Neil Patrick Harris Will Appear In “American Horror Story: Freak Show”

  • Neil Patrick Harris mentioned that he’d really like to act in “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” and now it’s official — he’ll appear on the last two episodes alongside husband David Burtka!

  • An interview with Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” will air on “Entertainment Tonight” tomorrow, where she’ll presumably talk about how miserable she is that her mother Mama June is dating Mark McDaniel, a pedophile who molested Chickadee when she was a child: “She’s smiling and giggling when he’s around. You know, he’s a child molester, Mama. He did this to me. Why would you let him come around the girls knowing what he did?” This story is getting more egregious by the day. [Dlisted]

Watch The New “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” Trailer And Just Ignore Me If You’re Super, Super Excited About It

Oooohhh, BUURRRRRNN

Woooo! The latest “Hunger Games” trailer is out! We’re so close to the release date! Also, are any other fans of the series just not that excited at this point?

When I read the books, I was rapt for the first book, interested for the second, and then I remember feeling, during the third, like Suzanne Collins was writing for an adaptation to screen, with somehow simultaneously dazzling and tedious descriptions of The Capitol’s physical setting, confusing and vague action sequences, and needless worrying over the Gale-Katniss-Peeta love triangle.

It’s a really, really nice idea at heart. But it’s flawed, and people are speaking out about it. The basic problem is this, as this blogger who has Lupus and deals with mental health issues points out:

You might also be thinking “What’s the big deal; they’d see your Tweets if they follow you anyway.” It’s the idea of being monitored by strangers for what they perceive as signs of suicidal ideation, who are then prompted by an app on what steps to take.
