    Tim Heidecker’s new Bob Dylan song is better than most ‘real’ songs (Audio)

    You may remember Tim Heidecker’s 14-minute-long Bob Dylan parody “Titantic,” released last year. Well, the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! star has outdone himself this year, albeit in much more economical style with its under-four-minutes run time. The thing about his latest song, “Running Out the Clock” — “leaked” under the guise that Dylan, himself, will perform the “lost” track at the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 —

    SXSW Comedy: Day 3, feat. Tim Heidecker, Reggie Watts, T.J. Miller and more!

    I’m ridiculously thankful that sites like Wikipedia and Reddit are back online following their Jan. 18 blackout protest of SOPA and PIPA, two bills that threaten the open Internet.
