Find Me On:
I hate those Sesame Street assholes in midtown. Random losers buy some Elmo and Grover costumes, get families to pose for pictures with them, and then they’re like “Hey, how about you pay me now?” That’s why Elmo’s holding a bag in that picture. Fuck tourists, but fuck Elmo too.
Was. He quit the writing staff on 30 Rock and got hired on Community six days later.
Yes, but it’s pleasing to think that Chris Farley’s agent got more money from this than Kevin Farley’s agent got from An American Carol.
According to IMDB, the actress who played Hope has been divorced five times. Maybe she wasn’t acting at all, and they brought her onto the set and just followed her around with cameras while she did her thing. Either way, she’s still been divorced five times. Good luck with life, lady.
To be fair, Gen-X wasn’t a thing until the 90s and people forgot about Thirtysomething once the 90s came around, but otherwise yeah, spot on.
Gawker got it:
I haven’t watched it because Jay Leno.
Fuck it, I’d watch the Balaban show. It’d be a time for quiet contemplation of my own inarticulateness and lack of courtesy.
And he was great on Hillary Swank’s Celebrity Charade Party! Him and Jill Clayburgh, so good.
I think I might be a retard.
This isn’t Ain’t It Cool or The AV Club (thank god), but just for you, I’ll play all the parts this one time.
1st post: “Leno sucks. Letterman rules.”
2nd: “Fuck them both. Conan is the best.”
3rd: “I prefer Craig,”
4th: “People don’t give Fallon enough credit.”
5th: “Here’s my personal list … ”
You are Queens Boulevard!
He’s deaf (or 80% deaf, whatever) so I can’t imagine the call would be that great to begin with.
Which makes Ted even more of a douche.
“Dad, tell us about mom.”
“Well, this one time, years before I met her, I was trying to get a threeway going …”
This movie got my $12 right there.
Gabe, the hilarious part is he does own another castle. From People (kill me): “He still has another castle, Midford Castle, near Bath, England, which he bought in July 2007.”
Holy shit was I ever wrong. It’s “If You’re Talking to Me, Your Career Must Be in Trouble.” Thanks for the terrible book titles, Hollywood!
This is great — back in the 90′s I bought Joe Queenan’s “You’ll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again” (an anthology in which this essay appeared) just based on Spy Magazine’s reprinting of the index. “Sometimes you just have to roll the potato.”
Wow, they hit the Reset button on this series so fast, I thought I was watching Entourage. But I kid!
The real question: Will they put all the episodes before air date?
They misspelled “In Memoriam” on the blackboard behind Dennis Quaid. He is not a smart people, apparently.
At last! It’s been too long since I’ve seen a movie featuring a woman curled up and crying in the shower after an ugly sexual experience. (It’s at the 1:50 mark; blink and you’ll miss it!)
I bet Burt Reynolds was in a wheelchair because he didn’t want to do this movie and the producers were like “How about if you sit through all your scenes?”
I also like that this was Estella Warren’s one chance to go from model to actress and it completely tanked. Sorry, Lips.
The math works out:
(Sean Hayes needs work) + (Megan Mullally’s failed talk show + Young Frankenstein bomb) + (Ben Silverman is desperate) = Will and Grace spin-off
Indeed, Gabe is in his early 50′s and Lindsay is still a tween, so Family Guy is clearly lost on them. Me, I entered the contest because a Whopper value meal is a small price to pay for the opportunity to personally tell Seth MacFarlane he sucks.
Liz Phair is another argument in favor of making fun of adopted kids.
That’s begging to have a Zepplin riff dubbed over top. In 3, 2, 1 …
That, and he was comically old. His parents get murdered and it takes him 30 years to get his Batshit together.
