Ah, Jake Fogelnest who I recently rediscovered. You can watch his web show every Friday night at 7PM ET here-BTW-Sometimes I awkwardly watch it with my webcam on (it’s on Stickam so you can turn your cam on and the host and room can see you too).


Recently Improv Everywhere had a No Pants Subway Ride. It seems pretty fun. Tear-Drop NYC attended. You can go here to see more photos from the event in his Facebook album or here on Examiner.com.

Tear-Drop – Quick Top-40 / Hip-Hop / Urban / Mainstream Mix (1.13.2012) (LQ) by TearDropNYC-his newest mix

Soho Grand Hotel’s Black & White Masquerade Ball-Mena Suvari looks amazing

By Isaac Cordal in Barcelona, Spain-a very cool series of photos by an artist using sculptures of small people set around a city.

James Franco’s ‘Francophrenia’ to Have World Premiere in Rotterdam-Franco used footage from General Hospital to make a “humorous psycho-thriller”. Aha! That’s what he was doing guesting on a soap. He couldn’t just do it seriously, could he?

Being Mad on Twitter-Margaret Cho explains why she had to go off on a couple of douche bags who insulted her when she posted a picture of her new ass tattoo on twitter.

Sennett Bathing Beauties, 1915-neat

Crimson Raider Cocktail Recipe-this drink recipe includes blackberries and sounds super yummy.

Scenes from a Los Angeles scifi convention, 32 years ago-the comments on this are great too

Exclusive: Quentin Tarantino’s favorite films of 2011 & more!-neat!

The Part of a Movie Where the Girl Gets a Make-Over-I love movie makeovers. The makeover in Jawbreaker is so astonishing that the first time I saw it I was unsure if Judy Greer played both the before and after of Fern Mayo.

“I fully respect & support everyone’s right to stalk others via the internet”, haha I love when Jenna Marbles takes the opposite stance.

13 Simpsons Jokes That Actually Came True-This is great. It’s a list of jokes or plot points from The Simpsons that later actually happened. I believe that my favorites are the comparisons between the Viva Ned Flanders episode and The Hangover, the Kill Bill billboard that sprays blood ala Itchy and Scratchy and that someone actually invented tomacco.

Marilyn Monroe Still Life-a take on the continuing fame of Marilyn Monroe long after her death written by Gloria Steinem in the 80s.

Polone: The Three Ways a Studio Can Screw Up Your Movie Release -producer Gavin Polone (8MM, Stir of Echoes, My Boys, Curb Your Enthusiasm) talks about studios and how they can fail to correctly market a film.

The fight goes on.-an amazingly honest post from The Bloggess about depression. Then check out another mental health post from her that’s a favorite of mine, Notes from the shrink’s office-(this one’s funny though)

The Nostalgia Fact-Check: How Does Labyrinth Hold Up?“Bowie obsessives”-they’ve got my number. Labyrinth was one of the first DVDs I ever received as a gift due to my known love of Bowie.

Never Ever Tell Me To Smile-Yes, I can relate. Random strangers on the street shouldn’t try to dictate your facial expressions.

How to Throw a Party When You’re Broke-Marie of Agent Lover shares how to throw a fun, creative, cheap party over on RookieMag.

The Story of Story: A Traveling Stripper-If you enjoyed the book Candy Girl by Diablo Cody you’ll probably dig this.

Paisley & Leather-an awesome groupie inspired outfit post from Sea of Shoes.

“the cuddling’s your favorite part”
I have no idea how I missed this funny video that spoofs Ralph Macchio’s clean cut image when it was released last year during his stint on DWTS but I’m glad that I came across it.


Bounce That Dick by Jenna Marbles is hilarious and catchy.

Interview: Judy Greer on “The Descendants” & “Archer”-I’m so happy that Nathaniel R. interviewed Judy Greer. It seems like many people aren’t familiar with her work even though she’s so talented.

Heres the thing – Social Media!-Actor/chef Paul Mercurio (man did I ever have a huge crush on him growing up) writes about social media’s ability to both help us and hinder us when communicating. I’m not at all famous and I have still thought about the issues that he raises in the past.

Saturday Night’s Children: 2011 In Review-I love these recaps of the cast of SNL (even though we sometimes don’t share the same opinions).

Woody Allen’s First Stab at ‘Midnight in Paris’: A 1971 Short Story-I’m super enamored with Midnight in Paris so I loved this article about how Woody Allen was already toying with this idea in the 70s.

Interview with Tha Original Gata Monique Dupree-She is such a hard working woman and loves what she does.

Dita Von Teese: What I Wore-I love her style and here’s a rundown about a week’s worth of it straight from the pin up’s mouth.

The Star Market: Is Charlize Theron Mounting a Cruel Comeback?-This is both interesting and insane, “For a while, she didn’t even have an agent — just her former United Talent Agency manager, J.J. Harris”. That just doesn’t make any sense when someone is talented and has had so much professional success. Of course you have other great actors/super famous actors who can only get direct to DVD roles now so I guess it makes some sort of sense.

Dear Congress, It’s No Longer OK To Not Know How The Internet Works-This country is ridiculous. Oh and as someone who adores twitter, people should not be doing that shit at work, let alone when the fate of our country is in their thumbs.

Abby Elliott is in the new Maxim-I love that she was in the new Maxim. I do wish that they would use her more on SNL. I also wish they hadn’t photoshopped her face so much.

8 days of recipes: jelly donut cupcakes-These look pretty yummy.

Keck’s Exclusives: First Look: That ’70s Show Stars Back Together!-Wilmer Valderrama will be guest starring on Laura Prepon’s new sitcom Are You There, Cheslea?. I love that the cast still hangs out.

Lex of Smarmy Clothes is in a band and they just released this very fun cover of Britney Spears’ I Wanna Go.

There’s a dramatic series starring Cumming as a drag queen and I’ve never heard of it? Man, the things you miss when you don’t have cable (or live in England). I’m going to have to find a way to watch this.


Jessica Harlow’s great video of Diane Von Furstenberg who discusses being yourself and standing up for yourself. At one point she basically says that people are going to question or insult you anyway so you might as well be standing up for who you really are as opposed to acting like someone else and then having to fight to be some fake persona.


from the 12/17/11 episode of Saturday Night Live. Jimmy Fallon did a kick ass job. I didn’t stop laughing. Sometimes I find that they overdo Kristen Wiig’s characters but I really enjoyed the return of this one.

James Franco and Laurel Nakadate Raise the Dead-This is a piece from Interview about that unusual play/seance that James Franco recently put on NYC (which I had previously mentioned on twitter). I wish I could have been there.

my kind gift guide-from Alicia Silverstone. Some cute ideas for crafty folks.

Dating Advice For Jason Segel“When a woman is visiting your apartment for the first time and you’re feeling nervous about your puppet room, take all of the puppets out of the puppet room and put them in your bedroom with roses in their mouths.”-cracked me up.

David Cronenberg: It’s as if my old movies don’t exist-Salon’s interview with David Cronenberg about his new film A Dangerous Method. This movie sounds so up my alley,a Cronenberg film about Freud with a great cast.

All Work and No Pay: The Great Speedup-a very powerful article about Americans being overworked and how their patriotism/threat of losing their jobs is being used against them to perpetuate this. This is a good read for all of you online independent contractors. (It doesn’t change anything but it’s still interesting.)

FAO Schwarz Muppet Whatnot Workshop-You can order your own custom muppet. It’s $99 but that doesn’t actually seem too bad considering that it’s a freakin’ muppet. How neat. I designed this one just for fun.

Sabrina & Salem: Together Again-Melissa Joan Hart and Nick Bakay star in this hilarious video.

My Drunk Kitchen, Ep. 12: Pizza-pizza, it’s the best

What Girls Do When They’re Drunk-Jenna Marbles being hilarious, yet accurate, as per usual.

Lust for Love Movie Facebook page-Basically everyone who was part of the cast of the amazing Dollhouse (aside from Eliza Dushku), including Enver Gjokak, Dichen Lachman, Fran Kranz, Miracle Laurie and Maurissa Tancharoen, raised money via Kickstarter to make an independent romantic comedy (how did I miss this campaign?). So cool. FYI-they were casting extras recently on there too. Plus there are a bunch of behind the scenes pics.

Ice Cube Is Bringing Friday Back!!-They are officially making a new Friday movie, very cool.

Lushworthy Creations: “Lush Cider” (Created Using Conjure Cognac & Smirnoff Whipped Cream) Recipe-This sounds so yummy. Unfortunately I live in a police state that has outdated liquor laws so there isn’t much selection. That means that, no, no one around here sells Ludacris’ Cognac (which I’ve been wanting to try forever). Ludacris even tweeted about this recipe, so it’s LudaApproved!

Want to ring Charlie Sheen for a chat? Here’s his number-Some brave souls called the number, read/watch what happened.

I Played Phone Tag With Charlie Sheen-I normally would never link you to Jezebel (yuck) but this is pretty interesting and I came across it after reading the above post.

“Dear Alec Baldwin…”-He makes some good points about Alec Baldwin, his recent airline complaint and public perception versus the characters that an actor plays.

Hobo drink a too much from David Arquette’s twitter. It’s a video of him basically just playing with some Christmas figures. Maybe is amuses me because my sister and I used to do that as kids.

Happy 51st Julianne Moore. What’s Next?-If you are a fan then you should definitely read this (and Nathaniel’s interview with her from 2010 that he links to).

Nicki Minaj Barbie doll: Would you buy one for your kids?-I don’t have a dog in this fight (I’m not a mom) but this doll freakin’ adorable. They should mass market them.

Best $2k I Ever Spent! Iggy & The Stooges Rock The Palladium Like Zombie Kings-espouses how Iggy is still super awesome in concert.

Stocking Stuffers: 13 Writing Tips From Chuck Palahniuk-Hey fellow writers, here are some great tips from one of my favorite authors.

The importance of being alone-a good read. I’ve been alone (not always by choice) much of my life but I have female friends who never do stuff alone and they always tell me when they do because they know that I will be proud of them. FYI-You do need to be prepared if you are heading somewhere with a lot of misogynists (ex. dive bar) because they may insult you, just a heads up (it does happen). I rarely have problems at the theater or restaurants though.

The Lords of Salem-Rob Zombie has a new horror movie coming out next year about a radio station. The cast includes Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago, Ken Foree, Bruce Davison, Christopher Knight, Michael Berryman, Sid Haig, Patricia Quinn, Clint Howard and Udo Kier.
