Whenever The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart had to report on a tragedy like Friday’s terrorist attacks on Paris, he would temporarily drop the jokes and speak candidly. Serious Jon was a little jarring to watch, at least the first couple of times, and that successfully conveyed the gravity of situation.

Last night, HBO aired the one-hour standup special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo. It was good, if you’re into that sort of thing (i.e. Schumer being Schumer). My favorite bit centered on cum. It started, “I’m just reminding you that we’re all disgusting. No one in here is better than anyone else. Like, you’ve all caught a hot load, you know?”

Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut? Great movie. Cool costumes, scary as hell, intense performance from Nicole Kidman. One of my favorites by Kubrick, though you may be hard-pressed to find many people who agree with me on that. Anyway, Ani Bezzerides is the true detective.

As for women: “If we find a woman with a woman, we pull out one and do it to her. We have sex with her. We cannot allow a woman to have sex with a fellow woman.”
