Iranian Rockers Slain By Disgruntled Ex-Bandmate In Brooklyn

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNew YorkViolence

brooklyn musician slays former bandmates yellow dogs iran four shot three killed williamsburg

This is just so unfathomably tragic!

A musician shot four people at a house party last night in a trendy area of Brooklyn — fatally wounding three — before turning the gun on himself.

Two of the men he killed were brothers and members of The Yellow Dogs — an Iranian band that migrated to New York to pursue their rock and roll dreams. It's believed the gunman was a disgruntled ex-member of the same band.

Officials say it appears the killer was kicked out of the band over money matters, but an investigation into his motives is still underway.

He found the brothers in their East Williamsburg row house and reportedly used an "assault-style rifle" to commit the crimes. He shot and killed the brothers and also a third musician from an Iranian band called the Free Keys. Another artist was shot at the same location, but thankfully only wounded.

The gunman then ascended to the roof of their home and killed himself with the very same weapon.

Argo Fallout: Iran Is Exploring A Lawsuit!

Filed under: Ben AffleckFilm FlickersPolitikOscars

argo ben affleck iran lawsuit ridiculous movie film

Really?? Really, Iran??

Argo's just a movie!

Everyone knows that movies stretch and distort the truth — like, we all know that the Canadians' roles in the film were under-represented, even though they had a whole lot more to do with the whole real plan than what was said! We don't see them calling up their lawyers! LOLz!

Regardless of that, the events actually happened! Americans WERE captured in 1979, and there WAS a rescue mission!

Yet, French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in the country anyway, discussing with officials how they might go about filing the lawsuit. Of course, they'd probably never use her — she has a dark past for being the lawyer for infamous Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka Carlos the Jackal — and we're willing to bet they don't want to be seen alongside former clients like that.

But they ARE looking into legal action, and have even privately screened the movie for a group of Iranian cultural officials and movie critics!

We wonder what will come first, though: the lawsuit, or Iran's own film version of the events called The General Staff!

Also, do U think they'll cast Ben Affleck?

Ha!

Wow, Iran…..wow…..

PETA is beyond angry at Iran for launching a monkey in space in an attempt to conquer space.

Photos have surfaced showing a visibly terrified monkey strapped to a "pod" with duct tape and the sad thing…this ISN'T the first time Iran has tried to send a monkey in space.

Rihanna Escapes Chris Brown Dramz In Azerbaijan

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteLove LineChris Brown

The interwebs are buzzin' with news about Rihanna and Chris Brown's controversial decision to get back together.

Luckily for RiRi, she had a concert booked in a country far, far away so she gets to escape the madness for the next few days.

She arrived in Azerbaijan — a small country right above Iran — on Friday to prepare for a Saturday concert. She was spotted entering her 5-star hotel in an outfit that PETA probably wouldn't be too fond of.

While her trip should help keep her mind off of any criticism she's receiving for shacking up with Breezy again, it's creating more criticism from human rights organizations.

Fan Throws Live GRENADE Onto Field During Soccer Game!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSoccerScary!

Sometimes, sports fans can get a little crazy, throwing things onto the field during a game.

The worst we've heard of at an American sporting event would be batteries being thrown or octopi. (Google "legend of the octopus").

But in Iran, it's another story entirely!

A soccer player picks up what he thinks is a piece of garbage and tosses it off the field.

You'll never believe what happens next!

Check out the video (above) to see the explosive results!

Watch The First Trailer For Ben Affleck's Argo!

Filed under: Ben AffleckFilm Flickers

Ben Affleck has yet to disappoint us behind the camera and we don't think he's breaking that record with his latest film!

Check out the first trailer for Argo (above), in which the CIA enlists in the help of Hollywood to create a fake movie production as a means of extracting six American hostages caught up in the Iranian revolution.

Sounds a bit wacky, but it's based on a true story and it looks really inneresting!

With John Goodman, Alan Arkin and Bryan Cranston supporting the leading man, it's got a FANTASTIC cast too!

What's not to like?
