Ear buds which have one bud on a much longer cable than the other. Is there some special way to wear these that I don't know about? Because when I wear them, the entire weight of the cable is supported by one ear, so it keeps popping out.

 First world problem.

Not sure what you're adding to the conversation. First World Problem should be the alternate title to this thread.

Well damn, Shut Up Weirdo sure is lazy. They used the same archive for their July 8 and August 5 show.

Samsung Infuse 4G "Spider"

This dumb phone commercial where the woman starts SCREAMING in horror at the phone's spider screensaver.  This jolts me so much when i'm just sitting around with the TV on in the background.  It's so unpleasant.
This is and the mint chocolate chip Klondike Bar where the guy struggles to listen to his wife for five seconds are the two worst for me at this second.

I have no idea which of the dozen Kevin Smith threads to post this in, so I'll just leave this here:

Quote
Kevin Smith on Paul Thomas Anderson (specifically, Magnolia):
“I’ll never watch it again, but I will keep it. I’ll keep it right on my desk, as a constant reminder that a bloated sense of self-importance is the most unattractive quality in a person or their work.”

There's just no way to respond to that. Except perhaps: is he sure that's a copy of the Magnolia DVD, and not a mirror?

I would describe him less as having "a bloated sense of self-importance" and more as having "delusions of competence."
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

24. Vincent Gallo on Sofia (and Francis Ford) Coppola:
“Sofia Coppola likes any guy who has what she wants. If she wants to be a photographer she’ll fuck a photographer. If she wants to be a filmmaker, she’ll fuck a filmmaker. She’s a parasite just like her fat, pig father was.”

I wonder if he made this statement before or after Tetro.

On a related note, I just read "The 30 Harshest Musician-on-Musician Insults in History" at Flavorwire and saw this:

Quote
30. Wayne Coyne on Arcade Fire
“I get really tired of their pompousness [sic]… We’ve played some shows with them and they really treat people like shit. People treat Arcade Fire like they’re the greatest thing ever and they get away with it… They have good tunes, but they’re pricks, so fuck ‘em.”

How pompous is it to write sic after the word pompousness?

Albini's recent comments on OFWGKTA probably belong on that list, but perhaps they were to recent.

Related hates:

  • Such lists
  • Comments on such lists along the lines of 'you forgot to include ______'
  • Websites forcing you through a slide show instead of just listing everybody/thing on one page

I never read this Podmass review in my life, but checked it out when Tom mentioned it on Twitter today:

"The Best Show On WFMU
It’s week one of the Regular Caller Ban on The Best Show, though the rule isn’t strictly enforced, because Julie from Cincinnati is actually in the studio to tell a good story about what landed her in prison. Calls from non-regulars include a person who was once mistaken for Wayne Knight and another whose father was beaten up at a hardcore festival. Tom Scharpling goes on several extended riffs on the banes of his existence (buffet hogs, his high-school bullies, and lists of the best comedian tweeters), but the highlight of the episode is a call from Philly Boy Roy, who discusses all the surprise indie guests at this year’s Gathering Of The Juggalos. That said, without a guest, this week’s episode misses some of the usual magic."

Has this guy/gal even listened to some episodes before 2011?
Seems to me he/she isn't fit (too ignorant of the canon) to give an opinion on the astounding self-referential loop the whole show was set up for.

Anyone who thinks the show is only good if there's a guest is an ass.  For me, the best shows have always been about Tom, not the callers (well, except for those callers who all sort of sound alike, if you catch my meaning, if you get my drift).

But Julie is only a fancy celeb guest to us.

Sometimes there will be stretches where there's a guest every week, and I'll think 'enough with the guests'. The show works perfectly fine without guests.
