Doug Benson and Karen Anderson are the hosts of The Nerdist’s Dining with Doug and Karen podcast. In this special episode, they are joined by singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb and their buddy Wolvesmouth. The two hosts talk about movies, including The Life of Pi.
Loeb, who is a vegetarian and had a cooking show, talks about her newly released album, life from her teenage years without Internet, Youtube, et al. She also discusses Led Zeppelin, her experience with meeting Elton John, missing the Grammys, princess books for her child, the feeling of seeing Prince for the first time, getting together with her band members, working out too hard with exhausting cardio, and more.
Wolvesmouth, on the other hand, cooks something special for everyone in the program, including a mouth-watering vegetable salad for Loeb.
The latest craze in the world of internet specifically in Youtube is the Harlem Shake. This video has become viral within a week, and while at first it was kinda hilarious (the original version), but with everyone doing their own versions, it got pretty old quickly. Not to be mean, but some versions just didn’t get it right.
Now these particular video — Call of Duty versions — might have killed this viral dance step. It’s hilarious because the main character shoots every jerk in uniform doing the dance moves, thus making the statement straight to the point.
You’ve got to see these videos, and if you hate those moves or just the music, they will do you a favor.
Country singer Mindy McCready has died at age 37 in an apparent suicide. According to a confirmation by Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office, her body was found with a single gunshot wound at the front porch of her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas on 3:31 pm, Sunday. Deputies have responded to 911 calls of gunfire report.
McCready’s body is at the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy probing her death.
About a month ago, her boyfriend David Wilson passed away and investigation is still ongoing. It was then that her struggles with drugs and alcohol started and were featured in Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew season 3 in which she also appeared. Her two children were removed from her custody as she started to be verbally abusive with her eldest son.
The singer rose to fame in 1996 with her chart-topping debut Ten Thousand Angels and one of the hit single was Guys Do It All the Time.
Your regular alcohol-based nightcap may help you sleep faster, but do you know that a recent review shows how these “few” drinks can be harmful to one’s health?
Alcohol is an anathema for sleep. According to studies and researchers that have conducted experiments and found that any amount of alcohol could alter sleep, and the larger number of alcohol you consume, the worse effects there are. Drinking just two drinks can cut your REM sleep, which is very important to our health and memory.
Findings say that insufficient and disrupted sleep have been linked to weight gain, heart trouble, and memory issues.
Carrie Underwood has joined Instagram and she posted a photo of herself wearing an oxygen mask during her February 14 show in Broomfield, Colorado.

Spilled Milk is a show that mixes food and comedy in a bowl, then stirs it up until it explodes. Molly Wizenberg and Matthew Amster-Burton host the podcast and they feature tips, recipes, and more.
Episode 84 is about fruits in the can. Remember those times when you crave for fruit and you open up a can of say fruit cocktail, or peaches, or pineapples, pears, etc. and with it is a heavy syrup? Molly and Matthew discuss their memorable experiences here when they were kids, the ones that come with openers and other sizes like that of Del Monte or Dole cans.
Discussing canned peaches and fruit cocktail in syrup got me salivating, and as Molly eats some of it (you’ll hear it on the mic), it will make you want to eat some as well.
This is not the kind of scene you want to see on a morning driving to work or going to school. A meteor was seen falling from the sky in Russia’s Ural Mountains causing destruction, panic, and injury. As of late, more than 400 people were reportedly injured and had sought medical emergency assistance. At least three are in serious condition and are currently hospitalized.
Many of the victims suffered injuries from falling debris and broken glass caused by the explosion. Meteor fragments fell in the Chelyabinsk region, according to the Emergency Ministry. No deaths have been reported but President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev are constantly being updated on the situation.
Different reports however are uncertain whether it was a meteor shower or just a single meteorite. Authorities in Chelyabinsk city have urged the people to stay at home unless they’re picking up their children from school.
Here’s an early video footage from a car passenger:
Living in a fast-paced busy world is tiring, stressful, and unhealthy. Exercise is one good and inexpensive way to relieve stress and recharge the body. But the problem is, in most cases, when people are advised to add some exercise in their routine, the number one reason for not doing so is lack of time.
So in this Fitbottomedgirls podcast episode, we’ll be given a rundown of exercises which you can do even if you’re in front of your computer, no equipment needed. Just 10 reps each and you’re ready to go. You can do it in 5, 10, 15 minutes. If you’re feeling a bit sleepy or slow down, this will keep your energy levels up.
Trainer Amanda Russell shows us this great workout and its modifications to make the moves applicable to all exercise levels.
Kobe Bryant’s unusual subpar performance at last Tuesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns could have been the big news as he only scored 4 points and committed 8 turnovers, but it didn’t really matter even if they won the game 91-85 as actor Will Ferrell was present at the Staples Center and played a role of a security guard and did his crazy antics once again.
Ferrell, who frequents the Laker games, was on his security guard persona as “Ted Vagina” and ejected Shaq during the game. Well as dull as the game was, Ferrell’s antics probably made Shaq appreciate it. So if ever acting may not turn out good for Ferrell, perhaps he’s got another career to move on to.
The scene however is uncertain if it’s a part of a movie shoot as he’s wearing that Ron Burgundy-styled mustache, which has started its production.
