Some Facebook users Friday morning were rudely surprised to find that their electronic connection to the world was broken.
Some who tried to log on were faced with a message from Facebook that said, “Sorry, something went wrong.”
That’s it. No further explanation. Just “something went wrong.” And some people went a little gaga. When one social media outlet isn’t there, you need to go to another to complain about it. Which is making #facebookdown the top trending item in the Twitterverse right now.
Still no word from Facebook on what happened, or how many people were affected, or how long the disruption lasted. It does seem that things are back to normal, so everyone can get back to the business of sharing Grumpy Cat memes and commenting on the latest escapades of The Real Housewives of Wherever.
It would be interesting to sit in on one of the idea sessions for Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, just to see how the concept of Face Balls ges birthed.
Here's the deal: Jimmy's guest throws a giant air-filled ball at Jimmy's face. The event is captured on slow-mo camera for instant replay. Then Jimmy throws a giant air-filled ball at his guest's face. And they repeat the process with bigger balls.
Actually pretty funny, and who better to kick off your Face Ball segment than Julia Roberts.
She shows off her remarkable sense of humor - check out her comments as she catches a couple of balls in the face.
The original Night at the Museum was something of a hit – with Ben Stiller as the night security guard at a museum where things came to life after closing time.
Night at the Museum 2? Well, I must admit, I missed that one. Didn’t even know it had been made.
And yet, the franchise has already pulled in $1 billion worldwide.
So here we are, just months away from the release of the third installment – Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb – and the first official trailer has dropped, showing the reunion of Ben and Robin Williams, among others.
Check it out. I’ve got to admit, it got a couple of genuine chuckles out of this tough audience.
On Wednesday, singer David Cassidy – the pop singer from the 70s who starred in The Partridge Family – had a court hearing scheduled to answer to a charge of driving while intoxicated in the town of Schodack, NY last summer.
Because he lives in Florida, the court agreed to allow Cassidy’s lawyer to appear in court to accept a plea deal on his behalf.
Everything was set until someone pointed out to the court a tweet by the New York Racing Association on that very same day, saying that David was at Saratoga Race Course – about 40 miles from the courtroom – playing bocce with a few other guys.
A new court date has been scheduled. And you can bet that David won’t be playing bocce that day.
David Cassidy, Dominick Schettino, Anthony Bonomo, and @garycontessa playing bocce by the #Saratoga Pavilion. Gary Sciacca on his way.
