We’ll likely find out if this is the end for the show or not tomorrow, and I never thought I would say this, but I just don’t care anymore. I’ll watch a fifth season if it happens (and I oddly think it would be better than this season was because everybody will be in more command of what works and doesn’t work about the show), but this is no longer a show that’s capable of much beyond repeating elements it thinks the audience will like over and over again. It’s become a jukebox musical version of itself, endlessly spinning its greatest hits to a crowd that grows smaller and smaller until it finally disappears. Even yesterday, I would have been sad at a cancellation, thanks to all of the good times I’ve had with this show over the years and even in this season. But not anymore. It might be time to be done. The earth, it has been salted.

silenceofthegrahams asked: do you know of any good annie monologues of a decent length (1+ minute)? please and thank you!
Here’s some that come to mind - although, I don’t think they reach 1 min:
“No. I don’t want to express myself. I don’t want to sit in a room and say… the P-word. I like being repressed. I am totally comfortable being uncomfortable with my sexuality. And maybe if everyone were more like me, we wouldn’t have to have an STD fair!” - The Politics of Human Sexuality
“You listen up, Pierce! I’m gonna tell you what my mother told me when I wanted to quit cheerleading. ‘You’re not very pretty, you have no boobs, and you can’t do a basket toss to save your life.’ But you made a commitment. So pick up your pompoms, Pierce, stuff your bra, and get ready for the team bus to forget you at a Taco Bell, because life is tough. But we soldier on, and that’s just the way it goes.” - Advanced Criminal Law
“She ripped into his torso, like a gerbil shredding a quaker oats box, sending chunks of viscera and an aerosol mist of blood all over the skanky concubine. Then, she flossed her teeth with his tendons. And, because he was a vampire, he lived through all of it. He had to watch her swallow his last eyeball. She kept it attached to the optic nerve, so he could see down her throat, to his own partially digested flesh in. Her. Stomach.” - Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps
Anonymous asked: Can you please post a link to where I can buy a copy of Dan Harmon's book?
First editions of the book are already sold out. But they might be releasing 2nd edition books in a few months.

Awesome, that’s great! I’m on page 15 and I’m crying already.
lazulina said: Nice work on snagging a signed copy!
Heh, thanks :) Living in Australia kind of worked to my advantage. I didn’t have to stay up late or into the wee hours of the morning for the online store to appear on the harmontown website.
Yay, my book arrived today!
brittaperryscloset asked: Hey! Just wanted to say I really love this blog :)
Thank You! :) :) :)
I really haven’t had much time to update it lately. Damn you real life, stop butting into my fandom time!
Anonymous asked: wasn't it, 'unstoppable juggleknob' not 'jugglenaut'?
Yes, you’re right. I Britta’d it. Or TroyandBritta’d it.
I misheard it as jugglenaut, and assumed Troy thought it meant, like, unstoppable juggling Astronaut.
