Batman SNL short - Steve Buscemi deals with the Dark Knight's tendency to disappear

The SNL Digital Shorts are hit or miss, but it’s always fun to see what strange idea Andy Samberg and his team come up with. Steve Buscemi hosted SNL this week. As it turns out, he makes a great Commissioner Gordon. In this short, Gordon deals with Batman’s (Andy Samberg) rather annoying knack for appearing and disappearing. And what shower scene would be complete without a hint of gay Aquaman?

Between Two Ferns with Seth Galifianakis (mustached brother of Zach)

Zach Galifianakis is everywhere these days, and he's earned it. Between Two Ferns is a Funny or Die series he started before The Hangover made him a big star and it's good to see him keep it going. This episode has his brother Seth Galifianakis interviewing Sean Penn for Zach. Penn could win an Oscar for how miserable he looks.

"Murder at the OK Corral" pokes fun at its own genre (Review)

Murder at the OK Corral

I don't usually review theater, but hell, it's my site. Plays are a lot like 3D movies anyway--except you don't need the funny glasses! Here's a piece I wrote for a local site, I saw the show in little Paw Paw, Michigan this past Sunday.

The O.K. Corral is a symbol of the old west that never seems to die. There are countless plays, films, books, and movies set at the Arizona bar, which was host to one of the most famous gunfights in history. In the genre of watching a show about the making of a show--think The Muppet Show or 30 Rock, but in the old west--the Village Players in Paw Paw, Michigan put on Murder at the O.K. Corral.

The play opens with tyrannical director Hermet Von Kibbel (Leward Fluty) screaming at his team of actors on the set of Days of the OK Corral. It's a one camera, hokey old western TV show, but that doesn't make it any less important for the Von Kibbel to yell at his cast. He's the kind of guy who wears an eye patch, but can't seem to remember which eye it's supposed to be on.

"I'm On a Boat" SNL song meets Ponyo (Funny Videos)

This is pretty great. It mixes the SNL Digital Short song “I’m on a Boat” with clips from Hayao Miyazaki’s newest masterpiece, Ponyo. If you haven’t seen Ponyo, you should. It’s a child’s wonderment type of tale, but anyone can enjoy its beauty. Check it out. The original “I’m on a Boat” video is after the jump.
