I watch Modern Family too, Rafael Alberto Perez.
that one clip of an old woman, probably comparitvely poor, running a popcorn stand in a busy touristy area, having her stand accidentaly set on fire, her only economic tie, half-crying in russian so you can never be sure of the depth of her screamed words, was the saddest footage i’ve seen this week.
but also HAHA FAIL. IN YOUR FACE GRANDMA. FAIL FAIL FAIL. HAHAHAHAHA
MINUS THE DRUNK DRIVING obviously. Unless that’s next level trolling.
is her just being a massive troll obvious only to me? I feel like i’m living in crazy town.
Who even cares if their motives are internally focused? At least there’s a modicum of positivity and support behind them, instead of cynicism being masked as befuddlement for jokez on blog.com
I actually was so on board with the opening scene of pulling glass out of your head with no blood. That could be the start of a really intense psychology probing art film.
But then it was because, like superpowers, or college or something? Nah. Nahhhhh.
I learned abosolutely nothing about the weather forecast for tomorrow.
I watched this high last night. And I’ve never wanted someone to just DIAL IT DOWN more in my life.
We just say Mask.
Am I alone in not assigning any weight whatsoever to “cultural re-appropriation” outrage, when the re-appropriated item is something with absolutely ZERO gravitas.
White people wearing native american headdresses? Absolutely that’s messed up.
But a dance that a guy invented for a Puff Daddy music video, with vague similarities to an ethiopian dance, but that is mostly basing it on what drunk people kind of look like? Let’s maybe relax.
Not as good as the first Ghostbusters.
In 10th grade. our teacher would have “How you doing? Fridays” where he would ask everyone how they were doing. I got so sick of it by the end, that one Friday I responded deadpan as a joke “I’m thinking about killing myself, Mr. Caswell.”
And nobody laughed. And the teacher was very concerned, until I explained after class that it was a joke, and then he gave me detention.
This is a 100% true story of one of the most embarrassing moments of my life. But it’s also a metaphor or something.
This isn’t Friday…. You don’t get to tell me who to follow today! I AM MY OWN MAN SIX OUT OF SEVEN DAYS OF THE WEEK, GODDAMNIT
“An aerosol that sprays particles of dark chocolate into your mouth”
That was a really unfortunate time to use the only footage they had of a black man.
I’m actually a little pissed off that I’m going to have to finally watch this show just to get the jokes.
Sam Waterson has to make some sacrifices if he wants to push that new debate format for the presidential candidates.
to be fair, it probably took him like 10 minutes to think of something, and then the person directly next to him (you) steals his idea.
99% of movies aren’t shared communal experiences where everyone experiences a temporary unspoken connection with the strangers around them.
I think that communal argument is bullshit. People bonding through a screening of The Raven? Give me a break.
Maybe this happens with the big blockbusters with marketing that we’ve all been culturally immersed and saturated in, one liners dripping off our skin.
But even then, most of the time you are sitting there in silence for two hours, at best asking someone if the seats next to them are taken.
The post title got my hopes up.
I was thinking that Obama full out used a bait and switch with the lyrics IRL (i.e. “We’re working tirelessly, and I mean that, to ensure that you and other students like yourself have more affordable access to education and aren’t loaded down with debt by the time you graduate. Now. I just met you. And this is crazy. But here’s my number. So call me maybe.”)
And then he drops the mic, and the audience wails “AW FUCK HE GOT US. 10/10″
Maybe let’s say between 13-25 or something.
Unless you’re accusing babies of being willfully ignorant of the societal framework of racial inequality.
In which case, uh.
This has been up for a full half hour and no-one has posted a picture of Vin Diesel with overlapping text reading “DANCE TO YOUR OWN BEAT” yet.
Is BuzzMedia offering tenure now or something?
Lost In Translation but I’m sure you know where you’re going
The “Wear a serial killer costume to a date” strategy doesn’t have a high success rate, but when it works….
