I’m dying. I love this guy. He has started a website to get himself a wife. He’s got a great sense of humor and isn’t kidding about this – he’s already responded to me about one fabulous lady I nominated.

Oh, also, Jeremy, I have this idea for you ….

This is also a great source of enjoyment, but in an entirely different way …

Thanks, Rachel!

and here is the cover, already.

My friend Robbi posted this on facebook a few days back. I wish I were cool enough to have thought of doing this on my own.

This is a really well done piece – a guy recut Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and made a trailer with an “indie coming of age” feel.

I know I shouldn’t complain, because the weather in Florida was awesome and we went to the Honda Classic and a Red Sox spring training game … but I’ve been at JFK for hours, stranded because of weather in Vermont (2 feet of new snow) and I’m kind of wishing I had either stayed in Florida or stayed in Florida.  I found myself asking … myself, what would a stranded traveling Cyndi Lauper do?

And here is the answer:

Charlie Sheen is on fire of late.  Did you know that he published a book of poetry in the eighties?  Here is the link to some selections.

I had a conversation at dinner about how messed up Florida is, crime-wise, and that it’s one of the most dangerous places to be, as a child.  Oddly enough, I came across this link this morning.

Valentines Day edition.

This will be simple….here are the first 3 SFW youtube clips I thought of when I woke up this morning and realized I’d be having Valentines Day dinner alone. Actually, with my parents…but same thing really.

A new Slate article: By helping other people look happy, Facebook is making us sad. By showcasing the most witty, joyful, bullet-pointed versions of people’s lives, and inviting constant comparisons in which we tend to see ourselves as the losers, Facebook appears to exploit an Achilles’ heel of human nature. And women—an especially unhappy bunch of late—may be especially vulnerable to keeping up with what they imagine is the happiness of the Joneses.

This is cool.



SHE SAID: Holiday Music (and also, I’M BACK)

December 22, 2010

I started hearing Christmas music in stores this year before Thanksgiving, which should be illegal.  Not only is the retail push for the Christmas rush nauseating, but the music itself is one the whole, terrible.  I’m not talking about the awesome renditions of Baby, it’s Cold Outside or other highlights, which I have listened to on rare occasion while there was not a wreath hanging on my door, but I am referring to, oh just of the top of my head, the Barenaked Ladies rendition of Jingle Bells (wait until about 40 seconds in if you want to experience agony) or The Chipmunks singing Christmas Don’t Be Late (Alvin singing “hula hoop” is pretty cute, I will admit).  How about the Beach Boys Little Saint Nick which includes the insightful lyric, “Christmas comes this time each year.”  Or, my least favorite, anything by Sarah McLachlan who must have recorded her Christmas album right after she got food poisoning from her neighbor’s Christmas cookies after she was dumped under the mistletoe which after she was swiped by a car while walking home since her snowshoe broke in the middle of a snowstorm during which the hot chocolate burned her tongue.  The woman clearly was miserable when she recorded her Christmas album.  Listening to one song makes me depressed.

I’m sure by now you’re wondering (the one person reading this blog other than my mom) where this depth of knowledge regarding Christmas music comes from.  And the truth is that while working retail, I have been exposed to Holiday music non stop since Thanksgiving.  I find myself singing Feliz Navidad while folding laundry at night, I know more Chanukah songs that most of my Jewish friends and I know a lot about who has recorded holiday music.

And I have come to a few realizations in the past 30 days.

1. The Jews need to spice up their holiday music.  Between I Have A Little Dreidel, Oh Chanukah, Eight Days of Chanukah and Light One Candle, written by Peter, Paul & Mary, it’s looking a little drab even before getting thrown into the mix with the slew of chipper Christmas music on the airways.

2. The Christians need to tame it down.  Enough is enough.  How many covers of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas do we need?

3. Selling out is Huge.  Almost all new recording artists have covered a holiday song.  Including some surprises like Alison Krauss, No Doubt, Rhianna, Wyclef Jean and Lady Gaga.  I expected holiday music from Mariah Carey, Vanessa Williams and Michael Bolton, but not Sting and Maroon 5.

4. Auditory Torture is Real.  When listening to holiday music for extended periods of time, you can go mad, act violently, and have prolonged loss of consciousness.

5. There is no limit to Glee’s reach.  Seriously.  A Christmas album?  And it’s selling well?  To quote The Onceler, “you never can tell what some people will buy.”  That being said, since we ripped Glee apart I’ve been watching Glee regularly.  I’m being made fun of at home on a regular basis and we can delve into my love/hate relationship with Glee at a later date.

6. This one is shocking, but Advertising is Not Always True.  Now That’s What I Call Music 4 is claiming that Colbie Caillat is a superstar.  I beg to differ.

7. Cookies are Good and Make Listening to Christmas Music Easier.  Even when your son insists on making the gingerbread cookies Star Wars characters instead of the traditional gingerbread man and woman.
