Poor Matt Damon just can’t seem to catch a break with Jimmy Kimmel. The late night television host always tries to squeeze the actor into a time slot on his show but they always run out of time. It’s understandable — I mean, given the choice between a Barbershop Quartet and the Good Will Hunting actor you’re going to choose the senior harmonizers every time.
Then Matt Damon FINALLY got his break; A place in the late night lineup that any Hollywood actor would envy to promote his new movie Promised Land. Unfortunately things didn’t go according to plan… or I guess they just followed the status quo when they ran out of time AGAIN.
But seriously, you have to love Matt Damon for playing along and enlightening us with a string of blurred out curse words we’ve never heard before. [Side Note: I feel weird just calling him "Matt" or "Damon," which is why I decided to refer to him by his full name in the entire post. He's just to epic to be called by one name.]

The closest I got to playing with a baby fox when I was a kid was when a squirrel I fondly named Clarke kept coming up to our back door and asking for peanuts. Unfortunately, one time Clark was a little too precocious and jumped on my foot in an attempt to come inside with me. I had to shake him off and said a silent thank you that I was coincidentally wearing thick UGG boots.
Meanwhile, this little girl got to play with a baby fox in the desert like it was no biggie. I’d add it to my bucket list but knowing my luck, I’d most definitely be attacked.
And you thought your curious canine was cute? Check out these two dogs who are actually howling to each other over Skype. What do you think they’re talking about?
When you’re watching the big football game, sometimes you might wonder what the players, coaches and referees are actually saying to one another. Luckily, BadLipReading has cleared the whole thing up for us, dubbing over their conversations with completely fictitious yet hilarious dialogue.
I don’t know why I find this video of a Beagle puppy versus an orange so fantastic, but I watched the whole thing. And then I watched it again. CrackRockCandy uploaded this video of Mayamo wage war against an the citrus fruit. He bites, spins and dances around his adversary until he crashes into the camera, which apparently gave the recorder a fat lip.
When I saw Inception in theatres, my mind was blown. But I was surprised to find that a lot of my friends didn’t feel the same way. Screen Junkies Honest Trailers took on the film with deafening horn noises, justifying the opinions of all those naysayers.
Just like the audience, the characters in the film (Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Loves-it, Ellen Page and a dreidel) can’t figure out what the hell is going on. The movie is so complex is requires intense concentration at any moment.
Minnesota reporter Lee Valsvik took one for the team on live television when she was pummelled by a dude with a football. She was interviewing a restaurant mixologist for the KARE 11 Saturday show and asked him about playing football on the rooftap patio. He threw the football to a nearby friend who charged the reporter and accidentally (we’re hoping accidentally) tackled her. The last thing you hear? The reassuring ”I’M OKAY!”
Remember that dude who made a stupid amount of sex explaining human sexuality? He’s back with another video that’s going viral and it’s epic: 53 jokes in less than four minutes. One half of the vlogbrothers, Hank Green, spewed out the jokes in record time and to be honest, not all of them are terrible.

This thief isn’t a regular pickpocket — he’s more of a Robin Hood, serving the streets of NYC to make them less annoying. A young guy was riding the D Train in NYC, singing jumbled lyrics loudly enough to scare the innocent tourists a few rows down. The thief, standing next to him, stole his Beats by Dr. Dre headphones at the perfect moment. Do you think the video is real or was it a well orchestrated prank?
Although cats are relatively self-sufficient, when they do want something they’ll let you know. They’ve developed a bit of a reputation for being rude and sadistic. This cat on the other hand, doesn’t want to bother anyone. She just wants to be pet by her owner, but he’s watching TV so she takes the high route and asks… politely.

Emblem 3, Fifth Harmony, Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclar are the final four left standing in the competition, and it’s getting super intense. You can tell all the musicians have their game face on and are bringing it with everything they have. Like last week, the acts will sing two songs: One chosen by the singers themselves, and one chosen by their mentor. Every performance is getting better and showing the true potential of the artists, which is why it’s getting hard to pick just three favourites.
Emblem 3 – “Baby I Love Your Way” (Picked by Emblem 3)
Emblem 3 picked this song because they said it’s their mother and father’s favourite song (Aww!). I’m a sucker for oldies, and I felt like their cover was really modern and creative; I wasn’t a big fan of the rapping part, but I still liked that they put their own personal spin on a classic. Like LA said, they’re super charismatic and they’re good at getting the audience into every performance. Demi said it was the first time she felt they actually lived up to what she expected of them. Twitter user @sassquatchet tweeted “I actually really think Emblem 3 deserves to be in the finals — they have such a unique, raw sound that’s so different than everything today”
Tate Stevens – “Fall” by Clay Walker (Picked by LA)
LA picked an emotional song for Tate, and he performed it so well I felt like he was singing on his wedding day. I don’t even know what to say about Tate anymore – I think everyone understands that his voice is impeccable and unwavering in every performance, and even if he doesn’t win first place, this show won’t be the last we’ll see of him. Demi said: “Your wife must feel like the luckiest girl in the world, spending your fifteenth anniversary singing your heart out to her.” Simon said he was happy that Tate decided to enter the competition.
Carly Rose Sonenclar – “Imagine” by John Lennon (Picked by Britney) Read more…
Here’s one reason to not complain about the frigidly cold temperatures outside: Finnish people. They have to put up with icy weather but they still manage to make up one of the happiest nations in the world. Take it from these bold Finnish guys who glare at the snow with their “come at me hypothermia,” disrobe and bury their bodies under the powder for kicks. Finland, you’re doing it better than everyone else.
In totally inconsequential, pointless news of the day, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are actually living in the 80s teen movie Dirty Dancing. We know this because sometime during their intense love affair, which is blossoming as beautifully as a single red rose, Harry was photographed picking up Taylor in what can only be called a Patrick Swayze lift.
The photo at the top of the article was taken of the One Direction singer with the serial dater at the Z100 Jingle Ball after-party. Earlier that night, the two were spotted (blush) kissing. Regardless of what you think of them you have to admit they’re cute. And they really know how to work a photo op.

Tardar Sauce the grumpy cat has been getting a lot of attention lately from media outlets such as Refinery29, The Soup and even The Today Show. However, she doesn’t really like all the hooplah. In fact, she doesn’t understand why people make fun of her for looking grumpy in the first place. She’s a very happy cat and just wants to be accepted by her friends. But then memes like this happen:
In this new profile by Storyboard, the grumpy cat talks about Starbucks coffee cake, being afraid of heights and stinky cabs in New York City.

You know that feeling you have when you try something OVER AND OVER and you just keep failing? Well, all those kids books and inspirational quotes that remind you to try and try again are totally right.
This gymnast was attempting a challenging lineup of backflips but it wasn’t working out for him. After a ton of attempts and a few wipeouts, he finally landed the routine he was going for. It’s a good lesson in dedication for all those discouraged by a project they’re passionate about.
Is it just me, or is it becoming increasingly impossible to keep waiting for “The Hobbit” to hit theatres? Cue overly dramatic, inner nerdling reaction here:
The amazing people of the internet are not making this process easy either. Just a few days ago, I came across this glorious Hobbit-Goonies mash-up made by YouTuber Lance Ford. Today, the Internet has presented us with “Unlikely Quotes From The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey Official Parody 2012.” That was a mouthful. But it’s worth every second.
In the video, made by Octavarius Comedy, Gandalf, Thorin, and Bilbo Baggins go on an unexpected journey to what appears to be a city. Misery ensues — but along the way, the characters basically namedrop a bunch of famous movie quotes and characters that would never, ever be mentioned in the real film. Not even you, Lord Voldy. The characters also use some pretty explicit language that I think would only send fans into fits of laughter if they were included in the actual film. The parody is just making it that much harder to wait for the film to come out. But I’m glad the wonderful people of the internet are doing what they do best.

Superhero Angelina from albinwonderland spoke up for girls everywhere about misogyny in geek culture and the ridiculousness of the “fake geek girl” phenomenon. The well-spoken illustrator and blogger commented on a Facebook post by comic book artist Tony Harris that criticized most female Cosplayers as “fakes.”
Hey! Quasi-Pretty-NOT-Hot-Girl, you are more pathetic than the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC. But we are onto you. Some of us are aware that you are ever so average on an everyday basis. But you have a couple of things going your way. You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either skinny( Well, some or most of you, THINK you are ) or you have Big Boobies… You have this really awful need for attention, for people to tell you your pretty, or Hot, and the thought of guys pleasuring themselves to the memory of you hanging on them with your glossy open lips, promising them the Moon and the Stars of pleasure, just makes your head vibrate. After many years of watching this shit go down every 3 seconds around or in front of my booth or table at ANY given Con in the country, I put this together.
Yea, gross huh? Angelina was just as disgusted as you probably are right now. She eloquently called him out for shaming female cosplayers and glorifying their looks.
After reading his original post, she commented: “You and dude bros like you are the reason that women everywhere feel too intimidated to get into comics. Because if we enjoy them and express ourselves in a way that you don’t personally approve of, you try to nerd cred shame us out of your little boys club. And in the same breath you go, why aren’t there any boys here?”
We’re happy she gave a voice to female cosplayers everywhere. What do you think of her message?
