CHEAP COSTUME IDEAS

CHEAP COSTUME IDEAS
Cover yourself with a clear plastic garbage bag, fill it with different colored balloons, write 'M' on the balloons and go as a bag of M&M's.Wrap yourself in tin foil and go as leftovers!Cover your and your friends in sheets. One person wears horns, and goes as bull sheet. The other has feathers, chicken sheet. And finally wear a sign that says 'happens.' Sheet happens.Wear a green shirt and attach Christmas ornaments, go as a Christmas tree.Painted your head red and go as a candy apple.Dye Your hair blue and say you're a Ban Roll-On.Put on dark glasses and write "venetian" across your chest and go as a venetian blind.

The EZ Foil company says it's easy-to-make Halloween costumes. The company recommends using their pans to make costumes like turtle and cel phones and robots. This led to other creative and cost-effective costumes. People love to brag about being cheap.

Improvement project on SR 86 near Sells nearing completion

The Arizona Department of Transportation is nearing completion of a project to improve a segment of State Route 86 east of Sells.
Paving work on SR 86 is complete and crews are now working to complete other tasks related to the project, including seeding the highway shoulders, adding rumble strips and striping the newly repaved segment.

TACO OR BURRITO?

TACO OR BURRITO? Taco or burrito? Which Mexican food you like the best can be a kind of personality test that might even help you find your perfect romantic match, according to a new Mexican food "Q-dentity" study conducted by Dr. Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, on behalf of Qdoba Mexican Grill. According to Hirsch, the preferences we have for popular Mexican foods, such as tacos, burritos and quesadillas, indicate very specific and unique personality traits. Taco
People who prefer tacos are conscientious, perfectionists and ideal workers. On the job they take over, accomplishing monumental tasks. They are the master of their domain and can become so engrossed in work that they are often forced to sacrifice time with family and friends. Some examples of this personality include: John Turturro as Sid Lidz in "Unstrung Heroes," America Ferrera as Betty Suarez in "Ugly Betty," Larry Linville as Major…

ON THIS DAY

ON THIS DAY On this date in 1864, Montana came up with a name for its capitol, Helena. One of the founding fathers wanted to name it for a woman he met, but he couldn't remember her last name. It was "Helen, uh... Helen, uh..." In 1925, the very first crude TV images were created. Technical crude, not "South Park" crude. On this date in 1938, Orson Welles did his famous broadcast of "War of the Worlds," which caused a nation-wide panic. It was just a radio play, but people who tuned in late thought we really been invaded by Martians.Yes, there was a time where our country was one big Honey-Boo-Boo family.He made it sound as though the U.S. was being taken over by aliens... which is what those opposed to immigration reform are claiming today.

Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner's lawsuit over a toy hamster

Implausible on its face. That's the four-word summary of Hasbro's response to Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner's lawsuit over a toy hamster. In September, Faulkner sued Hasbro, contending that a "Harris Faulkner" hamster in the toy company's "Littlest Pet Shop" product line violated her likeness rights, "caused substantial commercial and emotional damage" and falsely implied her "association with, approval, and endorsement" of the toy rodent. With the possibility of turning into the biggest hamster scandal since Watergate, Hasbro isn't offering much cheese. In a partial motion to dismiss filed in New Jersey federal court on Monday, the defendant showed the judge side-by-side photos of the fictional hamster toy and real-life adult woman and asked the judge to see that they share nothing in common. According to the motion, "Because name-sameness is not enough to state a claim for a violation of one's right of publicity …

Supergirl's Ratings Are In

Supergirl's Ratings Are In: Was She Able to Save the Fall TV Season? It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a...fall TV ratings savior! Supergirl made her debut on CBS Monday night, and overnight ratings reveal that the high-flying drama flew in like a speeding bullet with 13 million total viewers and a 3.2 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic. So, what does that mean? Well, it makes the superhero series fall's No. 1 debut! How's that for some (super)girl power?! We placed Supergirl at No. 6 in our ranking of the new fall shows, and 80% of E! News readers voted that they "loved it" in our post-premiere poll. Viewers weren't the only ones smitten with the new superhero on the block. As the girl beneath the cape, Melissa Benoist, told E! News herself, the moment she tried on the iconic costume, it gave her all the feels. "That was a big -- that was a really, really crazy feeling. It felt like anything else, it felt like just putting on tight…

Kristen Wiig's New Movie Crying in a Sweater Debuts

Kristen Wiig's New Movie Crying in a Sweater Debuts on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Kristen Wiig might be best known for her comedic work in Bridesmaids and on Saturday Night Live, but she does have a dramatic side. The Skeleton Twins and her new project, Nasty Baby, showcase Wiig's darker side, and now she's working on something a little bit heavier that Jimmy Kimmel said is already starting to receive Oscar buzz. Debuting the trailer for her "new" movie, Crying in a Sweater, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, Wiig showed that she could really get the tears flowing. Wiigs cries her way through the entire trailer, in which she wears sweaters of all varieties. Everything from your ugly Christmas sweater to a knit your grandmother made you makes an appearance, all while Wiig bawls her eyes out. Her performance is said to be "the Wiigaissannce," at least according to Dr. Mehmet Oz. Her powerhouse performance features very little dialogue other than an over-the-top outbur…

Mad Men's Don Draper is no longer making Old Fashions

Mad Men's Don Draper is no longer making Old Fashions at work since the AMC drama signed off in May, but his office will live on. Series creator Matthew Weiner has donated the entire workspace to the future Museum of Television of Los Angeles, which also will house artifacts from such shows as The Sopranos, Lost and Dexter. Says museum director James Comisar, who is looking for a permanent location: "We believe Mad Men objects will resonate with video watchers for decades going forward. Matthew Weiner made sure every piece of wardrobe and set decoration was historically perfect, and from the first email he articulated a great passion for preservation." Comisar's collection also includes the bar from Cheers. "Next up for us is carefully examining Don Draper's office walls and coming up with a conservation plan, and we've acquired a vintage collection of often-filled barware from the series to exhibit in the interim," he adds.

Supergirl Is Here to Save the Day!

Supergirl Is Here to Save the Day! Did She Save Yours? It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a terrible opening line for an article about CBS' newest series, Supergirl! TV has been pretty lacking in the female superhero department for quite a while now, but as of Monday night, Supergirl has arrived to save the world and change the game. Gone are the days of broody dudes agonizing over their identity or the fact that they actually punched a hole in their locker. Supergirl's Kara starts the series already knowing exactly who she is. In Monday night's first episode, it was all about deciding that it was finally time for Kara to use her super powers instead of hiding them away. Over the course of one first episode, Kara decided to start using her powers, told her friend about it, and suited up before learning about her adopted sister's secret military job and being forced to fight some superpowered criminals. So that was a lot, but it was also a lot of fun. Remem…

Former boxer Mike Tyson endorsed Donald Trump

Didn't see that one coming. Former boxer Mike Tyson endorsed Donald Trump as the next president of the United States during a sit down with the Huffington Post. "He should be president of the United States," Tyson said. "Let's try something new. Let's run America like a business, where no colors matter. Whoever can do the job, gets the job." Tyson also seemed to be a critic of democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. When asked between the two, who he would support, the 49-year-old quickly shooed away either option, reiterating his endorsement for Trump. "I like Trump," he answered. While he is arguably one of the most controversial candidates on the 2016 campaign trail, Tyson said he doesn't believe that Trump feels negatively about Latinos-an issue that continuously lands the presidential hopeful in hot water and headlines. Tyson admitted the comments were "crude," but clarified that he doesn't think Trump…

Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton

They may play rivals on-screen, but off-screen it's a different story. Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton looked friendly as ever at the premiere of their new film Our Brand Is Crisis at the TCL Theatre in Hollywood on Monday night. While on the red carpet, Bullock, 51, joked to PEOPLE about what it was like to work with her longtime pal Thornton, 60. "The funny thing about Billy Bob, everyone thinks he wants to kill you. Like, he looks at you as if he wants to take a, what is it, a shank? What is that knife they make in prison?" she joked. The pair both struck fame in the late '80s and became friends in the business. According to Bullock, Thornton has been exactly the same as when she first encountered him. "He's the nicest human being, the nicest human being ever. So kind. It surprises me every time, I don't know why. He's got the tattoos and the little shirt and the boots. You're assuming a knife somewhere in the back pocket. But there'…

Legend Harry Belafonte, 88, participated in a Q&A on "music and social injustice

Legend Harry Belafonte, 88, participated in a Q&A on "music and social injustice" with Usher on Friday, despite having suffered a seizure a night earlier. He also seemingly settled his beef with Jay Z at the event. "He was moving slowly," said a spy at the 92nd Street Y of Belafonte, who suffered the seizure Thursday before being honored in Brooklyn. "But he definitely seemed 100 percent mentally." Spies said Jay Z secretly turned up and "was backstage and spoke with Belafonte and Usher for a long time .?.?. Then he sat in the audience for the event." Belafonte and Jay Z had a beef beginning in 2012 when the older entertainer said, "I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay Z and Beyonce, for example." Jay Z fired back in 2013, "This is going to sound arrogant, but my…

Richard Gere is not active on social media

Richard Gere is not active on social media, but on Monday, Oct. 26, the actor borrowed Time Out of Mind costar Jena Malone's Facebook account to communicate with the world. Gere shared a post via the actress' page to address a photo of himself portraying a homeless man from the film that went viral. The photo was originally posted by a fan pretending to be Gere on Facebook earlier this month who claimed that after going undercover, Gere handed out money to the homeless. "Hi, Richard Gere here," the 66-year-old actor wrote on his costar's page. "I was completely surprised to find that last week someone posted a photo of me on a Facebook fan page as a homeless man on the streets of New York that drew 1.6 million likes and over a half-a-million shares. While the story that accompanied the photograph was somewhat fictional (especially the $100 hand-outs), it seemed to have touched something important in people," he continued. "I'd like to find out …

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits after more than two years of marriage. "It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce," the couple said in a joint statement to PEOPLE. "We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children's privacy as we go through this difficult period." A source tells PEOPLE that the relationship had "run its course," adding: "They are keeping it amicable now. She is okay." Berry and Martinez met in 2010 on the set of Dark Tide. Three years later, the pregnant bride and her groom tied the knot on July 13, 2013, at the rustic Chateau des Conde in his native France. "She has called him 'The One,'" Sophie Dulac, the president of the Champs-Elysees Film Festival, said at the time. "She's s…

WEIRD WAYS PEOPLE TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT

WEIRD WAYS PEOPLE TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT The worst gimmicks, procedures, and diet products on the market. The Feeding Tube Diet
Feeding tubes -- once reserved for the sick or elderly -- are now a hot new dieting tool for brides-to-be. Tubes are placed in the nose, ported to the stomach, then hooked up to a small pump that provides a continuous drip of protein-fat liquid. At only 800 calories a day, with no solid food, weight loss is inevitable. The surprising part -- dieters are living to tell about it. Body Wraps
New mom and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak tried this wacky treatment in front of the cameras. First she was wrapped head to toe in elastic bandages. Once mummified, Zolciak had to stay in motion for 45 to 60 minutes to keep her blood circulating. Unwrap and poof -- she lost, or squeezed, inches off her body. Details on how the process helps you shed pounds are a bit hazy, but there are certainly more effective uses for elastic bands. Ear Stapling
This process works exa…
