Watch Father John Misty’s Surreal Animated Video for ‘Date Night’
Over the weekend Father John Misty dropped a new animated video for “Date Night,” the latest song form the singer-songwriter’s album “God’s Favorite Customer,” which was released in June.

The clip, which was directed by artist and fellow Sub Pop musician Chad VanGaalen, is some kind of commentary on contemporary dating, with surreal characters looking at dating apps and a crystal ball that gives recommendations. Misty himself makes a cameo toward the end of the video — in animated form, of course, riding on a winged piano while holding a cocktail.

Misty (aka Josh Tillman) is currently on a North American tour, with dates at San Francisco’s Outside Lands and the Austin City Limits Festival.

In his review of the Los Angeles show, Variety’s Chris Willman wrote: “The songs he performed from ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ — (very) arguably his best effort to date — localize his despondency, which

Father John Misty has shared his new animated video for “Date Night,” the latest single off the singer-songwriter’s latest LP God’s Favorite Customer.

The video, directed by artist and Sub Pop musician Chad VanGaalen, doubles as a psychedelic spin on modern dating with disfigured superheroes scrolling through dating apps and a crystal ball serving up partner recommendations.

A cartoon version of the singer born Josh Tillman appears in the video’s closing moments holding a martini while riding atop a bat-winged piano.

Album Review: Father John Misty’s ‘God’s Favorite Customer’
Leonard Cohen is gone, so there’s not much competition: Father John Misty is rock’s most fabulous miserabilist. However much of a nihilistic joker he might have come off on last year’s polarizingly philosophical “Pure Comedy,” he wasn’t kidding around when he promised that its rapid-fire follow-up, “God’s Favorite Customer,” would be “a heartbreak album.” Not that Misty had been pain-avoidant before, but the previous record’s reams of wry intellectualizing made him feel like a guy who’d confined the crisis to his head. Here, he’s moved deep into his chest cavity — and it sounds like an uncomfortable place to live, if a rewarding Airbnb stopover for the rest of us.

On that last epic think piece of an album, the credits might have read: “Music by Elton John; lyrics by Kierkegaard.” One of the pleasures of “God’s Favorite Customer” is that it

Tina Fey’s 11 Best Characters From ‘SNL’ and Beyond, Ranked From Funny to Liz Lemon (Photos)
“SNL” alumna Tina Fey has come a long way since her days on the sketch comedy show. Since her turn as an anchor of Weekend Update and head writer of the show, she’s gone on to star in movies and create one of the best comedy TV shows ever in “30 Rock.” In honor of Fey’s return to “SNL” to host the Season 43 finale this week, here are 11 of Tina Fey’s best characters, ranked from the least hilarious to the most: Liz Lemon of “30 Rock.”

11. Queef Latina — “SNL”

When Fey returned to “SNL” as host in 2013, she used her monologue to remind fans of her least-remembered recurring characters. They were, of course, all made-up characters that had never existed, but even the promo materials for some of them were amazing. Fey and “SNL” suggested the movie spin-off for her fake character “Queef Latina,” dubbed “Queef Latina Ruins Christmas,

Hollywood Takes Slap Shot On ‘The Trashers’, About Most Penalized Team In Hockey History And 17 Year-Old President

Exclusive: Yellow Bear Films has acquired a script from Adam Perlman (Billions) based on the Sports Illustrated article “This Hockey Mogul Was 17. Got a Problem With That?” which was reported by Jon Wertheim.

The project is being produced by Tom McNulty (Date Night) through his MC² banner. No director is attached yet. It’s being described as Slap Shot meets Superbad.

The story is about the Danbury Trashers which was considered the most violent team in professional sports. The minor league hockey team accumulated more penalty minutes in one season than any other team before or since, but they also had the best record in the league. At their helm and president/Gm of the club was a 17-year-old kid named Aj Galante who was put in charge of the team by his father, the local king of waste management.

It follows Galante from mastering the moneyball of violence to

Film Review: ‘Wanderland’

Film Review: ‘Wanderland’
Though major studios used to crank them out by the truckload, today the movie musical is a fairly infrequent occurrence — not just because they’re commercially risky but because the genre itself is an inherently ambitious undertaking. Ranging from “Once” to Damien Chazelle’s pre-“La La Land” romance “Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench,” there have been some moderately successful attempts at making indie musicals on a micro-budget, but the question still lingers of whether audiences are willing to accept a modern movie in which people sing out their emotions.

In a risky departure from a résumé otherwise dominated by broad comedy, Josh Klausner gives it a stab with “Wanderland.” Different though it may be from his 1999 debut “The 4th Floor” — a quasi-horror thriller with surreal touches — this oddball effort is more an exercise in low-key quirkiness set in a slightly alternative universe where everything but our protagonist is a little “off.

Television Stays Youthful Buoyed by New Distribution Methods and Content, Eurodata Report Shows

  • Variety
Between safe bets and innovative content trends, TV has kept its appeal and is taking advantage of new forms of distribution, research company Eurodata TV Worldwide reported Monday at TV conference and market MipTV in Cannes, France.

Eurodata observed strong regional disparities and the rise of new forms of consumption. Over the 95 countries analyzed by Eurodata last year for its “One TV Year in the World” report, the global individual viewing time for television stood at 2 hours and 56 minutes. However, this figure concealed strong disparities between the continents: from Asia with just 2 hours and 25 minutes to North America, which ranked highest with 4 hours and 3 minutes. Europe followed closely behind with 3 hours and 49 minutes per person daily.

“In the last 25 years, global TV viewing time has remained steady, despite the increasing availability of video content online. Thus, in North America and Asia, we are seeing a slight dip, but South America

‘Game Night’ Review: Dir. John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (2018)

Game Night review: Undeniable side-splitting comedy, thrice-filtered through an outlandish, absurdist lens.

Game Night review by Matthew Ceo.

Game Night review

With the likes of Arrested Development‘s Jason Bateman and Spotlight‘s own Oscar-nominated Rachel McAdams leading the charge, Game Night features a veritable who’s who of comedic talent and establishes itself as a film far funnier than it has any right to be. The film follows an extremely competitive couple – Max and Annie – and their lifelong friends as they distract themselves from life’s problems with challenging bouts of checkers, serious games of scrabble, and meaningful charade tournaments when one thing reveals itself to be true: game night is sacred. So when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks – played by Manchester By The Sea‘s Kyle Chandler – comes to town and decidedly enters the fray, board games go out the window, and things get kicked up a notch.

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot thanks Zack Snyder for saving her career

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has enjoyed a meteoric rise these past couple of years following her casting as the Amazon Princess in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Having only appeared in minor roles in the likes of the Fast & Furious franchise, Date Night and Knight and Day prior to her casting as Diana Prince, Gadot has since become the highest-grossing actress in Hollywood this year thanks to her roles in Wonder Woman and Justice League. She’s also been honoured with the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs Festival, and during her acceptance speech she has credited director Zack Snyder for saving her career.

Kristen Bell's Daughters Keep Her 'Grounded' By Hilariously Destroying a 'Frozen' Christmas Tree Ornament
Guess we know which Frozen princess is the favorite in Kristen Bell's household!

The actress -- who famously voiced Princess Anna in Disney's 2013 smash hit animated musical -- shared a hilarious Instagram photo of a ruined Christmas ornament on Saturday, proving that her daughters might just prefer Idina Menzel's Queen Elsa.

"This will be the cover of my autobiography and it will be titled 'My children keep me grounded,'" Bell captioned the pic of the ornament, in which Anna has been unceremoniously decapitated.

Last week, Bell spoke with Et's Nischelle Turner about becoming the , and revealed that the Frozen figurine isn't the only Christmas decoration her two daughters with hubby Dax Shepard -- 4-year-old Lincoln and 2-year-old Delta -- have ruined.

The Grammy winner is less than two months away from headlining the Super Bowl Lii Half Time show, a performance that will kick off a big year for Timberlake, as well as his fifth studio album. In honor of his upcoming accomplishments, Et's Facebook Watch series, When We First Met, is looking back at his incredible evolution. 

The 36-year-old singer has come a long way in his two and a half decades in the industry; he made his first TV appearance in a cowboy hat and boots as an 11-year-old on Star Search. Six years -- and a Micky Mouse Club -- later, the performer met Et for the first time with curly bleach blond hair and smooth moves as part of *Nsync. 

"It's called adolescence, and it's painful for all of us," he joked to Et in 2007. "And look, you can reference
