Ya Damn Right

In 11th grade, we had to make a video based on a poem for my A.P. English class. At the request of my teacher, I did two — the one she wanted was a overly-serious (and totally misunderstanding of the point of the poem) video for Robert Frost’s “The Road Less Traveled”, and the one I wanted to do was a reading of the Shaft theme.

This is all to say that I can’t wait for this movie, and I will 100% be there several times opening weekend.

Avengers: Endgame Trailer #1

It’s cool if we can rush ahead to April 2019 now, I’m fine with that.

I love this trailer, but I hate the title, which is Marvel’s own damn fault — don’t keep the name of the movie a secret and overhype it if you’re just going to go with what everyone’s first guess was, you ninnies.

In fact, here’s a few titles I would have liked them to go with instead:

  1. Avengers: Assemble
  2. Avengers: Captain Marvel’s Gonna Be Pissed
  3. Avengers: Good of You to Finally Show Up, Hawkeye Ronin
  4. Avengers: Probably the Last One Before the X-Men Start Ruining Things, Ugh
  5. Avengers v Thanos: Dawn of Justice

Sizzler Promotional Video

This is easily the most 1990s thing I’ve seen in a long time and I might love it.

Also, Sizzler’s Italian Bar was what’s up, and I miss it terribly.

Lin-Manuel on The Catchiness of Disney Afternoon Themes

I’ll be totally honest: I thought Lin-Manuel was wrong here. Yes, it’s very obviously true for Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Chip-and-Dale’s Rescue Rangers, and even the oft-forgotten Gummi Bears, but I thought he was wrong with Tale Spin.1

Having reviewed the extended version of the theme, though, I can officially announce:

FACT CHECK: True!


  1. This is obviously in order of theme song awesomeness, and if you disagree you’re totally wrong, sorry to be the one to tell you that.

Tony, Not Steve

Before we all rush to the theater to finally see Avengers: Infinity War tonight, please feel free to listen to this week’s brief episode of Nearly Coherent to find out what I think is going to happen, which might not, but it’d be kinda great if it did tbh

The Greatest Badminton Rant I’ve Ever Seen

There aren’t many times I’ll post sports-related content to eTM, but when I do, you can bet it’ll be high-quality stuff like this 2004 rant by Mary Carillo.

It’s solid gold, people.

Solid. Gold.

Seth Meyers’s Second Son’s Birth

I’m a sucker for a good/weird baby-birthing story, and this more than qualifies.
