I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

One of the greatest television shows of all time came to an end Sunday with the series finale of Breaking Bad. Without going into spoilery detail about this last episode, the finale was truly satisfying for fans of the show. Often times, even great shows can have disappointing endings that leave storylines ambiguous and questions unanswered. Breaking Bad wrapped up fully, touching on nearly every main character and plot point. Alas, it is still emotional to say goodbye to a beloved series. Thankfully, we’ll get a little more Bad with the latest spin-off, Huell’s Rules!

Just kidding. But the Better Call Saul spinoff is actually a go (although it is a comedy and will likely be a prequel, having nothing to do with Breaking Bad aside from the Saul character). Bad creator Vince Gilligan also has his next project lined up —a CBS cop drama titled Battle Creek, which Gilligan actually wrote for the network more than a decade ago. Cop drama? CBS?! OK…

Zooming in, you’ll find more than 1.2 billion people, in order of when the user first signed up for the soul-sucking site. Nothing but grains of sand, amirite? Check out The Faces of Facebook here.

While some of us are still trying to process Lifetime’s hot mess of a biopic, Anna Nicole, New York City Opera recently staged a show based on the ill-fated pop culture icon’s life (which happens to have the same inventive title). Read Vice’s glowing review (loljkjk). Anna Nicole Smith has her own opera. Wasn’t Anna Nicole the human a parody in and of herself?

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel are in a feud. It all started with Kimmel's sketch about the rapper’s recent BBC interview, which barely can be considered a parody as the child actor in “Kimmel Kid Re-Kreation” is directly quoting Kanye.

The skit rubbed ‘Ye the wrong way, sparking an onslaught of angry tweets (since deleted) and even a personal phone call to the late-night host. Kimmel, who was behind the viral “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” prank video, swears this is not a fake feud.

Pete and Pete have a podcast! Danny Tamberelli and Mike Maronna, co-stars of the ‘90s Nickelodeon series The Adventures of Pete & Pete and members of the Ginger Hall of Fame have teamed up on a new monthly podcast. The first episode takes the TV brothers to Portland, Ore., site of Petefest, an actual festival for Pete & Pete fans. Listen to the first installment of The Adventures Of Danny And Mike here.

Hate your job? Got a shitty boss? Live vicariously through this chick who quit her editing job at Next Media Animation (the folks who create those funny animated interpretations of “news stories” like Charlie Sheen’s 2010 reign of terror at the Plaza Hotel) by making her own viral video.
