'Modern Seinfeld' Twitter feed trending in a big way
Today’s roundup of the pop-culture world finds an amusing trend, Tom Cruise, Kate Middleton, Jennifer Aniston, many other things, and the mystery music video.
TWEETS ABOUT NOTHING: But nonetheless creative, per Entertainment Weekly, “Our new favorite Twitter feed is Modern Seinfeld, an account that posts loglines for imaginary, 21st century-appropriate episodes of the classic Must-See TV sitcom. The joke works because it’s not just a matter of name-dropping Reddit and Grindr — whoever runs this feed clearly knows a lot about the show, and uses that knowledge to perfectly match each of Seinfeld‘s core four with the modern phenomena that would fascinate and vex them.” http://bit.ly/RYnXqG
OF A COMEBACK: Kind of like home-schooling, per The Wrap, “After five years of decline, the battered home-entertainment industry is seeing some daylight. Not only has the bleeding stopped, but the overall market for everything from DVDs to streaming to sales of iTunes copies of movies and TV shows is expected to grow by 5 percent to roughly $18.7 billion, according to projections by IHS Screen Digest.” http://bit.ly/T3Uvfu
OF A BREAKUP: Maybe she should try Tim Tebow, per People, “Nashville star Hayden Panettiere has broken up with her boyfriend of more than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Scotty McKnight, a source confirms to PEOPLE. But the split doesn't appear to be the stuff of a sad country song. The actress, 23, is still friends with McKnight, 24.” http://bit.ly/T3hRC1
SPICING IT UP: A different kind of girl power, per The Hollywood Reporter, “While musical theater debuts seldom make as much noise in the British media as glitzy movie premieres and rock concerts, Viva Forever is hitting the headlines because it is based on the songs of the Spice Girls, written by British comedy royalty Jennifer Saunders and produced by Judy Craymer, the producer whose resume boasts the stage and screen versions of the hugely successful ABBA musical Mamma Mia!” http://bit.ly/X5U9ow
TOM CRUISE: With no one on his arm, per Us Weekly, “Monday, Cruise made his triumphant return to the red carpet at the London premiere of Jack Reacher in Odeon Leicester Square. Clad in dark jeans, a navy suede blazer, and a navy V-neck sweater, the star was all smiles in his first official post-split public appearance.” http://usm.ag/UcuVnh
SHE SENDS HER REGRETS: She’s sick – really sick, per Access Hollywood, “The former Kate Middleton has cancelled a planned appearance at the U.K. premiere of “The Hobbit” due to acute morning sickness. Palace officials said Tuesday Prince William’s wife, now known as the Duchess of Cambridge, will continue to rest rather than go to the show.” http://bit.ly/SOlmMV
OH, THE INTRIGUE: Or whatever, per the Daily Mail, “They've been dogged by pregnancy rumours ever since they started dating. And now that Jennifer Aniston's set to walk down the aisle with fiance Justin Theroux speculation is again rife. The Friends actress has now sent rumour mills into overdrive after stepping out in an oversized jacket seemingly covering up a fuller figure and possible baby bump.” http://bit.ly/RmUOW7
WHO BURIED J.R.?: His show will, per TV Line, “Three weeks after TV legend Larry Hagman’s death from cancer complications, TVLine has learned that Dallas will lay his alter ego — an icon to multiple generations of viewers — to rest in the upcoming second season’s eighth episode, slated to air on March 11 on TNT.” http://bit.ly/TQwQkU
ACA: Just the facts. per the AP, “Luke Bryan didn't want the American Country Awards to end. He cleaned up during the fan-voted show, earning nine awards, including artist and album of the year. His smash hit "I Don't Want This Night To End" was named single and music video of the year.” http://apne.ws/QT7Nx9
