Upvoting like every comment even though it just doesn’t matter anymore. If that isn’t emblematic of my time here, I don’t know what is.

I’ll miss all you guys.

Be honest, you had to look up if That 70s Show is still in syndication. It is…. but at 7:00am on ABC Family. But hey, that counts!

I probably won’t ever get the chance to post this on this blog with any sort of germaneness, so with that said. RAY LEWIS GIFS.

I’ve never been that funny. Well, at least, I thought I was funny until I started commenting here. I am merely a Peter Dinklage to you Manute Bol’s of comedy. But much like Peter, I’ve got a huge heart and, it has only grown in knowing all of you here. Gabe, you’ve been so accepting, more so then anyone need be, in the weird cast of characters here. I know, I’ve personally aired on the side of pestering to promote some meeting I was working on with Chris or why an image wasn’t showing up, but you were patient and you understood how much this small site meant in the lives of us commenters.

I’m proud to have met all of the truly wonderful people I have here. I’m proud to say I’ve been to a wedding of a person I met on this site and welcomed like family. We joke about moms and dads, but the camaraderie, the friendship, the love — that’s what a family is. Vin Diesel would be so proud of us.

To sum up, I’m so genuinely thankful for what you’ve built here, I’m proud to stick around here with all the wonderful people I’ve met and read, and my life has changed forever in the positive having known your work.

Thanks,
JD, aka myfakeironlung, aka too many nicknames which aren’t my real name.

Between this and LEP Bogus Boys “Commas,” it’s a big week for rap game punctuation.

Also, people are still commenting on theGarden State WMOAT , which is so great. A gem that series was. Whatever happened to it?

April 22, 2013 on The 2013 Unofficial Videogum Monster Meet Up In Chicago

This was very much the best time I’ve had in such a long time. Non-stop fun with Monster friends all weekend. I seriously had so many Topher Graces it was a problem, I had 3 more than they charged me for. YES this was a real drink only for the meetup.

This isn’t a statement towards the size of Christina Hendricks chest, is it?

I figured you were helping Seth MacFarlane write his material. I felt no Hugh Jackman pee jokes was a rare miss for you. Les Piz. It’s right there in front of you.

I mean, I agree you have. The benefit of the doubt is certainly with you here. That’s very true. But even as someone who’s admitted, as you have, qualifying your statements coming from “a white, middle class man” who is aware of the privilege that you have, it’s still worth mentioning that along with that privilege there’s an unknowable pain and burden that others must carry. I believe in your heart of hearts that you know this to be true, and I don’t think I’m telling you anything that you don’t know, nor am I suggesting you walk on eggshells. Just as someone who doesn’t hold this privilege, when others’ plights, are even slightly made to seem lesser than, it cuts a bit. Look, you’re a smart man who has been very kind, to me personally even, who obviously crafted this with great passion and the right message, and ultimately what I object to was a footnote, but it just seems counter to what you’re trying to say. I’m just speaking to where I’m coming from.

Pardon if I seem over-reacty, but I can’t help but have a problem with the diminishing of “Cunt” vs. other epithets. It sort of lessens the exact struggles of the women who are being called this word. I’m not suggesting that Gabe feels that women’s epithets are causes are not as dire, hateful, or important than other disenfranchised groups, but that strikes a tone in me that did not sit right. I felt it was worth saying.
