Lita Ford don’t give a fuck about Lil B. Why should you?
rickycamilleri: Totally J/K with Joe Mande and Noah Garfinkel by me and Andrew Krucoff for BlackBook Magazine. Have you ever touched someone’s penis because you were curious about a crease in their sweatpants?
redneckzilla: I’m going on a mission! Here is where I am going! So it finally happened. I finally am going to go out and put on my nametag and shave my mustache and tell people that they can be gay and God will still love them and that women are powerful like gods and that we’re all gonna be saved in the end because God loves us and provides for us so do you want to read a Book of...
tylercoates: bbook: This week, we’re bringing you video interviews with some of the biggest and most-respected names in New York comedy. While many think of comedy shows as cheesy affairs featuring lame stand-up comics and two-drink minimums, a new crowd of performers are changing the game by hosting their own shows to showcase their own talents as well as those of their friends, colleagues,...
bmichael asked: I guess there is a downside of relentlessly jokey lit-dude culture after all?
thenotes: Cecilia wrote a screenplay that’s better than anything I’ve done. Not that what I’ve done is any good. Some people don’t read what I write and have the tactlessness to start a conversation about why and when and where they didn’t read it—though for some reason even this banality is colored by positive assumptions and great excitement about what remains to be read in some anticipated...
ninety9: I think it’s fair in the current student loan discussion to point out that the timing is rather, um, fortuitous. That is, the job market has soured enough that the people for whom opportunity was always a pretty hard slog (the three lower quintiles in terms of income or mobility, who haven’t had a real wage increase in 40 years) are no longer the only ones feeling the effects of a...

minou: This student loans thing is actually a real big deal, you guys. I won’t go into a long comparison of the student loan debt panic of late to the sex panic of the late 20th century, mostly because I doubt any implicit and attendant comparison between getting an education (under false premises, but still) and contracting HIV holds up, and further, I wouldn’t want it to, but let me just say...
Ricky Camilleri and I did a series of video interviews for BlackBook that profiles weekly comedy shows (one for each day, Monday through Friday) in New York. The first one features Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler who host Hot Tub at Littlefield in Brooklyn on Monday nights. On a side note, some friends have asked why I did this, as I have not interviewed anyone for publication since Gothamist...

Virginia House of Delegates rejects gay judge →
“The debate in the House of Delegates was homophobic and embarrassing and showed a disrespect to a chief deputy commonwealth attorney and decorated veteran who was honorably discharged,” said Sen. Adam P. Ebbin (D-Alexandria), Virginia’s first openly gay state senator. “It’s offensive that the Senate wouldn’t even grant Lt. Thorne-Begland the courtesy of a vote.” Virginia. Still a terrible...
