I saw B.B. at NOLA Jazz Fest last year. I was so excited to see him, but his performance was really painful to watch. He had an hour long set, didn't make it out onto the stage until about 15-20 minutes in, talked for another 10 minutes before playing his first note, and then only played three songs (he played parts of three songs, where he would play for about 30 seconds, pause and talk to the crowd, play another 30 seconds and then let his band take over). The man is a legend, and at 87 years old (at the time) he had already gone way beyond any expectations one could reasonably have for an artist, but it was still a depressing performance to say the least. Even so, anyone who could boo an 88 year old legend has no soul.

WHAT??? I was out of the country for the last week and Gabe left VG? NOOOOOO! This is terrible news to come back to. We will miss you, Gabe! Thank you for all the laughs, for making me think, and most importantly, for getting me through work each day. I couldn't have done it with you and VG. Please come back and visit from time to time!

"I saw a commercial on late night TV, it said, 'Forget everything you know about slipcovers.' So I did. And it was a load off my mind. Then the commercial tried to sell me slipcovers, and I didn't know what the hell they were." - Mitch Hedberg The best.

I know this isn't winegum, but Gabe, I would really love it if you tore that story apart for us.

Maybe he should have hedged his bet though. It might have turned out better for him.

Wait, he was a ghost? I thought they just bought a new dad at the store and put him on the roof to take him home, like a Christmas tree.

It's controversial because it turns out the snake wasn't even real! Someone just made it up to play a cruel prank on Manti!

I don't really care about Videogum not mentioning the Manti Te'o story. I wasn't expecting to hear about it here anyway. It was the second half of saturnian's comment that I agree with: how the drop in comments probably has a lot to do with the lack of recaps and absence of WMOAT. Like you said, I'm here for the movies, TV, and puppies on trampolines, but it seems like a lot of posts now are more focused on making fun of celebrities than on the actual movies and TV.

Either way, we need more recaps and less Lindsay Lohan. There's way too much celebrity gossip here lately.

You either wake, a hero, or sleep long enough to see yourself become the villain.

- Why's he sleeping, Dad? - Because we have to wake him. - He didn't do anything wrong. - Because he's the hero Iowa City deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll wake him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a sleepy guardian, a snoozing protector. A dormant knight.
