Summerslam is behind us and we’re just two weeks away from In Your House, and it’s a show that features Shawn Michaels defending the Intercontinental Championship against Psycho Sid and Razor Ramon taking on British Bulldog – it’s Raw from 20 Years Ago Today…
Episode 126 – 11/09/1995
The show opens with a very excited Vince McMahon covering the Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon ladder match from Summerslam, as well as British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith turning on Diesel from three weeks ago on Raw.
1. Razor Ramon vs. British Bulldog
They showed a very bizarre confrontation between Razor and Dean Douglas in an inset video. As per usual, Vince and Jerry Lawler are talking over each other and just won’t shut up. Vince sounds like he is coked out of his mind. Razor throws one of his toothpicks at Jim Cornette who is on the outside for Bulldog. This was a pretty basic, »

Live from the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York, it’s SummerSlam 2015!
Lilian Garcia introduces host Jon Stewart and we’re under way! He drops a Beastie Boys reference and hypes up the show. ‘I’ve spent sixteen years talking about politics, it’s nice to be back in reality’. WWE? Reality? This is clearly a WWE-scripted intro, then. Huge boos for Cena’s name. This crowd is going to eat him alive. Mick Foley is brought out- cheap pops imminent…yup, there it is. They riff with each other for a while and it doesn’t really go anywhere. Still, nice to see Foley and Stewart looks up for this.
After the customary video package, it’s time for our first match…
Good choice for an opener. Orton went for an Rko early, but Sheamus bailed and cut a ringside promo and fans looking stupid. »

Across an expanding digital network, The Onion has parodied everything from SportsCenter to Ted talks to BuzzFeed. Now, as it looks to build up a new destination called Onion Studios, it will dish out Edge, a parody of Vice’s singular, rule-breaking brand of journalism.
In Edge, young correspondents will travel to distant countries in order to uncover thrilling, under-reported stories. However, if the show’s teaser is any indication, the Edge reporters seem more interested in messing around with locals, dishing out profanity, and scoring drugs.
Vice Media is one of the fastest-growing properties on the web. As it has pulled in hundreds of millions of dollars of capital, it has pursued a number of exciting ventures, including its own TV channel. As Vice’s star has grown, it has found itself to be a ripe target for parody, with Twitter accounts and former SNL cast members among those taking aim. »

U2 recruited Jimmy Fallon and the Roots for surprise cameos for their Wednesday night show at New York's Madison Square Garden. "It was an unbelievable experience," the Tonight Show host enthused during Thursday's episode. "I'll never forget it. But it almost didn't happen."
Fallon's hilarious spot involved the comedian pretending to be a random fan in the crowd, holding a sign that read "singer with a broken finger." Bono eventually pulled Fallon onstage to perform "Desire," delivering a spot-on impression of the U2 frontman – down to the opening grunt. But »

[Updated] Writer/director Paul Feig, Melissa McCarthy, and a cache of great, supporting actors helped pull the extremely funny and well-reviewed Spy ahead of its early challenger, Insidious 3, for a $30M win. That wasn't a sure thing as the third installment in the Insidious series, which ended up with $23M for the weekend, in 3,002 venues, took an early, if slight, Friday lead over Spy. That's not unusual as horror fans tend to show up early to support their films, so on Saturday, Insidious 3 was a nose ahead with $10.4M versus $10.3M for the secret agent spoof. But, coming around the Saturday bend, Spy surged ahead for a dominant, American Pharoah-like finish. Coming in 2nd place was Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and San Andreas with $26.4M and a not-unreasonable -52% drop from its hefty $54.5M last weekend. Its domestic cume is perched to break $100M sometime today. Entourage, which was so buried »

The post Video of the day: U2 busks in NYC subway in disguise appeared first on Sound On Sight.
U2 finally made their long-awaited visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, an appearance that was delayed six months as Bono recovered from a major cycling accident. "I had the humerus bone sticking out of the leather jacket," the singer told Fallon during the episode. While the accident forced the band to postpone their weeklong Tonight Show residency in November, U2 made amends by spending the entire episode with Fallon, resulting in a pair of sketches, an interview and a three-song performance.

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. Post-John Wick viewing I arrived home, logged onto Amazon and purchased an alarming amount of films, including Johnny Mnemonic (don’t worry, it was only 8p!). I thought I’d gotten through the Keanu phase at secondary school but it seems that it is now back with a vengeance. It all started after seeing that little known film The Matrix which was released right in the middle of my school career. Most of my »
