I'm a big fan of singer-songwriter (and poet) Leonard Cohen but I've never seen him in concert. Thanks to three new DVDs, I have a chance to experience him live and through the perspective of his fellow artists.
Each week, I post the five funniest videos from the past week right here. And this was the week that began with Rick Sanchez and ended with Carl Paladino.
The 2010-11 television season has only just begun and it's already taking several unexpected twists and turns, resulting in important lessons and interesting observations for all. Here are ten of them.
TV was back in a big way this week, and the stand-by comedies did not disappoint. It's hard to say the same for the new shows (did anyone like Outsourced?).
This is not a scripted reality show with casting; "MTV Hired" got access to companies actually doing some hiring and then filmed the process from both the employer's and candidate's perspectives.
Earlier this week, Steve Carell told BBC Radio that next season would likely be his final one as lovable boob Michael Scott on The Office. If this rin...
It started pretty badly. At one point, Ricky Gervais said it was the most difficult interview he'd ever done - and he was using "difficult" in the same way that someone says a dress is "interesting" when they mean "horrible".

Our goal is to give LA a page of its own, where bloggers can express themselves on the issues that matter to them -- whether they're substantive, sublime, simple or just plain fun.
British comic Ricky Gervais has one kicky concept behind his directorial debut, The Invention of Lying. On an alternate earth, humanity lacks the capacity for lying so truth-telling is just telling.
I find it terribly depressing that we are all anesthetized by screens wherever we go. How can I feel that way since while away countless hours in front of another screen? Is it because this one lets me talk to it?
Gervais and his co-writer/director create one premise, then seem to shift to something else - and then to something else again. But the conceptual problems are less troubling than the essential shortage of laughs.
Explosions and mechanical mayhem have supplanted plot and character at the movies and thus, the simple art of storytelling has moved into living rooms. Where plots develop and characters grow, sex happens.
School isn't so bad when you're making it a better place, like they did in the 80's documentary, 21 Jump Street!
