Hey fans: Lil Wayne would like to thank you

Rapper Lil Wayne and his management are making good on their earlier idea that the rapper should still be able to communicate while he's serving a year-long prison sentence.

While it's not exactly a Twitter feed, Wayne and his team have set up a Web site called WeezyThankxYou.com, just to let his fans know that he loves them. “During my prison stint...I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail that I get, and this is my way of saying thank you,” Wayne – or one of his people – wrote.

Since - according to the countdown clock on Wayne's Web site at the time of this posting - he has 212 more days to go, sending him a letter "will be the best way we can communicate for the coming months," Wayne said in the first post. "The same way yall miss me, I miss yall, only 100 times more."

TV Recap: Blagojevich ousted again... on 'Apprentice'

I am convinced that Rod Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, does not know how to make decisions - the latest episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” proves it.

He and the other project manager, Selita Ebanks, flew to Orlando, Florida, to spearhead this week’s challenge: to create a 3D interactive display for the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter “attraction. They could not communicate with their team until they landed.

When that moment arrived, Blagojevich — well, once he could determine how his phone worked - named Bret Michaels as the one in charge back in New York. FULL POST

Trailer Park: Angelina Jolie, 'Macgruber' and a sorcerer

Hey Trailer Parkers! We’re back with our second installment of your one-stop shopping for all things movie trailers.

Now, before I get into this week’s goodies, I would like to point out two little things regarding last week’s offering: First, my apologies for spelling Olivia Wilde’s name wrong. I used a “y.” Y? I don’t know, but the mistake has been fixed and I promise to work extra hard to spell all things correctly this week. Secondly, I characterized “Tron Legacy” as a re-make, when, in fact, it is a sequel.

Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback. Now, here are three trailers that grabbed my attention this week! FULL POST
