Jonathan Safran Foer Won An Award!

Only it was a Moby Award for "Most Annoying Performance by an Author in a Book Trailer."

BWHAAAAAAAAAAA.

Now we wrote about this book trailer mooooonths ago. And srsly, if you watch it, you will feel compelled to scratch your eyes out, put your eyeballs in a bowl and then eat em with a spoon....it's *that* bad. But now I'm actually starting to feel sorry for this annoying schmo. Cause a few years ago everyone loved the shit outta him, and now all everyone does is hate his ass and trade JSFisms...shit, we even have one in our own FIPS diktionary.

Maybe we should invent a new word? Foerdom: After moving through a variety of emotional stages, the act of becoming so bored with JSF and JSF news, one actually begins to feel sorry for the dude.

Does This Count As White Collar Crime?

Thanks for the parking tip, Amber!!!

Do you think it will work for White Collar, the latest in a long line of production crews to map off a five-block radius around my building?

Time Warner: You Suck, Part XVIII

Is it too much to ask for my pay per view to actually work when I really, really need it.

My little turtledove was up early this morning (read: 2:30!!!!!), barfy and stoic. She's really a pro at this point. I've never seen anybody throw up as efficiently or prolifically as my first grader. Could she be bulemic? At seven? Nah. But she is sick, poor dear.

And now we're going to have to miss that field trip to the food coop this afternoon. Too bad, so sad!

Anyway, despite having paid a $10,000 monthly bill to Time Warner just last week, I'm apparently maxed out for pay-per-view.

New South Slope Dog Run

photo: BrownstonerThis one will be way the hell too far my N. Slope'd ass, but it looks a new dog park might be coming to 18th Street and 6th Ave!

"The group South Slope Dog — started by Pamela Brown "after being inspired to do something to improve our community at the inauguration of President Obama" — scored a major victory last week when Community Board 7 approved its petition to turn a portion of the "pocket park" abutting Prospect Expressway into a dog run. As long as they get the okay from the Parks Department, as early as this week, the roughly 3,000-square-foot path of fenced-in grass bounded by the Prospect Expressway, 18th Street and Sixth Avenue will be officially set aside for unleashed canines."

Dog park...Obama...goddammit this story is ripe for making fun of.
