Find Me On:
Haha, I don’t even care that I didn’t log in with my Facebook. I just wanted to post Kate Beaton’s comics.
I’m going to echo previous posters and say Top Gun. Because have you seen Kate Beaton’s Top Gun comics? They are a thing of beauty.
Yes! And ties are decided by lip sync battles!
Well, she WAS on the Bill Engvall Show…(thanks IMDB!)
Oh man, I’m bummed that this post is a few days old, because no one is going to see this now! But I am compelled to overshare anyway. I attended the same university that Emma Watson also (briefly!) attended, and I always had the vague hope that I would see her from afar. (I’m from New York…if you dare even ironically approach a celebrity, your NY driver’s license is revoked.)
So anyway, one day…when I was working at the university’s writing center, Emma Watson came in for an appointment! The coordinator saw my wide, starstruck eyes and huge grin, immediately marked me as a big Harry Potter fan, and promptly assigned Emma to work with someone else. But still! She sat right behind me. She is impossibly tiny and gorgeous in person and we breathed the same air for like 25 minutes.
I’ll…see myself out.
I had to Google B4-4, and I’m so glad I did. I love that they went on to reform under the name RyanDan!
Oh man, so sad.
So many memories: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEKWZk16N_w
Based off of the MTV faux-boy band (to turn real-ish boy band) 2gether, a bunch of my friends and I filmed our own all-girl version of the movie. I’ve forgotten the name of our band, but I do remember that my role was V, the band’s alcoholic manager who only wore leopard print. We were, like, 12 years old at the time.
Seriously! How do people make friends? This is my struggle, having recently moved.
To make your story even creepier: crows can remember people’s faces, particularly people who they’ve deemed threatening. According to Discovery, “a single crow’s bad experience with a particular human can spread information about this individual throughout entire crow communities.”
So for your sake, I hope you either never clapped at them, or that you now live in an area bereft of crows!
I like your style.
Dressing your baby as Navi? Those parents are throwing mad shade at their kid.
I didn’t even know there was more than one board game! I totally meant the Risk-esque one, which I highly recommend. (Be the Greyjoys.)
Can we talk about the board game?? I feel that House Greyjoy has an unfair advantage in starting on the Iron Islands. But then again, who wants to be the Greyjoys? So maybe it balances out.
In my experience, it’s WAY harder to write well about things that are good and enjoyable, and usually not half as fun to read. But thank you, Gabe, for providing a space to discuss GoT. It’s just so great! Love Tyrion, love Brienne, love Sansa, love Varys. Love everyone.
I do find myself a bit annoyed with Dany’s constant pronouncements of raining down fire and brimstone (literally) on anyone who slights her. Bitch, your khalasar consists of babies and old people and your dragons are the size of housecats. Maybe cool down on the threats until you can back ‘em up? I’m actually a bit of a Dany stan, from reading the books, and I don’t like feeling this way!
Kelly and I have something in common!!
That’s just in regards to the Topsy Tail part…as I both complained about it and did not look cute.
ME TOO! He was the dangerous bad-boy turtle!
Did anyone else’s mom force them to submit to the terrors of Topsy Tail? No? Well, this video made me sympathy wince. Doing shit to your hair hurts!
No T, no shade, hunty.
Really though, musical theater/movie adaptations of musical theater would be much improved by the addition of drag queens. (Not just sayin’ that ’cause Jujubee’s my icon.)
I’m gagging on just the imagined eleganza!
Watching MST3K together was my first date with my boyfriend, because we are both emotionally-closed off nerds. We’ve been together almost 5 years and in that time have spoken almost exclusively in MST3K quotes.
You’re just jealous of my dune buggy!
I’m really grateful you led into this story by bringing up Long Island Medium. While I’ve never actually watched it, I am from LI (also known as “Strong Island,” to preteen girls in the early ’90s) and an acquaintance of mine is going to be on it! I think it’s to talk to her dead grandpa, though.
More on topic: I’m such a scaredy-cat that I’m literally just scared by stuff filmed in night vision. So I don’t think I’ll be watching this, even if it is just people freaking out alone in empty houses.
Hooray! I will, right now!
