The 5 Greatest Norm Macdonald Moments

Norm Macdonald has passed away. The beloved and undeniably distinctive comedian was 61 years old and recently lost his quiet battle to cancer. The fact that the man, known for his dry sense of humor and fearless approach to comedy, opted not to disclose his battle with cancer is very much in character. Macdonald once said this of battles with cancer:A draw for him, a loss for the rest of us here on Earth. There are few people I have ever found to be funnier than Macdonald. That dry delivery. The...

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas opens and more entertainment makes its way back

There’s a lot to take in at the recently opened Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, not only with the gaming floor, restaurants and hotel, but also a unique assortment of costumed characters, musicians and painters ready to put on a show for visitors. The scene at the resort casino property, located at the former Hard Rock Hotel & Casino off the Strip, is what might happen if Burning Man met the New York City subway and all of its performers, according to Richard “Boz” Bosworth. It’s a sample of the resort...

When will entertainment return to casinos in Southern California and Las Vegas?

After nearly a year of canceled live events due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s hard not to crave the normalcy of singing along with a well-known artist during a concert, laughing at a comedian’s jokes or catching a theatrical production. Casinos have long been places to take in those those forms of entertainment and as coronavirus cases decline and vaccinations increase, entertainment will likely resume in those spaces (and in some places it already has). But how soon large-scale events retur...

From smoke-free gaming floors to new casinos, here’s what’s happening in Las Vegas

‘Jingle All the Way 2’ is as Good and Bad as the Original, Just in Different Ways

The Pro-Approved Guide To Fixing A New Hair Color You Hate

Trusting someone with your hair color requires a leap of faith and even a bit of hope — which, every so often, is dashed by a botched color job. Maybe you requested ashy blonde, but ended up with a brassy yellow that just looks off. Or perhaps you envisioned a medium-brown hue with a touch of caramel, but left the salon with anything but warm chocolate. Asked for natural-looking highlights and got skunk-inspired streaks instead?Although all colorists ultimately want happy, satisfied clients, th...

‘Candyman: Day of the Dead’ Fails to Understand Candyman

In this edition, we see what all the buzz is about with this Candyman guy who just might be on the cusp of a high-profile remake.) One of the big movie news items this week – more of a rumor actually – was the report that Oscar winner Jordan Peele may be remaking Candyman. It’s unclear if he’s just producing or if he’ll write and/or direct the film too, and it’s e...

A Want To Win For The Capitals, A Must Win For The Golden Knights

from Luke Fox and Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, Stanley will be in the building. And probably, like, Carrot Top too. Leading the Cup Final 3-1, the Washington Capitals — now underdogs on the betting line only — have a chance to end the Vegas Golden Knights’ incredible story and 44 years of franchise disappointment. “It’s an interesting dynamic in the final,” considers Tom Wilson. “Essentially it’s the hardest hockey you’re going to endure, but at the same time it’s the easiest ...

Don't Judge

Unless it stars Gregory Peck, proceed with caution.5 books we would LOVE to see made into terrible film adaptations: Oranges by John McPhee: It's literally just a book about oranges, so Carrot Top is an obvious choice for the main role.

Leonardo Dicaprio will fund it by auctioning off a ride in his private jet to three locations starting with the letters A, R, and E. Goodnight Moon: I'm actually not sure why this ha...

Hockey & Las Vegas Is a Winning Combination

As one of the announced 18,191 on-hand for Tuesday’s historic night at T-Mobile Arena, I had the chance to experience for myself what many had been looking forward to for more than a year – the debut of NHL hockey in Las Vegas, Nevada. In a city that is still recovering from the tragic events of October 1, the Vegas Golden Knights managed to put on a show for their fans as they defeated the visiting Arizona Coyotes 5-2 on what was a very emotional evening at T-Mobile Arena.

5 things to know for Friday, including Portland's efforts to help small businesses find a place to work

Woman's Twitter Review Of Vagina Slapping Sex Toy Is A Comedic Climax!

Yes, this is a real sex toy. It's called the Sqweel, and it's a motorized wheel of fake tongues intended to simulate cunnilingus -- in fact, it bills itself as the "world's best selling oral sex toy." Related: Janelle Monáe Thinks Women Should Hold A Sex Strike!

Twitter rolls out Snapchat-like QR codes for some users

Today, Twitter released a new feature that makes adding friends easier than ever — QR codes. QR codes were all the rage once. It was a simpler time, those days. While it’s no longer the game-changer we once thought it’d be, these scannable codes still have utility. Snapchat, for example, used them to add other users without having to search. A simple scan and you were now following Carrot Top, or you know, someone else. Starting today, Twitter has QR codes that work the same way Snapchat’s do. W...

I'm a world famous legal blogger. Almost no one cares.

A couple months back, I was giving a talk in a far off land  (Canada) and the moderator introduced me as "the most internet famous person [he'd] ever met." This was genteel nonsense, all the more endearing because it was absurd on its face. He was doing obvious violence to the concept of fame. Googling "D-List Celebrity" returns an image of the prop comic Carrot Top, who has 63.4K followers on Twitter. As you can see from the panel to the right, my follower count establishes me 4% as Twitter fam...

Like its three predecessors, the film had plenty of off-the-wall moments that had no logical reason whatsoever -- but this go-round really kicked up the craziness to a whole new level!

HBO’s ‘Vinyl’ Canceled: Popdose Roundtable

After saying that it was coming back for a second season, HBO changed their minds and canceled “Vinyl,” the series about a struggling fictional record label in the early ‘70s. Despite being produced by Martin Scorcese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, and a strong cast that included Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano, its attempt to show the music industry in all its coked-out glory was widely panned. So we decided to discuss this among our staff, and we began with the following questio...

Carrot Top May Be One Of The Most Hated Comics, But He’s Also Pretty Damn Rich

Carrot Top (aka Scott Thompson) is a perpetual pop-culture target. Whether it's because of his unique look or brand of prop comedy, he takes a lot of crap. But did you know he's also one of the wealthiest comics alive? The Las Vegas mainstay is worth more than $75 million, selling out five to six shows a week for the last 10 years. Writer and producer Jessica Pilot profiled the comedian for Vice Canada, because clearly he's doing something right. VICE CANADA: CARROT TOP from Jessica Pilot on Vim...

Confession: I Wear Glasses To Look Cooler

This article was originally published on April 25, 2014.As I write this, there’s something in my way. It’s distracting me and keeping me from totally focusing on my writing, slowing me down, and obstructing my view. It's my glasses. I wear them not because they help me see better, because that would make far too much sense. No, I’m wearing them because I think they look cool. To make things worse, there's no one in the room right now. I’m completely alone, sitting, writing, and wearing glasses I...
