Quote of the Day

Matt Ufford, in the Kissing Suzy Kolber Fantasy Football and Sex Advice Mailbag- America's second-greatest weekly sex advice column- channeling Lester Bangs in "Almost Famous":

Let’s get this out of the way: your job isn’t cool. Nothing “freelance” is cool. No journalist is cool, except maybe Anderson Cooper. Most jobs of ANY KIND aren’t cool. Blogging isn’t cool. Lawyer: not cool. Doctor: not cool. Any job that a 19-year-old can get: automatically not cool. Even if you did have a truly cool job — like firefighter or Marine scout-sniper or bare-knuckle shark fighter — if you bragged about how cool it was, then you’d just come off sounding like a douchebag.
