How did Charlize look? Always looking fuckable.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2014 7:49 AM

@7:49, Charlize Theron looked great.
@6:40, you need to develop a better sense of humor if you thought there was anything funny in that show. From the horrible opening of Michelle Obama/Hillary Clinton (GROAN!!) to the terrible exploding whale sketch (pathetic attempt at sight-gag)the broadcast made me cringe with embarrassment for the writers and performers. I've always been a fan of this show, but this whole season was horrid.
Only bright spots were (as always): Keenan & Bobby Moynihan. Black Keys sounded good also.

Yeah @6:40 your taste in comedy sucks and Charlize was hot

Why does Dan A. always look like he just ate a pile of shit and then had to correct grammar on BV? He a-l-w-a-y-s has such a pissy look on his face.

And, friend's, here's some music history for you:

The drummer in the group, his uncle is responsible for all the horns on the classic Tom Waits albums of the '80s and '90s. And, on top of that, he's on a track on the latest St. Vincent album too.

Stick around for more music news you fuckers didn't know.

This is the coolest band in town and I am glad that I've spent my vacation on Brooklyn. This case I can jam in the party.

Those songs weren't too interesting. And by the second one, someone really loves pink floyd. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Dear 10:23,

Brian Epstein was the manager for The Beatles until his death in 1967. After that, they managed themselves through their recently started company: Apple Corp.

Nice try though.

And I made you my bitch by simply allowing you to speak. Learn proper sentence structure and grammar, friend. Until that day comes, and we both know that's going to be a while given your latest attempt, you'll continue to be my lil' bitch. Bitch.

1:11. The mere fact that you allowed yourself to be trolled by the obviously false remark that Auerbach's dad was the Beatles manager makes you the bitch here.

That's why people troll in the first place: to get a reaction and net fish like you.

My friend, what the fuck is up?!

Do you honestly think for one second I actually took his comment at face value for being The Beatles' manager? You, dear sir/madam, are an idiot. I was trolling back. Which, as it would seem, makes not only him/her, but you too, my bitch. Nice little collection I have going here for a Sunday.

@1:29, If your idea of "younger,funnier comedy" includes last weeks ridiculous skit about black women popping out slaves, then I will stick to old bits by Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Chris Rock & Bill Hicks.

Black Keys are a bunch a priviledged entitled douchebags who make Dad rock and were always second rate White Stripes.

SNL has not been remotely funny since 1998. 1979 if you are an SNL purist.

@7:58

The next time you have a moment in your important schedule, perhaps you should take up glancing through a book on grammar. Within your second sentence, you have a prepositional phrase that should really be marked properly.

I'm sure you knew that though, right? Right, friend.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2014 8:24 PM

There is no prepostional phrase in that sentence, cock sucker.

There are actually two prepositions in that second sentence: in & to.

Thanks.

Oh, and 8:56 ... "Dude, suck a dick."

Wow. You are original, friend. I'll make a deal with you. Come back to me with something you didn't swipe from a comedian, and then perhaps I'll listen to some dramatic, cool phrase you want to throw around.

Why so angry?

For a bunch of cool, Brooklyn-loving kids, you certainly get angry when someone calls you out on grammar mistakes. Reading is fun. You should try it and learn a new skill.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2014 9:15 PM

Oh, and 9:00, you take the award for most idiotic reasoning. So, based upon your statement, proper sentence structure is only useful when constructing a term paper. That's a fascinating notion. There's no real-world application to speaking and crafting proper sentences? Huh. Good luck with that.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2014 9:17 PM

i don't care about any spelling on here right or wrong, but 8:56 throwing around homophobic phrases by yelling at a guy to suck a dick is not cool. this site used to be fun to read for music stuff, but now it's all anger and bashing gays and women. peace out.

The duo began as an independent act, recording music in basements and self-producing their records, before they eventually emerged as one of the most popular garage rock artists during a second wave of the genre's revival in the 2010s.
