Well, I'm gob smacked. WTF?

I take it we're now going to be all about some new series on HBO, is that it?

Wait. Bill Maher is on HBO and because of that I canceled HBO and because of that I can't watch this piece of nonsense. Oh what a lucky man I am.

Then don't get pissed off if someone calls you a clumsy fat cow or Garage Mahal's mom.

You know, if you had some guys going on & on about porn in public, they would at best be considered totally tasteless retards.

But you get chicks blathering on about watered down chick-porn & all of of a sudden it's supposed to be edgy & subversive!

Jeez! At least the guys just rub one out and then get back to thinking about important things, like baseball.

But all the sex is bad sex... so it's art.

That is udderly ridiculous.

Does ObamaCare pay for breast reduction surgery?

Dolly Parton may be eligible. They say she fainted on stage last week and it took four men to carry her off, two abreast.

I feel an Althouse/Rosin Bloggingheads coming on.

If the show serves to lower young women's expectations, I'd also classify it as a Godsend.

traditionalguy said...

I want to hear what Rush Limbaugh thinks about this. He is an expert on women, you know.

edutcher said...

I guess this is a bloggingheads without somebody sane to answer all the dumb stuff.

Porn is now art?

Who knew?

(reminds me of Kirstie Alley's line, "It wasn't sex. It was GOOD")

Bad sex is art? Tell my wife I'm an artist!

Ha!

I saw Lena Dunham doing an interview. She's reasonably attractive. It's amazing how dumpy and frumpy a woman can look if the makes the proper effort with her appearance.....I follow the show because it comes on after Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones presents all kinds of impossibly hot girls in all kinds of impossibly hot scenarios. Watching Girls after Game of Thrones is like plunging into a cold pool after a sauna.

Heh. I continue to like this show.

It article is hard to follow as a whole.

Being late for your abortion was good though. These things never start on time.

A good line here and there is all you need.

Mary Beth said...

Part of the wasted hour between Sunday night airings of Game of Thrones. If only GRRM wrote this too, at least one character would be dead by now.

I tried watching Girls (the first 3 episodes) after the last post about it but I don't get the appeal of the show.

Having not seen this Girls thing on HBO (I gave up TV years ago) I can only surmise the bad sex is bad in the sense that four-putting a green is bad golf. How is that art? Baudelaire's title wasn't Les Fleurs d'erreur. Next time in stead of uggggh...Aaaahh! I'll yell Hail Satan! at the top of my lungs. Then I'll say we're not makin' babies, honey... we're making art. Now that'll be really bad sex.

"What if I want to feel like I have udders? This woman doesn't care what I want." That solidified my until-then wavering appeal for Jessa.

Slate has always been the bottom of the barrel stylistically, their writers don't know how to write, and their editors (if they have any) don't know their business either... but this crew of humbugs they've assembled to... to what? Make unenlightened commentary on televised drivel? ... are the goo that clings to the floor of the cask. Where did Aisha Harris get her education? Did they explain to her that "appeal" and "sympathy" aren't synonyms? Did they clarify the relationship between readers and fictional characters? Do major universities admit students who haven't resolved the other minds problem that most normal four-year-olds master?

OMG WTF? Who writes this? Who can watch it.

I could listen to it for an hour or two from a pretty girl with a promise of getting laid, but of my own volition for no reward?

I have to think of slaughtering a pig just to get it out of my mind.

yashu said...

IMO it's a good, clever show; but 99.9999% of the commentary on it (like that eyerollworthy "dissection" at Slate) is just ugh, insufferable.

Erika said...

What a bore. Who wants to hear those cynical drips at Slate talk about a show featuring bunch of banal postmoderns talking endlesssly about themselves and their tiny, self-obsessed little appetites?

Peter said...

The best line in the show so far is when a middle-aged woman told Marnie, in a voice dripping with contempt, "You know what I think about men who [have intercourse with] Asian women."

Dante said...

Are people so desperate for friends they have to read an article of a few stupid friends talking about a lame show?

Well, I'm sure it's nuanced. After all, they used that hip term "arc."

Freeman Hunt said...

article is hard to follow as a whole.

I agree. I opened this in a new tab several minutes ago, and when I clicked on it to read it, I wondered, "How did I get here? What is this?" I read part of it, and now I have traced it back here.

Is it to make us weep for modern times? Or just on theme? Or another deserved swipe at the pretend feminism of today?

Freeman Hunt said...

There was a funny part where a girl hypothesized that people make jokes about AIDS because they were born after the height of the AIDS scare, a hypothesis that could only be made at the height of the PC scare.

Well, whatever you do, don't moo.
