A run-of-the-mill pretentious boozy art fag insufferably and boozily living in San Francisco that doesn't pay any attention to art or culture anymore and just watches his Tivo with his opposite-married husband and has begun to intensely love college football.

On Iain (M.) Banks, 1954-2013

How delightful to see that Choire is a fan of Iain M. Banks! I always seet The Culture as actually being a form of aristocracy where the only the Minds "born" are really able to have any political, military, or economic power. It is an extremely benevolent aristocracy, though.

On January Without Alcohol: Two Thirsty People Explain

My friends who do this call it "Januwagon" which I think is pretty kicky.

My birthday is in January, so, Januwagon pisses me off to no end when my friends won't join in a black-out pub crawl. Grrrrrr.

On Someone Watched "Wall Street" So You Don't Have To

He looks v. yummy in photos, but in real life looks way too thin and gawky. Maybe if he gets a muscly super-hero role and packs on some beef, he might be more attractive.

But, wwhat will the post-cool landscape look like? - feels like pseudoanthropological anxiety.

On Cars, Emergency Rooms Kill White People A Lot Less

I would have to say that perhaps part of this is due to the fact that minorities may engage in jaywalking activities far more than non-minorities.

On We're Winning for Jesus Against Big Government and Socialist Firefighters!

I think all fire fighting should be handled by churches. Especially Christian Scientist churches who, rather than applying water to a burning home, pray that the building stop burning, since building combustion is just a wicked illusion.

On The Second Worst Supergroup Of All Time

So, the English altnertive/dance supergroup 'Electronic' does not merit a mention on either list???

Electronic combined members, at various times, from New Order, the Smiths, ABC, the Doves, Pet Shop Boys and Kraftwerk, for pete's sake!
