Well, this episode is an odd one. It just tells me to try again later.
I know it's not Brad's fault, but man, the never-ending Verizon ads and Blip taking ages to process videos has become obnoxious lately.
Still better than You Tube, tbh.
At least YouTube has a cool HD option! Do Blip have that?
If you click on the various categories in the Verizon ads quickly after the ad activates it stops after fifteen seconds rather than 30.
Well, least I get to look at a nice pic of Jillian looking pretty while I wait the 17 hours for Blip to get things ready.
At least this means the only video next week we can look forward to is the Godzilla Midnight Screening.
By the way, invite Jake and Irving to it! I don't expect it to be funny but I wanna hear everyone's thoughts on it (even in the 1% chance that it'll be bad).
Not going to lie, I highly expect American Godzilla 2.0 to suck.
But unlike Roland Emmerich, Gareth Edwards love the source material and says he tried staying true to it. The fact that he gives a sh*t, unlike Emmerich who just wanted to cash off what was popular, means it still has a chance for success, doesn't it?
Also according to a lot of old school Godzilla fans who went to see it at the Hollywood premiere have said the film was great despite a few flaws.
Don't be a Spoony (no offense to Noah). =)
No way. He's totally gonna see The Other Woman.
I can FEEL it!
That was an amazing shot of lightning at 29 mins!
I never heard of the book until I saw the short cartoon it was based on!
Actually I only saw this particular version:
Brad has a man-crush on Jon Hamm
Laika (the Boxtrolls, Paranorman studio) actually used to be Will Vinton Studios (of California Raisins fame).
Vinton was forced out of the company in the early 2000s when Nike's Phil Knight became a majority shareholder and put his son (a failed rapper named "Chilly Tee") in charge of the company.
i cant get over how cute jillian is! :D
Dude, I hear this was actually meant to be a prequel to Godzilla where Jon Hamm's gigantic penis comes to life and terrorizes Tokyo.
I actually haven't seen Bill Paxton in a film in the theater since Titanic I think and then in general when I watched Aliens for the first time a couple of years ago. He'll be in Edge of Darkness this year as well. In terms of TV though, he's been in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for probably a half dozen episodes if not more and it was really good seeing him again there although I suppose I should see Frailty eventually as well because I haven't really seen him in that kind of role before.
Brad, Mountain Dew Baja Blast is being sold in stores for a limited time! Normally it is only available as a fountain drink exclusively at Taco Bell. I just thought it would be cool if you did a Brad Tries on it, or include it in a Brad Tries. Share your thoughts on this flavor and the implications of it being sold in stores. I know for sure you can get it at Wal-Mart, so if you are willing you can educate the masses on Mountain Dew Baja Blast.
I smell a spoof in the works: Million-Dollar Baby Arm.
Alexander was a self-centered and entitled brat who had absolutely no concept of personal responsibility and probably alienated other kids with his obnoxiousness. On a totally unrelated note, the real-life inspiration for that kid apparently grew up to work in banking.
in heaven, no one can hear you scream
I think brad likes john ham
I have a new respect for Jillian because Goosebumps was brought up. I was having happy memories the moment "Scholastic" was mentioned. Much better than some babysitter's club (god, I AM starting to show my age...), and I just remembered that I have a lot more episodes of the goofy TV show to watch on Netflix.
So with that bit of fun, I can forgive the lightning spooks.
Omg your Mad Men opinions.. u breakin my balls brad.. breakin my bALLS
Don is finally reaping the consequences of being a big man baby as of late. He basically threw a fussy baby-block-slamming tantrum when he was told to do work for Peggy since he had just come back from a hiatus caused by an emotional breakdown. He's gone over this emotional hurdle and is learning how to function like an adult again. Nobody else is really afforded the luxury of having a breakdown and staying at the head of an advertising company, Don deserves to be kicked in the ass a bit.
And I'm actually really surprised you don't like Betty! Not 'like' as in like her as a human being, but I think it's fun as hell watching a picturesquely beautiful woman of her time just utterly and completely fail at being something she probably should have NEVER been, but is obligated by society to be: a mom. It's a great contrast to Don, who actually is a decent father who really cares about his kids, but again, because of the world he lives in, he's not afforded the luxury of being able to just be a dad. They're both tragically bad parents in different ways, but for very similar reasons. It's great.
Ah well. We can at least agree Roger is great, right? Bein' all Rogery and stuff.
OK SRY FOR OFFTOPIC TL;DR, thanks for another fun review brad and jillian! :) Listen to these at work all the time.
There's nothing wrong with a bit of karma coming Don's way, my problem isn't so much with that, but the partners' attitudes towards Don is both unrealistic and stupid (the IBM pitch) and also hypocritical on all of their parts, especially Joan's. As for Betty, there could be a much better way to write this "beauty queen trampled by the real world" character other than making her an unnecessarily evil sociopath.
Roger however is the best character on the show, always has been =)
I can at least see where Joan's current attitude towards Don comes from. From a personal standpoint, she was bothered, to say the least, by Don torpedoing the Jaguar account, which made her actions to land the company the account worthless. That certainly adds to her worries about how him coming back would affect the business aspect (which she said was working, after he left).
I must say that this past episode was quite...interesting, to say the least... I wasn't expecting Ginsberg's story to go the direction it went, although in hindsight, it wasn't really out of character...
Man, first Smurfs 2 and now Legends of Oz. I really hope Jillian's career recovers from this when she stars in Rio 3.
Just so you know, How to Train Your Dragon 2 comes out the same day as 22 Jump Street, so Jillian might have a chance.
Brad, I want you to relay this message to dave.
I understand he is a Cormac McCarthy fan, there is a novel by him he needs to read. Literary critic Harold Bloom considers it to be the "Ultimate Western" and probably the greatest book since William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying". The Book is called "Blood Meridian" he should read it. it is an INTENSE BOOK. and has the most terrifying villian in literature "Judge Holden". you should read it too. I would really appreciate it if you relied this message to dave and tell me if you do. Thank you
If Dave is a Cormac McCarthy fan he has probably read one of his most famous works, esp since it came out 30 years ago
