Brody Ryan's '15 Seconds of Fame' is Now 30 Seconds

Your 15 seconds is apparently not up!

So you thought after a week or so, you'd heard the last of #StarbucksDrakeHands. Well, not if Brody Ryan, master of the coy pose seen round the world, has anything to say about it. Lucky us. After Brody brought us the Internet phenomenon known as #StarbucksDrakeHands, the cyber world responded with countless parodies of the video. And they were ahhhmazing. This week, Ryan is back to set the record straight on what really went down. As it so happens, Ryan is a rapper of sorts, so what better way to shed some light on the situation than to record a track to do just that. And he did. And we're bringing it to you. And you're welcome. Now let the parodies begin after you enjoy "15 Seconds of Fame." See the song and the lyrics below.

Comedian Ricky Smith's Crazy Adventures as King of the #RAKE Movement

Not to sound corny but, I just want it to inspire people to be kind.

When it comes to Cleveland native Ricky Smith, this comedian, writer and editor for Adult Swim's Black Dynamite is as funny and as modest as they come. Also a do-gooder, Smith founded "Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere" (or R.A.K.E) because he just wanted to get out there and be kind. What a concept right? A ton of people are taking notice and jumping onboard allowing this movement to spread like wildfire around the world. Don't believe us? Just check out the hashtag #RAKE on Twitter or Instagram and you'll see people from all over following his lead. It has left him feeling great and if you get in on the fun of simply being kind, you can get the same wonderful "warm and fuzzy" feeling as well. The best part about this movement? You don't even need money to deliver a smile to someone's face. We had the chance to talk to Ricky to see how this all started and to see how we can all do our part to R.A.K.E because let's face it, we could all use a little kindness.

The Best BET Hip-Hop Awards Tweets

Still the king? Wait. Ever the king?
The breakdown: Hosted by Snoop Dogg, this year's BET Hip Hop Awards (randomly on a Tuesday) were filled with performances galore by rappers like French Montana, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Future, Yo Gotti, and even Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The kicker? They barely gave out awards. Not that anyone was complaining (JK, tons of people were complaining on-line) but this years "award" show played out like a concert complete with a TON of their signature "cypher" battles that according to Twitter, pretty much ended up being the highlight of the show. At the end of the festivities, Uncle Snoop passed out his "favorite snack" which is apparently a bacon, sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich with grape Welch's jelly. No words.

While Sunday is reserved for football in a lot of households around Orange County, last night many folks took a break from watching guys toss the pigskin to check out the Emmys.

The Funniest 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Tweets

@sarahcolonna Dear Mom and Dad: Hey, at least I haven't done this! #VMAs
From the horrendous pre-show where none of the "hosts" let the "artists" talk, to the actual award show that didn't disappoint in giving us all comments that were laugh-worthy, once again Twitter was more exciting than this year's MTV Video Music Awards show. The truth of the matter? Following Twitter is almost always more fun than any actual award show and this year during the 2013 VMA's, the tweets that the viewers churned out didn't let us down. People definitely weren't shy about bagging on the term "Mahomie" that was spewed out of singer Austin Mahone's mouth, or Miley Cyrus's excessive need to keep sticking her rank tongue out her mouth while gyrating a foam finger into her latex covered vagina. The MTV #VMA hashtag was on fire and we captured some of the best of the best just for you.

Patton Oswalt's Great Twitter Prank Over the Weekend

Categories: LOL, Twitter, comedy

Gotcha suckas!
On Saturday, Patton Oswalt's Twitter feed sparked outrage from simpletons and big laughs to just about everyone else following him. The clever comic/actor sent a slew of tweets that, when taken out of context, make it seem like Oswalt had crossed the line from funny into complete insanity that compelled plenty of threatening messages to be hurled at him by people not paying close enough attention. To that all we can say is, don't you feel dumb about not catching on to the joke? In reality when you piece them together and read it in order, it's simply this comic doing some amazing trolling while hitting some hot topics out there in the world today. Well played Patton. Well fucking played. (Insert slow clap here)

'Ain't That America' With Lil Duval is Straight Up Bussin!

When it comes to bringing amazingly epic and comical quick quips on MTV's "Guy Code," Lil Duval has it down to an artform. He's so hilarious in fact that MTV2 gave him his own show that will be premiering on July 9th called, "Ain't That America." And for good reason. He's funny on TV, his stand-up is funny, he's funny on Twitter...are you noticing a trend here people? Lil Duval kicks ass in the funny department. Before the premiere of his new show we got the scoop on what he has in store for us, found out how he handled being at EDC, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to shit talk with him about some of his recent tweets. What we learned is that without a doubt, Lil Duval is living the American dream.

Ummm...Kanye and Kim Named Their Baby What?

Hey North. Did you know your mom is famous for spreading it down South?

We know it "isn't nice" to make fun of kids one ever said it wasn't nice to make fun of the names that parents give these kids. Ever since Kanye West knocked up Kim Kardashian, social media has been buzzing trying to predict the name that they will choose for their over privileged baby. Hey, we even got into the fun and had a few suggestions of our own. After pushing out their daughter on June 15th, yesterday the speculation was finally put to rest. They settled (and we do mean settled) with North West. North effing West! What? Our suggestions weren't good enough for you? As our OC Weekly music editor Nate Jackson put it, "This will be the name that will keep on giving." And he's right. If the jokes are endless now, they will only get worse once North West (oh my god, we can't even say that name with a straight face) hits the school scene and the daily teasing begins. Some might say with Kanye and Kim as parents she won't get teased but let's be perfectly honest here, she'll get teased even more. Don't fool yourselves.

Amusing Twitter Reviews of This Week's Major Album Releases

Jena Ardell
Flowery, contemplative album reviews are nice, but when it comes to finding amusing music criticism on the go, nothing tops Twitter. After all, when people only have 140 characters to spend, they tend to get right to the point. So we browsed through endless feeds to see what people are saying about the albums that dropped this week. Here's what the Twitterverse had to say about Black Sabbath, CSS and Beady Eye.
