Punkin Chunkin Announces A Two-Year Deal!

Punkin-Chunkin1

(PCM) It has just been announced by the Dover International Speedway that a two-year agreement has been reached for them to become the new host site for the World Championship Punkin Chunkin event, an annual contest that will be held Oct. 24‐26, 2014 on the Speedway grounds.

This year will mark the 28th year for the event! Punkin Chunkin has been held each year in Delaware since 1986, and sees teams from around the world compete in the sport of hurling a pumpkin solely by mechanical means for distance. Some devices used include slingshots, catapults, air cannons and more. The non‐profit event gives out scholarships to students each year.

Punkin Chunkin will take place on the same grounds the Speedway uses to host the Firefly Music Festival. For the seventh consecutive year, Science Channel will be on hand capturing every moment of the high‐stakes, unbelievable engineering and autumnal absurdity of Punkin Chunkin. In what has become a Thanksgiving Week tradition all of the high‐flying Punkin Chunkin action will world premiere on Science Channel Saturday, November 29 from 8‐10 PM ET/PT.

The Dover International Speedway is the ideal location to host Punkin Chunkin for the first time. It is located centrally in the state and features incredibly easy access off of State Route 1.

The organizers of the annual event claim that they had scouted over 50 locations inside and outside Delaware before decided that the Dover International Speedway was the ideal home for the event. The amount of available space was a huge plus as some of the air cannons used to fire off the pumpkins can shoot them nearly a mile away!

Burt Jenner Shares A T-Shirt Featuring Kim Kardashian’s “Ugly Crying Face”

 

Kim-Kardashian-crying

(PCM) Burt Jenner, the older stepbrother of Kim Kardashian, is known as the quiet brother and one who definitely spends his time outside of the spotlight that seemingly follows his famous family everywhere they travel.

Taking a major dig at his stepsister, Jenner posted a photo that features a mosaic of six pictures that all feature Kim’s infamous “ugly crying face” on a t-shirt.  He captioned the post with “My new favorite shirt…”.  Ouch!

The shirt was created to mock an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” where sister Kourtney reveals to Kim that she has an “ugly crying face”…not that anyone truly looks good when they are crying!

Burt Jenner is the son of Bruce Jenner and his first wife Chrystie Crownover and his a co-owner of Jenner Racing with his father and brother Brandon Jenner.

Now the only other question we have is where can we get our hands on one of those shirts…Christmas is less than six months away!

What We Loved (And Hated) At Comic Con 2014

KS2_4816

(PCM) Trust us, there was a lot to love at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, but with all major events there is bound to be a few things that left us a tad bit disappointed!

Here is our list, in no particular order of the things we loved the most:

1. Although we have to wait until 2015 for any new episodes, the Game Of Thrones casting news and video was surely a highlight of the weekend.

2. The surprise, unscheduled appearance from director Christopher Nolan and actor Matthew McConaughey to promote their upcoming film “Instellar”. Getting to see some more footage of this sure to be epic film was definitely an added treat.

3. During the press conference for his film “Kingsmen: The Secret Service” actor Samuel L. Jackson picked up a random reporters cellphone that had begun ringing by accident in the middle of the conference. Listening to Jackson have a hilarious phone conversation with the unknowing person on the other end of the line was priceless!  This man can do no wrong!

4. The abundance of TV trailers, clips, and pilots that were screened during this year’s convention was fantastic. We got our first looks at shows such as Constantine, Gotham, The Flash and more!  Epic trailers were revealed from both The Walking Dead, Arrow, and Sons Of Anarchy and attendees were left hungry for more!  The fall of this year, into early 2015 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for television!

5. The amazing panels for both The Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The ravenous Hall H crowd was overjoyed by both the footage show from both films, as well as, appearances by the talent. Both films are incredibly highly-anticipated and audiences are starving for any information they can get their hands on!

6. We scored an invite to the hottest party at Comic Con this year, which was A&E’s Bates Motel/Playboy party!  It was epic, so epic in fact that several celebrities looking to attend were turned away at the gate, due to fire marshals regulations not allowing anymore people to enter the venue. We had a blast enjoying the Bates Motel themed cocktails, noshing on food truck delicacies, and dancing our hearts out with cast members from Bates Motel, of course, as well as, Teen Wolf, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Grimm and so many more!  When it was time to relax, there were several comfy beds, set up to look like Bates Motel guest rooms, to chill out on!  It was very well-done!

7. Cosplay, Cosplay and more Cosplay!  Seeing everyone’s absolutely amazing costumes at this year’s SDCC was incredible. The sheer amount of time and effort that people put into creating some of these outfits is mind-blowing!  Be sure to check out our gallery coming soon!  Some of my favorites were whole families that got in on dressing up, it was great to see everyone so involved and getting into the Comic Con spirit together.

8. While it was absolutely heart-breaking, attending the final Hall H panel for the beloved FX series Sons Of Anarchy. It was not easy to watch series creator Kurt Sutter break-down and cry on stage, the amount of love and respect that this cast has for one another is incredibly inspiring and it was a beautiful moment to behold.

Now on to some of what we hated at this year’s Comic Con (it’s not a very long list)

1. Lines, lines, and more lines!! It seems as if everywhere you turn there is another type of line that you have to wait in. There were so many that we often times had to give-up and move on to the next event or panel, as we would run the risk of being stuck endlessly waiting all day long. For some this may not be a problem, but for those of us on deadline, it became increasing frustrating throughout the course of the weekend.

2. We were definitely hoping for some news about Jurassic World, Doctor Strange, and The Fantastic Four. While there is still quite a bit of time for all of those titles to make their Comic Con appearances, we were holding out hope for a couple of answers, but alas none were given.

3. The very silly and completely non-relevant questions posed by fans during the Q&A portions of several of the panels. Also, as a side note, due to time constraints many of the fan Q&A sessions were cut down by quite a bit, leaving many fans disappointed.

4. Individuals bum-rushing the booths on the floor to get their hands on every exclusive possible, and purchasing multiples. There were times where I felt that I was getting completely mowed over just making an attempt to walk through the exhibition floor. It was a little bit scary.

That’s about it for our complaints!  Again, we had an absolutely wonderful year at San Diego Comic Con 2014 and we absolutely can’t wait to be part of the Comic Con craziness again next year! Let the countdown begin!

Rob Lowe Releases A Brilliantly Cheesy Promo For Shark Week

Rob-Lowe1

(PCM) Discovery’s Shark Week is only about a week away and actor Rob Lowe has just revealed his hilarious, yet completely cheesy promo during which he only utters a single catchphrase.

In the slow-motion clip, Lowe is featured in red shorts and a white tank top, water-skiing on the backs of two sharks, all while slinging chum over his shoulders. Oh, wait, did we mention there was also a hot blonde mermaid clinging to his leg…yeah there was that, too!

The clip ends with Lowe, in a husky voice saying “So Sharky”!  Why do I seriously see this becoming the newest catchphrase of the summer!  I definitely think there are a lot of people that would be down to get ‘sharky’ with Lowe!

“I will not rest or even eat (with the exception of fruit pies) until ‘So sharky’ is the new ‘swaggy,'” Lowe tweeted later.

(PCM) The PCM team has invaded San Diego Comic Con 2014! This years convention, judging from preview night alone, appears to be bigger and better than ever. We stopped by the panel for Image Comics and the spent the entire evening navigating our way around the exhibition floor.

Just sitting outside the convention center the people watching is pure entertainment itself. There is truly never a dull moment! The line for the infamous Hall H programming was already insane with hundreds of attendees gearing up to camp all night to see their favorite panels of the day tomorrow.
