Me: (inner monologue) Despite being stuck working on work right now, and feeling very ready to leave school, perhaps I will miss certain aspects of this wondrous institution, where people in the flower of their youth and the first stirrings of real maturity can reach for the highest ideals of—
Stranger/Fraternity Member Standing On The Other Side Of The Ground-Floor Window I’m Sitting Less Than A Foot Away From: [pisses directly on window, aiming straight at my face, while waving at me]
Me: (inner monologue) I wonder what the drive to Los Angeles will be like.
“No baseball fan has to explain his mania to any other baseball fan. They are a fraternity. It is less easy, often it is hopeless, to try to explain it to anyone else. You grow technical, and you do not make sense. You grow sentimental, and you are deemed soft in the head. How, the benighted outsider ask you with no little condescension, can you grow sentimental about a cold-blooded professional sport?”—John K. Hutchens (via randomsox)
Palin’s own comments on this matter (the US making agreements with Russia to limit production of nuclear weapons): “It’s kinda like getting out in the playground, a bunch of kids ready to fight, and one of the kids saying ‘go ahead, punch me in the face, I am not going to retaliate, go ahead and do what you want to with me.’” haha.
“It’s not going to happen. Way too much time it’s been (since the show ended) I mean, there’s so many people involved. Everyone’s doing their own thing, you know. And everybody’s aged. It’s just not going to happen. I’m sure I speak for everybody when I say we’d love for it to happen, we’d love to work on it, but just I don’t think… not going to happen.”—
David Cross - Speaking candidly about why an ‘Arrested Development’ film will never make it into production.
As much as I loved ‘Arrested Development’ I can honestly say I don’t want to see an ‘Arrested Development’ movie. It’s been too much time, and the cast if off doing a multitude of other projects now. Enjoy the DVD of ‘Arrested Development’, but face it, it’s time that fans move on…
Tina Fey is performing AND speaking at MMC this month. Epic wiiiiiin!
***COMEDYGASM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We’re going. END OF STORY.
It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest Tina fan, but I am really sick of awesome stuff happening at Marymount after I graduated. That school was such shit when I was there. We had 8 tables in the cafeteria, they wouldn’t let me start a soccer team (now not only do they have one, but they’re champions or something), and every class was interrupted by construction on the now amazing roof deck. Thanks, Marymount!
Yeah, but my commencement speaker is a banker. Win!*
I turn to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert when I want to know what’s going on in the world, and I turn to Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck when I want to laugh.
I’ve been secretly developing a theory that all major American TV news outlets are the exact opposite of what they claim to be. It fits CNN claiming to be the “Worldwide Leader in News” but actually being dead last in the 24-hour news ratings, Fox News claiming to be “fair and balanced” but actually being a propaganda outlet, and Stewart/Colbert claiming to be the silliest of everybody but actually being the most substantive.
Oh and claiming to be journalistic enterprises but actually being commercial enterprises.
