Pilgrim's Progress Report: Week Two
choire: To be honest, I’m finding Tumblr a little confusing. Everyone has these cute site names and no one has an email address and I don’t really know which of you are in high school and which are 45 years old. (Though I know which of you have babies and/or are alcoholics, because parents and alcoholics talk about their obsessions equally frequently.) Still, so far, any confusion is well...
nerdshares: jakec: generic1: nerdshares: there are many things that could be (and have been) said about John Carney’s “Annual Guide to Holiday Romance [For Dudes]” but I don’t have as much time as I’d like. So, in bullet form: Carney’s list is heavily ironic; the “author” (or authorial voice) is clearly meant to be a DudeBro douche of the highest order. Some people, not always women,...
anastasiafriscia: I quit my hostessing job yesterday. Looking for something better this week. Also yesterday, I got hired to do bloggy assistant stuff for Rex. I’m working on the End of the Year List of Lists right now, so if you’ve got any suggestions email me. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a fresh, ferocious wave knocking down a door. Keep the dream alive or risk being washed...
ryanbrown: elspethjane: youngmanhattanite: kenyatta: Post moving lull. There are 12 memes in this photo. Can you name them all? Bwahahahahahaha. Probably the only funny thing I’ve read from youngmanhattanite. damn. Kinda sucks we fucked up a perfectly good streak.
Video: The aforementioned forthcoming Keith Gessen video. Read a write-up of the evening by Paolo of NYC The Blog.

perpetua: If you are anything like me, your answer is something along the lines of “ME! ME! I DO! I DO!!!” “Fuck me? Why, why fuck me? Fuck me? Why fuck me you little asshole, why?”
doree: After nearly two (!) years using Tumblr, I’ve updated my theme to Manasto’s Other News. And a real photo, of me! Not my dog! Since Doree has always been our Tumblr muse, we’ve followed suit and installed the same theme. (Hey, notes and tags!) And has it really been that long? My god, it has.

Glenn Greenwald, not a fan of Jon Meacham: Jon Meacham tells a funny, original joke: liberals react to his column urging Cheney to run by “spitting out their lattes” http://tr.im/G5S5 In the dictionary under “Desperately Trolling for Traffic” there should be a link to Jon Meacham’s column urging Cheney to run for President Like many things, this would deeply...
fek: Today’s one of those days I would like to answer every question like this. Or better yet, have Marky Mark answer every question for me like this. He would also say hello to your mother for me. Sorry dude. Truly the worst weekend to be blogging for a paycheck. There is no boat big enough for what you have to do. Like getting stuck on latrine duty after the big guy pulls a seven-six-two...
Tonight in Baltimore, Rocket to Venus is where you’ll find at least 10% of YM. Brussel sprouts are the signature dish, ZZ Top and the Descendents are on the Jukebox Top 15. You know what they say, you can’t go back.

Interesting profile of “MIA fiancee/Seagram’s scion/ex-punk kid/climate change activist” via Michael Calderone.
A great film has been made about a father and son who embark on an arduous journey of self-discovery, filial bonding and profound moral reckoning, set against a grim backdrop of post-apocalyptic misery. It’s called “District 9,” and it will be available on DVD in a few weeks.—Ann Hornaday
The book’s free of assholes up until this point. Why spoil that?

JEWS AND OSTRICH FEATHERS
I’ve wanted to get this book for several months, and maybe I’ll finally splurge now that amazon’s offering a bigger discount than 5% (cue feather-loving cheap Jew jokes). Also, it just got selected as a finalist for a $100,000 prize, making it quite possibly the most important history of Jews and ostriches of our time.
eastofeden: 1) Don’t tell a stranger anything you wouldn’t tell a cop. 2) Don’t do anything with a stranger you wouldn’t do with a cop. 3) A stranger is anyone, no matter how friendly, that you don’t know very much about.. Beware of spies. Beware of ‘perfect imitations.’ Make sure you really know the people you associate with… 4) Be careful with people who have been busted recently… The...
Don't Look Behind the Curtain
bmichael: Are you the author of the Gawker post, the author of the katiebakes Tumblr log, Phyllis Nefler, and a Young Manhattanite contributor? Because that seems like a lot of Noms de Internets. Anyway—I was just thinking of how hilarious this Altarcations was. A + +. And let’s not forget this either.
