Why Would Anyone Watch A Male Spin-Off Of “The View”?

the view for men

Rumor has it Barbara Walters is in talks to start a spin-off of “The View” aimed towards men, starring a cast of both men and women. It hopes to air during the time slot soon-to-be vacated by Oprah. The D-list talent rounded up so far includes Bryant Gumbel as moderator; comedian Alec Mapa, who played Suzuki St. Pierre on “Ugly Betty”; BET news anchor Jacque Reid; and former Fox News host E.D. Hill. According to The New York Daily News, “[the show] will attempt to inject a male perspective into the topics of the day.” Um, that’s called nearly all of nighttime news/chat TV already. Allow me to introduce to you Larry King, David Letterman, Brian Williams, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno, Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, Conan O’Brien, Shephard Smith … Keep reading »

Video: Just Horsing Around

I’m obsessed with this video of a horse having playtime with a Bosu ball. If I were an animal, this is how I’d play. In fact, this is kind of what I look like at the gym. Hence, why the horse is my (latest) spirit animal. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Old-School Wednesdays: The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony


In 1997, The Verve released their third full-length record, Urban Hymns, which included the band’s breakout hit “Bittersweet Symphony.” That song, which would later be used in a pivotal scene in the camp movie “Cruel Intentions,” was accompanied by a standout video, featuring singer Richard Ashcroft stonily walking down a busy London street. We love it, and the song, and decided this Hump Day to remind you of its awesomeness.

And true or false: The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft and his Skeletor face are totally hot? (Answer: TRUE). Keep reading »

How I Learned To Play Soccer And Love The Ball

I am not what you call graceful and athletic. When I told my friends/parents/significant other that I was joining a co-ed soccer team they laughed. I mean, my mom laughed. In my face. And my mom is a professional guidance counselor and is aware of what laughing in your kid’s face does to their self-esteem. So, yeah, not many people expected that I would stick with it. But three years and nine seasons later, I am actually a soccer team captain. And I couldn’t be happier. Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From !!! To Ra Ra Riot

It’s Tuesday, aka New Music Day. And let me tell you, girl, this week is the jammiest! Shine up those dancin’ shoes because my favorite psychedelic party band !!!

So, get those headphones on because you’re going to wanna rock out after the jump. Keep reading »

Catblocking: What Happens When Your Kitty Doesn’t Want You To Get Down


The one problem with having a pet or dating someone with a pet is that sometimes that pet gets in the way of having a good time. In this hilarious Funny or Die video, Dave Franco (that’s James’ brother) is trying to get it on with Jamie Lynn-Sigler, but his cat Arturo is kind of, well, c**kblocking him. Catblocking. Whatever. From now on, when my dog Lucca decides to hop up on the bed and sniff my sex partner’s bare butt while we’re doing our business, I am going to call it dogblocking. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Ridiculous New Blog: Hungover Owls

The new blog Hungover Owls is exactly the kind of pure silliness I live for. It features pictures of owls looking kind of busted, as if they’d had a wild night of boozing, and, as a bonus, we see their ridiculous morning-after thought bubble. Now that I think about it, owls always look kind of hung over. Like this fellow who is thinking, “My brain is screaming. I don’t have time for this s#@t.” We suggest some aspirin and a nap in that tree hole, buddy. Not so wise anymore, eh? [Hungover Owls] Keep reading »

Danielle Staub Warbles Again — This Time With Backup Dancers!


Hey guys, how did you spend your morning? Mine was significantly less exciting than Danielle Staub’s. She made her morning news performance debut on New York’s “PIX Morning News,” performing her song “Real Close” alongside a harem of gay male dancers and her possible-romantic partner Lori Michaels. It’s pretty impossible for me to put into words how amazingly atrocious this performance is. Here, let Ami try: “Noooooo! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! My day is over.” Meanwhile, Annika thinks it’s terribly sad that Danielle has stolen her younger daughter’s dream of being a singer, to which Julie adds, “Yes, and that isn’t even the saddest thing in that girl’s life.” True. Also: “I feel like my soul has been sucked out of my body.” Yes, that just about sums it up. [PIX Morning News] Keep reading »

Girl English Bulldog Is “Family Guy” Fan

It all seems well and good at the beginning when you realize you don’t need a roommate when you have a TV-watching English bulldog to share the sofa with. But then the darn dog will not surrender the remote control and insists on watching every episode of “Family Guy” over and over again. Finally, you have to bribe her with a sow’s ear to give you back the remote, and then she forgets all about Brian and Stewie. Until tomorrow night. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Bjork Enlists Moomins To Star In “The Comet Song” Video

If you ever read Finn Family Moomintroll as a child, you’ll surely recognize the characters who populate Bjork‘s latest music video, “The Comet Song.” The Moomins children’s book series was created by Tove Jansson and went on to gain worldwide popularity, primarily due to its main characters: soft, white, fluffy Mommin creatures that live in Finland. The song appears in “Moomins and the Comet Chase,” a new movie compiled from a stop motion Moomin TV series that ran in Poland from 1977 to 1982. It stars Moomintroll, Moominmama, Moominpapa, Snufkin, Sniff, a Hemulen, the Hattifatteners, and more. (But where’s Little My?) [Your Music Today] Keep reading »
