'Cannibal Cop' Gilberto Valle's Match.com Profile Seems Fake as Hell

The New York Post is reporting that Gilberto Valle—better known as the “Cannibal Cop,” the former NYPD officer who was convicted of conspiring to cook and kill several women before having his conviction overturned—is back on online dating sites, looking for a dinner date. That’s alarming, and at least kind of funny, but based on another alleged dating profile we looked into weeks ago, it probably isn’t true.

‘The Interview’ Is Coming To Netflix Sooner Than You Think

Jon Negroni

the interview netflixSeth Feigerman | Mashable:

Netflix is the latest company to offer up The Interview on demand. 

The online video service announced Tuesday that it will offer The Interview, which it dubbed “the controversial comedy,” to its subscribers in the United States and Canada for no additional charge starting on Jan. 24. Google Play, Xbox and Apple TV previously offered the movie for purchase after the movie was pulled from many theaters following threats from hackers.

That’s this weekend.

Glad I waited to watch this, then. From what I’ve heard, paying for this movie would have probably felt like a waste.

Anika Noni Rose Nabs TV/Film Rights to ‘Bone Street Rumba’

Black America Web

Tony Award-winning actress Anika Noni Rose has optioned TV/Film rights to Daniel José Older’s urban fantasy book series Bone Street Rumba.

The first installment, Half-Resurrected Blues, was published on January 6 by Penguin’s Roc Books imprint and centers on character Carlos Delacruz, an agent in the “New York Council Of The Dead.” He’s a so-called in-betweener, living in a kind of purgatory after his own death, and he encounters others in a similar demi-monde.

The second installment, Midnight Taxi Tango, is slated for release next January.

Publishers Weekly dubbed Older a “rising star of the genre.” He also has Shadowshaper, a YA title, about to come out as well.
Rose optioned the work through her Roaring Virgin Productions company.

Your Mind Is My Playground

The Fickle Heartbeat


Shared by Stumbling For Balance.

Your mind is my playground. I slide down your thoughts. Some steeper than others. I teeter totter on your emotions, while they go up and down. I play tag with your opinions. Not always agreeing but when I get caught I understand. I run freely through the jungle gym in your mind. And I have for awhile now. I know it you like I know the seasons. And each time I climb I get a little higher. As I gain your trust I become more familiar with the world inside your head that is you.

Your mind is like my playground. Filled with excitement and surprises I would never expect. It keeps me on edge. Like going through a haunted house. The thrill you seek when things jump out at you – the laughter and the screams. Inside your mind are the words…

SNL Season 40, Episode 11 Review

Live From New York It Is...

Kevin Hart brought in a new year of Saturday Night Live in proper fashion, delivering another solid performance as host less than two years after last hosting. Hart, sticking true to his stand-up persona, successfully managed to bring enough energy and laughs to the show for it to be deemed a success, even without many stand out hilarious moments. In fact, most of the notable moments of the night had nothing to do with Hart and weren’t even particularly funny moments from the show, but instead were topical or just plain odd. Still, SNL opened the second half of their season with a good effort.

Opening the show was a skit featuring Pete Davidson as a student struggling to write an essay about martin Luther King. For some inexplicable reason, Kenan Thompson comes out as Martin Luther King, Jr. talking to Pete’s character about modern society and how far it…
