Earlier today, we were all like….
But after hearing the news about The Maya Rudolph Show, we’re all like…
Congratulations on The Maya Rudolph Show getting an airdate, Maya! You know we’ll be watching. Everybody be sure to watch the premiere on May 19 at 10pm ET/PT, and you might just see some familiar faces (Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen and Chris Parnell, among others)…
Janelle Monaé as the musical guest!
SHUT UUUUUP I am so excited
So, like I know that I was born and raised in the deep south and everything, but there is no way that idea of harry potter books being considered a way to support practicing witchcraft, right?
Like, you guys knew people who’s parents wouldn’t let them read harry potter based on some religious rationale?
Fuck yes it was a thing.
I sat through at least half a dozen sermons on the evils of satanic imagery in children’s pop culture. Harry Potter was a favorite.
Pokemon was also touched on.
I dunno. I mean I grew up Southern Baptist in the South.
We’ve discussed Harry Potter a couple of times at church, one time is particular was at Sunday night group study when I was 12. The teacher and other adults tried to go down that path but then all of us students banded together and talked about what we actually took away from the book and the bigger themes beyond the magic.
One guy in the group, who ended up being the popular football player at school said “I think a lot of people just spend a lot of time looking for evil.” That stuck with me, and I wrote it in my Bible.
One of the adults said something like “well, I have learned something today.” So it’s not always terrible all the time.
Why do you think women identify with the show as strongly as they do?
I want a t-shirt of Allison Janney’s face with the text “MY VAN HOUTEN”.
What the hell is Twitter doing?
Yeah buddy, I do the same thing when I gargle mouthwash instead of drink the whole bottle but you don’t SEE ME SHOWIN OFF.
Why do dudes always wanna know your bra size tho, what are they gonna do, buy you bras?? Cause that would be very helpful bras cost a lot of money i would save a fortune
what the hecK do you guys think ur doing
I just called the vlogbrothers out on their shit in the comments of their latest video and people have been liking it yes this feels good
#if they’re so serious about gender equality then we need a fucking women on youtube panel at vidcon
The women on YouTube panel is happening! It’s been happening for a while but programming isn’t announced until much closer to the date, as it’s a bit of a behemoth to sort out. Anyway, Lex and I, (who have created and curated the womenonyoutube panel since its inception — this is the third one) submitted our full proposal months ago and it sped through, and we have been nothing but supported in this. Sorry I haven’t been more vocal about this — I just wanted to wait until the programming was announced, but I realise that it’s been a sticking point for a lot of people.
Also, the fact that it was outside last year wasn’t the vlogbrothers’ fault, for the record :) They’ve been nothing but incredibly supportive of it.
BUT I AM SO BEYOND HAPPY THAT EVERYONE IS EXCITED FOR/CARES SO MUCH ABOUT THIS PANEL WHICH MEANS THE WORLD TO LEX AND ME. #CAPSLOCK :)
What Rosianna said! Plus Hank actually tweeted the other day confirming that there definitely will be a Women on YouTube panel, an LGBTQ+ panel and a POC on YouTube panel. Also I think a lot of people misunderstand how these things are run and who makes those decisions, and think that John and Hank are the Ultimate Kings of VidCon - that’s not how that works. Two people aren’t running a con with over 10,000 guests.
(That doesn’t mean that Rosianna and I aren’t Ultimate Queens of VidCon, btw. Duh, we definitely are.)
I am a mechanism. A going thing.
I have the coolest friends. I flaunt my friends willingly.
