CHANGE YOUR BOOKMARKS! We’ve officially moved over to www.crapwelike.com!
All new content will be posted there! WOOHOO!
…you must learn about where the hobbits dwell.” I forgot how great Yo La Tengo’s video for Sugarcube until right now.
An oldie but a goodie.
…and I love Peter Sagal even more after watching this, his 1988 appearance on Jeopardy:
Dan sent that to me ages ago, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. Nora fail.
Also, I love this story he wrote for the NY Times Magazine in 2007. So adorable.
Czech photographer Vlad Artazov uses nails to create sculptures of everyday situations. A couple examples:
This is a great 8-bit cover of one of Magnetic Field’s 69 Love Songs (an album that is deserving of its own post). Here is 8-bit All My Little Words:
And here is the original:
i snorted a little bit when i watched this.
found on ed droste’s twitter. he also posted a cute video of a kid dancing to the song “two weeks”:
Today is CWL’s 1 year anniversary! In celebration, here are our top three posts most trafficked posts of all time (sorry, definitely not our BEST posts..)
aka – the post about the Verizon guy looking up kind of dirty vids on my work computer including Man With World’s Biggest Penis and this:
#1 – For Liz
Honorable mention goes to this dog is better than michael phelps.
Top search engine referral terms for the year: ed westwick, bulldog puppies, michael phelps, suri cruise, the hills, nom nom nom
in conclusion: Gossip Girl, Suri Cruise and penis vids are the way to go. Here’s to another year of CWL and maybe actually moving over to crapwelike.com.. somedayy, I promise.
Judging from the number of views this video has, apparently I’m late to this. But it’s still awesome.
University of Florida shark researcher George Burgess says the number of reported shark attacks worldwide dipped to a five year low last year.
there is only one solution to this problem. a masked crime spree/dance party:
i don’t know if this actually counts as a blog (it’s blog-like) but several people sent this to me (including exintern dan who posted it on his gchat status message first and therefore “wins”). beautiful little set of photos from cristopher niemann of tiny things made out of legos that remind him of nyc.

…which might lead you to believe that these seats would be something we like. Personally, I think they’re a little gross. Dan? Care to weigh in?
They are sold here
that fake Eames is driving me nuts though
as far as i can tell, this show is called “torturing your pets with food,” and i love it.

HE HAS A LITTLE BLANKET!!!!
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!
thanks to adam…you’ve earned the new puppy that is coming with us to the whitehouse.
1. voting makes you a worthwhile person
credit for the photo goes to jess. click it for a bigger version.
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.”
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.
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.
Thanks Samuel Owen Gallery!!! These fucking rock. I want them all.
Steph- this one’s for you:
Becky, they didn’t have one for Indianapolis, but this reminded me of you:
Eems, this one’s for you:
And Danny, this is for you because we’ve never really gone on vacation together:
and was mistaken for a Spaniard? So embarrassing.
It can’t embed, so check it out here: http://static.reuters.com/resources/flash/include_video.swf?edition=US&videoId=91851. It has some butts in it, so don’t watch it someplace that will get you in trouble.
stolen from videogum
edit: now with more picture of the pooch.
hahaha, I’m so funny. these lamps are awesome.
Funny story: Intern Dan and I went into a store where everything was expensive and they had lamp #4 there (which is totally fucking huge – they have it in Daniel’s office on Ugly Betty [see here]) and Dan tried to adjust it and move it and I freaked the fuck out and told him to stop because he was going to break it. Wait, that story sucks, sorry guys. And sorry for yelling at you in the store, Danny.
this is the best news story of all time.
Neighbors of Andy Lacasse say the sign, which says “OBAMA HALF-BREED MUSLIN [sic]” breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.
“I got nothing good to say about Obama,” Lacasse told News 13.
Lacasse put the sign in his front yard four days ago.
“If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there,” Lacasse said.
stolen from adam’s gchat status.
restaking my claim to dumb posts about animals.
i blatantly stole it from gawker. also newly reorganized wordpress.com page confused me.
in peru, they hold an annual guinea pig festival. it includes a cute fasion show (just like project runway!) where i suppose a king and a queen are crowned:
and after they crown the winner, they eat the guinea pigs (just like top chef!). look at the gallery if you don’t believe me (its pictures 7 and 8).
I think this is supposed to be cute or something…maybe romantic? If so, it’s beyond me, although I do like the grey/black fading in the numbers and the hot pink. But yeah, the big design element with the “you” and “me” business is…meh…I dunno
..so Meetza will be handling my calls.
Dan: asleep on the job!
Dan: i just called your phone, meetza has quite an attitude. i think you need a new assistant.
one that’s less queeny.

I am working from the home office right now… which is kind of hard to do and stay focused. Let me illustrate:
This is the cover for the new edition of Walter Benjamin’s The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction that will be a part of Penguin’s Great Ideas series:
The essay is also great. If you are looking for a great piece of cultural criticism, you can read the entire essay on marxists.org.
See the rest of the covers here.
The day has come, when our little intern has climbed the corporate ladder all the way to the top.
Yesterday, I broke the blog. The following gauntlet was laid down:
Dan: oh wow
its really broken
if you fix it you can be a non intern
you have 24 hours
like in swordfish
—– 22 hours later ——-
Dan: TAKE AWAY INTERN
I FUCKING FIXED THE BLOG
I can’t argue with that; even if I am a dictator. The blogger formerly known as Intern Dan, will be known as Dan, henceforth. Don’t screw the pooch!
get ready: www.randomkittengenerator.com
Dan: im about to blow your fucking mind
you are right
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.
its like the movie love liza with phillip seymour hoffman, but instead of huffing gas, you can huff god.
riding bikes is what all the cool kids do!
