Can I just say that, for the record, I think it was kind of tacky of HBO to air the season finale of “True Blood” on 9/11? I’m not trying to say that yesterday should have been devoid of entertainment, but after an emotional day of watching the memorial service and television docs that recalled the violence of 2001, the last thing I was in the mood for was gore. Just sayin’—could HBO not have waited until next week to air the finale? Or at least started the season a week earlier? Feels like such a strange decision.
That said, last night’s episode was one of the best in a long time. After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF moments. Keep reading »
You haven’t made it until you’ve gotten a parody porn —that’s how we know “Bridesmaids” is a smashing success! Next time your boss isn’t looking, check out this “Bridesmaids” parody porn trailer. There’s girl-on-girl kissing. There’s a terrible Irish accent. And there’s really, really, really bad acting. Congratulations, Kristen Wiig, you’re a star! [BuzzMedia] Keep reading »
Behold, a creepy yet awesome promotion for “Contagion,” which opened this weekend. Warner Brothers hired an ad agency to create billboards for the flick … grown from bacteria and fungi. This project began in a petri dish on August 28th and, in this video, you can see the fully bloomed result.
Now, “Contagion” has a lot going for it. In addition to this super creative advertising scheme that is now going viral (pun intended), the flick stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, and Kate Winslet and was directed by legendary Steven Soderbergh. But there’s still no way you could pay me to see it. Keep reading »
You guys, I would never make fun of another person’s mental health issues. Never. However, when this clip for “Hoarding: Buried Alive: ENSLAVED BY PUPPETS” (the full episode aired last night) popped up in my inbox, well…. Reads the copy on the press release:
“Donna was living her dream, performing as a professional ventriloquist in New York City before she left the stage to raise a family. But after a bitter divorce and subsequent bout with depression, Donna became convinced that she’d one day return to ventriloquism and began compulsively purchasing hundreds of ventriloquist dummies. Soon her collecting expanded far beyond just a career to the point where it has filled her house and left her over $300,000 in debt.”
So it seems, yes, ventriloquism IS a serious problem. Keep reading »
You knew I was going to love this, didn’t you? It has cats, fat cats, a cat that looks like my own increasingly obese polydactyl cat Colonel Mustard, and it makes fun of art. It’s pretty much a recipe for a good time. Here we have the Cattus de Milo (natch). More great works of art, enhanced with fat cats, after the jump. [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »
Take a look at this video from the ’50s of a wedding between two Pekingese dogs. Yes, you heard that right. Two Pekingese dogs getting married, with bridesmaids and wedding guests and everything. Proof that people have been pretty crazy about pets for quite a while. [Hit Dan Back
