I like this.
Dennis Hopper is trying to distract us from the matter at hand. Next thing you know Angelica Huston will trip over a rock in Ireland and break a hip. It’s all connected…
“RE: Polanski. He admitted to sex with a 13 year old. She said it was non-consensual. What is the question? His art is too great?” Zizek!
I hate it when people say "I'm not married to X".
frangry: Such as: I’m not married to the color of that font. Really asshole? I didn’t think you were. Just say you don’t like it. Commitment-phobe much? (I bet you also hate it when people say “X much?”)
Talk about timing, I posted that pic of my sister and minutes later she sends me this article (North County News!) about her Mommy Athlete team. Her end quote:“I love pizza,” Borell said. “I could eat pizza every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I’m still gonna eat it.”
Here ya go, hipsters. Halloween costume idea: Roman Polanksi and 13-year old girl.
ninety9: 1. Kevin Smith 2. Luc Besson 3. […] I agree, we should film people not supporting Polanski. If there was a camera crew filming me, you’d all see me typing, sipping some afternoon coffee, and, most importantly, NOT SUPPORTING POLANSKI. So, uh, add my name to that list, 99.
Anyone want to take Introduction to Hebrew with me? This should up my annoying Jew factor.

Apple Genius Bar + actual bar serving alcohol = $$$.
Michael Wolff’s Newser: making Shit Sandwiches and even failing at that.
I’ve been trying to work the old “Liquor? I hardly even knew her.” around the Polanski thing. Not working. Help?
Roller derby empowers me. As a guy.
Next up: I WENT THROUGH THE RAPE TUNNEL AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS SHITTY T-SHIRT (AND 50K HITS).
Replaced “painted” with “Tumbled” and well, basically, yes.

Gold star for Kyle Munzenrieder.
I'm not trying to be controversial,
skybarn: but Chinatown is a little slowish and overrated. Also, it raped the noir genre of the ’40s. Also, its director is a child rapist. Wrong about everything except for the raping a 13-year old girl part. By the way, I’m working that phrase into as many conversations as possible, as in: “Well, it’s not like I drugged and raped a 13-year old girl or anything, get over it...
I'm getting the vibe that some people are just...
molls: The amount of times I’ve heard the name “Daniel Johnston” in the past week is srsly implying that one person wrote about him and then everyone ran off to his Wikipedia entry, put “The Devil and Daniel Johnston” on their Netflix queue and are now desperately trying to compensate for being more or less clueless. Just saaaaaaaayin’. Who’s Daniel Johnston? Is he the retarded kid...
Go get (consensually) fucked, Boss. Andrew “Skinny Bitch” Krucoff’s diet tips, everyone. If you get taken to Sammy’s and schmaltzed in your sleep, I didn’t do it. But if you get shot with a BB gun, I probably did.

Dens, do you still have my pellet gun?
ninety9: So Netflix On Demand finally has Miller’s Crossing. I intend to become the mayor of Miller’s Crossing. Overrated. I’m referring to 99. Miller’s Crossing is awesome.
The Costs of Becoming a Journalist →
negevrockcity: According to the British Cabinet Office, journalists born since 1970 predominantly come from middle class to upper middle class backgrounds. And Journalism ranks third in the list of the most socially exclusive professions, just behind doctors and lawyers. This quote embodies everything that is wrong with England. /Weisenthal-bait
mikehudack: I’m at Cafe Select (212 Lafayette St, at Kenmare, New York). http://bit.ly/16Vshz I’m standing right behind you.
Well, sometime before this, I guess. But cool = “cool.” Should’ve gone with the scare quotes on both.
Anybody else get a Google Wave invite?
tylercoates: Are you guys looking for a copy editor? Competition! I think we’re on to something here. We might have to initiate a YM Scholarship Award. $500 for someone to blog on YoungManhattanite.com (not the Tumblr) for a month. Submission guidelines to follow.
andrearosen: youngmanhattanite: The intention of comedy, Andrew. I know how to spell Marc Zuckerberg’s name. I thought Foster’s last name was “Kramer” for, like, months. So “intentionally” misspelling names = comedy? I thought it was just the house style on Gawker!
The intention of comedy, Andrew. I know how to spell Marc Zuckerberg’s name.
As someone else pointed out, there is no second “u” in Mark Zuckerberg. WHO’S THE RETARD NOW, FOSTER?
Roland Polanski once stuck a banana up his ass. The banana just wants to move on. Why can’t you?
