Kids shows these days…

At tonight's Tumblr Fuck Yeah Party Sponsored by Entourage—that is the party's official name— I meet an Entourage fanboy named Jeff. I ask him why he loves the show.

"It's the life I wanted," he says. "I just missed out on it."

Later, I find another fan named Spencer, who's rocking a white satin football jersey. Are you excited for the movie? I ask.

"I'm fuckin' excited as hell. Yeah, to see some titties and see some fuckin' extravagant spending of money." [source]

Story Idea: A hotly anticipated music album leaks, and everyone who listens to the leak dies as soon as they stop listening.

Sketch Idea: Modern Funeral. Selfies with the corpse, obvs. Tweet your respects using the hashtag #roryin5words. Eulogies: 28 things you probably didn't know about Rory, 19 things only childhood friends of Rory will understand. A pre-recorded video is played of Rory reacting to his or her death – "Hey guys…"

NHL Idea: The team that wins the Presidents' Trophy receives a free power play that it can use at any time during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Started from the bottom

Sloan is a rock/power pop quartet from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The success and recognition of their albums, (most notably Twice Removed) in rankings has made Sloan one of the best Canadian bands of all time.

In 2005, Twice Removed was named the best Canadian album ever.

One of the best Canadian bands of all time – who released the best Canadian album ever – playing at noon in a tent on Sunday.

They follow a local band that won a contest.

I never wanted to hold you back, I just wanted to hold on

Suppose that a beloved artist/band announces that they will release a new album the day after Election Day, but only if their chosen candidate wins. Otherwise, the album will be destroyed. Let's assume that the promise is made with enough time to register to vote. Who would have the most influence? Who has the most voting-age fans who give enough of a shit to register and make it to the polls, but not enough of a shit to respect the democratic process? Beyoncé?

Beyoncé. I can't even think of anyone who would come close. Every white girl in her twenties would go fleeing to the polls, which would give the Democratic candidate a significant boost in terms of voter turnout.

In fact, if I were the Democratic candidate, I would do exactly this. I would set up a Super PAC and funnel $10 million to Beyoncé (do Super PACs work like that? Probably not), and then I would ask her to make a video to be released on midnight of Election Day, but it only gets released if I win (provided Beyoncé agrees with my liberal pledge to give every American a free puppy and institute a tax on misspelled web comments). Then I would sweep the coastal states, carry the Midwest, defeat the GOP, and Beyoncé would unleash a five-minute video of herself dancing with a chair and singing WAY too fast, and people would lose their goddamn minds. That's the kind of modern electioneering you have to look forward to in 2016. [source]

The Smiths. Sweep the Latino vote.

Boring. All right.

Wooden Wisdom should tour with Macauley Culkin's band – The Good Son Tour.
