Sharp Aquos Crystal will also reach US

From GadgeTell Sharp, in partnership with Softbank, is coming out with a new phone that will appeal to pretty much anyone who hates bezels. The Aquos Crystal is an Android smartphone that clearly takes some of its design elements from Sharp's slim televisions. The phone has practically no top or bottom bezels which means that its looks are superior to other phones. Unfortunately, those looks do come with some trade-offs, since the Aquos Crystal has less impressive specs than most flagship Android phones. Read the full post on GadgeTell »

Fin: Baseball’s best fans, drug-testing comedians and Fareed gets nailed 

One of my favorite Twitter accounts for the past several years has been @BestFansStLouis, a feed consisting entirely of retweets of unfair and often racist things posted by fans of the St. Louis Cardinals. The idea is to push back against the notion that Cards fans are somehow classier or more friendly than those of every more »

Craig Ferguson: from late late night to pre-prime time?

Ever since he announced he plans to leave ‘The Late Late Show‘ this December, fans have been frantic, wondering what Scottish funnyman Craig Ferguson would do next. After 10 years following David Letterman (who himself is retiring in 2015), they’ve speculated if he would try for another talk show or do something a bit different. more »

Ian Ziering demands bigger payday for ‘Sharknado 3′

In his autobiography, “Back to the Batcave”, Adam West talks about time he was pulled into Batman producer William Dozier’s office shortly after he made the cover of Life magazine. Dozier showed West the cover and calmly reminded the actor –and I’m paraphrasing here – “there were seven Tarzans” before dismissing him. Dozier’s message to more »

Lifetime has released a trailer for “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” and it is insane

Lifetime movies are a strange, beautiful thing. They’re uniformly terrible, silly, and incompetent pieces of filmmaking, even by the already suspect standard of the TV movie. Two years ago “Liz & Dick,” the woefully ill-conceived Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton biopic starring the embattled Lindsay Lohan as Taylor, briefly captured the popular imagination and became an ironic more »

Fox turns down Tina Fey-produced ‘Cabot College’, next stop NBC?

It seems not every major stateside TV network can get and appreciate Tina Fey’s very particular, very original sense of humor, and so the 30 Rock star, writer and producer will merely continue her mutually beneficial NBC collaboration. The Peacock, which pulled 30 Rock out of the air in 2013 after seven hilarious, cult-followed, critically more »

No, Taylor Swift’s new video is not racist

T-Swizz’s new video to “Shake it Off” dropped today and the Internet is conflicted as to whether or not it’s okay to love the sh*t out of it. Though the song is catchier than God’s own voice inviting you into heaven and the video is Audrey Hepburn circa “Funny Face” on steroids, the Internet is more »

Movie Review: “Let’s Be Cops” 

“Let’s Be Cops” never had a chance. Not necessarily because of the world-historically awful timing of its release, although that certainly doesn’t help. Don’t hate this movie because it’s a celebration of reckless police power at a time when such a thing is somewhat out of favor- hate it because it’s unfunny, derivative and ultimately more »
