James Bond’s Aston Martin For Sale At Auction for $5 Million

According to Philly.com

LONDON – The Aston Martin driven by Sean Connery in the James Bond movies is going on sale at a London auction in October.

The silver 1964 Aston Martin DB5, dubbed by car auctioneers RM Auctions as “the world’s most famous car,” is expected to fetch at least $5 million.

The car is one of only two original Aston Martins featured on screen with Sean Connery behind the wheel in “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball.” It comes with Bond gadgets including fake machine guns, revolving number plates and smoke screen.

The model is being sold by U.S. radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, who bought it for $12,000 in 1969. It has since remained in his home and rarely been seen publicly.

RM Auctions said Tuesday the car is going under the hammer Oct. 27.”

Jerry Lee is the owner of Philly’s own B101 radio station. I valet parked at his house once and he personally took me into his man cave in his basement to see the car. It is awesome. He also has a sick pinball machine collection.

Top Five College Movies to Watch and Learn From

By Abragail Kappel for The Real College Guide

If “Intro to College Themes in American Cinema” didn’t make it to your class sched, check out the Cliffs Notes on our top picks. Popcorn, anyone?

What is it about movies set on college campuses? So many of these films have become modern classics we find ourselves watching over and over again. That’s why we decided to rent and review a few of our favorites, and re-evaluate them for their underlying lessons.

Good Will Hunting (1997)

It’s the story of a guy too poor to go to college who works as a janitor for the most prestigious technology institute: MIT. A teacher takes special interest in him after discovering he’s got some mad math skills. This is the film that made Matt Damon and Ben Affleck famous. The two actors wrote and starred in the movie, which won two Oscars, one for Best Original Screenplay. Robin Williams took Best Supporting Actor for his role as the “lost” psychologist who doesn’t regret anything in his life except the loss of his wife.

Lesson worth remembering: Don’t be afraid to take a shot at something.

Go after what you want when you have a chance, because you never know when the opportunity will arise again. Art imitated life in this case, because that’s exactly what Affleck and Damon did: Two 20-something kids took a leap and made one heck of a successful movie.

Animal House (1978)
If you haven’t seen Animal House, what are you waiting for? This comedy classic takes us to a misfit fraternity filled with seven-year college students and boys who love to party. One word: toga! It’s all about the sex, drinking and a cool oldies soundtrack (the film is set in 1962).

Lesson worth remembering: Classes don’t teach you everything.

Okay, that doesn’t mean you get to skate through school just because Bluto (late comedian John Belushi) can get a 0.0 GPA and still become a (spoiler alert!) U.S. senator. School is important … but sometimes the best lessons we learn are those we take away from the experiences we have while in college.

Michael Bay Fires Megan Fox from “Transformers 3”

According to Deadline Hollywood:  “I’ve just learned that Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox‘s option on Transformers 3 — and that it was “ultimately” director Michael Bay‘s decision. (So he gets his revenge for her remark comparing him to “Hitler”.) Right now Bay and writer Ehren Kruger et al are finishing up the script for the threequel and “giving Shia a new love interest makes more sense for the story,” an insider tells me. Bay will start casting immediately for the new female co-star. Let’s hear your suggestions, readers… So did Megan deserve to get fired? I say yes. No actor/actress can expect” Read the rest here

If you ask me, Michael Bay just made the biggest mistake of his life. Now all he has is a bad movie with no hot chick.
