If we’ve learned anything, it’s that if you want more internet traffic you have to give the people what they want, even if they’re idiots (no not you guys). So you have to either be about porn, news, or cats. In that vein, here’s a pretty funny video of a cat that seems to have a serious addiction to cigarettes. This should go viral on Pinterest.
Here at MWTVG, your trusty author and confidant MIDWEST MARK is here to bring you the latest and greatest in new television shows as they get picked up for the Fall season. As long as they’re not comedies. MIDWEST MARK doesn’t watch comedies. Leave that to MIDWEST MO. Leave THE BACHELORETTE Pt. 9 for MIDWEST MIKE.
To clarify my prior point, by “latest and greatest” I only mean “latest”, because it’s really difficult to tell what out of any of these could be considered “greatest”. There are only a few shows that pique my interest in the first place, and here are my thoughts on each of them. To be totally honest, I’m way more excited for the return of some of the year-after-year mainstays such as AMERICAN HORROR STORY and THE WALKING DEAD rather than suffer through getting into some new show that has mediocrity issues and is bound to get cancelled anyway.
In the latest randomized internet meme aptly named “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal”, the ever-forlorn RYAN GOSLING facially emotes about his distaste for spoonfuls of cereal. It might sound silly, but I found it downright hilarious. More than likely, RYAN GOSLING is just trying to keep his abs chiseled by cutting out simple carbs.
Hey girl, remember that Frosted Flakes is part of a balanced breakfast. Does anybody else think it looks like they are trying to feed him a spoonful of Goldfish? In that case, I don’t blame him one bit for being ungrateful. Are they Corn Pops? Who the heck eats Corn Pops anyway?!? Not RYAN GOSLING, that’s for true.
Before you accuse me of scope-creep again by supposedly turning to movies rather than staying on track with television-related topics, bear in mind that RYAN GOSLING starred in Young Hercules as Hercules himself in the late 90′s. Remember that? Me neither. So stop criticizing me already.
And furthermore, before you accuse me of not being a MWTVG since I bring up RYAN GOSLING in the first place, just remember that he was awesome in DRIVE.
One more video to post for the night… there was a funny GAME OF THRONES-based skit on this weekend’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE hosted by ZACH GALIFIANAKIS and special guest starring Jaime Lannister himself, NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU.
Note to all NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU fans out there… GUILLERMO DEL TORO’s MAMA comes out on DVD/Blu-ray tomorrow in which he plays the lead role. Great movie for all those fantasy/horror aficionados in MWTVG-land who might not have caught it in theaters.
Bad Lip Reading is hilarious. If you haven’t been privy to it in the past, most of their videos are worth checking out. They parody everything from sports to movies and essentially botch translations of deaf people reading lips. Which makes me wonder if amateur deaf people think that I’m saying a bunch of ridiculous stuff that I’m not really saying. At least the blind can’t possibly misinterpret the ridiculous stuff that I’ve been typing. Thank baby jesus for the small stuff.
Now for the topic at hand, Bad Lip Reading just tackled one of my favorite shows, THE WALKING DEAD. This is some funny stuff, especially turning The Governor’s lines into a Broadway musical. Maybe that’s what could have made season 3 better? Press play to judge for yourselves:
GAME OF THRONES is now four episodes into a terrific third season. Scene after scene has done nothing but trump everything before it and we are not yet even half way through. This week had one of my favorite clips of the entire series so far with poor Daenerys Targaryen who was sold by her brother to Khal Drogo, has been wandering the desert for almost two and a half seasons and has been taken advantage of at every turn finally seizing the power she has so desperately been looking for.
Kevin Ware hasn’t been doing too badly since he suffered one of the most horrible injuries ever seen on TV (you can click the link to go watch it, I’m not posting it here. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart). He’s been doing interviews and talking to lots of famous people. Last night, Kevin presented the Top 10 List on The Late Show with David Letterman. I like seeing that the kid has a good sense of humor and that he seems to be doing ok.
Kevin Ware presents the top 10 list on The Late Show:
We don’t often editorialize or give our opinions around here, you know, we tries to keep it professional yo. But I’m driving into work this morning listening to Jonathan Brandmeier on WGN (don’t worry, I’m over 40 so it’s OK for me to listen to AM radio) and he is playing a clip from YouTube that has over 4 million views right now.
The subject matter relates to a current hot button topic – gay marriage. It’s a bunch of gay guys talking about what they will do if we don’t approve gay marriage. No, they aren’t threatening to protest or throw a parade or anything like that. It’s much worse than that and I believe they could actually follow through on their threat. See for yourself:
The kids at TYT University are at it again. Last week they brought us the controversial issue of whether toe cleavage is trendy or trashy. I think after watching the video and discussing it with other people, we all agreed – keep it in your shoes ladies.
This week’s topic again addresses another issue that I would have assumed wasn’t actually an issue, but goes to show you how much I know. Are guy’s wearing Uggs trashy or trendy.
I wouldn’t have thought this was an issue because seriously guys, why are you wearing Uggs. They don’t even look good on women. If they start making skorts for men, we will have reached a new low.
