The Loop

 

Comedy giant Jerry Seinfeld has come out of his retirement from television.

No, it’s not via a Seinfeld reunion or new sitcom. It’s to star in a Microsoft ad with Bill Gates.

During NBC's NFL broadcast Thursday night of the Giants v. the Redskins game, the new ad debuted, kicking off Microsoft’s new $300 million marketing campaign.

Best part? Jerry only charged them about $10 million to do the spot. Isn’t that sweet of him?

Kid Rickrolls School

A kid with the handle Cactaw posted a video on Youtube showing how he Rickrolled his entire school!

His words: “I submitted Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ as the school bell tune, and it was accepted. I Rickrolled my school community 10 times in a 6-hour school day.”

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the Internet is such a delight! Back in the day, if you pulled a prank like this, only you and your schoolmates would know about it unless you got arrested or something. But now, in the age of the ‘Net, the whole world gets to watch your genius.

Thank you, Internet.

Thank you.

Freestyle 101 New Artist Month: Custom Made »




NEW ARTIST MONTH

September '08 is New Artist Month on Freestyle 101 and who better to kick it off than Los Angeles-based spitters Custom Made.

Founded in 2002 while still in high school, Custom Made started as a crew of MCs before settling on a three-piece lineup of rappers Element and Bluff, and DJ Scoobs, who can be heard on their highly-anticipated sophomore release, Original Dynasty. After a steady stream of underground mixtapes, including the awesome Street Cinema series, Custom Made signed with ultra-hip indie Babygrande in 2006, who issued Sidewalk Mindtalk: The Best of the Custom Made Mixtapes that same year. The group’s official Babygrande debut, Original Dynasty, hit the streets earlier this summer, following the digi-only EP Truth Be Told.

Freestyle 101 was stoked to get this trio of fire breathing MCs in the booth at the Engine Room in Hollywood over a sick R.N.S. beat, and chatted with them in the parking lot about the current state of the L.A. underground.

In an interview with Fresh Ink’s Blair Butler, comic book author Mark Millar said he’d like to make a trilogy of films for a re-booted Superman series, and it might happen. Millar's vision for a new Superman:

"I've had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. One to be released each year." Millar said.

Millar says there's nothing firm yet,  but he hopes to get word over the next few weeks. If everything goes perfectly, they'll be shooting next summer. Check it out below:
