I LOVE YOU.
AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE GNAWING ON DEER LEGS.
THAT’S NOT ENOUGH.
AS MUCH AS AMERICA LOVES WHITEWASHING ITS HISTORY OF IMPERIALISM AND CONSTANTLY DENYING OR DOWNPLAYING THE INSTALLATION AND MILITARIZATION OF FOREIGN REGIMES SYMPATHETIC TO ITS FINANCIAL INTERESTS.
BETTER, BUT STILL NOT ENOUGH.
I LOVE YOU AS MUCH AS KANYE WEST LOVES LAUGHING AT HIS OWN PUNCHLINES IN HIS SONGS.
NOW YOU’RE JUST LYING. NOBODY LOVES ANYTHING THAT MUCH.
this will forever be the greatest video ever made.
Sudden cathartic realization of THE FASHIONS and AESTHETICS: I basically just want my entire life to look like the hypersaturated pop-religion floral sequinned over-the-top faux-branded clusterfuck of the 1996 version of Romeo+Juliet, forever all of the time. Which I hated at the time — I was what, in junior high school the first time I saw it? and not particularly interested in liking anything, let alone Leonardo diCaprio, ew, that was for dumb girls — but have become oddly re-obsessed with in the past year. And a bit of googlin’ revealed that the costume designer was the same lady who did the costumes for The Matrix. Of course!

HADITH OF THE DAY: Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wasalam) said, “Do not disdain a good deed, (no matter how small it may seem) even if it is your meeting with your (Muslim) brother with a cheerful face.“ [Muslim].

How Was Your Week: Episode 47
“What Someone’s Mom’s Idea of a Nightclub Is”
…comedian, Rosie O’Donnell expert and viral videographer, ELIOT GLAZER (Shit New Yorkers Say, It Gets Betterish) is here to share his favorite “WTF” moments of Rosie’s occasionally bizarre career. Yes, her variety show will be discussed, as will her Spanx-based standup, and “Riding the Bus with My Sister.”
Eliot Glazer is very good at picking up on show biz weirdness. When we did a podcast together he would shoehorn references to Rosie O’Donnell, Oprah, and other TV monsters onto the show, and then we’d spend a half hour or more talking about them in the studio off the air. You might think, “Big whoop, a gay guy obsessing about gay icons,” but it’s deeper.
He has strong radar for detecting the absurdities that result when a human sacrifices her personhood in order to become a brand.
You’re left with Rosie winking coyly at Clay Aiken, calling him a cutie patootie, long after she’s come out of the closet, with the audience whoo-ing like things are really heating up on stage. Or Barbara Streisand giving Oprah a tour of her “Dream Home” and saying things like “I am so entranced by nature. I live on the ocean. That’s an ever-changing painting.” Or Oprah wishing Tom Cruise, “All the peace of these mountains,” while standing on the balcony of his CASTLE in Colorado. Billionaires, saying these things to each other, with zero self-awareness.
And Eliot is just losing his mind, holding his head in his hands, yelling “WHAAAAAT??!! WHAT IS HAPPENING?!”
It’s a pleasure to watch.
