I’m assuming, you already know that I’m madly in love with Producer/DJ/Comedian/Viral Sensation/Drunken Chef Dillon Francis. I can’t help it. The cats. The pizza. The multiple alter egos ranging from Becky, the basic bitch girlfriend of DJ Rich as Fuck (another alter ego) to Rave Dad, a papa so PLUR he named his daughter Molly. As much as I hate saying it . . . I CAN’T EVEN. Just visit Dillon Francis’ Merch Table and you will immediately understand that the universe crafted us perfectly for each other. For $20,000 he will ruin your step dad’s Christmas. WORTH IT.
Um, watch this. “Chick Chick” by the Chinese pop group Wang Rong Rollin. You’re welcome.
We love Tim and Eric and clearly they’ve outdone themselves with this new Totino’s Pizza Rolls video. The ad is even stranger than the one they did for Absolut Vodka featuring Zach Galifianakis.
I’m not sure that watching Hard Rock Joe play slap bass makes me want to eat a Totino’s Pizza Roll but, well, I’m not sure anything would. Watch it below: [Read more...]
It’s rather serendipitous: 3 aspiring actors befriend each other in the same class at the William Esper Studio in NYC. They (Kimmy Foskett, Liza Renzulli and Luisa Fidalgo) slowly come to realize that intense hangovers, cute hipster boys and aspirations aren’t the only thing they have in common; they have the same therapist! They realize… hey, guys. This could be something?
Thus begins the brainstorm for the first season of Psychodrama, a web series of short themed clips, each involving events and conversations that have really happened to these 3 ladies in their time here in NYC as 20-somethings. And with titles like Indecision, Sex, Jealousy, Motivation and Communication, these episodes connect with the viewer, no matter how much acting you’ve done or therapy you’ve been to. The writing is sharp and smart and perfectly relatable (props to Kimmy and Liza).
The show is not just relatable, either. The production and direction of this show are incredibly professional, especially for these CHIX on a budget (they’ve used crowd-funding sites for both seasons). I’ve been consistently impressed by the quality and content, so I was really happy to hear that there would be a Second Session this winter (watch the entire first session here). [Read more...]
As mentioned, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists was on Bedford Avenue over the weekend playing a few new songs from his just-announced record with The Decemberists What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. In addition to a Morrissey cover and some older Decemberist tracks, he debuted ‘Make Me Better’ and ‘Lake Song’ from the new album:
‘Make Me Better’
Jane’s Addiction headlined the CBGB festival this weekend in Times Square, which also included the legitimately legendary, Devo. I squeezed in to a packed crowd for Devo’s 4:30pm set before heading off to see Jeff the Brotherhood and Diarrhea Planet at Death By Audio. We have full video sets from both bands below, courtesy of (((unartig))).
