Coming Distractions: Things get bumpy in the trailer for Netflix’s bull-riding documentary Fearless

The majority of The A.V. Club’s readership likely knows about as much about the world of bull riding as most bull-riding fans probably know about Sean Tillmann’s tongue-in-cheek porn-star-inspired alter ego Har Mar Superstar. But while there’s not yet a Netflix documentary series for people hoping to learn all about the indie musician, there soon will be one for those who want a glimpse into the world of large horned mammal wrangling.

The six-part documentary series from Chef’s Table showrunner Andrew Fried takes a long, hard look at the American and Brazilian dudes who are crazy/brave enough to climb up onto a 1,500-pound bucking bull in front of a cheering crowd of spectators who are secretly hoping to see them trampled under hoof.

Fearless comes charging onto Netflix, nostrils flared, on August 19.

Must-Watch Music Videos: Our Top 10 Of 2013

It’s been a great year for music videos. Seriously. YouTube has spawned and seen a kind of renaissance of high quality moving pictures set to music coming from both independent artists and the majors alike. Below are some of my favorite music videos I’ve featured this year from some of my favorite artists listed in no particular order. What I love about the videos is they're all drastically different. There's everything from a “Choose Your Own Adventure” style clip to a long-form, instrumental short film, and each highlights the freedom and creativity that's still ever-present in independent music. These artists are at the forefront of their respective genre’s and their videos are a testament to what we can look forward to in the coming year. I had meant to pick only five videos to feature on this list, but looking back, it was way too hard to pare down.

Macaulay Culkin Parties in Tijuana—See the Pic!

Macaulay Culkin Parties in Tijuana—See the Pic!
Macaulay Culkin was neither home nor alone. In fact, he joined several others at the Moustache Bar in Tijuana, Mexico, on Monday, Oct. 21. Decked out in all-black and sporting long hair, the 33-year-old actor could be seen sitting on a flight of stairs while taking in a performance by his friend, Har Mar Superstar. Though he's looked gaunt and disheveled in recent years, Culkin reportedly seemed healthy and happy. (In August 2012, his rep denied that the former child star had developed a drug problem, telling E! News that such reports were "not only categorically without merit" but also "impossibly and ridiculously fictitious.") The sighting of the star comes a little more than...

Macaulay Culkin -- Come to My Tj Donkey Show

  • TMZ
Macaulay Culkin took part in a donkey show in Mexico this weekend ... but it was bestiality-free. Mac and R&B singer Har Mar Superstar were in Tijuana for a concert.  They posted this pic just before going on stage, teasing the surprise guest who was riding a zonkey. For those unfamiliar -- zonkeys are donkeys painted to look like zebras ... a long-standing Tj thing. The concert was a hit, though judging from the photos a little on the weird side.

Must-Watch Music Videos: Har Mar Superstar Channels Motown To Perfection

“Lady, You Shot Me,” are the ubiquitous final words uttered by the great Sam Cooke as he fell down, murdered by the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles in 1964. They're powerful and striking as far as last words go, and they're now re-appropriated by the only music “revivalist” worth a damn, Har Mar Superstar (or, as his friends call him, Sean Tillman.) The single pays homage to the greats that created the music Har Mar Superstar now re-creates with precision and style. It's also the first single and video from his new record Bye Bye 17 out on Cult Records (the label started by Strokes front man Julian Casablancas). Channeling the charisma and stage presence of the great James Brown and the pleading earnestness of Cooke, Tillman struts around the stage belting and wailing to precise effect. Washed in red light with sexy, Motown-esque girl band backup singers, the

Watch an A Cappella Brawl Cut From Pitch Perfect

  • Vulture
Watch an A Cappella Brawl Cut From Pitch Perfect
More often than not, it is pretty easy to figure out why a deleted scene released on a DVD was left on the cutting room floor. But not so with this exclusive clip from the Pitch Perfect Blu-ray/DVD set (out Dec. 18), thanks to the hilarious mention of banana farts, finger blades, and a little light racism. Not intrigued yet? What if we told you there’s also a tawdry peek at Har Mar Superstar’s more-than-ample abs and a few seconds of the awesome Rebel Wilson to fill you with glee?Pitch Perfect is not just about a capella. It's about the warring factions within a capella — and not just between groups from the same college. No, the animosity extends well into the alumni circuit. In this cut scene, the all-male Treblemakers face off against the middle-aged Tonehangers. It doesn’t take long before the trash talk gets physical

'Pitch Perfect' Review: The Pros And Cons Of The A Capella Comedy

There's nothing better than when a movie surprises you, and "Pitch Perfect," the giddy-good new competitive a cappella movie, is one of the year's biggest and best surprises. It might not seem like it, but "Pitch Perfect," with its nifty "Bring It On"-meets-"Glee" set-up, could be a sleeper hit for Universal. We will now run down the pitchy highs and baritone lows of "Pitch Perfect," which hits theaters next Friday, October 5. Pro: The movie's general "attitude" Our central character (played winningly by Anna Kendrick, from "Twilight" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World") is a moody aspiring deejay with a cutting wit, and the movie has a prickly edge that nicely compliments its squeaky-clean subject matter. Its roots are in John Hughes coming-of-age comedies and the aforementioned "Bring It On," but it errs on the side of borderline abrasiveness every time, and that, for once, is a very, very good thing.

Daniel Tosh Rape Joke: 15 Mixed Reactions On Twitter

Daniel Tosh is that guy that created a webisode series called Tosh.O on Comedy Central way before Rob Dyrdek basically did the same show on MTV. He shows video clips of people being jackasses and even recreates some of the moments by bringing said jackasses on his show. He may be hilarious to some, but recently when he did a rape joke he came off as the jackass and people immediately headed to Twitter to express how they felt. (Because, well, that's just what our society does now when a debatable situation like this happens. We'd rather do that than write a novel on our Facebook even though a lot of people still do that too.)

Anywho, here's the breakdown on why people got either infuriated or didn't care less about the incident.

The Six Rising Acts We're Most Excited About In 2012

By Zachary Swickey

It's hard to believe that nearly half the year is already over. With April having come and gone, we've already endured our first big fest of the season - Coachella, of course - and thankfully this year's Grammys helped make the beloved Bon Iver a household name. Best of all, Adele is on track to receive the first diamond record (10x platinum) since Usher's '04 effort Confessions.

So, basically it's safe to say that 2012 is already a hell of a year in music, and we've spotted some amazing new acts on the rise this year that are sure to only make it better. You may already recognize some of the names (who hasn't heard of Kimbra at this point?), but we hope you get well acquainted with all of them.

Here are six of our favorite acts on the rise. Who are some of yours?

Bon Iver's Justin Vernon Recording Album With Rapper Astronautalis

By Zachary Swickey

Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon must not be keen on taking breaks, because despite being on the road for most of 2011 – touring behind his Grammy-winning self-titled album – he somehow found the time to record a new full-length effort with his rapper friend Astronautalis.

While the concept may seem like a radical departure for Vernon, it’s really not if you are aware of his other side-gig with his supergroup Gayngs – a “collective” of 25 musicians, including Har Mar Superstar, rappers P.O.S. and Dessa from Doomtree, as well as three members of Solid Gold.

The record will also reportedly feature Bon Iver drummer S Carey and producer Ryan Olson (the man responsible for forming Gayngs) with Vernon’s April Base Studio in Wisconsin serving as the project’s headquarters.

"This process was exhilarating, and it drove us further. We were originally going to be down there for a day,

Lovely, Still

Somewhere in heaven, the great Alfred Hitchcock is grinning with pride at Nebraska’s newest prodigy, Nik Fackler. It’s hard to believe that “Lovely, Still” is the 25-year-old outsider-director’s first feature, and oh what a shocker it is.

For the first three quarters of the film we are led down one mysterious path only to later emerge somewhere entirely different. In other words, we are very neatly, tricked! Backtracking, we see Fackler’s clues — none of them hidden, all blatantly there. So how is it we manage to miss them? Hmmm ...

Beneath the intrigue, “Lovely, Still” is a love story — but not a frivolous one. It’s the kind that gets under your skin and into your guts, changing your life forever. And much like Hitch, Fackler propels his story with the help of superior actors. From principals Martin Landau, Ellen Burstyn and Adam Scott all the way

Page's Fears Over TV Transition

Page's Fears Over TV Transition
Ellen Page was wary of accepting a role in upcoming TV series Tilda - because she worried she'd be criticised for transitioning from film to the small screen.

The actress, 23, shot to fame as the lead in hit movies including Juno and Whip It and admits she feared taking her career to TV.

But Page insists she couldn't turn down the script for HBO's upcoming comedy Tilda, in which she stars as an assistant to a high-powered Hollywood journalist, played by Diane Keaton.

She tells Collider.com, "(TV) just wasn't necessarily what I thought my next move would be. I didn't foresee myself shooting a pilot right now. It came along and... I read the pilot and I loved it. I was intellectually inspired, artistically inspired and I'm a huge fan of Diane Keaton.

"To be honest one of the only issues (in taking the job) was perspective - how people would perceive me doing TV. God, I sound like such an egotistical jerk. But who even cares what I do? I'm a huge fan of HBO. Their work is absolutely incredible (and) there's been a shift in mediums. I'm stoked to be involved and we just shot the pilot and I had a great time - I'm just hoping it will continue."

But despite her initial fears, Page's TV career appears to be taking off - HBO executives have purchased a comedy series she's creating with her Whip It co-stars Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann.

Page adds, "I'm writing a show that HBO bought called Stitch N' Bitch with two friends of mine. And I've been writing a screenplay as well. Who knows if these things will ever even (take off) but I'm having a blast doing it.

Ellen Page Will Work for Tilda

Ellen Page has joined Tilda, HBO's thinly veiled Nikki Finke comedy from Oscar-winning writer/director Bill Condon. The pilot stars Diane Keaton as an intimidating Hollywood blogger and Page as "a morally conflicted creative assistant" in whom Tilda takes a special interest. Guess this means that Stitch N' Bitch (the HBO project that the Juno alum was producing with Alia Shawkat and Har Mar Superstar) is dead. [EW]

Britney Spears Rejected Hits By Lady Gaga, Rihanna

The Internet is abuzz over a track that made its way online that supposedly features Britney Spears singing Lady Gaga's "Telephone." It's a fact that Gaga initially wrote the tune for Spears for inclusion on her latest album Circus, but Britney rejected it. It ended up being a happy accident for Gaga, who teamed up with Beyoncé and recorded the track herself for The Fame Monster. The rest, as they say, is history: "Telephone" gave birth to the eye-popping, cinematic "Telephone" video, and the track peaked at the third spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (it currently sits at number 10).

"Telephone" wouldn't be the first track that Spears rejected. Take a look at the other songs that have passed through Spears' transom.

"Telephone"

As stated above, Gaga presented the song to Spears for inclusion on Circus, but it Spears rejected it so Gaga kept it for herself. For what it's worth,

Mendes Recreates Video Leafblower Effect On TV
Eva Mendes recreated her windswept look in the new Har Mar Superstar video on late-night TV in America on Monday - with the help of a leafblower.

The sexy actress appears to be taking a full-on gust in the face in the Tall Boy promo and she told comedian George Lopez the effect was created by garden equipment.

She told the chat show host, "This video was shot for no money, so when you don't have money... you gotta get creative. To get this cool special effect we, basically, used a leafblower."

Lopez learned about the story before the show and had a leafblower backstage. The actress switched it on and pointed it in the host's face to recreate the video effect.
