Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh. More than 1,100 people were killed. As detailed in this story, some progress has been made in improving conditions for Bangladeshi factory workers, but there is still a long way to go, particularly as large American retailers like Target and Wal-Mart haven’t signed on to the international inspection agreement. (They say they’re doing their own inspections.)
The victims’ fund also remains critically underfunded as many brands that bought clothes from the factory—including JC Penney and Benetton—have failed to make contributions.
A bunch of old Andy Warhol computer art was found on old diskettes.
This is perfect on so many levels.
It has come to my attention numerous times that there are other show producers at MNN who have a problem with me or a problem with The Chris Gethard Show.
Next week, any and all of these people are invited to be on my show live so they can discuss their problems with me to my face.
Please spread word.
Q:What movie are you most looking forward to in the coming months? What pop culture phrases have crept into your everyday vocabulary? What would be your ultimate super-group and the ultimate cover song for them to perform? How much do you think my head weighs (and please tell me you get that reference because no one ever does but I bet unicornery will if you publish this)? OK that's all, I've had an epic amount of iced coffee.
YEAHHHHHH ICED COFFEE WHATUP. I am most excited to see Only Lovers Left Alive, and I am seriously wondering when it’s gonna make it’s way to the Bay Area because HELLO IT HAS BEEN TWO WEEKS ALREADY AND I NEED THIS. I think Tumblr phrases have crept into my vocabulary more than general pop culture stuff, but a lot of that is fandom so it kinda counts, yeah? I’m trying to think of examples now and failing epically. kanyeshrug.gif IS THAT A KIDS IN THE HALL REF? If not I do not get it, and I might be wrong about it being Kids in the Hall, it might be another sketch show MY MEMORIES OF OLD SKETCHES ARE SOMETIMES VERY CONFUSED. Or it might not be a sketch at all that you’re referencing in which case I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. This has been capslock crazy time with Sarah.
Q:How are you doing you wonderful girl? How's life? How'd you sleep? Any cool dreams?
JAAAAAAKE You’re the best (ARROOUUUND - that’s just for picklesandwine and unicornery I CAN’T CONTROL THE IN JOKES GUYS)! I slept WONDERFULLY because I had to take benadryl for my sneezy face and that shit puts me out like a LIGHT. I’m one of those weirdos who only occasionally remembers dreams, and when I do they’re usually recurring ones, so nothing weird or fun from last night, I’m sorry to report. I half expected to have the dream I used to have over and over (and OVER) about being stuck on a never-ending version of It’s A Small World just because I read that article about how they’re making a movie from the ride, but I CAME OUT ON TOP THERE. Fuck that ride, man.
