What’choo Talking About, Todd Bridges?

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the June 4th, 2009

You may not want to run up to legendary American TV actor Todd Bridges and yell “What’choo talkin’ bout, Willis?” (in case you were born in the 90’s, Bridges played Gary Coleman’s older brother Willis on the historic TV series “Diff’rent Strokes” — the molestation episode is classic!) For the past few years, Bridges has joined the ranks of professional wrestling. If he gets annoyed by Willis fans, he just might body slam them! Bridges is known in the ring as Mr. Not So Perfect — and if you check out the internets, you’ll see his grown up days have been exactly that, including some serious criminal charges. That’s why we love him so. Building his own computers from the ground up, playing PC games, and talkin’ smack online, Willis identifies as a true computer geek. Watch the interview to hear his politcal thoughts on Cary Coleman’s run for governor and the current California Governator. Also, watch for his online gamer tag so you can wrestle him yourself! Don’t forget to peep past the credits for a special challenge from the Slutsky.

All Your Famous People Belong To Us

What does a 24-year-old physics student have to do with running celebrity-focused ajax-yummy site Kevo? GETV flew all the way to Los Angeles to find out. We met up with late-blooming geekstar Will Jessup (he discovered his Java genius only a few years ago) and asked him to show us his very LA-LA-land labor of love. Basically, Will wants to create the end-all source of information on all famous people in the whole universe. Kevo is like wikipedia for celebrities but with features of digg and none of those pesky wikipedia problems where anyone can edit anything — users have to earn karma points and can’t edit pages pages that are worth more points than they have earned so far. Get it? I know, even Will admits he may be too brilliant for his own good, but we discourage anyone from dumbing themselves down just to be understood. That’s what we’re here for.
