On David Lynch's "On the Air," Episode One

Wow, I remember watching this 10 years ago on a VHS collection (the whole series crammed on to one tape). I hadn't heard of it, but Lynch and Frost's names were on it. In the end, though, it was kind of obvious to me why it was short lived. The Lynch directed episodes were good (though not great), and the others were pretty forgettable.

I'm really impressed by the quality of their version though. It doesn't look like all of the other shitty VHS transfers these kinds of shows have on Youtube.

I got so much shit for sending this around my office like six months ago. I still think it's great! (I'M NOT BITTER.)

On The Secret to Not Wearing Socks with Shoes

@Clarence Rosario If the polo is tucked, then no. (Unless they're wearing khakis instead of slacks, in which case dear god.)

On What Kind Of ‘I Don’t Own A TV’ People Do You Have In Your Life?

@Aloysius Unnecessary. Between Netflix and all the other shit you can get on your television for free, why pay more?

On Tim Pawlenty, Bragging About His '05 Government Shutdown, is Toast

I think the usual caveats are worth noting here, which is that the first primary contest is still some months away, and the presidential vote is more than a year away. Polls this far out don't mean a lot, as once you get to the actual votes in IA and NH, all the dynamics will change. And if Pawlenty were the GOP nominee, that would instantly improve his competitive ability, and MN would be in play, even if he's poisoning his potential to ultimately take it.

Pawlenty is probably an also-ran, but it's too early to play anyone's dirge, and not because of polls.

On Don't Re-Elect the Internet

@deepomega Yeah, I have no idea what internet emptiness is supposed to be. Whenever I'm out in the world, I just wish I could look stuff up more easily.
