Briefs: RIP Blockbuster, Thomas Roberts Is In Russia, and Darren Criss Does An Excellent Mr. Burns

Birthday shoutouts go to Michael Cerveris (above) who is 53, Emma Stone is 25, Rebecca Romjin is 41, and Ethan Hawke is 43.

Surprising no one, FX has renewed American Horror Story for Season Four. So far Jessica Lange is the only returning cast member, but Frankenhinie better be included.

It truly is the end of an era. Blockbuster is closing all their remaining stores by January. I worked at a Blockbuster in the late 90’s (didn’t we all?), and I think I’ll wear khakis and a hideous blue shirt tonight for old time’s sake.

I know you may be tired of flash mob marriage proposals, but his one is truly MUST SEE. Why? It’s set to Nena’s “99 Luftballoons,” which automatically makes it awesome.

TV Line has two exclusive clips of Darren Criss and Chris Colfer in the Fox Lounge. We learn if Chris prefers puppies or kittens, what his least favorite word is, and witness Darren’s excellent Mr. Burns impression.

Roberts In Russia – Day One.

It’s been a long time coming, but Stephen Colbert finally apologizes to the gays. This is hilarious.

Stephen Amell is such a hot and adorable sweetheart, and here he manages to maintain his dignity under the crass questions of Chelsea Handler

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Rob Halford. In 1985, Rob was part of the too-awesome-for-words charity single “We’re Stars” by Hear N Aid, which was ten times better than “We Are The World.” We’re magic in the night!

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

And now … THE TOP TEN LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! At #4 is “Dark Horse” by Amanda Marshall. This is the third single from Amanda’s stellar debut album on this list (after “Birmingham” and “Beautiful Goodbye”), and it’s my favorite of her pop gems. It was a top five hit in Canada, but didn’t chart on the Hot 100 or anywhere else, and it’s just a gorgeous ode to love and perseverance. TOMORROW’S CLUE – Polly Jean swims with the fishes.

Congrats to Jonathan , who was the first to guess that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Babylon 5.

Here’s today’s Pixuzzle™ © ®. Here are characters from a famous TV show. Can you name it?
