Thank you for putting an Entenmann’s Extreme Pop ‘Em in my underwear drawer so as to give the appearance that I had taken a delicious, frosty chocolate poo in my Brooks Brothers boxer briefs and then, instead of washing them, had redeposited them in said drawer to wear another day.
It was way funnier than the [...]

Chicag’oween 2009

November 11th, 2009 · No Comments

Now that it’s been two weeks, I guess I’ll write a post about what we did on Halloween this year…
The Crew made its way to Chicago for this year’s festivities, and it turned out to be even more of a party than (at least I) expected.
Ostensibly in town for Tello’s blow-out Chromeo/Crystal Castles/Boys [...]

How To Hammer A Nail With Eyeglasses

March 18th, 2009 · 9 Comments

I thought the final nail in the hipster-as-cultural-movement coffin was the massive country-wide high school social power shift away from preps and jocks and toward hipsters and skaters. Like, every girl under the age of 18 that lives in the greater LA area — regardless of race, creed, or socioeconomic position — looks like Tegan [...]

FROM THE VAULT: MGD Is Terrible and Shitty

March 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

I think PETE used to blog on this thing…
Sure, I could go off on a long diatribe about how much I hate Miller Genuine Draft, but I think it would be better illustrated by this vignette, faithfully transcribed from conversation I had at Hobson’s Choice about a year ago:

Girl 1: Excuse me, [...]

PETE’s Corner

May 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Erstwhile Jo-Tel contributor, PETE, alive and well. And a hero.
From the Network:
Anyhow, last night I thwarted a bike theft in our neighborhood. I was sitting on my porch smoking a cigarette and some chick pulled up to the liquor store across the street and propped her bike up outside without locking it (there’s a [...]

If anybody is still talking about the Hold Steady in 20 years I will kill anything that moves.

So I went on two dates this week: one on Wednesday night, one on Thursday.
Wednesday: Meh. Not necessarily bad. Just meh. The night got off to an inauspicious start when she insisted that McIntosh apples were spelled Macintosh. What was I supposed to do? Just let that stand?? And so yeah, that was probably the [...]

Observations of a person new to, Vol. 2: How to craft a good profile

February 14th, 2008 · 14 Comments

Vol. 1 was just a collection of throwaway observations mainly meant to be funny.
Vol. 2 has a bit more of a focus: writing a good (or fixing a bad) profile. Having been on the site for a month, I feel like I’m pretty much in the swing of things. And, at this point, I consider [...]

A thought I had to myself in considering an email I had sent to a m.c contact earlier in the evening:
“Did I actually fucking use the word ‘accompany’? Did I actually fucking do that?”
I’ve really got a long way to go here.

A post mostly about Mint Juleps

January 21st, 2008 · 7 Comments

Last Wednesday I went to Kristin Cavallari’s 21st birthday party.
Well, I should be clear.
Her birthday was January 5. That night she evidently partied somewhere.
THEN, last weekend, she went to Vegas and had another birthday party.
So this was her third, at least.
It must be weird to be a celebrity and have people you don’t know throw [...]
