Welcome back to Trending Topics, our weekly recap of all things stupid, this week we discuss Justin Bieber, Steve Carell, Brave, US Track and Field 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, here.
Justin Bieber credits social media with his success, I credit the fact that 13 year old girls get amped about shit they are later mortified about for his success.
No shit bro. I think everyone doing anything entertainment related can thank social media for their success. It's not like there's that off-internet billionaire hill people music that everyone's talking about.
Carell just dropped a new movie called Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. Block will probably shit on it because he is still in his 30s and hasn't embraced his sensitive side yet, but me, I saw it and fucking loved it.
Big fan of Carrell but not a big fan of Rom-com's. When added together they equal "movie I will watch on cable, half paying attention while playing online scrabble"
The new Pixar movie won the weekend box office this week, and while I usually love Pixar movies I don't think I will see this one because Irish people annoy the shit out of me with their fair skin and obsession with green.
Am I the only person alive who doesn't give a shit about Pixar movies? Seriously…I get that they're clever and look amazing but you people realize they're made for children, right? I don't watch them for the same reason I don't eat cake for breakfast.
Must be Olympic season if anyone is paying a lick of attention to this sport, I am much more interested in things like Lobster Roll.
Track and field is one of those things that is both impressive and fairly worthless. I sure as hell couldn't do what these mega-athletes could…but I also wouldn't really want to.
Sandusky plans to appeal his conviction on 45 accounts of child molestation charges good luck with finding a group of people who are sensitive to you plight creep.
I wonder what it feels like to see so much joy in peoples eyes when they hear you're gonna die in prison. Hopefully when he dies they will turn his corpse into an honorary urinal or something. Simply serving life seems like he got off easy.
Answer: Homeboy suffered a mild heart attack. Question: Who is Alex Trebek? I'll take Potent Potables for $400.
First Richard Dawson dies, now Alex Trebek has a heart attack. Wink Martindale must be locked in a panic room right now holding a loaded shotgun.
He won the NASCAR Sprint Cup more proof that the summer sucks for sports.
Yeee haw! Pardon me while I go square dance and beat my wife in celebration of whoever this fucking guy is and whatever he accomplished.
Mars has snowflakes which means Mars probably also has assholes who are really into shredding on their snowboards bro!
If i was religious and had kids, I'd tell them that snow was gods dandruff, also that our rain is sweat from when god runs on his giant space elliptical.
The Red Sox traded Youk to the White Sox for pennies on the dollar, then again getting even pennies back for a broken item at a garage sales seems like a win.
I'm sure Alaska is devastated but I can't see why anyone wouldn't be happy to leave Boston for a far superior city.
James Marsden is having a bastard child after a one night stand with a Brazilian super model. So this dude had unprotected sex with a Brazilian and managed to not catch AIDS? Getting off with just a kid must sounds like dodging one hell of a bullet.
If you're gonna have super sperm and blow it inside a girl, it might as well be a Brazilian model. I mean even if you don't wanna be the father, you're just genetically improving the world. I'd say being a good dad is secondary to that.
