ROBOT WITH FACIAL EXPRESSIONS


We've said it before and we'll say it again, scientists must never watch sci-fi movies because here we are again with another scary robot development that will eventually lead to mankind's downfall.

15 YEARS OF FOX SEARCHLIGHT



Fox Searchlight has been around for 15 years now, releasing their first film, The Brothers McMullen, in 1995. Since then, they've brought us Sideways, Sexy Beast, Sunshine, Thank You for Smoking, just to name a few of my personal favorites. Here are two videos celebrating the anniversary and with movies like these, I'm hoping Fox Searchlight is around forever.

PEE-WEE TAKES NEW YORK

Our last post featured a photo I found online of Pee-wee Herman riding a subway car in New York with no explanation. Now we know the rest of the story. Pee-wee has a Broadway show!

Pee-wee Herman, real name Paul Reubens, has a new Broadway show and he is hitting the streets to promote it. The comedian and TV star has started a self-hosted tour of New York City, visiting its most famous of sights.

Pee-wee recently appeared on the renowned Regis & Kelly program in hopes of promoting his unexpected return to entertainment on Broadway.

The bus tour takes New York visitors all about, beginning at the Intercontinental Hotel in Times Square, and going from the Upper West Side over to the Lincoln Square American Folk Art Museum. Next, it heads off to Brooklyn Bridge before finally concluding at "M&M World."

The Broadway show he has been promoting is to be aptly named The Pee Wee Herman Show, and will begin its 10-week run in just a few weeks on October 26 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

The show will be a stage comedy/play with music, featuring Pee-wee Herman, played by Paul Reubens, and many other members of the TV show "Pee-wee's Playhouse" such as Mailman Mike, played by John Moody; Miss Yvonne, played by Lynne Marie Stewart; and Cowboy Curtis, played by Phil Lamarr.

Most ticket prices are between $66 to $122, though premium seats are available from $177 to $227.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to book a trip to New York.


WHY DON'T YOU TAKE A PICTURE, IT'LL LAST LONGER!


I have no idea of the story behind this photo, I simply found it here but we're big fans of Pee-wee Herman here on DSTG! and couldn't resist sharing this photo. If you know any details, send the info our way. Til then, "I know you are but what am I?!?"

MUST SEE TV


But unfortunately, American television will never see the likes of this Japanese series The Ancient Dogoo Girl, which is a real shame considering the new fall line-up. I'd much rather watch this than How I Met Your Mother.
