This website's updated by Witches, witches, witches and me.

Here is undoubtedly the best take on the unfortunate death of the Crocodile Hunter, via Norm Macdonald on the Daily Show:

Crocodile voice: "Man, he was taunting me with a stick, I could have eaten him and his fucking kid"

Hated by Pitchfork, but considered brilliant by me, Ryan Adams has updated his website and replacing all of his amazing alt-country songs on the first few pages, are the new rap stylings of MC Ryan Adams. I must repeat ...brilliant
“Awww shit, look who got a website”...
The main-page track contains shouts to witches, Anna Farris, 2003, Kevin Bacon, and Waterworld 3. Props to stereogum for preserving the song in all of its glory. Stereogum 2002, bitches, Anna Farris represent indeed.

I may have listened to this "song" 8 times in the last hour.
New gawker music blog, Idolator, tracks how Weird Al released a geek-centric parody video online and became the most blogged about person in music last week. White & Nerdy is all about geeky internet culture and was perfectly positioned to create a blog tsunami.

But the best part of Idolator’s article was the inclusion of Weird Al's version of R.Kelly epic song, set in a drive-thru instead of a closet. I DON’T EVEN LIKE LIVER!.
Soon we will not even need TVs at all. Already sites like scour You Tube for the highlights of some of the best shows on TV.
The feature where they select the 10 best skits is one of my favorite versions of TV-on-the-internet.
10 best will ferrell
10 best Chapelle
10 best jackass
Throw george allen down the well. See if you can spot George Allen at this classic Borat concert.
High-larious interpretation of sean the paul. It all makes sense now. Fishead!!!
Finally, I will demonstrate just how [un]impressive Mark Brunell's record setting day was. Courtesy of Steve Czaban and we have the following in-depth look at Brunell vs. the Texans in all of its (semi)glory.

Based on their research we can see that 11 of his 24 completions did not cross the line of scrimmage and the first 9 passes totaled negative five yards through the air. Wow.

Below is the work of Czaban and Scott Linn
"Mark Brunell had a bang-up day against the Texans, didn’t he guys? While I am certainly happy, it needs to be noted the relative puny-ness of the passes. Not as a knock, but just as facts.
12 of his 24 completions were to running backs or tight ends.
And 11 of his passes DID NOT CROSS the line of scrimmage!
Here’s the breakdown, courtesy of my film watching buddy and radio colleague Scott Linn.
Note: “+/-“ refers to yards beyond or behind the line of scrimmage in the air. Run after catch is not noted here."

-2 Portis
-1 Moss
+3 Lloyd
+1 Cooley
-5 Randle El
0 Sellers
-2 Sellers
+3 Portis
-2 Cooley
+7 Betts
+6 Moss
+17 to Randle El (NOTE: This catch was wiped out by a Skins penalty, but must be noted, the pass was a STONE COLD interception, that was flat out dropped by a Texan, and then caromed to Randle El.)
-4 Cooley
+26 Patten (NOTE: A good strong throw, but only because he had nothing to lose at end of half. Also threw it high, and nearly got him killed. FWIW.)
+3 Lloyd
+6 Randle El
-3 Moss
+2 Sellers
-5 Betts
+2 Moss
+6 Lloyd
+6 Moss
-2 Moss
+2 Cooley
-4 Betts
"Now again, I’m not knocking a gameplan that works, and this one did. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves and think this will work against most decent (or better) teams"

GREAT POST ! That Ryan Adams jounx is mooooney! The Norm MacDonald comeback... i'm gonna pass that on to the Aussie folks they will love it. They had a televised state funeral for him here and during the opening ceremony a bunch of dudes were dressed like him and came out to put down flowers on the ground, when they panned out it revealed all of the flowers spelled the word "crikey." Don't know what happened after that because my head exploded.
