can't. stop. watching. chris lilley is an australian comedian. and he's BRILLIANT. his latest show, "ja'mie: private school girl" is airing now on HBO.
but before ja'mie, there was "angry boys". and holy shit, it is FUNNY. the show follows twins nathan and daniel sims, their grandmother, juvenile detention guard "gran", and their "legends"...rapper s.mouse, surfer blake oakfield, and pro skateboarder tim okazaki. and lilley plays 6 (SIX!) of the characters. it's irreverent. it's crude. it's offensive as hell. and if you're painfully PC, don't even bother. but if none of that bothers you, it's a must watch. the entire season is available now on HBO ondemand, or... click here to catch full episodes on amazon instant video. enjoy ~ a.

the duck boys probably ain't so happy happy happy today.
phil robertson, the founder of duck commander and patriarch of the robertson family, has been "suspended" (read: FIRED.) following anti-gay remarks made in an interview for GQ magazine. the trouble started when the "duck dynasty" star, while discussing his religious beliefs in the article, equates homosexuality to bestiality. he then goes on to say, "It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical." a rep for a&e has released the following statement... "We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community."
and now for the 400 million dollar question... will jase, willie, jep and uncle si really agree to continue filming the show without phil?!? we shall see... a. (image via GQ.)

the fine folks at ned hardy have posted a list of a few reasons to remind you that mister fred rogers was one of the better humans that ever walked on this big old ball of gas we call earth.
via nedhardy.com... 1. He basically saved public television. In 1969 the government wanted to cut public television funds. Mister Rogers then went to Washington where he gave an amazing merely six minute speech. By the end of the speech not only did he charm the hostile Senators, he got them to double the budget they would have initially cut down. The whole thing can be found on youtube, a video called “Mister Rogers defending PBS to the US Senate.” 2. “Certain fundamentalist preachers hated him because, apparently not getting the “kindest man who ever lived” memo, they would ask him to denounce homosexuals. Mr. Rogers’s response? He’d pat the target on the shoulder and say, “God loves you just as you are.” Rogers even belonged to a “More Light” congregation in Pittsburgh, a part of the Presbyterian Church dedicated to welcoming LGBT persons to full participation in the church.” 3. According to a TV Guide piece on him, Fred Rogers drove a plain old Impala for years. One day, however, the car was stolen from the street near the TV station. When Rogers filed a police report, the story was picked up by every newspaper, radio and media outlet around town. Amazingly, within 48 hours the car was left in the exact spot where it was taken from, with an apology on the dashboard. It read, “If we’d known it was yours, we never would have taken it.” 4. Once, on a fancy trip up to a PBS exec’s house, he heard the limo driver was going to wait outside for 2 hours, so he insisted the driver come in and join them (which flustered the host). On the way back, Rogers sat up front, and when he learned that they were passing the driver’s home on the way, he asked if they could stop in to meet his family. According to the driver, it was one of the best nights of his life—the house supposedly lit up when Rogers arrived, and he played jazz piano and bantered with them late into the night. Further, like with the reporters, Rogers sent him notes and kept in touch with the driver for the rest of his life. 5. Most people have heard of Koko, the Stanford-educated gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in American Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. As Esquire reported, when Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off! 6. Once while rushing to a New York meeting, there were no cabs available, so Rogers and one of his colleagues hopped on the subway. Esquire reported that the car was filled with people, and they assumed they wouldn’t be noticed. But when the crowd spotted Rogers, they all simultaneously burst into song, chanting "It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood." The result made Rogers smile wide.
i'm so lucky to have grown up under his watchful eye. a. (image via ned hardy.)

joy johnson, the oldest female to complete the NYC marathon on sunday, died hours after finishing the race. she was 86. at around mile 20 of the 26.2 mile run, johnson fell and hit her head. she was taken to a first aid tent, but insisted on finishing the race. sunday's run was her 25th consecutive appearance in the marathon. she even managed to make it the next morning to the "today" show, where she has made more than a decade of post-race appearances. she died later in her sleep at her hotel. "We're all stunned and sad but in a way, when you talk to a lot of people who knew her, this is the way she wanted to go," her daughter said. you, my dear, are a badass. RIP. a.
