DeepOmega: what do I want for my birthday
DeepOmega: don't say "roomba" near me

For the record? Anyone posting an “I’m the 99% post” about their fucking college debt goes right in the same pile as tea party people complaining about how white people aren’t in charge of everything any more.
I mean, if I were hanging around New York for the day and I had some time, I...– Tim Burke gets at the heart of my frustration with “protest culture” - the idea that if enough affluent white people get in one place and argue about things, they will convince other people because That’s How Politics Works.
misterhippity: natashavc: My afternoon with Rebecca. So it wasn’t exactly My Dinner With Andre, huh? Reads more like a chapter from a Gary Shteyngart novel.

barthel: This is just a fantastic article. There are a lot of great bits (especially about Abed, near the end) but this was my fav: Harmon, for all the abject misery he feels when he’s making the episodes, savors the show just as much. Community is a series by, for, and about people for whom pop culture is both a near-divine presence and a lens through which to view the world. When a character...

DeepOmega: it also would explain my desire for a cowboy hat
DeepOmega: and a rodeo to attend?

wearegatsby: I have many friends who are in serious debt because of their schooling and I would never intentionally insult them or say anything to belittle their predicament, because I’ve been there, and it sucks. That being said, if I see one more post about forgiving student loans to boost the economy I will… well. Yeah.
Tully: I don't care what anyone says, Hi-Ho Hi-Ho, It's Up Your Arse We Go is a great title.
DeepOmega: really sets the tone
Tully: What do you think the dwarf's names are?

If one more person posts the “do we REALLY NEED jobs?!?” article I’m going to hire a team of jugglers to perform an interpretive juggle about the history of employment.
DeepOmega: it's more like

Writing a thesis about race relations in Con Air.
Listening to Les Mis and wondering what would happen if Jean Valjean’s incredible moral purity went undiscussed, much like his feats of strength do, but every time he has to lift something heavy he does a five minute songologue about it. “This cart is SO heavy / what if I blow out a knee”
someofmybest: les miz as in les miserables?
someofmybest: or lesbian women?
