Do we have a thread for bitchy reviews? If so, this definitely belongs there (if not I should start one I think):


Quote
Item #02-759472 Reclaimed rustic chicken coop

Williams-Sonoma says: "Built exclusively for us in their urban garden workshop, Laughing Chickens Coops have a classic, old-world design, constructed from the highest quality reclaimed redwood. $65 delivery."

Price: $759.95 (with painted chicken), $599.95 (plain)

Notes from Drew: This is a real item in the catalog. And honestly, if you're buying a goddamn chicken coop from a catalog, why NOT spring for the painted chicken? It was hand painted in an urban garden workshop, people. You CANNOT say you are a true farm-to-table household unless you have a coop to call your own. Muffy Wilshire and her fam bought a coop last year and now they can't live without it. Could you imagine having a frittata made from STORE-BOUGHT eggs now? I shudder at the thought. You can also get a beehive box for $500 if you're a fucking crazy person. Seriously, a chicken coop. People with money are so good at throwing it away.

Item #02-4381232 Acorn Twine Holder

Williams-Sonoma says: "Polished alderwood with 76 yards of linen twine. Made in Italy."

Price: $26

Notes from Drew: Oh, thank God! Thanksgiving was mere weeks away and I was like OH FUCK, WE'RE OUT OF TWINE. AND WE HAVE NO PLACE TO DISPENSE SAID TWINE. Sure, any asshole can go to the store and buy a roll of cooking string for half a penny and keep that twine in a drawer for the one time per year someone in the house has to tie up a raw turkey only to fail miserably and get salmonella deep inside his palms for years and years. But I want CLASSY twine, you know? I want my twine to say something about ME.

Not sure why this guy thinks he's so funny. Humor =/= CAPITAL LETTERS. Some of the things he reviews are useless, sure, but some aren't. And that's about the going price for a chicken coop of that size (although not so sure about the ugly wooden chicken decorating it). Actually that's a pretty good price. Looks like it's got three nesting boxes and would likely hold six or so chickens.

Pumpkin soup tureens are not my thing but Williams Sonoma has hardly cornered the market on unattractive dishes. Also, twine holders do come in handy, but it's easy to make one yourself with a sizable jar and something to punch a hole in the lid.

Maybe I should start a things that amuse me thread.

In starbucks on my laptop.  The little nerdy white guy on my left is listening to rap songs.  His headphones are pretty loud and I think the rapper is saying "get that pussy wet" over and over.  I can make out the pussy pretty clearly.

Meanwhile, the tough looking black dude at the table in front of me is watching 80s videos.  He was watching Michael Jackson, at my last peek it was Take on me by Aha

From a director telling me why he wants me to voice a character:

"I want someone regal and superior sounding, but capable of warming up when the scene requires - so I thought of you"

Yep..

Details!

Director for what? Did you accept?

If you were to censor the first half of every mention of the word "Rock" in the Stray Cats song, "Rock this Town," it would sound absolutely filthy.

If you were to swap the word "town" for "cunt", it would be even filthier.

Also, if you were to swap every word with "cumchugger," it'd never scan.

Isn't "cumchugger" a Tumbawumba song?

I actually think this would be a funny project, the original idea that is.  Edit the song so every "rock" is replaced by a "beep".

I was just looking at the Seaview Cafe & Lounge menu, and I noticed Amtrak charges $2.25 for a bowl of ramen. What is that, like a 10,000% markup?
