I have always been a big fan of the Mario Kart games since way back in the day. They are pure video games. No long quests like the Legend of Zelda or complicated controls like Halo. No, you just drive around a crazy track and try and keep Waluigi from hitting you with a Koopa shell. They are what video games were meant to be. Plot wise there isn’t much to them. They are just one long car chase. In that they have a lot in common with the Mad Max movies. Those aren’t exactly big on plot. It’s basically people chasing each other in cars and blowing stuff up in a rough framework of a story. The latest installment, Mad Max: Fury Road, is certainly not unlike a driving video game. Except instead of bananas they use real bombs.
So, it’s not surprising that some enterprising person mashed-up Mario Kart and Mad Max. It’s a given.
Put on your (whatever you were wearing in 2011) and pop a bottle of (whatever you were drinking in 2011) and let’s go back to a time when receiving a text containing the divorce papers emoji followed by the sad face emoji from your legal piece of a year was still something that justified you never speaking to their rude asses again. “Ah, t’was a much more formal time” thought everyone who at this moment is quitting their latest Tinder piece by tagging them in a picture of a trash can on Instagram.
During an interview with the Daily Telegraph (via UsWeekly), perpetual moody teenage girl cosplayer Katy Perry admitted that she hasn’t said shit to Russell Brand since he quit their marriage via text message three and a half years ago. And it’s not like Russell Brand is desperately trying, like “Oi mate, give us a ring? We miss you“; according to Katy, he doesn’t want to talk to her either.
“He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say.”
She also went on to say that she still has the cat they adopted together, but she has since changed her name from Rusty (a combination of Russell and Katy) to Monkey.
But of course Russell hasn’t contacted Katy; he’s been too busy writing nightmare-making children’s books and being the Erin Brockovich of east London housing (I don’t know if that made any damn sense). I’m sure it would be a whole other story if Russell Brand was unemployed. Trust me on this one, her phone would be blowing up with texts that start with “U up? U want to talk? I miss u” and end with “No srsl girl, u up? I am – WINK!” if he didn’t have a job. Although something tells me she’s used to getting texts like that every time she calls it quits with John Mayer.
A note to long time readers – Buddy the Wonder Dog has passed away. He was 20 years old and a happy pappy to the end. My partner and I adopted him from a NYC shelter shortly after Sept 11 2001. He needed us, and we needed him. He was tough and unruly, and we loved him all the more for it.
When CityRag first started in 2004, Buddy’s life as a New York City rescue dog was a big part of the site. He was often recognized on streets of the East Village, competed on Gawker, and had some awesome fans. As his health slid I stopped posting about him. Blogging can change your relationship to things and I wanted to keep it real with him. Or maybe I just didn’t want to blog his decline. Buddy was an amazing dog – sweet, funny, loyal, always up for an adventure, and a badass to the end. Thanks for loving him with us.
Dianna Agron—former Glee star; current Pinterest board; enduringly beautiful woman—starred in the world premiere of McQUEEN at the St. James Theatre in London last night. The play was inspired by the “visionary imagination” of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, and Agron’s performance was inspired by a wet piece of notebook paper that suuuuckssss, according to critics.
According to this celebrity blind item, these two women from one of the ‘Real Housewives’ shows REALLY don’t like each other. Things got nasty when they encountered each other at a restaurant! Get the goss after the break.
One former Housewife and one current Housewife from different cities almost came to blows the other night at dinner. Neither knew the other was going to be there and both of them took turns walking past the table of the other saying nasty things. The current Housewife was drunk as per usual and was ready to fight right then and there.
Any guesses? Check out the reveal below by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below.
I have no idea if this particular blind item is true or not, but remember the lawsuit? I wonder whatever happened to that. I didn’t hear anything more about it after it was filed. Maybe it’s still pending. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was either quietly settled or dropped, once the implications of pursuing the lawsuit became clear. Regardless of the outcome, I’d guess these two don’t like each other. At All.
Every year, the folks at NBC run a charity campaign called Red Nose Day aimed at raising money to support children living in poverty.
The bad news? If you’re just hearing about it now, you missed it. Red Nose Day 2015 was Thursday, May 21.
The good news? I’m sure you can probably still donate money. And more importantly, this year Coldplay teamed up with a bunch of Game of Thrones stars to make a pretty funny parody video about the making of the fictitious “Coldplay’s Game of Thrones: The Musical.”
Which GOT stars are in it? Oh, just Peter Dinklge, Kit Harringon, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Rose Lesie, Mark Addy, Iwan Rheon, Alfie Allen, Charlotte Hope, John Bradley, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Diana Rigg. So you know…a few.
I’m not going to say much more about it other than to warn you that there are major spoilers. If you’re a GOT fan, you don’t need any more explanation. You’ll get all the jokes.
