Boy Meets World Memoir ...
Not Everyone 'Membas

Daniel Fishel's old “Boy Meets World” co-stars came out to show her some love at her book signing ... which is awesome. Now, whether the book is an awesome just depends on who you ask -- as the guys found out.
Little old ladies and 90s TV shows not called "Golden Girls" ... not a great mix. Who knew?

'Love & Hip Hop: Hwood' Star
I'm Going Bulletproof
Rap Game is Too Deadly
9/14/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hip hop producer Mally Mall is pimping his sick ride -- not for style, but for safety -- bulletproofing his Maybach because he tells us there's way too much shooting in the biz these days.
The new "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" cast member says he sent his custom whip to Richie Rich at West Coast Customs for what you might call the POTUS treatment -- full bulletproofing AND bombproofing.
Mall says the windows all have double-pane glass (with the holes to return fire if needed) -- and the frame is layered with steel plates. He says the vehicle virtually indestructible now ... though we'd love to see who was dumb brave enough to test it.
As we first told you ... Mally helped squash the Drake-Chris Brown beef -- but he says recent shootings involving Suge Knight and Chris Brown, and backstage at Wiz Khalifa's show ... made him think it's time for security upgrades.
Carpooling with African wild cats doesn't hurt either.

Some Holes in her guitar playing

The Piano Guys
Bach Would Be a Badass Popstar
9/10/2014 12:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Piano Guys are racking up millions of YouTube hits with their mashups of classical songs and pop songs ... like Vivaldi and “Let It Go” from "Frozen."
So, naturally, we had to know who else from the classical world could crush it in modern music -- and the guys went for baroque! Sorry, that was awful.
If only we could go Bach.
