Bojack Horseman rocked my fucking world.
Slow start of a show that initially seems like a run-of-the-mill knee-deep comedy, but then it gets real. It becomes less about the laughs and more of a tragic character study. I have not been the same after watching the entire thing through.
If you’re feeling doubts after the first few episodes, just stick with it. Around episode 6 or 7 things really start to change. I’m obsessed. I want to watch it all over again ten times in a row. I related so much to a cartoon, middle-aged washed up horse.

Wow, they really knocked it out of the park on this one. I hope I have time to start watching this show over the weekend!
I’VE CRACKED THE CODE
FOOFIGHTERS.TV WILL BE WHERE THE FIRST EPISODE OF SONIC HIGHWAYS IS UPLOADED BEFORE THE SERIES AIRS TO GIVE EVERYONE AN IDEA OF WHAT THE SHOW IS. LIKE A TEASER.
I saw the Strokes at FYF on Sunday. And I’m so sorry for all the Strokes fans out there - because I’m a fan, too - but I’ve never cussed out so many people in a crowd before. An army of shovy, rude people were pushing through waves of people from the back and made the whole thing impossible to enjoy. I lost my spot that I held for eight hours because people suddenly started showing up around 9 pm before HAIM to push everyone aside for a front row spot.
I was so on edge that HAIM threw a drumstick out and it landed on my shoulder. Not bothering to notice what it was, I started yelling “WHO’S THE FUCKING ASSHOLE WHO THREW THAT SHIT AT ME? FUCK YOU!”
Guy behind me took the drumstick and said he’d never even heard of HAIM before.
Or maybe I’m the awful person. That happens.
Gunn’s performance was not that of an action heroine or a television genius, and it was not meant to be. Skyler carries the weight of Walt’s actions. Plenty of people hated her for it, Walt sometimes included. But Gunn’s performance pushed both Walt and the people who wanted to see him as a hero to increasingly contrived and ludicrous justifications for treating Skyler like she was a worse person than Walt.
Gunn’s drawn face in the last two seasons of “Breaking Bad” might not have brought about the end of the anti-hero era in television. But Gunn’s performance marked the end of a time when the creators of such shows could get away with writing anti-heroes’ wives as flat, cartoonish characters, or when audiences could get away with worshiping difficult men without encountering strong opposition.
My question is (and please, don’t take this the wrong way) is why Dave couldn’t make the new Foo Fighter’s album another new project a la Sound City? The more I hear about this album, the more it seems like Sound City 2.0… Dave advertised and got the word out for Sound City easily, he could just as easily put word out on another new documentary/album combo. It just seems a little silly to label something as big as what Dave is doing as a Foo Fighters album. I’m withholding all judgment until I actually hear the album but I’m certainly distancing myself from expecting to enjoy a new CD from the Foo Fighters like I did in the same way as Wasting Light. Dave has every right to do what he wants as an artist but it’s just making me ask questions…
I feel exactly the same way. I mean, I hope that the rest of the band is as pumped as Dave is for this next venture because that’s really important. I don’t like the fusion of Sound City/personal projects and Foo Fighters.
The only difference is that I was super stoked about Wasting Light and had a great feeling about it. The promotion and everything for it was special and amazing… don’t think it can be recreated by going bigger.
But, of course, I’ll listen to the new album with an open mind and I’m excited for it and the tour. But yeah. I’m pretty down on the whole thing.
Yesterday was my first not-fun day on set. It was bound to happen. Complete shitstorm, but the footage turned out great. Everyone fucked up, including me. I’d be upset with myself if I was the only person who made a mistake. But everyone was contributing to the poisonous environment as a whole. Eeesh.
