Everyone has that person on their street or in their apartment who lives alone, has multiple cats, and everyone silently is secretly freaked out by. Reading this autobiography can make you feel just like that person especially when you’re sitting alone at Starbucks cackling really weirdly because damn, Tina Fey really is that funny. That’s when everyone is suddenly freaked out by you and will probably try to get away from you. But again, this book is so funny, that you won’t even care.
If you’ve heard of Tina Fey, you know that she is one of the funniest women to ever grace television or the big screen. Her autobiography keeps on track with her witty persona and page after page, it’s as if you are being punched in the throat with her sometimes cheesy one-liners.
Animator OnlyLeigh on YouTube recreated the openings for popular television shows in honor of her husband Oren’s birthday. She spoofs on popular shows like Mad Men, Lost, Arrested Development and Adventure Time just to name a few. Leigh has single-handedly upped the ante when it comes to birthday gifts because, damn, you can’t top this one.
Like many other fresh-faced youths that have been so mercilessly pushed out into the real world, I have discovered one of the most important business tool you can have is a business card. They’re not only for entering yourself for a chance to win a free drink at your local Starbucks, they also come in handy for making connections and contacts.
During my own research on how to best use that little itty bit of cardstock, I came across some alternative uses. Who knew that business cards were perfect for:
Telling someone they suck at parking:
Giving emotional support when you yourself happen to be emotionally distant:
Pretending you’re someone else:
Letting others know that they’re inappropriately dressed:
and most importantly, reminding others exactly who you are:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Selena Gomez practically tells us who her favourite One Directioner is and Chris Brown gets into a fight with Frank Ocean.
HIT: Selena Gomez would kiss Zayn from One Direction
Single Selena Gomez recently dished to Extra! that she wouldn’t mind stealing a smooch from One Direction’s Zayn Malik. Doesn’t that sound like a great new relationship? She’s single, he’s s— oh, no. No, he is not single but I wouldn’t be surprise if he were currently headed for one considering his recently cheating scandal. Malik (who’s attached to pop star Perrie Edwards) had a one-night stand with a waitress. Oooooh! Can’t wait to see how this plays out!
MISS: Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a fight
Chris Brown can’t seem to stay out of trouble as the village idiot picked a fight with fellow Grammy nominee, Frank Ocean. The confrontation allegedly escalated when Ocean left Brown’s handshake hanging or over a parking space. Ocean and Brown acknowledged the scuffle on the Internet in their own respective ways. Ocean tweeted the incident and added, “”Cut my finger now I can’t play w/two hands at the Grammys,” while Brown practically compared himself to Jesus on the cross on Instagram. Brown has since made his account on the photo sharing website private and is currently under investigation. GO TEAM OCEAN!
HIT: Bradley Cooper took off his shirt at a spin class causing women to fall off their bikes
In his quest of perpetual handsomeness, current best actor nominee Bradley Cooper hit up a spin class in New York City for a quick work out and caused a lot of women to fall off their bikes. According to the New York Post, the actor tried to be incognito and wore a long sleeved shirt for most of the class until he decided to whip it off at the very end. The Post’s sources said at that point “girls were literally falling off their bikes,” but “he was super gracious” to the fans that had the courage to say hello after class. I hope someone took the opportunity to ask him out because he is single.
MISS: Justin Bieber fondles a fan Read more…
Want to waste 20 seconds of your life (possibly more if you decide to play this badboy on loop)? Here’s a video of a goat beatboxing! Thanks, Internet for you vast time-wasting resources and no, you do not have the save this goat like the title suggests. It’s my attempt of wit gone awry.
Just in case you don’t believe in miracles, the YouTube comment section lays it all out for you:
HIT: Beyoncé directing HBO Doc on Herself
We’re already predicting that Queen Bey will OWN 2013. On top of headlining the Super Bowl half-time show and reportedly releasing new music in the next year, she’ll now also direct an HBO documentary on herself. Between her and Jay Z (you’ve seen this adorable video of him talking to an old lady on the subway, right?), there’s no doubt Blue Ivy will be an ambitious, thoughtful young lady.
MISS: Channing Tatum to Take a Break from Acting
According to Entertainment Weekly, Mr. Sexiest Man of the Year has decided to take a year-long break in the near future to focus on finding a project to direct with his production partner. Take a deep breath, ladies, here’s a tissue. It’s just a break. After the kind of year Tatum has had (pretty much a movie every two months), you wouldn’t want to see him overexposed and burned out, right? Anyways, four for you, Channing Tatum. You go, Channing Tatum.
HIT: GIFs of Justin Timberlake During his Male Pageant Days
Go call Honey Boo Boo Child and tell her all future pageants are cancelled because Justin Timberlake just won all the awards (even though this took place years ago, but we’ll ignore that)! Thanks to the lovely folks at Buzzfeed, we can now marvel as Timberlake coyly plays with the audience during his young pageant days. Together now: I can’t even. This is too precious. SQUEAL!
MISS: Jayden Smith Claims his Instagram was Hacked after a Hateful Comment Read more…
If you’re not a fan of football, you may watch the Super Bowl for the amazingly expensive commercials.
Since the big game airs on NBC, actors from some of the biggest shows on the network got together for a musical number. Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin from “30 Rock” started off, with appearances from the cast of “Community”, “Parks and Recreation”, “Smash” and my favourite: “Law and Order: SVU”.
The number ended with everybody out on the street dancing like they’re filming an episode of “Glee”. It’s cheesy but endearing. If you love to watch NBC, you’ll appreciate this commercial.
If you’ve seen “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve” you’re familiar with the format. Every single celebrity in the world stars in a movie taking place on one of the most romantic days of the year. They hate their jobs and hate the fact that they’re single and lonely.
Such is the premise for “Martin Luther King Day”, except it’s not a real movie. It’s a spoof that will be features on an upcoming episode of “30 Rock”. Creator Tina Fey wanted to play up on all these ridiculously cheesy star-studded films that have come out this past year.
MLK Day is probably the least romantic holiday of the year (besides Ground Hog Day, of course) so watching Emma Stone and Andy Samberg whine about not having dates for the special day makes the other films look ludicrous.
As funny as this trailer may be, we should all be happy it’s not real.
Since its debut in 2006, “30 Rock” has become one of the comedy series of the millennium. This is partially due to SNL alumna Tina Fey and her brilliant writing.
Her character, Liz Lemon, is quite the hero among young women. Liz is geeky without being too irritating. She’s sarcastic without being too cruel. She’s a feminist without being overly feminine and prude. There are many reasons why young women look up to Tina Fey’s quirky character.
With all the Shit __ Says floating around on the internet, NBC took it upon them to edit a Shit Liz Lemon Says video, because Liz says a lot of shit and 100% of the time it’s hilarious. Take a look:
For months now the 30 Rock star has hidden her baby bump. Even her character on the show went through a fake pregnancy in order to cover for her boss’s wife. Fey finally admitted during a taping of the Oprah Winfrey show that she is in fact pregnant with her second child to accompany her five-year-old daughter Alicia. Celebrity-Gossip.net reports that Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond are thrilled for the second child.
Fey is apparently already 5 months a long. She kept that secret under wraps pretty well for someone constantly in the spotlight. Hopefully this baby will inherit her good looks and comedic charm.
Too bad Alec Baldwin spilled the bad news about the end of 30 Rock we could have seen the Fey prodigies as stars. Baldwin also says that Fey will go on to have a successful writing and directing career so we will definitely be seeing more of her and that baby bump.
“I will tell you one thing,” he told New York magazine at the National Dance Institute’s annual fundraising gala last night.
“And that is our show next year is our last years of the show. Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She’s going to be the next Elaine May. She’ll be great.”
Baldwin has previously commented on leaving the show once his contact is up next season, however it is yet to be confirmed whether or not the show itself will continue.
So there it is, in only twelve months, could Jack Donaghy, Liz Lemon and friends be nothing but reruns?
It looks like another 30 Rock cast member is in trouble with Sarah Palin!
Semi-crazy person Tracy Morgan is being berated for his comments on the SAG Awards red carpet last night. Morgan, who just days ago called the former Alaska Governor “good masturbation material,” used an aside in his interview with Guliana Rancic to shout “Sarah Palin, you’re the hottest MILF in the world!”
Rancic, taken aback, attempted to steer the conversation in a different direction but Morgan would not follow. “She’s a MILF!” he shouted again.
What? He’s just saying what we’re all thinking!
A statement was hurriedly released apologizing for Morgan’s comments, but we don’t think they needed an apology! As if MILF is the worst thing he could have said. Pfft. Palin, we think you got off easy on that one.
Perez Hilton reports that the show is indeed safe for another season, but its timeslot will be bumped to 10pm. The show is now nestled in between ratings losers Parks and Recreation and Outsourced.
We love watching Tracy Jordan’s crazy antics, but Outsourced has got to go!
Will you tune into 30 Rock at 10pm this January?
A 911 call was made from the actor’s apartment by what what is believed to be Badlwin’s fourteen year old daughter. The caller said the actor was unresponsive. Although his condition is unclear, the actor has been released from hospital.

Even though she’s busy giving out cars like they’re breath mints, being attacked by Tom Cruise on a couch and being the queen of daytime, Oprah Winfrey is still making time to appear on primetime this fall.
Oprah Winfrey is in final talks to appear as a guest star on Tina Fey’s hit show, 30 Rock, reports E!
Oprah would make her 30 Rock debut on Nov. 6 and has already been written into the second episode script.
Winfrey will be playing herself appearing in scenes opposite Tina Fey’s character, Liz Lemon.
Oprah will be joined by other guest stars this fall including the friendly, Jennifer Aniston, who will appear in the third episode. Will Arnett will also reprise his Emmy-nominated role, Devin Banks for the season premiere.
The Oprah Winfrey Show will begin its 23rd season on Monday, September 8.
Jane Krakowski is joining the cast of the new NBC dramedy “30 Rock,” while Rachel Dratch’s role is being cut back.
E! Online reports that the former Ally McBeal star will play the star of the fictional variety series that “30 Rock” takes place around.
“Jane is enormously talented and everyone is thrilled that she is joining the cast. I think it’s going to be a perfect fit,” said executive producer Lorne Michaels.
Dratch, meanwhile, was supposed to play the star of the fictional variety series, but instead will play a number of smaller roles of different characters for the series. Michaels says he changed things around because Dratch has a knack for comedy, so he wanted her roles to exentuate her strengths.
“Both Tina (Fey) and I obviously adore Rachel, and we wanted to find a way in which we could go to her strength. The way it’s been rewritten, it’s a much funnier part,” Michaels told Variety about the switch.
