  2. Tim and Eric Return to Advertising With Amazing New Old Spice Ads

    First, let me just say that I love Isaiah Mustafa. He's a beautiful man, and his ads were, and still are, fantastic. However, when Tim and Eric get back in the driver's seat for Old Spice advertising, it reaches a whole new level of amazing. These recent ads, which still feature the be-muscled Terry Crews as spokesman, are apparently too powerful to stay in their own commercials. You'll see what I mean. Also, there's something fantastic with a vending machine. Just...just watch them, below the break.

  10. Isaiah Mustafa Is Recording Epic Personal Response Videos AS WE SPEAK

    For the past many hours, the Old Spice twitter feed has been incredibly active. Old Spice poster boy and coolest man on the planet Isaiah Mustafa is recording personalized, hilarious response videos to many tweets, YouTube comments, and other methods of Internet speech, some of which aren't even directed at him. For example, if you ask Yahoo Answers how to do something totally manly, he might see it and give you a mention. And these videos aren't some backlog that Old Spice has decided to unleash all of a sudden today. These are happening right now! You want proof? I'll give you proof.

  11. The 2010 Emmy Nominations: Ultimate Geek-Out

    This morning, the 2010 Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced. And while that's generally exciting for a TV nerd such as myself, this is a system for geeks you're reading on. So I have embarked on an epic mission: I am going through all the nominations (not just the elitist ones that actually get into the televised awards show), category by category, to provide a full-on geek perspective. The only ones that shall be skipped are those with no good geeky offerings, or the ones where you don't even know what the name of the category means. In other words, here's everything that matters to a geeky television viewer. For reference and your personal knowledge-accumulating pleasure, here is the full list of nominees. For those of you who care more about which shows prevailed, here is the nomination summary, that just states number of nominations per program without specifying the categories. I'm going to be going in order through the categories as they appear in the full list linked above so that it's easy for you to follow along at home. Ready? Let's begin.
