“But getting a consensus on the new titan of ticket sales is tricky. When adjusted for inflation,Avatar ranks 21st among all movies, well behind the all-time winner in today’s dollars, Gone with the Wind. The 1939 classic would have grossed $1.5 billion if tickets were $7.30 apiece back then as they are now.” - USA TODAY It has always bothered be that we obsess over revenue and...
benzado: nicolemarietherese: “I just want you guys to know that I think each of you is really very special. And someday someone else very special is going to see that and you’ll ditch the shitty relationships you’re in now and fall in love. I believe that. Valentines Day is going to mean something to you too someday. Don’t give up.” — Terry, campaigning against a Valentine’s Day practice for...
I don’t write jokes. I never really tried. I started the Obamarama tumblr because of the picture of Obama with a lightsaber. That got me looking and I realized how many photos of the President are just interesting. (I fully admit that I am an Obama fan and that colors my viewpoint). So I just started collecting them. Then I started to add captions when they occur to me. Which is sort...
James Bobin, co-creator of Flight of the Concords... →
1) This is rumor and with some big mights (also apparently offered a Apatow-scripted Wiig 2) Concords are exactly the sort of cameos I’d like to see 3) Simon Pegg better have a cameo too. This is unrelated to the rumor, but a Pegg-Gonzo scene would be to die for.

MC Skat Kat and Benjamin Franklin vie for power in the Assembly.

Mass Effect 2 - Exhaustive (Story So Far)
So I bought Mass Effect 2 (a video game for those of you who don’t give crap about these sort of things). Inspired a bit by Nicole Is Watching Buffy, I am going to chronicle the hell out of it. The WILL contain spoilers… which means the audience will be very small -people who have already played it (it came out today) people who are interested in video games but don’t care...

State of the Union Drinking Games: Edition One
filigree: I am searching for the best SOTU drinking game criteria to hobble together my own list. Here’s some suggestions, if you want to play along: (sources: 1, 2) Drink every time President Obama mentions Ted Kennedy. Drink more if the camera shows Scott Brown.
