    Ben Stiller’s Teenage Punk Band Getting Album Reissue (Audio)

    We all know Ben Stiller now as the creator of movies like Zoolander and Tropic Thunder, and as a sketch comedy pioneer with The Ben Stiller Show. But before all that, Stiller was just a teenage drummer in a punk band named (wait for it) Capital Punishment. This music has languished in obscurity since it was recorded back in […]

    ‘Inspector Gadget’ Netflix Reboot Gets Trailer (Video)

    You might not know it unless you’re a parent of young kids (or a young kid yourself), but Netflix has a pretty healthy lineup of programming aimed at younger viewers. Most of the time, I wouldn’t expect people reading this site to care about that, but when one of those programs is a computer-animated reboot […]

    ‘TIE Fighter': ‘Star Wars’ Short Fan Film Goes Viral (Video)

    Fans of the Star Wars franchise are known to be so voracious for Star Wars related content that they will even gobble up stuff that some other fan made, rather than some official emissary of George Lucas and his outer space friends. That’s definitely the case with TIE Fighter, a new short animated film made by Star Wars fan Paul Michael Johnson, as evidenced […]

    ‘Man Grabbing A Beer Gets Some Devastating News’ (Video)

    What’s the worst news you’ve ever seen on a beer? If you’re the vast majority of people, it’s probably something like “the beer is expired” or “the beer isn’t cold yet,” but a guy in a video recently making the viral rounds has an answer to that question that beats them all – which is probably why […]

    ‘Tron: Legacy’ Lightcycle Can Be Yours for an Estimated $40,000

    It was literally only yesterday that I made a joke about Tron: Legacy on this very site, in an article about The Closet of Legends. But now it would seem that the joke is on me, because a working replica Lightcycle is going up for auction this summer, and is expected to fetch anywhere from 25 to 40 […]

    Taylor Swift is Buying Up Porn Domains

    Starting on June 1st, a bunch of top-level domain names are going to be up for grabs. This includes stuff like “.healthcare” and “.deals,” but also more, uh, specific domains like “.porn,” “.adult,” and even “.sucks” (never let it be said that we aren’t living in an elegant and refined era). This is important news […]

The latest chapter of this historic partnership is the first episode of a new web series entitled The Matrimony, in advance of Wale’s Seinfeld concept album The Album About Nothing. The […]

    Over the weekend, a short teaser trailer for the film formerly known as Mission: Impossible 5 hit the internet, as did the movie’s new title. But as is so often the case, that was only a warmup for the full-length trailer, which was scheduled to drop on March 23rd. Now, as promised, the full trailer for Mission: Impossible […]

    ‘Election 2016: Too Many Cooks’ CNN Parodies ‘Too Many Cooks’ (Video)

    No, you didn’t misread that headline. 24-hour news network CNN is encroaching on Turner buddy Adult Swim’s territory with a video that parodies the late-night comedy channel’s Too Many Cooks video short using figures from the upcoming 2016 election. Wait, seriously? Yes, it’s called Election 2016: Too Many Cooks but I think a better title might have been Why Not? All of […]
