There’s an old saying: You can’t please all the people all the time. Well, apparently Christian Finnegan can’t even please himself. Christian’s inner monologue took a break from its busy day to review his new comedy album, Two For Flinching. Let’s just say it wasn’t a fan:
I recently had the supreme misfortune of receiving an advance copy of Two For Flinching, the debut CD by purported humorist Christian Finnegan. You may recognize Finnegan as the least funny person on VH1’s Best Week Ever. Or you might recognize him as the white guy from the â€œMad Real Worldâ€ on Chappelle’s Show, a credit I’m guessing Mr. Finnegan will try to coast on until there are no longer any frat boys left who think shouting â€œYou stabbed my dad!â€ is hilarious.
Read the rest of Christian’s inner monologue’s review here. Then go buy his damn album already.
From our live-blogging perch in a dark corner at last night’s mtvU Woodie awards, we couldn’t see much more than a bunch of drunken college kids screaming “Woooooo!”, which is why we missed this delicious little morsel of celebrity interaction, first reported to us by BWE reader Pee Dee, and now corroborated by another eyewitness report over at Dlisted. Apparently, in between his pretentious acceptance speeches and constant eyeliner application, Jared Leto found the time to saunter over to Elijah Wood’s table and harass Frodo nearly to the point of blows. Here’s what we know so far:
Jared starts whispering stuff in his ear and and occasionally pulling back to look him in the face. Jared then walks away and Elijah turns to his date…and says something. Well something about this must have pissed Jared off because he comes running back to the table, grabs Elijah by the neck and starts screaming at him. All I could catch was Jared calling him a â€œf*cking assholeâ€. He then shoves Elijah and storms off. Bodyguards come up and Elijah assures everyone heâ€™s fine.
I’m not sure what Leto could have against the Hobbits, but it probably has something with their peaceful, friendly way of life being at odds with his own agonized, angst-ridden emo existence. Also, if anyone knows more about this, be sure to let us know!
Are you a girl? Are you still trying to figure out what to be for Halloween this year? Well, head on over to Girls’s Costume Warehouse in Hackensack, NJ and all of your problems will be solved.
Judging by the AbDoer commercial preceding it and Judge Mathis following it, I have no choice but to believe this is a real commercial. No choice whatsoever. Click here to watch it now!
It’s Best Night Ever for Wednesday, October 25th! Lang Fisher is here to walk you through the best of Wednesday night tv, including 30 Rock, Top Model, Lost, and Top Chef!
[Please excuse the shady wireless connection these pot-head college kids at mtvU have provided us with for the night.]
9:46- It’s over! Lights blare, teenagers “mill about.” Fun is had by all! I’m going to run to the open bar before it’s completely dead and gone, but thanks for joining us in the merriment!
9:44 – The band continues performing, and the guitarist whips windchimes out of his pants and begins jangling them in front of the microphone. I find it sweet, though I gather the effect is meant to be “alternative.” Alternatively charming.
9:35 – Fred Armisen presents the final performence. TV on the Radio! Pleasant enough, the crowd seems very trashed and very happy.
9:32 – Ghostface Killah presents the Woodie of the Year Award. Angels & Airwaves, Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, Panic? at the Disco, and The Academy Is… are up for it. Angels & Airwaves wins. The crowd goes moderately wild, though I do see one woman passionately boo. Tom DeLonge hijacks the acceptance speech, and does not thank Jesus once. What has happened to kids these days?
Beck, TV On The Radio, 30 Seconds To Mars, Lady Sovereign and Feist won’t be the only people attending MTVU’s Woodie Awards tonight; we’re going to be there too, liveblogging the whole damn thing. So make sure you check back here throughout the night to get the inside scoop on what’s going down.
Of course, we don’t expect you to get all your nightly entertainment through the blog (though it’s cool if you do.) There’s a lot going on in TV land tonight, including:
- Dita Von Teese gets the ANTM contestants in touch with their “sexy side.”
- Liz gets set up on a blind date by her boss on 30 Rock.
- Survivor’s Boston Rob drops by Sci Fi Investigates in an attempt to investigate where his 15 minutes went.
- The Biggest Loser chubbies do some calorie counting.
- The Top Chef contestants do sushi.
- And on Lost, not a lot happens and questions remain unanswered.
So what are you watching tonight? Make sure you leave Comments all night long if you see anything crazy… anything crazy on TV, that is.
Here are some of today’s most memorable pictures. Click the orange “left and right” arrows to flip through them all.
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)
