Then the pan to the audience; half are laughing like maniacs, the other half is “What? What kind of name is Callisee? Is that Jewish? It’s the end of days!”
“Khaleesi is coming to Westeros!” Was the best damn part.
Jesus. I thought the Oscars crowd was full of stuffed shirts, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many self-serious old white botoxed fuckwads as in the crowd shots from this thing. (And I’m white and, well, aging.)
I love that half the damned audience had no farging clue who Luther was/what was happening/why they were such chumps.
God damn, Mark. I thought nothing could horrify me more than rosebud, but that fucking Pumps video did it.

Yeah, because people who want to see Paul Blart are going to read these reviews and be like, whaaaaaa? Not as good as the book?
They charge astronomical prices for extremely simplistic devices and pretend they’re advanced. You can buy a neato robotic vacuum for the SAME PRICE or LESS that actually uses sensors to map the room, it is FAR more advanced, and works great. Read more
Holy crap. I clicked on the video and knew exactly where she is at (sign me up to be an investigative reporter, ESPN. I have a college degree, am in good shape, have all my teeth, and live in an apartment). Before everyone absolutely rags on Britt here, let me play devil’s advocate for just one second.
