Around Northern Michigan
A Northern Michigan woman won the top prize at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids! Ann Loveless from Frankfort is taking home $200,000 for her submission “Sleeping Bear Dune Lakeshore.” It took her 400 hours of sewing to complete the piece. Well done!
What's Up in Entertainment
Miley Cyrus was the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. I have to say, she did an AMAZING job singing “Wrecking Ball” and an acoustic version of “We Can't Stop.” A bit of controversy erupted both on Facebook and Twitter after the skit, “We Did Stop.” It was about the government shut down and Miley played a sexy Michelle Bachmann who licked an Abraham Lincoln doll. For the record, I thought it was funny. Check it out!
“Gravity” with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney nailed the #1 spot at the movies this weekend. “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” came in 2nd and “Runner Runner” with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck came in 3rd. By the way, 1st place brought in $55.55 million and 3rd $7.6 million, just a small difference!
There will be some changes to late night TV coming soon with Jay Leno stepping out, Fallon stepping up and Seth Meyers coming in but no changes on CBS. Word is CBS has extended David Letterman's contract through 2015.
Have you seen these hilarious commercials with Will Ferrell, err I mean Ron Burgundy? Dodge is being brilliant and using him as a spokesperson. So funny! Not only do I want a Dodge now, I can't wait to see “Anchorman 2!”
Wow! Props to this driver for avoid a FLYING CAR! It's reported that both drivers are okay...
Child asks who is quieter, a Navy Seal or a Ninja? The Seal's reply is great!
