I think we've gotten to the point where we're making mostly funny videos, just like the slogan says.
Mostly. Mostly.
Like in "Alien"... "mostly".
I don't really do pop culture references. And I think I've only watched funny movies for the past decade.
You don't even TiVo or Netflix non funny things?
At this point, I'm so deep in the viral videos world I only watch movie previews or trailers. And only if they're doing something unique.
Our sweet-ass plasma HDTV is completely wasted on you. I'm going to sell it for some magic beans on eBay. And remind me to beat you with a stick tomorrow.

Peter, although Karma Police by Radiohead is a great song, I must respectfully disagree. The best piano rock song of all time is "Philosophy" by Ben Folds Five.

Just in case you didn't know, the official best piano rock song of all time is a song called Karma Police by a 90s band called Radiohead. Performers such as Billy Joel or Elton John may indeed be good composers, but no song of any genre in music history has ever has lived up to the standards of Karma Police and I doubt any song ever will. Officially, it is the number one. To anyone that questions this post, this is no joke. I guarentee you! Inaccurate opinionated-sources such as "Rolling Stones" or "VH1" may suggest otherwise, but officially "Karma Police" is the best piano rock song.

Okay, I just have to say that I think that all those critics are friggin retards. They have their heads shoved so far up their........ well, you know exactly what I'm talking about. They spend too much time watching American Idol and picking up Simon's nasty habits to realize that there is more to life than trying to live up to everyone's psuedo-perfect standards. Just tell them to go fornicate with themselves (which they probably do on a bi-hourly basis anyway) and keep having fun with what your doing. You probably put more heart and effort into what your doing than they could ever claim. :-p
