Readings

The New York Press is out with its annual “50 Most Loathsome New Yorkers” list. I made the list, sort of, at #42, lumped into the “i-Snobs” category. But my favorite selection was #13, whose name I will not mention here. See if you can figure it out based on the clues in this excerpt from a well-executed polemic smackdown:

“The actress speaks like an 11-year-old girl and has less to say; lacking utterly in charm, she compensates with screamy clothes and pointy shoes. Now that she is at long last gone, we’re hoping new icons will spring up to replace her, and we’re hoping they’ll be wearing no-name jeans, going light on the eyeliner and reading a newspaper every once in a while.”

The Song In My Head, II

without comments

Help me. I can’t stop. I can’t stop, I say. I can’t seem to stop listening to John Coltrane’s “My Favorite Things.” Yes, yes, I know it’s like, all accessible and easy and stuff. Yes, yes I know. But I still can’t stop listening to it over and over. That’s why I’m saying “HELP!”
