On Friday, John Boyega met Star Wars super fan, 5-year-old Daniel Bell. The youngster has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and his wish was to meet Finn. That became a reality when the two spent the afternoon hanging out and passing around toys to other sick children in a London hospital. “When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true,” the actor says. “It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine. It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive.”

Daniel’s mother meanwhile released a statement via Facebook in which she praised the actor for making her son’s wish come true. “Thank you so so much ‘Rays of Sunshine’ and John Boyega for granting Daniel’s wish to meet Finn and take toys to the hospital. It was just amazing, I have no words! Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy.” Boyega has frequently shown himself to be a real class act and nice guy, and this is yet another example of that.

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I’m just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

Mario’s Getting a Mercedes

If you’ve ever played a Super Mario game, you’re going to love the new Japanese commercial for the Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV.  In it, an 8-bit Mario smashes blocks, collects coins, and runs over baddies in a pixelated Benz. When he wraps up the level, the NES game turns live-action, and a tough looking Mario in Batman-esque armor emerges from the SUV.  Besides being a fun ad, it marks a notable shift for both Nintendo and Mercedes-Benz.  It’s the first example of Nintendo licensing its intellectual property after its president Satoru Iwata announced the company would move in this direction as it struggles to profit from games on its Wii U console, Bloomberg reports. The GLA will also be the first real-life car available in the upcoming “Mario Kart 8.”

Lil Wayne’s Sports Corner Episode 2.


Lil Wayne is kicking off the new year with new episodes of his ‘Sports Corner’ series, which show off the rapper’s love for the NFL, skateboarding and more.  Fans of Weezy know what an avid sports fan he is, and though he missed the first weekend of 2012, he’s back with eight (yes eight) new videos for audiences to devour. The clips aren’t only of the entrepreneur’s commentary — one features an interview with San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith. Never one to miss out on a promotional opportunity, Tunechi’s wardrobe consists of a tee from his own Trukfit clothing line. How do we know? Because he says so, very explicitly, and offers a link to his site, which is prominently displayed on the screen. Oh, and each video features friendly reminders about Young Money’s current and forthcoming releases.  Whether you’re into college football, college basketball, or even the video game MLB 7, you can check out all eight of Weezy’s videos below.

The Final Season Of Entourage.


Once upon a time, I knew I wanted to start about blog that revolved around the things and experiences I found interesting, and sharing those things with the world.  The blog had no real format, or direction, but when it came to interesting things, I knew the HBO show Entourage was number one on the list.  (The very first post EVER on this blog was about Entourage on DVD.)  So its only logical that as the show is coming to an end, that I post up whatever new info I can find about it.  The final season debuts on July 24th, and the teaser for it dropped recently on HBO.  It’s a simple look, and the music (‘High For This‘ by The Weeknd) makes everything a bit somber.  I have to admit, I even got a little sad the first time I saw it.  But check the teaser below.
