When the one girl says “get a loife” I literally swoon
A year ago, David Ehrlich, who’s one of my very favorite film critics, put up a video he’d cut together of his top 25 films of 2012. Opinions on the list itself aside, it’s a wonderfully edited thing that gets you excited about cinema. When I watched it, I realized just how out of the loop I had become—I considered myself a movie snob and yet I didn’t even recognize some of the stuff on the list. So, weirdly, I credit watching Ehrlich’s video last year to getting me back into art/foreign/experimental cinema in a big way.
All this is preamble to saying he put up his 2013 video, it’s totally awesome, and you should go watch it/spread it around.
Every couple has inside jokes, and ours consisted of three measures of 1950s traditional gender roles; one measure of “Borat”; half a measure of saccharine, shaken vigorously, served in a highball with a Krazy Straw — because, why not?

Pilot makes me laugh and cry more than anyone
my favorite game is “which recent tweet of mine will my mom awkwardly scold me for during thanksgiving dinner?”
Ooh I play this game all the time too except usually it’s when I tweet about drinking
The middle one (seasons 2-4). Weird stop-motion style. Vague attempt at explaining premise. Tamara dances as giant CDs fly past her arms, almost shredding her to pieces. Roger holds up flowers as big as his tiny weak body (CLEVER USE OF PERSPECTIVE). Tim Reid looks like the fucking President of Sex, winks at camera, David’s heart melts.
Season one. Premise CLEARLY explained. Weird ink cartoons. Horrifying photoshopped baby-heads wobble around demonically. Helpful text explains “We look alike but, we’re different,” in case audience is unaware of what identical twins are. Jackée summons her credit out of thin air like a witch. Reid does too, but whatever, he has a dumb cardigan on. This thing is a full fucking minute long.
Seasons five and six. Tim Reid has an orange sweater tied around his neck. He uses it to block Tamara’s SEXUALITY. Marques Houston is suddenly hot. Those two other lame guys are in the season six version. I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS ANYMORE.
A Special Sandwich Night Message From Andrew “Hot Dog” Parrish
In Honor of Thee THIRD ANNUAL SANDWICH NIGHT,
I’d like to cast my vote for best sandwich place in Brooklyn, if not ALL OF NEW YORK:
534 Metropolitan Ave
Just east of Union Ave
An Unassuming yet Awesome Deli
SO Many Sandwiches, even Vegetarian, Vegan Sandwiches!
Sandwiches With Names Like -
Who Killed Gertrude Stein?; The Predator; My Girlfriend’s a Whore; Monkey Returns; Beso Azul; The Jim Carrey - MORE!
JeeZ OVER A HUNDRED NAMED SANDWICHES! And if You Make Up Your Own, with all the Ingredients they have On Hand? - Why you’re talking MILLIONS of Sandwiches.
I’ll even get you started - The Maximo is Incredible.
Hero Roll. Chicken Cutlet. Bacon. Fresh Mozzarella. Lettuce. Tomato. Pesto. Add Jalapeños. Mayo If You Want.
It’s named after a guy in Gladiator, so Russell Crowe would eat this sandwich. Lebron James would also eat it. Joaquin Phoenix HATES Russell Crowe in Gladiator, but guess what HE’D EAT IT TOO.
Go to Hana Food.
I Promise You’ll Think It’s Great.
There’s Even an Awesome Comic Store RIGHT NEXT TO IT.
See you at Sandwich Night.
OH MY GOD
ME AND HOT DOG HAVE THE SAME FAVE SANDWICH PLACE
Well this is actually #2 for me behind City Sub on Bergen Street.
BUT IT’S A CLOSE NUMBER TWO
THE MAXIMO IS MY ORDER AS WELL
HAPPY SANDWICH NIGHT EVERYONE
There are more of these and eventually they will have backs but it is almost the end of the semester and I won’t have time to do that for a while. So I’m posting the work in progress of my TCGS trading cards (for the Chris Gethard Show trading card game known as TCGSTCG).
The Big Announcement
jesus, TCGS folks, is there a .gif of Alyssa’s big announcement from the show yet or what?
