Why isn't this a television show?

Idea: Stage a music festival in an abandoned shopping mall. It's like a bunch of music venues in one – an enclosed SXSW. Vacant department stores are the main stages and stand-alone stores side stages.

What if you were the only person in Las Vegas?

Oculus Rift Software Idea: Wander around a deserted Las Vegas Strip – not a post-apocalyptic Vegas, but Vegas as is in 2014.

You know rock is dead when 311, Foster the People, and Avicii are headlining modern rock radio station festivals.

"Dress to go to a punk rock concert circa 2003."

3½. Pretend that Ben Weasel hasn't publicly punched a woman in the face

What is the logic behind this combination? Saturday Night Live alums who were available?

I feel like Dana Carvey should be replaced with Norm Macdonald, or Dennis Miller with someone gentler, like Tim Meadows.

Would you rather see Victoria Jackson, Dennis Miller, and Rob Schneider in one night, or Adam Sandler in Africa?

Blame it on the Tetons

Goat Simulator is a video game in which the player controls a goat. There does not appear to be any kind of storyline or plot. The player is free to explore the game's world as a goat, destroying things in the environment, running, jumping, and licking.

"Goat Simulator is like an old school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff," explained the game's creators. [source]

Oh, and it features a goat Iron Throne.

Sitting on the Infernal Throne turns the goat into King of the Goats and gives him the ability to "summon peasants" which makes goats rain from the skies.

What other big name features can we expect on your upcoming album besides Wiz Khalifa?
I've spoken already with Juvenile. I'm in talks right now with DMX and MGK. I spoke a little bit with E-40. I already got John Cena on two tracks.

Oh no…

"Untitled Billy Corgan Wrestling Project"

Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan pulls back the curtains on the pro-wrestling world as he takes over creative direction for the independent wrestling company Resistance Pro.

Oh brother…

WWE pulls back the curtains.

Let's look at the cast of the Turkish adaptation of The Sopranos!

Melfi, AJ, Meadow, Tony, Carmela, Janice?, Junior, Christopher

Interesting that its producers cast actors who resemble the American cast.

Related: The Colombian adaptation of Breaking Bad

Idea: A supercut of Colombian Walter Jr. reaction shots (0:27, 4:49).

You owe me a life

A play on a 13-year-old Nelly song was the winning ad campaign? Which agency conceived it? Cool Dads and Partners?

Is General Mills trying to make Honey Nut Cheerios the Sprite of cereals – the Sprite to plain Cheerios' Coca-Cola? Or did it just really love the slogan "must be the honey"?

All I see in Capital One's current ad is Alec Baldwin's chest hair.

Manifest destiny.

0:16 – Why does this dude leisurely swinging on a swing in his living room only have one second to talk? Where is he rushing off to in sandals?

I'm lower than the dirt with no roots left to find

They couldn't get all the Workaholics? I know Anders is on The Mindy Project, but the fuck is Blake doing that he can't go on a cruise?

My edits:
Nathan For You is Kendrick Lamar.
Freaks and Geeks is Tupac.
Chappelle's Show is Biggie.

Seems like he gets off on being a Dick, because otherwise, wouldn't you go by Rich, or Rick, or your middle name – Riley Fain?

Animal Farm

Where to begin?

Ted Allen on The Alton Browncast:

There was a pilot made for Chopped that never aired – I have a copy of it – in which the concept was very different. The original Chopped was set in a mansion. The host of the show was the butler of the mansion, in a tuxedo. The host would hold a chihuahua. The contestants would pull up in limousines. And, each course, when somebody was chopped, their food was fed to the chihuahua.
