Nadja - When I See The Sun Always Shines On TV →
Because you always wanted to hear sludgy doom-metal versions of a-ha, Elliott Smith, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, and a Kids in the Hall song from Brain Candy, not to mention a version of Slayer’s Dead Skin Mask that makes the original sound like it was performed by a barbershop quartet.
Why Did No One Inform Us Of The Imminent Death Of... →
So soon? The Onion is back up for sale: It appears that in America the very business of published news is in the midst of widespread atrophy, and now carries forward as does a sickly and aging man, coughing up blood and gasping for breath and bearing the pronounced stench of inevitable failure.

I don’t know which I like more, the brutal and hilarious mockery of the Shatner reading of Palin’s most recent exit speech, or the more brutal drubbing given to her July 3 speech by way of a somehow and oddly sincere Vanity Fair editorial team. [via burley & gruber]

Oh Starbucks, what are you doing to me?
I like Starbucks. Yeah, sure, it’s a bit burnty, and yeah, sure, it’s a bland chain experience and yeah they’re everyfuckinwhere and yeah it’s cool to hate on em, but I find their espresso decent and there usually aren’t weird crazy talky people around when I try to work there. Don’t get me wrong: I hate that they call some bullshit caramel turd a “macchiato” when that’s already an existing drink...
