WWE Network’s “Southpaw Regional Wrestling” is Everything I Didn’t Know I Wanted…

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.

Watch the Architecture Profession take a Satirical Turn in “The Architect”…

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”…

OMG! “The Harlem Shake” Meme Has Taken OVER!!

…and this is how you do it in three simple steps:

1. Wear any type of headgear.
2. Play the song “Harlem Shake” by  Baauer.
3. GO BUCK WILD!!

The internet is a valuable resource for infromation, education, and interaction, but sometimes something special comes up online that could seem like some type of joke that evolves to become something SO ELABORATE that it seems as if it’s no longer a gag.  Case in point: the video above it the credited as the first example of the “Harlem Shake” video meme. What started as an introduction to a comedy compilation video called “Filthy Compilation #6 — Smell My Fingers” from comedian Filthy Frank has EXPLODED — in this PAST WEEK — into an internet and YouTube phenomenon, seemingly joining the likes of the Macarena, The “Gangnam Style” dance,  and –ugh — the “Crank Dat” dance (just…..just….terrible).

After the break, I’ve included some videos from college kids, firefighters, office spaces (like SourceFed, CollegeHumor, Break & IGN) and the Peanuts.  As far as memes go, most of the “Harlem Shake” videos are pretty awesome, mainly because they’re close-to-nothing more hilarious that watching people — mostly of the anglo persuasion — dance awfully to hip-hop-infused dub-step music.   Continue reading OMG! “The Harlem Shake” Meme Has Taken OVER!!
