“I have been sexually rejected by not one, but two guys who later went to clown college. I get super nervous whenever I hear a vacuum cleaner because when I was a kid my mom used to turn on the vacuum to drown out the sound of her and my dad fighting, which is why I rarely vacuum my apartment, like never. I have had three donuts so far today. Once in college, I pooped my pants a little bit at a Country Steaks all-you-can-eat buffet and I didn’t leave until I finished my second plate of shrimp. A couple months ago, I went on a date with my cousin. Wow… I am a mess. There is an 80% chance in the next election that I will tell all my friends that I’m voting for Barack Obama but I will secretly vote for John McCain. Here’s one, when I was a kid I used to put on my fanciest nightgown and then I would mix orange soda and cream soda in a champagne glass and sit in the dark and watch The Love Boat. Consequently, I have some weird sexual fantasy stuff about Gopher from The Love Boat. And I lied, I have had five donuts today.’”—Liz Lemon
It’s come to my attention that many of you are NOT watching the NBC hit 30 Rock.
I think you should reconsider.
While, in the past, it was sufficient to share my love of television comedy with Keri and a few other individuals like Ungie, Amante, and periodically strangers on Twitter it’s lately getting harder and harder to find people to engage in this silliness with.
At first, I thought it was because I was hanging out with the wrong people.
However, I’ve realized, it’s because I’ve been a bad friend. I’ve not considered how sad they must be to NOT have a relationship with 30 Rock. I should be working to bring the same hilarity I feel when I watch 30 Rock to their lives.
So, here we are.
Tonight, I’ll be hosting a small gathering of 30 Rock aficionados, casual fans, and the unsullied. We’ll be watching a few episodes from each season to give a flavor of the NBC hit.
Viewing will begin promptly at 8:00pm and will continue until we’re done watching around 10:30 or we run out of Sabor de Soledad. We will then trek to Korea Town for Karaoke until dawn.
If you are unable to attend, but still want to feel comically-whole, I will now share with you the list of episodes that we’ll be screening. Both Ungie and I have selected these episodes for comic freshness and character completeness. Also, there was beer when we made the list, so we might be waaaaaaay off.
