again funny


I got no thoughts on the election or the marathon or the financial situation to share with ya’. But what I do have, via Gawker, is the puppycam.

UPDATE. That link seems down … here’s a new one.

fashion week coverage

Here is The Derek Rose Blog’s Fashion Week coverage. You didn’t think I would let you down on this, did you? Okay so it is just choppy cell phone video I took from the Joanna Mastroianni show on Tuesday. I did what I could!

(I have other videos here (the finale when everyone came […]

a list of demands

I love this commercial, too. The song is “List of Demands” by Saul Williams. Awesome.

The athletes shown include Adrian Peterson, NFL rookie of the year, racing a dragster; Kevin Durant of the SuperSonics running in a red jersey; Abby Wambach of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, in a resistance band; Hope Solo also […]


So I have — finally — dropped a couple pounds and am down to 170, according to yesterday’s scale reading. I did get this email from my little teenage half-brother Isaac in New Zealand — the image was titled “beat that.jpg” Yowza!

But Isaac, don’t you know if you are going to write boastful […]

trip to fenway with c’s grandmother

So this past weekend C. and I went on this little road trip through New England to take her 86-year-old grandmother to the Red Sox game. As I mentioned before, her grandmother is a huge BoSox fan who has watched every game but one for the past two years. It has been something to, in […]

But it is a little weird in that I have today and Thursday off instead of Saturday and Sunday. But nevermind. My big project today: I took […]

bad blogger…

Sorry the blog has been so boring lately. With the new job I’m not supposed to blog much about journalism-related topics. With the new girlfriend I’m in a good, drama-free relationship so don’t have too much to say about dating contretemps. With the Red Sox off-season and the Patriots eliminated there isn’t much to say […]

the c-party

Cruella + Cookie Monster Originally uploaded by Mike Roberts NYC.

Fabulous Kiwi friend Cat turned 30 on Saturday and threw a C-party to celebrate. That is Soccer Chick as Cruella de Ville and Tallman as the Cookie Monster. (She’s not short; he’s just 6-foot-4). His girlfriend for some reason declined to go as a […]

Funny sexual consent form video


Flygirl and me at H.’s party the other day.

axl rose

Saw Guns n’ Roses live at MSG on Friday with Cat and Tallman. Or should I say, saw Axl Rose? He was the only member of the old band there, and this was definitely not the GNR of old. With four(!) guitarists, two keyboard players and some guy on base, this was something new and […]
