While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

Emma Watson wants to make you laugh

One of the best moments in the trailer for Seth Rogen's "This Is the End" is the split second Emma Watson bursts into James Franco's house ... as herself ... carrying an ax.

The absurdity is exactly why it's so amusing - and also why Watson decided to go for Rogen's apocalyptic comedy, even though she's not particularly known for comedic work.

Remembering 'All in the Family' in LP form

Perusing through your parents’ music collection is part of growing up.
