The Best Things That Happened to Us This Week
We had ups. We had downs.

It was another busy week where Rob Ford loomed large. Still, we had non-Fordian highlights. Here are some of them (…okay, one Ford highlight).

#5. B Rich and Friends, ‘Out For a Rip’ videoNorthern Ontario boys getting sauced and hacking darts? Fuckin’ right, bud.
 

#4. Jon Bon Jovi, Probably Bringing NFL Team to Toronto, Sings W/ RoyalsLet’s go behind the velvet curtain and into the world of celebrity hosted, black-tie charity ball events.

#3. Eminem Pays Homage to Hip-Hop HIstory and Offends – THIS JUST IN: Eminem–still skilled, still offensive.

#2. Seth Rogen and James Franco Simulate Sex in the ‘Bound 3’ videoThis happened on Monday, but it already feels like five months ago. The Internet news cycle moves fast, man. Have you watched it since then? Give it another go, if only to truly appreciate the romantic, goofy passion James Franco brings to his Kanye West role.

#1. The 10 Funniest Moments from the Rob Ford-O’Reilly Factor appearance – Ford has reached an astounding level of celebrity in the United States while managing to retain the loutish charm that has made him a media darling/terror up here. This O’Reilly Factor appearance is a new epoch in this strange saga.

Relive the best parts of this week now, enjoy your weekend later.
