Lard-ass of the Century, Leo Laporte is now back to begging his “fans” for money. The editorial board at Total Drama is not quite sure what to do with this outrageous and cynical grab for cash. Instead of holding his fat hand out like a common Petaluma street bum, perhaps Leo could put down the soup spoon, dump his hag wife and get on the treadmill. That’s the best way for people to support Leo:
As Leo Laporte embarks on a mission to reanimate the dusty bones of his failing career with the relaunch of a show that was long ago left for dead on an aborted tech network, let us take a moment to recall some of the stirring words of Apple Computer’s groundbreaking “Think Different” campaign:
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
These are inspiring words—a glorious vision. So what connection do they have to Leo Laporte’s recent embrace of his past as he attempts to resurrect “The Screen Savers” and morph it into the lame ‘n’ lazy “The New Screen Savers”?
And that’s exactly the point… Leo isn’t taking any risks, he’s not looking energetically toward the future. In fact, he practically delights in firing his best broadcasters. He’s gleeful to throw wonderful assets away. Beloved former employees are left to twist on their Patreon pages as he gives a bear hug to the losers of yesteryear. We at TotalDrama aren’t buying it and can only lament its sad revival.
At this point, the best thing would be for NBC/Universal to load up those legal silver bullets and kill this deformed monster of a show with their team of attorneys. We will not mourn its passing.
“Tech News Today” has finally just given up. The next step apparently is to just shut off the cameras and board up the studio. So with the Nov. 12, 2014 episode we now just have guests talking directly into the lower third.
We remember fondly the days when TNT actually gave a fuck.
Ahead of Tuesday’s big announcements by Apple, Inc., reports have reached #TotalDrama’s ear that Mike Elgum has locked himself in the “Rape Room” to gather his thoughts.
There is nothing quite like a TWiT Special Event that brings out the inane and irrelevant mumbling from the so-called news director. We’re expecting quite a load of lame jokes, a garbage pail of half-cocked commentary and a shit-ton of bizarre ass-licky attempts to curry favor with Leo. All of it—of course—will fall flat. But that’s not stopping Gumbot from hunkering down in the bunker and cobbling together a slew of shitty rants to throw at an unsuspecting livestream audience.
Shrewd TWiT watchers will be prepared with earplugs or will just tune in to the CNET to get the real story on Apple’s expected blockbuster tech news.
