On The Friday Night Pie

@lora.bee and @highfivesforall I mean, this is one of my favourite things ever but I get that a lot of people don't find it funny at all. For me it sort of boils down to two things. The first is that it's making fun of reference humour in general and Modern Seinfeld in particular, which is why you get tweets about Gangnam Style and Lena Dunham. The second is that it's about a character, the character of @seinfeld2000, who understands neither the show nor the idea of coming up with plot synopses for it, or why that would be funny. Which is why you get tweets about Presiednet Obame yelling at Grag for being on a hover toilet, and why the spelling, and so on.

And also then you just have a nice veneer of absurdist humour.

I know dissecting the joke doesn't make it funny but I think a lot of people are really baffled about the appeal of this novelty twitter account so I thought I would write out an explanation of why I care so much about this novelty twitter account, because I do, I care so much that I bought the e-book.

On The Friday Night Pie

@lora.bee okay but are you talking about actual modern Seinfeld ("It's an IPAD, Jerry, an IPAD, an IPAD, it IS, JERRY, JERRY, an IPAD,") or the 1000% better and more confusing @Seinfeld2000? Or is this controversy the black hole you're talking about?

On The Day Vampire Weekend Met Steve Buscemi

I mean, we all saw this life-changing thing, right: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQvp30rg9g

Oh Stevey B! My love for him is boundless and more so when he's being so awkward.

On Office Personas of Note

@SarcasticFringehead I will because my boyfriend and I enjoy talking about how much it sucks and all the ways in which it is problematic, and I can't very well do that if I haven't seen it.

A good place on Tumblr for people who aren't so thrilled is stfu-moffat.tumblr.com which I think is pretty thorough about pointing out the major issues.

On Friday Open Thread

@Josh is like Germany Ambitious and Misunderstood It's just fanfiction the cast decided to act out in front of cameras as a joke that's all, that's all it is. Just one big joke. The real fourth season will turn out to be Dan Harmon's CBS sitcom or whatever and it will be fine, just fine.
