Never forget.

Hahahahaha!

I will never see Chains of Love and not think you’re talking about Erasure.

Come to me, cover me, hold me, together we’ll break these Chains of Love.


#1098

I hear that title and I can’t help but think of Los Lobos.


#1099

I don’t think the folks at the furniture store will put up a campaign sign.

Here’s a shitpost for @nick (@thebalvenie too, but Nick came to mind first).


#1101

I suppose he is about as welcome as a dose of the clap these days (RyRy, not balv)


#1102

Hahaha!


#1103

lol

thanks for clarifying!


#1104

Canceled no more.

What the fuck? Carnegie hall? Is this like Romesh booking the Greek for himself? Tell me it’s so…


#1106

Turns out it is EXACTLY like that. TIL…


#1107

well, in the spirit of kindness, i hope this goes well. I’m not saying I’m rooting for him, I just want those he hurt to heal and i’d like him to grow up.

If I had to take a swing at where in the US there’s a dense population of callous dude-bros with low grade to high grade misogynistic tendencies, I guess New York City would be in my top three.

Did y’all ever read any of the brat pack novels? Jay McInerney? Bret Easton Ellis?


#1109

I’ve read American Psycho, and I think it’s a brilliant book.


#1110

I wonder how much blowback Carnegie Hall is going to have.


#1111

My favorite is Rules of Attraction. But if you liked American Psycho, Less than Zero would not even remotely be a waste of your time, and it (<0) does also have a nice fourth wall breaking sequel I’ve read twice now.


#1112

I think I read Less than Zero in high school. I read American Psycho when it came out. I had no idea what it was going to be about when I read it, which is an experience probably not too many people have if they read it now. I thought it was a brilliant piece of work, but I will also say that I wouldn’t read it today, mostly because, the older I get, the less tolerant of violence in general I’ve become. I can’t watch horror movies anymore either.


#1113

Man, it’s even worse when you have babies. I got squeamish reading “The Omen” of all things. Needless to say, I will never reread “Daddy Love,” by Joyce Carol Oates for as long as I live.

The sequel to Less than Zero opens with Clay at the premier of the movie adaptation and him bitching about how the book was all lies about him. Only one violent scene and it’s a whopper, but NOTHING in comparison to anything in American Psycho.

Agreed. Having babies changes you. Even more if you have a sick baby. I used to be a libertarian a long time ago.
