Cocktails are delicious, cocktail culture is kind of pretentious cool

A related Time-Waster with a SFW version of the titular* chick? Sure.
Following up on today’s theme, here is a great time-waster:
Awful Library Books
The blog “is a collection of the worst library holdings. The items featured here are so old, obsolete, awful or just plain stupid that we are horrified that people might be . . . depending on the information.”
I don’t depend on information from my grandparents for those same reasons. (J/K I LOVE MY GRANDPARENTS)

Hot off the success of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” Editor Jason Rekulak has amalgamated a new smash mash-up: “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.” Here is the awesome trailer:
Money quote from Rekulak interview: “Well, our monster-to-Austen ratio is higher than in the last book, about 60-40 (that’s 60 Austen, 40 me). That’s proportionally more monsters, swordfights, and submarines.”
This naturally led us to ask, what other literary masterpieces will undergo a re-working? Rekulak was kind enough to send along a few pages from his new (old) projects.

I thought this was pretty cool. Courtesy of The Daily What, a List of the Ten Oldest Still Inhabited Cities. Topping the list is Damascus, Syria, which has existed in one form or another for 12,000 years.
Huh. I always thought the oldest city was Palm Beach, Florida. (Zing*)
*DOYOUGETIT? THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE ARE HELLAOLD!
p.s. It turns out the oldest continuously inhabited city in the continental U.S. actually is in Florida.
Hey guys, sorry we didn’t really post any new content this week, we were too busy 1) writing short stories we don’t intend for anyone to read, 2) pouring our hearts out to our friend about our girl troubles, 3) playing guitar, 4) being glad we aren’t in Boston, 5) institutional investing. Respectively.
But hey, I’ve got nothing to do Sunday. If the weather is bad, and I feel creative, maybe I’ll write something for you. Until then, get out there and make it a great weekend.
Additional Time Waster Here.
Hey gang! How was your 4th of July weekend? Mine was pretty boss! Just How Awesome was my weekend, you ask? Here’s the soundtrack:
1) The saga of Bloodninja…
2) Man, first the kids with their sexting and now this? I really juussst missed an awesome time to grow up.
Whatever, today’s 14 year olds just masturbate to whatever internet porn they can find. There’s no skill in that. In my day, there was an art to timing things jusssst right with the programming on MTV. Hot dancing girls? Get ready! Cut away to a sweaty Alex Van Halen? Yikes, hold up or else you’re gay.
3) Some Band named “Lunar Sway” is playing in San Francisco on July 21. Supposedly they are really good, but I’ve never heard/befriended/drank with them before, so I can’t say for sure.
