Elizabeth Taylor, Legend
by Jon Fusco
Happy Birthday to silver screen legend Elizabeth Taylor. From Lassie
, she was certainly one of the classiest. With a career that started very early as a child and progressed through the Golden Age of Hollywood, to this day she still serves as one of the most iconic figures to ever have graced the silver screen. In fact, AFI ranks her number seven on their list of the all time “Greatest Screen Legends” and she garnered two Academy Awards to attest to that fact.
More than just a great actor, she set a standard for the industry as a whole, ushering in a whole new standard of glamour that today’s top actors can only hope to emulate for themselves. One of the movies that launched her into stardom was Father of The Bride
. You can watch the sequel, Father’s Little Dividend, free here

….and while you’re at it, check out a few more of her early hits:

Alec Baldwin’s Celebrity Ideals Shattered
by Jon Fusco
It’s not really much of a surprise that people are angry at Alec Baldwin. Aside from personally attacking a select handful of producers, directors, actors and anchors who made his 2013 a living nightmare, his interview/farewell/rant in New York Magazine seemed to be more pointed towards the entirety of U.S. modern society than the entertainment industry itself. Sure, he blames the media for the majority of his problems, but what seems to be a greater source of upset is how the audience blindly trusts it, takes it in, and perpetuates its ideas through social media outlets. From his troubled Orphans stint on Broadway to a dismissal from MSNBC for “lack of moral character” and the end of a long love affair with the city of Manhattan, Alec Baldwin’s romantic ideas of celebrity are slowly crumbling apart. He’s accepting it and moving on.
Watch him kick a** and take even more
names in Brooklyn Rules

We’re watching MacHeads (the best Apple fan doc ever) in his honor. Watch MacHeads here or below.
Heavy Metal Parking Lot was produced by Jeff Krulik and John Heyn as a video documentary short about teenagers tailgating before a 1986 Maryland Judas Priest concert. Since then, it’s become a cult sensation — with fans ranging from Rob Halford himself to Sofia Coppola. According to legend, Nirvana used to watch it in their tour bus. We’d like to think they played a drinking game based on the film — it is, after all, a homage to tailgating. For a good time while watching, get out your PBR and molten British steel and get ready to knock ‘em back. Ladies and Gents, here’s the HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT DRINKING GAME.
