Recent college grad of Bard College. Majored in music (jazz performance and composition), with a heavy concentration in film. Currently stuck in the middle of New Jersey because loleconomy.

Comments from Brosworth

I feel like what's been getting so overlooked in the narrative about TKoL is that the two pairs of songs they released soon after ("Supercollider"/"The Butcher" and "The Daily Mail"/"Staircase") are brilliant. So while it remains to be seen if they can still release a whole, cohesive album of great material, their ability to write amazing songs and music has been pretty consistent throughout. Also, I really hope "Burn the Witch" (and "Spectre") is an indication that this is going to be a strong Jonny Greenwood album because I feel like they've been almost intentionally holding back on his incredible skills as a composer/arranger over the past decade.

Phew, okay. For a moment I thought they had actually nominated that god damn Sarah Palin "documentary" The Undefeated, and I was about to throw down. I'm still going to throw down though because this list is garbage.

Really? Because when they did that long buildup before the reveal, I was definitely shouting at the TV "Oh jesus christ it's going to be Sophia, isn't it? It's gonna be Soph-OH GOD DAMN IT IT'S SOPHIA." All I wanted was for somebody to finally off Shane, and instead all I got was killing the girl who was already essentially dead the entire fucking season. ugh

I can answer that! It was SOGOOD.YESSSS Annie crowdsurfed while playing guitar on the final encore song ("Your Lips Are Red"), and I almost had a seizure from the ridiculous light show numerous times. And the potential knowledge that I was also in the same space as David Byrne AND Kelly makes me even happier.

My only regret is that it's Friday so it's unlikely this will make it to lowest comment. Relationships and sex are discussed in everyday life, and it's discussed in the military because they're human beings who are placed into incredibly stressful situations and it's something to talk about that isn't completely shitty. You're not going to stop it. Thus if heterosexuals are talking about it, then homosexuals deserve the same right to talk about a significant other. "He’s right – it’s a volunteer organization – so if you can’t go in without being all activist and shoving your preference down people’s throats, then don’t do it." The fact that you think this is something that happens tells me that you have no fucking idea what you're talking about and have completely ignorant views of gay people.

Hahaha, nobody actually gives a shit what you say or think, Rick Santorum. I'm so glad you're going to die in complete obscurity and your only legacy will be that nobody can google your disgusting, hate-ridden name. Fuck you and every single one of you people. You are a dying breed, and I can't wait to dance on your fucking graves. The end.

All I know is that when a pollster asked a focus group about Rick Perry murdering a man who was later shown to be likely innocent, a human being actually responded verbatim, "I like that. It takes balls to kill an innocent man." I rest my case (my case being that this world is made of garbage and needs to be terminated).

This sounds like every social anxiety I experienced at college combined with my extreme hatred of touching things and people on the subway mashed into one giant nightmare-fueled panic attack. I would say I'm too old for this at 24, but that's not the problem. I just fucking hate these people.

So this is basically my puppy. He's around this size, equally as fluffy and adorable, and goes around latching onto people's limbs and gnawing on them. Clearly we did not do a good job in checking where he came from because he is obviously actually a Russian bear cub. Good to know.

So, judging by the last couple of robot uprising posts, the plan for the real robot uprising is to bake us ALL the delicious goods and make us all so obese that we will be unable to resist when the robots finally make their move. Looks like some robots have seen WALL-E a few too many times.

This is pretty much exactly how I felt. Full disclosure: I LOVE Charlie Kaufman and think Malkovich, Adaptation, and Eternal Sunshine are all A+ films and not overrated. I was really intrigued by Synecdoche and liked it, but I really think Kaufman needed someone to reign him in just a little bit so it didn't become so overwhelmingly surreal by the end. If everything is surreal, nothing is surreal. Also, once again and forever - HEREAFTER

Am I the only one who was really hoping at the end that they would somehow forget that the cheesy epilogue existed and wouldn't include it? Because seeing Radcliffe and co. Benjamin Button'd was actually more terrible than I could have imagined. But other than that it was fun!

And here I thought we were in for an entire day of penguin and fart videos (maybe penguin fart videos as well). Palin is a nightmarish clown, but the media is far more interested in her than the public is at this point. Even most of the people who view her favorably as a person don't want to have anything to do with her as a potential presidential candidate and have moved onto other nightmarish clowns like Bachmann. Getting angry at her like this at this point is just playing into her schtick of doing things to gain attention and then play the victim whenever someone criticizes her. Granted, not writing about her on a pop-culture comedy blog isn't going to change anything, but it's still occupying space and mental energy that could be put towards much worthier things (ie penguin fart videos).

Been a long time since I've bothered trying to nominate a film, but I will start doing this more often if need be. HEREAFTER. I don't even know how to describe how bad it is. It's one of those movies that thinks it's saying something so meaningful and big but in fact says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING. I didn't like Gran Torino when I saw it, but after Hereafter Gran Torino looked like a goddamn masterpiece.

I do have to give respect to Chris Wallace for knowing how to rest his case, but unfortunately what he rested his case upon was comparing viewers of a major news network to A FUCKING COMEDY SHOW. Pretty sure that's an automatic loss no matter how you look at it.

I think my biggest complaint was just how I felt at the end of the film. I was thoroughly entertained, but I didn't feel anything beyond that. Had this just been any old summer blockbuster I would've been perfectly satisfied with that, but I think what a lot of people are feeling is that because it had been billed so heavily as Abrams's "Spielberg" film it came up short specifically because it was missing the human touch that Spielberg nailed so perfectly in those films we love. Pretty Okay 8
