#2 Frank Lloyd Wrong | Jul 18th Score:52

I bet that Kevin Scarecrow (R-DE), Franklin Penguin (R-IA), Lamar Riddler (R-OR), and Ras al Ghul W. Joker IV (R-NM) are breathing a sigh of relief they didn’t run this year.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: I guess people just don’t like kiddie porn. That’s my only guess here.]

So every website is Thought Catalog now?

Posted in: Top 10 Asshole Boyfriends In Movies

[Ed. Note: Hey! So let’s talk about this! Some people seemed to be DEEPLY bothered by Emily Gordon’s “listicle” post yesterday. Guys! We’re going to be OK! On the one hand, I totally understand people’s aversion to “listicles,” on the other hand Emily’s post was totally light and fun and this website publishes a dozen non-“listicle” posts a day. You can literally wait 45 minutes and there will be something new for you to complain about. None of this is to denigrate or dismiss the work that Emily put into her post, either. She is one of a number of new freelancers we’re excited to introduce to you guys in the coming weeks and we are lucky to have her. As far as the expressed concerns that you are somehow going to lose this thing that you love, or that her post makes Videogum “less special,” all I can tell you is that’s nonsense and you need to relax. A blog is a blog is a blog. Videogum is a blog. Moreover, Emily’s post generated one of the more popular discussion threads of the week, and that alone is worth the price of admission (FREE!). As time goes by, Videogum will change, because that is how things work, and some of the change might be change that you like, and some of the change might not be in the direction that YOU want it to go, but you will always have a home here, even if you hate your new home. Please stick with us and let’s see where we end up. Probably jail, definitely the grave. This ought to be fun!]
