Voicemail From A Crazy Person

What’s better than emails from crazy people? Voicemails from crazy people!! And, boy, is this a doozy. The story is: a woman was out with some friends at a bar in Toronto when she was approached by an aggressive guy who wouldn’t leave her alone. Finally, to get rid of him, she gave in and gave him her number. We’ve all been there, right? Only, she made the big mistake of giving her business card with her real number. He, in turn, left these crazy-ass voicemails, which I hope will prove a valuable lesson to all of you singles out there: NEVER give your real number to someone you don’t want to hear from! Full text is here. [Current via Emails From Crazy People] Keep reading »

RIP: Songwriter Ellie Greenwich

Sigh. The summer of death continues. In addition to the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy on Tuesday evening, writer Dominick Dunne died yesterday, as did songwriter Ellie Greenwich. Greenwich is best known for writing a number of songs made famous by the girl groups of the ’60s — “Chapel of Love,” “Be My Baby,” and one of my most favorite songs of all time, “The Leader of the Pack.” Check out the Shangri-Las performing the heartbreaking tune above.

Film Version Of Tucker Max’s “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” Does Not Thrill College Women’s Center

You’ve probably heard of Tucker Max, blogger and author of the memoir I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, who regaled the bestseller list with stories of sex with many, many women and excessive drinking. (The charming cover illustration is of a man holding a beer bottle and pointing to a blonde chick, whose face is cut out with the words “Your Face Here” written instead. Because we’re all inter-changeable, you see.) Max is that particularly awful brand of d-bag who is proud of critics who call him morally depraved and immature; in fact, his book is blurbed with hateful things people have said about him.

So, of course, Hollywood gave this fellow a movie deal! The film version of “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell,” which focuses on strip club/bachelor party shenanigans, debuts on September 25 and North Carolina State University planned an advanced screening today, followed by a Q&A session with Max.

But then the campus Women’s Center caught wind of the flick, which it said is sexist and encourages behavior leading to sexual assault. Surely you’re wondering, what’s so bad with this film? Keep reading »

“Pickle Surprise” Is The Scariest Thing I Have Ever Seen


Watching this “Pickle Surprise” video made me feel like I was trapped in some kind of nightmare. There is something highly disturbing and vaguely sexual about watching a bunch of cross dressers advertise (I use that term loosely) pickles and mayo. BuzzFeed calls it the gayest video on the internet, but if that’s gay, well, I’m going straight. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Marc Jacobs & Chairlift Do Bizarre, Low-Budget Videos For Saks


Chairlift is a band we love. Marc Jacobs is a designer we adore. Yet, we’re a bit puzzled by the promotional videos they worked on together for Saks Fifth Avenue. The videos feature the three members of Chairlift clad in Marc Jacobs’ fall collection, wandering around Williamsburg, Brooklyn like drugged-out hipsters. In each montage, set to Chairlift tunes, the sequences are clearly meant to look ironically low-budget with cheesy, porno-like close-ups on handbags and washed-out lighting. The effect comes off as completely bizarre. In the first, “Making an Entrance,” the gang wanders around a warehouse block doing yoga poses and attempting handstands. In “Drawing Attention,” the band heads to the roof of a building to look cool while drawing on the walls and taking pictures of each other to post on their blogs and MySpace pages. The craziest one, however, has to be “For the Love of Tacos,” above, where the Marc Jacobs-chic crowd goes to this, like, divey bodega for tacos that, of course, was totally rad before all the hipsters came and made it a party spot. Oh, the irony is killing us. Watch it and can we please discuss!?! [SaksFifthAvenue.com] Keep reading »

Is Your Man A Head Case?

Is your man a head case? These human beat boxes are, literally. Chris Cairns made this very amusing video starring Neurosonics Audiomedical Labs Inc. I will never look at two turntables and a microphone the same way again. [Videos.antville.org] Keep reading »

Comedian Gets Sued By Her Mama-In-Law

Stand-up comedian Sunda Croonquist is being sued by her mother-in-law. Why? Because in her comedy routines, Sunda—like, oh, every other comedian ever—makes fun of her background, mainly the fact that she’s half-black, half-Swedish, was raised Catholic and is now married to a Jewish guy. Her mama-in-law, Ruth Zafrin, says that she’s been defamed by Sunda’s jokes, which allegedly portray her as racist and ultra New Jersey-esque. Croonquist claims her hubby’s fam used to laugh at her routine, but decided it was no laughing matter when she put info about them on her website that gave away their identity. Watch the video above and tell us if you think it’s sue-worthy. Keep reading »
