Considering the amount of media availableonline and the free network HD feeds over Clear QAM, I’ve recently considered disconnecting my cable connection. There are four reasons I haven’t yet: Food Network & HGTV (Petra’s faves), Bravo (for West Wing reruns primarily) and Comedy Central/MTV for Daily Show, Colbert, and The CollegeHumor Show.
Shame on you, Time Warner Cable. You have the worst customer service of all time, you’re raising your rates, and you wont give MTV Networks their fare share.
“It’s not just the pens — it’s the paper on the exam table, the tongue depressor, the stethoscope tags, medical calipers that might be used to interpret an EKG, penlights,” said Dr. Robert Goodman, a physician in internal medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.
In 1999, Dr. Goodman started No Free Lunch, a nonprofit group that encourages doctors to reject drug company giveaways. “Practically anything you can put a name on is branded in a doctor’s office, short of branding, like a Nascar driver, on the doctor’s white coat,” Dr. Goodman said.
Not to be outdone by Petra’s dad, my mother has asked me to edit this post.
My Mom: DID YOU NOT KNOW THAT I AM A LEONARD COHEN FANATIC? i have been listening to him since high school but in the last 2 years i never go a day without listening..we went to his boyhood house in Montreal 2 summers ago (that was the reason for the trip)
Me: No I did not know that. Do you want me to apologize?
My Mom: no i don’t want you to apologize..i’m just informing you so you can mention me in your blog (only kidding)
Time to reboot my brain. I am officially on vacation. I hope to take an unprecidented break from all things Internet. I’m going to L.A. with Petra tomorrow to chill with her family for a while. See you in 2009!
After three weeks of trying to get a leak fixed it is finally getting done. I have called my landlord/super everyday and placed complaints with the city.
When talking to my landlord today he said he might be able to come by later or tomorrow. I told him tomorrow is better because I have to go to a hannukka party tonight and as soon as he heard that he said he that someone would be here in ten minutes.
Moral of the story is always let someone think you are Jewish when dealing with landlords.
Amanda has been having excruciating trouble with her Jewish landlord. I find the whole thing deeply embarrassing. Fuck slum lords of all races and religions, but especially fuck the Jewish ones for perpetuating nasty stereotypes.

We worked pretty hard on this (samples coming next week) and I’m very proud of the album. We do a ton of traveling to sing for strangers and this is a rare opportunity to sing for friends and family. I hope you’ll come [drunk]!
“Hilarious Katrina shirt. Watched some of my friends die, several others are in long-term mental health treatment. Can we maybe do a hilarious “Because Towers Weren’t Meant To Be Built to Heaven” 9/11 t-shirt with a plane? Or a “What Holocaust? Bring Back The Roman Salute!” shirt All are equally funny.”—First Katrina T-Shirt Hate Mail
