WATCH: Martin Shkreli on Drug Price Hikes and Playing the World’s Villain

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PCb9mnrU1g In which the self-styled Supervillian of the year explains his point of view.

BONUS:

In one of the most incredible acts of trollery/performance art I have ever witnessed on these here internets, Shkreli, backed by homies in ski-masks, taunts the fuck out of Ghostface and threatens to "erase [him] from the rap history books." This dude is is beyond legendary by this point, he's some kind of ancient myth.

WATCH: Johnny Marr Plays 'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before' on Fallon

One imagines Mozzer hates this and is shouting KARAOKE at his monitor, but it sounds, musically at least, pretty glorious. Sometimes I forget The Smiths were at one point my favourite band, but this reminded me.

WATCH: Chris Rock - Bring The Pain (Full Show)

http://youtu.be/SwNxKVPxsaw Watching Dave Chapelle's Behind The Actors' Studio earlier lead me to watching Chris Rock's, which lead me to reinvestigating this, his '96  breakthrough special, and damn son, shit is still fucking funny. "You think anyone in Rwanda got a lactose intolerance?"

WATCH: Bill Hicks' Banned David Letterman Appearance

http://youtu.be/Em2JT1npScM When he was dying of cancer, Bill Hicks went on David letterman's show and did some typically brilliant and important stand up. David LEtterman, in his gatekeeping wisdom, deemed the material unfit for human consumption, and refused to air it.

Many years latter, he decided to make a public apology for his actions, and invited Bill's mother on to his show, and aired the previously banned footage.

WATCH: Eminem & Lil Wayne Live On SNL

As far as I can tell, Eminem is only good now when he does songs with Lil Wayne. This shit is hardcore. Apart from Em miming the chorus on No Love, that soiled it a bit for me. Yeah, I meant soiled, keep your "p". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca-u4Dk4tH4

RIP Captain Beefheart

Captain Beefheart is dead. Long live Captain Beefheart! I'd never seen that Letterman footage before tonight, but the following documentary, narrated by John Peel, I saw on a little analogue television in Matchborough, Redditch in 1997. I think it was on after Duckman. I didn't sleep afterwards, and went down to the shopping centre on my own, and watched everybody come in to work.
