Pop Culture: Dave Coulier Can’t Get Arrested

Full House veterans Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) and Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) have reunited for a five-episode web series called Can’t Get Arrested.  The duo plays themselves – along with a guest role from Saved By The Bell’s Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding) , portraying life after sitcom-stardom in a series that clearly owes a lot to Curb Your Enthusiasm.     The main difference with that show though – besides airing on HBO and starring Larry David – is that Curb is actually funny.


Pop Culture: Muppet Movie Etiquette

In preparation for next month’s return to the silver screen, The Muppets can now be seen daily at AMC theaters everywhere in this hilarious pre-film etiquette intro.   Their upcoming film, simply titled The Muppets, hits theaters November 23rd and we’re pretty sure Neil Hamel (of the Innovations team) is already in line for tickets.   Wocka, wocka, wocka!

Pop Culture: Spotify Launches Across U.S.

Last week, streaming music service Spotify finally launched to music lovers across the United States after running on invite-only mode for the past few months.  The service — which offers a catalog of 15 million tracks — is 100% free for use on PCs (with ads) and $9.99 for those who want it on-the-go via mobile devices.   It all sounds too good to be true, but somehow it’s not.

Pop Culture- Batman Returns

Photos and videos of Christopher Nolan’s Batman: The Dark Knight Rises have been circulating around the web like crazy throughout the past few weeks as the film began shooting in very public locations.   With bystanders now more connected than ever, it’s giving fans the chance to get a early glimpse at an unfinished product well in advance (and share it with the world) – for better or for worse.    Good because it’s clearly creating excitement and buzz for the movie’s release, but not-as-good (not necessarily bad) because some clips stir up controversy such as a first-listen at a new villain’s weird voice or this clip of a bulky Batwing accidentally destroying city property.  Ok, that last clip Is actually pretty amazing.
