lowlife: Californication star David Duchovny has gone into rehab for sex addiction. All that time, Mulder wasn’t looking for extra-terrestrial life, he was just looking to score. Another childhood myth shattered.
tylercoates: Shredding: serious business! Shredding is the most fun of all the menial office tasks. Copying has a Zen-like aspect to it, but shredding is just so darn satisfying.
John McCain, Internet Commenter
There has been much written about Barack Obama ability to harness the amazing and all-encompassing powers of the Internet in his campaign. After reading this extensive commentapalooza, I decided that John McCain is running the race in the style of the comments on Gawker (or AV Club or any other number of examples). It’s the firsties-campaign: respond immediately with something snarky but...

doree: From [redacted] to firstname.lastname@example.org date Wed, Aug 27, 2008 at 5:52 PM subject Freelance Payment / Better Off Dead Sorry to email you out of the blue like this, but I’m a follower on your tumblr and was wondering if you could clarify something. You see, I’m kind of in the same predicament, having not been paid for a freelance piece since April, and I also have...

Ben & Jerry's Flavor Graveyard →
maura: steveisaacs: I miss you Rainforest Crunch… reading through reminded me of from russia with buzz. mmmm. The best part about this is that indeed there IS a real flavor graveyard at the Ben and Jerry’s factory in Waterbury. I have a photo somewhere in which I am kneeling in front of the tombstone for White Russian.
OMG Mad Dog Called In! And He's Crying!
Right of Way
C’mon, NBC. Show Men’s Épée. It’s easiest to follow, there’s no right of way, no confusing target area, and no scary ladies running at each other full tilt as with the Women’s Sabre you broadcast yesterday. I know the Americans get perennially routed so you can’t put together packages about who’s going to law school afterwards, but it’s not like...
Heat Lightning: Fraudulent Redhead Celebs →
mollylambert: Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball, Ann-Margaret, Gillian Anderson, Christina Hendricks, Shirley MacLaine, Molly Ringwald and even more women you probably thought were natural redheads but aren’t, on This Recording Some of these really hurt! And some, I just had forgotten whether it was important to me. That means you, Gillian Anderson.
"The Olympics are for people who like reality...
katiebakes: Will Leitch differentiates between sports and athletics, putting the Olympics in the latter camp. So long as you understand his line-in-the-sand distinction, the argument makes sense. So much of the appreciation of the Olympics really is a function of the backstories, the instant gratification, and the fleeting nature of the Games; this does align it fairly well with Reality TV. ...

Memo to Kurve and JoeDoe
Dear Kurve and JoeDoe, Many restaurants are open on Tuesday nights, during which time they exchange food and service for payment. Considering the cost of rent in the East Village, this is something you might want to consider. That is all. Best, Alexander

Counting Crows and Maroon 5 On Tour!
No, I’m not excited either. But driving around today I heard and advertisement for this little duo’s show in Bethel Woods, and I was disappointed that the tour itself didn’t have a name. Henceforth, I dub it the “Knee Deep in Pussy” tour. Or is “Get More Action Than We Should” better?
Child Preadator Alert!
At this very momnt, there’s a line of tween girls snaking around Bryant Park, all waiting in line to see Jonas Brothers. Yes, I didn’t add the “the” on purpose. Yes, I’m ashamed that I have to know that. For work purposes, I swear!

Dear defenders of the scone
cajunboy: I’d just like to take a moment to thank all of you who reblogged/emailed me to launch fierce rebuttals to my vilification of the scone earlier today. Somehow, this navel gazing on my part led some girl to email her cousin who emailed her friend who is a lobbyist for big scone…something like that…ANYWAY, I’m happy to report that there is now, as we speak, a box of scones in route to me...

Does anyone know if this chain that served Tex-Mex food still exists? It may have been called Galveston’s, now that I think about it. I’m pretty sure it was the first place I ever saw a fajita.
