The Hunt For The Worst Movie Of All Time: American Beauty

[Originally posted on November 15th, 2010.] American Beauty won the 1999 Academy Award for Best Picture. Whoops! This is a pretentious, misguided, ham-fisted film.

The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

The Petting Zoo began, two years ago or however long it’s been, because Gabe told me I was posting too many animal videos and that I was to be further limited to one animal video post per week. Hahaha. That old dead grump, I miss him and his fair and pretty much correct assessments of [...]

Yes, We Are Going To Watch “MORE SAND!” At Least One More Time

Very often when I would tell people what I do for a living, they would pause and say something like, “Man. Watching viral videos all day? That’s the best job ever!” Or something. Because generally people are nice and you literally have to fill conversation somehow, because standing and staring blankly at someone after they [...]
