Conchords take final (HBO) flight tonight, but is it really the end?

Tonight’s episode of Flight of the Conchords – Evicted – marks the end of the second season of this hysterical HBO comedy series.

Happy March equinox, everybody!

Today, March 20, is the day in which the Earth enjoys equal parts day and night – aka the semiannual equinox.

Will Ferrell is tenawesome in You’re Welcome, America: A Final Night with George W. Bush

Last night’s HBO premier of Will Ferrell’s one-man Broadway show – You’re Welcome, America: A Final Night with George W. Bush – was hilarious, as expected.

The 90 minute play/skit hybrid covers W’s rise to the presidency along with his two terms in office. Although the show is certainly not for everyone (many people have …




LaCie gets literal, makes actual USB key drive

LaCie, known for its somewhat unusual digital storage designs, has released one of the most practical products I’ve seen in quite a long time – a USB flash drive in the shape of a key.

I mean, if you’re gonna tote a flash drive around on your key chain anyways, why not make it a bit …
