You’re taking the time out to tell us that you’re not remembering Heath Ledger? Um… Thanks for letting me know what a good person you are, wow.
Or are you being ironic and I’m being an idiot? It really could go either way.

Just today in my film history class we watched Network, and my teacher was talking about how it’s still relevant to television today and used this show as an example. Which makes me so sad.

My favorite part was when he tried to make a joke about crackers and everybody was just like “….” because we don’t really do crackers in America.

The thing that bothers me most is how they spell it “nite” which is the stupidest short-hand spelling of any word. It only shortens it by one letter!

Thanks Twilight fans and MTV for making it that much harder for women to be taken seriously.

Every day is better if Matthew Lillard is in it.

I agree with reasons 2-5 but I think there was a reference to him having written papers at some point or something, although I could be making that up. And I don’t think it’s that crazy to think that people with serious undiagnosed illnesses to do some research and find a doctor who can help them. A lot of them choose Dr. House because he has such a good success rate. The episode with the people from Cuba was pretty ridiculous, though.
And it’s a lot better than in Grey’s Anatomy where about 50% of their patients die by the end of the episode.

Ah, touche. You’re probably right.

I told my roommate about this, and she told me to tell you that yes, at least her room is in 1998. And she likes it that way.

My roommate. Her three favorite bands are Third Eye Blind, Matchbox Twenty and Jimmy Eat World. I’m sorry, I fear there’s no help for her.

I have such good memories of watching Dunston Checks In as a kid. I know it’s technically a pretty bad movie, but I loved it so much as a kid I have to protest this nomination.

When you google “live puppy feed” Videogum is the second result.

Ugh, the Black Dahlia is truly awful. I’m so sorry.

Agreed! Michael Cera was the only good part of that movie. Jason Bateman would have been if his character didn’t end up being such a slimy creep.

You know, I watched a Robin Williams stand-up DVD with a coworker (I’m a good employee) and afterward thought “huh. That was actually kind of funny.” I didn’t think it was hilarious, mind you, but it was kind of funny. Why can’t his movies be like that?
And a good movie with Robin Williams? Dead Poets Society, obvs. That movie is great. And Good Will Hunting.

True story: This morning I was woken up by a phone call from my parents telling me my childhood dog had died. This video is exactly what I needed today. Thanks Videogum. For reals.

I love that La Pequena was included in that video. La Pequena for president 2012!

I agree with Across the Universe. Terrible movie. I’m also going to re-nominate Black Snake Moan. Samuel L. Jackson keeps a sex-addicted Christina Ricci locked in his house so he can heal her with Jesus while Justin Timberlake is at war. One of the plot keywords listed on IMDB is “Slut.” This movie is TWMOAT.

Maybe it’s just because I’m still in college, but Halloween is the BEST holiday! Everybody dresses up in costumes and gets really drunk and sometimes candy is involved – sounds like a good time to me!

My roommate is in love with this band and every time she plays one of their songs I think it’s The Libertines. Or Babyshambles, to be fair to the current Pete Doherty-fronted band. It kinda sounds like them too.

Bill Cosby is speaking at my school’s 40th anniversary celebration this year and that video just made me really excited for it.

Kind of not really helping the debate much here, but I knew a guy who had Tourette’s and I noticed that whenever he had a verbal tic (not very often, he mostly had facial tics) his voice sounded really odd. Her’s does too, it almost sounds like she has a really sore throat. I wonder why that is?
Also, when she shouted “sex” while they were just sitting there I loled. You can’t deny it, Tourette’s is both sad and hilarious.

Seriously. I stopped having a celebrity crush on him after hearing about that.
