When Heathens Suffer

My Jew friend Nevin Barich, who is as hopelessly straight as he is hopelessly Jewish, sent me this e-mail:

I have recently launched a new blog called PROJECT RUN(A)WAY: A HATER'S PERSPECTIVE. Basically, rather than being a typical fan's blog, it goes the opposite direction and blogs about a show that the writer (me) can't stand.....

Now, I'm told that the majority of people watching this show are straight women and gay men. In short, the exact demographics of Bamboo Nation! So I was wondering...if you would consider a small mention of my new blog in Bamboo Nation....

If you could help a white, non-Asian, straight brotha out, I'd be much obliged.

Oddly enough, the only person that I know for sure who watches Project Runway is a straight guy. But if Nevin's demographical information is to be believed, then some of you out there will surely get a kick out of his Project Runway blog. I am giving it my ringing endorsement because Nevin is one of my favorite Jews (don't worry, Aaron and Rachel, you still rank higher than him!); he uses the phrase "crack whore" about as often as I do; and he was my brother-in-arms some years ago when we both wrote for a trade magazine about notaries. I'm not kidding. On top of all that, he's also open to new experiences, like celebrating his equally straight dad's birthday at a gay bar (detailed on his other, personal blog here and here).

So go over to his goddamn Project Runway blog and yell at him for hating Project Runway or tease him about his heterosexuality or his whiteness or his Jewishness. I personally don't even really know what Project Runway is all about (like I don't even know who the hell those people in that picture are), and I don't care. I just enjoy watching straight men suffer.

  2. That means a lot to me coming from an impartial critic.

    I've never seen Project Runway and have no plans to and don't give a shit if the entire show gets vaporized by alien invaders (actually, that would be kind of cool, but I digress), but WTF? I don't even make your list of Top Jews? Good day to you, sir. I SAID GOOD DAY.

  5. Melissa, I love you so much that I don't even consider you a Jew. You are an honorary Asian. And the Asians, as you know, are the REAL chosen people.
