Has anyone heard of the HBO show Summer Heights High? My mom loves it and made we watch three episodes with her. It’s very funny and inappropriate. The same comedian plays these three characters.
here’s a skateboarding dog.
did anyone else watch the parade? no garfield this year….
To commemorate this occasion, I will give you –
Kitteh Has Too Much To Drink
and Cat Fart Explosion
THAT just about sums it up. Happy Thanksgiving!
these dudes are hilarious. i accidentally found this while procrastinating.
from nytimes– “Photographer Robbie Cooper shows just how focused young video-game players can be”
Yum yum turkey
no head necessary. thanks GQ via Jezebel.
My sister sent this to me. Exercising is fun! I wonder if Kota counts as an exercise toy because you can bounce on him.
So I am taking a class this semester ENTIRELY devoted to the discussion of images, making of idols, iconoclash and everything in between. I literally spent the whole day in the library researching the procession of images/idols (I’m going to attempt to make some fancy comparison to traveling exhibits and the processing of famous artifacts and works of art) for my big end of semester paper. Imagine my delight when I found this video on failblog just now…
I am so going to find a way to cite failblog in my paper.
you should watch to the end…
this song reminds me of kairos- this retreat thing i had to do at my catholic high school- i think brendan was a leader and it was ‘his’ song
but is her skirt too short? i’m concerned..
B, you have any insider scoop on this?
I learned this when my old boss Ronnie yelled to me across the cafeteria “did you hear Burlington is the healthiest place in the US? And the least healthy place is the U.S. State Department.” Zing!
My sister first introduced me to the “Target: Women” segments on Current.tv. They’re really good and funny, too, and full of truth facts.
Here’s one on weddings, which, apparently, have been on my mind (NO THEY HAVE NOT)
aah it won’t embed! http://current.com/items/88988193/target_women_wedding_shows.htm
I suggest looking through the archives. The one about Disney princesses is really funny, too.
Yes, I know. Short children’s books usually don’t make great feature-length films (see: cat in the hat, madeline, jumanji)
But when Dave Eggers writes the screenplay and Spike Jonze is the director, that starts sounding awesome.
That’s what’s up with Where the Wild Things Are. It sounds fucking amazing.
You can watch the leaked screen test here http://defamer.com/357717/where-the-wild-things-are-screen-test-captures-smell-of-childhood-in-a-bottle
Here’s the commercial that made me and Emily realize that our family is incomplete:
I should probably mention that the price of the greatest creature in the world is $239.00. Batteries not included.
THE WALKING, RIDE-ABLE, TALKING, MUSIC-PLAYING TRICERATOPS
Watch these kids have a fucking blast with my future favorite thing in the universe:
KOTA WHY WON’T YOU JUST COME TO MY HOUSE AND LET ME TICKLE YOUR CHIN AND FEED YOU LEAVES??
i think this was an ad once…for what, i’m not sure.
junior told me about this lady comic writer. i literally live 2 floors above cafe grumpy and frequent the same places. weird.
she forgot to mention that a block or so away from peter pan is the cinderella gift/card shop on Manhattan Ave
Fart Party here. spanks junior.
Google knows everything and now they are predicting the future…. apparently google can predict flu outbreaks better than the CDC according to where and how often people use google to search for “flu” -both frightening and amazing.
check it out here. they also provide an in-depth explanation of their methods which is also frightening/interesting.
I haven’t done blog of the day in a while but this one was particularly awesome.
There are so many. They go on forever…. check out more of em here.
We’ve been having internet problems at work and so the Verizon tech guy came today to check shit out. I hung out with him for a bit.. we talked about music, I ate a bagel, and he fiddled with my computer for a while. I checked email on my boss’s computer, so I wasn’t really paying attention to what he was doing. When he left, I checked my browser history – just cause I was wondering what sites are ‘internet test sites’ or what. Wonder no further.
I haven’t had a chance to watch yet.. but from the titles: “Man with world’s biggest penis” and “What’s in a name? (Penis)” I am pretty psyched. Thanks Verizon!!!
Shout of to Molly for sending this to me. Looks delicious. Is this a comment on his skin color? I’m going with yes.
I’m just amazed that I can search for zine by topic on the Columbia/Barnard online library catalog and then check them out. Rad. I love that Barnard also has a zine librarian. Probably ranks in top ten coolest jobs ever.
Check out the website- has links to places you can buy zines in the city and BK and some articles about academia/librarianship and zines HERE.
Maybe you guys all knew about zine libraries in schools and public libraries, but this stuff is new to me. When I was young, we had to walk uphill 3 miles in the snow both ways (or drive to Columbus) to the nearest collective/infoshop/coffeehouse to BUY your zine. You kids these days have it easy….
I don’t know where this is but it looks cool, so you should go and report back. I think there is going to be one in nyc as well….? Hopesies!
Didn’t play this with sound, so if it’s super offensive, tough luck.
This is a commercial in Australia that made lots of people complain.
THIS CYNDI LAUPER SHIT IS REALLY STUPID. I OFFICIALLY CALL JUMPING THE SHARK.
Also, Dan Humpfries shit is really stupid. And since when is NY Mag hurting for high school talent?
And another thing: I’m really tired of this “I Wish My Daddy Loved Me” from Chuck. And really? Mr. Bass is all ready to say “Well then, it’s out now. I killed a dude” after one conversation with Danny boy?
But I do love Mr. Geist (from Clueless).
This commercial for the ‘Wall-e’ DVD is the best part of GG tonight.
WHAT IS WITH THE PUNK ROCK MUSIC WHILE JENNY IS CRYING??
I guess I’m kind of live blogging gossip girl tivoed. sorry blog readers.
Well, in real life he has a daughter.
Thanks Dwell. You rock. You made me holiday cards with chairs. As holiday stuff. BEST!
they sent me an email today and i thought this one was particularly clever of wall-e and eva. congrats dudes. you are WAAAAY more creative than me. i was zombie barbie for halloween. i had to beg some white and blue facepaint off a stranger to pull it off too. yeah….
I’ll redeem myself at santacon and idiotarod. I promise….
see more HERE
thanks to adam…you’ve earned the new puppy that is coming with us to the whitehouse.
Also, apparently this commercial with Paris Review former editor George Plimpton kinda inspired him to play the PC in those commercials…
from this blog
In case you wanted to know what it looked like. Here’s her chillin in it on Friday:
And here’s her lounging around last year:
FYI: her dad killed that bear.
no idea who this guy is, we have no friends in common… but, his photos just made my day.
I can’t embed because I’m on a double-decker megabus right now.
These are pretty hilarious, but might scare Emily. Watch out for Rollerball!!
My sister just left for a Fulbright in Sri Lanka and has already started a blog. She’s moving to a city called Kandy. How awesome does that sound? Read about it here: http://alisonkandyland.wordpress.com/
I will most definitely do another post after she goes to the BABY ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE.
My new favorite blog – FUCK YEAH SHARKS. Margaret’s recommendation – It’s like LOL cats but it’s fucking sharks.
a very moving interview.
Sarah Palin didn’t prep for Couric interview, doesn’t know her continents..
IsObamaPresident.com is sooo best. thanks swissmiss
