Magic 8-Ball Movie Remakes

I'm not making this up:  Paramount Pictures is working on making a movie based on the Magic 8 Ball. Yup...that little round fortune teller is getting a movie of his (or her) own. Apparently GI Joe was so successful they want to keep working with Mattel, and the Magic 8 Ball is the first thing that came to mind. (Read about it here.) Apparently they want it to be an action movie. Huh? I can't really imagine that. Instead I pondered what would happen if you remade some old movies, and included a Magic 8 Ball element.

Wizard of Oz

Dorothy and Toto have just been sent on their merry way, when they come to a fork in the yellow brick road. Dorothy: "Follow the yellow brick road... Well now which way do we go?" Scarecrow: That way is a very nice way..but that one is pleasant too. Perhaps we should consult the Magic 8 ball you have in your basket." Dorothy: Good idea! (Shakes ball, looks at it). "Reply hazy. Ask again later." --

Gone With The Wind

Scarlett: (upon hearing Rhett is leaving her) "Where shall I go? What shall I do? Will you ever come back?" Rhett: "Frankly my dear, "  shaking Magic 8 ball, "Don't count on it." --

The Graduate

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?" Mrs. Robinson: (puts down her glass of vodka and grabs the Magic 8 Ball) "Signs point to yes." Coming soon: Classic Movie Remakes, the Rubik's Cube versions.

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The...
