I, TOO, AM CURRENTLY READING INFINITE JEST IT’S ROLLICKING THUS FAR DESPITE MY NOT BEING VERY FAR INTO IT
HIGH FIVE yeah i’m like 150 pages in (which is further than my previous attempt made it!) and GOSH i have no idea how i found it so challenging before because even though there’s absolutely loads of it, everything’s brilliant? like last time i don’t think i realised just how witty he is and how beautifully put-together some parts are. i’m really really impressed and really glad i’ve made the effort to read it again.
well i just dicked around with my tumblr theme for approximately ever and now i don’t know if i like it or not
i sure do like Magicant though so i guess i’ll stick with it
(i also like ben and thomas, the other two members of the illustrious Earthbound Background Club that I am aware of)
i don’t like any of ricky gervais’ programmes so basically i decided to watch the us one and parks and rec def wouldn’t exist w/o it is the conclusion i made. once it gets out of the uk shadow (& its own show season 2 on) it’s amazing.
original is better imo, but the american office grows on you because of how much longer it ran (my theory, anyway) also they do some of the original’s jokes like the jello stapler early on. can’t watch it since steve carrell left though ;__;
yeah I’m not a fan of Gervais much past the original Office either (Extras is alright but he definitely slipped down the “being cynical and self-indulgent while constantly pointing out how cynical and self-indulgent you are being is a decent replacement for jokes” route while making it, also I’m now getting “conversations I had an hour ago” deja vu)
and I can definitely see how it being successful would’ve helped Parks and Rec get past one season!
also, the American Office having gone on much longer is in some ways a thing that’s put me off watching it, if I go to check out something I think I should watch and there’s already a million episodes I just go “aw shit I didn’t even finish watching Gurren Lagann, let’s find something that got cancelled”
but at the same time I can totally see how it going on longer would win it a place in your heart
tv is such a commitment god damn
Even though it is only 4:28 PM here HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM CHILLINOIS! Let’s be honest with ourselves the Jewish way of doing time around sunrise/set rules. If I learned one thing from Majora’s Mask, it’s that noon/and midnight are ASS for timekeeping
haha yes! that said, the Jewish way sucks on fast days where you go to sleep hungry and wake up hungry and carry on being hungry til it gets dark
but it’s definitely a lot easier to tell when the change occurs, I only really register midnight when Skype tells you that the day’s changed in the conversation window.
Harry Coles: is dat some white guilt I detect? Thanks for sticking up for my homelands, however hard-headed we are over hurr :D
it’s a fascinating combination of white guilt with some kind of refusal to recognise that we privileged white people on a small island aren’t actually that different at all from the privileged white people on a huge continent across the ocean from us?
I don’t get why he specifically said “other white people =)”. What point was he trying to make?I… really don’t know? I think it might be “so lol I know all americans are racist and don’t care about Africa but other white people die in terrorist attacks why don’t you care about THEM instead”butugh
if I might supply a recommendation: youtube.com/watch?v…
oh gosh wait I know these guys
or at least I know their Final Fantasy and Zelda raps
yeah it makes sense that people would’ve thought I was listening to people rap over video game music
