Hanson family band is naming their first beer ‘Mmmhops’

When Hanson released its Middle of Nowhere album in 1996, the family band became virtually inescapable. First single “MMMBop” was everywhere, while follow-up singles “Where’s The Love,” “Weird,” “I Will Come to You,” and “Thinking of You” also helped led Nowhere to sell more than 10 million copies worldwide. Fast-forward two decades and Hanson – brothers Taylor, Zac, and Isaac still collaborate – is headlining concerts at sold-out venues around the world, while releasing a new studio album every few years. The trio is currently on the road supporting their second Christmas full-length album, the recently-released Finally, It’s Christmas.

Hanson made headlines again a few years back when the brothers launched the Hanson Brothers Beer Company and released its first beer, obviously named Mmmhops. Proving their beer business is not a one-note venture, additional varieties have since come out, including some launched at their annual Tulsa, Oklahoma, beer-and-music festival, Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival.

Jim Nabors has died at the age of 87

Goodbye, Gomer.

Jim Nabors, who created one of TV’s beloved comedic characters, Gomer Pyle, died Thursday in Hawaii at the age of 87, reports Hawaii News Now and the Associated Press.

The Alabama native had a long career that featured TV and movie roles, more than two dozen albums and numerous concert appearances, including long-running shows in Las Vegas and Hawaii, the latter of which became his home in the 1970s. He received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1991.

Nabors was best known for his role as the sweet, gentle Marine in the title role of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., a CBS comedy that was a top-five hit during its five-season run in the 1960s. Gomer’s dust-ups with his hard-nosed superior, Sgt. Carter (Frank Sutton), were the heart of the show and the character’s trademark exclamations — “Well, Golllll-ly!” and “Shazam!”— became familiar to millions.

‘The Bodyguard’ turns 25: Kevin Costner remembers Whitney Houston, ‘the perfect choice’ for the role

Whitney Houston was said to be “declining in terms of her popularity” when her name came up as a possible co-star/romantic partner for Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard, the hit drama that opened 25 years ago, on Nov. 25, 1992.

“That didn’t really matter to me. I just thought she was the perfect choice,” Costner told Yahoo Entertainment about the late pop icon during a 2014 Role Recall interview (watch clip above). “It wasn’t her ‘in’ moment. … Everybody alerted me to the fact that she was black, which I knew. It might have been easier two years earlier at her peak. But after that movie, she became, I think, one of the biggest stars in the world.”
