Find Me On:
I love that this is suddenly news again. Sadly, I think it’s mostly the Patriots hoping that if they re-enact the news from a past Super Bowl victory, people will think they won again.
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by maplessness.
Did anyone figure out why James is crying?
It is about Heigl imitating the scene from the new Star Trek that caused her to walk out in a rage.
My only joke relies on a spoiler, so I’m not sure what to do…
I don’t get the sense that he is really the “leader” type.
While it is wonderful to find out that we aren’t going to drown in a new flood age as many of us suspected in the last few weeks, my Monday crushed this Tuesday in near-despair. I do freelance work on top of my main job, and took Monday to do that, so my Monday was: walk with my girlfriend to the cafe she works at, read till 9 am, then take out my computer and work all day, briefly get interrupted by friends, find myself more focussed than at the office, enjoy the work more, and get served free coffee all day. Now I am back to an office that sucks hope, and a job that I can’t care for. So, yes, sleeping at the wheel, dreaming of ways to make it so I can work from home and actually make enough money.
While I appreciate the effort, I do not think that word means what you think it means:
1: to turn (as a dish or vessel) upside down usually to cover something : cover or engulf completely with usually disastrous effect
2: to overcome in thought or feeling : overwhelm
I happily participate in the making of this PSA.
I hate young people. This makes me want to change my avatar back to a grumpy old man.
Yeah, Gabe is either really grumpy, or doesn’t have enough to be grumpy about.
Do you have any idea how long it has been since I last remembered to be sad because Mitch Hedberg is dead?
Thanks for ruining that streak of non-sadness…
I thought recent theorier tended towards interbreeding?
“So, British Scientist Woman, what is the aim of your research?”
“One minute. Elliott, could you please go outside and practice weeding my garden with your teeth skills again? [turning back to interviewer] That is how I believe the Neanderthals tended their crops.”
“For years, my career had plateaued at a place where I just wasn’t satisfied, and I didn’t see a place I could raise it to, no matter my effort. At the same time, my university continued giving me graduate students who I just couldn’t stand. So mostly, now, my aim is to see how much Elliott is willing to embarrass himself if he believes some new, absurd theory I made up after my fourth glass of wine before bed.”
My dad was DARE officer and my mom taught me how to sell drugs.
He’s really into sports. They call him jock, shove him in cabinets, and tell him he has no friends.
His laughter amongst their misery is the greatest. And his sighing, content, “I know” when they tell him they hate him is pretty much how hope I feel when I quit my job and leave absurd amounts of work just dangling.
Please, can we have notice when videos contain ear-damaging high-pitched shrieking?
1) I’m sorry to hear that. I recommend not trying to figure out a reason and just acknowledge it and sit with it. Searching for the reason can be anxiety-inducing and make it all worse. I’m feeling okay myself, but I know that in a couple hours I won’t be. I am obsessing over the new National album and the line “Every day I start so great and then the sunlight dims” because that is basically how my depression works.
2. How hot is it?
3. I love that speech and was so pleased to discover its beginnings in Infinite Jest. I also am proud that a former professor I introduced it to now uses it in class, after initially scoffing at the concept.
4. So I’ve heard. I love Vermont weather, even when it is dire.
5. I like thinking of it that way and may share this with my girlfriend tonight if I remember.
6. Oh man, I feel like you might be missing out. I mean, people have probably already said this, but have you seen Moon? How about Confessions of a Dangerous Mind?
Oh man. Oh man oh man. All I can think about is what kind of creature their PR person is if he thinks all these things are awesome ideas.
I don’t know. I got the feeling that Maron was actually fighting whereas Michael Ian Black was doing the whole “Umm…this guy is mad and I’m not, but getting him more worked up will be wicked funny.” So sure, awkward for everyone in the elevator, but awesome for standing outside a bar while your friends watch.
I’m glad you’re comfortable with talking about it here. You should be. I’ve gone through a bunch of phases with religion: raised strict Catholic, and actually believed pretty strongly for a while, but eventually being forced to Church every Sunday, and seeing little of Jesus’ preachings reflected in my parents’ behavior, fell away hard and eventually became that “fuck Christianity” angry teen, who then learned about Buddhism and decided that was cool and perfect. Eventually, I learned that was dumb too and remembered that every religion has its hardliners and problems and hatred and violence, which was actually really great to realize because it freed all the good up too. Somewhere in that, a high school teacher I had (went to Catholic high school) who had a major influence on my in general in school, worked his way back into my brain much later in life (and I realize that I miss the guy). Simply put, he was the greatest Christian I’ve ever met. You want someone who was plain a warm, loving, funny, open human, this man was all of that and more. His faith was strong enough that he really believed he had met an incarnation of Jesus once (a great story, honestly), and all that faith led him to honestly, intelligently, try to follow in Jesus’ path, not the church.
So basically, right now I’m at the place where I honestly don’t care if there is a god or not, whatever gets people through and gets them treating people right.
Can we start pronouncing the J in his name with a hard G?
Why are people bothering to correct you about how you pronounce Nutella? Shouldn’t your mouths be too clogged with eating it to correct pronouncations?
You remember a war was fought over gifs, right?
