If you read one album review of Kanye West’s Yeezus, PLEASE make it this one. Big Ghost has reviewed several albums for Okayplayer, and they are all AMAZING. This is the first sentence of his review of J. Cole’s new album:

Sir Isaac Broccoli Bundles?! And each review only gets better from the introduction. Enjoy.

If you don’t find this hilarious, I highly recommend watching Sherlock. You’ll be hooked with the first episode. It’s available to stream on Netflix.I have no idea to whom to give credit, but I saw it on Neatorama.
I know the Internet and all your friends were freaking out a week or so ago when “Season 4” of Arrested Development was released on Netflix. And while my jury is still out on the new episodes (I’ve only gotten through about half of them), let’s take a look at the most impressive breakdown of in-jokes and self-referential humor of the show. Recurring Developments is an interactive visualization of the running jokes in the Seasons 1-3 of Arrested Development. You can break it down by episode (and it shows every reference to all running jokes in that particular episode) or you can highlight individual running jokes and see which episodes they are referenced in. It’s wildly nerdy but pretty awesome. Go spend five minutes and you’ll find yourself laughing.
