Tim Heidecker is putting himself on trial for murder right now as part of On Cinema's latest absurd twist

The winding mythology of Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington’s On Cinema At The Cinema is one of the most in-depth gags of either man’s career, a long narrative of deaths, medical maladies, and the occasional actual movie review, all powered by the permanent faux-resentment festering between its two “stars” (i.e.,…

Tim Heidecker proudly proclaims his “cuck” status in new parody anthem

It’s not easy being a social justice warrior in the modern age, when preaching tolerance, racial equality, and the idea that maybe we should give rape victims the benefit of the doubt is liable to get a person labeled as a white-knighting cuckold shill.
