Man Attempts To Find His Manic Pixie Dream Girlfriend On Craigslist, Likely Fails
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Attention men with insanely specific criteria for your "dream woman" -- please stop posting about it, especially on Craigslist. One such dude took to the Missed Connections section of the Brooklyn site on Nov. 1 to ask the world whether his "Imaginary Girlfreind [sic]" exists. Sorry to break your heart, man, but probably not. Here are eight of this 25-year-old gentleman's imaginary lady-friend requirements: 1. They've known each other for over a decade. We have been going out in my head since I was 12. We have aged and grown together. You are my safe warm place. I daydream about your fictitious character when the world gets dark. I think about us watching a movie that changed both our lives or how we back each other up in conversations with other people. 2. She needs to be very tall and hip -- but NOT a hipster. You are about 6 foot tall now. Short black hair with a bit of a fringe. Your skin is sallow. You dress well but you don't let ''hipster culture'' define anything ...

'Knight's Tale' Becoming A TV Show From 'Battlestar Galactica' Showrunner
MTV News - over 5 years
Ron Moore is heading from outer space to medieval times. The "Battlestar Galactica" showrunner will next tackle a television version of "A Knight's Tale" that has been picked up by ABC. Deadline has the news, reporing that "the series is expected to stay close to the premise and the style of the movie -- it is described as a medieval fantasy incorporating modern music and themes that follows the journey of a young man who starts out impersonating a knight of the realm and ends up becoming one." The 2001 feature film starred Heath Ledger as the titular knight, Shannyn Sossamon as his love interest and Paul Bettany as Geoffrey Chaucer. As fans of Moore will know, he's more than adept at adapting previously successful projects to the small screen. Though it might seem like a strange choice to have him tackle "A Knight's Tale," we'd argue that this is some of the best television news we've heard in a long time. First off: if you haven't seen "Battlestar Galactica" already, fix t...

With the awesome news that Giuliana and Bill welcomed their baby boy Edward Duke Rancic into the world this week, we have babies on the brain. That got us thinking about all the bizarre baby names stars love to give their celebrity spawn. If a regular citizen named their firstborn Pineapple Ninja-Hunter Feather, Child Protective Services wouldn’t be far behind. But when an eccentric celebrity gives their baby boy Superman’s birth name from the destroyed mythical planet of Krypton, he or she gets a big fat congratulations on the cover of People magazine. With that in mind, we’ve ranked the weirdest celebrity baby names: 14. Sage Moonblood, the oldest son of Sylvester Stallone and Sasha Czack 13.
