Last year, chainsaw in hand, surfer and bar owner Finley “Fin” Shepard (Ian Ziering) defended Los Angeles from deadly sharks scooped from the sea by a freak storm and rained onto Tinseltown. Syfy’s campy horror flick “Sharknado” turned into one of the biggest social-media stories of 2013. Come Wednesday, July 30, on Syfy, the freak storm strikes again, as “Sharknado 2: The Second One” crosses the continent to hit New York City.

Amid the costumes and fantasy of this weekend’s Comic-Con convention, a group of young women drew widespread attention to a very real issue — allegations of sexual harassment at the annual pop-culture festival. Geeks for CONsent, founded by three women from Philadelphia, gathered nearly 2,600 signatures on an online petition supporting a formal anti-harassment policy at Comic-Con. Conventioneers told Geeks for CONsent they had been groped, followed and unwillingly photographed during the four-day confab.

Rock musician swaps Skivvies for high heels in ‘Pageant’
Performing as a woman in the off-Broadway spoof “Pageant: The Musical” has presented unique challenges for Nick Cearley — much like playing in his underwear with his rock band The Skivvies. The actor-musician alternates between wearing too much and too little clothing. “One day, I would really like to wear a sweater,” Cearley said with a smile. “I feel that there has to be a healthy balance somewhere, sometime, where I could actually just wear my normal clothes.”
