Fugs & Pieces, January 18, 2013


fugs-and-pieces

First off, a housekeeping note: It is Martin Luther King Day on Monday here in the United States (as well as President Obama’s Inauguration — I can only wait with bated breath to find out how Madame Tussauds London thinks we plan to celebrate), so although we will be posting on Monday, it will be on a more relaxed schedule than usual. We will, however, be back to our usual on Tuesday, January 22. Until then:

– Buzzfeed asks, “How well do you know Clueless?“  18 out of 22.  We have the most obscure Clueless joke in Spoiled, I really should have done better. (Buzzfeed)

I love Michael J Fox for noting that he does not want his son to date Taylor Swift, for fear of her writing a song called “Sam, You Piece of Shit.” (Vulture)

– This Vogue spread, ostensibly praising Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, is one of the most tone-deaf and ridiculous things they have ever done. (The Cut)

– That being said, I KNOW you want to read this history of sequins. (Threaded)

– And you definitely want to read this profile of the wonderful Jackie Collins (whose new book we are actually giving away next week). She is just the best. (Out)

– Cosmo had a psychiatrist evaluate Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence’s Golden Globes acceptance speeches. (Cosmo)

– This news story, about a recent attack on the director of the Bolshoi Ballet that may have left him partially blind, is both fascinating and awful. (New York Times)

– I totally agree that SOMETHING has changed with Lea Michele lately. She seems way happier. (Lainey)

– The Cheesecake Factory serves a pasta dish that has OVER 3000 CALORIES. It sounds good. (Time)

– Vulture has polled film critics to determine the worst movie of 2012. (Vulture)

Bradley Cooper’s current hair IS because he’s making a movie, and he claims he had to get a perm for it. He‘s very jovial about it and the whole thing cracks me up. I am back on the Bradley Cooper bandwagon, ever since someone asked him if he was dating Jennifer Lawrence and his entire response was basically, “I am WAY TOO OLD FOR HER, you disgusting perv.” (Celebitchy)

    That Vogue spread IS tone-deaf. That said, the Coast Guard picture is hilarious and is currently my computer wallpaper. I love how you can just make out the Coast Guard officer. :P

      Your comment prompted me to go look for the USCG picture, as I used to work for the USCG and recall how much they appreciate mainstream recognition (they were even happy about that awful, awful Ashton Kutcher movie). I was most definitely rewarded, although I can’t say the same for the Coast Guard. Oh my god, this is absurd. Deeply, deeply absurd and, yes, hilarious.

        I’m glad you enjoyed it. I also loved the “note” / disclaimer: “Editor’s note: Coast Guard policy mandates that all passengers aboard Coast Guard small boats wear the proper-­fitting life jacket while the boat is under way. These models were photographed safely at the North Cove marina in Battery Park City, under direct Coast Guard supervision.”

    2 out of 22 for clueless. Not sure if I should be proud or shameful.

    What is the Clueless reference?

      Yes, that’s what I want to know, too! I’ve read Spoiled twice, but didn’t see the Clueless reference, unless I did and forgot. Now I have to read the book again! I see what you did there, Fug Girls…

    17 out of 22! I’m a little concerned with how quickly the answers came to me on a few of them…

      19 out of 22. Yep, answers came flying to me too. But I did love that movie.

    20 out of 22 for Clueless! I missed the dad’s hourly rate and the number of times the word “clueless” was said. A couple were lucky guesses though (like Elton’s CD).

      Same for me! I am disappointed in myself for not actually getting those two right. If i had thought for a minute about the number of times “Clueless” is said I would have gotten that one right.

        20/22-I missed Hagsville & Clueless.

          20/22 as well! I also missed the Clueless question… and something else. That Elton line about leaving his Cranberries CD in the quad though is one of my faves. You can pretty much sum up the 90′s (and my high school experience) by saying, “I think I left my Cranberries CD in the quad.”

    21 out of 22. I was stunned – I love it but I don’t LOVE it.

      I also got 21/22. But I DO love LOVE the movie. So I was disappointed I didn’t get a perfect score.

    “bated,” it’s bated breath, for future reference.

    Is it….shameful that I feel this much pride?

      Wow! I couldn’t remember how many times clueless was said at all. Good job!

    20 out of 22! And I heard the answers to all of the questions in my head exactly as the characters say them. Love that movie.

    That Madame Tussauds Thanksgiving scene will never stop being hilarious.

    21 out of 22! The numbers don’t lie – I have obviously seen (and loved!) that movie more times than I thought.

    19 out of 22. It’s amazing how many quotes from that movie stick in your head.

    I don’t understand how you get 3000 calories into one serve of pasta.

    not only that, Coop said no when JLaw supposedly informed him that T-Swift was interested..hah!

    17/22 on Clueless! The ones I got, I really knew. The others, not so much. No idea about her father’s hourly rate (wow, inflation, huh?), Travis’ number of tardies, the Persian mafia, the name of the high school, or the number of times “clueless” is actually said.

    18 out of 22. So disappointed. I missed a couple I should have known better on and had a couple lucky guesses.
