FINKE AND THE STINK

It’s inside baseball Hollywood style, but I am fascinated by the Nikki Finke/Deadline.com drama that has developed over the years.. if you don’t know Finke, she owns Hollywood with insults and exclusives.. she began DEADLINE.COM, and then someone came along and bought it.. she left and started her own site—nameed Nikkifinke.com of course..

Then came a legal dispute.. and then this: Apparently, on Thursday much of the new website was taken after another website, “NikkieStink.com,” published rarely seen photos and videos of Finke. It promised to publish even more if Finke didn’t stop insulting people in Hollywood.. Finke has still maintained some activity on Twitter.

Whoever owns NikkiStink.com also bought a .net and .org.

NIKKISTINK reminded us of some of the ‘nasty’ comments that Finke has broadcast in the past. Among them (and try NOT to laugh):
Nathan Fillion: “If he gets any fatter, he’s going to need his own channel”

Kate Hudson: “Someone give Kate a cookie: I know the mags said she was fat 3 years ago, but jeez”

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger: “both seeing the same plastic surgeon for frequent facelift discounts”

Billy Crystal: “His face looks like it was ironed – and I swear I can still see the scorch marks”

Dustin Hoffman: “Remember when (he) was funny?  Before Botox froze his features”

John Travolta’s: “triple chin”

As far as who owns the STINK version of Finke? The TIMES tells us that everyone in Tinseltown is a suspect..

And all of this may lead to Finke returning to journalism and again working for other people.

Cruel stuff.

Hollyweird indeed.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
