Behind the scenes at “Adventure Time.”

Tumblr, I hear you like “Adventure Time.”

Well, yeah, Adventure Time is in that rich vein of children’s programming that also happens to be very appealing to adults.

HAIM showing off the USA World Cup jerseys

these jerseys stink. the home ones aren’t great either. they look like Astro-Pops. I really wish the USSF would switch to a darker blue that matches the American flag and go with the Centennial crest rather than the clip-art crap it currently uses.
I now miss the sash jobs from the last World Cup.

White people up in arms because of Nick Cannon in whiteface is pretty much the most ironic thing in the history of ironic things. It’s apparently funny when we dress up in blackface but when a black person does the opposite THAT’S JUST WRONG!

If there is outrage, it’s obviously selective. No one got bent out of shape when Dave Chappelle wore white makeup to play a news anchor.On a serious level, there’s no historical context for people to get gripey about whiteface at all. Black people weren’t playing white folks on stage and recreating their worst stereotypes for centuries.

I’m crying this is so important

Fantastically wrong in a good way.Also, John Darnielle’s mediocre songs are better than Chris Martin’s good ones.

The Plight of Conservative Comedy: Where’s The Right’s Daily Show?

Fox News has astronomically high ratings. Rush Limbaugh rules talk radio. But liberals dominate political comedy. The few attempts to create a conservative satire show have either not found mainstream success (News Busted, a YouTube series with views typically in the low 30,000s), aired far outside of prime time (Red Eye, filling Fox’s 3 a.m. slot), or been promptly cancelled (Half Hour News Hour, with 13 episodes on Fox). Are right-leaning satires doomed to failure?
The creators of Flipside don’t think so. Their once-a-week program, in the vein of The Daily Show or The Colbert Report but with a generally conservative tilt, hosted by comedian Michael Loftus, will premiere this fall. Can it work?

The problem is that satirical programs with a conservative bent miss the point. Jon Stewart is happy to lambaste his fellow liberals. The joke comes before the ideology. Attempts to create a conservative equivalent are already off the reservation and fail before they’ve begun.
