I’m mad at MTV. Back in the good old days (the 90’s) I’d get excited for holiday weekends because you knew it meant MTV would roll out one of their patented Top 200 Videos Of All Time specials that would air non-stop and inevitably finish with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” or “Thriller” in the number 1 spot. Those were the best! Nowadays, they don’t do that anymore. In fact, the only marathon I could find on TV this weekend is the Grounded For Life marathon on Fox and honestly, that just doesn’t do it for me.
But what else is on this weekend? Well, tonight Fox is continuing to bust out this past season of 24 in two-hour increments, so that’s definitely worth watching. The Henry Rollins Show welcomes Billy Bob Thornton tomorrow night which should be interesting. And on Sunday we have the full HBO lineup complete with Deadwood, Entourage, Lucky Louis, and the Dane Cook show nobody likes. So what are YOU watching this weekend? Vote now!
Rob Schneider was taken to the hospital after collapsing from food poisoning and heat exhaustion during the filming of his upcoming movie Big Stan.
Food poisoning and heat exhaustion, eh? I don’t believe. I think this was an act of God. Just look at the IMDB plot outline:
A weak con man panics when he learns he’s going to prison for fraud. He hires a mysterious martial arts guru who helps transform him into a martial arts expert who can fight off inmates who want to hurt or love him.
After letting Little Man get off scott-free, clearly the Big Guy is trying to make it up to us. Thanks… we owe you.
We all remember Al Gore’s mysterious revelation to Jay Leno that he’s been feuding with Lindsay Lohan. And how could we ever forget the scorching heat constantly emanating from deep within her firecrotch? But is there such a thing as too hot? And if there is, are we ignoring the global threat this raging heat source could be posing? Well, I think the answer to all these riddles can be found in the following trailer for An Inconvenient Proposal, Al Gore’s searing examination of Lindsay Lohan’s menace to life on Earth as we know it:
It’s Best Night Ever for Thursday, June 29th! Dan Hopper is here to walk you through the best of Thursday night tv, including Gameshow Marathon, Master of Champions, and Making The Band!
The official “announcement” trailer is up for next summer’s live action Transformers movie (have fun trying to load the now massively-trafficked site). I really don’t understand all the rabid Internet frenzy for this flick. Yes, I loved the cartoons and toys growing up. Yes, I’ve always wondered what those robo-vehicles would look like in real life. And yes, I think it would be fun to watch a fleet of Decepticons completely annihilate an entire city (especially if it was Los Angeles). But there’s a very big deal-breaking factor that no one seems to be acknowledging: his name is Michael “cameras flying around while sh*t blows up” Bay, and he’s the director Hollywood has entrusted with the task of bringing this prized property to the big screen. Why they would give this awesome assignment to the creative genius behind The Island, Pearl Harbor and Armageddon, I have no idea – but I really resent the fact his hacky brand of bad filmmaking is going to ruin my precious childhood memories the way Optimus Prime could ruin a Toyota Corolla.
Nothing lasts forever, especially not talk show hosts – just ask Star Jones. But while some TV departures leave you thinking, “Don’t go!” (UPGRADE), others make you mutter, “Good riddance” (DOWNGRADE). Tell us which of these famous farewells was a sweet sorrow, and which ones were just sweet.
About five minutes ago I was feeling kind of down. Kind of lame. Kind of uncool. Then I watched this video dropped by Jim and suddenly everything is right again. Watch Tak’s “I Am So Cool” right this second. It’s guaranteed to make you feel better about yourself– and not just because of the positive message in the lyrics. You’ll see.
There are so many undeserved internet stars out there. Tak deserves. Please, pass this on, and then Drop something of your own! I am so Cool!
Normally when we do these mp3 round ups we here at BWE direct you to a bunch of cool sites and tell you what songs are available on any given today. Today we’re going to break from tradition. There’s only one site you need to visit today: Trees Lounge.
Now, I’m sure that there are tons of other great updates available on the web today, but sadly I’m not going to have time to check. I’m going to be kinda busy downloading the 700+ tracks Trees Lounge is offering. Okay, I’m probably not going to download all of them, but I’m going to try. Wish me luck.
In honor of the 4th of July, each track is about a specific city or state. The mp3’s are categorized by state and… you know what, I’m going to stop now. See for yourself. Enjoy.
