DCeptette: Perilously perched on the precipice of total Elizabeth Wurtzeldom version.

  1. Alberto Gonzales named Attorney General. Plans are afoot to alter inscriptions on DoJ to read "Everybody should expect the Spanish Inquisition!" (Post)
  2. If you woke up thsi morning with the funny feeling that your frayed nerves had healed to the point that you were contemplating taking a day off from varying your escape route from Starbucks, well that's because the DC Terror Alert has predictably dropped a notch. It's all a part of Susan Sheybani's "Hey America! Take some Prozac already!" campaign. (Post)
  3. World of Craigslist: Do you still need proof that Friendster is turning us into a bunch of simpering dimwits? (Craigslist)
  4. If you're not a fan of Art-O-Matic, you could make a reasoned argument about how the quality of art is related to the uncommon perspective of uncommon creators. Or, you could just have a righteous, sniveling shit-fit about it. Guess what side of the futon art critic Blake Gopnik woke up on today? (Post)(<----link fixed, 11/12)
  5. The futile gestures of the young and disaffected, now 20% more endearing than a teddy bear stuffed with broken Corona bottles. (dcindymedia)

That art-o-matic review was one of the funniest things I've read in a while - and definitely one of the harshest reviews. It seem to me that berating an _amateur_ art show for being amateurish is about as pointless as dissing a _professional_ art show for being snotty, self-aggrandizing, and pretentious. I mean, duh.
