Boner Party doesn’t work well in a book, but This Is Why You’re Fat does work, and I don’t need to work in book publishing to make that statement with 100% confidence. […]
Boner Party the book works the same way Vice’s “Do’s and Don’ts” worked as a book (which I purchased and have given out as gifts as well)
It may not be a book you would buy, but I see a similar audience to the Vice book.
Boner Party the book is an AWESOME idea whose time has COME!
It is an AWESOME idea. It’s true. I had a chance to read some portions of it, and I’ll say it to your face — it’s pretty fucking funny and pretty rad to read. If you’re the kind of person that just wants a picture book, then “this is why your fat” is a good book to own. If you enjoy creative writing and jokes and shit, then fucking hell, Boner Party is the jamb.
you’re ALL wrong. the Boner Party book is going to be a series of essays by Noam Chomsky.
This is completely correct. Boner Party the book needs to happen more than any other Tumblr or Twitter book.
With Foster’s assistance, I’m trying not to burn Gawker down tonight.
Please be gentle. Oh who am I kidding, Young Manhattanite is going to have my ass.
Good luck, man. Doing awesome so far. To be honest, there hasn’t been a good overnight guy since Ryan Tate, so here’s hoping you’re around for a while. If you can stand the lack of sleep.
Vaguely unrelated somewhat: digging the site re-design.
maaaaaybe five people might care about this, but I’ve been coming here for over a year and not known where the Bukowski seat was at the bar. the door guy told me. here’s the view.
When I do eventually come out to LA for vacation, I’m going to demand that we go here for a pint.
An utterly foul-mouthed, quick-paced, and completely hilarious film about politics and the idiots behind it. It’s on Netflix now, and if you’re a big fan of Wag the Dog or The West Wing then I’d say it’s impossible for you to dislike this film. The dialogue is sharp and quick, but they had more than enough people helping along with it. Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche, director Armando Iannucci, with additional dialogue by Ian Martin. That’s a lot of voices in the room and turned out something really great.
So now I have two more movies to see to complete both screenplay categories for this year’s Oscars. An Education and The Messenger. I’ve seen seven Best Picture nominees too, with An Education left, The Blind Side [can’t justify $12 for that movie] and Avatar still to watch.
Have you seen The Thick of It? It’s a British show by the same creators. Several characters carry over from the series to In The Loop. You should check it out.
Actually, I’ve heard of that show, and didn’t realize. Thanks though, I’ll definitely be checking it out.
This chick. This chick is so fucking funny. She told a story that made me laugh till I cried. GONNA STALK HER.
Seriously she was fucking HILARIOUS. Really good story. Probably my favorite of the evening, though you all did an awesome job.
Thanks for posting my stuff!
Man, thanks for being awesome.
The rest of you: perhaps you all should be following his sketch journal. Go. Do.
Batman by Rafael Grampa, posted by danhacker, because I can’t help myself when it comes to Grampa art. Just look at that chain mail beneath his gloves and boots, the selected tears in his uniform where the muscle strains would be. Besides Pope, there is no one better at detail and wear and tear than Grampa.
