Today is the birthday of the iconic Walt Disney, born in 1901 and who passed away in 1966 at age 65. He created Mickey Mouse when he was 27 and even provided the voice for him!
Walt will be back in theaters, kinda sorta, when Tom Hanks plays him in the new movie "Saving Mr. Banks," about the making of "Mary Poppins"
HERE IS AN APP THAT REVEALS WHICH FACEBOOK FRIENDS SECRETLY HATE YOU!
We all have a few Facebook friends that we keep just so we can compare our lives to theirs. Now there's a new app that claims it can reveal which of your Facebook friends secretly hate you. HateWithFriends.com asks users to log in with their Facebook account before bringing up their list of Facebook friends and asking the user to reveal who they secretly "hate" by clicking on a button below each face. If the person being rated has also used the service and the "hatred" is mutual, the site will send an e-mail informing both parties. The creator of the app says it isn't meant to be taken seriously, and says, "It's meant to be some fun and social commentary on the current status of Facebook."

On this day in 1901, Movie producer Walt Disney was born in Chicago. He died on December 15, 1966 at the age of 65. He created Mickey Mouse at age 27 and also was the original voice. Walt will be back in theaters when Tom Hanks plays him in the movie SAVING MR. BANKS this month:
On Dec. 20, CBS will rebroadcast "The Christmas Episode" of "I Love Lucy," and that's big news. But here's the kicker: The episode has been colorized.
Surreal? Yes. Legend has it that when "The Christmas Episode" first aired in December of 1956, star Lucille Ball had mixed feelings about it. (See "The Lucy Book: A Complete Guide to Her Five Decades on Television" by Geoffrey Mark Fidelman for more details.) For whatever reason, the holiday episode was taken out of syndication, much to the chagrin of the iconic series' massive fan base. And now, it's back.
In the sneak-peek clip below, Ricky (Desi Arnaz) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) are untangling Christmas lights and singing "Jingle Bells" when Lucy decides to join in... in endearingly off-key fashion. The dynamics are evergreen, but the colors lend new life to the classic.

Three kids got on a New York subway and re-enacted a scene from A CHRISTMAS STORY as others watched and enjoyed..
Walkin' Walken: A photo recently went viral on Reddit showing veteran actor Christopher Walken sitting in the back seat of a car with two of his fans in the driver and passenger seats. The fans spotted the 70-year-old walking in New York City last month and offered him a ride to his destination. One of the fans recalled the ride to the Gothamist saying, "He wasn't weirded out by the situation. We were really nice and told him we were fans and would be honored to give him a lift. He was totally cool with it. When we stopped at his destination, he didn't immediately get out. We finished the conversation." According to the fan, they drove about 40 blocks down the city's West Side and Walken even gave one of them acting advice. To see the picture he took with his fans, click here: http://bit.ly/1eQmaeh
