2017 Remember Me Thursday Global Pet Adoption Awareness Campaign

This month, Helen Woodward Animal Center will once again unite with animal welfare proponents and organizations worldwide for the 5th Annual Remember Me Thursday.

Honored on the fourth Thursday of September, the campaign asks pet lovers and animal rescue groups to create an unstoppable, integrated voice advocating for homeless pets to live in forever homes, not die waiting for them. Grassroots candle-lighting ceremonies and a global avalanche of social media buzz will shine a light on the millions of animals still awaiting adoption and encourage communities to opt to adopt and reduce the millions of homeless pets euthanized each year. As in previous years, some very big names are stepping forward to lend their support to the cause, including Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress, Kristin Chenoweth, who has been named the 2017 Official Spokesperson for the campaign. Helen Woodward Animal Center encourages the world to join with these philanthropic celebrities and

Pink Dog Abandoned with Brother at Shelter Responds Well to Treatment and Rescuers’ Love
You never know what you’re going to find at the “night drop” at the Animal Friends of the Valleys shelter in Wildomar, California. In this case, it was a dog that looked a lot like a pink Dalmatian.

The pink pup and a buddy, who are actually boxers, were there waiting on the morning of Feb. 13 — both suffering from a treatable skin condition called demodex mange. They would both later be named Asia and Artie. While some people give information about the animals they’re leaving behind at the anonymous drop-off kennel, on this particular day, that wasn’t the case.

R.I.P. George ‘The Animal’ Steele (1937 – 2017)

Pro wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer George ‘The Animal’ Steele has passed away aged 79, having reportedly suffered kidney failure.

Born William James Myers in Detroit, he became a teaching and wrestling coach after a promising football career was cut short following knee issues, and entered the wrestling business in the 1960s, initially as masked wrestler The Student.

He first entered the WWE – then the World Wide Wrestling Federation – in 1967, where he began a heated rivalry with champion Bruno Sammartino under his ‘Animal’ gimmick as a crazy heel who would often tear the turnbuckle apart using his teeth.

Steele turned face in 1985, leading to a memorable feud with ‘Macho ManRandy Savage which included an Intercontinental Championship match at WrestleMania 2. He would retire from wrestling in 1988, and was inducting into the Hall of Fame in 1995.

In addition to his wrestling exploits, Steele also made a number of acting appearances,

10 Wrestling Facts We Didn’t Know Last Week (Dec 18)

WWE.com

Known as the Legion Of Doom when working in the World Wrestling Federation, Hawk and Animal were also commonly referred to as The Road Warriors. Throughout their respective careers, both men were almost-constantly linked with one another. Arguably, they didn’t have as much success in the WWF as they earlier had in the Nwa and elsewhere, but they’re still a memorable team for many fans from the early-1990’s.

As tough as they were, one member of the tandem didn’t always have the strongest stomach. This article features one fact relating to that weakness, and it makes for a highly entertaining story. That’s what this list is all about, providing 10 different pro wrestling related facts that even the most hardcore of grappling fans may not have known about last week.

Joining The Road Warriors are the likes of Rey Mysterio, Finn Balor and Bill Goldberg.

NXPress #32: ‘Typoman’ plus the ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Movie and ‘Animal Crossing’

  • SoundOnSight
Back in 1993, director Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel were given the tough task of converting a non-narrative Nintendo video game into a motion picture. That movie of course is Super Mario Bros. and it’s the first live-action video game movie ever made. It is also not very good and this week the NXpress team set aside some time to discuss this strange beast. During our main event, we review Typoman, a two-dimensional puzzle platformer distinguished by a unique game world. You slip into the role of the Hero struggling to make your way through a dark, surreal world. Despite your small stature you have a powerful gift: You can use letters to alter your environment!

The Funhouse Massacre Review

The Funhouse Massacre presents itself as just another indiscriminate indie-horror flick, but as someone who’s been fooled by many similarly crafted duds, I can assure you that this roadside slaughterhouse is a much more enjoyable beast. Writer Ben Begley, who also plays a bumbling deputy, is not only able to craft a horror flick that’s loads of hellish fun, but this colorful massacre remain consistently funny throughout – not an easy task for scary comedies these days. While Begley’s tongue-in-cheek antics become a bit overplayed in a few instances, it fares far better than most jovial copycats of the same ilk, and holds its own against modern gore-chucklers with much bigger budgets. In the vein of a much more over-the-top The Houses October Built, The Funhouse Massacre is one of 2015’s hidden horror gems despite a smaller-format rollout, loaded with guts and bursting with psycho-carnie ferocity.

The 100 Greatest Nintendo Games Pt. 6

In celebration of 30 years since Nintendo released the Nes here in North America, I decided to round-up the Sos troops and compile a list of the 100 greatest games published and or developed by Nintendo, and released exclusively to their consoles. Here is part six.

50. Super Smash Bros. Brawl Developer(s) Ad hoc development team Publisher(s) Nintendo Platform(s) Wii Na March 9, 2008 Genre(s) Fighting, action, platformer -

This third installment in the Super Smash Bros. series of crossover fighting games, somehow made it farther down our list than the most recent addition which I called a masterpiece. I’m not entirely sure why, but in the end, it doesn’t really matter since both versions get a spot either way. Brawl is the first game in the series to expand past Nintendo characters by allowing players to control third-party icons such as Snake, the gritty soldier from Konami’s hugely popular Metal Gear series,

Sundance Latino 2015: All Latino Films at the Festival by Section

  • Sydney's Buzz
Representing Latin American, U.S. Latino, and non-Latino artists who explore multicultural relationships from singular perspectives, the films at this year's Sundance Film Festival include an array of stories that showcase the diverse creative voices that exist within the Latino filmmaking community.

This list includes both films that have been created fully or partially by Latin American or U.S. Latino filmmakers, as well as those that deal with themes and ideas relevant to the Latino experience in or outside the Unites States, even if these were not created by Latino artists. The increasing interest in these stories testifies to how rapidly Latinos are becoming constant and strong voices in all areas of the film industry.

In order to highlight as many of these talented creators and films as possible, we’ve created a list that includes all the films at the festival that are helmed by or that incorporate Latino talent and those that focus on a specific aspect pertinent to the Latino community. Some are obvious standouts like Argentina's acclaimed dark comedy "Wild Tales" or Colombia's "Liveforever" from Carlos Moreno.

Then there are those who at first sight might not fit the parameters of what one could think is a Latino film. This is the case of films like Eli Roth's "Knock Knock," which is an English-language horror film whose co-writers, producers, and part of the cast are originally from Chile. There is also " Aloft," a drama in the Spotlight section, which is set between Canada and Minnesota and stars Jennifer Connelly. It was written and directed by Academy Award nominated Peruvian filmmaker Claudia Llosa.

The third case includes those films that deal with subjects that have Latino elements or that explore diversity in the U.S in some way. Examples of these are "The Strongest Man" from Kenny Riches, a film narrated in Spanish by its protagonist "Beef," a charming, yet lost Cuban-American man in Miami; or "Cartel Land" by Matthew Heineman, which focuses on the violence shared between Mexico and U.S due to the drug-fueled chaos that afflicts the region. On a lighter note, there are films like “City of Gold” by Laura Gabbert, in which Los Angeles is seen through its ethnic food and local idiosyncrasies.

In an effort to give exposure to those films in the program that don’t get as much attention, the list below starts with the Shorts Programs and ends with the Dramatic Premieres. Each title is linked to its page on the Sundance website where screening times and locations can be found. Regardless of what films you watch at the festival, it is likely that your eyes will be expose to the work of some amazingly talented Latino filmmaker, writer or actor, or those who appreciate our stories as much as we do.

7 Things You Should Know About WWE Royal Rumble 1992

WWE.com

The 1992 Royal Rumble was the most unique Rumble PPV of all time because it’s the only time the WWE Title was up for grabs in the Royal Rumble match. Due to that reason, it was arguably the most important Rumble match ever.

It’s actually surprising that WWE hasn’t duplicated that aspect of the show because it put such a huge importance on the winner of the match. Perhaps it is something that Vince McMahon only wanted to do one time and never again, which makes a lot of sense.

The WWE Title was up for grabs because of controversial finishes in matches between Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker. This was only a year after Undertaker’s debut and he was a heel. Due to the controversy, WWE President Jack Tunney vacated the title and announced that the winner of the match would be the new WWE Champion.

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

  • SoundOnSight
Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s

Book Review: Heavy Metal Movies

Former head writer for the nudie site Mr. Skin, Mike “McBeardo” McPadden has stepped away from indexing every nude scene from every film ever made and dove head first into the high-speed, attitude driven world of Heavy Metal Cinema. From The Book’S Website: “Heavy metal and high-thrill cinema have been joined together like mutant twins since before Black Sabbath took the name of a chilling Italian horror film in 1970. The unadulterated journey of Heavy Metal Movies spans concert movies and trippy midnight flicks, inspirational depictions of ancient times and future apocalypses, and raw hand-held digital video obsessions. As brash, irreverent, and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.”
