Veloce is Italian for fast, and while it’s a bit of an aspirational title when it comes to today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfa Spider, it’s still a nice name to have. Let’s see if its price means it will at least be selling fast. Along with herpes, our current political climate, and salad frogs, I guess we can add diesel VW Beetle convertibles to the communal list of things entitled “I didn’t ask for that.” Advertisement Yesterday’s 2014 VW Beetle drop top not only had a fuel-sipping if not exactly clean-living diesel, but also a rare standard six-speed stick as compliment. Very few of you complimented the combination however, and at $19,991 even fewer of you lauded its cost of entry, giving the car a sizable 76 percent Crack Pipe loss. Okay, so today I think we need to hone in on what elements of that VW proved to be most egregious. Was it the convertible roof? Not likely. The manual transmission? Probably not. The price? Hmmm, … [Read more...] about At $3,500, Is This Kinda Rough 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce Still A Pretty Slick Deal?
Shrill, the only good show about being a blogger (and particularly a woman blogger, who has to deal with a barrage of daily death threats from strangers over the stupidest posts), is coming back! Yay! I mean, yay to the show coming back, not the death threats! Season 2, which drops January 24 on Hulu, will seemingly focus on what Annie is doing after she quits her alt-weekly job post-newfound-blogging-fame. Her future is somewhat bleak (she’s offered an unpaid internship) but also fun (she has sex in a meadow). And there are, thank god, many, many cute outfits. Advertisement My extremely selfish question is: So is Annie going to work at Jezebel, or what? I know Shrill isn’t totally based on Lindy West’s real life, but there are noticeable parallels. West left her job at The Stranger (a fictionalized Portland alt-weekly on the show) and started to write for Jezebel not too long after. Will we see Annie rewatch Love Actually?! … [Read more...] about Get Ready for Season 2 of The Only Good Show About Blogging
Five months ago, less than a week after her 24th birthday, my fiancée, Shanna, collapsed. No one knew it at the time, but a blood clot had broken loose from her leg and made its way into her lung. Once it was there, it did a number of things: It put pressure on her heart, dropping her blood pressure. It made it almost impossible for her to breathe. And, despite the best efforts of nurses and paramedics and ambulance drivers and ER doctors and a thousand desperate wishes since, by the time an hour had passed, it had killed her. I was there for most of it. There, as she lay on the floor, scared but fighting, while I held her hand and mopped her brow and told her to breathe for me. There when the paramedics fought to keep her conscious and alert. There, with her family, when the emergency room doctors were finally forced to concede that no amount of CPR would make her heart beat again. There when they declared her dead, my partner, my love, my best friend. Advertisement I … [Read more...] about Fake deaths, cheap resurrections, and dealing with real grief
In case you missed this week’s episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, Milo Yiannopoulos is all the internet’s worst attributes made flesh, formed from the dregs of discarded Monster Energy drinks and conjured into existence by the low rumbling of a million “U mad, bros?” In other words, he’s a Breitbart editor. This yawning moral void in Ray-Bans thinks he’s outsmarted the PC police by being gay and an unrepentant nihilistic jagoff, but his “edgy” humor has now come back to bite him as Mediaite reports that Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from his speaking gig at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. for his comments on gay men and pedophilia. Here’s the statement from American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp: Advertisement A little context: Over the years, Yiannopoulos has made comments both oblique and overt on the topic of teenage boys having sexual relationships with older … [Read more...] about UPDATED: Milo Yiannopoulos loses book deal, speaking gig over pedophilia “jokes”
