Fugs and Pieces: July 9th


fugs-and-pieces

The best part about a long weekend, as I believe I’ve said in this space previously, is that it leads to a SHORT WORK WEEK. Have a lovely weekend, Fug Nation, and if you need reading material, prithee peruse the following:

– Did you see Steve Carell on The Colbert Report this week? Because these are the highlights and dear god, they are worth the time. I love you, Even Stepvhen. (I really, REALLY love Colbert. In perhaps a slightly inappropriate way.)  Maybe, now that he’s leaving The Office, Carell can just go back to working at Comedy Central.

– Speaking of TV gigs, Snoop Dogg apparently wants a guest-starring role on…the Brit soap Coronation Street. He even made them a video wishing them a happy 50th anniversary. We know Snoop LOVES soaps, as he was on One Life to Live for a while, but having that kind of devotion to a show we don’t really get in America takes REAL LOVE for the genre. I love that he loves his stories. (Pop Eater)

– Listen, we love sandwiches. But this SANDWICH IN A CAN is truly a bridge too far. (Eater)

– When my house gets out of control messy, it often FEELS like I am living in an apartment made of books. However, unlike this one, mine is not located in the V&A. (Gizmodo)

This piece about The Real Housewives of New Jersey is thoughtful and interesting, well-capturing my own frustration with that piece of the RH pie, and exploring as to whether this is the franchise that has really fallen down on ye olde Background Check job. (Daily Beast)

– Dan Gilbert is having a rough couple of days. First, LeBron ditches him. Now, people are mocking his fondness for Comic Sans. It really ISN’T the best font for expressing bitter rage, Dan. (CNN)

– You absolutely want to see this montage of Mad Men‘s every pick up line. (Vulture)

Lucky has a peek at some of the outfits we’ll be seeing on Mad Men as well. It seems Betty’s life choices have not negatively impacted her wardrobe (thank god). (Lucky Magazine)

– I am so obsessed with LiLo’s terrible, terrible twitter habits. Someone needs to take the laptop away from her, like, yesterday. (Lainey)

– Speaking of the Lohans, it might make the entire world happier if someone took Lindsay’s parents and dropped them off on a deserted island. JUST SHUT UP YOU TWO. (Celebitchy)

– Cleanse your palate with the fantastic news that Brides.com (I don’t know) is slowly putting all of the long-lost and deeply lamented Domino Magazine archives back online. (Casa Sugar)
