Kanye West Will Let You Finish

Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

Picture 2A company from Georgia that advertising also has a scripture from the Bible on it’s website.  I couldn’t help but wonder: this is a Southern thing, right?

I Thought This Was Called “Things Everybody Does”…No?

I don’t understand the remarkableness of the observations found in the following quote:

Video games. Greasy tacos. Wisecracks about scoring government-sanctioned weed. Meeting Mila Kunis gives you a glimpse of what might’ve happened if the Phoebe Cates character in Fast Times at Ridgemont High had somehow spawned a child with Jeff Spicoli.

Because:

a) Up until recently, I was operating under the assumption that all girls were like this.  Apparently they’re not? Go figure.  Well, all the ones I know are…Which leads me to…

b) Why do guys think it’s suuuch a crazy thing when girls act like this? Hello, we’re not all Paris Hiltonwannabes watching the Lifetime Channel, while gorging ourselves on Ben & Jerry’s, scheming to hook ourselves a man.  We don’t all want to date Jon Gosselin just to end up in the pages of US Weekly.  Many of us would never be caught dead watching any movie starring Kate Hudson, or, let’s face it, worse: Sandra Bullock.

So cheers, Mila Kunis.  I salute you for staying nerdy, eating greasy Mexican food, getting high, and dating my childhood crush, Macaulay Culkin.  Stay gold, Ponyboy.

And oh, Details magazine: go fuck yourself.

Mila Kunis is Funny, Fearless, and a Total Babe [Details]

Okay, so there’s a lot of weird stuff on youtube. Given.  But this is maybe the most bizarre video I have ever seen (and once, I youtubed a bunch of Enya videos — have you ever seen an Enya video? Talk about fucked up…).

Anyway, this little gem is Bonnie Tyler singing “Against the Wind”, wearing, what appears to be some type of Medieval wench/pirate outfit.  Meanwhile, in the background, clips from some 1980’s movie about, one can only assume, some parable of Capitalism, nuclear power plants, and…hang gliders?

So you know this song:

Of course you do, everybody does.  When it comes on, even the wall floweriest of the wall flowers, the leftiest of the two-left feet crowd, and that hipster with the really great neck muscles honed during countless nights of aloofishly nodding along to throbbing beats in crowded clubs gets on their feet, and starts breakin’ it down.

But did you know, the chick who sings this song died, like two years ago? Yeah, didn’t think so. In fact, no one does*. So here we all are, gettin’ down to this song in the club (or in that Target commercial) all the while, without a clue that the singer has died. Freaky, right?

*Sidenote: No one even actually knows the lyrics to this song either.  New Roomate and I didn’t even know they were singing in English…

Okay, but, Why?

Old Men New Kids on the Block were on the Today Show this morning.  It was like watching a Celebrex commercial.  You know how there’s been a revival to bring the 80’s back? I think this appearance just killed that revival…

 

Um, Really?

You know how they say anything that happens once, happens once; twice is a coincidence; three times is a trend?

Okay then, when did we decide, as a nation (or maybe just as a City – I’m lookin’ at you, San Francisco) that clipping our nails on public buses is a really good trend? Because I didn’t receive the facebook invite to that meeting, nor did it pop-up in my Outlook calendar.  And, quite frankly, I would have liked to have been there to veto that decision.
