    Obama: And when we talk about deficits, if we're adding to our deficit for tax cuts for folks who don't need them and we're cutting investments in research and science that will create the next Apple, create the next new innovation that will sell products around the world, we will lose that race. If we're not training engineers to make sure that they are equipped here in this country, then companies won't come here. Those investments are what's going to help to make sure that we continue to lead this world economy not just next year, but 10 years from...

  • Harris: Iron Maiden gone in 10 years

    10/16/2012 4:12:54 AM PDT · by My Favorite Headache · 33 replies
    Iron Maiden mainman Steve Harris thinks his band may have give more years left in them – but they’ll be gone within ten. His comments come just days after Rush admitted they were aware they’re likely to retire in the foreseeable future. And Harris reveals he has doubts about whether to take his solo album British Lion on the club tour he’d previously said he was thinking about. Maiden released their fifteenth studio album, The Final Frontier, in 2010. That led to speculation the band was winding down, based on comments Harris had made years earlier saying they’d make fifteen...

Quotes are regularaly thrown around, scenes referenced and a no-brainer sequel has long been discussed.

The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To. Read more after the jump.Here’s the original...

    "There's still no sign of Andrea (Laurie Holden), who got separated from the group at the end of season two. When the group discovers an abandoned prison, they think they've found a place where they can hunker down and breath easier - at least for a few days. The prison is crawling with walkers, forcing them to go on a ruthless killing mission to secure the perimeter. And you know what that means - a series of zombie kills fashioned with the kind of special effects George A. Romero could only dream of back in 1968. The monotonous killings may...

    Hollywood is known for being overwhelming left-of-center. From celebrity-led fundraisers supporting President Barack Obama's re-election campaign to incendiary rhetoric aimed against Republicans, the majority of Hollywood doesn't hide its liberal inclinations.That being said, Tinseltown isn't completely devoid of GOP enthusiasts. While they comprise a very silent minority, right-of-center celebrities exist --- and some may even surprise you. While the following list is by no means a complete picture, it is a compilation of 10 of the most interesting and surprising actors and performers who reportedly consider themselves Republicans. 1.

    R. B. Greaves, an R&B singer whose 1969 hit “Take a Letter, Maria” reached No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart, died on Thursday in Los Angeles. He was 68. His death was confirmed by his son, Shiloh Greaves. “Take a Letter, Maria,” which Mr. Greaves wrote, is about a hard-working man who dictates a “Dear Jane” letter to his secretary after coming home to find his wife “in the arms of another man.” He sings, more in acceptance than in anger: “So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife/Say I won’t be coming home, gonna start a...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Coming home from war can be one of the most difficult experiences any person goes through. But one local group says music has the power to heal even the darkest of hearts -- which is why they're on a new mission to connect soldiers to songs. Jared Midgley spent seven years of his life serving in the U.S. Army, during which he was deployed to Iraq. He says the transition to civilian life has gone well, but admits it hasn't always been easy. "You build a wall and you're kind of hard-headed," said Midgley. "Military...

    Washington, D.C. (October 8, 2012) -- TV makers continue to push 3D TV despite a lack of evidence that consumers have any interest. But one top Sony executive has finally acknowledged that fact publicly. Speaking to, Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment's UK chief, said "consumers decide how relevant (3D) is. It's fair to say consumers have decided it's not huge important at this time." The Associated Press reported this month that the number of 3D viewers in the U.S. is so small that Nielsen is unable to effectively measure them. The ratings service says the number is likely around...
