Of course, I should have known better. If it was Dana, it would have been funnier.
I have beyond-reproach street cred. My mom told me so.
Oh, wait. I forgot about the Burning Man guy. He’s tres cool too.
I guess that makes me the only convict then. Whatever. I’ve been putting up with shitty clients all day. Now I’ve got to take random pokes about a blog that features Ben-fucking-Greenman? Had to be Curt then, because he’s that lazy.
What are you on about? You’re not the only criminal. You’re the only one who’s gotten caught.
Who said I’m a designer? That’s what I told you. But then there is this: I am the only criminal on this blog.
That wasn’t me, fek. And unless Steve Ignorant is writing for YM now, I call bullshit on someone’s claims of beyond-reproach street cred. You’re a designer, not the leader of the fucking Wobblies.
Good thing you do. I used the past tense. And I included ‘fucked’ to make you potentially look like more of a lothario than your Mom might otherwise think.
What? I work at a non-profit. And volunteer. And give to charity. None of YOU wanted to come to my Middle East cross-semitic bonding meet-up last night. That’s right Jello, *I* blow minds for a living.
Since we’re all about keeping it realer than thou, I’d like to point out I’m the only person on this blog who hasn’t fucked, worked for or publicly claimed friendship of someone in the New York Media/Publishing industry. So hold your GG Allin dribbled chin high while you work hard to not alienate [redacted],[redacted] or [redacted]. I.F. Stone is mighty proud that of your...
Musings on indie rock and bands that 99 and Krucoff almost certainly adore.
Wait, when he says ‘enter into the intellectual circles of the rest of the world’ does he mean women at NYU can’t drive now? That’s an interesting way of dealing with the congestion pricing issue.
Listen, you’ll all feel better about NYU Abu Dhabi if you drink the koolaid.
NYU in Abu Dhabi. Sure, banning Israelis is cool and all, but the gays? Yep, fuck you too. Go back to the Village.
Guess who said this: “My Oscar looks so shiny today! YAY! RING POP!”
White whine: Listen, I ordered a MEDIUM soy latte, I don’t care what the ticket says. (And also? That new NPR morning news program sucks donkeys.)
All you 22 yr old tumblr whores, lapping at the poorly imagined Randian maunderings of a bipolar whack job, there was a reason, back in the day, that we loved TMFTML (even if we can’t link properly).
Who emailed you this time? Anyway, if someone is being a supreme dick, it’s always me, right?
This is a good time to remind everyone that the YTuM is written by at least 5 people. Also, Canada needs writing lessons. How does shit like this get published?
Everyone at YM has someone they forbid me to talk about. It’s not always Sloane Crosley.
Who can’t make a fucking link in Tumblr?
Hey look, it’s 2004. (Just a little more fuel for your fire). Bonus excerpt: A step down from Denton’s cabal are blogs like TMFTML (The Minor Fall, the Major Lift), independently run by some guy sitting in a room.
Dude, get back to me on what [redacted] thinks about Whitney being your friend. And you could have bothered to point out how little Whitney thought of blogging when it got her a really shitty Voice article. Related: you two are a star-fucker match made in heaven. Yeah, don’t it figure? I hated Whitney like seven years ago.
Did someone just buy the WarGames 2 DVD? WFT?
Speaking of the apocalypse: in case you ever...
12:00 noon CDT 5 August 1988: Nuclear hostilities on a global scale begin as the U.S.S.R. launches a preemptive strike. Over 1,000 Soviet missiles—carrying 5,400 warheads—are launched as a counterforce strike against the U.S. and its NATO allies. Current population figures are: Rio Grande Valley—690,000; Travis County—550,000; Texas—16,800,000; the United...
Third would be Spiers friending me, but I wouldn’t dream of floating that possibility. I have family to think of.
What did I learn on Facebook today? Whitney Pastorek has a lot to learn about Pink Floyd, especially their fans… “I’ll know better than to be so cavalier with my opinon in the future. because if there’s anything I hate more than staying up until 4am to finish a blog post, it’s staying up until 4am to finish a blog post and have people call me an idiot/bad writer...
Well, some jurors were a little testy about their six-month service. That sound of wailing you hear is all 300 users of ReiserFS agonizing about how the jury was unfairly prejudiced against nerds. Either that, or they were pissed they couldn’t get done in time to go to ROLFcon.
Wow, it’s a banner week for the disenfranchised here in the good ol’ US of A.
Hey, let’s recall a more pleasant part of our recent history: insulting our followers! Today, I present someone who manufactures nostalgia for Teddy’s, a place closed before she moved here (someone help me: Teddy’s was a Guido coke den for its last ten years — when exactly was it cool?), and then takes a note from fucking Eater — an organization that sucks any dick...
Meet Daniel Pipes and his nifty plan for Muslims, which likely includes rail cars at some point. As the Times so transparently parrots for him in the sixth graf “It’s a battle that’s really just begun.” Fresh from his last battle railroading the professor at Barnard, maybe he will form a superhero duo with Horowitz, finding degenerates under every rock. Apparently he’s learned a...
Did you ever have reason to doubt NYPD are sociopaths?
We get in on the single serving site meme.
In Maryland for bro’s birthday. Family called me fat and said I look like shit. The beard isn’t popular either. Gift certificates for Nutrisystem and shaving kits are forthcoming. /livejournal
It could be my mood this afternoon, or wishful thinking, or the fact that I need a stronger eyeglass prescription, but when I saw this headline I could’ve sworn it read California Holds Off On Cop-Spaying Plan.
“Carelessness is not a crime.” Time to rethink that handgun ban.
It’s true. Incredibly enough (or not), out of the 50 people I’m following, YM was the first to come through with something, anything on Sean Bell. Just want to point out that some us went the more subtle route.
And who says I can’t be servicey?
This is fucking bullshit.
Dude, you own a tie?
Oh, I succumbed to Monster Facebook. Had to do it for work, meet some Arabs, etc. I made sure to go with the requisite “hey look at me, I’m drinking with a jacket and tie on, I’m in New York!” social networking look. How are you kids saying it, facial me?
Remember that book cover design talk in December 2006 with Milton Glaser, Chip Kidd, Dave Eggers and Michael Bierut that caused a big gender bender? Of course you don’t, but now you can watch the whole program and pause at the exact moment Glaser drops an ovary on the stage.
Damn Lilit, you go. First you get on NPR and then you bash Heeb on FishbowlNY. Padding your resumé to become weekend Jezebel editor?
That was obviously Dana, btw.
Hey David Karp, you can suck my dick and pay ME $25 for the privilege of doing so.
Um, and say what? I’m not going to listen to a fucking podcast with Gessen.
Gessen on Nextbook. 99, you wanna chime in here?
Taking the A Train to Jenin with architects of peace.
I’ve always wondered who was in Doree’s iPhone. Since when does Emily Gould outrank Will Leitch? He’s got more YA books to his credit than her, his essay collection is not materially different (in tone and style) from John Sellers (though it probably outsold John) and he’s a editing pretty successful blog, last I checked.
