John Berry

Founder of "The Beastie Boys" dies from a rare from a rare form of dementia on May 20th 2016 at the age of 52.

According to his father, John had been suffering for several years from
frontotemporal  Dementia.  Which shrinks brain tissues and leads to changes in personality and behavior, and difficulties with language.

He passed away in a hospice in Danvers.


Lack of Common Sense Leads to Death:

  She parked her car on a busy highway and a man & daughter were killed when the motorcycle hit the car. The idiot stopped to help two baby ducklings. These animal activist people think that they are high and mighty. She had zero regard for any human being, just those stupid ducklings. What an idiot. She was shocked by the guilty verdict? Really? Did her brain take a leave of absence? I do not think that she had any common sense to begin with. What of the victims? What about the wife and mother of those two? A man and his teen daughter were killed, because the idiot parked her car on the highway. Did she even put the hazard lights on? I doubt it. Why didn't she just pull over, or leave the ducks be? They may have made their way off the road on their own power. This moron was trying to catch them. I hope she does get life in prison. She may or may not feel bad enough as it is, but it will surely giver her time to reflect upon her stupidity and carelessness. Were that me, I would most likely have been beaten to death by someone or convicted and executed. This person is just a plain waste of space. People make moronic decisions all the time. Many do it with little regard for themselves or others. I hope that this is a wake-up call to many of these animal rights nut jobs. I love and respect animals as much as the next person, but I am not idiotic or careless enough to park my car on a busy street or highway. My deepest sympathies to the wife/mother of the victims. To the convicted person: look what you have done, you complete imbecile.

KickAss T.V.

The series is set 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth. The only survivors are the residents of twelve space stations in Earth's orbit prior to the war, and the descendants of the people on earth who survived the war, called "grounders" by the 100. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named "The Ark", where about 2,400 people live.[1] Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death ("floating") unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark's life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared "expendable" and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again.

The ark consist of the space stations previously representing the nations of the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, India, Russia, Venezuela, France, Brazil, and Uganda.

The 100 (pronounced "The Hundred" as opposed to "The One Hundred") is an American post-apocalyptic drama television series that is airing on The CW during the 2013–14 American television season.[2][3][4] The series is based on a book of the same name, the first in a series by Kass Morgan, and developed by Jason Rothenberg.[5] It premiered on Wednesday, March 19, 2014, following Arrow.

On May 8, 2014, The CW renewed The 100 for a second season

NetFlix Fix

Arrested Development 

 an American television sitcom created by Mitchell Hurwitz, which originally aired on Fox for three seasons from November 2, 2003 to February 10, 2006. A fourth season of 15 episodes was released on Netflix on May 26, 2013. The show follows the fictitious Bluth family, a formerly wealthy and habitually dysfunctional family, and is presented in a continuous format, incorporating handheld camera work, narration, archival photos, and historical footage. Ron Howard serves as an executive producer and the series' uncredited narrator. Set in Newport Beach, California, Arrested Development was filmed primarily in Culver City and Marina del Rey.

Since its debut in 2003, the series has received widespread critical acclaim, six Primetime Emmy Awards, and one Golden Globe Award, and has attracted a cult following, including several fan-based websites.[3] In 2007, Time listed it among the magazine's "All-TIME 100 TV Shows".[4] In 2008, the show was ranked 16th on Entertainment Weekly's "New TV Classics" list. In 2011, IGN named Arrested Development the "funniest show of all time".

Despite acclaim from critics, Arrested Development received low ratings and viewership on Fox, which canceled the series in 2006. Rumors of an additional season and a feature film persisted until 2011, when Netflix agreed to license new episodes and distribute them exclusively on its streaming video service. These episodes were later released in 2013. The script of an Arrested Development film has also been in development, with the main cast purported to reprise their original roles

KickAss Movie

This quirky science fiction comedy is a characteristic feature by iconoclastic director Tim Burton, known to moviegoers for Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. The storyline affectionately harkens back to the deadpan sincerity of such '50s and '60s science-fiction films as The Day the Earth Stood Still and War of the Worlds. Flying saucers have been reliably seen over the capitals of the world, and the whole world awaits with bated breath to see what will transpire. Among those waiting is the President of the United States (Jack Nicholson), who is assured by his science advisor (Pierce Brosnan) that the coming aliens are utterly peaceful. This advice is hotly contested by the military (led by Rod Steiger), who advices the President to annihilate them. When the aliens land, they are seen to be green, garish, and very cheerful. But appearances prove deceiving when the friendly aliens abruptly disintegrate the entire U.S. Congress. Hollywood notables appear in vast quantities in roles (and sub-plots) of all sizes in this zany feature.~ Clarke Fountain,

KickAss Food

  • HERSHEY'S Rich Cocoa Fudge Recipe

  • Ingredients

    3 cups sugar

    2/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    1-1/2 cups milk

    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. Line 8-or 9-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan. Butter foil.

    2. Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in heavy 4-quart saucepan; stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to full rolling boil. Boil, without stirring, until mixture reaches 234°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water, forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water. (Bulb of candy thermometer should not rest on bottom of saucepan.)

    3. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. DO NOT STIR. Cool at room temperature to 110°F (lukewarm). Beat with wooden spoon until fudge thickens and just begins to lose some of its gloss. Quickly spread in prepared pan; cool completely. Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature. About 36 pieces or 1-3/4 pounds.

    NOTE: For best results, do not double this recipe. This is one of our most requested recipes, but also one of our most difficult. The directions must be followed exactly. Beat too little and the fudge is too soft. Beat too long and it becomes hard and sugary.


    NUTTY RICH COCOA FUDGE: Beat cooked fudge as directed. Immediately stir in 1 cup chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts and spread quickly in prepared pan.

    MARSHMALLOW-NUT COCOA FUDGE: Increase cocoa to 3/4 cup. Cook fudge as directed. Add 1 cup marshmallow creme with butter and vanilla. DO NOT STIR. Cool to 110°F (lukewarm). Beat 8 minutes; stir in

    1 cup chopped nuts. Pour into prepared pan. (Fudge does not set until poured into pan.)


    -- Increase milk to 1-2/3 cups

    -- Use soft ball cold water test for doneness OR Test and read thermometer in boiling water, subtract

    difference from 212°F. Then subtract that number from 234°F. This is the soft ball temperature for

    your altitude and thermometer.

Today's Horoscope

The "It" Thing

The sticky phone cases are made to temporarily adhere like a suction cup to flat surfaces like mirrors, windows and tiles. This frees you from having that awkward selfie arm and it would be a whole lot easier to take group pictures this way too. As you might think, despite being able to securely grip to non-porous surfaces, the phone case itself doesn't actually feel sticky to the touch.
