  1. I have downloaded that Stephen Colbert podcast but not listened to it yet.

  2. “Introducing Rosie Perez” I’ll say! The credit sequence that taught me to dance.

  3. I’m glad they took that scene out from Iron Man 3. Given the Mandarin’s true nature, it wouldn’t have made as much sense.

  4. And now I have “Bye Bye Birdie” stuck in my head.

  5. every time i read an article about the juggalos it makes me feel -__-. yes i get it, icp is awful and their music is awful and yeah juggalos are an interesting subgroup of the american population. but this article makes it evident that there are places where you don’t have to deal with them, and that weirds me out even more? it’s like, i get it, poor people in larger cities are different than poor people other places around america. a lot of poor people in middle america like the juggalos and form a somewhat shared experience concerning them. and for some reason it’s totally cool for yuppies/hipsters to go and observe the gathering of the juggalos like lame ass anthropologists and document it for rest of the world to see. but they always sound like bigger douchebags than the juggalos. “we went to the gathering of the juggalos and discovered that they were in general easy going people who liked to smoke a lot of weed and had awful taste in clothing and music. how hilarious and creative are we!” i don’t know. this is an odd thing for me to get weird about, because icp is really awful and their music actually scares me at times…but i empathize with the juggalos. life sucks, poverty sucks, and alongside poverty comes a whole heap of other issues that can scar you for life. at least juggalo culture is inclusive and allows people a place where they can be open and do what they want?

    • 1) Yes! I agree with you about the lameness and faux-anthropologist trend of reporting on the Gathering, not least because it’s been done now about a billion times and there’s nothing new to report, and also because it originates in an adolescent “wouldn’t it be crazy/ funny to do this” mentality.

      2) Juggalos are still awful. You say as much, but still. When juggalos are allowed to do whatever they want, they end up cutting off their own nipples, like that one guy this year.

  6. Wow, Vince Gilligan sounds just like Badger.

  7. My parents had the moon landing, but we have the Stephen Colbert/Daft Punk Fiasco. Which is apparently now THE NEWS STORY OF OUR TIME.
