    Clint Eastwood Interviews Other Empty Chairs

    The Iron Throne

    See, I never thought it was a good idea for Northern lords to be the King’s Hand, anyway. They’re always honoring this and honoring that. But I think it is maybe time — what do you think — for maybe a dwarf. How about that, Mr. Stark? All right, I’m sorry. Winter can’t do that to herself.

  4. Obama up late online

    Barack Obama Grants Interviews to Other Websites

    Buoyed by the success of yesterday’s visit to Reddit, President Obama decides to reach out to other communities on the internet.

    4chan: “Hi, I’m the President” becomes the latest meme, with thousands of users posting the phrase in the hours after Obama’s visit. Annoyed, Anonymous uses the EXIF data in Obama’s verification photo to track down his location to “somewhere on Pennsylvania Avenue”.

    Buzzfeed: Interview goes well until an editor steps in and begins ranking POTUS’ answers while he’s still giving them.

    Tumblr: The President writes a stunning 5,000 word takedown/indictment of the American political system, and pledges to legalize marijuana, allow gay marriage, and cease drone killings. He doesn’t include any cool gifs, however, so the post is ignored in favor of a photoshop of Obama as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad.

    “Condescending Corporate Brand Page” Reminds You Why Brands on Facebook Are So Terrible

    We make fun of Facebook Likes and Twitter Favorites and Hearts and Stars and Horseshoes, but it’s positive reinforcement and our stupid human brains are wired to gobble that shit up. We like this feedback, but not enough to explicitly beg for it.

    But have you ever seen a corporate brand page on Facebook? They’re all shameless monsters, desperate for Likes and Shares. In theory, Likes and Shares make posts more visible to a larger Facebook audience. Then, more people will like that brand, and then that brand can drive cross-traffic to promotions, and then everybody gets rich from all that Like-and-Share money. And that’s why corporate brands on Facebook do whatever it takes to get attention, and they don’t care how much they have to pander to the lowest common denominator to do it.

    That’s why Condescending Corporate Brand Page is such a treat: It’s calling out all corporate brands for posting insultingly stupid Facebook content and then begging for Likes and Shares, and it’s doing it with posts that are simultaneously absurd and familiar.

    See some of Condescending Corporate Brand Page’s best jokes. »

  7. Piracy-Proof Band Names

    • Track 01
    • OST
    • Bitrate
    • Audio Music
    • Magnet Link
    • Other terms that you find in file names for bands, that’s the joke, it’s just one joke over and over so let’s just abandon this now
  8. Kimmy Gibbler on Full House

    Why Full House’s Kimmy Gibbler Was NOT the Wacky Neighbor

    You weren’t allowed to have a sitcom in the 90’s unless a wacky neighbor was involved. Family Matters had Steve Urkel, Home Improvement had Wilson and Full House had Kimmy Gibbler. However, unlike her contemporaries, Kimmy never used a shrink ray on the Tanner family or obscured half of her face whenever she went into public. She was just kind of a dumpy weirdo who got shit on all the time by the people next door.

    But here’s the thing—in what bizarro universe is Kimmy the wacky, eccentric next door neighbor when you consider the shenanigans happening at the Tanner house? How is it that we’re tricked into thinking that Kimmy is the weirdo when she doesn’t live in a house with her dad, two sisters, her uncle’s entire family and her dad’s unmarried college buddy?

    To everybody else in the neighborhood, the Tanners must seem like some creepy cult polygamist family of serial killers… (Read on.) »

  10. Each Other's Butlers - Wade Randolph and Eric Acosta

    Each Other’s Butlers: A Five-Minute Show

    What a great fuckin’ concept, right? This is a one-episode show from Channel 101 (a screening series in LA for five-minute videos). Two guys are each other’s butlers.

    It’s an unseen classic from 2006, before Channel 101 co-creator Dan Harmon became the famous showrunner of Community.

    Watch the show. »
