Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
So, this morning Simcha professed her hatred for holiday music, sadly, one of my greatest guilty pleasures. But I think I’ve found just the thing to open her eyes to the joys of festive tunes! For some unknown reason, adorably nerdy-hot actor John Krasinski (Jim on “The Office”) stopped by an Aimee Mann show and did a duet with her on “Winter Wonderland.” And, yes, it’s true. Nerdy-hot guys get even nerdier and hotter when they sing…Christmas carols. [Via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
I can’t stand Christmas music. After a weeks worth of shopping I’m already up to my eyeballs in “Silver Bells” and “Feliz Navidad.” Don’t get me wrong, I love buying gifts, but if I hear one more light jazz rendition of “Jingle Bell Rock,” I’m going to lose it. There are plenty of non-Christmas celebrating shoppers out there, slowly being tortured by seasonal elevator music — the Heebs, Muslims, Buddhists, Jehovah Witnesses, Atheists, Taoists….well, you get the point. Still, since it’s our job, if we have the means, to help boost the economy, I would just like to suggest some tracks to the retailers out there, unless they want me to do my holiday shopping at home — where I can blast my own awesome non-denominational music. Now, let’s get in the mood to spend with these hot holiday-free jams that revel in consumerism…
On “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Andy Samberg dropped another hot hit, J**z In My Pants, with his boy band “The Lonely Island.” The group is composed of three comedic cuties: “SNL” writer Jorma Taccone, cast member/comedian Andy Samberg, and a music video director with an even more messed up Hebrew name that me, Akiva Schaffer. Together they’ve made the movie “Hot Rod”, a “Hills”/”OC” spoof called “The ‘Bu,” a bunch of film shorts, music vids, and “Awesometown”, one of three rejected TV pilots. (How could anyone tell these babes no?!) However, the good news is, they are set to release a record entitled Incredibad the second week of February! But we just can’t make you wait that long for all their three-pronged sexy. So check these boys out in an early music video for their track “Ka-Blamo!“ above. And if you want to see Jorma dancing around without clothes then this oughta put a smile on your face. [The Lonely Island] Keep reading »
Last night’s digital short on “Saturday Night Live” was a music video for the song “J**z In My Pants” from Andy Samberg and his “band” The Lonely Island. Molly Sims, Jamie Lynn Sigler and, honorary “SNL” cast member, Justin Timberlake, make appearances too, and it is gross/hilarious/highly groovy. Keep reading »
Britney Spears’ circus-themed video for, uh, “Circus,” the second single of her latest album, is now online. I think it’s hot, but what’s up with the big ol’ product placement shout out to Bulgari at the beginning? Did Brit get to keep those baubles when the video shoot was done?
I’m a die-hard “Nip/Tuck” fan. Those LA plastic surgeons and their plastic patients — they’re all so strange. I love this surreal new promotional spot for the upcoming sixth season, which premieres on FX on January 6, 2009. The forthcoming episodes will include guest star Rose McGowan as plastic surgeon Teddy Lowe, reuniting her with her “Charmed” costar, Julian McMahon. If the promo is any forecast of what the sixth season holds — with its synchronized plasticized ladies dancing around with surgical scalpels and syringes — I’ll be tuning in for sure. Keep reading »
First we heard about mantyhose, then about spanx-like six-pack undershirts, and now…bras for men? A Japanese online shop called Wishroom sold over 300 men’s bras in its first two weeks after launching last month. Like mantyhose and the 6-pack undershirt, these bras seem to be marketed not at cross-dressers or gay men, but at guys as straight as a ruler. “I like this tight feeling,” a guy groping his bra-clad chest happily stated to the interviewer, “It feels good.” (That’s not what she said).
