While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Usher has decided to postpone his upcoming Euphoria tour in Europe to the fall of 2013 in an effort to spend more time with his kids. He says in a statement: "The feeling of euphoria that I get when performing for you is indescribable. I love each and every one of you and thank you for being there every step of the way. I truly appreciate and am grateful for your support while I take this time to focus on my children and continue to evolve with my fans. Evolve or evaporate."
  • "Sesame Street" meets "The Newsroom," "The Avengers" and "The Hunger Games" as Elmo, Cookie Monster and Grover adorably parody our more adult entertainment fare. [EW]
  • Filed under "things we'd so watch" is FX's development of the movie "Fargo" for TV. Joel and Ethan Coen are helping to bring their cult classic to the small screen as an hour-long show. [Deadline]
  • Our dream shindig list has expanded: Sofia Vergara would definitely be invited, but we'd also want the bromance of John Krasinski and Justin Theroux to be in attendance so they could serenade us with their rendition of "Call Me, Maybe," like they did at Jimmy Fallon's post-Emmys party. [Us Weekly]
  • Steven Spielberg might have found a leading lady in Anne Hathaway, as she's said to be in talks for his adaptation of the sci-fi story "Robopocalypse." Thoughts? [THR]
  • Nope, our love affair with Frank Ocean still hasn't ended. We've had his latest offering - in which he shows that he can rap just as well as he sings - on repeat today: [Frank Ocean's Tumblr]

    Slot Machines, in the days of the Wild West Slot Machines were known as one arm bandits because you could sit there all day putting in coins and pulling that handle without ever getting a win and the same is true today. Today’s slot machines have more ways to win, so you probably will not go all day winning nothing but other then some small five dollar or less wins you probably won’t do to well on the slot machines. If you insist this is the game for you try to remember that the more the machine is the better the odds of you getting a bigger win.^

  4. anne hathaway movies list

    Usher is nothing compared to Anne Hathaway. Probably the most elegant women on this earth. I recently watched her top 10 movies : http://www.top10thingsblog.com/2012/10/31/anne-hathaway-movies-list/ and pulled an all nighter. Can you compare that too listening to a full Usher album.wooo

  5. just wire it up and your there...great usher classics

    Big dinosaur silhouettes
    Big pyramid silhouettes
    Big building silhouettes
    Big silhouettes of...
    I don't know what that is
    It's Las Vegas with the lights out
    Las Vegas with the lights out
    Las Vegas with the lights out
    It's Las Vegas with the lights out
    Big crowd silhouettes
    Moving cautiously, arms outstretched
    None of the cars are turning over
    There's no juice in the batteries
    There's plenty of juice in all the people though
    Pushing their automobiles in neutral
    They aren't automatic anymore
    They aren't automatic anymore
    It's Las Vegas with the lights out...
    Big dealers wanna bet
    Roulette wheels wanna bet
    Slot machines wanna bet
    All resting
    Before the night when the lights went out
    Was an electrical water spout
    Absolutely everything about
    Electricity
    Has been dead for more than a minute
    I don't think this was an accident
    The dead presidents are innocent
    Made of metal ahh...
    It's Las Vegas with the lights out...

    Hackers are basically internet terrorists. Inciting fear and doubt upon the masses. Look up the text-book definition. It's kinda ironic; most of 'em are sad, pathetic people, living in their parents basement, reading comic-books, believing what they are doing is "heroic." What a pitiful existence. Leave the basement. Lose your delusions and step into the sun.
