Thanks, dead husband! What a thoughtful gift!

So this is an actual product review on Amazon (found and commented on by one of Drew’s friends).

After trying the Keurig B60 coffee maker at a friends and raving about it, my dead husband surprised me with one just like it for Valentine’s Day. It has been 8-months and I am “in love” with with K-Cup machine…


Henry S. Birdseye III says:
Did giving you the Keurig B60 coffee maker provide your husband with the closure he needed to return to the afterlife, or does his ghostly spirit still walk the earth, giving quality Keurig coffee makers to those he loved as a living person?

Jason Phillips says:
Just as one should never look a gift horse in the mouth, one should always beware of zombies bearing coffee makers. Even really fancy ones.

J Campbell says:
I’m still waiting for either Valentine’s or for my significant other to die so she can get me one. I can’t hurry up Valentine’s day, but let’s just say I’m working on the other…

get it.

via freewilliamsburg via gothamist:

And related, only because it involves the subway: A Free Williamsburg writer was on a L train (of course) with a woman was watching hardcore porn on her iPod and saying, “Oh, here we go, here we go, THERE YOU GO, GET IT, GET IT, OHhhhhhh Damn, let’s get a close-up, zoom in, wake up New York check this shit out, close-up New York City!!!”

almost as good as the time i saw a woman start trying to hit some dancing kids and telling them “i wish i had my knife.”

these bike riders in traffic=no

edit (first post was too hasty): this will not embed (damn you vimeo). i guess that these guys are good bike riders, but they are idiots. if nora saw most them, she’d start yelling at them for not wearing helmets.

but the parts&labor song used in the video is good, so props for the music choice.

All Emily has ever needed – night carafe

Too bad I already got Emily’s birthday present. She absolutely needs this:

Night Carafe
This set, including Carafe and Glass, is the work of a Japanese family-owned business that’s been producing glassware for generations. Made of blown glass, the Carafe has a spout for easy pouring and the Glass serves as a lid when stored on top of the Carafe. The Night Carafe may be intended for the bedside table, but its elegant presentation and functional design make it just as suitable for your office, study or dining area. Stands 7.5″ tall and holds up to 15oz of liquid.
Thanks Design Within Reach. Now Emily does not have to have 800 cups of water next to her bed. Drives me nuts.

shoe ‘rack’ for nora

Don’t know why but it seems like something you would post about/want….
From Crunch Gear blog
I’ve got a fair number of shoes and I try to keep them in the closet with the rest of my wardrobe, but we all know how that goes. If I had one of these things in my entryway I’d still kick them off, but now I’d be kicking them with a purpose. As you can see, the opposed brushes catch your shoes and suspends them, and I assume knock off any fluff they’ve accumulated. Unfortunately, good ideas like this stay in the boutiques for a while and cost a mint, in this case about €2000, or $2500.

Thanks Steve!

let’s free John McCain

This first piece – “Free John McCain” – is a satire about an alternate universe where McCain defects from the GOP and unleashes his inner liberal.


Adam’s friend did this. I like how you can recognize all the locations, like Union Square and the escalator inside Philene’s Basement/ DSW on 14th Street. Well done!

David Sedaris on Undecided Voters

“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

Ok, I’ll admit it.

She really is a high-fashion Alaskan and does look good for a woman in her 40s. But just like John McCain being hot once upon a time and not being able to lift his arms due to years of torture…it doesn’t mean she’d make a good VP or Pres. However, I like her tied jackets and how she “breaks up the suit” (something I’m really scared to try).

use this to polaroid-ize your pictures

it’s only available for macs, so sadly, I can’t use it. But someone else should polaroid-ize that awesome picture of McCain licking Barack’s butt at the debate.

a little bit…of lykke li

Guess who played a sold out CMJ show with Micachu at Bowery tonight? Yeah….lykki li….

Here is a story for you- I met this girl on her first US tour about a year and a half ago on a Thursday night at Hiro ballroom. I was pretty drunk though and I mostly just remember going crazy and dancing on stage. My friend had to remind me about the cool girl I met, Lykke Li who opened for the headliner who I don’t even remember now. The point is that I’ve been listening to Little Bit for a while now and I’m glad that she is blowing up and on Victoria Secret commercials and whatnot. Though I am pissed that I couldn’t get into her show tonight….

The Boa Artist

So, I’m kind of obsessed with The Pick Up Artist.  Sure, trying to get a girl to go home with you is skeevy.. but, Mystery is so hilarious and off-beat, I can’t NOT watch him dole out advice.  It’s kind of like Beauty & the Geek minus the bimbos and plus a lot of piercings.  There is a dude make-over episode right at the start of the season.. amaaazing!  (Don’t worry Nora, I did not delete.)

So in the last episode.. the challenge winner won Mystery’s “special accessory” to help him in the club. Special accessory = black boa.  Honestly, the poor kid is not only scared shitless to talk to girls, but now he has to do it with a BOA?  I don’t care how drunk I am.. if a guy lays a boa on me in a club, I’m going to think he’s off the freakin reservation.  Mystery should be loading these guys up with string cheese to hand out in the bar.   I swear, that would do the trick.  PS.  This show is greatly entertaining.

A MySpace Bulletin from Dr. Steve Brule

Of course Dr. Steve Brule is in my top 8 friends… read up on his big news:subject: I’M GETTING MARRIED!

“And mummy​ said it’d never​ be so.

So long,​ “​Livin​g on Your Lones​ome.​”

I’d like to annou​nce that I asked​ one Miss Sarah​ Palin​ to marry​ me at a recen​t McCai​n-​Palin​ campa​ign stop here in Penty​ and she said HELL YEAH.​ No, make that SHIT YEAH.​ 

We took the Justy​ to the arcad​e and I showe​d her the diffe​rence​ betwe​en “​Morta​l Komba​t”​ and we playe​d air hocke​y.​ Thing​s got a littl​e frisk​y.​ I am start​ing to wonde​r what she’​s gonna​ say when she finds​ out I’m a virgi​n.​

Somet​imes,​ when it’s just me and her, she calls​ me “​First​ Dude”​ and I feel like so AWESO​ME.​ Somet​imes we get all lost in our words​ and forge​t what we’​re sayin​g.​ And somet​imes we just make stuff​ up so we can look all smart​ and words​ and fun and stuff​.​ 

And she total​ly gets the thing​ about​ eatin​g ants cuz they’​re made outta​ prote​in.​”

Now go watch Brule’s Rules cause it’s my favorite!

It’s MANTYHOSE season!!

Once you have discovered pantyhose – and liked it – you might not want to leave off wearing it anymore. It’s fun to experiment with all the colors and yarns and patterns and thickness of pantyhose – it’s fun to try out all the styles and to dress our legs in these materials.
