‘E.T.’s’ Henry Thomas Admits Ending Still Makes Him Cry
It's nice to know we're not the only ones -- Henry Thomas, star of 'E.T.,' admitted the movie's ending makes him weep like a little baby as well. Thomas was on the 'Today' show for an interview to promote the movie, which is being re-released on Blu-ray for its 30t…
The Best Nostalgic Halloween Songs
We're really getting into the Halloween spirit here at TheFW. It's nothing new -- it's always been one of our favorite holidays (right after Arbor Day). So, while we enjoying settling down with a good (bad) scary movie, sometimes we wax a little nostalgic. These are the songs from our childhood that…
Meet the Man with Over 600 Cabbage Patch Kids
To Dan Knowlton, his Cabbage Patch Kids are his children. "They're easier to cope with." True -- they never grow or die or have to maintain necessary life functions, but that doesn't mean you need 600 of them.
John Cusack Channels Lloyd Dobler, Holds Boombox at Peter Gabriel Concert
Here's something for all you painfully nostalgic types out there. It's video footage of John Cusack awkwardly shuffling onstage with a boombox and handing it to Peter Gabriel before he performed "In Your Eyes" in concert over the weekend.
Adorable Kids Discuss Politics, Quickly Get Off Topic
Watching kids try to answer questions about politics is like watching a cat look at itself in the mirror -- it's funny because they don't know what we know. And also it's really cute. For example, our president is "Broccoli Llama," and when asked what party she belon…
‘Clueless’ Cast (Mostly) Reunites 17 Years Later
First 'The Princess Bride,' and now the cast of 'Clueless' are getting back together. It's been a good week for reunions.
Exclusive! Sarah Bourland, of Stingray Photobomb Fame, Tells the Story Behind the Meme
Until now, we had been assuming that the so-called "Perverted Stingray," who "photo bombed" some nice young women on vacation and created an internet sensation, was just happening by when the photo was snapped. Sarah Bourland, the lady on the left in the photo, le…
See What Would Happen If Disney Villains Won
Artist and Mouse House fan Justin McTwisp thought it would be interesting to see what it would look like if the bad guys won at the end of a few Disney movies. We have to admit, that's a pretty banging coat Cruella DeVille winds up with (except for the whole puppy thing). And, truth be told, the fai…
‘Potato Jesus’ Costume Can’t Be Beat This Halloween
You might not have even known you were competing for the title of 2012's Best Halloween Costume, but you just lost. The guy who made this 'Ecce Homo'/ Potato Jesus/ Good Grief, This Lady Can't Paint costume just beat us all.
Surfing Dogs Hang Ten at ‘Surf City’
That's Sugar, the surf dog riding the biggest wave ever by a dog his size in a small dog surfing contest. It happened this weekend at Surf City Surf Dog -- a weekend-long event in Huntingdon Beach, California. We've got lots of pictures of the event too, which means you get to experience t…
Patient Cat Tolerates Cute Baby Gibbon
We commend this cat, whose patience is dangling by a thread. If cats can grind their teeth, then Chuck (named after her propensity for barfing) must be doing it for this whole video, as extremely playful (and handsy) baby gibbon APEril climbs all over her...
Watch 32 Metronomes Sync Up (It’s Science!)
We realize asking people to stare at a bunch of out-of-sync metronomes is kind of a hard sell, but this is actually really cool. For a while it seems like it's not going to happen, then, magically (note: technically physics, not magic), they do. Here's why.
