Week Links

Week Links is a bunch of stuff from the week. Yes, it is a stupid, stupid pun and we deserve to be pun-ished for it. Oh Christ…

Summer is absolute shit time for dating. Everyone plans their time outside in parks or *GROAN* the Hamptons or some such place where they can use the term “sun worshipper” and pretend it doesn’t sound Jim Jonesy. And worst of all, it’s the season of the BBQ date, during which one person is awkwardly injected into a group of friends like so much Velveeta into those cheese hot dogs they used to sell. The BBQ date always ends in drunkenness.

Anyway, due to this development from the Julia Allison camp*, we have very little energy to put together any kind of passable Week Links roundup. So, much like Julia’s dates, you’re going to have to make do with what we give you and take care of yourselves later.

Update: In light of Julia’s new job, is her “please please please please” make-a-donation-to-me-via-PayPal link on her blog a little insulting? Or, actually, is it a totally fitting statement? You decide.

Dating: it could be worse.

“DATING, AS ANYONE WHO’S been to the carnival can tell you, is like a rollercoaster: It’s a lot to pay for something that could make you nauseous. But sooner or later we all take the ride.” And it doesn’t end there; the metaphor goes on to the next paragraph, doubling back on itself, and even mentioning “metaphor” but not in refence to the roller coaster one. A little piece of writing genius, that is.

Learn Jessica Alba’s dating rules. See, when she goes to hell and you go to heaven, your fates will be intertwined in that you’ll be forced to date each other.

And tomorrow. And the next day. And Friday.

Someone sent us this “Welcome to Every Date Ever” and, while kind of not usually our thing, we had to laugh at “Why don’t you sit awkwardly in my big, stupid, round papizan chair over there while you wait for me. It’s like you’re sitting in a hug!”

iPhonen’d give a fuck.

Blitzen Trapper is Datehole’s new house band.

What happens if you take all of the homophobia jokes from a Judd Apatow script that weren’t subtle enough for one of his films and turn them into one single movie?

* Fucking seriously though: Is she going to continue to write the (yet unnamed) TONY dating column? What can anyone who makes that kind of money and rolls in those circles possibly have in the way of advice for the kind of person who reads Time-Fucking-Out? Stop laughing! We’re fucking serious.

Got something? Send it to us: thedatehole [at] yahoo.com
