Anyone else tune into VH1 Classic’s Rush Hashanah? Just checking.

I Know You Like To Think Your Ship Don't Sink
Somewhere in the New York offices of the company formerly known as Lehman Brothers, there is a conference room in dire need of some plaster. This is likely not a priority for the top Lehman brass or the government or Barclay’s or whoever is now in charge of this sort of thing, but the plaster would be used to fill the numerous giant holes created when a prized six foot long scale model of a...

Live Blog of the Live Blog (recursions)
Here we are, at KatieBakes’. Fitting to her name, we’ve attended to that first. FEK can’t work his computer, Andrew is wearing a 1992 debate shirt, and the new commenting system sucks ass. Fortunately there’s some GM staff here to yell at about. Updates once we figure out the mechanics of commenting, and you know, the debate starts. 8:44: For invocation of...

Team YM Liveblogging Debate on Gawker Tonight
Apparently we’ll be liveblogging the debate over at Gawker tonight with others who are exponentially - and thankfully - more qualified. Not really sure how it’s gonna work but we’ve stocked up on supplies. UPDATE: Here’s where the action will be going down. The “crew” includes: Foster Kamer, Katie Baker, Eli Valley, Blogger 99 and possibly a father of 3 in...

Shofar Hero: Battering Ram
From The Jewish Channel:We interviewed Jewish celebrities ranging from Matisyahu to Ed Koch, plus editors at New York Magazine, Huffington Post, Radar, Esquire, and Gawker Media — in addition to up-and-coming comedians, stars, and more! Laugh out loud at the funny things they have to share about the High Holidays, from blowing shofar to confessing their sins. Four half-hour episodes are airing on...

Coming at you from a Joan Baez kind of place
While not as old as Peter Feld, here’s Eli Valley at a rally in the 1970s. Clearly, he’s now voting for Obama. (Note: Out of respect for Emily Gould, Elizabeth Spiers and countless others wronged for exaggerated reasons, the YM Tumblr remains “dark” until after Yom Kippur - whoever that person is.)
The YM Tumblr is temporarily going dark while we contemplate its “new direction” and relaunch. (Ha, sounds so dramatic!) In the meantime, check out the 92Y Blog and let us know if you’d like to join the YM trip to Mississippi to help rebuild homes for a long weekend in October.
Well *I* am willing to give Rex some credit for this. Choire too.
Listen, there’s nothing to be depressed about. We aim to cure you of your ailments: meet Dr. Greenthumb. - FEK
Oh wait, this is even better.
In case you weren’t feeling depressed yet today.
I enjoyed this post.
A long time ago The Boss promised to start Twittering if he hit 100 followers. He’s at 97. Like a child who needs to learn how to swim the hard way, can we get five or six people to just push him in the deep end? - FEK
Boss, this song’s for you: Moe, baby. Can we talk for a sec? We know working at New York magazine, kind of a nice gig to have, no? But when you steal their graphic, lube them up, regurgitate their faux-outrage, and finally, dedicate a few thousands words to the small, mostly insignificant revelation (and accompanying article) which ends in the sentence is simply to persist in the cowardly...
Emily Gould: “I know this is not going to make sense to anyone except the 10 dorks who follow blog politics closely, but tonight was kind of historical because I finally met and accepted the apologies of Andrew Krucoff, who has led a cabal of bloggers over at Young Manhattanite in being … let’s just say unsupportive of me, in ways that started out predictable and eventually just got...
So we get seven reblogs without a photo credit? If I slag Kottke, I’m an outcast, but stealing illustrations without attribution is kosher?
Only 9% of ladybloggers are under the age of 25. (Don’t trust any of them.) David Karp* will see about that. *BD;WH.
There Will Be Links To Technorati.
There is another thing which makes me sad and it is the state of the blogosphere because I clicked on the link and then I wished I hadn’t but it was too late because I had already clicked on the link but I promised to never click on a link from technorati again because it makes you sad that you clicked on a link from technorati because you do not want to be one of those people who clicks on...
Much of it flew like Jewperman right over my lil head, but this has caused me to feel a deep and passionate attraction toward Eli. This is 99, btw.
I’m In Like With You is Kongregate for dickbags - discuss.
Internet, why is it that you charge so much money for people to spend time with you in Europe? Is it that you do not like Americans?
Time to bust out that Fucking Jews tag again: this time, trouble in gan-eidn. It’s like The Warriors meets Munich, except in Munich there aren’t that many Chasids because the truth is Chasids are just a bunch of pious misogynist pussies. There, I said it.
Internet better be fan-fucking-tastic today, because I just paid 19 euros to hang out with him.
Hello Internet. How are you today?
I thought Krucoff didn’t dig Asian women, but maybe he makes an exception if they work for the Times.
So I guess because I was Friday Night’s Catcher I ended up at this thing with these people and saw someone had written something on the Gawker whiteboard about David Karp having a big dick. Hysterical! Anyway. That should’ve been the most important thing I saw but it wasn’t. That, my friends, was Julia Allison speaking with Malcom Gladwell. If that isn’t a Tipping Point, I...
Somewhere in an unsent Facebook message subject line… “Remember Blowing Me In Your Bedroom With Your Parents In The Next Room? I Believe You Were 16 Years Old At The Time.”
Well, I would say I have a strict “bro’s first, ho’s fist” policy but what’s the point? I am my own beard. [n+vagina]
AK, I thought you were saving your +1 for someone with a vagina? -Someone with a vagina.
Fuck I am so hungover I can’t feel my face here’s some unplugged Jay-Z which I woke up to this morning and now I am going to go drink some more now because that’s what uncharitable fucking heathens do on Sunday mornings we take an unnecessarily long trip to Brooklyn and get booze and eggs fucking eggs man they’re almost animals but they’re not and THAT’S THE...
A “little” present for Fek.
Blogger Math: Krucoff + Fek = Oxfeld
My little baby is all grownsed up: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARLING FEK! May 1000 virgins (or aging white rappers) throw themselves at your feet.

Travis Barker’s assistant killed in plane crash: “I’m sad this morning to have to report the loss of one of our own.”
Goodbye Alex Balk.
Well, Sac definitely has the login now. Maybe we’ll finally drop a few flies. - Gene Gene The Dancing Machine
