Another type is fetish sweaters. There are a lot of people who like sweaters as...– Sweater (Types and design) - Wikipedia (via beret) (via fleetfootedfox) WTF. Of course, I had to google “fetish sweater” as soon as I read this. And…wow, yeah. Here are some examples. Only kinda NSFW, as there’s a knitted genital koozy thing. Annnnd I’m done.
Dear Future Girlfriend,: Live Review: Weird Weeds... →
The three main things I demand from music are idiosyncrasy, excellence, and soul. When I listen to music, I want to believe that the musicians are doing something that no one else is doing, better than anyone else could do it, because they are supernaturally compelled to do it. Of course, I… Yay the Weird Weeds! I love your review, and I can’t wait to hear their new record. And...
Seven Deadly Traits →
Interesting article on the traits of mass murderers as evidenced by their manifestos, and how Joe Stack’s stacks up. Narcissism is number one, of course.
When I think about the news items my social circle has discussed most over the...– Sean Padilla, I Make Good Music, Love Women, Hate Violence, and Don’t Owe the IRS a Cent
Much of On The Road consists of loopy conversations that probably seemed...– Steven Hyden, Better Late Than Never: On the Road. This is why I’ve grown to strongly dislike most Beat literature.
It’s been a hard fucking week, that’s for damn sure. But two miracles occurred that have inspired and enraged me. Two miracles have helped me to put my life and my emotions into perspective. The first miracle was reading Esquire’s new piece on Roger Ebert and his struggle with cancer, An Essential Man. I literally wept at my desk as I read about how Ebert has found new joy in...
The Mariana Trench to Scale →
3stripedsocks: That’s pretty damn deep. I like being a tiny black dot in the great scheme of things.
3/4 pint Guinness® stout 1/2 shot Bailey’s® Irish cream 1/2 shot Jameson®...– Irish Car Bomb recipe I just wonder why anyone would make this drink, not to mention why on earth they’d name it that. I’m hoping it’s an internet hoax. (via immlass) It’s real, I’ve had it, and it is DELICIOUS. If you drink it fast enough, it tastes like a milkshake. It’s meant...
Adrift Just Off the Islets of Langerhans:... →
Fill in the blank: “It seems like most people I know enjoy ______, but I don’t.” Water. I just don’t trust the stuff. I blame this on having grown up in southern Arizona, and then being further reinforced living in central Texas. Water is tricky. Look! it says. I bring life to plants! I’m… Word. I hate drinking water straight; I only do it after running or when I need liquid to swallow...
What draws you to karaoke? Pure, unadulterated self love. Some might call it egotism, but I call it love. I love singing, for one. The physical sensations I have when my voices is raised in song are deeply thrilling and satisfying to me. I also like it when people like a song and clap for me, though that’s not so important. I do increasingly crave the suspenseful thrill...
If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be? Easy—True Stories by David Byrne. While I think 2001: A Space Odyssey (which I mentioned earlier today) is unbelievably beautiful, improves with repeated viewings, and is one of the greatest films ever made, when it comes down to something I’d watch for the rest of my life, I’m going for something that...
Beginner's Hoop Class, starting March 28. →
I’ve been sitting on the idea of taking a beginner’s hooping class for some time. I’m going to do it for real next month—the 28th, in fact. Come payday, my spot in class will be reserved. (And my left hand will be fully healed.)
Roger Ebert: The Essential Man →
hangingfire: Esquire profile of Ebert and his life, post-surgery. Absolutely heartwrenching and inspiring. Just go read it. I’m tearing up with joy and sadness after reading this. What an incredible writer and an incredible man. Although I don’t keep up with his reviews very much anymore, I will always credit him with inspiring my love of films from an early age (I never would have...
Here's a Formspring thingy. →
The thing about Woody Allen is that he’s not only willing to put his own issues...– Elizabeth Wilcox, Why Sweet and Lowdown Takes All of Me
