The Entertation Index: December 10
Cruise, Tom – 2013 will herald the premiere of Cruise’s new apocalyptic sci-fi movie Oblivion. NOTE: this is indeed a sci-fi film, and NOT a documentary about Cruise’s film career in the past 3 or 4 years.

Jones, Indiana – The most exciting thing about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may be a lawsuit by the Director of the Institute of Archeology of Belize. On behalf of that country, Dr. Jaime Awe is suing the Mitchell-Hedges family for allegedly removing the actual skull, which is rumored to have supernatural properties, from Belizean ruins 88 years ago; and is suing Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Co., and Paramount Pictures, for illegally profiting from the skull’s likeness. An intrepid academician trying to stop evil corporations from profiting from a stolen ancient artifact imbued with strange powers? Sounds like an Indiana Jones movie to me!

Kardashian, Kim – Just months after receiving her as a gift from boyfriend Kanye West, Kim’s kitten Mercy has died. The cause of death was reportedly a cancer-like viral disease, but many suspect that Mercy ended her own life after finding out she was owned by Kim Kardashian.

Manchin, Joe – The US Senator from West Virginia has asked MTV to cancel Buckwild, a reality show that focuses on what Manchin calls “poor decisions of our youth” and other negative stereotypes of West Virginians. It is unknown if Manchin also called for the cancelation of Jersey Shore, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Real Housewives of Everywhere, and all other show that rely on stereotypes of people who are not from his own state.

Sheeran, Ed – The British musician was so surprised that his “The A Team” was nominated for a Song of the Year Grammy, that he was already drunk when he got the call. Sheeran is in good company, since the people responsible were probably drunk when they nominated him.

Swift, Taylor – The country music darling is moving on from former beau Conor Kennedy with One Direction member Harry Styles. This is to be expected, since Swift just released best-seller Red and needs to start gathering material for her next album.
