I don't know what your generation's fascination is with documenting your every thought... but I can assure you, they're not all diamonds. "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Who gives a rat's ass?
- The Rolling Stones brought in a couple of special guests for their concert Saturday night in Las Vegas. The Green Valley High School choir joined the legendary rock outfit for their performance of "You Can't Always Get What You Want," while pop star Katy Perry joined Mick Jagger on "Beast of Burden."
- Iron Man 3 continued is dominance at the box office this weekend, claiming the #1 spot for the second week in a row with a $70 million-plus take, putting it at a worldwide total of nearly $950 million--almost to that magical billion-dollar mark. The Great Gatsby debuted at #2 well above expectations with an impressive $50 million, while Pain & Gain came in third, and Tyler Perry's "Hey, I'm Still Here Too!" flick Peeples bombed like William Hung on the Warped Tour.
- Robert Downey Jr., you've just starred in the biggest movie of the year thus far--what are you going to do next?! If you said, "I'm gonna be in my buddy Jon Favreau's indy comedy called Chef that he wrote himself and will also direct, produce, and star in, and it's about a chef who loses his job and opens a food truck to reclaim his artistic food integrity, and you can find out more about it next week at Canne, as well as other cameos from Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and more!", then that's oddly prophetic.
- The Wii U might be in even more trouble from disheartened third-party developers, as EA has now said they simply can't make the Frostbite 3 engine work on Nintendo's next-gen system. This means that major upcoming sequels like the next entries in the Mass Effect, Battlefield, and Dragon Age series won't be appearing on the console, as well as any of those now-exclusive-to-EA Star Wars games. This is gonna get ugly...
- Speaking of ugly, Aliens: Colonial Marines sucked so hard, the studio was sued over it...and now, it's sucked even harder, to the point that Timegate has reportedly closed its doors for good. To be fair, the studio was facing other financial and legal issues from SouthPeak Studios, among others, so...yeah.
'Til Tuesday, you manic monkeys...ROCK!
