cutest cats
Assholes.

Sometimes my cats are so cute, it annoys me. Especially if they’re being passively cute – you know, just laying in a sunbeam, exposing their bellies – not even trying, but so effwording adorable it just pisses me off and makes me want to stomp them.

It reminds me of when you see a girl who’s so fine, she almost becomes a villain. Like she’s doing it just to torment you. Like, wow you are the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen you asshole.

Is there anyone out there with technical know-how who lives in LA that can help me put together my podcast? You must be house-broken, not say mean things about diet Coke, know how to record and broadcast a podcast, and never trick me into getting addicted to heroin (please).

I’m drinking kiefer and listening to Lil’ Kim. Don’t take it personally.

I’m concerned, a teeny bit, about the phenomena of cute cats on the Internet. Increasingly, I’m seeing how the no-fail excitement of kitty-cams and what-not is impacting, not only the World Wide Web, but TV commercials as well. Word is out, and cat footage has gone viral on our screens like AIDS on the prettiest boys of 1984.

Resident Advisor's podcast: awesome or fantastic?

One of my favorite online destinations for dance music in 2007 is Australia's Resident Advisor. It's great for up-to-the-minute news, interviews, DJ charts and more. But while the writing is a bit off occasionally and the coverage a bit too club-focused, RA really shines through its podcast, an hour long mix by cutting-edge DJ's featuring the best the music has to offer. Recent sets from Alexander Robotnik, Âme, Maurice Fulton, Ripperton, M.A.N.D.Y. and particularly the completely satisfying Dixon mix have quenched my thirst for ever-newer mixes. Best part: it's free (unless you consider registration a cost). Go get it!
