Researchers (Brigham Young University) found that not all people taking selfies are narcissists. In fact, there are three main types: Communicators, Autobiographers, and Self-Publicists.
• Communicators take selfies primarily to engage their friends, family or followers in a conversation. They’re all about two-way communication, like someone sharing an “I voted” selfie.
• Autobiographers use selfies as a tool to record key events in their lives and preserve significant memories. Such users want others to see their photos, but aren’t necessarily seeking the feedback.
• Self-publicists are the ones we usually think about when it comes to selfie snappers, but it’s actually the smallest of the three groups. They are the people who love documenting their entire lives, hoping to present themselves and their stories in a positive light.

A single page of a Spider-Man comic book has been sold for over $3 million. The page, which depicts Spider-Man’s first time donning his infamous all-black suit, fetched $3.36 million at auction last week, becoming the “world’s most valuable page of original comic book artwork,” according to Heritage Auctions. The winning bidder hasn’t been revealed, but whoever it was clearly knew their Spider-Man history. The page came from the 1984 Marvel crossover series “Secret Wars”. In the story, Spidey encounters an alien symbiote — sound familiar? — who gloms onto his traditional red-and-blue suit, which he damaged in battle.

The new film marks the ninth entry into the storied franchise, but ignores all 7 of the follow-up films to serve as a direct sequel to the original 1974 movie that changed the horror genre forever. The film hits Netflix on February 18. LINK: https://youtu.be/zcI6SFiK_yk

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
Bob Saget’s famous friends are continuing to keep his memory alive following his sudden passing last month. John Mayer, Dave Chappelle, Seth Green, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock and Jeff Ross came together to host a “punk rock Shiva” for the late star at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles over the weekend. It marked the second event of this type, with the first held on Jan16. His family, close friends and fans returned to the scene to pack the club’s Main Room as a way to pay tribute to him in what turned out to be a sold-out and star-studded benefit for a cause close to Saget’s heart, the Scleroderma Research Foundation. Hosted by Stamos, Mayer and Ross — the show went down as a “loosely structured, free-for-all” according to one attendee.
The robe worn by Muhammad Ali before his famous 1965 fight with Sonny Liston is up for auction, and it could sell for over $500,000.
