOTB2

Yet again the entire stadium was blacked out prior to New Kids On The Block taking the stage to close out Mixtape Festival 2016. The group played a video for the crowd which showcased their extensive career and after the video all five members of New Kids On The Black came out on stage wearing all blue, black and white.  Talk about boundless energy!  These guys were all over the place on stage and the audience was loving every moment.  Red and white confetti and huge streamers rained down upon the crowd and at one point during the set New Kids On The Block was super imposed on a Hershey Bar wrapper on the projection screen.  Multiple times during their set the group came down into the audience to interact and sing with the fans.

NKOTB3

Vocalist Donnie Wahlberg even at one point fell backwards on the stage while doing hip thrusts (which in our opinion, he could do all night) and the group played a clip for the infamous 80’s film “Dirty Dancing” before launching into their song by the same name. The group was incredibly involved with the audience and New Kids On The Block have certainly proven that they still have the “Right Stuff” to put on a fantastic performance.

New Kids On the Block’s Donnie Wahlberg had the following comments about this year’s Mixtape Festival saying, “This year’s Mixtape Festival was the best yet! The enthusiasm of both the artists and the audience was at an all-time high- and the return of Paula Abdul was the ultimate cherry on top!”

Boasting the title of “biggest pop music festival in the US” and hailed by MTV as having “something for every music lover,” festival goers were once again treated to Mixtape’s lineup of performers that won’t be found anywhere else this summer. The festival has brought rising pop stars and legacy acts alike to the world famous Hershey Park Stadium in Hershey, PA for the past three years, with previous performances including a reunion of female hip hop pioneers TLC for the first time in 11 years and a show-stopping performance by super-group NKOTBSB (New Kids on The Block with Backstreet Boys).

(PCM) Such a heartwarming, yet saddening, end to a beautiful life-long love story! Henry and Jeanette De Lange were married for 63 years and both sadly passed away a mere 20 minutes apart in the same room. 87-year old Jeanette passed away first at 5:10pm after succumbing to her battle with Alzheimer’s and was quickly followed in death by her husband 86-year old Henry who passed away at 5:30pm after his battle with prostate cancer.

After Jeanette passed, one of couples son’s looked over at his father and told him “Mom’s gone to heaven” and he claims that at that point his father knew he didn’t have to fight to stay alive any longer. He says Henry opened his eyes one last time to look at his wife and then he too passed away just 20 minutes behind her.

The family claims they could not have asked for a more beautiful way for their parents to leave this earth and thank God for showing mercy on the couple who couldn’t bear to live without one another. A joint funeral was held for the couple who are hopefully spending a true eternity with one another.

Lucy-Statue2

(PCM) The residents of Celoron, New York have finally gotten their wish and the terrifying Lucille Ball statue that was stirring up a ton of controversy throughout the town has finally be replaced by a much for fitting tribute statue.  The new statue looks amazingly better! Definitely a more fitting tribute to one of the most beloved actresses in the world.

The previous statue looked nothing like the late actress and residents were actually terrified of its’ appearance staring an online petition to have it either replaced or removed as soon as possible. A new bronze statue was erected and it is a far more accurate portrayal of the Lucille Ball we all know and love. The new statue was crafted by sculptor Carolyn Palmer and was unveiled by Celoron mayor Scott Schrecengost.

Fans and residents are thrilled with the new statue and even broke out into the humming the infamous “I Love Lucy” theme song during the unveiling ceremony. The last we heard, the scary Lucy statue was making it’s way around various haunted attractions in upstate New York, but no one knows for sure exactly where its’ final resting place will be. Residents are just happy that it is finally gone and many hope to never see it again!

Here’s hoping the new statue has wonderful life!

(PCM) Plenty of us are tuned in watching the 2016 Rio Olympic Games with popular sports being swimming, gymnastics and track and field, but what about the love for Olympic equestrian sports/competitions? Probably overlooked that one, right?  Well, after watching the bizarre video below that aims to amp up the excitement level for equestrian sport, you just might want to start tuning in … well, maybe not …

If you ever had a curiosity about learning the in’s and out’s of equestrian competition the video surely does feature it all complete with crazy horse-headed people, dancing and a wild 80’s soundtrack. The events featured are: Equestrian Dressage, Equestrian Eventing, and Equestrian Jumping. Right, we don’t really know, either! Perhaps if watching equestrian events at the Olympic Games was anything even close to the video, it might actually be worth tuning in!

New Jersey Man Receives A Double Obituary From Both His Wife And Longtime Girlfriend http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/08/new-jersey-man-receives-a-double-obituary-from-both-his-wife-and-longtime-girlfriend/ Sun, 07 Aug 2016 09:32:45 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32836 Leroy-Black

(PCM) An Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey man by the name of Leroy Black passed away at the age of 55 and his death is creating quite a stir due to the fact that he has received dueling obituaries from both his “loving wife” and “long-time girlfriend”. Oh, to be a fly on the way at this upcoming funeral service!

Both obituaries include the fact that Black passed way due to “cancer of the lungs due to fiberglass exposure” and was surrounded by his family and loved ones at the time of his death. However, one keen reader of the “Press Of Atlantic City” noticed that there were some key differences between the two published obituaries.… Full Story

(PCM) An Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey man by the name of Leroy Black passed away at the age of 55 and his death is creating quite a stir due to the fact that he has received dueling obituaries from both his “loving wife” and “long-time girlfriend”. Oh, to be a fly on the way at this upcoming funeral service!

Both obituaries include the fact that Black passed way due to “cancer of the lungs due to fiberglass exposure” and was surrounded by his family and loved ones at the time of his death. However, one keen reader of the “Press Of Atlantic City” noticed that there were some key differences between the two published obituaries.

One of the major glaring differences between both obituaries was in the list of survivors. In the first obituary, Black’s “loving wife” Bearetta Harrison Black is listed first as his survivor, however in the second obituary Bearetta’s name is nowhere to be found and it has been replaced by the words “survived by his long-time girlfriend, Princess Hall”.

When a call was placed to the funeral home, the director claimed that the reason there were two obituaries was due to the fact that the wife wanted it one way and the girlfriend wanted it another. He goes on to say that he does not anticipate any issues during the funeral service as both the wife and the girlfriend were completely aware of the situation.

Something tells us there will still be some sparks flying at Mr. Black’s funeral, but let’s hope his is now resting in peace!

(PCM)  The director of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Daniela Rus, has shared news about her teams latest invention which is a pill-sized robot that when swallowed by a patient would be able to complete repairs within the human body.

The way it works is that once swallowed the tiny robot would unfold like origami and it would then be guided by a tiny magnet from outside the body to remove a foreign object from the stomach or treat a wound by administering medication. This invention would eliminate certainly types of invasive surgery to solve a plethora of medical conditions.

The team would place the accordion-shaped robot into an inch-long, 0.09-ounce pill, which dissolves in the stomach with a few moments. The robot then expands to 1.4 in. by 0.7 in. by 0.3 in. Doctors can then generate magnetic fields near the patient to guide the robot through the stomach, where they can manipulate it to perform tasks. The robot would later just break down in the body the same way as food.

Many might be wondering about the cost behind such an incredible invention, as it sounds like it could be on the expensive side. Rus claims that the equipment to manipulate the robot would be a bit on the pricey side, however the actual creation of the robot itself would only cost about $100. Rus and her team have tested the robot in a silicon-molded prototype stomach and are seeking approval from MIT’s animal care committee to try it in pigs. They claim the results are looking incredibly promising thus far! Definitely a cool concept!

(PCM) A Spanish couple named Nako and Maria Javierre claimed victory over a legal battle to give their newborn son a unique name. You might think, given that a legal battle ensued, that the couple had chosen some incredibly odd or offensive name for their child, but in reality it was truly not very odd at all.

Nako and Maria wished to name their baby “Lobo” which is the Spanish word for “wolf”, however when they went to register the name with the Fuenlabrada registry office in Madrid they were informed that the name they had chosen was too offensive and they had to choose another.… Full Story

(PCM) A Spanish couple named Nako and Maria Javierre claimed victory over a legal battle to give their newborn son a unique name. You might think, given that a legal battle ensued, that the couple had chosen some incredibly odd or offensive name for their child, but in reality it was truly not very odd at all.

Nako and Maria wished to name their baby “Lobo” which is the Spanish word for “wolf”, however when they went to register the name with the Fuenlabrada registry office in Madrid they were informed that the name they had chosen was too offensive and they had to choose another. We think Lobo is kind of a cool name and certainly not very offensive, so it is a bit baffling to understand why the registry office would have found an issue with it.

There are plenty of men out there named Wolf and there are definitely odder names that the couple could have chosen. Take for example Apple or Blanket?  How about Moon Unit? The couple eventually took their fight with the registry office to social media and began an online petition which garnered over 26,000 signatures for those in support of the couple and their newborn son’s name.

The Spanish authorities looked over the petition and eventually backed down and allowed the Javierre family to give their child the chosen name of “Lobo”. At last, justice was served! What do you think of the name?
