Professional pretty person/ex-Kanye girlfriend Amber Rose decided to reenact not-even our favorite scene from Mean Girls (“Danny DeVito I love your work!” or anything with Lizzy Caplan, obviously,) for no reason whatsoever, and it’s glorious.
Also featuring Waka Flocka, Ed Sheeran and Iggy Azalea, because, why not? Apparently this was on MTV, which is sad because we are missing a lot of good stuff on there these days in our silent protest of dating shows that involve algorithms. Read More
What is this? This is barely even a clue. Last night’s Jeopardy hint under “Scandal” for 800 was not only full of shitty punctuation, but a little too easy to be anything than Trebek throwing elbows:
In 2013 Rob Ford,
Mayor of this 4th-
Largest city in N.
America, First said
He smoked weed, not crack…then yes,
OK, crack, too.

To be fair, Hotel Room wasn’t critically acclaimed when it premiered on HBO in 1993 (The New York Times called the three-part series a place “where stories go nowhere, anecdotes are pointlessly bizarre and lame quips are echoed emptily, as if banality were a form of wit), but some one-off projects are better enjoyed after a TV failure and rebirth.
Besides, David Lynch’s collaboration with Jay McInerney and Wild at Heart scriptwriter Barry Gifford is the kind of esoteric zeitgeist–not an oxymoron, at least in this context–that might actually be better with age. The tale involves a New York hotel room–number 603 of the Railroad Hotel–at three different points in time.
How odd will the Breaking Bad spin-off starring Bob Odenkirk’s lawyer character, Saul Goodman, going to be? Well, think about it: So far the show, tentatively titled Better Call Saul (after the character’s famous late night commercials), has been cast as a half-hour comedy. According to the Twitterverse, people have already started comparing it to Breaking Bad, which the show will be a prequel to. (Which makes sense, especially for anyone who looking forward to Mike Ehrmantraut cameos.)
But tonally? We imagine the show going to some very dark places indeed. Read More
In case you totally forgot about the Jewish holiday that began last night because you were too busy trying to talk to Peggy Siegal at the Style Awards last night and when your mom called and was like “Le’shana Tova” and you were all “Shana…OH-SHIT!” (hypothetically), don’t worry, you still have time to repent. Yom Kippur is just around the corner, after all.
A good way to start off the new year is putting “Get Clarity” on your Smartphone device and listening to the cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” by Aish.com, “the world’s largest Jewish content website,” according to their press materials. Read More
Look, it’s a dead chicken. A creepy little girl voice sings a cover of “Paint It Black.” Cut to an upside down question mark, like in Spanish. Here is the ocean.
Now back to the chicken.
Zoom in on the back of someone (we don’t know who!) opening up a copy of iMovie and juxtaposing a bunch of confusing images together to cause an inordinate amount of Internet speculation; getting people psyched over the prospect that one day, they might be allowed to view the full commercial.

A young Patton Oswalt, pre-King of Queens (and later career shift into being the King of Nerds), was just a hustling stand-up comic, trying to make his way as a 19-year-old performing in a comedy video hosted by your student loan company. No seriously. Not Sallie Mae, or anything as specific as that. Just a vaguely threatening, overarching oligarchical entitty known as “student loans” paid for Mr. Oswalt’s first gig, which the actor/comedian confirmed on Twitter: “First paid acting gig. 19 years old. $300. Educational video about student loans. Sweater vest. Kill me:” Read More
James Franco, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and Lonely Island Get Married on Spring Break (Video)
As part of YouTube’s “Comedy Week,” Zach Galifianakis held a very special edition of his Funny or Die web series Between Two Ferns which starts out like a regular James Franco interview but then gets weird real quick. Lonely Island and Edward Norton co-star, which is great, because we haven’t seen those guys in forever. (Edward Norton, where’ve you been hiding?) Read More
