Wow. I don’t know who Nause is but put this song on in literally any event and you will calmly get up from whatever you are doing, walk to the nearest club, and begin drinking heavily and hitting on random girls. Why is this not the #1 song in America right now? This is legitimately one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. You can actually tell I’m listening to the song as I type this, since I am getting more and more excited with each word I type. From the word “calmly” to now, it has been 3 seconds. I feel like I just did about 6 drugs at once. Can’t keep sitting here…..leaving now…..enjoy the long weekend, happy “get blackout with old high school friends while seeing who got fat” night, don’t get a DUI, and happy thanksgiving from all of us at NSD.
In our very first post back in March of 2011, we wondered whether Mila Kunis or Natalie Portman was hotter. It’s crazy even to think back to a moment in time when this was even a debate. Mila Kunis is currently in that realm that very few women in time have reached: the undisputed girl that literally every guy in the world is in love with. Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawsett, Heather Locklear, Pamela Anderson, and now Kunis. Girls that can claim this title are not only unbelievably hot, there’s something about them that seems…relateable. That it wouldn’t be inconceivable to actually hook up with this girl. That you could hang out with her all day long, go to see a movie, shoot the shit, and forget that she is the sexiest woman alive. Mila Kunis, we were posting about you in 2011, we are posting about you now, and I’m sure we’ll be posting about you next year as well. Until our first date, Mila, godspeed. And congratulations on your win as Miss NSD 2012. P.S. Kunis just won Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, and this video came out. Watch this video. But probably not at work. Over/under disgusted female co-worker stares is set at 4, I went way over.
Happy Halloween from all of us here at NSD. Obviously I realize that Halloween is on the 31st, but unless you are under the age of about 16 then you know that this weekend is when all the biggest costume parties will happen. If you aren’t planning on going out this weekend you clearly navigated to this website by mistake and you should immediately click the back button on your browser. Obviously everyone in the world is going out this weekend, but I know another group is actually out there reading this–those that aren’t dressing up. ”Oh that’s so lame why would I put effort into dressing up.” ”Dude who cares it’s not a big deal I’ll just tell them I’m going as myself.” Listen assholes, dress up. Somewhere along the lines somebody much smarter than any of us somehow convinced girls aged 18-30 that since it was Halloween you are allowed to dress as slutty as humanly possible for that one night a year. A girl wants to go as a witch? Suddenly it’s a “slutty witch.” If every guy thought like you, guy I’m talking to who is not planning on dressing up, then girls wouldn’t either and then it would just be a normal weekend. Go to the store, buy something, and wear it. Please. Happy Halloween.
Just came across this remix of Aloe Blacc’s skirt jam of an original “I Need a Dollar,” which was used as the theme song in the underrated “How to Make it in America” which was devastatingly cancelled despite my public appeal which garnered millions of devoted NSD readers in my attempts. People sneeringly called it “An Entourage rip-off in New York City.” What? Why are you sneering? Sounds like a great description of a show, and it was. Either way, this remix is great and the video is worth a watch if only for the shots of NYC. This video alone should get the rest of the NSD staff in DC on a train up to visit me. I know you see this GaddafiDuck and DJStrongIsland. Enjoy the weekend.
Yesterday I posted about dramas and talked about how I hadn’t ever met anyone in my life who actually watches any of the highest rated shows. It is MUCH, MUCH worse for comedies. Two and Half Men? The Big Bang Theory? Mike and Molly? Literally any show on CBS (other than How I Met Your Mother, which I like watching reruns of. Pretty sure the new ones are supposedly terrible though)? WHO WATCHES THESE SHOWS? COME FORWARD. Seriously I want to meet someone and talk to them. I want to meet them, learn about their interests, try to understand how they ever got to the place in life where they sit down and watch these shows. With comedy it’s a lot harder to make a poll with the few shows that universally are loved by the world outside Two and a Half Men. Comedy is clearly extremely subjective, more than any other genre, so there’s no way we’ll ever agree. And in the comedy world, there is a split–there are those comedies seen as the “best,” like Louie and Girls, which both are great in their own ways but no one would try to say they are actually the “funniest” shows on TV. They’re poignant and completely original, and while they have bursts of hilariousness, you aren’t going to sit there laughing as hard as you do when you watch the other group–The League, Modern Family, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, New Girl, etc. Not sure where to place Curb Your Enthusiasm, but probably somewhere in between. But notice I said “what is the best comedy” in the title, not “what is the funniest.” My vote goes to Louie, but I like everything else that I listed. I’ll throw in some others for argument’s sake. Cast your vote below. And if you watch any of the CBS shows I listed reveal yourself in the comments section.
Does anyone know anyone who watches CSI? Or NCIS? Or Law and Order: (any of them. How many are there now? Are we down to 1? Are there still like 7?) Or those firefighter shows? Or any of those lawyer shows? Or literally any drama on any network? It’s bizarre that these shows are the biggest hits in the world, and yet I literally have never met ANYONE, EVER, who watches them. And I live in New York City which is allegedly a melting pot of people from around the world. That said, I’m sure there places in Wichita, Kansas (sorry for all the Wichita NSD fans out there, I am just pulling that name out of thin air. At the end of the day more people from Turkey read this site than Kansas so I’m not worried) there’s no one that watches any of the shows I’m going to throw in the ring for the best show currently on TV. At least the Emmy’s have finally figured this out too, nominating all dramas this year for Emmys. The poll is below, and vote away. From my perspective it’s probably Breaking Bad just because of it’s consistency over time, with 10-15 truly unbelievable episodes. The others I put on the list are probably too new to crown as the best, but after the first two Homeland’s of this year I have high hopes. And Game of Thrones–people who claim that “it’s too slow” and “not enough happened last season” should probably just go watch David Caruso investigate crime scenes on CSI Miami. The show has about 6,000 pages of material to work with, sorry it’s not going to have a huge reveal at the end of every episode. Check back tomorrow for the best comedy. If you were wondering I realize this is completely untimely. I realize the Emmy’s already happen. I just feel like posting about this. This is the beauty of having a blog.
I don’t really need to say anything more than what the title of this said but I’ll make a couple comments I guess. If you were watching the Emmy’s a couple weeks back you obviously were cheering for Aaron Paul to win for the truly incredible show Breaking Bad (maybe the best show on TV. It’s hard to tell with Game of Thrones and Homeland but it’s in the conversation) when they flashed over to him and oh my god….who is his girlfriend…..She is legitimately one of the hottest girls I’ve ever seen. I was in a room of 5 guys (you guys don’t sit around with your bros and watch the Emmys on Sunday nights? Listen we were switching back and forth between football and that) and there was just a long silence followed by a “ohh……..who…..” She elicited that reaction across the country, Twitter tells me. The pictures maybe don’t do her justice, you should have seen her during the show. Just seemed cool as shit and so happy. She also is legitimately not a celebrity at all which is pretty awesome, there are basically no pictures of her on the internet without Aaron Paul standing next to her making a smirk that says “yeah fuck you i’m a millionaire emmy winning actor and I’m getting married to this girl.” Yep that’s right–he’s engaged. Aaron Paul–keep living the dream. Full gallery (all 10 pictures) after the jump. Continue reading →
When I posted last year’s tomorrowland video I made some dumbass comment about how it was probably one of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Now I use superlatives and exaggerations a lot, as you probably know from reading these posts. Last week the Tomorrowland 2012 after movie came out, and I’m not going to use a superlative. I’m just going to ask the question, “Is this the greatest video of all time?” I’m not saying anything because I’m sure next year’s will be somehow better than this, but thinking of that is mind boggling. If you don’t know, Tomorrowland is basically the mecca for house music. Like casual house music fans will go to clubs on saturday nights and have a good time and maybe go to an avicii show here or there. Intense house music fans will go to a bunch of festivals a year, EDC, Electric Zoo, maybe even fly out to a few. But everyone knows that one guy who goes to 3-4 shows every week and flies around the world for electronic music shows. That guy has probably been to this. Well after watching this video it is time for the NSD to move up a notch and take the plunge. There is absolutely no way I’m missing this shit next year. Oh my god. Just watch the video.
Everyone has girls like Krysten Ritter. Girls that aren’t hot in a normal way. Girls that when you say you think they are amazingly hot the whole group laughs and tells you that you’re an idiot. Krysten Ritter was like that for me. She wore boots in movies, was kind of gothic, was pale, and had a great sense of humor. She had a great role in Breaking Bad, only strengthening my adoration (Breaking Bad unbelievable show by the way if you haven’t seen). She was hilarious in She’s Out of My League as the bitchy best friend. But then she just went ahead and said “oh hey everyone who thought I was just some punk girl with a good sense of humor, look at me in Esquire…” And wow. Ritter posed for the always great Me in my Place spread for Esquire and left any doubt aside on whether she is hot or not. She now stars in the truly terrible looking “Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23″ that you couldn’t put a gun to my head to make me watch. But Ritter. Wow. NSD Approved. In my mind anyway….am I still alone? Gallery after the jump. Continue reading →
I don’t think I need to tell you this, but if you are reading this after 3PM today then you need to calmly navigate away from this page, get on the train or in your car, and head to the beach. If you haven’t checked a calendar in awhile, this is the second to last weekend of the summer. Obviously you have plans for next weekend already since it’s labor day, but make this one count too. When you’re walking around in January in the pitch black in your jacket, you’ll thank me. If you still don’t feel motivated, listen to this song. You’ll want to have fun afterward, I promise. This guy Justin Blau, (goes by 3Lau) is great in general as a side note.
