On Ask Polly: I Am Severely Chafed By My Gentle, Compassionate Boyfriend

Moral of the story: Bad pants = Dealbreaker.

On Norm Macdonald Is 50 But Mostly I Love This Joke

He's Canadian, so his conservative opinions probably still puts him to the left of Paul Wellstone.

On The Top 5 iOS7 Ringtones

I always like to punk my friends by changing their ringtones to "Speakers Going Hammer" by Soulja Boy when they're not looking.

On What You'll Be Listening To All December

Shouldn't the EP be rather called "Cinco Canciones Españolas"? Either/or, I remain disappointed that Bejar hasn't released a record with "KISS" as the title.

On Dudes Finally Getting Wise To Razor Blade Con

When it comes to shaving I always think of William S. Burroughs and despite how deep into junk he got, the daily ritual of shaving is the only thing that kept him from going completely over the edge... And when it comes to William S. Burroughs I always think that he shot and killed his wife playing "WIlliam Tell".

On Malcolm McDowell Is 70

@Julia duMais Conversely, I think on Roger Ebert's first date with his wife, he mentioned that he didn't like *A Clockwork Orange* and she totally flipped out on him and questioned both his subjectivity and manhood as a Pulitzer Prize winning critic?

On It's Not Beer That's Making You Unsightly, Fatty

All that yeast though. I've always felt that drinking a pint of beer is like eating a loaf of bread.

On Arto Lindsay Is 60

I was introduced to Arto at a party and more than being a musician I long adored, he was the nicest dude. We chatted for a short while and that he surprised me by shouting hello to me from across the street a few days later is an anecdote I will tell my robot grandchildren.

On I'm Nobody: Eve Sedgwick After Death

She will be forever missed. I remember the quiet shock of learning that she was straight & married in her NYT obit. It was like finding out that Norman Jewison isn't Jewish.
