Chew on This

I had all these little tasty morsels of news nuggets just lying around my “possible-post” folder and none of them really warranted a full fledged entry all their own. So here’s a little round-up of bloggy items that caught my attention.

LC from OC

It has been “reported” that OC native and former star of Laguna Beach, Lauren Conrad has just had her clothing line dropped from all the Los Angeles Kitson boutiques. Such a shame. It always breaks me up inside when a spoiled celebutant from who never deserved a stupid clothing line to begin with suddenly finds that she is not very successful. Meanwhile, in the real world, people like me are trying to figure out how to afford a home located somewhere near the ass-end of Anaheim. A goal that seems almost unattainable. I guess we’re both failures.

Angels Fatigue

Guess what? People don’t like the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Shocking. A snazzy post over at the LA Metroblog outlines the reasons why. If there was ever a topic that was more befitting of an LA/OC crossover blog post the Angels would be it. So this begs the question, if everyone else hates the Angels what does Orange County think? I smell a poll coming on…

Bat-shit Crazy

We may (or may not) want to be saddled with the Angels in our county but there is no way in hell we ever wanted convicted Manson devotee and psycho killer “Susan Atkins to be freed to spend her last days with her husband in Orange County.” Luckily that isn’t gonna happen as “an 11-0 vote, [by] a state parole board on Tuesday denied a petition”. Let her stay in the 909 because we certainly don’t want her. Yucky poo.

O’Neill

O’Neill clothing recently flung open the doors to the company’s one and only flagship store located at the Anaheim GardenWalk. Oooooh Aaaaaaah.They’re awfully proud of their big fake “wave wall” – apparently they’ve never laid eyes on a Ron Jon? Also, while I loves me some surf wear, I’d rather see the classic Orange County original Pacific Sunwear open a flagship store instead of O’Neill. We’ll just call it local pride.

That’s all there is. Run along now children, there’s nothing more to see here…

    Really? Could Susan Atkins do any more damage to the OC than Dennis Rodman or Tawny Kittain? I don’t thinks so.

    I think Disney should ask to have Chucky moved down here and open up Mansonland in California Adventure. It could feature all the psycho killers of California history.

    Such an active and tasteful imagination you have.
