The Times has an article about kids who believe they should be graded on how hard they try instead of what they actually produce in class. By this logic brain surgeons who left sponges in patients skulls shouldn’t be sued because they tried really hard. Or hedge fund managers who lost billions of dollars shouldn’t [...]
I recently came across your “Irish Whiskey Liqueur” in the Irish Whiskey section of a liquor store, and was moved by the sentiments of serious drinking and commitment to one’s alcohol expressed upon the label. When I opened the bottle and smelled its contents, I was confused by hints of vanilla and floral notes, [...]
Remember that time that The Internet threw a fit about their information being made available to advertisers on Facebook? Or that time that The Internet threw a fit about Google Chrome’s End User License Agreement?
I mean, both of these were more than a month ago, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t.

Take note: this is how cults get started. Silver Jews, a twangy indie rock band that was the toast of New York hipsters, recently announced their bowing out from the “scene.” So like the clan of kiffiyeh-clad Brooklynites, I too mourn the vacuum where clever, moving things were once croaked.

Joe Biden was like that popular, involved-in-everything (French club, track team, tax audit enthusiasts, class president — or maybe VICE president, HMMM?) guy who was still inexplicably nice to even the nerdiest of nerds.

Gen Y Cops stars a bleached-blonde Paul Rudd, who is clearly just paying the rent with this trash. I’m not sure which is funnier: [...]
Somewhere between the fluffy fun of Snoop Dogg and the unflinching introspection of Elliot Smith lays Jayz’s work. And it’s perfect.
When I listen to Jay-Z my mood changes. I intetailly listen to his albums for hours at a time during work or transit because its cathartic. As some of you may know I resigned [...]
Look at Classic Cage: unconventional and engrossing
Here’s a taste of his newest project:
A teacher (Cage) opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son’s elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions — some that have already occurred and others that are about to — that lead him to believe his family [...]
Your campy sense of irony will not save you this time MAC. Your use of some obscure Australian comedian who dresses up like an old lady in drag to hawk your iridescent “eye-shimmer” at me will not work!
Any lady that has slathered her lips in the $26 goop harbors a secret suspicion that the [...]
This was the week when The Internet won. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the internet.
