Before she took the stage at the Tea Party Convention, Sarah Palin told Chris Wallace of Fox News that she was open to running for President in 2012.
Were she to run (the words “Palin” and “win” and “2012″ should never be spoken or imagined in concert), I think Jen and I would need about 579 guest blogging friends to help us deal with the onslaught of American shame. We simply couldn’t cover that amount of content. Our fingers would melt.

When I first read on Poketo that there was a $750 cupcake at the The Sweet Surrender Cupcake and Candy Shop in the newly-opened Palazzo of Las Vegas, I thought it sounded so stupid.
I mean, check out the pretentious and douchey description she pulled from LAist:

I’m a huge fan of veteran rockers doing their thing foreva and eva and eva, so when seminal post-punk (or as I like to call them, thinking man’s punk) band Mission of Burma resurfaced in 2002, I gave a tiny cheer.
MOB just announced their forthcoming release: The Sound, The Speed, The Light, with all of complicated posturings of… a veteran thinking man’s band. According to Consequence of Sound, the album “is divided into four ‘sets,’ or suites of three songs, each of which explore moods or colors. Lyrical topics covered include ‘alcoholism to fleshly concerns.’”
Pretentious, sure. But it still sounds fucking great, and infinitely better than the caca kids are calling punk these days anyway.
Now can somebody please tell me that the Jawbreaker’s reunion rumors are true, so I can die happy?
