Liam Neeson has a real special talent. A special set of skills. He’s not just an incredible actor… he can bring the intensity like no one else!
So of course when Jimmy Kimmel needed an actor to read a bedtime story, he’d pick Liam Neeson.
The story? A classic children’s book: Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed!
You take a cute kids story, and add the Taken actor’s gravely voice and intense stare… and you get something kinda terrifying.

We’re pretty sure if he read us even one more bedtime story, we’d never be able to sleep again. LOLz!

The sudden and tragic death of American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s Ben Woolf is still weighing heavy on the AHS family and fans.
So, creator Ryan Murphy and FX have volunteered to help cover some of the costs from the memorial that Woolf’s family is having for him in Santa Barbara on March 21st.

The entire AHS cast is invited, and attendees are asked to wear red and blue, since those were Ben’s favorite colors.
Ways that fans can help remember Ben, according to his dad Nick Woolf, are to donate to the Ben Woolf fund, which will place memorial park “BENches” in his honor, and it will donate to Ben’s favorite charities, including the Story Teller Children’s Center and Little People Of America.
Ben is already missed, but it’s great that his memory will live on!

It’s finally here!
The American Horror Story season finale is upon us, and it with it, a whole lot of death!
We’ve had a love/hate relationship with Freak Show this year, but Ryan Murphy sure does know how to keep us on our toes.
So without further ado, let’s get into the review of Wednesday night’s finale:
The episode begins right where last week’s left off, with Dandy (Finn Witrock) running the show. Unfortunately for him, the freaks don’t love his idea to make the show all about his singing, so they all decide to quit!
We then get to see Elsa (Jessica Lange) trying to make it in Hollywood, but she doesn’t have much luck until she meets another German named Michael (David Burtka).
Back at the camp, Dandy regains his homicidal spirit and murders Paul (Mat Fraser), Penny (Grace Gummer), Suzi (Rose Siggins), Ima (Chrissy Metz), Eve (Erika Ervin), and a bunch of the other freaks but spares Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), only to tie them up.
Jimmy (Evan Peters) eventually makes his way back to the freak show after getting his new hands but finds every single one of his family dead, with the exception for Desiree (Angela Bassett) whom was able to avoid Dandy’s murderous rampage.
The twins are then forced to marry Dandy, but drug him with Des’ help instead!
The remaining freaks lock Dandy in a magician’s box and slowly fill it with water, telling him if he wants to live, he has to escape like the freak he so badly wants to be.
Years later, a flash-forward tells us that Elsa has won three Emmys and has made it onto the Hollywood walk of fame, while also marrying Michael.
However, things aren’t exactly as they seem, and Elsa and Michael aren’t exactly happy…
After resisting a Halloween show over fear of summoning Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), Elsa agrees to the act when her contract is at risk when the truth about how she lost her legs comes out.
The season ends with a pregnant Bette and Dot living happily with Jimmy; Desiree having a family of her own; and Elsa being sent to a sort of purgatory by Edward and Twisty (John Carroll Lynch).
We get to see Elsa one last time at the freak show with all of the deceased freaks, including Ma Petite (Jyoti Amge) and Ethel (Kathy Bates).
That was a surprisingly well-thought out ending, but the rest of the episode was rather terrible. We were strung along falling in love with these characters for a whole season, only to have all of them die with barely any fight.
Will we ever learn!? Probably not… so make sure to tune in next season when we do this all again.
P.S. We’re putting our money on an ’80s-inspired summer camp theme!
P.P.S. Our official ranking of the seasons: Asylum. Murder House. Freak Show. Season 5 that hasn’t happened yet. Coven.
Such a heroic kitty!
A cat from Obninsk, Russia recently did some amazingness by keeping an abandoned baby warm until someone finally found the baby and brought the little one to the hospital!
Not only did the cat named Masha use its fur to keep the baby’s body warm, but the kitty also meowed to get the attention of passerby to recognize that a baby was there!
Which someone finally did!
And it’s a good thing they did as the baby had only been outside for a few hours at that point, but the weather was already in the 30′s!
Here’s what a hospital spokesperson said:
“The baby had only been outside for a few hours and thanks to Masha … he was not damaged by the experience.”

The cat had found the baby in the cardboard box and had climbed in to keep the little one warm.
And the meows coming from the box made one Obninsk city resident named Irina Lavrova pause since the stray cat is usually really quiet! Here’s what Irina said:
“She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself. Normally she would have come and said hello to me. You can imagine my shock when I saw her lying in a box next to a baby…Clearly her mothering instincts had taken over and she wanted to protect the child. He was well-dressed with a little hat, and whoever left him here had even left a few nappies and some baby food.”
After the baby was taken to the hospital, the lil’ boy was declared by the hospital as totally fit and healthy.
And locals could NOT be more proud of the cat!
“Everyone in the block is very proud of her. We have all spoiled her rotten by giving her her favorite food.”
Spoiling a hero rotten sounds pretty good to us!

Obligatory ***Slightly-NSFW & SPOILER*** warning: If you didn’t watch Wednesday night’s episode of American Horror Story then STOP reading right now!
Wednesday’s episode of Freak Show gave us a whole ton of flashbacks and back story, and we actually really enjoyed it!
And even if we didn’t love it, we’re still addicted, so let’s get straight to that recap!
The episode started off with Pepper (Naomi Grossman) finding her fellow pinhead Salty (Christopher Neiman) dead, and the audience seeing that it was, yet again, the work of Stanley (Denis O’Hare).
Pepper, understandably, couldn’t deal with the loss of her pertner in crime, so she freaked out pretty hard in front of Desiree (Angela Bassett).
When Desiree confronted Elsa (Jessica Lange) about the outburst, we found out via flashback that Pepper was given away by her sister, married Salty, and adopted Ma Petite (Jyoti Amge).
We then got a look at Desiree’s new act, while also learning how Maggie (Emma Roberts) and Stanley got together as convicts.
Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson) gave Maggie money to get Jimmy (Evan Peters) a lawyer, but before she could be of any help, she found out that Stanley had sold his lobster hands to the museum!
Now, with all of her family dead, Elsa brought Pepper back to her sisters, but that’s when things got even crazier.
We flashforwarded to AHS: Asylum times and learned that Pepper was framed for killing her nephew and that her evil sister was just as bad as ever and sent her to the crazy house for nothing!
While we totally feel terrible for Pepper, it was really awesome to see Lily Rabe again!
Plus, we’re a little skeptical about Jimmy really losing his hands, because we didn’t see it happen, and we totally got the feeling that Stanley was trying to get into Jimmy’s pants, not his digits.
Freak Show won’t be back to finish off its season until Jan. 7, 2015, but we’re actually back into this season and are excited to see how it ends.
Plus, Neil Patrick Harris is finally showing up!
Until next time!
Turns out that Mohammed “Mo” Islam isn’t good at making millions. But he is good at making up stories.
The 17-year-old Stuyvesant High School student became an instant sensation after a story in Monday’s New York Magazine stated that he made million in stock trading during his cafeteria breaks.
Monday afternoon, Islam reduced the figure, saying that he only made eight figures.
Monday evening, he admitted to The New York Observer to fabricating the entire story.
I run an investment club at Stuy High which does only simulated trades. All I can say is for the simulated trades, I was very successful. The returns were incredible and outperformed the S&P.
Yup, Islam was basically playing with play money. He says the story got “hyped up beyond belief.”
It may have cost the teen something worth more than millions — his family’s respect.
Honestly, my dad wanted to disown me. My mom basically said she’d never talk to me. Their morals are that if I lie about it and don’t own up to it then they can no longer trust me. … They knew it was false and they basically wanted to kill me and I haven’t spoken to them since.
I am incredibly sorry for any misjudgment and any hurt I caused. The people I’m most sorry for is my parents. I did something where I can no longer gain their trust. I have one sister, two years younger, and we don’t really talk.
The lesson kids? Don’t cry wolf. And don’t pretend to be the next Wolf of Wall Street.
