"Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they’ve ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case, if they’ve ever crossed the street to avoid a stranger, just in case, if they’ve ever taken the long way home because of the weird guy on the corner, just in case. Ask them if they’ve ever made up a boyfriend to get a guy to leave them alone, if they’ve ever gotten off a train car and moved to the next because you just never know, if they’ve ever shelled out for a cab because men like you were at the bus stop."
This is a great, well-written piece by Emily Heist Moss. Read the whole thing. Especially if you are a man.
I’ve just begun listening to your radio show. I commute to work at night and listen to KTLK, where your show has recently replaced Phil Hendrie in the 10PM slot. I have found you to be an enjoyable and thoughtful personality, that is until last night (Jan 17th)….
Have I posted this before? I don’t care. It’s so funny. (I hope the link works - I’m just listening to this on my ipod so I don’t know if the video above is the same)
Dear Entertainment Weekly,
Thanks so much for puttin’ a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio on the cover of your magazine. I like him, so you can imagine I was sure pleased to see a picture of him on the front of your book! It is nice of you to put pictures of things I like on your magazine front-part. For future reference, here are some other things I like. I like tomatoes, umbrellas (all kinds), some dogs, most cats. There’s a cat in my neighborhood named Speedy I’m awful fond of; maybe you could put a picture of him on your magazine. I don’t know if you’d send a photo-grapher to take a picture of him, or a sketch artist to draw a picture of him, but you’d better be quick ‘cause they don’t call him Speedy for nothing! Oh well. All the blood’s leaving my head now, so I’d better sign off.
