Joanne Lucas knowing that Florent would remain open as some sort of diner but not telling anyone, allowing everyone to get all weepy, really pisses me off. I mean, she shut off the fucking gas this week — “I’m sorry, devoted patrons, but we cannot cook you one last plate of french fries! Sob!” — knowing fully well that she was going to reopen on Tuesday. Good show,...
Martha Stewart blogs about her trip to Detroit
“Looks like we’re in Egypt - but we’re really in Detroit!” Hm. I suppose for someone who’s not particularly familiar with the area, Detroit does seem like a very foreign place.
Andrew 1: Knock knock. New York: Who’s there? Andrew 1: 9/11 New York: 9/11 who? Andrew 1: You said you’d never forget. See? It’s not too soon anymore. Great news. [via]
special stories about special people
If you read only one thing today, let it be the Observer profile of Kelly Cutrone. If you read two things today, go with the mentally retarded paralympic swimmer story in the Times.
I have read (alright, skimmed at best) this three times now, and I have yet to find a mention of anything Gawker-related. Everything okay over there?
And now she will disappear in a puff of smoke. →
Honestly, it’s not LIKE a part of Julia died. This is very literal, people.
suck it up, whiney mcbitchnmoan
alexbalk: So Cechin is on vacation for the week, which seemed like a fine idea at the time. Of course, “at the time,” none of us knew that Tyler would be leaving. (Except maybe Tyler.) Anyway, I’m pretty much overwhelmed right now, which, if you’re reading Radar with any eye for correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc., is abundantly obvious. If you see anything glaring, let me know. Yeah,...
Friend: I moved to Park Slope. Me: Did you have a baby? Thing is, I wasn’t trying to be a smart ass. This just crapped out of my mouth. And it was totally stupid and narrow-minded of me. She didn’t necessarily have a baby! She totally could have become a lesbian.
To be fair, it *is* from the whiz who brought us...
Over at Vulture, we’re previewing all the greenlit pilots, digesting their complex plots and spitting out our even more complex analyses (hint: so far, it’s not looking good). Because I’m all about participation, I watched CBS’s Jay Mohr vehicle Project Gary. And by “vehicle,” I mean “black-carbon Big Wheel.” Somebody has got to put that dude down.
I still go to Maya because of this. doree: I was discussing the merits of various bikini waxing places (palaces?) around town, and was reminded of one TODO (that godawful one-thing-a-day feature that Choire mercifully killed as one of his first acts in office) that was actually fun to write. Here’s a little taste: We’ve got to hand it to her—bitch was fast. We barely had time to blink, let...
As I remember it, it was more self-flagellated.

Donnie, How Far You've Fallen From the 'Saw' Films
NKOTB on the Today Show: When Joey McIntyre says, “It’s almost like the last 15 years didn’t happen,” I’m inclined to think he’s referring to Jonathan’s bad-teen mustache, which is just as weak and whispy as ever. Anyhow, I beg to differ with young Joey (he’ll always be the Young One, right?): Judging from the plump desperation of the fans gathered...
OMG: IO Digital Cable has a new commercial! It’s definitely marketing to a different demographic than the first one, that piece of reggaeton genius that implored you to “watch a lot of channels wheneva yo’ able.” Whether or not the new tune gets as deeply embedded in New York’s collective cortex as the original remains to be seen.
She also kept block parties under control
It’s not quite the same as Ricky the Special-Needs Monkey (it’s more awful), but it’s the little details that really struck me as making this one special: Police to meet with Cumberland County DA about puppy’s death On Tuesday, Laurie Caiazzo and her 11-year-old daughter were walking the Pomeranian puppy on Burnham Road. [You know what happens here.] The female pit bull,...
And she's not very tired tonight, either.
I feel like my spam is getting genuinely nice. Maybe I’m just a mixed-up girl who lives in a lonely world of Rolexes and Viagra, but this honestly made me feel a little happy. Hi Dear, how are you today i hope that every things is ok with you as it is my great pleassure to contact you in having communication with you, please i wish you will have the desire with me so that we can get to know...
