In 1993 at the age of 3, Oliwia Dabrowska played the little girl in the red coat in Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List.” Her scenes are some of the most iconic in the film. “Schindler’s List” is about industrialist Oskar Schindler, a real life person who helped thousands of Jews escape death during the Holocaust. Dabrowska portrays a little girl in a red coat walking through the Krakow Ghetto. Her jacket is the only piece of color in the black-and-white film, so she is impossible to miss. On March 9th, Dabrowska posted a re-colored still from that scene to Instagram. Her…

‘I didn’t know that was in there!’ is kinda like ‘the dog ate my homework’ when it comes to viable excuses. But TSA agents at Boston’s Logan Airport may have found one of the few times someone *literally* didn’t know that was ‘in there.’ On April 5th, a traveler from Massachusetts was being screened. When agents scanned his cane, they found a ‘possible sword’ inside of a walking cane. “When questioned, the passenger … stated that he bought the cane not knowing it had a sword inside,” the TSA said in a statement, via Nexstar. (Transportation Security Administration) The Massachusetts…

On last week’s “Saturday Night Live,” Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, Dirt Nasty, and Gunna rapped about wanting a ‘Short-Ass Movie.’ Netflix responded by making a short-ass movies section.

The Netflix Is A Joke Twitter account responded with “good idea,” and included a link to the short-ass movies section.  https://twitter.com/NetflixIsAJoke/status/1511042299291123712?s=20&t=AlRkLqQgNSRf70dzlT647w The 90 minute cap is even shorter than the requested “like, at most, an hour-forty.” The sketch goes on to bemoan films with long runtimes “because I’m a simple…

17 years ago, a huge storm hit Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas allowing two African flamingos to escape. On March 29th, the Coastal Fisheries division of Texas Parks and Wildlife confirmed that they had spotted one of these birds. Over a decade on the lam can change a bird.

Local Parks and Wildlife were able to make out the number from the footage. Photo by…

In 1986, Bill Heine installed an almost 25-foot fiberglass shark sculpture on his roof. It has been the talk of the town ever since. So much so that the Oxford City Council, who originally fought to remove the shark, are now embracing the sculpture. The whole point of the shark was not only to defy bureaucrats, but also to make an anti-war statement. Heine took issue with local authorities deciding what art is or isn’t acceptable for the public. This whole issue started years before when Heine collaborated with friend/sculptor John Buckley. They put a large sculpture of a pair…

A new series called “Welcome to Derry” is in the works for HBO Max. The show is a prequel to “It: Part One,” taking place in the 1960s. It may give the origin story for Pennywise, who originated in the Stephen King novel “It.” Since Pennywise’s reign of horror works in 27 year cycles, this would mean we are likely following the group he terrorized before the 1989 Losers Club. Many fans were quick to point out this is the group Pennywise won against. Because this new show is set to revolve around the two modern film adaptations, there is…
