Welcome back to Trending Topics, our weekly recap of all things stupid, this week we discuss Adam Yauch, Avengers, Eli Manning, Marco Rubio, Francois Hollande and More.
As always we are joined by noted celebritologist and Ninja Tunes recording artist Blockhead.
You can order his new album Interludes After Midnight, which just dropped on April 30th here.
Avengers cracked all the box office records, included the coveted "most 30 year old males spending a disproportionate amount of time obsessing over a movie for children and somehow making it about them" record.
It's like they took 5 shitty superhero movies, slapped them into one big movie and added up all their box office sales. Kinda makes sense.
Eli hosted SNL and you know what, it wasn't half bad, it was more like 1/3rd bad.
I watched it and he was pretty good. I mean, Peyton was funnier but, you know Peyton is better at everything.
Rubio spent the weekend slamming Obama for bringing up Bin laden and questioning if Romney would have made the same call. This from a guy who's party did everything they could to paint Obama as a terrorist 4 years ago. As always the Repubs play victimhood and fake shock better than anyone.
If Republicans had killed Osama, Bush would have carried his head around like that dude in "Dead Presidents". I love when Republicans get up in arms about some shit they wouldn't done X1000000. I think Obama's entire campaign should be Bin Laden's autopsy pics.
The French elected Francois Hollande, a Socialist, their new prime minister, they also put mayonaise on their fries. Who gives a Fuck about what they do?
He's a Socialist, but does he bone hot women on yachts? That's really all I wanna know about French prime ministers.
I am glad the guy that is going to be in his mid 30s and really likes smoking weed needed to tell us that this is his last Olympics, because we all know how kind the 30s are to weed heads.
What do Olympic athletes do after they retire? Swimming is a pretty limited skill set. I mean, I'm sure there's some cushy lifeguard work lined up for Phelps but still...
Is anyone shocked that a guy from Philadelphia has rage issues and expresses them through violence? I am more shocked that he isn't obese. It's Philly, they are all fat, angry white dudes.
Props to him for telling the truth. I wish more athletes would. All this "it was the will of god" shit is tiresome. I'm way cooler with "Well, uh, Fuck that dude…I don't like him so I threw a hardball at his face" (I'm paraphrasing)
Why the fuck is this person even a national news story, a white trash fucker did some fucked up shit with their child? OH SHIT! STOP THE PRESSES AND SET UP A PANEL OF EXPERTS TO SPEND THE NEXT WEEK TALKING SHIT!
This bitch is so tan she's pretty much racist. Didn't Ted Danson get into some shit for doing blackface in 90's? This woman took that and raised it to that other level. Ol' Amos N' Andy ass bitch.
Arne Duncan, another member of the Obama Administration came out in support of gay marriage. Right now it seems like the only person in that administration against it is Obama.
What's the big deal? A smart person thinks gay marriage should be legal. At this point, if you're still adamantly opposed to gay marriage I just assume the internet hasn't reached your town yet.
That shit was mad big yo!
Man, I'll never forget where I was when I heard about the super moon. It was right here, right now, just reading the topic "Super moon".
This was a bummer. I was never the biggest Beasties fan but I was always happy they were around to shake shit up and remind us that music should be as fun as it is powerful. RIP MCA!
I was lucky enough to know Yauch a little via a weekly basketball game I play in. He was a really sweet and humble guy. No jokes to be made here. RIP.
