The Lonely Island Movie Is A Boy Band Reunion Satire

Psychic Friend – “We Do Not Belong” Video (Feat. Sarah Silverman)

The Dean Fleischer-Camp-directed music video for “We Do Not Belong” by Will Shwartz’s new group Psychic Friend stars Sarah Silverman, which might be why most people should watch it twice. There’s an expectation with Silverman being credited in a video that it’ll be funny or offensive or offensively funny. So it might take a little… More »

Some Strokes, Black Keys, Johnny Depp, Ke$ha & More Pay Tribute To Tom Petty @ El Rey, Los Angeles 11/14/12

“This is a lot of Alpha energy to wrangle,” Guster’s Ryan Miller said in testament to Alex Levy and the Cabin Down Below Band’s work last night. “This is a hard thing to organize.” And that’s probably true of most every tribute concert of this nature, as it has probably been true of the decade… More »

Sarah Silverman’s Sad Playlist

Her descriptions this time are much more entertaining than last (on “Sentimental Heart“: “it’s heartbreaking and we used it in a show in a story line where my sister Laura is kind of pressured to shave her extremely abundant pubes”), but don’t worry too much about her emotional state: looks like Sarah’s getting happy again.

New Sarah Silverman Video – “I’m Fucking Matt Damon”

You know how Kimmel’s always apologizing for running out of time on Matt Damon? Will Hunting’s getting even. Sarah wrote a song about it. It’s funnier than you think it’s gonna be.

Sarah Silverman’s Celebrity Playlist Establishes That, In At Least One Respect, She Has Little To Say

It’s not so much that she likes the Killers (if they’re good enough for Lou Reed…), but the supplemental commentary borders on a Jennifer Garner level of duh. To wit:“In The Winter” – Janis Ian
“I love super dramatic songs. I love heartbreak.”

“The Last Time I Saw Richard” – Joni Mitchell
“Thi… More »

Sarah Silverman + Green Day = Abortion Montage

When it comes to Sarah, occasionally we’ll hear friends say stuff like “Someone forgot to tell her she should try to be funny while being so mean.” Yeah, her monologue to open the VMAs sorta sucked the air out of the room with its laughlessness, but SS did deliver the highly quotable Britney line “She… More »

That Was The Best Christmas Song Ever!

‘Tis the season to say “’tis the season” too much. ‘Tis also the season to reflect on the year that was, eat too much, see family, and get nostalgic with your favorite holiday tunes.

What’s On Your iPod Funny Guy?

I’m as much of a comedy dork as I am a music dork. So every year at Bonnaroo I stop by the comedy tent. It’s air-conditioned. Some of my favorite comedians will be there this year, so I asked a few of them to put their iPods on shuffle and tell us about the first… More »

Mr. Show’s Greatest Fake Bands

From the “no shit!” tag cloud comes this post about how musicians love HBO’s classic Mr. Show. If I was stuck on a tour bus for months, there’s nothing I’d rather rewatch.

Truth be told, Stereogum will take any opportunity to throw some love at Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and their now star-studded (Jack… More »

Entertainment Weekly’s 25 Funniest People In America

The only American magazine that loves making lists more than the exciteable British press is Entertainment Weekly. I’m gonna spotlight some of the choices I agree with, but refrain from suggesting the ten or fifteen more deserving candidates that come to my mind when someone says “America’s funniest people.” Actually, scratch that … the phrase… More »
