Photos from Super Bowl riots look a lot like Ukraine. Obviously the situations are very different

TV Ratings: Super Bowl XLVIII Is Most-Watched in History With 111.5 Million Viewers »

Final ratings are in for the 2014 Super Bowl — and, contrary to early returns which saw the game ranking fifth, the blowout did end up being the biggest to date. An average 111.5 million viewers tuned in to see the Seattle Seahawks blow the Denver Broncos out of the water, making it the most-watched Super Bowl and the most-watched show in U.S. television history.
And think about it.. the most boring Super Bowl of all time with the most mediocre ads and lamest half time show getting more ratings than any other event in UNITED STATES history. That’s a lot of history.. and a lot of events that mattered much more than a game between two teams that make millions of dollars a second more than you do in a lifetime.
See here in America, we tend to ignore the important things and focus on what does not matter at all..
The sleepless in Seattle ragers most likely watched the game to see their city’s team win.. And they rioted.
Meanwhile, in the Ukraine, people took to the streets to protest what actually mattered. The scenes of fire and flame may be similar, but the issue at hand is much different. Here we get inflamed over the trivial and meaningless.. in other parts of the world, some things are still worth fighting for.
Seattle Seahawks fans celebrate by starting a small fire in the street after their team won the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII in Seattle, Washington February 2, 2014. The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 to win their first NFL championship Sunday in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
