I don’t know where I’m going to go now. Like, yeah there are other funny sites, but they are all so mean. The one thing that set Videogum apart from every single other pop culture blog was that everyone here is so nice. The comments were a respite from the arguments and mean-spirited jabs of other sites’ comment sections. ok bye.

This has to be feasible, right? We need to save it this is literally the only good site left on the internet.

It’s just selfies all the way down.

See, if I hadn’t gone pee I would’ve won the Seuss Reference Race 2013. But now I must concede power to you.

I can see this slowly devolving into Seussian wordplay.

“Drop your iphones! Or you’ll become zibrones!
Why are there furloughs? We should be riding purrlows!
The schmesident gazmonkled the government
now we are stuck with a wubbamuverment!”

I gots a question- What would everyone say is the most recent “big” quote from the Simpsons? You know, one that everybody knows and quotes all the time. Do we have to go back to the 90′s for that? Or was there one in the early ’00′s that made it through the cultural threshold?

This comment is worded in such a wonderfully grim way.

Same here, I thought it was one of those Christian abstinence jams.

I’ve been reading the ‘gum since 2008 and if you look at any of my comments from back in the day you’ll find that I was a bitter, mean, and often clueless person. Luckily somewhere along the way I (mostly) shaped up and a lot of it was due to this site.Videogum actually changed my worldview. The combination of the insightful but always funny writing and the kind but hilarious commentators is really a rare occurrence here in cyberspace. In all my travels on Internet I’ve yet to find a better site.

So thanks Gabe, I guess. You were the level-headed magnet that brought all these cool cats together. I wish you nothing but the best. May Faygo rain upon you from the heavens.

Where’s DJ Juicy Jeff?

Why is The To-Do List’s trailer sooooooo long? It was basically ten million hours long. And also incredibly unfunny. Where have all the indie dramedies gone this year? Last year there was so many and there hasn’t been a single one yet in 2013. The only one that’s on the horizon is The Way, Way Back.

I also graduated in 2005 and I can’t log into Stereogum where I’d normally share this, so awkward prom story time?

September, Senior year. The principal dropped in at the beginning of a period to give us an inspirational pep talk about the future, all that good stuff. He told us about how his daughter had introduced him to this song by Lee Ann Womack called “I Hope you Dance”, and how it really made him feel how it’s important to grab life by the horns and face it head on.

He would drop in several times throughout the year, giving us a similar speech each time, always mentioning that song and those gosh-darn-motivational lyrics. “If you get a chance to sit it out or dance/ I hope you daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaance”.

So prom finally arrived, I went stag, yadda yadda, pleasant enough time, and then BAM. Principal got on stage and introduced the song as the official “Class of 2005 Last Dance Song”. Having watched way too many teen soaps/John Hughes movies, I took this as a dramatic camera-revolving-around-me sign, and I went up to my #1 crush and asked her to have the last dance with me. She turned me down with a grimace, and I was left standing there kinda awkwardly. Trying to remain cool, I “casually”(aka super awkwardly) asked the rest of her table “Hey, any of you other girls wanna dance then?”

All of them looked away and left the table.

After prom my friends went to the woods and sat in a pit and got drunk.

Anyway, anyone else have prom bomb stories?

American Idol.

Yeah I thought Thanksgiving Friday was all y’all Americans biggest shopping day extravaganza blowout ever?

Also, here in Western civilization Easter Monday is no big deal but in Poland it’s called Smingus Dyngus (aka Wet Monday) and you get to spray people with water.

A few months ago I noticed how more and more taglines were getting ridiculously lazy, so this fits right in with the bland, simplistic direction marketing has taken.

Future Shop- “Exciting stuff”
The Source- “I want that”
KFC- “So good”
Yoplait- “It’s so good”

What happened to the days of “TIMEX! It takes a licking and keeps on ticking!”

See I thought so too because I just assume America is always hot, but then it said 29 and 30 degrees but with flurries, so they are Fahrenheit but just really low? You got it worse than us Canadese!
