Intro for December 19, 2014

Dear Gossips,

Am I allowed to say now that the final episode of Serial was… frustrating? Frustrating is a safe word, right? It’s been frustrating for a few weeks now. I finally gave in and started googling about 10 days ago because I just, you know, like, I dunno, (in Sarah speak), certain questions weren’t being asked. I felt deflated to start the day. And then…by the end of the night…

If we’re talking final episodes, Colbert’s was perfect.

And it’s not because he had so many celebrity guests (Cookie Monster was the best, obviously). You know what I appreciate about Stephen Colbert? Or at the least the version of Colbert that was presented on The Colbert Report, who’s now achieved immortality alongside Santa, Unicorn Lincoln, and Alex Trebek (HAHAHAHA)?

It’s that he was ALWAYS Colbert.

There was no crying. There’s no crying in baseball, and there’s no f-cking crying in satire!

There is, however, a new, exciting question: Who are you now Stephen Colbert? See you in September.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

December 19, 2014 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Nadine! Merry Christmas! From… Hayley. Because she needed me to “help convince my mom I listen to her”. Apparently you’re not the “candle stick, gardening glove, hey-i-made-you-another-f*cking-craft kinda mom because that would be easy”. Instead, what you wanted for Christmas was a teenager not being self-absorbed for a change. Full Story

 

Intro for December 18, 2014

Dear Gossips,

What I really want to do here is to write about Serial. But it’s 9 o’clock in the morning and many of you probably haven’t listened to it yet, the final episode. Fine. Can we talk about how and why there are only 12 episodes?

Why not extend it all season like a network television show? Who says Serial has to be cable? Who says Serial has to be HBO? It’s not like we WON’T RUN OUT OF QUESTIONS, GODDAMMIT! If I could figure out how to do that, I would have posted that last sentence in ever increasing font sizes so you could appreciate how I’m gradually getting louder and Louder and LOUDER.

At what point does something become a hate-listen the way a television show becomes a hate-watch? And are we there yet with Serial?

Am tempted, when it slows down next week, to do a live-blog about this so we can all yell our theories at each other and end up blueballed and unsatisfied. Full Story
