Guys, I just wanted to take a second and remind you that next Tuesday is Videogum’s Official Fourth Birthday Party. This is a casual but no less important celebration of all of the laffs and memoriez we have collected over the years. Mr. Double Rainbow! Hahahaha! Remember him? Nicholas Sparks writes down the bones! So many great times we’ve had. Or whatever. It’s a blog! How deep do we want to go with this stuff?! But as far as excuses to get together with nice people and drink and eat cake go, the anniversary of a fun little website IS NOT SO BAD. So please, won’t you join us next Tuesday evening at 7PM at the Professor Thom’s upstairs bar on 2nd Avenue in New York City for a toast. Maybe you will make a new real life friend! Maybe you’ll HAVE A BABY! If nothing else, when you are a leathery bag of dusty old bones, you can turn to your grandchildren and tell them that you were there for the fourth anniversary of Videogum, and they’ll ask what was Videogum, and you’ll say it was a mildly popular, like, not THAT popular, but a mildly popular website that had found its audience and cherished that audience, and they’ll ask what’s a website, and you’ll tell them about the Internet, and they’ll ask why there isn’t the Internet anymore and you’ll say because there isn’t any electricity and they’ll ask why not and you’ll say because the world is covered in water. SO LET’S DRINK UP!

  1. Will there be nametags this year?

    • Make your own nametag. Get “Lawblog” tattooed on your forehead. Or everyone could just dress up like their avatars.

      The real question is, will there be a simul-chat?

    • That’s what I wanted to know last year, but then I met a bunch of you guys and now I don’t need even them. Let somebody else be the one who tentatively approaches a group of nerds he thinks may be Videogum commenters!

  2. logging on and not seeing the caption contest is about as disappointing as Waterworld.

  3. Let’s not forget this Friday is also the second anniversary of the single greatest monster comment thread of all time. Ah memories.

  4. I’ll bring the piñata.

  5. I wish I could go. Weird how this party is in NYC for like the fourth year in a row. :(

  6. I went last year and spent 20 minutes arguing with Frank Lloyd Wrong about whether Joe Mande would fit inside a Pokemon ball, and then someone introduced me to Mary HK Choi (I think) and I panicked and stared blankly at her and then I spent another 20 minutes arguing with Frank Lloyd Wrong about whether Joe Mande would fit inside a Pokemon ball. Sooooo, yeah, full life.

  7. Jesus H. Christ! I was just revisiting some old posts, and I had no idea everybody’s heads came off in the Spike Lee post. That shit was insane.

  8. I may go but how will you know it’s me so you can say hi? I do have a sinus operation the next day. It could be my last hurrah forever.
