Brunets, not fighter jets

Wikipedia tells me that Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie were roomies at film school before forming the band Flight of the Conchords. Also, Bret was an elf in Peter Jackson's.... read more

Fluevog: The source of self love

Other Matt totally scooped me when he reviewed his shoes last week. But that’s ok, because he can’t possibly love his slouchy casual runners as much as I love my elegant kickass ladyheels. Just look at these gorgeous, sexy heels. Every time I wear them, strangers compliment me. They beg me to tell them where I bought them, tell me they’re fantastic.... read more

Amish people don’t have these problems

Oh my god, man, is there anything better than horror movies from the 70s? They’re always so fucked up and cerebral, like they’re trying to alter your brain chemistry, and I don’t even know why.

(At 14, pretty much all our cash was excess cash.) He had picked the game up off the shelf at the toys and hobbies store we were wandering through. He... read more

Working Class Heroes: Top 10

Alan Moore is a legend in the world of comics. Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The dude himself is I guess kind of a creepy old hermit, but his writing... read more

The lease did promise Quiet Enjoyment

Knock on wood, I have pretty good Apartment Karma. The worst neighbour I’ve ever had was my first neighbour: a stay-at-home crazy person who woke me after my first night in my suite by hammering on our shared wall with both fists and screaming FUCKERS!!! over and over again. (It’s funny now, but at the time I felt like Tom Hanks in Big when he... read more
