Last week we tried to ride in the wake of MacGruber's publicity wave and this week it's Sex and the City 2. We put THOUGHT into these things, people! SATC2 (do not judge us because we are down with the acronym) and The View favorite Mario
Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean's autobiography, Still
Standing: The Untold Story of My Fight Against Gossip, Hate, and
Political Attacks. Yes. Political attacks. Sigh.
But she is pretty. So there's that.

'On assignment' in New Orleans for My Damn Channel.
If you're a resident here, you have our maximum respect and thanks for giving the rest of us one of the most magical places on earth. If you've visited, keep coming back. If you've never been...make it happen captain. You'll find warm souls, inspired sounds, the finest food, drink, fun and good times you can experience.
We lead with laffs at My Damn Channel. But there's more than comedy beneath your fingertips. This is why Harry Shearer was the first artist we asked to trust us to let him reach you without one drop of Hollywood execu-nonsense in the way.
Harry has lived in New Orleans for over a decade, shuttling from here to
LA and the rest of his working world. From The Simpsons, to Spinal Tap, to SNL, to Le Show on NPR, Huffington Post, comedy albums, music, music videos, and more - Harry Shearer is an artist who never stops creating, entertaining, living and giving.
Harry has created many of the most-viewed, most-talked about videos on My Damn Channel. He has two projects in the works that you'll see next.
On June 4th, you'll see "Deaf Boys." Here's a sneak preview along with a note about the original song and short film to come.
This August, Harry will release a documentary feature film he's directed about the city he loves. "The Big UnEasy" opens on the 5th anniversary of Katrina to tell the story about the un-natural disaster that nearly destroyed New Orleans. The film details why the levees broke, why the city is still in danger, and why Congress and The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is putting more cities like New Orleans at risk.
Harry will share news and videos about the making of his film over the summer. We presented a series of videos back in 2007, on the 2nd anniversary of Katrina called "Crescent City Stories."
Ugh. So much happened this week and we are exhausted. We launched Celebrity Autobiography with Will Forte, Kristen Wiig and Eugene Pack. Then, you know how when you're thinking about something you suddenly see it everywhere? Well, we saw Will Forte on tv, like, a million times this week and he has seeped into our subconsciousness. We think he might actually be our new best friend. It's bad. Message to movie marketers: you win. It worked. All we can think about is going to see MacGruber this weekend.
Justin and Alden interviewed all those people and that made us tired. Grace went to that H&M thing and she was tired. Our office is moving, and everyone knows moving sucks, so everyone in the office is tired. We're Twittering and Tumblring and Tired. Are you there, god? It's me, My Damn Channel. We need a weekend, bad.

At My Damn Channel, we like celebrities and we like hilarious things.
And then we realized... there are CELEBRITIES who like celebrities and hilarious things. If we could get celebrities like MacGruber and SNL stars Will Forte and Kristen Wiig to read, say, the ridiculous AUTOBIOGRAPHIES of celebrities like Tommy Lee and Tiger Woods, it would probably be AWESOME.
Then we met a man named Eugene Pack and he made all of our celebrity dreams come true.
Witness the celebrity trailer now.
And we were right. It is celebrity awesome and celebrity hilarious. New celebrity episodes will be on My Damn Channel every Wednesday beginning May 19th.
Thank you. You're welcome. Celebrity.

Anticipate the official announcement... it will change lives... especially famous ones...
It's Mother's Day on Sunday. We're taking our mother to see that Babies movie. We don't really want to see it ourselves, you know, because it's about babies, and babies are, like, not really our thing, but, well, that trailer is kind of cute and our mom totally wants to see it and everyone keeps talking about it and how the babies are so adorable, like no one has ever seen a baby before and everything that babies do isn't adorable anyway, and ... FINE. I WANT TO SEE CUTE BABIES WITH MY MOM.
Also, if you're in Los Angeles tonight, you should head on down to the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood to watch EASY TO ASSEMBLE on the big screen. Illeana Douglas, Kevin Pollack and producer Dominik Rausch will be there. Tell them we said "hi," and ask Illeana what she has against Justin and Alden's bromance.

My Damn Channel was born 7/31/07. We were still in diapers when the Webby Awards first starting loving our artists with 7 nods in 2008.
They honored our family 5 more times in 2009. And this year, 8 new acts of love. We suck at math, but that's a lotta Webby lovin'.
The Webby Awards were just announced today.
THANKS to every human who voted - the judges, the fans...and congrats to every creator in webland for the recognition for your work n' fun that goes into forging the new world.
BIG love and respect to all in our family. Here are links to the My Damn Channel honored class of 2010:
Extra special love to Illeana Douglas and the "Easy To Assemble" team for her nomination for Best Individual Performance...and to David Wain and Amanda Peet and the whole Wainy Days fam for their nomination for Best Individual Episode for "Jill."
