ICYMI: I Interviewed Comedian/Improv Maestro Chris Gethard

ICYMI: I Interviewed Comedian/Improv Maestro Chris Gethard

I interviewed comedian Chris Gethard for Paste Magazine…and this is what happened: Chris Gethard is one of those people that’s probably popped up in at least one comedy movie and/or TV show that you watch. His acting credits include The Office, The Dictator, Bored to Death, The Other Guys and,...
This F-Word Supercut from 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is Mesmerizing

This F-Word Supercut from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is Mesmerizing

The Wolf of Wall Street not only holds the record for most scenes of Leonardo DiCaprio sniffing cocaine off a woman’s butt crack, but it also holds the record for the use of the word “fuck” (or any iteration there of) in a single film — 569 times to be...
Billy Eichner Plays America's Favorite New Game: 'Amy Poehler not Pitbull'

Billy Eichner Plays America’s Favorite New Game: ‘Amy Poehler not Pitbull’

Like everyone else, I would get excited if I saw Pitbull running down the street with Billy Eichner…but I would piss my pants with joy if I saw Amy Poehler with him. I like how Billy makes this kind of magic happen on his show. I am enjoying this video...
Song of the Week: 'Freak Like Me' by Adina Howard

Song of the Week: ‘Freak Like Me’ by Adina Howard

There are so many wonderful things about this song. Adina Howard’s opus about having no shame about being a freak in the sheets defined the generation and, to this day, is still relevant. Because in the end, all of us need a roughneck brother that could satisfy us.

Trailer of the Week: 'Jersey Boys'

Trailer of the Week: ‘Jersey Boys’

The first trailer for the movie adaptation of the Broadway musical, Jersey Boys has graced its presence on the interwebs in all its falsetto glory. It’s kind of like Dreamgirls but with white dudes — and it’s all directed by Clint Eastwood. Hopefully this will be a launching pad to musical adaptations of Mystic River,...
The Finer Podcast: Chatting with Marlon Wayans About 'A Haunted House 2' and Other Things

The Finer Podcast: Chatting with Marlon Wayans About ‘A Haunted House 2′ and Other Things

This is the second time I have interviewed Marlon Wayans (here was the first time). That means we are good friends now. Coming from the illustrious Wayans Dynasty of comedy, Marlon brings us the second installment of A Haunted House, which continues his knack for skewering popular movies and all their tropes. It seems like...
'Inside Amy Schumer' Gets the Sorkinian Treatment and it is Glorious

‘Inside Amy Schumer’ Gets the Sorkinian Treatment and it is Glorious

If you aren’t watching Inside Amy Schumer you’re going to regret it. You won’t be able to say, “I knew about Amy Schumer before it was cool to like her” when she becomes this big-time comedic actress in the forthcoming Judd Apatow movie Trainwreck — which is written by Schumer BTW. Her show is easily...

Someone Made the Perfect 16 Second Mashup of 'Frozen' and 'Breaking Bad'

Someone Made the Perfect 16 Second Mashup of ‘Frozen’ and ‘Breaking Bad’

Everyone knows that a movie, TV show, or any other form of pop culture media hasn’t reached legendary status until it has been folded into the Breaking Bad universe. Today is the day when Frozen has officially reached its maximum level of potential thanks to a conversation between Anna and Jesse Pinkman that everyone wished...
The 'Gone Girl' Trailer Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable and Awkward

The ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable and Awkward

As soon as the best-selling novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was penetrating pop culture, I knew they were going to make a movie adaptation. This, of course, would save me the trouble of reading the book because…why bother right? Why take the time out of your busy life to read text when you could...
Song of the Week: 'Grown Woman' by Beyonce

Song of the Week: ‘Grown Woman’ by Beyonce

There isn’t a more suitable song for my birthday week than “Grown Woman” by our Lord and savior Beyoncé. For one, this video is sick with retro VHS pizzazz. Secondly, I am definitely at an age where I can confidently say that I am proud, independent black woman. And as Bey says, “I’m a grown...
Trailer of the Week: '22 Jump Street'

Trailer of the Week: ’22 Jump Street’

For those of you who didn’t get enough R-rated goodness in the first red band trailer for 22 Jump Street, they released another one with more F bombs, dirty jokes, and Channing Tatum putting his hands up Jonah Hill‘s trunks. Enjoy: And P.S. Can Ice Cube be the aggressive no bullshit Captain in all police...
My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Under the Skin'

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Under the Skin’

I had a lot of feelings when I was watching Under the Skin, some of them good, some of them bad. But not once did I comprehend every single thing that was happening on the screen during Jonathan Glazer‘s experimental sci-fi romp — but that is what made it interesting. Would I watch it again?...
My Favorite Memory of the Ultimate Warrior

My Favorite Memory of the Ultimate Warrior

The other day, I was bombarded with an onslaught of pop culture news. First, I saw a very slimmed down Anna Gunn guest starring on The Mindy Project, then I saw Wayne Brady and Mike Tyson reenacting Bobby Brown‘s classic “Every Little Step” music video but all of that joy was immediately deflated by the...
Sisaundra Lewis is this Season's Judith Hill on 'The Voice'

Sisaundra Lewis is this Season’s Judith Hill on ‘The Voice’

Sisaundra Lewis performed a grown woman version of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” last night on The Voice and it pretty much cemented her as the best thing on the show. This season of the reality singing competition has been — in a word — boring. Each season always seems to have at...
Watching Billy Eichner Ask People If They Would Have Sex with Paul Rudd is Wildly Entertaining

Watching Billy Eichner Ask People If They Would Have Sex with Paul Rudd is Wildly Entertaining

If Billy Eichner accosted me on the street with an attack of pop culture trivia, I would be terrified and flattered at the same time…but probably more terrified if anything. I think I would either pee in my pants out of glorious combination of excitement, stress, and nervousness. In one of his most recent Billy...
