What does the moon smell like? I’m sure you’ve wondered for quite some time. Well, it’s official…the moon smells like gunpowder. Of course! It is believe that smell is a composition of rock from ancient lava flows on the side of the moon that faces the Earth. Does the moons odor really matter since we have to wear air-tight suits whenever we visit?
Kelly Ripa is heading back to primetime…and she’s taking her husband, Mark Consuelos with her. Ripa and Consuelos will co-write and co-produce the project called ‘Port Love.’ Ripa will have a recurring role in the show while Consuelos will have a starring role. ‘Port Love’ will follow the cast and crew of a once popular TV show who have backstage drama. It will be shot in a one-camera, Office-style way.
Lookin’ for a new whip? (I think that’s a car.) Michael Jordan’s Mercedes McLaren SLR722 is on the market. It’s a 2007 but it only has 962 miles on it. It’s supposed to be one of the greatest cars ever produced. This prize ride can be yours for just $430,000. The car was $475,000 new. That car depreciated at almost $47 per mile driven.
And finally, a Thai production company has reproduced the Disney classic ‘Beauty and the Beast’ shot for shot. The movie, who’s title translates to ‘Beautiful Girl with Curse Devil’, has, what experts are calling, cheap, blocky computer animation. The beast has the head of a lion (perhaps Simba), poofy hair, and water buffalo horns. It’s a gem! The trailer is below. The music is sinister and the voices seem so bizarre! Enjoy!
