    Jimmy and Mario Cook For You!

    When I think of Jimmy Kimmel the word "swell" comes to mind.  As in, "That Jimmy Kimmel sure seems like a swell guy!"  And this video proves it.  See what happens is, Jimmy and the world-renowned chef and international sex symbol Mario Batali decide to find a stranger on the street and then go to their house and cook a meal with whatever is in that person's fridge.  This does indeed happen, and a lovely afternoon then unfolds before your very eyes.


    I know cooking shows are so en vogue right now, but still, in spite of it all, I can't get enough of watching great chefs - great artists, really - put together dazzling dishes on camera.  There's a reason these shows are popular.  If I had the tenacity and the courage - if I had the stones! - I might try and become a cook, or open my own restaurant.  But I know how much hard work is involved, and I don't think I truly have the passion to get down and dirty, as it were.  Still, it would be fun.  Maybe one day after I make my billions in crude oil futures I'll open a nice little restaurant in the south of France with my loving Spanish wife, who I met while paragliding in the foothills of the Himalayas, high on peyote and white wine.


    So dig into the video and then maybe cook something for someone - maybe someone you love!  Live, love, and eat, baby!  Live, love, and eat.

    Reggie Watts & His Horse


    Here is an excellent performance by Reggie Watts.  He's singing about a horse on Conan.  Really showing off his pipes on this one.  Sometimes it's tough to tell what his voice really sounds like with all of the sound manipulation he puts on it, but nothing is in doubt here: beautiful.  Just beautiful.  Tender.  Emotive.  Sexual.  Sexual?  Eh, not sexual.

    But the best part of this video is that Billy Gibbons is playing guitar!  Billy Gibbons!  Legendary guitarist and lead singer of ZZ Top.  I love that man and band.  And if you don't know anything about ZZ Top listen to Billy on WTF with Marc Marcon.  A great interview - do it up!

    Ten Great Things About Thanksgiving

    Well, it’s almost here. Thanksgiving is really, really soon, you guys. To celebrate, I made a list of the best things about Thanksgiving. I’d like to share it with you now.


    10. Folksy holiday travel pieces on NPR. On the one hand, it’s like, we get it, traffic is crazy, but they’re kind of cozy and comfortable in that they happen every year and they’re sort of universally relatable.


    9. Martellini’s Sparkling Apple Cider. I’m technically allowed to drink alcohol now, but why would I ever want to drink anything but cider?


    8. Referring to pumpkin pie as “punkin’ pie” to be funny, but also old-timey and cute.


    7. Remembering all your family’s wacky Thanksgiving stories, like the time my weird cousins and their parents got in a massive, knock-down-drag-out fight over whether Disney’s Brother Bear was a good movie.


    6. Stuffing. ‘Nuff said.


    5. Christmas music on the radio, because even if you’ve already been wearing out your holiday playlist for a month on Spotify, who cares, it’s officially Christmas music season!!!


    4. Watching the Macy’s Parade while eating some sort of yummy breakfast food your mom made (cinnamon rolls!) and getting a head start on that sweet, sweet sparkling cider consumption.


    3. The Charlie Brown balloon. He’ll never kick that football, will he?


    2. Spending the day with your family and/or chosen family, if you’re lucky enough to do so.


    1.     Third Leftovers, which is where you just fill a bowl with mashed potatoes, put a spoonful of everything else on top, and smash it all in your mouth at once while watching Miracle on 34th Street/It’s a Wonderful Life/Elf.


    Happy T. Gives, everybody!

    Be An Angel Today!

    Are you aware that today's (fake) national holiday is Be An Angel Day? Well, it is! So be an angel (like Henry and Mike), and treat people with the respect and compassion they need.

    For example:

    How's life guys? Pretty lame, huh? You know what? It's never going to get any better. It's always going to be a roller coaster of good AND bad times, so deal with it. You know what you can do to make it better for yourself and everyone around you? BE AN ANGEL!!! 

    Life Tip from Chris Donahue: Be An Angel Every Day!

    TVGASM TUESDAY

    It's another TVgasm Tuesday, and if you somehow don't know, the SAG awards happened. Check out the red carpet highlights here, and definitely make sure you watch the best acceptance speech of the night by (shocker) Tina Fey. I laughed. I cried. It was only a minute long, but it was an emotional roller coaster. 30 Rock airs its series finale this Thursday, so this was just a little taste of wha'ts to come. Don't be surprised if I'm an emotional wreck next Tuesday. It was formally announced that J.J. Abrams will be directing the new Star Wars movie, and the internet is PISSED. The "Jar Jar Abrams" jokes have already started, and I think it's safe to say that we're in for some pretty lewd gifs in the weeks to come. In unsurprising news, Frank Ocean wants to bring charges against Chris Brown after the "alleged" incident, officially making Chris Brown a [REDACTED] in the eyes of the public. Let's see what TVgasm has for us


    This Week:


    If you liked Tina Fey's Bossypants, get excited, because Amy Poehler has reportedly signed a book contract, herself. Now, I don't want to hyperbolize how excited I am, but I will be using this book as my new Bible when it's finally published. Click to read all the deets at TVgasm!


    Well, if writing TVgasm has taught me anything, it's that for every piece of great work that is set to be created, there is an equally terrible thing that has been greenlit. It's Newton's third law of whatever or something. So when I heard about this terrible new talk show, I can't say I was surprised just deeply deeply disappointed. 


    Have you been watching Top Chef? If you HAVE been watching, you probably know that there are a few people who could use some well-intentioned advice, or even some advice that is NOT well-intentioned. TVgasm is here to offer some (possibly not so) well-intentioned advice.


    Remember: There's no shame in weeping openly at your own television.

    Introducing TVGasm Tuesdays

    Do you love reality TV as much as I do? Probably not, but if your obsession is anywhere close to my own, our friends at TVgasm have you covered. As the new summer lineup of reality shows premieres, TVgasm is here for you to ensure you don't miss anything... and we at My Damn Channel are going to double down on that by ensuring you don't miss anything from TVgasm!

    This week:

    They checked in with a few of your (and my) favorite celebrity chefs to talk about their summer reality series. And it gets SPICY. (Pun INTENDED.)

    If you're more of a Real Housewives kind of person (and let's face it: who isn't?) check out TVgasm's ReDub videos of the RHOC for a more accurate reading of what the housewives are actually saying. (HINT: Not very much.)

    Last-- and BEST-- TVgasm has the scoop on everyone's favorite Toddlers and Tiaras contestant Alana, better known as Honey Boo Boo Child. She has her own spinoff this summer! I won't give away the name, but it is by far my favorite part of the whole concept.

    Remember: please watch reality television safely. Remember to bathe, eat and above all, yell at the tiny people inside your TV.

    Working For The Weekend

    What a week, what a week, indeed.

    1. Earl Sweatshirt (pictured, left) is free following a stint at a Samoan boys' school, and has dropped this new track, "Chum," which shows that not only has he still "got it," but he has only gotten better.

    2. Ted Danson was being awesome and spreading (hopefully true) rumors about a Bored to Death TV Movie.

    3. Mythbusters is going to mythbust (that's a legit verb, now, right?) Breaking Bad, which is kind of neat, even though I think mythbusting is kind of boring.

    4. If you guys like Boy Meets World, then you'll probably love Girl Meets World?!?! What?

    5. Oh right, and I don't know if you saw this or not but during Hurricane Sandy I made this video about my Top Ten Candy Picks!

    Earl is Free. All is right with the world. Tweet at me internet @MrChrisDonahue
