Global Happenings: Videogum’s Lindsay Robertson Laid Off

This is beyond the worst.

videogum laid off

Article here.

For those of you not familiar with Videogum, it is by far the best website (blog format) on the internet for keeping up with internet trends and cultural happenings for a targeted audience of hipsters, comedy nerds, and humor seekers.

Since it’s creation, two authors have taken up all the work on posts, Gabe and Lindsay, and have provided their fairly large but niche audience with a website they could embrace and call their own.

Lindsay will be sorely missed.

Eagle Tears Are the Worst Kind of Tears

So that was depressing.

UPDATE:

Lindsay will now be returning to her old blog http://lindsayism.com/. So, fortunately, she is not gone forever.

Global Happenings: NBC Washington Knows How to Market Things That Vibrate

A story was released on the NBC Washington website today entitled “Maker of Famous Vibrating Bed Dead.” Alright, seems perfectly acceptable as a story coming from what is supposed to be one of the most respected news-journalism sources in the nation. However, the picture used as the thumbnail preview and subsequently as the article picture headliner…

is not so much. Honestly WTF? The maker of the Magic Fingers Vibrating Bed dies and NBC Washington markets it with two (presumably) lesbian and attractive females (once again presumably) about to use the vibrating system in a “magical” way of their own? Really?

To be clear, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the picture in itself, people should be allowed to follow whatever orientation they please (whether that be gay or be attractive and derobed). The point is, the use of this picture is beyond lazy. These two attractive woman (who as stated previously are not wearing clothes and attractive) have nothing to do with this recent death (at least I hope not) and NBC Washington knows clearly well what they were doing when they posted this.

As an aside, I really love how the caption tries to play the picture off as nothing and state something about how motels should feel gratitude towards the founder for his legacy as the caption. Acting as if the ridiculously chosen picture is of no ridiculousness at all.

Update:

The picture has been changed. We are all kicking ourselves now for not saving the picture and just linking to the url. The picture may be gone forever.
