I predict more “Arrested Development” humor in your future. Especially if you receive a reading with this prophetic Tarot deck. See what fate has in store for you according to the Bluths. Just keep your fingers crossed that you don’t pull the death card. We all know how that worked out for Buster. [Buzzfeed]
There’s an interesting essay Chuck Klosterman wrote (it’s really very good, read the whole thing here) where he postulates:
There doesn’t seem to be much debate over what have been the four best television shows of the past 10 years. It seems like an easy question to answer, particularly since it’s become increasingly difficult to write about the state of TV (or even the state of popular culture) without tangentially mentioning one of the following four programs — “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Mad Men,” and/or “Breaking Bad.”
And that’s not just a Chuck Klosterman opinion. A commenter on a Vulture Recap of Breaking Bad remarks:
“This past season ‘Breaking Bad’ passed ‘The Sopranos’ as the best show ever on television (followed by ‘Deadwood’ and ‘Mad Men’).”
Well, if you say so. Keep reading »
Whoever decided to put a camera at the scariest point of Nightmares Fear Factory, a haunted house in Niagara Falls, is a genius. I never realized how freaking hilarious scared people look until I spent a solid hour last night looking at Nightmares’ Flickr stream. I think a road trip to Canada is in the near future. Click to look at some of the funniest scared s**tless people I have ever seen.
Tonight, in honor of National Coming Day, MTV is running a one hour documentary special, titled simply “Coming Out.” It follows several people as they come out to their friends and family — and shares both the good and bad reactions these kids face. In the trailer clip, above, college student Nevin makes the difficult decision to come out to his fellow rugby team members. Watch their surprising responses and check out the full episode tonight on MTV at 7 p.m.
“Just because the show was for kids, I would never write down. I would write the kind of deep, rich story that I would like to watch – just trusting it would communicate to the viewers, and it did. The characters were rich, and deep, and had a lot of life to them, a lot of threads… It was like a big, grand soap opera for kids. Also, I’ve found that the basic sense of someone who has two identities… That resonated with a lot of the viewers. There was just something about that fundamental essence of figuring out who you are, and being torn between two identities – particularly, I would have to say for a lot of gay viewers. I think it struck a very, very strong note for a lot of young gay people who were struggling with their own identity at the time.”
– Christy Marx, the creator of “Jem and the Holograms,” talks about the lasting power of the show. I totally missed the deeper level of Jem at the time. I mean, I was in the single digits. I loved Jem because I was already performing at the time. I related to the idea of being able to take on a different identity on stage. Also, her clothes were amazing. [MTV]
What is there to say about “Dedication To My Ex,” the catchy pop song by Lloyd all about his ex’s vagina? I mean, really, what should I say? I’ve been sitting here typing and deleting and typing again and … I just don’t know what to say. “Dedication To My Ex” is a super-catchy pop song that could have been written and performed by Hanson, if only the lyrics were not all about an unnamed ex and how her “p**sy done changed.” Keep reading »
