Here’s Dawson’s Creek reenacted by Dachshunds. Oh yes, and it’s called Dachshund’s Creek.
The unstoppable majesty of Chris Messina
He’s added value to every project he’s been involved with, and despite being noticed for his work, he continues to float beneath the radar of mainstream recognition. He should have a bevy of award nominations; his knighthood is long overdue. Yet, he continues to turn in superlative performances, time and time again, his labors going without the rewards that should accrue from such a body of work
Brendon, who previously entered rehab in 2010, also said he intends to seek “treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons”—the slaying of which is not so easy as regular demons.
Fake death, cheap resurrections, and dealing with real grief: a heartbreaking take on the often emotionally-manipulative use of character death in popular culture.
Killing Spock at the end of Wrath Of Khan works, because the characters, and the movie itself, treat it as real. Contrast that with the cowardly handling of Kirk’s “death” in Star Trek Into Darkness, with J.J. Abrams and crew milking the moment for fake emotion while desperately foreshadowing that everything’s going to be okay. For Abrams and his writers, death is little more than a screenwriter’s tool to evoke emotion, and that cavalier attitude toward one of the universal human experiences makes everything about his film feel hollow.
Professional scary clowns upset with American Horror Story’s scary clown. Glenn Kohlberger, president of Clowns of America, has got a funny bone to pick with Twisty. In fact, he believes all frightening clowns are the reason his organization has seen membership drop by 1,000 in the last year alone.
“Clowns to killers. I choose not to play into any of it. The more attention we give it just gives it more fuel,” said Kohlberger, in an interview giving attention to it.
Here’s your New Year’s Resolution: Netflix has announced that, starting January 1st, 2015, all 10 seasons, 236 episodes and 83 hours of Friends will be available to stream. The news came shortly after HBO announced its own standalone streaming service launching in 2015.
Sure, HBO has dragons, and John Oliver, and all the movies you kind of wanted to see last fall but couldn’t be bothered to go to the theater for, and depressing original documentaries about how fucked up the world is. But are these shows really your Friends? Do they know you like Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey do? Will they be there for you when the rain starts to fall?
Showtime’s surprising The Affair. Sure, it seems like a beachy bore-fest about some run-of-the-mill infidelity, but the shifting he said/she said perspectives of this show make it far more interesting than just a look at marital dalliance.
The uber-serious Internet drama, Men, Women & Children. This ain’t your grandpa’s movie about how technology is ruining people’s lives! Mostly because people back then didn’t make self-serious movies about how the advent of the radio was ruining people’s lives.
Christian Louboutin’s attempt to make “undernail” art happen, Loubi Under Red. Makes sense: Painting the undersides of your nails red is just as ridiculous as overpaying for over-stacked stripper shoes just because they have red soles.
The in-depth examination of a 1987 comedy that no one was waiting for, As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From The Making Of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes. It’s less of a tell-all and more of a prequel to Elwes’ next book: Say No More, Mon Amour: Empirical Tales From The Making Of Empire Records.
Hershey’s disconcerting white Candy Corn Creme Bar. Every Halloween, perfectly good candy tries to disguise itself as disgusting candy.
