The Entertation Index: May 16

May 16, 2011

Ferrell, Colin — The Irish actor paired with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres last week to dress as vampires, hide in a public restroom and surprise people. Sources close to comedian Andy Dick say he’s not very happy that someone is stealing his moves.

Lynch, David — The idiosyncratic director has allegedly finished his first full recording of electronic music and will be appearing via Skype during the Ibiza International Music Summit to discuss it on May 26.  The interview will reportedly “focus on Lynch’s music production, including the full-length album that’s expected to see release later this year.” As is also to be expected from David Lynch, said album is not meant to be listened to, but instead worn as a hat.

Realities, Alternative — British novelist Sam Leith, a former writer for the UK’s Guardian, dropped back by his old employer this week to detail the “top ten alternative realities,” which include Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and Ray Bradbury’s A Sound of Thunder. Hold on…wait. You mean the world where people like you and I are eating pizza rolls while Khloe Kardashian has her own television show and Snookie is a best-selling novelist isn’t an alternative reality? This is terrible, terrible news.

Says, $#*! My Dad — CBS has sharpened its axe and felled three of 2010’s freshman TV offerings. Gone is  the Jerry O’Connell/Jim Belushi courtroom dramedy The Defenders and midseason replacement Mad Love. Also gone is the William Shatner vehicle $#*! My Dad Says — which means that CBS listened to $#*! television audiences said.

Seal Team 6 — Remember those brave military heroes who brought down Osama Bin Laden? Disney’s going to make billions of dollars off them. On May 3, Disney allegedly filed the appropriate paperwork for exclusive use of “Seal Team 6”  in a host of products and merchandise from toys to footwear and electronic games to Christmas tree ornaments. Also reportedly in the works: an animated musical about six adorable and determined sea lions who raid a coral reef and shoot a villainous octopus in the head.

Shorr, Matt — Big ups to our very own Matt Shorr for marrying the lovely Ms. Angie Madden last night in the lovely and far-away land of Hawaii. There are good people in this world, and there are people on an even higher plane. These two are on a higher plane, and I hope you’ll join me in congratulating them on many happy years to come.
