I love the before they were famous stuff. If you have paid attention to Hollywood, you know that no one (well almost no one) comes from no where. Take Michael Shannon for example. Before he was famous for his roles on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire as the unstable Nelson Van Alden and as General Zod in Man of Steel, Michael Shannon had a small but memorable part in one of my favorite movies, Groundhog Day.
There aren’t many of us who wouldn’t love to be a rich and famous Hollywood actor. We might change our minds if we knew the truth about how long most of them toil in the time before they were famous until they hit it big.
Together they form… The Governor’s Creek. This video clip hilariously and ironically summarizes all the terrible feelings I have toward this season of THE WALKING DEAD. Two weeks ago was perhaps the worst episode of the series thus far with The Governor wandering around like a mute Jim Morrison/Jesus/Santa Claus.
To be clear, I like DAVID MORRISSEY quite a bit and think he could play an excellent Governor-role if the writers would only allow for the role as it was originally written. But alas, we are stuck with a shallow one-dimensional and completely-undeveloped cast of characters. I don’t think that anybody cares anymore when characters get eaten or killed because there is not one iota of investment in their well being.
Hopefully (hopefully, hopefully, hopefully) they are posturing to get back on track with the flow of the comics now that The Governor is back with a group of survivors that has his iconic tank. With next week being the midseason finale, we need to see a big battle, a tank run down the prison walls, a million walkers swarm the grounds and a whole bunch of folks not survive. If/when that happens, I will regain faith in this show. Until then, I will merely use it as unenthusiastic background noise for an otherwise uneventful Sunday night.
I recently saw this Foot Locker commercial titled “All Is Right”. It shows a bunch of former athletes trying to set things right with the world. Being a Chicagoan, the Dennis Rodman bit made me laugh out loud.
I like things that are funny and Adam Scott’s Greatest Event in TV history series is very funny. If you are not familiar with this series, it’s just Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and a who’s who of the comedy world doing remakes of old TV show intros. There have already been two. The first old TV show they took on was one of my favorites back in the day, Simon and Simon.
So this is a thing – Tubbin’ With Tash. You may or may not be familiar with Natasha Leggero. She’s a Midwestern girl from good old Rockford, Illinois who frequently appears on The Chelsea Handler Show.
About a month ago, she launched her new show on YouTube. Great concept, it’s a talk show that takes place in a hot tub. I can’t believe someone didn’t think of this sooner. Quite honestly, I’d like to see the news done in this format. Maybe not everyday, but how about hot tub Tuesdays or something like that. Anyway, here’s some videos of her show.
There are not many things in the world that I would say that I hate, but I will say with all confidence that I have a deep, burning hatred for JIMMY FALLON. The man is an idiot in every way possible, and to this day I can’t possibly figure out how he became so popular as to get his own late night show.
Especially after his six-year debacle on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE where he broke character and laughed during pretty much every single skit he ever took part in. To call yourself an actor and not have any ability to act makes you an assclown. Hence the intensity of my hatred.
Regardless of how much I dislike the man, there was actually a rare gem of a segment on his late night show the other night where HARRISON FORD pierces his ear. I was mildly disappointed that he didn’t run him through with a pike, but we’re taking baby steps here.
If you haven’t seen the Fruit Of The Loom commercial featuring a female stunt woman, I posted it below. It’s funny to read some of the comments this commercial has received.
Some think it’s a bad commercial because it will make young girls self conscious because they’re not as thin as this model.
Others have said it’s a good influence because it shows a strong woman taking names and kicking butt. Both sides are kind of missing the point. It’s underwear for Christ’s sake. Is any underwear really all that much better than the other? Of course not, but now we’re talking about Fruit of the Loom. Hell, some guy may even be tempted to buy some as an Anniversary gift, it’s that good.
This commercial is similar to every beer commercial ever made showing guys drinking beer surrounded by hot chicks. As a guy, I know that drinking Miller light almost guarantees a bikini girl party to break out.
That’s why I’m careful to not drink them more than 4-5 nights per week. Those bikini girls are just trying to put themselves through medical school and don’t want to have to keep showing up in my family room on a Wednesday night. I barely want to be there.
We don’t talk about sports too often here at MWTVG. We are Cubs fans and Bears here at MWTVG so usually there isn’t much for us to discuss. With game 1 of the World Series taking place right now (Go Sox) I wanted to take a moment to remember one of the greatest moments in world series history. Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Joe Carter’s home run?
Fun fact for everyone, the two players facing each other in this epic stand off are both ex-Cubs. Pitcher Mitch Williams had been traded to the Phillies prior to the 1991 season and hitter Joe Carter was part of the epic trade between the Cubs in 1983 that sent Joe Carter and Mell Hall to the Indians for pitcher Rick Sutcliff.
Here it is. 20 years ago today. Joe Carter’s world series walk off home run against Mitch Williams:
We posted a hysterically funny video to our Facebook page yesterday. The video is from a group called Handlebar Mustache Land and despite the douchey hipster sounding name, they are pretty funny. Here is another of their videos that I wanted to share with all our readers (even those who for some reason haven’t yet liked us on Facebook).
