“i made an account just so i could post that who ever made this whole post obviously would vote for Palin.”
#1) I loved this movie when it came out, but also I was a 16 year old who had a weird crush on Kevin Spacey. I was a dramatic theater kid who thought DEEP THOUGHTS all the time. I loved Kevin Spacey so much that I gave him the highest honor: including his last name in my AIM screen name.
That said, everything Gabe wrote about American Beauty is completely accurate.
#2) I know I’m not a regular commenter, but I’ve read this site almost every day since I discovered it a few months after it launched. I was bedridden from a pretty terrible car accident and had nothing to do but browse the internet all day long. I clicked a link that took me to Gabe’s Live Vlog and from there read every single post. It sounds cliche, but Videogum helped me through a really rough time. Once the site grew and had such a variety of witty, funny and kind monsters I never considered it could end. There are lots of you that I feel like I know, even if we’ve never spoken. I’m really sad that it’s over. ))((
Last year at some point I wrote a comment that Joel was the best person in the whole family. I never thought for a second I would sympathize with Julia over him. I just don’t understand why they’re trying to make me hate him.
Also, Kristina needs to take a break.
I really enjoyed Ron’s excitement for his rectangle.
Also, while I agree the end of New Girl reallllly stretched my suspension of disbelief, I really loved the episode because I am exactly like Jess on my birthday and I thought I was the only one.
The Target by my house has an entire wall of halloween costumes for pets. My trip for toilet paper last night turned into an hour of me going through everything and trying to determine if I could live with forcing my cat to walk around with a mini jockey and saddle on his back, or angel wings, or a mohawk. At the time I decided I couldn’t but those dogs are the best and I might have to go back.
Man I loved the last scene of the episode so much. I too thought we were gearing up for a slow season, but when Hank closed the garage door I screamed OH SHIT to my bf who is not nearly as invested and told me I was a weirdo because apparently I was talking to the TV for most of the episode.
When Walt started the “If you really don’t know me” line I thought for sure he was going to make some weak plea, go into how it was “for family” and how he didn’t know how it got to the point it did. The “tread lightly” line was perfect. Perfect.
For #3, I think it’s a sign of how cocky Walt is, even though he’s “out” he still thinks of himself as HBIC. I think he’s always going to assume that Lydia is terrified of him, I don’t think he’s figured out that Lydia’s thing is to only be terrified when there’s a gun pointing directly at her face.
Question Mark Week? Where every sentence ends like a question? So basically Teenager Week?
Stark Week. Where we finally catch up on GoT even though the internet has spoiled everything we haven’t seen yet.
I haven’t read that one since it was new! Looks like I have another busy day ahead of adjusting myself so no one can see my computer screen at work.
That is literally what I did at work yesterday. The last one I read last night was the one for The Butterfly Effect. I think my subconscious traveled to the future and wanted me to enjoy this article as much as possible and remind me that this exists:
My apartment flooded a few days ago when my upstairs neighbor’s water heater burst while he was out of town, so I’m dealing with throwing out a lot of stuff and am not sure if I’ll be able to stay in my apartment depending on the water damage. I’m pretty stressed about it, my apartment is about $100 cheaper a month than my neighbors because I moved in right before they started remodeling, so if they ask me to switch apartments I won’t be able to afford it.
My poor cat is pretty traumatized, he kept trying to hide under my bed which is where the guys kept trying to suck water from and aimed a bunch of industrial fans at. It took me about an hour to get him out, then I had to trick him into getting in a crate to take to my parents’ house where he’s only allowed in the basement.
I’m trying to stay really positive, everyone keeps telling me how well I’m handling everything. I keep throwing out “At least we’re safe, that’s all that matters” and “I really needed to purge a lot anyway, I haven’t lost anything I can’t replace” but really I’m pretty .
The good news is I’ve been watching Orange is the New Black. I really love it and it reminds me that things could be worse. I also got to explain to my grandmother what Netflix is today after she asked me where she could find a Blockbuster.
I think episode 2 is the worst episode if that helps!
I very much enjoyed the new season. Some of the episodes were not my favorite, but once I got to the Gob episode I was completely hooked and loved the rest.
I’m one of those people who’s been waiting seven years for more, and I was very excited when they announced it was for real happening, but I like to think I wasn’t that annoying about it. I’m just glad my favorite show had a chance for ANUSTART.
“Everybody needs scissors!”
I have now watched every episode of Nathan for You and it is quite possibly the funniest show on TV right now. I really don’t like the other show that Comedy Central paired it with, and I don’t understand why Nathan for You has to follow that dumb show. I’ve introduced three friends to Nathan for You, and each time I say I’m going to show them one episode and each time we end up watching all the episodes. I feel a little conflicted when I watch it, knowing that he is really doing these ridiculous things to these businesses, but they all have the opportunity to say no and for some reason they never do.
The sex offender episode is maybe the craziest thing I have ever seen on TV in my life.
I’ve only seen one episode of Nathan For You so far, but I very much enjoyed it. I watched New Girl on the train on my way to work yesterday and laughed like a crazy person in front of strangers, mostly at Schmidt saying “buttons” and sticking his head in the coffin after saying “I can do this ALL DAY SON!”
On my way home I watched The Mindy Project and I did not like it. I was also surrounded by small children who threw candy at each other and stepped on my foot twice while their mother/babysitter texted and acted like she didn’t know them, but I don’t think my opinion would’ve changed much on The Mindy Project either way. I keep thinking there are parts of the show that I really like, but every week I’m somewhat disappointed. I would watch a show about Danny, but I don’t think I want to watch a show about Mindy anymore.
I watched SNL this week with three friends, and after the Charlie Brown sketch I said “That was the best Larry David impression that could possibly exist.” They all looked at me confused. Each one of them thought it was really Larry David. Either my friends are dumb, or Martin Short is a genius.
I’ve really been enjoying Ben and Kate! I’m torn between my love of Ben and Tommy’s friendship and my love of Lucy Punch.
Joel Graham is definitely the best dad.
Needs more Vincent.
