Absolutely sick. Like 90s sick.

Via Jesse Thorn of ye old Sound of Young America, comes an insane vid from last night's BET Awards featuring Mos Def, Black Thought and Eminem. And while Thorn may be the whitest, baby-faced radio host on the planet, he's not far off the mark when he calls Em "probably the greatest freestyler of all time." OF ALL TIME!


This. Is. Real.

I don't have cable. I don't have DirecTV, either. While Comcast is 97% evil, DirecTV always seemed like a sesnible alternative, and their commercials were kind of funny.

Then they got creepy.

One thing to remember, in those shots of David Spade where he's talking about DirecTV with Chris Farley's back in the foreground, that is a body double playing Chris Farley. Someone else's body is in that shot. In other words, David Spade shot his lines with a fake version of his old chum "acting" in front of him. A fake Chris Farley. While David Spade is talking. And getting paid to rave about DirecTV. With his dead friend. Or a body double of his dead friend. A friend who is dead. Paycheck words with dead friend body double. Fat guy who is not Chris Farley. Because he is dead. Paycheck David. High five.

New Weezer, Same Old Problems

Stereogum has a new track from Weezer online for your streaming pleasure, featuring none other than Lil Wayne himself. Honestly, his verse is the best part of the track. The rest makes me want to kick a bunny. Not a cute one. But a bunny none-the-less.

p.s. That's the closest I can get to Weezy meets Weezer. Whoopi Goldberg with that dancing guy from all the dancing movies. Cause Rivers dances...right?

blog fail

Yes, I fail at September. I fail at consistency, too. I guess Joe Morgan will never sing my praises. Rats.
