Three’s Company

28 Apr

But who is Janet?

We realized that this blog features a lot of two-person interaction—me and Molly, or Molly and Mazall, sometimes even Mazall and Aggy—but rarely have you delighted in seeing three of us together. It’s a shame, really. We have a a bond, a dynamic chemistry not often found among friends. We’re like Martin and Lewis (and Mazall), French and Saunders (and Mazall), or Fry and Laurie (and Mazall). To remedy that (also because it is a workday and we don’t have time for real blogging), here is a brief example of what happens when your three favorite Havers-of-Internets get together: Continue reading

Best of the Decade: Television

8 Dec
Television is good for you

Television is good for you

In just a few short weeks, the 00s will be over. With it will go our youth, our innocence, our good looks, our days of underage drinking and our fears of a belated Y2K meltdown. We here at We Have Internets (man, we should have thought of a better blog name) have decided to celebrate the decade the same way as every other newspaper, magazine, website, blog, Twitter feed and diary entry out there:  With a series of top 10 lists.  Each list will be brought to you by a different blogger.  Marc is first with the Top 10 TV Shows of the 2000s.

Criteria: The television show had to start sometime between 2000-2009 with the exception of The Sopranos and West Wing because Marc argued that they didn’t hit their stride until this decade. I consented because, eh, what the hell. No one reads this blog anyway.

List-maker’s Qualifications: Marc is a lonely, lonely man who watches a lot of TV.

My First Lost

I’m not very good at watching television. I change channels constantly, I will choose an old Seinfeld episode over something new, and I never remember to DVR anything. I watch TV for instant, mindless gratification and I have almost zero interest in a series that requires regular, sustained devotion. Until, that is, I can watch it on DVD.

Every once in a while, I will rent the first season of a popular show to see what all the fuss is about. Then I get really really into the show and spend an entire weekend lying on the couch in pajamas, eating Pepperidge Farm Goldfish out of the bag and refusing to answer my cell phone until I’ve finished all six seasons of Gilmore Girls and have found out whether sassy-mouthed Lorelei ever found true love. DVD marathons are how I came to know and love such gems as Arrested Development, Mad Men and Twin Peaks, the latter of which remains my favorite DVD-watching experience ever. In fall 2005, (college friend) Megan and I became so consumed by the creepy genius of Twin Peaks that we actually coordinated our schedules so that we could watch the show together (usually while eating donuts).
Because of my “wait ‘til it comes out on DVD” philosophy, I’m always at least one season behind a show’s devoted fan base. Sometimes I’m years (Six Feet Under) or decades (Northern Exposure) too late. So it’s not surprising that I’m just now getting around to watching Lost.

Video Daily Double

Drew goes national on our morning show!  Can’t decide which is more impressive:  that he managed to wake up at 5AM on a Saturday or that a salesman at J.Crew recognized him not 3 hours after the show…

(By the way, donating Drew did wonders for my CBS street cred.  If possible, I am even cooler than I once was.  Too bad it didn’t help in the whole “robbery” department…)
