How Michael Ian Black Makes a Childrens Book – Watch more Funny VideosThe relationship between author and illustrator can be a volatile one, especially when Michael Ian Black is the author and he thinks your drawings suck in comparison to his words. Black has just released a new children's book entitled The Purple Kangaroo, and it appears from the above video that him and illustrator Peter Brown had some disagreements on the overall style of the project. Brown only wants to seek a common ground, and Black only wants to wipe his ass with the preliminary sketches. While writing that last sentence I realized that both of these men have surnames that are colors. The colors of most poop. For that reason alone they should get along.These links are very accommodating.25 Hilarious Storefronts (HolyTaco) Coach Throws Ball at Player's Head (TotalProSports) 5 Oscar Longshots We're Rooting For (Moviefone) Day of the Dolphin is a Movie That Exists (FilmDrunk) Punch-Face of the Week: Jay Hieron vs. Joe Riggs (CagePotato) People Dressed as Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park (Unreality) Porn Star Gives an S&M Tutorial (Asylum) Nic Cage's Magical Mystery Hair (Maxim) Michael Jackson's 3D Grammys Tribute (SuperTremendous) Olivia Wilde in Italian GQ Magazine (CelebJihad) 10 Most Egregious Oscar Snubs of 2010 (Pajiba) 25 Sexy Motivational Posters (TheChive) Terry the Bi, Bi-Polar, Polar Bear (Atom) How to Be a Spy in a Week (MadeMan) Biggest Off-Season Rumors of 2010 (AllLeftTurns)

‘Stella’ Short: ‘Bored’ w/ Sam Rockwell
Saturday, July 11 by

Happy Saturday, junkies!  If you haven't already read our weekend preview, you might have missed that Comedy Central ran episodes of both "The State" and "Stella" in the wee hours of the morning.  They likely didn't run this: an NSFW short written and driected by, and starring David Wain, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter – a.k.a. Stella. It's my favorite of the "Stella Shorts," which preceded the Comedy Central show (a show which had Star Wars-level production value by comparison).  Look for Moon and Iron Man 2's Sam Rockwell as a pizza delivery guy.  With music by John Cougar Mellencamp.

Network: Comedy CentralCast: David Wain, Michael Ian Black, Michael ShowalterSynopsis: The official synopsis reads: A sketch comedy show that follows the absurd adventures of Michael, Michael and David.  But that doesn't do this show justice.  It only lasted a season, but is available on DVD and we strongly recommend you pick it up, especially Disc 1, which includes, "Office Party," possibly my favorite 22 minutes of Prime Time TV EVER.Status: Cancelled
