“We’re in a recession, and the White House is shipping balls around?”

18 December 2009

I know posting a clip from the Daily Show is pretty much just phoning it in, but this video is absolute gold:

“Fox News commentator” and “Republican Strategist” Noelle Nikpour does an amazing job of persistently digging herself into a deep, deep hole. Did you know that there are Twelve Days of Hanukkah? Shine on, you crazy diamond.

He’s a model, if you know what I mean

The new J.Crew men’s catalog arrived in the mail this weekend. Their fall schtick is “artists in their studios” modeling J.Crew. The cover of the catalog is Ryan McGinness, aka the King of Day-Glo, being worn by an ill-fitting white shirt.  As a premise it promised to at least be pleasurably awkward, so I flipped my catalog open. Only to be greeted, on page 26, by Vito Acconci.

I knew that he’d been doing architecture in recent years, but seriously– the guy who did Seed Bed is modeling in J.Crew? Do they know about that? The interview with him was maybe the best part:

J.Crew: IS THERE ANY ONE PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
Shoes. Because, wherever I am, I need to be sure I can get somewhere else.

J.Crew: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING WHILE YOU HAD YOUR PORTRAIT TAKEN FOR J.CREW?
I must have been saying to myself something like, “I’m not myself. But who am I then?”

The world in which we are living is now comprised of a new reality. Thank you for this, October J. Crew catalog.

Three points for the team

Rachel Maddow on Republican teabagging. No, it never gets old.

Oh my! Oh me! That lunchmeat’s bourgeoisie!

26 February 2009

While I may watch a lot of movies, especially during these wretched winter months, I don’t watch a lot of TV. A constant struggle of mine is wanting/trying to participate in popular culture while being horrified by a lot of it. Once in a while, though, I’ll find something that’s just off-kilter enough that it’s a complete delight. Such as this Hillshire Farm commercial for, uh, lunch meat:

I could go into an analysis of how this is fanfuckingtastic for some of the same reasons as musicals, but really, I just want to say, “Bang bang choo choo train! Eat lunch meat on the aeroplane!”

Months that start with “Feb”

1 February 2009

In honor of the beginning of February, my personal least favorite month of the year, here’s a short clip of something that shall not be named, in case the channel that it’s on attempts to hunt it down. I’ll just say it rhymes with Jelebrity Ceopardy (and features that roguish scoundrel Sean Connery).

ETA: Oh fuck, it did get taken down. Let’s blame February.
