Martha Thomases: And Today’s Holiday Is…

26 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Today is Boxing Day. According to Wikipedia “Boxing Day is a holiday traditionally celebrated the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradespeople would receive gifts, known as a ‘Christmas box’ from their bosses or employers… in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and other Commonwealth nations, as well as Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.”

Which is, as the British say, bollocks. With no history or evidence whatsoever, I consider Boxing Day to be the holiday in which we put all our unwanted gifts into a box they came in and return them to the , store for something we want. And since that works better as a premise for this column, that’s what I’m going with.

Here are some trends from 2014 popular culture that I would like to see returned and exchanged for something better:

Through the Keyhole with Keith Lemon: Black toilet paper and breakages

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's not just The X Factor that's back tonight - if you stick around afterwards, you'll get to watch Keith Lemon snooping his way through a bunch of celebrities' houses in a brand new series of Through The Keyhole. We caught up with Keith recently to find out what we can expect - and it involves black toilet paper, angry celebrities and much, much more...

Keith reckons the second series is better than the first.

"I think this series is better than last series because I was just finding my feet in the first one, and this one I know where they are, they're on the end of my legs. But it's quite loosey goosey, this one. I said, get rid of the autocue because I feel like I'm not doing anything if I'm just reading. So we got rid of the autocue and it has more of a Celebrity Juice flavour to it, »

Jeremy Irvine to Lead Gay Rights Drama 'Stonewall' for Director Roland Emmerich

9 April 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jeremy Irvine has signed on to star in director Roland Emmerich's gay rights drama Stonewall.

The plot is based on the true story of the June 28, 1969 raid at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York, a mafia-owned establishment that was a gathering place of homosexuals and transgenders of that area. The raid set off a violent series of riots and demonstrations and became a touchstone for the gay rights movement that is recognized still to this day. The plot centers on a young man (Jeremy Irvine) who must come to terms with his own political ideals in the face of this event.

Jon Robin Baitz (People I Know) wrote the screenplay, with Roland Emmerich producing alongside Michael Fossatt and Marc Frydman. Kirstin Winkler and Adam Press are serving as executive producers. Roland Emmerich plans to shoot Stonewall while continuing to prep for his highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Independence Day »

Kim Novak's Oscar Appearance Leads To Attacks And Jokes On Twitter

2 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kim Novak caused a firestorm on Twitter Sunday night when the 81-year-old actress appeared at the Oscars to present the award to Best Animated Feature with Matthew McConaughey.

Kim Novak's Face Draws Nasty Tweets

Novak, best known for her iconic role in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958), walked onstage and viewers immediately took to Twitter to comment on Novak’s appearance. With bright, tight, round cheeks and a tight jaw, it can be assumed that she has had some plastic surgery as she has gotten older. Her stunned appearance and raspy voice were all a bit confusing. In addition, it didn’t seem like she was reading off the teleprompter – one moment she made a reference to McConaughey’s role in Magic Mike.

Viewers jumped on Novak, commenting on everything from her voice to her supposed plastic surgery. Comedians jumped on the bandwagon as well, though most were slightly less cruel. »
