“Almost every popular movie? I will not be going to see. Which explains why I went to see ‘Duplicity,’ or as I’ve been calling it ‘Doo-Dooplicity.’ It opened the same weekend as ‘I Love You, Man,’ which stars a friend of mine and was directed by another friend of mine. Why didn’t I go see that? Asshole. That’s why.”—Michael Ian Black
“What I’m learning about date rape jokes is that some people really like them and some people do not. This is probably to be expected because rape, as a general topic, is not very funny. But when you add the word ‘date’ to it, somehow it magically becomes pretty amusing (at least to me). Just like the way the word ‘ice’ by itself isn’t funny. Add ‘Vanilla’? You get my point.”—Michael Ian Black (via listentothewise)
“Creating a bucket list of things I don’t need to do before I die: climbing any mountains tops the list. I’m calling it The Fuck It List. And yes, I’m trademarking that, so don’t any of you fuckers steal it.”—Michael Ian Black (via marmite)
'Hair' is fucking depressing. […] Why? Because it is impossible to separate the show from its context: we know who all those hopeful young people grow up to be – assholes.
What should be a relevant musical about war, change, and optimism is instead a nearly total indictment of the Baby Boomer generation. These people who marched to stop The Vietnam War grew up to give us The Iraq War. The people who decried materialism grew up to give us hedge funds and sub-prime mortgages. These people who sought to change the world, did. For the worse. I left the show last night feeling so angry at all those self-indulgent long-haired hippies who tried to levitate the Pentagon, but instead sank the whole country.
