Media Circus: Mysterious "Lost" Numbers Make Money In The Mega Millions Jackpot!


TV: And the winning numbers for the second largest lottery drawing ($177.5 million each for two winners) are: 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, and 42. Look familiar? Of course they do, because four out of the six winning numbers were in the mysterious set of digits that were repeated throughout the six seasons of Lost: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42. Remember how Hurley (Jorge Garcia) won the lottery and bad luck with them and went crazy? As co-creator Damon Lindelof noted on Twitter, 9,078 people played Hurley's numbers, meaning each won $150. That's nice, but we're seeking far greater punitive damages for that bullshit finale. [CBS News]

Politics: After two years, Robert Gibbs is out as President Obama's Press Secretary. He announced his resignation from the post this morning. His legacy will be best known for his sarcastic conferences—him mocking Sarah Palin comes to mind—and the various shots he took at the Liberal Left. So, what's the lesson learned here kids? Don't piss off your boss' largest fan base. [Huffington Post]

Movies: The epic affair between Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal is over, before we could ever really give a fuck. Want a more interesting scenario? How about Kanye with Taylor and Jake and Amber Rose hooking up. Mind BLOWN. [US Magazine]

Comics: In the "what the fuck took them so long" news item of the week, our man Stan Lee finally has his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, making him the 2,428 celebrity to have one. Considering the hundreds of millions of dollars he has made that town, we're shocked he had to wait so long for one of those shitty stars. (We're just going to assume it had something to do with him approving Ben Affleck for Daredevil.) [MSNBC]

Environment: We're not sure if it's the changing environment, fireworks, power-lines, UFOs, or the beginning of The Rapture, but flocks of dead birds have been falling out the sky everywhere. First it was 2,000 in Arkansas then about 500 in Louisiana, and now, just last night, 100 popped up dead all the way in Sweden. We're not sure what's happening, but if they could do something about the fucking pigeons in NYC then, you know what, it's all good. [MSNBC]

Movies: Have you ever tried a 2010 year in movies retrospective...on weeeeeeeed rap? Check as rappers iLLspoKinN and Rabbi Darkside drop cinematic science on that ass. [NextMovie]
