BUZZ GUIDE: Pavement, Law and Order, and Cats in Outfits (make up my soul)


When I was a wee angsty teenager I was sheparded through life by the soft smirking voice of Stephen Malkmus in the sea of feedback and feeling that was Pavement. Fast forward more than few years later to angsty adult me who never really mentally left the nineties (or teenagerdom) still held together by repeated listens to Slanted and Enchanted and Wowee Zowee and the few other amazing Pavement albums and more than a few viewings of Singles. The last video is a live version of my all time favorite Pavement song, Summer Babe, which to me has always sounded like the morning after feels.


I watch every single episode of every type of Law and Order every time it’s on the tv when I’m watching. This includes reruns and rerun marathons. To date I have probably heard the “da-dum” sound forty million times. Which is why it feels like a spoon scraping out my intenstines to tell you what you probably already know: Original Law and Order has officially been cancelled. Once I picked myself up off the bathroom floor (a la Izzy Stevens in Gray’s Anatomy, another TV fav) and watched what was left of Jack McCoy on my DVR, I comforted myself with the fact that I would forever have my memories of all the ADAs past forever. Then I happened upon some amazing info. When one door closes another swings wide open people: there is a Law and Order: Los Angeles in the works. All is not lost. Det. Lenny Briscoe smiles down on us from heaven.


I’m really over-sharing here, and I realize the internet has truly advanced modern society and communication and business etc, but for me the best part of the internet is that it allows me quick access to photos of cats in outfits. Such as from

Another thing I enjoy on the internet is the Hollywood Is Calling website, from which you can order phone calls from “celebrities.” For a mere $19.95 you can receive a call from the likes of Lou Ferrigno (The Hulk), Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding of Save By The Bell fame), and my personal favorite, Ron Palillo, aka Arnold Horshack.Nothing says “Happy Birthday” like a call from F list celeb who hasn’t worked since 1994.

Oooh! Oooh! Mr. Koterrrr.
