Cholula2

++The Cholula lady looks like she is just tolerating you. Barely.

++Idk what it is but I just feel like cold chillin and listening to R&B all day. With a cold beer. And I don't even like beer!  Anyway, this one's scritchin the scratch while I work...

And Now This

And-now-this-678-body-image-1423103834
++For as long as I can remember, people been talkin bout the SoSoGlos. I'm going to venture a guess that by the by by and by, people will continue to talk about the SoSoGlos. And you can take THAT to Vegas.

++Here's some more wordplay if anyone wants to do anything with it, the name Jennifer Garner kinda sounds like the product "Benefiber."

++How come I can't swipe left on these?

++I've been kind of fascinated with the genetic studies of Ashkenzani Jews since reading that Vanity Fair article about Sergey Brin's former wife researching their greater tendency towards Parkinson's disease. And then I was reading this old Vice article about Elizabeth Wurtzel [above]pointing out that the BRCA gene (common among Ashkenzanis) predisposes them to breast cancer. (It's the same one that Angelina Jolie tested for...) It's not all bad news for the Ashkenzanim, though, after all they've spawned some of the most brilliant and influential minds of our time.

These Paper Bullets!

++I just love when gossip sites say "look away now" or "watch out", ____(insert celebrity name here)___. Like Blake Lively is really at home quaking in her Uggs at the prospect of a new Bronde in town!

++Modern Peaches.

++How lucky were The Bohicas that Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos just happened to be in the audience of one of their shows. They seem to be on the cusp of something, just like Sleaford Mods.

++They See Me Rolin: ..would be my headline for any future article about Rolin Jones,the Woodland Hills-born playwright using Billie Joe Osments Armstrong's music... in a rollicking rockin take on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. And no, I am never NOT going to post that Death Stare clip when given the chance.

++Amazon is testing out these buttons that you put all around yer haus to order supplies on the spot whenever you run out. Between Prime and drones and not ever having to remember or think you can just sit in place drooling and have items drop onto your drooling head. The best part is the comments about dogs learning to press the buttons and ordering large quantities of dog food. But let's get real people, dogs are not going to order dog food! They hate dog food. They will be ordering liverwurst. So get ready to be pelted by drones with Liverwurst, Americans.

Billion Brick Race

Cayu_DATBL-cover-front-FINAL

++I just adored Jason Segal's sit down with Marc Maron for a recent WTF...probably one of the best I've heard. His openness about his battle with alcoholism was refreshing as were his takes on his relationship with co-star Jesse Eisenberg. ("You could play the Captain of a lesser country." Lol.) I don't have high hopes for their DFW movie but now I have to see it? Here are pics of Galco's Market, the old fashioned candy store Maron mentions towards the end of the broadcast.

++I've heard this kind of song many many many times before and still it's kinda fitting the bill today.

The American Religion

++Open Mike Eagle: Haha...I know it probably doesn't seem like I get out much, but lately I recognize EVERY place I see on tv or in commercials. If anything, I get out way too much.

++Do kids still play with real toys? Because if not, they are missing out.

(I'm nostalgic internet, but please don't play me...)

Scruffy Looking Nerf Herders

++I'd be happy with even just one of Martin Newell's AKAs. He worked with a guy who was nicknamed "lol" back in the 80s. That guy knew what was up.

++Girl, YES!

CK9ga78VAAAQL5U
++Should I use this space space to publicly grovel for someone to send me some of dem sold out UMO tix? Uhh yah. They have trashed my heart like a hotel room.

++Sumpin intriguing about this portrait. Not sure what.

++Linklater, who I will link to Now, is in talks to direct The Rosie Project about an uptight professor who formulates a questionnaire to find a second date. That greyhaired Dr. EHarmony's like "Harumph!", for sure.

Quickies

++Guess I'm late to the game on this one because it already has a ton of views. It's a numbers game, a thought provoking kinda video despite the implication of violence...the stats of being a young hip couple.

++Maybe everything and every one is related to Genghis Khan.

++Really rootin for Leo to find the hot blonde models at the end of this film. That's what happens, right?

Street Legal

Arrowbd_weco_25light_masked

++Plan to spend today researching whether there's a law against hitching one of these to your rear bumper to ward off pesky tailgaters. What a caper it will be if I can pull this off.

++I saw Ant Man over the weekend and hands down my favorite part of the movie was when he went subatomic and was swimming in a world of fractals. Was tbt the live action meets animation of mee childhood. Felt kind of European for a big budget American movie. This video from my sidebar bbs UMO seem to fit into this discussion.

++I've had that damn Counting Stars song stuck in my head this morning. Didya know that Ryan Tedder has written a bazillion cajillion songs earning him the title of "The Undercover King of Pop"..and that he co-owns a chain of bbq restaurants with JTims? American celebrities are always trying to start bbq related side businesses. Like the next square on the fame gameboard.

++It was a little unexpected to read that Pachamama is typically represented in the form of a maltipoo, which I thought was a more modern breed of dog, but you do you, maltipooo.

++You say hallyu, I say Hell Yes! That would be real charming to walk around saying at KCON if you're not Korean #protip.

The Power To Change

CKgKPUlXAAEiaAz
++This is a little abstract/high concept but go with me here. My ideal romcom would be one in which Ruth Reichl's tweets meet up and marry Richard E. Grant's tweets.

Ed98c013-4071-48e5-b3a0-815186390c05-2060x1236

++I haven't actually heard any of the new Muse, but who am I to take away a critic's fun.

++So which is it. Slowness, or Energy? Tell me what to do!

++Tough one.
