Love was in the air at Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s show in Baltimore, Maryland, as Springsteen presided over a proposal at his April 21st show.
Springsteen was already poised — maracas in hand — to perform “I Wanna Marry You” off The River when he invited an beyond thrilled couple up to the stage at the Royal Farms Arena.
“I’m going to turn it over to you,” he told the couple, as the prospective groom, Marc Brickman dropped to one knee and asked his girlfriend, Christine Samuelsen. if she’d do “the honor of staying with me for the rest of our lives.” As she nodded yes, he could barely contain his excitement as he handed it back over to Springstein who joined the crowd in applause announced, “You are now pronounced in the name of rock and roll, husband and wife.” What an exciting moment for any Springstein fan – the greatest moment of your life shared with your Rock ‘n Roll hero and twenty thousand new friends. Mazel Tov! Don’t forget to send the boss and invitation. Check out the video below:
Kung Fury is a 2015 Swedish martial arts comedy short film written, directed by, and starring David Sandberg. It pays homage to 1980s martial arts and police action films. The film was crowdfunded through Kickstarter from December 2013 to January 2014 with pledges reaching US$630,019, exceeding the original target goal of $200,000, but falling short of the feature film goal of $1 million. What started as an awesome trailer, got the funding to be a short length movie. It was selected to screen in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, losing to Rate Me from the UK. Forget Cannes, this movie wins Buzz Pirates Movie Trailer, Movie (short film) and Music Video of the Year. Its the most bad ass Internet thing we’ve seen in a long time. It’s also more enjoyable then most of the crap at your local theater this summer… and its free! Enough with the talk we give you… Kung Fury!
It started as a trailer…
It became a short film…
Which spawned a companion music video True Survivor by David Hasselhoff…
In light of the attention being given to famed sexist and Anti-Semite, Walt Disney who was called out by Meryl Streep on Tuesday Buzz Pirates would like to recognize the Jack Woltz from The Godfather. He was an obvious characterization of Walt Disney. This scene below has the great Godfather quote “she was the best piece of ass I’ve ever had, and I’ve had them all over the world!” When he refused to cast Johnny Fontane(an obvious characterization of Frank Sinatra) in his new movie…
Who eventually wound up with his prize thoroughbred horse’s head in his bed…

I’m begging you to watch this commercial for the drug Chantix, there’s a bunch of them on tv. Its out of control. Its a drug to stop smoking, and like 95% of the time they are just talking about the side effects which get more and more ridiculous as it goes on. Its my new favorite thing.
