Doug Dechert, a "sometime PR flack" and sometime-writer who's about 50 years old, threatened to assault former Gawker editor and current Radar writer Choire Sicha Wednesday night. Specifically, Dechert said "I'm going to punch that little prick [Choire] in his fucking face." Dechert—who was once on the receiving end of an email defenestration and a shove from Ian Spiegalman—made the threat at a book party for chaste author Dawn Eden. Which Choire Sicha did not attend. Here are the specifics, from NY Press writer Matt Harvey, who was there:
Remember when we said this was the best amateur Obama YouTube music video ever? We were wrong. We apologize. This is the best one ever. It is insane. It was on boingboing, but don't hold that against it. It is awesome. Ron Paul may be the President of the Internet, but Barack Obama is a living meme.
We all know Britney Spears has been having a tough time of it right? Well, she may have just have had a psychotic break. As in, she snapped and the Britney Spears we knew as someone who flirted with insanity but never actually went there, has gone insane. Here's the deal: So earlier today she had custody of her kids, Sean and Jayden, for a finite amount of time before she had to return them to Kevin. At the end of that time, she didn't want to give up them up after her visiting hours were over. So the LAPD came. Her lawyers (who we though she fired, and maybe she did) came. Britney, they said, is "hysterical and just wants to keep the kids overnight." And, well—as an aside, this is really sad and doesn't give us that much pleasure to report—but PageSix.com is reporting "Paramedics just showed up at Britney's house. Paramedics just rolled gurney into Spears house. Sources are now revealing to PageSix.com that "someone is being transferred to the hospital for a mental evaluation." So it might not be Britney but if anything means anything ever it probably is.
What do you watch peripherally while getting ready in the mornings? 'Today'? 'Good Morning America'? Soothing, lovable Pat Kiernan? Probably not the CW's morning show. So you probably missed DANCE FRIDAYS with the hot weather girl. Thankfully, our video people caught it, and here it is. Alternate side parking rules are in effect, btw.
