So nobody here is going to buy the “Stay perfect. Just for me.” t-shirts? We could all wear them on Wednesdays!

Perhaps you can answer this for me, Ms. former Delia*s manager…

Did Delia*s always have storefronts? Because when I was a budding adolescent girl, Delia*s was strictly online/catalogue only (or so I thought). Inquiring inner 13-year-olds want to know.

Maybe People Magazine is thinking about TheGos circa 2006. Which is still crazy because how can you not love this face?

Wait. People think All Good Things is a good movie?

I guess I’ll have to wait it out until The Perks of Being a Wallflower is available on Netflix.

At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was created with hopes that it would go viral and attract negative or ironic attention of the internet masses.

I can almost see this pseudo-intellectual argument, but the usage of the word “deep” is what throws me off. It doesn’t seem like this film aimed to convey a deeper meaning, unless you, of course, derive it in some way.

I just saw it as more of a twist on film noir. Is noir supposed to be intellectual? It’s just all style, isn’t it? I figured that a lot of the peripheral stuff, like the jock reciting Shakespeare, were merely stylistic devices.

Anyway, whatever. There are more important things to discuss here… like… Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s characters run a lot. Like all the time. What is up with THAT.

I am confident that I DID go back and rewatch My So-Called and learned that it WAS as good as I might have thought.

Not completely realistic, sure. I mean… a folk-song writing homeless angel? What? A boy that leans really well? COME ON.

I don’t really see how Outsourced is more racist than some of things on other shows, like the Liz Lemon comment about not being able to get a cab because there’s a soccer game between Pakistan and Greece. And I find it interesting how people ignore the fact that the show makes white Americans look like idiots. I’m not saying that Videogum commenters are ignoring that fact; just critics of the show in general.

I’m also not arguing that the show isn’t culturally offensive; it totally is. The only upside of the show is that it give people of South Asian descent something they can relate to, like the vague head shake, which is really particular and makes me think that the writers at least know some real live South Asians! But jokes like how hard it is to find a hamburger, in MUMBAI no less, makes me think that these writers do not have the pleasure of knowing any real live South Asians. Surely they would consult South Asian friends about the cultural accuracy of their show. The hamburger and beef thing just doesn’t make sense. There are a lot of cow eaters in India, especially in Mumbai.

I was hoping Outsourced could be something good for American South Asians, especially after the birth of M. Night, which even the likes of Mindy Kaling, Aziz Ansari and Maulik Pancholy can’t even cancel out. Unfortunately, the writing is super lazy and I can’t believe the movie has such a high rating on Netflix?

6 minutes at Bedford Ave is actually 12 minutes in real time.

Yea, like the Poptart place in Times Square. Scary!

Out of all the brothers of famous people, he is the least annoying.

“Weiiiiiiiiner flaaaaaaaavor”

Sorry. That is in response to your user icon, which I think is Gavin?

Incidentally, none of this is even related to Nickelodeon.

He was wobbling a little, so it obviously falls down and his crew are all wearing different clothing from before, so I think that suggests that this is reality and not a dream.

But, ok, so, he only wrote the story for Devil so maybe the screenwriter made it into something watchable? Maybe? No?

I feel bad that I want to watch a TS camrip of it because Geoffrey Arend and the guy who played Trey on The OC are in it? Sorry?

Every country has its own favorite Shyamalan movie. He probably read that on Google somewhere, and probably didn’t get the sarcasm or something.

I wonder if this was taken at a BP. If there is rhyme and reason to the world, this photo would have been taken at a BP.
