The perfect pumpkin spice latte
Nonfat Venti 3 pump (it’s normally 5 pumps, this makes it less sweet, not to mention less orange.) Perfect if you like these things but hate the sweetness. (Why does everything have to be so sweet, anyway?) This is probably sacrilege but when I get Starbucks I always get a Venti and save the second half in the fridge for the next morning.

adrianeq: Whenever someone mentions Olivia Wilde — you know, that most beautiful woman in the world — I think of the cartoonishness of childhood, of being on the bus to tennis practice behind her and Zoe in the eighth grade and listening to her coach another girl — Sidney, maybe — about the… Not to change the subject, but I found Olivia Wilde’s blog a few months ago and it’s...
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps: A Parade of Goofs
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps won the weekend on its way to (almost certainly) winning a few Razzies. It’s by far the worst movie I’ve seen in a theater this year. But that’s boring. What’s not as boring are all the crazy many plot holes and super goofs in this movie! Here are just a few me and viewing partner Katie Bakes (who didn’t hate the movie, for the record)...
I did an interview with Gelf Magazine about The...
a movie/subject about which I am exxxxpert, in order to promote Gelf’s next Non-Motivational Speaker Series, which will be about bad movies, and where I will do a presentation about The Room. It’s free and in DUMBO and always a fun time (and on September 30th, one week from tonight.) Interview here, event info here.
Introducing for the very first time: Vulture!
According to the New York Times, a brand new site called Vulture launches tomorrow night. It’s funny ‘cause I swear I’ve been writing for that site for at least three years. Some NY Mag publicist should get a bonus for excellence in placing a regular old redesign in the paper of record as some kind of news event.

"Stuck on a boat with Train"
“What is a terrible nightmare version of hell that I’ve actually already imagined before on a day I forgot to take my Klonopin?” BZZZZZZ. Wrong!: What is actually happening on the Best Week Ever cruise.
RIP Bloglines, the First Blogger's Little Helper
Bloglines, for many their first RSS reader, is shutting down. I actually feel a tinge of weird sadness over this, though maybe it’s just nostalgia for a time when I felt super on top of everything. Also, the little electric thrill of seeing that your favorite blogs had new posts, back when they were new? (“Oooh, must read this Old Hag post before doing any more work! There’s...

The Onion Article I Wrote In My Dream Last Night
“Report: 48 Percent of Blogs Infested With Bed Bugs” It was extremely funny in the dream, but now, no. It reminded me of when my old intern went to work for The Onion in 2006 and I kept sending him ideas for him to pitch if he wanted because what was I going to do with Onion pitches. There were a bunch but I only remember two: Op-Ed: “If It’s Yellow, Let It...
