Open Post: Hosted By The Man In England Who Got Abs Tattooed Onto His Stomach

March 9, 2023 / Posted by:

Long gone are the days when winter and spring mean putting your summer body on layaway by spending countless hours in the gym. Who has time for that when there are delicious carbs to be eaten and thousands of different beers to consume? This is most certainly the thought process of one man who reached out to Manchester-based tattoo artist Dean Gunther asking to have a set of ripped abdominal muscles immortalized onto his pale, fluffy tummy to avoid the responsibility of health and fitness. And of course, Dean was happy to take his money and mar his skin for the rest of his life.

The Oscars Will Cut 8 Awards From The Live Telecast To Try To Boost Ratings

February 23, 2022 / Posted by:

Last year, at the 2021 Academy Awards, a history-making moment happened in the Makeup and Hairstyling category, when for the first time ever two Black women won in that category (for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom). But if there was to be another significant win in that category this year, we’ll only hear about it after the fact. Because the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided that the audience at home doesn’t need to see the winners of a whole eight categories, Makeup and Hairstyling being one of them, and they’re shuffling those eight award categories out of the broadcast lineup.

“The Activist” Is No Longer A Reality Competition Show, But A Documentary Special

September 16, 2021 / Posted by:

CBS finally realized that their idea for a Shark Tank-style competition show for humanitarians was a shitty one. I’m shocked. If only there was a charity out there that could help me with the rehabilitation needed to recover from this news. But I’ll have to wait to see if any such charity is mentioned in the upcoming documentary The Activist: This Was A Terrible Idea For A Reality Show.

“Cops” Is Back After Being Canceled Last Year

September 13, 2021 / Posted by:

Last June, in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter protests, the Paramount Network canceled Cops after 32 seasons. Phew, right? Sigh, wrong. The streaming service Fox Nation (a spin-off from Fox News, but of course) just announced that they’re dragging Cops back from hell; they’ve picked it up for a 33rd season, and it will premiere on October 1. So let me get this straight: we permanently lost canceled-too-soon classics like GLOW, Happy Endings, and Santa Clarita Diet (OK, “classic” is a strong word for that last one, but it was… fine), but they bring back Cops? COPS?!?!

California Theme Parks, Including Disneyland, Are Allowed To Reopen On April Fools’ Day (But With Restrictions) 

March 6, 2021 / Posted by:

As Coronavirus puts on its cowboy hat and chaps and gets ready to do the two-step up into mouth and nose holes (to the tune of Achy Breaky Lungs) when Texas completely reopens on March 10, California has announced that its easing up on its COVID-19 restrictions. The Los Angeles Times says that thanks to CA Governor Gavin Newsom’s newly updated four-tier “Blueprint For A Safter Economy” safety plan, stadiums, outdoor ball-playing places, and theme parks can reopen on April 1 as long as the county they’re in is in the red tier for coronavirus cases. But they’ll only be able to operate at a limited capacity and everyone has to wear a mask. You still won’t see me at Disneyland anytime soon, but with that being said, I can’t wait to see the cell phone videos of Goofy and Daisy Duck holding back Donald Duck as he tries to fight a stupid trick who refuses to wear a mask.

Cardi B Is Sorry For Hosting A 37-Person Thanksgiving Party In The Middle Of A Pandemic

November 30, 2020 / Posted by:

Thanksgiving looked a little different this year, because, for the first time in ages, the fighting wasn’t over politics or who had to sit on the card table chair with the wonky leg (at least not more than usual). Mostly the biggest fight was whether you would be having a safe CDC-approved celebration at home, or whether you were going to gather at Aunt Janet’s house three states away and swap airborne germs in the dining room with your relatives. That second option might end up putting a whole lot of grandpas and grandmas on ventilators so naturally there’s been some side-eyeing of people who threw huge family gatherings on turkey day. Like Cardi B, who hosted more than three dozen people at her place, despite being told by health professionals to not do that. Well, guess what, Cardi is now sorry for doing that.
