Grammy-award winning singer surprises street performer - CNN Video
What are the chances? A street performer in Boston was singing a John Legend song when she spotted him in the crowd. CNN's Jeanne Moos reports.
Can’t wait!!! Loved the anime series and hope they add Ed on a episode Party trick for the ages. Sometimes animated productions just don't translate to live action Where's Ed? Faye was made tame so I have no desire to watch this. The actress that plays Faye went on this woke tirade that has only isolated herself from the anime community as a whole. So sad...
Oh god, they’re really just making shot-for-shot remakes of existing Bebop episodes, aren’t they?

‘Red Notice’: Dwayne Johnson Shows Off First Clip of “Netflix’s Biggest Movie Ever”The action-heist movie hits Netflix Nov. 12. Hopefully this movie comes to Blu-ray or 4K disc, as Netflix hardly release any of their movies on physical media and I would like to own this in my physical movie collection. Can’t wait for this but this clip was just bad. How do you make a fight scene with these 3 stars look boring and poorly shot? Looks like the budget was 89% in the salary of the stars, because it looks a bad movie. Hopefully I’m wrong, but for the clip 🙁
