Review: Wo Zhi Nu Ren Xin (What Women Want)

Okay, so, when I was asked to guest blog for Videogum I panicked. Can I really just rely on tips all day?

Comments from BradOFarrell

I just want to point out that I know the difference between the word "facade" and the word "charade" and I intentionally picked the word "charade" and I'm not dumb.

Yeah it wasn't dubbed. Someone just said that in the comments on YouTube and everyone told him to shut up. The description of the video apologizes for the audio being a little out of synch, which is why it looks dubbed.

Wait, what? Did we read/write the same post? I was totally like "I feel like I should be ridiculing this guy but there's no reason to ridicule him." Comparing something to Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the highest honor I can bestow. What do you people want from me!

I haven't seen Amelia but did you know that the REAL Amelia Earhart was eaten by Coconut Crabs and they hoarded her bones in their burrows all over the island on which she died so now they don't have her body even though they know where she crashed? Was that in the movie?

I mean she has as much control over her power as Rogue does. She totally does use it to rape people on the show. And they call it rape. What do you want from me?

Basically by touching men she makes THEM rape HER. But really, she's raping them, because they have no control over it.

Haha, the one in my profile picture is actually just a Garfield costume (that I lost? How do you lose a Garfield costume.) that I threw a blue shirt over and some ears. I THIS IS NOT HELPING MY WHOLE "I AM NOT A FURRY" ARGUMENT. Both costumes were only worn at events where you're supposed to wear a costume, I swear.

I didn't get paid but only because I'm lazy. The guy who actually filmed the cat playing the keyboard before I was born, Charlie Schmidt, has been taking way more initiative than me and has been the one going out and getting all the deals lately. I got a few deals like that early on but then I got lazy. I mean it's his cat. I guess I technically own the phrase "Keyboard Cat" and I guess I COULD sue (my dad keeps telling me to sue) but I'm not a douche, that's such a douchey thing to do. If I wanted to make more money off of it I would have put in the effort to do so. Charlie put in more effort than me so he deserves more money. The end.

God I hate that picture. Also I've lost 70 lb since then. Also I'm not a furry. Though my 15 year old cousin who made that suit for me (IT WAS FOR ROFLCON, IT WAS FOR BUSINESS, IT'S A BUSINESS SUIT) actually is a furry and does furry commissions and my mom got me in touch with her so she could make me a fur suit :(

I took Videogum out of my Google Reader and only occasionally check it through @Videogum Twitter links because it was just TOO MANY POSTS for me to feel obligated to mark as read every day. And also, with Lindsay's unfortunate passing it felt like even MORE post because there's just so many Gabe posts now. And I like Gabe posts, but I don't want to get diaGabetes so I had to limit my Videogum consumption. Even though I don't read the site every day, I still feel like I'm part of the community, like how I still feel like I'm an Arrested Development viewer. I'm not sure how to turn this into constructive feedback? Maybe hire more writers? Or maybe Gabe could write in a different writing voices sometimes and we can pretend it's different writers? Maybe one that's LESS GRUMPY and has an accent? Suggestions!

December 24, 2009 on The 25 Most Commented Videogum Posts Of 2009
I saw that this movie was in The Hunt and I came to this article and was all "Oh no he di'n't!" But then I read it and it turns out that you actually di'n't. So neat. The movie was unpleasant and stuff, but I was thoroughly satisfied with the mystery element of finding out why they all hate her, and then also the fact that it WAS a pretty good reason for everyone in your family to hate you. Also, this movie basically was a movie version of my teenage-self's worst fear of what could possibly happen if I screwed up while baby sitting my brother. I guess a successfully realized nightmare is still a success.

They should've hired a gay consultant because the nicknames "twink" and "hot bottom" are kind of contrary? I mean not really, but both terms sort of imply a bottom, one of them should imply a top. I mean twinks can be tops but it's not something you'd brag about on a porno DVD case is all I'm saying. Uh.
