But let’s dodge the question of whether abortion is murder for a second....– This Baby should Be Allowed to Smoke Weed and have an Abortion: Sucky Thoughts on Sucky Laws I went to college with this guy and his blog is actually pretty funny - it’s almost like the male version of Apocalypstick, but minus the angsty ranting about boys and one’s lack of acting...
clientsfromhell: This is the discussion at the start of a client meeting: “Before we begin, what’s your sign?” “I’m sorry?” “You know—when were you born? I like to know who I work with.” “Oh, a Taurus…” “Great! I see that in you. We can work together.” Lets just say that was the only meeting we had. True story: I’ve had the same thing happen to me. And to this day I STILL see the...

Bringing a boy home too. Thank God he’s already met the parents. Now we just have to worry about the brothers…and the friends…and the pug. Wish me luck!

Sad Panda, Behind the Mask →
Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism student Michelle Tay has sent us this exclusive interview with the man behind the mask. The audio is in Mandarin, but there are subtitles that tell the 62-year-old Jialing Chen’s story — which includes a hard luck tale of being forced to leave his former restaurant job. Unable to find work again, he started out his journey as Sad Panda, where...
There is a fire happening a block away.
I passed it walking back from the train. Flames out the window, firefighters on the roof, even more trucks on their way…the whole package. I sincerely hope everybody in and around the building managed to get out safe and unharmed.
It’s bad enough I found out Southland was cancelled without warning (after it was slated to premier back in October) the other day, but now I wake up to Dollhouse being officially offed as well? NOT THAT I’M SURPRISED, but still… So now here’s my current TV-schedule (and yes, I know I watch too much of it): Sunday: Dexter Monday: How I Met Your Mother Tuesday: V ...

Yes, I am a weepy sucker for any semi-sappy story involving a dog. This is why I refuse to ever watch Marley and Me. UPDATE: Oh Jesus.

Over the weekend I went with a friend to Williamsburg to check out the band Goosepimp Orchestra - didn’t expect to dance, but there was more than enough to go around. Also shook the drummer’s hand and almost collapsed due to a pinched nerve and his ninja grip. Funky.

Anthony Bourdain on Food Network Personalities →
I know this is from 2007, but it’s too funny not to share. “PAULA DEEN: I’m reluctant to bash what seems to be a nice old lady. Even if her supporting cast is beginning to look like the Hills Have Eyes—and her food a True Buffet of Horrors. A recent Hawaii show was indistinguishable from an early John Waters film. And the food on a par with the last scene of Pink Flamingos. But...

I’m all for using local, sustainable produce, and working to decrease childhood obesity in the U.S., but here’s the real reason why I’m posting this: Sam Kass is a fox and a half.
