George Tabb Punk Now

It’s been nearly 20 years since I last spoke to or heard from George Tabb. His voice over the telephone sounds substantially raspier than I remembered. “You have to have your life go horribly wrong to want to do punk rock,” he says, and if that’s the case, then Tabb is punk as fuck.

A nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn, NY, Tabb moved to Greeenwich, CT when he was just 7 years old. This may have marked the beginning of his road to ruin. He didn’t get along with his father and was bullied by the local kids for being Jewish. “The kids there had no idea what a Jew was. They would search my head looking for horns or think I drank baby blood,” says Tabb of the experience. As Tabb got older, he moved to Tallahasee, FL to go to college. Things weren’t much better there. “My college roommate’s father was the Imperial Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan,” notes Tabb. However, Tabb would soon find an escape, playing in his first punk rock band in 1979.

Between Two Ferns Zach Galifianakis Hillary Clinton

No matter which side of the political spectrum you are on, it’s always nice to see the U.S. Presidential candidates take a break from all of the seriousness to appear on comedies. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have already been making their late-night talk-show appearances throughout the campaign, but the former stopped by for a visit on Zach GalifianakisBetween Two Ferns. This is a pretty significant moment (and by significant moment I mean that for Funny Or Die) as the very informal interview show is finally back after a long hiatus.

Those familiar with the show will recognize the brand of humor that BTF delivers as host Galifianakis is known to ask very awkward and out of date questions. And this interview with Clinton is no different from the rest. Check it out here below.

Two Doctors, One Time Lord: Samantha Bee Brings Geeks To The Brexit

Samantha Bee Brexit

So last week, as everyone in the world seems to know by now, Brexit happened. A portmanteaux of the words Britain and exit, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the economic zone of the European Union, or the EU. There are a lot of politics involved in Brexit, but frankly, we’re not so concerned with that.

What we are concerned with is awesome, geeky stuff. And to that end, on her show Full Frontal comedienne Samantha Bee managed to create an incredibly new geeky term, “British Twitter,” and coupled it with one of our favorite imports here at Geeks of Doom, Doctor Who. Not only that, she was able to incorporate not ONE, but TWO of the many faces portraying our favorite Time Lord.

The clip is just over two minutes and will probably make any and all U.S. fans of BBC America laugh — really hard. Try and keep the soda from streaming out of your nose.

U Umlaut

A town hall debate today that included Republican frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, which was to have focused on what was referred to as “an attack on America’s core values,” took a strange turn when the two contenders actually joined together for a 40-minute rant about the dangers of the umlaut.

Yes, you read that correctly. The umlaut. For more information, continue reading.

President Obama Gives The Word On The Colbert Report

President Barack Obama made an appearance yesterday on The Colbert Report where the U.S. prez took over “The Word” segment of the show, rebranding it “The Decree.” Just before the President took Stephen Colbert‘s seat behind the desk, he told the host, “You’ve been taking a lot of shots at my job, I decided I’m gonna go ahead and take a shot at yours.”

In the segment, Obama took on his “Obamacare” healthcare detractors, reading off the script as if he were Colbert, to humorous effect.

Watch the videos of Obama’s appearance on The Colbert Report here below.

Darth Vader in Ukraine

The Ukrainian Internet Party is pushing for reform in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and who better than the Dark Lord of The Sith, Darth Vader, from Star Wars to get things done!

The former Jedi and evil henchmen for the Galactic Empire (or at least someone dressed like him) is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections there as a legitimate candidate. Vader even has an ad campaign making rounds on the internet this week featuring beautiful fields (not unlike Naboo), a horse, and even a traditional Russian instrument being played by Lord Vader to a familiar stirring tune.

Check out the ad campaign videos here below.

The Simpsons Groundskeeper Willie On Scottish Independence

On September 18, the people of Scotland will vote whether to secede from the United Kingdom, gain independence (yet again — remember Braveheart?), and become its own country. It’s up in the air right now how the Scots will vote, but celebrities across the UK have been offering up their opinions: Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and former Doctor Who star David Tennant hope there will be a “No” on Scottish independence, while Highlander immortal Sir Sean Connery and action star Gerard Butler are hoping for a “Yes.”

Now, Scotsman Groundskeeper Willie from the long-running animated FOX series The Simpsons has spoken out on his views regarding the upcoming Scottish independence vote. Check out the video here below.

First Look At The New Satanic Monument Being Created For Oklahoma Capitol

The Satanic Temple Satan Monument design for Oklahoma Capitol

Remember the Satanic Monument that a Satanist group proposed for the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds? Well, whether Oklahoma wants it or not, it’s being created right now.

Back in January, The Satanic Temple, a New York-based religious organization, used Indiegogo to successfully fund the creation of their proposed Satanic monument, which they hope will be erected at the statehouse to “complement and contrast the 10 Commandments monument that resides there now.”

While it appears that Oklahoma doesn’t want the monument — which features a 7-foot-tall rendering of Baphomet, the goat-headed winged Satanic deity, sitting cross-legged on a throne under a pentagram with a child on both sides of him — The Satanic Temple is putting their donations to good use. According to Vice, the group has hired an artist trained in classical sculpture, who is currently working on the the monument, which, when completed, will then be cast in bronze.

Vice reporter Jonathan Smith got a look at the statue in progress and posted some photos of it, some of which you can see here below.

Seth Rogen Promotes Alzheimer’s Awareness To U.S. Senate; Calls Out Senators Who Left Early

Seth Rogen Promotes Alzheimer's Awareness

If you haven’t already noticed, Seth Rogen is a very funny guy. With so many comedic roles, screenplays, and more under his belt, Rogen shows no signs of slowing down. But he took a moment to take a break from it all to bring a very serious matter to our attention: Alzheimer’s disease.

On Wednesday, the comedian spoke before the U.S. Senate about the horrifying disease, and how it has affected the people close to him, such as his mother-in-law who has the illness. Naturally, not everything was serious, as Rogen, known for his stoner roles, opened with a rather lighthearted joke: “Yes, I am aware that this has nothing to do with the legalization of marijuana.” He then went on to explain the reasons that brought him in front of the Senate in the first place, including that he’s a huge House of Cards fan.

While the Pineapple Express actor can’t help but inject humor into everything he does, he was serious about the importance for the need for more Alzheimer’s awareness, education, and research.

Hit the jump to check out the video of Rogen speaking before the U.S Senate.

6 Reasons Life Was Way Better When Russia Was The Bad Guy

PUTIN

The Cold War was the best! No. Wait. Let me start over. The Cold War was the best because we knew who we were fighting. Let’s face it, the war on terror is about as specific as the war on war (patent pending). It’s an obscure blanket term that focuses more on an ideal than a physical enemy. And as an American I can say with no hesitation that we need physical enemies. We need guys to point the finger at and give the finger to. Guys we can put on the fronts of t-shirts and parody on television. Plus, you can’t punch a concept in the face… or screw its wife (metaphorically speaking, of course).

During the Cold War, we had the Soviet Union; the great red bear led by mother Russia herself. A vodka-soaked, capitalism-hating empire bent on world domination (at least that’s what our media seemed to think). It was like Cobra, if everybody was the Baroness. With America’s current foreign policy going the way it’s going (we’re looking at you Syria and most of the Middle East, for that matter), we might not be too far off from bringing back the times when our hatred of other nations seemed more politically based and substantially less racist.
