From the producer of Transparent, Jill Soloway, comes a web series created by comedian Jessie Kahnweiler, and it looks freaking dopppppe. Jessie plays Jessie, an aspiring YouTube star, a feminist, and a bulimic. The trailer portrays Jessie as the kind of gal who takes our anxieties out, rather than keeping them in. You’ll see what I mean while watching her crazy antics in the trailer. She’s definitely outspoken, and it’s pretty awesome.
“I’m so sick of asking chubby white men with fucking man buns for permission to be myself,” she shouts at two dudes in the opening to the trailer. This may be the best opening ever, and a truth rarely told. More »
When you think about it, what would really happen if you were left at home for the holidays as a little kid, and then tormented by two thieves? You’d probably be traumatized for the rest of your life, if not for years after. In actuality Home Alone would have made a great horror film. Well the new web series, :DRYVRS isn’t horror, but the episode “Just Me In The House By Myself,” gives Home Alone a whole new, darker spin.
The series is about a character named Jack Dishel and all the drivers he meets through a ride-sharing app (inspired by Uber and Lyft). In the first episode, Macaulay Culkin plays his Home Alone character as a skittish adult who can’t drive, and ends up re-telling Jack that famous story of his childhood. More »
And away she goes ...
On Valentine’s Day, Courtney Love used her new You Tube channel to share love advice with the world. Today, we get to check out episode 1 of her webseries #CournteyOn wherein she talks a bit about the libel suit brought against her for a tweet she posted back in 2010. This “twibel” case went to a jury trial and Courtney won her case. For her webseries, she released a video that runs slightly longer than one minute to discuss her case in very little detail. I don’t understand why this video is so short, surely she had enough material to give us a video that was at least 5-10 minutes long but … 1 minute is all we get. If you have the time and inclination, you can watch the entirety of this webisode of #CourtneyOn in the embed above. I’m hoping that future eps of the series will be a bit longer and lot more substantial. I guess we’ll see.
Last month we learned that Courtney Love launched her own You Tube channel because she plans on producing her own webseries. Last week, we got our first look what Courtney‘s new webseries #CourtneyOn will look like. On Valentine’s Day, Courtney participated in a Google+ Hangout where she doled out love advice to three lucky ladies. That hangout has been added to C. Love‘s You Tube channel and you can watch it in full above. It really looks like Courtney is going to make a serious go at utilizing her You Tube channel. And I have to say, she gave the ladies some really good advice. Check out the video and see what you think of #CourtneyLove On Love.
Just a taste

Last night on the online-only aftershow of the Bravo TV late night talk show Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen officiated a same-sex wedding for a very cute couple LIVE for the whole world to see. I watch WWHL as it airs on Bravo but I don’t ever log on to watch the aftershow … so sadly, I missed seeing this live last night. Thankfully, Bravo has shared the video so that we can watch video of Daniel Cunningham and Ricardo Santiago gettin’ hitched right here, right now … and as many times as we like to our hearts’ content. Watch the video embedded above to see how adorable this little wedding ceremony turned out. Even tho there were a few jokes tossed in, the whole ceremony was really heartfelt and very very sweet. Congrats Daniel and Ricardo! Here’s to a very long, healthy and happy life together :)
OMG, This is going to be GOOD!
Now that neither Amanda Bynes nor Paris Jackson need her help, it looks like Courtney Love has moved on to undertake other endeavors. As you may know, Courtney is planning to release a memoir at some point but before her book hits stores, she has decided to launch her very own You Tube channel. As you can see in the video embedded above, it would appear that C. Love is ready to bring her unique take on the world directly to fans straight from her own mouth on You Tube. Courtney refers to a “f*cking web series” so it’s likely that individual webisodes will be released on her channel. Click the video above to see the newly posted announcement video then click below for a more detailed explanation from Love herself of what this new You Tube channel will be all about. More »
