WATCH THIS: Footlocker is Funny



The Dennis Rodman joke alone would have been worth the view, but the Evander Holyfield/Mike Tyson bit is beyond what I thought was possible. I have no idea who the two Caucasian dudes were though. My sports knowledge is sparse at best.

Have a great week!

Your girl,

HEAR THIS: My Guide to Arcade Fire

Ten years ago, I received a letter from my brother living in the big city of Vancouver. So cool. So so so cool. In that letter he mentioned that he'd been listening to a new album by a band from Montreal called "Arcade Fire". He urged me to take a journey down to the local indie record store (that doesn't even exist now...) and pick up a copy of their album. Well, that seemed like a lot of effort. But my laziness paid off and he ended up giving me a copy of Funeral for Christmas. And well, I was changed.

A decade later and my loyalty to Arcade Fire hasn't lost its spark. In honour of that, I thought I'd take you through every album of theirs since Funeral right up to their newest baby, Reflektor. For all the Essential tracks, I tried to find the most interesting take on the song whether that be a live performance, a video, or in the case of a song on The Suburbs, a while website.

WATCH THIS: TIny Guest Interview w/ Jimmy Fallon and Kevin Hart

Every now and again Late Night with Jimmy Fallon gets so exceptionally clever, absurd, and giddy I die laughing. This video is one of those moments.




I can't wait for this guy to inherit the Tonight Show throne and finally put Leno out to pasture. After seeing his work ethic during a taping of the show in 2010, I've had the best vibes about Fallon. I loved him when he was a cast member on SNL (giggles 'n all) and even more recently during his Grand-fucking-Slam hosting the holiday episode. But what impresses me is the most is the speed at which he's had to develop. When you consider that Conan was given 14 seasons to prepare for the Tonight Show, Jimmy has had to fast-track in just five seasons. And he's gotta be ready. NBC can't afford another fiasco surrounding that gig or I'd say it's time to have a seance and apologize to the spirit of Johnny Carson.

I love to laugh.
