The Kwanzaa fairy came early this year: there’s a 10-minute-long “Bridesmaids” outtake! It’s packed with the most obscure insults to ever pour forth from Kristen Wiig‘s brain during that scene where she fights with a snotty teenaged girl in the jewelry shop. You could either watch it here … or grab yourself the “Bridesmaids” Blu-ray DVD, on which the bonus scene originally appeared. BTW, “You look like you vacation in America” is totally my new go-to insult. [YouTube via The Hairpin]
Ever wonder how quirky German film director Werner Herzog might interpret your favorite children’s books? Wonder no more! He’s taken it up on himself (okay, okay, not Herzog, but a Herzog-alike) to give pitch-perfect analysis of classics like Winnie the Pooh and A Christmas Carol. Here, “Herzog” explains Where’s Waldo. “At the ski slopes, I find him almost immediately,” he says. “At the sea, I hunt until I am mad.” As you do. [YouTube]
All Jill wants is true love, and she’s willing to pay big to make it happen. Jill, you see, is the owner of Extensions by Jill, a hairstyling salon in New York City’s East Village. And she’s offering her clients a very special deal. If you set her up on a date, she’ll give you 20 percent off her services. If the date goes well, you get another 2o percent off. If she and the guy you set her up with really hit it off — like, wedding bells hit it off — you get free hair services for life. Not a bad plan, and she’s made this video, with very soft Barbara Walters lighting, to prove it.
As Jill explains it, she’s looking for a smart, funny guy who’s the perfect mix between Stephen Colbert and Jeff Goldblum. That shouldn’t be too hard to find, right? So ladies, do we know anybody for Jill? And what’s the craziest deal you’ve ever made to get set up? [Hair For Love]
“Jem and the Holograms” was my favorite television show as a kid. The show tells the story of Jerrica, a rich girl whose dad leaves her a record company when he dies. He also leaves her a pair of earrings that allow her to communicate with Synergy, a holographic computer. Synergy allows Jerrica to create an alter ego, Jem, to front a band to save her father’s record company. Goofy, yes. But I loved the over-the-top ’80s costumes and the fact that the show featured two kick-butt female bands, Jem and the Holograms in addition to The Misfits. So I am totally thrilled that on October 11th, the entire series comes out on DVD. To get you excited, behold. The first 10 minutes of the iconic show. Enjoy.
