  1. And it's wet! ...Too wet...
  2. Got my commencement photo taken. Graduation here I come.
  3. Right, well, the one thing that skews my judgement is I'd personally be looking at apartments in either New York or Boston (I'm moving back home after college for about a year to scrounge some money together to be able to get back to New York, but for the sake of this I'm lumping Boston in as well). If I saw that in either of those cities I'd jump on it with no hesitation, because that is way too good of a price point for those two places. I'll try to keep my opinion objective here and assume I'm moving to a town/city that's actually reasonable to live in. On the outset that seems pretty good, considering the amenities it comes with, but I don't know how essential those actually are. They're nice bonuses, but if I'm not using them everyday I feel like I'd just be paying more money for other people to have fun. The option to just go to a gym in my building would be nice, but I could also get a cheaper place and then spend, like, a couple hundred flat on a year membership to a gym, and then just save money every month because the apartment rent itself would be cheaper. Lounge is nice, billiards are nice, but again, how often would those be in use? I'd rather lounge around in my room so I don't have to wear pants, and if I wanna play billiards I could find a bar that has a table. The one bedroom is great, because I hate living with people - but the walk-in closet just seems excessive. Like, it's really cool to just have that, but I'd feel terrible if I couldn't fill it because then there's just this giant thing staring at me everyday while I get ready reminding me that I'm spending $1000 so I can have that. (Also, as an aside for the lounge thing - my girlfriend's place has a lounge with a billiard table for all apartment-goers, as well as a rooftop lounge with an outdoor movie theater; I'm over there practically everyday and I see maybe one person a week actually lounging, and even fewer people playing billiards, and it seems while the rooftop gets the most usage out of those three it's practically inaccessible during the winter so you can only really take advantage of it for a handful of months out of the year). And then of course there's the normal money situation - how much do I currently have, and would I make enough from my job each month to actually afford this + food + student loans + a life or would I only be able to afford this apartment. I think I'd scope out my options a bit more, but I'd definitely keep that place on my radar (and also definitely check it out so I can confirm if I like the space or if it's actually just a total scam). But I'm also overly cautious and wary about everything because I don't know anything, so I'm not a good barometer for these sorts of things.
  4. Hadn't heard that, but me too. I've gotta get caught up on season 1, but it's so delightfully weird and charming and I can't believe a show like it exists, and I'm glad it's not getting cancelled.
  5. It really was. I'm really glad they went with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as opposed to Emma Watson and Miles Teller, too. As good as Teller was in Whiplash, I feel like that definitely would've been a trainwreck.

    Called out of retirement once again! 27a - It's Called "Gruzz" (Part 1) After coming into a slight bit of money, thanks to a refund check from the school, Squidward decides it's about time to do something nice for himself. Sizing himself up in the mirror, he comes to the startling realization that what he really needs in his life right now... is absolutely nothing. His life is great! It was silly of him to ever think otherwise! Not wanting to appear destitute, though, he decides to purchase a new shirt - this one, a slightly darker shade of brown. As he strolls around campus, he thinks he's looking, to put it subtly, fresh to death. However, soon he realizes that no one is actually paying attention to him anymore than normal. Not to be perturbed, Squidward goes around and asks Daphne, Eellen, Ray, and Peterpus point-blank if they notice anything particularly "swanky" about him. They, to put it subtly, don't. Feeling bummed, he slowly meanders through the campus, and eventually comes to the quad. It's here that he notices everyone has flocked and gathered around Yark, a once-outcast turned positively popular. Squidward quietly sneaks around the crowd and slithers his way up a nearby tree, trying to figure out what changed. At once, he noticed: Yark changed his style. Usually preferring too-tight mustard yellow button-downs, chinos tucked into his tube socks, and sandals, he now sports a fashionable tank top/slightly tilted flat-brim hat combo with flower shorts. Ever the egoist, Squidward decides, once and for all, he needs to change up his look - and not only that, but he knows he needs to call it something, too. Something catchy. Something that rolls off the tongue. He thinks for a moment, and then, just like that, he has it - it comes from his lips so gently, so softly, almost as if it were a word made to be said. He utters the name. He sends shivers up his own spine. He knows he stumbled onto something big. He knows he stumbled onto a style all its own. He knows he stumbled onto... "gruzz". Notes - Daphne, Eellen, Ray, and Peterpus are mostly absent, appearing only when Squidward questions them about his style. First appearances: Yark 27b - It's Called "Gruzz" (Part 2) The following day, after a shopping spree at Anchor & Algae, Squidward dons his new digs and bursts out of his room. Outfitted with a zebra-stripped shirt, bright red pants with pinstripes, orange sunglasses with blue lenses, blue shoes, and a brown scarf (the same color brown as his once-signature brown shirt), Squidward swaggers onto the scene. Down the halls, through the courtyard, in the classrooms, students and faculty alike are bewildered at this new, fashionable - and somehow more instantaneously cooler - Squidward. Squidward sits down at his usual lunch spot, and immediately his peers come to him. Taking pictures, asking for autographs, clamoring for more, falling as his feet, grabbing at his face. He'd be the talk of the town if the town wasn't speechless. He's questioned about this new look - what he calls it. It needs to have a signature name. Squidward, tilting his glasses slightly down, peering over his frames, smirks, and whispers a single word: "Gruzz". From the back of the crowd, Yark stands there, and quietly shuffles off. As he passes, a few students yell at him to move out of the way. A few days pass, and Squidward's stock is on the rise. His newfound sense of fashion has translated well to his self-esteem - once a cranky curmudgeon, he's now, as he says, "Gruzz". As he saunters, his own fashion sense turns into a way of life. Gruzz is no longer just about how you look - it's about how you carry yourself, it's about how you feel about yourself, it's about, to put it subtly, yourself. As this transformation begins to take place, he notices Yark - alone, probably cold, back to his old sense of fashion. Squidward can't stand for this - if Gruzz is about anything, above all else, it's about knowing what YOU can do to increase YOUR happiness. And for Squidward? Helping Yark would do just that. In the dead of night, Squidward knocks on Yark's door. Upon opening, in an instant, Squidward is inside. He wears his old outfit, and carries a bag in his hand. He drops it in front of Yark. He tells him he needs to learn to be Gruzz. Not waiting to hear Yark say anything else, Squidward slinks back out of the door. The next day, while Squidward is sitting at his usual bench, he hears a clamor. An uproar. He turns his head, and sees the new Gruzz: Yark. Braving the crowds, Yark makes it to Squidward's bench, sits down next to him, and thanks him for his clothes, his life style, and his everything. Squidward eats a bite of his sandwich, and says "that's what Gruzz is all about". As he does, the bench ascends - slowly at first, and then getting ever faster. Below them, the crowd is gathered, frantically shouting - cheering. They've witnessed something magical these past few days, and it's a magical something they won't soon forget. Notes - The first appearance of the clothing store, Anchor & Algae; Peterpus, Ray, Eellen, and Daphne are mostly absent in this episode, appearing only at the end crowd shot Trivia: - Though the characters claim they will never forget what happened, they most probably will
  7. Yeah that one's great. I think my all-time favorite would have to be Matt Mira. I really love his 2+ hour episodes (I think this one is at least 3 hours, which tend to be absolutely amazing), and Matt Mira's break-up story is just so good.
  8. I can't believe someone else listens to podcasts! And it only took two years! Not on as big of a kick as I used to be, but I still listen every now and then. You Made it Weird is my absolute favorite (especially when he has female guests - Pete Holmes gabbing with gals never disappoints, and I could listen to those episodes all day) This is Why You're Single is also really decent and, as lame as it may sound, helped me deal with being single Nerdist's Writers Panel is good, Rob Has a Podcast is infuriatingly addictive, Narrative Breakdown is good when they decide to release episodes. JV Club is hit or miss for me.
  9. Guy Ritchie's King Arthur is going to be my favorite movie of the year.
  10. - Lots of hair/beard care stuff - Dishonored 2 - Framed Perspective vol. 1 - Gift cards to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Dunkin Donuts - Hella clothes - Money - And my girlfriend gave me a framed picture of us for my desk
  11. I haven't. I couldn't decide if I thought it looked good or if it looked really stupid. Should I binge it over break?
  12. Ben 10 is, like, the most successful Cartoon Network show ever as far as merchandising is concerned (and I think longest running - four shows across nine years, 80 episodes per show). Rebooting the show in a style more akin to Teen Titans Go means kids nowadays that either weren't around or weren't old enough to watch the original will watch this in a heartbeat because it's already like that other show they like, and getting a whole new audience means they can make a whole other vault full of cash from merchandise (and they already have designs and ideas for what to sell - they won't have to do much work at all with this). We might not want it, but we grew up with the original. Just because we aren't the target demographic doesn't mean it shouldn't have been made.
  13. It's well worth the wait.
  14. That art style is an insult to the concept of sight.
