An actual conversation between two 28-year-old men...
Guy 1: She had to go, man. Had. to. go.
Guy 2: Yeah, it was time.
Guy 1: And she's mad at me about it. Like, coming to me trying to talk to me about it because she's upset or some shit, and I'm like, "Nah, this is done. We're done."
Guy 2: Sometimes you gotta do that. Be firm.
Guy 1: It's like, I have six Pokeballs, ya know what I mean? I got six Pokeballs and there's 150 Pokemon out there. I'm not gonna hang on to my PIDGEY, ya know what I'm sayin? I'm not gonna hang on to my Ratata.
Guy 2: Exactly.
Guy 1: She's on some Professor Oak shit. I'm tryin to be the best.
Guy 2: Even Pikachu had to go eventually, n*gga. You did the right thing.

katherinestasaph: you might want to get it off Google Video. Because if you don’t, Google Video will take it off for you. Permanently. On April 29. Yes, that’s right, Google Video is deleting all its stuff on April 29. Two weeks. Archive Team is collecting some of it, but it doesn’t hurt to save a copy yourself. As well as anything of yours that lives on the Web, because it could abruptly...

I once asked Akira Kurosawa why he had chosen to frame a shot in Ran in a...– Sidney Lumet opened Making Movies with this quote. Normally I’d balk at honoring a guy by quoting him quoting someone else, but this particular quote speaks not only to Lumet’s inspirations but also his skill at framing. Lumet was one of that crowd of post-Strasburg folks who cut their...
Annie Oakley: Fact vs. Fiction
hungryghoast: Fact Fiction She was 150 last year and The Smithsonian put together a decent post on her. I think I have a really good long-form piece in me about how the myths of the west lived on through Walt Disney television programming, and children’s “cowboys and indians” play. Right now my excuse for not pitching or writing it is that I don’t want to have to...
The Norm MacDonald A.V. Club Interview is a great read, and two excerpts have already appeared on my dashboard. But I want to submit a correction: That’s what I loved about Saturday Night Live, man. They didn’t warm up the audience. They didn’t fucking tell the audience to laugh, to Lorne’s credit, so sketches could completely bomb. In any other show, they would lather up the audience and...
Significantly less corny/vibrato-y than most a cappella types though.– Nick Sylvester, vying for a pullquote on the next Duke’s Men of Yale CD.

An underrated singer whose hooks were...
