Elton JohnElton John has been receiving congratulatory notes from around Twitter-Wood this week, thanks to the birth of his son Zachary. Neil Patrick Harris even wants to pencil in some play dates as soon as possible.

In other tweets, Olivia Wilde graciously accepted some congrats from Chris Kattan, while John Cusack attempted to clear up some confusion about his travels among his friends. And I wouldn't recommend doing to your iPhone what Penn Jillette put his through, but he seems sold on the product's ability to withstand a two-story fall. Find out why -- and who wants to get married in a tribute to Hugh Hefner -- after the jump.

Green LanternThis week's "Green Lantern" trailer has been out in the world long enough to attract a range of reactions for the comics and mainstream crowds alike. Read what you will into James Gunn's assessment of the film, but he seems to think it would be better suited for Syfy.

As for the big theatrical release of the week, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" continues to be a hot topic in the Twitter-Wood feed. Brian Lynch and Andy Milonakis engaged in a deep exchange about the film's earnings, while Ben Stiller's been working on top of a building and Penn Jillette got up close and personal with a jacket that belonged to Harry Houdini. Those posts and more await you down below.

John StamosSooner or later, Fridays are going to require an all-image spinoff column if Twitter-Wood keeps up its current weekly output. Not only did Carlton Cuse get a rare shot of Bill Murray in the wild; a "Twilight" actor expressed fears that he looks too much like Will Smith, and John Stamos snuck another shot off of the "Glee" set.

In addition to Edgar Wright's reaction to "Paranormal Activity 2" today, you'll also find a confession from someone who impersonated Tom Hanks during the "Night of Too Many Stars" fundraiser last night and a "Jackass 3D" micro-review from Eli Roth. If that's still not enough for you, Jerry Bruckheimer revealed another few actors appearing in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

Britney Spears on GleeTwitter-Wood mourned the passing of "Bonnie and Clyde" director Arthur Penn today. Penn Jillette, who starred in Penn's "Penn and Teller Get Killed," offered his reactions to the news in a post, as did director Edgar Wright.

In lighter topics, the Britney Spears episode of "Glee" last night generated a lot of buzz; it also generated pictures on John Stamos' account and an intimidated reaction to Jane Lynch's performance from Spears. You'll find those posts and Kirstie Alley's defense of Michael Bolton on "Dancing with the Stars" down below, along with scandalous image from Russell Brand.

The health care bill that passed through the U.S. House last night dethroned Justin Bieber on Twitter's trending topics, but both of them showed up in Twitter-Wood chatter today. The bill had supporters and critics, and former Bieber critic Ken Jeong switched sides to Bieber neutrality, according to a confession post yesterday.

Elsewhere, everyone was watching something last night and had an opinion. Jessica Alba watched frogs jumping off cliffs, Edgar Wright caught a Blur documentary and Greg Mottola saw Ben Stiller in "Greenberg." Find out what they thought and which David Lynch collaborator and composer has a birthday today. It's all in Twitter-Wood for March 22nd, 2010. Read More...

The Winter Olympics have been entertaining plenty of Twitter-Wood citizens this week, but they've also been interfering with Seth Meyers' ability to understand who the captured Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is. Furthermore, they'll be going up against "Lost" on Tuesday night, but Damon Lindelof officially shrugged off the competition yesterday.

As for Kevin Smith's public Twitter tussle with Southwest Airlines over the weekend, plenty of his fellow tweeters have stepped up in support, including film critic Roger Ebert. You can check out Ebert's photo evidence, a comparison of "Twilight" to "Splash" and what actor Justin Chon looks like following cardio exercises after the jump.

You might not recognize the name Corey Taylor on its own, but you probably know his band, Slipknot. Formed in 1995, the metal band has been going strong since then, with their last album -- released in the summer of 2008 -- even hitting the number one spot on Billboard. You'd think that, after all that time, Taylor would know a little something about being metal.

As you can see in our first Daily TwitPic of 2010, he can't even get his "Devil Horns" hand sign right. Magician/comedian Penn Jillette, who poses for the pic with Taylor, even points out the faux pas in his tweeted description. The thumb should never be visible for proper Devil Horns; Taylor seems to be confusing his sign of the horns with the Shaka hand sign, a traditional greeting amongst surfers. Read More...

News that "Poltergeist" actress Zelda Rubinstein has been taken off of life support didn't go unnoticed by horror movie fans in the Twitter-Wood community this week. The sad revelation caught the attention of both Richard Kelly and Jeff Katz (on his birthday, nonetheless), and I definitely echo those sentiments to her family.

In other posts, attempted underwear bomb from last week is still a trending topic among tweeters. Kevin Nealon was among those contemplating the ongoing investigation yesterday. Catch those thoughts after the jump along with Brian Lynch on Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner, Christina Applegate and Emmy Rossum on James Cameron's work in "Avatar" and more in the Twitter-Wood report for December 30, 2009.

I think Warmoth's own comments in Twitter-Wood yesterday sum up today's Daily TwitPic best: "I chose a shot that country music fans will appreciate and everyone else in the free world will at least experience bewilderment at." Penn Jillette (the guy on the left in that image off to the side), one half of the Penn & Teller comedy/magic/commentary team, apparently falls into the country music fan cateogry. He's quite happy to be in today's Daily TwitPic photo with country singer David Allan Coe.

It's worth noting two things about Coe: (1) he claims (or claimed) to have killed a man while in prison, which earned him a temporary space on death row and (2) two of his albums -- "Nothing Sacred" and "Underground" -- are laced with mature themes, profanity and outright racial slurs. The death row claim has been refuted somewhat, though it is a fact that Coe spent time in an Ohio prison. And now he hangs with pundit magicians. Read More...

Could observations about the relationship between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore reveal your key financial prosperity? Well, at least one CNBC analyst thinks they might, and the happy couple was amused enough to tweet their reactions today in the Twitter-Wood feed.

The feed experienced an image-heavy weekend of tweets -- enough that selecting a Twitter Pic of the Day was not a cut-and-dry decision this afternoon. In the end, I chose a shot that country music fans will appreciate and everyone else in the free world will at least experience bewilderment at. It's a candid photo from Vegas that Penn Jillette recently caught with singer David Allan Coe. Its creepy second-placing challenger was a piece of fan art someone put together for Rose McGowan. In the old days fans depended on pencils and crayons; now, they have 3-D rendering software. Feast your eyes below, because it's all in the Twitter-Wood report for August 24, 2009. Read More...
