There is so much to say about this video, but we won’t do that. Let’s just watch it together…
Maybe it’s a glitch in the Matrix, or maybe we’re all just suckers for nostalgia. The return of Hello Dolly on broadway wasn’t the only flamboyant revival we’ve seen in 2011.

Hood vs. Evil, Johnny English Reborn, Kung Fu Panda 2, Piranha 3DD, Sherlock Holmes 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Madea’s Big Happy Family, Paranormal Activity 3, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Scream 4, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Part One), Fast Five, Final Destination 5, Puss in Boots, X-Men: First Class, Winnie the Pooh, The Muppets: Rise of the Apes, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows PART TWO.
Here’s where we bitch about the obvious. Instead, the folks at PPW have prepared a treat: THE HANGOVER TRAILERS SIDE BY SIDE. They’re not identical, but then again at one point, we all thought Michelle Tanner was one person.

No joke. This actually happened. What you don’t see is how nice Tom Wilson actually is. Thankfully for all of us, you can’t see anything in Biff’s pants either. This video was filmed at a fun lil’ comedy club called The Icehouse in Pasadena, where Tom stayed well after his show to meet and greet with fans. Luckily, some dude next to me was hollering like a madman, which spawned this epic camera in Biff’s pants moment.
For more on the very funny and talented Tom Wilson, please visit his official site (http://www.tomwilsonusa.com/).
Tom is also a very accomplished visual artist, focusing on pop imagery that PPW can definitely get behind. A few of his paintings are below, but see more at (http://www.bigpopfun.com/)

Filmgoers have the rare opportunity to see a 35mm, theatrical print of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” along with a talkback with many of the film’s cast and its screenwriter, at a midnight showing on Friday, February 11, 2011, at Landmark’s Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.

In 1987, Seth Green was barely a teenager when he got to hang with the cool kids on the set of “Can’t Buy Me Love.” From seeing movies with his on-screen older brother Patrick Dempsey, to learning skateboard tricks off the set from Max Perlich, Green recalled many fond memories with his castmates while filming this 80′s cult-classic film.
The CBML screening will welcome an ensemble of key players, giving audience members the opportunity to ask questions and be part of the reunion.
Screenwriter Michael Swerdlick and actors Darcy DeMoss, Courtney Gains, Devin DeVasquez, Cort McCown, Gerardo Mejia, Max Perlich and Eric Bruskotter will reunite for the first time at the screening with additional stars and filmmakers to be announced shortly. Fans can expect an introduction of the night’s guests, never before scene surprises, and a post-show Q+A.
Much gratitude to Seth for his help and support – long live Can’t Buy Me Love!

Here’s a red letter date in the history of science, November 5th, 1955.
For Back to the Future (1985) fans, today marks the exact date that Doctor Emmett Lathrop Brown stood on a toilet to hang a clock, slipped on some wet porcelain, fell and hit his head on the edge of the sink and saw a vision of the device that makes time travel possible: The Flux Capacitor.
Years later, the Flux Capacitor has reserved itself a strong place in pop culture history. There are T-shirts, replicas and even tattoos. (Note: you can’t travel back in time to get rid of a Flux Capacitor tattoo.) With all this talk of flux dispersal, how exactly does the Flux Capacitor work??
Much like a real capacitor, the idea of the FC is to disperse a massive amount of energy. With the FC, the discharge is so powerful it is able to rip the time barrier open, allowing a time vehicle to pass through this torn opening. You can see this in action here:
Powered by 1.21 jiggawats, harnessed either from a radioactive discharge or a bolt of lightning and or on board fusion generator, the capacitor is set to discharge at 88 miles per hour, sending electrical current through the external custom coils and ultimately through the flux dispersal box, located externally, above the passenger cabin. The flux dispersal box shoots electrical current forward, creating a field in front of the time vehicle, powerful enough to rip the time barrier open, allowing Deloreans and anything else in close proximity a momentary opportunity to pass through this opening into a time of your choosing, set with the time circuits.
Somehow, in the fictitious world of this 1985 classic, Doc Brown came up with this idea whilst hitting his head on a toilet. Maybe the impact was so hard that he imagined an explosion, a massive discharge of energy – and in this moment of intense pain and confusion, pictured such a burst of power as being the potential framework for a device powerful enough to rip open a temporary hole in the time barrier. GREAT SCOTT.
So, happy Flux Capacitor Day to all! Here are a few flux related pictures:
What makes an EXCELLENT Halloween costume? Like any great success, it all starts with a good idea. For many people, picking out a costume for pumpkin day can be a very personal thing. The clothes we put on every other day of the year can say something about who we are, what we like and how we want to be perceived. In a way, Halloween isn’t that much different. What’s fun about October 31st is the opportunity to be someone else for a change.
In February of 1989, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure hit theaters. Nearly two decades later, people are trick-or-treating as the dynamic time traveling duo. It’s no wonder Alex Winter just confirmed to MTV that “B&T Part 3 is on the way.” What is it about Bill and Ted that has stuck with fans after all these years? As you’ll see in the photos below, for many people, it’s about friendship. Planning a Bill and Ted costume isn’t a solo pursuit – and it isn’t limited to teenage boys. Below you’ll find people of all ages, boys and girls, friends and family – all who started with the same idea: This Halloween, let’s be excellent to each other AND, party on. Dudes.
