Listen to the Original Song “Paper Boi” from Donald Glover’s “Atlanta”

I’ve talked about how effortlessly, seamlessly and dynamically phenomenal the show is, but check out the song. Spoiler alert: it’s unreal.

Great right? I think it’s safe to say we can’t wait till the whole thing is released.

You probably thought it sounded a little like Childish himself doing an Hotlanta style impression. Here’s why: It’s his brother, Stephen Glover aka Steve G. Lover iii. He cowrites the unbelievably well-written show and is getting his own rap career off the ground. Too much talent for one family. Spread the wealth, will ya?

Robert De Niro on Donald Trump:”I’d like to punch him in the face”

Watch Bob De Niro go full on Jimmy Conway about Trump if you haven’t seen it yet.

I don’t care who you’re talking about, but when you call someone a punk, dog, pig, con bullshit artist, mutt, idiot, fool and a bozo — ESPECIALLY BOZO — I’m automatically on your side. Don’t need issues, policy, morals, any of that. But any list of insults that Scorsese, I’m just sold.

Watch This Canadian Guy in the World Series of Poker Throw a Massive Bitchfit

This just made poker go from moderately watchable to must-watch.

When Benger (in the Blue Jays hat) lost his shit, Kassouf became my favorite poker player in the world (not that I had a favorite before). If you get a guy to almost cry, yell “check your privilege” and “you’re verbally abusing me,” you’re my kind of poker player. I almost cried myself when he ended up losing with pocket cowboys. Either way, watching these nerds rattle each other is sensational.

Look Out OJ, There’s a New Unreal Murder Doc in Town

Amanda Fucking Knox on Netflix

(No spoilers)

See it? YES RIGHT NOW QUIT YOUR JOB AND SEE IT.

Quick Rating: 10/10

Ok a couple things, the title is just “Amanda Knox” but I really think my addition does it better justice. Secondly, I can’t quite say it’s as good as OJ: Made in America, but it’s one of the only documentaries I would even put in the same conversation. However, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s better than Making a Murderer. Sandwiched between the two other best murder documentaries I’ve ever seen.

I really, REALLY don’t wanna give anything away so I can’t say much at all, but I will say this. Holy. Fucking. Shit. You may not punch a wall like you did for Steven Avery, you may not throw up like you did because of OJ, but Knox’s story will almost definitely make you shiver most.

You cannot miss a second, and don’t go into this movie without preparing to be confused, scared, sad, angry, befuddled and sickened. Every fucked up emotion a murder story is supposed to give you, “Amanda Knox” has in spades. Or as Italians would say “E-spaida’s-ah”

Watch it as soon as you can, and don’t forget to buckle up.

Fight! Fight! Fight! – Celebrity Fights We Want to See: Actors

The action-packed tale of the tape:

1. Boston-Weight

Ben Affleck vs. Matt Damon
Why?
Because we need to know once and for all who the best Boston guy is. When they were Hunting for Good Will, it was cute that they were friends. But now, their careers have separated and it’s about time for one of them to be the undisputed king of Mass.
Winner: Damon. Ben is much taller, but Matt has gotta be scrappier. The taller, better looking guy is always less scrappy. That’s just a scientific fact. So with scrappiness and length probably canceling each other out, it would come down to a mental game. I think Damon out-strategy’s the Reindeer Gamer and barely eeks it out.

2. Idiot-Weight

Drew Berrymore vs. Jenny McCarthy
Why? There’s demand. All men are perverts and for some reason think women fighting is hot.
Winner: McCarthy. This brawl will come down to who has the smaller brain, because that means there’s less to damage. And while Drew may seem like the stupidest person to ever walk this earth, you just can’t out-moron someone who essentially advocates for polio AND married Jim Carrey. That’s Hall of Fame idiocy.

3. Method-Actor-Weight

Christian Bale vs. Daniel Day-Lewis
Why? I think we can all agree it would be fun to watch two actors fucking weirdos become fighters prior going at it.
Winner: Day-Lewis. We can’t count on either of their weights because you don’t know if you’re getting The Machinist or Batman from Bale, or Honest Abe or Bill the Butcher from DDL. Day-Lewis has a little length on Bale, but Bale could channel Patrick Bateman at any moment. So that leaves us at a dead heat, but I’m taking Daniel Day-Lewis because when it comes down to those last 30 seconds they will probably just fling their oscars at each other’s heads. Those bastards are 8.5 lbs and Day-Lewis could huck 2 more than Bale could.

4. Uncategorized-Weight

Mike Tyson vs. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Why? 
Because there isn’t a living soul on this earth that doesn’t want to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt get the living shit beaten out of him.
Winner: Tyson. You know, Mike Tyson. The actor from the Hangover? He wouldn’t take any mercy on anyone, including a tall child half his size. Tyson beats JGL to a bloody pulp and the fight doctors are too busy celebration-spraying champagne along with everyone else in attendance to check if the little fella’s still breathing.

5. Main Event: Dangerous-Psychopath-Weight

Jared Leto vs. Charlie Sheen
Why? If you don’t want to see Joker vs. Tiger’s Blood you’re nearly as insane as these fighters.
Winner: Sheen. A few years back, when he did that exposé on the complete deterioration of his mental stability, I’m sure you all remember the warlock shit, the winning, etc. But do you remember how fucking SHREDDED he was when he pulled up his shirt? When I saw that I legitimately considered banging 7 gram rocks and diseased pornstars as a workout regimen. Leto gets into this fight for sending his Suicide Squad cast mates dead animals, don’t disregard what a fucking freak he is. But still, I think Sheen kills him in 30 seconds (to Mars).

 

If you have any actor fights you’d like to see that I didn’t include here, let me know and I’ll give my predictions. But either way, rest assured athletes and rappers are coming soon.

Incoming Blog Series: Fight! Fight! Fight! – Celebrity Fights We Want to See

Do you ever look at a pair of celebrities and say “boy I’d like to see those two try to kick the shit out of each other?” I do all the time, and I want to write about some theoretical fight cards separated by field. To begin, the fights will be actors v actors, rappers v rappers, and athletes v athletes. We’re talking UFC style bouts but with looser rules divisions based on my parameters — as opposed to just weight —  and no tapping out.

I’ll give you the matchups we’d like to see, my predicted outcomes and the reasoning for said predictions.

The actor card is coming right up.

Hard Shuffle of the Day: Wednesday, 10/19

The Painter by I’m from Barcelona

I’m genuinely glad I get to show you this song.

This is so simple, so indie and just a great fucking song. It’s a highly uplifting blend of instruments, most notably the damn-near-ska horns. It’s like a louder, brighter and bolder Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros track, but far more effortless than anything you’d expect from them.

I’d be surprised if you’ve heard this one before, and if you do, trust me, you’ll be happy you did.
