This is a joke, right? A lovely UCLA
student — identified by The Daily What as poli-sci undergrad Alexandra Wallace — took to the Intertubes to bitch about Asians
. (You know, because they’re a monolithic group.) According to Alexandra, UCLA accepts “hordes of Asians” every year — which is fine
— who don’t have “American manners” when it comes to talking on the phone in the library. Entitlement! Obliviousness! Hedging her racist comments with “you guys know I’m not really politically correct”! This woman’s career in politics is golden.
After the jump, one of those gabby Asians responds to Alexandra with his own video about white girls in the library: Keep reading »
Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob? No way. And that more sophisticated version of the theme song? No thanks.
Watch the rest of the show after the jump. Keep reading »
I don’t know who this phantom saxophone player is, but I do know that we already have one very important thing in common — our undying love of adult contemporary sax solos. Mystery George Michael saxophone player, call me. [YouTube

Meet Norman, a 20-month-old Briard (although Julie says he looks like a Muppet) from Canton, Georgia. While Norman likes standard puppy activities like fetch, eating trash, and barking at shadows, his favorite way to pass the time is by riding his scooter. Above, Norman in action. I clearly need to be encouraging Lucca to be more ambitious. [Dlisted

Last night, during the results show of “American Idol,”
season eight runner-up, Adam Lambert
, took the stage to perform an acoustic version of his song “Aftermath.” I didn’t watch much of Lambert’s season of “Idol” but I do recall thinking he had great stage presence and a solid set of pipes. I also appreciated how out and proud he was about his being gay, especially given “Idol”‘s reach and influence — seeing someone like Lambert excel can do much to inspire a young gay teen who maybe feels ostracized at home and in his community. Acceptance is a primary theme in “Aftermath,” but I have to say I was especially impressed by just how good
Lambert’s performance was. I know I am late to the party, but I’m officially a fan. Keep reading »
I’m loving this “I Have Sex” video by a bunch of Wesleyan students. Last month the House of Representatives, led by a lovely bunch of social conservatives hellbent on ruining access to safe, legal abortions any way possible, voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood. This is crazytalk to anyone who’s ever gone to Planned Parenthood for the Pill or a Pap smear or to get a strange lump in your breast checked out. Sexual health is not something anyone should have to gamble with. Attention, conservatives: people have sex! [YouTube] Keep reading »
