My mom’s new favorite show

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.

idol fail…

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.

Burlington is like the healthiest place ever

And the smartest, and the youngest, and the awesome-est.

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!

Target: Women

My sister first introduced me to the “Target: Women” segments on 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!

I suggest looking through the archives. The one about Disney princesses is really funny, too.

Movie I Can’t Wait For: Where The Wild Things Are

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

My dino really rocks, he’s Kota the triceratops!

I should probably mention that the price of the greatest creature in the world is $239.00. Batteries not included.

Dear Videogum, You win.

I have been fighting Videogum for a while.. sure it’s funny, but Nora and Drew both love it so much, I had to disagree just to be a shit. Today they posted cat takes a ride on a Roomba and that is the best thing ever. At the moment, Meetza is terrrrrified of our Roomba, but maybe I can sit her down and have her watch this video and she’ll see how fun it looks. She watches TV now, btws. Last night I got home and she was tuning in to the 11pm news. She’s the smartest cat!

google can predict the future

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.

NSFW, unless you’re on someone else’s work computer..

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!!!

Barnard Zine Library

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….

Seriously, GG?


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.

Little Edie: The Ultimate Recessionista

From Jezebel: “Nowadays we’re inundated with tips for essentially how to manufacture the illusion of an unchanged lifestyle, and that’s not tenable. Little Edie, from madness or wisdom, didn’t do that. She created a new reality for a new set of circumstances.”

She’s received credit before in the form of high-end magainze spreads…but now it’s time Little Edie was recognized as the ultimate recessionista. She could make one garmet do so many things!

This email practically made me cry

I can’t believe Barack found the time to email me before his acceptance speech. And I can’t believe that he won the election because of ME!! Ahhhhhh LOVE.

Stephanie —

I’m about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don’t want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign — every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it’s time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing…

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,
