she liked Imaginary Men best of all

I do not understand these van der Feelings!


So I loved to hate Dawson’s Creek. Mostly I loved Pacey and I HATED Dawson. Sometimes I’d watch that show and it would make me violent. He was just such an ass – patronizing, entitled, competitive, controlling, manipulative. It was impossible to understand how he could be the “hero” of the show when he was clearly such a douchenozzle.

Yet I watched because god knows I love me some Pacey and Cheesy Teen Dramas. What I loved even more was when Pacey got the girl. In fact, it’s going on 8 years since that show went off the air and my PaceyGirl Trish and I STILL love to remind each other of this:

So my default position is to hate on James van der Beek (especially when last year I read via his divorce settlement that he still earns over 70K a month! HOW is that possible!?! Does he work???) So imagine my confusion when he released this internet video/meme that is so funny, so awesome that it makes me feel like I could actually forgive EVERY ASSY DAWSON MOMENT EVER!!

James van der Memes

I mean, how can I not love it for THIS alone??:

Or this?:

The more I realized what the internet was really demanding – more intense emotional close-ups of my face

I mean WTF Beek?? Years of hating on you and then you gotta do this?? I’m so confused!

And because I’m eternally loyal to my Ultimate TVBoyfriendE! is having a poll about the Beek’s viral video vs. Josh Jackson’s Pacey-Con. I’ll give you a hint who is winning THAT one as well 😉

  2. Hehe! Douchenozzle is such a great insult; I am so going to appropriate that to use in my normal life.

    “Grant, stop being such a douchenozzle!”

    VanDerMemes is just what I needed after a few days of being in blogging siberia – my brain felt like it was going to break from the headaches I had while sick, and I couldn’t even read a screen without flinching.

    So imagine my absolute, intense delight when this post popped up! Of, Beekster, you knew I was sick, didn’t you? Otherwise only the impending apocalypse could explain you bringing the funny so. damn. hard!

    The “Stud Wink” made me laugh until I cried, but the 10th anniversary edition of the crying face is so monumental in its awesomeness it couldn’t hope to be topped!

    Mmm, I think a Pacey/Joey Mixtape needs to be devised soon 🙂

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA — that “I Win” video! That is HILARIOUS! It almost makes me want to travel back in time to the days of the Dawson’s Creek finale, just to live it all over again. (Well . . . not all of it . . . Jen’s interminable Death Scene was SUPER DEPRESSING, and TOTALLY UNNECESSARY, in my opinion.)

    Seriously . . . were there REALLY still Dawson and Joey fans in existence, by the show’s last season? I was pretty sure most of those odd creatures went extinct after Season 2. (My personal Dawson tolerance incinerated around the time of that ridiculous “My girlfriend’s diary says BAD things about me” fight he had with Joey, back when they first tried dating. That was just plain painful to watch.) 😉

    But the VanDerMemes are PURE WIN. You know me. I’m always a sucker for a good animated GIF or Ugly Cry Face . . . 😉
