That didn't take long. This frustrated father took to YouTube for some unconventional parenting, and instantly other teens to started screeching about how he's a fascist and that Internet is a right, not a privilege.
Kevin Smith has a new reality series on AMC called "Comic Book Men." It's pretty much "Mallrats" meets "Pawn Stars" meets "High Fidelity." Haven't heard of it yet? Here's everything you need to know before the series premieres on Sunday.
Winter is coming. Well, it's February so I guess winter is actually already here. But the second season of "Game Of Thrones" is coming, and that's way more exciting than winter anyway.
If you are talking about any other animal at the moment you are talking about the wrong animal. Here is why you need to get with the sloth program while there is still time.
Ahhh!!!!! This makes me cringe. So awkward.
You can't take Roseanne anywhere these days! Plus, Travis Barker's baby is already crowd surfing, Eric Wareheim and Har Mar Superstar hang out, and Cher can't log onto Twitter, so Kathy Griffin will send her updates instead.
It's a comforting comparison, but an inaccurate one.
This seems kind of dangerous to me.
It's a veritable "Breaking Bad" buffet. Okay, technically, these are probably the raw ingredients from which those 15 tons of meth were made. Still...wow.
A number of news outlets were burned by the apparently false story that Michelle Obama, Qatar's Sheikha Moza, and other famous women spent thousands on lingerie. But while The Telegraph apologizes at great length to the Qatari Sheikha, there's no apology to Obama.
Though, to be honest, is there anything as crushing as being unfriended on Facebook?
This is it! The proof we've been waiting for that non-indigenous life forms have visited Mars.
Awwww, maybe this divorce won't end in the feuding disaster the media so hopes for. Also, distressing photos released for "Game of Thrones" new season and your cat is trying to kill you. These and other Buzz that slipped under the radar await your clicking pleasure.
The Congressman is a fan. "I've read all your books!"
The new line of shirts feature Cartman, Butters, and Randy Marsh stark naked with the words "Protect Your Largest Organ" on their lower half (perfectly aligned to hide their nether-regions). You and I both know that Matt Stone and Trey Parker wouldn't lend their precious characters for just any ol' reason, and they aren't: the tees will benefit skin cancer research.
Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, who died Friday, took great pride in responding to every email he was sent, despite the fact that he doesn't use a computer. How did Ed Koch do it? His assistant printed them all out and he wrote his responses on the emails by hand. Here are 13 longhand emails defending the President, provided to BuzzFeed by Koch in 2012.
Bunny bathtime is the new hot thing. All the bunnies are doing it nowadays because it is very good for their public profile.
Too bad it's not a whippet, because that joke writes itself. Here's an Italian greyhound in bondage gear from the Vice Magazine Doggie Fashion Show. Now I wanna be your dog, indeed.
You ever want to use your phone while on the street but don't because you'll run into people/walls/cars? Please, like embarrassment or death will stop us from checking Facebook. But at least now we'll see it coming.
President Obama has long positioned himself as a moderate figure. But in 2000 during his failed run against Rep. Bobby Rush he discussed being similar in political viewpoint to the former Black Panther Congressman and described himself as "progressive urban Democrat." The video from their debate below and the three radio ads offer a sense of Obama's pitch to a very different electorate.
A meeting with Skull and Bones. Shhhh!
Drugs? Depravity? Inbreeding? Elitism? Allgeyer isn't sure, but he does know the judges who ruled in favor of same-sex marriage are delusional. Call in the EPA!
Get off the ice, you fool! If Odessa, Ukraine, is suddenly leveled by an unexplained force, I'm not saying it was a sea monster...but it was a sea monster.
They exist and they are endorsing Joe the Plumber.
Today in jokes about abuse: The editors of Times Of India, the world's most circulated English language newspaper, apparently decided that this sparkling piece of wit about Chris Brown was a perfect fit for their funny pages.
So you're telling me that the "Stay Puft" monster in "Ghostbusters" was only 100 feet tall and that the "Cloverfield" monster comes in at 180 feet? Suddenly an attack by monsters on New York City seems like much less of a "Dooms Day" scenario.
Warning it may cause seizures. That's not hyperbole. There's actually an epilepsy warning before the video. So unless constant strobing lights and/or the films of Gaspar Noe have no effect on you, you should be careful.
"Yes, 100 percent yes," Showalter told Andy Cohen on last night's "Watch What Happens Live" (of all places) in regards to a sequel to the movie. You may now commence celebrations.
This is the way the world ends. And this is what you get.
In 1991 Steve Jobs was being considered for a position in George HW Bush's Administration. Today the FBI released the record of their investigation into Jobs' background and the rest of the late Apple CEO's FBI file. These are the most interesting tidbits.
Despite the slightly absurd business model, these photos are very beautiful and moving. Here are images from the funeral of Robert Sanders, held at California's only drive-through funeral home.
The man can do no wrong.
His name is Rip, and the cat's name is Dusty, FYI. I can't tell from his expression whether he's annoyed about being put into a suit or just idly wondering whether it mightn't be time for a nice cup of tea and some digestive biscuits.
Although, he seems to be missing his cane. Looks like it's another decoy, boys.
Ron Paul's not coming to the conservative gathering this year even though he was offered a keynote speaking role. the campaign says it's because of scheduling, but he hasn't been campaigning since Tuesday.
Try not to cry. Watch Representative Maureen Walsh's moving testimony from yesterday's gay marriage vote in Washington. Rep. Walsh was one of two Republicans to vote for the bill.
The official playlist that will play during all crowd events during the Obama 2012 campaign hit internet today and, wouldn't you know it, the list is filled with great songs. The track listing ranges all over: from the classics (Al Green, Areatha Franklin, James Taylor); to Indie bands (The Arcade Fire, Wilco, Noah And The Whale); to Country (Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker); and rounds out the mix with some universally-loved songs like ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky." In other words, it's a crowd-pleasing soundtrack that virtually anybody can -- and will -- enjoy.
I think this may be a wee bit of an overreaction. Chicago held a competition among the city's youth to design a sticker that would appear in the windshields of all city vehicles. 15-year-old Herbert Pulgar won that competition, but then had the honor yanked from him when a blogger pointed out possible gang-related imagery. Or, y'know, it could just be a heartfelt tribute to emergency responders from a kid.
What happens when a Stanford grad and a Harvard grad become teammates in the NBA? This Milhouse of a handshake. (Note: This is a compliment. I love Milhouse.)
This chart tracks the four-week moving average of initial jobless claims, beginning in January of 2008. And while the economy isn't booming, it's a vivid illustration that the labor market has, on Obama's watch, been healing.
It's funny when a band is ostensibly more famous for who isn't a part of the band than who is. For the last year or so, Earl Sweatshirt has been missing from the rap collective Odd Future's line-up, apparently attending a academy in Samoa at his mother's will (he was under 18 at the time). Well, he's back.
Ten years ago, then Cardinal of New York Edward Egan issued a public apology for the Church's role in sex abuse cases. Yesterday the now retired Egan retracted that apology saying that he never dealt with a case of abuse.
Rick Santorum now plays down his 2008 endorsement of Mitt Romney, casting it as a vote for "anyone but McCain." During his 2006 run for Senate, however, he was proudly listing McCain endorsement on his website. The video is no longer available, but here's the transcript which is still online via the Web Archive.
Oh SNAP! Make sure you watch till the end.
Adviser Hogan Gidley, talking to MSNBC's Alex Wagner, buys our contention that the Romney Death Star is circling. He casts his candidate as Luke Skywalker, and backer Foster Friess as Chewbacca.
These are people who enjoy dressing up like Mortal Kombat characters and dancing to rave music in the park. Now imagine seeing that on a picnic.
Foster Friess, the little known, deep-pocketed businessman bankrolling Rick Santorum's SuperPAC, operates his own YouTube channel. The channel offers a glimpse into the man who kept Santorum's campaign on life support, then funded his resurgence.
As many Catholics, including John Boehner, are outraged over the new rule that religious-affiliated organizations must cover birth control in their health care plans, NBC's Luke Russert tweeted about how birth control is perceived by many students at Catholic universities. Though anecdotal, his experience is interesting.
