Why must we sully drag queens' good name with this insulting Kesha comparison? Let's call a spade a spade: she looks like an unbathed brain-damaged floozy playing dress-up without a mirror. Drag queens are classier than that!

My favorite thing about Videogum is how you take inane new stories, uncontrollably pointless PR nonsense, and essentially the lowest dregs of pop culture, and you recontextualize it in a way that's not annoyingly academic, but does offer a sense of insight that is found on no other blog. I appreciate when you go beyond the mere presentation of what is awful and what is sublime in the inescapable stream of media, to say something simultaneously profound and comical. So yeah, not much of a suggestion, just more of that please :)

Stop it, Internet. You're giving me way too much Heene family footage to sort through. Wake me up when the true crime documentary comes out, or at least the Law & Order: SVU dramatization.

They spent "$15 million" putting Levi Johnston in front of a white background with his bodyguard/talent agent, and then making approximately 4 assistants lackadaisically shout "Levi..." off camera. The math logic stopped at pop culture + sex + pistachio nuts = all the money

Sharon and Fred seem sincerely rad. I've got nothing snarky to say, just giving snaps.

A spoonful of bubblegum makes the pizza go down, just as a heaping of pop culture makes the despairing sociological analysis go down.

The autumn equinox isn't for another week. Maybe death will throw us a bone and take care of Glenn Beck, or at least Jay Leno.

Dear people who missed the humor in Alex's comically oversimplified description of Sal and Don's London Fog conversation and it's obvious subtle double entendre: you fail.

By the way, the Internet totally failed to report on a Law and Order episode that aired earlier this year, based on the JT Leroy scandal, but with a charcter named SWEETY-NESS and supporting guest spots from Heather Matarrazo and Vivica A. Fox. And Jeremy Sisto uttering the words, "You're nothing but a truck stop twink." Yes, that happened.

Oh, come on. You know you love it! If it weren't so fun to begin with, what would you put in your recaps? It's not trying to be a serious drama. Vampires... they're funny. That's why we watch!

I drove 80 miles out to Lancaster on Sunday and the theater REFUSED to show the film! They claim that the projector for that screening room (of their 22-screen theater) is broken and cannot be repaired. I'm seriously on the verge of tears! :(

I can't wait for the death of print if it means the end of patronizing, soulless, badly argued culture watchdog pieces from Time Magazine in which they inevitably make up a catch-all term for a supposed "trend" taking over America, like PORN CREEP. Can Soulja Boy please appropriate that as the title of new dance that sweeps the nation and end this conversation before it starts? Time's coining of "Porn Creep" is just as much intended to "go viral" with the message "Time Magazine knows what's up," but for an older, more confused and scared market than Bud's ads are targeted towards. It's just as much of a desperate jab for attention, using the titillation factor of porn as an entree to brand loyalty. I feel like the porn industry are the real victims of exploitation in all this fake controversy.

The Black Eyed Peas are engaged in a dangerous game with the Pussycat Dolls to see who can include the most product placement in their music videos. Really, Black Eyed Peas, you're hawking the HP Mini-Note 2133? Also, I thought was supposed to be the new Bono in terms of self-aggrandizing rock star liberalism-- why is he forcibly removing the clothes from a lesbian during a makeout sesh?! Rape! Mazel tov!
