Government shutdown: The best late-night and celeb reactions

Faster than you can say “meme,” the Internet was aflutter with commentary on today’s government shutdown. Ranging from the angry to the silly to the tweetable, here are the best reactions:

The best late-night government roasting (in addition to Stewart and Colbert’s “Rockin’ Government Shutdown Eve“): “Our government may be shutting down in a few hours. So folks, get ready for absolutely no noticeable difference,” Conan O’Brien said on Monday’s Conan. “All this drama is very confusing to all the hookers in D.C. They don’t know whether they have to go to work tomorrow either,” Arsenio Hall said on The Arsenio Hall Show.

Alec Baldwin gets touchy with his wife -- in yoga video

Yoga Journal lists 38 benefits of regular yoga practice — including improved flexibility, increased strength, and better lymph drainage (which, eww).

Nowhere on the list is “a decreased desire to write expletive-filled homophobic tweets” — but perhaps Alec Baldwin will discover that as a side perk.

As Vanity Fair revealed yesterday, Baldwin has a cameo in Fit Mommy-to-Be Prenatal Yoga, an upcoming fitness DVD starring his wife Hilaria. (She gave birth to their daughter, Carmen Gabriela, in August.) “I did most of my yoga on my own, but he definitely helped me out,” the yogi explained to VF. “Aches and pains are a normal part of pregnancy, and he was really great at helping me alleviate them through yoga stretches.”

He’s also really great at staring stoically before grunting an awkward response to his wife’s “thank you.” Watch below; you might even learn something!

Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel: Real or fake? POLL

Kanye-Kimmel.jpg

Nothing is certain in this post-Twerk-Fail world – which may be why Kanye West’s furious Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism. The Associated Press puts it best with this headline: “Kimmel and Kanye West Are at War — Or Are They?”

Let’s examine the facts. First and foremost, Kimmel is a notorious prankster known for tricking passersby with his regular “Lie Witness News” segments, encouraging Emmy viewers to convince the Twittersphere that Tracy Morgan had passed out onstage, and challenging parents to pretend they’ve eaten all their children’s Halloween candy. More importantly, Kanye’s “anger” comes just weeks after Kimmel pulled off his greatest practical joke yet: Convincing the news media and the Internet at large that a girl had actually set herself on fire while trying to twerk.

So if any other celebrity picked a big, public feud with Kimmel, we could be pretty certain that the whole thing was a stunt and nothing more. With Kanye West, though, things are just a bit more complicated.

Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

'Mr. Magorium' director thinks his movie is 'the perfect hell' for Walter White

Never before has our “That Was Way Harsh, Tai” tag seemed more appropriate.

As you may remember, last week’s penultimate episode of Breaking Bad found Walt relocated to a remote, spartan New Hampshire cabin. One of his hideout’s few sources of entertainment was a TV set only good for playing DVDs — and the cabin’s film collection left much to be desired.

Its highlight: Two copies of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, a movie rewarded with a solid F by EW’s Owen Gleiberman upon its 2007 release. (Sample line: “Mr. Magorium, who is 243 years old (so are his jokes), is a cross between Willy Wonka and Geppetto, but [Dustin] Hoffman plays him with little more than a goofy dumb lisp, achieved by tucking his lower lip under his upper teeth, so that he looks just as rabbity-stoopid as he sounds.”)

Here’s the real punchline, though: You know who else hates Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium? Screenwriter Zach Helm — who doubles as the creator and director of Mr. Magorium himself.

E L James launches 'Fifty Shades of Grey' wine

If you read and/or are reading Fifty Shades of Grey completely sober, you might be doing it wrong (unless you’re under 21). And if you read and/or are reading it with a beer in your hand, well then you’re definitely doing it wrong (especially if you’re under 21). Fifty Shades of Grey is to be read with a glass of wine in your of-age hand. At least, that’s what we learned from E L James’ latest project. More specifically, it’s meant to be read with a glass of Fifty Shades wine in your hand.
