That Would Make Church & Temple More Interesting

Sometimes, you just have to take a stab at it, right?

You're on Jeopardy!, the Final Jeopardy category is Hymns, and the answer is a doozy:

A Christian hymn and a Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical
 
The correct question: What is "Rock of Ages?"

Choyon Manjrekar had a very unusual - and incorrect - question that has since gone viral.

Check it out...

Jonny Quest Going Live?

In the 1960s, the folks at Hanna-Barbera produced an animated series called Jonny Quest about the adventures of a boy scientist.

It featured Jonny and his dog Bandit, his friend Hadji, his dad and their all-around tough guy, Race Bannon.

It only lasted a couple of seasons, but it spawned a few attempts at being remade.

And now, Robert Rodriguez (of Sin City fame, among others) is teaming up with a screenwriter from Pirates of the Caribbean to come up with a live action movie.

If this were 30 years ago, Johnny Depp would make the perfect Jonny Quest... That doesn't mean he won't be playing it now, of course.

Doctor Bon Jovi, I Presume?

"I sat down and wrote you a song."

That's the gift Jon Bon Jovi gave to graduates at the Camden campus of Rutgers University.

The university conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters, and as part of his subsequent commencement address, he picked up his guitar.

The song, called "Reunion," urged graduates "to go start your own revolution, and I'll see you at the reunion."

It was the first time it was ever performed in front of an audience.

I can see it getting played a lot more, can't you?

Drop & Give Them Twenty!

Jon Stewart posted a video of himself doing 20 pushups recently?

Why?

To raise awareness about America's veterans by dropping and giving them twenty, and posting it to social media and GiveThem20.org.
 
It doesn't cost you anything - just a few minutes of your time, and calling out two friends to do the same.

Jon called out John Oliver and the New York Mets - which I'm pretty sure represents more than one person, but hey, he's Jon Stewart, and he can do what he likes.

Jon accepts the #GiveThem20 challenge with 20 push-ups for veterans and calls out John Oliver and the New York Mets. ? Visit givethem20.org and American Corporate Partners (ACP) to join him and thank returning veterans.

Your mom. Home unexpectedly from a tour of duty in the Navy.

The video says it all...

Have Love & Mercy

There's a movie hitting the theaters on June 5 that's sort of flying under the radar, dwarfed by some of the blockbusters that will open the summer season.

Love & Mercy is the story of Brian Wilson, one of the driving forces of the Beach Boys.

They've got two actors playing the same guy - John Cusack and Paul Dano.

Watch the trailer, and then watch the interview Variety magazine posted last fall with the actors in the movie.

And make an appointment for early June - this one looks pretty good.

Say It Ain't So, Mary-Kate and Ashley

Well, gang, it's official.

The Olsen twins - Mary-Kate and Ashley - will not be joining the Full House sequel called Fuller House on Netflix.

John Stamos, who will make guest appearances on the show as well as produce it, said he was heartbroken on Twitter, and then posted this. They say it's so they can concentrate on their fashion line and other busines ventures.

Personally, I think it's becaue they stopped looking like twins about 15 years ago.

(By the way, John, you got "disappointed" wrong. But you are heartbroken, so I guess it's understandable.)

Game of Thrones: The Musical

On Thursday's Red Nose Day USA special on NBC, Chris Martin and Cold Play put together a 12-minute documentary video about their efforts to get their newest work, "Game of Thrones: The Musical," onto a Broadway stage.

Okay, it's a spoof, but so well done. Plus, they had the help of a quite a few cast members from Game of Thrones, including Mark Addy (Robert Barateheon), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow).

The narration by Liam Neeson really helps sell it.

And Jon Snow singing "Wildling" to Ygritte (Rose Leslie) could well be the best part of it.

Check it out.
