Links of the Day

Dom Deluise Dead at 75 - Sad day in the comedy world as comedian Dom DeLuise, probably after a year plus long fight with cancer. Dom was in multiple movies and TV programs over the years including The Cannonball Run, Smokey and the Bandit II, An American Tail, and many others. "I was thinking the other day about this. As you get older you think about this more and more, I was dreading this moment. Dom always made everyone feel better when he was around. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I will miss him very much," Burt Reynolds says.

AIG Bonuses 3x Bigger - Remember those bonuses that AIG claimed were critical to the company (and mostly going to the division that necessitated the bailout)? Yeah turns out that $120 million was off just a bit. The real value was $454 million. Yep, nothing like corporate America to let you fail forward once you get at a certain executive level.

Wolverine Sequel in the Works - After a healthy world wide opening weekend of around $160 million, Hugh Jackman is ready to move ahead on a sequel. Right now it’s in the idea phrase with Jackman indicating he wouldn't mind doing a story on Logan's Samurai background from the comics.

Auto Tune the News - Funny video that uses new click and Kanye West's favorite music tool to make it seem if footage from news programs is "singing" along with some creative additions.
