God, this is awful. I can't tell if she's trying to slut shame Ms Cake Farts, or if she's just no good at being funny. Perhaps it is both?

Please explain this bit to me, JHM, in as much detail as possible.

This may be awful, but in my mind I can totally hear The Barenaked Ladies covering this.

ashtar.
Five stars because people were mean to JHMF on WHTM. :(

There's nothing worse than people making jokes about fucking internet bullshit (HAHA HAVE YOU SEEN VINES, OH MAN!) except people making jokes about fucking internet bullshit that has to be explained whcih defeats the entire purpose of joking about a video.
Old_Zircon
Isn't this also about an internet thing that's literally about20 ears old? Does that make it better or worse?

John Holmes Motherfucker
I don't think you know what the point of this is. This isn't trendy internet references. Just like she said, its about dreams. Weird, crazy dreams.

HOWARD STERN.

I'm sorry, that joke wasn't funny. But then again, neither is Rachel Bloom.

John, I watched a full epsiode of the show last night. It was really really bad, man, like maybe she owed somebody money or something bad. I understand this is real to you or something but by no sensible standard is this good.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Howard Stern? You mean he mentioned the cake fart video? Yeah, I guess that probably seems like the exact same thing to you.

John Holmes Motherfucker
You really do seem pretty stupid. Are you sure you were watching your TV, and not your refrigerator or something?

EvilHomer
Hey Mr Holmes, you should check out that new submission, entitled "Ask a Porn Star: Porn Set Horror Stories".

Is it just me, or does Cherry Torn (7:38) look a bit like Rachel Bloom?

Doc Victor
Multiple people have asked you what it is you like about this show and all you've given is generic replies about how it's a groundbreaking work of genius. How about some specifics, that would be more polite than calling people stupid.

>>Multiple people have asked you what it is you like about this show and all you've given is generic replies about how it's a groundbreaking work of genius. How about some specifics, that would be more polite than calling people stupid.

Was I rude? Oh NO! This looks like a job for POLITENESSMAN!

>>Doc Victor
Five stars for reinforcing the fact that this is a mostly unfunny woman who would be more entertaining filmed getting it from both ends on the bangbus.

Look, I don't know you. You really do seem to be dumber than a box of dirt, but who knows? First, second, third, fourth, and fifth impressions can be misleading,

If you're curious, I can't help but notice that you seem to be on the internet. That would mean that you have instant access to all four episodes, dozens of critics, chat rooms, the twitter profiles of the entire cast, trailers, music videos, The official website of the show, the official website and youtubechannel of Rachel Bloom, and the IMDB page. I understand that my opinion is only my opinion. But that's all I got, and its all that you're ever going to get from me.

Here's 23 critics

And here's a site that I discovered where you can find a lot of useful links, if you really are curious.:

Good luck!


P.S. Who remembers Politienessman? He was a comic in the National Lampoon during the seventies, and then, incredibly, he turned up in the 80s in TV commercials for a long distance carrier.

EvilHomer
"Being on the internet" does not necessarily mean that you have the time or the inclination to go looking through four episodes, twenty Twitter pages, and a half million or whatever chatrooms. People need a reason to care before they'll put that much effort into something which (judging by your submissions) looks to be quite tedious, and you're not doing a very good job of providing such a reason.

Rachel Bloom is a genius, and even though her show is suffocating in the ratings, huge sections of the media and the internet are falling all over themselves. Crazy ExGirlFriend gets better every week. If we get one season that'll be worth 50 years of Two and Half Men

I've already won this argument, and I'm taking my victory lap. Some of you will get caught up; some never will. It's not really my problem.
EvilHomer
>> her show is suffocating in the ratings (but) huge sections of the media are falling all over themselves


So, in other words, her television network is trying to astroturf her, but audiences aren't buying it?

I'm serious about not understanding this video, John. It comes off as incredibly awkward and uncomfortable to watch; my problem is, I'm not sure whether this awkwardness is intentional (i.e. the point of this song is to make sex-workers feel guilty about their career choice, and make the rest of us feel guilty for watching them), or whether it's simply the result of her being a terrible comedian. Knowing the sort of female celebrities you're interested in, either scenario seems equally likely. So what's the deal here? What's her angle with this?

" huge sections of the media and the internet are falling all over themselves"


This is not a good metric for quality.

Also the irony of Howard Stern having already covered this in the late 90s.

Howard Stern.

>>So, in other words, her television network is trying to astroturf her, but audiences aren't buying it?

No the Network sort of dumped it. It was developed for Lifetime, something happened, and they stuck it on the CW.

Its biggest problem is that its a feminist show with an ironic, sexist name, and that's kind of gotten between the show and its potential audience, but there's been a l And it's I just found out today that the latest ratings have been picking up, so that's good news. If you want to learn more, you can bloody well google it, I'm to busy to start chasing you round and round the cobbler's bench today.

Hey, Rachel liked my tweet! Check it! It's relevant!

The word "Girlfriend" is sexist now?! I think you need to start hanging out with some better feminists, Mr Holmes.

But hey, congrats on the like! I mean that, you work hard and it's good to see you're being rewarded.

>>The word "Girlfriend" is sexist now?! I think you need to start hanging out with some better feminists, Mr Holmes.

I'm not sure if I can explain explain why, but I feel like the ideal way to respond to this would be with random trombone noises, like Charlie Brown's

>>But hey, congrats on the like! I mean that, you work hard and it's good to see you're being rewarded.

more trombone noises.

I've actually been liked several times and retweeted twice by Rachel, but I'm particularly proud of this tweet, applying the cake fart song to the giant pretzel scene. The Cake Fart song was literally the last of her music videos that i played, because believe it or not, I thought the title was dumb. Now it's my favorite, because it's about letting your freak flag fly.

I've also been liked and/or tweeted by three other cast members, The cast is just amazing. Even the fat chick can tap dance! They've all been on Broadway, and from the behind-the scenes pix and videos they post, they're clearly having a great time being on TV, if only for a little while.

EvilHomer
I... I was being nice to you. I gave you a compliment, about a thing you earned. How does THAT warrant a trombone?!

If you'd rather I be mean, I could say something like, I dunno, I bet that Twitter account is run by a CW network intern, and all they do is use computer software to find people hashtagging their show, then re-tweet the post by rote - BUT I'M NOT going to say that, because I am genuinely happy for you, and I hope that when you've made your first social media million dollars, you will remember what a good and supportive friend I have been.

John Holmes Motherfucker
A trombone is a very versatile instrument.

she's fully competent and skilled
........and 0% good, insightful, witty, etc.

This was not posted here ironically.

EvilHomer
But the fact that JHM posts this unironically is, in itself, a source of evil!

It is a difficult video to rate.

John Holmes Motherfucker
You can't post irony ironically.

Old_Zircon
Irony doesn't really belong in comedy anymore. There was a time when it did, but irony has been marketers' turf since the late 90s. And hipsters, but hipsters and marketing are two sides of the same coin.

John Holmes Motherfucker
So are you saying that irony is hip? Or that it's not hip?

EvilHomer
Irony doesn't belong in comedy anymore because irony came to be expected; it ceased to be ironic. Of course, the irony here is that, because irony does not belong in comedy anymore, irony is now no longer expected, and thus it's use as a comedic device can be ironic again.

In other words, irony has gone from cutting edge, to passť, to artfully passť anti-humor - or, nearly has. Personally, I do not believe that irony has achieved sufficient levels of passť-ness to gain new life as a form of post-PoMo anti-humor - but then again, waiting until the time is right to bring irony back is exactly what people would *expect*! The optimum time to do something is also the least ironic time to do something, so maybe we should all start being ironic *now*, instead?


As for your question, John, you're obviously a newbie at this whole "being hip" thing. Hipness is not hip, unless you're being ironically hip, which is very hip indeed. Or that's how it used to be, at least, before irony became a victim of its own success. The thing to remember here is that irony can be used to be hip, or not to be hip, and that the levels of hipness and irony which result from this, depend heavily upon the context of both the ironist himself, and his audience.

GENERALLY SPEAKING, irony is no longer seen as "hip", or rather, irony is seen as being TOO hip - insistently, self-consciously hip - which, as I mention in the previous paragraph, is very unhip indeed. But your mileage may vary.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Irony dates back to Sophocles, is awesome, and always has been awesome.

Irony has always been an element of the popular culture, but it became pervasive around the 80s, with David Letterman and the Simpsons. Irony is still permissive in the the popular culture, and it's still awesome, but it's no longer new, so it's pretty much been ruined for hipsters. Good riddance.
