Win Signed 30 Rock Stuff, Hear Two New Songs From The Soundtrack

30 Rock is usually Videogum’s beat, except when someone like RAC (whom we know well) remixes Tracy Morgan and Donald Glover’s “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah.” Which is what happened, and what we have here. The track comes as a bonus commemoration of the show’s official soundtrack, a two-disc release featuring the show’s supplemental score along with… More »

Simon Replaces Garfunkel With Tracy Morgan, Preps His “Best Since Graceland

The trio appeared together on yesterday’s Night of Too Many Stars benefit on Comedy Central to help raise funds for autism research.

Barack Obama Is Barack Obama-sistible!

Detroit Octane, aka writer, actor, and Adult Swim-er Jon Glaser and friends, have penned a ridiculously catchy (and just ridiculous) campaign tune for Barack Obama (he’s the new black).

Werewolf Bar Mitzvah

Gotta love Tracy Morgan, right?
