Find Me On:
one of my favorite parts of kelly’s recaps is you can mouse over the photos and read her hilarious filenames. favorites this week – “ughsocute” and “hahaoopsdead”
i’ve never been a huge ricky gervais fan, and i couldn’t really figure out what rubbed me the wrong way until recently. he has this kind of cheeky fake arrogance onstage and in interviews, that’s supposed to (i think) read as, ‘haha wouldn’t it be hilarious if i actually was this pompous?’
but then recently i saw him doing some goofing around on the set of Curb and he was talking about how terrible it is to film in the nyc subway, how he would never come down into this gross underworld. and it kind of hit me that this guy really IS this pompous. like, SO many people go into the gross subway every day, and that’s kind of a normal thing. we’re all very happy for you that you’ve had such success in television, ricky, but really? you are really THAT much better than the mass transit-er?
maybe that just hit me because i ride the nyc subway, but i guess it just retroactively made a lot of his, ‘haha you suckers paid to see me’ jokes kind of fall into place.
also, that photo, yuck. i’m merely offended that someone thought that would somehow be provocative or even remotely interesting. shouldn’t that be the cover of a lostprophets album or something?
