Finding Nemo Sequel’s Officially Finding Dory
Pixar movies are pretty great, and Finding Nemo is still one of the best. And of all the characters in that fish-out-of-water-then-back-in-water story, none is more endearing than the memory-challenged Dory. Which is why it's totally awesome that Disney's/Pixar's long-awaited Finding Nemo sequel has been announced as Finding Dory. Opening in theaters on November of 2015, the movie will once again feature Ellen DeGeneres as Dory, but this time at the center of the plot.Read on...
Copy of Fallout 3 Signed by Matthew Perry Resurfaces, Was Bought for $5
Video games being found that have been signed by famous folks isn't something terribly new. These signatures are often from the people that actually worked on the game, celebrities endorsing the game, or just the kid down the street that wanted to make his claim on a copy of the latest Madden title. Of all the oddities out there floating around, the copy of Fallout 3 signed by Matthew Perry is one of the weirder ones. See, Perry gave the game and an Xbox 360 to Ellen DeGeneres to auction off for charity in 2009. The copy has apparently resurfaced, and was bought for a measly $5. Poor Matthew Perry.Read on...
MI6 Hacks Al-Qaeda Website, Replaces Bomb Recipe with Cupcake Recipe
Covert intelligence services aren't particularly well-known for their sense of humor, but UK-based agency MI6 reportedly flashed a bit of the old British wit in a counterterrorism effort aimed at an Al-Qaeda web magazine. MI6 agents replaced a section on how to make a deadly sugar-based pipe bomb with a set of Ellen DeGeneres cupcake recipes.
The code, which had been inserted into the original magazine by the British intelligence hackers, was actually a web page of recipes for “The Best Cupcakes in America” published by the Ellen DeGeneres chat show. Written by Dulcy Israel and produced by Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio, it said “the little cupcake is big again” adding: “Self-contained and satisfying, it summons memories of childhood even as it's updated for today’s sweet-toothed hipsters.” It included a recipe for the Mojito Cupcake – “made of white rum cake and draped in vanilla buttercream”- and the Rocky Road Cupcake – “warning: sugar rush ahead!”Though this particular MI6 hack was humorous, the intelligence communities on both sides of the pond take seriously this particular Al-Qaeda web magazine, which is published by the influential radical preacher Anwar al-Awlaki: A former CIA analyst told the Telegraph that it was "clearly intended for the aspiring jihadist in the US or UK who may be the next Fort Hood murderer or Times Square bomber."

How Did Matthew Perry Get A Job Doing Fallout: New Vegas?
Apparently he did it by expressing his love for the franchise in the most unlikely of places: The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The View.
He was on the shows more than a year ago, promoting a movie, but while he was on Ellen he gifted his host with an Xbox and a copy of Fallout 3, saying:
I played this video game so often that I injured my hand so severely that I had to go to a hand doctor and get injections in my hand because I love this video game so much.
Apparently all that dedication (and subsequent publication of said dedication) paid off, because he'll be voicing Benny, the head of the Geckos family in Fallout: New Vegas.Read on...
