…Everybody has to change, or they expire. Everybody has to leave, everybody has to leave their home and come back so they can love it again for all new reasons.
I want to keep my soul fertile for the changes, so things keep getting born in me, so things keep dying when it is time for things to die. I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not to read the same page recurrently.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson 1958-2009

By: Eddie Jenkins

Today the world lost an enigmatic, troubled legend the likes of which the music industry will most likely never see again. Michael Jackson’s ever changing appearance from his skin color to the ever morphing construct of his face, his unusual public behavior and his ebullient concerts will forever be linked to the legend of the King of Pop. It is unfortunate that his legacy will be forever tarnished by insidious acts he may or may not have committed against innocent children. With that shadow of a doubt today I will jam to some Michael Jackson tunes and remember how I begged my mom for a Thriller jacket to no avail and how my five year-old self use to walk around the house doing my best to moonwalk and mimic Jackson’s gyrations.

Christian Bale Not Optimistic About Third Batman Film

By: Eddie Jenkins

After the mind-blowing success of last year’s The Dark Knight the Internet has been abuzz with casting and plot rumors for the next Batfilm.  There is only one problem with this—director/writer Christopher Nolan has not committed or even talked about making a new Batflick.

To further dampen the hopes of fans salivating for another Nolan helmed Batman film Christian Bale stated several times, in a interview with MTV promoting his upcoming feature Public Enemies, that he was unsure if another Batman film will be made.

Unlike Nolan, Bale is contractually bound to appear in the next film.

Johnny Depp Says Yes To Riddler … If Asked

By: Eddie Jenkins

Rumors have be going around the Interwebs for months that Johnny Depp would be playing Edward Nashton, better known as the Riddler, in the next Batflick.  However not a peep has come out of the Depp or Bat camp until now.  While doing some press recently for his new film Public Enemies (also starring Batman himself Christian Bale) Depp was asked outright if he would be the Riddler in the followup to The Dark Knight, and he said, “I’d definitely juggle it.”  He is not exactly signing his name in blood on Warner Bros. dotted line but at least he is letting it be known that he is indeed interested in the part if the part is available.

Zack Morris on Jimmy Fallon

By: Eddie Jenkins

I saw a picture before this aired and simply thought, “Wow that is a really good Photoshop job.” I watched Fallon any way to check to see what Mark-Paul Gosselaar had been up to since his Bayside days.  What I got was one of the most surreal TV viewing experiences of my life.  Honestly MPG and Rob Lowe should start a club for people that haven’t aged a day after 20.
