Two of our favorite girls, Ilana and Abbi, have the thumbs up to make a second season of Broad City according to AV Club. I shouldn’t have to tell you that Broad City is one of the best shows on TV, never mind Comedy Central. I couldn’t be more excited to hear that we will be #blessed with more episodes. Congrats BBs!
I’m not fat, I’m big boned.
Set your DVR’s. Lena Dunham will be hosting Saturday Night Live with musical guest The National on March 8th. Oddly enough, it will also be The National’s first time on SNL too. I think this deserves a hipster jew shehecheyanu blessing.
Mila Kunis is the new face of Jim Beam. What does that mean? Well it all depends on your feelings for Jim Beam. For me, it will always be part of the Philly special. $3 for a shot of Jim Beam and a PBR. Each one’s bad taste counteracts each other and becomes something tolerable. Soon enough you’re drunk, crying on the floor of the bathroom, wondering why no one liked your creative ideas in class.
It’s like that dark era of my life now has Mila Kunis as a spokesperson… Cool…
Haim is back with a new video for If I Could Change Your Mind. And it’s great. Which is perfect since they’ve been hyping IICCYM on facebook since the beginning of time. Or last week. Whichever. Just get ready for this dance-a-licious music video to be turned into 1000 gifs.
There is a new Seinfeld parody that you never asked for called Mario Seinfeld and it’s exactly what you would expect it to be… Perfect. Considering most Mario plots are about nothing, it’s really simple to add in the Seinfeld element to it. I mean, do we really know why the Princess is kidnapped by Bowser so often? Did the dialog in Paper Mario actually have anything to add to the story line? No. It’s all garbage and fluff. This minute and a half could have easily been the opening to Mario 64, and I would have understood why I was trying to collect 120 stars in paintings.
The characters also fit pretty well.
Mario as Jerry
Luigi as Kramer
Toad as George
Peach as Elaine
Bowser as Newman
I would like to see more episodes of this show. Because we all know its better than that cartoon crap they put out in the 90′s.
Legos are fun again! Did you see the Lego movie? Of course you did. It was so much fun! Don’t you wish that Jewish rituals were also fun?
The Jewish Museum is selling a Yoda Lego Mezuzah. It’s for the adult who needs to give their ‘Jewish’ a little fun. It’s for the child who is good, who asks all the right questions and is a mensch. For the millennial who will only celebrate their Judaism with a touch of irony.
Are you naughtier? Need a religious Lego Star Wars item to show off your chutzpah?JewDad is selling a Darth Vader Mezuzah. It’s for the kid who gave up being Jewish and gets high on high holidays, but who fucking loves Legos. Because who are we kidding, Darth Vader is by far the coolest character in the whole Star Wars universe.
I really miss the simpler times. You know those days when you got to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy during class because your teacher forgot her morning whiskey in the coffee? Bill Nye was a god. A science god. A Bill Nye the Science God.
Now the only time I get to see Bill on the telly is when he argues with Creationists about whether or not humans used dinosaurs as taxis or other such endeavors. While this is still simple (though in a different way), it is not the kind of simple I can or want to compute.
Recently in this vein, Bill had the pleasure of debating climate change on Meet the Press with Republican Congresswoman and vice-chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Marsha Blackburn. I had the not so pleasure of watching it.
I’ll just give you the basics in a cute little true or false situation. Blackburn made the arguments:
- There is no scientific consensus on climate change- False
- You can’t make laws when you’re basing them on unproven sciences- Ehhhhhhhh (see above actual consensus)
- All potential solutions to the climate problem must undergo short-term cost-benefit analysis - False (Bitch, have you SEEN The Day After Tomorrow? THERE IS NO TIME!)
- Continuing to use carbon is the way to go. – False (Do you think it’s comfy living in the pockets of energy companies? It seems like it would be).
- Bill Nye is not a climate scientist. True (but he does know how to read)
- The amount of carbon in the atmosphere is very slight. - False (Nothing says slight like a 25% increase)
Instead of listing Bill’s arguments, because I sort of just did… lemme give you some badazzzzz quotes from the Science Guy,
“As a guy who grew up in the US, I want the US to lead the world in this….The more we mess around with this denial, the less we’re going to get done.”
“So the fewer very dirty coal-fired power plants we have, the better. The less energy we waste, the better. The less inefficient our transportation systems are, the better. The more reliable our electricity transmission systems are, the better.”
( and my personal favorite directed right at Ms.Blackburn) “You are our leader, We need you to change things, not deny what’s happening.”
In the event of the end of the world due to this climate change situation, I’m building an ark. Let me know if you want in.
I’m not going to say this song is the least bit genius. It isn’t. It’s a toned-down Pinkerton-ish Beverly Hills. Whenever I listen to Weezer these days it reminds me how personal art is, and how bullshit commercial art can be. Rivers Cuomo is still Rivers. He’s the same person that made Pinkerton and the Blue Album. But he’s also the same person that put out every album afterwards (1/2 of Green album not withstanding). His first two albums connected because he just happened to have emotions and musical composition that people could relate to.
I mean, we all want to be famous self-involved musical super douches, right? Can’t wait for that song about him having a threesome, I think that’s something we can all relate to.
