Ultra Music Festival is a zoo. From land sharks to killer whales, pink flamingos to African zebras, UMF 2013 is starting to feel a lot like a World Wildlife Foundation fundraiser, complete with endangered species and cuddly critters. Sure, they're inflatable, but just the same. These are some of the ... More >>
In his comedy act, Anthony Jeselnik plays the asshole, cracking dark, arrogant, and hilarious one-liners. The persona has gotten him far; Jeselnik is now a prominent figure on Comedy Central's roasts, has a successful stand-up career, and is in development for a television show on the same network. ...

Penis, anyone?For the last fifteen years, the Phallogical Museum in the tiny fishing town of Husavik, Iceland, has existed for one purpose and for one purpose only: to collect and display a shitload of penises. Is that two purposes? So be it. In any case, the museum's collection features an i ... More >>
To Hop's credit, the blend of live action and CGI rodents is considerably less creepy than it was in 2007's incredibly unsettling Alvin and the Chipmunks, one of the worst, most cynical computer-generated turds ever crapped out by Hollywood. In fact, the little rabbit guy in Hop is actually k ... More >>
Like every other blog in existence, we've been getting endless mileage out of Charlie Sheen's recent series of bizarre rants, so when we found out he was looking for a social media intern and asking prospects to apply in 75 characters or less yesterday, Kyle Garratt couldn't help but throw hi ...

Dude, Dave. Chill!Last week, NPR asked listeners to share photos of themselves with favorite musicians. That's a swell idea and all, but we thought that taking the angle of the photobomber would be a more entertaining way to look at pictures of famous people with non-famous people. While there have ...

Ah, Germany: Strangest of European cultures, home of great beers and lovers of David Hasselhoff. Not to mention, the only possible place in the world, apart from maybe their WWII buddies Japan, where something like today's video could emerge.
Why? Because only in Germany would one think to ... More >>
Germany is a strange, strange place, almost like Bizarro-world. It's place where David Hasslehoff can have a huge success as a pop singer, for example. And if you keep that in mind, the existence, and success, of today's freaky selection almost, kind of, sorta makes sense.
Today's clip is a ... More >>
Photo by Kenny Be Colorado will see Lord Stanley's Cup in 2010 if fans just keep looking up.
The first game of the first round of the NHL playoffs is scheduled today and hockey wizards are saying that the San Jose Sharks will take the Colorado Avalanche in five. I'm much more optimistic and ... More >>
There is very little that needs to be said to put across the basic idea of Van Canto. Three words, in fact, are really all I need: a capella metal (er, is that two words? whatever). Not that I'm going to stop there -- there's no way I can resist heaping it on a bit. Yes, this is a band that d ... More >>
Taking Woodstock is in theaters Friday. Maybe it will be really good, or maybe taking a stand-up comedian and sticking him in a semi-dramatic movie about Woodstock that doesn't feature any -- any! -- musical performances is a terrible idea. Still, rock 'n' roll and Hollywood have been ugly, ... More >>
This week's Westword features an overtly robo-gandist cover story about Basil, a beer-serving robot created by Denver's Jim and Louise Gunderson. But with all this talk of robots, I would've been remiss in not listing -- as a service to humanity -- the most evil robots of all time and what we, a ... More >>
Bad Luck City's amazing 2008 album, Adelaide, opens with an absolutely stunning cover of the Lee Hazlewood song, "The Night Before," from his 1970 hard-to-find album, Cowboy in Sweden. Though it's surprising for a unique and creative outfit like Bad Luck City to introduce itself with someone else's ... More >>
