RIP VG. What a bummer. Thanks for all of the laughs and excellent writing over the years. And the rad friendships with Monsters. ~ a lurker

Team Stereogum.

Being someone who gets colds easily – if I could trust that dudes wash their hands after using the toilet – WHICH THEY DON’T – then it wouldn’t gross me out to have to shake hands with dudes. And yeah, if you’re going to offer a handshake, a limp dick handshanke is a turn off.

I’d do him… IN SPACE.

Autotune is so 2009. Where’s the dubstep remix?

Cougar Town rules! Penny can!

I know no one’s going to see this comment, because I always view these discussions late. However, the “joke” happened in the context of the USA, not in the UK, which makes all the difference. Hence, in the American context: ‘cunt’ is the most degrading, violent, and hateful word to say to a woman.

A few years ago, I was dating a dude who ended up being the most abusive and dishonest dude I ever dated. I remember that he’d call me a ‘cunt’ when intending to hurt me the most – and it most certainly did hurt like hell that someone who was supposed to love and respect me repeatedly did otherwise by the cheap use of this word during our arguments – which were usually about his lies. It was like calling me ‘cunt’ was not only the most sexist insult, but a convenient and manipulative distraction from his lie(s) I would be trying to approach him about – of which for he could never be wrong, nor ever apologize. Sorry for sharing this anecdote.

Gabe mentioned that someone who never apologizes is a sociopath. I respect that The Onion apologized, and did so in a timely manner.

This vid made me LOL so hard. I guess it was the combo of high heat, thin hair, and hair product. She took it well. I kept waiting for her to show us the curling iron with her now burnt off hair wrapped around it… and she was a good enough sport to remember to show it to the camera in the end.

Unfortunately, most Americans have not studied post-colonial theories, so cultural appropriation is not within their vocabularies. Also, re: Asian-themed frat parties and Native-American headdresses – whenever I see a white dude dressed as a desert Arab for Halloween, I just wanna suicide bomb his racist/ignorant white-privileged ass. I remember a professor in grad school used to point out regarding U.S. foreign policy: “The Romans never asked, ‘Why do they hate us?’”

Totally. Hollywood Blvd *is* where all of the stripper shoe shops are, after all. I don’t think lucite platform heals were meant for pounding concrete, although the shoe designer Jeffery Cambell probably disagrees as all of his platforms seem to be made with lucite heels nowadays.

Exactly.

You totally rule, dude.

Awesome. Sounds like my kind of birthday.

Whoah, dude. Tej is a good master yoga teacher and has taught at this studio since it’s inception however many decades ago. Trippy that she quit. I guess spiritual hippy fascists are not without their own drama! Bummer. And, uh, may the [yoga] force be with you!

Philip K. Dick really missed the mark about Mars colonization actually being instigated via frickin’ reality TV shows rather than the result of the destruction of planet Earth.

I had a poem published in a literary/art journal about nine years ago – and got paid for it! I re-read it recently and it’s completely fucking terrible! It’s awful. I’m so embarrassed. I can’t believe I ever thought I was a poet. Fuckin’ A.

You’re such a haole to the max.

I’m also hopeful about the Tarantino film.

Yeah, I remember my former students recommended Big Bang Theory to me… I couldn’t get past one episode.

Good point.

Lol. Agreed. :(

I agree that there is a huge difference between the intentional and unintentional commodification of sex and that Anne Hathaway was NOT a wiling participant in this case. But, the cynical part of me also wonders if she truly never considered the risk she was taking in light of the fact that pervert paparazzi would most likely be awaiting and photographing her from all angles – considering it’s happened a half dozen times with other female celebrities who chose to go sans underwear? However, I also hate that my question inadvertently also relates to the sexist notion in rape culture: “She deserved it because of what she was (or was not) wearing.” Ugh. I’m just going to go back to lurking…

This is only kosher if he and Angie give back each other’s blood vial necklaces beforehand. Angie should then give her blood necklace to Brad now, obviously.

TWSS! Seriously, I was thinking the same thing. Ew! I wish Michonne had caused more than just eyeball damage to that dude…

I’m down for Thirsty Crow again and an after-party at my place again (walking distance from Thirsty Crow) if ya’ll want to. However, you can’t be spilling beer on my rug again. ;)
