As done by my good friend (and former teacher) Dennis – spoilers alert, but if you think you’ll never see this movie, this is the funniest synopsis I’ve read ever. This movie rivals Wicker Man (my fav) in ridiculousness.
read at your leisure after the jump
…because this clip is so best. Want to go to there.
Ok, new favorite blog ever – I found this after a couple clicks around on perfectpandas.com
Oh Shaq! You are the winner!
thanks Drew for this. I really think those dog sweaters look uncomfy – I’M SOLD!
If you really love True Blood (like I do) and you want to drink some bloodlike stuff while you watch, you’re in luck! They are going to make it a real (not actually blood) beverage – the NYT says so. Sort of gross right? But how fun would it be to have a True Blood party and drink that stuff and then bite people. FUNSIES!
I like this description of these delish looking pies on sticks ‘Pies to go. Work friendly, Driving friendly, Boyfriend friendly, Cellulite friendly, and embarrassment free pie pops.’
This website is cute and new and Drew made some pictures for it! His drawings might be my favorities, but ya know, I’m biased. The mastermind behind SMEBT is Sanjay, and here’s his comic which is also great!

Baby eating Airplane
Rabbit Hash, KY knows how to run an election. Meet their mayor, Lucy Lou.
Personally, I think the cat candidate was robbed. Travis was 2nd runner up- from his bio:
“Travis chose Rabbit Hash and you should choose this cat to be the new Mayor of Rabbit Hash. He is the ONLY candidate that actually resides in Rabbit Hash.” Sad. More information on this historic election here.
Creepy or awesome? You decide.
i’ve done similar things – my AC installation methods have involved used bricks, towels and magazines, but i made it work! more super-helpful fixing strategies here.
Dr. Zizmor and 1888 Margarita are classics – but this may be my favorite
..about which the BoHF says “Good cause, but scary. I wonder if the person who got his eyes knows all the gruesome shit they saw on Law and Order.”
love that. see all five here.

Found this blog’s author on Yelp – but it’s totally awesome and I think it will re-vamp my shopping in the city. Here she reviews one of my favorite boutiques in the city, Pippin – where I found my clocky and favorite topaz ring.
“Pippin Vintage Jewelry is like entering a flea market without the haggling patrons and piles of junk. With vintage pieces discovered mainly on the East Coast, this boutique offers a variety of affordable items from pearl strands, brass watches, turqoise rings and even clip-on earrings. Their eclectic collection spans from the pre-1900s to the 1980s, but they also have some re-worked pieces like Victorian jacket buttons made into rings (around $40). Their prices are affordable and not typical of Manhattan, with the range from $1-$200+. You can find a great necklace or ring for $25, and the higher-end diamonds and rubies are displayed inside the glass case.
Pippin has enough eccentric pieces that you can make your own creation, like antique keys that could be added to a long layering necklace, or pins that could double as barrettes. When looking through the packed store, make sure to take some time and open the shallow drawers filled with random extras that cost less than $5 and make you feel like you you’ve discovered a treasure at the bottom of the bargain bin (without the actual rummaging).
Jewelry is not their only specialty, they also have a wide variety of accessories including vintage bags, clutches, belts, scarves, gloves, hats, and more, such as a cosmetic carved mirror from a 1920s Norwegian cruise ship ($30). Also check out their vintage home goods store next door, where you can find Bauhaus vases, 1950s Coca-Cola crates, and even obscure black-and-white photos for $1.”
Now that you know my jewelry secret shopping spot (located on 17th St. between 6th & 7th) go here for more ideas from this blog.
I especially love how confusing the normal towel looks at the start of this video.
join gym is still on my todo list.. this dog wins.
I’m not the craft fair expert of CWL, but I did go to this holiday fair in December and did almost all my Christmas shopping there, so I”m totally down for this in June! Mark your calendars! More info here
1. Tally Hall is this band. 2. The band is full of cute boys (which one is your favorite I don’t even know who can pick just one?). 3. These cute boys sing awesome songs that are pop-like and fun. 4. They have a hilarious-super-internet show that Drew briefly participated in dressed as Waldo and he animated some stuffs.
Actually, I saw Tally Hall TWICE this weekend, yeah, really I did – once at the Mercury Lounge in New York and once in Westport, CT. Here they are:
and this might be my favorite new song of theirs, but I love the last CD too.
Do I sound like a fan girl? Pshhhh I’m okay with that. Also these guys are nice and I’ve met them so YEAH i’m THAT COOL. hehe.
I especially love the Hillary section on this one.
This is the best bag LeSportSac makes, Nora and I can both confirm that. But now it’s DISCONTINUED!! WHYYY?! It is what we’ve called “clown car bag” because so much shit fits in it and it doesn’t even look bulky. Observe below (though this is a pattern I hate):
I even wrote them a damn email. I say lets boycott until Anna is back.
OK great, cause I want these:
the ultimate swine flu protection???
thanks, stumble-upon. more knitty magic here.
A few of us here at CWL have moved or moved into new apartments recently, and I for one have been on the hunt for a new living room rug. Well, I should say that I WAS on the hunt until I found this one:
.. very much in the same style as CWL, I love this blog and I think it’s sweet. This guy says: “Sometimes Mr. Internet shows me stuff I’m sure my girlfriend (“Roo”) will like. Rather than put it all in my main tumblelog, or send her multiple emails a day, I’ll post them here. Maybe you’ll like them, too.” And it’s stuff like this!
I love all these things! Which means, I am this guy’s girlfriend? Well I guess not, but his girlfriend certainly has good taste. More here.
i admit, i thought it would be sort of easy to be a good writer-of-comics (minus the drawing part).. but actually now i’m not so sure!
here’s a challenge! make this comic funny with your own word bubbles and drew will put some best ones on his site, so he claims. i’m gonna try it later, so watch out. if mine sucks though, i’ll just blame the artist. Here’s the full-sized image.
Sounds like a threatdown to me, but this guy is best friends with a bear he raised himself. A GRIZZLY BEAR.
Me: Preppy white guy in a polo and jeans. I saw you last May in Central Park. You had curly hair, a black jacket and looked very skeezy and odd. You were walking your cat on a leash.
I didn’t talk to you, but I wish I had. Why did your cat have a leash? Why were you walking your cat in the first place? Is your cat a ferocious animal that will attack others on sight without the leash? Do you secretly want a dog but are allergic to them?
So many questions I wanted to ask. So many answers I never received. So many missed opportunities. A lifetime of regrets.
this was on craigslist.. thx liz! i belive i know the answer though : cats run away, you would have to leash them. also, i have totally wanted to walk Meetza. also, this is a long time to wait to write into craigslist.. a whole year this poor prepster has been tortured!
Billed as “Where self-important tweets get the recognition they deserve,” this site lets you vote on how douchey some tweets are by awarding back pats. Some of my faves below:
@StefanPommepuy is having a private OPEN HOUSE at his $6M Hollywood Hills house. wine & hors d’oeuvres! Invitation only. so email to RSVP, & for address 🙂
@triciagoyer I have 53 more pages to read on The Swiss Courier galleys. The book is hard to put down … even when I wrote it!
@MKReflections I make multi-million $ decisions on a regular basis — why is it soooo difficult to decide what to do with my hair?
more self-involvement here
Also I saw a bulldog puppy on my way to work today!!! AW best day ever!
If someone ever told me I was the cheese on their baguette, I’d be super-flattered.
this is Le Le and they are french and I thought it was fun and Drew showed me this, obviously, cause otherwise this would be a Britney Spears video.
I really liked this project, which shows little robots traversing Washington Square Park in NYC with only the help of strangers.
“Every time the robot got caught under a park bench, ground futilely against a curb, or became trapped in a pothole, some passerby would always rescue it and send it toward its goal. Never once was a Tweenbot lost or damaged. Often, people would ignore the instructions to aim the Tweenbot in the “right” direction, if that direction meant sending the robot into a perilous situation. One man turned the robot back in the direction from which it had just come, saying out loud to the Tweenbot, “You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.” There’s a video too!
I love this print so much, I told Vicki I wanted to put it in our new apartment. Should I?? Not sure. At any rate, Brandon Bird’s stuff is hilarious and great. It’s sort of like my love for animals doing things they aren’t supposed to (like ride a bike!), only it’s celebrities doing things you wouldn’t imagine (like be a lame Sega loser..) more here!
This one you have to “diffuse” to get it to shut up.
This one you have to hit the target.
There’s also my favorite alarm clock, which is when I call Emily when I walk to work from Dan’s house. So I guess, in that case, I’m the alarm clock.
.. in Des Moines famed bulldog beauty contest aka my dreams.
Porterhouse (the handsome dog in pic number one) had finished in 2nd place the last two years, so congrats for making it to the big time!! Now I just have to stop myself from googling ‘adopt bulldog puppies’ for the rest of the day. Damnit. Pics via Jezebel.
What a showdown.
Meetza just drinks out of our toilet, but these cats are productive.
“When asked by BBC why the band chose “Womanizer,” Alex Kapranos said it was because it’s the best song out in the last few months.” via stereogum, from drew.
I feel like horses in wigs is a total CWL subject, so I had to post. UK newspapers are tearing it up lately.
Becky showed me this, which comes from Nadia. AMAZINGNESS! I need to freedomize the Ford Explorer!
It looks so peaceful.
This reminds me of when I was a little girl and I used to arrange all my My Little Ponies in a circle around me. And if I was feeling particularly amitious, I’d use my troll dolls, too.
Anyway, this artist (Brooke Inman) uses colored pencils, photographs, markers and other shit to do this. I can just imagine Emily watching me do something like this and saying “You’re stressing me out!”
I love Pharell. Especially when he’s trying to get McD’s to open early! Hilarious.
I have wanted a headboard for a WHILE but probably am not going to spend hundred of dollars on that at the moment. Nora, I’m suprised you haven’t posted this already:
I didn’t. He’s cute! How adorable is that? I thought it was a lady! This Ricky Gervais vid has made the rounds but it’s pretty great if you haven’t watched it.
