lily allen does britney spears

this is who should have originally released "Womanizer". i don't really like this song - even though i find myself with the chorus in my head constantly - but i like this version.

i'm surprised Lily Allen would even cover Brit Brit. Lily's the biggest shit talker in the world and i would bet my entire life's savings (don't worry it's less than a grand) that's she's called Britney a "talentless prat" or said that "baby one more time" is "complete bollocks".

fat cat of the day

something tells me this cat would enjoy sledding



also, what kind of crazy box is that? some kind of diet cambodian green tea 7-up? and if they're so health conscious, maybe they should consider making that kitty cat lay off the meow mix.

eff you, animal

introducing the greatest blog to surface since Stuff White People Like....

http://fuckyoupenguin.blogspot.com/


adorable critters AND passive aggressive cyber bullying? this shit is right up my ally.

Fuck you, Penguin is a blog dedicated to telling cute animals "what's what". this person literally curses off animals and for some reason it cracks me up.

example:

Hey Prairie dog, I didn't realize donuts were native to the grasslands of North America! You're so fat, you make a capybara look like an African pygmy mouse!

Seriously, though, Prairie dog. You are really fat. This makes it very difficult for me, because the fact that your feet aren't touching the ground and your arms are kind of hanging down on your fat folds is fucking cute as shit. Am I supposed to feel bad for you? Is this what you wanted, Prairie dog? Damn you and your scheming ways.


ahhhh the internet. one day i'll come up with some brilliant blog idea and become an offical online sensation for a month and a half. because that's the average shelf life of an online sensation. until i turn it into a skanky reality show.

EON: Dragoneye Reborn

i was going to tell you to go buy this book for any teenage SciFi/Fantasy book-readers you still need a holiday gift for BUT since this comes out the day after xmas, it gets a little tricky.

SO, if you *ARE* a teenage SciFi/Fantasy book reader or even an adult SciFi/Fantasy enthusiast, use one of your inevitable gift cards to go buy this book the day after xmas.

this is author Alison Goodman's first book and she' been working on it for 10 years as she traveled to Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapre to realistically re-create Ancient China. She also trained in Tai Chi in order to create the mythical fighting style portrayed in the book - which is pretty fucking rad.




On December 26th, 2008 Penguin Young Readers Group is proud to present the release of



EON: DRAGONEYE REBORN

By Alison Goodman

Find Your Dragon Within

Under the harsh regime of an ambitious master, young Eon is training to become a Dragoneye, the human link to an energy dragon's power. His intensive study of Dragon Magic, which is based on the Chinese zodiac, involves two kinds of skills: sword-work and magical aptitude. Eon is lamed, and lacks the physical strength of his fellow trainees, but his unnaturally strong connection to the energy dragons helps him rise above the rest.

In a spectacular sequence of events, Eon is thrust into the heart of a lethal struggle for the Imperial throne. In this new, treacherous world of hidden identities and uneasy alliances, Eon faces a vicious enemy who covets the young Dragoneye’s astounding power, and will stop at nothing to make it his own. But Eon is playing a dangerous game: he is in fact Eona, a young woman whose true identity must remain hidden, for discovery would mean instant death.

Inspired by the rich myths and traditions of Ancient China, shimmering with energy dragons, filled with dazzling swordplay and fraught with tension, this is a fast-paced, exhilarating page-turner.

N.E.R.D - Sooner or Later - new vid!

the video is nothing special. the song isn't the strongest on the album but as i've said before, these guys can do no wrong in my book.



this is one of those circumstances where the single was probably chosen based on political activism. sorry pharrell - i appreciate the effort and want to have your babies and all but this would have been more relevant 4 months ago. i still love you though. chad too. shay can watch.

hockey: take 2

compliments of Charmaine Noel (via Kim) i scored some sweet ass tickets ($200 a piece) to the Rangers game. i mean, getting free tickets is already badass in itself but the fact that every seat on either side of us was vacant in a totally packed section just made it that much better. i like having some arm room to comfortably flair my limbs in drunken excitement. and i've never been to an event at Madison Square Garden before so it was nice to experience that.

so yeah basically i learned my lesson from the first hockey game i went to and thought it would be smart to go NOWHERE during over time. and here's the cool part...if there are no goals scored during overtime, it goes to a shoot off! if you loved the Mighty Ducks movies as much as i did, you would TOTALLY appreciate that.

so we get to the shoot off, 4 up, 4 down...no goals scored. finally the captain of the rangers gets one in...yay! so now the pressure is on for the last guy up on the Hurricanes. needless to say, he blew it and the Rangers won. good times. i might be falling in love with hockey.

Deep Focus does the holidays...again

yeah so on thursday i attended my THIRD Deep Focus holiday party. that's right, i've been working at DF since i was 21...that might make me pathetic but i mean, what can i say...i get comfortable and i like to stay that way. OH and not to mention all the people i work with make my day to day life semi-awesome. just semi. but that's way better than not awesome at all, right?

basically, Ian is kind of the best CEO ever because he realizes that throwing a 4 hour top shelf open bar spectacular for a company where 98% of employees are in their 20s is just bound to be a drunken shit show and he's not only okay with that - it's encouraged. ohhhh Deep Focus, when i'm old and successful...i'll always think fondly of you.















and now i present you with the ever so poised, sophisticated and Harvard educated Kimberly Noel...who also happens to be my work Bestie...

classy bitch







it's funny because i was being serious about that classy and sophisticated stuff...

i like that



anybody remember Houston? anybody remember when Houston went insane and gouged his eyeball out? yuck, i shudder just thinking about that.

anyway, apparently Houston is relevant again as a vocal activist against inner-prison rape (um, really?).

oh Houston, you used to be soooo darn cute. now you're all angry looking and creepy glass-eyed out. boo.



it should also be noted that i once had a brief love affair with Houston back during my intern days and let me tell you, i should have seen the crazy from the start. instead of a "hey, you've reached Houston" message on his voicemail, it was him reading from the bible for like 5 minutes. first of all, that's creepy and second of all, who's going to listen to that whole god damn thing every time they want to leave a message. regardless, Houston only liked me for about a day anyway and then i was just stuck with his creepy manager calling me for the next couple weeks.

whatever.

i still dig this jam.

crazy little thing called love

in what kind of sick universe does this happen?

babelicious Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) from Mad Men just got engaged to THIS guy?! it's fucking Karl Benson from Garden State. BARF.



as disturbed as i am by this terrible waste of a hot babe, it just goes to show that hot chicks always date less attractive dudes. in this case, MUCH less attractive. seriously, do you ever see a super super hot guy with a girl who's much less attractive than him? no. and on the rare occasion that does happen, it never works out. you just can't keep a hot guy tied down.

ladies, my advice to you - always date a guy who's equally or less attractive than you are. UNLESS you're Joan fucking Holloway. that's the only exception.
