On Anne Rice Gives It to the Publishing Industry Straight

Damn, I was looking forward to another insane rambling monologue from her, like her notorious Amazon freak out of 2004 :(

On Matt Cherette Is Going To Move To New York City

I think ONTD once crashed the entire LJ server once, which is a pretty big achievement (I think it was when Britney shaved her head - am I wrong? Despite having lived some of my finest moments of teenage angst on El-Jay, I'm too old to know.. I think the average ONTD commenter/contributor is about 14..) I'm always surprised that they haven't found some way to commercialise it as it must take a lot of time and it's insanely popular, and the moderators seem devoted to it.

On Dave Eggers, Wyndham Lewis and Hate

Damn, only 211 hits for 'I hate Martin Amis', who I reserve all my literary hatred for :(

On A Musical Compendium Of Current Popular British Shagging Stories

I'm sitting here in Knifecrime Island, eating apple streusel and free antibiotics. Just got a free chest x-ray this morning. I do have to leave the house and gingerly pick through diseased pigeons fighting over fried chicken bones and then get on the bus where a teenager is longing to murder me for no good reason every morning, but this is all still better than the time I saw a man shitting and eating a sandwich at the same time in the subway (New York) once.

On Grizzly Bear vs. Polar Bear: There Can Only Be One (Maybe)

What about wolves v bears? I read on Wikipedia that when wolves move into an area with black bears and brown bears, they're usually too scared to fuck with the black bears but will kill brown bears.

And although you just want them to be like, 'Fuck it, let all of us apex predators just get along', e.g.: http://www.clevercaption.com/uploadedImages/bud/_polar-bear-hugging-wolf.jpg

It's more likely that this will happen: http://lovestohunt.com/images/bear_and_wolf_john.jpg

On So Long, Hummer!

The developing world ambassador who arrives at the embassy I work across every day is driven around in a bubblegum pink, stretched Hummer. He turns up usually around 3 in the afternoon, honking furiously at small children from the local kindergarten to get out of his way, and then escapes inside with at least 5 bags of McDonalds at a time. One time I saw him in an upstairs window, lost in his daydreams, smoking cigarettes one after the other in quick succession and dropping them on the people walking by below without a care in the world.

But does any of that matter when you see one of these:
