Sweets name list
They say that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but surely a rose would smell even sweeter if it had a kickass name like Goodbye Burger City. As it turns out, that was apparently one of the alternate title that Universal suggested for George Lucas’ American Graffiti, according to /Film’s Peter Sciretta. Other suggestions included The Hot Time, Kids, and simply Burger City (no “Goodbye”). The letter Sciretta posted on Twitter comes from Taschen’s The Star Wars Archives, and it acknowledges that all of these suggestions are “dreadful.” However, we think there are some real winners in there that shouldn’t have been ignored. American Graffiti is a fine title, but it is not a better title than 1962 Was Some Year, The Fast And The Deadly, The Cherry Coke Summer, Look Back Once, Pals ‘N Gals, Supercola, Buddies, The Toy Dreams Gone, or Make-Out. All of those names are perfect and wonderful and deserved to be the name of some … [Read more...] about Say goodbye to Burger City with this list of very good alternate titles for
Rocco the African grey parrot doesn't have the usual sort of G-rated animal rescue story. The stray bird came into the care of the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) charity in the UK in late 2017 and soon showed his love of swear words. Rocco has since developed a charming new habit: talking to an Amazon Alexa Echo assistant.NAWT says Rocco caused "a few issues initially in the office, by swearing regularly and throwing his water bowl around." Staff member Marion Wischnewski adopted the cute troublemaker anyway. The rescue group wants everyone to know Rocco was not kicked out of the shelter, but that he needed a special foster situation due to his bad language.NAWT reported on Friday that Rocco has "fallen in love" with Wischnewski's Alexa device. Impressive parrots Tech-savvy parrot sounds off with pitch-perfect 'OK, Google' beep Parrot named 'Einstein' makes perfect sci-fi sound effects Wischnewski told The Sun she has to check her Amazon shopping list and cancel … [Read more...] about Cussing rescue parrot forges sweet Amazon Alexa friendship
AVQ&A Welcome back to AVQ&A, where we throw out a question for discussion among the staff and readers. Consider this a prompt to compare notes on your interface with pop culture, to reveal your embarrassing tastes and experiences. As we wind down 2018, our best-of coverage continues with the following question: What’s missing from our list of the year’s best TV? Kyle Fowle There’s hardly reason to argue with almost any year-end list these days because of the sheer number of good TV shows out there, but I’m genuinely surprised that HBO’s High Maintenance didn’t make our list. The second season of the HBO run keeps with the anthology-esque spirit of the show, but it goes deeper in ways surprising and touching. So, there’s still the random characters that populate New York and The Guy’s life, but what’s different this time around is a narrative through-line involving The Guy’s ex. That character arc, one of pain and … [Read more...] about What’s missing from our list of 2018’s best TV?
This fall, in addition to Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, Shonda Rhimes is launching the show. The Catch stars cutie Damon Dayoub. Additionally, a new light-eyed man named Kendrick Sampson will be seen over on HTGAWM, and a possible new McDreamy is coming to Grey’s Anatomy. As new beautiful men join Shonda’s horn of plenty of fineness, we at Jezebel decided it was time for a semi-comprehensive list of the hottest baes Shondaland has to offer. Grain of salt: if ABC and Rhimes’ production relationship continues at this clip, she’ll be running all of their programing by 2017 and we’ll have to reconfigure this round-up. So without further ado (and before it’s obsolete), here is a list of Shondaland’s baes, ranked and curated on hotness, smart political commentary and shameless objectification. Sorry, mom. JESSE WILLIAMS, THE G.O.A.T., as Jackson Avery Grey’s Anatomy As not only the prettiest man on this list, … [Read more...] about The Definitive List of Shondaland’s Hottest Baes
