10 of My Favorite Will Ferrell Moments From Movies and TV

10 of My Favorite Will Ferrell Moments From Movies and TV

In honor of the release of the maybe-it-is-maybe-it-isn’t racist/homophobic movie Get Hard (I haven’t seen it yet, so I will let you know if it is either), I decided to carefully curate a collection of movie & TV clips from Will Ferrell. We’ll start with the obvious: The classic “More...

‘Interviewed’ Podcast – Episode 9: Jay and Mark Duplass (ca. 2011)

Jay and Mark Duplass are essentially the dukes of indie film. They introduced a whole new world of indie-ness with films like The Puffy Chair. Their distinct vision and tone were folded into the inception of the mumblecore movement that has left a significant imprint in Hollywood. Now, the two...

The ‘Divergent’ Series Needs to Be the Last YA Novel Movie Franchise

I watched Insurgent the other night and walked out feeling that it was a good movie…but it was kind of boring. I know this doesn’t make sense, so let me use a food analogy. Let’s say you eat the same brand of oatmeal every morning for a year. This is...
'Boomerang': One of the Best and Overlooked Romantic Comedies of All Time

‘Boomerang': One of the Best and Overlooked Romantic Comedies of All Time

Boomerang has always been one of my favorite movies, but it wasn’t until I recently watched it that I realized that this was one of the greatest romantic comedies of the 20th century. Hell, it is probably one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time…but it remains overlooked. For...
Feeling Down? Mr. Rogers Can Change All That

Feeling Down? Mr. Rogers Can Change All That

Ran across this video the other day and it made me cry. Seriously. I remember watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood as a child and, I remember it being non-flashy and a little bit too serene about for a hyperactive child like myself — but that was why it was so good...

Watch a Vine of Iggy Azalea Rapping in Tongues

At this point in her career, I’m not a fan or do I have an undying hatred for the rapper from down undah Iggy Azalea. I’m fascinated with her. And this Vine of her rapping in tongues incoherently is highly amusing and unexpectedly hypnotizing. It’s like she’s casting a voodoo spell on the entire audience....

‘Interviewed’ Podcast – Episode 8: Sarah Jessica Parker (ca. 2008)

During my time as a fashion reporter, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spastically interview Sarah Jessica Parker at a mall in Pleasanton, CA…for nearly 8 minutes. I hope you enjoy. Subscribe to the Interviewed podcast on iTunes by clicking here.
News We Should Care About: 'Zoolander' Walks Paris Runway, Racist Frat Boys, and the Apple Watch

News We Should Care About: ‘Zoolander’ Walks Paris Runway, Racist Frat Boys, and the Apple Watch

1.) I never watched Zoolander so I’m not connecting with the obsession of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s appearance at Paris Fashion Week – but I’m sure it’s funny. 2.) People shouldn’t be surprised that there are racist frat boys in Oklahoma dumb enough to document themselves singing racist songs on social media. I’m not...

Celebrate the Lenten season by Watching This Guy Inhale 8 Filet-O-Fish Sandwiches in 60 Seconds

It’s the Lenten season which means Catholics will be flocking to Long John Silver’s and Red Lobster to partake in Friday fish dinners. But the ultimate fish dinner destination during the Lenten season is McDonald’s where you can enjoy the culinary treat known as the Filet-O-Fish. And there is no other person on this planet...

I Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Watching This Performance From ‘The Voice’

If you know me (and I know you do), you know I love me a good ol’ fashioned reality show singing competition. One of my faves is, of course, The Voice. Because there is no singing competition that makes it more about the judges than the actual contestants. Despite that, every year, there is one...

‘Interviewed’ Podcast – Episode 7: Richard Linklater (ca. 2014)

Richard Linklater may have not won the Oscar for Best Picture, but his coming of age epic Boyhood has certainly left a huge impression in Hollywood and redefined the filmmaking process. He doesn’t need an Oscar to tell him that he is good at what he does. This is my interview with him during the...

L.A. Update: Missing S.F., Juice Bar Compliments, Laguna Beach, Writing Withdrawals

I LEFT MY ANGST IN SAN FRANCISCO I’ve been living in Los Angeles for a little over a month now and I have the tendency to remind everyone that I moved from San Francisco as if San Francisco is a million miles away. From my co-workers to an Uber driver, I always blurt out something...

‘Interviewed’ Podcast – Episode 6: Oscar Isaac and T Bone Burnett (ca. 2013)

It’s only appropriate that I post an interview with an Oscar during Oscar season. Listen to this fine interview I did with the highly underrated Oscar Isaac and the king of all that is music T Bone Burnett when they were promoting Inside Llewyn Davis. And if you love me, you will subscribe to the...

My Feelings About Super Bowl XLIX Told Through Other People’s Tweets

In a somewhat particular order, here are my thoughts via harvested tweets on Super Bowl XLIX — but I only only half-watched it. I went to go get a burrito after seeing the Missy Elliott featuring Katy Perry on a golden robot lion and an acid trip of beach balls and dancing sharks. But dammit,...

Observing the Habits of Douchey Office Park Denizens

I witnessed one of the most douchey bro moments the other day. While I was waiting in line at Starbucks during my mid-afternoon tea time and protein box break, I was standing in line behind two bro-type office bros. At this point the level of bro-ness was low. They were wearing your basic dude run-of-the-mill...
