10 Things To Buy Your Dog For Your Home Office, ‘Cause They’re Your Loyalest Helper

Published

on

Your current situation may look a little something like this: Your pup is your best fluffy coworker who you see on the reg. It may not have been part of your initial 2020 plan to work from home full-time, but you’re thoroughly enjoying responding to emails while also petting your pup who’s chilling on your lap. Of course, you want the loyal helper in your life to feel completely cozy in your home office space and need the deets on how to set your dog up in your home office.

As much as you enjoy them sitting on your lap, you know it wouldn’t be a bad idea to give your golden retriever or husky mix their own comfy place to sleep while you type away. In a bed that’s equally as fluffy as they are, they could dream about chasing a tennis ball or enjoy a delicious treat with you during your coffee break. You’ll tune into virtual meetings without one worry that your pet is getting the love, attention, and care they need.

Of course, when you’re on your lunch break, you can reach under your desk, give them a pet, and then play with your pup in your home office. To get started on this dream of a situation, check out some of these products and ideas, and hit “Add to Cart” on your next break.

1. Put A Plush Bed Under Your Desk

First things first, you need a place for your pup to chill while you’re crushing your career goals. This plush dog bed will do the trick by giving your pet a luxurious place to curl up. Put it under your desk or in the corner of your home office beside a pet-friendly plant, and watch your dog rush to it every day for a nap.

2. Serve Their Food And Water Into Trendy Bowls

Having a trendy bowl for water and one for your pup’s food is #necessary. They need to have easy access to these essentials, especially if they’re hanging out in your home office every day. Purchase a set of these two-handle bowls, and set up your dog with their very own cafeteria of sorts. Create your own basket of snacks to put on a shelf nearby.

3. Dress Them In A Custom Hoodie

What you wear to your home office may be very different than what you wear to your *actual* office. Currently, your #OOTD might consist of one of your favorite crewnecks paired with some leggings.

Let your dog get in on the WFH fashion trends by dressing them in this cozy, custom hoodie in the morning. Then, carry them into the workspace you have set up.

4. …Or A Comfy T-Shirt On Warmer Days

On warmer days, when you have the thermostat in your home office turned up a bit, put your dog in this cute, baseball-style tee. It’ll get them in the mood to curl up under your desk and play fetch when you’re in between meetings. Not to mention, it’ll match nicely with whatever decor you have in your home office.

5. Let Them Rock A Colorful Bandana For #Inspo

Pups who are accompanying their paw-rent on super creative and brainstorming-heavy jobs may want to rock a colorful bandana like this one. It might inspire you to think outside-of-the-box or to always bring your A-game. After all, your dog will look ready to walk down a puppy runway.

6. Prepare Them For Big Meetings With A Bow Tie

Of course, some days, you have to ditch your Casual Friday-like attire and opt for something more professional. If you’re hosting a meeting or being interviewed, send your dog a memo to get dressed up, and then help them put on this floral bow tie. When they show up in the background of your screen, your coworkers will be instantly impressed by their style.

7. Treat Them To A Fresh, Fun Chew Toy So They’re Never Bored

Especially if you have a puppy, you’ll want to give your pet an adorable toy to play with while you work on your assignments. That way, you don’t have to worry about them chewing up the legs of your desk chair. This octopus toy, in particular, will ensure the dog you love is never bored. It’s made of rope, so it’s durable.

8. Toss Them A Squeaky Toy When They’re Energetic

Does your pup respond better to squeaky toys? Well, look no further than this cactus toy that’s absolutely perfect for dogs with lots of energy and a love for the great outdoors. It’ll keep your pet happy and occupied. Add it to the mix, OK?

9. Give Them A Treat For Being A Very Good Boy

Your dog is probably always a good boy. But, you’ll be so proud of and impressed by them when they’re chilling with you in your home office all day long exuding an unlimited amount of cuteness. For that reason, give them a pumpkin and apple dog treat. You wouldn’t want any other companion during your day.

10. Hang Up A Custom Portrait Of Them On The Wall

Last but not least, show your appreciation for your loyalest and cutest helper by hanging up a custom portrait of your dog in your home office. Lean it against a wall so they can see themselves when it first arrives, and then put it in a prime spot. At the end of every day, pick up your pet and show them the artwork, and say, “Who’s the greatest work helper of all?”

How to Watch the ‘South Park’ Pandemic Special Live Tonight

Published

on

By

You know the world is in a rough spot when every day feels like an episode of South Park. And this month Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s animated comedy is taking a stab at addressing just how weird things truly are.

South Park is returning with “The Pandemic Special,” the long-running comedy’s first ever hourlong special episode. Wondering how you can watch this new episode of South Park? Or what this means for South Park Season 24? We have you covered.

When Will South Park Be on Comedy Central tonight?

We may not be getting a full season just yet, but in the meantime we have a teaser to hold us over. A new episode of South Park will premiere on Comedy Central this Wednesday, September 30 at 8/7c. “The Pandemic Special” will be a one-night only, hourlong episode.

If you have cable, you’re already set to watch this new episode live. Just turn your TV to Comedy Central at 8/7c and prepare to be horrified. And if 8 p.m. is too early for you, don’t worry. There will be two more encore performances at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. You even have an option to watch if you don’t have traditional cable. Most live TV skinny bundles like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and Sling TV come with Comedy Central. And if none of those work there’s always streaming.

Will South Park Be on Hulu?

Nope, things are different this year. Once HBO Max launched it took all of South Park with it. So if you only have Hulu, you’re out of luck. But if you’re a Hulu and HBO household, you’re all set.

When Will South Park Be on HBO Max?

New episodes of South Park will be made available on HBO Max 24 hours after they premiere on Comedy Central. That means you’ll be able to stream “The Pandemic Special” starting on Thursday, October 1 at 8/7c p.m.

What if you have HBO but you’re unsure if you have HBO Max? Don’t fret. If you subscribed to HBO through cable, the now defunct HBO Go, or HBO NOW you have access to HBO Max. Simply enter your HBO username and password into HBO Max and start watching. There is a downside to this new system. HBO Max is currently only available through the Apple, Google Play, and Samsung TV app stores, meaning that it’s not yet available on Roku. You may have to log into HBO Max on your computer and use Chromcast or a HDMI cable to watch the streaming service on your TV.

Is There a Trailer for the South Park Special?

You bet, and it’s just as dumb as you would expect. While Randy is launching a new strain of Pandemic Special weed, the kids have to adjust to life in their new socially distanced classroom. Keep your mask handy and watch above.

Is the South Park Special the Start of Season 24? Will There Be More New Episodes of South Park?

“The Pandemic Special” will be the first special in South Park’s history. It’s not connected to this upcoming season and will be a standalone, hourlong episode. There’s a good and bad side to that news. The bad is that “The Pandemic Special” is the only South Park episode that we know is premiering in 2020. Comedy Central has yet to announce when Season 24 will start, and considering how the COVID-19 pandemic has halted Hollywood production we’re probably going to have to wait a while. But on the flip side, an hour of South Park is better than nothing.

Disenchantment season 2 (parts 3 & 4)

Published

By

Disenchantment spoilers follow.

Even though Matt Groening’s first Netflix production Disenchantment wasn’t initially a hit with critics, part two of season one fared much better, which bodes well for parts three and four of the animated fantasy sitcom.

When the streaming giant first announced the show, it ordered 20 episodes and the first batch of 10 arrived in August 2018 as “Part one”.

“Part two” arrived almost exactly a year later with 10 more episodes and another cliffhanger.

But now that we’ve got to know Princess Bean and her magical friends, what lies in store for the trio?

Here’s everything you need to know about the next 10 episodes of season two – or parts three and four, if that’s what you prefer to call it. Yes, we’ve got a headache too.

Disenchantment season 2/part 3 release date: When can we expect it?

At first, fans assumed that season two would arrive quickly as all 20 episodes for parts one and two were commissioned at the same time. However, the wait turned out to be a bit longer than expected, and Disenchantment part two didn’t arrive until September 20, 2019.

Luckily for us, the show won’t stop there, with part three set to arrive this year.

Series creator Matt Groening expressed his joy for the renewal in an official statement, promising plenty more medieval hijinks for fans of the show.

“We’re excited to continue this epic journey with Netflix,” he said. Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists, and beloved characters getting knocked off.”

Chatting to ComicBook.com in August, John DiMaggio, who voices King Zøg, assured fans that new episodes were on their way, despite the wait.

“It is coming back,” he said. “There’s a bunch of episodes, and we’re cooking along.”

He added: “We’re in production right now. So I’ve been to the studio to record, and I’ve also been at home and recorded stuff. We’ve done both. But yeah, we’re cooking along.

“And I don’t have a date for you, but believe me, on social media, everybody will be the first to hear when we find out, you know what I mean?”

Netflix

Chatting to Esquire about how he devised the concept that eventually grew into Disenchantment, Groening said: “I started a notebook full of ideas for the show in 2012…or maybe a little earlier. Every time I thought of a different kind of fantasy trope, I’d write it down and see if there was a way of sticking it in the show.

“I have lists of every kind of small mythical forest creature: gnomes, fairies, imps, goblins, gremlins, trolls, plus a bunch that I can’t remember right now. It’s all there in the notebook.

“But it’s hard. If you want to tell jokes about elves and dragons and so on and so forth, pretty soon you realise, ‘Oh, every single dragon joke has already been made.'”

Disenchantment season 2/part 3 trailer: Where can I watch it?

We don’t have a full-length trailer yet, but as soon as it arrives we’ll pop it right here, just for you.

Disenchantment season 2/part 3 cast: Who’s coming back?

Although part two did end with another cliffhanger, the residents of Dreamland weren’t all turned to stone this time around, so most of the main cast are guaranteed to return.

That means Abbi Jacobson will be back as Bean.

Chatting to Showbiz Junkies about the star of the show, Groening said: “[Co-developer] Josh [Weinstein] and I sat down and we laid out the world. We worked on this for a very long time and it became quite clear that Bean was the centre of the show, and that Elfo and Lucy, her personal demon, basically completed her.

“She’s the most interesting character that we came up with for a long time because she had so many flaws and she’s still lovable.”

Weinstein added: “It’s also the idea…where women princesses would grow up in a patriarchal kingdom and never be allowed to rule. She’s clearly much more together and smarter than her younger half-brother, Derek, and she will never be able to rule. And, so, it’s a much more interesting conundrum for us.”

Then there’s Eric Andre as Luci, DiMaggio as Bean’s father King Zøg, Sharon Horgan as Bean’s mother Queen Dagmar, and Tress MacNeille as both Bean’s stepmother Queen Oona and her half-brother Prince Derek.

Billy West and Maurice LaMarche will also be back as Sorcerio and Odval, along with a number of minor roles they also voice.

Hopefully we haven’t heard the last of Matt Berry as the fan-favourite pig Prince Merkimer either.

Music for part three of Disenchantment will probably be provided once again by composer Mark Mothersbaugh, who’s most famous for his work on The Lego Movie, Thor: Ragnarok and 21 Jump Street.

Disenchantment season 2/part 3 spoilers: How does season 1 set it up?

Surprisingly enough, part two ended in a very similar fashion to part one. Once again, it seems that Bean’s mother wants to manipulate her for some nefarious purposes, but this time round, Luci and Elfo are there to stand by her side.

The end of part one promised answers to some of the show’s biggest mysteries, but now that part two has dropped, we still don’t know what Bean’s “destiny” really is, aside from the fact it’s part of a “dark battle of a hundred centuries”.

We also don’t know much more about Elfo’s origins either. Before his death in part one, Elfo discovered that he wasn’t actually an elf, but a half-elf. His father Pops the Elf was about to reveal the truth, only for Dreamland to attack Elfwood. 10 episodes later, his mother’s identity still hasn’t been uncovered.

Netflix

New mysteries which part three will have to answer include what the evil secret society really want and who or what those strange mole men creatures are. Why do they look so similar to Elfo and why are they working for Queen Dagmar?

Unlike previous shows created by Groening like Futurama or The Simpsons, Disenchanted will continue to explore a linear narrative that unfolds across each season instead of these earlier hits which often reset their status quo at the end of each episode.

Disenchanted isn’t all that different from these shows, though. Don’t be surprised if part three ends up including more references to Futurama or The Simpsons like this one in the season one finale. After all, part two seemed to confirm that Disenchantment and Futurama are directly connected, so we’re pretty much guaranteed to see more Easter eggs pop up in future seasons.

Disenchantment is available to stream on Netflix.

Gogglebox favourites Jenny Newby and Lee Riley have shared a hilarious wardrobe blunder as they filmed for the Channel 4 show’s new series.

On Instagram, the pair shared a photo of them posing together with Jenny giving a thumbs-up as Lee smiled into the camera.

Channel 4

The best friends captioned the pic: “Filming Gogglebox 🎥🎥 today enjoy your day as much as we are 😘.”

But fans were quick to point out that Jenny’s top matched the curtains in Lee’s caravan.

The pair then leaned in to the joke and uploaded a pic of Jenny standing right in front of the curtains and captioned it: “You was right folks!!Jenny did blend in 😂😂😂 #Gogglebox where’s wally.”

Jenny and Lee have been best friends for decades, and earlier this year they shared an adorable throwback photo from 16 years ago when they went on a cruise.

But last month we got a little insight into the other important person in Lee’s life, his boyfriend Steve, who shared pics of the couple together on holiday in Cyprus.

The new series of Gogglebox started earlier this month, with the cast and crew still observing social distancing guidelines.

And fans were delighted to see the return of another fan-favourite pair, Mary and Marina.

The pair who are both in their 90s, missed out on the last series as the show’s producers didn’t want to put them at risk, even though camera rigs were set up to prevent the crew coming into contact with the stars.

The new series also welcomed two brand new families – the Walkers and the Baggs.

Gogglebox airs Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
