While doing my daily trolling of the Internet, I came across the coolest thing ever. Artist Katie Paterson took a trip to Iceland and recorded the sounds of glaciers, which she then had pressed into ice records that were made from the drippings of the actual glaciers she recorded. (!!!) It's little nuggets of brilliance like this that make me happy to be alive, and whistle while I work and all that. To join in on the inspiration, go here....

Dragging someone who is vocal about hating comedy to a comedy show, in three degree weather, is potentially more of a laugh riot than said show could ever hope to be; however, when my friend and I braved the icy NYC winds to see Sandra Bernhard perform a sold out show at Joe's Pub last night, she for sure managed to pull off entertaining us even better than we entertain ourselves.  Live comedy can be a painful, awkward, mortifying experience, and yet certain performers can cause...
As the below video proves, the characters on the popular MTV Jerzploitation series, Jersey Shore, are simply method actors following a clearly defined script. Oh, and one of them is actually British. Oh, and if one more person tells me they think The Situation is hot or cute or whatevs, I'm going to punch them in the face!   The REAL Situation (Feat. MTV Jersey Shore's The Situation, Snooki, and Pauly D) - watch more funny videos...

Poor Snookie, she may not be the dumbest Guidette on the show, but she is the clearly the favorite for parodies, well the Situation comes close. I dont know, Snookie is the favorite around here too, she reminds me a little of Donut, from the classic Switchblade Sisters. Who's your favorite? [video: 425x344]...

One of my favorite bands ever has a show coming up, and I can't wait! The hardcore legends and New York natives, Cro-Mags, will be playing at Santos Party House on Tuesday, December 29th. Anyone who has seen this band live knows what a great show they put on, and considering this is a hometown jam for them, I'm betting it's going to be bananas. So get ready to sing along and get sweaty! photo courtesy of r5productions...

Finally!  A teaser trailer for The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie. Emphasis on the word 'teaser' -- it's less than a minute long. But you get to see 1) Dakota wearing some amazing '70s red streak blush and 2) K-Stew smash a chair. I've already watched it 3 times in the past 10 minutes.

After finding out this week that my very favorite show, Flight of the Conchords, was not coming back for a new season, I was heartbroken. But thanks to my pal Jodi, I've been alerted to a pair of dudes who hail not from New Zealand but from the Old Testament: a couple of members of my tribe (I'm guessing) who, with a bit more work, just might become contenders to be the next FOC. Check out some of their videos below, and Happy Hannukah y'all! [video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEShWaTVxYQ...
