Happy V Day!!
Happy Vagina Day everybody!
Since all we do here is post about comedian deaths, here’s another.
Bill Hicks died 20 years ago today. He started doing comedy when he was 16 (if you needed a reason to feel bad about yourself for not being motivated) and died 16 years later at age 32 of pancreatic cancer.
He is known for elevating comedy beyond telling jokes and turning it into social commentary/philosophy hybrid that came off as profound without veering into pretension.
The comedy world would certainly have been a more interesting place with Hicks still in it.
the darkest part of this comic is the realization that they were both right
Happy Vagina Day everybody!
YES JERRY YES! FINALLY! Diversity doesn’t matter in comedy or anywhere else in the world. The entertainment world shouldn’t reflect the real world.
What a fucking weird thing to say that you don’t care about diversity. Why wouldn’t you want to enrich your comedy by having a different point of view to make your comedy better? I think funny to Jerry is white… I think I would be less offended if he straight up just said I have white people on my silly web series because I like white people my comedy is for white people and I AM WHITE PEOPLE! Then put on his hood and yelled WHITE POWER and burned a cross on stage. JK if he did the last part I might be offended… but not really. Theres no shame in liking what you like. Like that Duck Dynasty dude saying he doesn’t like gays… well cool, now I never have to watch a show that I’ve never had an interest in watching. Know what I mean? This is the same… I’ve never seen a full episode of Seinfeld and I doubt I will… his funny isn’t my cup of vodka.
I do think the funniest person should get recognition/work/whatever but as a minority its hard. Very hard… partly because no one is really looking for your story. Sure there were a bunch of black people movies this year… but where were the hispanic movies? The Asian movies? The hungarian american movies? UGH I COULD GO ON ALL DAY ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT AND RACE. However I will end on this… the race problem in america will be solved when there are more JLo movies.

I agree that he doesn’t look good there, but I think what he’s saying is, he doesn’t think about race or gender. If someone’s funny, he wants to have them on. I think the same thing, like I wouldn’t purposely go looking for a female comic. I would just look for a funny comic. I think he’s annoyed though and people are reading into that.
Starting to think that movie “The Purge” isn’t too bad of an idea, when I think about my neighbor talking loudly on her phone in the hallway.
It’s really hard to not hate certain people. Merry Christmas.
So you probably heard Beyoncé released an entire album last night, and one of the songs features Blue Ivy. At the end of the track, Ms. Knowles-Z contributes some spoken-word vocals — it’s all very cute.
Of course, I’m still really confused by whether or not Blue Ivy wants to be famous.
I couldn’t care less.
Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson are back with a secret that’s cool for all ages.
Don’t get the new hobbit movie. I mean I’m all for being green but… a whole 6 hour long epic movie about the dangers of smog and pollution? I get it’s like an allegory to modern times but come on. Come on.
… Peter Jackson, not sure what ur thinkin there. #longtimefanbutmighthavetoskipthisone
All of the desks belong to me.
Is there a desk in your scratching point?
At first I thought the one on the right was a wee-wee.
