I think you’ll really enjoy my new Vulture video, in which Julie Klausner and Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman analyze some of the worst talk-show meltdowns in TV history. Drunk Ed McMahon! Topless Drew Barrymore! DON’T CUT TO COMMERCIAL! KEEP THE CAMERAS ROLLING, DAMMIT!

My latest for Vulture: indie rock legend Travis Morrison (of the recently reunited Dismemberment Plan) and comedian Chris Gethard dress up a disembodied torso with rock t-shirts and talk about bands. And Chris’s high school penchant for fedoras. Also, there is a lot of NSFW discussion of Glenn Danzig. You should watch it.

“The financial stakes are much higher for multi-billion-dollar movies and shows, of course. But so are the philosophical stakes. Marvel currently has the eyeballs of hundreds of millions of moviegoers across the globe — something that’s never been true before for any comics company. It has a massive platform to tell all those viewers across the planet, ‘Anyone can be a hero, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else.’”
— I poured my heart into an editorial about the need for diversity in Marvel’s film/TV output. Its comics are experiencing a golden age of inclusion — time for the screen stuff to step up. (And hey, it’s my first written piece for NYMag / Vulture!)
