Extra Special gif Round-Up - Colbert sings Friday

Last night Stephen Colbert fulfilled his promise and performed "Friday" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I felt this performance needed its own post. It is definitely a DO NOT MISS.

After the jump, the video gets a gif treatment.

MLIT: Vampire Wikileaks

Yesterday a bunch of images leaked from the set of Breaking Dawn, the alternately loathsome and boring finale to the Twilight Saga. The story, to hear fans tell it, is how SEXY SEXXED UP the images are. And indeed, if Robert Pattinson's and Kristen Stewart's thrusting backs turn you on, you are IN LUCK. SPOILER ALERT:

Twitterdare #2: Tweet a picture of your underwear

 Last week, after the first twitterdare I dared you- no, I double dogged dared you- to tweet me your underwear. After sorting from the hundreds of submissions our judges picked the winners:

Dusky Panther's Saturday Morning Cartoon

Racism This cartoon is evil.

No, I have no idea what they're saying. Please don't hurt me.

Next Week: "Non vi, sed verbo."

As always, the cartoon archive is open to the public.

MTT: Axis of Ewwwwwvil

Oh shit. America time. Hometown heroes. Colonies bringing it this week, SON!

In this episode of MTT we honor a true patriot. A monster that stood for justice and freedom when the world needed it most. A brave beacon of hope that carried liberty and strenght to all nations that requested. Of course, I am talking about my penis (APRIL FOOLS YOU GUYS!!! Also, that is the first of many dick jokes headed your way so strap on). The actual subject of tonight's episode is none other than Super_glue. We all know that SG is many things; knitter commenter, eagle. What you may not have learned, however, is that SG was also a prominent figure of the second of Earth's super wars. So, open up your old history book to the 18 pages on WWII, grab some real dank hydro, and use that chapter for rolling paper because Papes is going to drop some REAL knowledge on you. Lets do this.

Remember these dicks?

Concert Addict's Weekly gif Round-Up

Was anything new on TV this week? Oh right Teen Mom 2 Finale & Make It or Break It premiere. That was it I think.

These images were found all over the internet. Some may even have been made by me.

I'd Hit That: Dave Grohl

Now we have seen all of my top 5 (Ryan Gosling, Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Jason Schwartzman), but one remains elusive, and today is his day to shine. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with I'd Hit That: Dave Grohl.

One of my biggest regrets in life is getting shit faced before and during a Foo Fighters concert in Birmingham, AL in January 2008. I have vague memories of the show and I have tried and failed to piece together the events of that night time after time. The only thing I DO remember is being hit on by a lesbian when I went out on the smoke deck with my then fiancé, The Narrator. Try as I might, I remember no sweet tunage or sexy Dave Grohl ass.

Look What Happened!

Legends of Note: Leonard Cohen

I would like to start this edition of Legends of Note with a bold claim: Leonard Cohen is the greatest English-speaking lyricist of all time. Not the best English-speaking poet of all time (although his poetry is indeed a thing of wonder, and his novel “Beautiful Losers” is a true masterpiece), but the finest artist we’ve had who has put words to music. I’ve been known to say, with only a little hyperbole, that if I had to live with only Cohen’s first 5 albums to listen to, I would die a happy man. The beautiful, sparse, stark sadness of Cohen’s work is brave and wonderful. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Cohen has turned to Zen Buddhism in his later years, as much of his lyrical canon dwells on the impermanence of things small and grand, finding beauty in unlikely corners, and confronting sexuality with an honesty unparalleled in the Western folk tradition.
Who was it who said they don’t trust singers with good voices? They could easily have been talking about Cohen. His is not the harmonic pleasantry of Simon and Garfunkel’s, yet also not the unique put-on of Dylan’s. Rather, Cohen’s is a humble, small-ranged voice that that carries a subtle tune, and allows the listener to focus on the lyrics, always the main attraction. To be sure, Cohen’s output since the 80’s has come to be characterized by his extremely deep vocals, but this a later development, and serves to illustrate my point: while still an amazing lyricist, the focus has shifted; some of the magic is gone.
There is no better place to start than the beginning, with Cohen’s 1968 debut, “Songs of Leonard Cohen.” Right from the start we have perhaps Cohen’s best known work, “Suzanne.” Breezy and melancholic, “Suzanne” mixes images of time spent with a woman in Montreal with ruminations on the life of Jesus, mixed in with some possible sexual allusions, and beautiful descriptions of the landscape. I have listened to this song more times than I can even venture a guess at, and it still moves me. The story told, the story hinted at, Cohen’s quiet delivery, the beautiful background vocals… It’s the closest thing to a perfect song I can think of.

Taking One For the TV: Teen Mom 2 S1E12 (Season Finale)

Just like all of you, I love great TV shows like Lost, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, etc., but I also love some really bad shit. In this column, I am going to recap some of the best of the worst. I watch bad TV so you don't have to!

Foodin' With Lawblog: Flavor!: Addendum

So, after I wrote all that shit last night I got inspired. #humblebrag. I put together this really awesome salad by using the rules of flavor balancing. This is the base:

2 cups pineapple, diced (approx. 1 small)
1 cup mango, diced (approx. 1 medium)
1 medium avocado, diced
1/3 lb. grape tomatoes, cut in half
2 Tbl lime juice
2 Tbl. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)

The neat thing is that it is technically a fruit salad, but is eaten as a savory component. So you can totally be that douchebag who's all, "Here's my play on fruit salad." and your guests/significant others go "Oh. Because tomatoes and avocados are technically fruits. Total lol, I'm sure."

You generally think of fruit salads as sweet, since they contain fruit, which is generally sweet (duh). By adding the lime juice and tomato an additional acidic component is introduced that cuts some of the sweetness. The addition of the salt also further cuts the sweetness and brings out the other flavors inherent in the fruits. Likewise the avocado adds a very slight sourness and, of course, the delicious unctuousness that avocado brings to everything.

I was having tacos last night, so to go with more of a mexican flavor profile I added 2 Tbl. chopped cilantro and 1 seeded and chopped jalapeño.

What's cool about this is that these flavors can work really well with other types of cuisines. For a more Vietnamese take, add the Mexican ingredients, but substitute fish sauce for the salt and add some chopped fresh mint as well. For an Indian take, substitute lemon for lime juice, cayenne for jalapeño, and maybe add a dash of garam masala. The possibilities are limitless! Not really. But generally, if you see overlap in ingredients between cuisines, you can usually be relatively successful by altering the external "flavoring" components to make a dish fit a particular type of ethnic flavor profile. As always, feel free to experiment and please let me know if you have any questions!

R.I.P. Your Productivity: Midweek Edition

OMG LIKE WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT! That's right, friend-like people (e-friends if you will), you're getting a double hit of our sweet, sweet internet findings this week. So get ready, pull yourself up by your bootstraps, don't live in a glass house if you like to throw rocks, and let's gooooooooooooooooooooo!(?!)

For Your Brain
Haunt the House

Ooooooooooo, what fun (get it, 'cause ghosts)! In this game, you basically play as one of the people in Beatlejuice, in that you have to try and scare people out of your house. I don't know why though. Maybe I should spend more time getting to know ghosts. Oh well!

Pet Seminary by Godsauce's Little Baby Brother

I know that I am kind of pulling a scorched earth thing with this video, but my little brother made it, and I am in it, and I am super proud of him, and I want everybody to see it and love it and recommend it to other people and other websites, because I love him, and I think he has done a really amazing job with his friends in making this great video.

Some background info: this is a fake grindhouse trailer make as a part of a contest for the upcoming full length version of "Hobo with a Shotgun", which itself started as a fake trailer on the movie grindhouse. My brother is the guy with the ridiculous fake mustache. Also, the cat in the exorcism scene is Steve McQueen, who is better known on the internets as "MacGyver Cat".

Guess which character I play! No cheating!

Thank you for your indulgence. Now make everyone you know watch my brother's video!

Foodin' With Lawblog: Flavor!

For this column we will be getting a little more “sciencey,” as we deal with flavor. More specifically: What is flavor? This guy knows what I’m talking about:

Nothing like some sweet-ass turntabling to get you pumped from some dry writing about food science! Before we continue, let me just give a brief shoutout to Cooking for Geeks, by Jeff Potter. It’s an awesome book that delves into the science of cooking, from basic concepts of taste and cooking methods to the super advanced molecular gastronomy (ugh) of places like wd-50, Alinea, El Bulli, and Richard Blais’ brain. Most of the science in this article comes from that book, so if that type of stuff intrigues you, I strongly recommend it. Moving

Insomniac with The Narrator: Spartacus

The Narrator again on the brink of another sleepless night, so I pull up the instant Netflix to watch a show my dad recommended to me. I was skeptical to say the least.

I mean my dad thinks Two and a Half Men is funny. So his pull to suggest anything I want to watch is horribly limited. Regardless, I start up Spartacus: Blood and Sand and watch the first season (Full disclosure: this took me a three nights to watch completely).

#SeriousGum: This post has been rated TV-MA for graphic violence, strong sexual content, and coarse language

Also, "Spartacus is a historical portrayal of ancient Roman society that contains graphic violence and adult content viewer discretion is advised".

Minor spoiler alert!

R.I.P. Your Productivity: A Follow Up

Hello again. If you read the post from earlier today (and if not, what is problem? I cannot believe you sometimes! Geez Louise!), you may have seen that I forgot to link to something. Specifically the video gallery for the Zero Punctuation videos. I then thought to myself, "Oh! What a wonderful opportunity I have been presented here to write more for my favourite website!" -Something I definitely said out loud to myself for sure.
Please see some of my favourite videos after the jump. Once again, headphones UP!

Bad Films Reviewed by Videogum But Not for the Hunt for the Worst Movie of All Time

Essentially, this is a list of the negative reviews of films as covered by Videogum for everything except the Worst Movie of All Time. Please write in the comments if there are films I’ve missed.

The WMOAT is a series by Videogum in which there is a search for the worst film of all time, at least as stipulated by some rules. The complete list of films covered by the WMOAT can be seen here:

However, on occasion Videogum will review a bad film outside of the WMOAT. I’ve listed the films below. Technically, these are films still eligible for the WMOAT, but they are much less likely to be covered in both.

No Paparazzo-O: I See You.

Welp, spring has sprung gang and it looks like all the celebrichickadees are hatched and recovered from their winter plastic surgeries coming out from under their golden goose mansions to bathe in the sunlight reflecting off of the camera lenses and what the hell am I even talking about anymore? LET'S DO THIS.

Monster Fit Club: Week 13

I am a so proud of everyone for sticking with the program, and I want to congratulate you on your results. HOWEVER, I have noticed that participation has been trailing off over the past month or so. If you will, please allow me to channel Coach Taylor for a moment...

Weight loss is a long difficult journey, and I know sometimes we all get off track, but you shouldn't give it up. If you are embarrassed that you fell off the wagon, don't be. It happens. You think it's easy?! IT'S NEVER BEEN EASY! (Now, I am John Locke instead of Coach Taylor!...back to Taylor...) Don't quit on me, don't quit on yourself. Fuck, I am just going to hand the reigns over to the man himself. Keep in mind, all these people are crying because you haven't come back to MFC.

I'd Literally Hit That: Gabe

Hello, chidren, and welcome again to another installment of I’d Literally Hit That. “But teacherman” you say through a mouthful of Lemonheads and Evan Williams, “it’s been a while sense you were around these parts. We…phew boy, this is awkward…erm, we thought you were dead. We had a funeral and everything. It was like a zombie orgy – nobody came.” Well, I’m not dead bitches. Excuse me, I mean I’m not dead, bitches (see, commas are important, my students). I may be a bit run down from some long hours at work, and I may or may not have lost a hand to Skeledog while he was in his death throes, but I, myself, am not dead. I am, like the brothers of River Phoenix and Dan Gordon-Levitt, very much alive.

R.I.P. Your Productivity: And We're Back!

Oh hai Monsters! You are tearing me apart Monsters (with your witty, carefully crafted jokez)! Perfect. Perfect reference. I am sure you have all perhaps, maybe, not actually really that likely, noticed that there was no new post of this on Monday. If you missed my explanation, allow me to inform you that there will be a make-up post on Wednesday. Huzzah, I'm sure.
