Jack Black, Fred Armisen and Jibz Cameron are doing this comedy show “Ambiance Man” about art and it premieres on the YouTube channel MOCAtv on December 20th. It’s going to be like Portlandia for art but on MOCAtv.

Happy birthday, VHS! YouTube got you “Tape Mode,” a kinda goofy but fun new feature that makes streaming videos look like they were ripped straight from cassette (as if the internet needs any more fetishization of the noisy, blurred-out aesthetic).
