"So tonight, 12 leggy blondes walked up to me in a Hollywood bar. I chose the best three."
"Walking around Lake Como. Four women on my arm. None of them wants Pitt."
"Feeling pissed that Michael Douglas got Matt Damon to kiss him before he kissed me."
No, I am not fantasizing about my life. I am fantasizing about George Clooney's tweets. If he ever chose to emit any, that is.
Sadly for humanity, this is unlikely to ever happen. Clooney has expounded on his revulsion toward Twitter.
Hair, makeup, and gender-bending fashions aside, what singer/songwriter Boy George does best is write a prime pop tune. I'm thinking about chart-topping '80s singles like "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," "Time (Clock of the Heart)," "I'll Tumble 4 Ya," "Church of the Poison Mind," "Karma Chameleon," "Miss Me Blind," "It's a Miracle," and "The War Song." His later, more dance-oriented solo material and DJ gigs won a club following.
With the March 25 release of "This Is … Read more
Iconic "Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill fielded questions on Reddit on Wednesday, revealing bits about his role as Luke Skywalker and whether he will appear in the next "Star Wars" film directed by J.J. Abrams.
Below are highlights culled from his Ask Me Anything interview.
On whether Hamill expected "Star Wars" to be such a critical success:
"I didn't expect it to be a critical success. I thought people would like it, because it took so many elements from movies we were familiar with -- pirate, cowboy movies, war movies -- … Read more
Let the Wookiee tweet! On his official Twitter account TheWookieeRoars, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew recently gave followers a treat by captioning rare production photos of his time filming the original "Star Wars" films, "A New Hope," and "The Empire Strikes Back."
Guccifer does not discriminate. He (or she, or they) has hacked far and wide -- getting into the e-mail accounts of people as diverse as Colin Powell, Leonardo DiCaprio, and journalist Tina Brown. And, a new report from The Smoking Gun shows that the hacker's security breaches have been even more prolific than previously thought.
Dozens of people had their e-mail accounts and Web sites hacked by Guccifer. Not only has he amassed quite a spreadsheet of phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and home addresses, but he's also nabbed documents, personal drawings, and correspondences -- such as doodles by … Read more
Say the words "The Star Wars Holiday Special" around a group of geeks, and you'll most likely be met with guttural groans and a lot of glares. The 97-minute TV special debuted on November 17, 1978 (making this its 35th-anniversary year), and never aired again. Many fans, as well as director George Lucas, would prefer to pretend the Wookiee- and disco-saturated show never existed, but I watch it every year as a holiday tradition to amuse myself and horrify my friends.
The infamous TV special aired on CBS, parent company of CNET. It featured not only the iconic "Star Wars" characters Chewbacca, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, C-3PO and R2-D2, but also new characters like Chewie's wife Malla, his son Lumpy, and his father Itchy. If that's not intriguing enough, we get "Golden Girls" actress Bea Arthur playing Ackmena the cantina bartender; "The Carol Burnett Show" veteran Harvey Korman playing a myriad of bizarre characters; and actor Art Carney as electronics salesman Saun Dann and friend to the Wookiees. … Read more
A California senator plans to introduce a new bill that would require smartphones to enable a "kill switch," a security feature that would make a phone inoperable if it's stolen.
Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) announced Thursday that he will introduce the bill at the start of the 2014 legislative session in January, with the support of San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón.
"One of the top catalysts for street crime in many California cities is smartphone theft, and these crimes are becoming increasingly violent," Leno said in a press release. "We … Read more
Watching George Takei play a video game is just about as adorable as watching a newborn fawn walk for the first time -- only a lot more entertaining.
The "Star Trek" actor laughs his way through multiple levels of Maro Party 4 on actress Felicia Day's retro-gaming show "Co-Optitude" on Geek and Sundry's YouTube channel.
After Takei had Day as a guest on "Takei's Take," his new YouTube talk show about social media and technology, it was only fitting that he co-star on the YouTube show that Day normally co-hosts with her brother Ryon Day. … Read more
At Microsoft Research Redmond -- one of 13 labs worldwide, with locations from Beijing and Banglaore to Cairo and Cambridge -- there exists Studio 99, an art space that mashes up data and coding with creative expression. It was a perfect place for James George, a computer scientist turned NYU video art professor, to embark on a three-month stint doing whatever he liked with the tools and staff available at one of the most advanced technology playgrounds on the planet.
"The first week I was here, I really had no plan," George explained in a Microsoft Research interview. &… Read more
