THIS, A HUNDRED TIMES THIS. “The Thing” is probably one of my top five movies, and I hate scary movies! But it’s so good! And now it looks like “Resident Evil: Antarctica.”

And April 2011? Did I miss something?

Guys, I made you something. This is the best I could do, Gabe. Two out of three? Eh, that ain’t bad.

“Take Shelter” looks really good, but I can’t shake the thought that it makes me think of some bizarre “Sling Blade”/”Inception” crossover.

This just makes me very happy.

I feel like this is a very subtle .gif and it keeps blinking when I’m not looking and I am very scared.

“The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.”

I think about that a lot.

I can’t be the only one that thinks “No Pay, No Play” sounds like a Velvet Underground demo.

The Situation came to a bar in my town. I guess the owner knew his cousin or something? Anyways, you could do body shots off The Situation for $50. That’s a lot of money! Apparently he got really drunk and started shouting, “NONE OF THESE GIRLS ARE HOT.”

And then he threw up.

Well, I was trying to be professional. In most other casual social situations, I barf in faces quite often.

Barf. I tried to leave an image of Louie Anderson’s IMDb page, because under the “trivia” section, I shit you not, it says “enjoys butter.”

In high school, I had a job interview at Journeys (yes, the shoe store in the mall that is like Hot Topic for your feet). In the interview, the manager asked me why I didn’t like my current job. I don’t really remember how I replied, but I do remember that at some point I was gathering my thoughts and said “Well, It’s just really…” and let the really linger while I searched for the right word. The manager, a salaried individual who has some kind of responsibility, even if it is just for a store that specializes in multi-colored slip-on shoes, tried to finish the sentence for me. “Gay? Were you going to say gay?”

“No, I wasn’t going to say gay, I was just trying to think of the right word.”

“Aw, ok man. You can say gay, dude. Fag, whatever. I just want you to be real with me.”

After that I made a conscious attempt to ween the words fag and retard out of my vocabulary. Something about the fact that a grown ass man wanting me to keep it “real” by using a derogatory slang word really bummed me out about this world, as if liberal use of fag is supposed to be the status quo and is something to just be accepted. As if the abuse and pain of a whole group of HUMAN BEINGS was something that can just be shrugged off for the use of someone who knows nothing about anything about any kind of suffering because he’s straight, white, and has cash to blow on multi-colored slip-on shoes.

That said, I’ll agree with Clown Coffee’s remarks that this scene isn’t really that well acted or in my opinion, even produced. But I think it’s an important scene in that it is accessible and not condescending to the viewer. When the scene hits a beautiful moment when he says, “I talk about gay sex with you guys more than my gay friends.” It’s a nice discussion, and it is a rare moment for television. I just wish it wasn’t buried on cable where I can’t currently watch it. It doesn’t damn one side or the other, which is kind of nice. Louie’s thoughtful expression at the end is endlessly satisfying.

That said, even as a straight man, I would like to get a picture of Nick Dipalo giving the a-ok sign stamped on my dick. AM I RIGHT LADIES?
