  • LAME PSYCHO STALKER: Maksim Miakovsky. Dude, if you actually killed Hillary Duff, you would create so much angst within Joel Madden that he’d be tormenting us with sh*tty Good Charlotte albums from here to the apocalypse. (TMZ)
  • LAWYERS WHO SUE OLD PEOPLE: Glinder & Glinder (The Sound of Young America)
  • PRIDE PARADE: Doogie Howser isn’t the only gay who’s also famous. (Defamer)
  • DIVINE COMEDY: Madonna’s not so much a “Jew For Jesus” as she is a “Whore For Attention”. (The Scoop)
  • POLITICIAN WITH A FIRM POSITION ON HORSE MEAT: Yours truly. Vote Blagg. (BWE)

Uncle Sam Wants You To Believe That the War Is Over, Iraq Is Safe, and Enlisting Is a Good Idea

by

douche - unclesam.jpgAnyone with a brain and access to news media knows that Fallujah isn’t exactly a utopian paradise right now, but there’s still something pretty f*cked up about United States military recruiting officers lying to kids about the current situation in Iraq in order to get them to enlist. For a country that was able to muster so much moral outrage over an off-hand joke by John Kerry (or, as I like to call him, Hasbeen McDoesn’tmatter) about the importance of getting a good education in order to avoid getting shot at by Shiites, you’d think video footage of the milarity blantantly trying to trick kids into joining up might raise an eyebrow or two million. How is it that we’ve gone from brave men and women volunteering to fight for what is right and just, to some undereducated douchebag trying to bait-and-switch teenagers into buying a one-way ticket to Baghdad? It’s depressing that we have to say this, but we have no choice but to name our own Uncle Sam as today’s Daily Douche.

LISTEN UP: Know Your Hip-Hop

  • As Idolator (and anyone else who watches The Wire) already knows, being unaware of Young Leek and his song “Jiggle It” is not only unwise – it’s deadly.
  • Unless he wants Will Smith to go upside his head, The Game had better quit talking so much sh*t about Jada over at Notes From a Different Kitchen.
  • Aquarium Drunkard’s plethora of outtakes from The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St. sessions most definitely gets my rocks off.
  • MOKB unabashedly loves Shout Out Out Out Out, so head on over and clap your hands out loud yeah yeah yeah OK Go!
  • According to Muzzle of Bees, the band known as Beach House has made the perfect winter record. Though my favorite winter record will always be “Entrance/Edgar Winter’s White Trash”.

ICYMI: Operation Enduring Occupation

Something felt familiar about last night’s “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween special on The Simpsons. If there’s one thing you think about as you head to the polls tomorrow, let it be this lesson, which Kang and Kodos just learned the hard way.

ICYMI: Fox News Channels Pat O’Brien

by

There is something refreshing about bloopers in the new millenium: Those responsible immediately realize their fate as YouTube fodder. Take, for example, the following clip of Fox News anchor Jane Skinner getting a little tongue tied over Afghanistan’s “Top Cop,” to which Shepard Smith response “See you on YouTube, Jane!” Appropriate that such a flub would take place on Skinnerville, which sounds more like a popular chain for circumcisions/burritos than a news program. But hey: At least O’Reilly gets a shout out. (Audio borderline NSFW)

L.A. to New York in Under 4 Minutes

by

Cinematician Michel Gondry and his brother Oliver had an unsurprisingly innovative idea for the French band Laquer‘s 2003 music video: Drive from L.A. to New York, filming the entire journey with time lapse photography. If you’re sitting in a dark depressing cubicle right now, this will probably be the highlight of your day. (Click on white space below to play!)
