This performance of “Hallelujah” is sheer brilliance. I’d love to see them do it again next year with a slightly bigger group to get some of the other lyrics in as well. (via twitter friend @sav01) UPDATE: This appears to be the original performance of that work. I like the high-schooler’s version. It had more […]

Geekpocalypse Now: MST3K is on Hulu!

Hulu is loading up episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which pretty much means that your favorite introverted, comedy-loving geek has yet another reason to stay inside and on the computer.

I’ve decided that someone out there needs to invent the Mohawk Grenade for real. What’s a Mohawk Grenade? I’m glad you asked. Behold! Tell me you didn’t immediately think of five people you’d target tomorrow if only you had a handful of those babies. By the way, I still love Mr. T.

How dominant is Fox News these days? That’s a rhetorical question, really. Fox News owns the cable news market like Brett Favre owns the hearts of every announced on ESPN, and no other network is even close. Heck, no two networks can touch the ratings Rupert Murdoch’s baby is pulling down. Here’s an example of […]

Was there ever a better live music show on television than Bert Sugarman’s The Midnight Special? I think not. It’s too bad that NBC decided to axe the show just because Dick Ebersol wanted to clear the way for the clearly inferior Saturday Night Live. Ebersol dipped into the music genre again with Friday Night […]

Those of you who have read The Shack for a little while know that I don’t often to out to movies. There’s something inside me, perhaps stingy Puritanical blood, that hesitates to spend ten bucks and three hours of my life on a movie I may not like. However, I can be lured by tasty […]

If you’re raising a daughter these days and you haven’t taken a baseball bat to someone or something today, I commend you for your heroic restraint. If toy marketers aren’t trying to teach your daughter how to be a stripper, then it’s clothing makers trying to put her on the pole. Of course, there’s the […]

Dear Movie Reviewers, This is what a good movie review looks like (content warning: spoilers, bad language, and mental images of Michael Bay naked). Note how the reviewer smiles through the pain in a vain attempt to convince us all that he isn’t the least bit resentful that he paid twenty bucks for the theatrical […]

David Letterman’s Biggest Problem is Named Cynthia

| June 22, 2009 | 2 Replies

Cynthia Yockey wants a chunk of David Letterman’s hide and, by goodness, I think she’s going to get it. If you’re one of the folks who didn’t accept Letterman’s feeble and incompetent apology, you’ll definitely want to join Cynthia in putting even more pressure on the companies with ads on his show. I’ve already had […]
