Sex on L Train Platform Leads to Celibacy Pledge

Katie Jean Arnold (pic right), a singer/songwriter/comedian, hooked up with some stranger on the L train platform so now she’s telling the New York Post, “Never again!”, as in, she’s ratcheting up the celibacy belt for a few weeks.

Two weeks ago, Katie Jean Arnold had her celibacy wake-up call. After hooking up with a stranger on the L train platform and going back to his place, she woke up at his apartment and decided to leave. On her way out the door, he came up to her, naked, and said the words she’ll never forget: ‚”What’s your name?”
It was then that she made her Big Decision.
No. More. Sex.

Before you starting thinking, “Damn, why hasn’t that happened to me?”, realize it’s this guy who turned this woman off of having sex for a few weeks. Maybe it was his style. Maybe it was the fact he couldn’t remember her damn name. But dude, whatever sex position your iPhone recommended you try did not work.

Christopher Owens and the Children of God

Screen-shot-2010-05-07-at-3.09.05-PM-350x263.png
I’ve got a new piece over at The Awl about Girls lead singer Christopher Owens and the Children of God cult. It’s pretty disturbing, but hopefully worth a read for fans of the band and/or people obsessed with bizarre cults.

Given the passion expressed for girl music on this site, I suppose it’s not too much an affront to my masculinity to confess my obsession with the admittedly unmanly band Girls. Their debut record “Album” is forty minutes of melancholy bliss, late night break-up songs that will make you feel like a teenager suffering from a his first encounter with heartbreak. My introduction to the band’s back-story came through Pitchfork (shut up!) whose review featured a little biographical information on the band’s leader, Christopher Owens: ‚”Christopher Owens grew up in the Children of God. His older brother died as a baby because the cult didn’t believe in medical attention. His dad left. He and his mother lived around the world, and the cult sometimes forced his mother to prostitute herself.”

Read it all at The Awl (It’s kinda NSFW).

I think visors are on the cusp of becoming the new hot shit. Therefore, I will spend the next two hours highlighting examples of cool vizors (visor fans: it’s OK to switch out the “z” with the “s”) on my twitter account. Think you’ve got a good “visor eye”? Join in w/ hashtag #visorfeed. The future is here. Am I serious? I don’t know. Not even I can tell if I’m joking or not anymore… Anyways, Friday right?!
