  • Am I the only one who thinks it’s silly that people are worked up over this picture of Lourdes goofing off with mom’s famous cone bra?  Didn’t most of us engage in some version of this silliness when we were 15? (Minus the tweeting the picture part, of course.) (HuffPo)
  • I never tire of reading celebrities’ backstage riders. The list of requirements just for Katy Perry’s driver is staggering. (Pajiba)
  • A lady gave birth on the subway. (The Frisky)
  • Pesident James Buchanan was totally gay .(Time)
  • This rundown of the Ten Worst People on Reality TV is particularly amusing and on point, and—on a personal note—horrifying, because I am familiar with each and every individual mentioned. Also: Andy Cohen gets burned. (Vulture)
  • On the one hand: whatever works. On the other hand: Eww! (Buzzfeed)
  • A bunch of nuns riding around in a bus campaigning against Romney. (Daily Beast)
  • On October 25, a bunch of us annoying Oberlin types will be partying like it’s 1986 when the recently reunited Bitch Magnet play their first New York show in 20 years. (The AV Club)
  • “Come on Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners is 30 years old this week. 30! I remember those baggy denim street urchin overalls from the video like it was yesterday. (Mental Floss)

      Coming here to say the very same thing. It’s disheartening and increasingly common. Everywhere.

  6. Hee! I’m an annoying Oberlin type, too (1987). So happy to be following your (very entertaining) new venture. Good luck!

    Lovedloved Dexie’s Midnight Runner and loved Ryan Gosling’s homage to them in NYC last Summer when he turned into a Street Fighting Stopping Man .

    Don’t you think it is a little sad that the cone bra vest seems to be too small for Lourdes? God, If I were her age and my mom wore a size smaller than me…..
