“Anonymous” Threatens Iggy Azalea, Gets Twitter Account Suspended

Hip-Hop artists Iggy Azalea has been in a Twitter fight with Azealia Banks for a little while now. The hacker group Anonymous is now threatening to release still images from a rumored  Azalea sex tape if she doesn’t apologize to Banks and the protesters in New York City protesting the death of Eric Garner after his encounter with police there. The hacker group maintains that they will not release the tape on moral grounds, but will release images of her face to prove they have it and could release it if they wanted. The Twitter account that tweeted the threats to Azalea has been suspended and another account linked to the group tweeted that the group has better things to do.

A brawl broke out on the Giants sideline  late in the first half after Alec Ogletree took Beckham Jr. to the ground out of bounds.Two players from each team were ejected. Be sure to notice in that video linked around the 1:30 mark where the Fox sideline reporter somehow avoids getting crushed.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports also reported yesterday that the Rams are the front-runner to move to Los Angeles as early as the 2016 season.

E.J. Gaines of the Rams suffered a concussion and a busted lip after almost getting killed on this play.

Garth Brooks And Justin Timberlake Sing “Friends In Low Places”

It was only a few weeks ago that Justin Timberlake showed up at the first of the four shows Garth Brooks played here in St. Louis. On Friday night, Garth was in attendance at the Justin Timberlake show in Nashville and came on stage. The result was magical and if you follow RealLifeSTL on Facebook, you saw this on our page on Saturday morning. Again, we dig this bromance, like more than Adam Levine and Blake Shelton even.  


Pixels Coming July 2015

So in this film aliens attack New York City. It’s a theme that has been done many times over. This time, however, the aliens have taken on the form of arcade game characters such as Pac-Man. You see they’ve watched footage of humans playing video games and somehow see it as an “act of aggression”.  How in the world does this movie exist? Well, because the internet is awesome and Patrick Jean made a short film in 2010 that he uploaded to Vimeo and it spread like wildfire across the interwebs. Jesus Diaz over at SPLOID is quite upset  that this film, which will be released in July of next year is directed by Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
