I meant more in comedy. It was skinny nerdy less attractive white guys with glasses.

I mean, let’s be real, there’s never been a bad time to be a white guy, I just meant in comedy the unspoken thru joke underneath so many comedies was skinny white guy “unexpectedly” wins

I dunno. For me it was the early 2000s that this was going around my friend group. And, in my opinion, it very well represents what the comedy tastes were at the time

It’s so emblematic of the comedy of the early 2000s. I don’t know how to describe it, but the skinny, white, nerdy guy being “too cool” was like the running joke. That’s not even it, but man, what a time to be a skinny, white guy, huh? You had all the heroes

Yeah, I feel like I open mine twice, maybe three times/day.

Interesting. I don’t know the anime video part. My past this fits into was around 2003 when it came out. Was there a renaissance for the song in anime form later on? Or was his around the same time

Makes sense. You don’t strike me as much of a “reader.”

Wow. What a blast from the past. Middle school/early high school gold right here. Unironically a fuckin bop though. And an honest-to-god decent punk song. Like…way moreso than a lot of things at the time that called themselves “punk.”

If I got to control how the story was told and had better writing/storytelling skills? Or if you had a really skilled writer with access to my brain and memories? I could probably get a 75-85 out of it. I’ve definitely had some interesting things happen in my life. The lack of thematic journey would be where I struggle though. The best stories have payoff and a struggle to overcome. Which, of course I have. But none so large that I could base my entire life story on it. Maybe someone embellishing a little bit could scrounge one up, but tell me any biopic that doesn’t do that.

the chick won the freaking World Cup, the dude only won the champions league

They actually both won the treble with their club teams his season. She just won the WC on top of that.

It’s a good a guess as any. Which makes you…a legend.

Man, these guys have changed their sound. I didn’t realize they put out a new album. I’ll have to give it a new listen. Honestly A Laughing Death In Meatspace was the last I really got into, but after listening to The Drones and getting such a similar taste, I think a change in direction might be good for them. I like their sensibilities, but maybe got a little tired with their specific sound—which was pretty unique, but doing a unique thing is only unique for so long. Thanks for the post, I’m putting their new stuff in my roto

Lol ah, I just totally missed the joke. Although, in my defense, he only things that are ingestible twice are things you pull out of your own shit.

Insane. I just needed to share this with someone who might give a shit. And this community might not be the place, but still. Needed to call them out somewhere. Gross.
