Best Web Series of 2007 – The Stack
The Stack covers comic books twice a week and is one of the best web series on the web right now. I used to read a lot of comics and occasionally I still do but I still like to keep up on what is going on.
Alex, Justin and Pete are the most entertaining hosts on any show. They get along so well that simply make each other funnier. It really feels like you are talking to friends about comics you have just read. But while they joke they also are able to make really insightful remarks about comics.
Justin and Pete are an especially good combo as they often have very different views on what makes a good comic and this keeps the show from having any kind of bias. And of course Alex reins the helm and keeps the show moving along at a fast pace.
If you have any interest in comics at all this is a must watch.
Knocked Up Review
This one finally seems like a review of Knocked Up that does not seem angry at Judd Apatow but still looks at how gender is portrayed in the movie. (via Feministing)
Cake at Terminal 5 – Dec 13th
Cake was awesome last night. John McCrea said he was sick and could only play certain songs. Those songs seemed to be Cake’s greatest hits though so I was more than happy. I’m still looking for a set list (here’s one from the 10th and it even has Sad Songs and Waltzes!).
Seems like Some one filmed almost the entire show: Stickshifts & Safetybelts, Opera Singer, Never There, Rock’n’Roll Lifestyle, Wheels, Black Sabbath’s War Pigs
The same girl took some amazing photos as well. Here’s the whole photo set on Flickr.
Somehow I managed only to see the crappy openers King City and Brazilian Girls and Miss the two I was looking forward to seeing Oakley Hall and Agent Ribbons.
Chris Hardwick points out that bowling is not in the Olympics
Chris Hardwick points out that bowling is not in the Olympics. I know who cares? But he also points out that curling is in the Olympics. Why one and not the other? I thinks this needs to be fixed.
