  • Coming into a restaurant 3 minutes before it closes doesn’t mean you “made it.” It means you’re an asshole who ignores the fact that people have social lives, children, etc. Do all of ya’ll really go about living life just thinking about yourselves?

    Don’t ever do this!

  • As an experiment back in my teenage days, I tried to eliminate all ums, ehs, likes and pauses in my speech. More than anything, I loathed the vagueness and repetition of “I/he/she was like…”, or even just “like”. Hated the way my peers stumbled around every sentence as though they were only partially convinced they should be speaking at all.

    This is a sign of a real fucking jackass. The ums he’s talking about are called parlecons (or, like, something) [citation, umm… needed?].

    Whatever the name for them, they’re pauses in speech created by your brain so that it can process what you are about to say. There’s nothing you can do about it, it’s completely fucking normal and just because you don’t do it doesn’t make you better than your peers.

    (BTW, who, as a teenager, refers to other teenagers as “peers” and apparently expects these peers to be breaking fucking ground with every sentence? Apparently the perviously quoted, friendless but well spoken, don’t forget well spoken, asshole.)

  • Dear Architecture Blog,
This picture is really neat! I think it would be super cool if, in at least one of the photos you post, you link to the fucking author, the fucking wiki or a fucking google maps shot of the building in question… unless one of the four contributors to the blog was in the fucking helicopter holding the camera that took this picture, then you should probably give yourself some credit.
PS: This search query works pretty much the same as your blog and comes with author credits, and sometimes, even bits of information about the buildings to boot.

  • 8 1/2: The Musical?

    God damnit! This is a complete rip off of 8 ½, but they won’t even admit it…

    “NINE” is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Fergie) and his mother (Sophia Loren). The film is directed by Rob Marshall (CHICAGO). The original 1982 Broadway production of “NINE,” with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, won five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

    If you’ve ever seen 8 ½, then you’ll get it right away. The scene with the kids on the beach and the witch-looking chick falling onto the sand, the number of women main characters, “Italia”…. it’s about a director making a movie…. What else do you want?

    Also… is “Nine” like the extra half that 8 ½ was missing? Does Rob Marshall think he’s doing us a favor by turning a movie that was turned into a musical into a movie musical? Questions no one should ever have to ask.

    I’m going to turn Casablanca into a Farrely Brothers musical. That ought to be fucking brilliant. Shit!
