Crime, movies, Pee Wee

Pee Wee Herman

  • Paul Reubens is bringing back his live show that began in 1980, The Pee-Wee Herman Show, to an LA theater this fall. Most of the original cast and crew will be back, which I hope specifically means Laurence Fishburne.
  • A completed documentary about some guys trying to find the reclusive John Hughes is going to be released. It seems that late last week, they were suddenly able to find a distributor. It's called Don't You Forget About Me, but could also be titled You Forgot All About Me Until My Untimely Death Hit the News.
  • A Brazilian crime show host is being investigated for generating stories for his TV show by ordering killings. I wonder if that's how "Cheaters" works too.
  • A man was found guilty of groping Minnie Mouse at Disney World. The costumed victim said she "had to do everything possible to keep his hands off her breasts."
  • It's real: Bob Dylan Christmas album
  • Upcoming Hank Williams biopic. He died when he was only 29. Who could play Hank? I like Channing Tatum, who's from Alabama like Hank, if he can lose some of the beefiness. Or James Franco (too crinkly?) or Paul Dano (too baby-faced?).
  • A map of drug use across the US, by state. Vermont and Rhode Island like their drugs, North Dakota prefers binge drinking.
  • A report about the Waterfront Commission of New York, which was created to fight waterfront corruption, finds that (surprise!) it's corrupt.

Fondling Minnie Mouse - while admittedly horrible for the woman undergoing it - is about the funniest thing I've heard all day. It makes me want to kidnap Pluto and dogfight him.

A few years ago a Tigger at Disneyworld was in trouble for fondling the guests. So I guess this means it's all even?

Well, not if you count the time someone chained Piglet naked to a bed at the Polynesian Resort with a gag in his (her?) mouth after giving him some milk dosed with rohypnol.

T-Rock, you win the prize for Most Hilariously Vulgar Violation of a Beloved Childhood Creature.

You should come over sometime to see my collection of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew/Beaker slash fiction.
