108 is also my special number! I've never met anyone else who has shared this. Clearly, Lesley and I are soulmates who need to start a club ("The Pentagon Club" because there are 108 degrees in each interior angle in a regular pentagon?) and be BFFS.
Love this episode. Love Girls.

oof, this hurts my heart! Just to defend her (not that she needs it) but Lesley doesn't need to apologize because she has nothing to apologize for~ she's certainly not racist or hatefilled and has been the victim of a website that preys on controversy - they have twisted her words and made her out to be something and spoon fed that to the masses. We are all entitled to our own opinions but... Please don't buy into that bullshit!

I have a whole lot of strong feelings about this, and I'm not sorry for them. But I should have kept them to myself. I don't like too much negativity on these boards, and I don't want to contribute to it.
Forget I said anything, and let's all look at this Oprah gif that always makes me laugh.

I haven't heard a satisfying answer about the weird statements and affiliations. Carlos Mencia and Daniel Tosh and Lisa Lampanelli also haven't apologized for a lot of wack stuff they've said and done, either. If they showed up on Totally Laime, I'd hope to see some static, too.
Audiences get to draw conclusions from the behavior of performers. And I don't see why we shouldn't be allowed to express those conclusions, respectfully and non-hysterically. It's 2012. You want to build clout with "edgy" racism? People will pay attention. Some will give you money and jobs. And others will do that one thing they can do to register their disgust: say, publicly, "no thanks."
Sometimes when one takes a principled stand, feathers get ruffled. I think that's okay. I also appreciate the "agreeing to disagree." That's cool, too. But I was proud of your courage when I saw your first comment.

I enjoy Totally Laime, and think it's a great listen most weeks. Thanks for bringing it to us.

I didn't watch Lost, but now that I know that 108 plays into it, I'm totally going to!
I don't remember 108 in Lost, but I'm pretty sure 108 is an important number to Krishnas. There is a Krishna hardcore band called 108 that I used to listen to.
