omg i love...justin vernon (again).

because this is just a beautiful cover.

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

omg i love...hermés gustaf daniel giersch.

because just look at this little butterball! he's already wearing sweaters and oxford shirts and parting his hair like an upstanding young upper east sider and he is all but stealing this press conference from his mom.

"yes, you, sir, in the corner with the stenopad. my view on the current bailout strategy proposed by the obama administration? well, first off, i'd appreciate if you refrain from referring to the proposal as a 'bailout' strategy...."

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

omg i love...remi gaillard.

because he looks like he's having fun.

omg i love...ed westwick (for all of eternity).

because he continuously outacts everyone on gossip girl - including the adults - and makes it all so effortless. seriously his whole villainous mopey brooding thing was starting to get to me this season, but MAN did it come full circle last night.

Sunday, December 7, 2008

omg i love...andy samberg, jorma taccone, and akiva schaffer

because they make the best SNL digital shorts.

omg i love...jon favreau (still).

because even if he groped a cardboard cut out of hillary clinton and got a lot of bad press for it, he's still hot and he still writes damn good speeches.
sometimes people just get drunk and make mistakes that show up on facebook.

Thursday, December 4, 2008

omg i love...cut off your hands.

because if i could listen to one song right now and only one song this would be it.

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

omg i love...the dude in the red tie.

because he's quick to action.

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

omg i love...brandon flowers.

because, despite his penchant for wearing feathered blazers, he's really fucking hot and "human" is really fucking catchy.

omg i love...alec greven.

because he wrote the best book ever.

Monday, November 17, 2008

omg i love...sean grumman.

because he knows how to handle his clients.

Friday, November 7, 2008

omg i love...david thorne.


because he draws a damn good spider.

omg i love...robert carlock.

because he wrote last night's episode of 30rock, which made me cry real tears of laughter.

"there are only two things i love in the world: everybody, and television."

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

omg i love...bill baird.

because he has a new project called "sunset" whose single "the world is awaiting" is pretty much the BEST THING I'VE HEARD in the longest longest time.

omg i love...the seventh graders from the ron clark academy.

because they are the cutest kids i've seen in a really long time. but mostly because of that adorable boy that does a little freestyle halfway through the video.

omg i love...jason tusman.

because he has a pretty face and does a spot on miley cyrus impersonation. also he sometimes takes okay photographs.

omg i love...david letterman (for the millionth time).

because i just can't handle how amazing he is when he interviews the stars of the hills.

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

omg i love...hydrogen and boost.

because these are fighting words.

omg i love...whoever is doing campaign ads for obama/biden.

because they used my favorite song of 2007 in this kick ass ad.

omg i love...the lovely sparrows.

because this is just a great fucking video.

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

omg i love...leroi moore.

because watching him perform live was an indescribable experience.



dave matthews shows will never be the same. RIP.

omg i love...michael phelps.

because he loves his mom.

omg i love...todd linden.

because this is inspired.

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

omg i love...max dionne (again), brett weiner, and jesse porter.

because they have combined forces to create a parody with political, commercial, and artistic implications that hits every note perfectly.

Monday, August 11, 2008

omg i love...olympic swimmers.

because obviously the relay was incredible and triumphant and brought tears to my eyes, but mostly because HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ALL OF THEM TO HAVE SUCH RIDICULOUS BODIES? like, they're basically chiseled from fine marble and then brought to life with chlorine.





omg i love...greg gillis.

because i can think of no better way to start a monday than with a girltalk jam.

Sunday, August 10, 2008

omg i love...bernie mac.

because he was one hilarious bro, and he will be seriously missed.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

omg i love...the waiter from last night.

because he was just fucking hot.

seriously.

go to the stork, stalk matthew. thank me later.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

omg i love...fleet foxes.

just because.

omg i love...the kooks.

because this sounds better live than recorded.

omg i love...britt daniel.

because he sings "i summon you" while driving past the spot in king's cross where i threw a late night tantrum six years ago after losing my underground pass one fateful night after the backpacker.

omg i love...the wombats.

because they sing on a boat.

omg i love...yeasayer.

because they treat the paris metro like a giant playground.

Sunday, July 27, 2008

omg i love...mr.bill.

because this commercial never gets old.

Friday, July 25, 2008

omg i love...marc horowitz.

because he's nude and anonymous for freedom.

Monday, July 21, 2008

omg i love...heath ledger.

anything i could ever write about heath ledger would just be trite and insignificant. and, after seeing dark knight, there actually isn't much to say, because i'm still thinking of his performance.

genius. that's about it.

Thursday, July 17, 2008

omg i love...harry and jack williams.

because UK version of "roman's empire" is one of my favorite television series of all time (not taking anything away from the american pilot adaptation, of course). the brothers williams are back pitching new concepts, and i could not be more excited.

omg i love...zeljko ivanek.

because he got a much deserved emmy nomination today in the supporting actor / drama category, one of a handful of moves i think the ATAS actually got right.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

omg i love...arthur laurents.

because he is reviving west side story on broadway!

omg i love...matthew patrick brandon.

because he bravely went where neither jessica or i dared go, and destroyed the roach that has plagued our apartment in one valiant fell swoop.


gold stars, matt. gold stars.

omg i love...mayor bloomberg.

because his new york is like a college campus in the summer.



omg i miss new york :*(

omg i love...mike galante.

because he is an international music video celebrity.

omg i love...matt mazzant.

because he came to work today in a full seersucker suit.

omg i love...ted danson.

****spoiler alert**** because he is BACK as arthur frobisher in season two of damages, the best show on television, which means frobisher didn't die in the field when larry shot him, which means there is a whole new season of mystery to unravel, which is amaaaaaaaaaazing!

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

omg i love...jacques torres.

because this recipe for chocolate chip cookies sounds incredible.


he also just looks so passionate in this picture.

he's like, "the dough needs at least 24 hours of chill time for maximum taste! and you need at least 60% cacao content! i'm telling you, man - that is the secret to the perfect cookie!"


omg i love...dan miller.

because he wrote a song for his bride.



there are few things i love more in the world than happy wedding stories from the new york times. especially ones that involve distances, meant to bes, and long lost loves like dan's does.

omg i love...max dionne (again).

because he is proactive.

Monday, July 14, 2008

omg i love...josh peck.

because he absolutely kills it in "the wackness."

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

omg i love...rich sommer.

because his blog is adorable. i have watched the video of his kid blabbering nonsense at least 100 times.

omg i love...kevin linehan.

because is the consumate professional older brother.

Monday, July 7, 2008

omg i love...jay-z.

because he has creative balls. sure, his performance of "wonderwall" totally blows. but at least he's trying different things. would chris martin ever walk on stage and bust out with "it was all a dream! i used to read word up magazine!" as an intro to "clocks" ?

doubtful.

omg i love...will from real world:hollywood.

because he fake cried on real world to convince his girlfriend that he was apologetic about cheating on her. fake cried! like, went into the bathroom and forced tears and then came back to the table all forlorn and droopy-faced. it's the kind of move that pretty much defines dbag, yet...it also pretty much defines so bad it's good.


omg i love...biz markie.

because every time i see a commercial for the wackness, i'm reminded how incredible "just a friend" is.

omg i love...the guy at the jetblue counter at gate A-22.

because he let me on my plane after the doors were shut because i was stupidly across JFK watching nadal/federer masterpiece theatre in the sports bar at the main jetblue terminal not realizing that i had to take a shuttle to my gate and when i showed up they were done with boarding but i begged and he showed mercy.

Sunday, July 6, 2008

omg i love...floyd.

because it is the best bar i've been to in a really long time. i know a bar is not an actual "him," but the owner is a bro, and the name floyd is masculine, so it still fits with this whole OMG theme.

anyway, walking into floyd's is like walking into the basement of your grandparents' house: dim lighting, exposed brick, crown moulding, antique-y looking furniture, randomly displayed cheap plastic trophies collecting dust, a motherfucking bocci ball court in the back, and zero pretention.


if this bar were in los angeles, it would probably be on a ghetto sidestreet off santa monica in hollywood with no signs or windows or exterior markings, filled with cahuenga corridor hipsters wearing fedoras and polka dots and too much black eyeliner, while a gruff bouncer stood outside turning people away, and everyone talked about how "new york" the whole place felt. aka, totally annoying and unauthentic.

omg i love...mr. w.

because this might be one of the most genius commercials ever created. it's like watching the sixth sense for the first time, and getting to the reveal, and then suddenly everything makes sense, and you go back and watch the whole thing again with your newfound knowledge of what is actually going on, and you're like, wow. someone really put their thinking cap on for this one.

Saturday, July 5, 2008

omg i love...my little brother.

because he is basically a prototype for awesome.

omg i love...john durland and bj markle.

because they saved my life. the premise seemed simple: go to brooklyn heights and watch the fireworks crowd-free from the rooftop of john's picturesque brownstone apartment. the catch: said rooftop was only accessible via a tiny ladder of death leading up to a small crawlspace opening of death. then, of course, there was climbing the great wall of death to get up to the landing. let's be honest: athletic ability and coordination are skills i admittedly lack. but couple these shortcomings with the fact that it was raining (which made all outdoor surfaces slick) and i was wearing flops and a white sundress and you get me, at the top of the aforementioned ladder of death, trying desperately to figure out how to get through the crawlspace and down without falling, slipping, destroying my dress, or accidentally flashing cooch to john, bj, or my brother and his girlfriend, who were waiting patiently at the bottom of the ladder, watching my panic attack with a mixture of amusement and disbelief. i would never have made it to the roof without these good samaritans' help, and for that, i am grateful.

Friday, July 4, 2008

omg i love...the leprechaun.

because no one knows quite what he is...just a shadow? a gold digger? or a crackhead who got a hold of the wrong stuff?



this clip is like two years old but the "amateur sketch" of the leprechaun never fails to amuse.

Thursday, July 3, 2008

omg i love...maddox.

because this might just be the best page in the universe. especially this part. my theory in life is: if you're going to be an asshole, at least be clever and funny about it. because then i'll kind of have to love you, despite your asshole tendencies, because you're entertaining. maddox is entertaining.

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

omg i love...jim williams.

because he has amazing taste. i never read "midnight in the garden of good and evil" and i know he was allegedly accused of murder and all, but the mercer-williams house is incredible.

omg i love...the boys who work at the vendue inn.

because they were the definition of southern hospitality, and they all had adorable accents, and they called me "ma'am."

Friday, June 27, 2008

omg i love...david letterman (still).

because he's just fucking brilliant.


mary-kate olsen: i'm so tired; i flew in yesterday.
letterman: is that right? i've been here since '78.

Thursday, June 26, 2008

omg i love...rod aissa.

because he cares about my health and well being.


omg i love...mehar sethi.

because he makes me cry real tears of laughter. all the time. also, he has sublime fashion sense. you can't really tell from this picture; you'll just have to trust me.



more mehar antics: http://www.calculustopics.com/

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

omg i love...scott neustadter.

because he's just adorable. and because i can't wait for 500 DAYS OF SUMMER to be released, because it is one of the greatest scripts i've ever read. and i love joseph gordon-levitt a little bit for giving props to scott. actually, i love joseph gordon-levitt a lot, but for other, dirtier reasons best saved for another post entirely.

omg i love...explosions in the sky.

because the world is a better place when their music is playing in the background. every little thing seems more meaningful, every thought more dramatic, every beat lifted from the big screen.

if i had just one song to listen to for the rest of my life, it might just be "your hand in mine."




omg i love...joe arpaio.

because he won't stand for shaq's embarrassing kobe-bashing freestyle, and is thus taking away shaq's deputy badge (http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/25354019/). but mostly because he is described as "best known for feeding jail inmates green bologna, clothing them in pink underwear, and making them work on chain gangs." i don't know why i find that funny, but i do.




Monday, June 23, 2008

omg i love...mike spinella.

because he has extremely good taste.

http://www.spinner.com/category/mp3-of-the-day/

omg i love...james mcavoy.

because he has the best accent ever. seriously, i could listen to him read the phone book and still be enthralled.

Thursday, June 19, 2008

omg i love...the u.s. senate.

because they have a tradition called SEERSUCKER THURSDAY, which is legit my wet dream.



"in the years before air conditioning made summertime washington bearable, senators from the south shed their heavy-wool black frock coats for lighter linen and cotton garments. seersucker suits became widely popular because they retained their fashionable good looks despite the frequent washing that humid summers made necessary. in the late 1990s, mississippi senator trent lott decided the time had come to revive a long-forgotten senate sartorial tradition. he selected a 'nice and warm' day in the second or third week of june to be designated seersucker thursday."

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

omg i love...josh levin and john swansburg.

because they took the time to dissect the aforementioned michele tafoya / kevin garnett interview.

the result is "certified" genius: http://www.slate.com/id/2193863/

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

omg i love...the boston celtics.

because they simply dominated. and because i've always loved doc rivers since his knicks days. and because turning a .293 winning percentage into a .805 championship year is pretty impressive. but mostly because kevin garnett gave michele tafoya an amazing postgame interview.

"what are you gonna say now? what CAN you say now?" - kevin garnett


Monday, June 16, 2008

omg i love...woody tondorf.

because he has more fun at work than anyone i know.



on second thought, maybe this entry should actually be "omgihatehim" ....

omg i love...david letterman (again).

because his interviews with the cast members of "the hills" just keep getting better and better. i almost choked from laughter after he called spencer "a showbiz visionary." true story.



http://www.wwtdd.com/post.phtml?pk=8021

Friday, June 13, 2008

omg i love... tim russert.

because he was a gem of a politico, and he always kept me informed without making me feel stupid, and i will seriously miss his today show commentary, especially in this election year.



RIP

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

omg i love... mr. right.

because he does what he does, you know, he's a producer. he gets girls. and he's pressing charges. it's not his fault he knows how the business is run.

http://gawker.com/tag/personal-ads/?i=392686&t=cash+waving-craigslist-pl





Monday, June 2, 2008

omg i love... rafael nadal.

because he has gone undefeated in his last 25 matches at roland garros. twenty-five. ridic.

omg i love... michael de zayas.

because he founded neighborhoodies. which is currently where all my paychecks go.

my latest creation:



after my next paycheck: a pencey prep hoodie. watch out.

http://www.neighborhoodies.com

omg i love... mike stroud and evan mast.

because they just kill it every time. it is utterly impossible for me to put into words how fucking obsessed i am with ratatat. we were first introduced in the fall of 2005 via the single "cherry," and, since then, we've been in a deeply committed relationship that just keeps giving back; every single they put out is somehow more amazing than the last.

music video for the newest jam "mirando" -



new album - LP3 - comes out july 8th. who's counting the days with me?

omg i love... sameer mishra.

because he's smart. seriously, i don't even know what "guerdon" is, let alone how to spell it. kudos, kid.
