Lawyers these days have no appreciation for the past. I remember when lawsuits actually meant something. Nowadays lawsuits are frivolous and full of fancy pants language. Everybody's just trying to make a quick buck.

The annoying thing about the old man is that they totally act like he is some kind of grandpa simpson character who was born in the early 1900's and lived through the depression. But the dude was born in 41. He was in his 20's during the 1960's. To put it in perspective, he is actually younger than the Pete Campbell character from Mad Men.

OK, I had heard it was significantly more than that. Guess my source was bad.

Still, $25K/episode for basically doing nothing except being the butt of a few jokes. There is no god.

Not only that, but they wrote a book. Plus thanks to the show, business at their shop has increased significantly. Plus from what I understand most of the stuff they sell at the shop is merch related to the show.

abhorrent1: That show sucks donkey balls


Of all of the "reality" shows, especially of the pawn/storage/auction variety, I find Pawn Stars to be the most enjoyable. They do get some honestly cool items, and they actually make a bit of an effort to give a little bit of history to the items. I could do with less of the dramatic music during negotiations, and I think the show would be a lot better if they simply had one more item per episode instead of whatever "character arc" they are doing for the episode. Otherwise, it's really not terrible.

Hardcore Pawn, on the other hand, is complete crap of the Jersey Shore variety.

What exactly is the point of this suit? I mean, I'm not seeing any mention of breach of contract or laws broken. Is there some sort of law saying you can never switch agents or something?

I think Chumlee adds more to the show than Corey. I keep hoping they'll replace Corey with Dick Sargent.

I kind of feel sorry for all of the normal pawn shops out there who had increased foot traffic thanks to Pawn Stars.

I don't mind that some stuff is staged - I get to learn some neat facts about antiques and collectibles - but when they get too heavy-handed with the obviously scripted material, I feel embarrassed to be watching the show.

Case in point: the episode where the lady sells the rare Bob Dylan vinyl to the shop. Dylan just HAPPENS to be playing in town that week. So, of course, they send Chumlee over to get the record signed. He just HAPPENS to run straight into Dylan outside the venue (sans security) and gets his autograph on the record.

But, punchline time - Chumlee has Dylan sign it "To Chumlee," thus killing the value.

LAUGH, IT'S FUNNY.

That's probably the worst skit in the whole show. One thing I'm curious about is how scripted the firing range segments are. If those are legit, then Chumlee has some uncanny skill when it comes to firing antique weaponry accurately.

Except that guy had no social game and I got the feeling people didn't really like him. Considering that in order to win the game you have to convince people to want to give you a million dollars, seems like a bad way to play the game.

I made my first audition video a few months ago, for The Job. (CBS, midseason, I think taping now.)

I should not make audition videos. I don't think I'd get a job as a poop taster with the abortion of a video I handed in. It actually took me an hour and a half to get from 'webcam set up and all I have to do is hit record' to 'actually hit record' because I spent the hour and a half trying to psych myself up to just talk into a camera for 2 1/2 minutes. (It took until Take 4, 40 minutes later, to actually complete the video without stumbling.) It was pure and utter babbling, I couldn't even watch it myself let alone whatever poor bastard on CBS' side had to sit through it, and that's only PARTIALLY because I'm not used to the sound of my own voice and I think I sound like a Star Wars nerd with asthma.

Oh, and also there's a nice, gigantic 'TRIAL CONVERTER PLEASE BUY FULL VERSION' right over my face. Because I had never had to convert a video before and I had no need for a converter until that moment.

Needless to say, I was not called back for semifinal interviews.

So five years older than Bill Clinton.

Or six years younger than RON PAUL.
