‘DWTS’ perfect scores impress fans, tightens the competition

On Monday night, the perfect scores on “Dancing With the Stars” had fans impressed and surprised. This season they raised the bar quickly with a tight competition. On Showstoppers Week three of the couples got perfect scores when dancing to songs inspired by Broadway hits.

‘You’ve Got Mail’ guy didn’t make millions on his AOL voice?

Saw this amazing video about AOL’s “You’ve Got Mail” guy and had to share. Way before email popped up on our phones, there was one voice that gave notice that we had mail on our computers. That voice belongs to Elwood Edwards and he was the sound bites we heard getting mail and using AOL. He didn’t make millions with the cool recording (like stars today would) and he’s just a normal guy. Instead, he has instant notoriety with his passengers as he is an Uber driver. However, I predict he probably will be famous again real soon. Someone in Hollywood will have him booked on a talk show within a week (he’s so cool it’s bound to happen.)
