Here's What's Trending Today!

 

Ever wonder what Morgan Freeman would sound like on Helium...we did...and it's pretty darned funny. 

We could tell you that this clip below is from the fifth season of Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole, a documentary series exploring the mysteries of of the universe that returns June 4. But all that does is delay getting to the point, which is that this clip features the show’s distinguished host Morgan Freeman on helium. Yes, the soothing baritone of the Oscar winner who has guided us through a prison incarceration in The Shawshank Redemption, helped us survive a meteor attack in Deep Impact, and convinced us in our weak late-night hours to buy McDonalds or use our Visa card in various commercials gets squeaky on a noble gas. The best part: There’s hugely no compelling reason for him to do this in the segment, it doesn’t demonstrate any kind of scientific principle, he just does it while talking about strange situations in science. Bonus point for the balloon matching Freeman’s shirt.

 

Steve Perry hasn’t performed with Journey since 1991. But his fans never stopped believin’. Everyone’s buzzing this morning about his surprise appearance Sunday night to join indie-rock band the Eels at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minn.

Perry, 65, has had health problems, notes Yahoo.com – arthritis, hip-replacement surgery in 1998, two melanoma-removal surgeries in 2013. But Sunday it just felt “right,” said Eels leader Mark Everett, for Perry to return to the stage. After hearing the audience’s enthusiastic response to Perry’s first song, Everett cracked: “They don’t applaud like that for me! I guess I gotta disappear for 25 years!”

Perry then launched into Journey classic Open Arms.

When former veterinary technician and retired truck driver Kitty Martin first met Hero the calf on a Virginia farm last spring, his hind legs were so damaged by frostbite that he had to have them both amputated. But if he were to survive after being rescued and taken to his new home with Martin in Texas, he would need some form of mobility.
