Also 'SOMEONE PUT THAT ON YOUTUBE' grooooan releeevant
but he was never cool. yeah free pass for the office and stuff.
the baby entertainer bit in that spy kids clip made me laugh though. i pretended to myself it was a cough.
(scroll down to video at the bottom)
if he keeps laughing I might go back on the 'free pass for The Office' thing.
I've never like him, not a huge office fan and his stand up was just him reading out 'facts' he'd printed from the internet, and he just seems like a general arsehole, though the podcasts were quite good, but not because of him.
I like everything else though
That will really show him
and not just a massive fucking embarrassment. Oy.
but miss the wishy washy middle of the road middle class social aspects of the going to church?
quite enjoyed him in curb this season too
Generally not a fan of him though.
but yeah, office etc
I miss you, man.
i probably would
I'm gonna come back in an hour or so when I've woken up a bit, this is nonsense.
OK, in that case, "Like Ricky Gervais then"
If anything he should be treated with the same disdain as modern Weezer because he could and should be doing much better things than the raft of unspeakable shit he's inflicted upon the public.
but his film work has been very hit and miss. Saying that, I don't think there's a famous person on this planet who is responsible for making me laugh as much as Ricky Gervais.
Gervais doesn't have THAT much (yet), and he is co-creator of one of the best comedies ever. That's good enough for me, no matter how insufferable he might be.
What do they believe? I'm an atheist, but that doesn't automatically make me one, right? Anyone care to explain it in a very short post?
really hilarious and necessary.
Roughly speaking, the word humanist has come to mean someone who:
- trusts to the scientific method when it comes to understanding how the universe works and rejects the idea of the supernatural (and is therefore an atheist or agnostic)
- makes their ethical decisions based on reason, empathy, and a concern for human beings and other sentient animals
- believes that, in the absence of an afterlife and any discernible purpose to the universe, human beings can act to give their own lives meaning by seeking happiness in this life and helping others to do the same.
that sounds fair enough, and like what I think. I don't think I need to be in some kind of club with a magazine about it though.
There are plenty of humanists who take more of an agnostic view of supernatural forces, who take the view that IF they exist, they are beyond current scientific understanding - or are unkowable - if they exist at all.
Humanism is often hijacked by atheists with identity problems
meh. i thought this idea of 'credibility' was a bit dead-in-the-water. maybe spy kids 3d is really good, who knows?
this was kind of funny
It features the ability to scratch n' sniff
oh fuck. send him to the dogs then
and all the 'burn it' / 'get not arrested' jokes have been made, so all I have to say is:
they aren't the Spy Kids. Why have the changed the Spy Kids?
you're like the people who ruined home alone
I genuinely don't get it.
but I think I might really hate him as a person.
I was enjoying a tv interview with JJ Abrams about Super 8 just recently when Gervais suddenly entered the room and took over. I think he's one of the producers or something. He was just rude and unfunny and completely wasted the second half of the interview. Of course, he made sure that he told us that he'd put $10 million up for the film just in case we weren't aware how loaded he is. I know he's a bellend but I was just aghast at the crassness of it all.
had anything to do with Super 8
nothing whatsoever to do with it.
So, in retrospect he wandered in to an interview and took it over despite having no involvement with the film at all. His $10m comment was obviously just a joke.
