No, I think the schwag weed the editors are smoking deserves all the credit.

Don’t bring the quality of our weed into this. That’s just low.

This site is like Gawker for art – an unreadable rabble dabble of butthurt snark married to undignified (and just plain bad) writing masquerading as insight and originality.

I’ll be reading the “Guess Who’s Jewish” slideshow on the NY Daily News, thanks. At least they’re honest about their intentions.

Why is it that the people leaving the shittiest and most uninformed remarks never have the balls to leave their real name?

Wow, who are you, the Janet Napolitano of bottom-feeding art web-blogs?

Haha ZING watch out for this guy

OH what a cruel world this is that we would deceive you with an imperfect blog post. Why, God, whyyyyy

Keep it up. With wit and writing chops like that, you can be the next Helen Gurley Brown.

what’s wrong with gawker?

I can relate to the humor about round vs. square glasses (it’s ok, because I look good in rectangular rimless glasses), but not to the tribe mentality of coordinated appearance.
