Kathy Landin is a freelance internet pop-culture junkie (and web video producer). For a brief time in 2011, she was THIS close to being Charlie Sheen's social media intern for the summer. She's blogged for local TV stations, anonymous dating adventures and stupid advice columns. Mostly she entertains herself by practicing the fine art of idiocy, which you can watch in Kathy Landin's "I'm an Idiot" Show. Or, if you have a short attention span, get 140 characters of idiocy on Twitter.

The 2013 Oscar for Best Closing Goes to the ‘Here’s to the Losers’ Tribute Song [VIDEO]

After a rather entertaining open to the 2013 Oscars, host Seth MacFarlane clearly didn’t want it to end with just the hurried list of sponsors and the usual “let’s get to your local news as quickly as possible even though we just sucked 4 hours of your life away” attitude of the closing.

How do we know that? Because he made sure there was a really awesome closing song.

2013 Oscars – Ang Lee Wins Best Director for ‘Life of Pi’ [VIDEO]

Because it’s always fun to award the Oscar for Best Achievement in Directing to a director for whom English is a second language -- will we ever forget ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and Roberto Benigni? -- the Academy chose Ang Lee. Although Michael Haneke for ‘Amour’ was probably a close second.

2013 Oscars – Anne Hathaway Wins Best Supporting Actress + Doesn’t Bother Acting Surprised [VIDEO]

As even our pet rocks predicted, Anne Hathaway won the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for her portrayal of Fantine in ‘Les Miserables.’

5 Excellent Networking Sites to Help You Find Jobs

As soon as you knew you wanted (or needed) a new job, you got on Facebook and let all your friends and connections there know what you could do and that you were available, right? You probably also went straight to LinkedIn and quickly made a profile there so people could find the awesomely productive employee that is you. But the phone didn’t start ringing.

That’s not because networking online for a job doesn’t work, it’s because you have to find all the places where you can make the Internet work for you.
