Tiny houses and the culture surrounding it have been taking over the mainstream. Tiny house websites, blogs, magazines, TV shows and online videos have shared storage tips and tricks to save space, looking for interesting vacation areas, or renting one out on your property (a’la Airbnb). This past Thursday, comedian Kevin Hart, with help from Booking.com, revealed his customized tiny house in Herald Square Park of New York City.

You may have seen Ron Funches on NBC’s Undateable or on Comedy Central’s @midnight, and if you’ve ever seen/heard his stand-up you’d know that he’s a longtime fan of professional wrestling. He even has a great bit about how to handle people who tell him wrestling is fake (because OF COURSE the fans already know it’s scripted and predetermined), and, to be hones, it’s a really good retort for keeping the “Negative Nancys” and those drunk off “haterade” at bay. However, Ron is taking his love for the medium to an whole ‘nutha level by actually taking pro wrestling classes, and he explains on Conan, (in the above video) why he’s doing it.

In a move that, like an RKO, absolutely came outta nowhere, WWE sent out a tweet yesterday announcing a new series on the WWE Network, titled Southpaw Regional Wrestling, . So far, it looks to be the Network’s first successful stab at scripted comedy. To be honest, any show with John Cena doing his best Gordon Solie impersonation — as the character and play-by-play announcer “Lance Catamaran” — ought to be good.

Aside from the frequent looks into the life of architect Ted Moseby from the TV series “How I Met Your Mother,” the architecture field hasn’t quite been a target for satire in the entertainment space. That brings me to “The Architect“, a new film directed by Jonathan Parker that brings forth the drama and comedy of the profession. The film features a humorous — yet somewhat believable in some cases — satire of architects, with character of the egocentric, self-centered and grandiose architect Miles Moss, portrayed by James Frain, who is working with a couple who wants him to design their dream home. Well golly-gee-whiz; what could POSSIBLY go wrong?!? Continue reading “Watch the Architecture Profession take a Satirical Turn in “The Architect”…”
