I will admit, I was the first person on the hate wagon when it came to Drake and the Toronto Raptors, but after watching the intros he gave to the starting lineup of the Raps last night, I am down with Drake being the unofficial/official mascot of his hometown team. Get after it, Raps! #WeTheNorth
Chris Pratt Pays Tribute to Little Sebastian at the ‘Parks and Recs”‘ Wrap Party, Because I Needed to Cry at My Desk Today
We already know Chris Prat is awesome, so this is just icing on the cake. Let me ask you a question, how sad do you think I am that Parks and Recs is ending; scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the saddest)……If you guessed anything lower than “456” then you are wrong. Parks and Recs filled the hole that “The Office” left in my heart (I wish I knew how to quit you, Michale Scott), but now that it is coming to and end I don’t know what to do with myself. I think on the series finale I will brush off the old guitar and sing my very own Pawnee tribute. It won’t sound as glorious as Mr. Pratt singing, or as smooth as Nick Offerman playing the guitar, but it will be from the heart. I’m going to do it on the roof of my house so the whole world can hear.
PS – Here is the trailer to the farewell season…..(Sad face)
Happy Wednesday! Since our podcast is officially on the iTunes store now I figured I would celebrate by giving back to you! Here is a supercut of Conan in 2014. I had Conan whip this up this morning. NBD.
Not even a semi-severe injury can keep DeRozan off the court and without his team. After back-to-back wins, DeMar was with fellow teammate Kyle Lowrey and was asked to do the interviewing. That’s the kind of energy DeRozan brings to your team. The “oh hell yeah i’ll do this interview”. Just needs to get better with putting the mic where people are talking. Can’t be great at everything I suppose. Can’t wait to have him on the other side of mic and of my fantasy bench!
One part Wes Anderson and two parts David O’ Russell, this movie combines the odd charm of the 70’s with a unlikely hero tale. Nobody plays a character quite like Joaquin Phoenix does, and this seems to be one of his most interesting. This looks like it could be a late sleeper of 2014.
Every time I see something like this on the internet have two immediate thoughts. 1. “Wow people have a lot of spare time on their hands” and 2.”People have way too much fucking time on their hands.” Not saying this isn’t awesome, because it is, but I can’t even fathom the amount of time that went into making this. Because of how many views it received I’m almost positive that whoever made it will be making other trailers and then the full-length feature, and I’ll be first in line to watch the first ever movie made in a video game. Innovative AS FUCK.
The more I watch Stephen Colbert do his thing more more I feel like he is the right choice as the heir to the Letterman empire. He’s funny, good in front of a camera, and one of the true masters of an interview. Sure he can be a bit too silly sometimes, but like his mentor Jon Stewart, he knows when to get serious. Interviewing Smaug is one of those…more serious times.
If you missed it, or live under a large stone, here is Stephen on The Late Show talking about his future.
Something the Average Nobodies have always enjoyed is creating for YOU! It is the reason we have the blog, it is the reason we make YouTube videos, and it is the reason we get up in the morning. Well, we have real jobs too so that’s another reason we get up in the morning, but you know what we mean. Our new podcast, looking to be released later this week, will cover topics from pro wrestling and current events to guest interviews and movie reviews. We will do it all! Once the Podcast is up on iTunes we will push the link. Until then, stand by!
