lickystickypickyme: Borgomani showed me this. She will flip that I posted it. I take the risk of being killed. Enjoy knowing it cost lives to have it up here. Be careful. Very addictive. And ultimately maddening.
The New Yorker finds Kid Rock 'endearingly brash'...
hman: TERMINAL 5 610 W. 56th St. (212-582-6600)—Sept. 2: Michigan’s genre-blurring Kid Rock continues to turn out his endearingly brash blend of hip-hop-infused rock. In recent years, he’s put the emphasis on the latter genre, with a dash of country thrown in. This rare club show is a benefit for the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, a Bronx-based nonprofit devoted to promoting...
Dyatlov Pass Accident →
bestofwikipedia: The Dyatlov Pass incident refers to an event that resulted in the deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains. The mysterious circumstances and subsequent investigations of the hikers’ deaths have inspired much speculation. Investigations of the deaths suggest that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot in heavy snow; while the corpses show...

Dominick Dunne passed away last night. →
wooliebear: rosasparks: I will miss him. His column in Vanity Fair was always interesting and fun. He always had a sadness to him that was incredibly touching. I was thinking about him today with the passing of Kennedy. Oh no! Who will explain the foibles of the ultra-rich to us now?

Tumblarity is from hell.
It’s official, I cannot find any direct correlation between my behavior and my erratic Tumblarity number. The more followers I get and the better people seem to like me, the more the number dips and dives. I suspect it’s all relative, and my performance is weighed against everyone else’s somehow, but gah! It just taunts you with discrete whimsy. I’m going to pretend not to...
hman: How could this be? I don’t use the phrase in every day conversation, nor do I think I’ve ever used it in print. But I always thought it was “deep-seeded” - like a seed, ie. thought, is planted deep in your mind. “Deep-seated” makes no sense to me. This source sez, “Both Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary and the OED2 (Complete) agree that the correct term is “deep-seated”,...

Down the rabbit hole.
Let me see if I have this straight. There is now a website that posts publicist lies that refute gossip rag lies about celebrities who lie/fuck each other silly/get high? I’m pretty sure this is all Perez Hilton’s fault somehow.
What I ate today, in order of consumption: fresh blueberry, strawberry, pineapple and banana smoothie honey nut cheerios pulled chicken, rice, baked beans, yellow tomato salsa and zucchini sushi: salmon, fluke & sea bass; lightly fried asparagus with green tea salt; age dashi tofu; 2 oxycontin; 2 Dewars on the rocks fin.
Watch it jiggle.
I know this isn’t current anymore (and apparently Choire lives in the skinny district) but walking through Port Authority this morning with a multitude of trendy “Ralph Kramdens” loping their way around me gave me the desire to punch the NYTimes in the face. Being pudgy isn’t a trend, it’s a way of life for most people. Seeing otherwise adorable uptown boys walking by...

Scalia: Gay rights champion?
This struck me as intriguing: But Olson sees his position as perfectly logical and consistent with his anti-affirmative action positions: He believes that California’s Prop 8 represents governmental-mandated discrimination. And he intends to use Justice Antonin Scalia’s blistering dissent in Lawrence v. Texas as an argument for overturning the ban. Scalia acknowledged in his dissent that the...
Um, what the hail?
Leaving Port Authority on the bus last night (yes, I live across that river) we heard a volley of rocks hitting the top of the bus and realized it was hail, of all things. I can’t find any reports of hail from last night’s storm, anyone else experience this?
Elizabeth Spiers decided to follow my tumblr today, and I can’t even brag about it because none of my friends would understand why that’s cool. Stupid friends, with their offline lives. Anyway, I’ve been a big fan for quite a while, so it’s still pretty cool.

(via rodtownsend) Heh. I saw these two adorably tacky boys at the harbor on Sunday, taking lots of pictures of themselves. Related: I don’t attend Circuit events, even when they are occurring steps away from where I am staying for the weekend. I am the Calendar Editor for an international Circuit magazine. Funny!
peterfeld: Has “too soon?” ever been used in reference to a funny joke? This one works for me: “The earliest recorded instance (in the A.D.) occurred in 453, several minutes after Attila the Hun choked to death during a celebratory feast. In a poor attempt to lighten the mood, Jeffery the Hun shouted out “I’ll have what he’s having!” Delivering the “too soon” was Margaret the...
