Best of the Decade: Television

8 Dec
Television is good for you

Television is good for you

In just a few short weeks, the 00s will be over. With it will go our youth, our innocence, our good looks, our days of underage drinking and our fears of a belated Y2K meltdown. We here at We Have Internets (man, we should have thought of a better blog name) have decided to celebrate the decade the same way as every other newspaper, magazine, website, blog, Twitter feed and diary entry out there:  With a series of top 10 lists.  Each list will be brought to you by a different blogger.  Marc is first with the Top 10 TV Shows of the 2000s.

Criteria: The television show had to start sometime between 2000-2009 with the exception of The Sopranos and West Wing because Marc argued that they didn’t hit their stride until this decade. I consented because, eh, what the hell. No one reads this blog anyway.

List-maker’s Qualifications: Marc is a lonely, lonely man who watches a lot of TV.

Alyssa: Anything BUT Status Quo

Alyssa's new status message: NOT SINGLE TONIGHT!

Alyssa's new status message: NOT SINGLE TONIGHT!

Status messages on Gmail or Facebook (wait, shouldn’t Claire be writing this?) reveal a lot about a person.  Everyone has their own style, their own unique way of telling the world what’s up.  Claire’s typically have to do with me (UGH MOLLY!) or journalism (reading about pampered pets for a Q&A tomorrow. Question one: WTF? Question two: Stop it).   Drew’s are either rap lyrics or hilarious (Drew…is gonna go shirtless with a cold one in the driveway. You think property values are down now? Just you wait).  Mazall’s are foreign and minimalistic (le sigh), while Mene’s and Evan’s just never change.  Ever.

But no one compares to Alyssa.  Those lucky enough to see her name at the left side of their Gmail screen are given SERIOUS access to Alyssa’s brain, for good or for bad, because nothing is off-limits.  A random sampling of Alyssa’s topical range…. Continue reading

How the Other Half Lives: the Black Tie Edition

Not our Claire

Not our Claire

We don’t say “No” to much. Throw in a nice round number of celebs, free martinis, and a reason to wear sparkles, and you pretty much seal the deal. Which is what happened Tuesday night, more or less, with a way fancy event we are calling the “Newsweek 99” (wait for it).

Oh, except that Molly did say “No”, for unfortunate reasons we won’t go into here. Needless to say, Claire was wrought with devastation. “BUT WE COULD HAVE BLOGGED IT!,” she e-squeaked. “And we still can,” said Molly.

So here it is folks, a time-coded comparison of our Wednesday nights. Claire in pink, obvi. Continue reading

How the Other Half Lives, a new blog series

23 Apr

summer08-015The other half being Claire and myself. So much of the weblog is us interacting with our beautiful and voluminous readers, but rarely do you get to glimpse raw, uncut Claire and Molly interaction. So here it is, our NEW SERIES.

Fine. Actually, I just needed an outlet to show Claire making a real, live, semi-relevant sports reference in casual conversation. Never mind the fact that she can’t spell. Here goes: Continue reading
