Watch Girl Band Hand Job Academy Rap About “Owning Your Period” In Their Song “Shark Week”

Watch Girl Band Hand Job Academy Rap About "Owning Your Period" In Their Song "Shark Week"
Feels Like A Werewolf Is In My Uterus

I’m not sure why, but songs about menses are few and far between. I mean, for a good chunk of our lives, women bleed on a monthly basis — why aren’t more female musicians inspired to write music about their moon cycles? Well, the hilarious and raunchy-mouthed women of rap comedy band Hand Job Academy know wassup and throw down some pretty sweet menstrual rhymes on their song “Shark Week.” But don’t be mistaken — this song is not just about having your period, it’s about “owning your period,” they told NYMag.com’s The Cut. Strap on your red wings and press play! [NYMag.com]

Zac Efron Gets Naked, Straps On A Dildo For “That Awkward Moment” Trailer (NSFW)

Watch The Trailer!

“That Awkward Moment” — does a more cringeworthy name for an otherwise redeemable movie exist? (What’s that? The original title was “Are We Officially Dating?” Oh, okay, never mind then.) At first glance, it seems like little more than your standard terrible “bros party and get with hot chicks” fare, but I don’t know! This trailer is kind of charming, and it’s definitely no “Superbad.” Actually, I’m pretty sure this is a movie about guys havin’ feelings, which is weird.

Zac Efron stars as a casual dude living with his two male friends (played by Miles Teller and the always excellent Michael B. Jordan) as they all struggle to stay single. Yes, they are struggling with this. The title, I gather, is taken from “that awkward moment” in every “dating relationship” where you have to decide where it’s all going. That moment, to me, is less awkward and more like “that dry-heaving moment.” I’m gagging just thinking about it. But if all you’re looking for is some hit-it-and-quit-it visual man candy this morning, well, we’ve got Zac naked laying horizontally across a toilet for you. He later straps on a fake dick for what he thinks is a costume party. (It isn’t.) Will see! [Gossip Cop]

This Drunken Ronald McDonald Clip Was Too Much For Adult Swim

This Drunken Ronald McDonald Clip Was Too Much For Adult Swim
The Boss Is Here!

Adult Swim, the deranged nocturnal twin of Cartoon Network, is a pleasant, hilarious reprieve from the mostly squeaky-clean nature of cable TV. The Wikipedia page cites “minimal or no editing for content,” which sounds about right: there are precious few things that are deemed too risqué or outlandish for the nightly programming. One of these things, apparently, is this clip from “The Eric André Show” of Andre as a drunken Ronald McDonald hitting up his local McDonald’s, which the network refused to air. Granted, the rejection was based not off content or legality but concern for the future of Cartoon Network’s ad sales (they have a deal with the fast food chain for Happy Meal toys) should the footage be okayed. Andre appeared on “Conan” last night and brought the scrapped video along with him, which of course Conan had no problem airing himself … [via Huffington Post]

Kenan Thompson Says There Are No Black Women On “Saturday Night Live” Because There Aren’t Enough Funny Black Women

Kenan Thompson Says There Are No Black Women On "Saturday Night Live" Because There Aren't Enough Funny Black Women

I like Kenan Thompson a lot. He’s probably my favorite actor on “Saturday Night Live” right now. But what the heck was he thinking when he spoke to TV Guide about diversity on “SNL”? The show hasn’t had a Black woman on the cast for six years, despite having numerous other performers of color, including Thompson, Jay Pharoah (who is Black), and Nasim Pedrad (who is both Iranian and a woman).  Yet when asked why “SNL” hasn’t cast a Black woman, Thompson suggested that there just aren’t enough funny Black ladies:

“It’s just a tough part of the business. Like in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready.”

Ummm.

Fox Picks Up John Mulaney Sitcom: Get To Know The Comedian And “Saturday Night Live” Writer

John Mulaney

I like to think that Louis C.K. set the scene for other stand-up comedians to take over our televisions, one sitcom at a time: his uniquely-formatted single-camera show, “Louie,” is one of the best, most interesting things in entertainment right now, and is as ground-breaking today as it was when it first aired in 2010. But on the more traditional end, stand-up comedian and “SNL” writer John Mulaney’s eponymous series, “Mulaney,” has just been picked up for a full series run by Fox after being developed — and then dropped by — NBC. Said Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly of the venture, “John is one of the sharpest and most skilled next-generation comedic voices out there, who also happens to be surrounded by the best of the best on this new show.”

The comedy, which will be executive-produced by “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels (this bodes well!) and directed and written by Mulaney himself, stars his character as an “aspiring comedian who comes of age under the influence of his boss (Martin Short), his roommates, and his neighbors.” This news is exciting for a few reasons — firstly, John Mulaney is HILARIOUS. He’s also young (31) and adorable, which will make him a welcome addition to any TV lineup. But I’ll stop objectifying him for a second and move on to the more important things. Read on for more on John Mulaney, and check out some clips from his stand-up and interviews … Keep reading »

Ask A Grown Woman

Why couldn’t Rookie have existed when I was a teenager? All of us screwed up 20- and 30-somethings would have had a better chance at life if we could have asked Tig Notaro for life advice. Here she is doing a segment of “Ask A Grown Woman,” sharing self-confidence tips in regards to her recent mastectomy and her philosophy that what’s most attractive to people is when you own who you really are. (True, by the way.) It gets pretty heavy at the end when she answers a question from a girl who just lost her mother — Tig’s own mother died suddenly recently — but it’s exactly what most of us need to hear. Listen and learn, girls of all ages. [Rookie]
