Knowledge Is Power, For Real!

Back in 1999, Ben Stiller got together his pals Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Ron Silver (playing himself!) to make a failed pilot called “Heat Vision and Jack.” Black plays a renegade astronaut, whose catchphrase is “knowledge is power, for real” and Wilson plays his friend who was accidentally turned into his motorcycle. Ron Silver is the guy out to get both of them. It’s … terrible, but in a totally hilarious way, and I end up watching it at least once a year because it’s so ridiculous. Enjoy! [YouTube]

Stephen Malkmus Takes Down A “Senator”

Watch Video

Next to my own personal ’90s rock God Evan Dando, Stephen Malkmus of Pavement comes a close second. “Senator,” the new video from Malkmus and his band The Jicks, features Jack Black as corrupt Senator Danner, up for re-election, but equally pulled toward a steady diet of cocaine and cattle prods (aren’t we all?). The video also stars “Office Space” boss guy Gary Cole, and a cameo by my friend Todd (BRAGGING) as the curly-haired campaign manager. [YouTube]

Visit Model And Chanteuse Karen Elson’s Vintage Shop

Racked takes readers on a nifty pictorial tour through model, singer, and wife-of-Jack Black Karen Elson’s vintage shop in Nashville, Tennessee, Venus and Mars. The store, which is located in a house, is filled with a cornucopia of eclectic old school items, from cheetah clutches to men’s suspenders, day-glo jumpers to thrift store art, summer hats to gold pumps. The showroom, which opened in 2008, is the brainchild of Elson and Amy Patterson. “The aim of the store is to encourage shoppers to think that vintage isn’t just an old hand-me-down,” Elson explains, “but a one-of-a-kind garment with a wonderful story.” You don’t have to make the trek to Nashville to shop there, though; they’ve got a Venus and Mars storefront on Etsy.

Howl At The Moon!

We all had one. A kid in our junior high school class who wore a wolf T-shirt, I mean. That kid was ahead of the curve, as the wolf T is suddenly oh-so ironically in. The craze started when a T-shirt, with three wolves illustrated on it, went up for sale on Amazon and inspired fake review after fake review of how much customers enjoyed their purchase. Suddenly, the wolf T because the site’s number one best selling item in the apparel section. Here’s a sampling of the reviews that helped make it a best seller:

“I have been wearing this shirt for about 15 weeks and I have not needed to wash it! You don’t put this shirt on your torso you put it on your soul. The day I bought this shirt I lost 300 lbs!” —B.Prince

The Five Funniest Oscar Moments

The movie business holds the Academy Awards in such high regard it can make or break a distribution deal. Luckily, actors don’t (always) take themselves so seriously. Aside from the over-the-top gushing that came when past winners introduced the nominees for the acting awards, there were plenty of LOL moments from last night’s Oscars (not including the moment when the camera caught Angelina Jolie laughing at Jennifer Aniston['s joke], above). From Styx lyrics in speeches to Steve Martin’s ego mania, here are our five favorite funnies…

Prop 8: The Musical

The passing of Prop 8, the California bill banning gay marriage, has been causing marches, rallies, debates, and now it’s even spawned a musical! With an all-star line up including John C. Reilly, Neil Patrick Harris, Kathy Najimy, Rashida Jones, Maya Rudolph, Margaret Cho, Andy Richter, and Jack Black as Jesus, here’s hoping jazz hands can stop the hate. Even if you aren’t famous and you can’t sing and dance, your voice still needs to be heard, so if you want to do your part, Join The Impact. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Monday Menage: Tropic Thunder

The tag line for the Vietnam War movie spoof Tropic Thunder is “Get Some.” That’s exactly what we want to do with the stars: stud Ben Stiller, juicy Jack Black, and dreamy Robert Downey Jr. It’s easy to see why it opened at number one at the box office. Even out of character, we’re sure this threesome would still make us giggle! To be fair, the whole of Tropic Thunder is raining men — the entire cast is male with bonus babes Matthew McConaughey, Tom Cruise, Steve Coogan, Brandon T. Jackson, and Monday Ménage alum Danny McBride. It’s a big screen flick filled with sweaty, beefy, funny dudes, slinging guns, and running around Hawaii in hot army duds. Clearly, our kind of movie.
