King Dork: A Really, Really Funny Book
johncarney: I bought King Dork when Krucoff was pimping it out a year or two ago. I only made it through the first dozen or so pages before I left it in a bag that I lost in the Annex or the Orchard Bar or some such place that a Lewitinn was probably responsible for me attending. Anyway, I bought it again just before Christmas. I had intended to give it to a teenager I know as a gift. But I...
Dismemberment Plan - “Ice of Boston” ...
Help me out here. I’ve watched all of five minutes of one Jersey Shore episode and have read exactly zero words of “analysis” or commentary or what-have-you on the Internet so I’m sure this has been covered. Now tell me, how old is “The Situation” supposed to be? He’s like 38, right?

chrismohney: One colleague just convinced another to say “graveside bukkake” ten times fast, on video. To post or not to post? The speaker claims not to know what it means. Does that even matter anymore? Is that BlackBook’s contribution to The End of the 00s?
Introducing 31 Days, 31 Ideas
31days: Hi, my name is Daniel Sieradski. I’m a 30 year-old Brooklynite, an on-again, off-again observant Jew, and a progressive Jewish community activist. For over 10 years, I have been working as a web designer, digital strategist, and blogger within the Jewish community. In that time, I have worked for dozens of community based organizations on a freelance basis, as a full-time staff member...
The Evens - “All These Governors” ...
Speaking of patterns, here’s your triple-lindy for the day. brianvan: Though it won’t indicate that the L.E.S. “started” six years ago, it’s basically covering the change over the same territory… I moved out a month ago up to a quiet and semi-tasteful part of Kips Bay, probably where I belonged in the first place. Almost, but not quite, a two year stay. Won’t miss much.
matthewgallaway: “You probably hate those guys. I kind of hated them too, whenever I was not busy loving them. Isn’t that kind of the way we feel about all our friends?” —Katie Bakes on the Duke Lacrosse ‘Incident’ I’ve spent a fair amount of time on the Internet, some of it regrettable but mostly worthwhile, as I’m sure you have. Do we not sense patterns? Katie Bakes on...

It Takes a Pillage, Katie.
retrotort: rendit: No “Grey Ice Water”? “Trucker’s Atlas”? “Jesus Christ Was An Only Child”? Eh, we’ll still allow it. “A Life of Arctic Sounds”? I’d say “Bankrupt on Selling” is probably the most accurate Christmas sentiment. Well I was gonna go with All Night Diner but that’s really just a personal memory I associate with a Christmas dinner for one...
Disclosure: Beyond having some common friends, Salkin and I are at an impasse because of snipey blog comments I’ve written about his writing. I’ve attended three of his Festivus parties (he owns the topic). I enjoy mentioning and repeating this transgression. Should have pitched this to Formspring, Brian Van.

They are driven by pure greed and narrow profit-seeking for themselves. They always get their way, and they always will as long as you poor stupid bastards buy the line that when the government raises their taxes, it is taking something away from you. It is the alliance of the Neoliberal super-rich with the new lower middle class populists led by W. and now by Sarah Palin that produces clown...

The final nail in the YM coffin: “The Uprise of the Desire of Jews.”
Half Baked, with Nic Musolino: Eggnog →
Stay tuned for Zombie YM in 2010.
Oh, don’t lie, motherfucker. It’s been a blast. NO REGRETS. TEXAS FORVER.
It actually hasn’t been that much fun. But nice to see you’re reblogging in the opposite direction too.
followingym: had to get it in, now we’re done....
This Is How The YMBlr Ends.
Not with a whimper, or a bang, but a reblog. Everyone, it’s been fun.
Foster, we’ve talked about this before, stop reblogging yourself.
Back In The Prime, Before The Bylines.
fek: Until then, she’d known me as the person from Young Manhattanite who made all the dumb alpaca jokes with Andrew (which resulted in Doree’s alpaca acquisition). Ah, yes. The Alpaca Situation.

True Match →
Curious about the site’s matching algorithm, I set up my own profile. Because I already knew what a woman’s experience on Match was like, I posed as a male version of myself. I bumped my height up two inches and used a rather nebbishy-looking Facebook friend’s profile photo as my own. The resulting persona, SensitiveDude450, was a five-foot-nine-inch, “athletic and...
No But Seriously

She told HIM?
MAYBE I'M CONFUSED???
So, what’s everyone doing for New Year’s?
TV advertising used to work like this: you sat on your sofa while creatives were...– Douglas Haddow: Hail the rise of “loser-generated content” This is precisely what I don’t understand about the hundreds of talented people who make very creative entries for contests put forth by companies like Doritos and McDonald’s every year. You are doing advertising for them, with no more bait...

nycthe: “Smell that, readers. Stinky journalism.” I took a shower this morning and used my roommates soap that smells great, so I know its not me. I assume the joke’s been made a thousand times but “Ed Winter from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office”? Nothing fishy here.
ninety9: I was just making a snarky Ayn Rand joke/comment when I finally realized what it was that annoys me so much about anyone who even displays a micro-second of stiffening spine why I cast about of my many derisive comments about the entire Objectivist enterprise: I stopped defending Tolkien about eight minutes after I read it, back in 1982, over a series of long Saturday afternoons, while...
Well this explains why I don’t remember writing this, but hey, great song!
Speaking of yard displays, upon hearing that the Auschwitz sign was found, did anyone else think it would look good over Shotgun Jesus and Dead Santa?
