There is a great ad for Comcast’s Triple Play service right underneath this box where I am writing this comment in support of Gabe’s principle (you have to pay for things of value) but also Kelly’s skepticism at extorting someone to pay for cable.

That is a bad bad theory.

Fuck the RG hate. He was the funniest thing about the Golden Globes this year and overall one of the best comedic minds of the last 10 years.

What they have in common: both are demoralizing and symbolic of good things being hard to sustain in this rotten world.

what the fuck happened to Gabe + Max like the internet? I’ve come to Videogum after Friday’s prayers for weeks and seen nothing. It’s enough for me to question Allah’s will.

Someone bet someone else “Hey, I bet you can’t make a worse movie than Tim Barton based off the idea of Planet of the Apes.” And the bet was taken.

Any non-federal elections can be held on a day that the state/city/municipal government chooses, so you will have many city council elections in the Spring, for example. It could also be a primary.

Why the fuck is no one pointing out that he played a pilot in Look Who’s Talking? But he wasn’t just playing. He actually flew a plane.

I know exactly where and what you are talking about. EXACTLY. But no, I’m not Josh Radnor.

Finally an event for people that love to laugh and have fun.

This is near the home of the Richard Nixon. Very appropriate, especially to those who have read Nixonland.

This is how I danced to Thom Yorke when I saw him at Coachella. there’s something universal about this.

Why is that hipster girl dancing with the goat? is that going to be the new “thing” now? I was just getting used to the cheeseburger kittens…

Then ends with Dan saying “we all have it tough.” How right you were Dan.

Thank you for this.

Such a wonderful show, with amazing moments, multi-episode story arcs, multi-season character developments, etc.

I watched the show on its original run getting what I could out of it. Upon a second or third run through I still under appreciated the early seasons because they’re slower and smaller (no musical chairs with David, Darlene, new Becky, etc.). Then when I became a man I learned to value episodes like the one where the audience APPLAUDS because Roseanne gets a job. She then finds out she’s unqualified, yet still comes home to find a surprise congratulations party that her and Dan subsequently vacate by yelling at each other, capped by her throwing himself into his arms at the frustration of being unemployed.

I cannot think of another show that could so wonderfully capture (and build an episode around) that kind of story.
