I’m in an odd mood, kiddos. Maybe it’s the polar vortex that’s waging war across our country. Maybe it’s seasonal affective disorder causing a case of the blues. Or perhaps the winds of change are blowing, and the time for revolution is nigh. I’ve simply noticed as of late an upward trend of general unrest. It’s got me equally excited, and potentially depressed. Let’s jump down the rabbit hole, shall we?
My title is in reference to ‘The Lego Movie’, which I caught this past weekend. The flick itself is amazing – funny, smart, creative, and enjoyable for everyone with a soul. One of the underlying themes carried via the brick-on-brick action/adventure is the power and importance of creativity, and originality. That everyone is in fact, an amazing, beautiful, and important creator of the world around them. This spits in the face of the villain, »

Lana! Lana! Laaaaaana! Guess who got renewed? Yep, FX has ordered a sixth and seventh season of the hilarious Archer.
In disappointing news, the BBC is shutting down BBC Three. Why should U.S. viewers care about this decision? BBC Three is the source of a good number of shows that developed loyal followings stateside like Gavin & Stacey, Being Human, Little Britain, and Torchwood. The channel will continue as a streaming video channel, but celebrities like Matt Lucas are already campaigning to save the channel.
I’m not sure how I feel about the news, as reported by EW, that Isaiah Washington will return to Grey’s Anatomy. At first I was angry, but it’s a one-episode appearance as part of Sandra Oh‘s exit from the series. I guess »

Canadian channel Showcase has ordered a fifth season of the very gay inclusive Lost Girl. That should make it easier for Syfy to continue airing it stateside.

While this marks baby No. 3 for Kimmel, the talk show host admitted that he has a lot of brushing up to do. "I have a 20-year-old son and a 22-year-old daughter, and I've really forgotten everything," the late-night host confessed.
The couple hasn't found out the baby's gender yet, but Kimmel has a name that could work for a boy or a girl. "I like the name Karate," he joked. "I think Karate Kimmel has a great ring to it."

This year’s Best Actor race is shaping up to be one of the greatest of all time. And by greatest, I mean both the most competitive and also the most outstanding, in the sense that each nominee is excellent — hypothetical winners in almost any other year. They also reflect the depth of superb male performances in 2013. Consider: Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips), Robert Redford (All Is Lost), Joaquin Phoneix (Her), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) all missed the cut.
EW’s Owen Gleiberman recently analyzed this year’s Best Actor race, calling it the most “fiercely, »

Jimmy Kimmel is quite the chef. Just ask Oprah Winfrey. The late-night host whipped up a delicious homemade pizza dinner for the Own founder on Friday evening. "Guess who made dinner last nite? @jimmykimmel. #greatchef," the 60-year-old captioned one snapshot of the duo on her Instagram account. Winfrey is clearly excited for the meal, while Kimmel proudly holds up the flattened dough on a wooden pizza peel.

As the Valentine’s Day chocolates are digested and the flowers slowly wilt in their vases, someone is keeping the love alive. Production companies Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures are uniting to bring the story of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn’s decades-long romance to the big screen.That shared feeling flows through the movies they made together of course, including nine projects in 27 years. The love affair between Tracy and Hepburn scandalised some corners of Hollywood but burned brightly and powerfully from their first meeting at MGM before making Woman Of The Year, and only ended with Tracy’s death days after finishing work on Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner. Tracy, of course, was still married to Louise Tracy for the entire relationship, and the film will also chronicle their struggles thanks to his battles with Catholic guilt and alcohol.David Rambo, a writer-producer on TV series such as CSI and Revolution, »
With the news that the Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy romance is getting the big-screen treatment in "Tracy and Hepburn," we at Toh! have two polls for you: Who should play Hepburn? Who should play Tracy? The film will reportedly cover the stars' 27-year relationship, from when they first met on the MGM lot while making "Woman of the Year" (pictured above), to Tracy's death only days after wrapping his final scene in 1967's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." They made nine films together and, while never married, Hepburn and Tracy's love affair was an open secret in Hollywood. The project is being produced by Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures, and is penned by TV scribe David Rambo ("CSI," "Revolution"). So, which actors would be best suited to play the iconic pair? Sadly, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman would have been a great candidate for Tracy. Who should play »

Independent producers Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures have developed “Tracy and Hepburn” with David Rambo writing the script. Story would follow the relationship between the two — from their meeting at MGM before making “Woman of the Year” in 1942 to Tracy’s death in 1967 after they worked on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”
Tracy died 17 days after shooting wrapped on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” Hepburn won her second of four Oscars for the performance.
Tracy remained married throughout the affair, which was kept private with both maintaining separate residences. Hepburn began speaking about the affair in the early 1980s.

If the creepy legends passed down by decades of students at Drew University are true, then nearly every building on the campus of this New Jersey college could be occupied by legions of ghosts. The caretakers of Drew U's online archives encourage students and alumni to submit their own ghost stories via a dedicated link. The first entry is the chilling article "Guess Who's Sleeping in Your Attic?" written by Lisa Spits and originally published in Acorn magazine over thirty years ago. “[T]here are certain buildings you won't walk in to by yourself,” said a '83 Drew graduate. “[Y]ou couldn't pay me to go in by myself.” Photo: Jim Henderson The article collects tales of Drew U hauntings that go back to the early 19th century, and include alleged hauntings by the school's founder Roxanna Mead Drew, who is said to haunt her namesake building, Mead Hall (shown above »

It's time for one of those filler episodes of "American Idol" -- the contestants remaining after Hollywood Week are made to take the longest elevator ride of their lives and then sit in the dreaded singular chair as the judges start the selection process on the Top 30.
At least when most singers either ride the elevator or are waiting for their judgment, we are treated to a performance from Hollywood that we may have not seen yet.
Highlights (and lowlights) include:
Emily Piriz singing and playing the piano on "Stars" by Grace Potter. Absolutely gorgeous. Thankfully, she is chosen for the Top 30.An original song by Spencer Lloyd is perhaps a misstep, but the judges still select him -- and of course they do, because he's a good singer and super attractive.Madelyn Patterson is the first person the show says goodbye to, which is too bad. She kicks off »
