Something Completely Different: China is Crowded
Saturday, October 18 by

When I see something so awesome that has nothing to do with Movies or TV, I’m just going to post it anyway.  This is reason number 4,563 to stay the hell away from China. “What do you do for a living?” “Oh, you know those dudes that cram people into trains? I’m one of those guys. My father did it. That's how I got the job.”

Ed Harris Screaming
Friday, October 17 by

 We do these lists of craziest moments of stars.  Last week I really wanted to do one on Ed Harris. But after digging around for the better part of a day I could only find about four good ones. That’s not enough for a list. But yesterday Mr. Appaloosa came strutting into the Coffee Bean in Burbank where I was standing in line so he could get his daily ice blended fix.

Watch a Guy Almost Die on the Today Show
Friday, October 17 by

Since I work from home like a shady pot dealer, I could watch The Today Show if I wanted to, but, like most people who aren't 60-year-old women, I think it's boring. But, this clip shows a guy doing a tight rope act with no net on live TV. Plus, it was in Newark, NJ, which makes it about 30-times more dangerous.

You Have To Smile With Your Eyes
Friday, October 17 by

Tyra has a point. John needs to learn how to project success, otherwise that Barack fellow might win the president contest. You’re a tiger McCain, a ferocious tiger. Grrrrrrrr.

Will Ferrell Brings Bush to Broadway
Friday, October 17 by

First W. gets his own Oliver Stone movie and now we find out that Will Ferrell will be playing him on Broadway. The show, You're Welcome America. A Final Night with George Bush will debut on inauguration day, January 20th and will be helmed by Ferrell's brother from another mother, Adam McKay. I wonder if W.

Bonus Features: Thursday’s Colorful Links
Thursday, October 16 by

Sony has made some awesome commercials for their Bravia TVs, but of course we never get to see them here in the States. This one has to do with some big ass dominoes falling all over the place.

Do We Really Need All Of This Potty Talk?
Thursday, October 16 by

I dunno, of all the ways to go, killer boobies might not be that bad.

Little Bill O’Reilly Obliterates Spin
Thursday, October 16 by

Sometimes I do this job from public. Right now is one of those times. I’m sitting in a coffee shop and I’m laughing really hard and people around me are scooting away from me because they think I’m an insane homeless guy with a laptop.

Watch First 11 Minutes of Sex Drive
Thursday, October 16 by

As part of my never-ending efforts to steal resources from your places of work, I'm presenting you with the first ten minutes of the movie Sex Drive. Be warned, it definitely earns its R-rating with bad words, an implied BJ and some full-on man ass footage. It's very funny.

Favreau Vs. Hawk At Stan Winston Studios
Thursday, October 16 by

This is some footage shot with a low budge camera during the making of an Iconoclasts episode with Tony Hawk and Jon Favreau. If you haven’t seen iconoclasts, it’s sort of hit or miss show from the Sundance Chanel that pairs movers and shakers in various industries.

The 7 Most Underrated Hot Chicks on TV
Thursday, October 16 by

It's easy to appreciate the Tricia Helfers and Hayden Panettieres currently strolling across our TV screens, making us disappointed with the caliber of girls that are actually willing to spend time with us.

The Bus Stop Turned Me Into A Porn Star
Wednesday, October 15 by

Looks like the intended controversy about Zack and Miri is starting to wind up. Ads have been pulled from Fox Sports during broadcasts of the Dodgers. Apparently there have been complaints from concerned parents about how to explain what a Porno is to their children.

CBS Sports Covers Aspergers Syndrome
Wednesday, October 15 by

Your parents paid good money so that you could go to college to learn and have sex, not to hump a cleaning utensil and play a watered down version of smear the queer. If you are a Harry Potter fan, then we don’t mean to offend you by poking fun. But seriously, come on. You just can’t defend this. It’s one thing if the brooms were actually magic. But they are not.

Bonus Features: Putting the “C” in CNN
Wednesday, October 15 by

Boy, this political race sure is getting dirty. First Fox News got all fired up about that Sarah Palin shirt and now CNN is going all potty mouth. Oh well, here are some nice, clean links to rescue your brain out of the gutter. Thanks to Holy Taco for pointing out the video.

D.L. Hughley And CNN Attempt The Already Attempted
Wednesday, October 15 by

The Onion, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert are funny because they have come from comedy. The writers and producers have a comedic background, and have made careers out of intelligent humor. When you try to do funny news in the other direction—by starting with news and letting news people run the show—it’s always a disaster.  Now we have a new one, from D.L. Hughley and CNN.

Hear Hayden Panettiere Drop an F-Bomb
Wednesday, October 15 by

I know that her swearing isn't the point of this video, but to be honest, I'm kind of over the whole "celebrities weigh in on the election" thing. But, this one is short and has a hot chick so I like it much more than most of the others. I'll admit, that it even made me chuckle a little.

Bonus Features: Tuesday’s Links for Dummies
Tuesday, October 14 by

Above you'll find the new poster for the sure to be incredibly shitty rom-com, The Ugly Truth. See, it's clever because it suggests that women love with their minds, while men just want to get their junk wet. I didn't know it was possible for Hollywood to "reboot" a bumpersticker, but they've done it.

Luc Besson Film Torched By French Youths
Tuesday, October 14 by

From Paris With Love is the title of legendary director Luc Besson’s film staring John Travolta about troubled youth living in French slums.  The film has reached some catastrophic problems having to do with shooting near troubled youth living in French Slums. 

Fox News Sad About a Sarah Palin T-Shirt
Tuesday, October 14 by

I used to have a Blood for Blood T-shirt that said "Fuck Fred Durst" on the back and people used to get offended by it from time to time. I never quite made it to Fox News, though. Apparently there are some nasty T-shirts floating around with a mean message about the potential VP and it has this anchor and a feminist via satellite pretty upset. Uncensored pic after the break.

Nick Cage PSA
Tuesday, October 14 by

I don’t know where people stand on this issue. But in the coming months we all have to come together as a nation and make a serious decision about Nicholas Cage.

Howard Out, Don Cheadle In For Iron Man 2
Tuesday, October 14 by

We don't usually do these little casting notes, but this is a pretty big one. Tony Stark's pal, Jim Rodes (who also happens to be War Machine) will be played by Don Cheadle instead of Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2. It's a trade-up in my opinion, as long as Don doesn't bring his awful accent from Ocean's 11.

You’re Entering a World of McCain
Tuesday, October 14 by

I never noticed how much John McCain and Walter from The Big Lebowski really have in common. They both mention their military service at times when it's completely inappropriate and they both love firearms.

Bonus Features: Links to Cure the Mondays
Monday, October 13 by

Not everything Spike Jonze has done in his career has been spectacular, but the opening sequence for Lakai's "Fully Flared" skate video is amazing. Even if you're not a skater, you can still appreciate all the stuff that blows up. Plus, it'll help hold you over as you wait for Where the Wild Things Are.

New Sex Drive Clips
Monday, October 13 by

The genius thing about making a movie with a donut costume is that you can shoot some promo videos for relatively cheap. You don’t have to sit the smartest dudes from the internet down in a windowless room to come up viral gold. Skateboarding and being unable to bend at the waist are entertaining enough. Click through for the second one.

Empire’s Predictable List of 500 Greatest Movies
Monday, October 13 by

I was going to include this in the link dump, but I just spent a half hour counting all of the movies I have seen from this list and I thought you might want to do the same. My tally came in at 251. There are quite a few older movies in there I just haven't gotten around to seeing as well as a whole shitload of Disney animated movies I don't care about.

Monday Mashup: How Scarface Got His Groove Back
Monday, October 13 by

Vice magazine made a point once that if you really think about it Scarface is really a story about a coked-up Cuban dude who was on top for about 2 years before screwing it all up and getting absolutely riddled with bullets.  With that in mind, he has given countless fat kids who sport an oversized shirt bearing his semblance something to aspire to.

We Let the Chihuahua Win…Again
Monday, October 13 by

I know, this isn't a great time for new movies, but is it so bad that we had to make an awful talking-dog movie take the number one spot two weeks in a row? Have you even considered the repurcussions? Think of how many headlines this morning have a stupid "top dog" pun in them. And with that kind of showing, there's no question that there's going to be a sequel.

Bonus Features: Friday! Friday!
Friday, October 10 by

Personally, I thought last night's primetime SNL show was boring and unfunny, but posting political clips gets the Huffington Post a zillion clicks a week so I figure I should get in on that action, too.

Faking Orgasms Movie In Production
Friday, October 10 by

If it’s one thing that I continually get busted on it’s faking orgasms.

Marisa Tomei Naked in The Wrestler
Friday, October 10 by

We may be late to the party on this one. But our list of reasons to see Darren Aronofsky’s new movie just got longer with the realization that Marisa Tomei plays a stripper. A naked stripper. For the uninitiated, Tomei is a serious MILF who has somehow only gotten hotter with age. Here area few pics.
