I’m Pretty Excited About Anchorman 2

That title is an understatement. While I’m usually not one to get irrationally excited for a movie, if only because that inevitably leads to disappointment and stupid fanboy butthurt, I’m really, really, really excited about Anchorman 2’s official existence. I went into the first Anchorman with no expectations at a very impressionable point in my life. Therefore, so much of who I am now is a result of that movie. Everything from my love of nonsense humor to my love of journalism to even my love of movies can be directly traced back to that 2004 classic. It has even allowed me to be totally okay with the fact that Will Ferrell plays the same character in mostly everything he does. Endlessly quotable and funny as hell, Anchorman has consistently been my favorite movie of all time.

So how do you top that? I actually don’t think it’ll be that hard. Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have pretty much spent the last eight years making sequels to Anchorman just with different premises. Go watch Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and The Other Guys and try to tell me I’m wrong. The thing is though, those movies are all great. As long as Anchorman 2 is at least as funny as they are but with jazz flute playing and retarded weathermen it should be just fine.

I’m Jordan Minor?

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is pretty good too.

Liar's Day

Out of the numerous ways the internet and its stupid culture have improved the world, the increased relevance they have given to April Fool's Day is one of the more overlooked ones. Sure, when you are a kid straight up lying to your friends and family is fun on one level. However, now we get to see huge corporations like Google spending lots of actual time and money making videos purely for the sake of trolling. It's a glorious, new digital age we live in.

Don't have time/don't want to come up with any new jokes so here's this thing I did a few years ago.
