Wow. I thought I had found my niche here with Hater of the Year. I was just starting to get into a good flow: hating shit, writing about it, et cetera. But yesterday, I stumbled across a website that almost made me call it quits- Hot Chicks With Douchebags. I wish I had stolen the idea and passed it as my own before it became popular come up with the idea first!

If ever you need some editorial assistance, I'm your man… I hate douchebags!

LA Clippers win their first playoff series in my lifetime. I am, along with thousands of other fans, eagerly awaiting Sports Guy's 10,000+ word, Gladwell-esque exegesis on the topic.

Life immitates art for the cast of the Sopranos: Artie Bucco gets busted for a Brooklyn slalom, and "Muscles Marinara" for stealing TVs, crappy guido shirts and beating store managers.

Cracked Magazine, which I truthfully didn't realize still existed, has a hilarious piece on Sportcenter's Most Cliched Catchphrases. My vote goes to Craig Kilborn for this gem: I got 99 problems, but that pitch ain't one. (via Deadspin)

Avery Cardoza's Player Magazine gets some Assimilated Negro treatment in The Devil's Publicist. I was always a fan of his "relationship stock market" theory and this quote cracks me up:

Of course everyone wants diversity in their portfolio, but some people do stay focused in one sector. I have a friend who swears by the Big Titties industry. All his money is always tied up in Big Titties.

*aka, I am too hungover and lazy to post an actual post, so here's what I'm reading this morning.

Is it cold in here?

No?

Hmm… It must be the douche-chills I just got from looking at this picture.

Hate Break: HOTY 4/2006 Playlist… April 22, 2006

When I first got an iPod in 2001, I began making monthly playlists as a way to force new music into my listening rotation. Along the way, I decided to keep the mixes to about 80 minutes so that I could burn a copy for anyone who enjoyed them. Inspired by a recent visit to sound.as.language (a great read), here is my April 2006 playlist: (more…)

I Hate Blogs… April 15, 2006

…yet I've always wanted to have a blog. I am a liberal arts educated, professional twentysomething living in Brooklyn, New York. I have lived in New York City for nearly 6 years now and I have had many memorable experiences and met many memorable people. I am similar to a large portion of New Yorkers in many regards and like many New Yorkers I am what can be best described as a "Hater." So much so that after years of observing the great range and scope of my hate a friend once referred to me as the "Hater of the Year."

So that's what I'm calling this blog – Hater of the Year. It's going to be my platform to vent about all of the hateworthy and hateable. I plan to approach all of these miserable things with a sense of humor and maybe even compare and contrast them with all of the things that I love. Hopefully you'll find it entertaining.
