Man. This sucks. I know I was only a lurker and occasional poster of gifs a few years back, but my life was all about this site during those formative end of college years. I can honestly say this blog is like no other blog on the internet and it’s due to Gabe and Kelly and Scott and Lindsey and the Monsters. Oh you monsters. Some of the funniest, kindest, goofiest people I’ve never met. Goodbye Monsters. Goodbye Videogum. I hardly knew ye, yet this is the saddest day I’ve had in a while.
I’m not a regular commenter and, honestly, I fell off the Videogum train for a while after moving and starting a new job and whatnot, but I’m very very sad that this site is…doing what it’s doing (I can’t bring myself to say “dying” or “going away.) But, I am happy that this WOMAT was chosen to get reposted because I’m almost positive it is the post that brought me to this site that gave me so much of my pop culture critical eye and a lot of my current speech patterns for jokes. I am so sad I never go to have a connection with the community here, but I will miss laughing with you guys from afar.

Last gif, I promise
So many money maker mikes
This is in no way condoning what Daniel Tosh said. It was totally gross and making fun of rape in such a blase manner falls strictly under the header of “One of the worst things you can do in front of large groups of people.”
However, standing up and yelling out at a club is not how you start a conversation about the nature of rape jokes. Yelling at someone with a mic is a no-win situation. The best way to deal with a comedian who is saying things you do not agree with is to leave quietly. Maybe even ask the owner of the club for comedian’s manager’s contact information so you can write a letter or call saying “I was displeased with this and I would like my money back.” Even if you don’t get the money back, the likelihood is higher that the performer will think more about the response beyond the quick comeback that is probably going to be met by laughs and cheers.
Is there really such as thing as “Geek Culture” anymore? Like, some of the highest grossing films are about Superheroes and Wizards and Vampires and Wars in the Stars.
Can’t we just call it “culture” now?
Too bad M.A.S.H was already a show.
OMN! (Oh My Norman). I think and know i am definitely seeing this movie. Dan Byrd from COUGARTOWN! Emily Van Camp from EVERWOOD! Two very good shows! Plus #teenproblems are my favorite problems because you know they are going to be fixed because of growing up.
I’m a failure
Uh. This was supposed to be a reply to Patrick.
Mine was not a flawless comment. It was very flawed.
So, I’ve taken two film classes (“Oh, very cool.” – you guys) where the instructor made us watch this film. So, really, this is a flawless comment for me.
The first time I read this, I thought it said “Life without Videogum sure blows” and I was like “Yep. I bet it would.”
I know we all love Community around here, but I think its opening titles are quite inventive.
How has no one mentioned Archer yet? That opening title sequence gets me entirely ready for that show.
Basically, I’m really excited it’s coming back Thursday
I always thought Regis would outlast LIVE! Kelly. Eh, I guess it turns out Regis was the weakest Link, goodbye.
Someone needs to get off of his boo-hoo-hoo suede shoes.
