How many movies can one man watch in one month?
Who hasn't had the fantasy: "I'm going to stay home and watch movies all day. I'm going to catch up on the classics, see all those movies that I never had time to see, hell... I'll maybe I'll even watch a couple of those romantic comedies that my wife is always trying to make me enjoy... just because I CAN. I have Netflix streaming and I have access to a million movies 24 hours a day. WHY CAN'T I JUST STAY HOME AND WATCH MOVIES?"
Verbatim, right? Now you're all, "Get out of my head, My Damn Channel!"
Too late. We're just gonna dig in deeper because Mark Malkoff lived out your Netflix streaming movie watching fantasy and filmed it for us.
For "Netflix Challenge," Mark wanted to see exactly how many movies he could watch for $7.99 per month. Turns out, it's 252.
Before you say, "252? Well that sounds easy as sh*t
," think about this: Mark gained 6 pounds by barely moving all month. When he did move, he still had to watch movies on his iPhone and iPad. He started doing bad Jack Nicholson impressions.
Of course, the good parts of this whole thing are that both Andrew McCarthy and Jason London decided to provide him with live commentary of the movies St. Elmo's Fire
and Dazed and Confused
Make sure you watch the video
to see how Mark took movie suggestions from people on Twitter, Facebook -- even Mashable commenters. Watch it to see Andrew McCarthy cart Mark around in a red wagon. And watch it to see how Mark got through all of these movies (yes, he even devoted an entire day to Razzie winners):

I started my career in radio and I started My Damn Channel as a response to getting tossed out of radio in 2006.
Podcasts are not new, but in the past few years, a number of brilliantly talented people with brains and balls decided to head to their garages and go punk - bringing new shows to the masses on the Internet - without any of the soul-killing, corporate execs able to stop these brave rebels from creating completely original "radio" that puts the "F" back in Freedom.
I created Free FM back in 2004 to give awesome talent like Adam Carolla a radio show that harkened back to the earliest days of freeform radio....a form never done better than the way it's still being done today by Howard Stern.
When I got "shit-canned" as Adam loves to say - and could no longer protect him from the devils - he got "shit-canned" too. Adam took to his garage to build a monster audience for his podcast and My Damn Channel continues to put our cash where our heart is as a paid sponsor.
Today, we pony up again to become a proud sponsor of WTF with Marc Maron
. If you know this show, then you simply need to know that I could no longer sit back and cheer for Marc without jumping in to support him. If you're uninitiated, then his words will be better than mine and I encourage you to watch the video of Marc's recent keynote speech given at the premiere comedy festival, Just for Laughs
Like with Adam Carolla, you'll hear My Damn Channel artists and comedians on WTF with Marc Maron. From time to time, Marc will tell you about the good shit we're doing here to premiere original series with great talent and without any of the corporate red tape that used to get in our way.
And we've now got a whole new Marc Maron channel to check out regularly when you're on My Damn Channel, featuring his podcasts, videos, extras and excerpts with a link to subscribe and donate like we did to a rare talent taking the truth by the horns.

If you woke up this morning with an extra spring in your step and a little bit of a glow about you, fear not. It's not a brain tumor (probably)—you're just basking in the glorious psychic afterglow of the Royal Wedding! I mean, like, OMG, right?
Yes, there's nothing more romantic than a photogenic young commoner being hand-selected by the Illuminati and served up on a silver platter for review and approval by the future king's cadre of clucking, hunchbacked toadies as they strum lutes and swill peasants' blood from pewter goblets. At least that's how I presume it works. I don't know. I'm an American.
But regardless, My Damn Channel is using this opportunity to "say yes to the dress" and provide you with one each of the following:
The first ever episode of 'You Suck at Photoshop.'
The latest trailer for the new series 'Versailles,' starring Patricia Heaton.
Not ours, but still hilarious: a break dancer kicks a baby in the face.
And something blue...
Andy Milonakis's 'Red Blue.' That works, I guess.
So say "I do" to these videos or forever hold your peace. Also, don't forget to send the happy young couple something nice. I'm pretty sure they're registered at Pottery Barn.

on 2/4/2011 11:28:32 AM by Matt Warren
For the serious sports fan, this weekend is arguably the biggest weekend of the year. The Super Bowl is perhaps our biggest unofficial holiday, providing slobs and stats nerds of every race, religion, and economic background an opportunity to F up some seven-layer dip and blow their paycheck on ridiculous prop bets. But not everyone's into football. And that's fine, because for these people a whole cottage-industry of nonathletic "Bowls" have sprung up to service almost every niche and fetish. There's the Bud Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, the Lingerie Bowl. But why stop there? Here are our ideas for some additions to the pantheon of esoteric specialty bowls...
The Condiment Bowl
Watch as Catsup and Ketchup go head to head to determine, once and for all time, which spelling is correct. Don't be alarmed if, at the end of the grudge match, the field is smeared in gooey red liquid from goal post to goal post. That's just, you know, delicious ketchup. Go ahead. Dip your curly fries in there.
The Soup Art Bowl
Okay, this one's a bit of a stretch, but what about a knock down drag out fight between Andy Warhol's iconic Campbells soup can paintings? Maybe like, I don't know, hot dog bean vs. New England Clam Chowder? Yeah, that works.
The Sharktocopter Bowl
Just because. Who cares if it's Photoshopped? This picture is rad.
Rob Barnett (My Damn Channel Founder/CEO); Illeana Douglas
The My Damn Channel family of artists took home 4 Streamy Awards Sunday night:
- Illeana Douglas won 2 Streamy Awards for EASY TO ASSEMBLE. Best Ensemble Cast and Best Product Integration for IKEA.
- Jason and Randy Sklar won a Streamy Award for Best Branded Entertainment Web Series for BACK ON TOPPS sponsored by Dick's Sporting Goods.
- David Wain won a Streamy Award for Best Writing for a Comedy Web Series for WAINY DAYS.
HUGE THANKS to every artist, active fan, and advertiser for saying YES to "the good shit."
Here's the new news:
A 3rd Season of IKEA's EASY TO ASSEMBLE will debut this year on My Damn Channel. Illeana and IKEA will deliver the details in the coming days. This is a tremendous sign of support for everyone who co-creates Branded Entertainment.
David Wain told Grace on the red carpet that more WAINY DAYS is on its way to My Damn Channel. Cameras will roll on episode 32 next weekend!

On Valentine's Day, a bunch of folks from the My Damn Channel family went on a special date with our favorite gal pals, GraceNMichelle.
Pictured above left: (L-R) Kevin Flynn ("Puca"), Joshua Nicholson ("MRJOTZ"), Anthony Willingham ("Calvin Bentington"), KT Pierce ("Harvey Potato"/"ktgilead"), and James Dunne ("smokybanjo").
All other pictures: Grace Helbig (from My Damn Channel's Daily Grace) and Michelle Vargas nerding it up at The People's Imrpov Theater during their Valentine's Day comedy sketch show: 2 Girls 1 CUPid.
Not pictured, our twitter/facebook lady, Armeni Kamciyan, also came down to watch the girls shake their booties and put on a performance to steal (and eventually melt) all of our evil/cold hearts.
Just in case you missed the news, Puca and Smokybanjo flew all the way from Ireland to meet everyone and they had no idea what they were in for at Sunday night's show.
They sat in their seats, innocently watching while the girls paraded
around on stage drooling over their fictitious love interests, "Ross
and Ryan" - who, consequently, ended up being the lucky Puca &
Smokybanjo. They didn't even have to worry about memorizing any lines
to play the part - they were handed tiny pieces of paper (shaped like
little red hearts). It went something like this:
Grace: Do you love us?
Ross & Ryan: No.
Michelle: Why don't you love us?
Ross & Ryan: Because we love each other!
(The crowd roars with laughter)
That was a tough one to make the boys say out loud...
Keep up with GraceNMichelle, and maybe you'll bump into one of us at their next show...
