"1-800-DENTIST, Can I help you?...Not like that!"

TOTC has an amusing post about the "dark side" of working at 1-800-DENTIST.

...In addition to hustling from acting to vocal to dance classes, she is a phone operator for 1-800-Dentist. You know, the place you call when you need a recommendation for a dentist? Well, I was catching up with Erin and asked how the job is going. Turns out there is a dark side to the handy 1800 number. Let’s just say it consists of morons, bored teenaged girls, and a pervert who has become known to all the 1-800-Dentist operators as the “P Man.” Interested? Read on…...

Hellooooo...Is it me you're looking for?

My Blog Is Poop and Stereogum have some hilarious musings and play-by-play analysis of this unforgettable classic music video from Lionel Ritchie. A sampling...

Lionel Richie "Hello" - JACKPOT! Best. Video. Ever. In case you haven't seen it, Lionel Richie plays a teacher that stalks one of his students who happens to blind. Now, if you ask me, that's just lazy. Who couldn't stalk a blind person? You don't even have to hide! But anyway, Lionel spends the entire video following her around and singing "Hellooooo.... Is it me you're looking for?" which is kind of fucked up if you think about it. If I did that to a blind girl people would call me 'evil' and say I was going to hell. "Hey, Blind Girl! Is it me you're looking for?" What's romantic about that? So Lionel stalks her for the entire video, and then, at the end, we get the best payoff ever. The blind girl happens to be an expert sculptor. She calls Lionel into the art room to show him the sculpture she's been working on and says, "This is how I see you." She rotates the bust around and there it is... Patrick Ewing. Seriously, the thing looks just like old #33, it's hilarious. Lionel then sings "Hellooooo" one last time and the video ends. The don't make videos like this anymore. A true classic.

I'm Sorry
Hey kids,
I know it's been a million years since I've posted but I started a new job in the interim and I don't really have the time or freedom to post the way I used to. I have been trying to figure out how to handle the situation without retiring the Daily Roundup indefinitely and I think I have come up with a compromise. My main concern is that I am a little leery of installing the picture posting software on the work computer here, so what I am going to do is just post without pictures, like back in the good old days. So posting will not be as colorful and pretty (or as frequent) as it was back in the salad days of boredom and job hatred, but it will resume once more!

Beat to the Punch Again

Mine was going to be called the "Fab-loid" Posted by Hello

So Lindsayism has been doing this thing where she is posting people's "high-deas"- "ideas that you come up with when you're stoned, or that sound like the person who came up with them was stoned."...and it's a little scary, but out of the 4 reader-submitted high-deas she posted, I have independently had 2 of them myself. And I mean I've developed the idea to the point of multiple discussions of how to make it happen. Leah can vouch for both of them. What does this say about me and my ideas?...Scary.

Here are the ones that I HAD FIRST!!!

#1) The Cell phone drunk dialer block:

"Many people are familiar with the breathalizers built into automobiles that force multi-DUI offenders to prove sobriety before starting the engine.Cell phones should have a similar feature. It could be built right into the microphone, and would prevent people from, oh I dunno, calling their exes at 4:23 and unleashing a furious string of profanity and/or admissions of sexual confusion.On the reverse end, it would be handy to see the blood-alcohol content of incoming callers, to prevent the return call from said ex, who takes it upon herself to inform you of how many of your friends she's slept with."
- Alex Blagg
This idea has already sort of been stolen by Virgin Mobile...

#2) The Personal Tabloid:

"So I said, what if there were a weekly gossip magazine a la US or InTouch or Star, but instead of obsessively chronicling the embarrassing things that happen to Lindsay Lohan et al, it would be about me and my friends? Alice immediately got excited about this concept and we started taking paparazzi stalker photos of everyone in the room, including a meticulously staged shot of Alice with a fake black eye. Everyone was like "You guys are going to wake up tomorrow and realize this was a Highdea." (Literally). We were like "No no this is actually going to be really funny."
And: voila. It is.
- Emily Gould and Alice Wetterlund

I am SO jealous that these two ladies actually brought this idea into fruition. Leah and I were going to do it, prompted by our staged paparazzi shots of Billy and Heather canoodling, but it never happened. Oh well. More power to those who can actually make the High-dea happen. And by the by, I call MY High-deas, Reb-elations...

Jen and Brad: Splitzville

A nation mourns. Posted by Hello

I have to say that I feel genuinely sad about this one. They really did seem so in love and happy. But maybe it's what they get for hogging so much prime genetic material? No, that was mean. Well anyway, even though I really do feel sympathetic, I must also point out my elementary, yet highly effective Microsoft Paint alterations on the picture- I'm so proud! I can be sad and proud at the same time, right? RIGHT?

Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston announce split
Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have separated after four-and-a-half years of marriage but remain "committed and caring friends," the couple have said.

"We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate," Pitt and Aniston, who first met on a dinner date in 1998, said in a joint statement initially published by People magazine on its web site.

"For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media," the statement said.

"This decision is a result of much thoughtful consideration. We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another. We ask in advance for your kindness and sensitivity in the coming months."

Play that funky music, white boy

You absolutely MUST check out this crazy dancing trombonist on the Steve Harvey show. He's got some serious moves. I feel comfortable saying that this may be the funniest thing ever featured on the Steve Harvey show. Trust me, you'll be glad you saw it- it will brighten your day...

P.S. How great is it that I was able to find that "caution: trombone player with attitude" sign to illustrate this post? I was so happy...I heart google images!

Brainwashed Freaks

"Cleansing the soul"...give me a fucking break Posted by Hello

Thanks to James for pointing me to this absurd bit of gossip regarding our favorite cult, the Kabbalists. I know I say this alot but...ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!

In more good news for the victims of the tsunami: water is on the way. But not just any water. Kabbalah water.

Leaders of the currently hot off-shoot of Judaism have sent more than 10,000 liters of the trendy bottled water to the disaster-stricken people of Indonesia. The drink is the favorite of celebs such as Madonna and Demi Moore. “The Kabbalah Centre has begun raising tens of thousands of dollars to ship their water to South East Asia,” a Kabbalah spokesman told The Scoop. “Our goal is raising one million for this project.”

From: David
Date: Saturday, January 01, 2005 11:29:00 AM

Dear Rebecca

I saw your amazing profile and just had to write
you. On top of that, you have such incredible eyes,
they are truly captivating. I would love to look into
them for real. They are the eyes of a cat, playful
and seductive.

I am David. I am a filmmaker living in Beverly Hills.
I am 5'11/180/light brown hair/blue eyes and
athletic. I am creative, intelligent, ambitious and
passionate. I am looking for a woman with those
same qualities and you seem to embody them.

If you are looking for two strong arms to hold you
and a sharp mind to converse with, then I am the
man for you.

Let's start this New Year out right.

Best Wishes,
