Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

The TCAs are this week, whatever those are, and today NBC announced that 30 Rock would be doing a live episode this season, which is neat enough, I guess. At the very least it will be something to watch, you know what I mean? We are in the hot depths of the summer doldrums now. Don’t get me wrong, summer is great. One of the best. Easily Top 4 Seasons of All Time. But in terms of day-to-day Internet-related business-to-discuss, summer is the pits. THE PITS! The fact that my ears perk up when there is even 30 Rock NEWS much less an actual 30 Rock EPISODE suggests that this is a moment of DESPAIR. If you think about it, a slow Internet summer is probably the worst thing that has ever happened to anyone in the history of the entire world. Oh well. At least Comic-Con is over.

[Ed. note: Oh man, you guys, how happy is everyone to be home from Comic-Con?! It’s like I need a miserable, over-crowded convention full of nerds and publicists just to get over my miserable, over-crowded convention full of nerds and publicists! Have a great weekend, everyone. We really did it this time.]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Hi There (face here) | Jul 27th Score:23

My grandpa went through a lot of the same things as Amanda Bynes. He didn’t LOVE fighting WWII, and decided he was going to retire at the age of 18 (you can’t keep doing something you don’t love). Then he remembered that that was not actually an option and went on to kill Hitler.

Posted in: Amanda Bynes: UNRETIRED!

[Ed. note: Highlighting this comment is quite literally the least that I can do to honor your grandfather’s noble and historic service to our country, while also honoring the noble and historic service of actress Amanda Bynes. R.I.P. everyone.]
