I probably shouldn’t have posted that last thing.– Me, right after I posted that last thing.
So What Did You Do Today?
Here’s some free advice: When you tell yourself not to say something, don’t say it. On Friday I woke up feeling sick but I had too much work to do to stay home so I headed into the office. After about 10 minutes at my desk something, actually everything, felt very wrong. I ran to the bathroom and…how do I say this gently…I got rid of everything and no I didn’t throw...

slackmistress: …four homeless men, camped out under an awning, trying to keep out of the rain. They were all huddled around something, and as I got out of the car I spotted a blocky pit bull head at the center of the circle. I was worried the dog may be hurt, but I was too chicken to go over and ask. As I did…

betheboy: likeaphoenixignition: porcelain-queen: To say that this is offensive is an under statement, how dare they turn one of most influential venues in the world into a poncey overpriced designer clothes shop. CBGBs grew into a sacred cow. It NEEDED to be slaughtered. … The original poster responded with a very thoughtful reply which you can see in the notes. Thanks for...
This is how the CBGB stands now
likeaphoenixignition: porcelain-queen: To say that this is offensive is an under statement, how dare they turn one of most influential venues in the world into a poncey overpriced designer clothes shop. CBGBs grew into a sacred cow. It NEEDED to be slaughtered. Most of the people lamenting the loss of the place would never set foot in it, these people don’t know shit. If you are...

From my proper blog: A few words on something very near and dear to me.
What are we going to do between the Super Bowl and the start of baseball?– My wife, echoing the worry I have felt every year of my life.
WHAT IF WEDNESDAY*
slackmistress: WHAT IF: Gwyneth Paltrow was a 38-year Andy Kaufman-type hoax to create the most divorced-from-reality human being on the planet? What if she’s actually a down-to-earth housewife from Illinois who has dirty fingernails, a car littered with Big Mac wrappers and a penchant for playing the Powerball? *This isn’t actually a thing. I mean, it’s a thing in that I just wrote it, but...
State of Affairs
I don’t know what this says about me or the Internet but recently all of the cliched male fantasies my brain used to conjure up have been replaced with fantasies of my wife and other funny women making jokes on Twitter. Sometimes I’ll be driving home from the office earlier than usual and I imagine walking in on them all on the couch, with their laptops open and Real Housewives on TV....
My System For Gambling
On February 14, 2010 I was in Las Vegas pledging my devotion to wife. While I was there I also pledged $10 worth of devotion to the New York Jets in the form of a 12 to 1 wager on the Jets to win it the Super Bowl in February 2011. When I got home from Las Vegas I still had a wife but I had lost my wager ticket. Rather than get annoyed at myself for losing the ticket, I told myself that I’d...
Fun Size Slackmistress: Smokey & The Best Show. →
slackmistress: The other night, Will & I were watching Smokey & the Bandit with some other people on Twitter*. As you do. (Or we do) I wondered why there hasn’t been a Smokey & the Bandit reboot. Which led to casting via Twitter. As you do. (Or we do.) Of course, most of the leads are connected to the Best… This is going to be great.

A Drinking Story: How I Made My Drink of Choice →
drinkingstory: My favorite drink was a Manhattan and while I won’t be having one tonight you can make one just like I used to make. Here’s what you’ll need: 3 oz of rye whiskey or bourbon 1/2 oz sweet vermouth 1/4 oz dry vermouth 2-3 dashes of bitters maraschino or brandy soaked cherry for… The secret ingredient is secrecy.
Five Thoughts: ...on True Grit →
samirmathur: 1. Nice to see that the bear from the It Still Moves cover is still getting work, albeit this time as a jacket. That was a weird scene, wasn’t it? The kind of thing that you expect from a Coen Brothers film. 2. A lot of people seem to disagree about the final, “25 Years Later…” scene. I thought…
Jen Kirkman - comedian: Vampire News →
jenkirkman: I know you kids like that Twilight stuff so I thought I’d stay relevant and re-post some vampire news. After retreating from the Washington fray after getting a new heart pump in July, former vice president Dick Cheney is resuming something of his normal routine: hunting, socializing, and… Jen Kirkman is awesome.

slackmistress: How I Met Your Mother is one of the last few traditional sitcoms I watch. While I find the main character tiresome, I think they’ve done a great job of building characters we care about and situations that we can both relate to and laugh at. It’s not cutting edge, but there are more than a few…
