Chet Hanks gives update on parents Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson. Also says to STOP hoarding.



Chet says both his parents have been checked out of an Australian hospital after being quarantined for five days.

“They’re out of the hospital,” Chet said. “They’re still self-quarantined, obviously, but they’re feeling a lot better. So that’s a relief. I just want to say to anyone else out there who has loved ones or if you yourself are afflicted with the virus, my prayers go out to you because a lot of people are suffering other than my parents right now.”

After offering well wishes to the ones affected by the virus, Chet took this time to set all the people hoarding shit straight, "I think if you went to the grocery store and hoarded all the toilet paper, you're the problem. You know what I mean? You should just think more of others for once... I know this is crazy, but I'm just wishing everyone the best and we're going to get through this."

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


The Red Lotus

The first time Alexis saw Austin, it was a Saturday night. Not in a bar, but in the emergency room where Alexis sutured a bullet wound in Austin's arm. Six months later, on the brink of falling in love, they travel to Vietnam on a bike tour so that Austin can show her his passion for cycling and he can pay his respects to the place where his father and uncle fought in the war. But as Alexis sips white wine and waits at the hotel for him to return from his solo ride, two men emerge from the tall grass and Austin vanishes into thin air. The only clue he leaves behind is a bright yellow energy gel dropped on the road. As Alexis grapples with this bewildering loss, and deals with the FBI, Austin's prickly family, and her colleagues at the hospital, Alexis uncovers a series of strange lies that force her to wonder: Where did Austin go? Why did he really bring her to Vietnam? And how much danger has he left her in? Set amidst the adrenaline-fueled world of the emergency room, The Red Lotus is a global thriller about those who dedicate their lives to saving people, and those who peddle death to the highest bidder.

R.I.P. Chris Reed, Japanese ice dancer and Olympian (1989-2020)



It has been recently reported, first by his family and then by various media outlets, that longtime and recently retired Japanese ice dancer Chris Reed died at age 30 of a sudden heart attack.

The middle child of three ice dancing siblings born and raised in the United States, but with Japanese citizenship as well via their mother Noriko, Chris formed a partnership with his older sister Cathy, initially for the United States. But after winning the US national novice title in 2006, Cathy & Chris decided to switch to compete for Japan, a country where ice dance is a marginal figure skating discipline and they immediately became national senior silver medalists on arrival, before winning seven national titles and representing Japan at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, placing seventeenth and twenty-first, respectively. Cathy & Chris never found much success in the way of medals internationally, but were well-liked by their peers and fans. Cathy opted for retirement after the 2014/15 season and began working as a coach and choreographer in Japan.

Chris' career wasn't done just yet, however, and he would find his greatest successes with his new partner Kana Muramoto over their three seasons together. Muramoto/Reed won several international medals on the ISU Challenger circuit and, in 2018, became the first ever Japanese dance team to medal at an ISU championship when they won the bronze at the Four Continents Championships in Taipei. They were fifteenth at the 2018 Winter Olympics and eleventh at the 2018 World Championships, both career-bests for Chris, before Kana decided to end the partnership.

In his most recent blog post, Chris indicated that he was planning to return to Japan to join Cathy in founding the new Kinoshita Ice Dance School, to, in his words, "take Japanese ice dance to a new age". He is survived by his parents, Noriko and Robert, sisters Cathy and Allison, and longtime girlfriend Kerstin Frank.

What year is it? Why is Alien Ant Farm trending on Twitter in 2020?



Is it because the 2000s are coming back with a vengeance? Nope! In short, it's because their "Smooth Criminal" video features a boy dancing on a sidewalk, wearing a surgical mask. (It's also got just about every early 2000s punk house party trope, too.)



The band appreciates going viral (ha) and decided to tell everyone that they have an album in the works as well as a beer coming soon.
