i thought Ted was 100% anti-Don and this episode sealed it. at least if Ted's kids end up "screwed up" it wouldn't be his fault the way it is with Don. also, Peggy really needed a heartbreak like this to facilitate doubling down on her career.

maron came off pretty passive aggressive in that fight with kumail, too. it's like his pendulum is swinging back the other way - gradually he's turning back into the defensive a-hole who thinks he's better than everyone, then it'll be back to unhappy about how under-appreciated he is, etc. they both do good work but this just makes them both look like they don't have a sense of humor about themselves. At all.

"Treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are ineffective long term and each of them serves to PROMOTE the spread of cancer cells" did you copy paste this shit from yahoo answers?

being famous sounds like a goddman nightmare and opening up your personal life to scrutiny is a bad choice. but using your famous face and name to publicize the importance of proactive medical measures, at the cost of personal privacy, is an amazing thing. whereas gwyneth paltrow uses her name and face to sell thousand dollar shot glasses. so.

literally neither. what you gain in brand recognition you lose in extreme vitriol from all the people who want to see his penis. it's biz 101.

he has an opportunity to contextualize what's happening to him and give it a new perspective and voice. i'm not saying he should shut up, i'm saying team up with christina hendricks for a 'my eyes are up here' initiative or something. don't bemoan it, channel it.

at least you get the choice to donate - of the large going concerns, you're inadvertently paying for MOST of them not to have to take on any risk with their own capital.

hollywood is an imperfect system with lots of negative externalities, but if you're making an argument about economic incentives, then this is decidedly an awesome idea. because if internet interest can be quantified and monetized this quickly, that signals a very large market opportunity that might encourage studios to take on more diversified risk. which is how you get a smorgasbord of great content, which is the ultimate victory for the audience.

i think i read somewhere that lena dunham had OCD as a kid/maybe still has it? even though i'm not a brain doctor, i think it a little bit makes sense in the context of hannah's character - like she's so hyperfocused on some stuff that she's too exhausted to be anything but lazy about other stuff. as far as the male characters changing unpredictably... i don't know. people at this age change unpredictably all the time. my biggest problem with the whole charlie is an internet mogul thing is that marnie showed up at his office without a purse on! you're not even in your home borough, where is your handbag?? god i love talking about girls.

maybe you're right? it's very hard for me to say b/c in my experience, it's the "tone"*, not the word itself. like, in the two cases i've been called a "kike" it has seemed less vitriolic than the handful of times i was called a "jew" in a hateful snarl. *i have fully become my mother

haha i like that all these qualities seemed very much in line w becoming a comedy writer before. but now that you've read the article, you've reconsidered. anyway, i think the trick is to first think of what needs to be pointed out in a jokey manner, then work backwards to word it in a funny way. starting from cunt and working backwards is not the best approach.

yes, it's an inevitable risk of being in comedy that sometimes you cross a line. and it's totally ok and forgivable and forgettable as long as you apologize - just like normal people resolve conflict between themselves. BUT! if you're going to make an offensive joke, please make sure to include the joke part! daniel tosh casually referring to the possibility of a woman being gang-raped is NOT a joke. the fact that he said it is bad, the fact that anyone misinterpreted it as a joke is EVEN WORSE. same with this cunt thing. when louis ck calls his daughters cunts, it's funny b/c it's part of a joke.
