A wonderful, fascinating, hilarious scene from episode two of Louie on F/X. Not even close to being safe for work. Featuring provocations from Jim Norton and Nick DiPaolo, charm from Eddie Brill and past TSOYA performer Hannibal Burress and patient insight from Rick Crom.
Our friend Mr. John Hodgman did a wonderful Daily Show segment this week on America's Favorite Sport, soccer aka football.
This was Beyonce's first solo single - a track from the Austin Powers 2 soundtrack. Produced by the Neptunes. One of my favorite Beyonce songs even now. This was one of the Neptunes most productive periods - after they'd established their signature sound, and started to get a little odd. I'm also a big fan of their album Clones, from right around this same time. Roscoe P. Coldchain's "Hot", which featured Pusha T from the Clipse and Boobonic from Philly's Most Wanted still bangs. Anyway, this Beyonce song is a jam. Sorry about all the Austin Power in the video.

What news could be better than the news that Paul Reubens is working on a script for a new Pee-Wee movie at the behest of producer Judd Apatow?
Holy cow, right? HOLY COW.
This week, we're really getting around to a few of our favorite podcasts.
I'm the guest on this week's Never Not Funny with Jimmy Pardo and Matt Belknap. You can listen to the free version of the show here. That's the first twenty minutes or so. Of course, if you want to listen to the whole thing, you'll have to become a Primo subscriber. For twenty bucks, you get six months worth of Never Not Funny. As our pal Nathan Rabin of the AV Club tweeted a couple days ago: "I cannot recommend the premium Never Not Funny subscription highly enough. What a joy."
Jordan and I also appeared on this week's season finale of the comedy series Superego. Also guesting on the big finale were Paul F. Tompkins, Tom Scharpling and more. It's a truly crazy show, and one we both like a lot. In fact, we're using some of their stuff on The Sound of Young America. Worth your time!
