Oh, summer, I HATE YOU SO. I'm pretty sure it was cooler in HELL today, although hell also had/has Sam Winchester in it with his big veiny arms, so you know, possibly a scarier place.
1. I'm pretty sure that by now, everyone and their Mean Girls
-loving sister know that Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail, followed by 90 days in rehab
, which is to say, EPIC ONTD POST IS EPIC. Come on, where else would you like to see these news commented on? Useless, drug-ridden starlets going to jail are ONTD's fucking HOME TURF. Literally.
2. The female staff of The Daily Show issues a counter statement
to that Jezebel article calling Jon Stewart a sexist
. Slate also has something to say about it
, mainly a scathing something against Jezebel.
I have a couple of things in mind about this whole thing: a) Obviously Jezebel's argument was badly articulated, as it targeted the entire TDS staff instead of what it probably meant to target, which is the correspondent male/female ratio. b) The correspondent male/female ration is
a bit worrying, particularly if the best they could come up with is Olivia Munn, who is c) an unfunny Samantha Bee wannabe, which is saddening since the material written for her was pretty awesome (on the second segment), and d) doubtful_salmon
, you are not allowed to comment on this until you stop FROTHING AT THE MOUTH.
3. Ever since Zoe Keating's new CD debuted
, I've been following her reactions to the buyers market, and today she linked on her twitter to a very well-worded article about the nature of copyright and the internet
. The message was along the expected lines of "the machine is broken, but piracy is downright cruel to people who never belonged to it in the first place", which is what Zoe Keating is. I'm sad to hear there were so many torrents, even though it means she's popular.
4. Michio Kaku, an astrophysicist, came to The Colbert Report last night, and got even an incredibly ill Stephen Colbert excited. I mean, INVISIBILITY CLOAKS, YOU GUYS
