The Brits have fashion figured →
If you live south of the Mason-Dixon line it would be inexcusable for you to go all summer without wearing this.
You guys, Up All Night is officially entering “really great show” territory and I highly suggest you take some time this weekend to watch it.
Anchorman 2 is maybe not the best idea, guys.
Think about this. I know it’s exciting, the idea of Ron and the gang coming back. It feels like getting back together with all your best friends from high school for a night out. It seems like a great idea! That is, until you get there and two of them have to be home early because they have kids, one’s a recovered alcoholic, and you forgot how annoying Joe actually was. It’s just not the same,...
I Never Stood A Chance
This dress is $35. Now that I’ve discovered http://us.dorothyperkins.com I’m basically done for.
Why I Love Facebook, or Why The Internet Shouldn't...
All websites, everywhere, should be only accessible through Facebook. In order to comment on a message board or website, you should have to offer up your photo, full name, and location. This is because, frankly, you shouldn’t say anything online you wouldn’t say loudly in a room full of people. Anonymity is dangerous, because it removes all accountability. Only in the past 20 years or...
What the hell is wrong with people? →
I'd like to make a quick point.
“It’s a private club, and I don’t think they’re really concerned about how others perceive them,” he said. “Their ratings will not rise and fall based on how people view this particular topic. Their ratings will rise and fall if Tiger Woods is at the top of his game, if Tiger and Phil Mickelson andRory McIlroy or some combination of them happen to be in the mix on the final day of the...
If I could go back and do prom again right now, I would: Wear one of these dresses: (with some comfortable, nude colored pumps because prom shoes are THE WORST SHOES.) Curl my own hair and put it up in a bun (prom hair, WHO NEEDS IT?) I would dance, a lot. And I would go by myself. Or, at least, I definitely wouldn’t take Matt as my date, because he definitely has a crush on his...

Why Harold? Why?
Dear friends and colleagues, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the completely deserving players who’ve been placed on Harold and Lloyd teams today. Go forth and be merry! As for the rest of you, who are possibly (likely) still licking your wounds from what seemed a harrowing and cut-throat audition process, I have one question: Why? Why is this so important? I didn’t get to...
But the problem wasn’t that Limbaugh confused the issue. His real transgression was that he had given away the GOP game, crystallizing an issue that had been in full view for weeks. That’s why his behavior resonated with and angered so many Americans who otherwise might have tuned out his rant as just another sloppy helping of his aging shtick. It’s precisely because there is a Republican war on...
Teenagers Are Terrible People
Teenagers. They’re terrible. Trust me. If you don’t remember being a teenager, or aren’t lucky enough to know any teenagers, let me give you a little bit of insight into teenagers. I was not a “typical” teenager in that I considered myself “straight-edge” - meaning I didn’t drink, do drugs, or have sex. I did this mostly because for most of high...
I know I’ve spent a lot of time writing about the Trayvon Martin case. But this is an especially good read. Especially the last paragraph: http://www.salon.com/2012/03/27/the_trayvon_martin_had_it_coming_narrative/
Exactly None of You Are Carrie Bradshaw
In response to this, here are a few things about New York you should understand before you pack up that one pair of Jimmy Choo’s you bought with a credit card and start looking for a pre-war 1-bedroom on the Upper East Side. 1. You have to have a job. This goes for wherever you live, but it is especially true in New York. Even Donald Trump’s kids have jobs, and not as sex columnists who...
Another post about Trayvon Martin
According to the Miami Herald, Miami-Dade Schools Police reported finding a bag with marijuana residue and a ‘marijuana pipe’ in the 17-year-old’s possession. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2120504/Trayvon-Martin-case-He-suspended-school-having-burglary-tool.html#ixzz1qJmkEYV5 A 17 year old with weed!?! No way! Note: I’m directly related to people who’ve been...
Summer Sandal Auditions: Cancelled
Nevermind. Turns out Aerosole never stopped making the greatest sandal I’ve ever owned. They just stopped like, advertising them. Notice how they are still back ordered in spite of this. That is because they are super comfortable and go with everything. BUY THEM.
3 Reasons The Hunger Games Is Not Twilight
Twilight is stupid. It just is. I’m sorry. Yes, I saw the first two movies. The dialogue was so bad I laughed out loud in the theater. The Hunger Games is not Twilight. Bella is no Katniss. Katniss would literally eat Bella for breakfast. From the beginning of the first installment of Twilight, Bella is a whiny, self-absorbed ass hat who for some reason thinks no one at her new school likes...
George Zimmerman "can't stop crying", but I still... →
This isn’t the latest chic political movement. It’s a stark reminder that no matter how high their GPAs are, how many degrees they get, how many plans they have, they still fit shooter George Zimmerman’s definition of the word “suspicious.” Howard students are familiar with lynchings, too. Their history professors make them look at old photos of lynchings from some of darkest times in America’s...
If you feel like ruining your life right now...
listen to the Trayvon Martin 911 tapes where you can hear what is clearly a 17 year old kid screaming for his life in the background. http://www.clickorlando.com/news/GRAPHIC-Trayvon-Martin-911-calls-released/-/1637132/9450044/-/6m827cz/-/index.html Then remember that both his killer and the police insist that that’s a 28 year old man screaming. And that said killer is still walking the...

Let’s make one thing clear: America is neither post-racial nor post-sexist. People are just tired of talking about those things. They think that because they know what racism/sexism are, and that they are bad, that they are over. They want to talk about something new, what happens next. They are sick of this same old conversation, and unwilling to conduct the kind of self-examination those...
I Think I'm a New Yorker Now
Thought Catalog writer Jackie Berg has a theory: “It happens when your outstretched hand on the promenade can trace the entire skyline with memories. Underneath your pointer is that street where you felt your heart shatter, but only because thousands of hearts trudged onto shore from that street and into tenements to build the life you complain about. You connect the dots.” No,...

Summer Sandal Auditions
Sandals are my white whale. No one can seem to figure out how to make a comfortable one that also looks nice, which to me is the very core of what a sandal ought to be. But, whoever thought for whatever reason it would be a cute idea to turn a flip flop into a high heel should be poisoned. The last pair of sandals I owned were made by Aerosole. They were perfect. Cute. Comfy. Stylish. I wore them...
Kids In Public: Stop It.
“But they can’t stay home until they learn not to scream and poop in their pants. Sometimes they have to travel for family reasons, and frankly, they’re entitled to for recreational ones” http://www.salon.com/2012/03/12/when_a_flight_becomes_pre_schoolers_gone_wild/ Oh, yes they can, and no, they aren’t. Here’s a few things kids under the age of 7 or 8 really just...
Words I Hate and Will Hate You For Using
1. Amazing 2. Picks 3. -prov as a suffix 4. lol.
The borderline personality is not able to integrate the good and bad images of both self and others, so that people who suffer from borderline personality disorder have a bad representation which dominates the good representation. This makes them experience love and sexuality in perverse and violent qualities which they cannot integrate with the tender, intimate side of relationships. ...
You said it, lady.
When you give random bureaucrats the power to decide who deserves health care and who’s an unworthy slut, they’re bound to get it wrong sometimes. But who cares, as long as all the whores get what they so obviously deserve, right? …Remember that as the contraception “debate” rages on (the abortion “debate,” too). It’s never religious liberty they’re talking about. It’s women. It’s you. ...
Ben & Jerry's
Dear Ben and Jerrys, Um, what the hell? I now weigh 400 pounds. Why are you still making ice cream?!? What the fuck? I’ve been a customer of theirs for ten years, during which time I’ve made a pint of this otherwise delicious ice cream part of my nightly bedtime ritual. What kind of horrible company would continue to manufacture and sell delicious ice cream, when I can’t even...
Stop Doing Things You Don't Want To Do
Sometimes there are things we don’t want to do, but we do them anyway. Some of these things are just necessary evils: flossing, exercising, laundry, etc. You should definitely still do those things because otherwise all your teeth will fall out and you will be fat and smelly. But then there are things that we don’t want to do, but that also don’t offer us an obvious benefit. I...
R.I.P, I Guess
Can you understand how this has been difficult for her to get caught up in that? As difficult as it probably was for her, it’s been difficult for me as well, especially to hear her hurl an accusation of racism at me, when my motivation is absolutely pure and is driven by a desire for this country to move beyond its horrid racist past. Do you agree that the edited video took things out of...
