Tim Heidecker on the Tim & Eric Tour and New Show ‘Bedtime Stories’: “We Were Inspired by ‘Louie'”

Flavorwire

Tim & Eric know when to move along — literally and figuratively. Throughout their ten years on Adult Swim, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have created three different shows — Tom Goes to the Mayor, Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule — with varying formats and characters, but always featuring their signature mix of deadpan, satire, and gross-out/surrealist humor. Later this month, they’ll debut their fourth Adult Swim series, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, but they hit the road this week for a look back at Awesome Show with a North American tour alongside Dr. Steve Brule (i.e., John C. Reilly’s greatest role).

Update: Big Changes at Turner Broadcasting – Will They Affect TCM?

I used to watch TCM here in Canada awhile ago when Shaw Cable used to run it, plus a few other channels, hope Turner doesn’t turn the network into another AMC.

cinematically insane

osborneUPDATE 8/29/14 9 a.m. (ET) 

The departures are beginning at Turner, with the announcement that TNT, TBS and TCM programming chief Michael Wright would be leaving the company after a decade.

Original Post – 8/27/14

According to Nielsen, the average U.S. household receives 189 TV channels, but regularly watches only 17 of them. If you’re an Old Movie Weirdo, however, that number may be closer to one: Turner Classic Movies.

TCM is the only U.S. TV channel airing classic films 24 hours per day, uncut, commercial-free, and in their original, theatrical aspect ratio. As such, viewers (like this one) tend to support the 20-year-old network with near-religious zealotry. And TCM returns the favor, connecting with audience members through an annual film festival, cruise, sightseeing bus tours, monthly magazine, specialty home video releases, original documentaries, and brilliantly curated programming, which has extended from a single, linear channel to multiple streaming and on-demand…

10 Things People Need to Be Protesting Instead of Adult Swim’s Black Jesus

Black Atheists

This blog post is mostly in response to this.

I’ve noticed something recently. What I noticed was the lack of boycotts and protests from people about important things. There’s this huge uproar about a new show on Adult Swim called Black Jesus. Everything was quiet – considering – in the world of religion until Black Jesus aired yesterday. What’s sad is people don’t need the government to distract us from important things, all it takes is a show on Adult Swim called Black Jesus to do that.

Well here’s a list of things people [especially black people] should be pissy about!

Number 1: Churches

Need I say more? They’re tax exempt. Why do you think you see so many of them on one street in your neighborhood? A hole in the wall can become a church and all you need to do is buy the building and call it…

I’m still learning to use WordPress, I will probably not do a post blog all the time and not every day as I thought I would, I’m just discovering I can reblog and like other WordPress posts, also I need to learn how to follow other people.

The Difficulties of Wanting to Write in Times of Distractions ( Good and Bad, Mainly Bad, Though )

I love to write, ever since as a schoolgirl, writing was my life, poetry, lampoons, short stories, you name it. In my twenties, I started to keep a diary, or rather diaries, I was writing in my apartment, I was writing in coffehouses and cafes, I was even writing in mall food courts, at the time, I was not bothered by distractions, maybe the odd fight or kids running wild without parental supervision or some sad person bawling, but for the most part, I was immersed in my writings, nowadays, now that I am older and undergoing the menopause and mood swings thing, I don’t have that ability anymore, I have to have the perfect moment and environment to put down words, my mind has to be at peace, the enviroment has to be silent or have some non distracting sounds, though, luckily tonight, as I sit here at the Starbucks Coffee inside the Indigo Bookstore with my Galaxy Tab tablet and drinking Caffe Espresso Frappucino tonight listening to a couple of kids screaming and running around the bookstore,  I actually can write this blog post without being so rudely interrupted and losing my train of thought, hey, maybe I haven’t lost that magic after all, or perhaps, it was just pure luck and the next time, I won’t be so lucky, who knows?

Women Who are Ambivalent about Women Against Women Against Feminism

Right on!

The Bloggess

So...yeah.  Right now there’s a lot of talk about a tumblr called WomenAgainstFeminism.  It’s just pictures of some women holding up handwritten signs entitled “I don’t need feminism because...”  Some of the reasons they give for not needing feminism almost seem like a parody (“How the fuck am I suppose to open jars and lift heavy things without my husband?”) and some (“I don’t need to grow out my body hair to prove I’m equal to men”) just make me wonder where in the world they got their definition of feminism.

At first I considered starting my own “I Don’t Need _____ Because” tumblr with people holding equally baffling signs.  Signs like:

I don’t need books because YOU KNOW WHO WROTE BOOKS?  HITLER.  HITLER WROTE A BOOK.  NO THANK YOU, NAZIS.

I don’t need money BECAUSE I HAVE A CHECKBOOK, ASSHOLE.

I don’t need air because LOTS OF IT…
