Finally, there was the ghetto bodega, which was what he called it, he uttered the words “ghetto bodega” in the year of our lord 2007 and I know this because I witnessed it, our lord, 2007, “ghetto bodega,” and I just stared at him and said, “What?” and he said, “I bought toilet paper there once and it had rat droppings on it,” and I said, “Those are smart rats,” and he said, “Anyway, that...

(via youngmanhattanite) I CAN’T BELIEVE AHMADINEJAD’S ADDRESS TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY DIDN’T MAKE THE TOP TEN! WHAT KIND OF LIST IS THIS, WIESENTHAL CENTER
jamesurbaniak: natashavc: oscahfevah: I have decided on my favorite picture of 2010. It would be The Fighter. Some one said, “But Natasha, you haven’t seen True Grit yet.” To which I say, ‘tis no matter. The Coen Bros could never create something with so much heart. I enjoy the Brotherz C but they are a frigid lot. I just want to go on the record as saying that the Coens are among our...

This thread is really long so I’m going to break up the reblogs into a series of comments. Please read through to the end. throughbeincool: what is this horseshit? lesfemmefatale: I can’t even watch this whole thing without seriously wanting to blow my head off. This chick is such a drunken embarrassment… xxxmermaid: dumass theres a simple solution get the fuck out the “scene” and...
thenotes: And sure, Chris, I can appreciate that Salem’s music is lazy and grates on you, but “minstrelsy” is a hysterical reach at best. If you see this as a mockery of southern rap culture rather than a strained yet earnest imitation of it, then you probably need to delete about 80% of your iTunes library. Um, both of those things are minstrelsy.
I’d be in pitch meetings, and I’d say, ‘Did you notice that there was only one...– Geena Davis and her Institute on Gender in Media have done some fantastic research and activism highlighting the need for more girls in children’s movies.

Alfredo Jaar “A Logo for America” (1987) part of the Public Art Fund’s “Messages to the Public” series
hungryghoast: filippocioni: Keit [sic] Haring - Untitled, 1984 Pretty certain this image (or one similar to it) was used by Haring in his “spot” for the Messages To The Public series by The Public Art Fund (of which I can find shockingly little on the internet except mentions in the cv’s of now eminent artists). Can you imagine this image animated and broadcast on a massive screen in Times...
Was your Gawker password hacked? →
cureforbedbugs: Anyone who participated in the Jackin’ Pop Idolator polls a few years ago — even if you never knowingly registered for a Gawker site — are likely affected by the recent Gawker hack. Be sure to check to see if your email and password (whichever you used to register) were released. Servicey! Mine showed up as a Jezebel account, but it had a record of comments on some surviving...
stray thought of the morning (inspired by the “Confidential” chapter in The Bad and the Beautiful): how would the cultural perception of R. Kelly differ if his alleged underage partners had been male?
Sam Fuller, master of subtlety
Hey remember when El DeBarge covered “Sweet Love” as part of the tribute to Anita Baker at this year’s Soul Train Awards?
Got me on the frontline
alexmacpherson: Similarly, protesters began to be moved out of Parliament Square around 9pm, some time after the main period of ugliness - the attempt to storm the Treasury - had been quelled and dissipated. Non-violent protesters - the vast majority of those who had been kettled, whose role throughout had been either to observe the violence or to busy themselves elsewhere - who had been...
Me and Miles, we made a list. →
You won’t find my submission on this list. This is because Black Box’s “Dreamland” came out in 1990, which I suppose is a pretty good reason to disqualify it. Check it out anyway!
