This place is already filling up with Donna Darkos of love and support, but I have to throw mine on the pile. Videogum seems like a pretty insignificant place on the surface, but Gabe, your insight and wit helped to provide a community that gave me hope for the internet, and for people in general. So thanks. And good luck.

Gabe, it's fine that you're leaving (no, it isn't), but do you have to take your ball with you? Trampoline accidents were literally all we had left.

At $250, Zach will record "15 seconds of me saying whatever you want". Once this gets kicked (to prevent accidentally helping ensure this gets made), can we collectively pitch in $250 to force Zach Braff to apologize to us?

They get all their religious knowledge from a shared copy of Passion of the Christ on DVD, which nobody realizes is actually a mislabeled copy of 300.

I'm also glad she didn't end up with anyone in the end, but it raises the question: what exactly was the purpose of her childhood friend, then? I can't think of one significant thing that he did. Does every plot with the hint of a romance need to throw in a third character now, just to make sure everyone is adequately tortured? Not that they spent any time developing a relationship between any two characters in this movie.

One of the ballerinas played by Carmen Electra will be dressed as an Avatar alien for some reason, and is killed by falling sandbags that turn out to be sacks of money. James Cameron runs on stage and scoops up the bags of money, yelling "I'm the king of the world!" before running off. There will be a scene where all the characters are disoriented because the movie is in 3D. Also: a staggering amount of 3D boners.

Replace Dino with a live-action cat, who will be very large because all the other characters will be animated and thus small. Let the cat write the episodes.

It's a joke, but this is kind of a good point. People watched the Muppets to 'feel good' amidst all the heavy-handed seriousness or plain old bad quality garbage going on around it. We've just found a much more efficient way to get our dose of that. The Internet has become the new escape where we can get that instant shot of pleasure from watching a cat video or a two-year old falling down the stairs or whatever, that we might have once got from a show like the Muppets (that was as much slapstick as it was sentimental). It's just in a format now where every 90 seconds we get to choose what form that entertainment takes. It removes the cultural significance that something like the Muppets had because none of us is watching the same thing, but then we create communities like Videogum to showcase what we're watching in a way that we can share and enjoy them together, and develop them into our own form of pop culture. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, we are our Muppets. Or, if you're looking for a more long-form equivalent actually related to the medium being discussed, how about Pixar?
