Jamie Foxx Announces Satellite Radio Channel As Latest Addition His Attention-Whoring Media Empire

by

foxxradio.jpgEven with a successful film acting career, a new R&B album he’s touring to support, and his ongoing 3 year-long campaign for the Oscar he’s already won, Jamie Foxx is not one to rest on his laurels. Not when there are so many mediums out there through which attention can be heaped upon this prodigious actor/comedian/musician/circus mime. According to this report (via CC Insider), Foxx and Sirius Satellite Radio have announced The Foxxhole, a new comedy, entertainment and lifestyle channel that will launch this spring.

The Foxxhole will feature Urban comedy bits from a large number of comedians and showcase music, skits, radio theater and more. Foxx will be heard on the channel daily with a segment featuring dispatches from wherever he is. He’ll also be heard weekly, along with his team of contributors in a weekly show.

Ah yes, what could make one’s drivetime radio any more pleasant than Jamie Foxx riffing on why he loves asses, doing a Puff Daddy impression, then suddenly breaking into the chorus from Kanye’s “Golddigger”? The thought of such rich entertainment makes me wonder what else might be in store for the Foxxyness Empire of Fame. Professional athletics? A Nobel Prize? Maybe he could start a blog and call it “Foxx News”. Let’s hope so.

A Stark Shark Vision of the Future

If you had to sort through as much of TMZ’s “Oh my god, some girl from Laguna Beach is going to the dentist!” videos as I do, you’d think this was one of the funniest (in a scary way) things you’ve seen all week, too. Maybe you will anyway. The “show us your gills!” line is pretty priceless.

  • Lock your children and get out your night vision goggles: Michael Jackson is back in the U.S.!
  • If George Clooney is, indeed, having relations with Pamela Anderson, we sincerely hope he’s using bank-window lucite as protection. That little swing around window would be an added bonus.
  • The latest victim to get “Lanced“? These three sheep. Though it’s pretty obvious the one in the middle is begging for it.
  • Get your gilded sh*t out of your drawer! Roto-Rooter has created a “Pimped Out John”, a $3,000 toilet replete with television, XBox, DVD player, and doody receptacle. Somewhere in sitcom heaven, Al Bundy is crying from joy.
  • OMGGG. Dreamgirls is coming to Broadway! This would be the perfect thing for Jennifer Hudson to do while she slowly discovers that Hollywood parts for overweight black actresses are slim to none. Or at least ones that don’t begin with “QueenLa” and end in “Tifah.”

UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK: Family Feud Writers Lose Their Minds

by

Every afternoon, I take 45 seconds out of my day to watch the Family Feud final round, where two family members are asked 5 questions (separately) in order to win $20,000. Today… today was a genuine treat. Meet today’s contestant Robert, who was on the unlucky end of some of the most ridiculous Family Feud questions we’ve ever heard. Kudos to John O’Hurley for keeping his hosty baritone in check and not dropping dead laughing. Watch the clip, and then reenact it for friends! We’ve gotta go saddle our bird up, it’s almost quittin’ time.

ICYMI: The Lighter Side of Bloodshed

by

Hat tip to Gawker for catching this hilarious series of unfortunate events that took place on Today, where action news guy David Gregory is trying to fill Matt Lauer’s sockless loafers while his royal glibness takes a few days away from the tube. It’s a smorgasborg of TV talk show awkwardness, but the best part is undoubtedly Gregory’s cringe-inducing “on a lighter note” segue into a segment about someone getting murdered.

ZARF’S FINAL WORD: Is That a Bluebird On Your Shoulder?

Oh thank you, God up in heaven, for this delightful Faberge egg of musical beauty, a melody sung by our beloved Zarf which tickles the tiny hairs in the back of our throat with its Aladdin-like sensbility. This man’s talents are endless, and we are literally… falling… in love.

Stay tuned, people. We have big Zarf news comin’ atcha!

ICYMI: When Boy Bands With Tattoos Fight On Video, The Only Person Who Wins Is You

by

This video might be vintage, but I haven’t seen it before and it’s too funny not to post. After total badass-on-badass violence erupts between Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden and Crazy Town lead singer “Shifty Shellshock” (is he also a villain from Scooby-Doo?) backstage at some terrible party, KROQ’s wacky radio DJ with a fauxhawk is left completely baffled, yet cannot resist throwing in one of his patented “gay sex” knee-slappers. General hilarity ensues.
