Have A Great Summer And Stay Sweet, You Guys!

Dear You Guys, So for the past 15 months I've gotten to help plan and launch a totally unique new website, working with a team made up entirely of people who were already my friends on an idea so crazy it just did work. I got to write about almost anything I wanted and share… More »

Which Former Beauty Queen Should Be Videogum’s New Spokeschick?

Have you ever been to one of those websites where a chick pops up and talks to you about how great the site is while you furiously hunt for the X button? Those chicks don't come from nowhere -- it seems they come from the exciting worlds of local news and/or beauty pageants, and they're… More »

Here’s The Gross Thing I Promised: Shark Eats Dead Horse

If you watch it against your better judgment, knowing that it's not something that you want to watch, you'll be super mad at me. So rather than shock anyone, here's a description: some guys were on a fishing trip near Fiji, where the found a floating dead horse that had been recently dumped in the… More »

Um, It’s A Furry In Diaper!

This is the story of two adult human beings who are into BOTH the furry/plushie fetish AND the infantalism/diaper fetish.They need Microsoft Excel 97 just to keep everything straight! This is safe for work, but I rejected it a few weeks ago as being too weird and creepy for this fine upstanding site. So here… More »

Videogum’s 6 Most Misunderstood Animals (So Far!)

In the past year, I've had the sheepish pleasure of becoming somewhat of an expert in the non-lucrative field of cute (and not cute) animal videos, though I really only posted one or two a week. Several times, though, one of our furry friends has appeared here only to be mocked, scorned, teased, and teared… More »

That’s It, I’m Retiring After Today

Lindsay here. As you might have seen in the comments Monday, I'm leaving Videogum, and today is my last day of school. But this isn't my last post, this is just the post where I explain that I'll be completely not following any sort of normal news cycle today (EVEN THOUGH MICHAEL JACKSON TOTALLY… More »

Bill Murray Wins

A local reporter interviewed Bill Murray at the U.S. Open, and Bill Murray just launched into his Carl Spackler character from Caddyshack, seemingly just for the entertainment of the reporter, or out of boredom. It's awesome: (Via The A/V Club.) This is completely in line with all those stories of Bill Murray showing u… More »

How Did I Miss Amy Sedaris Being The Spokesvoice For Supercuts?

I went to re-watch Reza Aslan's Daily Show interview from last night on their site just now (because he's so dreamy!) and was greeted by this pre-roll commercial for Supercuts with a very familiar narrator who is obviously not trying to sound like anyone else but herself. It turns out Amy's been doing these for… More »

The World’s First Actually Funny Song About Facebook

An Australian singer-songwriter named Kate Miller-Heidke, about whom I know only what's on her Wikipedia page, wrote this song about Facebook (and Twitter!) called "R U Fucking Kidding Me?" that is kind of a "Since U Been Gone" for the internet age. It's actually really clever and witty and dare I say, good. It'… More »

That’s Your Girlfriend: This Girl On Acid

It's probably mean to videotape your friend who's lost in her own little brown-acid world of saying "boom boom boom" over and over, but since we never see her face, this makes a nice little anti-psychedelic PSA. Acid and camping do not mix, kids: And if this video ends up getting viral, maybe there ca… More »

The Box Is The Book Of Questions: The Movie

The trailer for the thriller The Box, starring Cameron Diaz and James Marsden came out last night. The premise of The Box is this: a Southern couple with financial problems is approached by a stranger (Frank Langella) bearing a box with a Staples easy button in it. He tells them that if they push the… More »

We Need To Talk About Gooby

So have you guys seen the trailer for this apparently-real weird independent children's movie, Gooby? About little boy's teddy-bear come to creepy life? I know I'm really late on this one -- FOUR tipsters sent it in going back to April, but for some reason I thought it was animated and I hate animated… More »

Is This What All 50 Cent Videos Are Like?

Someone just sent me this apparently new video (for some reason) and I was watching it and realized that I've never seen a 50 Cent video in my life. Is this what they're all like? 50 Cent mumble-syncs while barely conscious as women with very nice butts dance around him and people pour money o… More »

America Begged For More Jenna Elfman, And This Is What America Is Getting

Here's a sneak peek at Jenna Elfman's fall CBS comedy, Accidentally On Purpose, in which she plays a cougar who gets pregnant from her one-night-stand with a really young guy, and the tension comes from the two of them being thrown together as future parents to the kid, because that would totally happen in real… More »

Tommy Wiseau Tells All To The Onion’s A/V Club

There is this outstanding, revealing interview by Steve Heisler on the A/V Club today with The Room director Tommy Wiseau. It's long, but totally worth it -- everyone who has seen The Room should read it (at least three times). There are too many quotable quotes to possibly namecheck them all, but here are… More »

Glenn Beck Plays With Transgendered Barbies

Glenn Beck was on The O'Reilly Factor last night complaining about whatever, and he illustrated some point about ACORN with a Barbie dream house ripoff and a bunch of generic Barbie-type dolls. Glenn Beck plays with Barbies like a little girl!: I guess, technically, since Glenn Beck is in on, and in fact, made the… More »

Really Behind The Scenes Of The New Paul Rudd/Reese Witherspoon Movie

From the ol' Paul Rudd Google Alert: someone took illicit video of Paul Rudd and Reese Witherspoon shooting a scene for their upcoming romantic dramedy currently titled "The Untitled James L. Brooks Project" in the Adams Morgan neighborhood in D.C. Nothing really happens in it, but that's what makes it fascinating (at least to… More »

Crazy Bunny Ladies Are The New Crazy Cat Ladies

There's another bunny hoarder! This one is in New Mexico, and as her special local news report segment makes clear, she's actually kind of a sheepish, embarrassed *accidental* bunny-hoarder. And this one is less sad than the last one, as as far as we know, no bunnies died in the process of this lady'… More »

The Daily Show Discovers Americans Are Stupider Than Iranians

Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones taped a bunch of segments in Iran before the election called Jason Jones: Behind The Veil, and for a while last week they were kind of awkward because of all the stuff, but last night's was really funny and revealing. In a segment called "Jihad Walking," Jason tested the knowledge… More »
