Season four of No Activity, the first fully animated season, will find Special Agent Nick Cullen (Brammall) finally realizing his dream of joining the FBI — but his excitement won’t last for long, as he quickly discovers this job is not at all what he expected it to be. A seemingly dull observation detail takes a turn and becomes the potential beginnings of a career-defining case when he learns of an emerging cult, and when a massive operation takes aim at this cult, it’s unclear which side will break first. …

Hello, folks! We’re not even halfway through the first month of 2021 and already some pretty crazy, important shit has gone down. Oh, did you think I meant the fact that Donald Trump was just impeached, a second time, for inciting a violent insurrection on the US Capitol last week?

NAH.

I’m referring to something of equal importance to the country, which is that I just learned today that a church in Brazil showcased a bunch of amateur wax figures in 2015 and they are fucking terrifying. Although the exhibit itself was from six years ago, video footage of the exhibit has gained a lot of attention online over the past few days because, I will say again, these statues are FUCKING. TERRIFYING. The artist responsible for creating these horrific figures and cursing them with their own existence is Brazilian sculptor Arlindo Armacollo. …

Article by Kat Curtis

I love TikTok because it takes away power from straight white dudes.

TikTok has given so many weird, funny, and underrepresented creators the opportunity to get their stuff SEEN and grow an audience. Apps like TikTok make it so YOU can see the content you actually want to see, versus television and movies, where (mostly) heterosexual Caucasian men control what narratives get produced, which actors get cast, and the level of inclusiveness/diversity the film will have (both with casting and production).

Anywho — here are the creators that I came across this week that are creating some really dope comedy AND are trailblazing a more inclusive future: Jay & Sharon, Isaiah Washington, and Sarah Maddack. …

The thing about living in lockdown for a year(ish) is somehow having both too much and not enough time. For example, running errands like going to the grocery store or the bank take a whole lot longer than they used to. On the flip side, working from home (and generally just not going anywhere ever) means my 30-minute commute from my apartment to my office has turned into a 3-minute commute from my bed to my table.

(This also means that the 20 minutes I used to spend getting ready each morning has turned into 20 minutes of nothing because who the hell is still putting on actual pants and shirts with, like, buttons, am I right? Am I right? …

We all need a laugh to end this godforsaken year

Well, here we are, the end of December, another year has come and gone. There were highs, there were lows, and lows, and lows, and there were even more lows. I don’t know where you’re from or what exactly your year entailed, but what I do know, and what we can all agree on as absolute fact, is 2020 sucked. Like, it fucking suuuuuuucked, dude. Remember when we all thought 2016 was the worst year? HA! If only, am I right?

Fortunately, this year was also peppered with some truly wonderful comedy. Whether providing commentary and criticism on the slew of political failings, satirical looks at life in quarantine, or blissful moments of escape from anything to do with the pandemic, comedians and creators in the digital sphere have played a huge role in keeping our spirits up and keeping us sane by keeping us laughing. …

A note from Brie Summers, host of How To Be A Jerk:

“Being a jerk can seem to work so well for so many others, but it can also be challenging and seem out of reach. For me, it wasn’t always easy. I used to have a sense of human compassion that got in the way of my greatest jerk potential, but by simply forming the habits of a jerk, — I became one. …
