Well, we made it. We made it to not quite the end of the day, but almost the end of the day. Even though it might not have seemed like it sometimes, I always knew that we would. To celebrate, why not take a GIF down @memorylane? Hmmm? And watch some GIFs from some stuff that we talked about during the week? HMMMM? There are GIFs of that baby falling down from the beginning of the week! Remember her? Come on, let’s go!
- Videogum Movie Club Reminder: Hey, let’s all go see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this weekend! Okay?
- Have you watched the red-band trailer for Nymphomaniac? It is very, very NSFW. And it is really, ah, something. Watch it privately! -/Film
- Speaking of things that are NSFW, will someone please talk to Courtney Stodden? It seems like Courtney Stodden really needs someone to talk to. I wold do it, but we live pretty far away from each other. -Dlisted
- Girls season three trailer, you guys. -HBO
- Ellen‘s “Mad Men Without Smoking” is enjoyable, and much healthier than the alternative. -Uproxx
- Oh, speaking of things from talk shows, (all of my segues are smooth and professional) Jimmy Kimmel did another installment of “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves” and it’s maybe my favorite installment yet! -Pajiba
- And finally, Zach Braff, photobombing an innocent, newly married couple. -DeathAndTaxes
My goodness. How? I don’t even — wha? HOW DO CHILDREN KNOW HOW TO BE SO SWEET, AND THEN ACCOMPLISH BEING SO SWEET? It is almost too much. (Via Uproxx.)
It’s Friday, and you know what that means! We get two days to ourselves that will come and go very quickly, making clearer the ever-increasing speed at which our entire lives are passing us by! Also: MOVIE TRAILERS! We’ve got one about the West Memphis Three, one about a guy dancing, and them some other ones! Let’s go watch them!
Documenting public marriage proposals in an effort to have there be fewer of them is something I am passionate about, but in my one or two years of work on the subject I’m not sure that I’ve come across one that is less within my grasp of understanding than this one. It’s a rap battle public marriage proposal, which contains all of the red flag words, for sure, but also it…might not be that bad? For the people involved? I don’t know! I feel a little unable to judge because everything that happens in this video is VERY much outside of things that I understand. Both participants of the proposal are also participants in the rap battle (I think), and the girl throws sandwiches? Also everyone is white, and it seems like maybe they are at a school? That couldn’t be, though. I have to imagine that they aren’t at a school, that wouldn’t make any sense. When the man rap proposes (RAP PROPOSES) he says something about her sagging boobs? I might have misheard that, he has a British accent. I don’t know. YOU TELL ME, ‘CAUSE I DON’T KNOW!
I didn’t see Parks and Recreation last night and I also missed Parenthood, so PLEASE don’t tell me if Kristina Braverman won her election. I know Leslie Knope didn’t win her election last week and, TBH, it’s not looking good for Kristina either, and I’m not sure I can take both of my NBC blonde ladies losing elections within the same week. Speaking of none of that: Coach. Hey, let’s talk about him! New Girl has pretty much fully brought him into the group, this week sending him on a basketball date with Cece, during which he got to show his true Coach — someone who texts his mom on a basketball date and feels a bit unsure after the ending of his last relationship. It was basically the same journey he made in the strip club episode, with the dynamic between him and the weird, vulnerable friends feeling a bit off until he, too, revealed that he is a bit weird and vulnerable. I know that some are unsure, but I do think that the addition of Coach will continue to mean good things, and a less worn-out feeling with the other characters. Right? I mean, it’s television, who cares, but — right? This episode was very funny. Jess saying that she didn’t understand Schmidt’s job but that it seemed to pay him well was A+. Winston’s pudding cup and bologna conversation was A+. GOOD EP. What else should we talk about? The League ended, and Aziz and Lizzy were there! I am normally not the biggest fan of The League, because it makes me uncomfortable and I am very delicate, but I thought the season finale was pretty good! Aziz’s role was just classic an Aziz role, and it is always nice to see Lizzy Caplan in anything. Okay next? Haha. Chelsea Peretti is very good on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I think the amount of Chelsea Peretti we get is probably fine, but maybe we could use a little more? She’s goooooood! I like that show! It’s enjoyable! Is the reason why you guys stopped posting GIFs in the comments because I just say that I like every show, and that’s kind of boring? Well. TOUGH! BECAUSE I DO! LIKE THEM ALL, PRETTY MUCH! I even have been liking The Mindy Project lately. LAUGHING OUT LOUD sometimes at it, even. (Although, the crowd that was convinced that she and her coworkers were racists did turn around VERY quickly when she said the thing about the mobile healthcare van.) And also Comedy Bang Bang is a fucking dream and I love it so much, please watch it if you are not watching it. What do you think? Do you hate Coach? Tell me what you think, if you want to!
Hey! I love holiday movies! And by “holiday” I mean mostly Christmas! Sorry to pull away that veil so quickly, but I don’t think I’ve seen many (read: any?) Hanukkah movies for adults, but if there are any I’d love to watch, because I am open-minded, inclusive, and reasonable! Our SpooOOooOOoky Movie Club in November was such a hit (it was a hit, right?) (moving on under the assumption that it was not only a hit, but a BIG hit) that I thought, hey, why not do it again in December? But instead of scary movies, why not do it with Christmas movies, since that would make more sense? So, here we are: the Videogum Holiday Movie Club. This will work just like the SpooOooOoky Movie Club — you guys will let us know which holiday movies are your favorites (or the ones that you hate the most) (either way!) (do you!), we will choose whichever ones seem to have the most interest, and then we’ll all watch one a week together throughout the month of December. (We’ll discuss them on Thursdays, except for the final one, which we will discuss on Wednesday, December 25th.) Does that sound good? I hope it sounds good, or at least fine. So, what do you think? What holiday movies do you like? Gary Marshall’s New Year’s Eve? Jingle All the Way? Am I close? Tell meeee.
