If you read it before, go read it again- the NY Times Op-Ed piece apologizing to Muslims for America being openly racist to them.  As with any civil rights issue, it’s not enough for the minority being oppressed to decide they want change, the majority has to join in the fight.

“My life is just really complicated right now…”  I eulogize my five favorite tired-ass boy moves at Lemondrop.

For those of you who follow this sort of thing, a breakdown of the ratings for Thursday TV.

Here’s a silly thing I wrote peeking into Daniel Dae Kim’s journal for TV.com.

Hey, ladies?  Men don’t even notice your high heels. But you know who does- other women.

I wrote a Bored to Death 101 at TV.com to get you ready for Season 2 this Sunday!

Giant squids are eating people now, so that’s a thing.

This is my interview with Alie and Georgia about their new show, appropriately titled Drinks with Alie and Georgia.  I love these ladies.

Hard-hitting research on projectile pooping from SEED Magazine.

Emily Post died 50 years ago tomorrow, and in celebration, Lemondrop had me read her entire book and write about it.

Chloe Moretz- a young and amazing actress who often stars in movies that didn’t need to be made.  Kumail keeps telling me the reviews for Let Me In are great, but still, why?  And now she’s in an Emily the Strange movie? I repeat, why?  (Sidenote- anyone named Emily who wore combat boots even once was given more Emily the Strange merch than she could count, I promise you.)

Elisabeth Moss spins me right round baby, right round.  Similar to a record.

There’s a new Twitter in town!  TechCrunch sums up what you need to know about it.

I talk about Madonna and meat dresses and Lady Gaga and the problem with kids these days at Lemondrop.

Here’s a great mini-documentary about Threadless, badass Chicago tshirt company that has become huge in the last four years.

Brilliant brilliant brilliant- a collection of “sorry I haven’t posted in a while” posts from random blogs.

Ant Death Spiral isn’t the name of a band you should already know.  It’s real, and it’s terrifying.

This guy was vegan and vehement until he read Meat: a Benign Extravagance.  Now he says “I no longer believe that the only ethical response is to stop eating meat.”  Read why.  (thanks to Kevin Slaughter)

The charm just oozes out of Alie and Georgia- watch their show Drinks with Alie and Georgia, and read my scintillating interview with them next week when it comes out!

Coco (yes, that Coco) killing it in a fashion show for Sachika Twins.

Ahem.

Tim Gunn on Taylor Momsen: “You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you.”  Daaaaaaayum.

Old School plus Gran Torino?  Produced by Ryan Reynolds?  I think I’m on board.

Here’s a thing I wrote for the comedy magazine Re: Com about why watching comedy at festivals is better than watching music at festivals.

This is a really interesting article about why more people believe Obama is Muslim now than ever.  Essentially, it’s about their dissatisfaction with his presidency and the way the questions are worded more than anything.  If you ask someone if Obama’s a Muslim you get one number, but if you ask a person what race they are and then if Obama is Muslim, the number jumps because they’re reminded of how he is different than them.  A must read. *NEWSFLASH* He’s not Muslim, but why on earth would it matter if he was?

A creepy experiment with men’s pants at Esquire, where they measured the actual waistband of size 36 pants to see how big they actually were.  Every single one they measured was over 36 inches.  It’s ingenious, because if you go to Old Navy and are pleasantly surprised to fit your fatass into a 36″ waist, you’re going to keep going back.  Often.  Plus then they can accommodate plus sizes without having a plus sized line.  Evil genius.

Disappointing 90s movies.  Dig it.

I just interviewed Alie and Georgia for Lemondrop (it’ll go up next week sometime), and they are the coolest.  Their webshow “Drinks with Alie and Georgia” premieres this Monday at Food2, and here’s one of the YouTube videos that got them the show!

This Chinese woman sued a movie theater for wasting her time.  Sounds like Coupon: the Movie: the Sequel.
