Our own Ladyrainicorn (human name: Theresa) has set up a blog for those of you looking for a clean corner of this garbage-filled Internet to continue to hang out and write with your Videogum family. It seems like it will be a wonderful place.
GASP! My name, on Videogum. Crap, I’m crying at work now. THANKS, KELLY. (Thank you so much, Kelly.)
Don’t forget about MOBFD.com Right now it’s dormant but we’ll keep you updated on monster stuff once my dog learns how to do my work for me.
Kelly, please come too! It will be ever so lovely!
I can’t sign up for wordpress with my current username. Who should I be post-Videogum???!?
Hello you beautiful monsters,
I have been lurking for about three years, and finally feel brave enough to comment. I know! I think about things A LOT before I make a decision. (I came really close a few times, especially to tell whoever it was that mentioned Bloodsport that I will watch Bloodsport anytime, anywhere, just for JCVD’s straddle splits. Kumate! Kumate!)
I cannot tell you guys how many times reading this site, especially the comments, have cheered me up and helped boost my faith in humanity. Seriously! There is an unusual amount of kindness and empathy that prevails here. Friends are made, people express their difficulties and are consoled, people come out or have babies or announce birthdays and everybody celebrates! That is a reflection of an authentic community.
I also want to tell the several people here who are from Boston that I also live in Boston! Boston is the best. Except I’m in Florida right now because sunshine.
I will definitely be a part of the WordPress site or wherever everyone ends up because, dammit, it’s time to step up to the plate to make sure there is a detailed, daily accounting of trampoline accidents, children doing funny (or gross) things, celebrities doing stupid (or gross) things, and the calling out of bigots and people who pee (or poop) their pants.
Here’s a picture of my dog, because I know that’s important here:
And my kitty:
So thanks Kelly (you rock), Gabe (RIP, most crotchety guy in heaven), and everybody who made this site worth visiting.
tl;dr I have a dog and a cat and Kelly rocks.
We’re saved! Sort of. Maybe we can work to make it as awesome as Vgum as been, little by little?
I don’t know if you guys remember that the thedailywh.at used to be a pretty great and videogum-similar site. Then cheezburger bought it and the main blogger left for gawker and it turned total crap. Well, someone from the community there went on to start a new blog, dailyoftheday.com, and it’s not that bad and I think actually a lot of the active people in the community moved there. The commenting has gone down remarkably the last couple of months though. Well, this was an uplifting post… Sorry.
