It’s not torture if you don’t say the word

Posted in *dead*, mob deep by Jef on October 23, 2010

With the way pundits and politicians fret over the proper deployment of the word torture, you would think it had a vague definition or something. (It doesn’t.) To help the news people at The New York Times continue to dodge the word altogether, BoingBoing has come up with a Torture Euphemism Generator. Try it! It’s more fun than a barrel of “bothersome toenail solicitations.”

Ellie Kemper kills me

Posted in *dead* by Jef on September 16, 2010

Lately I crush on the new cute girl on the The Office. Her drama teacher in high-school was Jon Hamm, she went to Princeton, Oxford too. Sometimes writes for The Onion and McSweeney’s. And she makes me roffle, which always helps.

America and the Afghan rug trade

Posted in *dead*, news stories by Jef on July 23, 2010

From the Danger Room:

The Pentagon and the Interior Department are about to issue a year-long, no-bid, $7 million contract to Adelphia, New Jersey’s Tremayne Consulting to turn Afghanistan’s storied, broken carpet business into an international powerhouse.

It’s yet another sign of how deeply the American war effort is, um, interwoven with Afghanistan’s economic fortunes.

Creepy 91-year-old woman lives with dead, not with death

Posted in *dead*, news stories by Jef on July 8, 2010

Meet Jean Stevens, a 91-year-old from Pennsylvania — still the creepiest sounding state, next to New Jersey — who couldn’t live with the deaths of her husband and twin sister and so dug up their corpses, fixed them up real nice, and got on with her daily life. Comparisons to Norman Bates in Psycho are warranted, but it should be noted that she DUG THE BODIES UP, and hence is a little creepier in my book. Still though, not as disburbing as watching Vince Vaughn trying to act in Psycho 2.0. WHYY the masturbating scene, movie gods? WHYY.

Yoshihiro Akiyama and the death of the desexualized Asian male

Posted in *dead*, mma by Jef on July 3, 2010

COMEDY. Yoshihiro Akiyama, aka “Sexyama”, reversing decades of problematic representations one weigh-in at a time. (Arianny and Chandella as the gawkers for once instead of the gawkees.) UFC 116, Lesnar vs. Carwin, tonight.
