Earlier this week, news broke that Comcast—the nation's largest internet service provider (ISP) and video distributor intends to buy Time Warner Cable for 45.2 billion dollars. Comcast is also the biggest name in "triple play," offering packaged internet, phone and cable television service at around 52 percent of the market.
This move, coupled...
In 1939, Jimmy Stewart turned in an acting performance that, for many Americans, still serves as the “everyman” understanding of politics. To the modern viewer, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington might come across as clunky and naïve, but it nevertheless allows us to indulge in a time-honored narrative fantasy: an outsider can, through a combination...
I haven't stayed "current" with Keith Olbermann since he got the boot from MSNBC and landed at Current. For the most part, Lawrence O'Donnell and Rachel Maddow satisfy my Liberal Outrage requirements, but there are those times when Keith's unique brand of scorn is not only needed, but necessary. This is one of those times.
Hi! My name is Sheela!
Watching the "Hail to the V" commercials leaves me feeling conflicted.
They are certainly:
Idiotic and annoying. But hey, what advertising isn't?

This is the second video from the album, "Tea for None." It should be pretty easy to suss out its deeper meaning (well, unless you're a certain breed of conservative):
This video of my hero, Nicolas Fucking Cage, shows him doing what he does best: screaming brilliant nonsense at the top of his lungs with such wild abandon it sends chills down our collective spines. But I guess these square Romanian club bouncers just aren't hip to the Genius of the Master.
It's OK though, WE get it. Yes Mr. Cage, you will die in the name...
Is Subtle Butt! (Yes, it is real.)
Also excellent is this bizarre Scandinavian video featuring a shocking array of American stars singing "Let it Be" for no discernible reason. It doesn't have anything to do with the holidays, but it is plenty merry:
I'm not a shill for OK Go, I swear. (Although I'd be happy to talk compensation if they wanna put me on retainer.) All pimpin' aside, they are are swell people with solid pop songs and incredibly creative videos, like this one:
According to the band, "all 215 loaves of bread...
