I put a pizza in the oven at 1:53. Needs ten minutes, okay, I’ll check it at 2:03.
Glance at clock a few minutes later, it’s 3:02.
Daylight saving time ruined my pizza.
Sometimes when I’m trying very hard to sleep at four in the morning, I get a church hymn stuck in my head.
I haven’t been to church in eight years.
There is hardly a day I watch something and don’t see a actor who was some random person on TXF. When I first watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine I went “Oh, it’s Don’t All The Nuts Roll Down to Florida!” That habit is much more worthy of judgement.
That’s part of why I love first seeing all of it Now as opposed to Then, because there’s so many actors that have been in so many other things and it’s great to sort of retroactively chart their journeys.”Drive” was an especially wonderful episode for this, because a) haha Bryan Cranston was later in a movie called Drive! and b) it finally answered my question of “How did anyone even know Cranston could do like he does?” And also it was extra fascinating reading Gilligan’s reasoning for casting him in “Drive” and the fact that it could totally apply to the reasons for casting him as Walt without a single change.
…I wish I had done more posts like my earlier impressions bit because I had a lot of thinky thoughts like this that are now lost to the void.
No judgement - just impressed! Interested to see how you deal with Seasons 8 and 9, those are the deal breakers for most people.
I’m really curious to see when (if at all) my overall appreciation level for the series drops. It’s kind of astounding that I’m six seasons in and don’t have any episodes that I really abhor, and only a few that I mildly dislike, and quite a few vying for spots on my Top 10.
i can’t believe that as i live and breathe brad bought me tommy wiseau brand underwear
Someday on my deathbed, my children will gather ‘round and say “Dad, what was the greatest moment of your life?”
And I’ll say “I bought JD some Tommy Wiseau underwear.”
where’s the ring?
I’m trying to find this in a ring
swoon of all swoons
On the one hand, I just want to think this is adorable, but on the other hand, who will I drift with if Matt’s drifting with you?
Okay, JD, package incoming. B)
-reclines- buy them for me bradbert
Only if you promise to get a crotch-bust and display them where everyone can see their wonder and glory.
…I actually kind of would buy these for you just to be able to say I bought a pair of Tommy Wiseau’s underwear for a friend of mine.
Finding the official website for The Room makes me feel like an explorer discovering long lost relics. Except it’s not really that long lost because they continue to update it even if it still looks like it’s straight out of the 90s.
Also, you can apparently purchase Tommy Wiseau brand underwear, so that’s goshdamn ballin’.
Holy shit. Holy shit.
Scully from Brooklyn Nine Nine just tried to arrest Scully in The X-Files.
Omg you are on season 6 already what the hey?
Listen, let’s take out that “already” so I can feel a little less shame. IT’S SPRING BREAK, OKAY? AND I JUST GOT TO SEASON SEVEN, SO WHAT.
(Your encyclopedic knowledge of this show will never cease to amaze me, by the way.)
What is the Wales of Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children?
At first it seemed clear that it was (SOMEHOW???) Craggy Island, a fictional island off the west coast of Ireland from TV’s Father Ted.Then Goldie Lookin Chain turned up rapping about Doctor Who and people started drinking Penderyn. That suggested the author had googled ‘Wales Things’. Also, other than the occasional “goddamn”, the locals were generally talking in a kind of English West Country/Generic Hammer Horror Yokel Dialect. A further complication.
Page 93 eventually clears things up with a direct Father Ted reference. The Wales of this book is absolutely Craggy Island. Only remaining mystery is WHY?????
- Acknowledgements page credits the life story of people called Abraham and Gladys for inspiration. Their story involves Wales, perhaps?
- Author wasn’t sure what that is?
- Author really liked Father Ted? Went with that?
Y’know, its been a fair few years since I’ve read it, and this might speak to my failings as a reader more than the book’s failings, but…I somehow didn’t notice at all that it was supposed to be in Wales. Or, if I did, it wholly failed to make that aspect at all memorable.
