He Who Must Not Be Cuddled

Sure, I like Harry Potter as much as the next immature, over-grown manchild…

But maybe THIS:

… is one step too far.

Behold! The Harry Potter Reborn Doll Collection!

Enjoy infantilizing your favourite characters, as they simultaneously warm your heart and haunt your dreams.

Ughh. “Obliviate!”

Or, as Kevin Smith is fond of saying, “Forgetticus!”


Amy Winehouse 1983-2011

July 24, 2011

The 27 Club has a new member…

Amy Winehouse was found dead overnight in her London apartment, from what police are still calling “unknown causes”.

Hmm… where’s a News of the World journalist when you need one to hack her phone and fill us in on the last dealer she called?

Sad perhaps, but no great shock – the poor woman has been committing a long, slow case of suicide in front of a paparazzi lens for years it seems. If the anti-drug lobby ever wanted a new, note-perfect case study, they sure as hell have one in Winehouse.

But how could anyone have seen this coming???

For my part, I blame Pete Doherty. But then, I blame Pete Doherty for every drug-related crime in the U.K (cue the ‘Try to make me go to Rehab’ jokes).

A prodigious talent who could have made so much more of herself, here’s a reminder of Winehouse at her peak:

A reminder kids: just say no to crack, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and valium.

Definitely just say no to taking them all at the same time, at least.

Amy Winehouse, dead, at 27 years of age.

Her beehive hairdo was 6.

Rest in peace, Amy.

Cos the only thing worse than an asshole…

… is an asshole with a sense of entitlement.


‘The Office’ as a standard 80’s sitcom

Don’t know about you, but it only took me a few bars before the ‘Family Matters’ theme smacked me across the face and rocketed me back to 1989.

Scary accurate, huh?
