ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

You have probably heard of the latest Internet fad that (unlike planking or leisure diving) is actually for a good cause. A Boston College athlete, Pete Frates, was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gherig's Disease, and started the challenge for people to dump buckets of ice on their heads or donate one hundred dollars for ALS awareness. Now, granted many people did both, but it's just so cool how fast it spread. For example, I challenged Jimmy Fallon. He did it, but claimed it was because of Justin Timberlake's challenge. I think we all know it was because of me, right? Here are some of my favorite ones, starting with my own:

Bill Gates:

Mickey Rourke:

Ricky Gervais:

Amy Adams and Henry Cavill:

Justin Timberlake:

Tina Fey:

Kermit the Frog:

Homer Simpson:

Tracey Wigfield:

David Ortiz:
New England Patriots:

Roger Federer:
Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, Steve Higgins, Horatio Sanz, and Rob Riggle:
Zach Braff:
Russell Crowe:
Hugh Jackman:
Chris Pratt:
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner:
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor:
Ashton Kutcher and Wilmer Valmerrama
Will Arnett:
Drew Barrymore and Chris Miller:
Kim Kardashian and Ellen DeGeneres:
Seth Meyers:

Fun and for a good cause!

Baloo Murray

The cast of Disney's live-action version of The Jungle Book continues to grow! And I might I add, it has been exceptional so far. Bill Murray was cast to be the voice of Baloo, joining Christopher Walken as King Louie, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Lupita Nyong'o as Raksha, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, and Neel Sethi as Mowgli. Each person cast has a voice that definitely fits the character so that is a really exciting aspect! I wonder what it will look like.

Chuck and Sarah Together Again

An entertaining part of Zachary Levi's 2014 Comic-Con influence was the conversation he had with Yvonne Strahovski as a part of The Nerd Machine's Nerd HQ. It's great to see the people of Chuck together again and who knows? Maybe Adam Baldwin was just around the corner.

Brian Scalabrine Is Coming Home

While it may not be Sports Illustrated, Comcast Sports Network New England still had the exclusive story of retired NBA player, Brian Scalabrine's long awaited return to the Boston Celtics. In the piece written by Scal, he talks about what it means to be returning to the city for journalistic purposes. I just love everything about this, it's probably the greatest thing ever, but people are still evaluating Tina Fey on 30 Rock for that honor. Nevertheless, if you want to, the full article can be read by clicking on any part of this sentence.

Mets Bucket Hat Guy at Citi Field!

At a recent New York Mets guy at Citi Field, recurring character on The Tonight Show and Late Night (both with Jimmy Fallon), Mets Bucket Hat Guy made an appearance to rap the lineup for the night's game! How cool is that? Shoutout to Mike DiCenzo!

Bears and Crows

At a zoo in Budapest, a bear practiced a very heartwarming act of kindness. The bear was not really caring about the drowning crow, but eventually, he, or she, went over to the corner of the body of water and scooped the crow out by the paw. The crow is shocked at first and the bear simply returns to its prior activities. A terrific video!

The Fifth Season of Arrested Development Is Coming

Arrested Development's long-awaited season five is coming! And it's been confirmed by both Will Arnett and Netflix chief content officer, Ted Sarandos. Arnett said the fifth season will be in the near future and Sarandos said it's "just a matter of when." Now, this is very exciting news because we just know Mitch Hurwitz is going to right any wrongs there might have been in season four, but still I cannot wait! I wonder if this will lead into the movie which will lead into a sixth season or just a movie that closes the run. Nevertheless, we still get more Arrested Development and that is no doubt a blessing.
