My favorite thing about instagram is that you can play things on a loop without having to rewind. Exhibit Q: the grace and beauty of Lorne Cardinal on “Corner Gas.”

World got you down? Try some laugh therapy!
I’ve been playing this on a loop and laughing so hard it hurts for 25 years. The sound effects are important, btw.
“I’m fine, I’ve been working on that.”
from “The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.”

This whole thing, all day every day. Thank you thank you thank you.
“The idea of people being, ‘Oh, political correctness is ruining the world.’ No, it’s people not understanding what political correctness is. And I think political correctness is basically having a fundamental knowledge of what you’re talking about, and fundamental human empathy.”

“[Comedy and horror are] the genres that cause the most visceral reactions.”
“While their aims are very different, comedy and horror both affect us on a base level—that sets them apart from other genres.”
“Unlike most horror comedies that have funny parts and scary parts, here [in Evil Dead II] the funny parts are the scary parts, and vice versa.”
“What Raimi recognizes is that the construction of a scare is more or less the same as the construction of a laugh—there’s a setup, and a payoff.”
“His brand of manipulation rests on knowing how we will react to certain things, and aiming to put us through a sort of fun house experience, eliciting the most visceral reaction possible.”
“I have found that when the audience is set up for a sequence of suspense, and they expect a scare, oftentimes you can give them a punchline instead, and the buildup to that punchline can work as a suspense sequence.
“The construction of a suspense sequence is very similar to the construction of a joke. And in a horror film, that suspense sequence is capped with a scare, and in a joke, it’s capped with an unexpected punchline, and I find the two can be interchangeable.”
Martyn Conterio catches up with DRAG ME TO HELL director Sam Raimi.
Excuse me while I play this on a loop and never quite hear the whole thing over the sound of my own laughter ringing in my head.

So much of this video made me laugh maniacally and replay bits, mostly because of the delivery.
(Spoiler alert: This is a summary of the first three seasons.)
“Starbuck and Apollo like each other, so they beat each other up.”
“when a phone with a cord rings”
“there’s a bun in the toaster”
David Rose (Daniel Levy) tells Stevie (Emily Hampshire) that he’s fond of a wide variety of drinking experiences in this metaphor-heavy scene from Schitt’s Creek S1E10, “Honeymoon.”
This is very possibly the best moment in television history.
Thank you, “Schitt’s Creek.”
Another favorite-favorite-favorite bit from “Corner Gas”—the delivery from both of these ladies is beyond genius.
(Apologies for the shakiness; 6-year-old assistants don’t have the best coordination!)
He watched this line, many times, on a loop. I can’t imagine where he picked up that practice. 😂

This is a beautiful, earnest song–unlike its official video. The video makes me increasingly uncomfortable. Toward the end I peek through my fingers, not wanting to look full on but too morbidly curious to look away.
Really not helpful that now whenever I get this song stuck in my head (which is frequently, since I listen to it frequently), these images also get stuck in my head.
But. On some level, I identify with this man. If It let myself go while listening to this song, I might look not entirely unlike this.
“I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred (1991)
Oh man this song takes me back. It was very important to my 10-year-old self. I knew all the lyrics in Spanish, too. Because I had the single on a tape and the other side was the Spanish version. I wish this would go all retro-viral.
Looking back, this could have sparked, or at least reified, my love for self-referential, self-parodic humor. It is clearly a joke (disguised as or including a wider critique), and yet there’s an honesty here, too. Like a megalomaniac admitting they’re a little self-centered, or making fun of self-centered people in general. Do they say it out of truth or is it a bluff? Some of both? It really blurs the line between joke and truth–showing us that that line doesn’t always exist.
Am I being jokingly overly-academic about this or am I truly this pedantic? (Or both?)
“Ms Rowling, let’s talk about my name. Cho Chang. Cho and Chang are both last names; they’re both Korean last names. I’m supposed to be Chinese. Me being named Cho Chang is like a Frenchman being named Garcia Sanchez.”
OMG this song, I think I’m in love.
I was digging this song for a long time before I found out it was Tom Jones. It kind of blew my mind. (Song starts at 1:48.)
“Sea Of Love” by Phil Phillips, 1959, R&B/doo-wop. We all know how I feel about doo-wop. A gorgeous song. Accept no imitations.
Sam Raimi + Wizard of Oz = looking forward to March, possibly more than my son’s birthday in February
