Daily Grace knows LOTS about football* and she spent all week telling you how to have some fun on Super Bowl Sunday.
1. Learn about Tom Brady and Eli Manning.
For example, only one of these quarterbacks is Team Edward.*
2. Learn all you can about football.
Just, you know, in general.
3. Learn what to eat at a Super Bowl party!
At least, we think it's edible.
4. Learn a Super Bowl cheer!
Be a cheerleader. And be aggressive. "B.E. AGGRESSIVE."
Hope these Super Bowl tips help! Good luck to [insert name of team of your choice here]!
*These things may not be true.

The New Year just started, but the latest season of Wainy Days
is almost over! Next Monday, January 9, 2012, is the Season Finale!
I know, right?!
Here's a quick recap to get you all caught up:
- *David went on a date with Kelly (Erinn Hayes)-- a theater critic for the New York Times(!), but she had a thing for David's next-door neighbor, a TV star named "Chez," played by Ken Marino
- *David met Arielle (Lizzy Caplan), who was reading a book called "Rosewood Junction" that David pretended to know all about.
- *At the suggestion of a co-worker at the sweatshop (Jorma Taccone), David tries to find "Rosewood Junction" as a book-on-tape so he'll know all about it before his date with Arielle! The nice old lady who runs the bookstore has an interesting relationship with her landlord (Steven Weber)
- *David got his book-on-tape, but he needs Zandy's Walkman to listen to it, and she left her Walkman (seriously?!) at her ex-boyfriend's (Thomas Lennon), who happens to be a BIG Derek Jeter fan...
- *David goes on his date with Arielle, but she wants to talk about more than just "Rosewood Junction!" Go figure.
Which brings us to this week's episode
, in which everyone meets again... at a dramatic reading of TV dialogue by Ken Marino.
You're caught up now. Don't say you don't know what's going on because it would be a lie. Next thing you know you'll be saying that you know what "Rosewood Junction" is about:
Nice try, guys. Nice try.

Today is a new day in the world of My Damn Channel because we officially launch the My Damn Channel Blog Network with Slacktory (http://slacktory.com)
Slacktory is helmed by one of our favorite internet users, Nick Douglas
, former editor of Valleywag
, where he helped us navigate the vast internet with humor and wit. We were so impressed by him, naturally we
followed Nick on Twitter and Tumblr and when he mentioned briefly that he was looking for a new challenge, we pounced. Social Media: it works!
Now Nick and his merry band of writers are all part of the Damn Family. We always wanted more brothers and sisters, but Mom said "over her dead body," so this is, like, the best
kind of compromise. We get some new playmates and Mom's still alive.
Make sure you visit Slacktory.com
daily to find out what shenanigans that crazy internet has gotten itself into this time! Today, we have stories about Jessi Slaughter, a Harry Potter/Book of Mormon parody, a visit to Jack In The Box with Tom Waits and a weekly column from Mark Zuckerberg that Mark Zuckerberg has nothing to do with at all.
But, don't worry! We haven't forgotten our online video roots! Slacktory will curate, remix and mashup videos at MyDamnChannel.com/Slacktory
. Our first Slacktory video
has cats, babies and Hitler explaining "Planking," so, you know, there's something for everyone!
Slacktory is just the beginning. We're coming for you, Internet. Please continue to do ridiculous things so we always have something to talk about.

The globes on this guy! How convenient that there's an awards show called the Golden Globes that he can host every year. That's right, every year.

Tom Waits. Lesser world without him.
Click on his head and enjoy a music video you'd never see on the MTV. In the last century, we were shooting the pilot for ROTTEN TV. One of the early ideas was to get Johnny Rotten to 'review' music videos for his new teleee-vision show. We debated war strategies late one night and stumbled onto the idea that everyone would expect John to HATE every video. Too simple. John decided it was a good idea to actually LIKE at least ONE music video. Tom Waits was the winner.
Lauren Galanter here, Content & Video Manager for My Damn Channel. Today I'm guest blogging something important which I just found out about.
Before joining the My Damn Channel family, I was an editor for Alive in Baghdad. Brian Conley, the creator, has been detained in Beijing. From the statement of Students for a Free Tibet, the group Conley was working with:
"Beijing - Brian Conley, creator of the well-known videoblog, Alive in
Baghdad, was detained with his friend, Jeffrey Rae, early Tuesday,
August 19th in Beijing. Their detention appears to have taken place at
the same time as that of international artist James Powderly, whose
detention was reported Tuesday. Three other bloggers and activists,
Jeff Goldin, Michael Liss, and Tom Grant, have also been missing since
Tuesday morning. Conley, 28, Rae, 28, Goldin, 40, Liss, 35, Grant, 39
are all American citizens."
Our content is different here, but we share the same goal of breaking new ground in online video. Spread the word to help a fellow video pioneer!
The article on Boing Boing
The article on SFT, to be updated with ways to help.
UPDATE: Conley and others given 10 day sentence
