Music’s 10 Most Scandalous Live-TV Moments

When M.I.A. held up her middle finger during Madonna's Super Bowl Halftime Show last weekend, she dominated blog chatter for a few days and incited a few minor cable-TV debates.

The Austin Powers Musical Is Getting Real

We talked a tiny bit about the Austin Powers musical yesterday, and tossed around the idea of me and Gabe trying out for Mini Me and Dr. Evil, and we all decided that that was a great idea, and Gabe was like, "Count me in." And I was like, "Already counted you in." But… More »

The Videogum Movie Club: Inglourious Basterds

Let me just say, first and foremost, that I was wrong. I often am! I did not love Inglourious Basterds. I didn't even really like it very much. But it was not the disastrous, self-indulgent, World War Grindhouse shitshow that I had anticipated. It was decent, actually! There were parts of it that were very… More »

Inglourious Basterds Snacke Proview

Because Quentin Tarantino was a "mentor" to the contestants on American Idol last night, whatever that means, some new footage from his upcoming Inglourious Basterds aired. Sure. Of course new Inglourious Basterds footage aired during what is basically a children's show, because that is the perfect time to advertise a gory exploitatio… More »

Trying To Defend Inglourious Basterds Is Ridoucuolouus

Just to follow up on yesterday's post about the Inglourious Basterds trailer, which obviously is just a trailer and therefore not evidence enough for anything like a review of the film but is certainly, despite many Tarantino-apologists' claims, sufficient for a declaration of whether or not a film looks good (or, as in the… More »

Stephen Colbert And Jim Gaffigan’s Outtakes From The Love Guru

People who saw The Love Guru, whoever and wherever they are, said that the only funny parts were the scenes between Stephen Colbert and Jim Gaffigan, who played competing hockey announcers, one of whom (Stephen) is on peyote.

Deepak Chopra Finally Breaks His Silence On The Love Guru

Deepak Chopra, the Indian spiritual icon and successful self-help author has finally broken his long silence on his BFF Mike Myers's racist disaster The Love Guru.

Mike Myers Names Some Famous People Who Think He’s Funny

With The Love Guru opening Friday with much of Mike Myers's clout on the line, EW asks whether the comedian is still relevant. Included are some re-hashed stories about how difficult Myers is to work with, possibly because of his genius or his hypoglycemia.

Russell Crowe May Have Explosive Diarrhea, But Mike Myers IS Explosive Diarrhea

I don't get what Mike Myers's problem is. Is he in a competition with Jerry Seinfeld to see who can lose the most good will the quickest? Granted, Jerry Seinfeld is CRUSHING IT on that one. Bee Movie. Never Forget. But still, The Love Guru? No, David Blaine. And he's clearly going to nail… More »

If Stephen Colbert Is In The Love Guru, Do We Still Have To Hate It?

The very best Stephen Colbert fan site, No Fact Zone, would be the ones to notice that Stephen plays a sports announcer (along with comedian Jim Gaffigan) in the probably not good catchphrase vehicle The Love Guru, as seen in this promo for the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs: No Fact Zone notes that the… More »

The Love Guru Catchphrases You’ll Soon Be Sick Of

There are now two annoying trailers for The Love Guru, which means it's time to predict catchphrases. (Yes, that's what that means.) Avoid the embarrassment of hearing a six year old in line at Target say "He looks like he's smuggling a Schnauzah!" and not understanding why. If the Austin Powers franchise taught… More »

Casting Couch: Keith Moon

Golden Fiddle links to some casting news about an upcoming Keith Moon biopic. Apparently comedian Mike Myers has signed on to play the wild Who drummer. Pete Townshend has yet to complain about it on his blog, so that's a good sign, but I'm not convinced Myer… More »
