Around the Web – 1/1/2014

around_the_webNo more sleepin’, wastin’ our time
Midnight creepin’s first on our minds
No more lazin’ ’round the tv
You’ll go crazy–come out with me

-Billy Squier

Who am I kidding… I was sound asleep by 10:30.

Who gets the first post of 2014??  MIDWEST MARK does!  Want to know why?  Because I completely forgot to post Around the Web Tuesday morning… nothing like a little bit of absent minded irresponsibility to close out the year.

  • Kanye West wins the 2013 championship award for not-so-subtle hints.  He gave Kim Kardashian a new purse for Christmas with lesbians, a green monster and some picasso-esque thingamabobber painted on it.  You should really take a look. (Starpulse)
  • Anderson Cooper twittered a topless picture of Kathy Griffin.  Before you get overly excited, it’s just a shot of her strangely featureless back.  And what is Anderson Cooper doing around half-naked women anyway?  Maybe that’s how girlfriends get down these days.  Thank you, Anderson… but your prince is in another castle. (toofab)
  • Are you out of ideas on what to buy your favorite Midwest TV Guy (that’s me, obviously) for a belated Christmas present?  How about the latest Samsung 4KTV?  Who needs my lowly 55-inch HDTV when you can have 110 inches of intense viewing pleasure?  Let television size now be the truest measure of a man.  Remember kids, it’s not the size that matters, it’s the flow of the show.  I couldn’t think of anything else that rhymed. (Web Pro News)
  • OMG, did Dean cheat on Tori?  She has allegedly removed her wedding ring after rumors of infidelity.  On a semi-serious side note, has anybody else noticed that the older Tori Spelling gets the more she looks like Mickey Rourke?  (Hollywood Life)
  • A small brewery in Missouri took on Starbucks and clearly won in my book.  Check out their hysterical response to an asinine cease-and-desist letter (Huffington Post)

Hot chick of the day: I have no idea who this is, but I appreciate her patriotism. (celebparasite)
