Dave Barry scrambles for daughter’s virtual return to college

My wife Michelle and I are hustling with a shopping cart through the endless aisles of a Walmart store. It is a standard Walmart, meaning it is the same size, in square feet, as Wyoming, but it contains more things.

This is our second Walmart in two days. Or maybe it’s the same one we were in yesterday. Maybe there is only one Walmart in the entire nation, surrounded by parking lots in different states. There is no way to tell.

Walmart has everything you could possibly need, except for the one thing you are looking for, which is often impossible to find because of all the other things. At the moment Michelle and I are looking for an office chair for our daughter, Sophie, who needs it for college. We got her a desk the day before, in the other Walmart (unless it was in fact the same Walmart).

Kanye West visited by Dave Chapelle amid concerning tweets

Kanye West had a visitor to his Wyoming ranch amid his headline-making tweets about his family — but it wasn’t wife Kim Kardashian. The rapper and 2020 presidential candidate shared a video on Tuesday with “true friend,” Dave Chapelle. West thanked the comedian on Twitter for “hopping on a jet to come see me doing well.” 

In the clip, West appeared upbeat with a group of friends. At one point, he asked Chapelle to tell a joke: “Alright Dave, can you please make us smile? The world needs some — we need some joy, we need a smile.”

“The brotherhood is real,” Chapelle replied. “Love is real.”

West asked Chapelle again to tell an uplifting joke, to which the comedian quipped, “Now you know I don’t write them.” That made the Yeezy designer laugh and he and Chapelle exchanged hugs.

“I love you,” West told the comedian. “Thanks for coming

Dave Franco Moves From On Camera to Director’s Chair With IFC Films’ Thriller ‘The Rental’

Click here to read the full article.

Dave Franco has long struggled against being labeled the “kid brother” type, from the time he was an unknown growing up in Palo Alto, Calif. 

“My first job was at a mom-and-pop video store when I was 14, and I’ve always looked young for my age,” says Franco. “People would come in wondering why this 9-year-old-looking boy was renting them ‘Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Basic Instinct.’”

Deceptive looks aside, he still was not of legal age to work. “They paid me by allowing me to take home as many movies as I wanted. That became my film school,” he says.

That early training, along with some 13 years of professional acting, finally brings Franco to his lifelong dream of the director’s chair for “The Rental,” an IFC Films title that, when it hits on July 24, will represent one
