Celeb Causes - Ted Danson

"Where everybody knows your name, and they like to save the oceans?" No, that isn't the exact theme to the old TV fav Cheers but if one of the stars had his way it might have been. Actor Ted Danson, who played the bar-owner Sam Malone on Cheers is a huge ocean-lover. He is the co-founder of American Oceans Campaign (AOC), an organization devoted to safeguarding the vitality of the oceans and our coastal waters. While some celebs just throw their name along side a charity or cause, Ted Danson has thrown his whole self right into his cause and has even been known to chase senators into elevators trying to get them to listen.

Ted Danson has been successful as both an entertainer and environmentalist. He is now starring on the CBS hit Becker and his oceans work has earned him respect and a high profile in both environmental and political circles. His wife Mary Steenbergen is also an activist and is on the hit show Joan of Arcadia. So this summer, when you're surfing or swimming in the ocean without getting grossed out by sewage or dead fish think of Ted Danson.

Did you know swimming in a polluted ocean can cause nausea, skin rashes and diarrhea?

    Guess what? After 7 long years, there is FINALLY going to be another Chronicles of Narnia movie!! Yay! I always loved The Chronicles of Narnia book series, and the movies weren't that bad even though they changed some parts a lot (especially in Voyage of the Dawn Treader). I especially liked The Silver Chair book and REALLY wanted them to make a movie for it. So I'm really excited to see what they are gonna do. The director is Joe Johnston,  director for Jurassic Park:3, Jumanji, Captain America: The First Avenger and others. After 7 years, i thought there was no hope XD. But now there is. We have A New Hope. Ok whatever. This is Boredlol, signing off.

    Adam Ruins Everything. It's a brilliant TV show, with the goal of providing the viewer with the truth about common myths , misconceptions, and marketing schemes, in an entertaining and stimulating format. My favorite aspect of the show is that all the sources are displayed on the screen, so any claims made by the host can be fact-checked.
