Don’t let the door hit ya…

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Well it’s about time!! Myron Cope is dead!! I’ve been waiting for this day since I first moved to PGH lo those many years ago.  Call me evil, but I did a dance of joy that I will never have to hear that accursed voice again.  (A brief lesson — Myron was a famous local […]

Birthday Hotting

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

Hey! It’s Donal’s birthday, people! Show some luv! Donal had a tv pilot all lined up to go last fall, but I think it got effed up by the damn writers.    Naturally if there’s any other Donal-velopments, you’ll hear about em here first.

Bridezilla and The Tacky Monster

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

On Sunday I went to a “Bridal Fair” with my engaged friend Cheri. Well. Well, well. I’d never been to one of these things before in my life. It’s hard to describe. Now that it’s almost March, if you’re getting nostalgic for the display of crass consumerism and greedy mobs of high-fructose corn syrup-addled Americans […]

A Fistful of Crawford

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

There are only 31 shopping days left until Joan Crawford’s birthday! And just in time there are two new goodies for me to covet. Not The Girl Next Door. A new biography of Joan by Charlotte Chandler. Granted, I’ve already read (and own) tons of Crawford bios, but I am still very keen on getting […]

Sharpe’s Strumpet

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Hrmm…I was about to send out an SOS (as in “Seen Our SeanBaby??) because I haven’t seen hide nor hair of Sean in ages, and can’t recall the last time that I heard about any decent upcoming projects for him. But a trip to a fansite quickly reveals what he’s been up to: he was […]

Monday, February 18th, 2008

It’s the most wonderful tiimmmmeee of the yeeeaarrrr…The 3rd Annual Marty Awards! Unlike those other awards broadcasts, our show was never in any danger of being canceled thanks to some ingrate writers! Writers, pah! You think we pay our writers?!? AND we bring you all the awards that matter a week before our competition! As […]

Drive-By Wallpapering: By Request

Friday, February 15th, 2008

Last week Loupy asked for it, (what? You people don’t like Russell??) and this week I’m giving it: Josh Brolin wallpapers. This was rather challenging, because Josh has not been famous enough long enough to have any nice portfolios of quality photos out there. But I did my best with what I had, and it […]

Up For Grabs

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Dude, I’m goin’ to He…I mean, my workplace has finally caved to my nagging and provided me with a brand new cheap-ass shitty DELL computer for use at the office. For once, getting a Dell is a good thing. Previously, I had to tote my albatros…uh…big, heavy 15-inch PowerBook to and fro, and it was […]

Zap!

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

I have static electricity clinging to the static electricity that’s stuck to my static electricity!  Auuuugh!!! Had plans to go to the office today, but screw it, I’m taking a snow day.  And that, in a nutshell, is why winter is good.  Think I’ll bake some brownies…can someone explain to me the difference between ganache […]

Idle hands are whose workshop?? Click for mega-size, and GooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo Rusty!! Have a good weekend.

My Other New Friend

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

Though I still mourn the grievous death of Diet Vanilla Coke (no, Vanilla Coke Zero ain’t the same), at long last something has come along to help fill some of that void and take the pain away — Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper! Behold my new fizzy beverage companion! When I spotted it on the […]

My New Friend

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Not a gift this time, I got it for myself. Isn’t it so beautiful?? My old iPod mini actually still works just fine, but I was basically just getting tired of how heavy it is (comparatively.) I’d stopped taking it along on walks and stuff because the weight of it would always yank the earphones […]

Two Dozen

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Remember Dozen Cupcake shop?  I hope you do, and if you live in PGH and haven’t been yet, shame upon thee!!  Well, the good people of Dozen have just opened Dozen Bakeshop in the Lawrenceville area.  While the original store only sells cupcakes, the new bakeshop sells everything else…brownies, muffins, eclairs, pie, cinnamon rolls, you […]

Art Therapy

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Something I made while I was feeling sad a few days ago. You guys just have to understand how fond I am of The Joker (I took my mid-90′s fandom of Harley Quinn a bit too much to heart, I guess), how much in love I was with the idea of Heath AS The Joker, […]
