Put on your detective hat (and a warm coat), there’s a very, very cold case to solve.

In Ontario, Canada during the winter of 1934, Harold Heaven disappeared from his cabin. Local police searched the woods and dredged the lake but Harold was never found, and with no more leads to follow the case was unceremoniously closed as a likely suicide. Now, 85 years later, Harold’s great-great-nephew Mike attempts to solve this coldest of cold cases, with the help of his extended family and his true-crime-obsessed best friend, Jackson.

Created by Executive Producers and co-stars Mike Mildon and Jackson Rowe (“Trophy Husbands”), For Heaven’s Sake is the perfect blend of comedy and true crime documentary you won’t…

Season four of No Activity, the first fully animated season, arrives on Paramount+ April 8.

This 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. …


Gentrification sucks, but this tune by The Cooties does not

Remember when eating fast food used to be fun?

Over the past few decades, fast food and superstores have become a fairly universal (and often nostalgic) part of people’s hometown experiences. There was probably a 24-hour franchised diner that you and your friends would hang out at on Friday nights, and there was always one or two corporate stores with huge parking lots that were used for a multitude of activities (watching the 4th of July fireworks, making out with your significant other, smoking pot, etc)

But the magic of these big-box stores and Ken-Taco-Huts faded when we started to see these same franchises in every city, every town…


Okay ouch

Across this wide world one thing that brings people together is sport. Soccer, football, basketball, wrestling, there’s no shortage of sports and games that are globally enjoyed. And then… there are the lesser known ones. Things like Irish and Gaelic hurling (which is WILD if you’ve never seen it), Kabaddi, hell even wife-carrying is a sport.

But honestly those hardly hold a candle to the insanity that is Russian competitive slapping.

Yeah, this is a real thing. And it’s way intense.

Millennials are notoriously good at ruining things, but Gen Y creators like Rod are helping TikTok connect to an even bigger audience AND further validate the Gen Z experience

Article by Kat Curtis

Millennials have ruined the housing market, department stores, chain restaurants, and many other industries, and now, they’ve joined TikTok — but surprisingly, they haven’t ruined it. In fact, they’ve actually made it… better?

This is AWESOME because I have (finally) been able to send my co-workers TikToks that they actually relate to. Not only has this content gotten my older more mature friends and colleagues to download the app, but they’re starting to ACTUALLY send TikToks back to me. I FINALLY DON’T FEEL SO ALONE WITH MY LOVE FOR THE APP!! AHHH THE VINDICATION!!

Rod is one of my current favorite go-to Millennial accounts because watching his TikToks will give you an instant serotonin boost: he showcases the nuances of the Millennial experience in an honest yet funny way…


I think we can all sympathize

The saying goes “work smarter, not harder,” but what if instead of working smarter, you worked really, really hard creating a lie so elaborate it eventually involves the cops to avoid working at all? It doesn’t sound like the best plan, because it’s not, but it does make for a good story.

Police in Coolidge, Arizona found 19-year-old Brandon Soules next to a water tower, bound and gagged. He told the police that he had been abducted from his home by two masked men, then knocked unconscious by his kidnappers and driven around the town before being dumped by a…

Comedy, like all art, is subjective. What tickles the ol’ funny bone for you may be crickets for somebody else, and that’s fine! There are a few things, however, that damn near everybody is guaranteed to at least chuckle at.

For example, everyone loves a good word fumble.

You know, things like when you go to say “good” and “great” at the same time and end up saying “grood”. Or when third graders try to write out how proficient their parents are in the kitchen and “cook” becomes “cock”. …
