After a long wait by me and every other Trekkie on the planet, we get a look at the new "Star Trek Into the Darkness" trailer. The talented Benedict Cumberbatch looks like a deliciously malevolent bad guy. This trailer doesn't confirm he's Kahn, but he may be since he says he's out for revenge. Capt. Kirk, Scotty, Uhura and Spock all look ready for adventure. And they're wearing a lot of leather. Don't know what that means, but I think I want one of those jackets.
Cute Animal Video: It's the ugly animal video. You've heard of humans doing the perp walk. But how about a goat doing the perp walk. Well, that's what happened in Houston, Tex. where a goat got onto a school campus and scared the students. See for yourself.
Take A Moment for Brubeck: I can't let the day go by without honoring legendary jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck. You've probably heard his song "Take Five" in a movies, commercials or jazz compilations. He would have been 92 today. He died of heart failure yesterday. He was one of the early acts that called out racists who said white artists shouldn't play at black clubs. His talent will be missed. See the Time magazine timeline on his life and work.
Christmas Video: Yes, they've both got loads of talent. Yes, they both can sing. But it's pretty obvious John Travolta and Olivia Newton John didn't bust the budget on this video from their Christmas album.
Bieber Snubbed: And Justin Bieber's manager is slamming the folks who pick the Grammy nominees. Scooter Braun says "You blew it." He perceives Beiber was snubbed. Bieber didn't earn a single nomination. An E!Online report quotes Braun as saying "The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over...this time he deserved to be recognized."
Anchorman 2 News: Collider is reporting that Kristen Wiig may be joining the cast as Steve Carell's love interest. Now how funny would that be?
