On Benzos And Opulence: At The Marrakech Film Festival

Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs and Valium (diazepam) is just one of them. Also, good luck trying to kill someone with Valium -- you'd need a Mason jar full of pills and even then you'd probably need to augment it with something else.

On Chains Evil

Also, don't forget, Papa John Whatshisface just hosted a fund-raiser for Romney. I think I read it on Buzzfeed, or whatever that is.

On Future Brooklyn: The Dadvorcé Mancave

I don't know if it translates, but this is what's happening in D.C. It is pretty sad!

On I Have Thoughts About Commenting Systems!

I feel like my low-number license plates are being revoked from a car I hardly ever drive. But I guess Choire knows what he is doing.

On The Man Who Makes Money Publishing Your Nude Pics

I hadn't even heard of the site before I read this article, but I have to wonder if maybe some of these shrieking & indignant 6-digit Awl commenters (welcome!) are actively refusing to learn from experience (their own or others') on the grounds that the guy offering the lesson might be a creep.

If you're at a party, or in bed, or wherever, and someone pulls out a B-berry and starts taking pictures of everyone and uploading them to FB, nobody complains to the photographer or asks him to delete any files containing your likeness. I do, but I'm old and weird and I'm not terrified of confronting people. Most people don't. And somehow Moore is duty-bound to self-censor but your friend with the i-phone is not? How does that begin to make sense?

On Shut Up, Long Island

My 87 year-old grandparents are in their 90s, and dead, so it could be worse.

On Joe Lieberman, Worst Person Ever, Pimps Book in NYC Tonight

I once saw him and his wife at the Ikea in Virginia on a Saturday. I'm assuming they didn't walk there, so he's full of shit on this subject, too.
