Oh if only this was real........

 

(UPROXX) The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that most children of a certain generation remember is bright and goofy, with broad villains like a dimwitted bat-monkey and the Bloom of Doom. This ain’t that Power Rangers. It’s also not a porn parody, despite that last sentence. Power/Rangers is Joseph Kahn’s fan film, “not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition,” that turns Zordon’s crew into a bunch of moody sex-starved assassins. Kahn, the director of music videos for everyone from Aaliyah to Rob Zombie and the full-length feature Torquetold HitFix:

“The irony here is that I wouldn’t even want to make Power Rangers: The Movie for real. Like if I had to make a Power Rangers movie, this is it. It’s 14 minutes long and it’s violent and this is what I have in me. If they offered me the $200 million version, the PG-13 version, I literally wouldn’t do it. It’s just not interesting to me.” (Via)

UPDATE: Afroman offered this apology on Twitter
 
 
 
 
 
(UPROXX) Joseph Foreman, also known as Afroman, was in the middle of a guitar solo at a Mardi Gras show in Biloxi, Miss. when a woman walked onto the stage and shimmied up behind him. The first reaction might’ve been to turn around and see what happening, but clearly Afroman has been in a rough situation or two in during his day. His reaction is to turn and immediately wallop the lady in the face, sending her to the ground in a lump. 
 
Afroman was arrested and charged with misdemeanor simple assault. He paid $330 cash to bond out of jail. According to Biloxi’s police chief, the musician “gave us no problem whatsoever.”

You probably heard of tons of things that expectant motheres use to induce labor....from eating spicy food to walking around the block to shoveling snow. But what about Michael Jackson's Thriller??

 

Bonnie Northsea of Florida uploaded a video of her dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller to speed up the process of her unborn son coming into the world. She made the video on her due date. No word on if this actually worked but at least it's entertaining!!

 

 

Since the video was uploaded, it has over 1 million views on YouTube!! And Northsea is happy about that. She says it's a welcome distraction.

 

"My husband is fighting a battle with testicular cancer (just diagnosed a month ago) so it has been difficult emotionally recently," Northsea wrote. "This video really helped as it has caused me to laugh over and over again."

 

Say prayers for the whole family!!

(Gawker) Drake is the gooberest cool rapper on Earth, and the following story will only further cement his goober legend. Last night, in an interview with a Miami sports radio station, Mia Khalifa—the number one ranked porn star on Pornhub—told a story about someone who is almost definitely Drake sliding into her Instagram DMs, to send her a series of enthusiastic messages she described as "so cringeworthy."

 

Khalifa was asked by host Brian Papa which celebrity men had personally contacted her since her sudden rise to fame. After initially demurring, Khalifa said that she was hit up by a famous man whose name... rhymes with "rake." She then begins to cackle before gathering herself to say that the "rake" man's DMs were "so cringeworthy." "The whole thing was cringeworthy," she reiterates.

 

Papa then jokes that the man they both non-verbally agree is Drake probably sent Khalifa a photo of himself "lying on the bed, shirtless, kinda sad looking"—a cutting Drake caricature if there ever was one—to which she responds, in between laughter, that the radio host is "halfway there."

(Consequence Of Sound) Eminem has unveiled the video for the star-studded posse cut “Detroit Vs. Everybody”, which features fellow Motor City MCs Danny Brown, Big Sean, Royce da 5’9″, Dej Loaf, and Trick Trick.

 

The fast-paced, distinctively cinematic affair comprises black-and-white footage of each rapper performing in a separate locale around Detroit, including Em in a dusty stairwell and Brown tucked off in a decrepit warehouse. The approach definitely suits the song and its gritty portrayal of Detroit, lending a kind of personality and romanticism to all that darkness and intensity. Plus, if the ending is any indication, we can expect a sequel featuring the jam-packed, 16-minute remix. Watch it below.

LANSING, MI — Plans for a Christian nativity scene at the Michigan Capitol are on hold, but "The Satanic Temple" is moving forward with its own holiday display that was originally planned in response.

The group, which describes itself as a collective of “Satanists, secularists and advocates for individual liberty," has received permission to put up a display on the north Capitol lawn from December 21 to 23.

"We would prefer that no religious iconography was displayed on Capitol grounds or on state grounds for that matter," said Jex Blackmore, founder and head of the Detroit chapter. "But if there was going to be a singular voice represented, we felt it was best to add to that representation of diversity here in Michigan."

John Truscott, a member of the Michigan State Capitol Commission, confirmed that The Satanic Temple has been granted approval for the temporary outdoor display. It will be limited to 3-feet by 3-feet in size and must be removed each evening because of a pre-existing ban on overnight displays.

"We are restricted by the Constitution and bound by the Constitution to recognize their First Amendment rights," said Truscott. "We don’t have the ability to reject them if they meet the guidelines of the Capitol."

But on a personal level, Truscott said he thinks it is "absolutely disgusting to hijack a Christian holiday," and he expressed hope that the public will "just completely ignore these negative forces."

The commission in November considered a request from an out-of-state individual seeking to place a Christian nativity scene on the Capitol lawn. The unnamed individual was told he could obtain permission, but rules prohibiting an overnight display proved to be a logistical challenge.

"He's out-of-state, and he has not found anyone who could put it up and take it down yet, so there’s really been nothing to approve, in terms of the size and specifications," said Truscott.

The Satanic Temple made national headlines last month when it won approval to put up a display inside the Florida Capitol, where it was expected to join a pair of Christian nativity scenes. Its request had been rejected the year before.

The group does not worship Satan, according to Blackmore. Rather it seeks to "separate superstition from deeply held religious beliefs." The Michigan display, constructed by the Detroit chapter, includes a cross, a snake and a message that "the greatest gift is knowledge."

(LSJ) Fork in the Road, the bricks-and-mortar restaurant that sprang from a food truck venture, will serve its last meals Nov. 23.

The decision came when owner Jesse Hahn came to his own crossroad and had to decide: Close the restaurant at 2010 W. Saginaw St. or cut wages, increase food prices and rely less on Lansing-area farmers.

 

Money problems are the root of Hahn's problems, not his menu using locally grown ingredients or a lack of customers. A federal income tax lien of nearly $35,000 was slapped on Fork in the Road in May. Hahn estimates he would need another $3,000 in monthly sales for the next three years to pay off the tax lien and stay open.

 

He said the federal government might negotiate an agreement but that he would rather start from scratch. Hahn hopes to start a similar business in the Lansing area but has no definite plans. Fork in the Road will sell its Trailer Park'd food truck to help pay off the tax lien.

(MTV) Free life lesson: if you’re going to film Jay Z and Beyoncé taking daughter Blue Ivy on a private tour of The Louvre in Paris, you should at least know who they are.

 

A tourist-turned-wannabe paparazzo made a major faux pas when he tried to get footage of the On The Run Tour headliners making their way into the historic French museum.

 

“Who is he?” the cameraman asked about the world-renowned rapper from Brooklyn.

 

The Magna Carta… Holy Grail MC then gave the best response ever as he walked by with his daughter in his arms and his super-famous wife — who was busy taking photos of her own — trailing behind.

(NPR) Thomas Eric Duncan, the 33-year-old man who contracted Ebola in Liberia and later traveled to Dallas, where he was being treated, has died, hospital officials say.

 

(Wilmot Chayee/AP)

 

A statement from the company that runs Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Duncan was in isolation, read:

 

"It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 am. Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing. We have offered the family our support and condolences at this difficult time."


Duncan arrived in Dallas on Sept. 20 and became ill within days.

 

Duncan first developed symptoms on Wednesday, Sept. 24, according to the CDC, and first sought care that Friday. On Sunday, Sept. 28, he was placed in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services.

 

Within days, health officials said they were tracing as many as 100 people who had either direct or secondary contact with Duncan for monitoring. They subsequently narrowed the list to about 50, with only about 10 people said to have had close contact and be at the greatest risk for the disease — although health officials have repeatedly said the risk was low for all of the "contact traces."

(The Telegraph) Dysfunctional cartoon fathers Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin will be united in a special episode of The Simpsons in September, and if this sneak preview is anything to go by, it's likely to end in disaster and possibly the end of Springfield.


The Griffin family, known for starring in Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy, descend on Springfield for a single, eventful episode. Bart initiates Stewie in the art of pranking bartender Moe Szyslak and Peter and Homer bond over doughnuts before relationships really unravel.

The clip was first shown at Comic-Con in San Diego on Sunday before being posted to YouTube.


It is one of two hybrid Simpsons episodes that will appear later this year, the second being a mash-up with Matt Groening's other animated series, Futurama.

(TMZFormer Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin was so drunk when she was arrested Sunday morning ... she was found laying in a random person's front yard and told cops she planned on sleeping in the woods.


TMZ broke the story ... Franklin was arrested early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct, and the details are crazy.

According to the police NFL player Da'Quan Bowers flew Franklin to Myrtle Beach.  The two of them, along with NFL player Ricky Sapp went out on the town Saturday day and night ... and the alcohol was flowing.  They all went back to Sapp's place and it became apparent to everyone Franklin was wasted.

Sapp and Bowers both told police they thought Franklin had been doing drugs.  Bowers told police he was suspicious of Franklin because she would go to the bathroom for extended periods of time. 

Bowers and Sapp say they called cops after Franklin went nuts, screaming and slamming doors. They told police Franklin fled. Cops combed the neighborhood and eventually found Franklin laying down in a neighbor's lawn. 

Police described Franklin as "highly intoxicated" and "unsteady on her feet," but she denied using drugs. She told police she had nowhere to go and planned on sleeping in the woods.

She was arrested for disorderly conduct.

(TMZ) Chris Brown is assaulting Drake again ... this time right in the mouth -- but truth be told it's part of a comedy skit at Wednesday's ESPY awards.


Here's what we know from the rehearsals ... the skit begins in a law office, then a locker room and finally in a dentist's office with Clippers star Blake Griffin standing over Drake like Steve Martin in "Little Shop of Horrors."

Blake looks like he's about to go in deep, when a frightened Drake blurts out, "Are you really going to do this?"  Then -- suddenly -- Chris walks in and answers, "No, I am!"

After reading this, you might want to bathe in Purell. The Huffington Post's StyleList assembled a list of the top 10 most dirty, dusty and germy places in your home and how to clean them.

 

1. Credit/Debit Cards
You're not the only one handling your credit and debit cards. Other people touch them, too - -and who knows when they last washed their hands or what they touched five minutes ago. Even if you only swipe your card and never hand it over, what is lurking inside that card-swipe machine or ATM? Grab some disinfectant wipes and take a minute or two to clean your credit cards. Do let them dry completely before returning them to your wallet.

 

2. Electronics
Your electronics -- from your cell phone to your e-reader--are coated in germs and the level of contamination is horrible. Some studies show cell phones contain 18 times more germs than toilet handles. Swab them down with disinfectant wipes.

 

3. Toothbrush Holders
Want to see something gross? Take your toothbrush out of the holder and peer inside. Do you see mold? Discoloration? Grime? That could end up in your mouth! Pour a solution of one part bleach and three parts water into the toothbrush holder and let it soak for an hour. Rinse and dry upside down on a dish rack.

 

4. The Bottom of Throw Rugs
This is easy and fast to do and will help keep your wood floors cleaner for a longer time. When vacuuming, turn over the throw rugs and vacuum the underside.

 

5. The Top of Large Appliances
They're too tall for you to see it with a step stool, but the top of your refrigerator, stove vents and other big appliances are dusty and grimy on top. Wipe down the surfaces with white vinegar and rinse with a water-lemon mixture. Dry it with a clean cloth. If you can move them, do the same thing with the bottom of the appliances.

 

6. Ceiling Fans
Pull out a ladder and look at the top of your ceiling fans. Chances are, there is a thick layer of dust on them, which could contain residue particles that resemble mold on ripe fruit. Turn on the fan, and those particles are dispersed throughout the room. To clean the top of the ceiling fan, put two tablespoons of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spritz the solution into an old pillowcase. Insert the pillowcase around the fan blade and drag the bag along the bag's surface. This will collect and clean the dust. Use a clean cloth to clean up anything that remains on the blades.

 

7. Toilet Roll Holders
When you flush the commode, water inside the toilet bowl is sprayed around the area -- including the toilet roll holder. Disinfect it once a month with a sanitizing wipe or clean it with a bleach and water solution.

 

8. Box Springs
Ever look underneath your bed? Chances are the box spring is covered in dust. It's easy to clean with a vacuum hose.

 

9. Light Switches
Bacteria is easily and quickly transferred from person to person in your home just by touching the light switches. Spray rubbing alcohol or an all-purpose cleaner into a clean cloth and wipe the switch and plate until they are clean and grease-free.

 

10. Salt and Pepper Shakers
When the salt and pepper shakers are empty, clean them in the dishwasher before refilling them. These common household items are known to contain the highest concentrations of germs that cause cold and flu viruses. Between washings, use disinfectant wipes to sanitize the outside surface.

(TMZ) Talk about having "flow" ... rapper Action Bronson TOOK A PISS in a port-a-potty during a live concert this weekend -- while continuing to RAP during the ENTIRE bathroom break!!!

 

Bronson was performing his song "Shiraz" at the Ottawa Bluesfest on Saturday when nature called -- but he didn't stop the show ... he grabbed the mic and continued to rap while he strolled to a bank of blue toilets.

Then ... while in the pisser ... he CONTINUED TO RAP -- without missing a beat!!!

 

He eventually emerged to huge applause ... and continued to rap as if it were no big deal. .The most impressive part -- it looks like he used a paper towel to open the door from the inside so he didn't have to touch the handle ... WHILE RAPPING!!!

(Lansing State Journal) A company owned in part by hometown hero Earvin “Magic” Johnson has taken over food service for the Lansing School District.

 

The school board earlier this year chose SodexoMAGIC to feed its 12,000-plus students beginning this fall. The company took over from Aramark Educational Services on July 1, the start of the fiscal year.

 

Johnson — an Everett High School, MSU and NBA standout before becoming a successful entrepreneur — has promised to personally host an annual fund-raising event to benefit the Lansing Promise and HOPE scholarship program.

Why is Solange whippin' on Jay Z in the Elevatior?!? This video has just surfaced and we are sure the story is surely to follow!

 

Via NecoleBitchie.com

Jay Z has 99 problems, and Beyonce’s sister may be one!

Solange recently laid hands on Jay, and it was all caught on camera.

As you may remember, last week Jay Z’s charm stole photographers hearts as he slipped a ring on Beyonce’s finger on the red carpet of the MET Gala, but according to a new video that has made it’s way online, hours later he found himself being attacked by Solange Knowles while leaving the event.  In the video, posted by TMZ, Solange looks as though she’s arguing with Jay as the group enters the elevator, and she immediately starts swinging before the doors even had the chance to close.   A man, that looks to be Beyonce’s bodyguard Julius, attempts to hold her back, but she gets quite a few hits and kicks in throughout the ordeal. It also looks as though she may have spit on him, meanwhile, Beyonce remained in a corner.

Minutes later, everyone peeled out of the elevator as if nothing ever happened!

(MLIVE) -- If you're a high school senior who hasn't decided on a college for the fall, you're in luck: several Michigan schools still have space in their incoming classes. Nationally, more than 200 schools haven't filled out their freshman classes for the fall, according to the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, which tracks schools that are still accepting applications.

 

In Michigan, 10 schools are still reporting they have openings: Albion College, Alma College, Compass College of Cinematic Arts, Davenport University, Kendall College of Art and Design, Kettering University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, University of Detroit Mercy and Western Michigan University.

Wale more concerned with the competitive nature of music than he is with making money.

D.C. rapper Wale kicked off this week’s interview with The Breakfast Club by speaking on the recent controversy involving Complex magazine. While speaking on the incident, which involved the Maybach Music Group emcee threatening Complex staff, Wale revealed that he’s not in the music industry for the money and therefore takes more issue with not being included on roundups like Complex’s "50 Best Albums Of 2013" list.

He also questioned why he wasn’t nominated for a Grammy award for The Gifted when a Kendrick Lamar song that appeared on the NBA 2K14 soundtrack and was a good kid, m.A.A.d city bonus track did receive a nomination.

“I don’t care about the money, Joe. I like the sport, yo,” Wale said. “I played sports my whole life. So, I like the competitive nature. You know what I’m saying? I like the sport of rhyming. I want to have quadruple entendres on certain records. And everybody to be rewinding ‘em. And it be in the locker room or at the lunch table talking about ‘You heard what he said?’ That’s what I care about…It’s just a combination of things, but I’m in a place now where it’s like I’m at bat trying again to do it.”

Wale also spoke on meeting his grandfather for the first time while in Nigeria filming Revolt TV’s Wale: I Am From documentary. While speaking on Nigeria, the D.C. spitter also addressed those who feel he’d be more successful if he was more vocal about his Nigerian roots.

“So, I met my grandfather for the first time. So, it was really intense,” he said. “And I don’t really show that side of myself. I like to keep my personal life away. Y’all get my emotional, but y’all don’t really get the—y’all don’t know who I’m dating…I use my real, Nigerian name. That’s the first red flag of embracing it. You know what I’m saying? My first album I sampled a famous African record. Did a video for it. I’ve worked with Wizkid. I’ve worked with [Olamide]. I’ve worked with a lot of these people. Just because they not on the U.S. radar—I don’t know if I need to go Lil Wayne on niggas and put the tattoo of a Nigerian scripture, Nigerian Yoruba scriptures on the side of my face so they can be like ‘Yeah.’ I don’t know if I gotta come in wearing an agbada or something like that. But I do my best…That’s like Drake walking around with a yamaka.”

Towards the end of Wale’s interview with The Breakfast Club, he revealed that friend and fellow rapper J. Cole is “more of a jerk” than he is and accepted the fact that he’ll never be considered a media darling.

“People love Cole and Cole’s a jerk, yo,” Wale said. “That’s one of my best friends though, but Cole is a jerk too. He’s a jerk. He’s more of a jerk than me. He’s just quiet. He’s quiet. He’s light-skinned. I’m like black ass, D.C. loud…Let’s just let it be known now that I’m not gonna be a media darling. I’m not gon’ be Janelle Monae. You know what I’m saying? Janelle Monae talented as fuck. We can do the same amount of numbers, but she can get Good Morning America. A Saturday Night Live. She can get to sit on Letterman or something like that. We can do the same amount, but I ain’t getting none of that. So, I’ve accepted it.”

This week’s interview comes one month after a recorded phone call between Wale and Complexmagazine’s Insanul Ahmed was released online. During the roughly three-minute long conversation, Wale threatened to visit the publication’s office and “start knocking niggas the fuck out.”

"Fuck you, dog. You know it's disrespect. I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking niggas the fuck out,” the rapper said. “Y'all wanna see some ghetto ignorant shit? That's what y'all promote. That's the only thing y'all promote from niggas.”

(New York Post) Some unsuspecting New Yorkers were scared out of their wits by a demonic robot baby hidden in what looked like an abandoned stroller – a shriek-inducing prank to promote the new horror flick Devil’s Due.

 

 

“Why would they do this?” shouts one man in a video clip about the prank after he took a peek into the stroller and the animatronic “devil baby” popped up and howled like a wild animal.
In the short video – aptly titled “Devil Baby Attack” – passersby notice the stroller and bend over to investigate.


The bald-headed, red-eyed little monster then pops out, shrieking and in some cases spewing a ghastly liquid from its mouth. Hidden cameras caught the priceless reactions.The baby was created by the techies at Thinkmodo, a new York-based viral video marketing outfit.
Devil’s Due opens in theaters on Friday.

(TMZ) Kanye West just attacked an 18-year-old guy inside the waiting room of a chiropractor's office ... TMZ has learned.

 

Kanye and Kim were in Beverly Hills when they were swarmed by photogs.  We're told the 18-year-old came to Kim's rescue and held the door of a medical building open so she could get in. 

 

As Kim walked, the guy allegedly said, "F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs"" -- referring to the paparazzi.  Kim then told him it was not appropriate to use the N-word.  We're told he then screamed at her, "F**k you bitch.  Just trying to help you.  Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut."

Apparently that got Kim hot as fish grease ... she watched the guy walk into an office.  A short time later Kanye arrived and went into the office.

 

Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there.  Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape."

 

Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men.  Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.

(Rollingstone.com) Rick Ross is suing LMFAO for copyright infringement, claiming the refrain "Everday I'm shufflin'" from the duo's 2010 chart-topper "Party Rock Anthem" rips off the Bawse's own lyric, "Everday I'm hustlin'" from his 2006 single "Hustlin,'" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

 

 

"The use of 'Hustlin" in 'Party Rock Anthem' is readily apparent, despite the slight change from 'Everyday I’m hustlin'. . . 'to 'Everyday I’m shufflin'. . . " and constitutes, inter alia, the creation of an unauthorized derivative work," the lawsuit reads. To boot, the suit, which was filed in a Florida federal court, states that LMFAO's performance of the lyric is similar to Ross' making it "an obvious attempt to capitalize on the fame and success of 'Hustlin."

 

Ross and "Hustlin'" co-composer Jermaine Jackson (not of Jackson 5 fame) are seeking an injunction and maximum statutory damages from LMFAO. While no figure was given, the damages could amount to a substantial amount considering "Party Rock Anthem"'s massive sales figures (it's sold 7.5 million copies to date) and its use in various films, TV shows, video games and advertisements; the phrase in question has also appeared on T-shirts and other items in LMFAO's Party Rock Clothing line.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University is getting ready to welcome back the Spartans following their Rose Bowl victory.

The East Lansing school’s athletics department says fans wishing to greet the football team should wait Thursday night at the Skandalaris Football Center. People are being asked to stay away from Lansing’s airport, since access to the team isn’t planned there.

No. 4 Michigan State beat No. 5 Stanford 24-20 Wednesday night.

East Lansing Fire Department Lt. Chuck Gagnier tells the Lansing State Journal it was “fairly quiet” in the hometown of the Spartans afterward. WLNS-TV reports five fires, mostly furniture burned outside. WILX-TV reports extra police patrols took place.

Last month, a rowdy celebration of Michigan State’s victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten championship included dozens of fires and prompted arrests.

Beyoncé has angered people with a picture that popped up on her Instagram.  

 

 

The picture features the Queen herself blocking out Jesus in a painting of ‘The Last Supper’ and replacing him with — who else — Beysus.

 

Said snap has angered some of her fans who find the image in poor taste — intentional or not.

 

Commentary ranged from people being angry and claiming it’s blasphemy that Mrs. Carter would insinuate that she’s on the same footing as the Christian son of God, while others started yelling their usual cries of Illuminati.

 

Of course, there are also those who are more than willing to bow down to their new lord and savior, Beysus.

Offensive? Hilarious? You be the judge, Internet.
