Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

For a short week, this was actually one of the “newsier” weeks in awhile, at least as far as OUR KIND of news is concerned. Obviously, our lives have been straight DOMINATED by one thing in particular. But double on top of that all the way, there was Lindsay Lohan’s space jail sentence, Rachel Bilson’s self-absorbed media circus visit to the gas station, the announcement of the 2010 Emmy Award nominees, “I’m Not Here To Make Friends” Day, Bruce Willis released his cologne line, and, of course, Jeremy Piven finally set the record lies about his lies, like a liar. And the week’s not even done yet! This weekend: Predators, and the World Cup final. So intense. What does it mean?!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated Comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated Comment, the winner of the Ladies of the Daily Show Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice:

Prediction for next week’s Balls: Steve Winwood will A) Get Lowest vote or B) Someone talking about Steve will make the Top Five. Either way I’m happy.

Also I present another episode of Steve Winwood Classics:

What a weird looking kitchen.

Posted in: The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: The Ladies Of The Daily Show

[Ed. note: As you can see, there is no special placement for the winner of this week’s Women of the Daily Show caption contest because Chareth Cutestory also had the top rated comment for the whole week (maybe of all time? 371 is so many!) and it is a funny comment, so let’s give it the recognition it deserves. Congratulations, Chareth Cutestory. You earned it. Also, I had not seen Notsewfast’s M. Night Shyamalan IMDB comment, but it is amazing, and I actually had to go look to see whether or not it was true (NO SPOILERS, TWIST ENDING!) and in either case it would have made a good Editor’s Choice but instead will have to satisfy itself with fourth best comment of the week, because that is how ratings and science work. FACT.]

really?! that show is like a golf cleat in the eye + bullets….i’m pretty sure buffy makes you sterile. how long did you watch….oh wait, nevermind. it doesn’t make you sterile. you just won’t get laid if you watch it
Posted in: Twilight: Eclipse Open Thread, And A Temporary Goodbye To Twilight

[Ed. note: You could have predicted this one. Just in general, people don’t like to hear someone say that a thing they enjoy and that feels important and valuable to them is garbage, but it seems to me like Buffy fans are especially sensitive about this. Perhaps because they have to hear it so often? I’m not saying that as any kind of political endorsement of either position. I have no opinion. I’ve never seen the show, but I have friends who love it, and I’ve always been curious, I just don’t have the time. Also I am 103 years old. But it seems like a show that is pretty open to accusations of being garbage, at the same time that it is a show that is fiercely beloved. So, what I’m saying is, you could have predicted this one.]

This dude definitely makes my : ) go all the way across the sky.

Posted in: Double Rainbow Guy Interview Almost As Good As Double Rainbow Guy’s Video

[Ed. note: Like a double rainbow itself, it is only a matter of time before the excitement over Double Rainbow Guy fades into nothingness. And perhaps that is how it should be. Just because a pleasure is ephemeral doesn’t make it any less valuable. But what a pleasure he has been! Let’s just be here in this moment with him, no rainbo.]
