By now you’re well aware that Isaac Hayes has left South Park (we’ve mentioned it a couple of times.) In the words of Eric Cartman, Hayes got sand in his vagina over a November episode of the show that poked fun at Scientology.
What was so bad about the episode that poked fun at Tom Cruise, John Travolta, R. Kelly, and L. Ron Hubbard himself? Well, see for yourself:
You can download some clips here. Or, if you really have time to kill, watch the whole damn episode here.
So what do you think? Is Chef over-reacting, or is this episode really the worse thing to happen to South Park since Mecha-Streisand? Your call.
When Office Space came out in the mid 90′s it was way ahead of its time. Humour about the mundane was trumped by Quentin Tarantino-esque pop-violence. Well imagine how successful the sleeper hit would have been if they packaged it as a crime thriller. Ron Livingston would probably be headlining a 16 Blocks by now. (via daily sixer)

If you’re as big a fan of Tyra Banks as we are then being a guest on her life-changing show would probably be a life-changing dream come true. We visited the life-changing Tyra website to see what kinds of shows they’ve got coming up and to our surprise, the producers are planning a show about Tyra! They’re looking for guests that feel passionately about the talk show host:
Are you Tyraâ€™s number one fan? Do you dream of one day meeting Tyra face-to-face? Have you been inspired to accomplish a dream or overcome great odds because of something that Tyra said or did? Have you done something wild, or even embarrassing, hoping to get the chance to see or meet Tyra? Do your friends and family love to tell funny stories about how much you admire Tyra?
While the Best Week Ever family loves to tell funny stories about Tyra, she already knows how we feel about her. This is your chance to give back; you owe her that much. Be a guest on the show!
You’ve probably never heard of Haldis Gundersen, but once you hear her story, you might want to get to know her so she’ll invite you to her house:
By an improbable feat of clumsy plumbing, someone at the [Big Tower Bar] in Kristiandsund, western Norway…accidentally hooked the beer hoses to the water pipes for Gundersen’s apartment. "We had settled down for a cozy Saturday evening, had a nice dinner, and I was just going to clean up a little," Gundersen, 50, told The Associated Press by telephone Monday. "I turned on the kitchen faucet and beer came out."
The beer was flat, but I still think that deserves a full-throated "Dude!" and Gundersen has to be considered a candidate for Best Week Ever status.
What happens when you combine one of the best pop-rock artists of the 90′s (before "pop" was considered a dirty word) and one of the hottest rock chicks of the 80′s? You get Sid ‘n’ Susie, a side project of sorts featuring Matthew Sweet and The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs.
Go to their MySpace page and listen to their covers of the Velvet Underground, the Beatles, and the Bee Gees. Okay, you can skip the Bee Gees one if you want.
As a student of VH1′s Behind The Music, I have to warn Matthew about something before the two embark on a musical career together (they’re playing South By Southwest this weekend): don’t let Susanna’s unparalleled sexiness tear the band apart. It caused problems with The Bangles, and it has the potential to break up Sid ‘n’ Susie as well. Just let her be the sexy one, okay Matthew? Think you can do that? Great.
(Oh, and in case you were worried, these pictures are proof that Susanna’s still got it. The years of walking like an Egyptian have done her well.)
SPOILER ALERT: If you’re a Sopranos viewer and haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, stay in your cave and DON’T read this post!
Here’s the footage of what you’ve been hearing about by the watercooler all day. A couple things about Uncle Junior: a) what the hell does he say right before he does the deed, and b) does anybody else think he seems like he’s straight out of a David Lynch film?
