Any ‘Young Ones’ reference is a great reference.
This is your ex-recapgirlfriend. Game of Thrones is your new recapgirlfriend!
Oh, let us not forget the Asians! They are crazy good at breakdancing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRWFp5pN4ME
Can we make a short film where Vincent Gallo (Vincent Gallo) says the following, so everyone can know what a vile human being he is?
Let’s talk about what a wonderful president George Bush has been so far.Let’s talk about how ridiculous handicap parking is. Let’s talk about why the Puertoricans think they need to have a parade down fifth avenue. Or for that matter why the gays do too. Why isn’t the Veterans Day parade down fifth avenue? The people who secure our nation get a couple blocks in Brooklyn while the fags and spics get Fifth Avenue.
Let’s call it “Kill Yourself.”
My childhood crush on Val Kilmer legally obligates me to see Twixt. Plus his ex-wife from Willow is in it, so it’s ALMOST LIKE Sasha and Madmartigan are back, and Tom Waits is narrating, and commmeeeee oooooonnnnnnn
Er, is this like when Kevin Spacey was “mugged” in a London park at five in the morning? :/
Also a twin! Childhood is super fun when you always have a friend around
“As we see on an almost daily basis on this blog, the Internet is an endless Swamp of Sadness that will eventually kill all of the Artaxes”
THIS IS MY NEW FOREVER PHRASE
Oh gosh, Gabe, please watch Carpenter’s “The Thing” and then rewatch that trailer.
I’m not a purist and do believe most movies can be remade in an interesting way, but “The Thing” is so perfectly terrifying and dread-inducing that this trailer/”prequel” just clearly misses the boat on why it was scary to be begin with.
(oh, I have so much to say about rescuing a dog in New York city, and trust me, it will make your moustachioed head spin right of your neck and fall into the middle of McCarren Park)
I grew up in Connecticut, and this woman is very Connecticut. LOCKJAW.
God damn it, if this had been ten years ago, Guy Pearce would have been all over this. And I would have been all over him.
Holy shit, is this the first ever CGI animated outsider art? I am really sincerely amazed!
Would love to see Gabe replace the True Blood recaps with Game of Throne recaps. I prefer seeing something he (you? whatever) mostly likes but can explain the flaws in a humorous way, as opposed to something he fucking haaaaaaaaaates.
Vin Diesel is a loud and proud Dungeons and Dragons player, and for that, he is My Boyfriend.
Wow, I hope I wasn’t the only nerd who thought that was Alan Moore!
I think I’m reacting to the general outdated Tolkienesque model of fantasy, where it’s geographically based on Europe and any non-white characters exist on the fringes, their cultures drastically and overdramatically different. Why do brown people have to be hot-tempered and close to the earth and half-naked and “life is short, so let’s fuck and kill”? Do they exist only to reaffirm the emotionally controlled and cold white cultures?
Now I’m just griping about the source material of the show, but it would have been cool of HBO to make changes that were for the better, not the worse. THREAD HIJACKING DONE SORRRRRRRRY!
the Dothraki are a barbarian hoard whose culture is basically built entirely around sex and death (life is short when you’re basically always at war, after all). It’s probably at least a bit racist to have the only colored people in the show be so wildly primitive and “other”
It is totally racist. I love Song of Fire and Ice, I have been a fan for years, and the racism in the books is barely tolerable (as if any form of racism is tolerable, but ANYWAYS), but HBO managed to make it even MORE racist, which is pretty amazing. When you have a cast on a show that is based on European medieval times and therefore dictates almost everyone is white (fine.), then be so so CAREFUL with the few brown characters you have.
I’m very disappointed that HBO took out the one redeeming aspect of Drogo and his crazy brown ways, which is that he is incredibly sweet with Daenerys from the start. Not to be grosso, but the very fact that their first round of sex is her on top instead of getting raped from behind is A BIG DEAL.
This is not a dealbreaker, but I don’t want to feel like, as a woman of color, I have to defend this series to women and people of color. “It’s just the first episode, it gets better” vs. defending your racist/sexist boyfriend, “You just have to get to know him better.” I’m sure it will, but I feel like a hypocrite
He can’t even use original music during his crappy song? ugh.
No creepo, but I actually started watching Misfits after Brad kept blogging about it on his Tumblr. It’s really amazing! Some not great plot points in the second season, but the characters are great and the casting is perfect.
Hah, I’m a lady. Half of my group is actually ladies. Ask some women to play!
I just started playing a couple months ago at the age of 26. I never got to play in high school because I didn’t know anyone who was interested. I decided to ask a bunch of friends to join, all of whom had never played before, and everyone is really into it!
It is bringing us closer together, and has become a really positive influence in all our lives. You should ask some of the friends you have now to start!
Can I just point out that this woman is like a multimillionaire and she has the ugliest fucking website that looks like it’s from 1996? http://www.elizabethgilbert.com/eatpraylove.htm
As if I didn’t already want to bang Eisenberg after hearing he fosters cats, he goes and hosts SNL wonderfully. Honey, I will take your El Shrinko dinko any night of the week!
