GI Joe, the world’s first action figure, turns 50
mysanantonio.com / Thu, 6 Feb 2014 12:20:00 UT
The birthday of what's called the world's first action figure is being celebrated this month by collectors and the toy maker that introduced it just before the nation plunged into the quagmire that would become the Vietnam War — a storm it seems to have weathered pretty well. Since Hasbro brought it to the world's attention at the annual toy fair in New York City in early 1964, G.I. Joe has undergone many changes, some the result of shifts in public sentiment for military-themed toys, others dictated by the marketplace. Levine and his team came up with an 11½-inch articulated figure with 21 moving parts, and since the company's employees included many military veterans, it was decided to outfit the toy in the uniforms of the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, with such accessories as guns, helmets and vehicles. Into the '70s, G.I. Joes featured "lifelike hair" and "kung-fu grip" and were outfitted with scuba gear to save the oceans and explorer's clothing for discovering mummies. Over the decades, G.I. Joe has spawned comic books, cartoons, two movies starring Channing Tatum, and a G.I. Joe Collector's Club and its annual convention — GIJoeCon — held in Dallas in April.

Allen defends self against Farrow’s abuse claims
mysanantonio.com / Sat, 8 Feb 2014 07:47:50 UT
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a nearly 2,000-word open letter punctuated with rhetorical questions and decades-old anecdotes, notoriously media-shy Woody Allen again defended himself against renewed claims that he molested adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow 21 years ago. Allen's response was published online Friday night by The New York Times, nearly a week after the same publication released an open letter from Dylan Farrow in which she claimed that in 1992 at the family's Connecticut home, Allen led her to a "dim, closet-like attic" and "then he sexually assaulted me." A team of child abuse specialists from the Yale-New Haven Hospital, brought in to the case by prosecutors and police, concluded that Dylan Farrow had not been molested. The 78-year-old director of such films as Annie Hall, ''Bullets Over Broadway and Midnight in Paris spent the majority of his letter lashing out against ex-partner Mia Farrow, calling her vindictive, spiteful and malevolent. There is even a lame attempt to do professional damage by trying to involve movie stars, which smells a lot more like Mia than Dylan. In a statement made to The Hollywood Reporter late Friday, Dylan Farrow called Allen's op-ed "the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years." Allen received a lifetime achievement award at last month's Golden Globes ceremony, and he's up for the best original screenplay trophy at next month's Academy Awards for "Blue Jasmine," which also received acting nominations for Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins.

One Direction cleans up at Kids’ Choice Awards

Robert Downey Jr. turned inspirational speaker at the Kids' Choice Awards, Pharrell set another fashion trend, David Blaine lost his head during a slime-induced illusion, One Direction and Jennifer Lawrence cleaned up, and the green goo bath finally caught up with Mark Wahlberg — thanks to some unlikely slimers. [...] life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways for many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back. More than a dozen former and current teen stars joined on stage to salute Schneider, the creator of several of the network's most popular shows, including iCarly, ''Kenan & Kel and Sam & Cat, a current Nickelodeon hit that won favorite TV show and favorite TV actress for star Ariana Grande. The awards show isn't much more than an excuse to slime some of today's top stars, and first-time host Wahlberg executed several slimings as he successfully escaped the green goo for the show's first 80 minutes.
