Why would you ever teach your dog to play dead? I think it would be more awesome to teach your dog how to dodge bullets. Point your hand at him and say bang and he jumps to the side. Now that would be an awesome dog.

The new insanely brutal, insanely vicious, and insanely, disgustingly, fascinating sport is horse fighting. These images are so raw and violent they make you furious, but you can't help but be intriguied. Be prepared.
You can find information on how you can donate to end these horse fights on Network for Animals.
Also, check out the Vice article.

*squash city: to be used when comparing one thing, which is far superior, to everything else. as in, squashing all competition. ie. "those tacos is squash city." = the best tacos in new york. SQUASH FUCKING CITY.

here's what i saw that caught my attention but if you can catch the whole episode, you need to watch it:
Apparently, there were a lot of highlights at my birthday sake shoot and bomb, and after telling Rain a couple behind the scenes happenings he has compelled me to start a little section at the Geek Dunkin' blog about my attempts at finding love, trying to score hot chicks, and getting slapped in the face.
Disclaimer: Yes I know in doing this I am putting some personal shit out there. To try and keep things anonymous these stories will be in no particular order and I will not use any names. But if you're reading this and you know this story is about you, I hope you find the hilariousness in it and realize how awesome the story is. Because when it comes down to it, whether you score with the hottest chick or get slapped by her, the next day, all you got is a dope story. And I hope thats what you guys and gals get from this.
PS - I am ready to get slapped by any one of these girls and if you see me get slapped you know why. =D

Although I've only seen the trailer, this documentary looks like its going to show a lot of crazy experiences. I don't know if I could do 25 years of it, but a year. I could do that. Enjoy.

I was chillin in jersey this weekend and I got a call from my aunt. She asked me if I was ok. I said of course. Why wouldn't I be. She told me a crane's cable broke while holding up a piece of steel and carved a hole into a building around my apt.
At first I thought, Damn. I hope it wasn't my apt building. But then I had the thought that it could be. I dismissed it. I headed back into the city. As soon as I got out of the subway I saw a barricade blocking 52nd St from 3rd Ave. I got a chill up my spine. 51st blocked off, 50th blocked off, 49th blocked off.
I finally got to my street and it was the first non-barricaded st. I exhaled a sigh of relief. I walked onto 2nd Ave and saw the craziness.
Now granted my building didn't get hit, but all the debris and the crane hit right around my favorite diner, my favorite mexican spot, and a couple of restaurants that are in my rotation. I could have easily been home this past weekend and I easily could have been out grabbing some food in that area.
Its crazy how random acts can cause a chain reaction that ripples through time. If I didn't have such an awesome weekend in jersey who knows what could have happened. Thank God for awesome weekends.
OR--the more realistic approach would be to do it at your desk while you're at work today dreaming about that green beer. either way, it's all good.

but i kinda forgot to water it in the stress of moving.
recently, i found the best plant in the world on urban outfitters. all i needed to do was plant the seeds in the soil, water it, and close it up. i placed it on my windowsill and it takes care of itself. the plant is completely self-sufficient.
if you're not that great at caring for plants, then this is the plant for you...

back then, jessie worked hard and partied hard (photo 1 was back when she was a sophomore...i think). she picked up art direction as a major and devoted herself to design. there were always ideas and projects she needed to work out, things to research and people to talk to...despite her crazy work load and impressive social calendar, her work was always well thought out and impressively well made.
after college, jessie set her sights big. she spent a summer in london after graduation, came back to nyc to work (photo 2) and moved in with yours truly in that 3 bedroom in brooklyn (with melissa--check out february's interview). her eye for design has only matured and improved throughout the years and she has always managed to stay true to who she is. everytime she shows me a new project she is working on, i am always impressed with how professional the quality of her work is and am amazed at her concepts and ideas.
jessie's smart, sassy, and short--an all around triple threat. i know that she is someone i can talk to about life, politics and anything creative and she always has something different to say. check out what she has to say about her own plans as well as the meaning of life below (but if you want more, you can always check out her blog):
me: no prob. so tell me about what you do.
me: what would you like to be doing then? if you weren't working there.
Jessie: working at an advertising agency in a creative team with a copywriter. so it would be more concepting then designing. i like to come up with ideas and then have someone help me execute them, i really believe in team work. i don't like having to do everthing from concept to design to production.
me: you want to be the ideas lady?
me: does that mean your ideas are getting better or your eye for design is better?
Jessie: my commute...hehhee, i drive an hour from yonkers to CT so the scenery is inspiring.
me: you're a nature girl.
Jessie: hhehee. but also design mags are really inspirational. as cheesy as this is, my man friend, Mike, is totally inspirational, he is nuts and sometimes his crazy ideas get me thinking. and our 'art' debates are inspirational.
me: do you want to give him a shout out here?
Jessie: heheheh yea!!
Jessie: well yes, but i was wondering how it worked online? do i just type his name and type nice things, do i just type his name and say what he is doing or where he is from? I'm not well versed in all things online.
me: HAHA you can do it however you'd like. whatever you think would make him happy.
Jessie: YAY, MICHAEL MCGUIRE FROM YONKERS, MUCH LOVE.
Jessie: hmmm well i love doing paintings and crocheting because i use my hands.
(i'm gonna take a quick shower while i wait for you to respond)
sorry, i know it takes me awhile to respond every now and then i have to design something. hehe
Jessie: hi, welcome back. squeaky clean?
Jessie: hmmmm, no just that i'm really excited to work with you and everyone else at this flea market. I really do believe team work is the ultimate learning lesson. i love drawing inspiration from friends/coworkers and fellow crafters.

i am obsessed with color charts. i actually went and bought a color chart book to help me with my color combinations. because there are so many ways to play with color, i could never get bored with it.
this new exhibition is dope. and considering it's all online, the MoMA rocks.
but i want to do a SUPER fun one. so i might look into this one:
The Ghosts of Greenwich Village Scavenger Hunt: You’ll explore places in the Village that are said to be haunted or are associated with such dastardly deeds that you’ll think they must be haunted. You’ll learn the spooky tales of early 19th-century buildings, secret cemeteries, Mark Twain, Patrolman Schwartz, Aaron Burr, the Hangman’s Elm and a haunted speakeasy, to name a few. Of course, we recommend doing this hunt at night, when your team will set forth armed only with a flashlight....

the sunburnt cow.
in the east village.
i dare not put the whole address cuz i want to save you from this madness which calls itself a restaurant.
1. the back room is a cave. how appetizing.
2. the seating was filthy. crumbs and unrecognizable debri everywhere. i didnt know if i was brushing off pieces of food or cockroach body parts.
3. the menu is so confusing that the waiter has to explain it to you...in an australian accent:"so. the meal is $16 bucks and three courses. you pick 1 thing from this section. 1 thing from either this section or this section. and for dessert, it's not on the menu. you just worry about that later."
4. the appetizer i chose was calamari. nobody told me it was going to have diced KIWI in it. yes, little diced size pieces of KIWI mixed in with my prepackaged frozen calamari and served with some kind of MAYO. calamari/kiwi/mayo. YUM!
5. my burger. oh man. my burger. the actual beef patty in there was actually OK. too bad it was surrounded by something that was impersonating an egg. some bacon because everything taste better with bacon. a pineapple that i assume is from a can which i quickly disposed of. and a fucking BEET. KILL ME NOW. so, i don't have to talk about the dessert.
if you're wondering what "make love" is like, you should check out get fuzzy. that cat is the key to his personality--he's sarcastic, mean, and always tries to make himself laugh. in the process, people who know and like him are also highly entertained. he doesn't necessarily mean harm, he's just trying to make himself laugh.

"G" celebrated his bday on friday in jersey even though there was a monsoon out, "make love" is missing but probably off hating somewhere, and i was sick and without internet for almost 24 hours.
i really really want some ben and jerry's ice cream.

i have to be honest, this movie is a little kooky. the acting is...well, kinda bad. BUT--it's so much fun to think about remaking films i loved that i found it to be silly.
i still love michel gondry. i will never be able to get over how incredible "eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" was. so, for that reason, i had to post this video.
not only did i LOVE the real version of this movie, but i LOVE the michel gondry version of it too.

i should have known that a bar in brooklyn would catch on and do something in honor of power hour. if you're in brooklyn tonight and need a little power in your hour, you should def check this out. and if you're not but you want to do it eventually with friends, you can take their soundtrack and do your own.
but that's at your own risk. good luck.

recently, she sent me a petition to make st. patty's day an official holiday. i've never been one to celebrate the holiday but i know a lot of people who do. for them, i would sign it. i wouldn't mind another day off from work anyway.
