Last night, I emailed Matt to see if he had anything planned for his last day. He explained that he had something he was going to do, but it fell through due to extenuating circumstances and other obligations. It made me sad to think that there might be nothing today that was special or noteworthy to celebrate the past few years of enjoyment he provided all of us on this blog. And, on a more personal level, I wanted to do something nice to thank him for giving me a chance to blabber about TV on here as his fill-in. If that doesn’t happen, then I don’t get invited to be part of the team that’s running the show going forward, and then my school loans likely go unpaid. Unless I got, like, a real job or something. [shudders]
So anyway, I woke up this morning and put together this video. It’s a collection of some of the best GIFs we’ve seen on the site, including all our old friends: Alison Brie, Don Draper, Khal Drogo, Ron Swanson, the lady who got dumptrucked in the face by a watermelon, etc. Also, there are lots of cute dogs and brutal violence. My original thought was to set this video to “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men (because that’s pretty much always my original thought), but then I realized that today shouldn’t be about mourning what we’re all losing when Matt leaves, it should be about celebrating what we had. Also, I kind of love this song. Whatever, like you’re so great.
Feel free to leave your well wishes and thanks in the comments. Let’s send the dude out with a bang.
