People losing body parts makes me sad. I don’t like it when women lose their breasts. I don’t like it when men lose a ball or two. I don’t like people losing limbs and eyes and fingers in explosions and other scenarios where people lose parts of their body. Accidents. Medicine. whatever. There are many reasons why people lose body parts. And the fact that we come into this world with a set of stuff, and a lot if not most people leave this world missing parts is, well, ‘normal,’ but still tragic in that sacrifices are made, and our fragile shells have been chipped away at in one form or another, and the medical side of things is so weird because you are faced with the decision of allowing people the permission to remove your things from you. And I don’t like that all this is apparently normal. Jump into life. Let’s lose ourselves.
“Phantom limb” is a bad-ass phrase tho.
Now that’s good television.
I was so sad about Ros last week. I have not read the books. I did not know she was not in them. But I enjoyed her climb up the social ladder, and Esmé Bianco is a real… what is a term for someone who wears clothes well (when she was wearing them, of course)?
Whoever it was in hair & makeup and wardrobe did a really good job on Ros. I loved looking at her.
Hell yeah. Bryan Safi, Erin Gibson and everybody are doing the Lord of Light’s work with Gay of Thrones.
Also, I love their podcast Throwing Shade.
In fact, if I see a picture of Giamatti or even hear his name I always hear Adomian-as-Giamatti in my head say, “YEAH, WELL”
I shaved my head only part way when my hair clippers broke. It was right around4-5pm, so I had to wait out rush hourz before I would go to the hair clipper store. So I had my hoodie on and would occasionally whip back the hood to look at my hair remains in the mirror. I didn’t mind it in the slightest, and running my hands through it was fun due to the bevy of textures. The only reason I finally ventured out was due to the pressure of social norms, and the fact that it wouldn’t be an acceptable hairstyle in the workplace.
I found about the Ohio stuff this morning on twitter when Gabe asked if anything good has ever happened in a basement and I replied with ‘Wayne’s World.’
Then I figured out something with a basement had happened in the news, and I watched the Charles Ramsey interview, which I thought was very good just as an interview with a hero recounting the ordeal in his own words.
The article with the video that I was on briefly laid out the facts, then went on to talk about Ramsey’s rising internet star and LOOK! He ALREADY has autotune videos! I played one for about :20 before I thought two things, 1) This sounds rushed and shitty and compromises the integrity of Ramsey’s story, and 2) This is fucking stupid and I hate it.
Then I moved on faster than the internet.
I think it depends. What is the frequency of available fresh figs in grocery stores around you? She is on quite the fig trip right now.
Good job this week, guys! I didn’t get to look at Videogum once on account of my mom visiting from Hawaii to force me to go to a bunch of art museums BLECH “Let’s go to LACMA, let’s go to the Getty Villa” COME ON, MOM what’s with the fifth degree?! MOMS, amirite?
THEN she took me to Target because she saw the list of things I need on my fridge that I am slowly purchasing over long stretches of time when I am not buying them, and then she bought all of them. GAWD. ‘*THANKS* FOR THE CARPET, MOM. It REALLY ties the ROOM together.”
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA
That dude was Jefferson!
And she wasn’t wearing her Elektra costume.
How come there’s no word of whether or not Tobey spotted Jennifer?
Maybe he was too wrapped up in guiding his son along that plant and skatestopper-riddled wall to notice her.
I woke up not too long ago and I am now going to try and do everything I’m supposed to do on my ‘weekend’ in the span of the next 8-10 hours. Laundry, do some photoshop work, clean, etc. I’m kicking the whole thing off with the Throwing Shade podcast and a beer.
I seriously doubt you’d have to scrounge up that much cash, because you’d be buying a print of a digital painting, not a physical original.
I guess I really wanted to point that out, that digital artists, by working digital, miss out on having originals to sell for outrageous prices. But who am I kidding, somehow they’ll still find a way to do that. “The THUMB DRIVE with the only known print file copy is now going for $36,000!”
The Matrix Recycled
I saw The Big Hit twice in theater because Mark Wahlberg is hilarious.
One half of this statement is true.
Where were you two when War Horse was getting short shrift? That horse was magical as fuck. Fairweather friends…
That’s super bad-ass.
Thanks, artdork & five flasks! I have literally been internet-speechless for most of this week in lieu of all of its happenings, so it’s a nice distraction to get a Videogum award and revel in my little achievement for a minute or two before going back to all that gray muck Gabe described above.
I’m pretty sure the word of the day became ‘Hernia’ as soon as Jon mentioned it.
Absolutely, Steph. If anything she needed to finish up any and all of her #ConcernForBoston tweets for the day before waiting a beat and continuing with business-as-usual.
And now I am done discussing how a famous teenager should manage her twitter feed.
Hopefully if Anne Frank were alive today she would tweet out well wishes to the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing.
It’s called the Lingerie Football League, now called the Legends Football League apparently. Indoor arena football.
I actually caught a couple games on a local tv station back when I was living in Huntington Beach. It’s pretty brutal-looking, and I say that in all seriousness.
Their tackling methods horrified me every time, because for whatever reason the way they violently jerked each other down to the ground just looks ultra-violent and neck-snapping (like when wolves snap a small rodent’s neck). Then there is the added cringe-worthiness because the ladies are in little shorts and tops, so it’s bare skin hitting asphalt.
I think this is the Lingerie Football League (LGL), for reals, except apparently they’ve just rebranded and are now called LEGENDS Football League, which makes zero sense as a L-word to replace Lingerie with.
I remember Plaza was on a podcast about a year ago talking about To Do List. Apparently it’s about ‘DOING’ it.
