30 Rock is more liberal than 24

I like what Gawker says about The Hills being conservative – “Heidi Montag endorses McCain, he calls her “a very talented actress”, John Adams twirls in his grave. Plus it’s all about remorseless spending and there are no gays on the show and, actually, thousands of gays in LA, especially working in fashion for God’s sake.”

No wonder I hate that show.

Kim does Ty Ty really well

Kim Stolz, aka the MTV news reporter and former ANTM contestant that went to college with Intern Dan, does a pretty awesome Tyra impression.  She was apparently pissed that Ms. Banks used “bitchy reporter” as a scenario for Top Model, since she and Tyra had a run-in at the FIERCEE Awards… (so hilarious- pronounced ‘fierce-ey’ and made up by Tyra, of course).  Anyway.    Here she is interviewing some other model at the real Fierceeeeeeeees.  

Video here.  The voiceover is the best part.

Crispy Clean Bacon Broiler

Want crispy bacon?  YES

However, this bacon doesn’t look crispy when she takes it out of the bacon machine.  It looks a little flopsy to me, and I don’t like flopsy bacon.  I don’t have a dishwasher, so I’m not really sold.  I’m also against any kitchen utensil that has only one purpose.  So, I guess the verdict on this is a no on this, but thought I’d share anyway.

if you see something, say something

also, don’t ride on the outside of trains, don’t run to catch a train, don’t walk between trains, let people get off before walking on with your bicycle and no eating on trains/putting bags or feet on seats (the last one is apparently a new one- my roommate got a ticket a couple weeks ago from a cop for putting his feet on the seat across from him. matate.) did i forget any others?

I already eliminated my music cred with Brit, soo..

I ALSO love this new Pussy Cat Dolls single.. a LOT.

It also makes me laugh when they try to show the one other girl in this group who sort of sings.

Womanizer videoooooo

Video here

I have to say, Brit looks pretty awesome here. She did have two kids and go nutso ya know! This is directed by the guy who did her toxic video.. I think he has a thing for Charlie’s Angels or something, cause she always has to be blond, brunette, and a red head.

I don’t really get this.

Two people have sent it to me claiming it was “hilarious.” I don’t really see why. I get that McCain is old, Barack is younger and and Sarah Palin is even younger (and dumber). is it a reference to the Straight Talk Express? If so, it’s still not that funny. Anyway, I welcome other people’s insights.

My little pony

Those who’ve been to Ocracoke surely remember the giant rearing pony in front of the Pony Island Motel. And you can’t miss its giant cock and balls. Just wanted to point out that this is not what a horse’s package actually looks like. And it’s the most detailed part of the statue. Weird.

Mortgage crisis explained using Pokemon! Thank youuu

Economist Kevin Nguyen explains the country’s economic woes to his younger sister, using Pokémon as an analogy. Seriously.

Kevin: Have you been following the news?

Olivia: Yeah, I don’t really get it.

Kevin: Imagine that I let you borrow $50, but in exchange for my generosity, you promise to pay me back the $50 with an extra $10 in interest. To make sure you pay me back, I take your Charizard Pokémon card as collateral.

Olivia: Kevin, I don’t play Pokémon anymore.

Kevin: I’m getting to that. Let’s say that the Charizard is worth $50, so in case you decide to not return my money, at least I’ll have something that’s worth what I loaned out.

Olivia: Okay.

Kevin: But one day, people realize that Pokémon is stupid and everyone decides that the cards are overvalued. That’s right—everybody turned twelve on the same day! Now your Charizard is only worth, say, $25.

That one

In case you missed it, McCain referred to Obama as “that one” in last night’s debate.  Here are some possible reasons why he did so, via Radar:

• He forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name out of fear that he might make the “Osama” slip-up.
• He did want to say Obama’s name so that he could explicitly make the “Osama” slip-up, but forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he has no respect for Obama and doesn’t believe they belong on the same stage.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he’s infuriated with Obama for not bending over and taking it like previous Democratic nominees.
• He was so busy channeling Ross Perot that he decided he might as well do an homage to the diminutive Texan’s “you people” moment.
• “That one” focus tested better than “the colored boy over there.”
• Old people have a harder time identifying discrete shapes and forms; McCain wanted to make clear that he was talking about Obama and not the bunting in the background.
• McCain has come to realize that his incredibly dishonest campaign, with its desperate use of fearmongering and racial animus, will go down in history as one of the ugliest attempts to win the presidency at the expense of honesty, comity, and basic human decency, and, worst of all, it won’t even be successful. This man, who spent five years under the most brutal conditions imaginable, has forever tarnished his legacy and when people one hundred years from now look back at the election of 2008 all they’ll remember him for is failed gimmicks, coded bigotry, and the disturbing way in which he doddered about the stage. His guilt—not only at destroying his own reputation, but at the low and poisonous way in which he’s tried to destroy Obama’s—is so overwhelming that McCain can barely shake Obama’s hand, meet his eye, or say his name.
• They all look alike.

I do love Go Fug Yourself

In fact, I was just thinking about how much I love Go Fug Yourself when I read their assessment of dressers in this month’s issue of Dwell (so best!). And I loved their post on “Eva Afugri” recently, but how could they forget that her hair style is totally the same as what Charlie did to that girl in the final challenge of this season’s Shear Genius??

Well, here’s the comparison that I really wish the Fug girls had remembered. I’m so smart.

Am I right???

Also, this debate is infuriating. I really liked when Obama just reminded people that John McCain said “Bomb bomb bomb Iran” that’s hilarious.

For the love of god, find me a new bag

LeSportsac has really shitty patterns right now. Brooklyn Industries doesn’t have anything with zippers that I like. And if I buy that new one from Urban Outfitters that Becky has, I’ll feel unoriginal and stalker-ish.

I really want this one, but it’s so expensive I could die. Doesn’t Urban Outfitters know we’re having a financial apocolypse????

So, CWL readers, I beg you: find me a good goddamn purse (must have a zipper on the top, thank you very much).

Another Interesting McCain Fact

I’ve posted before on how John McCain was once hot and that his hair turned entirely white during his first six weeks as a POW…but did you know he also can’t lift his arms higher than this? Yeah, it’s cause he was tortured for six years. Sad sad sad. Still doesn’t make him a good president. Well, it doens’t NOT make him a good president either, but you get my drift.

Max loves Taco Bell

My friend Max moved to Poland a couple months ago. He sent this to all his friends back in DC.

Greetings from Poland. Life is great, I miss you all, blah, blah, blah.

I really miss Taco Bell. I just want to stuff my face with Nachos Bell Grande and a Chalupa right now. And also eat that extra taco they give you that can be soft or hard-shelled. Fire sauce goes without saying so pretend I didn’t.

New Yorker Fiction podcast

Did you know you can listen to the New Yorker for freee!?  I downloaded a bunch of episodes of the fiction podcast, which is really great.  An author reads another author’s work, and then discusses with the host.  Made my subway ride home really nice today.. but don’t play this month’s unless you can handle sad.. not too shocking, it was “Dog Heaven” by Stephanie Vaughn, read by Tobias Wolff.   Sad but good!  Download here or on iTunes.

I almost got into fight with Haley Joel Osment

the post aka “How Haley Joel Osment ruined my Stereolab concert”

Last night I attended the Stereolab/LeLoup concert at Irving Plaza- very cool. I had never seen LeLoup before (our friend Sam’s band) so it was really great to see them play and the set was really different from the album, and Sam was really fun to watch and funny between songs. So we leave our really great front row spot to snatch another drink before Stereolab goes on and by the time we get back, our place is gone and the floor is really crowded. We squeeze up through the mass of people and to get close to our friends. Turns out no one was in this spot because there was an annoying group of kids on the left. Turns out the annoying kids are Haley Joel Osment + gf + friends. He bumped me a couple of times, waved his hands in my face and knocked my drink out of my hand (then apologized, offered to buy me another drink and then never did), danced the whole set (an hour and a half!), crawled on the floor a couple of times looking for his ‘water’ on the floor, and even attempted to partner dance with his gf in the very crowded space. I wish I had a video recorder because it was hilarious to watch when he wasn’t shouting “Emperor Tomato Ketchup 1995!” or hitting me in the face. We think he was tripping. tells me he is only 20 years old so he wasn’t drinking….

Anyways, my friend Kim actually almost got into a fight with Haley. He was kinda provoking her and she tried to dance back at him but then she slipped and accidentally kicked our other friend Nadia in the shins.

Mustache-a-thon for cancer

I would totally participate if I were a dude, but fortunately/unfortunately, my face is totally hairless. Here is a summary of the rules from the site…

Mustaches vs. Cancer is a two month mustache-a-thon where each participant solicits donations on behalf of their beautifully bristled upper-lip, in the end donating all the earnings to the pediatric department at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

This is an eight week mustache contest that will commence on October 4th and conclude on November 29th (the 56 days of Christmastache?). This is just in time for those holiday sales (I would hate to hear of a fellow comrade being thrown by his mustache in a fight with a suburban soccer mom for the last copy of “Rock Band 2”)! Each week, contestants will be required to upload photos of their mustache as proof it’s existence and as a personal marketing tool for donors. Upon the completion of the eight weeks, the extremely dignified individual bringing in the most donations will be crowned as the “Noblest Mustache on Earth”. Oh but wait, there’s more; a second champion, “The Peoples Champion”, will be the winner of an online poll. So, don’t be deterred by your lack of rich friends (I’m looking at you, Chester A. Arthur).

Thanks for the history lesson, Anne Marie

“The 1940s were an incredible period in Britain’s history. Throughout a savage world war with its horrors and deprivation, despite the shortage of food and clothing, in spite of air raids, bombing and the constant risk of death or loss, ordinary British people obeyed government instructions to ‘Keep calm and carry on.'”
