Reason Writers' Heads Around Town

|

Over at Bloggingheads.tv, reason Senior Editor Kerry Howley diavlogs with occasional reasonoid Will Wilkinson about the Dalai Lama, jingoism, Charles Murray, Barack Obama, and a whole lot else.

NEXT: Raining McCain

  1. I won’t be watching this.

  2. So one of them is in the living room and the other one is in the office?

    Actually Will looks like he might be on the the toilet, is that a towel in the background?

  3. Kerry Howley diavlogs

    That sounds dirty.

  4. So they’ve found a way to monetize their after dinner conversation? Awesome!

  5. Kerry is prettier than I imagined.

  6. So is Will.

  7. Kerry: OMG!
    Will: LOL!
    Kerry: BRB!
    Will: ‘k

  8. “Diavlogs” is a word I hope to never read again. Just sayin’…

  9. Actually Will looks like he might be on the the toilet, is that a towel in the background?

    Heh. Maybe he is using one of these.

  10. The only way I would click on the link would be if Kerry Howley shows her breasts.

  11. Ya’ll really need to get girlfriends or something.

  12. These comments are too funny. Reason is fucking garbage. First they post “stories” from a guy who was paid by Israeli propagandist organization to go on a “fact finding” mission. Now they’re showing videos between a couple. Honestly, what the fuck happened? Who can I complain to? There must be someone that funds this rag since there’s no way you guys are making money from the crap you’re putting out these days.

  13. Fucking garbage is a bad idea. Take it from me, the smell stays in your pubes forever.

  14. First of all, shit, I thought kerry was single.

    Secondly, why the fuck didn’t you guys just sit next to each other on the couch?? Was there really a need to go to two different rooms so you can do the whole split screen thingy??

  15. I demand that from now on Reason refuse to post videos if couples are involved. No more fucking garbage either.

  16. There must be someone that funds this rag since there’s no way you guys are making money from the crap you’re putting out these days.

    Government subsidies.

  17. The Kochtopus is funding Reason.

    You know the same guys that BBC journalist Greg Palast discusses in his book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, that were involved in the deal that saved Bill Clinton’s presidency.

    “Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott and Minority Leader Tom Daschle worked it out like this: the Republicans promised to impeach Bill only for Lewinsky, not for his connections to the Riady family, as long as the Democrats would promise not to prosecute the Koch brothers.”

  18. So they’ve found a way to monetize their after dinner conversation?

    That’s a racket I can approve of.

  19. Diavlog?

    These neologisms have gone far enough.

    To the Blogocution Pod with the lot of them!

  20. So they’ve found a way to monetize their after dinner conversation?

    Wait ’till they find a way to make some money off their pillow talk.

    I can think of a few other activities they could “diavlog” if they wanna make some serious scratch.

  21. Ughhh. I tried, but I could not get passed the minute and a half mark.

  22. I’ve kinda liked the bloggingheads.tv. It’s what ‘talking heads’ television does, but a heck of lot more highbrow because of less talking point shouting – and does it with even less moderation.

    The first one a saw though, was went Althouse had a conniption over a throwaway comment from the other person, I can’t remember her name. So, because of this, for I long time I kept on reading the name of these things as ‘diva – logs’

  23. I demand that from now on Reason refuse to post videos if couples are involved.

    Well, there goes the Dave Weigel-Jamie Kirchick video they were planning.

    I won’t be watching this.

    dear god, then I dont know why they even *bothered*!

    Seriously though, thats got to be in the top 3 of ‘dumbest types of posts’ people can make. Somewhere just behind threatening to ‘kick someone’s ass’ on a blog.

    Whats up with all the haters? I really dont get it why people who ‘arent down with the program’ bother to go to sites/blogs/publications they revile and state their total and utter lack of fandom.

    I mean, it’s not like I lurk around The Nation, or Southern Partisan or something, and remind them how much *they* suck every week. I mean, I KNOW they suck. Isnt that enough for me?

    Is the idea that people might hear your contempt and suddenly doubt their own approval of this particular rag?

    Has the idea that people really dont give a shit ever occurred to them? Are they just that fucking dumb?

    It makes me sad really. Its a cry for help of some kind.

    That said = I must now poison Will Wilkinson and steal fair Kerry away from him. Anyone know any russians with that radioactive shit, or maybe like some Amazonian blowdart type thing? i’m in the market. Holler at me.

  25. Haha! I am sorry Gilmore, I enjoyed SIV’s comment very much especially as it was the first one!

  26. Man, all Will is missing is a tennis racket over his shoulder and a Fresca. I would get my ass kicked daily if I looked like that.

  27. Reasonoid chick diavloging with a Catomite dude. That just sounds dirty. That’s “dirty” as in “incestuous Kochtopus” dirty.

  28. Hey Gilmore — not only are you humorless, but you suck.

  29. I like watching/listening to Bloggingheads.tv, especially when one (or both) of the participants are libertarians. I also like watching/listening to the Reason roundtable discussions.

    I think Will can come off as elitist, but I find the discussions he leads really interesting and thought provoking. And I actually like the “diavlogs” between Will and Kerry.

    So there.

  30. Wilkinson often annoys me, but I didn’t find the diavlog to be that bad. It was better than any Althous is involved in. Better than David Brin and Khaled Dawoud too.

  31. I found the Obama cheer-leading noxious.

  32. I am with you JayDubya! Quite sickening. It says a lot about what Cato and Reason has become.

  33. ’bout 5.5 hours later and you can bet your ass I haven’t watched any of this feminist cosmotarian
    crap. Jesus Fucking Christ, I’d rather read Jesse Walker “review” somebody elses record review before I’d watch one fucking second of this.

  34. “I am with you JayDubya! Quite sickening. It says a lot about what Cato and Reason has become.”

    Don’t get me totally wrong, I can see how someone might do a lesser of evils calculus between McCain and Obama and come out on Obama… I think I’d lean the other way if I were coerced to pick.

    However, the impression I got seemed to be that they were considering it a binary choice… and I presumed that Cato and Reason representatives might maybe want to consider voting for… oh I don’t know, the Libertarian Candidate?

  35. Oh, and for another thing – if we are to be beyond superficial things like integumentary melanin concentration or the presence or absence of a Y chromosome, then perhaps we shouldn’t consider the race or gender of a candidate as a check in the positives column.

  36. This thread smells like troll.

  37. JayDubya, Cato and Reason representatives cannot vote for the candidate that represents their views most(the LP candidate), they have to vote for the winner that is why they reside in DC.

    And, didn’t you hear Will and Kerry? It would be sooooooo cool to have a woman or a black man atop the political power structure to send a message to others! Swoooooon!

  38. Man, all Will is missing is a tennis racket over his shoulder and a Fresca.

    I think Will is more of a Tab drinker 🙂

  39. If Will Wilkinson is having a hard time booking people for his webcast, I could disagree with him on just about anything. And I could do it better than most. See, I’m a prick, but a gracious one. Of course, I don’t have a magazine title, but I think “asshole corporate lawyer” would suffice. The problem is that then you’d have two dudes arguing about minute policy ramifications, who wants to watch that? I would tear that chump a new one, regardless of whether I agreed with him or not. And this isn’t a Kerry Howley puff piece, I’m a KMW man myself (sorry, she posts the best pictures….).

    Query: how many people think it would be cool if the Wilkinsons of the world debated with average joes (and by that I mean above-average)? Who wouldn’t want to see joe scrap it out with Wilkinson?

    Or hey, how about Reason editors scrap it out with regular commentors? How about some Highnumber vs. Ronald Bailey? Thoreau vs. Gillespie? Pro Libs vs. Sollum? dhex vs. Moynihan? Dave W. against anybody. or my favorite: Warran vs. the lobster lady.

  40. Why is Kerry wearing an Anton Chigurrh haircut?

  41. Jack, I think that is her best Ayn Rand impersonation.

  42. Lamar – I’m in (provided anybody thinks I have anything interesting to say).

  43. RE: Having your way with garbage

    Drink!

  44. The Kochtopus is funding Reason.

    Don’t they wish.

  45. The Lobster Lady?

  46. lol at the comments here, you guys need to get out more

  47. Seriously i hadn’t watched the video until now, they really were in the same house hahahahah oh god i need more beer

  48. Somebody needs a hug. No, a lot of people here need a shag. Seriously, maybe some of you wouldn’t be such fanged pricks if you were getting more sex.

  49. Fucking hilarious thread. Thanx all. SIV set the tone and then it just went from there. Gilmore tried to gallantly intervene (as many reasonites do when Kerry is involved), but was smacked down with crude hilarity. I like the fact that pretty much nothing was said about the contents of the video. Priceless! This is one time I can honestly write “LOL”.

    Hey Gilmore — not only are you humorless…

    You aint from around here are you?

    I may suck, however.

  51. Fucking garbage is a bad idea.

    Well, I’ve never fucked garbage. But I have, on occasion, fucked white trash. Sometimes, it’s not so bad.

  52. The still of Howley reminds me of that one chick

  53. Kerry’s a girl?

    How you doin?
