As the US prepares to attack Syria, here’s a surreal little comedy sketch made right after September 11, 2001, which seems somewhat pertinent again right about now. Video courtesy of Pretty Things.
Because he didn’t learn his lesson LAST TIME when he tweeted about the Egyptian uprising “Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online at http://bit.ly/KCairo … —KC,” douchey shoe designer Kenneth Cole has done it again. This time he mocks the situation in Syrian to promote his shoes. Really, dude, wtf is wrong with you? How can you be so socially tone-deaf? Oh, wait. He just released a video saying he does these things “to promote a dialogue.” I guess it’s OK then. *facepalm* (via Twitter)
After five days of captivity in Syria, cutie-patootie super-reporter Richard Engel and three of his crew members have been freed. According to the New York Times: “While none of the crew members suffered any physical injuries, there was ‘psychological pressure,’ Mr. Akyavas told NTV. He said they were blindfolded, handcuffed, and ‘every now and then had guns pointed on our heads. It was not pleasant.’” On the Today show this morning, my future husband said, “They made us choose which one of us would be shot first, and when we refused there were mock shootings. They pretended to shoot (my camera man) Ghazi several times.” Thank God they didn’t.
Sexy super-reporter Richard Engel, NBC’s chief foreign correspondant, who day in, day out, travels to the world’s worst hell holes and somehow always looks damn fuckable doing it, is missing in Syria!
From the Atlantic Wire: “According to now widely circulated Turkish news reports, NBC hasn’t been able to get in contact with Richard Engel, or a Turkish journalist apparently working with him, since Thursday, December 11. While the Turkish media began circulating the report last night, American outlets had been operating under a news blackout per the request of NBC, as is custom for missing journalists — until now. Though news agencies stateside have honored the blackout, journalists have taken to Twitter voicing their concern.”
Omg, I looooooooooooove Richard. Please let him be alright. I can’t take any more bad news.
