‘TIS THE SEASON:
FIFUHKED: The editor might have a different take on this than myself, but this just seems like a decision made on greed and hubris. Editor’s Note: Nope, this idea stinks. Want to improve the tournament? Don’t award hosting duties to a place where it’s on average 106 degrees in the summer.
TRICKLE UP ECONOMICS? I am going to be super mindful of the snark on this one. Nobody likes to see this happening. But after seeing a generation of people who had their pensions stolen by corporate shenanigans carried out by a certain profession…well. Like I said. Nobody wants to see this happen.
WANT OF THE WEEK: I would be so over these in a matter of minutes but what a glorious 300 seconds it would be.
BOWIE KEEPS SWINGING:
LIFEHACK OF THE WEEK? I can’t really say. I couldn’t make it past 40 seconds. Awkward.
NOW YOU’RE ASKING FOR IT: No, really. The trolling possibilities are infinite. Did no one see this happening? This isn’t even a partisan thing. This is just a newly poured cement pathway. It’s a freshly whitewashed alley wall. It’s a brand new white board. It’s…well, you get the picture.
WHY YES…I am as mature as your average twelve year old. But come ON. That’s a whole lot of happenstance right there. Editor’s Note II: Awww nuts.
WHAT THE SHINING?
AUNTY EM! AUNTIE EM! I guess it’s not really a terrible idea using crowdfunding in this way. But dang if I’m not used to it just yet. Having said that, does messing with the original thing actually tarnish the importance of the actual thing? I mean (and this is just going to get me in so much trouble), but: MEG RYAN. Do we want to take that chance? I’m so confused.
SUBSCRIPTION ITEM OF THE WEEK: I had no idea how interested I was in Chinese electronic malls and the treasure within until Eric H pointed me over here.
HELP WANTED: Eric also caught wind that The Vatican is looking for a little assistance in the demon department. I don’t even think this is something I should crack wise about.
PEOPLE. PEOPLE. PEOPLE. Once again I feel the need to remind all that one should always consider the impact on re-sale when embarking on any remodel project.
ONCE UPON A TIME:
And for the record, we would have cursed any house that handed out brazil nuts and fruit. Because, no.
JOHNNY WALKER VERSION 2.0? While it suggests something of a hipster kind of idea, what can it hurt?
LIFEHACK OF THE WEEK: Because it sure seems like there are an abundance of these everywhere at the moment.
DAFT PENSIONERS: This is the most British story you will read all year.
DEJA VU: I think I saw this movie. It had Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. Only with a ruby instead of an emerald. And it was South America not Myanmar. Also, there are no Hollywood stars in this story. So, yeah. Totally deja vu.
And they used one of my favorite songs of the era. Squee!
