"Hey guys, look, we made a pop culture reference! What do you mean that isn't enough, and we need to have a reason to make a pop culture reference, or something new to say about it? It's a pop culture reference! FURBIES!"

I look forward to every nominee being read out by David Blaine who, after unexpectedly removing each new nominee from the pocket of a nearby celebrity, will proceed to stare intently into the camera whilst walking from side-to-side, ignoring the surprised screams that surround him.

October 28, 2011 on The Oscars Are Just Tryna Get Weird We need some Gangsta Trobed up in here. Community was fun but pretty empty of substance. And after Chaos Theory I am going to be looking at most episodes this season and thinking "you could be so much better than this".

Pre-emptively mocking people who haven't even said anything yet. Yep, that'll definitely help encourage discussion!

October 6, 2011 on Heaven Just Got A Little More Steve Jobs
I don't want to make light of Steve Jobs' death. Obviously, that would be a ridiculous thing. My granddad died of pancreatic cancer just a few weeks ago and near the end of his life he looked a different man. There is no excusing, however, some of Apple's business practices (and I'm talking use of child labour in China, notable lack of philanthropy and landfills full of incrementally lower spec electronics that have been replaced due to a calculated obsolescence model), and in response to his death people are going to use it as an excuse to talk about these poor practices. And it is incredibly untactful but with some focus on Apple as a company people need to talk about these things. I know that this is not the right time to have a conversation about the "dark side" of Steve Jobs' legacy, and instead the time to celebrate his life as a visionary and genius in the field of expensive western electronics. But I really, in my heart, can't help but think, when I see people calling Steve Jobs a great man, about some of the awful things that the company has overseen. And yeah, I posted this on Videogum, instead of Facebook or Twitter, because I can't bare to say it in front of people who know me. I'll take the hit of a few downvotes, I guess.

Dman, Joy Behar really held back. "Here's where I think you went wrong, you continued making hideous, inappropriate, offensive comments even after everybody with basic morals realised that you were a disgusting individual with equally disgusting viewpoints" would have maybe reflected the mood a little better

Damn, mis-read the title and assumed this was a reality show about which of two celebrities would be better at psychoanalysis. To be fair, it wouldn't be any worse than a Nicholas fucking Sparks TV show

Russia is a country that only recently declared beer to be alcoholic (beforehand only liquids with a greater than 10% ABV were labelled as alcohol), and whose most well-known political figure of recent years likes to cultivate the image that one of his past-times is wrestling bears. This is not a culture wholly worried about safety procedures
