"Are You the Favorite Person of Anybody?"

How confident are you? Very confident? That's the highest one.

I am the favorite person of my dog.

Probably in the top five for my wife and kids.

That's good enough for me.

I know I'm Sherlock's favorite person.

And pretty sure I'm The Blonde's.

Mitchell the Bat said...

That short was extremely cool.

Thank you.

wyo sis said...

Wow. My single daughter said something similar to that as the reason she sometimes feels very sad. She's nobody's number one person. I told he I thought it might be worse to be married and still be no one's number one person.

Chuck Currie said...

Fortunately, no.

Cheers

don't know about being "a favorite person," but I know my ex-wife, independent (if unemployed) modern woman that she is, thinks very highly of me as a personal ATM and wants to keep me in close proximity. She's always calling me if I'm late. She is deeply worried that I might die and she my lose the benefits of my ... er ... benefits.

I feel so needed. More than ever, it seems.

If you have to ask, you don't want to know the answer.

Rusty said...

As long as I have money I'm everyones favorite person.

I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member

Groucho Marx

If you are a favorite, you're trying too hard!

traditionalguy said...

Sadly being another's favorite person is often temporal as are the persons whom we meet in this wild day of information glut, seduction by advertising and cultural upheaval.

Semper fidelis is a rare character trait among the son's of men. Treasure it.

john said...

George is the favorite person of Barry.

Love for Three Oranges.

Orange trees are a symbol of love and marriage in many cultures. Oranges are sometimes found in Renaissance paintings of married couples

whoresoftheinternet said...

Garbage Pail the Liar is the favorite person of Inga the Lying Obama Whore, and vice versa.

Congenital liars cling together---like poo in a sewer.

EMD said...

Boring.

Mike White should've exploded or ... something.

stroupis said...

I, too, am the favorite person of my dog. Unless, of course, someone in the room has bacon and I don't.

She can be fickle.

tiger said...

1) 4+ minutes out of my life I will never get back

2) Mike White has a girlfriend? That's why they call it 'acting'.

3) What was the point?

m stone said...

Mitchell the Bat is my favorite person.

Sorun said...

Good question. Even when I was married, my wife's favorite person was (probably) her mother.

Who's my favorite person? I'll have to think about it.

kentuckyliz said...

Knowing that I am a beloved daughter of God, and that's true for eternity, relieves me of the insecurity of trying to earn and keep Most Favored Person status in someone else's eyes. People are fickle. They too chase after bacon (metaphorically or literally). God is not fickle.

I have lived you with an everlasting love
And you are mine.

Inga said...

Whores,
I actually really really like Garage, but my favorite would be Ritmo. Whores favorite person is David Duke.

Inga said...

In my offline life, my favorite people are my grandchildren. I think I might be theirs, for a while anyway until they find/ found a best friend in kindergarten.

Inga said...

I even like Cedarford, go figure.

somefeller said...

Miranda July is very cool and pretty much everything she does is great.

whoresoftheinternet said...

Inga the lying Obama whore:

Whores favorite person is David Duke.
---And yours are Jeremiah Wright, Trayvon Martin, the Jena 6, and Tim Wise.

actually really really like Garage
--Liars of a feather...


I think I might be theirs
---Ha. Doubtful. Left-wing families do not love each other.

for a while anyway until they find/ found a best friend in kindergarten.
---Better be a non-white one, right, whore? Down with whitey!

Honestly, you can't make whores like Inga up.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I watched the video. I don't get it. What was the point?

wyo sis said...

Unfortunately someone has made Whores up. He's the conservative Andy. Just another obstacle to overcome.

Inga said...

Whores,
Do you really believe the shit you spout, are you truly that weird? Left wing families, what is that? I have a daughter who is a conservative, married to a conservative, it's her children I speak of.

Gawd Whores, you are a freak.

Erika said...

If we're talking about Althousia: Angelyne is someone's favorite commenter, that someone being me.

No stalky-stalky or anything, Angelyne! Your comments just rule, that's all!

Broomhandle said...

Wife and Mom. Probably No.2 with the kids and dogs.

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Inga the lying Obama whore:

Do you really believe the shit you spout, are you truly that weird?
---That you are a lying piece of shit, as is Garbage Pail? That facts do not lie? Yes, whore, I do believe that "shit."

Left wing families, what is that?
---Baby killers and white-hating freaks like you have zero love in your hearts. You would slaughter your child for a paycheck, and gleefully see them murdered for the advancement of black people.

I have a daughter who is a conservative, married to a conservative, it's her children I speak of.
---"Conservative" in Inga's rotten, lie-filled little mind is someone who thinks abortion should be ok for all 9 months, but shouldn't happen after birth.

Gawd Whores, you are a freak.
---And you are a lying, cold-hearted cum dumpster.

Inga said...

Whores, you obviously are disengaged from reality. A normal person would suspect they were crazy and seek help, after saying such things, especially on a public forum.

Get thee to the shrink!

wyo sis said...

The next obvious question is are you the least favorite person of anyone?
I'd have to put Whores in the top 2 or 3 of my least favorite people on Althouse.

bagoh20 said...

You are my favorite person. Yes you, the one reading this right now. You know how I feel about you, and nobody else even comes close. I feel us getting closer every day. Someday we should get together and have a drink, and after we get feelingly good, you can lend me some cash.

Inga said...

Hey Wyo Sis, you are my favorite conservative woman here at Althouse. You stick to your principles, yet aren't closed minded.

Baggy, why thankyou! Can I borrow $50.00?

Indigo Red said...

My cat, Alice, thought of me as her favorite person. Alice doesn't live here anymore; she died last year.

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Inga the lying Obama whore:

you obviously are disengaged from reality.

---Said the woman who has repeatedly LIED about her position on Obama's arrest of Nakoula Nakoula---alwys changing her lies to claim she has been consistently in support of whatever story Obama is promulgating today.

A normal person would suspect they were crazy and seek help,
---To a leftist, being a bloodthirsty babykiller IN NO WAY means you're a bad person.

Leftism is never having to say you're sorry.

after saying such things, especially on a public forum.
--In these trying times, with all your leftist lies on display, the truth-tellers are subversives.

Get thee to the shrink!
--Any truth against leftist ideals is a sign of a mental disease.

David said...

My wife. Usually.

When her kids are not around.

Some of my kids. Sometimes.

And what Rusty said.

(Inga, don't feed that troll. If you refrain I will make you my favorite person for a day at least.)


Inga said...

OK David, it's a deal. I like being the favorite.

If we can consider non-humans, then I'm "very confident" that I'm the favorite person of my pets as well as the billions of microorganisms that inhabit me

whoresoftheinternet said...

@David:

Inga, don't feed that troll
----Only to a leftist is telling the truth being a troll.

Unemployment: 7.9%
Number of murdered children called abortions since Roe v. Wade: +50 million
Gas prices: $4/gallon
Embassies: in flames
1st Amendment: People arrested for making movies that criticized religion
Race: Black panthers released from jail because they are black
Media: NBC lies about George Zimmerman case.
Inga: Still a lying, two-faced, cold-hearted little turd.
Garbage Pail: Still a liar.

Enjoy the decline, morons!

Chip Ahoy said...

Are you anybody's favorite person?

No

Are you certain?

Yes.

Here, have yourself an orange.

Have two oranges, one for yourself and one for your favorite person.

No wait, have three oranges, one for yourself, one for your favorite person, probably your girlfriend,and one for your favorite person's favorite person, probably her son or daughter.

No, wait, wait, wait, have FOUR oranges! One for you, one for your favorite person, and one for your favorite person's favorite person and another orange for that favored person's favorite person.

No, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, have FIVE oranges! One for... no fuck it all, here, have an orange tree.

traditionalguy said...

Inga just reminded me why she has become my favorite commenter. She has it all: guts, wit and a basic goodness.

Sorry, Inga. Feel free to disavow knowing me.

Inga said...

Ah Trad Guy, you know you're my favorite lawyer here.

Saint Croix said...

I didn't much care for the short, but Miranda July's feature is fantastic

Lem said...

No...

But I am a favorite mistake.

Lem said...

Actually... I'm not 100% sure.

Lem said...

Considering the truth unconditionally.

Susan Stewart Rich said...

Made me think of all the people I dearly love, and yet not one is a favorite of mine. I don't think I'm the favorite person of any one and I don't think I'd want to be.

If someone asked me who my favorite person was, say on a first meeting, or an interview, I'd feel a great amount of pity for that person either because they put people in those types of catergories or they wanted me to do it (and laugh at me later).

Skookum John said...

Although I disagree with most of what Inga says, I do like her better than Whores, by a mile.

Sorry dude. The constant stream of potty mouth insults gets old fast, no matter how meritorious they occasionally are. You seem to be dead set on seeing just how far our hostess's "good faith" policy can be pushed.

Inga reminds me of my grandma, a Roosevelt Democrat with a good heart but inexplicable political inclinations.

Freeman Hunt said...

"Knowing that I am a beloved daughter of God, and that's true for eternity, relieves me of the insecurity of trying to earn and keep Most Favored Person status in someone else's eyes."

This is good. And true.

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Skookum Joe:

Sorry dude.
---History does not accept your apology.

The constant stream of potty mouth insults gets old fast, no matter how meritorious they occasionally are.
---The truth cannot be as richly garmented as the lies of the left.

You seem to be dead set on seeing just how far our hostess's "good faith" policy can be pushed.
---Easy Annie A. the abortion-lover has no good faith.

Inga reminds me of my grandma, a Roosevelt Democrat with a good heart but inexplicable political inclinations.
---Like lying about Obama all the time, murdering children, and destroying the first amendment.

But it's ok, because she's "sweet" when she says it.

You're a maroon, as Bugs Bunny would say. If you actually threw out trash like Inga, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Mitchell the Bat said...

I watched The Future last night, Miranda July's latest full-length movie.

It was the most moving film I have ever seen, in my entire life, and I've been seeing movies regularly now for nearly forty years. It really hit a nerve.

I know saying that must seem like hyberbole or a joke or something, coming from me, but it's true.

It would be a gross oversimplification to say it's a movie about the persistence of love.

But it would be perfectly accurate to say that hard-noses need not waste their time on a film about people so desperate for something other people want to take for granted.

Whoever you are, though, reading this comment, odds are you're not really the hard-nose you think you are. Odds are you're just like everybody else, in the way that matters most.

Mitchell the Bat said...

Miranda July gave an interview and was asked what advice she'd offer to the two main characters in The Future.

Here's her answer: "When you don't know what to do, you don't have to do something. I feel like that's sort of Sophie's mistake, whereas Jason kind of doesn't know what to do at a certain point but keeps on going, doesn't make any radical moves at that point of unknowing. I think there is something about panic that can make you make a sudden left turn because the moment is so unbearable you feel like you have to act to get out of it. Sometimes it's okay not to act."

It is worth noting that Althouse has expressed the same view, from time to time.

Full interview, here.
