I second almost all of this. Not to beat down on Gabe at all because he does this job 1000000000x better than I could ever do it, but it seems like he HAS gotten all of these other opportunities and videogum has a different feel because of it. Not to say that Vgum is suffering at all, because I don’t think that’s the right word to describe it… I just don’t think Gabe is necessarily as present as he used to be. Maybe that’s a result of readership growing, the community growing, etc, but I think that Gabe’s other projects distract the audience from videogum and it’s much more about Gabe as a semi-famous person then Gabe, the really funny, but slightly curmudgeonly writer that you kind of take for granted.

I started reading Videogum in 2008 and I was in a very different place (college!). Then I went to a super easy job that left me lots of time to check videogum throughout the day and now I’m in a really busy job that has semi-shitty internet and Videogum just can’t be a part of my routine anymore. To read everything all at once at night isn’t fun and it limits commenting because all of the babies are in bed by then (joking, sort of!). But really it isn’t any fun to comment on something that has 200+ comments already. Besides reading the post, you also have to spend 10 minutes reading and thinking about the comments? It’s like a second job. I loved you guys here, but it’s too much work. Also, maybe I am getting old and boring, but the hundreds of inside jokes and the gifs get old verrrry quickly.

He started doing that a few sketches ago and for some reason it really, really bothers me.

I just signed in for the first time in 100 million billion years just to comment on how wrong you are.

Very wrong. This was hilarious.

It definitely does not depend on your major. $150K is not a starting salary for any college graduate. (I wish it were.) Had he graduated from the Law school and started at a NY firm he would be making at least 160K/year excluding his bonus (and I could go on about this because law school recruiting is my job, but I’ll spare you guys). Anyway – he graduated from GS, which means he just got his BA, so no big bucks for this guy. Especially not after this little disaster.

I thought the numbers were explained by the lighthouse. At least it explained why Jacob used them. As to why they popped up everywhere, not sure… maybe it’s the idea that the island was calling those six people the entire time?

That is one very easy-going cat. Mine are nice and all, but the scratching would start about 10 seconds in.

Pretty sure Alpert was a slave. In the first episode of the seasonFlocke told him “The last time I saw you, it was in chains” or something like that.
