When Facial Recognition Is a Bust

We all remember the statue disaster regarding soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo that was unveiled back in 2017 that was a legitimate global news story.

The comical bust that can be seen above, which was created by Emanuel Santos for a ceremony that honored the soccer star by renaming the Madeira Airport to Madeira Cristiano Ronaldo Airport in Portugal, was eventually replaced last summer. In the same spirit, ‘Late Late Show’ host James Corden decided to pull a prank just a couple of days ago along these same hilariously exaggerated (jaw) lines.

The target: James Corden’s friend and fellow Brit, David Beckham.

After Bayern Munich was eliminated from Champions League during the team’s return leg against Liverpool, which is something I am still processing, I needed to laugh.

This did the trick.

I’m Not a Fan of Scrambled Eggs. Unless…

Please say this is true. C’mon. Do it. It would be incredible!

Or, as a sophisticated French person eating caviar before attending the opera would say, “incroyable!” 

Some sitcoms just need to keep going.

In less than 24 hours, the painful reality of a live-action ‘Aladdin’ hitting the silver screen in a few months sans the late, incomparable Robin Williams was relieved–in the form of an appropriate mind game—with the news from Dr. Frasier Crane Kelsey Grammer regarding a ‘Frasier’ revival. And what’s encouraging is that it sounds like the original cast and possibly some original writers, with the exception of the late John Mahoney, may be on board to tell a genuinely exciting new chapter of the amazing NBC sitcom that ended in 2004.

We all want more of this.

And this.

“Wish me luck.”

These were the final words spoken on the ‘Frasier’ series finale. Hopefully, there will be another series finale in the future.

Upon hearing the news of a potential ‘Frasier’ revival from the man himself, we’re all wishing him and that small group of people luck on bringing ‘Frasier’ back on the air again.

When Life Is Framed Correctly

Life is funny.

This is especially true when a comedian is involved.

However, there are the occasional wild moments in life that are completely unexpected that can forever change a particular experience of ours or the trajectory of a seemingly planned-out path. It can happen when we’re least expecting it. And that “it” can be practically anything.

Like an audition for the ages.

I’m guessing that camera assistant pulled off some pretty cool angles and zooms.

The Truth Was Seen at 15,000 Feet

First:

Go. 

See. 

Mission: Impossible – Fallout. 

Figure out a way to see this surreal–yet very real–action film that takes the franchise and genre to new heights with insane twists and turns.

Second:
