Top 11 Facebook Fails of 2011

Every so often, we look at the most spectacular fails that the internet has to offer. Well today, we look at the most spectacular fails that Facebook has to offer. This week, we have the top 11 Facebook fails of 2011 according to Failbook. Although most aren’t fails which makes me think that Failbook is sort of missing the point of their own website.

Entertainment Link-Off: Saturday In The Park

It’s a quiet weekend in Hollywood. The only movies coming out this weekend are either on the small side or just plain awful. The Devil Inside had the biggest Friday box office this weekend but it’s probably not worth watching. The next three weeks make up for that with at least a couple big movies opening each weekend. But the surprisingly good Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol with Paula Patton is still #2 at the box office.

After the jump, another quick look back at 2011, the latest on some upcoming big releases, Barney Stinson actually goes on The Price Is Right and a real-life Ron Burgandy moment. Continue reading

The Best of The Lowdown Blog 2011

With the start of a new year today, let’s take a look back at the last 12 months on the blog. Last year was a massive year at Lowdown HQ. We set blog records for total page views for the year and crossed 500,000 page views all-time. Hell, we had more page views in 2011 than we had in the last two years combined. So let’s look back at the year with our most read posts from 2011 and the most read posts overall in 2011. Continue reading

Worst of Music Retrospective: DJ Earworm – United State of Pop 2011: World Go Boom

It’s that time of year again. DJ Earworm has mashed up the year’s top 25 songs into a mega-mix mashup for the United State of Pop 2011. This year’s is a pretty accurate representation of the year in music. It has a fast tempo, a driving beat, the lyrics are indecipherable and it’s generally painful to listen to. That’s not a shining endorsement of the song but it does sum up 2011 in music perfectly. Of the 25 songs the DJ Earworm uses, 15 are winners of the Worst of Music award. Continue reading

Man Lab Link-Off: Auld Lang Syne

It’s been almost two months since we last gave you our trademark collection of links for guys from our Man Lab. In our defense, we’ve been digging some good stuff up like Brazilian model Elisandra Tomacheski. Based on the disproportionately large number of models that come from there, I think we have to dedicate a Man Lab post to travelling to Brazil.

Wednesday Link-Off: The Best of 2011

It’s time for our collection of best of 2011 list links. To kick it off, it’s our scientifically determined woman of the year Kate Upton. Not that we actually needed to use our fancy system to figure that out.

Since this is a linkdump about the best of 2011, I think it’s only appropriate that the first link is to a list of the best of everything of 2011. (Time)

Worst of Music Retrospective: DJ McFLY – 2011: The Aftermash

Since we’re close to the end of the year, new song releases are thinning out. So I thought this would be a good time to post another year-end song mashup as a retrospective for the year that was in bad music. DJ McFLY did his own DJ Earworm style mashup of the top songs of the year according to the Billboard Hot 100 for 2011. He mashed-up 30 songs (and one remix) into his 2011: The Aftermash. Of those 30 songs, 19 of them were named the Worst of Music. Hit the jump for the song and a list of what’s mashed-up into it. Continue reading

Worst of Music: Mashup-Germany’s Top Of The Pops 2011 Mashup

With all due respect to the folks at Mashup-Germany, their mashup of the top songs of 2011 is tailor-made for our weekly Worst of Music post. It’s not really of their doing, though. They did the best they could with the source material. And that source material included ten previous Worst of Music award winners. Hit the jump for the first of many year-end song mashups.
