Why are these only available in Texas?

H-E-B: "We'll ship your order to you!" Oh?

Oh… "Ship anywhere within the contiguous U.S. (excluding CA)."

Rescind the In-N-Outs in Texas!

Don't look now, but James Franco has directed film adaptations of William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, and John Steinbeck's In Dubious Battle – the CliffsNotes trilogy.

Q: Does the stage musical adaptation of Groundhog Day feature a song about WrestleMania?

Idea: A stage musical whose songs are all existing wrestler entrance music. Add lyrics to instrumental entrance music as needed.

The bright-eyed choke on ambition

Why didn't anyone tell me about Lil Poopy?!


At first glance, I thought Lil Poopy was a girl – Zac Hanson 2K16.

'The reason why they call me Lil Poopy is 'cause my dad, when he used to change me, I used to poop all over his hands,' he explained. 'And he stuck me with that name.' [source]

"You will be 'Lil Poopy' AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!"

2026: "I love it when you call me 'Big Poopy'…"

I'm sure we're taller in another dimension

Rory: Monster Trucks is about monsters that live inside trucks, not anthropomorphic monster trucks.
Jon: [pause]

Rory: Fuck, marry, kill:

Jon: Who would fuck or marry Trolls? And who would marry Monster Trucks? The only answer is: Fuck Monster Trucks, marry Storks, and kill Trolls.

I asked some mates which Fantastic Fest badge icon I should choose.

I thought most would answer "metal," but most answered "mad magician" or "satan." I was leaning toward "cannibal."

Drew: Who would ever choose "pedophilia"?
Jon: Have you not been on the internet before?

For Halloween, I'm debating between being 21 Savage or Zombie Prince (Michael Jackson's "Thriller" make-up + Prince's Purple Rain garb).

In September, [Donald Glover is] throwing a three-day festival in Joshua Tree called Pharos. [source]

Wonder who he booked.

PHAROS is a series of live shows on September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Joshua Tree, CA. Each full-length, live Childish Gambino show will be comprised of new music.

Oh, it's just him for three days — performing only new music?

Please note your specific show times: early shows at 9PM and late shows at 12AM.

Child-Phish Gambino.

Motherland is described as an epic military fantasy set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country. [source]

"'Carpool Karaoke' Series Coming Exclusively to Apple Music"
"TBS Orders James Corden 'Late Late Show' Bit 'Drop the Mic' to Series"

Series spin-offs of recurring late night talk show segments are the new film spin-offs for recurring Saturday Night Live characters.

I suppose America's Got Talent is Stupid Human Tricks, and Billy on the Street is Jaywalking.

Mean Tweets: The Series?

I thought "To Tell the Truth with food" was Food Network scraping the bottom of the barrel, and then I saw an ad for Food Network Star Kids.

How many kids versions of Food Network shows is that now?

Chopped Junior, Cupcake Wars Kids, Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Kids Baking Championship, Kids BBQ Championship

The Food Network playbook:
• Rip off an existing show
• Themed episodes
• Tournaments
• Kids version
