David Cross sure is one humorless, unlikable cocksucker
 
2012-12-07 05:08:38 PM  
I didn't identify with any of those answers...I DID, however, think it was cool that they "interviewed" David Bazan. I unfortunately missed his show here in PHX on Thursday.

I went into that article hoping David Cross wouldn't live to his stereotype and he totally. He just HAD to mention that he doesn't watch teevee like us stupid folk do yet he knows about Community and Louie and watches them.

Why not just say Community and add a joke instead of reminding everyone why you're irrelevant.

Dave Holmes is right - if you have the opportunity to see Silver Linings Playbook, do yourself a favor and do so. A fantastic film.

PossiblyCanadian: David Cross sure is one humorless, unlikable cocksucker


He's a total biatch. He's a bitter, horrible asshole. I've seen him live, he a small, horrible, bitter little man. He is probably one of the most evil junkie comedians in America. He makes me feel normal and for that reason I can never repay him.

And of course he had to go with The Bicycle Theif as his favorite movie of 2012.

Favorite novel of 2012? As I Lay Dying.

Andrew WK?

What a talentless ass clown.

Maybe Tucker Max, Drew and Andrew can drink until they crap their pants. It'll be epic.

I just assume that he has no indoor voice.

His voice only sounds low on Breaking Bad because of skilled audio mixers.

Foisting Tim & Eric on all of us set him back quite a few points in my book. He's since made some of them back with Saul Goodman.

He's also right about Frank Turner, although his album came out in 2011. Lee Fields and the Expressions' "Faithful Man" has been my favorite album for this year.

I think Jen Kirkman is funny. I've never seen her on Chelsea Lately, but she is good off the cuff, in standup, and in various other projects you can find online (podcasts, Drunk History, etc.) She has also recently started some pretty neat stuff relating to combatting rampant misogyny on the internet and elsewhere (i.e. everywhere). But I'm aware this is Fark so we won't talk about that.

I also fail to see the connection between Andrew WK and Tucker Max. WK promotes a lifestyle of positive thinking and self-determination, inspires lots of disenfranchised young people to enjoy and embrace themselves. But I suppose if you just heard him say "party" a couple times and decided that was enough information for you to extrapolate out his entire personality/public persona, you could do that too.

I never understood how anyone likes his music yet shiats on other metal in the same vein, the old "hes classically trained" doesnt hold up since a lot of metal musicians are from the same arena.

David Cross is a bitter little man and completely humorless thinking everything/one is beneath him.

Eww, was he really involved in the creation of that show? Oh well, Mr. Show still more than makes up for that abomination.

I don't own a TV and I don't know any of the TV shows David Cross mentioned.
 
2012-12-07 09:38:12 PM  
Also, when did it become a thing for girls aspiring to be comediennes to write tell-alls about their shiatty taste in men they bang?

tee hee. I know Julie Klausner's book was like what you described, which was a major bummer. Can't think of any others.

It's a bit much though to call a nationally touring comedian and staff writer and performer on a tv show an "aspiring comedienne"

2012-12-07 10:43:44 PM  
David Cross can star in nothing but shiat for the rest of his life but having Mr. Show and a major role on Arrested Development on his resume puts him above the majority of comedians.

FraggleStickCar: tee hee. I know Julie Klausner's book was like what you described, which was a major bummer. Can't think of any others.


I wasn't aware of her work (seriously, I really don't have a TV and haven't had one in over a decade) but any time I see a "hey, look at all the poor choices I make as a white female who is sexually active" I equate the author with Chelsea Handler who is really, really effing terrible. I actually got excited because by the title I thought it was going to be a scathing Steve Albini-esque attack on dudes who take their terrible music too seriously, but instead she comes off as pretty pathetic and not worth the time. Apparently, her standup/writing for other people career is coming along, though.

Sadly enough, I wouldn't be surprised if the nicest, most personable comedians are Dane Cook, Denis Leary and those four redneck guys.

Possibly because they all actually work in the entertainment industry, have friends in the business, and don't want shiat for singling any one person out?

BUCK YEAH!

Actually, probably not, because it's late and we all need to be up early to catch tomorrow morning's episode thread in the Entertainment tab, but yeah, last summer, Andrew W. K. held an hour-long address/Q&A at Canterlot Gardens on the important matter of partying hard.

i291.photobucket.com

Q: "...about, like, the brony musicians, who get inspired by the show? How do you feel about, like, stuff like that?"

A: "I think any place you can get inspiration at all is golden. You know, any way that you can muster up motivation to do anything in this world, let alone make music, is golden. The things I've seen, for example, the fan videos - we've talked about the cupcakes video [audience cheers] - I know it's controversial - it's quite gruesome - anything that allows you stay up, you know, for more than twelve hours at a time, and do some work? Then, you know, it- it should be cherished. And the fact that you're finding motivation enough to even be here let alone make music, don't let go of that, y'know? I think it's definitely fantastic."

But the fact that I'm not the only one who remembers the event just made my night 20% cooler. Thanks.

I can attest to Patton being a good guy. He even gave me a cupcake once at an all night horror movie fest.

Craig Ferguson. Drew Carey. Norm MacDonald. Mitch Hedberg.

Funny people who don't/didn't need a reason for acceptance to be funny.

/Craig Ferguson put it better than I ever could; "Mitch Hedberg was a comedian. He made people laugh. That's all. It's what makes him a legend and the rest of us HACKS."

David Cross is a total dick. A lot of his standup is laugh-at-retards-falling-down kind of stuff or him making fun of celebrities. His post-9/11 comedy album had a track making fun of how self-centered people got over the event.

He doesn't even try to hide what a penis he is.
