Drill Squad does Brooklyn

This is the first in a series about four friends that hang out in New York together and have all kinds of fun adventures. Kind of like “Friends,” only there’s four of them, and they are drawings, so their jokes aren’t quite as funny.

Today they went and sat in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

a friday morning dating tip

some of these might be common sense, however, i'd like to share my infinite wisdom in a way that will make you feel as though there is no such thing as a stupid question.

tip #1: don't make soy tacos for dinner and then invite a boy over for a slumber party.

EDIT: on second thought, do it and tell me what happens. i'm curious.

Live and in person

Finally got to go see a REAL BABY DAYLINER SHOW! And this is my gift to you, the unfortunate folks that don't live in New York, the magical land where Baby Dayliner performs monthly.

The filming gets a little shakey at one point, but that's cause I decided to get closer.

All the Barbies

The cute factor of this video is really almost too much. Thank goodness for Gary Tijuana and his rad, freestylin' family members.

teen beat tuesday

this week's post is dedicated to aaron spelling, in loving memory of him and the teen beatery that he has brought to my life. actually, it's interesting how few teen beaters were a part of 90210 (dean cain? wtf?), the best show of my young and then a bit older life. so, i present to you, brian austin green. his emergence into manhood took place sometime prior to his devirginization of donna who wore white lace lingere and somehow didn't scare off this young man who obviously had DEEP URBAN roots. he went from a skinny nerd in overalls with the straps hanging down to a tough tweeking rhymester who would later appear in playgirl. he also gave way to something i refer to as the BASKETBALL SHOE GUY, or the BSG. the BSG was the guy in high school who was the total opposite of the quiet guy in the metallica shirt and long hair who i also had secret crushes on. the BSG probably drove a honda of some sort and frequently wore shorts and escorted you (me) to dances.

Bearded Dog of the Week!

We met this little guy a few weeks back in Napa. He really looked like a bearded black piglet. Super yucky looking fur but so sweet.

hi folks.i'm at work and i'm also very hungover.i was wondering if our millions of loyal readers would be interested in sharing with me their favorite hangover remedies. because i'm at work, "hair of the dog" and going back to sleep aren't options. i already tried a breakfast burrito and it didn't help. also, if you say clamato, i'll barf on you. speaking of which, did you know that clamato has an energy drink:

how disgusting! but please feel free to imagine the delicious bloody mary possibilities. also, if you live in san francisco and are interested in purchasing some clamato energia, they stock it at the liquor store next to delerium on 16th street. it's in the small fridge up at the front across from the register.have lovely weekends and please, bring on the remedies. i hurt.

a reading list, by erin.

i read a lot. sometimes my friends yell at me for watching tv, riding the bus, playing my game boy, talking on the phone and/or emailing while hanging out with them AND reading a delicious piece of written word. i may, occasionally, provide you with a list of reading material that you're free to enjoy during your precious freetime. that is, when you're not injesting the satisfying content of this blog.

today's list focuses on one of my favorite genres: rock and roll music (or music in general) - auto/biographies/novels and other stories.

The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band - this book was written by the members of motley crue. i called in sick one day because i couldn't stop reading this book. it was the fall of 2003, i'd just moved to san francisco and needed something to provide me with some vicarious insanity. this did the trick. and when waiting in the ambient death metal aisle of amoeba for spiritualized to play one afternoon, it was an excellent distraction from the annoying and smelly people around me.

The Long Hard Road Out of Hell - this is marilyn manson (brian hansen's) autobiography. i highly recommend it because right now you probably think he's an idiot. after you read this book, you will think he's a hilarious idiot.

How Soon is Never? - this is a novel by a real life rock journalist who does drugs about a make believe rock journalist who does drugs. the make believe rock journalist tries to reunite the smiths. the real life rock journalist only got to interview morrissey, something the make beli...wait, i don't want to ruin the ending.

And I Don’t Want to Live this Life - this book was written by nancy spungen's mother. it almost made me cry...ALMOST.

Heavier than Heaven - this book really did make me cry! i was on a plane home from new york and because it was so depressing, it had taken me several months to slowly get my way to the end of this book. when i finished it, i was a teary pile of crybaby. it's excellent. and pretty much contains all of the teen angst you will ever need in a book.

We Got the Neutron Bomb - for a second, this book makes you think that maybe once upon a time LA wasn't a huge infected waste of space. but then you realize that you were wrong.

Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs - i ate this book up. it includes great accounts by vivienne westwood, chrissy hinde, and other females who could kick my ass. i read it in 1995 when people in orange county liked the offspring and PUNK! i felt like i was providing myself with some imaginary roots. oh, to be 18 again.

Lords of Chaos - this book is evil.

Have Gun Will Travel - in may of 2000 rolling stone published an article (the rock was on the cover) about the deaths of biggie and tupac. it was an excellent article and i was HOOKED. the article lead me to investigate more on the topic and eventually i found this book. it's VERY long and VERY detailed, but it includes accounts of every rotten thing that suge knight ever did. i'm scared of him.

For the Love of Mustard

This x-ray was just sent to me by way of a pal that works at SF General Hospital. This patient claims that they "slipped and fell" on this bottle of mustard. Apparently, people "slip and fall" on objects very very frequently in this ER. Only in SF.

Crazy Cat Terrorizes Connecticut Town

"Residents of the neighborhood of Sunset Circle say they have been terrorized by a crazy cat named Lewis.

Unfortunately, there were no pics included in this article but i'm assuming that my interpretation of Lewis has got to be pretty close. Oh, kitty.
oh, and one more thing...
no means YES.

this video pretty much sums up what is great in the world. and my coworker told me that, "prog is totally back." so watch and learn, sweet friends.

I Wanna Be Your Lover

Check out 19 year old Prince on American Bandstand! The interview with Dick Clark at the end is awesome.

San Francisco Vs. New York

One cool thing about this blog is that it will contain posts from girls living on two sides of the country. Another cool thing is that we’re super cool and funny. So you can expect a whole lot of pleasurable reading.

This first post points out the striking difference between San Francisco and New York, as observed by Audrey in her first week as a New Yorker:

In New York, the baristas put sugar and cream in your coffee FOR you. In San Francisco, you have to do it yourself. It’s like a whole new world out here.
