Snoop Dogg doesn’t typically get as much credit as Jay-Z or Puffy for being a consummate businessman, but make no mistake about it: the D O double G has been making savvy business moves for quite some time now. Over the past few years, Snoop steadily climbed up the Forbes list by partnering up with a wide array of successful businesses, including Skullcrushers, TomTom and even Chrysler. With respect to Chrysler, you might recall this famous commercial Snoop appeared in with Lee Ioacooca a few years back.
The best animated movie of the year is six minutes long.
Over the weekend, Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj shared a new short called Borrowed Time on Vimeo. Although the short features the same impressive animation quality you’ve come to expect from the studio, this isn’t a Pixar feature. Rather, it’s a passion project that the two animators have been working on in their free time for the past five years.
Saturday Night Live over the weekend continued its comedic assault on the 2016 U.S. Presidential election with a hilarious and dead-on spoof of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s recent Town Hall debate. Per usual, Alec Baldwin was in rare form as Donald Trump as Kate McKinnon similarly reprised her solid Hillary Clinton impersonation.
As anyone who witnessed last week’s Town Hall debate can attest, it was nothing short of a trainwreck, albeit an entertaining one, that practically did nothing to illuminate the respective candidate’s positions on important issues. Instead, we were treated to child-like bickering and a smattering of colorful and meme-friendly town characters like Ken Bone.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two of the least popular presidential candidates in American history. Therefore, you can understand why some voters are looking for alternatives. In 2016, those alternatives come in the form of third-party candidates Dr. Jill Stein and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson.
Although Pokemon Go might not be as huge as it was a few months ago, it’s still one of the top grossing apps on iOS and Android and regularly finds its way into the headlines.

In yet another instance highlighting Netflix’s willingness to pay top dollar for premium content, the streaming giant recently inked a deal with Chris Rock for two new stand-up specials. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix will pay Rock $40 million for the two specials, easily making it the highest payday for a stand-up special in history.

If I were to ask you who the baddest man on the planet is, odds are that you’re not going to mention Alex Trebek. I mean, the famed Jeopardy! host is beloved by all and, as if that weren’t enough, he’s Canadian for crying out loud. One would reasonably assume that Trebek doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.
Alas, perhaps the incredibly vicious 2016 U.S. Presidential election has managed to negatively impact the best of us, even Sir Alex Trebek. Apparently in this day and age, no one is safe from ridicule, not even a friendly librarian on Jeopardy! who just wanted to answer a few questions, make a little bit of cash and listen to some nerdcore Hip-Hop on her flight back home.
We’re less than two weeks away from the premiere of The Walking Dead. Season 7 returns with the continuation of the dreadful scene that closed out season 6, when AMC decided to leave us with a terrible cliffhanger. Negan, the brand new bad guy on Walking Dead, will kill one of our favorite characters and we have no idea who that person is. Of course, there are some pretty good theories out there as far as who his victim might be.
While we wait, we have some news: Jeffery Dean Morgan, who plays Negan on the show, debunked a recent spoiler about episode 701 that originated from one of his previous interviews. More →

Disney just released a brand new trailer for Rogue One, and it’s packed full of previously unseen footage. More →
