I Want That!!!! G.O.B.’s Segway 4 Sale



The DVD’s aren’t enough; I need something else to remind me what an incredible show Arrested Development was. Something like… G.O.B.’s Segway, which is being auctioned off on eBay right now!

This is GOB’s Titanium colored model HT i167 Segway used in the production of the Twentieth Century Fox Television Program, Arrested Development. The Segway appeared in multiple episodes being ridden by G.O.B. (Will Arnett) and became a signature to his character and is often referred to as “G.O.B.’s scooter” on the show. G.O.B. is first shown riding the Segway in the Pilot episode.

It’s only $3,500. Small price to pay. Let’s all pool our money together and share it. What do you say? (link via A Whole Lotta Nothing)

While You Were Already Missing Project Runway


  • Pete Doherty is furious that Jack Osbourne claims he once kissed Kate Moss. This is incredibly significant, as it marks the first time Pete has made the tabloids for something other than excessive heroin use. Congratulations buddy!
  • Stephen Hawking and his wife are divorcing after 11 years . Sources claim that another woman may be involved, proving that only is Hawking much smarter than you, he gets more ass than you do as well.
  • A top Kazakh official has invited Sacha Baron Cohen (aka: Borat) to come visit their glorious nation. But only after they build an airport and someplace for visitors to stay other than a barn.
  • A leaping stingray jumped on to an 81-year-old man’s boat and stabbed him in the chest. These creatures… must be… stopped.
  • “Rocker” Sting thinks rock music today is boring. One more time; that’s STING saying that today’s rock music is boring. Sting. Yep. That one. Sting.




  • DETAILS DENIAL: Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong swear they’re not gay for each other, no matter how hard (and sweaty) they try convincing us otherwise. (PopBytes)
  • SCREECH AND TELL: Something tells me that nothing in the Dustin Diamond sex tape will be quite as disgusting as just how proud he is of having made it. (UsWeekly)
  • SCREECH BACKLASH: Possibly having witnessed said sex tape, comedian Patton Oswalt is calling for the end of ALL internet porn, harking back to simpler times when tattered Playboys were used as currency among adolescents. (MonkeyBicycle via CC Insider)
  • IRONIC IDIOTIC T-SHIRT: A “Let’s Hug It Out” T-shirt is the perfect way to tell the world, “I support cliched TV show references that ceased being funny 2 years ago”. (SnorgTees)
  • ONLINE PREDATORS: Teens posing as record executives trying to lure bands to Los Angeles? (BBSpot)

LISTEN UP: Holidays Are Here Again



  • Take a moment to remember your worst Christmas ever (Dad+Alcohol+Beard=Therapy), then head over to Planeta Pop and see how it compares to the angelicly delightful Sufjan Stevens‘ Worst Christmas Ever!
  • Music for Robots alerts us to a song for the one holiday sadly ignored since The Monster Mash came out in 1962: “Halloween Song” from The Evangelicals.
  • Stereogum leaks three songs from the highly anticipated Borat soundtrack (with the title too long to print.) We cannot stop humming that Born to Be Wild track!
  • My Chemical Romance fans should kiss Idolator‘s virtual feet for leaking the unreleased song “Mama”. Kind of sounds like it should be on the Borat soundtrack, no?
  • Finally, we beg you to take a moment of your day, click on this Youtube link, and marvel at Charlotte Church and some Goth Prostie Wino reinterpreting your favorite Michael Jackson song, “Beat It”.

THE DAILY DOUCHE: Steve-O’s Doucheward Spiral


steveo_laughfactory.jpgA person only has so much bodily fluid with which they can fuel their self-destructive gravy train, so it’s not altogether surprising that Steve-O has embarked upon a post-Jackass career of publicly degrading himself in ways previously thought impossible. First he peed all over the red carpet at the premiere of his own movie, trying (rather unsucessfully) to demonstrate his pitiful lack of toilet training for nearby paparazzi. Then he outraged the tens of people who watch The Tom Green Death Rattle Podcast by huffing nitrous, getting f*cked out of his mind, and bragging about sexual conquests of which he played no part (something tells me his penis has been poked, pierced and pounded into non-functioning submission). And now Steve-O has accomplished a Tard Trifecta by finding a way to humiliate himself that actually makes sticking lit M-80′s up his ass seem charming: stand-up comedy. His Dane Cook-on-Crack observations on his career, his celebrity (including a mind-bending moment of self-reflexive irony when he mentions TMZ, the site on which you’re actually watching this trainwreck) and the “LA hip hop” scene are as delightfully hilarious as a bag of the world’s cutest kittens being pounded against a brick wall. I’m not sure what “the DEAL” is with Douche-O’s pathological need for negative attention (though something tells me you can easily find out by catching his weekend run at your local “Ha Ha Hole”), but he’s definitely a walking punchline, and he’s definitely today’s Daily Douche.

BWE SPORTS: Daunte Culpepper Might Not Be The Only Disaster In Dolphin Stadium This Weekend


daunte.jpgAre you ready for some football uncorroborated bomb threats??? From CNN:

The Department of Homeland Security has sent an advisory to the National Football League and local officials advising of a possible, uncorroborated bomb threat against some NFL stadiums.

The threat, posted on a Web site, alleges that dirty bombs could be used this weekend against seven stadiums — in Miami, New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland. The bombs were to be delivered by truck, the posting said.

Houston? Oakland? Miami? Cleveland? It’s clear: Terrorists hate s**tty football teams. Somebody rush the Arizona Cardinals into a bunker, ASAP.

Of course, the big question that stems from this whole thing: if one of your fantasy football players is in a stadium when it’s attacked, how does that impact your waiver wire position? Because you know, if I lose my Tight End before halftime and I’m unable to sub somebody in, I’m not going to be happy.


Own a Piece of Basic Cable History & Save a Chlid!


ColbertPortrait.JPGIt’s amazing how quickly a year can pass. We remember when The Colbert Report was the small prune-faced baby, cradled against The Daily Show‘s bosom in a fur-lined papoose, and breastfed by legion’s of satire-hungry Americans. Now, one year later, and The Colbert Report has blossomed into it’s own phenomenon, a strong and able-bodied half hour of comedy that can sit fully upright on its own.

To celebrate the year anniversary, the show is auctioning off the famous portrait of Stephen Colbert that hangs over the set’s mantlepiece. The description reads:

The portrait, which depicts Stephen standing by his fireplace and in front of a previous portrait, will be replaced with a new portrait, which depicts Stephen standing by his fireplace, in front of a previous portrait, in front of a previous portrait. At least one critic has already heralded the Stephen Colbert Portrait Series as “the equivalent of the Genius Grant, the Fibonacci Sequence, and ‘The DaVinci Code’ combined.”

All of the proceeds will be donated to the Save the Children Foundation (Madonna) Good luck guys! And Happy Birthday!
