Last night's episode of Toddlers & Tiaras was extra special because this particular episode featured "one of us." Rich Juzwiak—co-creator of Pot Psychology and owner of Winston the cat—was asked to judge the Universal Royalty Hollywood pageant, so he donned a tux and became something of a Greek chorus for the reality… » 1/19/12 1:15pm 1/19/12 1:15pm

Pageant Parents: Living Vicariously Through Children Makes You Look…

A lot of people think that parents who enter their little girls into child beauty pageants are crazy. This video, made with love by Pot Psychologist Rich » 10/14/08 1:20pm 10/14/08 1:20pm, kinda proves it. It's a montage of footage, clipped from several documentaries and TV shows about child pageants, of parents trying to coach from the sidelines…

If You Hate Mariah Carey, Watch This. If You Love Mariah Carey, Watch…

People either love or hate Mariah Carey for the same three reasons: 1) Her music; 2) Her girlie-ness; 3.) Her money. I think that reason #2 is why people write her off as annoying or even insignificant, which I find insulting because I think that it's bullshit to automatically devalue anything that's "girlie" — the… » 8/26/08 2:20pm 8/26/08 2:20pm

Pet Sounds: Winston Makes Weird Noises

FourFour's (and Pot Psychology's) Rich Juzwiak has this cat Winston. You may know of him. He's very weird, in the best way possible. He's barely a cat, which I think — being a dog person — is why I like him. He's kind of like a living Mogwai. But in this video that Rich made of Winston's "noises," he's also kind of… » 7/11/08 11:00am 7/11/08 11:00am

"I'm Not Here To Make Friends" Is The Mantra Of Reality TV

Some reality shows are competition-based. Some are merely a fishbowl for eager voyeurs. Some have a cash prize. Some promise careers to their cast members, while others promise romance. But on every single reality show, one truth remains constant: Participants are not here to make friends. FourFour's Rich Juzwiak… » 7/08/08 3:30pm 7/08/08 3:30pm

Anna Nicole Biopic: As Delightfully, Trashily Watchable As Its Subject…

So it looks like Anna Nicole, the movie about our late, large-breasted embodiment of the American dream, might not get the theatrical release its producers were hoping for. However, the movie was leaked online and we got a chance to view it. It's kind of perfect in its stupidity, shoestring budget, and bawdy tone… » 5/20/08 5:30pm 5/20/08 5:30pm

The Paper's Amanda Lorber Wins Hearts, Sings Songs


>
We love MTV's The Paper, and its fearless editor-in-chief Amanda Lorber. FourFour's Rich Juzwiak (whom you may recognize as the hunky voice of reason from Pot Psychology) wrote a great post about Amanda that puts into words — much more eloquently than we ever could — just how wonderful The Paper really is.
