Guys! Guys! We have some very exciting news to share with you. The Videogum Family continues to grow as today we welcome our newest associate editor, Mary Miller. You probably know Mary best from her work on the really wonderful Tumblr, RatsOff!, which has been a go-to Videogum resource for years for the latest and most fun things that the Internet has to offer. Mary is going to bring her particular brand of expertise to the site, making sure that we have all of the coolest stuff that the kids want, as well as working with a new stable of freelance writers to widen and improve Videogum’s appeal. (On that note, please continue to send your submissions to and I am sorry we have not really gotten back to you on that but that is also one of the reasons that we hired Mary, in addition to the fact that she’s great.) She will also, of course, be filling in for Kelly in the event that Kelly is fired. All of this and more! A big and bright future await us despite the devastating loss of Mitt Romney!

Anyway, you can get in touch with Mary at, although only write to her there if you really have a reason to, and don’t be weird or a creep about it. She will also be sifting through your tips for hidden gems so keep those hidden gem tips coming. And please, please, I really mean it, please help us welcome her to the gang because we are very excited and happy to have her! (Image via Shutterstock.)

    • ALSO I don’t want to tell you how to do your jobs, but you and Kelly outnumber Gabe. I’m not saying that you should tie him up with tinsel garland and lock him in a closet and run amok on the site, but at the same time I am very pointedly not NOT saying that. *wiiiink*
