Jet Around with Curren$y.

As of this morning we've got nine days left until season four of Arrested Development drops on Netflix. For all of you needing a refresher on the series' many running jokes, this amazing chart should do quite nicely.

Also, apropos of nothing, here's Wayne Coyne, wearing what looks to be a laser thong, covering David Bowie's “Heroes” on Fallon this past Wednesday.

Hopefully, that'll get you going for your weekend. If not, then perhaps you can use the fact that you weren't sucked into the land of Oz during Wednesday's tornadoes as an excuse to go out and celebrate.

On that front, you should have no trouble finding something worthy of your time.

Battle of the South Beer Pong Championship at McFadden's
Ever paid $750 to play beer pong before? Anyone? Nope? Oh. Because that's precisely what each of the teams in this tournament did. This is definitely the place to be if you want to see what that type of person looks like. We're guessing they're the types that take this shit way too seriously.
