Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

RT @weathergum: “Earlier this week, in New York at least, the heat broke for a few days and the weather was cool and temperate, and I have to admit, I really enjoyed it. I love summer as much as the next Seth Cohen, but I’m kind of looking forward to, if nothing else, the end of summer’s tyrannical insistence on having fun. You know, sometimes I don’t want to feel anxious that I’m not making the most of my time. Sometimes I like knowing that, in fact, the opposite is true but who cares. And also sweatshirts are soft! That being said, today is just a perfect summer day from where I’m sitting. So we better all get out there and make the most of our time! What are we, jerks?”

Spoiler Alert: You will meet a girl, fall in lover with her, move in with her, get a dog, live together for three years, plan on marrying her and then she will inexplicably dump you on August 23rd.

I wish I would have gotten that fucking spoiler alert. #bittergum

This Week’s Lowest Rated Comment

Steve Winwood | Aug 25th Score:-27
Well I hope you win worst comment of the week because you’re obviously an idiot
Posted in: Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace?

[Ed. note: I’ve noticed, Steve, that sometimes when people give you a hard time in the comments, you will get defensive and insist that giving people a hard time isn’t the way the Videogum comments are supposed to work, and that people should relax and be more accepting of other people’s opinions and jokes and stuff, which I’m tempted to agree with. But then you do shit like this, so, it’s like, which is it going to be, buddy?!]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Posted in: Hot Drinks!

[Ed. note: No offense to wwwest, but this isn’t THAT great of a comment. This image has been posted other places. But it is funny. And mostly, I just wanted to make the point that you guys really slept on “Hot Drinks” this week. That was the jam of the summer. That should have gotten 100k comments. Each one of them being some iteration of “this is the jam of the summer and I just wanted to make sure I didn’t sleep on it.” Streets is shaking heads.]
