Conan has said "he's a threat to every Irishman in the world". That's a bit extreme. Anyways on account of that, Conan really is acting as the white flag for AAAYYEEEE-RRIIISSSH people, presenting himself on my Youtube home page as the wholesome face of every AYYYEEE-REEEEESSH men. Ouuwww.... I used to respect you Conan, not in an elitist way that you are intelligent & a Harvard grad, but because you stood up to the liberal cause. You even have a staff that is very diverse. One that you're not shy to display. I even for a while wanted to believe the Jordan Schlansky character was real, but now it's become apparent that it's all a lie to really capture the millennial crowd. I don't think you're a despicable person, I just wish you'd just buzz off, but you won't. So here's what I'd do. For every single time a video of yours makes it way to my home page, to that video I will post this exact comment, copy-paste, verbatim. Let's play this game. ---- Why am I suddenly behaving badly? Not that I'm super nice online, even. People just created this memory of a super pleasant, stupid nice guy that they know so well, as if the memory is real. At the very least, even the dumbest (¹) will remember how horrible people were to me. For what? Nearly a decade? People just can't stand the memory of how they were so they just replaced it with the "memory" that I've always been this super nice, caring, sweet, forgiving guy that doesn't even care what you do to! I'll just forgive you no matter what! I'd just keep smiling! He's Filipino! Filipino are just like that! A point that these irish hijacked to no end. "Ouwwhhh, he's just this bhoy. Always just eager to please! He just wants everybody happy! It's always about kindness & helping each other out with his people". How do the irish know? Coz the irish are the Whites most like Filipinos, the irish say! I'd say it's the Spanish, but the irish will not have anything to do with them. So, eerrhhh? On conversations between the irish & Filipinos it will be unusual to ever bring up similarities, unless it mentions me. That really is only when the irish say that Filipinos are most like them. But it does solve a few issues.... Look! The Whites aren't being racists! His people are compared to another White group! Seems like the irish can just manage the mess that this person has created. At this realization, suddenly, Whites do see that the most common of them (conveniently not having to use Italians, which are a little bit too discriminated themselves) & his people are indeed similar!... Well, not see, as more as feel. It eases them. When I point out that, "no, I don't identify with you, in fact you people are doing the worst to my family...", but, the gossiping of the irish were quick to take, "Ouwwhh... He is a very screwed-up, self-hating person that always withdraws to himself & always say 'sooorry!' (²). He just feels so, so irish that he just can't help it! He identifies so much to us, that he hates us. We know these things about him... We're the ones that knows most about this bhoy... It is! It is indeed as so many people are saying now, he really just wants everybody to be happy & smiling! Ouuwhh yes,  he loves the irish face. He likes his face plump & round like maize walliams! Ouuuwwwh, he doesn't really mean it when he said this! Like we said, this is a very, very conflicted bhoy. He's acting out on you on something else that he feels about himself! Yes, yes.. Oh, no, no... It's not because of what you did or said to him"  Even the part that I said that the irish are doing the worst to us was being discarded. It's only being un-omitted now. Because of the insistence of the gossiping of them (no shortage there) that it's being drowned out & it's really hard to show that the worst cops & most psychics are irish. --- ¹ That aren't Vancouverites. ² I did say sorry a lot when I was working at Pet Habitat.

I'm amazed by the fact there's loads of comments somehow correlating this speech to deep intelligence or high education. Are you people not passionate about anything. Literally anyone who is deeply passionate about a subject, particularly entertainment like films or videogames and has a half decent understanding of the English language could talk at this length and depth about it, naturally we don't do this in every day life for obvious reasons but, really, there's nothing spectacular about going off on a tangent in a conversation, scripted or not.
Holy crap! Thats some yappin.

To all people that says “All Schlansky bits are just scripted, he’s acting”, I mean of course they are to some extent, but that fact that this man can effortlessly ramble about Star Wars, while bringing up crazy similarities from Van Gogh and many more under 6 minutes, and not once going “Hey Conan, you’re supposed to interrupt me, I don’t know what more to say” and just keep carrying on while the audience laughs at his nerdyness, is such a solid proof that Jordan’s fascination with these things and his alien personality is deep within him.

You could not come up with a worse example of parallel mythologies than Greece and Rome. That is appropriation of the Greek gods, etc. by the Romans,, not independent development of two different systems whatsoever. Also, that "hero's journey" thing is so vapid and misses the multitude of parallels in Star Wars to real life mythologies and extant religions. Just look Darth Maul, then ten-horned scarlet beast with ten crowns (one on each horn) for example.

Schlansky needs to launch a phone service where he calls my date (who is decidedly a psycho) and spends 10 minutes reciting a monologue that distracts them long enough for me to get up and leave. I'll pay.

Awesome thoughts from Jordan. However, it almost sounds like his initial ideas about how Star Wars and Star Trek differ, makes them sound fairly similar. Anyone?

AGATHA (14 days ago)
Jordan's argument is fair one, but I have one of my own too: While I adore both works, I think the hallmark of great literature or media in general is that it has to be familiar yet challenging. Star Wars works because it falls back on the familiar structure of the hero's journey, but it falls short somehow because it fails to innovate or challenge the structure-- that's why the prequels and the sequels have faced the same form of criticism for being a rehashing of the original trilogy. It's merely talking about the same thing, about a young kid who becomes the great hero. What Jordan posits as Star Wars greatest asset is in fact its greatest weakness. Star Trek, on the other hand, takes the usual procedural format (think CSI and Law & Order) and challenges it by introducing or discussing political and philosophical concepts without feeling the need to directly address present social issues. In that sense, Star Trek challenges the usual format of procedural drama by bringing in a new dimension. Having said that, Star Wars works well as a movie precisely because it sticks to the hero journey's format. It makes for a great metanarrative that everyone can somehow relate or aspire to. But Star Trek is a postmodernist reaction to the hero's journey-- it centres on a different, localised narrative every episode, and thus the TV format works perfectly for Star Trek.

This guy needs to read some Aesthetics books so he can properly explain his point of view without needless tangential analogies. His philosophical framework for defining art is only one of many, and can be explained in like 2 sentences
Lennier Fernandez (18 days ago)
Maybe. I'd bet he's just pretentious
Ar-J Ariado (19 days ago)
+Lennier Fernandez yeah ofc dude this can be Jordan but I believe that he also has the capacity to simplify his ideas it's just that for the purpose of the skit, Jordan made sure that he went "full throtle" with his "speech" thus leading Conan to compliment Jordan on how long he did it and that Conan was supposed to stop him but for some reason wasn't on the script that was given to Conan (the monitor showing the script)
Lennier Fernandez (19 days ago)
+Ar-J Ariado I genuinely believe this is Jordan Shlansky, the true Jordam Shlansky, the one and factual only
Ar-J Ariado (19 days ago)
I'm pretty sure he can but I think he's just doing this for the humour and the skit
