Incredible Anti-Aids Video (nsfw) →
French anti-aids campaign promoting sidaction.org I wouldn’t open the video if you’re at work - it’s pretty much 100% nudity but it’s totally worth it. Great concept. Powerful message (even if it is in French).
Ron Paul Scares Me
Newsletters printed under Ron Paul’s name dating back at least 10 years (which he claims to have no prior knowledge of) reveal decades worth of obsession with conspiracies, sympathy for the right-wing militia movement, and deeply held bigotry against blacks, Jews, and gays. - More info about the newsletters & Ron Paul’s response can be found over at Dvorak Uncensored I’m...
Discussing health care at the office
Alan: I guess you could always move to Australia.
Max: I'd go in a heartbeat if it wasn't so hard to get in.
Me: Well there's always Japan. Or France. Or any of the other 15 countries whose health care systems ranked better than ours.
Max: My highschool boyfriend lives in France.
Alan: Oh god...
Max: No, no. He's gay now.
Me: Perfect! He'll make a great roommate!
Max: Perhaps... in his spare time he's a clown. He uses a violin and a fish-
Me: TO DO WHAT!?
Max: Ohhhh it's hard to explain...
(i heart) anthony bourdain interview →
Probably the best interview I’ve ever read about anyone.
The AV Club interviews Anthony Bourdain
AVC: Have you eaten anything particularly disgusting in the last few episodes you've shot for No Reservations? Anything that's more disgusting than the still-beating heart of a cobra, say?
AB: Well, last season, the Namibian warthog experience was as bad as it's ever been.
AVC: Was that the anus that you ate?
AB: You know, pick a part. It was all equally full of sand and crap in every mouthful. And it just had this permeating odor of burning reflux.
Living In IKEA →
Mark Malkoff lives in an apartment in NYC. It needed to be fumigated. Having no friends in the area with large enough living quarters to accomodate a house guest and no desire to shell out cash to rent a hotel room, Malkoff decided to move into his local IKEA. The real shocker: IKEA knew about it from the start and thinks it’s great. He’s living there WITH THEIR PERMISSION and...

I don't know what's worse
The fact that SaraLiz and I are sitting at a coffee shop full of weirdos (thus making us weirdos as well?) or the fact that we’re so distracted by them that we’re gchatting across the table about them & then blogging about it… Or maybe it’s the fact that my only regret is not having brought a 3rd person to document our reactions in a series of photos.
Sara: OMG i guess this is where you go when you cant drink
me: dude it's a baby explosion
Sara: is this some kind of meeting behind us?
me: maybe they're fixin to play D&D
Sara: straight edge.
me: omg maybe
Sara: i need to stop staring
me: yeah I need to quit looking over at the people on the couch. I can totally hear them without looking.
Sara: i hate people who talk
me: do you think they hang out with him because he's different and they think it makes them cool to hang out with the "weird guy"?
Sara: that's a big idk... i hate people who talk like this. the way too heady shit
me: the ones who base their political views on high school government classes and popular comedians - those are the ones who make me gag
Sara: yes gag
me: seriously how do you go from politics to Buffy in one step? that's something only an 18 year old would do... COULD do
Sara: sooo scary - i'm glad i was quiet. didnt say the dumb shit that went through my head in high school.
Sara: O M G
me: omg the homeboy bringing up the rear is missing like all of the front toofs
Sara: i love how all of those boys have an ex-girlfriend
me: yeah I bet if you asked the girls they'd be like "omg ew he's the creepy guy who sits behind me in Biology!"
Sara: ICP TEESHIRT!!!!!
me: omg for real?
me: I don't want to look but I need to seeeeeee
Sara: we need to be more inconspicous
me: turn the webcam around! tape this shit!!!
me: I dunno if anyone else will think this shit is incredible
Sara: "my favorite file on my computer" he just said that
me: ANIME? REALLY!!!
Sara: THE FILE IS SO COMPLEX!!!!
me: I'm sure he has them ranked in order of how nerdy it is... "nerd halfie" "nerd boner" "MASSIVE NERDRECTION"
Sara: dude. this kid can switch topics faster than...insert amazing chaely andictote
me: faster than a grocery bagger on speed
Sara: chipmunk on sterioids
me: it's like everything ridiculous about high school losers all crammed into one conversation
Sara: and one person. this is worse than a FULL DAY of watching tila tequila marathon
me: this shit is killing my brain. I imagine this is what doing shrooms in public feels like.
Sara: wait. he just answered his phone. "good morning, how can i serve you?"
me: what!??!?!?! omg dude who just walked in with the guitar has a ponytail and a flame shirt... this is like some sort of bizarre movie
Sara: oh god. why does he have to recap the video they're watching... THEY JUST FUCKING SHOWED IT why???? why?????????? WHY????? my brain... hurts... so much... look at my face... wtf... who is this?
This week everyone has been posting lists of resolutions and goals for 2008. It’s all very insightful and inspiring, but instead I thought I would give everyone a list of people I really could do without ever seeing or hearing about in 2008 (or ever again for that matter). Alternately, I guess you could call it a list of people who could potentially ruin my year by annoying the hell out of...
You look like that one girl… Look at the world… see wuh...– SaraLiz, trying to describe Jasmine from Aladdin by singing a song from The Little Mermaid, which makes no sense but somehow I knew what she was talking about. Plus, she didn’t know the words so the analogy sort of lost its luster. I only wish I had a video of it so you could see her waving...
