Really, really hoped somehow this wouldn't happen after all. Thank you so much, Kelly. I think I wished your recaps into existence and I will cherish them forever. I'm sorry to repeat myself, but: Videogum has been my favorite site for years and, even now, I treasure so much about this place. Three of the smartest and funniest writers alive. The cleverest and sweetest group of bloggies (they're like groupies, don't worry about it) in existence. I will continue to keep a videogum tab open in my browser in your honor. I just can't keep it open to this page, because it'll be too sad.

Ugh, my day has been boring but okay so I have nothing to say, but I can't not participate in the last one! Ugh. I already spilled most of my feels about this horrible death, though I am glad that we are all making efforts to connect with each other in other ways. But... that doesn't make this okay. Not even remotely. Two old favorites (post + comments combined, very high ROI in the LOLK): http://www.videogum.com/163521/duh-aficionado-magazine-nicholas-sparks-is-a-jerk-and-an-idiot/duh-aficionado-magazine/ http://www.videogum.com/453002/quote-of-the-day-mark-wahlberg-would-have-stopped-911/top-stories/

Wow, this is heartbreaking. I don't remember what brought me here originally and I don't comment super often, but I just love it all so much. I'm just now watching season 4 of Breaking Bad and my favorite part (of BREAKING BAD, you guys) is reading Kelly's recaps and the comments, you know, from 2011 or whatever. I always have a videogum tab open in my browser. When I'm having a bad day I'll go re-read a Gossip Girl recap or WMOAT or Friendly Chat (or Friday Fight). Everyone here is funny and sweet, and how is that even possible? On the INTERNET? I remember a few years ago there was a commenter having a really bad time (like really bad), and everyone was just so thoughtful and supportive to her and she checked back in to say that she was pulling through. That, to me, encapsulates so much about this place. That + so much laughter. Thank you all so much. I hope we can work together to prevent the worst from happening, but if the next iteration of videogum doesn't include Kelly: dear Kelly, you deserve some kickass job and all of the accolades in the world. The same to everyone else who has made this site the amazing corner of the internet that it is.

Anyone else think he should play Nic Cage in a biopic? OR... that Nic Cage should play Jamie Casino in the Jamie Casino biopic??

February 3, 2014 on This Lawyer’s Ad Was The Best Super Bowl Ad
yeah, badideajeans pretty much covered it, but add to that Atlanta's already bad traffic problems and everyone fleeing to get home at the same time. I think people mostly slept in grocery stores because they couldn't get anywhere else -- the roads were more gridlocked than they were dangerous. Some people just stuck it out and stayed in traffic for 12 hours or more.

are you kidding?! Not even a little bit sarcastic! That's a killer story! I'm glad the universe planted the lawyer next to you so you could think less about being terrified, and I'm even more glad that you shared the story with us. Guy Fieri has a lawyer??? (I mean, of course he does, but he has a lawyer whose big-name client is... Guy Fieri. It's almost a hilarious story right there! That guy has to conduct serious business with Guy Fieri!) Guy Fieri's birthday parties are 80's movie costume parties????? Just incredible.

My day was okay, but complicated by a crazy thing that happened to me on Monday! Over the weekend I was staying with my friend-man. Monday morning I went outside to discover that my car, which I had parked in front of the house as I usually do, had disappeared! Vanished. I called the police and said "I think I'm reporting a stolen vehicle, maybe?" (confused because my car is probably worth like 500$ tops and there are lots of nicer cars to steal on that street). I gave the make and model of the car and the police said "Oh, hmm, we impounded that car, actually." They sent a very nice police officer to come explain to me what had happened. APPARENTLY over the course of Sunday night my car became self-aware and propelled itself down AND ACROSS the street, into another car 3 houses down! The neighbor had woken up to discover my car nestled into his car and called the police, who were unable to contact the owner of the ghost-driven vehicle because my license plates are from another state. And they knocked on a few doors to inquire, but not the one I was staying at, because my car had strayed too far. So they impounded it. I recovered my car and the damage to both seems minimal, so I guess everything is okay, but that was a weird day!

Kelly, if you haven't read it, you might like George Saunders' book of short stories, Persuasion Nation. His vision of the future mirrors yours.

Today I went to the bank for the third time for yet another attempt to complete a very simple task (open an account for the small, nonprofit organization of which I was recently appointed treasurer). TURNS OUT THIS IS NOT A SIMPLE TASK. These are hours of my life that I will never get back. Today's attempt was even less successful than the first two, and now I have to hunt down some documents that do not exist to prove that my organization is real and not, I dunno, something I made up so that I could embezzle less than $10K in a very stupid and obvious way. UGH, BANKS.

that's super great about your kids! This was my first semester teaching too, I feel like we are grad school soul sisters! Except that I was thrilled with my final exam grades for the opposite reason -- they were low and thus helped keep the class GPA down. Because we are under intense pressure to "fight grade inflation" which translates to "keep grades low in an intro-level class, because that makes tons of sense." anyway, cheers!
