The Dock Street Brewing Company in Philadelphia is churning out a special “Walking Dead”-themed beer. In fact, it’s so authentic to the series that it has real brains in it. Roasted goat brains, in fact. Keep reading »
Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen? [Laughing Squid]
It’s about time Bob Dylan released a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” which only came out, oh, nigh 50 years ago. Is it possible that he could have been working on this very thing for the past 48 years? Possible, sure, but not likely. The interactive video, which I imagine is the first of its kind, allows viewers to use their keyboards or cursors to scroll through numerous channels, each of which mimics a TV format and features a different TV personality lip-syncing the lyrics to you. Mesmerizing! Even more channels will eventually be added to the video, said Yoni Bloch, the CEO of digital agency Interlude (who created the project), noting, “you’ll always miss something because you can’t watch everything at the same time.” [via Mashable]
Never before has “MasterChef” had a proper villain like Krissi Biasiello, the single mom from Philly who admits to “having some evilness goin’ on inside.” While we don’t laud her racist tweets, we do appreciate a cooking show contestant who can fry up a batch of calamari while wearing door knocker earrings and shit-talking her competition, despite her crippling fear of heights. Krissi, we pay tribute to your unkind words (spoken with the thickest Philly accent we’ve ever heard) and the Krissi-missile, your delicious scalloped potato flowers (“pommes du Krissi”).

We need to talk about the upcoming TLC documentary, “Half-Ton Killer.” If you’ve seen TLC’s other “Half-Ton” docs (“Half-Ton Mom,” “Half-Ton Teen,” etc.), this is a different beast. Yes, Mayra Rosales does weigh a half-ton. Actually she weighs 1,100 pounds and is considered one of the heaviest women in the world. But this is not about Mayra’s struggle to lose weight.

The trailer for the biggest television event in Lifetime’s history is here. Infamous, scandalous, dangerous. They drink, they fight, they fornicate. Love affairs, diamonds, paparazzi. Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. That pretty much sums up the “Liz & Dick” trailer. Is it almost November? [MTV]
I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-”Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode, the theme of which, I’ve decided, was FACE. Everyone was giving it. Mostly not on purpose. There was also plenty of farting and snot. Obviously. Some of my favorite moments after the jump. Keep reading »
I’ll admit, I didn’t watch VH1′s first season of “Couples Therapy” but I will be watching this season, which premieres October 3rd, as Dr. Jenn Berman and a team of shrinks try to help celebrity couples with their marital issues. The D-list cast includes Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson (and possibly their new pup Dourtney?), former “Real Housewives Of New York City” cast members Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, reality star Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie and more. I’m dying to get inside those marriages. Just dying. Actually, I’m most excited for Alex and Simon. They’re relationship has been making me twitch for years. Bathing suits, fights and lots of crying! Yessss! This looks the kind of trashy TV I can’t resist. [ONTD]
In my mind, I am Ryan Lochte’s manager. Please, humor me. And no, I have no comments on his alleged penis pics at this time. Let’s stick to Ryan’s career. Even though I’m not getting 20 percent, I’ve taken a very keen interest in Ryan’s career path. I do it for the love of the craft. I made some suggestions for Ryan, role-wise, after his appearance on “90210″, but he chose to ignore me. That’s fine. What matters most is that I want to support Ryan in going after whatever makes him happy. Even if that means appearing on a bad reality show. I am pleased to announce that Ryan has booked some choice television gigs this week.
You’ll be happy to know that this morning he reported to the “30 Rock” set where he was put on camera (said like Jenna) for a cameo. Then, he was off to E!, where he has accepted a position as a correspondent for New York Fashion Week. I know, I was surprised too! Finally, our favorite talented Olympian finished off his day at “Live With Kelly.” Jeah! Just … jeah. Keep reading »
