Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Wow, ninjas. Here are my random thoughts on this Friday afternoon.

1. Guys, what a great week, right? Right? It’s been so good. At least the first four days. I liked how each of the bloggers brought this bit of their personality in and shared these great things that wouldn’t normally have been part of the regular Videogum itinerary, you know? Just FYI, all five of this week’s guest bloggers are on Twitter: Thisismynightmare, BradOFarrell, Gabe Liedman, Becca, and me.

2. We guest bloggers got access to all the tips this week. It was great and terrible. Great because monsters really do send in a lot of great material. Terrible because the tips line is ALSO on so many PR flacks’ mass-email lists and we got so many inane PR puff pieces to sift through it was crazy. I’m looking at you, TMZ!

3. A big thank you on behalf of myself and the other guest bloggers to Justin Street, Scott Lapatine, and Amrit Singh. Those guys did a lot of work behind the scenes to let us be able to do our thing.

4. Monsters of Los Angeles! Monster meet-up tomorrow. (This is an unofficial, non-‘Gum sanctioned event, lawyers.) If you need more details, ask in the comments.
What: Bowling & Karaoke
When: Tomorrow at 8pm

My new standard response when I don’t understand something: “WHO R DAY? SUM SORTA VIDYA GAME?”

Thank you Calvin Munkton for both this new phrase and for your name, which I will use when I want a free stress ball at a trade show, but don’t want to write down my own name.

#1 Ambrose Bierce | Feb 15th Score:-21
One of my jobs is with a SEO firm. I’m not defending it or anything, it’s really not the greatest thing in the world and businesses throw a lot of money its way for really no reason other than idiots on Google tend to give their business blindly to the top results (business, neat!). But if something this obscure seems like something worth ridiculing, I think it’s clear we need Gabe back. I hate to be the rotten apple, or piss on parades but this week is a little like cold coffee: it works for its stated purpose, but its missing the kick and warm comfort you’re used to.

BREAKING CONSPIRACY NEWS

Do you think that it is a coincidence that “Gabe” is on vacation this week? And that we have guest “bloggers”? Of course not! Look at the facts.

1. On Monday, we had “This Is My Nightmare.” We all know that nightmares are subconscious states where our deepest desires are contained by x-rays. What did she post? “I’d hit that”, a post which “turned on” certain sleeper operatives.

2. On Tuesday “Brad O’Farrell” blogged at length about Natalie Portman. Consider her name: Nat A Lie Port Man. He is telling us that in a port, the thugs of the New World Order will begin their invasion of the USA and that this is NOT A LIE! The crying was because the American Dream died.

3. On Tuesday “Soft” “Gabe”, blogged about Roseanne and Dahmner. The letters in their names spell “Fog Harmed One Baste Snare”. I don’t have to tell you what that means.

4. This morning when I woke up, I had on clothes and was not covered in vomit. Yet, last night, when I passed out, I was naked and had messed myself. Who cleaned me up? WAKE UP PEOPLE!

5. Coca-Cola is talking if you listen.
