I really really hope they are named after Dikembe Mutombo

Mispronouncing HAIM is forgivable. Mistaking LMFAO for Jay-Z is not.

2-ish years ago I wandered over to this site from Stereogum out of curiousity. I don’t recall what I read, but I know it wasn’t one of the site’s signature pieces (WMOAT, True Blood recap, etc). Whatever it was, I was really pleased with what I saw. I loved how the writer, probably Gabe, could take this straw-like video and spin it into gold. But what really impressed me was the comments section. Like, holy shit. Not only were there a ton of replies, but they were hilarious! Lord knows anywhere else, it’s an achievement just to have a comments section not full of bigoted assholes.

At first, I was apprehensive about commenting myself. The commenting quality was high, and I didn’t know if I had it in me to hang with the Monsters. But man, I am really glad I took the plunge. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: this is far and away the best community I’ve ever seen on a site, and I’m really glad I can be at the very least a bit player.

I want to thank Scott, Lindsay, Gabe, and OF COURSE Kelly for creatng and maintaning this site, all of which made the internet a less shitty place. I hope that Videogum continues in some fashion, and hope to continue to be a part of this great community!

I will forever feel this way here

I don’t know how he’ll fare, but I think Jimmy Fallon has a good chance of being successful on the Tonight Show. His humor is more relatable to the general public than Conan’s (no offense I <3 him), but he's also built up a solid reputation among younger viewers with all of his music guests and tech-related comedy bits. I don't always enjoy his shows, but he has improved a lot over the past 5 years and do wish him luck with this next step.

Also who's the guy on the right?

Ooooh pumpkin bread, great idea. I think that will be the next thing I make.

Indeed it was. Side note: don’t hold your poop

Not too much going on today. Went to the dealership to get my oil changed, and had a subpar experience in the lounge because:

1) They filter their internet so I couldn’t go to half the websites I frequent
2) They had generic daytime TV on, where I learned the consequences of holding your pee/poop too long. It \ was followed by an episode of The View.

I’m back home and made a breakfast burrito to recover from all of that.

I think he meant cerealprize.com, unless we all want Kelly to review old ass cartoons.

This probably won’t do much to dull the pain, but I found out today that there’s a musician that goes by the name of Leisure Muffin. You gotta enjoy the little things in life, ya know?

That’s great that you’ve got something else lined up! Not to sound like your Vgum dad, but I was worried about what your next steps were.

I read Stereogum. One day I looked at the orange button on the left and thought “I wonder what happens when I click on it…”

So I accidentally clicked on my Videogum bookmark when I meant to click on my saved recipes. I will now go into the kitchen to make a sad sofrito. =(

I’m sorry but every time someone mentions the song title Just The Way You Are I will always think Billy Joel

I assume they’re going for the Alexander Luthor Jr look?
