'30 Rock': Jack Attack

Oh, Elizabeth Lemon. Don’t you worry. You’re not the only one following the rules of being a human being. But since I live in New York City, too, I totally feel your pain. And perhaps NYC is overrated. During last night’s “The Tuxedo Begins,” Jack and Liz were debating this very issue. Liz was irritated that everyone around her seemed to be incapable of following the simple rules of living. (You let the people out of the subway car before you enter. Come on!)

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 3 query: Can Sharon Needles' domination be stopped? Vote in our poll!

Just let the above screengrab wash over you for a second: It’s simply sickening Sharon Needles realness from last night’s new episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, titled “Glamazons vs. Champions.”

Be honest: Have you ever laid your eyes on such magnificence in your life? Yes, you definitely are seeing quadruple images of the self-described “spooky, beautiful, and stupid” queen serving demented versions of Cruella de Vil and Marilyn Manson. And it’s amazing.

Sharon is pictured here because the biggest outcome from last night’s episode was, indeed, that Needles has solidified her place as a force to be reckoned with on the show — despite drawing the ire of other contestants (we’re looking at you, Phi Phi). SPOILER ALERT: The dark-and-twisty queen took home the crown in the infomercial-themed challenge, a mere two weeks after she pulled off the same feat in the show’s season 4 premiere.

Watch 'American Idol' contestant Symone Black fall off the stage -- VIDEO

It’s a terrible headline and a terrible request for the use of your time. But if you’re as frustrated as I just was after Fox teased the heck out of one contestant’s impressive Hollywood Week stage-to-floor story arc — only to let our DVR recordings get brutally cut off by a bump for new series Mobbed — you can watch 16-year-old Symone Black fall off the stage here.

Don’t expect to find out whether she lives or dies! You’ll just have to tune in tomorrow.

I’m such a deeply loathsome creature right now, and yet I’m only trying to help. READ FULL STORY

Josh Hutcherson's ‘Hunger Games’ prank makes Jennifer Lawrence pee her pants, Capitol not pleased

At this point, we’ll take just about any Hunger Games news we can get, right?

In an interview with Vulture, Josh Hutcherson revealed that he pranked costar Jennifer Lawrence on the set of The Hunger Games – perhaps to an unfortunate degree. “I took a dummy, one that the tracker-jackers were supposed to have attacked, and I put it in Jennifer’s bathroom,” said Hutcherson, 19. “When she opened the door, she peed her pants. Or so I was told – she told me later. I did not get visual confirmation on that one.” READ FULL STORY

'Lana Del Rey's Hunger Games': Amazing. -- VIDEO

Does this image just piss you off so much??? (I felt dirty making it, but the “crowd reacting to subject in horror” motif just worked so well.) Then maybe you don’t want to watch a double parody of The Hunger Games and Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” as performed by Second City comedian Holly Laurent. But you should anyway, because it’s hilarious. READ FULL STORY

Holy Ron Swanson! First annual moustache film festival to be held in March

This spring… all hair will break loose.

The creators of Stache Pag (as in pageant) are inviting mustachioed filmmakers of all shapes and styles to participate in the world’s first film festival devoted entirely to facial hair, the 2012 Stache Film Fest.

The festival, which will be held at Port City Music Hall in Portland, Maine on March 30, is being organized by No Umbrella Media, which described itself as “a group of mustachioed men who… are constantly caressing our moustaches and daydreaming of ways to better celebrate moustaches and maximize the moustache man’s moment of expression.” And it’s no joke: the organization’s head, Nick Callanan, has been running Stache Pag for five years, where he’s seen the number of participants grow from 40 to just under 500.

“The response has been pretty incredible,” Callanan (who himself has a moustache every winter) told EW. “We’ve already gotten submissions from three continents, and the open call has only been ongoing for a few weeks. We’ve seen a good response so far – Norway, The Netherlands, Mexico, California.”

In January Callanan released a Call to Moustache Action, which features “American Moustache Institute representative and international moustache celebrity Dr. Lou Jacobs,” below: READ FULL STORY

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 2 query: Was 'WTF' one of the most outrageous challenges ever?

Drag-race-wrestling

Over three seasons, we’ve seen boatloads of lunacy on RuPaul’s Drag Race: Everything from dresses made from dollar bills and egregious shoulder flair to huge, raging queens that throw other contestants around and futuristic get-ups that look like they were ripped from the 2050 version of Cats. Last night’s episode, “WTF!: Wrestling’s Trashiest Fighters,” was centered around a ridiculous WWF-inspired challenge, which was pretty nuts and begs the question: Was this one of the series’ most outrageous challenges ever?

For sure. I think last night’s new episode will majestically go down in Drag Race history with those memorable hours mentioned above, as the 12 remaining queens found themselves putting together drag wrestling looks and then putting on an outlandish, drama-filled show for the judges — something they’ve never done before. “Tonight,” RuPaul told the gals before the main challenge, “you’ll be transforming yourself into wrestling’s trashiest fighters.” Yes: WTF. (Ru, your cleverness is always appreciated.)

All the evidence you need of last night’s challenge brilliance is in this post: Just look at the capture of Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels — excuse me, Latrice the Beast and Killer Kenya. It…is…beyond! These ladies really killed it the crazy department, putting on a show that kept me cackling all night. “Yesterday,” Ru dramatically told all the ladies after the challenge, “you changed the face of professional wrestling forever. I smell a spin-off!” WTF, indeed! It just seems devastating that such a spectacular pair — Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels — didn’t win the challenge.

It’s an important milestone in any doughy young boy or doll’s life. Watch American Idol season 10 standout Casey Abrams (have his dad) shave his beard after the jump. Then tell me what frustrates you more — the kid’s complete inability to groom himself or his neglect to put Haley Reinhart on speakerphone?!

Why did M.I.A. flip the bird during the Super Bowl? -- POLL

We may never know why pharaoh bitch goddess M.I.A. gave us the middle finger while performing Madonna’s new single “Give Me All Your Luvin'” during the Super Bowl half-time show. It’s probably Gisele Bundchen’s fault. But we’ve got to get to the bottom of this. If you don’t agree with our educated guesses, tell us your own theories in the comments. READ FULL STORY

Seeing Super Bowl ads before the Super Bowl: Wrong? Or wrong and un-American?

For people who do not love football — or only care about football when their team or teams are playing, and their team or teams didn’t even make the playoffs this year — the only reason to watch the Super Bowl is to watch the ads. We’ve shushed our friends and loved ones as the Super Bowl logo has swooshed across the screen ushering in a new ad break. We’ve laughed, cried, and jeered as each 30-to-60 second spot played, instantly debating its humor and effectiveness: “I loved the part when Betty White got tackled!” “Ed McMahon shilling for gold-related websites makes me sad.” “Wazzzzuuuuuuuuup!” We’ve talked far more about animated polar bears and honorable Clydesdales and adorable mini-Darth Vaders the next day than practically any touchdown pass or option play. This is all such an integral part of what it means to be an American — nay, to be a citizen of this planet we call Earth — that I think it was retroactively written into the Constitution, Magna Carta, and Plato’s Republic.

Of course, I have been spending the last week or so quivering with outrage, so I could be exaggerating just a twinge. Because, as of this writing, at least 38 Super Bowl ads have already been released on the Internet, either as they’ll air tonight, as a quick snippet teaser, or in an extended form. And. That. Is. Just. WRONG. READ FULL STORY
