Wait....I thought he gave permission for that?

If he complained the Coolio should be rename UnCoolio.

And then be charged with some felony because the name 'Coolio and/or/ UnCoolio' are so uncool that they should be a crime.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Although Yankovic traditionally secures permission from the artists he parodies (even though this is not legally required, as parodies are covered under fair use guidelines), and was told by his record label that Coolio had given permission, Coolio later claimed that he had not given such permission (and in fact publicly expressed disgust saying that Yankovic's parody "desecrated the song"). This created a minor controversy, as speculation surfaced that Coolio had actually given permission but later claimed he had not in the fear that allowing the parody would not be seen as "cool", or that Yankovic's record label had lied to Yankovic in the hopes that the song would become popular.[citation needed]

Yankovic later stated on VH1's Behind the Music that he had written a sincere letter of apology to Coolio, which was never returned, and that Coolio never complained when he received his royalty check from proceeds of the song. A series of photos taken at the XM Satellite Radio booth at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show suggests that Yankovic and Coolio had made amends.[1]

On June 27, 2013 during an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit, Yankovic was asked "Is Coolio still upset about Amish Paradise?", to which Yankovic replied "Coolio's cool with me now. We ran into each other a few years ago and it's all water under the proverbial bridge."[2] Coolio stated in a 2014 interview that the decision to refuse the parody at the time was "stupid" and wished that someone on his management had stopped him, and considers the final parody to be "funny".

First trailer for It: Chapter 2 dropped this morning. I enjoyed part 1 and thought it was a massive improvement over the 1994 TV movie. I thought the kid actors were all quite good as well and had great chemistry.

I like the cast for this one. Chastain, McAvoy, and Bill Hader? Sign me up!

I watched it without sound and was scared. But I was traumatized by the 1994 TV movie as a child, so maybe it is still residual terror.

I've never found the It book/movies all that scary. Having said that, the trailer is definitely creepy.

I avoided watching It, but after watching the trailer for It 2, I'm drawn in.

That was such a good scene in the book. Cool that they made almost a whole trailer out of it. I would go just to see Bill Hader as Ritchie – the rest is just icing.

I don't think IT was ever really meant to be that scary, it's about what children are afraid of, which isn't really going to resonate with adults. I think what makes IT a classic is that it's a great story filled with great characters.


The Shining was the scariest book I'll ever read. I swore off horror books after that. I don't need to spend another 3 months of my life terrified of going to the bathroom at night.

God, that tub scene in the book is truly terrifying. I'd never been scared by a book before.

Iíve read a LOT of horror novels and The Shining is one of the few thatís really gotten to me. The book and the film are pretty different, both very good, but with the book you really feel the descent into madness.
