Dr. Steven Brule, local cable news personality.
[Video Link]. Here are some clips from the upcoming third season of Check it Out! with Dr. Steve Brule, starring John C. Reilly, and created by Tim and Eric. The new season premieres on Adult Swim Feb. 27, at 12:30 a.m. ET / PT.
Buy seasons 1 and 2 here, if you're not already hip to it. This show is not for everyone, but it is for everyone who is cool and knows what is truly funny. That is why it is my favorite funny show. If you do not agree, you are a dummy.
There's a longer version of the preview here. And for those truly obsessed, Eric Wareheim has been posting other little video snippets to Instagram and Vine and Facebook.
For those in Los Angeles, there's a free season 3 premiere and screening on Sunday, Feb. 23rd, 10pm at the Vista Theater.

In an update to our previous post
about Tim Heidecker guest-editing/hijacking Rolling Stone
(possibly in a fictional sense), Tim Heidecker has been "escorted out of the building after being fired
without explanation or reason." He is said to be "very sad"
about it, as is the world. (via Tim Heidecker on Twitter
Here is something you should know is happening: Tim Heidecker (of Tim and Eric and the Cain Train) has taken over Rolling Stone magazine. At least that's what he's telling us, and why he's posting his "dream covers" and holding meetings with Matt Taibbi. Does it need to be real? Is Wikipedia the final word on this? No, you just have to bear witness, then form your own conclusion. Don't overthink Tim Heidecker, just enjoy him and his arguments with Jann Wenner. (via Tim Heidecker on Twitter)
Comic genius Tim Heidecker, who is roughly 50% of Tim and Eric (also behind "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie," and "Check it Out! with Dr. Steve Brule"), has yet again created something I find very funny.
"Recently, I read that Bob Dylan’s new album Tempest will feature a 14 minute song about the Titanic," he writes, "So I wrote this song to see if I could beat the Master to it. I can’t wait to see how close I got to the real thing!"
Above, a preview. The entire opus is fifteen minutes long, and you can purchase it here.
I don't know how Tim Heidecker's gonna top this latest song: "CAIN TRAIN, BABY." Audio's here. Featuring famed voice actor Rich Little.
Heidecker, in case you don't know, is half of "Tim and Eric," and has been cranking out these weird surrealist Herman Cain anti-jingles for a couple weeks now.
Anyway, that's Heidecker, in the sexy photo at left. Follow him on Twitter. And at top, Kevin Ackley made this fan-art homage to the Cain song cycle. An album cover, perchance?

this appropriately surreal fan-video for "Lord Cain," the jingle Heidecker released on Friday night.
Oh, and Herman Cain's sure having a busy day today!
