This week, Perks is taking you to a private beach party at the Ocean Club at Marina Bay, and bringing you and three friends to meet none other than Joel McHale on the set of The Soup. Assuming all that comic genius can fit in one studio.

Your Last Chance to See Mummies in Boston
Time is running short, so we'll get to the point: it's your last weekend to learn the Secrets of Tomb 10A (don't ask about 10B).
