The 10 best stand-up comedians of all-time
Lenny Bruce may have set the stage, but nobody brought it quite as raw as Richard Pryor did. Pryor basically fed off hotbed issues like race relations and personal demons. Nothing was off-limits to Richard, which meant he always got huge laughs on stage, but often at the cost of his personal life. Jailed for tax evasion, he nearly burned his face off freebasing cocaine, and even when he helped pen the classic picture Blazing Saddles, he was removed from casting consideration because of concerns over being able to insure him. He was also married seven different times. Yeah, the guy had some pretty f'ed up stories and had no problem telling them in public. Having problems viewing this?

The 30 Best Films of the Decade 10. Big Fish Painting the 1980s in black and white, Tim Burton made his mark on this decade by discovering primary colors.

16 strange, awesome Japanese commercials Commercials in America are not awesome enough. That’s why I turn my attention to Japan, a country that understands my needs. Whether you’re jonesing for pets wearing clothes or environmentalist bears or even cheese-headed guys who are just a little bit rape-y, Japan always delivers. A Green Bay Packers tailgate party might also deliver on that last one, but I digress. Here are 16 commercials that would probably never be made in America, to our great disappointment. The 15 Must-See Films of Summer 2011 Last summer was a good (not great) movie season. Granted, there were some notorious duds with Robin Hood, Jonah Hex, Avatar: The Last Whatever-It’s-Called, the one where Jake Gyllenhaal talked real funny and had his shirt off a lot, and many, many others. And, of course, there were some rather disappointing missed opportunities (*COUGH* Iron Man 2 *COUGH*). But overall, it was a solid time for both big event films and the smaller ones. There were two excellent high profile films (Toy Story 3, Inception) and a handful of great little-seen ones (Animal Kingdom, Cyrus, Solitary Man, etc.). And who could forget about Scott Pilgrim vs. the World?
