Brick Still Can't Get It Together
We recently heard the best news ever– Kanye West has joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. I mean, c’mon. This is clearly going to be the greatest thing to hit the cinema since… Rust And Bone?! LMAO, but seriously. We have a new mini-trailer to check out and although Yeezy isn’t in it, it’s another great way to get us excited for the upcoming sequel. Peep the video above and watch Steve Carrell (AKA Brick) struggle with his catchphrase, yet again.
Plus, Jennifer Garner Gets The Oscar Dedication She Deserves
Earlier today we got to check out Kanye West‘s highly-anticipated performance on the season finale of Saturday Night Live, and it did not disappoint. Last night’s episode was also a big deal because Ben Affleck hosted and joined the Five Timer’s Club (though he didn’t quite get the Justin Timberlake-esque reception he’d hoped for), and Bill Hader AKA Stefon gave his final performance on the show. Check out Ben‘s opening monologue above, and click inside for a few more skits from last night! The Iranian Film skit was pretty good and of course Stefon’s Farewell (which included a cameo from Anderson Cooper) was hilarious.
Y'all Ain't Ready For The New Yeezy
We should all know by now that when Kanye West hits the stage we can pretty much expect the unexpected. However. I was still unprepared for his performances last night on Saturday Night Live. Yeezy performed New Slaves, which we heard yesterday after he debuted a video to the song in various locations across the world. And he also debuted a new track, Black Skinhead. I was just checking out the lyrics to Black Skinhead on DirectLyrics and I’m still trying to figure out exactly what he means by Black Skinhead… but maybe I’m trying too hard. What do y’all think of the new tracks? I loved his performances for both songs– visually it’s an experience, which is what Kanye is usually going for. Oh, and I was cracking the hell up while he tried to censor his own lyrics during his New Slaves performance– awesome!
Peep the videos for more! The Black Skinhead performance is inside.
"We don’t believe in defeat / that’s why we’re back for a threepeat"
Earlier this month we got our first listen of Jennifer Lopez‘s new single Live It Up, which features her BFF Pitbull on guest rap vocals and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Sigh. Jenny from the Block really tries to look cool in this video but most of the time I just keep thinking, Damn girl … stop trying so hard. The song is still pretty meh. for me but the video is OK, I guess. I imagine it will do well on video screens at danceclubs when this song, invariably, will be played for the next few months. Give it a look, see what you think. Does Jennifer Lopez still have what it takes deliver with these kinds of music videos anymore? You be the judge.
The TV Guide
Last night I met up with Emma and Josh for a little dinner/movie date after a few days of missed opportunities. Because the pair of them have an uncanny knack for picking excellent movies that most people never hear about, I decided to follow their lead and agree to see the new Sarah Polley documentary film Stories We Tell. As usual, they selected an excellent film for us to watch, even if the “doc” has a few flaws. All in all, I enjoyed the film but mostly, I enjoyed my night out with my fun BFFs. More »

"You are lost"
Back in April, Showtime released a video trailer for the upcoming 8th and final season of Dexter but today we get to see the show’s first official full length trailer. I’m not sure why the distinction but I’m happy for this release … because as you can see in the embed above, it looks like a whole lotta drama is headed our way in the coming season. This new 3 minute trailer gives us a very good feel for what to expect when the final season of Dexter debuts next month. Check out the trailer above and get excited, we are mere weeks from the start of a whole new season of Dexter … for one last time.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet Is Back At It!
EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
The Video Was Projected In Brooklyn, Toronto, And Other Cities
Kanye West is not playing around with this new album y’all. Rather than officially premiere his new single on Soundcloud, and then drop the visuals on Vevo or something, you know, normal, Yeezy premiered New Slaves last night across the world at various locations. We have visuals of the video being projected onto a building in Brooklyn last night. Check out the new video above and click inside for more about the project, and one more video.

Last week we learned that EPIX is planning to air Madonna‘s MDNA World Tour show on their network next month and today we get our first look at the first video teaser for the broadcast. The clip is short but sweet. If you saw the show, you’ll recognize some of the best parts of the show … if you haven’t seen the show, you’re gonna wanna tune in to EPIX on June 22. Maddy‘s MDNA show was pretty damn good, I’m actually looking forward to watching it all over again :D
