I’m not worried, cause I think this season has been amazing. I don’t really understand the season 3 hate – yes, a couple of post-hiatus episodes have been average, but no worse than some from previous years. (I’d rank Celebrity Impressions over Art of Discourse or Wine Tasting, for instance.)

Virtual Systems Analysis was one of the best episodes I’ve ever seen of anything.

What I /did/ find insufferable was the Best Picture montage where they edited all the films together to Beethoven, taking all of those scenes completely out of context. Do they do that every year? Cause they should stop! Decontextualization is an extremely dangerous phenomenon in the 21st century! There were 40 tons of shrimp on that boat! Rabbit hats!

So I guess I’m the only one who thought Anne Hathaway was delightful? Oh well, one man’s delightful is another man’s insufferable.

I think America would be much more accepting of us gays if instead of LGBT it was BLGT and it stood for Bacon, Lettuce, and Green Tomato, because that’s what I had for lunch and it was delicious.

“Sorry we’re so late, our travel candle went out around exit 90, so we had to pull over, enter a videogum giveaway contest, wait for our new travel candle to arrive, and then walk to the gas station to buy a lighter because Seth refuses to carry one because he’s trying to quit smoking. But in order to make it up to you, here’s a jade necklace in the shape of New Zealand. It could also pass for Japan if you melted it a little.”

September 14, 2010 on One Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Blu Ray DVD Giveaway To Rule Them Ugh

This album is one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time. Quite possibly the best Of Montreal album yet; they just keep getting better and better. (I seem to be the only person in the world that prefers Skeletal Lamping to Hissing Fauna.) Not that earlier albums like Satanic Panic and Coquelicot aren’t great as well, but in terms of having a consistent set of amazingly well-written songs and imaginative production (helped out by Jon Brion’s pop sheen,) this album is the hands down winner. There is not a single wasted moment on the album. (Well, maybe a millisecond or two here and there.)

My problem with the teabaggers is that they don’t know nearly enough about tea. You’d think if they spent all that time bagging tea they’d at least be able to recommend a nice chamomile, but all I ever get is blank stares and racist pamphlets.

“Give me liberTEA or give me, just the TEA!” – what their slogan should be

Narrowstrife would like it, but the magic Trapper Keeper of the future said Narrowstrife had to not like it, or else the red line would point to a slightly incorrect spot and he wouldn’t become a ballerina politician like the plan said he would.

When I was I kid I was in a car crash and I lost all of my hair. “Don’t Pass Me By” felt like it was written especially for me, and really got me through a tough time. Now I have beautiful long hair and do landscaping for cephalopods. Thanks Ringo!

Ew, um, I would like to distance myself from the unfortunately misogynist turn this thread has taken. “On behalf of…”‘s comments are totally not appropriate, so I’m sorry about that Holly.

That said, saying “I went to college for this so I think I know more than you” is a surefire way to piss off people on the internet. I majored in film, but I’ve learned that some people are going to enjoy Night at the Museum, no matter how much Kierkegaard I quote at them. Sometimes things have benefit beyond the intellectual, so try not to be so condescending towards popular taste.

August 13, 2009 on New Radiohead – “These Are My Twisted Words”

As a Professor in Musicography at Columbia whose research involves studying the Diagraphic Relational Awesomeness of popular Western music, I can state with 97% Scientific accuracy that Radiohead is somewhat awesome.

Also, Holly, you forgot to turn in your term paper on “Variances in Clarinet Construction Materials During the 19th Century”, which I’m afraid forces me to give you an incomplete. Please return your PhD to the Registrar’s Office by Monday, or you will face a $35 fine.

Is Sizzling the name of the Mega Man 2 boss themes cover band they go to do the soundtrack?

It’s either that, or the sound of food cooking has always been like Yellow Magic Orchestra-lite, and I’ve just had my oven on mute.

And I used to review films for my high school newsletter, so I really know what I’m talking about!

(I mean, it’s no Scenes From a Marriage or Spy Kids, but what film is?)
