THIS SCENE WAS LITERALLY THE TEXTBOOK DEFINITION
#you know it’s bad when you’re less progressive than a show from the 60’s
Every so often I’ll latch onto a movie that I pretty much want to watch all the time. Every day. Multiple times a day, if I could. Like, 12 million times in a row and on the 12-million-and-first time I’d be all like, “Wow, I’m not even getting tired of this.”
I’m not saying that the movie in question is the Best Movie Ever or anything. It usually has its flaws. But for some reason it just happens to make me super happy, and I’m cool with that.
In elementary school it was “Jumanji.” In high school it was “Never Been Kissed” (and “Ever After”… I was in a Drew Barrymore phase, apparently). In college it was “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”
Now it’s “Pitch Perfect.”
So here’s the deal: The music is infectious. The cast is perfection. In terms of story it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but everything else about it is just so darn likable that you don’t really mind. Oh, and Rebel Wilson needs to be in every movie EVER. That is all.
I’ve seen it twice now and I bought the soundtrack and a lot of the original songs too, and have been singing along at the top of my lungs on the drive to and from work each day. I’m not obsessed or anything. And I kind of want to go see it again. And maybe 11,999,998 more times after that…
John Riddell: Doctor, this is a two man job.

John Riddell: (baffled) What are you doing?
Amy: I’m easily worth two men. You can help, too, if you like.

Rory’s gone two full episodes without dying. That’s got to be some sort of record.
I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.
Hell, I even have season one on dvd, it’s sitting right between Battlestar Galactica and Bored To Death in my alphabetised collection.
And here, I think, is where my problem with The Big Bang Theory lies…
why be in one fandom when you can be in ten

Many people believe geekdom is defined by a love of a thing, but I think — and my experience of geekdom bears on this thinking — that the true sign of a geek is a delight in sharing a thing. It’s the major difference between a geek and a hipster, you know: When a hipster sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “Oh, crap, now the wrong people like the thing I love.” When a geek sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “ZOMG YOU LOVE WHAT I LOVE COME WITH ME AND LET US LOVE IT TOGETHER.” — John Scalzi: Who Gets To Be a Geek?

Some men just want to watch the world learn.
They’re like the Avengers of learning.
“I have an army.”
“We have Bob Ross.”
“That’s my secret, Mr. Rogers. There’s always a little bush.”
But where’s LeVar Burton from Reading Rainbow?
