This was supposed to be a good day. I got to take a glorious midday nap and everything. Then I woke up and saw the giant shit sandwich that was this news. Just the worst news.

I have Associate Editor's Choice from Mary (remember her?), and nothing else. Which clearly means Gabe and Kelly always hated me. I totally feel like Buster up there. Fuck it. I ride in the front seat now.

Long-time lurker, occasional commenter here. I think the thing I saw first on Videogum was a Mad Men recap...? Back when those were still happening, ya know? 100 years ago. I remember at one point I became really obsessed with that show and I was already reading Best Week Ever (RIP) and AV Club, TWOP, etc. Somehow, a random clicked link brought me here. I'm having a hard time remembering the specifics, which can only mean one thing: it was magic/destiny that brought me on board and possibly magic/destiny that created this blog in the first place. I am generally a cynical, emotional black hole of a person who hates everything and everyone (not really), and I can say without hesitation that this site is special. Gabe and Kelly (and others) are brilliant, yes, and they did an outstanding job here every day, but what really makes this place great is the community of intelligent, kind, open-minded folks that visit and comment here every day. I mean, how is it possible that not one youtube-caliber asshole has sneaked past and made us all reconsider our choice to keep coming back? I really can't explain that. It's a miracle. Videogum IS a miracle, and I will forever be ruined for other similarly themed blogs.

Oh no, was this bad? I just meant 'cause, like, you know, 50 has been arrested before and Meryl is like a feisty outlaw in general! Sorry, guys! I'm not so good at the appropriate humor sometimes.

What people don't know is that these two go way back, having spent a night together in Osage County Jail.

Am I wrong, or is Lindsey Weir the first of Don's mistresses to dump HIM??

OMG OMG OMG OMG! Making it into the Monster's Ball for the first time (as a very infrequent commenter of late, no less) is wayyyyyy more gratifying than I ever imagined it would be! Thank you, Mary! Thank you, Videogum! I really wish that I had taken the time to welcome you in the "Welcome Mary" post, but I am a public school teacher and have LITERALLY no time for fun things. Man, this really cancels out my whole shitty week.

November 30, 2012 on Who Is Television’s Handsomest Dad?
You guys, what follows is a true story, but take it with a grain of salt because my memory is pretty shoddy: Once when I was 18 and being driven home from college by my dad, we stopped for gas in northern California and I saw Rider "Shawn Hunter" Strong AT THE NEXT GAS PUMP putting gas in a Toyota Corolla! Except I'm not sure it was a Corolla, and I'm not sure how old I really was (but some kind of teenager because upon spotting him I instantly attempted to make myself look as cute and aloof as possible, should he happen to look my way), and I'm also not sure where, geographically, the alleged (ha!) gas station was. But the important part of the story is all true! Side note: My freshman year of college I took General Psychology and scoffed at the notion that the test subjects in memory experiments scored so poorly but now I get it. I get it. #old

And why Hank? I love Hank! Non-ironically! Even though I really, really wanted him to DEA his way into the know rather than let some lame damning evidence [literally] catch him with his pants down.

That hand kiss DESTROYED me. Also, Joan's face when Don came to her house in the retrospect. Joan's face while unzipping herself. ALL THE JOAN FACES. Let the record show that Matt Weiner is the only man routinely invited to stab me in the fucking heart. #girlswithhighselfesteem

Peggy will rise through the ranks at CGC and eventually become Don's rival and inevitably blow him out of the water (but not right away) because NEW 60s VS. OLD 60s EVERYONE!

Yes, OK, Pete, Roger, terrible men abound. BUT WHAT ABOUT LANE???? He's supposed to be Joan's friend, yet all he does in this episode is try to save his own ass at Joan's expense. I think I was disappointed in his reaction most of all. Pete is a shit and Roger I think felt like he had no right to oppose it if Joan was, as Pete said, "amenable" (because Pete misleadingly lead everyone to believe that, because Pete is a shit). But Lane is just being a pathetic coward about this whole embezzlement thing and he's grasping at straws to keep himself safe from scrutiny. Yes, his suggestion resulted in a better "deal" for Joan (YUCK!), but he didn't have her best interest in mind when he pitched it. I hope Joan finds him out and exposes his ass now that she's a partner

I don't know, I thought that Frederick Douglas costume was adorbs and nerdy and innocent. Does that make me a racist? Even though I have black friends? Guys?

Andrew Rannells was on an episode of Girls a while back and he was HILARIOUS. I love him now.

I was prepared to hate this show on principle, then I started watching it and begrudgingly liked it but continued to talk shit about how I liked it "in spite of my better self" AND THEN I saw the episode where Lizzy Caplan hates Jess for the same reasons I was hating the show and I felt bad for being such a dick about it. And then Jess said my favorite of her lines, something like "And now I'm gonna pay this fine, and my checks have baby farm animals on them, bitch!" So now I just love the show because it's great. Yay!
