Yes, I still dislike Chris Brown


Image and video hosting by TinyPicLike Jay-Z, I am not impressed with Chris Brown or the love for Chris Brown.

As the Florida Primary is about to begin, I realize now how sick I am of Newt Gingrich. I mean, I’ve never really liked the guy but seriously, the stuff he says is actually mental institution admittance criteria. I really like watching the GOP debates because it’s just hilarious and awkward to see them fight one another. It’s also very predictable. That’s why I have established a drinking game —

WARNING: use with extreme caution, you could end up drinking yourself to death

Take a sip every time…

  1. The audience boos/cheers about something that normal people would not boo or cheer for.
  2. Mitt Romney’s taxes are mentioned.
  3. Newt Gingrich attacks the moderator.
  4. There is a reference to three different candidates winning three different states.
  5. Gingrich makes a reference to Ronald Reagan/him being a Ronald Reagan conservative.
  6. Good ol’ Uncle Paul has a confused look of bewilderment on his face -not to be confused with his confused look of not understanding a joke was being made.
  7. Rick Santorum makes a reference to him winning in a predominantly working class Pennsylvania democratic constituency.
  8. Romney mentions that he worked at Bain Capital.
  9. Santorum has the look of utter disgust and confusion on his face.
  10. Space colonies are mentioned.

Anyway, the other day I watched the GOP Florida debate, and pretty much all I gleaned from that was that…

  1. Ron Paul, bless his soul, is probably going to die soon so we shouldn’t elect him.
  2. Rick Santorum should just quit now and save himself money and the inevitable embarrassment of just existing past Florida.
  3. Mitt Romney needs to watch his own ads.
  4. Wolf Blitzer is a BAMF. (Especially compared to John King).
  5. Newsflash, Newt is still a d-bag and his wife is still creepy as hell.

What I really found interesting was that one of the questions asked was “why would your wife be the best first lady?” Okay, am I the only one who thinks that question is just awkward and kind of insulting? It’s like, really? Do we need to know that your Mars Attacks wife plays the French Horn? Should I care? NO. Many people play the French Horn. My own mother plays the French Horn (for serious). How does playing the French Horn make her stand out? How does it even portray her as a person? Are we supposed to like her just because she can play an instrument? Ugh.

I also watched MissRepresentation yesterday and found out that our country SUCKS when it comes to equal representation of men and women in the political process. GAH. I think we’re ranked 90th in the world in accordance to the amount of women in higher political office, which means that we’re behind obvious places like Sweden, and quite surprising places like Cuba. CUBA, PEOPLE. Yeah.

I think it is so unfortunate that women in politics, regardless of the candidate’s wife or the actual candidate, are judged on their outer appearance. And what is even more unfortunate is that women are lumped in two categories, they are either hot, MILFy, and stupid (Sarah Palin) or smart, shrewish, and asexual (Hillary Clinton). This even occurs in the news media with anchors, like those blondes on Fox compared to someone like Rachel Maddow (even though I think she’s prettier than them, and I have proof because I met her in real life when she was just walking down the street and she was dressed casually with no makeup and she was seriously just gorgeous).

It just seriously bothers me.


Golden Oldies


Well, as Meryl Streep won her twentieth golden globe the rest of the crowd went home empty handed, of course. JUST KIDDING. Some of these sad saps won what I like to call the actual best award of the night, best dressed. Here are my picks for best dressed of the night:


Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci

Emma Stone in Lanvin

Shailene Woodley in Marchesa

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

Ariel Winter in Dolce & Gabbana

Halloween Costume Idea #1 -Jezebel.com blogger

I’m sure some of you have heard of the website Jezebel, which talks about fashion, sex, and celebrity culture for women. They’re the ones who got up in arms about Olivia Munn being hired on The Daily Show. And if you watch 30 Rock, Tina Fey spoofed them with a website called “Joan of Snark.” Tee hee.
I was having a hard time trying to come up with some Halloween costume ideas that were original yet not too obscure. I don’t really know how I thought of it, but I kind of like the idea if I do say so myself.
While not everyone has heard about Jezebel, I’m sure many have, including many of my college-aged friends. I know a lot of people who find it informational and interesting, but who also don’t take it too seriously and can laugh about how the bloggers get really passionate about certain things (*cough*Olivia Munn*cough*). I don’t mind Jezebel, in fact, I frequent the website pretty regularly. Yet, I definitely think Jezebel has kind of made itself into a parody of itself, which is sort of hard to understand but I think you’ll get it if and when you go to the site.
Anyway, let’s get on with the costume.  Read the rest of this entry
