twinnies

this is Shia LaBeouf



this is Tomas from The Orphanage



after a few cocktails, it might be hard to distinguish between the two. things could get a little awkward when i realize it's Shia i've been making out with and not that hot ghost child Tomas.

more pics of Shia being an asshole over at Dlisted!

beauty is only skin deep


i have a little rant on my chest that i need to get off and it has to do with Alexa Ray Joel. yeah, i don't get fired up often and the fact that one of these occasions would be prompted Billy Joel's unknown spawn is pretty fucking random but hey - i've had a little wine and the mood has struck.

i think Alexa Ray Joel is super adorable and it kills me that people hate on her for not being hot. first of all, she's not ugly by any means. yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and in my particular case, i think she's gorgeous but honestly, my objective point of view is pretty good and as far as girls in the spotlight go, she's quite cute for not trying very hard. the mere fact that she inherited all of Billy Joel's genes (as opposed to christie brinkley's) and isn't homely, is pretty damn amazing.



don't get me wrong, i am not without my faults. i'm not lacking the girl gene that provokes me to hate on um...oh you know, any girl who's threatening...but you have to pick your battles. my particular battle, of course, is Gingers. i hate on gingers because it's easy and it's funny. if you want the real truth, my grandma is (was) a strawberry ginger, my dad is a half ginger, my first cousin is a FLAMING ginger and i have ginger highlights (and freckles!) that i cover up by purposely coloring my hair red-ish so i can pawn it off on being "from a bottle". luckily my mom is 250% Italian so nobody questions my red hair as being real.

if Alexa had an obnoxious personality like say, Paris Hilton or Nicole Richie, or my arch nemesis RUMER WILLIS - all of whom use their wealthy parents as a way to fame - then i would jump on the hater bandwagon with the best of them. these people are talentless mediocre looking famewhores who do nothing but offend me with their retardedness. (actually, calling Rumer Willis mediocre looking is an EXTREME overstatement.) but Alexa doesn't put herself out there to be critiqued. so leave the girl alone!

quote from Alexa below in response to Douchebag Hilton's hatin'
I can’t help but be a little bummed out because the incredibly cruel, bullying Perez Hilton (this tabloid guy who calls himself the “queen of media”) just put up a horrible picture of me on his site and basically in so many words called me ugly…

I just feel like saying: “YES, my mom and I look completely different, and I’m OK with that. I like that I look unique, or more “exotic”–I don’t want to look like everybody else, and I also don’t want to look like a supermodel–I just want to look like ME!”

Those sites LOVE putting bad pictures up, and everybody has a few unflattering shots–especially on the red-carpet! I’m still not comfortable posing on it, and (who knows?) maybe I never will be, but I’m just so OVER being compared to my mom looks-wise! I’m happy to have a lot of my father’s features –I think he’s very handsome, and I’m quite sick of hearing people call HIM ugly–I think he has a very soulful face–the face of someone with character and integrity–who has LIVED, and has something important to say.

When my mom saw that Perez Hilton thing, she was like, “OK, what’s his point?–I have hundreds of bad pictures taken of me, and I’m a supermodel! Should I release them to the media so everyone can see that NOBODY is perfect?” (I love her for that).

It’s just rather depressing on a larger, societal level because apparently his tabloid site gets an average of 6 million hits a day (internationally), and I just feel like–WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THIS WORLD?


damn right, girl!

ps. sorry but i'm still i love with gossip mongering Dlisted. forgive me.


but let me also point out that when it comes to mediocre-looking people WITH TALENT, i have nothing but the utmost respect. these people deserve a huge round of applause for being normal human beings who have made a name for themselves for just being fucking awesome.

roll call!

LOST - Season 5 Premiere

i can't get all into this right now because my head will explode. information overload last night. all i can say is this is going to be a loooong season. how Ben is going to gather the Oceanic 6 for a triumphant return is beyond me. and what's the deal, Ben? i thought you COULDN'T return to the island once you moved it. you're such a pack of LIES. or are you?

favorite part of the season premiere? when Sawyer called that skank face Charlotte a ginger after she vocalized her dismay at the Faraday Face Slap!

"Shut it, Ginger, or you're getting one, too!"



based on Charlotte's nose-bleed headache situation (a la Desmond some episodes back) it's safe to say this bitch is dunzo soon unless she finds a Constant. we could only be so lucky. take your polar bear anthropology crap back to Tunisia.

if you're looking for a good recap, Doc Jensen over at EW.com does a pretty damn good job every week. it's the first thing i look at when i get to work the day after a new episode.

check it!

yay for fancy rats

today is Squirrel Appreciation Day so i'd like to give a shout out to all the squirrels in DC for being the ballsiest of squirrels (and that's saying something for a squirrel)

here's a DC squirrel right before we had a showdown. the squirrel won. (obviously)


honorable squirrel mention goes to
-the squirrels who throw nuts at my car in my apartment parking lot
-Sugar Bush Squirrel - International Superstar



so be nice to squirrels today. it's just one day out of the year. tomorrow i'll go back to tormenting them. at least until they call for a truce.

ding dong the witch is dead

praise jesus, dubbya is dunzo! hail president obama!



first black president
first official presidential photo taken with a digital camera (above)
first inaugural CNN/Facebook integration!



we've come a long way since Bush's swearing in. and while i do like Facebook's "status" feature, i haven't quite gotten on board with full fledged Twittering. "Tweets" if you will. i'm trying real hard, for the sake of my digital marketing knowledge, but seriously...the shit sucks.

which is why i'm surprised at how much i liked the CNN live stream//facebook status integration. it was actually really cool to read as-they-happen reactions to what was going on at the inauguration. this type of micro-blogging is like extreme chat rooms 2.0. problem is...it's only cool when there's a common interest; a conference, an awards ceremony, an inauguration, etc. aside from that, i just can't get on board with the twittering. facebook statuses are bad enough. why do i want to log in to Twitter and hear about your every little move? when did we become narcissistic to the point that we think people want to know what we're doing every single second of life?

it's kind of sick but it's the nature of the digital movement. the way people communicate is changing at such an alarming pace, it's insane to think how modern rhetoric will be influenced by this a mere 10 years down the line. i anticipate a large population of socially retarded people. probably starting with my sister's general age group. middle schoolers don't even talk on the phone anymore! long gone are the days of awkward phone calls from boys. they just text and sit on the computer all day long. and i thought high school speech class was bad enough. at least i was used to actually speaking to people. sheesh.

Futurama is not too far off...
