It’s a holiday weekend here in Canada. SUCKERS! Okay, next weekend, the shoe’s on the other foot. For now: SUCKERS! Anyway, in honour of the Canadian holiday, here’s Canadian model Alyssah Ali.
Bad news! NBC has turfed Dan Harmon from his post as showrunner of Community. Alan Sepinwall looks at how this will affect the show. (HitFix) So should we change the official hashtag to #FourSeasonsAndANetflixRevival?

After the jump, Drew Magary tries to turn Justin Bieber into a man, a sneak peek at Unreal Engine 4 and the best of Booker Corrigan. Continue reading
What happens when someone tries to create their own brand-new Christmas classic? An absolute disaster. Almost nothing comes out worse than an artist trying to make a quick buck with a Christmas album and those efforts get exponentially worse when releasing a brand new Christmas song. No one has been immune from this for at least the last 20 years. That includes Justin Bieber’s new song Mistletoe. Continue reading
It’s been an interesting week in the world. Two sports figures caught some major flak for their Halloween costumes. Another sports figure got divorced. And 12-year-olds have cemented their control over Twitter while their hero gets dragged into his first real scandal. It’s almost the status quo. But no one ever said that the status quo was always boring. Continue reading
What happens when you mix Justin Bieber with a hip-hop beat, autotune, uninspired lyrics written for a kids movie soundtrack and a 12-year-old kid as a featuring artist? You get this week’s Worst of Music. If the remake of Karate Kid wasn’t bad enough, Justin Bieber’s theme song for that movie was the icing on the remake cake. Anyway, let’s get the pain over with. It’s Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never. Continue reading
I’m back in the saddle again for another set of entertainment links. To make up for it, I was going to go with Brooklyn Decker from Just Go With It but I refuse to support the Sandler/Aniston machine (despite the cameo by Dan Patrick). So here’s I Am Number Four’s Teresa Palmer.
The biggest entertainment news of the week came from a sports talk radio show. Dan Patrick scored the interview coup of the year with his interviews with Charlie Sheen. (Sports Radio Interviews)
Here’s the story of how DP landed the interview with Sheen and how he ended up in seven Sandler movies. (The Wrap)
So Watson kicked the asses of mankind’s best on Jeopardy much to the surprise of no one. But you can do battle with Watson (or at lease his algorithms) in this online game. (New York Times)
After the jump, the new Wonder Woman, the NBA all-star weekend and James Earl Jones catches Bieber fever. Continue reading
I’ve drawn in for the entertainment links this week. Since Jackie likes to lead off with someone relevant in his links, here’s Minka Kelly who’s starring in The Roommate. Even the commercials make that movie look Razzie-worthy.
It seems that all TV shows now live and die by the Nielsen ratings. However, these really aren’t the most accurate way to measure the popularity of shows. Here’s a look at why the Nielsen numbers are outdated and why they won’t change. (Splitsider)
After the jump, David O. Russell continuing failure with Uncharted, Bieber fever hits the NBA, and a great CSI parody. Continue reading
Amazingly, The Humanoids is back for the second week in a row. There’s a lot of really screwed up things in the world. With the exception of one subject this week, all of my targets are in the media/entertainment industry. That exception would be the BCS which has completely screwed up college football. Not only is the media an utter trainwreck but some of the people following them are trainwrecks as well. Since we’re a society that’s far too enthralled with the lives of celebrity, obsessive behaviour is really screwing up people’s minds. Continue reading
