Thinking About Carson Daily?

by

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the hugest fan of Carson Daly. My aversion began many years ago when he refused my free labor as an intern on his talk show — no matter how many roses I sent to him — and lingers to this day whenever my dial happens to land on NBC between 1:35 and 2:05 am ET. (Looks like they won’t hire me now, either.) But my passive dislike of the man is nothing compared to comedian Kate Spencer, who spends nearly every minute of every waking hour in a continual cloud of Carson Daly hatred. Watch this video (which, fair warning, features Tara Reid‘s “goose-egg areola“), and see how your hatred compares. (Link via The Apiary)

YOUTUBULAR: Everybody Spies Sometimes

by

Do you like Best Week Ever? Comedy? Laughing in general? Well, according to this article in the New York Observer, none of that existed before Spy magazine.

Had it not been for Spy, of course, there never would’ve been a Gawker Stalker (Spy loved maps, anonymity), nor Ashton Kutcher’s Punk’d (Spy loved pranks), nor VH1′s “Best Week Ever” (Spy loved postmortems).

Well, thank God for Spy. Here’s a great video from Spy’s old “How To Be Famous” series. This is The Montalban Experiment.

BWE INVESTIGATES: What Else Is Paris Hiding?

by

It was reported this week that Paris Hilton has been hiding her weed (or as she calls it, “personal interestingness supplement”) in her teddy bear while traveling. This shocking revelation left us wondering what else Paris could be hiding, so we some hard-hitting invesigating, boldly going into the den of sin itself – her bedroom! – to see what kinds of contraband we could uncover. Roll your Mouse over the blue dots to see Paris’ hidden treasures!

This Christmas, Get Your Dog a Glamour Shot!

by

PUP2.JPGAnyone under the age of 30 should be familiar with Glamour Shots, the portrait studio in suburban shopping malls around the country where, for a nominal fee, one is painted to look like a $5 salloon whore/gay gigolo, placed in a cowboy hat, tarred, feathered, and turned into a wallet-sized photograph. (Examples seen here, here, here and here.) We assumed Glamour Shots went the way of slap bracelets and Kriss Kross, and were shocked to find out that the store still exists! And not only are they still around, but now they’re catering to dogs.

You probably thought your dog was just as sexy with or without makeup… But boy will your mind be changed when you check out the Glamour Shots Pet Gallery. Note the twinkle in this hounds eye as he is nearly strangled with an emasculating feather boa. And nothing says “Happy Hanukkah” like a Golden Retreiver photographed against his will. But don’t sweat it, camera hog: You too can join in on the fun and engage in a heavy petting session Christmas card the whole family will cringe-oy!

If you still have your Glamour Shots, we’d love to see ‘em. E-mail them over to us at info@bwe.tv!

ICYMI: Bob Dylan Is Like A Rollin’ Over In His Grave

by

The cast of The Times They Are A-Changin, the new Broadway musical featuring the music of Bob Dylan, dropped by The View this morning to butcher perform the classic song “Like A Rolling Stone”. What ensued looked like a bad skit on Studio 60. Thank God Bob isn’t alive to see this.

Wow. That certainly wasn’t “Blowin’ In The Wind”. Just blowin’.

THE DAILY DOUCHE: Douchin’ the Night Away

by

douchefight.JPGAnyone who’s ever wondered why Los Angeles is such a wonderful place to live need look no further than the “Hollywood wildlife in its natural habitat” footage found here (language NSFW), taken outside of the ironically-named “Privilege” nightclub, depicting Sean Stewart, “really famous” son of Rod and brother of Kimberly, participating in a verbal-turned-violent battle with some other LA night-clubbing greasemonkey over who is “better than” the other. The best parts are the high-brow insults (“my grandfather has a better hairstyle than you!”), the spitting in the face, the cool cursing, the drunken partygirl’s declaration that these guys “are f*ckin’ stupid”, and the Kimberly Stewart going on into the club to grab a Vodka/Red Bull while her douchebro gets into an idiotic shoving match with some other people whose parents’ success has left them with an preposterous sense of entitlement. This is the Hollywood dream in action, folks – and everyone involved in it gets to share the honor of being today’s Daily Douche!

  • Indieblogheaven has a couple of Ben Folds sans-Five songs for your enjoyment today.
  • Kwaya Na Kisser has a huge mix posted, featuring everybody from The Rapture to The Roots to Tokyo Police Club. And everything in between.
  • If you don’t have “When I Wake” by The Changes on your iPod by now, something is seriously wrong. Show Me Music wants to help.
  • Remember Rusted Root? Me neither. But Muruch does, which is why they posted three tracks that aren’t “Send Me On My Way” for you.
  • And finally, Merry Swankster has a bunch of Pulp videos and downloads, including “Can I Have My Balls Back, Please?” What a title.
