Is that a ham-fisted ‘November Rain’ reference I see at 3:28…?
And yes, I really DID mean to type “Kelly car bring the laffz”.
Haha, you will definitely be missed, Gabe. You brought an intellectualism and a class (?) to Videogum that is quite rare in the snark-filled wasteland that is the blogosphere.
Not that Kelly isn’t hilarious, mind you; she’s great! She car really bring the laffz! It seemed a little desperate that she kept turning up to work in spite of having been fired all of those times, TBH, but wuttayagunnado *shrugs*
Stephen King is a TERRIBLE writer… I sat down and tried to read ‘Under the Dome’ a few months ago. I managed to slog through until I hit this passage:
“His mother’s voice in his head: ‘Don’t let yourself get out of control, honey.’ She was dead and still wouldn’t stop giving advice. ‘Teach her a lesson, but make it a little one.’
And he really might have managed to do that, but then her robe came open and she was naked underneath it. He could see the dark patch of hair over her breeding-farm, her goddamn itchy breeding-farm that was all the fucking trouble, when you got right down to it those farms were all the fucking trouble in the world, and his head was throbbing, thudding, whamming, smashing, splitting.”
Oh, brother. Cheque, please.
Apparently they don’t teach you what “CGI” stands for in Kung Fu school…
Except that I’m pretty sure I remember Courtney Stodden going on at length about how she was going to do Playboy as soon as she was of-age, and Playboy issuing a formal statement essentially saying “Uh, thanks, but no thanks. We prefer our naked skanks less trashy.” And I was all, like *Tim Allen voice* “rrruuuuuuhhhhh? Didn’t Playboy let Lindsay Lohan, International Escort do a spread?”
Anyone else think that this might just be a big ol’ Jon Hamm-style goof on the paparazzo?
I’ve been cutting a corporate video for a guy who makes his living giving talks on obesity, kind of like a Tony Robbins for overweight people. He’s one of our country’s foremost Scienceticians of Obesity.
I’m a scrawny little guy who’s never really struggled with his weight, and, I admit, I’ve got my hangups with overweight people. It seems like there’s far too much of the whole “victim mentality” thing going around when it comes to obesity; obesity is a serious problem, with serious consequences to your health, and the the healthcare system! Maybe just cut down on the Baconators! I know that not eating Baconators isn’t your absolute favourite thing to do, but give it a shot! You might like it!
ANYway, it’s been really quite interesting to listen to this guy talk. I can’t say that I’ve 100% flipped my position on the subject, but I definitely have a new perspective on things; certainly a lot more empathy for what overweight people go through.
Wooooooops! That should have been in reply to Simon Spidermonk!
Up here in Canada, we somehow managed to elect the Canadian version of Mitt Romney into a majority government a couple of years back (and when I say “we”, I mean 39% of the population voted for him — Democracy in action, folks!). He wasted no time throwing money at super-prisons and ridiculously expensive fighter jets, dismantling and de-funding the departments of anyone who dared disagree with him, and generally setting our country back about 50 years. Deeply disturbing right-wing lunacy isn’t just confined to America, unfortunately…
*terrible Korean accent*
“I see you’ve prayed Knifeee-Spoonee before.”

“Thet’s noht a fayke-plestic-nerd-clohws-whoile-roiding-an-imaginary-hohrse.”
Based on this, I’m guessing that Clint Eastwood was the head writer of the last 15 Academy Awards…
He’s wearing our generation’s MC Hammer pants.
Hey, nerds, what’s up? No particularly hilarious quips to make, just wanted to offer up a kuhdoooz to one miss Kelly Conaboy. Not for anything to do with this post, really; this just happened to be where I landed. I was a little skeptical of her when she first signed on, but she’s really grown on me. Keep it up, Kelly! You’re great!
Anyway, that’s about it. Just thought I’d throw a, y’know, a positive comment out there. You kids can go back to being needlessly angry about things which have no bearing on your day-to-day existences and trying SOOOOO HARD to one up each other with your clever wisecracks, now!
“Hey, would you like to watch a washed up pop singer shill for some large corporation before you and I discuss terrible fake-rap videos?”
Who’s the lady in the pic towards the end of the post? Is she the star of the new reboot of that porno about Sarah Palin…? “Nailin’ Pailin: ORIGINS”…?
Have you guys read the story of Xenu? It’s HILARIOUS!!!
This dude Xenu, ruler of the galaxy or whatever, was facing revolution by the 178 billion people in the galaxy or wherever, so he summoned them together under the guise of “income tax inspections”, paralyzed them, put them all aboard a (presumably hilariously oversized) space plane that looked almost identical to an old Douglas DC-8, shipped them off to planet Teegack (now called “Earth”), dropped them off around the craters of several volcanoes, and DETONATED HYDROGEN BOMBS that had been placed there at some time in the past, killing MOST of them! Not all of them, because, of course, it’s perfectly reasonable that one could survive A HYDROGEN BOMB DETONATION ON THE SIDE OF A VOLCANO
Haha WHERE DO I SIGN UP
“…being the guy who is trying to find some way to deconstruct or debase or defame the guy who is having the time of his life…”
Super confused, y’all. Isn’t this the whole point of Videogum…? Am I doing it wrong…?
Not to be all Johnny Grammar Police over here, but I DID go to college, so I think I can recognize a double-negative when I hear one… It’s all quite subversive, really; the congregation is cheering the fact that all homos will, in fact, be going to heaven.
BOOM. Where’s my red square of grammar protest?
“Haha this new meat that I have definitely never tried sure tastes great! AS LONG AS THERE ARE NO GAY PEOPLE AROUND, AMIRIGHT!?!?!”
Huh, I’ve always wondered what would happen if my local lacrosse team started up a heavy metal band…
Uh, I am seriously worried about me, you guys. I work in the TV industry… According to the numbers, I am already dead!!!!!!!
It’s good to see that Tila Tequila has found gainful employment!
