Toy Story 3 Meets Inception Trailer



Naturally the two biggest movies of the show need to be combined in one trailer.

Somehow Michael Caine doesn't seem out of place as a pink bear and the stuffing coming out of the elephant in slow motion is pretty cool.

There's enough crazy "Inception" theories out that I'm sure one of them involves "Toy Story 3."

Like maybe "Inception" isn't a real movie and it's just a dream within Woody's mind that we're all trying to steal before Woody wakes up to reveal that he's not a toy but actually Christopher Nolan.

I totally just blew some hipster's mind.

Oh Sheila



"Oh Sheila" by Ready for the World is another one of those great 80s songs you hear on the radio and can't help sing along to.  I may or may not have looked foolish when it came on in my car recently.

The 80s were a great time for generic R&B groups like Ready for the World.  Fortunately the "Oh Sheila" video is not as painful to watch as the "Rock Steady" video.

The members of Ready for the World actually look how you might think they do.  Well only if you imagined that they all rocked the 80s jheri-curl hard, like it was never gonna go out of style.

Surviving Bad Theater and Peep Show


There's not much worse than being stuck at a boring play.  Not all theater is bad but when it is, it's brutal.

You can't help think about the better things you could be doing with your time instead of being in the theater.

The UK comedy "Peep Show" humorously illustrates this unfortunate experience and how to deal with it in this theater scene.   

I especially like the line, "If this was on television, nobody would be watching." Because it's so true.  Next time I'm at a bad play, I'm pretending it's "Bad Boys."

Does Sookie Stackhouse Own a Pair of Pants?


I'm certainly not complaining that True Blood's Sookie Stackhouse portrayed by Anna Paquin always seems to be wearing short shorts of some kind, but it's kind of weird that she doesn't own jeans or any type of pants.

I don't think she even wore pants until two episodes ago at the werewolf bar and those weren't even her pants.  She borrowed them.

It can't always be so hot in Bon Temp that Sookie never needs to wear pants.  Besides she must get killed by mosquitoes because that place is like a swamp.

There has to be some reason for her aversion to pants.  Here's what I've come up with:

Creepy Willem Defoe Voiced Polar Bear in the Freezer



No wonder British people eat awful food,  they have sadistic polar bears voiced by Willem Dafoe threatening them in Birds Eye product commercials.

Intimidation and creepiness are usually not the best approach to sell your product.  The polar bear looks and sounds like the snuggle bear's serial killer cousin.

That bear is going to murder that woman if she disobeys him and possibly have his way with her.  I don't really know what that polar bear is capable of.

If I lived in UK, I'd be afraid to open my freezer.  In fact I might not use it all out of fear.

I imagine that the polar bear does something like this Willem Dafoe character but instead yells the words "Eat it, Eat it!" at you.

That Guy


I apologize in advance because you're going to waste a lot of time on this website.  If you're ever watching TV or a movie and need to figure out who "that guy"is, then this is the website for you.

It features a comprehensive list of "that guys" based on the author's requirement for being "that guy."  They include aspects such as type casting, reminds you of someone more famous and ethnic stereotypes.

Although this list isn't perfect as it seems that it's severely lacking in minorities.  I don't even see a black guy on the list.  Come on, black actors practically invented "that guy."

Every black actor besides Denzel Washington, Terrence Howard, and Don Cheadle, is "that guy" to white people.  Like anybody knows Lorenz Tate and Morris Chestnut by name so they're quintessential "that guys."

Don't lie, I know you just clicked their names and were like "oh, that guy."

First Male Contraceptive Pill: Professional Athletes Rejoice


This is landmark day for professional athletes, especially NBA players.  The London Telegraph reports that scientists have developed male pill that deactivates sperm before it reaches the womb.

And you'd only have to take this pill once every three months.  Maybe the athletes should have a party to celebrate this but I have a feeling that would just result in more pregnancies which would defeat the whole point.

This pill would probably help former NBA star  Shawn Kemp who has seven kids by six women.

Kemp's nickname was the Reign Man and was quite appropriate because he definitely made it rain with offspring in his spare time.

Purple Drank and JaMarcus Russell

Oh JaMarcus Russell, you couldn't just stop at being one of the worst NFL quarterbacks ever.

You had to drag down the African-American community by playing to a stereotype and being arrested for illegally possessing a codeine syrup that's commonly known as Purple Drank when mixed with things such as 7-Up or Jolly Ranchers .
