Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

You guys, let's be honest with each other. It's a long holiday weekend. We're all pretty much checked out at this point. Even sad news hardly registers. (No offense!) And if you aren't pretty much checked out at this point, I'm not sure what exactly is up with you, but I would highly recommend… More »

This is it, you guys. On Monday, we will know how it all ends. I'm talking, of course, about the final movie in the Shrek saga series finale of Lost. NOW I KNOW HOW TEENAGERS AND MILDLY LONELY MIDDLE-AGED WOMEN MUST FEEL WHEN THE NEW TWILIGHT COMES OUT. Just kidding. It's the series finale of… More »

Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Earlier today, I took the Videogum mascot out on one of her daily parades through the streets. You know, for morale. While we were out there, we met a couple of very young children. One of them was really interested in whether or not Birdie poops outside. When I said that she did, he said,… More »

Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Earlier this week, on a small, unassuming post about a movie trailer, a commenter named nakedpainter posted about contemplating suicide. This turned into a fairly serious thread in which other monsters urged nakedpainter not to hurt herself and to seek help. Needless to say, I, and everyone at Videogum and Stereogum, took this situatio… More »

It is so nice outside right now that you can barely even tell that thousands upon thousands of gallons of oil are pouring into the ocean right now in an incredible environmental catastrophe. HAHA, JUST KIDDING RIGHT? IT'S FRIDAY LET'S HAVE FUN! You guys, I was just kidding about that oil stuff, don't even worry… More »

What a week! This guy knows what I'm talking about. I wonder what Stephen Baldwin has planned for the weekend? Probably going to pop into the tattoo parlor, make a couple more open-ended bargains with teenagers. "Hi, I need a tattoo of Taylor Lautner's face on top of my face. He said if… More »

Spring has sprang you guys! Oh man, I do not know where you are right now (we really need a buddy system), but where I am it is so nice outside. Nice weather of course makes it increasingly difficult to pay attention to Lindsay Lohan's shoe powder malfunctions and breaking news from behind the scene… More »

What a week it has been! Wah-wah-wee-wah, or whatever. (Borat.) This week we learned a lot about writing and loneliness. And someone let the clowns out! But most importantly, we stayed safe.

Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

This week, a monster revolution was fomented on Twitter. Or something? I'm still not entirely clear. Some of you began posting messages of varying degrees of militancy and self-righteous fury, followed by "#VforVgum". It all seemed to come to a head in the comment thread of the Four Lions trailer post for some… More »

SPRIIIIIIIING BREAAAAAAAAAAK! Seriously, where is everyone? Spring Break? Are you on Spring Break? How's Spring Break? Please be careful! Senor Frogs may seem like paradise, but it can also be very dangerous. And I was just kidding about paradise. What a nightmare. This is not a micro-nap! Get out of Senor Frogs! Come home! More »

Anybody else have OSCAR FEVER?! It's hard to sit still, right? I just can't wait to find out once and for all who WORE IT BETTER! What a wonderful night of pageantry and high art. I think my favorite thing about the Oscars is how important they are. It's just a tradition that has never… More »

Duh Aficionado Magazine: The Internet Hates Jay Leno

Over on the NBC hompeage, a message board has been created asking viewers to submit ideas for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Whoops! Needless to say, the Internet has a lot of great ideas! (UPDATE: NBC has taken the page down [clever girl] but you can still see itMore »

Duh Aficionado Magazine: Kevin Smith Needs To Shut Up

It was already pretty clear last week that Kevin Smith needed to shut up. His on-going fight with Southwest Airlines was insufferable. It was bad enough that a millionaire with every means at his disposal to maintain a healthy lifestyle was portraying himself as Joe Everyman because a corporation that deals with millions of… More »

Oh, here is a friendly reminder: both The Ricky Gervais Show and Funny or Die Presents are premiering tonight on HBO. Great news! Both of those shows look great. I could use some laughs. This winter is killing me. Enough, already, winter, I GET IT. You have made your point. Fun fact: the… More »

It's hard to believe it's only been three days since The Jay Leno Show went off the air. What stage of the Kubler-Ross grieving process are we in, does anyone remember? Momentary Relief? I am just kidding. There were no tears shed over that show except for Jay Leno's bullshit liar tears over "being… More »

In the future, when the ultra-light telepathic super-mecha, derived from the core technology of the Cybertronics "Real Boys" line of love children, are sifting through the ice wastes for any remnants of the long extinct human race that once created them, they will determine that this week was the week of Die Antwoord.

About a thousand years ago, I used to do some copywriting for an international corporation that was in the business of selling things to people who lived around the country. During the winter, I would sometimes write things about the cold or the snow on the ground, because they always say that you should write… More »

In a recent interview with NBC executive Jeff Gaspin about the late night wars thing, Gaspin said (basically) that he expected the Conan/Leno fiasco to blow over very quickly once the dust settled in March, and that for as much as people enjoyed and were riled up by explosive feuds, their patience for and memory… More »

As much as I don't like the way that the NBC late night shakeout is shaking out, I will be kind of glad when the dust settles (on Jeff Zucker's grave). It has gotten exhausting to keep up with a thing that I was only mildly interested in to begin with! So, let u… More »
