a public service announcement

to all men worldwide:

when one's hairline begins to recede, one has several options. one can

(a) grin an
d bear it

(b) grin and, uh, bare it (that's jack nicholson, btw)


(c) glue in some extra hair and hope no one notices.

for the love of God, don't pick (b) or (c). (b) scares the children, and (c) just makes everyone laugh.

you're welcome.

for a livelier discussion of britney-related stuffs...

...check out the results of Stereogum's Photoshop Britney contest. ha!


maybe she *did* have a compelling reason for shaving her head. a stupid reason, and one which only serves to prove why she needed drug testing in the first place, but still a reason. there's hope yet!

Belated story to share

... even though I have many other things I should be doing, and this is old news by now, I figured I'd let you all know I was alive and blogging by relating the following dialogue from the recent recruitment weekend for my neuroscience program.

I am pretty sure this constitutes the absolute high point of my life thus far. It occurred last Saturday night at Barcelona between me and a female recruit whose name I never learned, but whom we shall call Reasonably Attractive Asian Recruit (RAAR) for the sake of the dialogue:

Me: So, then there was the summer that I spent in Winston-Salem working for the Hanes underwear catalogue...
RAAR: (COMPLETELY SERIOUS) So, were you, like, an underwear model?

This actually happened. I have witnesses.


"the mathematics of love" was stuck in my head and it made me happy, so I thought I'd share the happy, but I couldn't find it on youtube and had to settle for this instead. meh. it's almost as good.

uh, matt, care to comment?

can you *honestly* say she's still hot? yes, the ratty uncombed hair is gone, but...it's GONE. as is she. completely gone. she also threw up in her car last weekend and then WENT OUT TO PARTY SOME MORE. if guys can look at that and still find the vomiter (and then partier) even remotely attractive, there is no f-ing way I should be single.

PS -- I am totally digging this post-label thingy.

update: cnn.com has the whole sordid head-shaving story here.
