Welcome back to Trending Topics, our weekly recap of all things stupid, this week we discuss Natalie Portman, Tyson Gay, McKayla Maroney, Mars Rover and more.
As always we are joined by noted celebritologist and Ninja Tunes recording artist Blockhead.
This week marks the 95th time we have taken this ride together, and quite frankly it's getting stale. So with that, we are going to take this fucker up to 100 and call it a day. We hope it isn't the last time we see our friend Blockhead and will keep you posted as to the future of Tim and Blockhead talking about things.
You can order his new album Interludes After Midnight,
The thing I always admired about Natalie Portman is that she can make that "Hey I might cry" face without going all Jennifer Garner "I look like I just sharted" with it.
Oh, Sweet Portman. You were once one of my faves. Then you had a baby and got married. It's amazing how easily a girl can just vanish of a dudes radar.
We have a strict one "make fun of a person with a funny last name" joke policy here at SYFFAL, so I will leave this one in the capable and large hands (ladies?!) of Blockhead.
Coming in forth can't be the worst thing ever for a guy who grew up with the last name gay. I'd imagine every day in high school was a 4th place finish.
Poor McKayla, it really is a shame, that her parents decided to give her a made up name like McKayla.
She's a pole vaulter or something? That's one of those sports that, outside of the Olympics, has not point in existing. So considering that, does the difference between being first or second best in the world really matter?
I am pretty stoked on this. I am always game for sending shit to other places, even if it just means we take a sweet ass remote control care and drive it around until the battery dies.
I dunno…this is cool and all but I really only wanna watch Mars if Michael Bay is involved.
Terrell Owens has joined the Seahawks. This is the worst thing to happen to Seattle since AMC's The Killing.
At this point he's kinda like the football equivalent to when old rappers from the 90's try and put out relevant music in 2012. He's basically a new KRS-One album.
Apparently chemo helps to accelerate cancer. Great now I am going to have to keep hearing about herbal remedies from Joel.
Wait, Chemo helps cancer grow? This is like the time I found out that dried mango's have tons of sugar in them and are actually kinda bad for you…except a bazillion times worse.
The cast of Roseanne reunited during her Comedy Central Roast. I can't tell you how excited I am to find out which cast member looks more like a middle aged lesbian, Sara, CJ or Dan.
I'm psyched to see the Roseanne roast. Mostly cause she's actually a respectable (if not a little crazy) person who has done some great things .For once, these roasts might not feel like watching people beat a handicapped person to death.
It was 50 years ago that Yankee legend Joe Dimagio killed Marilyn Monroe. That's how it happened right? We all know the Yankees are inheritantly evil right?
Man, America and Marilyn Monroe, we can't enough of her. I figured by now, anyone who gave a shit about her was either dead or too old to use a computer.
I really don't know why he is trending, nor do I care, Mac is gold in my book. My book has deleted the My Girl chapter.
Mac's been looking like he's been on heroin lately. Either that or he's studying up for his role the "The Machinist 2". Either way, he's pretty high in my death pool.
Serena is crip walking now? Game is gonna be so pissed.
I'm sure there were some people who were outraged by her crip walking after winning a gold medal but I'm also sure 99% of the people who saw were old as Fuck, had no idea what she was doing and probably racistly turned to their spouse and said "They sure do like dancing!" #america
