This recap lacked something. Oh, I know:

It was an excellent indicator of how awesome Gabe’s True Blood recaps would turn out to be, though. Read every one, never watched an episode.

This, back and forth, forever:

For real, you guys, this shit is barf.

I don’t remember which post first brought me to Videogum. At some point in 2008 I googled a meme or pop culture reference and ended up here. The writing was excellent, the writers were smart and accessible, the commenters were a force to be reckoned with, and I was hooked. Without Videogum I would never have seen The Room and would be blissfully unaware of Hugh Jackman’s propensity for peeing his pants. I am a sucker for a running joke.

I don’t have a point or insight to share other than this sucks. I am not the pithy writer that most of you are. I commented occasionally, but mainly got a lot of joy out of reading what you all wrote. I feel I know many of you very well. I did have the pleasure of attending one Monster Meet-up and would love to meet more of you if given the opportunity. It is truly wonderful how welcoming everyone is/was, even of the trolls. My avatar is stolen from an enigmatic and prolific troll from the early days. For the record, I was not Da Cake Eatur.

As of Friday, I will NOT have fun at dinner.

PS. I’m not, nor have I ever been, Da Cake Eatur. I Gingered up his avatar for Halloween and never changed back.

Where have you gone, Da Cake Eatur? Our pop-culture blog turns its lonely eyes to you.

I know I’m Donna Darko-ing everybody else by now. Gabe, thank you for everything. Thank you for your humor, thank you for your compassion, thank you for your perspective. Thank you for telling us (the monsters and the world) when we were being too ridiculous and when we were being just ridiculous enough. The only thing that keeps me from a horrible depression spiral at the thought of you leaving is that Kelly is here to keep the ship on the right course.

Good luck with your new endeavors. I will be clicking subscribe on everything you do.

Also, iz u relly prezidant of holliwod?

She’ll keep an eye out for you. And for bears.

Great caption, FLW, but I, as a baseball fan, must point out that mumble jack is and will always be singular in the traditional (super-racist, obvs) 7th inning stretch sing-along.
