Veteran TV Host Hugh Downs Dead at 99

For the second time this week, we've lost a legend in the TV world. Veteran broadcaster and TV host Hugh Downs has died from natural causes at the age of 99. His great-neice Molly Shaheen confirmed the news that Downs died at his Scottsdale, Arizona, home on Wednesday (July 1).

Downs had been a Guinness Book of World Records holder, claiming the title of spending the most hours on television until he was surpassed in 2004 by Regis Philbin.

Downs' early career started as a radio announcer in Ohio before he moved on to Chicago in the 1950s. There he was an announcer for Kukla, Fran and Ollie and also lent his voice to TV's first soap opera, Hawkins Falls.

He enjoyed a varied history at NBC, where he appeared on both The Today Show and The Tonight Show, serving alongside host Jack Parr. He also hosted the game show Concentration.

In his latter years, Downs was best known as the co-host of ABC's 20/20 with Barbara Walters. His other credits include the PBS series Over Easy, and he hosted Live From Lincoln Center.

“I’ve worked on so many different shows and done so many shows at the same time,” Downs said in a 1986 Associated Press interview. “I once said I’d done everything on radio and television except play-by-play sports. Then I remembered I’d covered a boxing match in Lima, Ohio, in 1939.”

The Lord of the Rings TV Series Casting For ‘Funky-Looking’ Faces

href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerNew Line

Do you have an overbite? Are you extremely and almost dangerously hairy? Are you very very short? Or super-duper tall? Are you missing teeth? Do you have “long skinny limbs”? Have you been burdened with “acne scars, ears that stick out,” or a “bulbous or interesting nose?” Do you have a false eye that you can remove on command?

If any or all of these sound like you definitely check out this Facebook ad from BGT talent agency, who are currently casting for Amazon’s upcoming TV series adaptation of The Lord of the Rings and are looking for, in their words “funky-looking” people to fill out the cast. They literally asked for people with false eyes that can be removed on command.

The Facebook post includes a whole list of types they want:

  • Short people under 4 foot 12 (we know that 4 foot 12 is 5 foot)
  • Tall people over 6 foot 5
  • Character faces, wrinkles and lots of them please
  • Androgynous men and women
  • Hairy hairy people of all ages and ethnicities
  • Tall, Long Lithe dancers
  • Circus performers who can juggle, stilt walk!
  • Stocky mean-looking bikers
  • Eurasian people of all ages.
  • Hispanic – Latino, Mexican, South American
  • Red heads all ages, shapes and sizes.
  • HAIR HAIR HAIR – if you natural red hair, white hair, or lots and lots of freckles.
  • Middle-earth don’t manscape, apparently.

    Interested parties are welcome to email evelina@bgt.nz — but you need to be “a New Zealand resident or hold a valid New Zealand work visa.” Sorry to all the stocky, mean-looking bikers who can also juggle and stilt walk out there in the good old United States of America. Perhaps someday they’ll reboot Sons of Anarchy just for you.

    Ernia – Bugie Lyrics

    Una per proteggere i miei cari
    Una per pararmi il culo dagli infami
    Una per leccarli come i cani
    Una per scoparla e poi cacciarla domani
    Una per fregarti e poi sfregarmi le mani

    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie
    Ne dico una e poi magari mi ci convinco
    Ci penso forte e poi domani non è più finto
    Ne dico una anche ai compari, anche ai compari
    Senza troppi particolari, particolari

    Senza troppi particolari, ho un labirinto
    Nella mia testa, due binari: reale e finto
    A volte non voglio sapere qual è quello giusto
    Perché se penso a ciò che è vero, sai, provo disgusto
    (Ancora, ancora, ancora)
    Ne dico una per scoparmi una subretta
    Essere B però ti tiro starlette
    Sono bianche, infondo non fanno niente
    Gonfio un po’ la realtà come gli OGM
    Alle ragazze ne racconti a cassette
    Non rispondo al cellulare che non prende
    Si, prendo un po’ la mano nella piazzette
    Tipo che te le fiuto come un Setter
    Alcuni le dicono per fare i brutti
    Quella l’ho scopata 4 ore a fila
    Se lo dici in testa sorridiamo tutti
    Perché sappiamo che eri eletta a fare la vocina
    Ne dico una un po’ da candidatura
    Anche se sul web fa caricatura
    Lo dico dal 2016 che fa paura
    Corriamo tutti verso l’amo, pesca d’altura
    E i professori ti diranno: "Siete uguali"
    Che nel lavoro vince la passione, no squali
    Che sono ricchi e generosi, no avari
    E la TV ti dirà si, che tu vali
    Sono bravi a dirle i colleghi rapper
    Vi hanno imbottito di cazzate come omelette
    Ti tiran fuori se ti trovi alle strette
    Non è furbo chi le dice, ma chi omette

    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi

    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie
    Ne dico una e poi magari mi ci convinco
    Ci penso forte e poi domani non è più finto
    Ne dico una anche ai compari, anche ai compari
    Senza troppi particolari, particolari

    Siamo ingegneri di ‘sta roba, stile architetto
    Un po’ per l’ego, per i soldi o per portarla a letto
    Ho gli occhi bassi per non svelare quello che ho dentro
    Mi guardan come se sapessero quello che penso
    (Non è così vero?)
    Alcune sono come donne con bei seni
    Solo a pensare che sian vere, ti ci seghi
    Alcune sono come bimbi, non vedi
    Stai attento perché sai che non stanno in piedi
    Non solo G-Geppetto, tanti Pinocchi
    Ballano tutti in cerchio come pidocchi
    Si fingon tutti G come Gicotti
    E dopo cantano in questura come Pavarotti
    Entriamo tutti di corsa con la rincorsa
    Come si fanno le rapine la mattina in posta
    No armi, in tasca una lingua rossa
    Prendiamo tutti la mira e la spariamo grossa
    Ne dico una ai miei parenti, non do delusioni
    Faccio coincidere le versioni
    Se grosse tappano le tubazioni
    Acqua da tutte le parti, come le alluvioni
    C’è chi le dice alla cicuta, che ci deruba
    Che se lo scambi poi ti dice: "Era una battuta"
    C’è chi le dice pure se gli chiedi consiglio
    E sono belle le simpatiche che dice Silvio
    (Dimmi, dimmi, dimmi, dimmi)

    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie, dimmi
    Bugie, bugie, bugie, bugie
    Ne dico una e poi magari mi ci convinco
    Ci penso forte e poi domani non è più finto
    Ne dico una anche ai compari, anche ai compari
    Senza troppi particolari, particolari

    DC’s Online Con Will Feature ‘The Batman’ and Snyder Cut Reveals

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/screencrushstaff/” rel=”author” title=”ScreenCrush Staff”>ScreenCrush StaffDC Comics

    Fans jonesing for that Comic-Con experience this summer even though all the actual cons are canceled will be able to get their fix in virtual form. San Diego Comic-Con has already announced that they will be programming a “Comic-Con At Home” event available to all. Now Warner Bros. has announced they’re going to be holding their own online convention for DC Comics as well.

    It’s called “DC FanDome,” and the press release describes it as “an unprecedented opportunity to hear from the casts and creators behind your favorite feature films and TV series, including: AquamanThe BatmanBatwomanBlack AdamBlack LightningDC Super Hero GirlsDC’s Legends of TomorrowDC’s StargirlDoom PatrolThe FlashHarley Quinn, the SnyderCut of Justice LeagueLuciferPennyworthSHAZAM!The Suicide SquadSupergirlSuperman & LoisTeen Titans GO!TitansWatchmenYoung Justice: Outsiders and, coming this fall to theaters worldwide, Wonder Woman 1984.”

    Comic conventions have become a huge industry in recent years. Fans travel from all over the world to San Diego Comic-Con and other such events. But an online version, where you don’t have to leave the house, where you don’t have to wait overnight outside in a line just to get a seat in Hall H, where there are no aromas of nacho cheese and B.O. actually sounds … like a better version of Comic-Con? You can even do online sales of exclusive con merchandise. without all the hassle of lines or getting shut out. What if after this is all said and done, people don’t want to go back to the way cons used to be?

    DC and Warner Bros. also promise “new announcements” about DC games, movies, TV shows, and comics. The whole thing will be accessible for 24 hours at DCFanDome.com on August 22, starting at 10 a.m. PDT.

    ‘Cops’ Canceled By Paramount Network

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerParamount Network

    After more than 30 years on the air — and six seasons on the Paramount Network — Cops has been canceled. The show has been airing regularly on Paramount (previously Spike TV) since 2013. But if you looked at the Paramount Network’s official website over the weekend and searched for Cops, you would have seen a prompt that reads “we can't find that, but give one of these a try” and been pointed towards Bar Rescue or Lip Sync Battle instead. It was as if the show was not only not on the air moving forward, but that it had never appeared on the channel to begin with.

    And, in fact, Paramount Network has canceled Cops. The show was supposed to have its 33rd season premiere this week. Instead a spokesperson for the network told Deadline “Cops is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return.”

    That marks a total and sudden programming change in light of the ongoing protests around the country against police brutality. In this environment, a show like Cops — a reality series about actual police officers on the job, backed by a theme song that includes the line “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” — was probably going to draw more controversy than ratings. (It may be worth noting that the 27/4 Cops channel on Pluto.TV is still on the digital airwaves as of this writing.)

    As for Live PD, the other reality show focused on cops that was pulled from cable last weekend, A&E is reportedly still “evaluating the right time to bring it back.” Given the state of the world, that could be a while.

    Apple To Finance Scorsese’s DiCaprio-De Niro Team-Up Movie

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerPaul Bruinooge/Patrick McMullan

    On the day yet another competitor has entered the world of streaming video, we’re getting word that Apple — whose Apple TV+ has lagged far behind Netflix and the other dominant forces in the world of digital movies and TV — is potentially making a very big move into the world of movies. Deadline reports that they’re close to a deal to finance Killers of the Flower Moon, Martin Scorsese’s follow-up to The Irishman, which would star both of his signature leading men: Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.

    According to Deadline, “the deals are being papered, but … it will be an Apple original film, and Paramount will distribute theatrically worldwide.” Paramount was originally supposed to finance and release the film, but reportedly balked at the price tag for the movie, which is rumored to be in the “$180 million to $200 million” range — no small amount of money for what’s sure to be a difficult drama, and not a massive superhero epic.

    Here’s the synopsis of the book it is based on, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI:

    The book is a mystery about a series of murders of wealthy Osage Native Americans in Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. The ensuing investigation established the FBI and was a pivotal moment in the evolution of America from its frontier era.

    Apple also recently purchased the Tom Hanks World War II movie Greyhound, which was originally supposed to premiere in theaters, before theaters went kaput during the coronavirus pandemic. As notable as that film is, Killers of the Flower Moon is even bigger, and could potentially be a signature title on Apple TV+ and a major awards contender.

    Sony Is Developing Another Spider-Man Spinoff

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerSony

    When movie theaters are permitted to fully reopen and studios begin to release new blockbusters, we’re going to see a wave of Spider-Man movies from Sony … without Spider-Man in them. Next March, we’ll get Morbius, starring Jared Leto as a vampire that Spidey has tussled with on numerous occasions. Then in June there’s the majestically named Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the sequel to Tom Hardy’s surprise hit as the popular Marvel anti-hero.

    Not content to rest on their, uh, Carnage, Variety reveals that Sony is prepping a third Spidey spinoff, this one the first “female-centric” movie in their Spider-Man cinematic universe. They don’t have concrete info on which character will be the focus but they have one educated guess based on their sources:

    While it’s unconfirmed at the time who the character at the center will be, insiders say there is a strong possibility that the film will be based on the Madame Web comic-book character. Sony had no comment.

    Sony has signed TV director  S.J. Clarkson, who worked on episodes of Marvel Netflix series like Jessica Jones and The Defenders, to helm the project. Sony previously developed a female-centric Spider-Man spinoff called Silver & Black, which would have focused on the Marvel characters of Black Cat and Silver Sable. Gina Prince-Bythewood was signed to direct the film, which was announced in 2017. But that project never came together. Last we heard, Silver & Black was now being developed as a TV series.

    So this is probably not that. It could be Madame Web, although that character wouldn’t seem to lend herself to a very dynamic movie — she’s a blind psychic who can predict the future. (Recently, a former Spider-Woman named Julia Carpenter took the name Madame Web in Marvel Comics, so theoretically you could make a movie about her version of the character.) There are tons of other female superheroes in Spider-Man’s orbit who this could theoretically be, from Silk to the original Spider-Woman Jessica Drew, to Spider-Gwen, who popped up in Into the Spider-Verse. Given the fact that much of Hollywood is on pause right now, we might not find out what character will appear in this spinoff for a while.

    A New ‘Muppets’ Show Is Coming to Disney Plus This Summer

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerDisney

    For the first time in almost five years, The Muppets are returning to TV — this time on streaming.

    Their latest show is a Disney+ exclusive, titled Muppets Now. Premiering later this summer, the show is billed as a meta-series about the Muppets making their first show for Disney+. Trippy. Here’s the show’s official synopsis, per a Disney press release:

    “Muppets Now” is The Muppets Studio’s first original series for Disney+. In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming. They are due now, and he’ll need to navigate whatever obstacles, distractions, and complications the rest of the Muppet gang throws at him. Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in “Muppets Now” with the kind of startling silliness and heartfelt fun that first made them famous.

    The Muppets last live-action show, simply called The Muppets had a rocky run on ABC TV; it got mediocre reviews and survived for just one season after its premiere in 2015. (Cartoon versions of the Muppets are faring better over on the Disney Channel in the current update of Muppet Babies, which has already completed three seasons.) That came on the heels of two movies, The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted, that got better scores from critics but struggled to break through at the box office. Simply put, while the characters themselves remain beloved, the Muppets could really use a hit. We’ll see if Muppets Now gives it to them when it premieres on Disney+ on July 31.

    Zoe Kravitz Has ‘No Idea’ When ‘The Batman’ Can Resume Shooting

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerWarner Bros.Warner Bros.

    Around the country and the world, businesses are taking tentative steps to resume work despite the lingering threat of the coronavirus pandemic. For some businesses, that is more difficult than others. In the world of movie and TV business, with so many crew members and actors, and scenes where social distancing is impossible, it’s particularly tricky.

    A new report in Variety details some of the pitfalls faced by movies and television as they try to resume the work that was suspended back in February and March as the threat of Covid-19 became clear. And amidst all the other details, there’s an important and not-very-encouraging tidbit on the status of The Batman from star Zoe Kravitz, who plays Catwoman in the latest reboot of DC Comics’ Dark Knight. She told Variety that even if some studios are readying production, she’s not sure when she will get back to work. She added that…

    …part of her is ‘hoping to wake up every day to an email or a phone call saying, ‘We’re ready to go.’’ But when that could be remains unclear. ‘I’m in touch with everybody, and everyone’s ready to go when it’s safe,’ she says. ‘But no, we have no idea.’

    Production on The Batman shut down in mid-March. Director Matt Reeves has said that the film was only about 25 percent complete when the cameras stopped rolling, which means even when the crew gets back to work they still have a long way to go before the movie will be ready for audiences. The release of The Batman has already been pushed back once. Initially scheduled for June 25, 2021, the film is now due in theaters on October 1, 2021. There’s no guarantee it won’t get delayed again.

    Fred Willard, Comedy Legend, Dies at 86

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerABC via Getty Images

    More sad news from the entertainment world today, as Fox News reports that Fred Willard, beloved comedian from film and television, has died. Willard passed away of natural causes on Friday. He was 86 years old.

    His daughter, Hope Mulbarger, gave this statement to Fox:

    My father passed away very peacefully last night at the fantastic age of 86 years old. He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end. We loved him so very much! We will miss him forever.

    Willard’s career in comedy lasted over half a century. Born in Ohio in 1933, Willard moved to New York in the 1950s after getting out of the Army. He began doing theater and became a key member of several famous comedy troupes, including the Second City. In the late 1970s he became a fixture on television on shows like Real People; through the years he appeared on many popular TV shows, including The Love Boat, Roseanne, Mad About You, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Modern Family.

    But Willard’s most acclaimed roles came during his appearances in the films of Christopher Guest. Guest’s films are largely improvised, and Willard’s background in live comedy made him an enormous asset — and a dependable scene stealer. In the first improvised film Guest directed, 1996’s Waiting For Guffman, Willard played Ron Albertson who, along with his wife Sheila (Catherine O’Hara), become the leads in a local theater production in Blaine, Missouri. Their audition scene for the show is incredible.

    In 2000’s Best in Show, Willard played the clueless TV commentator Buck Laughlin, whose ramblings made the climactic dog show absolutely hilarious.

    In A Mighty Wind, about the survivors of the 1960s folk scene, Willard even got a catchphrase: “Hey! Wha’ happened?”

    Willard has been making appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in recent years, and later this month, viewers of Netflix’s new comedy Space Force will get to see him as the Secretary of Defense. Willard’s co-star on the show, Steve Carell, posted this lovely tribute on Twitter.

    Clearly, Fred Willard will be missed, and not just by his fans.

    Lynn Shelton, Acclaimed Indie Director, Dies at 54

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/screencrushstaff/” rel=”author” title=”ScreenCrush Staff”>ScreenCrush StaffGetty Images

    The film and television world has been rocked by a shocking death: Lynn Shelton, the acclaimed indie director who worked on some of the most popular TV series of the last few years has died. Indiewire reports that she had a “previously unidentified blood disorder.” Shelton was only 54 years old.

    They also acquired a statement from Shelton’s creative and romantic partner, Marc Maron, which reads:

    I have some awful news. Lynn passed away last night. She collapsed yesterday morning after having been ill for a week. There was a previously unknown, underlying condition. It was not COVID-19. The doctors could not save her. They tried. Hard.

    Shelton and Maron had been making appearances in public together as recently as February; the photo above is from the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards. So this is truly sudden, terrible news.

    Shelton was raised in Seattle and started working as an editor before transitioning into writing and directing. She made her first feature, We Go Way Back, in 2006. Her third movie was her breakthrough: Humpday starring Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard as two old friends who reconnect and, on a dare, decide to make a porn film together. Humpday won an award at the Sundance Film Festival and was widely acclaimed by critics.

    Shelton made five more films, including last year’s Sword of Trust, which starred Maron, all in the same personal style of Humpday — and not because she didn’t have opportunities to move into the mainstream. Last year, she revealed that she’d been approached about directing Marvel’s Black Widow movie. She decided against it, explaining to Variety that she “really wanted to save [her] body of work in cinema. “To have total creative control and to really be able to make exactly what I wanted to make,” she explained, “which is what making movies at the level that we’ve been making movies at allows you to do. Which is amazing.”

    Instead, Shelton turned to directing television to fund her films projects. She directed an episode of Mad Men in 2010 and spent the following decade directing TV comedy in between films. She worked on New Girl, Master of None, The Good Place, Fresh off the Boat, and GLOW among others.

    Most recently, she directed Marc Maron’s new Netflix special, End Times Fun, and four of the eight episodes of Little Fires Everywhere, which only premiered on Hulu two months ago. The fact that she’s gone now, in the midst of her creative prime, is absolutely tragic. Maron put it best in his statement: “She was a beautiful, kind, loving, charismatic artist. Her spirit was pure joy.”

    10 Fictional Amusement Parks We Wish We Could Visit In Real Life

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/claireepting/” rel=”author” title=”Claire Epting”>Claire EptingUniversal Pictures/20th Century Fox Television

    With Disneyland and Walt Disney World closed for the foreseeable future, it’s time to think up some new ways to get some thrill during the warmer months. Why not start by checking out these movies and television shows for inspiration? Fictional amusement parks serve many purposes in film and TV. They offer endless opportunities for puns and gags, and they provide a lot of unique situations for characters to find themselves in. Sometimes, they can even serve as the basis for the entire movie.

    When done right, an imagined theme park should make you, the viewer, want to experience it for yourself. Here are ten on-screen amusement parks that we’d like to visit the most.

    ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Sequel Series ‘Clarice’ Picked Up By CBS

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerOrion

    CBS announced today it had picked up three new series for the fall 2020 TV season. The first is a multicamera sitcom called B Positive starring Thomas Middleditch. The second is a reboot of The Equalizer starring Queen Latifah. The third is the most intriguing: Clarice, a sequel series to The Silence of the Lambs focusing on FBI Agent Clarice Starling after the events of that novel/film (where she was originally played by Jodie Foster).

    Here is the show’s official description from CBS:

    CLARICE, from acclaimed executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, and starring Rebecca Breeds (“Pretty Little Liars”) in the title role, is a deep dive into the untold personal story of brilliant and vulnerable FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field in 1993, six months after the events of “The Silence of the Lambs.” Kal Penn, Nick Sandow, Michael Cudlitz, Lucca De Oliveira and Devyn A. Tyler also star. Alex Kurtzman, Jenny Lumet and Heather Kadin are executive producers for MGM Television and CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout. Aaron Baiers is a co-executive producer.

    Word of the sequel series first leaked out several months ago, before the coronavirus pandemic began wreaking havoc on TV production and pilot season. Clarice Starling was one of the more recognizable characters from the world of novelist Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter novels who did not appear in their previous TV adaptation, Hannibal, starring Mads Mikkelsen. That show did not have the rights to adapt The Silence of the Lambs specifically, hence she never joined the cast (and double hence the show can now exist).

    Look for Clarice to premiere in the fall … assuming television production can resume some time before then.

    Walter Benjamin – Your House Lyrics

    It’s so windy back home
    Little girl
    Where the TV screen goes to sleep
    And your tiny dances should rule
    The outside world
    I am a glad outsider just to watch you dance
    I am a glad outsider just to watch you dance
    Will you let me in sometime
    Just enter the gate
    And go upstairs
    Like God?
    I’ve heard you used to bash the keys
    In the morning
    Before it all started to make sense

    It all made sense to you
    But I have never seen the truth written in your books
    I have never seen the truth written in your books
    It was left on the ashtrays
    Where we used to finish our cigarettes
    – and they’re over now
    Will you let me in sometime
    Just enter the gate
    And go upstairs
    Like God?
    Your ghosts look beautiful to me
    Your ghosts look beautiful to me

    I still can’t rely on your love
    So I’m brushin’ the dirt off my shoulders
    I guess I was high off the buzz
    I was drunk, now I’m searching for sober
    I guess that I overdosed

    I guess that I overdosed
    Oh oh whoa oh whoa

    Girl, your love is addictive, yeah, your love is addictive, girl, your love is the dope
    It was getting me lifted, it was getting me lifted, now I feel like a hoax
    Yeah, I feel like a dickhead, yeah, I feel like a dickhead, yo, that’s par for the course
    I was asleep on that comatose, but I awoke from that overdose
    You were one in a million, that’s what I thought, though I got cold feet, I got frozen toes
    Just as sure as the cold wind blows, can’t feel my face, you’re that dose of coke, better blow my nose
    But my nose done grown, I told more lies than Pinocchio
    But that’s just life when your life’s on drugs, tried to hold you close but I can’t quite cope
    Yo, I might just ghost, hit the open road, somewhere so remote, no remote controls
    No DVD’s, flat screen TV’s, plus no 4G for my mobile phone
    I just write quotes from my mobile home, the homeboys gloat like, ‘I told you so’
    But your love’s like white, got me wired all night, how’d I get so high when I feel so low?

    [Chorus: Jeswon & Bea Moon]
    I still can’t rely on your love
    So I’m brushin’ the dirt off my shoulders
    I guess I was high off the buzz
    I was drunk, now I’m searching for sober
    I guess that I overdosed

    I guess that I overdosed
    I guess that I overdosed
    I guess that I overdosed
    Oh oh whoa oh whoa

    [Verse 2: Tuka]
    She said, “I like the way you f*ck me, Tuk, too bad you’ll trust me but”, I said
    If you ever learn to love me we can share a little more than company, oh snap
    Nothing’s ever that simple, I’d hold back, but I really can’t sit still
    Cold facts you’re just into for a quick fix, soul clap, I’m in it ’cause I think you are a big deal
    I swear an angel answered my prayers, she came to my aid when she saw the pain on my face
    Now she’s standing right there, running her hand through my hair, saving my grace
    And healing my wounds, she is my queen bee, speaking my truth, I dare
    You can place your feet in my shoes indeed, you can even have the keys to my room, it’s free, see if I care
    Yeah, best believe that I do, take a look in these eyes, they’re lookin’ at you
    I’m right here, I hope you don’t mind when I stare, I’ve been gettin’ ideas, gettin’ hooked on that view, “like yeah”
    My God, my gosh, there we are at it again, I guess, yeah
    You’ll be leaving once you get what you want, but to be honest that is never quiet clear

    [Chorus: Jeswon & Bea Moon]
    I still can’t rely on your love
    So I’m brushin’ the dirt off my shoulders
    I guess I was high off the buzz
    I was drunk, now I’m searching for sober
    I guess that I overdosed
    I guess that I overdosed
    I guess that I overdosed
    I guess that I overdosed
    Oh oh whoa oh whoa

    ‘Friends’ Starts Streaming Again on May 27

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/screencrushstaff/” rel=”author” title=”ScreenCrush Staff”>ScreenCrush StaffWarner Bros.

    Even though its final new episode aired in 2004, Friends remains one of the most valuable television shows on the planet. In 2018, Netflix paid a reported $100 million for the rights to stream the show for a single year. But those rights expired at the end of 2019. When the calendar ticked over to 2020, Friends left Netflix. And it hasn’t popped up anywhere else yet. If you don’t have the DVDs (or a TV that gets syndicated reruns), you might be going through Friends withdrawals after three-plus months without the show available on demand.

    That changes on May 27. That’s when Friends’ new streaming home, HBO Max, officially launches to the public. The new site, owned by WarnerMedia, will be the “exclusive” streaming home for Friends for the next five years. (They paid a reported $425 million for those rights.)

    HBO Max’s original plan called for the series to debut with a brand new unscripted reunion special featuring the six main Friends cast members. Unfortunately, the shooting of the special was delayed because of coronavirus. (HBO Max’s announcement of its launch slate now lists the special among the original programming due on the service “through summer and fall” of 2020.) But in the meantime you will be able to watch all 236 older episode of Friends on HBO Max, starting at the end of May. (You can read the full list of HBO Max’s launch titles right here.)

    ‘SNL’ Returns With A New Remotely Produced Episode This Week

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerNBC

    Now SNL stands for “Social Distancing Night Live.”

    In a surprise move, Saturday Night Live will return with a new episode this weekend. The show was previously on indefinite hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic. Ongoing social distancing measures designed to slow the spread of the virus means that a typical SNL episode is impossible right now. But according to NBC (and they would know), SNL is returning with “remotely produced content at its usual Saturday time slot on the broadcast network.”

    The press release says that the episode “will include a version of Weekend Update and other skits from cast members.” Not even NBC was able to confirm that any of the material would be performed live, as has been the tradition for the vast majority of the show’s sketches and musical performances since its earliest days. Other than news broadcasts, very little TV content is being produced live these days; even typically live series like professional wrestling events have been shot in advance and then aired on tape. Whether live or taped, this weekend’s SNL will air in the show’s usual 11:30PM time slot.

    We could definitely use a good laugh right now, so a new SNL is certainly welcome. What exactly a show made in a studio in front of a live studio audience will look like in an era when the studio is closed and an audience is impossible should add some major curiosity factor to the first remotely produced episode. If nothing else, it will be an SNL like nothing else in the show’s history. Just look at this picture and tell me you don’t want to watch.

    Chris Brown – Welcome To My Life (feat. Cal Scruby)

    [Pre-Chorus: Chris Brown]
    Every dream in my head
    It’s like a mountain that I just keep climbing
    And when I get to the edge
    I turn around and put that dream behind me
    And it never feels the way I want
    But I keep on tryin’
    I just keep on tryin’

    [Chorus: Chris Brown]
    Have you been there?
    Have you seen it all?
    Have you done this once before?
    Did they tell you, you’ll love this life and all these lights?
    Now you’re lying on the floor
    And they know, what doesn’t kill you makes you want it more
    And this is your life
    Your life, your life

    [Post-Chorus: Chris Brown]
    Ow! Welcome to my

    [Verse 1: Cal Scruby]
    Hello, this is my life in your TV
    I overdose in that night life, them bright lights and bikinis
    I keep my hand on that gold bottle, I’m tryna find me that genie
    They say money doesn’t buy happiness, but I’d rather cry in that
    Lamborghini
    Damn, I don’t know who I am
    I just know who I wanna be
    No looking back, everything is in front of me
    I never act like they puttin’ a gun to me
    I ain’t stuck up, same motherfucker that I’ve always been
    You must’ve got me fucked up, because I ain’t tryna get that all white Benz
    Never that though
    Been on my job, sayin’ I’m different now
    Say I don’t listen now
    I don’t got time to pick up the phone to hear what you bitching ’bout
    I’m on a mission, feel like I’m missin’ now
    Bitch you ain’t in my position now
    You never walked a mile in my shoes
    I’m feeling so distant now

    [Chorus: Chris Brown]
    Have you been there?
    Have you seen it all?
    Have you done this once before?

    [Verse 2: Cal Scruby]
    I’ve been thinkin’ too much, I wonder if I did that right
    I’ve been drinkin’ too much, I don’t know what I did last night
    Tried talk to myself like, you don’t really wanna live that life
    I wanted it all to myself like, you don’t wanna give that life, away
    But I gotta leave, I can’t stay
    Part of me say "Keep going", that other hand say "Quit playing"
    Gotta keep prayin’ (prayin’)
    Even when I got it all , all these broads and alcohol
    Livin’ on the edge, I’m bound to fall (fall)
    But I stay movin’, stay climbin’ (climbin’)
    Puttin’ in work, I stay grindin’ (grindin’)
    Lookin’ for the answer, can’t find it (can’t find it)
    That’s the truth, I can’t hide it (hide it)
    Now or never forever, that’s how I’m livin’ my life
    It’s hard to plan for tomorrow, when you just live for the night

    [Pre-Chorus: Chris Brown]
    Every dream in my head
    It’s like a mountain that I just keep climbing
    And when I get to the edge
    I turn around and put that dream behind me
    And it never feels the way I want
    But I keep on tryin’
    I just keep on tryin’

    Bryson Tiller – Set It Off (True To Self Album)

    [Intro: Faith Evans & Bryson Tiller]
    Oh, my inspiration comes from you, oh
    So you think you got what it takes
    To be my ride or die?
    Okay
    We shall see

    [Verse 1]
    Ayy, I been out here soul searchin’
    Ayy, say you still got it, girl, what makes you so certain?
    Hit it, quit it, then went cold turkey
    You been committed through this whole journey
    Got a girl that don’t expect as much from me
    That’s why she gets so much love from me
    She just might be the one for me
    Ain’t no need to question, down bitch

    [Chorus]
    She ‘a pull the gun for me
    Pop 2, she ‘a take one for me
    Set it off, if a bitch come for me
    Set if off, if a nigga come for me
    She ‘a pull the gun for me
    Pop 2, she ‘a take one for me
    Set it off, if a bitch come for me
    Set it off, if a nigga come

    [Verse 2]
    Do you remember them days, I would cut school and come to you
    Ma’ was cool so I got comfortable
    Sleeping on the couch, sneak up to your room, ayy
    I found out you was a freak too soon, ayy
    Your family thought we had baby too soon, phh
    I told your family not to speak too soon, ayy
    Three years later, I’m on TV
    Now your brother, he envy me
    I don’t know what the fuck he be on, ayy
    Cool with me cool, we was never friends
    He put your mama under stress, I put her in a Benz
    Even though she put me in the streets, she made amends
    Watchin’ over my baby’s nigga
    ‘Case her son wanna go back to his ways and be a street nigga
    Plus my girl just copped the heat, nigga
    And she gon’ kill almost any nigga
    Including me, nigga
    Ain’t nobody who could be with her, ‘cept for me
    That’s my down bitch

    [Chorus]
    She ‘a pull the gun for me
    Pop two, she ‘a take one for me
    Set it off, if a bitch come for me
    Set it off, if a nigga come for me
    She ‘a pull the gun for me
    Pop two, she ‘a take one for me
    Set it off, if a bitch come for me
    Set it off, if a nigga come for me

    [Verse 1: Styles P]
    I am a brown guy
    But don’t call me nigga, please
    Nigga please, you see that white boy, that’s a nigga b
    Nigga ain’t a color, it’s a mindstate, you diggin’ me?
    Maybe not, I get it tho
    But all them white boys blowin’ weed they some niggas too
    The difference is they got white privileges
    Cops will kill me but I doubt that they kill ’em too
    This ain’t a stab or a jab
    But I’m feeling kinda mad they ain’t treated like a villain too
    His weed is good as mine, his gun bigger than mine
    And he motherfucking chilling too
    Now if my color make you hate me then I hope you go blind
    And can’t see what your children do
    Now that sound kinda harsh
    But you would feel like I feel if you had black children too
    Racism make you sayin’ and I shoulda have your man
    Sittin’ there with the sick face
    A dickface, you a dickhead
    And what you gonna to with all the people from a mixed race
    America is a sick place (you know)
    But we paint it to be good
    This is big city talk that we spreadin’ worldwide
    Coming from a humble nigga coming out a poor hood, ghost

    Life of a brown guy
    Travel ’round the would with the name of a Muslim man
    Now there are some up- and some downsides
    The downside is niggas get their spinal cord shattered in police vans
    I ain’t a Muslim but my friends is
    Grew up Christian now I’m sorta spiritual I know it’s cliché
    I see colors in the music
    We switch it up, you see the gods mix it up like a DJ
    You say you’re hating based on race, huh
    And that you’re colorblind and you like Hip-Hop
    Like that’s some kind of call like you can’t get punched in the face, huh
    That’s why the Hindus and the Sikhs being abused by Islamophobes
    Extremism is ugly no matter what or where
    People who don’t believe in god kill all the time
    The Bible more violent than the Quran, you see what’s in there?
    Ain’t no belief system got a monopoly on all the crime
    I judge a man by his actions and by his enemies
    But they don’t show themselves without a good reason
    This ain’t a TV show, nigga
    They think they know the hood cause they seen The Wire, the good seasons
    I don’t need your sympathy
    I don’t need your empathy your opinion is not required here
    That’s why you’re hidin’ on the Internet
    ‘Cause all that ‘Nigga’-shit you’re writin’ will probably get you fired, yeah
    Fucked up, too

    STOLAR – Feel good

    I’ve been up in my head all day
    Wow me up, I might be going insane
    Watching all my friends on the TV again
    Singing all the songs that I wrote for them
    Might be on to getting my own way
    Head up to the rooftop, smoke a little too much
    Know I’m gonna lose my voice again
    And I wanna unlock, laughing til we can’t stop

    Kendrick Lamar – ELEMENT. Lyrics

    [Intro: Kid Capri]
    New Kung Fu Kenny
    Ain’t nobody prayin’ for me
    Y’all know, what happens on Earth stays on Earth
    Here we go!
    I don’t give a fuck, I don’t give a fuck
    I don’t give a, I don’t give a, I don’t give a fuck

    [Verse 1]
    I’m willin’ to die for this shit
    I done cried for this shit, might take a life for this shit
    Put the Bible down and go eye for an eye for this shit
    D.O.T. my enemy, won’t catch a vibe for this shit, ayy
    I been stomped out in front of my mama
    My daddy commissary made it to commas
    Bitch, all my grandmas dead
    So ain’t nobody prayin’ for me, I’m on your head, ayy
    Thirty millions later, know the feds watchin’
    Auntie on my telegram, like, “Be cautious!”
    I be hangin’ out at Tam’s, I be on Stockton
    I don’t do it for the ‘Gram, I do it for Compton
    I’m willin’ to die for this shit, nigga
    I’ll take your fuckin’ life for this shit, nigga
    We ain’t goin’ back to broke, family sellin’ dope
    That’s why you maney-ass rap niggas better know

    [Chorus]
    If I gotta slap a pussy-ass nigga, I’ma make it look sexy
    If I gotta go hard on a bitch, I’ma make it look sexy
    I pull up, hop out, air out, made it look sexy
    They won’t take me out my element
    Nah, take me out my element

    [Verse 2]
    I’m allergic to a bitch nigga, ayy
    An imaginary rich nigga, ayy
    Seven figures, hoe, that slimmer than my bitch figure, ayy
    Goin’ digital and physical on all y’all, ayy
    Bunch of criminals and money in my phone calls, ayy
    We okay, we let the A1 fly
    Relocate, jump on the same G5
    Checkin’ for me heavy ’cause I go yeah, I go yeah
    They never been ready—yeah, I know yeah, know yeah
    100K spread ‘cross the floor, ‘cross the floor, yeah
    None of y’all fuckin’ with the flow yeah, the flow yeah
    Years in the makin’, and don’t y’all mistake it
    I got ’em by a landslide, we talkin’ about races
    You know this’ll never be a tie, just look at their laces
    You know careers take off, just gotta be patient
    Mr. One through Five, that’s the only logic
    Fake my death, go to Cuba, that’s the only option

    [Chorus]
    If I gotta slap a pussy-ass nigga, I’ma make it look sexy
    If I gotta go hard on a bitch, I’ma make it look sexy
    I pull up, hop out, air out, made it look sexy
    They won’t take me out my element
    Nah, take me out my element

    [Bridge]
    Damned if I do, if I don’t (yuhhh)
    Goddamn us all if you won’t(yuhhh)
    Damn, damn, damn, it’s a goddamn shame
    You ain’t frontline, get out the goddamn way

    [Verse 3]
    Niggas thought they wasn’t gonna see me, huh?
    Niggas thought that K-Dot real life
    Was the same life they see on TV, huh?
    Niggas wanna flex on me and be in L.A. for free, huh?
    Next time they hit the 10 freeway, we need receipt, huh?
    ‘Cause most of y’all ain’t real
    Most of y’all gon’ squeal
    Most of y’all just envy, but jealousy get you killed
    Most of y’all throw rocks and try to hide your hand
    Just say his name and I promise that you’ll see Candyman
    Because it’s all in your eyes, most of y’all tell lies
    Most of y’all don’t fade, most of y’all been advised
    Last LP I tried to lift the black artists
    But it’s a difference between black artists and wack artists

    [Outro: Kendrick Lamar & Kid Capri]
    If I gotta slap a pussy-ass nigga, I’ma make it look sexy
    It’s the one and only, the world’s greatest, the Kid Capri
    If I gotta go hard on a bitch, I’ma make it look sexy
    I pull up, hop out, air out, made it look sexy
    They won’t take me out my element
    Nah, take me out my element
