Bruce Springsteen Says You are Now Pronounced, in the Name of Rock’n’Roll, Husband and Wife!

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 – the Awesomely Over the Top, Comedy Action Movie Trailer that Became a Real Short Film – See it Here!

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…

10 Questions Reporters Should Have Asked Derek Jeter After His Last Game at Yankee Stadium

Last night future hall of famer Derek Jeter played baseball for the last time ever in Yankee Stadium. It was an emotional game that the finest Hollywood screenwriters could not have scripted better, with Jeter hitting a walk-off game winning hit to the opposite field in the bottom of the ninth. His career at Yankee stadium ended perfectly – doing exactly what we have loved watching him do for the last 20 years. Derek, who is renowned for his professionalism and ability to keep his emotions under control, fielded questions from reporters in a press conference after the game. He told reporters “I’d probably be losing it right now. You guys are just asking the wrong questions”. So in honor of the Yankee Captain’s retirement, we proudly present the 10 Questions that reporters SHOULD have asked Mr. Jeter.

1. They say a man is known for the company he keeps. How does it feel to have a permanent seat upon the alter of Baseball’s Cathedral among legends Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio, and Berra?

2. You will never again hear Bob Sheppard’s famous voice echoing “Now batting for the Yankees…number two….Derek Jeter….number two” in a regulation game. Do you have a recording of that at home and will you listen to it?

3. The New York Times estimates that you have swung the bat 342,000 times in practice or in games. While impressive, this number is minuscule compared to the number of people you’ve influenced or inspired. For 20 years, 2745 games, every game you’ve played in NY, across the country, or around the world, countless fans cherished the opportunity to watch you play. How does it feel to know that for each and every single time you have swung a baseball bat during your career, you have influenced the lives of thousands of people?

4. What will go through your mind the next time you drive under the subway down River Ave. and look up to see Yankee Stadium for the first time as fan and not a player?

5. Your exemplary career has always been held in high regard by the media (which is especially remarkable in NY) and by the Yankees organization. If George Steinbrenner was here today, what would he say after the dramatic ending of your career at Yankee Stadium?

6. Your dedication and professionalism has made you just as famous off the field as your performance on the field. How does it feel to honored as one of the greatest professional athletes in ANY sport….not just by fans, but by peers in the NFL, NHL, NBA, and organizations and celebrities around the globe…. even God?

7. Several years from now, an all-star shortstop for the New York Yankees will ritualistically bless a sign hanging in the Yankee clubhouse before every game with a quote from Derek Jeter. What will it say?
I want to thank the good lord for making me a Yankee

8. How does it make you feel to know that the next time you hold a #2 Yankee jersey will probably be when they hang it next to #6 in Monument Park?

9. What words of wisdom will you give the next Yankee Captain who, without your influence, might have never played baseball past 3rd grade?

10. Your character has already earned you a place in Heaven. Your contribution to baseball will immortalize you for eternity among the Ghosts of Yankee Stadium. Which one do you choose? (we’ll let this one slide and go with “both”)!

On behalf of fans around the world, we thank you Derek Jeter for 20 years of dedication and inspiration. The game of baseball is better because of you.

15 Best Jack Donaghy Quotes – Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock

30 Rock might be the funniest show on television right now… ok top 5? Well, the best part about it is Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, the Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming for General Electric and Liz Lemon’s (played by Tina Fey) friend and boss. 30 Rock’s season premiere is tonight and here are his 15 best quotes from the show so far. Are we missing any?

15. C’mon Lemon, what do we elites do when we screw up? We pretend it never happened and give ourselves a giant bonus.

14. “Donaghy saves GE… marries your mom”

13. Jack Donaghy: You have to fire ten percent of your staff.
Liz Lemon: What?
Jack Donaghy: We have to synergize backward overflow.

12. Lemon: “I’m feeling pretty drunk.”
Jack: “Well, it’s business drunk, it’s like rich drunk. Either way, it’s legal to drive.”

11.  Being in a relationship means overlooking certain flaws. I mean, somewhere right now a guy is on a J-Date with Monica Lewinsky. Nobody’s perfect.

10. Jack: Alfredo’s, 2 PM.
Liz Lemon: I’m not dressed for that.
Jack: You’re dressed for Burger King. Should we make it Burger King?

9. Jack: One minute you’re newlyweds, making love on the floor of the Concorde. Then, before you know it, your lawyers are arguing over who gets to keep the box your dog defecates in.
Liz Lemon: You taught your dog to poop in a box?
Jack: Bianca did. But, damn it, I want that box.

8. Jack Donaghy: Now let me hear you say the seven most important words in the American judicial system.
Frank Rossitano: My client has no memory of that.
Jack Donaghy: I also would have accepted ‘You can’t prove that’s the Governor’s semen’.

7. Jack: I haven’t met your boyfriend.
Liz Lemon: His name’s Floyd.
Jack: That’s unfortunate.

6. Kenneth Parcell: “Oh, uh, no, sir. I don’t vote Republican or Democrat. Choosing is a sin, so I always just write in the Lord’s name!”
Jack: “That’s Republican. We count those.”

5. Jack: I like when a woman has ambition. It’s like seeing a dog wearing clothes.

4. [Jack is in a museum facing a painting, waiting for Liz Lemon to meet him there. Liz appears behind him without announcing her arrival]
Jack: You’ve been avoiding me, Lemon.
Liz Lemon: How do you do that, without turning around?
Jack: To be perfectly honest, the first couple of people I did that to were not you, but… here we are.

3. Liz Lemon: Hey Jack, do you treat me any differently because I’m a woman?
Jack Donaghy: Well, I pay you a little less, yes.

2. Jack: “The Italians have a saying, Lemon: ‘Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.’ And, although they’ve never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.”

1. Lemon: “Why are you wearing a tux?”
Jack: “It’s after 6. What am I, a farmer?”
