We've been doing our own March Madness Bracket on the show for a couple of years now, and this time it's Great Moments In Local News. It includes all the best fails, staged stories, and ridiculous interviews that you could want. Except one. Possibly the greatest ridiculous...
If you've never heard of Pomplamoose before, you're not alone. They got lots of attention across the wilds of Facebook for their YouTube cover/mashup of several Pharrell songs. And deservedly so, because it's kind of great. It's a lot like their Lorde/Beck/2Pac mashup from last...
We've recently taken to playing a clip on the show where some guy yells: "Interruption Number Three! Nick, you get worse every day!" Well, here's the video that started it all. The premise is simple: a kid does an impression of his history teacher (who's obviously one of those...
I've been hearing it for a while now, and I finally saw it for myself: there's some doppelganger of me out there making Time Warner Cable commercials. While my name is Alex and I actually do use TWC in my home, I am not this guy, I do not have his devices, and I am not getting...

This is an unfortunate trend: blogging about food twice in a row. I will say, though, that I was forced to post this one. Apparently Deb did not find my sandwich today acceptable. Look, if your bread is about to expire, what are you supposed to do? If you're me, you make Super...
Somehow my first blog is about something that has almost nothing to do with my life and will probably not blog about ever again. That being said, I am a culinary master. Yesterday with no trainig whatsoever (okay, I did watch this YouTube video of an old man telling me how to...
