The fact that Gabe continued to refer to him as David O’Russell, not David O. Russell, made him more loveable in my eyes and therefore less guilty.

Guys, I think you missed the obvious…

i fall into the did not like camp. i felt the whole thing was masturbatory. from the play within a play stuff and the burning house to the over 2 hour running time it all seemed way too self indulgent. having said that, i am really looking forward to frank or francis, which is basically about what i’m doing now.

i really hope they meet back by 9:30. i mean they made it their beeswax to.

it’s clear that he-man does not support the legalization of marriage between an arch enemy and his feline “companion”.

as fun (relatively speaking) as this ep was, it made me think of when january jones hosted. remember that guys!?! YEESH!

shy ronnie is not impressed.

 +14Posted on Oct 28th, 2010 | re: Richard Heene Would Like To Remind You That He Is Insane (70 comments)

so i’m considering pitching a reality show starring balloon boy and hiccup girl titled, “don’t burst my bubble (with that gun you were going to shoot me with)”. thoughts?

 +4Posted on Oct 25th, 2010 | re: Saturday Night Live: Emma Stone And Kings Of Leon (105 comments)

also it seems that the digital shorts are, dare i say it, too weird (aka not funny?)? all in all though it seems like samberg is barely a cast member anymore.

and the french kids sketch made me uncomfortable. like i should be getting what this is making fun of but i’m not. oh well.

needless to say, Titanic II is going to make Titanic look like the actual Titanic.

 +15Posted on Jun 24th, 2010 | re: Jeremy London Probably Not Kidnapped! Jeremy London Racist Drug Addict! (146 comments)

as videogum’s expert on being black, i will say this. the thought of a crime such as the one jeremy alleges was done to him sounds more believable when the criminals are black. similar to years ago when susan smith drove her two kids into a body of water and blamed it on a general description of a black guy. in their minds, the obvious response to this would be “of course it happened, a crazy black guy did it!” that inherent thought, does, in my opinion, make them racist.

I think we can all assume that the reason Gabe wasn’t able to watch TNTV was because he was OBVIOUSLY at the NFL Draft cheering on his favorite sportsball team.

This episode clearly built the way for the newest LOST spin off starring Desmond and Charlie called, “Get Him to the Looking Glass Station”

i’m not trying to sound like ass dan up in here or anything (ahhh yeah!) but did anyone else notice martin/dateline clearly messed up one of the icp lyrics in the beginning? on the screen it says “from doom and either way bass boom” and any well respecting member of team juggalo who hasn’t lost his hearing from constant faygo showers should know it says “from doom to 808 bass boom”.

What I still don’t get is that how a person, a so called MAN, who screwed over two men (Letterman and Carson) to get where he wants can still come groveling back to the network that fired him, TWICE. And then come crawling back for his own selfish, egotistical, “every-man persona” needs. FOR SHAME JAY, FOR SHAME.
