McDonald’s Big Mac Is Getting Even Bigger. And Smaller.

170118102908-mcdonalds-grand-mac-780x439

For those who think the Big Mac is a bit too big, McDonald’s is coming out with the Mac Jr. For those who think the Big Mac isn’t quite big enough, McDonald’s is unveiling the Grand Mac.

McDonald’s said it’s going company-wide with the burgers after successful test markets earlier this year in Ohio and Dallas/Fort Worth.

The Big Mac is distinguished by the fact that it has two burger patties instead of one, and it also has the famous “special sauce.” The Grand Mac adds more beef to the two patties, totaling one-third of a pound of beef. The Mac Jr. has just one larger patty, loses the middle bun, but keeps the special sauce.

The Big Mac was invented in 1967 by Michael “Jim” Delligatti at his franchise in Uniontown, Pa. Delligatti, who eventually owned 48 franchises, died at age 98 in November, just weeks after McDonald’s first announced plans for the Grand Mac and Mac Jr.

This is the latest change from Steve Easterbrook, who became CEO in 2015. Easterbrook has experimented with fast food innovations, including self-order kiosks, mobile pay options, updated interior design and table service. He also pioneered the all-day breakfast menu, which has helped to drive revenue and profits.

Aimee Mann’s New Album Mental Illness Out March 31, 2017

91al53uf3cl-_sl1500_

Aimee Mann’s new album, Mental Illness, is out on March 31st. You can listen to the full version of “Goose Snow Cone” below and pre-order the album at www.aimeemann.com. Upcoming tour dates are HERE.

Mann discussed the album with Rolling Stone:

Aimee Mann says her upcoming LP, Mental Illness, is the “saddest, slowest, most acoustic, if-they’re-all-waltzes-so-be-it-record” she could possibly write. The singer-songwriter’s ninth studio album, her first since 2012’s Charmer, is out March 31st via SuperEgo Records.

‘It’s like having a candy coating, and then the inside is totally different’

Mann showcases that sad, folky approach on lead single “Goose Snow Cone,” which is available to stream on her website. “Even birds of a feather find it hard to fly,” she croons over fingerpicked acoustic guitars and strings.

Mann says she wrote the material assuming the general public views her work as “really depressing.” “I don’t know – people may have a different viewpoint – but that’s my own interpretation of the cliché about me,” she said. “I mean, calling it Mental Illness makes me laugh, because it is true, but it’s so blunt that it’s funny.”

The 11-track album, which was inspired by her favorite Sixties and Seventies folk-rock LPs, features a core studio crew of Jonathan Coulton (acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Jay Bellerose (drums), Jamie Edwards (piano), co-writer John Roderick and longtime producer Paul Bryan (string arrangements). Ted Leo, who recently collaborated with Mann in their joint side-project, the Both, adds background vocals.

Track Listing

1. Goose Snow Cone
2. Stuck In The Past
3. You Never Loved Me
4. Rollercoasters
5. Lies Of Summer
6. Patient Zero
7. Good For Me
8. Knock It Off
9. Philly Sinks
10. Simple Fix
11. Poor Judge

Jim Gaffigan’s One-Hour Standup Special Cinco Now Streaming On Netflix

15995203_10154951915979661_2919288545408797158_o

Cinco will join the comedian’s four previous comedy specials, (Obsessed, Mr. Universe, King Baby, and Beyond The Pale) presently available on the streaming service. In an unprecedented move, Netflix exclusively has the rights to the entire Gaffigan comedy special library worldwide.

Cinco captures Gaffigan’s recent Fully Dressed Tour, which included a sold-out performance at The Madison Square Garden Arena in New York, and smashed a Salt Lake City record with 29,000 tickets sold. Dubbed the “King of Clean Comedy” by The Wall Street Journal, Gaffigan opened for Pope Francis on his first visit to the United States. As of June 2016, Gaffigan was the most popular comic on all of Pandora with over 647 million spins.

The multi-Grammy nominated comedian and New York Times best selling author (“Dad is Fat” and “Food: A Love Story”) recently pulled the plug on his critically acclaimed television show, “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” so he and his writing/producing partner and wife, Jeannie Gaffigan, could spend more time with their five young children. Mrs. Gaffigan co-wrote and directed Cinco.

Gaffigan will appear in season 3 of FX’s “Fargo” with Ewan McGregor. Additionally the comedian/actor is scheduled to appear in six motion pictures in 2017 including Chappaquidick (Jason Clarke, Kate Mara), The Bleeder (Liev Schrieber, Naomi Watts) Guardian Brothers (Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman).

Bottleneck Gallery To Release Jock’s Detective Comics #800 Cover & Glen Brogan’s Catwoman Prints On January 17, 2017

This Tuesday, January 17, 2017 Bottleneck Gallery will go back to the Batcave and continue to explore the Batman Universe with two amazing prints from veteran Batman artist, Jock, and Glen Brogan.

Jock’s work on Batman comics throughout the years has been so visually striking, unique, and kinetic, that the gallery just had to release this piece, originally the cover for the milestone DC Comic Detective Comics #800, in a beautiful, officially licensed, professional giclée format.

And to pair with Jock’s Batman, Bottleneck is offering a Glen Brogan Catwoman piece that they think is just purr-fect. Glen’s take on Batman’s feral frenemy is absolutely alluring, and includes some fun nods to the larger Batman Universe.

Both the Bat and the Cat will be available for purchase Tuesday (1/17) at 12PM ET!

Disney Channel Releases New Descendants 2 Teaser Trailer

descendants2poster

Disney Channel has debuted the new Descendants 2 teaser trailer.

The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit Descendants as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon. When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.

Emmy Award-winning director Kenny Ortega (Descendants, “High School Musical” movies, 2016’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”) returns as director, executive producer and choreographer of Descendants 2.

Dove Cameron (“Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (“Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” “Jessie”), Booboo Stewart (X-Men Days of Future Past), Sofia Carson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) and Mitchell Hope are reprising their starring roles as Mal, Carlos, Jay, Evie and King Ben, respectively. China Anne McClain (“A.N.T. Farm”) will join the cast as Uma, the daughter of Ursula from The Little Mermaid. Casting will be announced soon for additional new characters, including the progeny of villains Captain Hook and Gaston.

Lauded writers Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon (“The Starter Wife,” “Runaway Bride”), who won a 2016 Writers Guild Award for Descendants, wrote Descendants 2 and will also executive-produce with Wendy Japhet (Descendants, An Education, The Italian Job). “Descendants” costume designer Kara Saun (“Project Runway”) and production designer Mark Hofeling (“Teen Beach Movie,” “High School Musical”) are also signed on for the sequel. Tony Testa (“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “This Is It”) will join the creative team as choreographer with Ortega, and Shawn Williamson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) will join as producer.

Descendants 2 will premiere this summer.
