Joss Whedon’s 2013 Wesleyan Commencement is Wonderful.

"You are all going to die", Joss Whedon says toward the beginning of his Commencement Address to the 181st Wesleyan University Graduates, where he also received an Honorary Doctorate this past Sunday. He continued, "You have all, in fact, already begun to die." I mean, how else would a Joss Whedon Commencement Address start? Luckily his speech got much deeper and more twisty and awesome, of course...eventually leading to the kick-ass: "To accept duality is to earn identity" and "the best thing is losing a debate. Because it means you’ve learned something and you’ve changed your position." Come on, now.

Definitely check out the video below of Joss in his cap and gown regalia and read the full transcript after the jump. [courtesy]

“Two roads diverged in a wood and…” No! I’m not that lazy.

I sat through many graduations. When I was sitting where you guys [Wesleyan class of 2013] are sitting the speaker was Bill Cosby. He was very funny and he was very brief and I thank him for that. He gave us a message that I really took with me, and that a lot of us never forgot, about changing the world. He said, “You’re not gonna change the world, so don’t try.”

That was it! He didn’t buy that back at all. And then he complained about buying his daughter a car and then we left. And I remember thinking…you know I think I can do better. I think I can be a little more inspiring than that.

So, what I’d like to say to all of you is that you are all going to die.

Obscurus Lupa Presents: Beer Bad

You know, there is nothing I love more than when things I like collide. I've been waiting a long time for an excuse to promote anything at That Guy With The Glasses and, today, at long last, my excuse has finally come. Enter Allison Pregler aka Obscurus Lupa, one of the newest editions to the TGWTG team and her latest segment, Manic Episodes, where, you guessed it, she makes fun of the stranger episodes of the most popular genre shows. And what could make for better fodder than "Beer Bad", an episode that everyone thinks is absolutely ridiculous? Well, everyone, except for those Buffy/Parker and Oz/Veruca 'shippers out there (I know you weirdos must exist somewhere. This is the internet!)

Without any further prattling from me, here is Allison in her element, talking about all things foamy.

This was pretty hilarious and I'm really looking forward to seeing what episodes of Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse(Oh, God, please make fun of Dollhouse) Allison might take on next. What episodes would you like to see her take to task?

Also, I really want Linkara to take on Buffy Season 8. Get to it, Lewis!
