Just found out through my Jason Schwartzman-like detective skills that the source of 30 Rock’s use of the name Stone Mountain can actually be directly attributed to Derrick Comedy/Community’s Donald Glover, who used to write for the show (which I knew) and who also happens to be a Stone Mountain native (which I did not know, and is awesome).
Turns out he just namedropped it in the writers room one day and everyone thought it sounded funny and hickish enough to serve as Kenneth’s hometown (why they weren’t similarly amused by the name of Jack McBrayer’s actual hometown of Snellville, I’ll never understand).
If they’d bothered to look at a map, however, they might have noticed that 1.) Way better names abound (aside from Snellville there’s also Valdosta, Tallapoosa, Lilburn, LaGrange, Jasper), and 2.) Stone Mountain is part of Metro Atlanta, is only about 20% white and has one of the highest crime rates in the city (which in turn has one of the highest crime rates in the country).
I’m not sure how I got to the point where I’m bragging about the number of murders in my hometown, but there you go.
We’re like Kazakhstan after Borat came out.
And he’s all out of bubblegum.
“The President of the United States of America.”
Arguably the funniest line of Parks & Rec this season, and that’s saying a lot. Also it’s officially funnier than The Office this season.
Normally I’d agree, but I think it actually shaped up to be pretty neck-and-neck tonight. The Office came to play.
(Though it’s a pretty lazy move to pass off a Halloween-themed cold open as a Halloween-themed episode. Two years in a row.)
More like Bride of Chunky, lol
Sylar, who’s alive inside the mind of Matt Parkman, recently learned he’s powerful enough to take over his whole body, and used that to fuck the bejeezus out of Parkman’s wife.
Sylar: What are you gonna do? Defend your lady’s honor? You and I both know it’s not about that. It’s about all those other things I can do to her, and Matty, the next time I take over your body. That’s where the real fun begins.
