Stray Observations

  • "Um, she's funny, and we text a little, but, um, she's a little ugly for me." (The Curse, S01E06)
  • "Nudity always makes theater serious and good." (Rick and Morty, S07E10)
  • </Rick and Morty, S07>
  • "Ray can mimic Ernest Hemingway writing Harry Potter because it's read everything those writers ever wrote or said. I mean, shit, everything everyone's ever wrote or said. From Winnie the Pooh to Hitler speeches, to fucked up tweets from celebrities, manifestos from school shooters. If Ray's coming up with this lesson for Zoomer, its curriculum comes from us. That's why so much AI is racist, sexist, homophobic, because Ray isn't an oracle – Ray is a mirror." (A Murder at the End of the World, S01E07)
  • "This is what Ray really is, what the internet really is – just a bunch of machines howling in the dark." (A Murder at the End of the World, S01E07)
  • "Bill always said that the serial killer didn't matter. The killer was boring, predictable. What matters is the terrifying culture that keeps producing them. The invisible sickness between the lines – a sickness now animated in algorithms that animate…all of us." (A Murder at the End of the World, S01E07)
  • </A Murder at the End of the World, S01>
  • "When a man digs a grave, he has to fill it. Otherwise, it's just a hole." (Fargo S05E06)
  • Pornographic images of miners (South Park: Not Suitable for Children, 20 Dec 23)
  • "Scrabble? Christ, I did her a favor by knocking her out." (Slow Horses, S03E05)
  • "What's the point of winning if you ain't doing it with your people?" (Rap Sh!t, S02E08)
  • </Rap Sh!t, S02>

The 2023 Draft

Previously on Adam Riff™:

There was an idea… To bring together a group of disparate people… To see if we could create something more…than a year-end list.

This year, we decided to shake things up, asking our league of 12 to each fill 10 categories with things from 2023 in randomly-generated snake draft order without any overlap, creating a retrospective unlike any other.

It's a proper draft with a "best of" sensibility.


Who won the draft?

Adam Riff™ Clip of the Week

51. Ready for his close-up (The Curse, S01E05)

Stray Observations

  • Dean Cain (The Curse, S01E05)
  • "Alright, I'm just gonna say it so nobody else has to say it. Popey ball. There."
    "If I didn't say anything, someone was gonna be like, 'You missed Popey ball, it was right there.' I thought about not using a Poké Ball because of that and…it's just the right tool for the right job. What, am I supposed to not use it and shoot the Pope in the head?"
    "I was gonna say it." (Rick and Morty, S07E09)
  • "So, you want freedom with no responsibility? Son, there's only one person on Earth who gets that deal."
    "Mm. The president."
    "A baby. You're fighting for your right to be a baby." (Fargo, S05E05)

Gandalf's voice is in my head every time I put out a new one

The Ghostbusters VR Academy is your chance to be a real Ghostbuster with two distinct virtual reality experiences. Enter the ARENA, suit up and get armed with proton packs as you outsmart mischievous spirits and join forces with fellow trainees to capture ghosts. In a separate attraction, BLITZ, hop into the driver's seat of the ECTO hovercraft, a vehicle exclusive to the Academy.


In this bumper car ride, one car is chosen as Patient Zero. Avoid getting bumped or you'll become a zombie. Navigate the chaos, stay uninfected, and escape the outbreak.


Surrounded by a Miami-inspired skyline with illuminated photo-ops, get ready to ride like the BAD BOYS in this collection of racing simulators that take you on a high-speed chase to victory.


Head back to school for cocktail chemistry or join an art class for a "paint and sip" night complete with drinks inspired by house party booze classics.


Damn, without Spider-Man, Sony's film IP is pitiful.
