The Intervention Might Just Be the Dramedy of the Year
Clea DuVall’s debut as a writer/director is a pretty damn fine one.
Her film, The Intervention, following a “marriage intervention” is simultaneously well crafted, emotionally charged, and laugh out loud hysterical. The notable ensemble cast of Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Ben Schwartz, Natasha Lyonne, DuVall, Alia Shawkat, and Vincent Piazza do not disappoint either in handling the delicate material.
If you want more comedy in your dramedies or want to see something that exhibits the real nitty gritty of several different relationships, but does actually celebrate the idea of love without seeming too heavy handed, The Intervention just might be for you.

Weird Al Yankovic Is Uniting the Internet with His #8Videos8Days and Might Be On His Way to a #1 Album
To our knowledge, there hasn’t been such an expansive rollout of music videos over so many brands that make or host original content and, as you might imagine, this move has gotten Yankovic has gotten tons of views and a #1 album overall on iTunes as well as possible #1 album on Billboard.
For any album, not just a musical comedy parody album, that’s impressive.
