Here’s How Natasha Lyonne Just Became My Favorite Actress

Listen, Natasha Lyonne is flat-out compelling in Orange is the New Black. That’s neither here nor there. What is here and there is her spot-on effluent praise of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard in last week’s Entertainment Weekly. To wit: An RIP ODB lip tattoo? You shittin’ me? Ain’t no publicist in the world that…

An Open Letter To The Robin Hood Dell Music Center

Sup? Listen, I know y’all tucked away off Philly’s beaten path and all, but that doesn’t give you any right to insult the New Edition legacy — namely that of founding member Michael Bivins — by spelling the “Biv” of Bell Biv Devoe as “Bov.” An apology, you owe us all. Because, quite frankly, Bell…

Hey Look, Another Jitbag Wishes I Died Because I Post YouTube Fight Videos On Deadspin

Yep. There’s such a solid parallel between morons who post fight videos on YouTube and criminals who hit people with their cars and flee the scene. Thank God this online commenter is there to remind us that faulty logic still thrives behind the toughness of anonymity!

Are South Jersey Investigators Closing In On The Real A.C.-Prostitute Serial Killer?

First saw a reference to this on a Facebook post from Atlantic City defense attorney Jimmy Leonard. Later, @Domelights in Philly Tweeted a link. So, that combo warranted a post.

When I was editing weekends on Deadspin, there was a regular feature called This Week In Unintentional Dong Submissions in which readers/tipsters/dongsters sent in images of things that unintentionally looked like dongs. It was fun. Anyway, when I sifted through Boston Magazine’s collection of photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pre-capture — which were released in response…

NBC Reporter In NYC Shows Random People Video Of A Masturbating Bus Driver

Listen, I don’t like the thought of masturbating bus drivers anymore than the next guy, gal or seeing-eye dog. Which is to say that NBC New York’s exposé about a batin’ NJ Transit bus driver served a valuable public service. (Money shot: “Is that what I think it is?” at the video’s 1:48 mark.) But…

Here’s The Best Ian Ziering Moment From SharkNado That Didn’t Involve A Chainsaw

Volumes will be written about bloodshed and heroism, the resuscitation of Tara Reid, and the societal and scientific ramifications of SyFy’s instant-classic SharkNado. Every word of it deserving of the public record. An in-depth examination is warranted, one that lasts for years to come. But let that historical record clearly reflect the Shaka sign that…

Watch This 20-Year-Old Michigan Lady Try To Hire A Hitman To Kill Her Husband

Julia Charlene Merfeld, who pleaded guilty last month to an April murder solicitation, tried getting her man offed because “it’s easier than divorcing him.” Well, yeah, it probably is if you strip morality and criminality out of the equation! She must never have seen Divorce Court. Anyway, here’s the video: “Being able to see it,…
