Find Me On:
A little seriousgum for any takers:
This commercial makes me think about the really weird commercials for a drug store chain, I can’t remember which, but the one where the woman keeps getting little prizes from the vacuum tube as a reward for getting her prescriptions filled there. As much as I don’t want to be the bizarro-world converse to the paranoid anti-Obamacare netizens, I just always stare blankly at the screen during this commercial. A stuffed bunny to soften the blow of prescription drug prices? Is this our plan? It seems like a parody video satirizing market-driven health care. This gas thing feels the same, as do reward points on credit cards.
Brokebad Mountain, the crossover.
Did you hear Scott Aukerman’s mini-rant on the cleanliness of the hair in Revolution? Probably the least of the problems with Revolution, but fun and relevant nonetheless.
The transformation has beguuuunnnn
Is it appropriate to be giving lifetime achievement awards for web stuff when the dude that invented the web is 57?
*Webby* Lifetime Achievement Award, tho
I satisfied my science credit in college with a little doozy called energy and entropy, which could sound cool and a little intimidating, but it was taught by a guy who looked like a depressed Santa Claus and mostly lectured about how his first wife* didn’t understand that he experienced love by having people cook for him, and also that he “doesn’t really read books anymore.” He did teach me that bananas were a really efficient food, and that eating a banana is like “gluing it to your body”. Needless to say, I took all my notes for said class in doodles, and so I do have a drawing of a bewildered little guy with bananas glued all over his body.
*both of his wives were students…
but women named Chrystal Chandalier get jobs EASILY
-Vin Diesel, showing his full breadth of knowledge of gender relations
that one was a laugh-cry-shiver. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Also, that buzz lightyear is really amazingly rendered, but could have still had a hyper-realistically painted face but hewed closer to the personality of the original.
Also, I think this one is my favorite, in case anyone is trying to figure what to get me for christmas, or just likes to analyze their monster pals based on their weird fan-fic-y preferences:
Waaaait a minute little “Viral Right Now” widget, “The 23 funniest Vines of all time?” by “all time”, do you mean the last 6 seconds of human history, I’m pretty sure that’s how long Vine has existed.
are you a cameraperson on the all-flannel cat feeding network?
but, given those multitudes, I’m surprised youtube still doesn’t have a “portrait” mode for their video player…
Does an IRL Click remote have a kickstarter yet? or maybe just the movie sequel. Hopefully the movie sequel, because not having unfettered creative control was definitely what was wrong with that movie.
that was beautiful, but it upset me a little that my brain kept preparing for an announcer to try to soft sell me some life insurance…
with a youtube account name like 666SHITWAVE666 how could one NOT deliver the best?
At first glance I thought it said Champagnhetti, and I started to imagine spaghetti with champagne sauce. I wasn’t gonna judge.
those were both pretty damn perfect
I’m fully aware that the whole “band name, album title” extracted from incidental text is so dead its ghost is rolling its eyes, but I’m gonna forge ahead on this one:
Band: Inedible Ghost Hands
Album: Rubbing their Tummies
I’ve got like one chapter left. And I agree on the book club, I’m gonna need to talk about this one, it was intense and amazing!
Oof. We lost Rumbuls, our 17 y/o in September, and it broke me. I still get all teary when I see her pics in my phone. Much love to Little Bear, wherever he may be.
I held off on saying something similar, but you opened the can on this one, which was brave. I wouldn’t say jerk, but just slightly more sarcastic in that, “nerd with a slightly off-kilter sense of comic timing and delivery so it comes off just a touch abrasive” kind of quality. Sagan is more in the stare into your face unblinkingly and transfer his pure sweet awe of the universe into you, a-la Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross. He is entertaining, and makes people psyched about astrophysics though, so full speed ahead, I say.
