The Five Stages of Lady Gaga
saafz: Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Let Gaga Be Great 1. Denial- This isn’t happening. She’s not real. “Just Dance” has to be a forgery. She has to be sampling. Oh, I know, this is a cover. No? It’s all her? She writes her own songs? Plays the piano? Actually sings? I refuse to believe this. Believing this would mean believing some girl in her early twenties isn’t your run-of-the-mill...

I have no idea what firmware is (bad nerd!), but I couldn’t help but notice that our huge law firm has been very busy fighting malware recently, deploying new computers to desks with a speed and frequency that is unheard of usually. Are the computers finally making their move? Is this...

The hospital followed me to the local sushi joint...
An 88 year old man passed out tonight after my visit with Jeff during a family meal after getting some tests here at Sloan Kettering, and now this place is swarming with EMS and police. The amazing thing is that this doesn’t faze me at all. It feels normal. Eating raw fish and watching triage should not feel normal. I can’t wait until this doesn’t feel normal again.
ohrohin: I like bloggers who write something knowing full well that they may be wrong, but the thrill is in that risk of being outlandish and later being proved wrong. I mean all writing regardless of genre should be steeped in some risk. It’s also why I want to like EW.com’s bloggers, but they’re just so sterile. Blogging used to be dangerous. Gawker used to be dangerous. Hip Hop used to be...

misterhippity: You’ll have to forgive me for being somewhat skeptical when I hear about “old, pre-internet business models.” I lived through the dot-com bubble 10 years ago when people talked like that. Then we all found out that those “old business models” never really changed after all. The web was just a new medium for the old models. That’s how I view the current situation.” I believe...

The Independant reviews The Fame Monster.
charitini: missworld: fuckyeahladygaga: Lady Gaga is the out-of-the-blue planetary pop phenomenon of 2009. At the age of 23, Stefani Germanotta, the funny-looking girl from Yonkers, has established herself as a self-created autonomous star, an avatar of avant-garde freako fashion and the queen of state-of-the-art electronic dance-pop. And, given that she writes or co-writes her material...

sistermarymartha: yosamanthrax: I’m going to meet Elvira this weekend. I’ve met her. I spent not last Halloween, but the Halloween before with her- hanging out, drinking entirely too much champagne. She’s teeny, very pretty, and very sweet. So jealous.

c-newt: Thanks to my friend Kass for pointing this out to me. The amendment, approved by the Texas Legislature and overwhelmingly ratified by Texas voters, declares that “marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.” But the trouble-making phrase, as Radnofsky sees it, is Subsection B, which declares: This state or a political subdivision of this state may...
