She’s just bein’ Miley

New Miley Cyrus!  Alert the masses!  And no, I’m not being ironic.  I love her.

I have a pop music addition.   Nora said to me last night when I was singing 702’s 1998 hit, Where My Girls At, “Your knowledge of terrible music never ceases to amaze me.”  I’d embed that video too, but YouTube won’t let me.

Do the girls in the Miley video look WAY too young to be crying about boys?  I think yes.  I think I was still really into dinosaurs when I was that old.  And space!  No boys.

“I’m one of the few men in the city that has nothing wrong with him”

Best. Voicemails. Ever. Apparently this guy met a woman and she talked to him for 2 minutes, gave him her card, and these were the voicemails he left her..

Really, I thought maybe I’d already heard the most full-of-shit voicemails in the world, but this guy might have them beat. This is my favorite part:

“Now I understand if you’ve got other issues, maybe you’re not playing games, I don’t know… maybe you were abused in childhood?…Maybe your mother has cancer, and you’re going to chemo…maybe you’re just a person who’s extremely frightened or has an anxiety disorder, maybe you’re on some medication for that…I don’t know, there could be another issue that I’m not aware of. But nobody says “Call me,” hands a person a business card and then doesn’t return calls. It’s extremely passive aggressive. You should actually look that up, passive-aggressive personality disorder”

The Doody family hope to raise profile of faggots

i dont even know where to start with this article, but here goes:

A West Midlands family is playing a central role in the quest to raise the profile of a forgotten British dish – faggots.

The Doody family from Wolverhampton has been crowned The Faggot Family in a national competition, and to kick off their reign they will launch National Faggot Week. […]

“The nation knows that the Cornish pasty, Yorkshire pudding, haggis and fish and chips are great British dishes, but all too often the faggot is left off that list,” said Janet Doody.

Her husband Fred added: “It’s unfair because faggots were a British delicacy long before any of the others.

“The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year.”

for some reason, it reminds me of the vacation movie. adam sent this to me.

Coming soon: spray on condoms

Seriously – this sounds like a big mess.  From Gizmoblog: “To cope with the problem, scientists from Condom Consultancy in Germany have invented revolutionary spray on condom that pumps liquid latex on the penis from a chamber and then dries to a regular condom within 20-25 seconds. Condom needs to be pulled off like conventional condom after use. Their further aim is to cut the drying time to 10 seconds.”

Someone is talking some crap about my lover

This an actual comment this blog received – and it was so amazing it deserves a post all to itsself.   I believe the rant is directed at my boyfriend, Xavier Santiago, and I don’t appreciate it.


“You only go by personalities. You don’t know how to judge. i am a groomer with 25 on staff and they all agree. You only vote for who you like not what they can do. You kept asking Jonathan what dog did he pick. It didn’t make any difference because he won the dog sniff challange so he could pick whatever do he wanted. Even Artis was surprised he knew he didn’t win that contest. I don’t think we will be watching the last show because we already know who will win. Artist. If he can do it or not. My dog I would never take to him that’s why he always gets bit. I would definetly take my dog to Jonathan he is a professional. To hit the van for another thing I don’t think an accident which did not hurt the animals is in the contract. You are crazy if you think you are a judge because you are not.”

I love you Xavier.

Old Kids on the Block?

I like what has to say about this…

Ohhhhh man. So this is really happening, huh. The New Kids on the Block have reunited. And not just for a tour, mind you. This unholy (re)union will also involve the release of an album which, from the sound of things, is going to make Donna Summer’s Crayons sound like the fucking Immaculate Collection by comparison. (That’s not nice, actually. We like “Stamp Your Feet” just fine. Really, we do)

The real kicker, though, for us, is this video. Couldn’t someone have told Jonathan , Jordan, Joey, Danny, and Donny that the mid-90’s are pretty thoroughly over, and that nobody (and by nobody, we mean NOBODY) makes videos like this anymore? Sheesh. Good luck, guys.

Yeah, good luck guys. You’re going to make a killing on the tour…

when he’s not yelling at his kid

alec baldwin is speaking at peta conferences (via gawker):

“I walked through Union Square on my way to acting class and got offered loose joints. Drug dealing was a great tradition in this city. There are other traditions people can get involved with in this city. When I was younger, I used to get a bottle of wine and get drunk under the Staten Island Ferry… so there are things like that you can do.” — Actor Alec Baldwin, at a PETA event last night, suggesting alternatives to the “traditional” New York tourist experience of riding a horse-drawn carriage.

no time for picture because i am at work. i have already wasted 45 minutes not getting sigur ros tickets.

i found a photo for you, dan.. from gallery of the absurd.

An alternative to sending lame dudes to the island..

NY Mag today has some interesting tidbits on scorned women taking revenge on men.  My favorite anecdote:

“Take, for instance, 23-year-old Kristina Caban, who persuaded a Guy Who Never Called to meet up with her at the Chelsea Inn — then Tasered him and used hot metal to brand an “R” on his torso.”

I generally say that the loser guys who don’t call back get sent to “the island for lost men” (see illustration below).

Once on the island, his number/email address is deleted (except for maybe a text message saying “FYI -you’re on the island” ..ahem, Liz).. and that’s that.  Sounds pretty tame to me, now.  Maybe I need a taser. hehe.

puff daddy colognes his balls

from some blog that was on gawker, that is quoting an article from the daily mail about puff daddy’s pre-going-out rituals:

“While I’m getting ready I like to relax with a drink – vodka and lemonade – and listen to some James Brown.
To make matters worse, the Didster, splashes on his cologne all over his newly waxed genitals.

Then I’ll have a manicure and pedicure – and yes, I wax as well. Men owe it to women to make sure they are well-groomed.”

i like the idea that puff daddy would say this because i already hate him so much.

Above is Diddy’s catchphrase a la Making the Band.. (I’m jumping in on this post, sorry Dan), but I think the real question is where does waxing your balls fall on the no bitchassness scale?  Cause, I’m thinking the two don’t go together.  -EM

final thoughts, via Gchat:

Dan: 1. i couldnt bring myself to post a picture of him
Dan: 2. i refuse to call him anything other than puff daddy
Dan:   the waxing doesn’t bother me too much
its the cologne on the balls after the waxing
1. that probably really hurts
me: i think waxing your balls makes you full of bitchassness
Dan: 2. that can’t be good for anyone

This guy’s job is soooo hilarious

If you haven’t been watching The Bachelorette, let me introduce you to Chris Harrison.  He is the host of that terrible reality show that apparently, we are DVRing.  Don’t judge! To be Chris Harrison, your  job duties include:

1.  Telling everyone, “I’m sorry to break up the party, but it’s time for the rose ceremony.”

2.  Saying, “Gentlemen, this is the final rose.”

You must be good at two things: ending a party and counting roses.

Well, that’s pretty much it.  He crashes the cocktail party every week, and I live for that shit, it cracks me up.

Your Guide to Free Booze

This is more of a mailing list than a blog but I thought I would post it anyways. It truly is your guide to free booze in the city. My Open Bar gives you a weekly schedule of promo events and parties with hella cheap drink deals or open bar. It also rates the events and provides clever little blurbs ala vice do’s and dont’s to help you decide whether they’re worth the effort. I feel like this would really come in handy when you have a guest in town and you don’t know what to do with them.

ps. i really like the banner art by Hope Gangloff. Check out her site here.

how to remember how many cups are in a pint, etc

From Apartment Therapy’s kitchen blog

So there’s:

2 Cups in a Pint
2 Pints in a Quart
4 Quarts in a Gallon

And so two “C’s” fit inside a “P,” two “P’s” fit inside a “Q,” and four “Q’s” fit inside a big, enormous “G.”
