A thirsty Thursday, but not a wonderful sequel.

NEWS FROM THE WORLD THAT IS. Seconds ticking away. The world that was.

This entire idea makes me sick.. The Slaying of Sandy Hook is a new game you're sure to hear about. The game allows you to reenact Adam Lanza's murderous rampage of innocent children .. A timer ticks down while you shoot the stick figures--the time representing the moment police arrive. You also get compared to the actual kill amount from Sandy Hook.. And to make the game even more insulting to humanity: You can play the game in 'gun control mode' ..

Another stake in the heart of the 1990s and Internet infancy: AOL is now officially going to shut down Winamp. Blockbuster closing killed the 1980s, Winamp's death kills the 1990s once and for all (with Geocities gone, it was already on life support). I get new technology comes and old goes.. but pause in a brief moment of silence for Winamp. It served us well when the days of the net were new.. It did good.


It's not such a wonderful life.. A sequel is planned to the classic Christmas movie. And Paramount may take legal action! They are attempting to block the sequel to IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE because they own the rights to the 1946 classic.. Florida-based Star Partners and Hummingbird Prods already was lining up a cast and crew. Hopefully their life stays wonderful--but actually I also anticipate this movie may not get made. And should it? I say no.
It never really was a wonderful life anyway.

For this reason, AURA temporarily vacated the facility and ceased science activities at this location."AURA said it was their decision to vacate...
The sheriff in town offers a different opinion, of course.. initially when the facility closed Benny House told …

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet.

No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
