Monsters Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Gabe Delahaye | June 8, 2012 - 5:45 pm

Frankly, there are too many podcasts. THERE, I SAID IT. Seriously with all the podcasts? You can buy them off of the in-flight menu on Virgin airplanes to Los Angeles and when you touch down your available on iTunes. It’s too much! But I will point out, because I thought I was going to a baseball game tomorrow but I’m not, I’m going next Saturday, so I have a lot more spare time than I thought I was going to have this weekend, and if you are in a similar situation then I would want someone like me to tell…me that you should listen to this episode of Pete Holmes interviewing Chelsea Peretti on his podcast, You Made It Weird. It’s just the funniest thing. (This week’s episode features Jenny Slate, if you REALLY don’t have plans.) See you next week at the ballpark!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Betty White And Wax Sculpture Betty White Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

OR an endless slow-mo loop of him KOing Pete as “I Will Remember You” plays in the background.

If you are going to attend a rap music concert this summer, I highly suggest watching from backstage. Whenever I visit my dear friend Jay-Z on tour, usually in Paris or Barcelona, I make sure the green room is fitted with organic vegetables and local, artesianal cheeses. I tend to bring my own wine to the rap music concerts because sometimes it is rather difficult to get the right burgandy or sauvignon blanc if the venue’s sommelier has the day off. To save time, I often keep all of my rap music concert accoutrements in a hand-woven basket I picked up while visiting a craft fair in Tuscany. Uh oh, it’s my time to feed Blue Ivy her bottle of unicorn’s blood. Enjoy the show!

Jaquen’s facechange trick blew my mind. Didn’t see that coming.

I watch, read and consume a lot of wacky, wacky shit, but I generally draw the line at fantasy. Anyway, I keep waiting to dip my toe into the Game of Thrones pool, based on all of the buzz. However, that banner pic basically confirms my worst fears.

So my roommate is all moved out and I was pleased as punch until this very moment because we used to read the friendly chats as a dialgoue where he was Gabe and I was Kelly and when I read this it made me laugh out loud and I had to call him on the phone on his new apartment so we could read it together.

Frank Lloyd Wrong | Jun 7th Score:7

OK, I’ve been trying to cobble a Marilyn Horne/Marilyn Manson joke for the past 15 minutes, but it’s not working and I’m not sure too many people even know who Marilyn Horne is to make it work, so I feel like its a fool’s errand. I feel like I’ve lost the Kathleen Battle.
