273. Boner Ghost

In honor of SXSW starting up next week, here’s a moment from SXSW 2010, courtesy of Seth Meyers. He does a spot on impression of Will Forte (who was close to nabbing an Academy Award nomination for his role in Nebraska) and talks about the boner ghost from Albuquerque.

*Note to self: Watch out for that Boner Ghost the next time you’re in Albuquerque. Also, watch out for Will Forte.


272. Oscars, Baby

If you thought the Oscar-nominated films were good this year, wait until you see the child parodies:

*Note to self: Find a kid and make him/her a child actor.

271. Late Night with Seth Meyers


Just found out that Stefon will be making an appearance on the upcoming Late Night with Seth Meyers. This makes me extremely happy. That is all.

If you’re not familiar with Stefon and Seth’s relationship – they ended up getting married on Bill Hader’s last night on SNL. Here’s a Stefon montage:

*Note to self: Try out all those clubs with DJ Baby Bokchoy!

Yes, Valentine’s Day is my birthday. And, yes, it sucks.

Here’s why Why My Valentine’s Day Sucks More Than Yours story on Tapestry. You’ll get to hear me complain some more.

*Remind my future husband that he can’t give me a birthday gift and then also use it as my Valentine’s Day present.

269. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Kate Spade

I’ve started writing Tapestry stories during New York Fashion Week. Please follow along and find out which designers showed, who arrived, and what trends are popping up for Winter/Fall 2014:

*Note to self: Start investing in some nice clothes – like stuff not from Old Navy. (I love you Old Navy but I think it’s time to upgrade)

268. A Shrimp’s Life

Kind of dying over these awesome teeny tiny felt creatures created by Hine Mizushima. They all fit in the palm of your hand.

*Note to self: Buy these fabulous creatures on Etsy.

As we gear up for this weekend’s Golden Globes, let’s take a look at one friendship that trumps all the others in Hollywood. Yep, I’m talking about BFF’s Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. This article by Vulture.com summarizes their union perfectly. Plus, the duo has updated the rules for their awards show drinking game – so good luck getting out of bed on Monday.

Sidenote: Did you know Tina Fey gave her second child (Alice) the middle name Zenobia? I looked it up and apparently she’s either named after a 3rd century Arabic Queen or a Swedish built Challenger-class RO-RO ferry. So, she’ll either grow up to be royalty or the captain of a ship. Pretty much she’ll be awesome.

*Note to self: Start gearing up for the Golden Globes (aka put my local liquor store’s # under favorites).

266. You’re Next Stop

This slow motion video “Stainless, 42 Street” by Adam Magyar (he has a very cool site, you should check it out) captures the essence of waiting for a train in NYC. Granted I avoid this stop like I do Times Square but it’s probably the best place to take a video like this. Does anyone else think the music sounds just like the music from the dinner scene in Sleep No More? Creepy yet it grabs your attention.

*Note to self: Go see Sleep No More again. #maskenthusiast

265. Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh

This spectacular video makes me want to go buy some khakis and hit the African desert (well, with lion whisperer Kevin Richardson, of course). Wait, isn’t that the name of one of the Backstreet Boys? Thank God that Kevin Richardson isn’t roaming around looking for lions. Can you imagine that guy singing the boy band version of “The Lions Sleeps Tonight?” Definitely a #deadmanwalking. Thankfully the zoologist Kevin Richardson has the magic touch and has been busy bonding with these beautiful creatures for the past decade and a half. Watch this amazing GoPro footage and see how lions and hyenas really live and what we can do to save them from extinction.

*Note to self: Don’t actually ever wear khakis – ever – especially the pleated ones (unless you want to look like Brenda Walsh circa 1991, in which case, you might as well buy a body suit too).

264. Basically, Everything He Said

I completely agree with Louis C.K. on this one. What happened to just sitting in a room with other people and organically talking (or not talking) to each other? Let’s bring back that eternal feeling of loneliness. Then you can text someone about it later (or at least give it a hashtag). Right?

*Note to self: Next time I’m behind a wheel, pull over and have a good cry. Then pat myself on the back.
