porn star reads to kids

Why were these parents so angry? They don't like Dr. Seuss??? LOLz!

Last week, porn-star-turned-legit-actress Sasha Grey was invited to Emerson Elementary School in Compton to read to children.

Parents were OUTRAGED when they found out about this, so as a result the school's been trying to cover it up.

Johnny Depp Dr Seuss

When we found out Johnny Depp was producing the new Dr. Seuss biopic, we were so excited we started rhyming.

And now it sounds like an even greater adventure, a trippier one for sure, as Dr. Seuss will most likely be a mix of live action and animation!

Don't believe us? Just ask the man:

Lost Dr. Seuss Stories To Be Released

Filed under: Etc.

lost-dr-seuss-stories.jpg

Good news, Dr. Seuss fans!

Seven rarely-seen stories from the beloved author will be published in a new book that is to be released this fall.

Dr. Seuss' art director, Cathy Goldmith, found the stories on eBay, which were being sold by a dentist who just happened to be a huge collector of "Seussiana."

She met with Charles Cohen, along with Random House VP and publisher Kate Klimo, and discovered just how big of a fan he really was. She said:

"His house was literally bursting at the seams with Seussiana: plush, toys, beer trays, puzzles, and a wide range of ephemera. Not only that, Dr Cohen was a fount of Seuss information, history, and theories about Ted's artistic process. In short order, we had contracted Cohen to write what would become The Seuss, The Whole Seuss, and Nothing But the Seuss. Published in 2003, it was a nearly encyclopaedic look at Ted's career. But through it all, Charles always wanted to compile the stories he had found in various magazines."

The book, titled The Bippolo Seed, is described as "the literary equivalent of buried treasure," adding:

"These stories were published during what could arguably be called Dr Seuss's most fertile creative period, a time that would yield both Cat in the Hat and Grinch, a time when his theories about how to reach children through rhyme, rhythm, and a resonant combination of nonsense and sagacity, were coming into full bloom. The stories are as good as anything in the already-published canon and readers of all ages are in for a treat."

So cool! These stories are sure to be a treasure. Can't wait to read these hidden stories.

The Lorax Will Speak For The Trees… Next Year!

lorax gets movie release date

Dr. Seuss fans, rejoice!

Back in October, we were excited to report that Dr. Seuss' underrated masterpiece The Lorax is being adapted into a 3-D feature film by the team behind Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who.

Now, we've learned that the film will be released in theaters on March 2nd, 2012, and we can't wait!

For those of you whose history with Seuss ends at The Cat in the Hat, the original Lorax story/cautionary tale revolves around a hairy little creature who stands on his tree-stump podium and tries to convince people not to destroy the forest.

Here's how Universal has described the story in their adaptation of The Lorax:

"[It's about] a boy who searches for the one thing that will help him win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world."

As long as the important message about the environment from the original story/cautionary tale is still present in this movie, we'll be happy.

Plus, as we've mentioned before, the movie's got one hell of a vocal cast, including Zac Efron, Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, AND now Taylor Swift as well!

We're pumped!

Will U check out The Lorax next March when it's released?

What fun!

Taylor Swift is the lastest Hollywood heaveyweight to lend her voice to the Universal/Illumination's 3D CGI pic Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.

Swifty's been tapped to voice the character of Audrey, the dream girl of young Ted, who'll be voiced by Zac Efron. Rounding out the cast thus far is Rob Riggle, Betty White and Danny DeVito, who will voice the mighty Lorax!

Congrats, girl! We bet you'll have a great time with it!

Hey, any chance you'll punch out a song for the album as well? Huh? HUH?!

The Lorax Will Speak For The Trees…In Theaters! AND In 3-D!

Filed under: Film FlickersZac EfronBetty White

film version of the lorax coming soon to theaters in 3d

Dr. Seuss' classic story about The Lorax, a creature who speaks for the trees, is on its way to the big screen!

Sure, The Cat In The Hat is enjoyable, but REAL Dr. Seuss fans know that The Lorax is the good doctor's masterpiece.

The story revolves around a hairy little creature who stands on his tree-stump podium and tries to convince people not to destroy the forest.

The animation team putting this project together previously made Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who, and they've got quite a cast of vocal talent on board!

Here are the AMAZING actors who will be lending their voices to The Lorax:

-Danny DeVito as The Lorax

-Ed Helms as The Once-ler (a greedy creature who chops down trees to make his "thneeds," which are "a thing everyone needs")

-Rob Riggle as O'Hare (an industrialist who exploits the polluted world and sells cans of fresh air)

-Zac Efron as Ted (a boy who searches for the "Once-ler" to learn how the world became ugly)

-Betty White as Ted's Grandmother (a woman who lived in the world when it was beautiful)

Here's what Danny DeVito has to say about the Lorax's message:

"Look, I don't want to be gruff about it, but we've got to wake up and smell the oil burning. I'm hoping that the squeakiest wheel gets the least grease."

More from DeVito:

"I feel sometimes the only way to get things done is shake people up a little bit, and the Lorax is not a guy who pussyfoots around. He's not a guy who uses kid gloves."

We hope everyone will check out this family movie/cautionary tale when it is released!

It's a wonderful and important story, and we couldn't be happier to hear that it's getting such a high profile theatrical release!

Did U grow up on The Lorax? Will U go see it when it's released?
