Find Me On:
Ok and the funny part about this post is that all the apathetic sarcasm I worried was missing from this blog after reading the Nike post (in which everyone got there panties in a bunch over a marketing campaign) was here all along! Way to be apathetic about horrific anti-Semitism! I’m probably not even being sarcastic right now, because yea for realz Mel Gibson is a stupid face and we knew that already, sure.
Also this comment probably only makes sense to me but that is fine because also it will not be read by any other people ever because I am a day late and that is at least a century in internet years.
I can’t believe I had to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a comment this not crazy. I mean, for real, this video is a straight up lie. The reason why they did it in 10 days (if they even did that, because wtf that is a lot of places) is because they weren’t trying to visit these places and explore the freaking world while doing it, they were straight up trying to make a nike commercial. And yea, it’s a load of yuck, but that’s what commercials are generally all of the time! Do we really have to be THAT offended that Nike is trying to market itself to the burning man demographic? Good luck with that, nike, or whatever.
I am also sensing a general theme of increased psychotic rage on this site over dumb stuff. Where are the apathetic sarcastic people? I thought the Videogum community was generally more into the apathetic sarcasm. That may have not been a thing, but I think it was a thing, and I think I liked it way better. People are dumb! Let’s not waste all our time and energy with caring!
I’m coming down on the Anne Hathaway side too. I mean, for serious? What she said was vaguely annoying, but had positive intent, and certainly doesn’t warrant this level of deep analyzation. I hope I’m in the majority when I say that cruel personal comments about relatively non-offensive actor people is not in the slightest bit creative or interesting. I recognize the fact that a certain level of bitter Gabe sarcasm is to be expected once in a while, but this is excessive.
This makes me want to do violence to myself.
I hated the book but the movie looks pretty good.
I don’t think the point of Cats song was that Adam Sandler didn’t cry, it was that not only was he completely uninterested in it, but his reaction was completely off base (“little person singing a big person song” “acid trip!”). It just sort of illustrated a bit about how he didn’t really understand Leslie Mann’s life or her children, and demonstrated how he wouldn’t really fit into that family.
And while the movie was definitely too long in a “hmm, it’s been a while but I guess that’s okay” kind of way, I thought that there were several ridiculously funny one liners and my interest was piqued throughout. It wasn’t funny all the time, but it wasn’t trying to, and I think it had a pretty nice not exactly profound message about getting older and not being an asshole.
Oh no, not a new kind of list!
Burn After Reading was pretty great. This looks weird, but I will see it because the Coen brothers are in general pretty great.
I wanted to see the scene at the beginning where the wizard prime minister dropped some knowledge on the muggle prime minister. I haven’t read the book since it came out but I remember that part and it would have been mad cool.
And since I didn’t really remember anything else about the book, I found it mildly entertaining, worth the movie ticket, and slightly confusing but not overly so. Hermione stopped acting with her eyebrows, Ron is got pretty cute, and I’ve seen Harry naked. More Fred and George and Luna and Neville would have a plus but you can’t have everything.
I managed to find myself watching the movie with my mom, dad, and 15 year old sister (who has seen many an R rated film). My mom left right after the butt sex (which was what, 10 minutes into the movie?) and my sister forced the rest of us out after being “scarred for life” by the dancing penis in the TV promo thing. I’ll probably try to see it again because some parts were pretty funny, but from what I saw it was too much trying to shock the audience by being super super dirty and not enough mocking of the stupid.
Haha, my dad emailed my those pictures in some chain mail. Even though he’s an avid watcher he didn’t notice the very obvious Kate in handcuffs. Maybe the newscaster in Bolivia got the same one and they ran with it…
When I was in 6th grade I had one shining glorious moment of off-handedly throwing a kid’s baseball cap on his head from 20 feet away on the first try. No one cheered for me or anything, but it was still may have been more of a rush than my first kiss, finally graduating high school, and getting a scholarship for college combined.
I’m not a big Jack Black fan (sorry, but there it is) but I love Michael Cera being Michael Cera so I sort of expected to only like it half the time…. which is pretty much what ended up happening. I don’t know if Cera has any abilities to be anything but himself but he’s definitely good at what he does.
I didn’t especially appreciate the poop eating/upsidedown peeing/anal jokes, but my teenage stepbrothers did, so we all got something out of it, I guess.
Love love loved the book, can’t wait for the movie. This movie might be the most painful thing I’ve ever dragged my boyfriend to (wheee we’re so excited to be married we’re jumping on the bed!), but after taking me to Terminator Salvation he deserves it.
