On an unrelated note, Italians are GREAT at graffiti. They are also mostly white, but that is beside the point. My top three graffitis that I saw in Italy, in no particular order:


“Tupac is rapper”

“Frozen food is very good”

This is how it would have gone down if I had been conducting this interview:

Me: What’s your favorite movie quote, A.Sorks?

Posted in: The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: Patrick Stewart In A Ball Pit

[Ed. Note: Well, at negative nine it is clearly not that bad of a comment, which means good work everyone on a week of mostly pretty good comments. But also it is still kind of gross to imply that someone is hiding out trying to fuck children. You know? Because how horrible that is?]

  1. We can drink now, right?

  2. It’s Friday, Let’s dance Oscar Style

  3. Good weeks, everyone! Here’s hoping the weekend is lovely and full of joy. Or at least fine and full of pie. Whatever works.

  4. wow wow! Last week, I was so happy that Mary gave me associate editor’s choice, and this week, I made into the highest rated comments? Last week was the first time I’ve ever been included in the Monster’s Ball, so to see my name again is surprising!

    Thanks everyone, and have a great weekend!

  5. Kelly was unable to choose a comment this week because she was too busy trying to hang out with the Pussy Posse.

  6. At last, I feel validated!

  7. Frank Lloyd Wrong had the best comment ever yesterday and I think we should all take some time and go back and appreciate its brilliance.

  8. Has there ever been a better day than Friday? There has not. Have a good weekend!!! Let loose!

  9. Thanks for keeping me entertained/distracted again this week everybody! Now get out there and make the most of those weekends! Mine started last night and so far has included/will include (but is not limited to) the following: queercore, a tuxedo, a hat, wine, gin, cider, waffles, and cards. Wish me luck! It’s going to be a whirlwind!!

  10. I was super busy this week and feel like I missed out on so much here in Videogumland. So I’m going to drink and sleep! Good weekend, everyone!!

  11. Well, last night we got the dreaded 11 PM call from my college kid at the ER where he was treated for a burn on his left hand that he got in the Chem lab (purifying lead?). He texted us a picture. It’s really gross, and I just want him to come home. But he’s fine today and totally over it. I, however, am not. So tonight I drink.

    (Also, the burn is located just under the thumb that he broke two years ago in a fall from a ski lift. This kid’s gonna be the death of me.)

    • Purifying lead? Is Packy going to be an alchemist? Do any of his textbooks look like this???

      You just need to add one atom to lead to get gold… Trust me Kate, it’s worth the burns if your son can produce gold at will.

    • “Purifying lead”, eh? So that’s what they’re calling it these days.

      Actually, I don’t even know what “it” is, but “purifying lead” just sounds like a euphemism for something nefarious. I’m sure there’s no need to be alarmed.

  12. How every office should be on Friday afternoon:

  13. HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m going to have a marathon of RuPaul’s Drag Race’s past seasons starting….right now! Don’t be jealous of my boogie!

  14. Friday. Time to get down.

  15. Congrats GUISE!!! Happy Friday!!!!!! I’ll be spending my weekend like this:

    and people will all be like

  16. i waited all week for the “how was everyone’s day today” post to talk about this, but there wasn’t one. soooo: ON SUNDAY NIGHT I LITERALLY KNEW WHAT WAS UP WITH TOPHER GRACE. He was sitting on a plane, in coach, next to me. He worked on a screenplay called “Realm Master” and then watched Finding Nemo! Nice guy! He used the bathroom twice!

    • You should send this to one of those celebrity gossip sites, so you could be listed as a “spy” or “source.”

      “Spies told us that Topher Grace watched Finding Nemo.”

      Realm Master is not listed on his IMDB page, so you have the inside scoop! I’m not even a big fan of Topher Grace, but am very easily starstruck. Sounds like you remained calm in the presence of Mr. Grace.

  17. Oh!!! I feel so special.

  18. If you think Ashley`s story is nice…, 4 weeks ago my friend’s dad basically got a cheque for $7131 workin 10 hours a week from there apartment and they’re buddy’s sister-in-law`s neighbour did this for nine months and got a cheque for over $7131 in there spare time from there labtop. applie the tips at this website……… BIT40.ℂOℳ
