I just listened to the Andy Samberg episode of the WTF/Marc Maron podcast and Andy said he agreed with Videogum (and Splitsider) the most, when it comes to SNL reviews and I was all, "Yay!" and now I'm all "Awww."

I think old spock's advice was "use what he wants against him" because they did that in both movies. The ol' switcheroo with the beaming things over. Right?

Also RomCom completely ignored the question (all of the questions, actually) which was about how to address the inequality of pay for men/women, not how to hire women or how to work around their dumb kids' schedules. Real talk: LADIES GOTSTA GET PAID. If Martha Raddatz and Candy Crowley only made 72% of what Jim Lehrer made, that would be a motherfucking crime.

October 17, 2012 on The Second Presidential Debate Of 2012 Open Thread
I'm really over Max. I know in a family you are not allowed to be "over" one of your kids, no matter how Aspergers he is, but I am over this kid and his behavior, no matter how much not-his-fault it is. I wish they would put him in a special school somewhere far away and let's get back to the fun stuff. I mean, I don't wish REAL people would do that to their REAL kids with REAL problems. That would be awful. But I'm not watching TV to deal with imaginary people's imaginary kid's imaginary problems. (I'm not a monster, right? I'm allowed to be annoyed with pretend kids?)

I wanted to throw a really awesome birthday/book launch party so I got Andrew WK to play and it seriously was THE MOST FUN. So whatever your opinion of him or whatever music you're into, he is a 100% guaranteed fun machine. Here he is getting stuck in all of the balloons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIRHq2JYHJE

July 5, 2012 on You Should Probably Go See Safety Not Guaranteed ASAP
omg i've been waiting all day for this and now you've said all of my thoughts, as if you were reading my stasis dreams from my hybernation pod. I read this interview (http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1687022/prometheus-secrets-damon-lindelof.jhtml) where Damon Lindelof lets us in on the movie's "secrets" LOLOLOL. I was confused as to why, after only being aware of a substance for a few hours, the robot would want to poison that alcoholic scientist with it. And Lindelof's answer is basically that a hybernating nonagenerian ordered the robot to poison the scientist in the hopes that the scientist would impregnate his girlfriend with an alien baby. BECAUSE WHY? I don't get his end game, really. Guy Pearce is like, "WHATEVER, I'M OLD AND I CAN'T WAIT AROUND TO SEE WHAT THIS SHIT IS OR WHAT IT DOES, JUST GET IT INTO SOMEBODY ALREADY."

At this point, I feel like NBC is fucking with everyone. They know if we think it's going to be canceled everyone will work hard to spread the word and get people to watch. This is all part of their marketing plan. Let's all pool our money and start a new network.

Oh! Please everyone love BFFs (or at least give it a shot!) My friend Steve is on that show ("Rav") and it makes me feel super awesome to know a person on a primetime sitcom - it's like being friends with Fonzie! Also, its good! It has a little first season growing to do, but it's super good. And Quinetta (the adorable 9-yr-old neighbor girl) is the best. (The second best. Go Rav!) Watch it!!!!!!

April 13, 2012 on Charlize Theron’s Birthday Message To Kristen Stewart Is Too Much
Also, this letter is SO CLEARLY written for other people to read. There's no shorthand--everything, every memory, every detail is written out and explained, even though he's speaking to someone who was there when it happened...? I'm officially calling baloney on this whole mess. Both of them should just go to bed.

April 12, 2012 on Duh Aficionado Magazine: Mel Gibson Is Still Mel Gibson
Also, if you read the whole letter, Joe Eszterhas is basically calling Mel Gibson a racist because he hasn't called him back about his script. I mean, he cites a bunch of examples of Mel being racist, but it takes Mel not calling him to discuss his script for Joe to come to the conclusion that Mel hates Jews. Ugh. Gross. Joe Eszterhas sounds like the kind of guy that would call a woman a lesbian because she refused to go out with him. (Not that Mel Gibson isn't racist (duh doy, Joe!) and an idiot and maybe that woman I just made up is a lesbian, but I bet straight or gay has nothing to do with why she turned down Joe Eszterhas.)

April 12, 2012 on Duh Aficionado Magazine: Mel Gibson Is Still Mel Gibson
Yeah it's weird to use someone else's accusations as more proof that he's an asshole. I mean, you sort of don't need more proof, but if you did, this would not be that proof. If anything, it makes me think Joe Eszterhas is an asshole (where previously I could not have been bothered to have an opinion about Joe Eszterhas). Who continues to work with a guy that constantly refers to people as "hebes" and "oven-dodgers"? I don't give a fuck if it means your job or your career--you fucking walk away from that dude and you don't look back.
