‘The Simpsons’ is the longest running prime time scripted series in American television history and now News Corp., which owns the franchise, may be looking to capitalize on 22 seasons of the Emmy-winning cartoon with a channel dedicated exclusively to life in Springfield.
As recently as four years ago, funk legend Sly Stone was living in a home in Napa Valley, CA that was large enough to be described as a compound.
Those days are gone now, as Stone — whose group Sly and the Family Stone was one of the most successful acts of the late 60s and early 70s — has lost his home and his fortune due to poor financial management and crippling bouts of substance abuse.
Borders bookstores will shut their doors forever at the end of this month, and in a final kiss-off to those who patronized the once-popular chain, employees at one of Borders’ franchises hung in their display window a bitter note which listed all the things customers had done to piss them off over the years.
Musician/comedian Matt “The Mouth” Mulholland was able to recreate the entire audio track from the famous skateboard chase scene in ‘Back to the Future’ using only the power of his own voice.
