Happy ‘Parks and Recreation’ Day, guys!

Posted in happyyy, What's on the telly? with tags , , , , , , on January 20, 2011 by Nick Caruso

What’s on the telly, you ask? Why, Parks and Recreation, of course…finally!

Though way lame, NBC decided to shaft Parks to mid-season last year to make way for the new and absolutely despicable Outsourced. Although Outsourced is still in the running to become America’s Next Top Comedy, NBC did keep its word to our favorite Rec department, and for that, I commend them!

If you haven’t seen the show, or watched some of Season 1 only to leave it behind, I highly suggest you check it out tonight. Here are 3 fantastical reasons why you should be watching Amy Poehler and her gang of department misfits.

1) Because it’s way better than The Office. With the Pam/Jim tension gone, The Office has struggled to keep this reviewer vested in its story lines. Less office pranks and more Andy = a show at the end of its run. And let’s not even talk about Carell’s departure again. Consider that horse beaten to death.

2) Because Ron Swanson is one of the best comedic characters currently on TV. Nick Offerman plays Leslie Knope’s deadpan superior with ease. And who can resist that sexy mustache?

3) Because of this video (and, yanno, Rob Lowe and Adam Scott have been added to the cast). R.I.P. Party Down, but viva la Parks and Rec!

Season 3 starts tonight at 9:30pm on NBC. Be there or be square. Foo.



‘Scream 4’ Teaser (and Full!) Trailer

Posted in happyyy, Horrorrr, things I like that you should like too with tags , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2010 by Nick Caruso

This is the bajillionth post about Scream 4 in the last few weeks and I warn you, gentle readers:  It’s only going to get worse as we get closer to April 15th, 2011.

This teaser trailer debuted at the Scream Awards and has leaked on the Interweb. Check it! has a 30-second-longer offering with actual spoken lines and extended footage.

Why isn’t it APRIL now!?


‘Scream’ is the best horror series known to MAN

Scream 4 is filming. Horror fans around the world, rejoice!

OK…so maybe I’m overhyping this messiah to the genre film a little too much, but c’mon! The Cox-Arquettes are in, as is Neve Campbell. Wes Craven is back in action, with a screenplay from original writer Kevin Williamson. That’s at least a good start, right?

The fourth Scream film is also boasting a fresh, young cast including Hayden Panetitereirereree (Save the Cheerleader!), Rory Culkin, and Emma Roberts. Plus, the movie will have appearances by Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin (Sook-eh!), and Alison Brie.

EW posted this First Look at Scream 4:

One of my biggest fears about this movie is that they are going to “Laurie Strode” Sidney, Gail, and/or Dewey. I can accept that one of them is bound to die (tear, sadface), but if all three bite it, I’m not so sure how I’ll be able to LIVEEEE.  And in this photo, Gail looks like she’s in trouble!

My mind is already reeling! Maybe Sid has gone crazy and is the killer! Maybe a copycat wants to “reboot the series”! Maybe Deputy Dewey is trying to salvage Gail’s slightly weathered (HA! Get it?) career?

The possibilities are endless. April 15th, 2011 can’t come quickly enough.


Drinking the Cee Lo Kool-Aid

Great Scott, he’s done it again! Cee Lo Green’s new jam is now my new jam.

The Internet’s ablaze with this one, kids, and and it’s definitely got “Crazy” potential. The new album The Ladykiller doesn’t hit stores til December 7th, though.


Kristen Bell Makes Everything Better – Yeasayer’s “Madder Red” Video

Posted in happyyy, Muzik with tags , , , , on September 2, 2010 by Nick Caruso

FACT: Kristen Bell makes everything better.

Check her out in the new Yeasayer video, as she loves and mourns her….little pet…alien? Interesting. Even among the madness and silly antics, Bell still acts her face off, and mine.

…she’s amazing.

After the video, leave a comment about how you think Kristen Bell got so amazingly awesome.

“Madder Red” is from the album “Odd Blood”.  I highly recommend it.

Dear Conan: You complete me.

And also: I can’t quit you.

Now, TBS will actually, finally, live up to its mantra:  Very Funny.

See you in November, pal.


We interrupt your regularly scheduled program…

SoooooYEAH! Since my life has been consumed by packing my ish for the big move, I’ve been a craptastic blogger.

Forecast for TLW: Slow. Outlook: Not so good.

This is both bogus and sad, I know. When the future is upon me, I’ll be back with double-force, chugging full speed ahead on this train called life, and other awkward, nonsense metaphors too. It will change soon – I pinky swear.

Allow me to leave you with these parting gifts to enjoy in my absence.

I think Tosh is fly.

Did I mention that I’m going to Ozzfest on the 21st? This means I get to see:

and also:

I’ve never seen Ozzy before. I wonder if he’ll be able to stand, let alone sing.

Oh, yeah – and what’s the deal with this:

That’s cool. I guess…

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for!

No need to thank me, really. You stay classy, blogosphere! Til next time!
