Find Me On:
I also Netflixed this recently hoping for some cheese served with a side of “aw,” but it wasn’t even romantic-comedy-bad. It was just really really bad. Like all around bad.
Godsauce Alters Today’s Family Circus made me want to start a tumblr, just so that I can follow the Godsauce Alters Today’s Family Circus tumblr.
whatwhatwhatwhatwhat?! it’s as if internet scientists put all of their research into a giant machine, and out conga-ed these puppies into the most perfect internet video forward of all time.
I also saw Garden State at 19 and loved it. Now I’m 26 and I love this blog post.
Also killing it for me? I saw GS twice in theatres, the second time as a double feature (KIDS!). The movie we started with was “Maria Full of Grace” …. whoops! The side by side comparison was, at best, eye opening.
This sounds like a request for a very special invite to an LA monster meet up. I’ll get the glitter and construction paper! I should just mail it to Hollywood, right? Care of Big Time?
He’s seen “Escape from LA” right? This will never work out.
Is it just me is or is the above rendition of “California Gurls” really really bad. Like, they accidentally turned on her mic when they shouldn’t have bad. Not that the original is any Tina Turner, but oof.
I actually just saw this last night… then saw the article this morning. Whoops, I totally thought at least parts of it were real (easily dupe-able, right here) but I think knowing it’s not makes it even more interesting and exciting. As an audience, we tend to be jaded with celebrity, when bigger stars make a movie, unavoidably, we bring all of this baggage about the actor to the character they’re trying to portray — which they touch on at the beginning of the film, the freedom as an actor to create realistic characters when everyone has this “character” already attached to you. So in a sense, making the character a bizarro Joaquin Pheonix, played by Joaquin Pheonix was kind of turning that on it’s head.
I love this blog (I have VIDEOGUM4EVS tattooed on my wallet) but I disagree with the bitterness that seems to be out there towards this project. When Affleck says they didn’t mean to “trick” anybody, I think he’s saying they didn’t do this with malicious intent toward the audience. I don’t get the sense that they want us to feel like idiots (which is probs why he came clean?) they were just experimenting with storytelling realism.
I hope that when I am 110 I can go back in time and be this video. (then kill Hitler)
“now ladies and gentlemen I’d like you to have your attention pleeease”
A+ job Titanic 2. Now when can I buy tickets? (because you forgot to include a release date whoops!)
I’m going to start saying “paradox” while doing jazz hands.
When his name appeared, half of my theatre began to boo, then the other half started laughing and clapping in support of the booing.
And I went home and wrote in my journal “today was a perfect day”
I will miss the Party Down gang always and forever… but I’m also glad to see it leave the world as it came in: a brilliant shooting star of blazing comedic glory. Look at Arrested Development. Only the good die young you guys.
Why does this remind of (what I imagine would be*) a Josh Groban video?
*Note: I do not typically watch Josh Groban videos… though making this reference is a bit incriminating. I’ll just show myself to Internet Time Out.
Kansas City: City of Nightmares. I don’t know whats happening to our hood, but thank goodness for videogum, $10 Carlo Rossi and the Zoo Bar. I couldn’t do it without these guys!
Heavens no, KC suburban sprawl
Is your dog in the market for an assistant treasurer? This is the midwest, and lord knows I would really hate to start something.
There’s a Kansas branch? Can I be treasurer?
This cat video is great, but this comment thread is greater. Thanks everyone, my heart spilleth forth with up votes.
Dollars or whatever should really consider hiring Avery for her next video– this is scores of improvement on the original.
I wanted to contribute to the Swanson Celebration with his Will and Grace cameo as “Plumber with Smoldering Sex Appeal”, but instead, I found this. You’re welcome. But also, I’m sorry.
I only made it to :07 before I had to cover my eyes and blindly, yet frantically, try to hit pause. tooscarygum.
Damn. I was really hoping that “official music video” was the explanation… now I just feel creepy and gross for watching what was probably thrown to Schwartzman in a backpack over his backyard fence.
I see it as more of a win-win, the animals do something adorable but that takes minimal effort, they get a snack. I used to do the same thing as a waitress with low cut blouses.
Demeaning, yes, but who doesn’t like snacks?
I’ll call Papa John’s you guys
