Episode 219

The entire significance behind my blog has suddenly been undermined. This blog was born out of spite for the many pretentious Stanford people who scoffed at the fact that I had time to watch television. But now I am realizing that even television itself has a idealized vision of Stanford.

Both DJ Tanner and Jessie Spano want nothing else their senior year except to attend [gasp] Stanford University. That's the problem with these west-coast set sitcoms, they act as though Stanford is all that exists. I know for a fact that none of the Dawson's Creekers (not even "I'm fourth" Joey) even thought about going to Stanford, and something tells me that the Gossip Girl kids haven't either: normal east coast people would much rather be an English major at NYU than a d-bag major* at Stanford.

Moral of the story, Stanford is so early 90s. Let's move on, people. 30 Rock has the right idea.

*Disclaimer: I refer only to the graduate degree of d-bag; I can't speak for the undergrads.


  1. As an addendum, I think it's important to note that in HSM3 Berkeley comes out victorious.
