Nobody Works Anymore: Because you still have 3.5 days left until the weekend, so why not laugh at news anchors?


News
In the book Watt, Samuel Beckett's title character enumerates a hierarchy of laughter, ranging from the "bitter" and the "mirthless laugh" to the "risus purus, the laugh laughing at the laugh, the beholding, the saluting of the highest joke, in a word the laugh that laughs—silence please—at that which is unhappy." You know, he may have been on to something there, but I still feel bad for ...   More

Free-Range Chickens: Rich Family Bears Funny Fruit

News
We're often accused of straining for a quirky local angle on a national story. But sometimes it's hard to resist, especially when all it takes is 10 minutes on Google. For example... Remember that DVD, Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, that was inserted into Sunday copies of The Oregonian, sparking protests, subscription cancellations and a wan defense from publisher Fred Stickel? ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: Awkward!


News
So apparently last week was the Republicans' "Let's make awkward appearances on the Elite Media's comedy shows and try to smile as they rip on us" week. It was about as cringe inducing as it sounds.

Louis CK talks America off the ledge—then kicks it in the balls.


News
As the writer-director of the cult, er, “classic” Pootie Tang, Louis CK isn't an artist you'd normally go to for profundity. But at the Newmark Theater last Saturday, the comic did—in his own, c-word and shit-joke laden way—present a rather poignant message about the state of the country. And for a guy who usually bristles to the point of a Tourette's-style breakdown over ...   More
