Treat Yourself to a Mystery Sack from H. Jon Benjamin and Eugene Mirman's New Online Store

H. Jon Benjamin and Eugene Mirman just opened up an online store. Called Flotsam General Store, the "post-structural online shopping experience" currently offers a small-sized "Mystery Sack" for $40 and free 6-8+ week shipping. What's in the sacks? According to the store's FAQ, "Flotsam sacks are stocked according to the principes of 'positive sourcing,' with three or more Flotsam products hand-conceived by the Flotsam Design Team." Benjamin said in an interview last month that the items included in each sack will be "products that will leave a legacy. Something to be proud of for time immemorial." Here's more information on Benjamin and Mirman's new business venture [...]

Rachel Dratch, H. Jon Benjamin, Bob Odenkirk, and Basketball Players to Do Fun Guest Spots

- Rachel Dratch is going to guest star on Up All Night as an Ava Show fan that's super excited about getting some memorabilia. Sheldon and Megan: together again!

- H. Jon Benjamin is going to play Dallas's life coach on Suburgatory. His character is described as a master storyteller named Tabitha, of course, who Dallas eventually brings along on her first date with George. I wonder if they're going to eat burgers or… spy stuff(?).

- Bob Odenkirk is reprising his role as Arthur Hobbs next season on How I Met Your Mother. He will sorta represent Barney in his pre-nup talks with Quinn, which [...]

Peeking Under the Bun of Bob's Burgers

Caution: after watching this video of the Bob's Burgers cast recording their voice overs, you may never look at Bob Belcher without seeing H. Jon Benjamin in blue eyeshadow. Conversely, every time I try to look at Kristen Schaal in this video I see phantom pink bunny ears. And sometimes I just see them floating in the air. Waving at me. Excuse me, I have some business to attend to on WebMD.

Checking In…with the Voice Cast of Home Movies

On September 2, 2001, Adult Swim premiered on Cartoon Network with an airing of the Home Movies’ episode “Director’s Cut." It's been a good decade since, with Adult Swim providing literally DOZENS of hours of entertainment, from shows like Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. But it all goes back to Home Movies, about an eight-year-old and his homemade films, and the show's creators Loren Bouchard and Brenden Small, and Soup2Nuts, the animation studio that also worked on Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. Oh yeah, and the voice cast. Here's what they're up to today.

Here's a Clip of Alison Brie, Jennifer Lawrence, and H. Jon Benjamin in a Rejected Comedy Central Pilot

If you've ever wanted to see Alison Brie as a knockoff Buffy the Vampire Slayer or H. Jon Benjamin as an injured janitor, a short clip from Not Another High School Show — a rejected 2007 Comedy Central pilot from Not Another Teen Movie's Mike Bender — has been making the rounds on the internet today. A young Jennifer Lawrence also shows up near the end in a small but convincing part as a concerned high school student. (via Uproxx)

Chin Dildo Starring H. Jon Benjamin, Of Course

Guys, this is really powerful. I thought it was going to be just a bit but it's obviously a metaphor for… umm… how a lot of people stuck their chins out during the housing crisis or how people are really taking it on the chin from the economy or how people like to fuck others with their chins. Find out which it is below when HJB and his co-star, the chin dildo, give a 15-minute interview about the film and play ring toss.

Listening to the DVD Commentary for Home Movies, "Get Away From My Mom"

Columentary (title sadly not pending) is a weekly feature, in which I’ll listen to the commentary track of a sitcom, and divulge, through pretty pictures and less pretty words, the behind-the-scenes secrets the creators, writers, and cast discuss about their show. If you've ever wondered what the Home Improvement crew was eating when they came up with the idea to have Tim Allen grunt, this is for you.

Show: Home Movies

Episode: “Get Away from My Mom” (S01E01)

Original Airdate: April 26, 1999

Episode Plot: Eight-year-old Brendon, who spends his days making home movies, discovers that his mom, Paula, is dating his soccer coach, Coach McGuirk.

Jon Benjamin Has A Van Premiere Episodes: "Border" and "Little Italy"

I don't know about you, but I was really relieved Jon Benjamin Has A Van wasn't another Daily Show. Not that there would be anything wrong with that, but the show's promos seemed to indicate that it had the makings of yet another faux news show. Sure, the potential is always there for another Colbert Report, but I was really into the looser, sketch-oriented feel of Benjamin's new project: less news-y, more goofy. Unfortunately, it's that same looseness that eventually leads the pilot episodes into trouble, as it seems like Benjamin and his writers are still working out exactly what kind of hybrid his show should be.

H. Jon Benjamin Narrates an Animated McSweeney's Story in "Ballad of a WiFi Hero"

Recently New York magazine decided to combine three great things — a funny McSweeney's story by Mike Lacher, retro video game-inspired animation, and the masterful narration talents of H. Jon Benjamin. The result is the above web video "Ballad of a WiFi Hero," which valiantly exposes the secret to unlocking uninterrupted wifi when all seems lost.

Eeek! There Will a 'Bob's Burgers' Crossover Episode of 'Archer'

This is real! H. Jon Benjamin told Entertainment Weekly: “[Archer creator Adam Reed] really likes Bob’s Burgers. And the fourth season has a Bob’s Burgers tie-in, which is really bizarre.” First, join the club, Adam. Second, aaaaaaaaah! And it won't be like a little cameo, it's a full episode built around Bob's Burgers. Benjamin continued:

“It’s like a Bourne Identity-type plotline. It starts off with Archer as Bob, making hamburgers, but he doesn’t know that he’s Archer. He’s at the restaurant and these, like, I think Russian thugs come in, and Bob dispatches them expertly. And then he’s like, What just happened? How did I do that? So he has to try to figure out why he’s [...]

Animated Archer Recap: "Hearts of Archness, Pt. III"

"Don't talk like black people, OK?"

Before I get to any actual recapping: Archers of Loaf reference! Archers of Loaf reference! Archers of Loaf reference! It's like Andy and April talking about "The Neutral Milk Hotel," but BETTER. Why? Because it's the name of a lacrosse team, and it gives me a reason to listen to "Web in Front" from their masterpiece of an album Icky Mettle, which gives me a not-at-all-forced segue into: wasn't the third and final part of the "Heart of Archness" trilogy rather icky?

Bob's Burgers Preview Features H. Jon Benjamin, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schall

Here's a two-minute preview for Bob's Burgers, the new Fox animated comedy featuring H. Jon Benjamin, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schall. It starts airing on January 9th, and is mercifully the first new animated show on that network that has nothing to do with the creators of Family Guy.
