Hello, cream puffs! Welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread, in which we make ice cream sandwiches and eat them on boardwalks. JK! It’s our weekly space to commune, bitch, share secrets, and drop pieces of juicy gossip. Oh, and to post pet photos. Post a fucking pet photo, bitches.
This week, I did something weird. See, normally I log into Netflix and surf straight to Frasier and never look back, or I watch The Birdcage because I want to feel fabulous or Somewhere because I wanna cry. But this week, something came over me and I clicked “Play” on Gilmore Girls and I probably should have seen it as a call for help, but I didn’t, and now, here I am.
I’ve gotta admit — growing up, I did not watch this show. I vehemently did not watch this show. But isn’t that what Netflix is for? I’m supposed to watch new things, and make a list of them, and spend time doing something besides laughing in advance of the laugh track on That 70’s Show because I already know the entire plot. But I can’t just find hidden gems all by myself. I NEED HELP, GUYS.
So tell me, y’all: what are you watching this weekend? What’s the show you’re hooked on right now? Or, I guess, what shows used to give you life? (I’m down to watch The Golden Girls again and again, so feel free to suggest it.) It’s okay if you, unlike me, watch actual television in real time and come here to talk Scandal or How to Get Away with Murder. It’s okay if you, like me, have been watching the Words With Girls pilot over and over again. It’s also okay if you don’t like television or movies or fun at all and you’re just coming here to tell me about your amazing first date, the adorable outfit you wore to work this week, or the Halloween costume you bought your pets. Really, it’s okay as long as you comment on this post, preferably with a photo included of you and/or a fuzzy beast, and it’s even better if you comment in response to someone else because I think, on the whole, that sometimes we forget the importance of human connection when we lock ourselves in our rooms to watch — nevermind.
Tell me what you’re watching! I’ll be around to post photos of Eli and respond to you lovingly once I get back from Stars Hollow.
How To Post A Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo!This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix!
How To Post A Video In The Comments, Too:
1. Find a video on YouTube or Vimeo or WHATEVER and click “embed.” Copy that code, but first make sure it’s for 640px wide or less. If your player is too large, it will not display properly.
2. Copy the code and paste it directly into your comment.
3. Go forth and jam.
