What A Honda-rful Curl

January 11th, 2011 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana

BEHOLD! The all-new Honda Civic, in its full and shiny glory on display yesterday at the Detroit Auto Show. And looky here, an au naturel Pete Wentz, pitching the revamped 2012 model to audiences while plugging Fall Out Boy’s spot on this year’s upcoming Honda Civic Tour.

MY GOODNESS.

I’ve always hated (like, HATED) Wentz’s stupid emo haircut, but now that I’ve seen its alternative, DEAR GOD do I want those ugly, flat bangs back.

DEAR GOD.

You Take the Good, You Take the Bad, You Take ‘Em Both and There You Have…A Photo with Pete Wentz

March 26th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

I saw this picture of a fan scoring a snapshot of herself with Pete Wentz and was struck by all the things she did right in it.


PROS:

  1. She took the photo from an angle above rather than below her face, which is more flattering
  2. She wore a cute top
  3. She picked a celebrity to idolize who actually doesn’t mind taking pictures with fans

I did have one itty-bitty issue however.

CON:

  1. That celebrity is Pete Wentz

Are They Not Men?

December 16th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Anyone that spends enough time with me knows that most of my best friends are dudes that are kind of chick-like. They look male, they smell male… but they’ll, y’know, bitch me out about not being sensitive to their needs. And they cry listening to “Here” by Pavement. And they spoil me with sushi dinners just to have enough time to wax poetic about the complicated structure of relationships.

I love a guy that’s basically a girl, because guys are awesome and look great in soft, old t-shirts (girls do too, but unless they’re Jen, they’ll never let you borrow their soft, old t-shirt if it looks good on you), and they don’t care if you weigh less than them, and they listen without grunting when you’re three O Bans in and shedding tears about how you feel inadequate, maybe because it’s a full moon or you’re hormonal or something.

So yes, it’s a little funny that I tend to poke at Paris Hilton’s little bitch Onch, just because he’s a delicate, rainbow-colored flower with a fascination for useless famous-for-nothings, and cuz he totally looks like a lady. So when Intern Jasmine sent over photos of the little lad-lass at Hilton’s Christmas party…


…and mused, “Wait – Onch is a dude?” and I responded, “Barely,” I started to check myself. What is my real problem with Onch, anyway? Is it because he’s Asian, and because I’m so desperate to have rock-hard reprzentatives that I can’t deal with an Asian that’s also a bit of a femme fatale?

After, all MTV News has begun releasing their top ten picks for Man of the Year, and already included in that tier are the self-anointed queenish king of guyliner, Pete Wentz, and one very dainty, cherub-faced Jonas brother, Nick Jonas.

I mean shoot, if this is what sets the bar for manhood in the new millenium, Onch is like the new Gerard Butler, and I’m just an outdated old fart. Right?

Maybe I’m wrong about Onch. Maybe.

More like a Motel 6 in Duluth

It’s a sad fact: Rock is dead. Save for the few awesome bands like Black Kids or Exit Clov or Blonde Redhead that we feature in our weekly Rock of Asian, the entire visible rock scene is totally adrift. Where are the new Fugazis and Nirvanas, the second comings of My Bloody Valentine, the young Stephen Malkmus, the teenage version of The Pixies? Where are they? Why is there no new Who or Stones? Why? Why? Why?

Instead, what my poor ears find themselves wading through on iTunes Tuesday is a bunch of bullshit sad hack post-post-emo/post-post-glam bands that can’t seem to tell a guitar pick from an eyeliner stick.

This douchebag? Are you kidding me?

These tools? Please just kill me (or them).


It’s gross. It’s embarrassing. It’s saddening. It’s maddening!

I’m angry, can you tell?? But that’s my beef. I’m apparently an old fart. I’ve come to terms with the fact that maybe it’s my problem, that the fact that my ears and eyes are offended by what most of the kids are listening to these days is a fault of my own hangups. I’ll be accountable for that, totally. It has nothing to do with me. Hell, it has nothing to do with us.

But dude, when it comes to my attention that Billboard (an organization populated by arguably sensible adults like you and me) has lauded the European MTV Music Awards performance of another stupid poser rock band called TOKIO HOTEL, I start to feel inadvertantly involved. Tokio? That sounds like Tokyo! And Tokyo is in Japan! And Japan is in Asia! And… well, you get the point.

I checked it out, and Tokio Hotel’s VMA performance included mid-stage torrential downpour over the stage. Incredible. They have not only dishonored Jennifer Beals’ iconic performance in Flashdance, but the fashion stylings of The Cult –all in the course of a singular song:

I am taking this very, very personally. Tokio Hotel, indeed. LEAVE US THE HELL OUT OF THIS.

Rock of Lame-sian

May 2nd, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Has anybody else seen the People.com video of Fall Out Boy’s douchetard/bassist/sublebrity magnet Pete Wentz demonstrating “guyliner?”

Pete, you’re a Grade A dork. Your band’s rock is lame and I can’t distinguish you guys from any of the other whiney post-emo phrase-moniker haircut bands out there. Furthermore, you are not:

Sean,

Robert,
James,
or Ziggy.

You’re not the first, you certainly won’t be the last. So quit peddling the eye pencil, you cheeseball attention whore.
