Fugs and Pieces, November 4th


fugs-and-pieces

Happy weekend, Fug Nation! While you’re waiting for the factory horn to blow:

– It’s nice to read that Hugh Jackman is actually as awesome as we want him to be. (Lainey)

– Chloe Sevigny dressed up like Terry Richardson for the cover of a magazine, which would be more interesting if Terry Richardson were not, as Celebitchy points out, a noted perv. (Celebitchy)

– This story — about a woman stuck in SFO for eight days (!) because she couldn’t pay her bag fees — is amazing and bizarre on multiple levels. (Time)

You will enjoy this list of IKEA’s most ridiculous names. Personally, whenever I go to IKEA, I like to read the names of every product aloud. This is part of why I’m single.  (Flavorwire)

– You may have heard that ABC is developing a reboot of Judith Krantz’s Scruples. We are SO excited. But first! Let’s revisit the original mini-series. IT IS AMAZING. (Sighs and Whispers)

– The FBI has declared the Juggalos a gang, officially, which sounds like the set-up for an amazing episode of something. (Wired)

– Speaking of law enforcement, it seems this dude tried to give a police office a taco when asked for his form of ID. Maybe he just really IDENTIFIES with tacos. They are delicious! (LA Weekly)

– The inside of the Fendi atelier is amazing. Plus: Diet Coke gelato. (The Selby, via Refinery29)

– If you are a Kelly Clarkson fan — as we are – you will enjoy this article about her in the New York Times, as it is essentially about why she is awesome. (NY Times)

– If you liked the posters about STDs I linked to last week, you’ll enjoy these posters for public housing. (The Atlantic)

    Ah Friday. Husband not yet home from work. Kid at grammas. It’s just me and GFY and a delicious malted beverage, which is…empty? How did that happen?
    Thanks for your great work!
    Now I like Hugh Jackman; and I am going to try to implement the Intern George “work-tha-room” in the future. Action plan: uncomfortably close, eye lock, never stop moving.

    Yay Kelly Clarkson!

    This interview with her was pretty cool too: http://www.metro.co.uk/music/878864-kelly-clarkson-id-have-done-ok-on-the-voice-but-not-the-x-factor

    I actually re-read the Scruples trilogy once a year. At least.

    OMG!!!!!! I had no idea who Terry Richardson was until a few days ago when I saw the picture of Kat Dennings (whom I adore) that he had taken for GQ Magazine: http://www.gq.com/women/photos/201111/kat-dennings-gq-photos-interview-november-2011

    But, now I’m totally disgusted by the man and hate the fact that she had to work with him, even though I love the photograph, which is GORGEOUS! Eeeeeeeeewwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Julien Macdonald seems as if very inspired by Mark Fast

    Please please please, ladies, please don’t link to Lainey. I’d give you anything you want or can imagine if you’ll stop. She’s so self-obsessed, I feel like I’m reading posts by a Kardashian on those times I’m not paying close attention and accidentally click through to her blog.
    Don’t make me associate her with you guys, please!

    Scruples? Hells yes. God, I miss the days of the sweeping epic Judith Krantz and Danielle Steel miniseries.

    And JB, I completely agree on Lainey. Ugh.

    Oh my God… I have also re-read Scruples at least once a year for at least two decades, but I’ve never seen the original miniseries and didn’t even know that it existed. This has changed.my.life, people – I can’t wait to track it down!

    Okay, when I run the universe, every woman will be issued her own personal Hugh Jackman.

    Yes, Virginia, there IS a Hugh Jackman. Thank you for sharing!

    I was in IKEA today, and I overheard at least two people doing that, so, you’re normal.
