The Doors Sing “Reading Rainbow” Theme

My lurvely friend, Beryl, tipped me off to this amazing little nugget. It’s Jimmy Fallon Jim Morrison singing the theme to “Reading Rainbow” and it’s GOLD. I’m really hoping this starts a trend of awesome childhood show theme-song covers. My list of songs I’d like to see cover include:

  • The theme to “Wishbone
  • The theme to “My Little Pony
  • The theme to “Arthur
  • The theme to “Fraggle Rock
  • Really any of these – Rainbow Brite, Muppet Babies, Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Ducktales, Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Snorks, Tiny Toon Adventures, Inspector Gadget, A Pup named Scooby-Doo, Garfield and Friends, Welcome to Pooh Corner,  Eureeka’s Castle, Babar

Health Ledger’s Inspiration fot the Joker?

Few performances are as memorable as Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight and this video might just be his inspiration for the character:

Now Kotaku and Newsarama have tipped us to a 1979 interview of Tom Waits which is eerily similar to The Joker’s voice, inflections, and mannerisms. Thinking Heath Ledger’s inspiration for The Joker may have been Tom Waits isn’t as far-fetched as it seems. The two worked together in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a movie which took so long to develop that it’s conceivable the two could have met at some point before The Dark Knight filmed.

A then 29-years-old Tom Waits can be seen shambling, smirking, and being captivatingly weird in a 1979 Australian talk show hosted by Don Lane in the video below. Skip to 1:30 to see the start of the interview.

Celebrities Read Mean Tweets

Jimmy Kimmel asks celebrities to read mean tweets directed at them and it’s…. perfect. Correction: it would be perfect if Kristen Stewart could manage to act well in a measly 10 second segment but NO, that’s too difficult.

Really though, this is a great idea and I want more of this.
