SPOILER ALERT (technically, I don’t think I should have to say this because the episode already aired, but just in case…)

I can’t believe it either. While watching Pitbull, who was looking like a terrible Men’s Warehouse sales model on the American Music Awards, I totally missed out one of the biggest shockers in animated TV history. Seth MacFarlane‘s flagship series Family Guy killed off one of it’s most compelling characters, Brian the Family Dog.

WHAT?!
WHY?!

Not only does Brian get hit by a car–a way mundane way for a high IQ, novel-writing, cross-species-dating, tap-dancing dog to go — but Peter Griffin and family even replace him with a new dog, Vinny. Voiced by Tony Sirico. So, basically a dog version of Paulie Walnuts. Maron!

Watch the sad Family Guy montage of key Brian moments as he lays on his final veterinarian office deathbed…and the executive producers explanation for killing off TV’s smartest canine.

Kris Jenner might have a slew of titles under the belt (manager, mogul, talk show host, mother, wife), but “a drink” hasn’t been one of them — until now. In a recent visit to her new talk-show, KRIS, Diddy Claus surprised the Jenner queen by naming a drink after her. “The GLAMA,” as it’s called, looks like a refreshing Summer thirst-quencher for all the glamorous grandma’s out there enjoying retired life.

goat

Not sure what this goat zeitgeist is all about. But these stinky, noisy, farm animals are friggin’ everywhere. Goats schilling for Doritos, Goat’s milk kefir > Gogurt, Goats yelling like humans. And now, Tyler the Creator has directed a series of Mountain Dew soda commercials, starring a belligerent (I guess that’s the baseline personality for goats anyways) goat named Felicia.
Um. Ok.

Watch Tyler’s Felicia The Goat x Mountain Dew clip…
But more importantly…watch the “goats screaming like humans” video.
No comparison!!!

eddie huang

The homie Eddie Huang, a.k.a. Mr. Fresh Off the Boat, made his TED Fellowship official last night as he gave a speech at the TED 2013 conference in Long Beach, California. The restauranteur-slash-writer-slash-hip-hop nerd recalled his first encounter with racism, and explained how his initial reaction — to fight back and distance himself from the dominant culture — only served to isolate him. It was on a trip to Taiwan when he realized that living without these barriers would allow him to live a full and free life. Always with the dope insight. Check out some audience-filmed footage of Eddie’s speech below.

(You throw a chair? Marva picks up a table.)

I’m not really the type to surf WSHH all day watching pregnant hookers fight in the parking lot. But still, I was completely hypnotized by the brawl that popped off at a Gay and Transvestite Fashion Ball in North Carolina (Spotted on Sandra Rose). This is the best 4:98 minutes of chaotic aggression to suck you out of your sedentary cubicle coma. There are windmill punches, flying chairs, squeals, mini-stampedes…an enormous woman named Marva who picks up an 8-foot picnic table and hurls it across the room at her enemies. The action comes in waves. There is allegedly a man wielding an ax. Also a hammer. There is someone who sparks up a stun-gun to show that he is serious. There is fur.

(In the 2014 Sochi Olympics: Marva’s picnic table discus.)

Yes, it’s totally random,
Yes, it’s ignorant behavior…but it didn’t seem like anyone got seriously injured.
Just watch it. Like a palate cleanser.

eddie
Eddie Huang, resident “Based FOB” and restaurateur, brings us a XXX tour of Miami for his VICE docu-series Fresh Off the Boat. In part 1, Eddie and his film crew explore two aphrodisiacs that drive hunger: food porn and real porn. ”Yo, it will be cool to just take a porn star out to eat because I’m convinced that y’all are just as normal as everybody else, but probably more normal,” he says in the video. And that he did. Riding around Miami on the Bangbus (I’ll give you a minute to google), Eddie takes porn star Jada Stevens out to his favorite fritas joint and an Argentinian restaurant in between her, um, work breaks. Disclaimer: shots of sizzling steak are extremely sexy and graphic.

action bronson 48 hours

A standard interview with Action Bronson is funny enough, so you know a full 48 hours with the guy is going to be pretty hilarious. Noisey did just that back in December, when they followed the stocky Queens MC around for two days during his stop in London on the European leg of his tour. Highlights include Bam Bam going “trainer” shopping, jumping into the crowd at the Highbury Garage, out-smoking Tim Westwood and letting a fan get on the mic at his show at the Candy Store. It’s clear the U.K. has got love for Bronson.

Watch Noisey’s 48 hours with Action Bronson, plus watch Bam Bam compete in a chef-off at Milan’s “Al Mercato” restaurant, after the jump…

guy-fieri-drake-instagram

In the instagram rap game, there is a sliding scale for likely to unlikely meet-ups and mash-ups. Diddy and Kanye? Likely. E-40 and Miguel? Pretty likely. Drake and Guy Fieri? File under “hilariously unlikely.” The above photo surfaced late last night without any real context: Is Drake trying his hand at donkey sauce? Did Drake serve up customers at Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar restaurant (which received a scathing review from The New York Times)? Whatever the occasion, the YMCMB rapper seems to stand by the peroxide-diner-connoisseur in midst of all his bad publicity.

eddie-huang-dad-FOB

In his third and final segment of the “Fresh Off The Boat: Taiwan” video series, Eddie Huang recruits his dad to send off his tour in Taipei. The Huangs first pay a revisit to Din Tai Fung restaurant, where Eddie has been snacking on their savory soup dumplings since he was 12 years old. He and his camera crew then go behind-the-scenes to show how the tiny baos are artfully and meticulously created. Before rounding off his three-part Taiwanese journey, Eddie makes one last stop to his grandpa’s spiritual resting spot to pay forth his respect and remembrance.
