Morning Debriefing 8/16/11
3) Humblebrag’s got their Power Rankings for August and we just have to say, “Really, Steve Nash? Really?”.
4) Scott Gairdner’s Clip Cup basically tells Tosh.0 to eat its heart out.
5) The national storytelling series, The Moth, just announced their fall themes for the upcoming months of their storyslams/storytelling open mics.
6) Marc Maron gets interviewed by Splitsider and has “This Has To Be Funny” reviewed by A.V. Club. In talking to him in passing last night, we reaffirm our answer, “Yes Marc, it definitely works as an album.”
8) “Jumping the Shark” = “Going Harold & Kumar”-This is probably our most incendiary post to date at the Nerdist, but what’s more amazing than the grab bag of vicious comments is the fact that people actually stuck around after the credits of Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.
