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.

omg i love...mehar sethi.

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 ( 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.

omg i love...mike spinella.

because he has extremely good taste.

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.

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."

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:

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sunday, June 1, 2008

omg i love... yves henri donat mathieu-saint-laurent.

because he is an icon who will be missed.
