Star Wars parody videos never get old.

This is an oldie but still one of my favorites. And let’s be real, Luke deserves it.

Running a high school is rough

Dave and I are huge fans of Eastbound and Down, so you bet we’re pretty pumped for HBO’s new comedy series Vice Principals to air in July. The show stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins, and judging by this teaser, it looks pretty fucking funny.

Will augmented reality make us lose control?

Over the weekend, I had an opportunity to catch an advance screening of Creative Control, a film about an advertising executive’s foray into the world of augmented reality and the complications when he decides to have an “affair” with his buddy’s girlfriend using virtual reality. With VR being so timely, this is an interesting watch so you can ponder what technology may enable us to do really ridiculously soon. The cast features Benjamin Dickinson and Nora Zehetner with supporting actors that include Reggie Watts, Jake Lodwick, Heems and Gavin McInnes.

Maybe the most interesting part of the experience was that Dickinson and Watts were in the house for a lengthy Q&A and conversation that spilled into future technologies, capitalism, and why they chose to shoot in black in white. While you may not have opportunity, the film is good fodder for discussion with your pals.

Creative Control starts showing for reals on March 11th, starting in New York and Los Angeles.

Zoolander Instagram is so hot right now

I’m so looking forward to Zoolander 2 hitting screens February 12th and the Zoolander Instagram is killing it. Take a look below. Derek, you had me at Paris Fashion Week.

Guys. Over the course of my 3 hour relationship with Cara Delevingne i learned a lot about myself. I learned a relationship is like a beautiful bird. If there is love, it can take flight. But if the bird is caged, it begins to feel trapped, like as if it was in a cage. but then if someone is calling that bird “more washed up than a russians blue jeans” or “dumber than brie”, then the bird gets it’s feelings super hurt. But then if the bird tries to get one last french kiss goodbye, and the girl punches him right in the beak and then hits the bird with his selfie stick (which you can pay me for ANYTIME), then thats lame to do to the bird. THEN! THEN! She gets the bird in a half nelson and threatens to get a restraining odor, that’s super lame. Then she nearly broke the birds ARM! Which REALLY-REALLY HURT CARA!!!! Like you could have broken the birds WING! Anyway… I WILL triumph in all of this. Our relationship ended as it began. With all love, respect and now a deep mistrust for cara delvigne. Whoever that is. Call me when you get a modeling career. I could have HELPED YOU. You were too old for me anyways. Now I know everyone has my back, and the last thing I want is a flame war on my insta. I dont need the negativity. Like I said, it’s all love. But if you wanted to go hate on HER insta and leave comments on what a HUGE mistake she just made, and tell her I’m totally happy and never think about her all the time and am probably out boning liek a million models already here in Paris. Please feel free to do that. #Namaste. Switching my Raya location to #ROME tomorrow. See you soon @penelopecruzoficial 😘.

Dude’s got more soul than South Korea

Charles Bradley is a fucking inspiration. He didn’t have any fame until creating his first album in his 60s and has been touring strong ever since. His next album drops April Fool’s Day and if this Black Sabbath cover is any indication, it’s going to be great. His voice, his expressions. Isn’t that what soul is about?

If you ever want to feel the feels, watch the film about his life and be sure to make it to one of powerful performances.
