Generation Slap

Millennials
There’s a new article on Millennials over at Radar by FREEwilliamsburg founder Robert Lanham.

Millennials are younger. Healthier. They got to do anal in high school. They think updating a spreadsheet while posting to a Twitter account about gossip on perezhilton.com is an essential corporate skill…. An egregious example of generational bias lies in Gen X’s stigma as the “MTV Generation,” a title that was always intended as a pejorative. … Ironically, when applied to the Millennials, who are similarly affected by the Internet, possessing a short attention span becomes an accolade. They just call it multitasking.

O'Reilly Flips Out — The Remix

Hillary's Base

We’ve been to West Virginia many times and are happy to report that there are lots of smart, progressive people there. Despite what you’ve heard, not everyone there is a racist redneck. That’s just Hillary’s base: [via Rumproast]

While we’re on the subject, this video (if you missed it) is even more disturbing.
What happened to Hillary’s happy supporters:

The good news is, despite her victory yesterday, Obama just picked up more superdelegates.

Real World Coming to Williamsburg?

God, we sure hope so. You know, so we can make fun of them. From Gothamist

Entering its 21st season, MTV’s The Real World returns to New York for a third time…but for the first time it’s headed to an outer-borough. That’s right, the seven generic, good-looking roommates will be heading to Brooklyn.
Shooting begins this summer, and will result in 12 hour-long episodes. In the press release we received, Jon Murray, co-creator of the show, says “The Brooklyn season, like the Hollywood season, will focus on what people loved about ‘The Real World’ when it launched in 1992 – genuine people, meaningful conflict and powerful stories.” Really Jon? We’re sort of betting it’ll be more about the cast taking over bars, fighting with locals, getting drunk and sleeping with roommates — all as they take their amazingly overpriced living quarters for granted.
The big question now is: Which part of Brooklyn will have the distinct pleasure of welcoming the new residents? Our guess is they’ll be taking over a few luxury condo units in Williamsburg. Perhaps this will unite the hipsters and anti-hipsters of the ‘nabe? Either way, get ready to see the production taking over McCarren Pool Parties this summer.

Of course, this would all be very ironic since MTV threatened us with a lawsuit for running this parody/hoax back in 2000.

Rapture Index Way Up!


Rapture thrillers, ’70s style!
Given all the craziness in the world right now–war, cyclones, earthquakes, the plummeting dollar–the Jesusy lunatics at RaptureReady are worried that the end may be near. In fact, the Rapture Index is currently at 170. That’s seven points higher than the record highs of 2006 and 2007 and just 12 points beneath the all-time high of 182, which occurred in September of 2001. It’s time to get your rapture letter mailing list in order.
Here’s some of the reasons the RaptureReady.com gives for the sudden jump in the probability of the Apocalypse’s arrival (below). Ironically, some of the shit they list is the result of the polices of their patron saint, George Bush:

— False Christs – A gentleman in Florida has made news by claiming to be Christ.
— Inflation: Consumer prices continue to soar.
— Debt and Trade – The U.S. federal debt reaches the $9 trillion mark.
— Ecumenism – A key Italian political leader proposed the creation a “palace of religions” in Rome.
— Beast Government – The EU pens a new treaty.
— Volcanoes – Chaiten volcano has erupted in southern Chile
— Wild Weather- Bad weather is putting millions of people at risk.
— Plagues – A new drug-resistant strain staff has been linked to sexually-active gay men.

After the jump, another hilarious rapture video.

Visioneers

We have absolutely no idea what to make of this trailer, but we’ll see anything starring Zach Galifianakis as George Washington or Nathaniel Buckner.
