I love it and Vicki says “Kanye is beautiful.” This is Dan’s find but he is not the fastest poster, I AM.
Look B, I’m helping with your feature. Today we have Blog of Unnecesssssssary Quotation Marks
Happy Sex and the City standing in line day!
Maybe I’ll start a blog of the day feature. I’m pretty lazy and haven’t posted nearly as much as the other brunchachas. We’ll see how it works out. Anyways- today’s blog of the day comes from the ASIFA Hollywood Animation Archive. Sweet drawings of all kinds of stuff. I was about to put up a pic of rad anthropomorphic industrial machinery from the 1930s but they don’t want people stealing their images. So check it out here instead.
Yet another reason why I should visit London. Blu, Faile, Os Gemeos…baaaaah! More pics here.
Judge me, I dare you.
Victoria: HE IS TERRIBLY CROSS-EYED!
We call her Helen Bootygaygay.. eh? Ok, it’s really Helen Buttigieg. Loves the hair-do.
Danny, this would work really well with your high ceilings
Cue all my dreams coming true..
““They do want to do an “Ugly Betty” musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work”
Note to self: stop listening to what Fortune Magazine has to say
it’s a usb 2GB flash drive that’s a bracelet! ADORABLE!!
The bull shark is found in all tropical and subtropical oceans and seas along the coastlines and also in a few fresh water rivers and lakes. This shark is the most frequent attacker of people, as it swims in very shallow waters where people swim and is an aggressive shark.
DID YOU KNOW THAT? Vic is droppin some knowledge on sharks. What if a shark got into the Genesee River?
Japanese train companies solve budget problems by putting cats in costumes.
It’s like that wheelbarrel challenge in unbeatbale banzuki where, for some reason, the wheel barrel is in the form of cat. I can’t find a picture of that, but its amazing.
Oh Japan and your cats!
New Yorker talks all about hangovers.. but I really like what this Jezebel writer says she uses to combat them: “An egg-and-cheese and an ibuprofen and a coconut juice for electrolytes and an Adderall and a cup of coffee and another cup of coffee and my own high tolerance and all I have for you is that angry slight mass in the gut that reminds you you were bad last night”
I think I’ve found the real cure here, though:
One hangover secret I know is to have a spoonful of honey before you go to bed, while you’re still drunk (something about how your body processes sugar..).. SO, this honey bourbon seems like it’ll kill two birds with one stone, eh? Thanks, Dustin for that find.
Last night Intern Dan dropped some knowledge on ducks. 1) They have giant weeners. 2) These giant weeners coil up. As the illustration above shows, Dan was right.. but the Duck still can’t beat an elephant.
LIke this bird learned, it will probably help to sing songs to helpful volunteers who are taking you home to keep them entertained.
(PS – birds are still dealbreakers)
hooray pie today
for fancy sleep overs!!!
bum pa bum pa bum pa bum pa
it’s like future desk
Becky posted this on Meetza’s Myspace wall ages ago, but Meetza hasn’t really checked her page lately..
… by the Japanese government.
Yes, this dumb cartoon (sorry, Mosa), is Japan’s tourism ambassador.
My weekend was a bust and Becko’s apt is flooding today. So, step off, k?
Amy Winehouse + Pete Dougherty + baby mice = really fucking scary. Blake Incarcerated isn’t going to be happy with this, I don’t think.
New to my vocabulary: the phrase “jump off.” Apparently the cool kids have been using this term to mean something like, “that’s where the fun starts” ? However, I need to point out that urban dictionary says “jump off” means some other stuff.. see, it’s not just me that thinks it’s something dirty.
Mosa and I couldn’t remember the name of this porny store in England, but I found it, in case you were wondering, so that makes me the winner.
Listed as an up-and-coming top brand in England. You know why? Cause it’s a sex shop chain and it’s everywhere. Of course it’s popular.
Becky, represent for me.. I have no bike and questionable navagation skills.
I am super pumped about Target’s new Go International line by Rogan that is coming out tomorrow. I think I am going to trek my ass out to the Target in the middle of Brooklyn, the one no one goes to on Saturday to pick me up some animal print miniskirts and rompers. Don’t judge me.
These wheatpasted ads are apparently going up all over Canada. I think they’re rad.
Think of it as a festival of Breaking Away shorts with bike tricks in between. I went last year and it was a blast. The movies are fun and it was the first time I saw Dan Deacon- and it was free! So, who’s down?
Also- instead of Dan Deacon they have this Bikes Rock show (also free) that sounds totally rad. See below.

SOFT CIRCLE and DANIEL LEEB
The performance is a collaboration between artist and musician, Hisham Bharoocha (Soft Circle, formerly of Lightning Bolt and Black Dice), and filmmaker, Daniel Leeb (Cinecycle). Their piece consists of sounds created from bicycle parts, electronics and live video mixing.
SIMONE PACE (BLONDE REDHEAD)
Original Live Score
Directed by Jorgen Leth (A SUNDAY IN HELL, FIVE OBSTRUCTIONS)
Ole Ritter tries to break the unbreakable record by Eddy Merckx. The Hour Track Record is one of the most prestigious records in cycling. This classic film, directed by one of Europe’s most prolific filmmakers, is a treat for the track bike fan and the film lover alike. Simone Pace’s adept live score enhances the visual mastery of Leth.
Stick Around for the Dance Party afterwards
So, last night I did my first project with NY Cares, which is an organization that makes it super easy to find and sign up for all types of volunteer opportunities in the city. Mags and I went to help put on this dinner/game night for low-income families with little kids.. and “Don’t Break the Ice” was a huge hit. I totally lucked out and had a really fun time with this adorable 5-year-old.. (she told me Hannah Montana was waiting for her at home…) Turns out we fed 113 kids dinner last night. So, be inspired, suckers.. and go sign up for an orientation.
