Don't you just look at that 2008 WCon and then think of the present day and smile to yourself? Look how far our emotionally challenged babies have come.

Hold on just one minute judgy anon; 'tis our beloved subjects that be slackin'. We should all write them to complain! Carry on overworked, underpaid overseer of the AWKWARD. Good luck and enjoy your new life when the load lessens a bit. Shit can wait, students can't. I am certain that the minute you are on your first break, the trolls'll be runnin' amuck. That is, afterall, how it goes. Cheers to the coming fall!

YES it is THEIR FAULT. INTERACT, DAMMIT.

And actually, hahaha, my first two weeks in my new place, I didn’t have internet. And that was when all the birthday-tweet shit went down. I had to literally go sit outside the office of my apartment complex for hours in 90-100+ degree weather to cover the action. I was cursing them for choosing the wrong time to suddenly talk to each other.

You've been slacking lately. Very disappointing. There were parallels from actors in Streetcar that could have been analyzed. Quotes from subject B from articles that related (maybe in a roundabout way to Subject A). But relevant nonetheless. Slacker!

I also drove across the country, moved house, started a new job, and plan, grade, and teach four classes a day, but I agree!! This needs to be remedied pronto.

You have a knack for finding the most hateful, disgusting and controversial quotes by both DD and GA. I still can't decide if you do it on purpose or not but I guess you do.

A

Hahahahaha. Wait… I can’t tell if this is an angry anon or just a baffled one. Yes, I specifically look for uncomfortable quotes and highlight the way DD and GA are portrayed through the press in relation to the show and to their relationship. That’s… pretty much the whole reason for the blog.

I do not, however, make ANY of this up!

She has been a celebrity – in fact, she still is – but her evident distaste for that world has only had the effect of making her look more serious about acting. The X-Files is to Anderson as an unasked-for hit single is to a painfully cool rock band – think Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. That is, something that makes your name, but which you can then rail against strategically: something you dignify yourself by refusing to exploit.

Didn’t anyone else here see them in person at the 1995 Museum of Television & Radio Festival?  I did.  Anyone who can get to the Museum in either LA or New York can too, by watching their tape of the XF panel.  DD & GA, onstage together for at least an hour.  They even <gasp> SAT NEXT TO EACH OTHER.  Willingly!  
Although, now that I look back on it, I *suppose* they could have been harbouring intense hatred for one another. After all, when the panel ended and the panelists gathered in that side room to schmooze with their guests, instead of DD & GA hanging out with each other, DD hung out with Perrey Reeves and GA hung out with — of all people — Clyde Klotz. 
(Hanging around her own HUSBAND, fergodssakes.  And in PUBLIC, too. Can you IMAGINE?  The NERVE of those showbiz folks!)  
Oh, and also, I noticed something when watching the tape that I couldn’t hear at the panel itself.  Unlike the auditorium speakers, the videotape caught everything that was picked up by the clip-on mikes, no matter how quietly spoken.  At one point on the tape, unheard by the live audience, you can *clearly* hear David — get this — ASKING Gillian IF SHE WANTS SOME WATER!!!  (Oh, the unmitigated GALL of the man!!) And then … then … oh god … HE POURS HER SOME WATER TO DRINK!!!!!  Into a CUP!!!!  And HANDS IT TO HER!!!!!!  OOOOHHHHH, the HATRED!!!!!! You can just FEEEEL it!!!!!!!
God, what more proof do we need?  THEY HATE EACH OTHER!!!!
And one more thing: on the videotape (but not in person), as the panel ends and the guests are getting ready to leave the stage, you can actually hear poor, sweet, naive DD asking CC if they should sign autographs now. (Remember, this was in early 1995.  DD didn’t know any better yet. ;-) ) The older and wiser CC tells DD no — because, if they did, they’d never get out of there.  So they leave the stage. 

This is a double-fisted blast from the past. A fan in 1998, entrenched in epic “do DD & GA hate each other?” warfare which still rages today, reporting on videotape of an event in 1995. (The Museum of TV & Radio became the Paley Center for Media).
And you thought I was sarcastic.
I will also note that I believe this footage is available for viewing for anyone who would visit the archives. Locals, think on the contribution you could make to science. Think of posterity.

Just pointing out, ahem, that I still don’t have anybody’s sneaky smartphone footage of this. Or even a verbal account. So. People. In NYC or LA. Think. Of me. fuckyeahdavidgillian:

Definition of getting your priorities right

it makes it even better that this is the guy David can’t even remember

#(apparently)  #(according to one of the two main interpretations of that conversation)  #(science disclaimer)  #also it’s not really Gillian who brought this about  #clearly it’s David jumping up on her before she has a chance to get her bearings  #and his clingy shoulder patting  #me me pay attention to me  #he didn’t want to miss his chance lol  #honestly i sense somehow this emerged from his insecurity and needing to immediately show her how happy he was for her  #naturally he needs to congratulate her more than this dude whatshisname  #her latest boy  #won’t remember his existence in another fifteen years  #but these two will still be hangin out fake married and holding hands and shit (via mushfromnewsies)

Here is the transcript of the actual interview. Here are gifs of it. Video is somewhere out there. Here is my interpretation of “more than attraction,” and here is some jawing about the event in general.

Q

Anonymous asked:

If (not suggesting, just theorizing for science--aka voicing a thought that has plagued me for years) DD and GA had enjoyed the occasional friends w/ benefits their "frisson" made unavoidable, AND if DD was trying to be "good" after his marriage to Tea, AND b/c DD and GA were around each other so much for his entire first year of marriage, is it not possible that unresolved sexual tension and jealousy on behalf of both subjects was a contributing factor to our favorite awkward tag 1998?

A

So, there is something undeniably seductive about this theory because it would seem to explain the sharp dive in attitude that seemed to happen around the same time David got married — but the more grounded part of me thinks that, even if “frisson”-relief ever happened between them, it did NOT happen later than 1995 (and given that Gillian was married from 1994-1997, I’m not sure when it WOULD have happened during that early period). I just think that the weight and drag of the series and of their obligations had already hit by then, and they would have looked on sexual shenanigans as a terrifying (and given their frequent irritation, perhaps a not particularly appealing) risk.

So what I think the better explanation is, is that David’s own patience and motivation plummeted when he got married (not that his attitude was rainbows and roses to begin with), and his relentless unhappiness and negativity was a still higher hurdle for them to clear in their own relationship. And really, you don’t have to be incredibly emotionally invested in someone you are working with for their negativity or even their survival mechanisms to make you feel hurt, resentful, and generally equate “he hates being here” with “he hates being around me.” And that might easily become mutual — not that they hate each other, as they frequently repeated, but certainly that they hate being around each other. Given that this resentment, unrest, discomfort, etc. is layered on top of what is, or was, clearly a strong (if unarticulated) bond of trust and camaraderie — and you can add confusion, frustrated nostalgia, uncertainty, and on and on and on.

So that’s my explanation for 1997-1998.

EM: The X-Files is famous for having no closure, no confirmation, and no consummation. Could you deal with that in your real life?
GA: Um. That is my life! [laughing] Yeah, I’d have to say that’s my life. That is! I mean, I’m not, I’m not joking.
EM: Do you want to get into that a little bit more? Is it the no consummation?
GA: No, if I think about my life as it has been for the last few months, I would say that it falls into all of those categories! Every aspect of it.
EM: So seeing it up on screen is no big surprise.
GA: No big surprise.

So maybe I'm somewhat of a sadist but I almost hope that Gillian did not acknowledge David's Bday tweet in private. Maybe I live for the awkward too much but I almost wanted her to think "well you wouldn't play along with me before, so fuck you dude, no amount of showing off your dorky big feet in a photo shoot where we were both miserable and hating each other, is going to get a reaction from me!"
