"throw ya hands in tha air if ya got a small dick!"

This comment is the winner of all BV comments of all time. I would have given a million bucks to come up with a comment that freaking appropriate. KUDOS!

I appreciate you putting "Brooklyn Indie Music Fest" in quotation marks. What the fuck is up with that thing?

Why no mention of HTRK at Secret Project Robot tonight? Anyone catch them at Home Sweet Home on Wednesday night? If so, how were they?

That photo reminds me of something...
So about 1 month ago, my girlfriend was having a rather medium sized dinner party at her apartment on Bedford avenue. She had woken up rather early that morning and was preparing all sorts of delicacies for her friends to eat. I had arrived after work to help her prepare and set the table and whatnot and was also rather hungry myself because I had only eaten a small lunch that afternoon. I pleaded with her to let me snack a bit on some of the foods she had prepared, but she was rather adamant about me waiting.
Anyways, when she pulled a ROBUST hummus platter out of the fridge, I couldn't resist and disobeyed her wishes and dipped a pita triangle in to her dismay. She saw me and yelled at me and then took that robust hummus platter and put it on the top shelf of her bookshelf. But that didn't stop me... Whenever she walked out of the room, I would make a similar arm movement to that fellow, (with a pita triangle in hand) and dip it into that elevated hummus platter on the bookshelf. She had no idea! I was so sneaky! :)

11:37 - decent effort but you need to reread your posting before hitting the submit button. You used the word "rather" way too many times. Expand your vocabulary kiddo and have a great weekend!

Donald Fagen is really good. Shocking, right? And it turns out he hates hummus. Who knew?

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2011 4:21 PM

I chose to utilize the word "rather" rather often due to the fact that it is a 6 letter word. And as you can assume, I am rather fond of 6 letter words.

Hummus.

so i wanted to listen to something new last night while cooking dinner. i figured i'd put on that caveman band all the cool blogs are talking about, thinking it would be great. i was pretty confused after listening to their music. are these guys supposed to be good, or are they a joke band?
