Aaaaand Viacom has already taken down that Chappelle/Beasties video clip. Good job exploring the frontiers of heartlessness, Viacom!
I rarely comment, so I don't know how much I have to contribute. I actually just decided to comment here because I couldn't remember what my commenter # was and wanted to find out. Also, to be a part of a secret comment thread, how fun is that?
I will say that I've used other sites that have Disqus and it's not terrible? But it does always seem like it takes extra time to load. Like, the post will load normally, then there's a delay while Disqus fills in below. I don't know enough about code and whatnot to understand why the current system is bad, but it never gives me any loading issues.
Also, now that I've written Disqus a couple times, I think it's a silly and sort of awkward name. Disqus. Disqus Disqus Disqus. Great, now I hate it.
FIRM-UH-MENT! FIRM-UH-MENT! FIRM-UH-MENT! (glad you're back!)
<3 you, Jolie. I loathe red velvet cake. My Southern grandmother used to always make it when we'd come visit, and my parents would make me choke a piece down to be polite.
It's red because it's the work of Satan!
My baby! MY BABY!
WHAT? Does a lower commenter number mean NOTHING anymore?
Marry me, Jolie.
Soooo... are we just pretending that The Awl didn't run its very own "Glee" recaps last season?
Great piece, even if the thought of "the glottal honk of CBS's Tony Siragusa in a golf shirt" is going to haunt me for days.
But: "I can't think of any sport whose live-and-in-person iteration is so much less enjoyable than its televisual counterpart." Really? I'd say professional golf wins that going away.
