Bob Barker Returns To ‘Price Is Right,’ Brings The House Down (Video)

Bob Barker Returns To The Price Is Right

I’m usually fond of most holidays and celebrating them and being festive and such. April Fools’ Day is not one of those holidays. In fact, one could consider me the Scrooge McDuck of that particular holiday (or regular Scrooge, if you want to be less awesome). I would delete it from existence if I had the god powers to do so.

Anyway! One thing great that did happen among the mess of trickery and pranks yesterday was the one and only Bob Barker returning to The Price is Right in a surprise appearance when current host Drew Carey was announced. And as you might have guessed, the place went totally nuts.

You can check out a video of Barker’s return to hosting duties below, as well as a cool behind the scenes with Barker and Carey taking some questions from the audience.

Smithsonian Museum Puts Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet On Display For April Fools’ Day (Video)

Wonder Woman's invisible jet

The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. unveiled a special limited exhibition today in honor of April Fools’ Day that was sure to delight comic book fans and lovers of a good joke alike: Wonder Woman‘s famous invisible jet.

The iconic aircraft that DC Comics’ legendary Amazonian superhero used for transportation was displayed in the museum’s Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall; in order to make enough room, both SpaceShip One and Charles Lindbergh’s “Spirit of St. Louis” had to be temporarily relocated. Museum staff also had to take certain steps to ensure the exhibit was a resounding success.

You can see a video about the display below.

April Fool's Day review

April Fool’s Day
Directed by Fred Walton
Written by Danilo Bach
Produced by Frank Mancuso, Jr.
Starring Deborah Foreman, Griffin O’Neal, Clayton Rohner, Jay Baker, Pat Barlow
Paramount Pictures
DVD | Instant Video
Original release dates: March 27, 1986

It only feels appropriate today to discuss one of the truly original horror films of one of the most unoriginal eras in horror history. The 1980s churned out hundreds of slasher films with disturbingly similar plots and characters. And since 1974’s Black Christmas, it felt every holiday got its own horror film; including Halloween, New Year’s Evil, and My Bloody Valentine. So it only made sense in 1986 to make another seasonal slasher: April Fool’s Day.

Directed by Fred Walton, a horror aficionado whose 1979 When a Stranger Calls contains one of the great openings in horror history, April Fool’s Day is possibly the most unique thriller of the 80s, and an inspiration for the self-referential horror films in the mid-90s. The story is about Muffy St. John (Deborah Foreman), a rich teenager who is having a birthday bash in her island mansion. The most 80s group of friends show up to ferry over for the party. There’s the stoner guy, the hot popular couple, the blonde bimbo, the jock looking to score (a hilarious post Back to the Future Biff Tannen aka Thomas F. Wilson), and of course Harvey (Jay Baker) the Michael J. Fox-esque young Republican in training.

Spider-Man To Cameo In Every New ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie

Ghostbusters Spider-Man

Amid the fuss and furor of the massive Sony Pictures e-mail hack that nearly brought the powerful Hollywood movie studio to its knees late last year, one piece of information regarding their future franchise plans managed to stay secret. Until now…

A while back, Sony and Marvel Studios reached a deal to share the popular Spider-Man character, a move that pleased many longtime fans of the iconic superhero who believe that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is where he truly belongs. Something that wasn’t revealed to the world when the news broke was Sony’s intentions to unite their Spider-Man franchise with the shared universe they’re developing around their stagnant Ghostbusters property. The idea is to bring each and every one of their exploitable franchises under one massive umbrella, and since all they have right now are Spider-Man and Ghostbusters, they have a heckuva task on their hands.

Kickstarter Launches Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

Kickstarter Logo

In an amazing turn of events, crowdfunding site Kickstarter has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help cover the cost of revamping their own website. With a modest goal of $10,000, this is sure to be a hit with patrons of both sites.

Referencing the slicker, more modern look of Indiegogo’s homepage, an unnamed Kickstarter executive said that if all goes well, the new site should be up and running within a few weeks of the campaign completing. When asked if it seemed odd that a crowdfunding site was using a different fundraising site to gain the capital needed, the Kickstarter employee (not Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler, Lance Ivy, Fred Benenson, Cedric Howe, Kendel Ratley, Mike McGregor, Justin Kazmark, Tieg Zaharia, Jed Meade, Nicole He, Aaron Suggs, Zack Sears, Stephanie Pereira, Aurora Thornhill, Alex Cox, Andrew Boyajian, Dan Drabik, Brandon Williams, Tomasz Werner, Katherine Pan, Bridget Best, Shannon Ferguson, Niina Pollari, Ian Scott, Luke Crane, Michal Rosenn, Christopher Wright, Michael Stewart, Jake Loeterman, Shayne Barr, John Dimatos, Jamie Tanner, David Gallagher, George Schmalz, Amanda Niu, Terry Romero, Hayley Rosenblum, Carol Benovic, Jeremy Salfen, Justin Jones, Taylor Moore, Megan McFerren, Liz Cook, Natalie Ung, Julio Terra, Katie Needs, Victoria Rogers, Julie Wood, Nitsuh Abebe, Alex Proba, Chase Pashkowich, Nick Yulman, Craig Engler, Margot Atwell, Sam Hockley-Smith, David Peter, Dana Haynes, Alfie Palao, Charlie Mirisola, Margaret Raimondi, Maris Kreizman, Jes Nelson, Sara Rowghani, Jon Leland, Melissa Wong, Win Giamportone, Owen Katz, Katie Mandel, Alex Hudson, Emma Tangoren, Ryan Closner, Nigel Warren, Kevin Showkat, Keith Holjencin, Jackson Lynch, Scott Briggs, Marissa Demers, Christine Tadler, Ben Linsay, Renee Park, Dan Schoenbrun, Jason Goss, James Turnbull, Catie Myers-Wood, Dina Neishtadt, Kilian McMahon, Willis Plummer, Travis Brace, Susanna Brumm, Meg Heim, Ben Cole, Rebecca Poulson, Kewhyun Kelly-Yuoh, Lindsey Smith, Stephanie Li, Julie Swoope, Noah Kardos-Fein, Maren Mitchell, Sid Orlando, Rebecca Sliter, Sophia Ng, Chris Beck, Lili Burns, Willa Koerner, Raul Reymundi, Susan Hinton, or Lena Imamura) explained that with Indiegogo they got to keep whatever they raised, making it a win/win situation regardless of the outcome. Will this be a success?

Pi Day Of The Century Is Here: 3.141592653
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Pi Day 2015 epic

Do you like pi? I’m not talking about fruit or custard in a round pastry shell like those made with apples, cherries, or lemon meringue.

I am talking about a mathematical constant that shows up almost everywhere in our understanding of the universe, symbolized by the Greek letter “π”. This is pronounced “pi.” It is the ratio of the diameter of a circle to its circumference, or more plainly, the ratio of how tall a circle is to the distance traveled when it rolled exactly once around.

Every year, Pi Day is observed on 3/14, since 3.14 are the first three digits of pi. But twice today, 3/14/2015, we’ll get to see the clock hit the first 10 digits of pi — 3.141592653 — an occurrence that won’t happen again for another 100 years.
