TV Party: Saint Pepsi Talks Eagleheart

I recently had the pleasure of talking with young genius Saint Pepsi (also known as Ryan DeRobertis) -- a man whose summer hit was a love letter to a Degrassi character -- about Adult Swim's weirdo action-comedy series Eagleheart. He loves Eagleheart very much, and thinks you will, too. More »

TV Party: The Juan Maclean Talk Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad ended its five-season run almost exactly one year ago, on September 29, 2013, forcing us to say goodbye to our favorite meth manufacturers, and to say goodbye to feeling so stressed out pretty much all the time about whether or not Jesse was going to die. The series is still missed by many,… More »

TV Party: Wampire Talk The Leftovers

The Leftovers, an excessively dark series that follows the lives of those left on Earth after an unexplained, Rapture-like event, just completed its first season on HBO. I chatted with the guys from Wampire about the first season, why hopelessness and unanswered questions can be so appealing, and what they hope to see i… More »

TV Party: Mutual Benefit Talks Fullmetal Alchemist

Have you ever watched Fullmetal Alchemist? I haven't! Luckily, I had Jordan Lee -- the mind behind the beautiful chamber-folk band Mutual Benefit -- to tell me all about the series, and his experience watching it with his little brother. (It's sort of like Disney's Life-Size, with Lindsay Lohan and Tyra Banks? Except anime,… More »

TV Party: The Unicorns Talk I’m Alan Partridge

How old were you when the Unicorns broke up? It was ten years ago, so it would be your age minus ten. Oh my god. Were you even born yet? If you're taking your age and subtracting ten and getting a number below zero, it's unlikely that you were even alive during the period of… More »

TV Party: Strand Of Oaks Talks Frasier

There comes a time in every new adult's life when he or she has to sit down, chill out, and watch a bunch of episodes of Frasier -- previously known to them merely as a show their parents watched -- and begin to understand that, hey, actually, this show is pretty good! I recently had… More »

Inside Spoon’s Creepy Secret Show At NYC’s McKittrick Hotel

The McKittrick Hotel is full of surprises. The last time I visited, for a performance of the hotel's mainstay Sleep No More, a woman in a nurse's uniform kidnapped me, put me in a wheelchair, and wheeled me into a creepy, dark room to watch a bizarre projection on the ceiling. Last night, for the… More »

TV Party: Perfect Pussy Talk Adventure Time

"Perfect Pussy Time / Come on, grab your friends / We'll go to Per-fect Pussy lands." I recently had the chance to talk to Ray McAndrew of the Syracuse punk band Perfect Pussy about Cartoon Network's punk cartoon Adventure Time. We barely scratched the surface of the incredible, magical, multi-layered animated series -- which just… More »

TV Party: Cymbals Eat Guitars Talk The Real Housewives Of New York City

Cymbals Eat Guitars is a frenetic, emotional, catchy, wildly great band from New York City. The Real Housewives Of New York City is a frenetic, emotional, catchy, wildly -- well, ah -- wild reality show from New York City (and the mind of Bravo's Andy Cohen). It's enough to make you think, "Man, can thi… More »

TV Party: First Aid Kit Talk Friends

Swedish sibling two-piece First Aid Kit are known for their beautiful interpretation of rootsy American folk, so it only makes sense that they would choose Friends as their favorite TV show: a beautiful interpretation of the rootsy American sitcom. I spoke to Klara, one half of the Kit, about Chandler, Monica, Ross -- heck, the… More »

TV Party: Best Coast Talk Seinfeld

The subway advertisements have caught your attention. You've noticed it listed over and over again on your digital cable box guide. You've seen the DVDs both in houses and left on stoops, just in case anyone wants to take them. Of course, you saw the Super Bowl thing. Now it's time… More »

TV Party: Shabazz Palaces Talk Game Of Thrones

Game Of Thrones. What is it? A board game? A reality show? You never hear anyone talking about it, and you for sure never see multiple people in the same subway car reading the books. Has anyone ever tweeted about an episode, even once? Hard to say! This HBO show has so far flown completely… More »

TV Party: Chromeo Talk Diners, Drive-Ins, And Dives

Guy Fieri has had his share of bad press. He's been accused by a former producer of, well, not being such a great guy. Pete Wells, restaurant critic for the New York Times asked, after dining at his Times Square restaurant, "When you cruise around the country for your show Diners,More »

TV Party: Kitty Talks The Office

The Office may have concluded its nine-season run in 2013, but the series is still very much alive for rapper, singer, writer, and Office MEGA fan Kitty. (The series is also still very much alive for anyone with Netflix, a beating heart in their cold chest, and a love 2 laugh.) I recently chatted with… More »

Think of it as part TV recap, part interview, part transcript of someone else'sMore »

Heaven Just Got A Little More Videogum

Here we are. There was no reason to think that Videogum would be around, the way that it has been for the past six years, forever. It is a blog on the Internet, which already puts it in a precarious position, and it is a blog that has done its very best to not be… More »

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Series Finale Open Thread

Gosh, who would have ever thought Jay Leno would spend the last half hour of his final episode of The Tonight Show lying on his desk in the dark? And requesting for Kevin Eubanks to come hold his hand, only to find out that Kevin Eubanks was actually on tour in France? EEEEEK! Very awkward! More »
