TV choices

Remember when Starz, Encore, HBO Comedy and HBO West are simultaneously showing:
16 Candles, Uncle Buck, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and The Breakfast Club?

That's happening right now. 4 of my very favorite 80s movies all on at the same time. 

Yes, I own them all and I've seen them all 40 thousand times, but this is exciting to me for some sad reason.

All that's missing to make my head explode is Airplane!

The Puppy Bowl

Giant Surprise: I am a huge nerd.

Giant Surprise # 2: I love animals.

So these 2 facts lead to the obvious conclusion: I will be TiVoing the Puppy Bowl on Sunday.

Here are a few of the players that i am already loving:

This is Roscoe, a 12 week old terrier mix.
(um. look at those floppy ears. cuuuute!)

and sawyer, an 11 week old Jindo
(this is a Korean breed that is my fave after the Shiba Inu. look at that face. are you kidding me?)

schroder, a 10 week old husky and beagle mix (OMFG- brilliant to mix those 2! i love it!)

and finally:
Charlie Brown, a doberman mix who is suuuuper cute until you notice his fucking scary Marilyn Manson eyes! WTH?

also, their version of half-time is kittens running around.
me likey.

Dear Animal Planet,
Thanks for catering to me.

Year One & The Super Bowl

here are a lot of words about it from

A Sneak Peek at Sony Pictures' Year One

Entrants get the chance to trace their roots on one of six continents and win their own epic adventure - a trip for two to a major metropolitan area in that region.One Grand Prize winner will receive roundtrip airfare and five nights at one of the following destinations of their choice: Las Vegas, NV, US (North America); Rio De Janeiro, Brazil (South America); London, England (Europe); Cairo, Egypt (Africa); Tokyo, Japan (Asia); or Sydney, Australia. The sweepstakes is open to all legal residents of the 50 states or DC who are 18 years of age or older.

Commenting on the announcement, Dwight Caines, president, worldwide digital marketing, said, "Getting in touch with our primal instincts is the theme of 'Year One,' and one could say that is what this Sunday's big game is all about. Viewers everywhere will be directed to Crackle's Year One microsite to get a first look at the movie in streaming HD quality. There, they will be able to find out more about the sweepstakes.

Crackle offers us a great opportunity to reach the viewers most excited for 'Year One.'"Eric Berger, senior vice president, digital networks for Sony Pictures Television added, "Sony Pictures consistently delivers great content and we love working with them on innovative promotions like this.

'Year One' is one of the most anticipated comedies of the year and a perfect fit for Crackle's audience. We're thrilled to be tied into the big game as Sony Pictures kicks off this sweepstakes."When a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers (Jack Black and Michael Cera) are banished from their primitive village, they set off on an epic journey through the ancient world in Columbia Pictures' comedy Year One. Harold Ramis directs. The screenplay is by Harold Ramis & Gene Stupnitsky & Lee Eisenberg ("The Office") from a story by Harold Ramis. The film is produced by Harold Ramis, Judd Apatow, and Clayton Townsend.


is this one of those joke lineups?

it's 2009 isn't it?

i've got too many snarky comments and not enough time. there are like 7 bands that i would love to see, but i will catch them at a nice cozy venue here in LA that has a floor, flushing toilets, no mostly naked smelly hippies running around and a parking lot that doesn't take me 4 hours to get out of.

500 Days of Buildup

There's finally a teaser for 500 Days of Summer.

I've blogged about, and so have a thousand other sites. People are going to be overdosed on this movie even before it comes out.
Fine by me.
I loved the script and I think it's going to be good.

So there.

it's like they read my mind

This post is for the ladies.

I just discovered this fanfuckingtastic lip/gloss/balm/stick thing from Revlon.
I kind of want to marry it right now. It's not sticky, it's smells sooo good, it lasts and it moisturizes.
If you know me you know that one of my favorite things in the whole world is trying new lip glosses, and I totally scored a winner with this shiz. Next time I go to buy one it'll probably be discontinued.

Even if you are one of those "I'm so pretty naturally, I don't need makeup" chicks or you don't think your lips need moisturizing....first of all STFU and second of all I feel sorry for whoever is kissing you. Chapped lips are quite possibly the most disgusting thing on Earth.
But I digress.

Git yoself to the drugstore and try it.

That's so Aziz

Aziz Ansari (left), Rashida Jones (center), and Amy Poehler are castmates in an as-yet untitled NBC sitcom.

LOS ANGELES - In April, Aziz Ansari is hoping you'll be laughing at him. That's when the comic and actor, a regular on the MTV sketch series "Human Giant," will be costarring with "Saturday Night Live" alum Amy Poehler in a new NBC sitcom from the writers and producers of "The Office" and "SNL."

It's also when the South Carolina-born funnyman will be appearing on the big screen alongside Seth Rogen in "Observe and Report." He can currently be seen as a new intern on ABC's "Scrubs" and has filmed scenes for the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced "Funny People," costarring Rogen and Adam Sandler.

We caught up with the 25-year-old in Los Angeles, where he was promoting the as-yet-unnamed sitcom, which premieres April 9.

Q. Kanye West, mad or thrilled?
A. He was psyched. I spoke to him on the phone, and he posted it on his blog. I think he's going to come to one of the shows. He's the nicest guy.

Q. Is your show anything like Kanye's, with pyramids, funky glasses, and Auto-Tune?
A. I was going to do a whole thing where I had a spaceship, but if you haven't seen his show it wouldn't make any sense. [Laughs]. It's just straight stand-up, no spaceships. But I do "Gold Digger" in the middle of the show for no reason.

Q. Your new NBC comedy with Amy Poehler has no title yet. Have you offered any ideas?
A. The title I've been tossing around is "That's So Aziz." I don't know if it'll catch on.

Q. That's got a ring to it. Does it have an exclamation point?
A. No. But my other pitch is "Aziz in the House!" and that one does.

Q. What's "Observe and Report" about?
A. Seth Rogen plays a mall cop in a small town and I play a guy that runs a lotion stand, and we have a small rivalry. [My character's] a really creepy guy, it was really fun.

Q. Getting pulled into that Apatow-Rogen-Sandler galaxy must be exciting.
A. If there's anybody I wanted to do movies with it's those guys. Their movies are my favorite movies.

Q. Do you ever envision trying dramatic acting?
A. Not right now. I'm pretty happy doing what I'm doing. I just want to do it on a bigger scale.

Q. So we won't see you 10 years from now accepting an Oscar for your work in a war film?
A. No. But I could see myself becoming a straight-up action star like Jason Statham. I just want to put that out there for whoever makes those movies: I'm down to take over the "Transporter" franchise.

Broadway: the new cool thing?

Christopher Guest, the writer/director of cult favorite mockumentaries, “This is Spinal Tap” and “Best in Show,” may be taking one of his most beloved big screen creations to the stage—even as he quits making movies all together.

Jane Lynch, who has appeared in Guest’s last three films, told MTV News: “I know Chris might take ‘Waiting for Guffman’ to Broadway.”

If true — and we certainly hope like crazy it is — this seems to be the first inside word that an adaptation is in the works. “Guffman” follows a community theater group as they prepare to put on a hilariously bad musical and wait for a mythical Broadway producer to show up on opening night.

The comedy seems like it’d make for a natural transition to the New York stage and would follow in a long line of movies that debuted—each with varying levels of success—on Broadway, such as “The Producers, “Legally Blonde,” and “The Wedding Singer.”

“I would love to be in [‘Guffman’],” says Lynch, “But I wasn’t in the movie, so I don’t know that I’ll be invited to be.”

The idea of “Guffman” coming to Broadway seems even more imperative given another bomb Lynch dropped on us: Guest might be done making movies.

“I haven’t heard any rumblings,” says Lynch. “Parker Posey and I have put our heads together and decided we think it might be over.”

Could it be true? Since “Guffman” appeared in 1996, Guest has come out with a new movie every three or four years. Since his last, the somewhat disappointing “For Your Consideration” hit theaters in 2006, audiences might expect a new flick this year or next. But as Lynch indicates, there’s been no official or rumored news about an upcoming film. One can only hope that Guest—like Corky St. Clair, the hard-working musical director he played so hysterically in “Guffman”—is grinding away somewhere on a fresh project.

Whatever the status of Guest’s plans, Jane Lynch certainly has enough on her plate for now. She’s expanded from the Guest movies with memorable turns as the oversexed electronics store boss in “The 40 Year-Old Virgin” and a kooky community service leader in last year’s “Role Models.” She’s in Sundance to promote the Amy Poehler comedy “Spring Breakdown,” in which she plays a poofy-haired, shotgun-toting US Senator whose daughter insists on spending her college vacation in boozy South Padre Island.

Fun Fact: Jane Lynch is one of the funniest ladies alive.

the greatest band alive will be performing at the Grammys.

Radiohead have been confirmed to play the 51st Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 8.
The band are nominated for five gongs at this year's Grammys, including Album Of The Year for 'In Rainbows'.
It is currently unknown whether Radiohead will perform with any other bands at the event. The Grammys are notorious for pairing artists together for one-off performances.
Madonna and Gorillaz collaborated in 2006, while Beyonce was joined onstage by Tina Turner at last year's ceremony.
Paul McCartney is also set to play at the awards, backed on drums by Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, reports Business Wire.

‘Thriller’ Musical in the Works

For months, theatergoers have clamored for new blood on Broadway, and now they’re going to get it. The Nederlander Organization said in a statement that it had acquired the rights to produce a musical based on the Michael Jackson album “Thriller” and its groundbreaking video, in which the King of Pop transforms into a werewolf while he’s on a date. The production will feature songs from the “Thriller” album as well as Mr. Jackson’s record “Off the Wall.” Mr. Jackson is expected to participate in the musical’s creation. In a statement, James L. Nederlander, the president of the Nederlander Organization, said, “I love the idea of making ‘Thriller’ a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what…” A creative team for “Thriller the Musical” was not announced.

SAG Awards

for the first time in it's 15 year history i missed the first hour of the SAG Awards last night.
what an ass. at least i wasn't wandering around at Target or doing laundry like i usually am on Sunday nights..i actually was out having an amazing dinner.
i'm so sad that I missed the opening "I'm an actor" speeches.
Thank God for the WWW.

anyway. I do love Kate Winslet (der), but YAY Meryl! Her acceptance speech is now one of my very favorites ever! Love that woman.

Ditto for Sean Penn. I couldn't be happier that he won last night, and I hope that's how the Oscars will go too.

(note how Katie Robot Holmes can't speak English very well here)

here's the complete list of winners.

and here's Entertainment Weekly's list of Best and Worst Moments.

Fave couple alert!
I love how they look semi-miserable. Maybe it's because they'd rather be home watching the show on TV.

High Five!

Remember when Newt Gingrich and Common were in the same Funny or Die video?

Dear Oscar,

My love/hate relationship with you is quite remarkable.

I love you for:

Including Richard Jenkins in the Best Actor category. His subtle performance in The Visitor is acting at it's finest and should be required viewing for all acting classes.

For nominating Michael Shannon in Revolutionary Road and Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder. Even though neither one of them has not a chance in hell of winning, I love that they got rekonized. Respeck.

The Reader for Best Picture! Yes!

Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson Yay!

Finally Josh Brolin gets a nomination.

I HATE you for:

Why the Revolutionary Road hate? Such a shame.

How could The Fall not be nominated for Best Cinematography? Seriously.

SO tired of people nominated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie so they'll show up on red carpets. LAME. Not one minute of Brad's performance is better than Leonardo DiCaprio in Rev Road.
And don't get me started on her. Ugh. I can do my impression of her in Changeling. Dark red lipstick, a roarin' twenties outfit, rivers of tears and scream "That's not my son!" like a broken record for 2+ hours. No thanks. Sally Hawkins, or Kristin Scott Thomas should've been in her spot.

No love for The Wrestler by Bruce Springstein. Super weird.

No Rosemarie DeWitt for Best Supporting or Jenny Lumet for Screenplay for Rachel Getting Married. Too bad.

Would've liked to see Charlie Kaufman get a Screenplay nomination but that was wishful thinking.

In conclusion, I still love to hate you Oscar.
We will stay together in out dysfuntional relationship and I will tell anyone that asks that "I fell down the stairs" and keep taking your abuse.

(more complaints to come with time)

Here's a complete list of nominations.

Gothamist has an interview with my favorite person alive that stands behind a mic and says things for the sole purpose of making me laugh out loud.
Audience laugh maker?

Stage stander?

Microphone joke-teller?

Paul F. Tompkins

We interviewed Paul F. Tompkins a couple of years ago while he was just stopping by town to tape a stand-up special. Since then, a lot has changed. He now lives in New York, is the sole host of VH1's Best Week Ever and he's just gotten engaged. Next Tuesday he'll be participating in a BWE-themed show at 92YTribeca. Recently we talked to him about the lack of respect his show sometimes gets, what it takes to make the leap into more vulnerable material as a stand-up and how his career priorities changed upon falling in love.

How's the move to New York been?

It’s been quite an adjustment. I grew up in Philadelphia, but I’ve been in Los Angeles for the past fourteen years. So this is really quite a head trip for me. Adjusting to a smaller living space and the weather and being surrounded by people all the time…I’m getting used to it now. It’s been a little while. But it’s not bad.

It was pretty abrupt move, correct?

From when I was told I got the job to the plane landing, it was five weeks. Me and my fiancée packed up all our stuff found an apartment and shipped it all in just five weeks. And I really have to hand it to her. She made all that happen in such a short amount of time. It was really immersion therapy.

What part of town are you guys living in?

We’re way down near Battery Park, which is not bad. It’s nice and quiet, which is the upside. And then the downside is it’s really quiet. It’s like a set. If Universal Studios had a New York ride, it would be like that after hours.

How did you guys end up there?

I don't know many folks who live in that neck of the woods. No, not many people. Not many of the cool kids live down there. We had been to New York for a friend’s birthday party that was held down there and we stayed for the weekend. And we really liked it. So we walked around and kind of looked down there. It’s also convenient to my work and I wanted to live somewhere that was not right across the street from work, but I could walk to work.

The Sundance/MTV photo booth has some amusing pictures of some Famous McFamersons hanging out in Park City.

New Funny Girl: Aubrey Plaza
by Emma Rosenblum
photo by The Selby

"The Internet is pretty much how I got where I am," says 24-year-old Aubrey Plaza, who's currently filming Judd Apatow's latest, Funny People, due out this summer. Plaza, a member of New York's Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, came to Apatow's attention while starring in a web comedy series, The Jeannie Tate Show, directed by Maggie Carey, wife of SNL's Bill Hader. "Judd likes to cast people unconventionally," says Plaza, who taught herself how to do stand-up comedy to win the part of Seth Rogen's love interest. The movie follows a group of up-and-coming comedians: "I play a kind of a young Janeane Garofalo. The great thing about the part is that she's the girlfriend, but she's really funny too. And Judd lets me say crazy things." Plaza, whose next project is Amy Poehler's as-yet-untitled sitcom, is happy to report that working on an Apatow film is just as fun as it appears to be. "They're all so laid-back and normal. They remind me of my friends at UCB. They all act like it's no big deal, like, 'Oh, we're just hanging out.'"

Aubrey Plaza to co-star in Amy Poehler series
Actress also lands role in 'Scott Pilgrim' film

Upright Citizens Brigade player
Aubrey Plaza has landed a co-starring role opposite UCB alumna Amy Poehler on NBC's upcoming comedy series starring Poehler.
Plaza also has been cast in the Universal comedy feature "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" opposite Michael Cera.
NBC's untitled Poehler project, from "The Office" masterminds Greg Daniels and Mike Schur, is set in the office of Amy (Poehler), deputy chairman of the department of parks and recreations in Pawnee, Ind. Plaza will play April, an intern who shadows her.
In "Pilgrim," she will play Julie, a record store employee. The actress, who is shooting Judd Apatow's "Funny People," will next be seen in "Mystery Team," which premieres at Sundance.

Suck it, Reindeer Games

my # 2 favorite comedy of 2008, Role Models is coming out on DVD on March 10th.

i genuinely feel sorry for you if you haven't seen this movie.

PSH alert

The Playlist has a post called: The Potentially Decent Escapist Films of '09

One that caught my eye was The Boat That Rocked, mainly because it was the only one I had never heard of.
Nice job moron.
It only stars 2 of my favorite dudes, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Nick Frost.

In the 1960s, radio stations broadcast rock and pop music to up to 25 million people in the UK from ships anchored in the North Sea, outside any national jurisdiction, thus exploiting a loophole in the law. The film tells of one such group of DJs in 1966 who are at the forefront of the UK pirate radio movement, putting them at odds with a traditionalist British government which prefers to broadcast jazz.

unofficial trailer:


* wait what? Ione Skye and Ben Lee got married. Married? Married Jeesh.

* NPR has a little something something about The Curious Case of Benjamin Button composer Alexandre Desplat (the guy who should be winning the awards for best score this award season)

* Flight of the Conchords is back soon. Hurray! One thing to fight the evil that is American Idol.
The A.V. Club has an interview with 2 of the hottest dudes alive. Yes, I'm serious.

*And lastly let's watch a video because this song is in my head and it reminds me of 2002 when life was way better.
