Teen Mom's Farrah Made an Awful Song

Just when you thought Farrah from MTV's "Teen Mom" could not get any worse,  she made a terrible song called "On My Own."

Well song is a relative term as it's mostly her using auto-tune and a dubstep beat to complain about how hard her life can be.

This song is so awful that it literally caused a dog to wake up and look alarmed like there was a threat to his safety.

Film and TV Promo Songs of Fall 2012

Every Fall there seems to be a couple of songs that studios and TV networks use to promote their new films and fall schedules.  Last year it was that Hello song that they played as much as possible.

This year the songs being used are Imagine Dragons "It's Time," The Lumineers "Hey Ho," and "Phillip Phillips "Home."

I can only imagine a guy named Phillip Phillips must live at 123 Fake Street as well.  Not to mention, "Hey Ho"seems more likely to be a title of a rap song than what it actually is.

"It's Time" has been paired with every "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"  trailer,  "Ho Hey" has shown up in numerous TV and film promos including the Silver Linings Playbook trailer, and of course "Home" became ubiquitous as the theme for the U.S. women's gymnastic team during the London Olympics.

It's not surprising that these are the three songs because they have more common than just being from artists or bands with bizarre names.

Studios and TV networks might realize that they all contain the formula for evoking sentiments in promos.

Sesame Street Parody: Birdwalk Empire

"Sesame Street' keeps making great TV show parodies. This time they have spoofed "Boardwalk Empire" with their own "Birdwalk Empire."

They've cleverly replaced Steve Buscemi's Nucky character with a duck called Nucky "Ducky" Thompson and Lucky Luciano with a chicken called Clucky Luciano.

Tensions rise on the Birdwalk as the ducks and chicken realize that you can't be half a gangster... err I mean bird.

There's no replacement for the grating Margret Schroeder character, but I'd imagine she'd be an annoying pigeon.

If this was a real Birdwalk though, there would be a lot more bird droppings and seagulls eyeing food.
