1. "Saved by the Bell" horror show: Miles Fisher might be best known for his music video of the Talking Heads' "Naïve Melody," in which he re-created shots from "American Psycho" with such realism that you'd almost believe the actor/singer was Christian Bale's younger brother.


Now starring in "Final Destination 5," Warner Bros. has released an original song of Fisher's called "New Romance." It's a gruesome take on "Saved by the Bell."

2. Roseanne Barr is running for president: Gods be good, she's not kidding. And of course she announced it on Leno.

3. An accidental proposal: Some might say this was one of those Improv Everywhere/viral marketing stunts, but it looks genuine enough to me. After all, what better time to propose to your girlfriend than after she returns from a trip?

I'm more suspicious about what this newscaster was reporting on outside an airport. Should we be concerned?


4. Coldplay's tribute to Amy Winehouse: Unsurprisingly touching. I'm not going to lie, I got a little teary-eyed when the band's cover of "Rehab" blended seamlessly into their own bittersweet hit "Fix You."

5. Coppola's "Twixt" to be live-edited: Like a Choose Your Own Adventure Story, Francis Ford Coppola's latest cinematic experience offers several different narrative directions, chosen in real-time by audience reactions. Sounds kind of gimmicky, but the trailer looks amazing. Plus, it's narrated by Tom Waits.
