Casey Anthony: Dexter’s Next Victim?


When Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee last week, the internet reacted in a multitude of ways. Outrage on Twitter! Video montages of Nancy Grace’s reaction! And now, hypothesizing that Casey would be Dexter Morgan’s next victim. Dexter, of course, is the serial killer protagonist of the hit HBO Showtime show of the same name, who manages to be a “good guy” because he kills killers. Dexter often delights in the justice system “failing,” per se, because that means he gets to take justice into his own hands — hence this video imagining what his reaction would be to Anthony’s acquittal. Assuming, of course, that Dexter would believe that she’s guilty — his version of proof of guilt is often different than what would convince a jury. Keep reading »

I’m assuming this only works on people who can’t chew gum and jerk off at the same time. [The Clearly Dope] Keep reading »

Play DJ — Or Just Listen To A Stranger’s Rad Music All Day — On Turntable.fm

Hot new website alert! Turntable.fm is a new website — accessible to anyone with a Facebook account — where users get to play DJ for thousands of online listeners. So, how does it work? When you log in to the site, you have a choice of either entering an existing “room” or creating a “room” yourself. Each room can have a max of five DJs playing music that fits with the room’s theme at one time, but even if you’re not DJing, you can sit and listen. If you do want to DJ, you upload songs into the queue and when it’s your turn, your top song will play. Users can then vote if the song choice is Awesome or Lame — for each “Awesome” vote, the DJ gets a point which can then be put towards other site privileges, like fancy avatars. I haven’t had the balls to play DJ yet — users can chat online while the songs play and sometimes their assessment of a DJ’s picks can be harsh — but I have been hanging out in various “rooms” all weekend, listening to a mix of songs that I either haven’t heard in awhile or wasn’t privy to before. So far, my fave rooms have been “Indie While You Work” and “Just Dope Tracks” which plays a variety of hip-hop tunes from all eras. If you love music and are looking to mix up audio routine, check it out! [Turntable.fm] Keep reading »

James Franco Didn’t Think His Oscar-Hosting Performance Was Very Good Either

“For three or four weeks we shot the promos and the little film that played in the opening. In the last week, when we really started focusing on the script for the live show and did a run-through, I said to the producer, ‘I don’t know why you hired me, because you haven’t given me anything. I just don’t think this stuff’s going to be good.’ … As far as having low energy or seeming as though I wasn’t into it or was too cool for it, I thought, Okay Anne is going the enthusiastic route. I’ve been trained as an actor to respond to circumstances, to the people I’m working with, and not force anything. So I thought I would be the straight man and she could be the other, and that’s how I was trying to do those lines. I felt kind of trapped in that material. I felt, This is not my boat. I’m just a passenger, but I’m going down and there’s no way out.”

James Franco finally dishes on his infamously low-energy Oscar-hosting performance, which he was clearly and, now admittedly, unenthusiastic about, in an interview with Playboy. Find out what skit he was particularly unhappy about appearing in, after the jump… Keep reading »

Piglet Gets A Warm Bath


It’s Monday, which sort of sucks. I think we need a little pick-me-up. Check out this video of a chilly little piglet getting a warm bath. I love how blissed out he is. That’s how I would feel if I were sitting in the sunshine right now instead of my freezing cubicle. Keep reading »
