A Perfect YouTube Moment

I got the following comment on this video (NSFW):

This is the only comment by someone other than me. It's a very flattering, supportive comment. I am enjoying this unspoiled moment before I start receiving negative "faggot" comments. Or, even worse, before I realize that I will never get another comment on my videos ever again.

(Thanks Abbi for the heads-up and the video!)

Best Viral Video Of The Year (About MJ Media Hypocrisy)

I've seen Jon Lajoie's work and I've always thought it was OK but nothing could prepare me for this scathing rebuke of the hypocritical media's reaction to Michael Jackson's death. Before Jackson's death he was demonized as a child-touching pariah. Now he's been crowned the King of Pop by everybody carbon-based life form. Which is it? Lajoie seems to lean towards the "kid-diddling sicko" view, but he keeps his unwavering focus on the media circus that interviewed vapid talking head after vapid talking head.

There have been plenty of hilarious viral vids this year but this is one of the precious few that challenges the status quo. Indeed I can't think of another viral video produced exclusively for the web that does.

The Hangover Wins Over Angry Meatheads

First of all, this is the most perfect film ever realized. It is at least the best comedy I've seen in a very long time. I don't think a better comedy will come out this year but I hope I'm wrong.

It was especially awesome considering the conditions. I saw it in a sold-out theater full of angry douchey bros who were waiting 15 minutes past the scheduled time for the movie to start.

This movie better have roofies!

A theater employee announced that the movie would start in five minutes. As we were watching the trailers, the projector went out and everyone booed. They started the movie a few minutes past the very beginning which pissed everybody off. Some audience members were booing the projectionist. One guy behind me said "This movie is doomed."

At the end of the film, there was rapturous applause. Hangover with the win!
