Find Me On:
My favourite was Cate Blanchett because I like a girl who takes a bit of a risk. The rest of the dresses have been a bit of a snooze fest.
I’m getting my Southern Cross tattoo and my Aussie flag bikini ready as we speak
This. The number of times I’ve just backed down from a conversation because I know I will only end up infuriated is ridiculous, especially this year when my studies shifted from Modern Art to Contemporary Art. Don’t ask me to ‘discuss’ works with you if you actually just want to throw out ridiculous generalisations.
On the other hand: Art History Gum! Let’s paint, exercise and debate things!
I only watch the movie with commentary on now. You learn so much valuable information like the fact that there was a 90min meeting on the colour of Aurelia’s underwear and Hugh Grant’s acting tricks
Also, fun fact:
Billy Bob Thornton has a phobia of Benjamin Disraeli’s Hairstyle (what?) and thus had a really tough time filming inside the fake Downing St set because there were portraits of Disraeli everywhere
That may all be well, Gabe, but with Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Martin Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro and (to a lesser extent) Hugh Grant this movie was never meant for you, amirite ladies?
I actually thought she was ok in View from the Bridge because she was playing a character that I found just as infuriating and unlikeable as she appears in real life
me too! represent!
I agree with Mans, I still cannot get the site to keep me logged in which is admittedly a minor pain but it would be nice not to have to log in every single time I visit the site (which, given I am snowed under with lots of important assignments at the moment, is a lot)
also, I know this is very ‘I have an iPhone’ but it would be nice if there was mobile version of the site that was formatted to work on iphones/ipods/whatever… currently if i try to visit the site on my phone it takes forever to load a page and eventually safari just crashes out
I hate myself for even being able to answer this but I think Serena is staying at Blair’s because she’s pissed that her mum didn’t tell her that she spent time with her dad overseas and hid that letter from her that ended up at the centre of the whole coat swap fiasco of last season.
As for Nate I am not sure (though wasn’t he living in Chuck’s apartment in the hotel? maybe he got kicked out too??)
this really is the worst not just because he is a terrible ‘musician’ (using that term loosely) but because the vid is set in my wonderful home town of Melbourne and he some how manages to crap all over some of the nicest parts of it (let the people in the alleyways eat their lunch in peace! and move out of the way of the sun so we can all enjoy the beach view!).
seriously. also, no Friday Night Lights love!? come on!
It is a crime that Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton continually get overlooked with stuff like this. I guess the bigger crime is that i’m still shocked year after year when the nominations come out and they’re absent
YES! I cannot believe you neglected to mention this Gabe!
Just teenagers being teenagers (obviously) but I can’t help but think why the writers thought this was the appropriate setting for that scene. All that happens is blair whinging about nate’s annoying girlfriend, what part of that screams ‘seedy massage scene with inappropriate amounts of candles’?
I also liked: “My family is in investment banking, so they’re all broke’ Recession zing! ugh.
so true, the minute i heard about this the day after (because no, i’m not the type of person who finds watching a lame reunion for a variety show that has never been funny or insightful entertaining) I knew it would end up around the globe which is just embarrassing.
I found it distasteful, all my friends and family did too and no one with access to google can really argue the ‘we didn’t know’ defence. Just goes to show how many bogan idiots there are across the country these days which is kinda depressing
New Zealand? that seems to be our equivalent of ‘I’m moving to Canada!’
as ashamed as I am that this embarrassment of a situation has reached the hallowed ground of Videogum, it has made me aware that there are more australians on here than i thought, we really are everywhere
that cat looks very relaxed. good job!
I am sorry about your wallet too, I have been there and it weird because on one level it’s like ‘meh cards can be replaced’ but on another it feels like a really creepy, uncomfortable violation of your privacy.
I’m more amazed that Gabe managed to get all the way through to the fourth season of the o.c.
the odd thing is i live in australia and i didn’t even get that advertisement- i got some random ad about online music downloading that involved a crocodile…
even the internet doesn’t want me to meet somebody!
I think the saddest part about this is that the poor cello, unable to cope with the fame and fortune thrust upon it, has become the latest victim of Hollywood’s obsession with skinny celebrities. poor thing, embrace your curves!
well maybe you shouldn’t have gone to europe for two weeks…hmm?
My Prime Minister eats his own earwax… says enough
damon may be slightly annoying but damn if he didn’t partially thaw out my cold cold heart with his question about bullying!
the types of people who like Le Divorce now are the people who in 20 years or so, when they’re middle aged and contemplating re-returning to study to get that art history/french degree, will adore movies like ‘Under the tuscan sun’ whereby a middle aged women, distraught over her divorce/old age are grown up flees to the countryside in France/Italy/Greece and rents a rundown villa/farmhouse/cottage and whilst initially struggling with the locals who don’t accept her comes to fall in love with her carpenter/plumber/local guide who shows her the real ‘european’ meaning of passion and commits to her long term (when clearly one knows that in places like that there’s always some young, hot, easy backpacker floating around who would be a much better option for said young plumber/carpenter/guide)
this is so true, I have been a happily passive member of the family these past however many months it’s been since april 08, happy to let all the other monsters entertain me with their/my weird brand of humour provided i could respond with an anonymous ‘well done! good job!’ positive reinforcement in the form of an upvote.
but i now see that the world is changing and i too must change along with it
