I have no idea how this steered clear of my radar for so long. It's a show, financed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, airing on MTV, about a team of traveling news reporters who all have disabilities. It's being touted as an "inspiring" story. Here's some background that I found on the website and the video preview.
These are "outtakes" from the eTrade talking babies campaign. I think it's kind of awesome that giant corporations are now in an ad world where they are not beholden to FCC regulations. They can do way more risky things and end up getting way more intentional views of their spots just by having them online. The PETA thing is a perfect example, even though they are a traditional business. They were banned from being aired during the game so the blogosphere basically distributed the video for them. As more and more companies realize that the traditional 'make a multi-million dollar commercial and then pay a pile of money on a 30 second spot' is not the way to go, it's going to shake things up. Which is why I'm stockpiling ammunition, canned food, and bottled water.

We are living in exciting times people. EXCITING TIMES. When Rutherford B. Robot invented the first robot, I doubt he had the foresight to visualize just how far things would come. But today, with Rutherford's dream realized, we stand perched on a new world of fighting machines. We now enter a bold era of metal on metal destruction. And we have people like Michael Bay bearing the standard on our march. Awesome. BOOM!
Ahh yes– Superbowl Sunday. Better eat til you puke, watch crazy ads (Sobe has one in 3D!), and bet lots of money on the only game that matters, EVER. To kill time before that you have a movie with Liam Neeson beating the everloving crap out of Albanian woman-smugglers, and a horror movie with an actress that made a porn with Seth Rogen. Oh yeah, the Boss* is playing the half time show. Your preview, and possibly the best football themed music video ever produced after the jump.
Superbowl Sunday. Quite possibly the best Taken Taken Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailer The Uninvited The Uninvited Trailer – Watch more Entertainment
Everybody's gotta have a viral video these days. I gotta give these two credit for the intricately choreographed little duo dance. I would not have the cranial capacity to remember all the movies. Impressive. Now get back to work.
With repeats of 30 Rock and The Office, the final audition round for American Idol, and a Super Bowl Bash, there's nothing too hot on TV to get your panties in a bundle over. That being said, there are always solid movies–so pop up some Redenbacher Indiana Hoosier-berries and watch some Toob. Here are your options.
Little Billy spends so much time raising these here prize pigs he can't possibly internet-surf around to get his movie news. That's why he uses screenjunkies.com. Are you a fat kid that raises pigs?

I had to watch this a few times and do some googling around to figure out if it was fake or not. The problem/great part about having cheap, readily available digital technology is that there are plenty of people that think they will somehow convince a director to make their movie, so they make shorts like this. At least it can provide us with some laughs. So here's to all the Sal Lupos out there living the dream.
Did you forget who the hottest babes of 2008 were? It's ok. TV has you covered by rounding up a list of 100 beautiful babies from the year previous. After your eyes have been baraged by boobs, you should probably challenge your brain with the newest episode of Lost. Here's you're lineup.
Whatever your stance on the treatment of animals or the health benefits of a vegetarian diet may be, we can all come together and agree on one thing: it would just be super to be that pumpkin at the 14 second mark. Or the asparagus at 17 seconds. Or the pumpkin once again at 20 seconds. Man I want to be that pumpkin. It's a shame that NBC has banned this commercial which was supposed to play during the Super Bowl. There are two possibilities. Either the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has organized a giant consipracy to fight the airing such seditious material, or every single network exec at NBC is gay. Those are your options. You decide.
Tonight's TV gives you the choice of an hour's worth of absurd comedy from the brilliant people at Scrubs, OR an hour's worth of Fringe where the team has to find out why people's brains are being liquefied (then presumably mixed with Hennessy and sipped).Plenty more brain juice after the jump.
Steven Spielberg has drafted Will Smith into his quest to continue to take a dump on movies you hold in high esteem. This time it's Oldboy. The pair is just "in talks" at the moment and nothing official has been started. I like Will Smith, only because I don't dislike him. I also don't dislike the affordable and dependable Toyota Camry, Cinnabon, and MSNBC. They are all totally non threatening. Here's what's happening in Hollywood.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Jack Bauer spent it giving ladies the shocker (pictured above). Mine consisted of book shelving, cheap wine, and witnessing a midget dressed as Britney Spears strip to her underwear (Lil Wayne concert = worth the money). Tonight, House cares for a special ed teacher, and 24 heats up with Bauer starting to make his moves against the bad guys he's currently working for (crossing my fingers for a terrorist attack!). One of the greatest/funniest/golfiest movies of all time is also on tonight. More after the jump.
Ahh, the Hollywood Circle Jerk continues as award season gets into full swing with the adulations of the Screen Actors Guild being dished out last night. And the bottom line is this: Slumdog Millionaire is the best movie that has ever been made in the history of movies.

This past monday was considered the most depressing day of the entire year. I don't know how scientists decided that, but they are scientists so we must stand behind them as a country and not question their important work. My point is that there is a possibility that this could be the most depressing weekend of the year. You are best served to only leave the couch in order to visit your local theatre, or to purchase more liquor. Here are your options.
I was really impressed by this trailer. It looks pretty damn original with some fantastic art direction and a great concept. I have no idea what the budget is, but I cant imagine they dropped a lot of money on making it. My prediction is that the movie will turn heads and the director will sign with a studio and make something big and awesome and creepy. Or it will be a total flop that nobody will give a crap about. Before the verdict is in, check out the film's site.Thanks to Filmdrunk for the tip.

Just your typical Thursday Night TV– a solid chunk of laughs with new episodes from The Office and 30 Rock. And hey, why not dial into TruTV as a fallback during the commercials? Where else are you going to find the best penile fractures and crack fueled attempts at outrunning a helicopter with a 1987 Buick LaSabre? With music by Benny Hill.
The big story of the day continues to be the massive FAIL on the part of the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences regarding their Oscar nominations. I spend most of my day reading what I would like to think of as the opinions of younger, more in touch people. Mostly regarding movies, but sometimes regarding other stuff. These are the same sort of people that were massively influential in electing our new president, and who are way more adapted to the media environment that we're all living in. With that said, here are some of the fine works that represent this ascendent generation. Barack And Michelle Will Do What To Each Other? (Holy Taco) BIG NEWS FOR TWEENS! Dakota Fanning In New Moon? (Filmdrunk) Thelma and Louise. Only with 4 aging whores: Sex In The City 2 (WIMB) Seven Unintentionally Hilarious Movie Villains (Unrealitymag) Bill Hader To Cut People Into Tiny Pieces, Eat Them (Pajiba) Uwe Boll, Mike Myers Lead 'Official' 2008 Razzie Nominations (Playlist)
This year's nominations are official. And there are a few categories with which I am taking immediate umbrage (throws down top hat, removes monocle) #1: The Wrestler should be nominated for Achievement in Costume Design. It took Mickey Rourke DECADES to weave that human suit out of growth hormone, horse steroids, hooker sweat, and amateur boxing matches. #2. Springsteen's song for The Wrestler should have been nominated in the Original Song category. #3 The Reader does not deserve a nom for Best Picture. It's about a woman who can't read. We can not use America's preeminent award ceremony to promote illiteracy. #4. Benjamin Button was good, but not 13-noms-good. Check them out and have your say, Junkies.
If you've never seen Lost, then tonight is your night. The first hour attempts to recap everything that happened in the past four seasons, and then they proceeds to bombast you with a two hour premiere that will leave you stupeified and asking for more. Also check out FOX's new series Lie to Me starring Tim Roth as an expert in lie detection who helps the cops solve crimes. Would I be lying if I said I'm crapping my pants in anticipation for Lost? You be the judge.
There's this race in Portland, OR called the I-Tit-Arod where dudes have to go to every strip club in town and have a drink within 24 hours. There are something like 90 clubs. No one has ever finished the race. I hope there's a similar competition during the Inaugural Balls where young, brash Charlie-Wilson-esque state representatives have to stop at each party, chug a glass of scotch, sexually harass three Senate aids, and lobby for a new bridge in their home district. I'd call it the Inagarod. Now here's the links.

Barack Obama and his Super Friends take over all the stations for prertty much the entire day and night. You have every channel commenting on every single gesture everyone makes, with interspersed shots of really excited people screaming and jumping to be seen on TV at the biggest bash of all time. What, you're not drunk yet? I'm trashed! Surprisingly, FOX is running their regular schedule, which includes the return of Fringe. Welcome to the age of Obama!
I've been watching the MSNBC inauguration coverage out of the corner of my eye today. With the few delays– like Ted Kennedy having a seizure and a few gaffs– like Chief Justice John Roberts bungling the inaugural oath, it's been a pretty amazing day in DC, and the anchors have done a solid job. They spent some time talking about how cock-diesel the new Presidential Limo is. 5 inch thick blast proof doors, chemical attack-proof oxygen system, and other things we'll never know about. But what they didn't mention was that this bad-boy gatling gun suburban rolls behind it in the motorcade parade that's currently taking place. Hope and change are important and all. But if things go south, spraying a wall of lead is a nice backup plan. Check this video.
This is basically the last night that you will sleep while George W. Bush is your president. For some of you this may be the sad parting of a hawkish visionary who's tough guy politics heralded in a new era of American dominance. Others may be puking joy as Commander Dickface heads back to Crawford or Dallas or wherever to hopefully wither into obscurity and never talk in a public forum again. Whatever side you may be on, we will all most likely wake up tomorrow and things will basically be the same. Celebrate this new epoch of sameness with Screenjunkies and some of our link friends.

Here's a sobering MLK DAY factoid for you: 2000 was the first year all 50 states recognized it as a Federal holiday after it was passed as law in 1986. Ponder that a little bit, try to figure out why people wouldn't want a day off work, and then give yourself over to the TV. House is back in action tonight after a 4 week holiday break, and some terrorists are going to piss off Jack Bauer by flying planes into eachother. Your TV lineup after the jump.
I could spend all day listening to the quasi-poetic ramblings of boxing's greatest mouth. Mike Tyson is the dream realized. Poor kid from a rough neighborhood, no formal education, rising to the top of his sport only to get busted for sexual assault and chewing people's ears off in fights. Now he's still got that face tattoo and a new documentary coming out.And if you are not one of the 6 million people that has see this 'best moments' comp, then do yourself a favor.
