Hahaha this is great.
NPR wrote down all the recurring gags from every episode (like Lindsay’s charities), how they connect to each other, and when they were being foreshadowed (like when Buster lost his hand) and compiled this amazing chart.
Epic. This is fucking awesome.
But there is a real issue here. Why are all of these political groups (on the left but primarily on the right) being allowed to pretend that they are do-gooder social groups when they are just the newest kind of political action committees? Again, this is not the focus of the story. Instead it is that evil IRS (probably controlled by that evil Obama) going after all their enemies.
Frank Moraes, Scandal?!
Copy/paste for all of the current “scandals” going around lately. Our country’s media can’t seem to tease out the real and otherwise obvious issues in these stories, and instead tries to distract by turning it into yet another episode of good-versus-evil, two-sides-equal bullshit theatre. The best part is that they ultimately look good even if they are completely off the mark, because in these situations all the press needs to do it hide behind its thin “watchdog” veneer, and pretend like they’re doing citizens a favor.
Beck - Think I’m in Love
Think so. Still haven’t ever used the stickers that came with this album (then again, why would I?).
Good rule to live by. I wish Wallace was still around…
Of course, read the full speech, which is even better.
I was finally able to take a MassDOT tour on Friday, after two months in the making. We got to see operations centers for the Highway Association, MBTA Subway and Bus, and got to check out one of the ventilation buildings that keeps the Big Dig tunnels from filling up with carbon monoxide and water (including the inside of one of the tunnels themselves). Admittedly, I was already a sucker for this sort of stuff to begin with, but seeing it in person gives you a whole new appreciation for just how massive the endeavor of making transportation work is in a major city.
Everyone should give this a shot. It was one of the coolest things I’ve done all year.
IGN has an eight-or-so minute video up that summarizes the entire series, narrated by Henchman 21, aka Gary. Needless to day if you aren’t caught up on all the episodes you shouldn’t watch it. However if you are caught up but have just forgotten everything (or just need a refresher) then you should check it out:
Need to start rewatching this.
EEEEEEEEEEEE. My god that was an amazing recap. Can’t wait ‘til June 2nd.
Also, if you’re trying to rewatch the series before Season 5 begins, I’m game for an epic few days of Venture (I say “few” because we all remember what happened last time we tried to crush multiple seasons in a day…).
