Just to be clear:

WE NEVER GAVE INSIDE EDITION PERMISSION TO USE OUR VIDEO!!!

INSIDE EDITION IS UNLAWFULLY AND UNETHICALLY INFRINGING ON OUR COPYRIGHTS!

Inside Edition ran a story about a missing girl and her suspicious ex-fiance. That sounds like a news story, but Inside … Read the rest

THE TIME-TRAVELING MEMORIES OF BRIAN LEE (Ghost, Toad, Drunken Master):

It was the best of times, it was the…wait. No, it was pretty much an epic adventure the entire way through.
