Que Sera Cera: Movie Star (and Arrested Development icon) Michael Cera Spotted at Northwest Crepe House


News
Although he's quickly becoming dead to his biggest fan at WW (due to his refusal so far to appear in the film version of Arrested Development ), Michael Cera , a.k.a. "George-Michael Bluth" was spotted last Friday night at Northwest Portland's most happening creperie, Le Happy. No reason was given on why the star of the much-missed cult TV show—as well as Superbad, Juno , and ...   More

The VP Debate: Living Room Theater Laugh-o-Meter


News
It was fitting that the crowd at Living Room Theater didn't make a drinking game out of chugging every time Sarah Palin said "maverick." We would have been sauced to the gills. But there'd be puking in the aisles. That almost happened anyway, mind you. By the eighth time Palin uttered the M-word during tonight's vice presidential debate, the audience was groaning like a herd of rutting moose. The ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: CYA L8TR TRL


News
OMG! Like, I totally just found out that MTV is getting rid of TRL! WTF? That was, like, so totally the last place on MTV that I could, like, tune in to watch music videos and stuff, and it had so many great moments. I wonder if they're like, going to replace it with some reality show or something that, like, lets regular people live like they're rich and famous or something? 'Cause I would so ...   More

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

Nobody Works AnyMore: Quintuple Methadone Dose For Pachyderm Junkie


News
Nobody Works Any More: Animal Edition! First thing, let's get the cuteness out of the way: Okay, on to the news: The elephant in the room. The BBC reports that handlers fed an Asian elephant heroin-spiked bananas, which seems totally irresponsible. Strategically placed stickers and flesh-colored underwear. PETA pays hot, sexy, desperate models to go "nude" for PR animal rights. 13 ...   More

The Oregon Connection: That Obsession DVD and Its Strange Bedfellows


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. First, Presidential candidate John "Mayday! Mayday!" McCain showed up for a chat with Dave Letterman. Here's a link . It's bit long, so make sure you've got about 25 minutes ...   More
