Beth

Anonymous Content
You know a song is a classic when it gets parodied. The legendary KISS ballad, “Beth” is no exception. This short film, directed by Brian Billow, chronicles the completely fictitious story of the song’s inspiration. The Peter Criss character’s dialogue stays true to the song’s lyrics

WITH WINTERS GONE, CAN WE BE FAR BEHIND?

Dick Cavett | The New York Times

No more Jonathan Winters.

What did we do to deserve this?

I’m just antique enough to remember when Jonathan first hit. Or at least for me. It was the Jack Paar “Tonight Show” and no one had ever seen anything remotely like it.

. . . There were sudden, instant changes of character, gender and manner, each with a new face, a different voice, even different physique, it seemed.

Make that lightning character changes, switching in less than an eye wink from an old person to a juvenile, from tough drill sergeant to mincing hairdresser, from adult human to feisty feline, from bumpkin to society type to rube to sophisticate; from iron-jawed right winger to gelatinous liberal, from adult to child to repellently cute baby; each change so fast and total it was as if frames had been cut from a film.

Here was originality personified. And unprecedented.


WHAT YOUR PROFILE PICTURE SAYS ABOUT YOU (HINT: “YOU’RE A DOUCHEBAG”)

Jesus Christ, Silicon Valley

I have a new favorite douchebag profile pic: Enthralling My Fucking Audience. This one is phenomenal; you’ve probably seen it somewhere amongst your fucking friends. It’s where a Very Important Dbag (VIDb) is captivating above-mentioned audience solely through the power of his personal presence.

Jesus Christ, the fucking hubris. The fucking insane, idiotic hubris.

Examples culled from an eleven-second scrub of Facebook:

You can heighten the dbaggery of the Thoughtful Humanist with the variant Cut-Off Thoughtful Humanist (COTH), which indicates a level of profile picture curation that belies any claim of modesty, before or ever again, in a VIDb’s life:
