Winner of the Jerk Contest

My wife has a post up on her blog about the ways in which she thinks she can be a jerk sometimes. I disagree with her findings because I don’t think she’s a jerk. You can read the post here and I’m sure you’ll agree with me that she’s more than OK.

When it comes to being a terrible person I pretty much take the prize in our house. Need proof? Allow me to remind you of the time I had a poker showdown with a little person, or my questionable donations to charity.

Who’s the jerk now?

Now that the jerk debate has been settled here are some things I’ve read today that I think are worth checking out. Some of these are a few days old but I was behind on my Google Reader reading.

The CDP has another mix tape exchange going. Get in now and don’t worry, there’s no chance of getting a mix from me. While I endorse the mix exchange I have banned myself from participation.

My favorite American in Turkey (and the subject of my only blog interview) blogs about her quirks.

WFMU shares two classics, the tale of the Yo La Tengo and Daniel Johnston on the air together and some stuff from the late great Bo Diddley.

Finally, I’ve had some new stuff up recently at LA Metblogs, if you haven’t had enough of me already.

  1. Oh, baby, you know I can never get enough of you. Maybe tonight I’ll get a song about the radiator?

  2. Amateurs. If MY husband and I had a jerk contest…well, let’s just say that it would go on long into the night, and probably not resolve, ever.

    Well we’re leaving out the criminally negligent stuff.

  4. thanks for the shout out! i must go read the jerk posts now. i seriously can’t imagine you being a jerk. just the thought of a poker fight with the little person cracks me up!

  5. I also greatly appreciate the shout-out. I had never read the ‘midget poker’ story, and I can honestly say it was the funniest thing I’ve read all week.

  6. Hey, happy birthday in advance! I’m not gonna be able to make it to your outing. I have a meeting at a bar in North Hollywood at the same exact time. If you see my iPod where I left it, will you grab it for me?

  7. I think you should record your greatest home appliance hits. I will totally whore it out to the scenesters in Phoenix. Those dumb bastards will pretend to like anything that’s “underground”.
