KRAMPUS IS COMING!
You can’t spell Santa without Satan.
SLIDESHOW OF THE WEEK: I don’t care what anyone says, Tilda Swinton is fearless. Love her.
POST RON JOHNSON…things just keep getting worse for JC Penney.
DRINKING THE KOOL AID: If you’ve never read about the Jonestown Massacre, you should. It happened 35 years ago and remains one of the most horrifying incidents of our not that recent past. Also, unless I’m overly cynical or pessimistic, it is something that could happen again given the increasing polarization of our society.
CANNOT POSSIBLY LOVE MORE:
HEY GUYS: Turns out, there’s not as much going on with our Y chromosome. Except for that whole breeding thing.
LAME: This right here is exceptionally disappointing. And you know why? Start-ups with a sense of entitlement that are dumb beyond words and obnoxious to the extreme. Also, this right here.
CHECKMATE: Chess gets its first rock star.
TODAY SAN FRANCISCO…But as economic disparity gets worse and worse, this is going to be happening in more and more places.
TIDINGS OF THE SEASON!
INFOGRAPHIC OF THE WEEK: Thanks to one of Dappered’s favorite artists for the tip on this handy guide to matching your shoes with your trousers.
HEADLINES: Going to be hard to beat this one.
REPEAT: This. Over and over again. I know I know, it’s not nice to poke fun at someone’s expense. Bwahahahahaha.
IT’S YOUR ONE WAY TICKET TO HAPPINESS:
Applause. I have lots for this. So much applause.
IN ALL HONESTY: I just can’t even be bothered to come up with the snark about this. Flogging just isn’t as fun as it used to be.
EXCUSE ME: It seems to be really dusty in here. Or something. Wow.
SCREAMING IN THE WILD: This never gets old.
THE KELPIES OF SCOTLAND:
Ginormous horse sculptures in Scotland. I very much would like to see these up close and in person.
DA GENIUS OF DA VINCI: Start here. Then head on over here. Also, here. Uh-maze-ing.
REALLY? The Miley Cyrus effect? Because that seems to be candy coating the $#@& out of this mayhem. Unbelievable.
I’LL DRINK TO THAT: No, really. I think I need St. Bruno’s Cure.
Need something else to read?
- Is today’s mega consumption overload really worth it?
- Come for the hat. Stay for the rig. Substitute the current end-of-the-world scenario.
- Yes, it’s a bit early, but one should always be prepared.
