We don’t enjoy taking sides because THAT’S NOT WHAT WE DO but when one guys says “Someone dropkick this asshole” and the other retaliates by critiquing his design skills, you can’t help but be Team Someone Dropkick This Asshole.
I wish I was friends with the Indian in Body Double. That’s it.
Feeling a little warm, are you? Here’s one more from the Mountain Goats. Hard to resist this live version of “Going to Queens” since the audio is so good. [Previously: MGs “Going To…” Showdown. Three and a half years later and I still have to apologize for saying “even Lindsay” because that sounds condescending which wasn’t my intention.]
Krucoff’s Field Trip this October? Bloghaüs in Bermuda.
Well this sucks. The same friend who sent me the Larry King Drunk Clip (which is very much real and look, we’re over $25 for charity!) sends me an update on another classic radio recording that was kicked around Baltimore basements. Here’s an expletive-filled rant by Oriole manager Earl Weaver that’s just about the most awesome thing you’ll ever hear… until you read...
Orange you glad … oh, forget it.
jewschool.com The Firm’s web proxy could not contact the web server in the URL above. This can happen when the web server is down, too busy, or is unreachable on the Internet. Try the server again later. If you receive this message for many URLs, please contact your local helpdesk to report the problem. Revenge of The Boss, or akin to 99’s content whitewash? You be the judge.
But daddy, in the old days I’d send you the Jschool stuff and you’d post it here yourself! Is this any different? And is this our first fight? That’s it, you’re an asshole, I’m starting my own blog.
Lodwick’s video is a subtle commentary on Keith Gessen. I’m sure Leon loved the effort.
Q: What do you call two elephants floating down a river? A: Swimming trunks.
EV, you’re giving us Jewschool scraps?? Fuck dude, post that shit here FIRST.
Okay, this is funny.
Israel in a nutshell.
It’s not easy being green.
Boss, you really gonna give that money to Larry King’s ticker? I could think of so many better uses for it.
Today’s guest blogger is just a little more blazed than usual but would nevertheless like to give OLF the friendly advice that it’s probably best to provide some content prior to sitting back and relaxing. … Upon further reflection, actually, that may not be true.
Our latest follower. I can’t tell if this is like watching a golden child or one of these being born. Time will tell. But be warned, sir: this neighborhood is run by a big-dicked* sunuvabitch. He won’t censor you, but look out for the hounds. *We hear.
Today’s guest blogger is taking a nap.
OK, word is out. Today’s secret guest blogger was Peter Frampton.
Bloghaüs + Beast. Over email, Rex coins the term “Lockness Monster.” There it is, folks. My summer blogging is over.
The Gentile guest-blogger is a turtle without the shell.
Larry King Drunk Tape. Go click on that 1000 times. I’m not getting paid for it. Instead I’ve requested any pageview payout be donated to the Larry King Cardiac Foundation. For real.
A new follower. I guess my plus/minus is back to zero.
The state of Delaware ensconsed in a tattered flag is tearjerking and all, but I would have pegged things to other educational outings. Can’t stop the bleeding!
Krucoff called me in to “Gentile shit up” around here, as things were getting a little too Jewey on YM. So here’s something from the JTS wire: “Sukkot Coordinator — Interested in coordinating Sukkot Yom Tov and Shabbat meals? Student Life seeks a Sukkot Coordinator to handle logistical aspects of the Sukkot Yom Tov and Shabbat meals including (but not limited to)...
Right about now, Charles Bock is really glad his interview ran over at Radar.
Growing up in the DC area, the nation’s field trip capital, we probably took some things for granted. LIKE FREEDOM. What? Sorry, wrong post. No, what I mean is that our schools had easy access artillery at their disposal to trick us into happily marching through battlefields of learning. With future PSATs in mind, they could stick a 5th grade class in a mullet-proof bus and in a little over...

And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings Bear you on the Rex of dawn Make you to shine like the sun And hold you in the palm of his hand
Did someone say FIELD TRIP? Spooky. I have something for that. (Note: if my miscalculations are incorrect, there are TWO new guest bloggers here today. I believe one is Jewish and the other is not. Don’t worry, they’ve never met.)
Talk about giving up the penis. Good lord.
We already lost a follower today! Guest Blogger: we give bonuses for that shit! Keep moving!
My startup brings all the girls to the blog, And their like It’s better than yours, Damn right It’s better than yours, I can teach you, But I have to charge Even though it has yet to exist.
Down by the share where the bloggers all go back to my home I dare not go for if I do my Krucoff will say Have you ever seen a sap? Kissing a JAP? Down by the share! Down by the share where the bloggers all go..
I once took a dump in a Hot Topic dressing room; I would make a GG Allin joke here but I’m choosing not to - isn’t that punk?
Rex kissed a girl and he liked it.
Class field trip: we’re going to Hot Topic to find the Ghost of Krucoff Future (the joke is that your children will shop here and you can do nothing about it).
All YM bloggers secretly get tested for Tay-Sachs twice a month.
Great, I’m gonna go take a dump. There better be some “light” up in here when I get back.
The night is always darkest before the dawn.
I thought all YM bloggers are secret guests.
You lead with that? TUMBLRFAIL.
YM is about to get a secret guest-blogger. Stay tuned.
From a tipster (yeah, we have some regulars): John King of Spent = doppleganger / indie rock precursor to Ezra from Vampire Weekend? [Previously: Spent - “Landscaper”]
Nick Douglas’s new job involves trying to cash in on the whole Jake and Amir thing? Don’t you know? One of you has to be ethnic. Oh, also: funny. It helps.
We are a lost generation, desperately clinging to anything that feels real, but too afraid to become it ourselves. We are a defeated generation, resigned to the hypocrisy of those before us, who once sang songs of rebellion and now sell them back to us. We are the last generation, a culmination of all previous things, destroyed by the vapidity that surrounds us. The hipster represents the end of...
Isn’t Adbusters putting hipsterism on blast akin to China calling out Nazi Germany for a lack of follow-through (i.e. a few years too late)?
i was on a flight recently and i was sitting next to a very professional...– Moby [via]
I’ll just get this one out of my system now too: Moz in Israel. Denton jokes ensue, predictably, even if it’s a lazy comparison (omg, they are both British!) but it’s not like Morrissey ever spent time on a kibbutz.
