This article is safe for work; I am just pointing you to another article over at The Atlantic that might be NSFW just because of language. The article is called “Hard Core” by Natasha Vargas-Cooper. It is a lengthy piece, looking at how pornography (in its infinitely distributed form since the internet-explosion) gives us a […]
If your knowledge of the TV show “Coupling” is limited to the US attempted remake of the BBC classic, then you owe it to yourself to watch the original series. Fortunately Hulu has your back as the original BBC series is now available in it’s entirety (which unfortunately was only 3 great series and a […]
What happens when you take your favorite pop songs (whether it be Bad Romance or Living on a Prayer) add a talented and passionate orchestra musician (Walt Ribeiro) then put the whole thing in the oven and bake it?

Emails from an Asshole: Real People Being Stupid is the book form of the hilariously ingenious (and simple) website by John Lindsay: DontEvenReply.com I only became aware of Emails from an Asshole (I will refer to this as EFAA from now on) after completing my read-through of Sh*t My Dad Says and enjoying it quite […]

We wrote about Stallone’s badass veiny arms a few years ago before Rambo IV and it looks like Stallone is back in the gym (10 hours a day from the looks of it) to make sure he looks awesome for The Expendables, his upcoming action flick with every single action hero ever from the 80s and […]
This is an unbelievably talented troop of Chinese gymnasts performing a routine that I can only imagine Jesus might attempt: Yes, yes you just saw a 4-man pole formed by people front-flipping inside of the pole to make it taller… I’m going to start learning Chinese so when they take us over, I can be assimilated easier.
In case you didn’t notice, Patrick is over at E3 this week and has been tweeting up a storm about what he’s been seeing. You can follow him here or wait for his nightly summaries of what is going on, what is sexy and if Kinect is retarded or not (spoiler: it is kinda fun).
Was just looking through DListed and saw that John Goodman has lost like 150 lbs recently… and the first thing, for whatever reason, that dawned on me was: “Goodman could be The Godfather if they ever did a remake”. See what you think, here he is now: and here is Marlon Brando: That shit is […]
In what I can only describe as an epic move of generosity that deserves some fanfare and attention – Keanu Reeves (the star of The Matrix series) has given $72 million of his own money to the costume and special effects teams from The Matrix. Hello! reports that when asked about the generous gift Keanu’s […]
For those of you that are fans of martial arts you’ve probably watched all the Bruce Lee “speed” videos on YouTube where you can see how fantastically fast Lee is. This is a video of Tommy Carruthers that looks to be pretty damn fast as well when demoing strikes: Watching another compilation video of his though […]
MTV has a new script-based comedy show coming out called “The Hard Times of RJ Berger”, the trailer they put together was pretty clever: I thought it was a trailer for a new season of Hung at first.

If you haven’t watched the last episode yet, please be aware of that and continue reading at your own risk. NOTE #2: I’m super-cereal guys, this post contains spoilers about […]
I heard on NPR.org yesterday that the entertainingly original Twitter account “Shit my Dad Says” is currently the hottest Pilot making the rounds in Hollywood right now. CBS has cast William Shatner as the “dad” saying all the shit and is currently trying to make room for the new show by pushing “Big Bang Theory” […]
<jumping around like a little kid with candy> I’ve been pretty clear from the beginning that I love alien movies… I don’t know why. Signs scared me to death, I couldn’t sleep for 3 days, Close Encounters was excellent and Independence Day was a useless piece of trash… ok so I like most alien movies. As […]
What is this ‘Giveaway’ Stuff? Here at Break it Down Blog we get things sent to us for review from time to time. After the review is over we need to clear off our shelves and we thought giving the items away to readers for just the cost of shipping would be a great way […]
I wanted to make this post because as highly distractable person who likes music, I almost always work in deafening silence. As much as I like music, I cannot work with it on because anytime a catchy tune comes on my brain refocuses its attention on the music instead of what I’m suppose to be doing. For […]
Ok so it’s a slow Sunday and I’m working my way around the web and finally decided to give the new animated series Archer a try over on Hulu (they have Episodes 1, 2 and 3 up). I’m impressed. Not only is the show well written and the jokes really well-timed, but the voice actors […]

We know Mega Shark, he battled Giant Octopus in a horrible B-movie where at one point Mega Shark lept from the ocean into the sky and ate an airplane. That happens from time to time. What you don’t know is that Roger Corman, the king of shit B-movies (I’m not kidding with “king”, he’s produced […]
The graphic above is a chart showing the different experience between a person who pirated a movie and a person who purchased it. It’s one of the best visualizations I’ve seen of why people pirate movies in a long time. Beyond that, I would add that accessibility of the media is the most-common reason for piracy. […]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare the entire NBC/Conan/Leno fight a hoax engineered to save The Tonight Show and build a new fan-base that is loyal. What Has Happened? Deadline Hollywood has an excellent real-time writeup of what is happening with the fight yesterday through today and it was reading […]
