Gabe! I just found out today. I am going to miss you! I started reading this site in 2008 and it is still one of my favorites. I don’t post much, but this is the nicest online community I’ve ever been part of and I think a lot of that is owed to you. Best of luck!!!
I watched this on Hulu and it seems like The Voice sketch was excised from the full episode. Because God forbid we hear a song someone owns the rights to I guess?
I got pretty excited about Qyburn. I actually thought revealing Barristan up front instead of doing the “Arstan Whitebeard” ruse was a good way to go, as opposed to trying to remind the audience “hey remember him? from season one?” all the way out in season 4 or whatever. I’m just so happy it’s back!!
I am still laughing about the tiny snippet of the “Dirty Ducks” song in Bob’s Burgers. That and Bob’s talk with his father in law about his balloon fetish were my favorite parts.
That cat with the tongue problem has insanely beautiful green eyes, I can’t even handle it!
Where is this Special Place in Hell located in relation to the place for “People Who Waste Good Scotch?”
I try very hard to avoid reading it for the most part!
I felt the same way, maybe because I’ve seen legions of neckbearded internet MRA’s wield the word “cunt” so gleefully over the years?
Like, I see what they were trying to do, in that it’s supposed to be inherently absurd that we would call an adorable, sweet 9 year old girl a “cunt” but at the same time I saw people on Jezebel (ugh) complaining about this 9 year old’s “lack of humility” and it rubbed me the wrong way, and now I can envision a scenario where reporters want this 9 year old girl’s “reaction” to being called a word that she shouldn’t have to hear for a good long while. The joke was a flop, and reactions to it on both sides are exhausting.
This TED thing has no bottom, I’m telling you. I just keep finding worse ones.
Also David Blaine. I promise I’ll stop replying to myself now.
Oh I see that Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat Pray Love has done one, just for starters!
I will bet money that there are more obnoxious TED talks than this one.
YES and now I’ve fallen down the K Hole of watching the weird Little Women anime from the 80s to see if Beth died in that version or not because I can’t remember. Beth!!!!
I’m surprised by how not different this is from any of the Brooke Candy videos I’ve seen
for what it’s worth I heard it was an amicable split? why do I know so much about this?
I would go. I missed my chance to go to The Fashion Cafe after all.
the fox video was a little too CHAOS REIGNS for me
I’m just stopping by to go bananas about that SARK reference, I worked at a day spa that briefly sold her books and we would all read them like “???????” and “!!!!!!!!”
I had an extremely productive day today where I got all my annoying errands done super early (special lightbulbs that can only be obtained at the hardware store! picking up my prescription! paying excise tax from 2009 on a car I no longer own in order to renew my driver’s license!) then went to a job interview for a job I don’t think I want, but discovered that’s a pretty good way to workshop your interview answers (I think I finally solved how to answer that “what’s your greatest weakness?” question we all hate, you guys!)
Then I wandered around Target like a zombie buying toiletries until it was time to meet my husband and go grocery shopping and now I’m commenting on Videogum!
I hope everything said and done on this show was prefixed with “this is how we xxxxxx in West Virginia!” like how the previews made it appear.
Perez used the same slur on Will.i.Am at the time so I don’t even know what’s what anymore.
One good thing to come out of all this was reading The Awl’s roundup of links to old clips and interviews of the real Elizabeth Taylor, reminding me that she was charismatic and fun, and not all dead behind the eyes.
