…And now, let us consider Ke$ha, now that everyone has grown weary of talking about her. Yes, let’s talk about Ke$ha. It’s Ke$ha time.
When you step out the door, you're playing a role. Whether you're a hippie, stock broker, police officer or biker, you dress the way the world expects you to dress, you act the way the world expects you to act. So you can imagine how much more intense this is for celebrities, whose very careers depend on managing a public image down to the molecule. But even they can't keep the occasional image-shattering photo from leaking out to the public ... #14. Dr.
Power Hours are my favorite form of social drinking (side note: my favorite form of non-social drinking involves Colt 45 and Youtubing bad 80s horror movies). A Power Hour is when you take a shot of beer every minute for sixty minutes, while listening to a pre-made playlist of song clips. The signal for taking a shot is indicated by the change from one song to another on said playlist (in other words, there is a 60 second snippet of each song you’ve selected). I’m sure it sounds strange and contrived from that description, and that’s because it is strange and contrived. As you might imagine, it’s popular on college campuses. It is, in my humble estimation, the best pre-game for someone venturing out to a bar or party.
Taking a day off from flying fighter planes bare chested and shooting wild tigers, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin displayed his musical talents preforming a piano solo and singing “Blueberry Hill” for a cancer charity fundraiser at the ice stadium in St. Petersburg. Before his performance he noted: “Like the majority of people I cannot — but do like to sing and to play — so you’ll have to rough it.”
For a long time, I used to go to bed early. That’s not really true; that’s the first line from A Remembrance of Things Past , actually. I don’t really go to bed early. But I do sleep a lot. All of my friends are insomniacs, which sounds artsy and cool to me (in theory).
Remember when the History Channel was about, um, history? And by history, I mean Hitler? Well, over time, it’s shifted its programming lineup to focus on the cultural dissection and investigation of “redneck”/ rural/ blue collar people. There’s Ice Road Truckers , Mounted in Alaska (about taxidermy), American Pickers (guys who scour hoarders’ stockpiles for valuables), UFO Hunters , Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy , and about thirty different shows about Jesus, the Rapture, and scientifically proving the Bible. Now, the History Channel brings us… Swamp People . You asked for it, America!
Eli is my five-year old son. He has an older brother, Slade. Slade writes fiction and spends a substantial amount of time on FlipNotes, so he rarely says anything worth quoting. Eli, on the other hand, has unknown goals and will say things that I feel other people could relate to, so I occasionally quote him via Twitter and once on Autostraddle .
If I were a robot, I would probably not kill all humans. Emphasis on the “probably” part. …Because I’m not making any absolute guarantees about my behavior as a robot. I wouldn’t want to limit myself in that way. I don’t necessarily know what I’d be like as a robot.
Yoga has always seemed a bit controversial to me. Endure an hour of awkward (and often painful) poses and then bada bing, bada boom your mind and body are rejuvenated. Doesn’t something seem wrong with this picture? Sure, you feel better after yoga. But is that because of the yoga?
1. The “Young Unprofessional” Outfit A twentysomething’s idea of “work attire” can often be anything but.
