Stealing is wrong, plain and simple. What Josh Ostrovsky, aka “The Fat Jew,” did was wrong.

As journalists — and mind you I am no perfect journalist — our general edict is that when someone has written something and you quote from it, citing the original author is often enough to make what you’ve done acceptable.

For a long while, Ostrovsky took other people’s jokes or commentary and shared them across the web without…

Do you ever plan to sleep again?

If so, you may want to avert your eyes from these supremely creepy American Horror Story: Hotel promos, which FX just debuted on YouTube.

The 15-second clips, both of which are scored by a moody, creepy version of Elvis’s “Heartbreak Hotel,” feature arresting imagery — one of a faceless man pounding on a hotel room door (housekeeping?), one of a claw-clad hand choking a woman in clown makeup….

And yes, there is a pretty sweet shot of Ash’s chainsaw hand.

This new promo for Starz’s upcoming 10-episode horror-com, an extension of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise, is light on plot details — but heavy on quips, gore and Bruce Campbell’s toothy grin. He’s reprising his role as Ash Williams, the scardy-cat turned devil-may-care demon fighter of Raimi’s original trilogy

This time around, Campbell will be joined by Ray Santiago, Dana Delorenzo, Jill Marie Jones, and Lucy Lawless. The…

Eerie photos capture the London Underground minus the crowds

LONDON — Most people know the tunnels of the Tube as a heaving mass of human flesh, all armpits and elbows as Londoners and tourists climb over each other to get to their destination.

There are a few times though – after the last train has departed, during one of those endless strikes – when the London Underground is totally deserted. Times your mind can’t help but think back to that dodgy Creep film of a few years ago.

In ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ premiere, family drama doesn’t stop for zombies

Fear The Walking Dead might be a show dead-set on setting itself apart from its predecessor, but the opening minutes of this new companion series are actually a pretty nice homage to its mothership

With a twist.

Instead of Rick Grimes, a dedicated officer of the law, the first scene of the series introduces the audience to Nick, a drug addict who is awaking not from a wound-induced coma but a horrible drug bender

4 questions managers ask to better compare equally qualified candidates

A bona fide sweets enthusiast will have no trouble selecting the chocolate lava cake, extra sauce, over the cheese plate on a dessert menu. But what if there’s a lava cake, a strawberry rhubarb pie with ice cream, creme brulee and beignets, this time with gelato? Each dessert option is well-suited to be your next post-meal obsession — and for very different reasons. All of a sudden the decision becomes a little trickier.

The legendary Patti Smith is a great many things: singer, songwriter, poet, visual artist … and, apparently, Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan

After 13 seasons, the Adult Swim show is coming to an end — and what better way to wrap your show than with a Patti Smith original?

The series finale will air on Sunday with an episode titled “The Last One Forever and Ever (For Real This Time) (We ****ing Mean It),” and…
