MadTV Predicted The iPad Years Ago


You know how everyone has been going period-joke crazy since the announcement of the iPad, Apple’s new gadget? Well MadTV, that now-defunct “Saturday Night Live”-esque sketch comedy show, essentially predicted it in a skit a few years ago. Their “iPad” is a menstruation aid that links up to your computer, which frankly sounds more interesting and useful than this thing Apple has invented. Keep reading »

Jon Hamm Does Sexy Sax Man Sergio & Senator Scott Brown On SNL


Jon Hamm hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend — for no real reason other than his undeniable hotness, seeing as he doesn’t have a movie to promote and “Mad Men” is on hiatus — and the results were delightfully … weird. In the digital short, above, Hamm plays a sexy saxophonist named Sergio who emerges during the most inopportune moments after a curse is placed on Andy Samberg’s character. For the record, Jon Hamm Covered In Birth Goop is still as sexy as Jon Hamm NOT Covered In Birth Goop. Keep reading »

Should Prince And Paris Jackson Have Spoken At The Grammys?


Can we talk for a minute about Michael Jackson’s kids, Prince and Paris Jackson, accepting the lifetime achievement award on behalf of their father at the Grammys last night? First, they’re gorgeous kids who seem healthy and well-adjusted and it’s heartening to see them no longer hiding behind veils like they did when their dad was alive. But just because they aren’t hiding anymore, I’m not sure it’s the best idea to parade them in front of millions and millions of viewers only months after they lost their father. Speaking on a stage like that is hard enough for a seasoned professional, but these are young kids who aren’t experienced performers. Poor Paris could barely get the words out, and what she said didn’t really make any sense. Can you imagine the mix of nerves and grief in a situation like that? I don’t know … maybe there’s an argument that accepting the award and publicly expressing the love they have for their father is therapeutic. I just hope they have people who are more concerned with their emotional well-being than turning them into public figures in Michael’s memory. What are your thoughts? [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Edge of Darkness,” “When In Rome,” “Saint John Of Las Vegas”

TGIF! It’s what you’ve been toiling all week for—the weekend! And you can do whatever you want. Drive to Mexico, learn French, floss for once—the world is your oyster. And of course, there is always the movies. If you had a rough week and need to get out some aggression, you might want to watch Mel Gibson beat up some shady folks in “Edge of Darkness.” If you’re totally sick of all the dead-beat dudes in your life, pretend that you believe in magic and catch Kristen Bell in “When in Rome.” And if you’re just in a mood to run away to Vegas, catch Steve Buscemi in “Saint John of Las Vegas.” Keep reading »

Why You Won’t See This Commercial During The Super Bowl


Super Bowl Sunday is nine days away, and we’ve already told you about the anti-abortion Focus on the Family ad you can expect to see if you tune in, rather than heading to Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl. But what about the ads you won’t see? A gay dating site called ManCrunch.com wanted to air the commercial above during the football megacast, but was told by CBS that space is full. “It’s clearly a form of discrimination that we’re getting the runaround, that we’re not being told the truth,” he said. “Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available.” CBS also allegedly flat-out nixed an ad from a site called GoDaddy.com.

Say It Ain’t So: Noah Cyrus Designs Children’s Lingerie Collection?


Celebuzz is reporting that 9-year-old Noah Cyrus is launching a children’s “lingerie” collection called Ooh! La, La! Couture. We wouldn’t hold it past the girl who did a so-wrong rendition of “Smack That” to make such a move, but it seemed slightly unlikely to us. So, here’s what we gather—the designs aren’t so much lingerie as they are slutty dress-up clothes, and in fact appear falsely credited to Noah. The range of leopard tutus is actually inspired by Noah’s BFF, Disney star Emily Grace. (Seems Noah is along for the ride to help promotion.) Keep reading »

I Need A Man With A Big Tank

In this, um, very creative recruitment video for the Austrian army, prospective soldiers learn about the perks of enlistment: If you thought a hot sports car got you a lot of chicks, wait until you see what happens when you show up in a tank, man. You will have to swat the broads away with a stick! I know that if I saw a guy driving a tank down the middle of my street, the first thing I’d do would be to run after it and try and get my hands on the big-gun operator trapped inside. I mean, wouldn’t you? Apparently, the video isn’t an original. It looks as if it was ripped off one that the Ukranian armed forces did first. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »

Johnny Weir Takes ESPN Reporter For A Mani/Pedi


ESPN’s Jim Caple gets introduced to a whole new world when he meets up with Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir for a manicure, pedicure, some paraffin wax and a little sex talk. (Johnny: “I don’t have sex. I don’t have time anyway—man, woman, tree.”) And the hat! Close-ups of gnarly man-toes (belonging to Caple)! The man, woman, tree multiple mentions! It’s everything you want it to be—and more. [You Tube] Keep reading »

“God Hates Gaga”: The Music Video!


The Westboro Baptist Church has taken their “God Hates Gaga” campaign to the land of music videos with their version of “Poker Face.” Apparently, God also hates decent graphics and any semblance of good production value? Keep reading »

An Ode To Zelda Rubinstein

Actress Zelda Rubinstein passed away yesterday at the age of 76 of natural causes. Zelda may be most well-known as Tangina in “Poltergeist,” but as far as I’m concerned, her finest work was in a little-known film called “Teen Witch” that I was obsessed with back in the day. If you had cable in the late ’80s, there’s no way you missed Zelda as the witch, Madame Serena, in this classic musical. I have one word for you: Netflix. Get back to me after you’ve seen it and we can have a “Top That!” sing-a-long. Zelda may have been small, but she had some huge acting chops. After the jump, some more of Zelda’s performances you might have missed. [PopEater] Keep reading »
