Wired Magazine Honors Robin Williams

To encapsulate the life of one of America’s most treasured pop culture figures in a series of video clips is impossible. He was our Genie. He was (Oh, Captain) Our Captain. He was our dream nanny as Mrs. Doubtfire and our fabulous gad dad as Armand Goldman. But before any of those iconic screen roles, Robin Williams, who died Monday, was a comedian. And thanks to the internet, we can at least cull together a thoughtful retrospective for someone who gave the world everything he had. From improvising his way around the stage of The Dick Cavett Show in 1979 to his fifth and final HBO standup special Weapons of Self Destruction in 2010 and everything else that happened across his 40-year career, Robin Williams lived to make people laugh and bring them joy. So put on your favorite loose-fitting button down shirt and join us on a journey through the television highlights of Mr. Williams. He was a raw and offensive stand-up comic, a TV star, a terrifyingly quick improviser, a roast-master, a late-night host’s dream come true, and a beloved friend, father, and performer. Here’s to his too-short 63 years.

Here’s a taste:

The Muppets’ Version of a Beastie Boys Classic

Covering the Beastie Boys can be a risky move, but it’s a sure thing when the Muppets do it.

Recently, the Swedish Chef, Beeker, and, of course, Animal assumed the roles of Mike D, Ad-rock, and the late MCA for a rendition of the Beastie Boys’ classic “So What’cha Want”—all while decked in golf attire. Though lacking that trademark early 80s anger that was a beloved hallmark of the group, the Muppets more than make up for it with a certain je ne sais quoi that can only be pulled off by felt-based creatures.

Chris Pratt Can Rap Too?

What can’t Chris Pratt do at this point?

He can French braid hair, is an expressive mimer, and managed to charm an audience after talking about that time he flashed Amy Poehler. Now, evidently, he can also rap.

The reveal of his spitting skills came out during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid on The Whoolywood Shuffle, where he revealed that he listened toEminem and Dr. Dre on repeat while smoking weed in the back of a van in Maui in the early 2000s. DJ Whoo Kid was doubtful, so he made Pratt prove it—and we’re all the better for it.

He also manages to diss Orlando Bloom and say little to nothing aboutJurassic World, but once again we can’t stop watching.
